editor’s letter

Miranda Kerr is one of BAZAAR’ favourite cover stars, and over the years we have developed a collaborative relationship based on trust. As a result, more often than not, a shoot will change tact on the day when Kerr gets in the studio with the BAZAAR team, and this is exactly what happened when BAZAAR fashion director Thelma McQuillan and photographer Steven Chee flew to Los Angeles to photograph Kerr for this month’s cover story. What we captured between outfit changes was a woman who is incredibly comfortable in her own skin (and why wouldn’t you be?). The image of Kerr on the balcony of The London West Hollywood is not only beautiful, it’s also empowering; she is the epitome of health, fitness and beauty. At BAZAAR, we cover the trends…

EUGENIE KELLY Every year, BAZAAR’ deputy editor and beauty and features director travels the world to hunt down the latest and greatest spas and treatments to include in the magazine’s annual Spa Guide (it’s a tough job but someone has to do it). Kelly found one of this year’s highlights in a particularly unexpected place. “I’ve never considered rural Ireland the spa capital of the world, but Mayo’s Ashford Castle’s amazing new spa that’s housed in a bronze conservatory blew my mind. Its neutral grey-and-cream palette, the mosaic tile work, gothic-style windows and handcrafted chandeliers make for a breathtaking space that I predict will influence spa decor trends in years to come. I’m so over dark Asian-style influences,” she says. See the rest of Kelly’s picks on page 132. The next big…

letter of the month

HOME TRUTHS When I felt tears coming to my eyes as I read “No Place Like Home” [BAZAAR December], my reaction was surprise, and immense relief at the words in front of me. While not an international expat, I left home in WA to study in Sydney when I was 18 and have stayed on the East Coast ever since. My family have always been scattered across the world and my career has seen me in and out of countless airports and too many hotel rooms to remember. Two years ago, I burnt out and left my dream job to pursue a life more in line with my values. My (now) husband and I moved to the country. I sense I’m finally coming to a place where I feel more…

cover star miranda kerr

Achieving this month’s cover look boils down to one word: Pilates. And lots of it. However, if a less literal interpretation appeals, then take your cues from season one of Sex and the City (episode six, to save you time) and snap up a “naked dress” instead, care of spring/summer 2016’s slip dress trend. Opt for one in a nude tone (obviously) and then add killer heels and delicate jewellery. Miranda would approve. ON THE COVER Photographed by Steven Chee. Styled by Thelma McQuillan. Miranda Kerr wears Christian Louboutin shoes, $1350; Alinka earrings, $2100; Swarovski by Miranda Kerr necklaces, $99 each; on her left hand: Sarah & Sebastian rings, from top, $195, $400 and $650.

wish list

My style is fairly relaxed and it changes depending on my mood. Sometimes I feel like wearing a VINTAGE-INSPIRED DRESS ›12] and other days I prefer a man-style suit. I’m really into GUCCI [1] at the moment and I adore CHLOÉ[3]. , A BLACK JACKET [5] looks great teamed with denim FLARES [4]. I have a collection of DELICATE RINGS [2, 6] — they are beautifully simple. STATEMENT FLATS [8, 13] work perfectly with tailored pants. I’ve worn COMME DES GARÇONS [7] every day for 20 years. Currently, I’m using an AESOP FACE CLEANSER [9] — the smell of their products is incredible. The latest addition to my wardrobe is this Gucci handbag in PINK LEATHER [10]. For me it was all about the , colour. MANIAMANIA [11] is one…
