It is probably not the fairest thing to do to womankind, showcasing swimwear on modern pinup and former Victoria’s Secret model Miranda Kerr, but with this summer’s one-pieces and bikinis more glamorous than ever, we couldn’t resist.
For the 99.99 percent of us who don’t have the body of a ‘super’, it is still a season to get excited about, with summer’s hottest pieces incorporating ever more technical virtuosity (thanks to panels and fabrics designed to shape and slim), particularly the season’s must-buy: a super-sexy one-piece in that most forgiving of colors – ever-elegant black.
We also talk to New York swimwear queen Lisa Marie Fernandez about her beach-style secrets, and ask bikini devotee Christa D’Souza to reconsider the,
in her eyes, unglamorous one-piece and find the sleekest versions to parade poolside. And we are proud to introduce our new nutrition editor, Rosemary Ferguson, whose first column tackles smart fasting – the ultimate pre-beach health plan.
