embrace the new season

One of my favourite times of the year is the spring/summer and autumn/winter fashion shows. Over the past 25 years I have watched them from various places throughout my life. As a fashion-mad teenager growing up in the 199Os I would read about them in glossy magazines, recreating Marc Jacobs’ ‘grunge’ aesthetic with canny charity-shop finds. As a young editor starting out in the mid-2OOOs, I spied them from the back row, balanced on tiptoes, neck craned; the clear glimpse of a sleeve enough to make me giddy with excitement – and every outfit meticulously recreated with a high-street approximation of the real thing. Now I am lucky enough to watch them from the glamour of the front row, where every dress or coat is within arm’s reach; every model…

guest list

The writer KRISTI COULTER Seattle-based Kristi – whose newfound sobriety led to her debut collection of essays Nothing Good Can Come From This – writes about the first year of opening up her marriage on page 72. What’s your most unusual writing habit? ‘I edit my first draft by typing the entire manuscript from scratch again. It unlocks new ideas.’ What advice would you give your younger self? ‘Stop drinking now. You don’t need alcohol to lead a fun, adventurous life.’ The make-up artist WENDY ROWE Wendy has been an international make-up artist for 2O years and counts Sienna Miller and Victoria Beckham as regulars.

evolution of beauty

My mother was at her most beautiful when she came back from the salon every fortnight – her long hair falling in big sweeping curls around her shoulders. I thought she must be the prettiest woman in the world. She was tall and black as night with long curly hair. To my seven-year-old self, she was like a black Charlie’s Angel. I’d stare at her for hours, imagining what it must be like to have hair that turned heads. Powerful hair. I had much coarser hair, that fell about my ears with a kinky curl. My mum’s beauty was simple and pure. She would wear lip gloss and maybe mascara on special occasions but she never needed much. How I looked was important to her, especially if we were going to…

introducing... sonoya mizuno

Sonoya Mizuno has been, how can I put this... ‘shat’ upon. Some leaky sparrow shit, to be precise, which sits centre stage on her navy trousers. It’s a warm late-September morning, and we’re seated outside a café in New York City’s East Village. As the 33-year-old actor quietly excuses herself to clean up in the bathroom with a good-natured shrug, the feathered culprit dances around us. ‘It’s supposed to be good luck, right?’ she asks. Many will remember Mizuno as the bride in Crazy Rich Asians, which grossed £178.4 million worldwide at the box office, making it the highest-grossing romantic comedy of the past 1O years. Or perhaps you’ll recall her as the dancing best friend in the opening sequence of Damien Chazelle’s La La Land? Or the awkward, chain-smoking…
