“I’ll wear the collar turned up on this great tailored coat.”
“A crisp white shirt and leather skirt is a powerful pairing.”

This week, The Edit focuses on a more powerful, overt incarnation of the new season’s sensual mood: the ’80s remix. From the modern master of the sexy silhouette, Olivier Rousteing at Balmain, to the mistress of overstatement, Donatella Versace, designers were inspired by the attitude and sex appeal of the power-dressing era. Ahead of four exciting new releases this year, our cover star, actress Jennifer Connelly, who began her career in 1982, embodies the 2014 twist on ’80s style – sharp, strong, yet beautifully feminine. Modeling pieces by Hervé Léger and Gucci, she talks making marriage work and Hollywood’s attitude to aging on page 10.
The beauty world often promises miracles in a jar, but in Power Players, we reveal the very latest
innovations that really will make a radical difference: from a spray that makes fine hair appear thicker, to the pigmentation blitzer that is eight times more effective than its predecessors. This is fashion and beauty to make you feel empowered – go forth and conquer.
