I’m homesick. Man, am I homesick. Australia is a special place to miss at the best of times, let alone the worst. With our international mobility being restricted due to COVID-19, there is a very particular pain that comes with realizing you can’t get home—well, easily anyway—even if you wanted to. Which is why this cover story, starring Melissa McCarthy and photographed in the beautiful Australian region of Byron Bay, fills my heart (once I got done tearing up). Melissa, along with Nicole Kidman, Bobby Cannavale (with partner Rose Byrne and kids in tow), Michael Shannon, Regina Hall, and other cast members of the upcoming Hulu series Nine Perfect Strangers, decamped to Australia in July after it became clear that filming in Los Angeles would be impossible. This gang—many of whom…

The Badass Women issue is always fascinating with your choices. Glad to see adding “glass ceiling” breakers like @Browns [Callie] Brownson & @Washington_FB [Jennifer] King. Maybe look @SenatorCantwell next year as she broke a huge ceiling. —@DBUCKSHNIS, via Twitter @LBuitta [Lauren Bean Buitta] It is great to see cybersecurity represented in @InStyle. Congratulations for being in the Badass 50, and thank…

the start: the news in style

UP FOR GRABS In celebration of Earth Day, Salvatore Ferragamo has reinvented its iconic top-handle silhouette with eco-friendly materials (cork, linen, and recycled polyester) and pledged to offset the carbon emissions from its production. The catch? Only 500 of these limited-edition purses were made—so to bag one, you’d better be fast. Runway Refresh Fans of Simone Rocha’s ethereal-cum-edgy work will delight in her H&M collaboration, which nods to some of the Irish-Chinese designer’s most memorable shows of the past decade. “I wanted to reimagine details from my archives rather than do mere re-editions,” Rocha says. “I’ve reinterpreted things for now.” Carried Away Linen-centric brand 120% Lino introduces just the right complements to its diaphanous designs: a selection of breezy summer purses made in partnership with accessories go-to Rosantica.
