A PERFECT MESS
Get real this season.
EDITOR’S POV I’m always inspired by women who have a strong sense of identity and define beauty on their own terms. This month, we explore how to create and perfect the persona you present to the world—from your fragrance fingerprint to the hairstyle that elevates you to icon status. Of course, how you see yourself runs deeper than the shade of nail polish or lipstick you choose, but when you’re determining a beauty signature, it’s certainly a fun place to start. VANESSA CRAFT
