Sarah Laing: ELLE Canada editor profile
Position: Associate features editor
At ELLE since: 2013
Who are your favourite fashion designers?
Dior, Carven and Miu Miu.
What is the most prized item in your closet?
A silk dress that my grandmother wore in the 1950’s. (Oh, that swishy skirt!)
What is one item you wish you had in your closet?
I am convinced this is a unicorn: a pair of black heels with a just-high-enough heel.
What is the one beauty product you currently can’t live without?
Hourglass Ambient Lighting blush in Diffused Heat. It’s like a highlighter/blush/trip to St Tropez all in one.
Who are your style and beauty icons?
Lauren Bacall, Audrey Hepburn, my mom.
What would be your ultimate fashion dream come true?
My ego probably wouldn’t survive this, but 10 minutes with Coco Chanel in full-brutal-honesty mode. I have a pair of jeans I really want to ask her about.
