editor’s letter

With what’s going on in the world especially with regards to women’s rights driven by the #metoo and Time’s Up movements, I’m especially proud of our March power issue. We’re not about bra burning nor men bashing. Instead, we share Michelle Obama’s philosophy: “There is no limit to what we, as women, can accomplish”, and our four covergirls (a first for us!), Elizabeth Banks, Eva Longoria, Kerry Washington and Reese Witherspoon, are proof. Read how they are effecting change in Hollywood, page 18. To help you accomplish more with the limited time you have, we’ve got inspiring reads and a 10-page Career Handbook, from page 75. It’s packed with strategies from human resource experts and successful women to fuel your engine in the workplace, be it writing a more effective CV…

when gongs go wrong

Well, Chrissy Teigen couldn’t, and indulged in a little nap during the ceremony. JAMES & ANNE’S GENDER BENDER While they seemed like good hosts in theory, James Franco and Anne Hathaway bombed at the 2011 Oscars as a duo. With absolutely no chemistry, even their outfit-swapping sketch fell spectacularly flat. JLAW TAKES A TUMBLE The blonde bombshell won the golden statue for Best Actress at the 2013 Oscars but unfortunately for her, all anyone can remember is her tripping on her way to the stage to receive her gong. AULI’I’S SMACKDOWN Moana star Auli’i Cravalho was singing the film’s song ‘How Far I’ll Go’ when she was whacked in the head by…

trophy gowns

Givenchy Known for: With an emphasis on texture, the Parisian brand never shies away from unconventional glamour. The muse: Established actresses who aren’t afraid to take a fashion risk. Christian Dior Known for: Structured gowns that reflect the brand’s penchant for a nipped-in waist. The muse: Often seen on women who embody Dior’s ideal of elegance and grace. Valentino Known for: Feminine, timeless gowns that flatter the figure. The muse: Stars who love the brand of high glamour Valentino is known for. HONOURABLE MENTION While Prada may show up less often during awards season, the Italian fashion brand has a knack for choosing who they dress selectively, as evidenced by the fact that they dressed Oscar-winners for two consecutive years.

Atika Lim Digital Writer What instantly makes you feel confident? “ Watching re-runs of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Having #flawless makeup on. Listening to Beyoncé.” If you could have a secret superpower, what would it be? “I honestly wish that I could communicate with animals, like Anya Eisenhardt in the X-Men comics!” Tara Barker Group Editor What instantly makes you feel confident? “If I have something hard to do at work, I try to do it first thing in the morning. Then I can get on with fun things, and it doesn’t hang over me all day. It makes me feel a little bit braver. Every journey starts with a single step, and the first one is often the hardest.” If you could have a secret superpower, what would it be? “I want to be ‘Elastowoman’ or ‘BendyBabe’. That means…

the new wonder women

There’s been a major cultural shift in Hollywood. The Time’s Up and #MeToo feminist movements have brought out of the shadows the widespread prevalance of sexual assault and harrassment, following the sexual misconduct allegations against Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein last October. In the few months since, a new force, generated by women who have found the courage and liberty to speak their mind, has emphatically arrived. It’s a voice that’s further amplified by women-led projects and stories coming out of Hollywood. With the recent success of female-driven shows and films directed by and starring women, including Patty Jenkins’s Wonder Woman, Sofia Coppola’s The Beguiled and Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird, women in showbiz are increasingly commanding the attention and respect they deserve. Our four cover stars are industry stalwarts at the crux…
