editor’s letter

I’ve been fantastically fortunate in my life and career to be surrounded and supported by some pretty spectacular women. From my feminist mum, who’d regularly cut out press clippings on female game-changers in the hope I’d be inspired to follow in their giant footsteps, to a legion of girl bosses who’ve mentored and promoted me throughout the decades. When I didn’t have the guts to step up, they became my fiercest champions and I’m indebted to them daily for their encouragement and guidance. Thankfully, I’m not alone. I constantly hear similar stories, which is why we decided to kickstart this month’s special issue – our annual International Women’s Day edition – by celebrating fearless female friendships. In our reportage “The Women Who Made Me” (page 44), ex PM Julia Gillard shares…

1 SMOOTH OPERATOR Whether matt or high shine, leather in all its variations and hues takes on a new ladylike loveliness. 2 SPORTY SPICE If you thought the bike short fad would never cycle into high fashion, think again. Our tip? Style with chic accessories to take this look from activewear to urbanwear. 3 BAGGING RIGHTS It’s the bumbag, but not as you know it. With golden chains and adjustable straps, the latest crop of styles beg to be worn slung across the body or casually thrown over your shoulder. 4 SOFT FOCUS Dusky rose, sky blue and the palest lemon form our palette of preference – especially when countered by cuts that are sleek rather than sweet. 5 LEG WORK Perhaps in protest of the ugly shoe trend, Prada responds with something positively pretty: sheer stocking socks peering…

time warp

The desire to travel has long been a tenet of Louis Vuitton: since 1854 the Parisian house has crafted cases and trunks for the global jetset. But the fashion frontrunner’s latest collection explores a different kind of wanderlust: time travel. While the aesthetic is bold and fabulously futuristic, the handiwork sewn into the seams of each garment harks back to yesteryear. For the show, the courtyard of the Louvre was transformed into a vision of intergalactic glamour with a sleek glass-encased runway. One model strode out in a sharp-shouldered minidress made from structured sequin netting, which took three days of meticulous hand-craftsmanship to construct. Then came an exquisitely embroidered waterproof jacket dripping with translucent sequins. In terms of accessories, the collection took cues from the brand’s time-honoured trunk designs, only downsized. Take the…

BRITAIN ON POINT A veteran dancer places a fresh new spin on the future of ballet It’s the art form renowned for having a brutal obsession with youth, forcing elite ballet dancers into retirement often just as they are hitting their peak. But Alessandra Ferri, 55, is challenging such restrictions, becoming a pioneer for mature dancers and redrawing the boundaries of ballet in the process. Despite retiring her stellar career in 2007, the mother of two made a triumphant return to the stage in Italy six years later, before eventually becoming a prima ballerina assoluta, one of only 13 dancers to ever receive the notable title. Having been honoured with opening Covent Garden’s Linbury Theatre earlier this year, Ferri used the opportunity to challenge choreographers to create a new generation of older characters and push…

mental health

Emotional health – it’s all we’ve got, right? I mean, if you’re not doing well mentally, then it’s almost impossible to do well in any other area of your life. I love that it’s something we’re focusing more on, because for a long time mental health was something that people thought: a) wasn’t important, and b) could be fixed with just medication. It’s essential to get to the root of what’s going on inside and not numb [your] feelings. Spending time with your family, going outside and breathing fresh air – these little things make a big difference. As someone who has struggled with bulimia and anorexia, all I can say is, be gentle with yourself. The most important thing is that you have to be the one who wants to…
