editor’s letter

The Year We Stopped Dressing Up I love fashion and clothes. When I was 7, my grandmother asked me what toy I wanted for my birthday, and I wished for a new striped T-shirt and coordinating navy shorts. From that moment on, I’ve loved the fun and creativity of clothes, being able to evolve through silver tank tops and satin shirts in my college days to tailored suits and beautiful leather shoes in my 30s.

This is the year people stopped dressing up. In the past six months I have bought a sweater, a…

inside zac efron’s new life - and new love!

Zac Efron has left Hollywood in his rearview—for now, at least. This summer the High School Musical alum, 32, relocated to Australia, where he has started putting down roots and even begun a new romance. Per a source, Efron met his new flame, Vanessa Valladares, in June when she was working at the Byron Bay General Store. “They started hanging out in July and recently took a ski trip together,” says the source. “You can tell that they are having fun. She spends a lot of time at his house.” For now Efron “is renting a house minutes from the beach” in Byron Bay, says the source, but “he has been house-hunting.” While work will likely bring him back to Los Angeles (he just signed on to star in Disney’s…
