“Team a fuss-free, slouchy top with chic wide pants.”
“This subtle intrecciato design says simple, understated luxury.”
“Keep your makeup effortless and natural.”

With the holiday season almost upon us, fashion delivers a relaxed new mood, perfect for stylish downtime and an elegant counterpoint to this time of year's high-voltage eveningwear. Think wide-leg pants and simple tops and tunics, à la Katharine Hepburn, the all-time queen of laid-back, easy style.
It's an irresistibly insouciant '40s-by-way-of-the-'70s aesthetic, perfect for this week's cover star, actress and supermodel Milla Jovovich. The glamorous yet natural beauty channels the mood in J.W.Anderson and Acne pants, a Marni tunic and the new pool slides (a hot ticket for the season ahead) by Isabel Marant. In a candid interview, she talks about family, style and her easy-going life philosophy.
On the subject of family, global beauty names
share their mothers' simple dressing-table wisdom in this week's beauty special, while in Style Rethink, Christa D'Souza ventures out of her pajamas to try key pieces from the big-easy trend, which she declares are just as comfortable, but infinitely more chic.
