Welcome to our new issue, a celebration of modern femininity. For fashion, this means demure silhouettes and sweet shades with an undercurrent of strength and sensuality, which makes the trend so much more interesting. These traits radiate from this week’s cover star, Liberty Ross, who, following a tough year in her personal life, returns looking more alluring than ever. The British model talks to The Edit about acting, family and how fashion gives her confidence.
We also feature the prince of pretty, designer Giambattista Valli; Kim Hersov shows us how to wear ruffles in Runway To Real Life; and for this week’s interview, we meet up with the perfect example of contemporary feminine resilience, the CNN war correspondent Arwa Damon. Currently reporting
on the situation in Syria, where her friend and mentor Marie Colvin lost her life last year, Damon reveals what motivates her to return to such scenes of devastation. Courageous, determined, smart and graceful, Damon's unique brand of femininity is inspiring.
