editor’s letter

Hands up if you are happy to see the end of winter. As much as I love rugging up in cashmere and wearing out the red soles of my Christian Louboutin boots, I am definitely a warm-weather soul. Bring on the heat, I say, which is why I love editing our annual BODY ISSUE, as it signifies the start of spring at BAZAAR HQ. One of my favourite models right now is Australian beauty Jessica Hart. She epitomises health and happiness, and was glowing at our cover shoot in Sydney. She was cheeky, too, conspiring with BAZAAR fashion director Thelma McQuillan and photographer Steven Chee to take some racy faux cover shots to play a practical joke on me. They won, as I was on the phone pretty quickly (still…

CLARE MACLEAN The fashion features director is perhaps the least qualified person in the BAZAAR office to conduct an interview with a health and fitness focus, and so it was with some trepidation that she put her hand up to chat to Jessica Hart for the annual Body Issue (see “All Hart” on page 118). Needless to say, things didn’t go quite according to plan. Jessica Hart … “doesn’t take shit from anyone. I like this about her. ” This spring I’m looking forward to … “the Florence + The Machine concert on the Opera House Forecourt. I usually avoid music concerts like the plague, but I think this one is going to be pretty spesh. ” My number-one travel tip is … “don’t drink wine on planes. Except I literally always do. Also,…

letter of the month

IN THE DIARY Wow, if we think we have busy lives, we can’t come close to the daily routine of women such as Julie de Libran [“24 hours with ...”, BAZAAR September]. How inspiring. In addition, we had another “24 hours” feature with Rosie Huntington-Whiteley. Such fabulous women and such amazing lives. JENNIFER, SOUTH AUSTRALIA GRIEF SHARED I was caught unawares and full of emotion after reading your article “Good Grief?”. Well done for turning to a topic that will touch every one of us. There is no easy way to talk about grief. In fact, there seems to be no real starting point — when does it begin? Four years ago I lost my father, and today fragments of my soul have returned, however, grief is something we will live with forever.…

“My personal style evolves all the time,” says Hart. “I think the same goes for anyone, because it’s really something that is so indicative of you and your lifestyle, and it’s a great way to express yourself and figure out who you are.” While the model loves dressing up and wearing the likes of Valentino, Alaïa, Ferragamo and Charlotte Olympia on the red carpet, she says that when she shops, it’s usually for an off-duty look. “When I’m buying stuff, I prefer high-street brands, but I still like to push the boundaries.” Her mantra? “Have fun — play with it!” ON THE COVER Photographed by Steven Chee. Styled by Thelma McQuillan. Jessica Hart wears Gucci dress, $5640. Price approximate. See Buylines for details and stockists. Hair by Michele McQuillan at M.A.P;…

wish list

When it comes to fashion, never say never. I like feeling comfortable in my own skin, but also trying new things. I constantly find myself drawn to a GREAT SHIRTDRESS [1]. I love all colours at different times. Right now, I’m pretty set on WHITE [2], and I’m having chocolate brown cravings! I like MELROSO [3, 14] for their chic, easy little pieces. I can’t wait to wear the crap out of this TOP [4] from our resort 2016 collection. The perfect pants are our new TILT-A-WHIRL STYLE [5], but I often wear our Tulip trousers, too. These PLATFORMS [6] and SNEAKERS [9] are my must-have shoes. BULGARI [7] does the best fragrance. DR. HAUSCHKA’S DAY CREAM [8] is truly life-changing. I adore ROXANNE ASSOULIN JEWELS [10, 16] and can’t…
