From Tracee Ellis Ross to Priyanka Chopra to Gabrielle Union.
For the first month of the year, Natalie Portman was photographed in the idyllic surroundings of Christian Dior's country estate and got candid about what she'd do for love.
Daisy Ridley—Rey herself—was our February cover star, opening up about the ups and downs of life as the a franchise megastar and her struggles with anxiety after she suddenly became famous upon landing the lead part in 2015's Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
For March, actor-producer-author Gabrielle Union sat down with editor-in-chief Vanessa Craft for a candid, wide-ranging conversation full of wisdom and humour that touched on everything from trauma to #MeToo to using her most authentic voice.
For this issue, editor-in-chief Vanessa Craft zipped over to cover star Keira Knightley’s native U.K. for a one-on-one with the two-time Oscar nominee. The actress/face of Chanel Coco Mademoiselle told us all about her own everyday activism (less plastic and meat, please), the feminist slant in the characters she plays and the moment she embraced making mistakes.
When we sat down to chat with actress/singer/Bollywood star Priyanka Chopra for the May cover, it was immediately evident that she’s just as charming and self-assured IRL. The 35-year-old Quantico star told us all about how she copes with failure (hint: there’s definitely ice cream in her freezer), why she never runs of ambition and what quirky mantra she lives by.
Our June issue starred supermodel Jasmine Tookes in our marine-inspired “Life Aquatic” beauty shoot, bringing us all our beachy-makeup inspo for the season.
For our summer issue, Charlize Theron hopped on the phone with IRL BFF Chelsea Handler and it got deep. The duo touched on everything weighing on Theron’s mind these days—from what she sees as her responsibility as a woman producer in Hollywood to raising her two children.
Stylish. Bold. Erudite. Jocular. And completely unforgettable. Our September cover star Tracee Ellis Ross is all that and more, which was immediately clear from our insightful convo and high-fashion shoot featuring the Black-ish star.
