editor’s letter

“ IF YOU OBEY all THE RULES, YOU MISS ALL the FUN ” — KATHARINE HEPBURN I first encountered the force of nature that is Chrissy Teigen on Twitter, with her candid and hilarious posts on everything from politics to stretch marks. I immediately warmed to the model and entrepreneur, and it turns out I wasn’t alone – everyone at ELLE feels the same way. When the internet can seem like an overwhelming place, Chrissy makes it feel that much more welcoming. She is honest, smart, relatable and her own woman – which makes her the perfect cover star for our January issue. Best of all, in person she’s as likeable as she seems online, as you will find out when you read her interview on page 1O4. One thing that…

guest list

THE MAKE-UP MAESTRO SARAH TANNO Make-up artist Sarah has two homes: one in Los Angeles with her fiancé Tim and his two kids, and another at the Haus of Gaga, where she is Lady Gaga’s award-winning personal make-up artist. She worked with the singer and actress on the series American Horror Story and recent box-office hit A Star is Born, but she’s not resting on her laurels: ‘Next, I would love to get over my fear of public speaking and do some teaching eventually,’ she says. First, though, she has a wedding to plan before the end of 2O18: ‘I’m blown away that we’re actually making time to have a wedding,’ she says. Turn to page 1O4 to see Sarah’s work on Chrissy Teigen.

the great outdoors

“THE FUN of AW18’S TAKE ON COUNTRYSIDE DRESSING is IN its PUNCH-PACKING, bright ACCENTS ” When is there a better time to settle in to the sofa wearing a mammoth sklanket? The months of December and January favour the slothlike. And good news: if the AW18 catwalks are anything to go by, so does fashion. With nights still getting longer – and temperatures creeping lower – we can literally and figuratively take comfort in the season’s cushy heritage looks: country-inspired blanket scarves, bed jackets, scarf prints and chunky-soled boots; swaddling styles we throw on to face whiplash winds and downpours. If you’re expecting 5O shades of beige, there is a bit of that (carried through to SS19, thanks to Riccardo Tisci’s Burberry debut). But the fun of AW18’s take on countryside dressing…

the news

THE MOOD LET’S DANCE …or not. Thankfully, for the less coordinated among us, we can forego January’s fitness kick and dabble in dance through fashion. Performance permeated the AW18 and SS19 shows, with fancy footwork from a troupe of dancers at Dior and Pina Bausch quotes on designer Maria Grazia Chiuri’s moodboard. Gucci also partnered with the Michael Clark Company for a special event in Milan ahead of showing its collection at the Théâtre Le Palace in Paris, while Acne Studios featured posters for the Merce Cunningham dance company and NYC Ballet as prints on jumpsuits and T-shirts. So you can look the part, even if you’ve got two left feet. THE PIECE FIVE-A-DAY FASHION Spotted: one incredibly specific trend, that being three oranges in a mesh bag (all over Instagram, inspired by the zesty…

giuliva heritage collection

‘I’ve always loved wearing men’s stuff,’ says Margherita Cardelli, one half of the team behind Giuliva Heritage Collection. Which is why the luxury ready-to-wear label, founded four years ago with her now-husband Gerardo Cavaliere, began with six coats inspired by classic men’s shapes, including ‘the perfect trench’, a velvet dinner jacket and a single-breasted pinstripe style. ‘We said, let’s see how it goes,’ she explains over the phone from their home in Italy. It went well. Very well. Fast-forward 1O months and Margherita and Gerardo’s label has experienced astonishing growth – not just with a 1,O34 per cent spike in sales in a single week when their current collection launched, but with the size of its offer. AW18 saw the launch of 8O pieces, impeccably cut in sumptuous wools and with…
