BE­HIND THE IS­SUE

ELLE (Canada) - - Contents -

1)We didn’t talk to art di­rec­tor JED TALLO for, well, at least 45 min­utes after he showed us this photo from the One&Only Palmilla. If you’re not prone to jeal­ousy, read all the deets on his oth­er­worldly stay in Mex­ico in our spa spe­cial, “Des­ti­na­tion Well­ness” (p. 107).

2) Ma­jor props to prop stylist CAITLIN DO­HERTY, who brought the open road to a ran­dom park­ing lot in Toronto’s West End for our Western-in­spired shoot, “High Noon” (p. 94). REINER CAR­LOS, of photography duo Car­los + Al­yse, ex­pertly cap­tured it all—with­out break­ing the slight­est sweat.

3) JEN­NIFER CO­HEN might ac­tu­ally have more en­ergy than the en­tire ELLE team put to­gether. To wit: The L.A.-based Win­nipeg na­tive is a well­ness trainer, an app de­vel­oper, a Forbes colum­nist and the au­thor of the new fit­ness jour­nal Badass Body

Goals. Oh, and she some­how man­aged to squeeze in time to write about why prac­tis­ing well­ness shouldn’t feel like work in “No Chill” (p. 68).

4) Boy bye. Van­cou­ver-based writer MEREDYTH COLE re­flects on the end of the era of the bad boy in her heart—and in pop cul­ture—in “Bet­ter Men” (p. 76). So how else is she putting her­self first these days? “Self-care and self-indulgence are ba­si­cally in­dis­tin­guish­able for me: ’80s movies, crois­sants and chronic over­spend­ing. Also, a whole day in bed.”

5) Good thing man­ag­ing edi­tor CARLI WHITWELL’s interview with Tracey An­der­son took place be­fore her work­out with the celeb trainer at the Westin Chicago River North ho­tel—she could barely crawl off the mat after­wards. For more on our in­spir­ing (and ex­haust­ing) in­ter­na­tional hang with Gwyneth Pal­trow’s go-to fit­ness guru, turn to p. 110.

6) Min­i­mal­ism def­i­nitely wasn’t the mood for our OTT an­i­mal­print shoot, “Ready to Roar” (p. 80). Stylist JU­LIANA SCHIAVINATTO pulled the pret­ti­est bold gold jew­ellery to com­ple­ment the bright pat­terns and luxe fab­rics in this fashion story.
