Beyond the cover, the issue is full of seasonal goodies. Among the tastemakers in our pages are Pierpaolo Piccioli and Maria Grazia Chiuri, the powerhouse duo behind Valentino; actress Clemence Poesy, and the long-influential style icon Iris Apfel. Our Closet Confidential feature takes you into the wardrobe of Marni daughter Carolina Castiglioni.
We also turn the lens on our own tribe with the Restyling the Stylists feature. In it, the assistants and the editors dress each other just as they’ve always wished they could, if only for a day. A few more flips bring you to all the gems of our Christmas gift guide. It’s filled with fashion, accessories and curiosities for everyone on your list.
As an early present, we also give you True Blood’s Alexander Skarsgard... in a tux. Better yet, he has a message for ELLE readers. He says: ‘Tell them I will marry them all.’
