editor’s letter

“I’m not beautiful, I’m different.”KATE MOSS Recently I was reading old issues of US Harper’s BAZAAR, which I have in my office as I often find inspiration in their pages. I have issues from as far back as the 1950s, when the iconic DianaVreeland was fashion editor. I also love the editions from the 1990s edited by the legendary Liz Tilberis, which is where I stumbled on a rare interview with Kate Moss. Moss was 18 and on the verge of becoming the biggest name in modelling. Asked to describe her look,she responded:“I’m not beautiful, I’m different. ” I loved those words so much I wrote them down and stuck them on my computer, and have found them a great inspiration for this special Beauty Issue. I only have to look around…

ANNA LAVDARAS, 28 “Beauty-wise, I’m moving more and more into skincare and away from makeup. This involves a lot more expensive skin maintenance — lasers, facials, lights — but the industry is bringing the goods, with new treatments dropping monthly.” EUGENIE KELLY, 40s “Genaissence de La Mer Serum — it has truly changed the texture of my skin, but for $800 a bottle you’d want it to!” STEPHANIE HUXLEY, 29 “Barre Body is my new obsession — it’s all about toning!” ALISON IZZO, 32 “I’m obsessed with Barre Attack, which is a horrific 60-minute mix of classical ballet barre work and high-intensity aerobics.” GRACE O’NEILL, 22 “Coconut and rosehip oils. I use them every day instead of moisturiser and in my cooking and teas.” TOM LAZARUS, 38 “The Misfit Ray activity tracker. I can’t stop poring over my sleep hours (or…

JESSICA MATTHEWS Mention the name Natalie Dormer and most people will instantly think of the actor’s portrayal of Margaery Tyrell in HBO’s Game of Thrones, but fashion brand Max Mara predicts the Brit’s flourishing career will far outlast the epicTV series, naming Dormer its 2016 Women in Film Max Mara Face of the Future. BAZAAR’ deputy chief subeditor talked to the actor to find out what’s next (page130). When chatting to Natalie Dormer … “I was quite impressed by her Britishness. She’s very polite and likes to use the word ‘chuffed’. ” My favourite GoT character is … “Tyrion, obviously”. The TV shows I’m loving right now include … “Transparent. And I’ve just started rewatching the 1980s phenomenon that is Carl Sagan’s Cosmos … A dude in beige flares and turtlenecks explains the mysteries…

reader response of the month

FUTURE PERFECT Your article on Sarah Rutson [“Born Retailer”BAZAAR March] reveals how trend forecasters, and women in fashion in general, are nothing short of superheroes. Not only do they have to make sense of such a nonsensical, ever-changing and all-encompassing industry, but they now have to be able to predict the future?! While I faithfully admire her experience and nose for fashion, it makes me wonder if the world is so caught up in the next trend that we can’t truly enjoy the present. Buying an outfit knowing it will become redundant within weeks almost makes me feel overwhelmed. While Sarah Rutson is a fashion goddess walking among mere fashion peasants, I wonder if this constant overturn of trends is making the fashion world more and more disposable. But I mustn’t shoot…

cover star daria werbowy

Not for nothing has Daria remained one of the most sought-after models since the Prada A/W 2003 exclusive that launched her career — after all, her versatility is almost unrivalled in the industry. She can do soft, hard, feminine, masculine, and yet transcend all of those definitions. It’s impossible not to be arrested by her face (those eyes) and effortless hair, which women around the world have asked their hairdressers to copy. And if that doesn’t give you modern beauty-icon status, it’s hard to know what would. ON THE COVER Photographed by Nico Bustos. Styled by Miranda Almond. Daria Werbowy wears Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini dress, $2160; her own earrings. Hair by Karim Belghiran at ArtList; makeup by Alex Babsky, makeup ambassador for Lancôme, using Lancôme; manicure by Naomí Gayoso at Kasteel…
