As we near the end of another busy year, there is little more alluring than the prospect of some much needed winter sun. And whether you are Cape Town or Caribbean-bound, these more exotic destinations are perfect for parading the new season’s sultry tropical looks: think sun-drenched color sundresses by Peter Pilotto, print crop tops by Jonathan Saunders and sleek swimwear by Stella McCartney.
No one works this cool new vacation look with more brio than our cover girl, Victoria’s Secret Angel Alessandra Ambrosio, in heat-seeking pieces by Jason Wu, Kenzo and Erdem. The Brazilian may be renowned for her amazing body, but here, she reveals her post-baby battle to return to the runway.
While we can’t promise you a “super” physique,
our Beauty pages will help you achieve a beach-perfect stomach for vacation and beyond. Plus, meet the influential fashion editor from St. Lucia, Shala Monroque, whose work for Kids4Coral aims to preserve the Caribbean’s real tropical motifs for generations to come.
