editor’s letter

Summer starts here (page 81).Nino Muñ oz shot Miranda Kerr at her Malibu home for our cover story (page 46).As I furiously type this, all I can focus on is the frantic few weeks ahead before the summer shutdown. There are two issues of the magazine to close, school concerts to attend, gifts to buy, meals to prepare and a holiday to organise (yep, left it till the last minute, again). Meanwhile, my husband appears blissfully oblivious to the tsunami of tasks and ensuing stress engulfing my world. It appears I’m not alone. According to writer Gemma Hartley, who has spent years researching emotional labour (the unpaid, unnoticed work that goes into keeping your family life ticking along), women nearly always pick up the slack because men don’t notice the…

miranda kerr

Stella McCartney dress, at mytheresa.com; Louise Olsen x Alex and TrahanasAge: 35. Current residence: Los Angeles. Off-duty beauty: Kerr arrived at the shoot in a white tee and jeans and holding her new baby, Hart. Only natural: “I’m really conscious to only use the purest, most nourishing products on my skin that don’t impart harsh chemicals.” Everyday essentials: “I’m obsessed with my Kora Organics Noni Glow Face Oil and the Rose Quartz Luminizer. I put [the luminizer] on my brow bone and near my temples.” New sophisticate: At the shoot, Kerr proved a style chameleon in structured gowns, classic white suiting and soft separates. Her favourite piece? A floaty Derek Lam frock. Sweet dreams: “Sleep is super important. I spray lavender mist on my pillow and face before bed.”KORA Rose…

rodeo drive

Paper flags fluttered in the wind, strums of folk guitar reverberated around the arena, and as well-heeled guests took their seats on the grounds of a 19th-century French château, eight graceful Mexican riders saddled up and cantered into the ring.Since taking the reins as artistic director at Christian Dior in 2016, Maria Grazia Chiuri has been a champion for women (notably, she’s the house’s first-ever female creative lead). “We Should All Be Feminists” proclaimed a T-shirt in her debut show, sparking headlines across the globe and spawning a whole new generation of followers.The show was fittingly dubbed the “Diorodeo”.First created by Christian Dior in 1947, the Bar jacket made a chic return.FEARLESS FEMALE RIDERS PROVIDED STYLISTIC INSPIRATIONTraditional Mexican motifs were cut into intricate embroiderytwo escaramuzas stand with their horsesDior’s cult…

USIN THE SPOTLIGHTA new book celebrates Annie Leibovitz’s 50-year careerWhen it comes to contemporary portraits, Annie Leibovitz is the queen. She’s even photographed the royal matriarch – just one of the instantly iconic images that appear in her latest portfolio: Annie Leibovitz at Work (Phaidon, $79.95). The acclaimed photographer, 69, reveals the inner workings of her practice, narrating the story of her incredible working life. It’s a rollcall of legends, starting with Richard Nixon’s resignation, a story she covered with Hunter S. Thompson, and ending with Barack Obama’s campaign. In between is a 1975 Rolling Stones tour (“the thing that saved me was that I had a camera by my side”), the Vanity Fair milestones – including Whoopi Goldberg in the milk bath and pregnant Demi Moore (“it broke ground…

the year of women

RUN THE WORLDBeyoncé proved her pulling power in April, when she became the first African-American woman to headline Coachella. Her electric show was replete with references to black universities, including a marching band, step dancers and her own sassy sorority. Following the performance, she donated $US100,000 to four historically black colleges. Queen Bey indeed.(PHOTOGRAPHY BY GETTY IMAGES.)A MODERN PRINCESSWhen Prince Harry wed a mixed-race, feminist, divorced American actress on May 19, we rejoiced: here was a duchess who would break royal traditions and usher in a new era for the monarchy. And on her tour of Australia and New Zealand in October, she lived up to the hype, not only announcing her baby news but making a game-changing speech about women’s suffrage.FASHION ROYALTYTo the surprise of the style set, the…
