1 Kimberly DREW “Upon a Star,” p. 46 “My favorite part of this process was when Lupita told me about her desire to guide her own narrative,” says Drew, the New York–based curator, writer, and activist who profiled Lupita Nyong’o for this month’s cover story. “I was impressed by how caring she is. She’s a strong-willed and wise person.” 2 Aatish TASEER “A Rake’s Progress,” p. 84 In his profile of Imran Khan, Pakistan’s prime minister, Taseer found a cautionary, if familiar, tale. “What fascinated me most was his inability to resolve the push and pull of East and West,” says Taseer, author of The Twice-Born. “I have dealt with that too. But to me, he is a symbol of how wrong the meeting of cultures can go.” 3 Julian LUCAS “Dread’s Rebellion,” p. 92 Lucas, a writer…

@vanityfairlondon Launch Fringe Benefit If the logo on this fabulously fringed canteen bag from Michael Kors Collection looks a little retro, it’s with good reason. The monogram is a reworking of one he had been playing around with in his youth, rediscovered in an old sketch book. A fitting addition to the 1970s vibe seen in Kors’ Fall 2019 collection. michaelkors.co.uk Fashion Fall Change From a self-taught Korean blogger-turned-designer (Le 17 Septembre) to a rule-bending Barcelona-based handbag brand (The Sant), the new wave of Net-a-Porter’s Vanguard designers has landed.

It’s been just six years since Lupita Nyong’o appeared in Steve McQueen’s 12 Years a Slave, and five and a half years since she won an Academy Award for her performance—her first role in a feature film. Since then, she has established herself as a lodestar in the firmament of contemporary cinema. She’s worked with Ryan Coogler in Black Panther, Jordan Peele in Us, and J.J. Abrams in the final Star Wars trilogy, the last installment of which comes out in December. This fall, Lupita makes another debut, this time as an author. She has written a children’s book, Sulwe, about a child “born the color of midnight.” The book is close to her heart, she tells Kimberly Drew in our cover story; she was moved to write it after…

“It was creating performance art out of one’s own aspirations.”—John Green, Washington, D.C. Connecticut Convict Your two August stories about the travails of hedge funder Chip Skowron and Purdue Pharma’s David Sackler were similar in that both were rewarded with big paydays for doing wrong [“Look Homeward, Hedgie,” by Chris Pomorski; “Bitter Pill,” by Bethany McLean]. Skowron, who served time for securities fraud, and Sackler, whose family rode a tidal wave of OxyContin profits to the Forbes World’s Richest List, both plead their cases in your pages—and both fail. Skowron, who now feels most comfortable in prison, albeit one that he leaves each night after visiting his former cellmates, might be the same old “Hedgie” if his neighbors in Greenwich had not cast him out socially. And Sackler, who is upset that…

Harris Dickinson speaks with V.F.’s Britt Hennemuth. Your first film was Beach Rats, a coming-out drama that was a breakout success at the Sundance Film Festival in 2017. How were you discovered? I spent a lot of time in my mom’s bedroom making self-tape auditions because the light was good. I was working in a hotel in London when I got the script, and I Skyped [filmmaker] Eliza Hittman from my childhood home. I have her to thank for my launch because you can’t ask for more than what she gave on that film. She gets a text from me now and again with a little smiley face and an update. What are your memories from your first trip to Sundance, that all-American film festival? The three other, completely uninhibited actors in Beach Rats…
