Marie Claire South Africa October 2016

Marie Claire South Africa is an iconic, trendsetting title for discerning, fashion-conscious women. It's a brand of depth and substance and offers a journalistic angle on issues not covered by other fashion magazines. Marie Claire is for multifaceted women with a shared mind-set: they are curious about the world and empathize with other women, and their interests range from social issues to fashion trends. The brand provides content not found anywhere else in South Africa: dynamic, picture-led reportage, real women’s stories, critical reporting and sophisticated fashion and beauty across age categories. Please note: this digital version of the magazine does not include the covermount items you would find on printed newsstand copies.

what’s in a scent?

I’ve never been asked to judge perfume for an award before, much less perfumes in multiple categories. But then I’ve never been an editor of a women’s fashion magazine before. At first I felt insecure, not qualified for the job, but I was told that it’s not a difficult task at all, and that I should not think too much about it. I should just let my emotions lead the way. It was an interesting instruction, one that I took seriously on our very prestigious Prix du Parfum’s judging day this year. Gathered together at interior designer David Muirhead’s quarters in Parkmore, Johannesburg, eight judges sat at a table in the courtyard (and on a bed!)with bowls of coffee beans as nasal palate cleansers. There was bottle upon bottle of beautiful…

a glazed gaze

My earliest make-up memory is slicking on layers of sticky, cherry-scented lip gloss at school. Fast forward a few years and countless trends later, and I find myself drawn to gloss all over again – but this time, the grown-up version. The new look is polished and considered but it also extends boundaries, making an appearance on the eyelids. I have been poring over images of the season’s runway shows – with washes of sorbet colours across the lids and eyes that appear to be almost glazed in a sugar syrup. Add dimension to bare lids with clear gloss and frame the eyes with demure mascara-coated lashes. For a more subtle approach, dab gloss over your normal eyeshadow. This season’s gloss does not stop at the lips or lids; wear it…

new faces

In 2006, photographer and activist Zanele Muholi started taking black and white portraits of the lesbian and transgender men people she interacted with. Unbeknown to the Johannesburg-based artist, the series, called Faces + Phases, would grow to feature black queer faces from Soweto to Alexandra and even Toronto and London. Serving as an important archive that tells the visual and vocal stories of its participants, Faces + Phases has been instrumental in representing those in the often marginalised LGBTI community. Ten years after she began the project, Zanele revisited some participants while adding new faces and their stories to the ongoing project. Faces + Phases, which has shown at the Brooklyn Museum, Venice Biennale and other venues, will be presented this month in Johannesburg along with interviews with 22 of…

the beach of freedom

Bodies sprawled half-naked on a sunny beach is not uncommon in most seaside cities – but in Iran, it is the ultimate act of rebellion. In the south of the country lies a small, isolated island where young Iranians can enjoy a haven away from the strict and conservative gashte ershad, the ‘guidance patrol’ and so-called morality police. Even though the spot has been an open secret for generations, police tend to steer clear of it, using the excuse that they aren’t able to cover every nook of Iran’s vast and often far-flung regions. Here, girls can swap their hijabs for bikinis, and they can spend their time drinking wine and making music with traditional Persian instruments. The beach idyll only lasts for a few weeks during winter, as it’s…
