SHIRT, PANTS, BRIEFS, MULES, ALL, MIU MIU. EARRINGS, MATEO.FOLLOWElla Hunt is staring at the grand confection placed before her, a swirling mountain of toasted marshmallow and chocolate soft serve. “This is so peculiar,” she says in a state of amused bewilderment. It’s a sticky late-summer afternoon in Brooklyn, so ice cream is appropriate, but the 20-year-old British actress had ordered s’mores. No worries. “It sums me up,” she says. “I love desserts, and this has some flair to it.” She digs in.This month, Hunt stars in the musical Anna and the Apocalypse (out November 30), a genre blitz of Christmas merriment and campy horror that finds Hunt fashioning bayonets out of candy-cane lawn decorations when a global zombie outbreak upends her character’s senior year. “Ella was out in the rain,…

power with purpose

(Miller Mobley)I met Michelle Obama briefly last September at Hearst Tower in New York, where ELLE is headquartered and where she spoke to Oprah for this issue (page 187). A week later, on the train to DC to see her again for her cover shoot, I thought about how much more I wanted to say. I wasn’t sure if she’d be interested or even have time. Upon my arrival, I immediately felt at ease. I’ve been to many photo shoots before. And while this one had all the trappings for a former First Lady—security was tight!—there was an openness and generosity on set unlike anything I’ve experienced in the past. Mrs. Obama had set the tone. She didn’t just have time for me (the editor of the magazine), she had…

1. H&MNow in its eighth iteration, the H&M Conscious Exclusive collection is constantly expanding the boundaries of the Swedish giant’s sustainable efforts. Receive 15 percent off the recycled cashmere or choice boho dresses (like the one at left) from the fall collection, or 10 percent at sister brand &Other Stories, in-store, by donating a grocery-size bag of unwanted clothing from any manufacturer. The retailer is zeroing in on its 2018 goal to divert 3 million pounds of textiles from the trash. As of September, H&M was just 500,000 pounds short of that number.2. EILEEN FISHERFor over 30 years, Eileen Fisher has been committed to honing her sustainable business practices, whether that means company-funded acupuncture for employees or turning old garments into wall art. For brand devotees, the designer’s Renew program…

BEHIND THE SCENES OF THE COLLECTION WITH DELL’ACQUA AND MODEL EDIE CAMPBELL.LEATHER TRENCH COAT, $7,945, SHIRT, $3,595, PANTS, SLING-BACKS, $845, ALL, TOD’S.Though it was originally worn by race-car drivers, Tod’s Gommino driving moccasin has become a beloved lazy-day staple synonymous with preppy, polished tomboy style. The recent launch of Tod’s Factory is revving up the classic—and the house itself. The series, which takes its name from Andy Warhol’s Factory collective, will see not just designers but photographers, filmmakers, and other visual artists applying their distinct vision to the Italian label. Up first: Alessandro Dell’Acqua. In September, the Rochas and N°21 designer debuted a pointy, ladylike hybrid of the Gommino and a penny loafer, along with eight other shoe styles and seven ready-to-wear pieces, in Paris. “In revisiting the moccasin, I…
