Stephanie Mark has made a name for herself as one half of the duo behind The Coveteur, a website that documents the closets of some of fashion’s biggest names. Alongside co-founder Jake Rosenberg, Mark has released a coffee table book called The Coveteur: Private Spaces, Personal Style featuring 43 exclusive profiles of designers, trendsetters, and icons (hello, Hugh Hefner!) We caught up with Mark to talk about OTT collections, starstruck moments, and being “adopted” by Bobbi Brown.
“Christian Louboutin was really special. He’s so kind, and he’s only asked five or six press outlets in his house throughout his career. Being in his space, hearing him tell the story of how we got started—he’s an icon in fashion but he’s an icon to everyone. To have that one on one time with him was so special. I was really nervous, and I don’t get nervous that much!”

“Suzanne Rogers is a collector in the truest form, she really champions designers she works with and buys from. She gets to know the designers and supports them. Shooting her closet took a long time, we walked in and were like ‘We’re gonna need more people at this shoot. We need to call for back-up reinforcements!’”
“For Cindy Crawford, we were nervous and excited, it was an ‘oh my god pinch me’ moment. Just because of the impact she’s had on the industry. Her house is so stunning in Malibu, right by the water. It was jaw-dropping. She is so lovely, and laid-back, and talked about her cottage in Muskoka.”

“We are in people’s houses, so it’s not uncommon for people to feed us, we lie in people’s beds. Bobbi Brown, she literally adopted us. She sent us home with food—we were staying at an AirBNB and she was like ‘There’s no food there!’ Jake went to her house for the Jewish holidays.”

Don't have time to commit to a 10-step routine? Just do this.
It would be nice if we could just eat and drink our way to perfect skin: a bite of salmon here, a glass or two or water there. “Unfortunately when you ingest things orally, they don’t necessarily go to the skin to give benefits,” says Dr. Kucy Pon, a Toronto-based dermatologist. “With regard to collagen-based drinks or food, there is not a lot of data in the medical literature to know whether there are true benefits to the skin.” Takeaway: Apply a topical product in addition to any supplements you might be taking.
If you do just one thing in your…
Exfoliate. “A healthy rate of skin-cell renewal is one of the key components of radiant and even-toned skin,” says New York dermatologist Dr. Dennis Gross, who recommends the daily use of alpha- or beta-hydroxy acids.
"Scientific research shows that collagen and elastin production starts to decline in quantity and quality when we reach the age of 30,” he explains. A retinoid will stimulate new cell production and “inhibit the body’s natural enzymes that break down collagen.”
Add peptides into your routine. "They stimulate collagen in a very unique way,” says Gross. “The more receptors you put to work, the more firming you’ll see. If your concern is wrinkles or laxity, then it’s an important ingredient to look for in your products.” (See here for more info on why they are key.)
Skin is drier now than ever before. Use an oil, like Estée Lauder Advanced Night Repair Intensive Recovery Ampoules ($135 for 60), to hydrate and prevent water loss.

Okay, first – look, we have exciting new (Canadian exclusive!) posters for the Gilmore Girls sorta-sequel, premiering on Netflix November 25!
Second, OMG we also have never-before-revealed plot details of what's going down in the four 90-minute episodes!
In a release accompanying the photos, Netflix very casualllllly shares this little blurb about where we find our favourite Stars Hollow-ians, 9 years after the first series ended.
"...Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life finds each of our leading ladies at a major crossroad: Lorelai’s relationship with Luke is at an unnerving standstill; Rory’s budding journalism career in New York has stalled before it's even begun; and Emily’s world is turned upside down following the untimely passing of her beloved husband, Richard."
Take a moment to scroll through these posters (organised according to the four seasons, aka 'winter, spring, summer or fallllll, all you have to do is call'), digest, reread and come find us in the comment section to share how you're processing all this.
