what we love about may 2018

1. LOST AND FOUND Chances are, you’ve read (and love) Zora Neale Hurston. Which means, like us, you already preordered your copy of Barracoon: The Story of the Last “Black Cargo” (Amistad), available May 8. Hurston’s never-before-published manuscript chronicles the life of one of the last known living survivors of the Atlantic slave trade. 2. IN BLOOM Stop and smell the art at the New York Botanical Garden’s “Georgia O’Keeffe: Visions of Hawai‘i.” The exhibit, opening May 19, features 20 works inspired by the artist’s nine-week visit to Hawaii in 1939, as well as Hawaiian flora. 3. MOTHER KNOWS BEST We’ve got your post–Mother’s Day mimosa brunch plans: Breaking In. This pulpy thriller flick packed with jump scares and ass-kicking action stars Gabrielle Union as a mother protecting her children during a home invasion. Don’t…

There are so many reasons to love spring: warmer weather, longer days, the hint of summer. We couldn’t resist filling this issue with swimwear—flip to “Sun Day,” page 124, for simple-yet-sophisticated bathing suits and cover-ups, or to page 57 for sunglasses and all beach-worthy accessories. But if I’m being totally honest, I have to admit that my absolute favorite thing about this season is spring cleaning. It’s a chance to shed the baggage of the winter (or, really, of all year) and begin again, renewed by having less weighing me down. It turns out I am not alone in thinking this way. The brilliant and funny Issa Rae, one of our five cover stars, admits she loves early mornings, Mondays, and even the month of January for the same reason.…

Joint Task Force Your package on sexual harassment [“Sex, Lies, and Human Resources”] is an inspiring take in the wake of this conversation. What I like most is that the writers don’t pretend to know everything. A lot of times people talk about this issue in black and white, in terms of what is acceptable and what’s not. This package addresses the gray area, the uncertainty, which I think makes the conversation more accessible, especially to those who aren’t well-versed in the topic. Many people are confused but are too afraid to say or do the wrong thing, and then never get clarification. This piece doesn’t try and pretend to be perfect or know all the answers, which is why I think it’s a crucial read. @megannenicole: WORD. “How do you distmantle…

Having a Moment MONOI This coconut oil infused with Tahitian gardenias has long been revered for its intoxicating scent, but it’s also being used for treatment benefits. In Éminence’s night cream, it helps hydrate and firm your complexion. L’Oréal Paris combines it with floral extracts and sunflower oils for a shine-enhancing hair elixir. And SheaMoisture’s multipurpose hydrator can be used alone or as a booster: Add a pump or two to your favorite products for extra moisture and a hit of that famous floral fragrance. ARCH EXPLORER Women all over the world define their brows in different ways.

Plane must-haves: “Bioderma’s Atoderm lip balm is the only one that really hydrates my lips. And I bring Joanna Vargas’ face masks and Honest Beauty’s facial oil, which I also use on my hands because it helps with my eczema.” Recovery plan: “I always pack a travel-size V.I.P. spray [above] to give my hair some postflight volume so I can go straight to work when I land.” Treatment to try: “The deep tissue massage at the Address Downtown, in Dubai, is the best I’ve ever gotten.” Top spa: “Hacienda na Xamena, in Ibiza, has a treatment where you move through eight pools at different temperatures, and they all have hydro-jet massagers. The views from the pools are stunning.” International inspo: “My family is from Quito, Ecuador, and I love the beauty culture there. There…
