editor’s letter

ON MAY 25 I REFRESHED MY NEWS FEED frantically to find out the results of an historic election in my home country of Ireland. Then there it was: The electorate had overwhelmingly voted to repeal the Eighth Amendment, decriminalizing abortion there. I screamed with joy and pride. Flash-forward one month. Our team here was working on our September issue, themed This Time It’s Personal, because we had seen so many women step up to protest, to vote or volunteer in special elections, to run for office themselves, all for reasons that are so intensely personal. The mood of the country had clearly shifted—this midterm season isn’t about politics as usual; it’s about how politics affects each of our lives in deeply intimate ways. Then, on June 27, just as we were going…

what to watch, read & listen to, starting now

1&2 A PAIR OF MUSICAL BLOCKBUSTERS It’s a battle of the bands! Two of fall’s most anticipated films are Bohemian Rhapsody (November 2), with Rami Malek as Queen front man Freddie Mercury, and Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga’s rock-country revival of A Star Is Born (October 5). Who will win? It’ll be close, but our money’s on Mr. Malek. 3, 4, 5 A FEW FEEL-GOOD NOVELS Sometimes to get through the toughest moments in your life, you need an unlikely ally. These novels prove just how essential that is. In Vanessa Hua’s touching A River of Stars, two polar opposites break out of a home for unwed mothers. Though they are near strangers, their gumption and optimism help them set up a new life in San Francisco. In The Air You Breathe, Frances…

wild, wild country

WHO’S THAT BOY? If you don’t know Taylor John Smith, your DVR is missing out. Smith, 23, is one of the stars of Sharp Objects, the binge-bait HBO series based on the book by Gillian Flynn. Amy Adams plays a big-city journalist who returns to her hometown to investigate two related murders, and Smith portrays John Keene, the brother of a victim, who becomes one of the suspects. Smith is mum on the rest. “They give you a list of things you can’t say” to prevent spoilers, he says. “And I’m like, ‘What I am I going to talk about?’” Intrigued? Good. Because Smith isn’t cut out for a day job in fashion anytime soon: “I had a photo shoot right before this one, and [the stylist] was asking me about…

your monday-to-friday look, nailed

The Media Exec LILLY WORKNEH, 27 HER DAY: As editor-in-chief of blavity.com, an L.A.-based news site for black millennials, Workneh spends most of her days assigning and editing articles. By night, she meets with potential investors and speaks on industry panels. HER LOOK: “There’s no ‘expected attire’ in media,” Workneh says, so she keeps things pulled together with fitted tops and long skirts or skinny jeans with structured tops. For nighttime events she likes a body-con midi dress with chunky heels. The Doctor MARY L. STEVENSON, M.D., 34 HER DAY: Stevenson, a dermatologic surgeon and cosmetic dermatologist with NYU’s Langone Health in New York City, starts many days in the operating room removing skin cancers. In the afternoon she sees more patients. HER LOOK: Outside of surgery (where it’s strictly scrubs), she sticks with A-line…

batsheva hay is redefining sexy

BATSHEVA HAY KNOWS HER DESIGNS INSPIRE a strong reaction. The prairie-style dresses, some with matching bonnet, might best be described as the stuff of a Laura Ingalls Wilder fever dream. “Some people are like, ‘What is that?’ ” says the 37-year-old. “This one PR guy was totally trying to put me down, like, ‘Your dresses are old, they are like the official wardrobe of the Me Too movement!’ ” Hay laughs: “I was like, ‘Whatever!’ At least he feels strongly about it.” That IDGAF attitude is what her line, Batsheva, is all about. Before starting her label two years ago, Hay was a lawyer on the partner track at a Manhattan law firm. “My whole life I had been shy and studious. If someone criticized something I wrote, I’d be heartbroken,”…
