HEROINE 8

ADJUSTMENT PARADOX

When it comes to forcing change you can talk all you want, but unless you’re part of making it happen, nothing will really shift. This is the adjustment paradox, and it needs to be broken.

HEROINE 8 celebrates people who aren’t waiting for consent, a pat on the back or their own hashtag. They are living what they believe. It’s infectious, and it works.

ON THE COVER

This Summer, actor Kate Mara will be staring in Ryan Murphy’s monumental FX series Pose, alongside TV’s largest ever trans cast. Mara speaks exclusively to Dior’s artistic director Maria Grazia Chiuri (who also happens to be the first woman at the helm of the house) to discuss their different fields and the roles they can play in moving conversations forward.

ALSO IN THIS ISSUE

Vera Wang talks to Stephane LaCava about her darker side: inspired by the dystopian future of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale – the Hulu original series which took the world by storm during a politically turbulent 2017.

For San Francisco musician Tamaryn, every record is a new reveal: subtle, emotive and incredibly intimate. She’s in conversation with long-time friend and fellow musician Liza Thorn, the pair talk about the myth of New York and art changing the world.

Plus some of the most relevant upcoming actors, including Madelaine Petsch (Riverdale), Odeya Rush (Lady Bird, upcoming Spinning Man and Dear Dictator), Gideon Adlon (upcoming Mustang and Blockers) Alexandra Shipp (X-Men Phoenix, upcoming Love, Simon and Shaft)
