stars of wonder

For the past decade, Bazaar’s Women of the Year Awards have been a highlight of our annual calendar, celebrated in glamorous style with a black-tie dinner and a glittering ceremony at Claridge’s. Like so many other events, the awards presentation has had to be cancelled this year. Yet we felt that it seemed more imperative than ever to pay homage to those who, in a 2020 that was often so strange, so divisive and so depressing, have managed to bring us together and lift our collective spirits. So, with the generous support of Armani Beauty, we decided to highlight the people who brought us strength, joy or hope, one for every month of this extraordinary year. Among the winners are our cover star Lashana Lynch, whose role as 007 in the much-anticipated (and,…

DAISY EDGAR-JONES Page 144 Earlier this year, the actress enthralled audiences in her breakout performance as Marianne in the television adaptation of Normal People. She has since started filming the second series of the BBC’s War of the Worlds and has landed her first Hollywood role, in the thriller Fresh. In this edition, she reflects on attending the Baftas, lockdown life and her new-found fame. Your woman of the year ‘Michaela Coel. I thought I May Destroy You was an incredible piece of work. I’m in awe of the fact that she wrote it and performed in it so brilliantly.’ A woman from history you would have liked to meet ‘Frida Kahlo – she was an amazing person.’ Your favourite fictional heroine ‘Would it be really terrible to say Marianne? I think she’s such a…

10 things we love

1 THE TEXTURE CLASH Lace collars, satin ruffles, tulle skirts and elaborate jewellery: it’s time to get extra. 2 THE CHECKED JACKET Sharp shoulders, gold buttons and a velvet trim: Sloane Ranger style is strong for A/W 20. Bonus points if you can match your blouse and blazer. 3 THE DEB DRESS Party like it’s 1964 in the season’s embellished evening gowns: old school in the best possible way. Elbow-length gloves optional (but highly recommended). 4 THE TOP-HANDLE BAG Pussy-bow blouses, pearl earrings and neat little handbags: make Margaret Thatcher your muse with a very conservative take on Eighties style. 5 THE SHINING EXAMPLE Metallics for evening? Not exactly groundbreaking – but to keep your look current, consider a lady-like interpretation of the trend in softer shades. 6 THE FEATHERED FLOURISH Because Chanel’s jacket is enough to set any heart aflutter… 7…

handle with flair

‘My aim in life is to relay the joy of living,’ says the American artist Josh Smith of the vibrant accessory he has created with Louis Vuitton. The New Yorker is one of six creative talents, who also include the Brazilian painter Beatriz Milhazes and the Chinese sculptor Liu Wei, to have reinvented the fashion house’s classic Capucines bag with their designs for its capsule Artycapucines collection, now in its second year. Inspired by one of his expressionist canvases, Smith’s striking leather-free creation features his own name in colourful brushstrokes (a playful riff on Vuitton’s signature monograms). ‘With this bag, I can imagine two people meeting … and my name being a conversation starter, like, “What’s that?”’ he explains. Embellished with more than 370,000 intricate stitches and a silk lining printed…

simply divine!

HESTIA No matter how large or small the celebrations this year, the perfect hostess is sure to shine beatifically in VALENTINO’s full-length sequins or RALPH LAUREN’s velvet gown. Complement her sparkling conversation with a diamond-encrusted BUCCELLATI ring or a glistening SOPHIA WEBSTER clutch. A bottle of MOËT & CHANDON, properly chilled, will ensure the twinkle in her eye lasts all night. ZEUS ALEXANDER McQUEEN’s metallic jacket or FAVOURBROOK’s textured corduroy waistcoat will elevate any silver fox to godlike status. Prints are charming – seek out PAUL SMITH’s rainbow-striped socks for a flash of daring colour up in the heavens, while DIOR’s paisley coat will help him cut a dash among mortals as he takes his new SOFLOW scooter for a spin here on Earth. ATHENA This intellectual aesthete will find herself irresistibly drawn to LANVIN’s silky art deco-inspired…
