FOL­LOW ME: @marcel­gull on In­sta­gram FOL­LOW SIM­PLY YOU @Sim­plyYouMag on In­sta­gram

We are thrilled to have one of New Zealand’s most beau­ti­ful women, Lor­raine Downes, grace the cover. Af­ter more than three decades in the na­tional spot­light – which all be­gan when she won Miss Uni­verse at just 19 – Downes is set to re­lease her me­moir, Life, Loss, Love. In our in­ter­view (page 142) we delve into her beauty and life­style se­crets and dis­cover that she truly is el­e­gance per­son­i­fied.

We hope you love our easy-to-nav­i­gate, five-sec­tion struc­ture. ‘In­te­ri­ors’ in­cludes stun­ning homes and colour­ful ideas for kitchen and bath­room ren­o­va­tions (page 87), plus in­spi­ra­tion for a de­li­ciously sim­ple long lunch. The new ‘Style’ pages cham­pion real women, in­di­vid­u­al­ity and wardrobe know-how (and don’t miss the ‘Dior through the decades’ fea­ture on page 126). ‘Fash­ion’ is where you’ll find fab­u­lous photo shoots of all the luxe new looks we love, ‘Beauty’ cel­e­brates ap­pear­ance, body and mind and, lastly, ‘Col­lec­tions’ al­lows you to shop the new sea­son in one place.

A sin­cere thank you goes to all the Sim­ply You women we’ve called on while cre­at­ing this is­sue – and of course to all our read­ers. We hope these pages in­spire you as much as you all in­spire us.
