what we love about february

1. SHE LOVES ME, SHE LOVES ME NOT … Having a portrait painted of your beloved sounds romantic, no? Think again. It doesn’t work out that well for Tulip Fever’s Christoph Waltz and Alicia Vikander (above). (Spoiler: The artist, played by Dane DeHaan, is young, hot—you know where this is heading.) Tulip Fever opens in theaters this month. 2. SEEING SPOTS Go down the rabbit hole and get lost inside Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama’s world at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden in Washington, D.C. Beginning February 23, “Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirrors” will showcase six of Kusama’s mirror rooms alongside installations, sculptures, and paintings. 3. BOTTOMS UP Red or white? Sweet or dry? Light or full-bodied? If your answer is “all of the above,” then this one is for you: National Drink Wine Day is…

Our February issue is in many ways a celebration of new beginnings: our first peek at the spring collections—a season of risk-taking new designers, ultrafemininity, and artisan-influenced details (p. 136); the winners of our secondannual Image Makers Awards—the talented group of hairstylists, makeup artists, and detail makers who make Hollywood glamour seem effortless (p. 64); the fearless designs of Project Runway season 15 winner Erin Robertson, whose first collection strutted boldly down the runway at New York Fashion Week (p. 60); and the heartbreaking but uplifting true story of Doaa Al Zamel, a young woman who fled the civil war in Syria with her fiancé in 2014, at age 19, and survived seven days in the open ocean with only a floating ring to cling to, saving not only her…

Snaps Chat My favorite part of the magazine has become seeing the photo spreads by photographer Arnaud Pyvka. Just as Marie Claire stands out from the fray of fashion magazines for its take on the world and its insistence on making us think, so, too, do these very different photographs. They’re always arresting and thoughtprovoking, and I find myself holding on to an issue so I can return for this unique perspective again and again. —Rachel Solomon, Brookline, MA In the Shadows I absolutely loved the piece “The Lady Detectives of Delhi” by Abigail Haworth [November 2016]. Alexandre Dumas wrote in The Count of Monte Cristo, “Neglect is our ally.” These ladies embody this premise by taking India’s largely misogynistic societal views and benefiting from them. Their invisibility in society is what makes them…

PHOTOGRAPHER Txema YESTE The Barcelona-based Yeste came to NYC to shoot actress Claire Danes (“Great Heights,” p. 128) with visions of an independent, film noir goddess—inspired by “characters from John Cassavetes’ movies,” he says—“a strong woman with an air of mystery.” LAST SPLURGE: “I’m working on a little house, close to the sea. It’s my personal project.” COLLECTS: Stones, pieces of wood, crystals, and elements from the beach. “I’m in love with the shapes of them!” WRITER Melissa FLEMING @melissarfleming The author, who travels between Vienna and Geneva as head of communications for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees, hopes her new book, A Hope More Powerful Than the Sea (excerpted in “I Survived a Week at Sea,” p. 154), enlightens readers about the Syrian refugee crisis: “No refugee would board those boats if they could…

AGE: 37. OCCUPATION: Actress. HOMETOWN AND CURRENT RESIDENCE: New York City. CITY SLICKER: Danes arrived in a navy jumpsuit, a Prada trench coat, and black suede mules, with a Maison Margiela leather bag. PLAY DATE: Her husband, Hugh Dancy, and their 4-year-old son, Cyrus, stopped by the set before heading off to a birthday party. TOSS UP: Danes cozied up in a robe between shots and ate veggies for lunch. “I’m a salad girl. I like … making them, eating them, and sharing them,” she said. ON THE SAME PAGE: The actress chatted about the last book she read, Elena Ferrante’s The Story of the Lost Child, and her unconventional book club, The Lit Wits, where she and her friends discuss the book each person is reading, instead of everybody…
