As someone who doesn’t real ly believe in looking back very much or ver y often, I’m going to break wi th the habit of a lifetime and start this April’s letter by talking about the recent past—specifically, our March 2017 issue, which celebrated the female designers who have helped define our vision of fashion, and the new generation of models who are as feisty as they are gorgeous, bringing, thankfully, a more pluralistic idea of beauty to the runway. That issue was the starting point for our 125th anniversary, which we have decided to commemorate by celebrating throughout this year 125 women from all walks of life who share one singular quality: Each of them makes the world an in_nitely better and more fascinating place. The women we bring you…

My one-year-old nephew, Teddy, started to cry as soon as his father handed him over to me. I didn’t know how to hold a baby. Scrunching up his face, now bright red, he squirmed de!antly in my arms. “Please, little man,” I whispered, rocking Teddy from side to side, shaking a rattle inches from his nose. “Just let Daddy take his shower.” I sang “B-I-N-G-O,” stuck out my tongue, played peekaboo— all the things I’d seen Teddy’s father do to make him laugh. The crying came harder. I held out my phone—something Teddy always wanted to play with, but we never let him do—and watched him smear his tiny !ngers across the glowing screen, mesmerized and, miraculously, quiet. It didn’t last long. My brother-in-law Craig returned downstairs in his suit, Teddy started…

Who is your hero, and why?” I often _nd myself thinking about that question, which was first posed to me in a sixth-grade English class. Back then, I had a stacked roster to choose from: Superman, Batman, Spider-Man; any nerdy kid who’d been bitten by a radioactive bug received my unvarnished admiration. This was before Christopher Nolan and Joss Whedon turned superheroes into billion-dollar tent-pole franchises, before Alessandro Michele made geeks chic, before a generation of tech bros followed Mark Zuckerberg to Silicon Valley, back when eyeglasses were still just one notch more fashionable than hearing aids. The contemporaneous photos still sleeved in Ritz Camera envelopes in my parents’ suburban Maryland basement depict an eleven-year-old walking prayer for early-onset puberty. It pains me to admit this in the pages of Vogue,…

Mommy-and-me style—once as sublimely simple as color-coordinating with your toddler—has recently come of age. With Beyoncé and Blue Ivy twinning in Gucci on Instagram, and Dolce & Gabbana’s recent runway shows a kind of ne plus ultra of mother/daughter couture spectacle, children’s clothing has become fashion’s latest obsession. But while Europe is a virtual playground for !nding sustainable and stylish luxury clothes for toddlers and kids, the American market has been slow to adapt to changing times. Luisana Mendoza Roccia and Sylvana Durrett, co founders of the new children’s shopping site Maisonette, are out to change that. Friends and former co-workers at Vogue, Durrett and Mendoza Roccia started their business after becoming frustrated when trying to buy clothes for their kids online, only to !nd their options limited to mass retailers…

When Arianna Gil was fourteen years old, she visited New Orleans as a student volunteer after Hurricane Katrina had devastated the city— and was shocked by what she saw. “I learned what it means to live in a world where the government doesn’t care about black lives,” says Gil, a native New Yorker. “And I realized that I had been given tools to think about grassroots organizing and empowerment. That’s part of my MO, now and forever.” Years later, on a break from her studies at Oberlin Conservatory of Music, she and a friend would form the skate group Brujas as an inclusive, safe space for women (and particularly women of color) at their Bronx skate park. (“In Spanish culture, brujas refers to women who are spiritual and have mystic powers,”…

As of now, the only stones I’ll be sporting across my knuckles will be literal ones: CVC Stones, to be exact. It’s been two years since financier–cum–fine jewelry designer Charlie de Viel Castel first crafted his simple, oh-socool pebble-like pendant necklaces riddled with gemstones and suspended from goldlink chains, mesmerizing both celebrities and fashion editors. Now he’s applying that same instinct for clean, elemental chic to rings. The result? Globally sourced stones set with single diamonds that seemingly float on your fingers. “I wanted to create something new for the inspiring women in my life,” says Viel Castel in his design studio, a converted conference room at Stelac, the private equity firm where he serves as managing partner. “I knew I got something right when the guys gathered at the…
