Ann PATCHETT “THE BOOK OF REESE” P. 58 Patchett first encountered Reese Witherspoon on the cover of Nashville magazine. “She was 15 and had just starred in The Man in the Moon,” says the author of The Dutch House. “I felt so proud because she lived in my hometown.” For V.F.’s cover story, the two bibliophiles met at Parnassus Books, the Nashville bookstore co-owned by Patchett. Jesse HYDE “THE GIRL WHO PLAYED WITH FIRE” P. 88 “This is a climate change story. But it’s also a story of greed and consumption,” says the Salt Lake City–based writer, whose report on the Amazon rain forest was supported by a grant from the Pulitzer Center. “It made me question what we’re losing in the unrelenting march of what we consider industrial and technological progress.” Lisa ABEND “PUBLISH OR PERISH” P.…

@vanityfairlondon JEWELLERY Legend Has It Heritage Indian house Amrapali is finally bringing its Legend collection to these shores, showcasing traditionally cut “Polki” diamonds in 18ct yellow gold, bright pops of enamel and traditional motifs like crescent moons and lotus flowers. Handcrafted in Jaipur by master artisans, the Legend collection will be available at Amrapali and Harrods. legendamrapali.com TRAVEL Hold the Fortress Villa rental companies abound, but The Thinking Traveller has a genuine point of difference in that their “local knowledge” borders on obsessive—think fascinating historical information and deep-dives into local flora and fauna. New to the collection is Forte San Giorgio on the island of Capraia on the Tuscan archipelago, an exquisitely restored 16th-century fortress with 11 bedrooms, two pools and unbelievable views. thethinkingtraveller.com FRAGRANCE Scents of Occasion There will only ever be one Graff Lesedi La Rona, the…

editor’s letter

Reese Witherspoon has been a hero of my personal canon ever since Election, and I watch and rewatch her work compulsively. If Walk the Line or Legally Blonde is on any screen nearby, I will absolutely park myself in front of it; sorry if you need anything from me for the next two hours. She could have had a tidy, superlative, Tracy Flick career picking up Oscars and such, but instead she expanded into acquiring and producing, and she is responsible for a real shift in the stories we see onscreen and the roles they create for women, from Wild to Big Little Lies to her new Hulu series Little Fires Everywhere, costarring Kerry Washington and based on the best-selling novel by Celeste Ng. Reese and I are kindred spirits in our…

“Sustainable doesn’t need to be vanilla,” says Chilean-born Maria Cornejo, a founding member of the CFDA Sustainability Committee and frequent award recipient for her innovation in responsible fashion. “It can be luxurious. It can be sexy.” Her long-standing NoHo atelier, Zero + Maria Cornejo—of which Christy Turlington and Michelle Obama are fans—is proof positive of her belief. And by using upcycled fabrics (car seat leather; recycled cashmere) and local manufacturing, Cornejo demonstrates that it can be refreshingly pragmatic too: “If a yarn is Bolivian,” she says, “then we knit it in Bolivia. If the leather is from Italy, then we make the shoe in Italy.”…
