editor’s letter

Well, this is exciting. Finally, a double December/January fashion-palooza issue! Dear reader, how I have longed for this. At the end of the year, as we careen toward a more hopeful and healthy global future, all we wanted to do here at InStyle was make beautiful, joyful images—lots and lots of them—with women we admire. If I’ve achieved anything as editor in chief thus far, I hope I have created a community.

the start: the news in style

STAR TURN If Wolk Morais’s latest collection feels boldly cinematic, the effect is not a coincidence. “We were inspired by the tradition of updating Shakespearean plotlines for contemporary audiences,” explains Brian Wolk, who co-founded and runs the brand with fellow designer Claude Morais. “We thought of Puck in A Midsummer Night’s Dream when creating this poison green look.” Like the rest of the collection, the striking three-piece number was made from repurposed material (discarded fabric sourced from the attic of a costume shop near the label’s studio in Hollywood). “It was tossed aside as ‘damaged goods’ because the dye had faded with time,” says Morais. “But we instantly fell in love with its age-inflected ombré effect.” Totally Lit Celebrate the 200th anniversary of Louis Vuitton with a lively new novel, Louis Vuitton: L’audacieux,…
