emotional rescue

The perfect song can crystallize emotions you didn’t even know you were feeling. And with her unfiltered lyrics, our cover star, Kacey Musgraves, has mastered the art of connecting with her audience on a visceral level. Her upcoming album channels complicated feelings of heartbreak and isolation—but also the beauty of what it means to be alive right now. After achieving incredible success and winning the Grammy for Album of the Year, she says, “I felt, in many ways, on top of the world in my career, but in my personal life, I felt like I was dying inside… I felt broken.” She tells Fashion Features Director Véronique Hyland that she found her catharsis through creation, making music that spoke to both her highs and lows.

costume drama

“It’s not historically accurate; it’s very designed,” explained dress historian Bernadette Banner to her more than one million YouTube subscribers in a year-end video ranking 2020’s spate of costume dramas on their accuracy. Still, anachronisms like Queen Charlotte’s “random mid-eighteenth-century gown” in a sea of late-eighteenth-century Empire numbers certainly didn’t stop some 82 million viewers from tuning in to the Regency-era antics of the show she was discussing, Netflix’s Bridgerton.
