spring awakening

1. SMELL-A-VISION The brand behind Instagram’s favorite candles has just launched five fragrances under the Cologne de Parfum moniker. “They have a tension and balance between scents thought to be masculine and feminine,” says Boy Smells cofounder Matthew Herman. The unexpected combinations, like white flowers and saffron in Flor de la Virgen, create universally appealing olfactive symphonies, with grid-worthy bottles to boot. Boy Smells Cologne de Parfum, $98 each, boysmells.com. 2. RED RISING It takes nearly 1,000 crushed female cochineal insects to create the bright red hue in a typical tube of lipstick. But after three years and 19 trial formulas, Hourglass Cosmetics has achieved Red 0, a vibrant true-red hue with a lab-created pigment that is long-lasting and 100 percent vegan. Hourglass Cosmetics Confession Lipstick Red O, $40, hourglasscosmetics.com. 3. BAGGAGE CLAIM Seeking a…

making waves

IT WAS THE MIRROR SEEN ROUND THE WORLD, via Instagram at least—because every #OOTD needs the perfect frame. The wavy-edged reflector that was spotted in influencer Linn Eklund’s Stockholm apartment is the work of designer Gustaf Westman, who specializes in candy-colored, undulating home goods. The ripple effect extended all the way to fine jewelry, in the case of Bea Bongiasca’s cheerful enamel creations. Prefer a less permanent fixture? Celebrity hairstylist Sam McKnight looked to the fashion illustrations of Tony Viramontes as inspiration for his nouveau marcel waves at Dries Van Noten’s spring 2021 show, which perfectly complemented the patterns of Van Noten’s collection. These almost cartoonish silhouettes add a bit of levity to our heavy times—and as many of us continue to spend so much time indoors, what better way…

speaking her truth

When FKA twigs came forward with her account of intimate partner violence, or IPV, at the hands of her ex-boyfriend Shia LaBeouf, her story instantly struck a chord with me. I have always admired twigs as an artist because of the purity of her convictions, and I was in awe of her bravery and transparency as she spoke about what must have been an unbelievably painful experience. She is a woman of incredible courage, and I immediately knew that what she had to say would resonate with our readers, especially as we honor International Women’s Day on March 8. After all, it is our responsibility as a women’s magazine to let women and young girls know they’re not alone—that this is something that could affect any one of us, as…

river deep, mountain high

Though my family and I were fortunate to find refuge outside New York City during the height of the pandemic, by the time August rolled around, we, like many of you, were all going a bit stir-crazy. I wanted to find a semi-remote destination that offered a wide variety of outdoor activities for my husband and two sons (and amenities for me). After doing plenty of research, I landed on the Resort at Paws Up in Greenough, Montana. It’s located on a 37,000-acre working cattle ranch, so I knew we would have plenty of room to roam. What I didn’t know: The week that would follow would prove to be one of the most magical travel experiences of my life. Deciding it best to simply dive right in upon our arrival,…
