editor’s letter

Victoria Beckham with daughter Harper (page 212);model Selena Forrest talks to Vogue about sexuality (page 151)Yara Shahidi (interviewed on page 268) meeting Oprah WinfreyI’m always especially excited… when a piece lands on my desk that really encapsulates everything we stand for here at Vogue. This month, that honour goes to a young model with enormous charisma called Selena Forrest. I’ve known Selena since she exploded onto the fashion scene three years ago, with her distinctive walk and unusual charm. Earlier this year, I included her in a group of nine new models reshaping the fashion industry for the cover of our May issue.But as the turbulent times we live in continue to prove, a beautiful face and striking sense of cool are only the beginning of the story. When I asked…

mercury rising

If there was one message that defined this season’s runways, it was the idea of dressing in clothes that protect us (no real surprise, considering the state of the world at large). Everything from Hazmat suits to galoshes have now been declared fully fashionable. And, while there’s nothing new about a silver lamé dress, this season’s take on metallics has a determinedly industrial sheen. Off-White sequined skirts come stamped with warning insignia; Margiela’s trainers are given a hi-vis reflective sheen; Calvin Klein’s outerwear appears distinctly utilitarian. This vision of shimmer is less about eveningwear elegance and more to do with everyday defence – think of insulation foil rather than precious metals and you’re well on your way.

sonoya mizuno

Anyone considering a career change would do well to look to Sonoya Mizuno for encouragement. Until the age of 25, she was a ballet dancer, performing with some of the most respected companies in the world, including The Royal Ballet. Now, the Tokyo-born, Britain-raised, New York-dwelling Mizuno is carving a name in Hollywood, having appeared in Ex Machina, Annihilation and as Emma Stone’s roommate in La La Land. “Dance is so closed,” says Mizuno of her decision to hang up her ballet slippers. “I was interested in fashion and films, and the dance world started to feel smaller and smaller.” This autumn, the 30-year-old reunites with Stone in Netflix’s Maniac: a black comedy about a pharmaceutical trial, in which she plays “a complicated, chain-smoking genius”. It’s her biggest role to…
