READ Six months ago, Cartier launched the Coloratura high jewelry collection. Its vibrant stones, sourced from all over the globe, nod to the exhilarating beauty of a world united. The new Coloratura: High Jewelry and Precious Objects by Cartier (Rizzoli) furthers the conversation by drawing parallels between the haute joaillerie and greater trends in the art world. ( VISIT Thirty years after Robert Mapplethorpe’s death at 42, New York’s Guggenheim museum hosts a two-part, yearlong exhibition dedicated to the photographer’s too-short career. Implicit Tensions: Mapplethorpe Now opens January 25, showcasing everything from his Polaroids, nudes, flowers, and celebrity portraits to his S&M-focused work. The second portion, opening next summer, considers his outsize influence on contemporary photography. ( SEE There’s an archeologist’s sensibility to Mexican-born, Berlin-based artist Mariana Castillo Deball’s work. Through extensive research, she explores…

love, actually

For being the shortest month of the calendar year, February demands a lot. It asks that we express the entirety of our love for someone on a single day. (To be clear, the ELLE team appreciates flowers, chocolates, or jewelry whether it’s Valentine’s Day or any day of the week.) But expressions of love extend far beyond material gifts and a mere 24 hours. In the following pages, we explore love’s various iterations. There’s romance, which for our cover star, Ashley Graham, is as much about spirituality as it is intimacy (page 116). There’s self-love, a subject writer Sloane Crosley humorously reckons with in her essay about our desire to look forever young (page 92). There is love of nature’s unparalleled beauty, as captured in Inez & Vinoodh’s sweeping ode…

1 THE BAG If by some chance you haven’t heard, there’s a new artistic director and new punctuation (the e lost its accent) at Celine. Hedi Slimane, much like his cartoon-inspired riff on the house’s classic C bag, has arrived with a bang. Calfskin handbag, Celine by Hedi Slimane, $3,300, 2 THE BRACELET In search of a new bauble that’s simply out of this world? The Les Galaxies de Cartier bracelet, with its gravity-defying moonstone fragments reminiscent of meteorites, more than fits the bill. Rose gold, diamond, moonstone, and quartz bracelet, Cartier, available by appointment only, at select Cartier boutiques nationwide. 3 THE SHOE “Today, everyone is talking about escapism,” Pierpaolo Piccioli told the press after his spring show for Valentino. What better way to take flight than with a plumed sandal in the…

ask me who i’m wearing

It’s the day after my appearance in Lagos, Nigeria, at the Aké Arts & Book Festival. I scroll through my Instagram feed, still too tired to do anything other than relive the moment online. “Love the dress!” says one response. “You look gorgeous!” says another. “Simply stunning!” Though the event was well attended and my books sold out, it was my dress—by Zimbabwean American label Shangani Fashion—that stole the spotlight. A few years ago, the hashtag #AskHerMore went viral, as influential feminists raged against red-carpet reporters asking actresses who they were wearing—arguing that women’s achievements were being overshadowed by superfluous fashion choices. I understand their reasoning, but in my world, fashion has deep meaning. Although I’m not a celebrity, I am a writer who has been fortunate enough to have a…

cult of personality

1. HAILEY BALDWIN Although she’s changed her name to Hailey Bieber on her Instagram, the newlywed model is keeping another man close to her heart—sartorially speaking. Mrs. Bieber fronts interior decorator Anthony Baratta’s new 12-piece Nantucket collection for Weekend Max Mara. Marked by preppy, home-inspired touches—rickrack trim, gingham, and toile—the looks are equally apropos for weekends off the coast of Cape Cod or wandering the streets of Manhattan. 2. EVAN RACHEL WOOD To celebrate the tenth anniversary of his label, Joseph Altuzarra is reissuing some of his greatest hits, like the sweet-meets-sexy gingham dress that dominated spring 2015 and a sleek lace-inset suit from resort 2014, shown at bottom right on Evan Rachel Wood. Because birthdays are better spent with friends, Wood joins a posse of Altuzarra’s pals, including Jenna Lyons and Pose…

1. ARCANA NEW YORK Storytelling is at the heart of this Brooklyn-based label. According to founder and Parsons grad Arianna Reagan, every fabric has a backstory, whether it be an antique kimono silk that didn’t quite pass muster with a Japanese vendor or endek weavings from Bali, where the designer spent a month working with a family-owned collective that trains women in this increasingly rare craft. For spring, Reagan utilized silk from vacated silk moth cocoons to deliver sharp women’s separates that are not only environmentally sound but cruelty free. ( 2. GREG LAUREN X ALANUI Greg Lauren shares a love of Americana motifs with his uncle Ralph. But the Los Angeles–based designer takes a more left-of-center approach to his own denim-heavy collections: Think dusters Frankensteined together from navy peacoats and denim overalls.…
