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.
