"From day one, people in the industry were often taken aback by my resemblance to my mom. As I get older, it happens even more, and it’s not just a visual thing: It’s everything from our mannerisms to our voices. It used to be that I didn’t see it at all, but now I will look at a picture and have to take a moment before realizing which one of us it is. But the biggest compliment is when someone says I act like my mom," @kaiagerber discusses modeling, her mother, and #MeToo. Tap the link in our bio to read the full interview.

Designer Jenia Kim ( @j.kim ) is one of an estimated half-million ethnic Koreans in the former Soviet Union who compose the diaspora known as the Koryo-saram. Though she now lives in Moscow, she was born in Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan, to ethnic Korean parents who belonged to a community that had been forcibly moved to Central Asia by Stalin in the late 1930s. For her latest design project, Kim reinterprets the national Korean dress of jeogori by using vibrant fabrics from traditional Uzbek costumes and Soviet-era materials. The collection and photographs reflect Kim's fragmented memories of home — how she experienced her culture as a child without having any real understanding about its origin, and her family's complicated history in the Soviet Union.

“I wanted to show you guys an easy look,” says @trixiemattel , the drag persona of Milwaukee-born Brian Firkus. “Well, easy for me, difficult for you.” Needless to say, the @rupaulsdragrace alum and rising country star has plenty of makeup secrets, having cut her teeth at beauty school and as a one-time employee of Sephora before forging her own path. “It’s kind of apparent that no one ever taught me how to do anything, because I kind of just do my own version of everything,” confesses Mattel.

@kennethize 's bright, bold designs earned him a finalist spot in this year’s @LVMH Prize and were revealed in their full glory on the runway at Arise Fashion Week this past April. With @Naomi Campbell and @imaanhammam on board to model his first womenswear pieces—including gently frayed palazzo pants and kaleidoscopic bandeau tops—for the show, Ize knew it was just the right moment to get the whole gang together: Instead of filling his guest list with local VIPs, he invited the circle of weavers to sit front row next to his closest friends. “I love what I do, and so much of that is based on the people who I work with,” says Ize. “I want to show the world just what we’re capable of.” Tap the link in our bio to read 5 game-changing designers discuss the communities behind their brands.

@arnold_daniel has earned a reputation as a tireless chronicler of New York’s seemingly infinite stories. Now, the Brooklyn-based street photographer has branched out with his first solo exhibition, 1:21, at @larrienyc , which opened to the public on Sunday, October 13 and will be open through November 24. Curated by former Vogue.com Visual Director @emrophoto , the show features a collection of previously unseen photos and videos that, in typical Arnold style, celebrate the everyday.

This summer, fires began to rage in the Amazon—known as the “planet’s lungs” and responsible for producing 20% of the oxygen in the earth’s atmosphere—as a direct result of Brazilian president Jair Bolsonaro’s weakening of environmental protections, which set the scene for mass deforestation. This thrust into the spotlight the work of a group of indigenous leaders from the Waorani, Kofan, and Siona nations in the Ecuadorian and Colombian Amazon, who have come together with Amazon Frontlines to give voice to their shared work of protecting their regions’ natural resources, such as Nemonte Nenquimo, pictured above. Nenquimo is the first female leader of CONCONAWEP (Waorani Organization of Pastaza Province ) and lead plaintiff in the Waorani’s people’s recent landmark lawsuit protecting half a million acres of their rainforest territory from oil drilling. Facing danger each day she fights for these causes, Nenquimo explains, “People who are part of this fight are being threatened by the government. They want to eliminate all of us leaders who appear in public and say that our territory isn’t for sale. As a woman and a mother, I feel strongly that life is more important than money.” On #IndigenousPeoplesDay, we share the stories of Nenquimo and three other delegates who are fighting for the future of a ravaged Amazon.

"As much insight as my mom could give me, there are some things I simply had to experience on my own. The industry is very different today—for one thing, social media transformed how models interact with the world. We now have outlets to share our own voices—and to support others who are doing the same." @kaiagerber reflects on finding her voice and her footing in an industry in flux.

Our November cover star @badgalriri is no stranger to taking a stand, and that includes when an offer came in to perform at the Super Bowl halftime show. “I couldn’t dare do that," she said.

On October 17, mementos of Lee Radziwill will go up for auction at Christie’s New York as Sale 17322, The Collection of Lee Bouvier Radziwill. The lot includes photographs by Peter Beard and a book commemorating the dedication of the John F. Kennedy memorial at Runnymede; a copy of One Special Summer, the illustrated travel journal Lee and Jackie made to commemorate their 1951 trip to Paris will also go up for sale. No life can be completely summed up by its remaining possessions. But they can, and do, lift a veil—in this case, on a doyenne of design, a style icon, and a historical figure.

@Dickinson , a thoroughly psychedelic take on Emily Dickinson's coming-of-age story, is one of the first shows out the gate for the new streaming service Apple TV+. And played by @haileesteinfeld , this is a portrayal of the writer that we’ve never glimpsed in black-and-white photos or oil portraits. In it, audiences will see a Dickinson who, as her poetry exclaims, “sweeps with many-colored brooms/ And leaves the shreds behind.” Tap the link in our bio for more of what we can expect from the costume drama, out November 1.
Over her 85 years, Lee Radziwill’s lovely things were legendary. And on October 17, the last of them will go up for auction at Christie’s New York as Sale 17322, The Collection of Lee Bouvier Radziwill. The lot includes personal mementos that are of historical importance, considering Radziwill was sister to First Lady Jackie Kennedy. “What's interesting is how much the owner reveals of themselves through what they have, what they had and what they kept,” says Jonathan Rendell, Deputy Chairman of Christie’s.

Longtime friends Anna Wintour and @donatella_versace took a trip down memory lane as they took the stage for day two of #ForcesofFashion. Together, the pair revealed some of their fondest memories, including one about a shared family vacation: Ahead of boarding a tiny plane on their way to an isolated ranch, Wintour said, “Donatella took one look at it and said, ‘Anna, this is not a plane, this is a hair dryer.’” Tap the link in our bio for more highlights from the iconic conversation, as well as for an exclusive look at more photos of the duo.
“I was 24 years old when I started as creative director at @Balmain ,” @olivier_rousteing said on the #ForcesofFashion stage, “and I decided to push for diversity and to remind people that maybe today I’m the only one to be creative director of a luxury French brand, but tomorrow we have to change it to step up and fight against it, just making sure that we can have more colors in fashion.” Tap the link in our bio for more highlights from Rousteing’s talk with Vogue’s Lynn Yaeger.

Anna Wintour and @donatella_versace ’s #ForcesofFashion conversation was an ebb and flow of heartfelt moments and bouts of pure comedy, but throughout the entire panel, the most endearing anecdotes were those between Wintour and one of her oldest, closest friends. For decades, the two have shared in each other’s triumphs and tragedies—and had plenty of fun along the way. “I really admire Donatella for her honesty in a world that isn’t always completely honest,” Wintour said. “And, also, how unbelievably loyal she is to her friends, and how deeply she cares about her family. She is the most extraordinary mother,” she said, before adding: “So I don’t think of her as Donatella Versace, the blonde, extraordinary icon that she is, I think of her as Donatella, my friend.” Tap the link in our bio to read more highlights from their panel.

“This conversation about diversity and inclusion is key, [and] it’s recurring. . . . It’s never gonna be perfect. It’s never gonna be clean, but I love that there is a deliberate intent to right a wrong and try to understand [the situation,]” said @kerbito For Day 2 of #ForcesofFashion, @traceeellisross sat down with @kerbito for a candid conversation on speaking up for silenced voices, creating new narratives through fashion, and the story behind @pyermoss ’s name.

One day @proenzaschouler ’s Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough were Parsons students, and the next they were fashion stars. Fashion’s overnight sensations don’t always make it, and many of the designers who came up alongside Hernandez and McCollough in post-9/11 New York have downsized or shuttered their businesses altogether. A decade-and-a-half later, Hernandez and McCollough, who spoke at today's #ForcesofFashion conference, are no longer the new kids on the block, but they still command the hippest crowds at New York Fashion Week.

“Success is being satisfied with yourself as a person. It’s feeling that you have done good in the world,” says @tomford “It’s choosing what you want to be in the world, how you want to relate to other people. If you’re happy and satisfied with whatever you’re doing. You can’t measure it by materialism.” Tap the link on our bio for more highlights from his #ForcesofFashion conversation with @juliannemoore Photographed by @coreytenold
Hello from our 2019 #ForcesofFashion conference! Kicking off the day was a conversation with @wesgordon of @carolinaherrera centered on one of the industry’s most relevant and challenging questions: How do you take up the mantle of a heritage brand and move it forward without losing its codes? At a time when creative directors are spending just a few years at a house—or even just a few seasons—the odds of nailing that sweet spot seem slim. But Gordon has made it look easy—and fun!

Many of Kumano’s fude-shi, or brush makers at companies like Hakuhodo and Chikuhodo, can trace their family’s roots in the trade back several generations, and the profession is at the heart of the city’s success. Of an estimated 27,000 citizens, more than 1,500 make their living in the brush business, and their connection to the craftsmanship is evident during the festival.

It’s no secret that Japan leads the world when it comes to brushes, particularly in the beauty industry, where global brands rely on Japanese manufacturing to create their tools. Kumano, a small city in Hiroshima prefecture, is the epicenter of the craft. More than 15 million brushes per year come out of Kumano alone.

At Japan's annual Kumano Fude Matsuri, or Brush Festival, brushes are given their due with a two-day celebration.

Less than a week after returning from a month of fashion shows, we are still thinking about how designers tackled the sustainability issue; we’re reflecting on fashion’s ability to mirror what’s happening in the world around us; we’re meditating on the power of a transportive, immersive show; and we’re speculating about what this season will mean for the decade ahead. In other words: It’s often about a lot more than clothes. But there’s no discounting the simple joy of a beautiful dress, either.
