united we speak

TOWARD THE END OF LAST YEAR, all the editors in chief of Vogue from around the world gathered to discuss joining forces and to consider what we could achieve if we worked en masse. Our first initiative was the setting out of our Vogue Values, a commitment to stand behind crucial principles—respect, inclusivity, transparency, diversity, and sustainability. But, of course, as with everything in life today, words need to be matched by deeds. The coming together of so many editors inspired an idea for this April’s cover story, which celebrates global beauty in all its infinite varieties. The Vogue editors nominated 28 models from around the world who they felt truly represented their country, and the young women we celebrate here do just that—as much by their grace and their strength…

bearing witness

Once the queen’s head is severed, he walks away. A sharp pang of appetite reminds him that it is time for a second breakfast, or perhaps an early dinner. The morning’s circumstances are new, and there are no rules to guide us. The witnesses, who have knelt for the passing of the soul, stand up and put on their hats. Under the hats, their faces are stunned. But then he turns back, to say a word of thanks to the executioner. The man has performed his office with style; and though the king is paying him well, it is important to reward good service with encouragement, as well as a purse. Having once been a poor man, he knows this from experience. The small body lies on the scaffold where it has…

TALENT “I think Sally Rooney had a similar feeling to me, which was like, ‘I can’t believe this is happening,’” says Daisy Edgar-Jones. At a smart café in North London, the 21-year-old actor is discussing—and, it seems, still processing—her star billing in the BBC and Hulu adaptation of Rooney’s best-selling novel Normal People. “When we were making it, we didn’t even register that people were actually going to see it,” she says, settling into a sunny window seat. In the nearly two years since its publication, Normal People has generated a fandom with the passion of Potterheads, Trekkies, or Marvelites—only with more New Yorker tote bags. The novel tells the story of a turbulent love affair between the rich, smart Marianne (played in the adaptation by Edgar-Jones) and the equally smart but…

buon idea

SKIN CARE It was while conceptualizing her adorably packaged Bambini Furtuna line of holistic children’s health remedies that Agatha Luczo started thinking about Furtuna Skin. “I also want high-performance products that are good for me,” recalls the noughties Croatian supermodel and mother of four, whose sprawling 865-acre organic farm in Sicily serves as the inspiration for both lines. The property, which once belonged to the grandmother of Luczo’s husband, Stephen, CEO and chairman of the tech firm Seagate, is home to wild-foraged medicinal plants and rare olive trees that supply crucial ingredients for products such as a face and eye serum; the brand’s debut launch, it boasts an antioxidant-packed olive-leaf water base. (“Why use regular water when olive-leaf water has so many extra benefits for your skin?” asks Luczo.) Furtuna’s commitment…

bridging the zap

SKIN CARE At the recently opened Ever/Body in downtown New York City, where Clear + Brilliant laser facials are offered alongsie Botox injections, jade-colored walls provide the backdrop for potted plants and stacks of Assouline books. It’s chic, relaxed, and bears little resemblance a traditional doctor’s office. Just a few years ago, laser treatments like this one—that target uneven texture and pigmentation with 1,440 nanometers of light—were rarely available outside whitewashed clinical spaces; now, similar high-tech devices are becoming household names. If you recognize “Pico Genesis” and “IPL” from regular appearances on Instagram—not to mention subway ads, sidewalk sandwich boards, and dinner conversations—you’re not alone. “We’re leveraging technology in all areas of our lives,” says Kate Twist, a former executive at Clinique and the CEO and cofounder of Ever/Body. “Why should skin care…

TELEVISION In the first episode of Mrs. America (FX on Hulu), Phyllis Schlafly (played by a wickedly composed Cate Blanchett) sits in the guest chair of a daytime–talk show host. She’s there to discuss the Soviet nuclear threat, her specialty, but the male host offers her a condescending little reminder: “Don’t forget to smile.” She gives him a tepid curl of the mouth, and then verbally eviscerates him once the lights go up. Schlafly—a failed congressional candidate and mother of five—proceeds to storm the country, proselytizing for what she sees as “traditional values” and becoming America’s foremost anti-feminist. Despise her or idolize her, she was a force—her ardor often paradoxically at odds with the meek vision of womanhood she espoused. Thankfully, though, there are no paper-cutout villains or heroines in this…
