Marie Claire South Africa March 2015

Marie Claire South Africa is an iconic, trendsetting title for discerning, fashion-conscious women. It's a brand of depth and substance and offers a journalistic angle on issues not covered by other fashion magazines. Marie Claire is for multifaceted women with a shared mind-set: they are curious about the world and empathize with other women, and their interests range from social issues to fashion trends. The brand provides content not found anywhere else in South Africa: dynamic, picture-led reportage, real women’s stories, critical reporting and sophisticated fashion and beauty across age categories. Please note: this digital version of the magazine does not include the covermount items you would find on printed newsstand copies.

overcoming the stigma

Columnist MABALE MOLOI@MabaleMoloiIT’S NOT OFTEN that I share my heart in the public space, mainly because doing so opens me up to public scrutiny from those who feel entitled to a piece of you. However, over the last few months I’ve found myself in a lonely space where I was feeling a lot of sadness and a hopelessness that saw me having a session with a psychologist. While sitting in his armchair, I stared at the box of tissues beside me, suddenly bemused by those movie scenes where the patient gets to a point where they break down. I wondered how long it would take before I reached for the tissues. It took about half an hour. It was a combination of having to face the things in my life…

Kilometres hiked: 2 584MC: What drew you to shooting the series?The magnitude of these hikers’ journeys, and the chance to participate in it in my own small way. When I’ve gone backpacking I’m always amazed by how simple life becomes: sleep, eat, make forward progress, acknowledge beauty (and pain, too).

48 hours in bangkok

Silk magnate Jim Thompson’s houseTemple of the DawnWat ArunGolden Mount templePAUSE HERE, STOP THERE• Golden Mount (Wat Saket) is listed as a top tourist attraction but rarely receives the hordes of visitors that other temples do. Arrive early, take a slow walk up the 318 steps to the gold stupa, and enjoy 360° views of Bangkok.• Silk magnate Jim Thompson helped to revitalise the industry in Asia. His traditional Thai home is now a museum (Jimthompsonhouse.com) that’s absolutely worth a visit. The shop is a good place to buy quality (but pricey) silk products.• Lumpini Park is a 57-hectare green space surrounded by Bangkok’s office towers. Pack a bottle of something ice cold, hire a giant swan pedalo (seriously) and toast the sunset from the small lake. Yoga classes are…

GET TICKETS!The fourth annual Jozi Film Festival will be taking place from 20 to 22 February at several venues throughout the city.Jozifilmfestival.co.zaHow did your career in film-making begin?A high-school friend introduced me to the glories from the Golden Age of classic cinema but it was wanting to follow a career that would let me do, see and learn anything that really sparked my interest. I realised that making films is one of the most powerful mediums for communicating mankind’s most important invention, storytelling.Are there any particular challenges you face as a female film-maker?I’ve faced challenges, and it’s possible that some of them have been due to being female without my realising it, but I feel I’ve had more privileges than obstacles. Since my film Love The One You Love first…

(PUCCI)HYPERPIGMENTATION 101Expert Dr Natasha Chapman, Laserderm Medical Aesthetic ClinicsWhat is hyperpigmentation?Hyperpigmentation, or increased pigmentation on the skin, is the dark patches that make your skin tone appear uneven. It can be superficial or in deeper layers and it’s usually caused by sun damage, hormonal changes or skin ageing.In addition to staying out of the sun, using SPF products and following a good skin-care routine, what can you do?Treatment of hyperpigmentation involves a multi-level approach and differs according to the level in the skin where the pigmentation lies.
