editor’s letter

EVERYONE HAS BEEN INFLUENCED BY TV characters at some point—those small-screen personalities that make an impact on us and help us realize the version of ourselves we want to be. For me, those characters were saxophone- and book-loving Lisa Simpson and Saved by the Bell’s Jessie Spano. As a preteen I’d sprint home from school to beat my sister to the highly coveted seat in front of the TV before Saved by the Bell’s familiar, chirpy theme song started. From the very first episode, Jessie proved herself as a smart, staunch feminist who called out unfair societal norms and was quick to confront her ridiculous (and often chauvinistic) boyfriend, AC Slater. She leaned into her intelligence in a way that made her stand out from other female protagonists on the…

living legends

Starting September 17, glamour.com is celebrating the trailblazing women, including EGOT winners Whoopi Goldberg and Rita Moreno, who have made us laugh, cry, sing along, and everything in between for decades. Ahead, a sneak peek at our conversation with actress and activist Jane Fonda. YOU’VE GONE THROUGH VARIOUS AWAKENINGS. WAS THERE ONE THAT WAS THE MOST LIFE-ALTERING? I was pregnant in France, looking at the television as tens of thousands of my fellow countrymen marched on the Pentagon [to protest the Vietnam War]. That is when I thought, I can’t stay here. I’ve got to go back [to the United States]. YOU’RE STILL JUST AS PASSIONATE ABOUT ACTIVISM AS YOU WERE IN YOUR TWENTIES. HOW DO YOU INSPIRE WOMEN TO STAY DRIVEN? You just have to do it so people see you…

where has your glamour been?

“To Ghana! I returned to West Africa for the seventh time with an organization dear to my heart, the Touch a Life Foundation. It provides long-term holistic care for children rescued from slavery. The girls were obsessed with the magazine from cover to cover, oohing and aahing at the images of models wearing brightly colored eyeshadow; they proclaimed that in addition to being lawyers and doctors, they also wanted to be makeup artists!” FONDA: DANIELE VENTURELLI/GETTY IMAGES.

cool-shaped bag + just-right jacket

Diamonds, Emeralds, Rubies + You You know Rent the Runway. Now a new start-up called Flont is following the same model, offering luxe jewelry rentals at a fraction of the cost of buying. For as little as $59, members can borrow a $1,950 emerald and diamond bangle by Selin Kent or a $2,200 rose gold necklace with sapphires by Meredith Kahn. “We’re giving people access to jewelry they might not have ever experienced or thought they could,” says Brooke Magnaghi, the brand’s creative director. Orders come with a prepaid return envelope, and all of the pieces are insured, meaning minor scratches and dings are covered by the company (a lost item, however, could set you back for 25 percent of the cost). “For a lot of people, fine jewelry can be…

ankle boots + cropped pants

NYC Fashion Vets + Rwandan Artisans When Courtney Weinblatt Fasciano met Erin Ryder in the summer of 2017, they bonded over their experiences in fashion (Weinblatt Fasciano as an editor, Ryder as a brand director) and their belief that the business desperately needed to change. Both were disillusioned by the environmental pollution and unsavory human rights practices they’d learned about in their industry. Their solution: Cesta Collective, a line of woven bags ($375–$425, cestacollective.com) that are made in partnership with a fair-trade-certified collective in Rwanda. Each piece is hand-woven with biodegradable sisal by local female artisans. The bags are then sent to a family-owned atelier in New York for handmade leather finishes. The women hope their business will inspire other designers to use sustainable materials and employ local artisans. It’s part of…
