editor’s letter

The explosion of social-media stars has to be one of the defining points of this decade. Tech platforms have enabled everyone and anyone with a phone in their hand to become their own brand, and the world is now awash with people sharing their thoughts and wardrobes, starting conversations, inspiring ideas and shaping the way we live and think. Separating the good from the mediocre, and authentic, trustworthy voices from the commercially driven pouters, however, can take some sifting, which is what we’ve done in this month’s issue. We’ve selected 30 women who we feel encapsulate Marie Claire’s ethos to ‘Think Smart, Look Amazing’ – from fashion game-changers and beauty mavericks encouraging diversity to body positivity champions and lifestyle experts. See why we’re loving them on page 92. This month’s cover…

Modernist works Clean shapes + minimal hardware + a fresh palette = the cool-girl way to carry your wares. Haute fuzz The catwalks were awash with all things fluffy, accessories included.

LUST ITEM Miu Miu’s standout faux fur and crystal mules are the shoe of the season – don’t be shy. STRIKE A CORD Seventies chic is making a comeback: at Prada and Paul & Joe, corduroy was key.

‘Sculptural silhouettes and unexpected volume are my USP’ A certain puff-sleeved dress in a rich shade of egg-yolk yellow was the turning point for Rejina Pyo. You’d know it if you saw it – it popped up on many an Instagram feed, styled to sunny perfection by a bevy of influencers. Until then, Korean-born, London-based Pyo, who describes her design USP as ‘sculptural silhouettes and unexpected volume’, had been under the radar. She studied art in Seoul (her mother used to be a fashion designer, too), before moving to London to train at Central Saint Martins. Since launching her label in 2014, Pyo has been quietly building a reputation for sculptural, abstract art-inspired pieces with a purse-friendly ‘contemporary’ price tag. They appeal to the girl who may not have £1,500 to…

skirt with a zip running up the middle. ‘If you wanna be a bit more sexy you can, you know... whoop!’ she grins, unzipping it halfway. Klum is aware that low-cost fashion can often mean low quality. ‘A lot of affordable [clothes] you wash once and can basically wear once,’ she says. Even though the collection definitely hits the affordable mark (a camisole costs £6.99), she believes every piece would pass the test with her designer-loving LA friends. One of these friends has, in fact, already put in an advance order for the brown suede biker jacket. She plucks the very item from a clothes rail and thumbs the suede. ‘I don’t think people would believe this jacket was Lidl,’ she says, pronouncing it ‘Leedle’, rather than ‘Liddle.’ She also says…
