March 2013: Letter from the editor


March 2013 | Bernadette Morra

Photography by Vanessa Heins; hair and makeup by Sheri Stroh for Plutino Group; shot on location at the Shangri-la Hotel Toronto.

While waiting for MiuMiu’s Spring 2013 show in Paris to begin, I looked around the room at the fashion editors, bloggers and front-row starlets and began to feel that anything goes. Flats and four-inch heels. Plain, boxy tops and crazy printed blazers. Mirrored minis and mid-calf pleated skirts. All were present and accounted for.

Then Miuccia Prada’s models emerged in denim pencil skirts, matching coats and needle-nose pumps, adding ’50s polish to the ’60s mod and ’90s grunge that had already hit the Spring 2013 runways. I leaned over to my seatmate and remarked, “You really can wear anything now.”

“Yes,” he agreed, “as long as you have style.” Read more »

FASHION Magazine March 2013 Cover: Hailee Steinfeld


Fashion Magazine March 2013 Cover Hailee Steinfeld

16-year-old former Oscar-nom Hailee Steinfeld covers FASHION Magazine’s March 2013 issue. In this sneak peek, features editor, Elio Iannacci recounts the best moments from his interview with the actress last month.

When asked where she wanted to meet for her exclusive face-to-face interview for FASHION Magazine’s March 2013 issue, Hailee Steinfeld was strategic about her choice. Picking the Fred Segal café in Santa Monica, the Oscar-nominated actress wanted a place where she was surrounded by racks of designer clothes so after she finished talking shop, she could shop around. On her to-do list was getting a dress that she intended to wear to her 16th birthday party, an invite-only bash that was thrown in her honour at the Rolling Stones Restaurant on Hollywood Boulevard. The Louis Vuitton look she went with may have ended up getting major posts around the net—and a few snaps in People magazine—but the day she met up with me, there was another designer Steinfeld was thinking about.

“I love Prabal Gurung, so he’s always an option,” she says, “I remember sitting in the front row to watch his show at fashion week and the music came on and all these gorgeous clothes had such a message. All these strong-willed women—holding their own—walking down his runway looked as gorgeous as ever. I walked away feeling like that’s what I’d feel like when I would put his clothes on”
