LET’S CALL IT. The fashion world has had a diversity problem. But, thankfully, over the past two years there’s been a seismic shift for the better. While beauty was once defined as exclusively young, thin and Caucasian, increasingly the runway stars/models of the moment are multi-ethnic, young, old, plus-sized, cisgender, transgender … and let’s not forget the ‘nodels’ (translation: non-models, also known as ‘creatives’). Now it’s no longer just about skin colour. It’s size-, age-, sex- and religion-related, too. ‘Diversity’ was the buzzword of 2018, but the varied representation on the S/S 2019 ready-to-wear runways this past September and October felt for the first time like more than just a token gesture. Why? Because it went largely unnoticed. And if that doesn’t demonstrate real acceptance, then what does? One of the most…

Patric Shaw The New York-based photographer and husband of artist Christina Zimpel, the latter whose work was featured as the backdrop to the Michael Kors Collection S/S 2019 show captured Zimpel in their own home in Brooklyn for this issue’s Fashionable Life feature (page 209). The sitting was an intimate family affair; a husband photographing his wife, with their sons assisting ‘on set’. “Christina has always had an influence on my career as a photographer,” Shaw says. “We have the same taste and talk through most projects I’ve done. It was nice for her to be on the other side of the camera for a change.” Working with my family was … “a lot of fun. Ali [Alexander] is an artist and photo assistant, and Callum is a gaffer for the movie…

With a girl-next-door sensibility and genetically #blessed bone structure (her three siblings are all models too), Colorado-born beauty Taylor Hill was destined for life in front of the camera. With a gig as a Victoria’s Secret Angel, an ambassadorship with Lancôme under her belt and her old-school good looks, Hill is a perfect fit for global fashion director Carine Roitfeld’s “Stardust” story, photographed by Mario Sorrenti (page 121). Her personal style is classic Angel off-duty: rugged-up soft knits paired with vintage Levi’s interspersed with smouldering sex appeal on the red carpet — often wearing designs by fellow all-American star Ralph Lauren. Beauty-wise, she values a ‘less is more’ philosophy, sticking to fresh skin and a simple lip, and keeping a focus on the eyes: “Lancôme Grandiôse Mascara is my favourite,”…

“For everyday style, I lean towards tomboyish tendencies while being accessorised by my girlish heart.” BEAUTY I am in love with several Aesop products. My MORNING RITUAL includes the Aesop bath gel and the face toner that I use as a cleanser. David Mallett is my go-to for my hair products, and the hot hair treatment in his Paris salon happens every three months for me and my daughters. My hair is SILKY and shiny for weeks to come. I ONLY WEAR the Jo Malone Body Crème in Nectarine Blossom & Honey. It moisturises my body and leaves a slight hint of a scent that gets COMPLIMENTS from everyone, including several otherwise disgruntled Parisian taxi drivers. That’s worth something already! MY STYLE MY ATTITUDE towards getting dressed is to keep the fuss at bay.…

sound of silence

IMAGINE YOU HAVE BEEN SEXUALLY HARASSED. The situation is serious enough that you feel compelled to speak out — to assert yourself, to confront the perpetrator, to alert others to the predator, and to try to minimise the likelihood that it will happen to someone else. Then realise the person you are accusing may hold all the cards legally — the accused can cry defamation and the burden of proof is entirely on you. If you have deep pockets and powerful connections, then the legal fight may be worth having, but for many victims of harassment, Australian defamation laws are ominous and silencing. Compare them to the laws in the US, which places most of the legal burden on the person who has ostensibly been defamed — the accused must prove…
