Inside our February 2019 issue!


Where the heart lies

In the production of each issue, there are moments that take my breath away. A glowing Nandi Madida and visible baby bump among the roses at Beechwood Gardens was such a moment. The Durban-born Mr and Mrs Madida have become one of the most beloved figures in entertainment. They are not only remarkable performers and social-media titans, but together reflect a union that’s built and nurtured. On my list of favourite things is Cavern Clay, the 2019 colour of the year as decreed by Sherwin-Williams, manufactures of interior and exterior paint. In fashion and décor especially, this colour creates an earthy, soulful aesthetic. “Envision beaches and deserts, and sunwashed late summer afternoons – all of this embodied in one colour,” says colour expert Sue Wadden. As we welcome the month of love,  I know that you’ll find inspiration in the bold optimism coming through our edit of trends, and underlying theme of self love. Glamour’s beauty team have put together a selection of the best and current floral fragrances, and our memoirs contributors share what love means to them. It’s a feel-good and affirming issue packed with inspiring visuals and stories from diverse perspectives. Welcome to our love issue.
