"THE DAY THE POWER OF LOVE OVER­RULES THE LOVE OF POWER, THE WORLD WILL KNOW PEACE."

U Magazine - - LEBANON - - Ma­hatma gandhi

Fash­ion is ul­ti­mately a world of pow­er­ful beauty, and on that note we welcome in the month of May by cel­e­brat­ing women with our Power Is­sue. Funky flo­ral prints are work­ing across skirts, shirts, dresses, jack­ets and shorts this sum­mer, with fun geo­met­ric shapes like pat­terns and stripes tak­ing over the run­way for SS15. It’s stripes and the monochrome trend that are the more time­less go to's no mat­ter what the sea­son - so in­vest in these pieces! Polka dots are very much around this sea­son, with names such as Valentino, Dolce & Gab­bana, Marc Ja­cobs and Top­shop all show­cas­ing out­fits that are set­ting this trend. Gla­di­a­tor san­dals are the power shoes for sum­mer, so get laced up as these are the san­dals to be seen in! Feel the power with pearls of wis­dom to take your look from de­mure to dra­matic in­stantly on page 76. Emoji based trin­kets are the cool new jew­elry to opt for. The Twist presents the power of Emo­jis on page 77. The vi­brant new pal­ette from Chanel re­minds us of vivid skies and the blue seas of the Mediter­ranean. Bronzed skin and mes­mer­iz­ing eyes cre­ate a ra­di­ant sum­mer look while bold nails and col­or­ful lips com­plete the ef­fect. I just loved this col­lec­tion and found it so re­fresh­ing, take a look on page 89. Since healthy eat­ing should be ev­ery­one’s con­cern, we fea­ture a spe­cial ar­ti­cle about the power of food on page 102. This month it’s all about power dress­ing with our monthly con­trib­u­tor to U mag­a­zine, Lana El Sa­hely. Check out Lana's ar­ti­cle on page 27. I’m sure ev­ery­one is ex­cited to try their new on-trend out­fits and head down to the beach to en­joy the lovely blue skies! We have it all set for you, read on and see just what’s hot and what’s not!
