Point of view

Fashion editorials:

A sophisticated season: The celebrated streets and salons of Prague provide the perfect backdrop for fall clothes that blend menswear traditions with modern femininity. All elements conspire to capture a romantic mood tailored tweed suits and overcoats paired with the drama of black, cropped or ankle grazing dresses, and the indispensable high heel. Photographed by Ellen Von Unwerth, in central Europe's most beautiful city, model Nadja Auermann embodies the spirit of a new glamour. 16-page fashion editorial.

The colour code: Every wardrobe could stand some brilliant touches, and this fall brings colour galore - the louder and bolder the better. Photographed by Steven Meisel ~ eight-page fashion editorial featuring models Shalom Harlow and Kirsty Hume.

Fashion's mavericks: They didn't get their rebel reputations by following the pack. Fashion's favourite bad boys, John Galliano and Jean Paul Gaultier, continue to use cultural references and eclectic inspirations to create collections that defy the trends-and, in doing so, inevitably start their own. Photographed by Steven Meisel. 8 page feature with models Nadja Auermann, Linda Evangelista, Christy Turlington, Shalom Harlow, Naomi Campbell, Amber Valletta, Niki Taylor and Mike Campbell.

Opposite attractions: For nighttime drama, two options are emerging: tailored tuxedos and fluid dresses. Both look equally sexy (especially in black, the quintessential evening shade), celebrating the body's every curve ~ ten-page fashion editorial featuring Naomi Campbell and Stephanie Seymour photographed by Juergen Teller.

Modern classics: Geoffrey Beene and Bill Blass: Season after season, their names are synonymous with great American design. Beene—who says his sexy dresses "scream of femininity"—has a flair for the dramatic. Blass turns out tailored pieces that reflect what he calls a "sportswear philosophy." But this fall, they have the same goal: to breathe new life into their chic signature styles ~ eight-page fashion editorial featuring model Debbie Deitering and another photographed by Ellen von Unwerth.

Pure fluff: There's something utterly unreal in the air this season. Fake fur—in a vibrant array of colors is flying on coats, suits, hats, and accessories to lend a sense of humour to fall's ultraglamorous mood. Photographed by Steven Meisel ~ six-page fashion editorial featuring Stephanie Seymour.

Shear magle: Amid fall's fabrics, shearling stands alone. Less obvious than traditional fur and less frivolous than the fake stuff, it's the ideal choice for abbreviated jackets that combine the fit of a cardigan with the warmth of a coat ~ six-page fashion editorial featuring Shalom Harlow photographed by Arthur Elgort.

Features:

Showtime: As America's first racy musical heads back to Broadway, John Heilpern gets the score on Show Boat's colossal new revival.

The glamorisation of violence: Brutality and gritty imagery are dominating popular culture, fashion, and an increasingly tabloid real life. Have we hit a perilous peak, wonders Luc Sante, or is the obsession simply a grand old tradition?

Our girl in Havana: Castro clings to power, the economy withers to nothing, and the people flee in inner tubes or scrounge for sugar and beans. As Julia Reed undergoes a surreal saga of thievery and secrecy in Havana, she begins to wonder which is more ludicrous—life in Cuba or the American government's response to “our closest enemy"

Depp gets deeper: Johnny Depp escaped an unhappy childhood to become a teen idol, then fled that image by playing a bunch of quirky, alienated youths, and has now graduated to adult roles. But as James Ryan learns, the actor hasn't forgotten his roots—or his taste for the bizarre. Portrait by Annie Leibovitz, 4 page feature.

The panted word: Of all the modern American masters, Cy Twombly may be the least modern and the least American. As he prepares for a major retrospective, Dodie Kazanjian finds him on the Italian coast, immersed in his private world of paint and poetry. Photographs by Bruce Weber.

Make-up pumps up: After several seasons of barefaced waifs, makeup is back with a bang—and showing its colours, in a bold palette of reds, pinks, and purples. Amy Astley looks at the face of the future ~ two pages on health and beauty, with beauty photo of Irina Pantaeva by Irving Penn.

5 Supermodels Face Up To Their Flaws.  Nobody's perfect: Naomi hates her feet. Cindy worries about cellulite. Christy is touchy about her hands. Linda is sensitive about her mouth. Nadja looks in the mirror and sees nothing special. Charles Gandee listens in as five supermodels rate themselves. Photographed by Penn over 8 pages.

Technovision: Fashion is facing the future in style, as designers appeal to technology for their latest creations. Borrowing high-performance fabrics and athletic shapes, they're creating street smart clothes that are functional yet sexy—perfect for nightlife or the sporting life. 6 page fashion editorial featuring model Linda Evangelista by photographer Nick Knight.

Body heat: Finding inspiration in everything from running tights to Blade Runner, designers are mixing chic shapes with high-tech touches. The result: a new focus on the figure and on modern fabrics (such as rubber and PVC) that mold to the body like sleek second skin ~ eight pages of fashion modeled by Irina Pantaeva, and photographed by Arthur Elgort.

Living: Past master: Drawing on his vast knowledge of design history, and using his own family château as a laboratory, André Dubreuil has become the favourite designer of the couture crowd. Hamish Bowles takes his measure.

Food: Table-hopping: Tirelessly subjecting himself to the mix of beautiful people, exquisite decor, and culinary innovation that is New York City's revitalized restaurant scene, Jeffrey Steingarten seeks out the best of the best and the best of the rest.

Talking fashion: New York-style stories: They may have tried their best to adopt post-1980s austerity, but now the social stars in Manhattan are happily dressing up again … Hollywood swingers: Who says fashion does lousy box office in L.A.? Today's brightest young stars certainly work it to their advantage.
