For 20 years we’ve done our annual Most Beautiful People issue in October. Well, this year has been different than the last 20 in many, many ways. So, we felt it was time for a change. This year, we’re shaking it up. Let me explain… When I was a kid I was obsessed with Barbara Walters’ “Most Fascinating People” special every year. She told stories of people who had done amazing things and who had incredible tales. This is what we want to do this year. There are so many beautiful and fascinating people—and let me be clear most are both, every year. Beauty is both external and internal.

Darden was inspired to start the organization at 27 after a friend was diagnosed with breast cancer.

Brothers Osborne fans know what to expect from their live shows: Loud country music that feels like pure rock and roll. From start to finish, a Brothers Osborne show delivers booming vocals on anthemic songs, face-melting guitar licks, and a rowdy good time. With that in mind, the Brothers—TJ and John Osborne—set out to make their third studio album, Skeletons, a celebration of their live performances. Complete with a track list that plays like a setlist and their entire band in the studio for the recording process. The Jay Joyce produced album, available October 9, was in fact the first time Brothers Osborne included their touring band on a record. But judging by the results it won’t be the last. “We’re a duo, John and I, but we treat our music a…

Anyone who’s ever logged into Instagram (or any social media platform) knows how large and how influential the influencer community has become. Fashion, home décor, cleaning products, delivery services, you name it—brands love to partner with these online elites. But how do brands and influencers find each other? And what happens when an influencer needs support or a shooting location to create content? Enter Of Note and its founders, public relations pros India Mayer and Katy Shah.
