MARIECLAIRE.COM WINNERS’ CIRCLE Toast the champions of our Changing The World contest

Last May, we asked you to submit one-minute videos telling us how you were changing the world. We were so inspired by your submissions, and posted our favorites online this summer, with videos created by our friends at Makers. After one week of heated voting, we declared a tie between Alexa Pham of Chai Lai Orchid and Emily Raleigh of the Smart Girls Group. Go to marieclaire.com/meetourwinners for their extended interviews.

“Before I started Chai Lai Orchid, I was a typical New Yorker. I worked multiple jobs, I had a shoe collection—with some really amazing pairs—running water, and electricity,” says Alexa Pham, 31. But she traded it all after witnessing the sex trade at work in Thailand. Pham realized that without sustainable financial opportunities, vulnerable women wouldn’t have a fighting chance. So instead of a traditional aid program, she started a

resort with major heart. “At the Chai Lai Orchid, we provide job training, income, and a safe home to ethnic minority women and refugees from Burma/ Myanmar because they are the most at risk of trafficking and exploitation,” Pham explains. The resort employs women and shelters their families, who in turn have access to resources like community development programs and a library full of women’s rights texts. “At Chai Lai, women are not ‘victims’ of trafficking or poverty,” Pham proudly states. “They are empowered agents of change.”

THE SMART GIRLS GROUP thesmartgirlsgroup.com

“When I was a senior and my sister was a freshman, I wrote her a field guide to succeeding in our high school,” recalls Emily Raleigh, 20. “But when it was done, I felt kind of empty. I wanted to turn it into something more.” So she created Smart Girl’s Guide, a digital magazine for ambitious, career-minded young women. The issue was a hit, and other girls clamored to get involved. “Our staff grew from nine people to over 100 in three months,” she says. “All of a sudden, I was on my lunch

period trying to figure out how to make this a scalable business.” As the sisterhood grew (it now boasts more than 1,000 members in 44 countries), the Smart Girls Group expanded into a professional network with online classes, campus chapters, and conferences for young women who might one day, say, join Sallie Krawcheck’s Ellevate. Joining SGG is free (“We don’t believe in paying for empowerment,” Raleigh says), and immediate goals include creating a scholarship fund. When the now Fordham University junior graduates, Raleigh plans to turn her high school passion into a full-time job. Sounds pretty smart to us.

FRESH STARTS EDITOR’S NOTE

EV ERY B ODY HAS T O start somewhere. For “The Miracle Workers” (p. 134), we photographed the key aides to some of Hollywood’s biggest players. And while there is both glamour and grunt work involved (probably more of the latter) in these jobs, I can attest to the importance and sometimes invaluable experience of paying one’s dues. As assistant to the author, editor, and New York character George Plimpton at his magazine The Paris Review in my 20s, I answered phones, chopped carrots for his co*cktail parties, and helped him research a book. Step by step, I learned to become an editor (and picked up a few secrets to throwing a great party). Will every task required of a junior employee lead to better and brighter things? Not necessarily. But even at the bottom, there are things worth paying attention to. At the very least, how you’re treated will teach you how you want—or don’t want—to act toward anyone working for you someday. In fashion, the development of young talent is paramount. As I write, our editors are in the midst of Fashion Month, traveling the world in

search of exciting ideas and new designers. We bring you some of our favorite looks from the resort collections in “Personal Effects” (p. 198), which is all about individualism and quirky plays on tradition, like eyelet lace, polka dots, and denim. It’s election time—another season to celebrate the power of the individual—and our News Feed section (starting on p. 149) features a Q&A with a former campaign operative, a guide to crucial issues being decided on November 4, and the founder of an organization that trains women to be tomorrow’s political leaders. Because wherever your starting point, learning to walk is crucial in order to run.

LEA GOLDMAN @lea

As the editor of MC @Work and this month’s “The New Guard” (p. 111), New Yorker Goldman knows alpha women. She explores their relationship struggles in “Till Careers Do Us Part” (p. 210). “There’s so much discussion these days about women ‘having it all,’ but how can you achieve anything close to that without a partner who not only talks the talk but also walks the walk?” Style icon: Daria. Favorite snack: Movie theater popcorn.

In “I Am Not a Foodie” (p. 160), an adaptation from her book The Unspeakable: And Other Subjects of Discussion (Farrar, Straus and Giroux), Daum explains why she rejects the scene. “I appreciate good food, but I also appreciate bad food,” says the L.A.-based writer. “There’s maybe nothing I love more than frosting straight out of the can.” Listening to: My dog snoring. Reading now: The Moral Landscape by Sam Harris.

AGE:

42. HOMETOWN: San Diego. CURRENT RESIDENCES: Los Angeles and New York City. SHE WORE: Diaz arrived wearing blue Element jeans, a gray Alexander Wang sweater, and nude Rag & Bone sandals. TRACK LIST: The actress (romantically linked to rocker Benji Madden) played alternative staples like The Black Keys’ “Howlin’ for You” and Cage The Elephant’s “Aberdeen.” GREAT TASTE: The Body Book may have established Diaz as a clean-living guru, but for lunch, she skipped more wholesome options for rotisserie chicken and focaccia from New York’s The Smile. “One little piece never hurt anybody,” she said, encouraging Marie Claire’s team to dig in with her. —Marisa Carroll

COURTESY OF THE DESIGNER

AT F IRS T GLANCE, John Hardy’s 190,000-plus-square-foot compound in Mambal, Bali, looks more like a lush retreat than a jewelry house headquarters. But inside the quasi-village, local artisans have been crafting pieces by hand—some that take months to finish—from reclaimed silver for a decade. “What sets us apart is that we are authentic in the way we are creating things, in the way that we work, and with our attention to the environment,” says Guy Bedarida, head designer and creative director since 1999. Bamboo structures with mud walls and strawthatched roofs used as workshops were constructed so that if the company were to move, they could be easily dismantled and farming could resume almost overnight. The company has also planted enough bamboo trees to fill New York City’s Central Park four and a half times over through its Wear Bamboo, Plant Bamboo program. (Since the collection’s launch in 1992, 900,000 seedlings have been planted.) When it came time to choose the face of its fall 2014 collection, model Cara Delevingne was the go-to. “She’s absolutely natural,” says Bedarida, “just like the brand.” —Michelle Guerrere

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY Cheers to Marie Claire France, celebrating six decades of championing women. From fashion and beauty, to successful careers and social causes, to rights and revolutions—if it matters to women, it’s in Marie Claire! FRANCE 1965

FRANCE 1981

An article on abortion underscored MC’s advocacy of women making decisions for themselves.

MC went to Nigeria to cover the kidnapping of hundreds of schoolgirls by militant group Boko Haram.

FRANCE 1954

Created by Jean Prouvost as a weekly in 1937, MC launched as a monthly and now has 33 international editions.

NINA’S NOTES: As cooler weather kicks in, so does the inevitable wardrobe rut of heavy knits devoid of color and print. Since the resort trends—pastel accessories, peppy polka dots, and primary-hued candy stripes—are anything but, why not use them as inspiration when getting dressed this fall? Even though spring is more than a few months away (sigh), there’s no reason to put the elements that make fashion fun and fresh on hold. Tell me how you’re lightening up this season @NinaGarcia.

TH E FIRS T PANT HER- M OT I F Cartier piece was created in 1914: a wristwatch paved with diamonds (a predecessor to Art Deco style) and onyx that signaled the beginnings of the jewelry house’s iconic symbol. The tale continued with Jeanne Toussaint, who became Cartier’s director of high jewelry in 1933—“a fighter in a world of men,” says Pierre Rainero, the brand’s director of image, style, and heritage. Nicknamed La Panthère by Louis Cartier, Toussaint oversaw the creation of the first 3-D panther pieces that would go on to be favored by style setters like the duch*ess of Windsor and Princess Nina Aga Khan. Now, the house has introduced a 50-plus piece line to mark the 100th anniversary of that first big feline. The diamonds and onyx reappear, along with gold, emeralds, citrine, and more. You may have spotted them on the likes of Angelina Jolie or Beyoncé, proving that, for the chicest women, a panther still roars. —Florence Kane

JEWELRY CRUSH

Pomellato takes you oceans away with its new Capri collection HOW M ANY SHAD ES of blue can be found in the sparkling waters off Capri? Countless, no doubt. Milan-based

jewelry company Pomellato, though, has captured some of the most beautiful with its collection named after the Mediterranean isle. The shallower aquamarine depths translate into chrysoprase stones, for example; and the latest additions to the line—turquoise and lapis lazuli—represent the sun-dappled sea and the singular hues found inside Capri’s famed cave, the Blue Grotto. Who wouldn’t want to dive right in? —Florence Kane 80 M A R IE C L AIR E .C OM November 2014

MARY KATRANTZOU DESIGNER DOSSIER

1

ONE THING YOU’D BE surprised to learn about Greek-born, London-based designer Mary Katrantzou—known for her vibrant colors and photo-real prints—is that she grew up wearing a wardrobe that was anything but that. “When I was around 14 or 15, I started wearing only black—black Converse, black jeans, and a black T-shirt,” she says. The 31-year-old’s personal style and mostly white apartment let her imagination run free to create the memorable trompe l’oeil patterns from ordinary objects like shoes (spring 2014), stamps (spring 2013), and perfume bottles (fall 2009) that she’s shown on the runways since establishing her namesake label five years ago. For her second resort collection, the Central Saint Martins grad focused on calligraphy and typography. “We started looking at Milton Glaser typography and the adornment of the letters in manuscripts like The Book of Kells,” she says. From there, she whipped up tulle dresses flocked with glitter and metallic jacquard suiting embossed with graphic letters and symbols in colors inspired by the movie Fantasia. To go with these pieces, Katrantzou introduced a line of clutches that collectively spell out her name—the next step toward building a lifestyle brand. “The idea is to influence a woman’s wardrobe in as many ways as possible,” she says. With the debut of her first costumes for the New York City Ballet in September, a collection for Adidas set to launch later this month (she’s also worked with brands like Current/Elliott and Moncler in the past), and an ongoing collaboration with Gianvito Rossi, we’d say she’s doing just that. —Jessica Minkoff

Shelby has such an interesting story — she is a professional ballerina — not to mention she’s incredibly gorgeous. The dress was inspired by her dance background with asymmetrical layered pleating to give it movement. With the jacket, I decided to pull in bright blue leather for a pop of color. The Mary Kay team created a makeup look specifically to enhance her beauty, keeping it high fashion and interesting without being overwhelming. – Korina Emmerich

CENTER OF ATTENTION

I have slim legs and arms, but I am self-conscious of my midsection. What silhouettes work best on someone with my shape? —Charlotte, Detroit

La Petite Anglais blogger Ella Catliff in Paris.

PRINTED MATTER

GUNN LAWS

Street style, Paris.

—Samantha, Austin, Texas

The key element to mastering print-onprint is scale. Lay the items that you’re considering mixing on your bed to form a head-to-toe look. Now, squint your eyes. If the items blend together, the scale is too similar. You want each pattern and print to remain distinct from the other. The Breton-stripe shirt is a time-honored classic that goes well with florals, paisleys, bold ginghams, and graphic chalk stripes. One caution: Do not mix the Breton stripe with other horizontal patterns. With experimentation and time, you’ll be a mix-it-up expert.

SPORTS AUTHORITY

Athletic wear seems to be making a major impact on the runway and the streets. How can I incorporate it into my daily look without looking like I just went to the gym? —Natasha, New York City

1

The best aspect of athletic wear, in my opinion, is the textiles—hi-tech fabrics with stretch and resilience. If you’re going to embrace this trend, ask yourself whether the items you’re considering wearing have a legitimate life outside of a sports facility. If they pass this test, then by all means, dress everything down—flats, subtle jewelry, fresh face, and simple grooming.

TIM GUNN, Project Runway mentor and fashion guru, solves your style conundrums

Fashion stylist Pernille Teisbaek in London.

In spite of slimming regimens and working out, most women are self-conscious about their midsection. While shapewear can be helpful, many women eschew it for reasons of comfort. My advice is to make pants your go-to. If your waist is wider than your hips, opt for a low-rise style. Balance it out with a top that cascades from your shoulders and hides the waistband without being too long. If you prefer skirts, try the opposite: highwaisted with a tucked-in top. With both pants and skirts, avoid pleats and flares.

B OY S ’ CLUB A

VANIT Y SHINGLE, for the

uninitiated, is a production company overseen by a famous actor that gives a studio first dibs on whatever crazy ideas he or she happens to conjure up en route to the gym or day spa. It’s a venerable Hollywood status symbol—right up there with an infinity pool or a signature fragrance—and an easy way for a studio to keep a prized talent content and engaged. Which is why the announcement last year that Rashida Jones—the lovely, unassuming, eminently sensible actress best known for playing lovely, unassuming, eminently sensible characters on The Office and Parks and Recreation—had signed an agreement with Warner Bros. to develop television comedies and dramas was met with the industry equivalent of a gentle pat on the head. The trades dutifully made note of the deal, and everyone promptly moved on.

Only this was no vanity project. Jones, 38, and her partner and best friend, Will McCormack, had already cowritten the smart 2012 indie anti-romance Celeste & Jesse Forever, starring Jones, and Warner Bros. saw real potential. Together, the pair founded their own production outfit, dubbed Le Train Train (slang for “the daily grind” in French), which is currently in the midst of a major Hollywood hot streak. Of the nine programs they’ve pitched to networks so far, all have been snapped up for further development. True, only a precious few may make it past the pilot stage, but the frenzy of sales represents an unheard-of batting average for a fledgling company. On October 2, their first series, the rom-com A to Z, premiered on NBC in a cherished Thursday-night time slot. They’ve got two more shows with solid chances of debuting early next year. Jones is characteristically modest about the feat. “We’ve been really, really lucky,” she

The NEW GUARD says. “We have a show on the air, and that’s insane. It never happens. I think we surpassed expectations, which now, of course, makes our job a little bit harder.” In a town crowded with overprivileged scions, Jones is exceedingly mindful about surpassing expectations. Her mother is Mod Squad actress Peggy Lipton; her father is legendary producer and composer Quincy Jones, who also executive-produced The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Jones attended the elite Buckley School in Sherman Oaks, California—her schoolmates included Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton, and Nicole Richie—where she stood out for her academic diligence and participation. “I was in every activity,” she recalls. “I got really good grades; I was a mathlete. I wouldn’t say I have mastery in any one thing, but I’m pretty good at a bunch of stuff.”

Later, while attending Harvard, she fell into a depression and turned to the performing arts for relief, writing for the college’s musical comedy club, Hasty Pudding Theatricals, and appearing in a production of For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide/ When the Rainbow Is Enuf. After that, she was hooked. Her success was hardly a sure thing. “I wanted to be noticed, I wanted to be respected, and I felt jealous when other people had the opportunity,” Jones confesses. “But I’m so happy that it took so long for anybody to really give me a long-term job, because it made me appreciate what it’s like to be an out-ofwork actor.” It also imbued in her an interest in exerting more control over her career. “As an actor, you’re kind of at the bottom

of the pile. You rely on everybody else to allow you to do what you do.” That’s why, though she stars in the title role of Steve Carell’s police satire Angie Tribeca, which premieres on TBS early next year, she’s wary about relying on acting as her primary source of income. “The business is tough on women,” she says. “I don’t want to think of the way I look as some commodity that’s slipping away.” The sentiment is, perhaps, a more diplomatic reproach of her industry—and celebrities who exploit their sex appeal to get ahead—than the comments she made last year on Twitter, when she called out certain unnamed pop icons for basically letting it all hang out: “This week’s celeb news takeaway: she who comes closest to showing the actual inside of her vagin* is most popular,” she wrote, tacking on the hashtag: #stopactinglikewhor*s. The backlash was intense. Jones was accused of sanctimony and “slu*t shaming.” But she remains unrepentant. “Let it be said: I believe in a woman’s right to express her sexuality … but are you really being empowered by your sexuality, or do you just want to be liked, and is it just an easy way to get attention?” she asks. When it’s pointed out that former schoolmates like Kardashian owe their celebrity in part to sex tapes, she insists she doesn’t blame them for it. “It’s not their fault that they’re famous because of it,” she says. “My problem is putting them in the same category with anybody who has worked their asses off to cultivate their talent. It just makes me sad. Why are we so obsessed with socialites and girls who are amateur sex-tape stars? Can we also be obsessed with women who have changed the world and are really, really smart?” Jones’ goal is to inject more nuanced portrayals of women into the zeitgeist. Like her charming NBC series A to Z, a deftly plotted chronicle of a blossoming love affair between Cristin Milioti (How I Met Your Mother) and Ben Feldman (Mad Men). “It’s like every woman in a movie has to be perfectly adorable, and her life is a mess … and only when a man comes in does everything really fall into place,” she says. “I think the more iterations of a woman that exist, the better. Even if they’re bad, if they’re good, if it’s ugly, if it’s messy—it just is better for everyone to see all of it.” —Aaron Gell Jacket, $1,095, dress, $575, Band of Outsiders; shoes, $750, Giuseppe Zanotti Design.

ERE’S A SECRET trail-

blazers don’t often share: Breaking barriers usually requires bending a few rules. Just ask 35-year-old stand-up comic Cristela Alonzo, who scored her own eponymous sitcom on ABC even after the network initially declined to shoot the script it had commissioned based on her life as a firstgeneration Mexican-American. Alonzo took the kill fee they paid her and proceeded anyway, shooting a bare-bones episode on the set of Tim Allen’s ABC sitcom Last Man Standing, executiveproduced by Becky Clements, who’s also a big fan of Alonzo. “I was an unknown name; I knew the odds were against me,” Alonzo recalls. “We went a little rogue.” Alonzo and Clements presented the video about a Mexican-American law

student and her traditional family to ABC brass, who were so impressed that they reversed course and green-lit the series. Clements, now an executive producer of Cristela, compares the program to The Cosby Show and Roseanne. “Those shows had very specific winning people at the center of them. And I just recognized that in her,” she says of Alonzo. Alonzo’s star turn on a prime-time network sitcom is a very big deal. Except for Ugly Betty’s America Ferrera and The CW’s recently debuted Jane The Virgin, adapted from a Venezuelan telenovela, Latinas—even superstars like Sofia Vergara and Eva Longoria—have largely been relegated to ensemble roles. Alonzo is keenly aware of what that means. “I always feel like I give a face to a group that [audiences] are not familiar with. And when they get that face and they like me, it’s easier for them to get everything, get the culture a little bit better,” she says. The youngest of four children—her mother left an abusive husband while

pregnant with Cristela—Alonzo grew up in the Texas-border town of San Juan. “My mother ended up finding this abandoned diner where she moved and had me. The first seven, eight years of my life, my family lived as squatters in that diner,” says Alonzo. “As a kid, I really wanted to have my own show. But when you grow up in poverty, people tell you nothing is possible. So I kind of gave up on that dream.” Alonzo eventually answered a want ad for an office manager at a Dallas comedy club. Brassy and quick with a joke, she soon found herself onstage, where the laughs came easily. She’d found her calling. A little over a year later, at age 24, she moved to Los Angeles, where she scraped by touring and honing her material. But the longer she spent on the road, the more profane her material became. By 2008, she realized she’d strayed far outside her comfort zone. “I grew up in a very Catholic household,” she explains. “We were pretty conservative. I found myself doing raunchier jokes than I wanted to do.” For a year and a half, she cleaned up her act. Her more mainstream material helped land her a spot on Conan, and development deals soon followed. While early reviews for Cristela have been mixed, critics have praised Alonzo. (“Could not be more lovable,” gushed a reviewer for E! Entertainment.) And though current trend favors edgier, singlecamera shows these days—like Veep and The Mindy Project, for example—Alonzo is adamant that a traditional network multi-camera sitcom, with its studio audiences and laugh tracks, is the ideal way to capture her message. “I want this show to be seen by everybody,” she says of Cristela. “I can’t tell a story about a working-class family on a premium channel that you have to pay to get.” She learned the hard way that authenticity is a prerequisite for success: “Regardless of whether [the show] fails or succeeds, I have to do it my way.” —Karen Schwartz

JENNIFER LEE

SCREENWRITER AND CODIRECTOR OF DISNEY’S FROZEN

C

OULD ANY contemporary film better epitomize the term “crossover hit” than Disney’s Frozen? This year’s Oscar-winning juggernaut about a Snow Queen and her puckish sister has to date raked in $1.2 billion at the box office, becoming the highest-grossing animated film in history. For Jennifer Lee, its effervescent 43-year-old writer and codirector (and the first woman to helm a Disney animated studio feature), the film served as a catapult into the elite club of überdirectors—Steven Spielberg and George Lucas among them—who have presided over billion-dollar films. Lee, who directed Frozen along with Chris Buck, is among a new breed of film influentials taking their cues from television, where showrunners frequently assume the role of lead writer. “You can’t just do a straightforward story anymore,” she explains about the process of scripting a movie. “People get bored. You have to add layers to it. It has to be evocative. I think that creates a need for a very strong relationship between the writing and the directing, like in TV.” Born and raised in Rhode Island, Lee graduated with an English degree from the University of New Hampshire, then headed to New York, where she found work designing audiobook and DVD covers. “I was definitely one of those liberal-arts kids who didn’t know what I wanted to do,” she says. “It literally took me until I was 28 to realize I should do films.” After she graduated from Columbia University’s film school, former classmate Phil Johnston asked her to work with him on the script for Wreck-It Ralph. It was her work on that animated film that Sweater, $1,345, Christopher Kane; jeans, $274, Citizens of Humanity; bracelet, $2,200, David Yurman; glasses, Lee’s own.

convinced Buck to give her the longgestating Frozen to help rewrite. Lee’s contributions were significant. She and Buck recast the script, originally pitched as a conventional battle of good vs. evil (Elsa was portrayed as a villain), to instead reflect a struggle between fear and love. “It was like, Can’t we do something a little more dynamic and three-dimensional?” Lee recalls. “We said, What would it feel like to be her? What would it feel like to finally be free, but have the weight of the world on her?” Soon after turning in the script, Lee was named director, alongside Buck. Lee says the new title gave her more freedom to shape the look of the film. “I was nervous about learning animation production,” she concedes. “I didn’t go to school for it. But it was actually far more

organic than I thought. I was the one in the room who knew exactly what was going on in the characters’ heads.” Next up for Lee: the spring release of a Frozen short, as well as a screenplay for a live-action adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s 1962 classic, A Wrinkle in Time. “It’s such a hard book to do, which is why it has taken 30 years,” she says. “I’m terrified and excited.” As for her pioneering first-womandirector status, Lee sees it as a harbinger of bigger changes. “I’m surrounded by women,” she explains. “On Wreck-It Ralph, half the story crew was women. On Frozen, some of our lead animators were women. Hopefully animation will lead the industry. See! Female directors— they do well!” —K.S.

FROZEN CATAPULTED LEE INTO THE ELITE CLUB OF ÜBERDIRECTORS—STEVEN SPIELBERG AND GEORGE LUCAS AMONG THEM—WHO HAVE PRESIDED OVER BILLION-DOLLAR FILMS. Lee helped overhaul the script to Frozen, which had originally cast Elsa as a conventional villain.

As the vice president of Sheila Donnelly & Associates, a marketing and public relations firm headquartered in Honolulu and New York City, Parool K. Shah, 44, is the globe-trotting media liaison for clients such as Taj Hotels, Resorts and Palaces, and Four Seasons Resorts. “I’ve become a master packer,” says Shah, who recently fit everything for a weeklong business trip to China in a carry-on.

be outdoors, I use Shiseido Urban Environment Tinted UV Protector. I go very neutral on my mouth with Laura Mercier Sheer Lip Colour in Baby Lips (6), a translucent warm pink. And I will only ever wear L’Oréal Paris Voluminous Mascara (8)—it’s my drugstore jewel.

2/My hair is thick and naturally curly, so I only wash it every three days with Briogeo Be Gentle, Be Kind Co-Wash (2) with avocado and quinoa. I typically blowdry and flat-iron my hair, so I use our new Rosarco Oil (4) — a blend of rose hip, argan, and coconut oils—to protect my hair from the heat. Since it’s silicone-free and absorbs well, I often use it as a body oil, too.

4/In my purse, gym bag, or carry-on, I stash a small tin of Nivea Creme, Neutrogena Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes, and Lancôme Dual Finish Versatile Powder and Foundation in Matte Honey (1). I’ve been in love with this powder since I was 18 because it is the perfect hue for my complexion.

NECESSARY INDULGENCES Frequent f lier’s hair habit:

I moved from L.A. to D.C. two years ago, but I often travel back for work, so I still visit Blush Salon in Beverly Hills to get a cut, highlights, and a keratin treatment twice a year.

Original scents:

My signature perfume is a bespoke fragrance with fig and green, grassy notes that I created at the Fueguia 1833 boutique in Buenos Aires. I scent my home with the Archipelago Botanicals candle in Havana (4); it has a sweet, tobacco-like aroma.

Evening skincare:

At night I apply Obagi-C Rx System C-Clarifying Serum and SkinCeuticals A.G.E. Eye Complex. I also have a huge jar of La Prairie Cellular Radiance Cream (2) . Anytime exercise: I use the 7 Minute Workout app and do push-ups and squats in my hotel room.

THE ORGANIC BEAUTY ENTREPRENEUR

1/Creating structure in your day is really important when you work for yourself, so I hired a personal trainer that I meet with three mornings a week at 7 a.m. It forces me to get my day started, show up, and work out. Coffee makes me jittery, but I think green tea is an antiaging wonder beverage. Every morning, I brew a pot of matcha-blend green tea with two Kirkland Signature Ito En tea bags and pour it in a large mason jar to sip

NECESSARY INDULGENCES DIY facial:

I like to whip up a face mask with fresh avocado, aloe vera gel, and coconut or almond oil. It’s so good to get those hydrators and nutrients straight from the source, with no chemicals added. My mother used to use lemon for brightening and evening out the skin, so I squeeze lemon juice in there as well.

Pared-down P.M. routine:

By the time I go to bed, I’m so exhausted that all I do is clean my face with Yes to Blueberries Cleansing Facial Wipes and then put on 100% Pure Super Fruits Reparative Cream.

Essential oils:

My body wash, Sabon Shower Oil in Rose Tea (previous page, 3) , is so silky that I usually don’t need moisturizer afterward. I use Olìe Biologique Argan Oil (previous page, 5) on my face, and keep a travelsize version in my purse to refresh my skin. 142 M A R IE C L AIR E .C OM November 2014

1/I grind my own Counter Culture Coffee beans and do a French press every morning. Then I read the news online and do some paperwork. I bike to Union Kitchen, a shared kitchen; the ride is a relaxing way to get ready for my 10-hour day of baking.

2/I spray on a little Bumble and Bumble Curl Conscious Reactivating Mist (5) to refresh my curls and twist my hair up into cute little buns because I can’t wear it down in the kitchen. That’s all I need to do, because I rinse my hair the

night before and do what’s called “plopping”: I run curl cream through my hair, plop it all on top of my head, and wrap it in a DevaCurl microfiber towel for a few minutes. I go to bed with my hair slightly damp.

3/I like my makeup

simple: BareMinerals Mineral Veil and Blush (2), and Burt’s Bees Lip Balm with Pomegranate Oil (4) . And I wear CoverGirl Exact Eyelights Eye-Brightening Mascara (3) and Almay Intense i-Color Liner in Mocha (7).

NECESSARY INDULGENCES Favorite fragrance:

I use Woods of Windsor Lily of the Valley perfume and lotion (6). If I’m in the kitchen and don’t have it, I’ll dab on a little vanilla extract (8).

Best foot forward:

I’m on my feet up to 12 hours a day. Sometimes I come home and soak them and exfoliate with Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Scrub (1), then slather on lotion. I also have my toes painted a bright color that cheers me up before I put on my baking clogs.

NOV 2014

EVEN THE FIERIEST of debates on ABC’s The View may be no sweat for newly named cohost Nicolle Wallace, who has spent significant portions of her professional life on the front lines of politics. From serving as communications director for President George W. Bush both in the White House and for his 2004 reelection campaign, to her role as senior adviser (and Sarah Palin wrangler) for the 2008 John McCain presidential campaign—Wallace has seen it all. Here, she gives an inside look at what the campaign trail is really like. MARIE CLAIRE: How will your political experience help you on The View? NICOLLE WALLACE: I’m sure when we get a

chance to talk about politics it will be lively. But the thing I really learned from doing presidential campaigns is that your enemy is not the person on the other side of the political spectrum. They are people who care just as much as I do. They just came to a different conclusion. MC: What do you deal with on a campaign that the public never sees? NW: Things go wrong all the time.

MC: How closely do shows like Scandal and House of Cards mirror what really goes on in politics? NW: All of those shows do a great job of

capturing the most dramatic moments, but none of them give much airtime to the mundane. And the reality of a career in politics is while there’s plenty of drama, the people who work on campaigns have extremely unglamorous jobs. There’s a lot of checking in to hotels where you don’t want to sleep on the sheets, eating food that you can’t believe you are swallowing, and getting on a bus for the eleventh time in three days.

MC: You’ve written two novels about the first female president. Is that something you hope for? NW: I became obsessed with the idea

of female leadership after watching Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin in 2008. I don’t think Hillary and Sarah have much in common, but one thing they did have in common is that they were both made to suffer indignities because of their gender. It was jarring and shocking to watch both women endure scrutiny for things like their clothes, their appearance, and their personality traits. Nevertheless, the prospect of a female president still excites me, and I certainly think it’s possible. I feel like voters have to ask themselves, How can a woman do any worse than the men in Washington right now?

UNITED STATES

THE RIGHTS DIRECTION Can you believe there’s no law protecting equal rights for women? (Yeah, we couldn’t believe it, either)

ACTRESS AND ACTIVIST Kamala Lopez had had enough of what she calls the “open season on women”—you know, the slashing of reproductive rights, the refusal to pass equal pay legislation, repeated reports of rape and domestic violence with little punishment, and so on. She asked herself, What the hell is going on here? Why is it OK to treat half the human race like this? Then Lopez found what she thinks may be partly to blame: The U.S. constitution does not guarantee equal rights for women. Since 1923, activists have been trying to pass the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), which states that “equality of rights under the law shall not be denied or abridged … on account of sex.” If passed, the ERA would buttress the rights of women and provide legal defense on infringements of those rights. Thankfully, the push to pass the ERA has been renewed. The last time it stood a real

shot—after Congress passed the bill in 1972—it fell just three states short of the 38 needed for ratification, so advocates are now lobbying the holdout states. Illinois may ratify the ERA this month. Meanwhile, in Congress, Representative Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) and Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ) have introduced bills. To support the cause, Lopez raised $137,000 on Kickstarter to make a film, called Equal Means Equal, out this fall, and set out on a cross-country trip to raise awareness for the ERA and interview nearly 100 women—including Gloria Steinem and Sarah Silverman—about women’s current status in society. “I’m hoping to provide a snapshot of what it is to be a woman in America,” Lopez says. “I don’t think the reality is anything close to what people think.” —Caroline Dobuzinskis

Turning women into winners

HER INSPIRATION: Erin Vilardi got her first taste of politics at age 12 when she petitioned her middle school in Lacey Township, New Jersey, to remove a sexist sign. From then on, she was convinced: If women ran the world, the world would be better run.

BATTLEGROUND BALLOTS 2014 is the year of the single ladies. Candidates are doing everything they can to court unmarried women in the November 4 midterm elections, and political analysts say women in particular have the power to decide who controls the Senate. Here are some of the states where women have the most to win or lose TEXAS

PENNSYLVANIA

Many of the state’s 40 abortion clinics have closed since a restrictive law passed last year. Democratic gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis supports efforts to invalidate the law, while her Republican opponent, Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott, is fighting to protect it.

The state legislature is considering a bill that would require doctors who perform abortions to have admitting privileges at a nearby hospital. If Republican Governor Tom Corbett loses, his Democratic competitor, Tom Wolf, promises not to sign the legislation.

NORTH CAROLINA

NEW HAMPSHIRE

Planned Parenthood is spending $3 million to back Democratic Senator Kay Hagan. Her opponent, GOPer Thom Tillis, supports eliminating health insurance coverage for abortion for public employees.

Senator Jeanne Shaheen pushed Congress to pass the Paycheck Fairness Act, which aims to equalize pay for women nationwide. The bill was blocked by Senate Republicans, including Shaheen’s opponent, former Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown.

OHIO

The state has chosen not to expand Medicaid, which would provide health insurance to hundreds of thousands of lowincome women. The Democratic candidate for governor supports the expansion.

MAINE Republican Governor Paul LePage vetoed a bill that would have provided funding for birth control and STD testing and treatment. Democratic challenger Mike Michaud says he supports the legislation.

HER IDEA: In September, Vilardi, now 33, launched VoteRunLead.org to foster a nonpartisan community of women who want to run for office. Members sign up for free online training on raising funds, organizing volunteers, campaigning, and public speaking. “It’s OK if you aren’t ready to run just yet,” Vilardi says. “Take the first step and connect with women just like you.” RESULTS: Though the site just launched, VoteRunLead’s in-person programs have already trained 15,000 women. Many are now sitting in state legislatures, city councils, boards, and commissions. One member, Kelly Westlund, a Democrat from Wisconsin, is even running for Congress. Look out, old boys’ club!

FRENEMIES BOOKS

By STEPH OPITZ MARIE CLAIRE: Where did this story come from? LINDSAY HUNTER: I wanted to write a fairy tale with a female protagonist. And I wanted it to be a badass, no-holds-barred story. I wanted unlikable characters. Baby Girl is ugly on the outside, Perry is pretty on the outside, but they’re varying shades of ugly on the inside. It’s a teenage female friendship in all its guts and glory. It’s about trying to find out who you are in relation to the people you’re close to. Sometimes that can mean you’re using that person, maybe not even consciously.

ALL MY PUNY SORROWS by Miriam Toews (McSweeney’s)

Yoli’s older, once-perfectseeming sister, Elf, is in a psychiatric ward battling suicidal tendencies while Yoli struggles with a divorce and failed sexcapades. Toews’ tale of the love-hate relationship between two Canadian Mennonite sisters is touching and unexpectedly humorous.

MERMAIDS IN PARADISE by Lydia Millet (W.W. Norton)

During a honeymoon scuba dive in the Virgin Islands, Deb and Chip stumble upon a group of mermaids. All hell breaks loose as reporters, thugs, and religious fanatics flock, and a protector of the “Mer” mysteriously dies, in this hilarious satire.

MC: You have a flash-fiction background. Was it tough to write long? LH: I took a month off work, and each day I gave myself a goal of 2,000 to 2,500 words. I treated each day as a flash-fiction piece. I was really worried about it staying interesting to me while I wrote; if you’re having fun writing it, then people will have fun reading it! MC: Your characters spend a lot of time on Facebook. Did you set out to write fiction that engages with the Internet? LH: I don’t think I’ve ever used the word Facebook [in writing] before. And I can feel myself balking at it because it does date the book. The book is largely about the identity that you create. I liked the Facebook aspect of that: People I know personally have really happy posts, but their real lives are chaos, or really sad. It’s almost like a game, where you can up your lifestyle or happiness points. It’s something you have complete control over, where in your real life, you don’t. @lindsaydevon

My assistant, after a few days of working with her, said, “Keira is so normal! She’s more normal than most normal people!” I think one of the reasons she said yes to the role was that she really identified with Megan, so I didn’t have to do anything.

WHAT WE’RE WATCHING

young men in their 20s lost and trying to figure out what to do with their lives and feeling a little bit at sea—was seeing The Graduate. The women are always in the role of the very impatient toe-tapping girlfriends or fiancées. When I read Andrea Seigel’s script for Laggies, there was a character I hadn’t really seen on-screen. There’s clearly some kind of zeitgeist in which women are allowed to be portrayed this way. I’ve heard from tons of women who relate to Megan, because it’s a real thing. MC: What were you like in your 20s? LS: When I was 12 or 13, I was exploding

creatively, writing and thinking. By the time I was in my early 20s, I was basically only acting— because I could just be a mouthpiece for other people’s words. A lot of it has to do with the way I was socially conditioned. It makes me so happy to see Lena Dunham in the world, and to see younger women not wait as long as I did to gain the confidence and clarity of vision, the sense of “I have something to say.” It thrills me to no end. MC: When did you start to feel like a real adult? LS: I still have moments of questioning that.

Sometimes I look at myself in the mirror and think, One of these days, I’m going to dress like a lady. I just bought a new house. I have these moments when I’m getting ice out of the ice-making part of the fridge and I think, This is somebody else’s life. I’m faking somebody else’s life. @lynnsheltonfilm

I AM NOT A FOODIE In a gastronomic world of foam, foraging, and farro, MEGHAN DAUM is just fine with Fritos

ABOVE: The writer says she doesn’t buy into the elevated culinary scene.

I HATE FOOD. Not that I don’t consume it. I just hate shopping for it, preparing it, serving it, and cleaning it up and putting it away, though I would take cleaning up over cooking any day. My approach to cooking is not unlike the approach many people take when confronted with their least favorite exercise in a fitness class: I fake my way through it, hope no one’s watching, and wait for it to be over. Since I almost never read recipes all the way through before getting started, any prep work I deign to undertake is inadequate at best. I leave out ingredients. I botch the timing in countless ways. I forgo measuring spoons, ignore burner settings, and choose pans based not on their suitability to the task, but on the degree of difficulty involved in extracting them from the cabinets or hoisting them onto the stove (I have absurdly weak wrists). The key to contentment is to live life to the fullest within the confines of your comfort zone. Stay in safe waters but plunge as deeply into them as possible. If you can’t cook and refuse to learn, don’t beat yourself up about it. Be the best non-cook you can be. When asked to bring a side dish to a dinner party, go to the supermarket and get the nicest prepared dish you can afford. If you’re feeling poor, get macaroni salad. If you’re feeling rich, get a balsamic roasted beet salad or butternut squash risotto from a gourmet deli and put it in an elegant ceramic serving dish. If the hostess says, “This is wonderful. Did you make it?” you can say, “I made the money to buy it” or “I made the five-mile trip from my house to the store.” Or you can lie and say you made it, though that comes with the risk of being asked for the recipe.

160 M A R IE C L AIR E .C OM November 2014

I’ve had plenty of time to learn the difference between braising vegetables and blanching them, how to make risotto or carve a turkey. That I’ve chosen not to says less about my mother’s lackluster cooking than my innate recalcitrance. That I have found myself in the prime of life in an era of Cronuts and artisanal pickles is both sadly ironic and kind of sweetly perfect. Because one of the great pleasures of trends is the option of sitting them out. Being a non-foodie in a world of heirloom tomato ketchup and chanterelle mushroom omelets means saving time and money that could be spent elsewhere—for instance, on Heinz ketchup slathered on greasy diner omelets. Being a non-foodie isn’t necessarily the same as being a picky eater. In fact, it’s the opposite: being willing to eat pretty much anything. It’s about being just as glad to dine on Lipton onion soup casserole in the southern Midwest as raw octopus in Tokyo. It means it’s not necessarily a tragedy if you die before making it to Italy (not that it wouldn’t be very sad). It means respecting food items that are too often denigrated and mocked: Miracle Whip, butter-flavored margarine, baking mixes of all kinds. My parents were not religious, but we did celebrate Christmas. And every Christmas morning, my mother served a marbled coffee cake that had somehow been dubbed “Baby Jesus’ birthday cake.” She’d make it the night before, and my brother and I would decorate it with plastic nativity figures, placing Mary and Joseph in the center to suggest a kind of holy wedding-cake topper. I’m not sure how many generations back the cake went, but the recipe my mother worked from was in my grandmother’s handwriting. Later, I worked from a recipe my mother had written out for me, though now I know it by heart. I can’t give it away, but I can tell you that it calls for white cake mix, vanilla instant pudding, and a carton of sour cream, among other ingredients available not just at your local supermarket, but probably at your local 7-Eleven, too. I can also tell you that everyone I’ve ever made it for has said it’s the best thing they’ve ever tasted.

the cheekbone, then back out the jawline. Sounds simple enough, but to step up my game, I sign up for Barnes’ seminar at his West Hollywood, California, Salon Republic studio. For $499, novices and professional makeup artists can learn Barnes’ contouring technique. His trade secret is to draw in definition before foundation, like the Italian masters and their chiaroscuro, for dramatic results. Starting with a pale concealer, Barnes highlights between the brows, down the center of the nose, underneath the eyes (up to the lower lashline), along the tops of the cheekbones, in the center of the apples of the cheeks, and on the tip of the chin. Then he adds in shadows below the cheekbones and the jawline, angling the lines slightly. “Striping sideways along the cheekbones makes the face look short,” Barnes explains. “Contouring upward gives you a little face-lift. It’s my backlash to plastic surgery.” Next, it’s time to blend. Barnes recommends using a makeup brush with a flat head, and a smaller brush for areas that require more precision, like the sides of the nose. “Blend from the side of the nose to the bridge so you don’t end up with dark stripes,” advises Barnes, who lists visible lines as the most common contouring mistake. “You never want someone to look at you and say, ‘Honey, Drag Race is to the left!’”

No safari is complete without a leopard sighting.

Body quenched, it was time for some above-the-neck assistance. The constant breeze—and maybe a few too many glasses of the local sauvignon blanc— had left my complexion parched, making every fine line more visible. So I headed to a skin clinic (here, as in Europe, women enlist dermatologists for medical situations, and spas or clinics for cosmetic assistance). An aesthetician at Skin Symphony introduced me to Environ, a line founded by Cape Town plastic surgeon Dr. Desmond Fernandes, one

sound waves and pulsed electrical currents that would help the serum penetrate. When she touched the wand to my skin, I felt a buzzing sensation and tasted something metallic. I made it about 10 minutes before I spoke up about the metal mouth. She looked at a form I had filled out beforehand. “You checked that you didn’t have fillings,” she said, and explained that they can sometimes cause a metallic taste during the treatment. Oops. (Note to self: Read medical-form questions before checking all the “no” boxes.) The facial’s final step was a pleasantly cool Alginate Mask, which dried into a rubbery cast of my face, and an application of Intensive Colostrum Gel, a soothing hydrator made from an extract of (ethically sourced) cow’s milk. A full 12 hours later, I looked in the mirror, and, no joke, I was still glowing; the lines that had been on my forehead earlier were completely gone.

RANGER PICK

The next day, my new face and I flew to MalaMala Game Reserve for the most South African experience of all: a safari. Despite the heat, we spotted the Big Five (elephant, rhinoceros, leopard, lion, buffalo) on our first game drive. On the way back to camp, bumping along in an open-top Land Rover, the ranger driving asked what had brought me to his country. When I told him I had come to learn more about its beauty secrets, I thought he was going to laugh (this was a man who could track leopards, after all). Instead, he opened his glove compartment and pulled out a tube of Environ sunscreen. “Then you’ll definitely want to try this,” he said. “It’s what all the rangers use.” Seems the country’s reputation for skincare expertise extends well beyond the city limits.

OIL IS IN ESSENTIAL & NATURAL TRUTHS REVEALED Savvy women are following beauty trendsetters’ lead, dismissing old myths and embracing essential oils—like the nine in new OLAY REGENERIST LUMINOUS FACIAL OIL— as a skincare must. Here, we reveal why. Concerned about oils & breakouts? Non-greasy Olay

Regenerist Luminous Facial Oil actually restores oily skin’s balance and PREVENTS pore congestion with apricot kernel oil.

Facial oil WON’T make combination skin oilier. Lightweight

Olay Regenerist Luminous Facial Oil absorbs immediately to prevent water loss. (And even helps reverse sun damage with antioxidant-rich tangerine oil.)

Think oil just sits on dry skin? The jojoba oil in Olay Regenerist Luminous Facial Oil is similar to our body’s natural oils. Just a few drops regulate oil production while preventing excess sebum.

MYTH: Oil-free products are better TRUTH: Essential oils fight oil by balancing skin (AND help active ingredients in other treatments absorb more deeply).

CHARLOTTE CASIRAGHI IN HER OWN WORDS

The model, equestrian, and onetime philosophy student shares what beauty means to her 1. Gucci Magnetic Color Shadow Mono in Iconic Ottanio, $37.

IS BEAUTY IN the eye of the beholder, or is it something that can be measured based on a concept of perfection, as philosophers like Plato once proposed? I’ve always thought that it’s not that interesting to judge beauty objectively, so I take a more subjective view on the matter. Growing up, I didn’t have an aesthetic ideal. Beauty was more of a concept I imagined through writing, or based on films or poems—like the work of Charles Baudelaire, who gave these sensual, mysterious descriptions of women that I found fascinating. Then, when I was 14 or 15, I saw the film Le Mépris, and the main character, Camille, had such an impact on me. Yes, she was played by Brigitte Bardot, but it wasn’t about the actress; it was more the strength of the woman that was interesting. When I had my first experience with cosmetics—and the confidence and transformation they could instill—it didn’t come from watching my mother [Princess Caroline of Hanover, the daughter of Grace Kelly] as you would expect. It was more from girls my age. I grew up in the countryside, so makeup wasn’t really a part of everyday life, but I

had this collection of nail polishes—you know, when you’re young you go crazy with 50 different colors and glitter and things— and we would all exchange them. That was how I experimented before moving on to mascara. Foundation is for when you’re more mature, and lipstick is the last thing you try. Red lips are gorgeous, but wearing them takes the confidence that comes with age. I still like to experiment. As the face of Gucci’s new cosmetics line, I got to work with makeup artist Pat McGrath on a photo shoot, and she’s taught me so much. For one photograph, she did this really spectacular purple and turquoise on the eyes, and it’s inspired me to be more daring. The colors are very strong and a bit unexpected, but that’s what I like about them. Actually, that combination of surprising colors is a good illustration of my current philosophy: When you see something beautiful, it’s not necessarily at first sight. In fact, I don’t believe in the concept of a beauty icon—it’s too limiting. There are just so many different kinds of beauties I find intriguing, even strangers I see on the street who look interesting, like someone I would like to get to know. The unexpected, the mysterious, the beauty you discover over time—that’s what’s most powerful for me. —As told to Jennifer Goldstein

It was C a m e r o n D i a z ’s idea to try something different with this story. Makes sense for someone who, after 20 years as an actress, is always game for mixing things up— like writing a best-selling book or singing as Miss Hannigan in next month’s musical film Annie. So here is a profile-as-dictionary of a life well-defined

A

Annie “It’s not very often you get to do a musical. Even though I was terrified of doing it, I kind of had to,” Cameron Diaz says of portraying orphanage matron Agatha Hannigan in Annie, the musical film opening December 19. “The two things I’m most terrified of are heights and singing in front of people. I’ve jumped out of airplanes and scaled sides of cliffs—not to get over my fears, but to address them. I just felt like this is something that needed to be addressed. I cried uncontrollably. Everybody was so supportive and having fun with it because I was so pathetic, but the only way to get through scary things is to have a sense of humor about it.” She overcame her fear and focused on her character. “In the original film from the ’80s with Carol Burnett, the concerns of women were different—all she wants is a man. I wanted to update Hannigan. She wants to be famous but is not willing to do the work. In this day and age, everybody thinks that to be famous is to be happy, [but] having love and giving love are what’s going to make you happy.”

B

Breakfast Diaz is running late for our breakfast meeting at the Maritime Hotel in New York. She arrives in a white James Perse V-neck T-shirt, Frame jeans frayed at the knees, and Rag & Bone tan ankle-strap flats, sliding into the booth with an apologetic grin. “Breakfast is totally my jam,” she says. It’s her favorite meal to cook, but she has a decidedly unconventional approach: “I like grilled meats, pastas, veggies, oatmeal—as long as you throw an egg on there, you can call it breakfast.”

C

Cuba She’s a third-generation CubanAmerican. Her great-grandfather was a cigar roller in Ybor City, Florida. Her late father, Emilio Diaz, worked at oil company Unocal in San Diego, and her mom, Billie Joann Early, was a customs-house broker. Cameron, the younger of two daughters, attended Long Beach Polytechnic High School in Long Beach, California. “I hated school. I wasn’t going to get a scholarship. My parents didn’t have the money to send me to college,” she says. Modeling was her way out. “I heard ‘money’ and ‘travel,’ and I’m thinking, I’m getting out!”

194 M A R IE C L AIR E .C OM November 2014

D

Diva As a leading lady who has played everything from action hero to romanticcomedy heroine, Diaz has generated nearly $3 billion at the box office, yet doesn’t have a whiff of diva about her. “On my first movie, people would offer to get me something to drink and I would say, ‘I’ll get it.’ But then I realized, they’re not getting me a drink because I’m special. They’re actually saying, ‘Don’t f*cking move; we’re going to need you in five minutes and you’d better be right there.’ It’s more as if they are controlling me.”

E

Empty She won’t pose for selfies with fans. “That is a moment that is empty. I prefer to talk to people. I like to have an actual human moment when I say, ‘What’s your name, so nice to meet you, thank you so much for saying hello to me.’ I will always stop and say hello to a person who wants to say hello to me. No matter what. There’s never a time when I ignore somebody.”

F

Fear In her 20s, she made decisions based on fear: of missing out, of not doing the right thing, of bad outcomes. “In my 30s, I got over that. I accepted that I can’t control anything.” And now, at 42, she says, “I tell my girlfriends who are younger than me that life doesn’t begin until you are 40. I know who I am, I know how to build a life that is more full and vibrant. You have a confidence in the things that you know. You’re not just practicing it anymore.”

G

God Diaz’s father was an atheist and her mother wasn’t religious, but they encouraged their 7-year-old daughter to research the world’s religions, driving her to a different church every week. “My father gave me the freedom to believe whatever I needed for myself,” she says. Diaz saw the similarities rather than the differences. “I came to believe there’s a higher power. I have a really strong relationship with God. It’s a huge part of my life. My spiritual practice is every day.”

H

Hair gel The movie that made her a household name was 1998’s There’s Something About Mary, and the moment that everyone remembers is her mistaking a dab of Ben Stiller’s sem*n for hair product. Instead of becoming a rom-com queen, as she could easily have done, she went a far

more eclectic path, doing indie hit Being John Malkovich, sports flick Any Given Sunday, and fantasy thriller Vanilla Sky. “I never do a project for money. I do what I think will be fun.”

I

Inattention “I remember being in first grade and my mom telling me that the teacher said that it seems as if I’m always off thinking about other things, but every time she calls on me, I have the answer. … I just can’t pay attention by focusing like this, I can’t learn by doing this and going like this. … We’re told we have ADD because we can’t sit with our feet on the ground and concentrate for eight hours out of the day with no oxygen and no food and no activity. … The whole thing is antiquated, and I didn’t thrive there. I thrived by having contact with the world, thinking on my feet—being able to hear what’s happening behind me at the same time as I’m watching something over in the corner. That’s how I absorb information. It’s not a kinetic, crazy energy; it’s just I’ll do this for a little bit, and then I have to do this for a little bit, and then I could come back to this. I hate deficit disorders. It’s not a deficit.”

J

Jobs “My parents gave me such a sense of self-confidence from giving me a lot of independence. They talked to me in the way of: Nobody else is responsible for you, pay attention, be aware, move through the world in a way that is present and conscious. They just said if you didn’t get a job, it’s not because you aren’t good enough, it’s because it’s not your job. People get the job they’re meant to get—there’s no taking something from another person. I was given a very, very strong work ethic from my parents. Your job is your responsibility; don’t leave it for somebody else to fix, even if it’s just throwing something away in the trash can.”

K

Kids “We live in a society where everyone has kids, so they want other people to have kids. There is this culture that says celebrities are supposed to be just like us, so people think, I have children, why doesn’t she? But I’m not going to do something

because it’s expected. If a family happens, then it happens. If children come to me, then I would do that, but I’m not someone who feels like she has to do something because it’s expected.”

L

LBC Diaz is fiercely proud of growing up in Long Beach, California, in the 1970s and ’80s, where she cut classes and (she’s pretty sure) bought weed from a young Snoop Dogg. “I got my street smarts from coming up in the LBC. We were hanging out by ourselves every day after school, both parents working, getting into all kinds of trouble. You learn to take care of yourself.”

M

Marriage “I’m not looking for a husband or marriage or not not looking for that stuff,” says Diaz, who is currently dating the Madden Brothers guitarist and vocalist Benji Madden. “I’m living, not thinking what I should or shouldn’t be doing with my life.”

N

Nourishment At 21, Diaz was living in Paris, “smoking two packs of cigarettes a day, eating way too much foie gras and caviar. We would buy it from the duty-free at the airport. … All day long, I would eat French fries and croque madames.” Her skin was a mess, stalling her modeling career. “I went to castings every day and never got a job.” She changed her eating habits, took acne medication, and flew to Los Angeles to audition for The Mask, her 1994 breakthrough comedy opposite thenrelatively-unknown comic Jim Carrey. “I never wanted to be an actress … I had a great time at the auditions, laughed my ass off, but I never thought I would get it.”

O

org*sm Among her most memorable scenes is from 2013’s thriller The Counselor, written by Cormac McCarthy, when her character, the deliciously predatory Malkina, brings herself to org*sm on a Ferrari windshield, giving her boyfriend, Reiner (Javier Bardem), a vision that he later describes as “hallucinatory.” “I don’t know if a woman could have an org*sm that way,” Diaz muses, “but that’s who Malkina is. She does this crazy thing to get

196 M A R IE C L AIR E .C OM November 2014

in his head, to own him. It’s not about the sex, it’s about having this power over him.” (She had a body double—“One thing I could never do was the splits.”)

P

Pubic hair In last year’s best-selling The Body Book, Diaz wrote about the science of diet, fitness, and grooming. “I wanted to share what I had learned,” Diaz explains. “I’m never going to do something just for my brand. For me, when people do that, they are a bit desperate. I get paid very well to do what I do, and I don’t need to put myself out there anymore. People would get sick of me.” The section that got the most attention was “In Praise of Pubes,” a call to arms for a generation traumatized by the Brazilian, prompting nether-region discussion from The New York Times and The Guardian, among others. “It’s not revolutionary to say, ‘Let’s have a conversation about lady parts,’ is it?”

Q

Quirk “I twirl my hair. There are many different techniques—index finger, thumb, two fingers, three fingers, all the fingers get an opportunity. I’ll do it a lot when I’m deep in thought. I’ve been doing it my whole life. If somebody has long hair, I have to go over and twirl her hair. My girlfriend Drew [Barrymore] twirls her hair as well. When we were doing Charlie’s Angels, Lucy Liu had this amazing long hair, and we would put her between us and twirl her hair constantly.”

R

Regret “I don’t live in regret. I don’t brood. I don’t look back and think I should have done this or I should have done that. Learn lessons, sure, but don’t look back and second-guess, because that’s not accepting who you are and where you are.”

S

Sports She considers herself an athlete, just not a team-sports kind of girl (though she was on the high school drill team, a dance troupe). “All the sports I do—surfing, golf, snowboarding—are more individual. I like to push myself harder that way, because making movies is such a team sport. It’s all collaboration, all day long.”

T

Toenail In 2002, she did Gangs of New York, and was struck by costar Daniel Day-Lewis’ work ethic, drive, and how he stayed in character off set. “I could never

do what Daniel Day-Lewis does. It would take all of everything that I am as a human being to even get close to a toenail clipping of what he does.”

U

Universe “I have total faith in the universe—all of the good, all of the bad, it’s meant to be. There’s always something to be learned from it.”

V

Vacation “This year, I knew, I’m not making any films,” Diaz says of her current hiatus from Hollywood. “I filmed three films last year—there is no way I’m going on a set this year. I love making movies, but I really need my life.” Still, she’ll never be not busy. She’s a brand ambassador for Tag Heuer and artistic director for accessories company Pour La Victoire, for which she’s helped launch two shoe and handbag collections and styled its fall campaign. “Even if I’m not filming, I’m always working.”

W

Worry “I’ve never worried about my career. I’m just engaged in letting things happen and showing up and doing the best job that I can.”

X

X-rated “People have seen my butt. I’ve shown the top of my butt, the bottom of my butt.” She has yet to appear fully nude, though she doesn’t rule it out. “I’m not opposed to doing nudity, as long as it’s part of the story. I’ll do whatever has to get done if it’s the right thing.”

Y Z

Yoga “I’m not a yoga person. I tried that.”

Zzzs Diaz recommends getting eight hours of sleep; she herself is known to get up at 4:30 a.m. to make the gym by 5 for an hour-long workout. “I use that discipline of the early-morning start to be present in every engagement of my day,” she explains. After breakfast, she does a quick check of her watch. “Oh, my God, I’m already a half hour late. I’m going to have to pee and get out of here.”

French actress and singer Joséphine de La Baume, 30, walks into the lobby of NYC’s Bowery Hotel, it takes me several moments to place her. Perhaps it’s because her signature red hair is blonder than usual, or because de La Baume, known for her playful approach to dressing up, is dressed down in an Everlane silk shirt and old skinny jeans cuffed above Zadig & Voltaire ankle boots. It’s only the curated mess of rings on her fingers—a delicate gold cross, a Victorian cameo, a chunky psychedelic evil eye—that reveals her trademark eclecticism. “I have one of those faces that any time I change a little thing, people don’t recognize me,” she says. “I always have my hair down. One night I had it slicked back in a little bun, and my best friend started hitting on me. I was like, “Adam! It’s me!” He was like, “Oh, my God.” Watch de La Baume onscreen, and you’ll get a sense of how that chameleon quality has served her creatively. It’s difficult to recognize the Joséphine who paraded around in sheer undies in a 2011 viral short for Agent Provocateur as the same person who saunters through a futuristic bar in her band Singtank’s music video for their recent reggae-pop single, “Can You Hear Me.” And neither of those Joséphines particularly resembles the one who shines as an embittered professor entangled with an egotistical adjunct (Jason Schwartzman) in October’s dramedy Listen Up Philip. “He’s very self-involved. We all fall for these men,” de La Baume says about her character’s tortured relationship with Schwartzman’s Philip. “I can relate. When I like someone and that person makes me feel vulnerable, I despise them in a way.” It’s a

dynamic that fortunately doesn’t reflect her real-life relationship with her husband, DJ and producer Mark Ronson. When not traveling extensively for work, the couple, along with a border collie/Lab mix named Maude (as in Harold and Maude), split their time between Paris and London. Their weekends tend to be consumed by friends’ weddings—“I cannot believe how many weddings. It’s all those kids from divorced parents who are like, ‘I need my own family!’”—and their Instagrams filled with party people like Courtney Love, the Delevingne sisters, and DJ Chelsea Leyland. But when they have the chance, they keep things low-key, dining out at favorite restaurants like “unpretentious, cozy” Maggie Jones’s in Kensington. These days, de La Baume says she’s increasingly workobsessed: “I feel much more alive when I exchange on a creative level with people.” First and foremost—her younger brother, and partner in Singtank, Alexandre. Their second album, Ceremonies, is out this fall, but they began writing songs growing up in Paris in a “major cacophony,” with an older half brother who played jazz sax and parents who “would listen to classical music as one listens to thrash metal … so loud, the walls were shaking.” Regular family vacations and a certain amount of parental discord made Joséphine and Alexandre, two years apart, as close as twins. “We’re very different, but we have a silent understanding.” For her next act, de La Baume has been dipping her toe into directing waters, with a Michel Gondry–esque short for Baccarat and the new Blade Runner–inspired Singtank video, a collaboration with the fashion website Ssense. “I’m a bossypants and a control freak,” she says unrepentantly, “so I feel like director is definitely the best position I can be in.” Yet another side of Joséphine. —Julia Felsenthal

PART

EIGH MOHAN HAS NEVER

harbored any illusions about the challenges she faces finding a romantic partner. Six years ago, Mohan—whose name has been changed at her insistence given the sensitive nature of her story—founded a San Francisco–based startup that helps American companies outsource digital work to women and children in developing countries. Like many entrepreneurs, her life revolves around her company. The travel is intense—just last year, Mohan, now 32, spent 180 days on the road, most of it overseas. There’s also the unavoidable matter of her runway-ready looks: Two years ago, the Harvard graduate was asked to star in a fashion ad; earlier this year, she graced the cover of a popular trade magazine. The entire package, she acknowledges, can be intimidating. So she counted herself lucky when, three years ago at a wedding, she met a handsome tech investor who, after a few lucrative deals, had earned enough to pursue a more laid-back lifestyle as a part-time yogi. Mohan’s career played a key role in their courtship: He often made her breakfast, drove her to work, and told her how taken he was with her professional accomplishments. “He was literally the perfect man,” she gushes. “Everyone was like, ‘Wow, you really scored with this guy. And he doesn’t have a crazy career like banking that’s going to take him away from you, so he can be the supportive partner and you can be the career one.’ I thought, This is awesome.” Eight months later, they were engaged. But soon he began to grouse about Mohan’s relentless travel. She invited him to join her, but he demurred. (“He didn’t love being my plus-one,” she says.) Always the go-getter, she suggested they launch a new venture together, but he rejected that idea, too, confessing just how much he begrudged playing second fiddle to her career. She countered by telling him she had always been honest that work was her top priority, a fact that wouldn’t change whether she wore his engagement ring or not. “When you spend all your time breathing life into something, you don’t just ditch it for a relationship,” Mohan says. A year later, he broke off their engagement.

To be clear, Mohan’s story isn’t a case of mismatched alpha girl frustrated by her beta guy. Mohan says she and her ex were drawn to each other precisely because they shared so much in common: Both were type A, Ivy League graduates, accomplished in their respective fields, both with a passion for health and fitness. Their undoing, she concludes, stemmed from the fact that her career demanded much more support from him than his did from her. And though he claimed to be a sensitive, invested partner, the imposition proved just too much. “I think men still feel very emasculated in that position. I get that it’s difficult, but women do this all the time,” Mohan says. “I know so many women whose husbands are launching startups, and that’s the priority. Men have it easier because women are willing to put up with a lot more. Men are less willing to do that for women.” It’s an increasingly familiar refrain echoed by working women these days. The most recent high-profile example: PepsiCo chief Indra Nooyi, who in an

interview this summer remarked, only half kidding, that just as a woman is building her career, “that’s the time your husband becomes a teenager, so he needs you.” More than half the couples in this country are composed of dual earners, and in just over a quarter of them, the wife outearns her husband, according to the Council of Economic Advisers. These relationships face particular strife. Last fall, a study by economists at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business found that couples with a wife who banks more than her husband are twice as likely to divorce. Gender norms are largely to blame: Even assertive, hard-charging career women find themselves overcompensating in the “wifey” department once they get home, folding laundry and loading the dishwasher to reassure their “threatened” husbands. Not surprisingly, this “second shift” fuels a whole lot of acrimony. “Women still feel pressured to be the domestic doyenne,” says Farnoosh Torabi, author of When She Makes More. “You feel you have to do it because you’ve been conditioned to think you have to do it.” But those gender norms cut both ways, with some women reporting that the ostensibly progressive men who pursued them in part because their careers were such a turn-on (call it the Clooney-Alamuddin Effect) end up balking at the burdens those careers invariably have on their relationships. In other words, they say they want a successful woman, until they actually have to deal with one. Sallie Krawcheck, the former president of Global Wealth & Investment Management at Bank of America, and once regarded as the most powerful woman on Wall Street, famously recounts

the telltale red flag that foretold the collapse of her first marriage. Both she and her exhusband were in their 20s and just embarking on high-flying careers in finance when hers picked up steam while his sputtered for a spell. When she showed up an hour late for dinner, he rolled his eyes. “The eye roll is all you need to know to predict divorce,” she says. “It’s been shown by research to be a notvery-well-hidden sign of contempt. And once you’ve got contempt, you’ve got a problem.” Corinna Perkins* saw her marriage to a renowned scientist implode when she graduated from business school and landed a job with a top-tier consulting firm where 80-hour workweeks were the norm. “When we got involved, I felt like part of what excited him about me was that I was smart and powerful and could keep pace with him, intellectually and professionally,” she explains. “But the day that ring was on my finger, there was a shift. And suddenly, things like my not being home so much, which had been a source of friction but not irrevocable, felt like intractable conflict.” They tried couples counseling, but Perkins says the therapist pressed her to scale back on her work schedule—a request, she feels, that would never be asked of a man on track to make partner at a law firm. Two years later, the couple split. Part of the problem, says Perkins, is that she was surrounded by women who’d made stark choices in their lives: relinquishing careers to accommodate their families or putting off marriage altogether. “I wanted some type of hybrid, but I looked around and nobody had what I wanted,” she says. “My ex-husband wasn’t wrong, and I wasn’t wrong. There were just no models for us to look to in terms of what a marriage could be like.” “We’re in the middle of this sea change in terms of gender roles. It’s messy and complicated, and it’s going to take a long time to sort it all out,” says Anne Weisberg, senior vice president for strategy at the Families and Work Institute. “In Lean In, Sheryl Sandberg gives three recommendations: Don’t leave before you leave, sit at the table, and find a true partner. [Finding the right partner] is a big part of her message, but it’s also the piece that doesn’t get a whole lot [of explanation].” (Sandberg declined to comment.) After divorcing her physician husband after eight years of marriage and two kids, Arielle Swartz* had all but given up on finding a man who would embrace her fastpaced career as founder of an e-commerce startup. “I figured I’d be like Oprah—maybe I’d find a Stedman, but otherwise I was not relationship material,” she recalls. But a year later, she rekindled a fling with an old high

school friend, now a professor, also recovering from a bruising divorce. Both had careers they cherished and intended on prioritizing. How’s it working out? “It’s an ongoing experiment,” Swartz admits. First they tried an open relationship, but then decided against it. Then they agreed to date exclusively but maintain separate households. Neither interferes with the other’s finances; neither plays stepparent to the other’s kids. “Some days I dream about marriage, but we never say we’re going to be together for the rest of our lives,” she says, before adding in exasperation, “Who the f*ck knows what the answer is?” Mohan is also ambivalent in the wake of her “epic breakup.” Afterward, she threw herself back into work and reconnected with friends. “I tend to love men who are extremely alpha, men who are my equals, men I can be challenged by and learn from,” she says, confessing, “men who aren’t willing to play a supportive partner role.” She knows that means she likely won’t ever have the typical TV family she grew up watching: Dad works, perhaps Mom, too, though both return home in time for dinner with the kids. More likely, she says, is that she’ll be half of a romantic partnership between two independent gogetters, two separate lives periodically uniting, but with the emotional support—who will rally her after a career setback, who will be her “emergency contact” on health forms—to be provided by her close network of girlfriends. “I think women are still socialized to think that we have to marry and have kids to fulfill our destiny as women and to subscribe to this social ideal. That might be true for some people, but not necessarily for me. The most important thing for me is being passionate about what I do. Most people spend a lifetime searching for what they want to do with their lives, so I feel super lucky.” November 2014 MARIE CLAIRE . COM 213

SIMPLE WAYS TO SAVE THE

WORLD

In developing countries across the globe, some of the biggest crises facing women are all about access—to education, health care, even clean water. But who says SAVING LIVES has to be complicated or expensive? Sometimes the most effective solutions are also the simplest BY HELEN COSTER PHOTOGRAPHS BY GRANT CORNETT

Big Problem: DIRTY DRINKING WATER One in nine people around the globe— nearly all of them based in the developing world—lack clean, potable water. The result: 3.4 million people die of water-, sanitation-, and hygiene-related causes like diarrhea and typhoid every year.

Simple Solution: A PURIFYING STRAW Developed by Swiss company Vestergaard, the LifeStraw eliminates 99.9 percent of all waterborne bacteria and parasites. Easy to use and cheap to manufacture, it sells for $10 to government agencies and nonprofits that buy the devices in bulk and hand them out for free. So far, LifeStraws have been distributed to millions in 64 countries. Purchase your own LifeStraw (buylifestraw. com) and Vestergaard will distribute a portion of your payment to fund water purifiers in Africa.

Big Problem: DANGEROUS ERRANDS In poor, rural areas, where clean water can be miles away from those who need it, women and girls are usually assigned the backbreaking, sometimes treacherous work of gathering it—a chore that can take hours. The result: Many girls forgo school to be family water gatherers.

Simple Solution: A REINVENTED WHEEL Devised by South African architect Hans Hendrikse and his civil engineer brother, Piet, the ultra-durable Q Drum holds 13 gallons of water and can be easily pulled instead of carried. At roughly $81, the Q Drum is still considered pricey, but its makers are partnering with local humanitarian groups to defray the cost. To learn more about donating to a Q Drum project, e-mail [emailprotected].

November 2014 MARIE CLAIRE . COM 215

Big Problem: TOXIC COOKERS Nearly half the world’s population still cooks over open fires or using rudimentary stoves, with fuel consisting of whatever’s cheap and readily available, like dung, coal, and wood. For the women and girls often responsible

for the cooking, it’s an especially dangerous chore. The World Health Organization estimates that air pollution from solidfuel cooking contributes to more than 4 million premature deaths annually.

Simple Solution: A SMOKELESS STOVE African Clean Energy, a South African manufacturer, sells an “ultraclean” cookstove that consumes 70 percent less fuel and reduces toxic emissions by as much as 95 percent. Priced at

roughly $65, the stove pairs with a solar panel to recharge the battery and an LED light, and has a USB port to power up a cell phone while dinner’s heating up. To find out more about the ultraclean cookstove, visit africancleanenergy. com.

Big Problem: DEADLY HOME BIRTHS An estimated 800 women die every day giving birth or from pregnancy complications—many as a result of infections and hemorrhages. Nearly all of these deaths occur in developing countries, where women routinely give birth at home without the benefit of a trained attendant.

Simple Solution: A DELIVERY KIT In Bangladesh, where maternal mortality rates have been among the highest in the world, the nongovernmental organization BRAC sells a 40-cent, pocket-size “delivery kit,” which includes gauze, carbolic soap (for disinfecting hands), a sterile plastic sheet, and a thread to tie off the umbilical cord and a surgical blade to cut it. To date, BRAC has distributed more than 2.6 million such kits, which are credited with playing a role in the 55 percent reduction in the maternal mortality rate in Bangladesh over the past 15 years. To help support BRAC’s efforts, visit bracusa. org/donate.

November 2014 MARIE CLAIRE . COM 217

Big Problem: UNHYGIENIC PERIODS

Simple Solution: A CHEAPER MAXI PAD

In Rwanda, 18 percent of menstruating girls miss, on average, 35 days of school each year because they can’t afford pads. (So they’d rather stay home than endure the embarrassment.) Some resort to alternatives like rags, leaves, and mud. Not surprisingly, these materials put girls at risk for reproductivetract infections.

Sustainable Health Enterprises (SHE), founded by Harvard Business School graduate Elizabeth Scharpf, and based in Rwanda, makes pads out of banana tree fibers for just 4 cents apiece. But the production costs are borne almost entirely by donors. SHE currently donates the pads to more than 3,000 girls in 10 schools. SHE welcomes volunteers and donors. Visit sheinnovates.com for more information.

Big Problem: CERVICAL CANCER It’s the leading cause of cancer deaths among women in Central America and sub-Saharan Africa, where skilled medical workers and costly diagnostic tests are either unavailable or simply unaffordable.

Simple Solution: HOUSEHOLD VINEGAR Early diagnosis using a test that relies on common vinegar has been shown to reduce instances of death by nearly one-third. With minimal training, a health-care provider can learn to swab the cervix with diluted vinegar, which causes precancerous cells to briefly turn white. Jhpiego, a nonprofit affiliated with Johns Hopkins University, is working to make the vinegar test, and same-day treatment, available worldwide. Donate to Jhpiego at jhpiego.org.

MET MAT T BACKSTAGE at a summer music festival in my hometown of Philadelphia. Wearing retro sneakers and a plaid shirt, he looked like Clark Kent’s cooler younger brother. “You from around here?” I asked. “Nope, Brooklyn,” he said. When he casually mentioned his girlfriend, I cursed my luck: Not only did the first adorable guy I’d seen in ages live two hours away, but he was also taken. Our burgeoning romance did not look promising. “Let’s be friends,” he said, and asked for my number. I figured I’d never hear from him again, but he soon lit up my phone with a steady stream of witty texts. Within days, we had graduated to 226 M A R IE C L AIR E .C OM November 2014

online messaging sessions. Because I typically date artists and musicians, I was impressed he had his own office at a Manhattan startup, where he worked as a project manager. We’d Gchat all day, about everything from the mundane (how his assistant was terrible at answering the phone) to the intimate (I consoled him when his best friend was diagnosed with cancer; he sympathized when I felt disconnected from my newly married best friend). But as much as I loved Matt’s attention, it didn’t feel appropriate, given that he had a serious relationship. So a month after meeting him, I pulled back, taking longer to respond to him, until we’d stopped communicating altogether.

Sexting can offer a false sense of intimacy.

THE FOLL OWING SPRING, Matt texted me out of the blue: “I broke up with her.” I couldn’t believe it—he was really single? I logged on to Gchat for the first time in six months. We quickly picked up where we’d left off—but this time, we didn’t hold back. “What are you wearing?” he asked a week after our happy cyber reunion. “Show me.” I snapped a quick selfie of my pink tank top and black miniskirt and nervously sent it. He hadn’t seen me in almost a year: Was he still attracted to me? “You’re gorgeous!” he said. We started sending each other daily photos: me at Starbucks sipping an iced coffee; him in front of his dartboard at work. “Are we ever going to hang out?” I texted one Saturday night. It was now summer, one year after we had first met, and I still hadn’t held his hand. I’d stopped dating other guys; I was only interested in Matt. “Of course,” he wrote back. “I’m just in between places right now.” Hmm. I offered to come to New York for a day—after all, it’s not like he lived across the country—but he made a somewhat logical argument. “We’ve waited this long to see each other. What’s a few more weeks?” he texted. “I could make you dinner and you’d stay over.” Then: “What are you wearing?” I was in a nightie. As usual, I snapped a pic and sent it. “I can’t wait to kiss your neck,” I wrote. “Yeah?” he replied. “What do you want to do after that?” Our texting ramped up to a whole new level as we tried to out-dirty each other: “I want to suck this,” “I want to lick that.” I’d never talked this openly about my sexual desires before, and it was thrilling. But taking racy pics in my old tank tops wasn’t cutting it; I needed to step up my lingerie game. So I bought a slinky red teddy, handfuls of lacy panties, and a hot-pink silk robe. The cashier must have thought I was staging a low-budget p*rn shoot. Sexting is addictive at first, but once we’d said and done as much as two horny people can do alone with their phones and laptops, it started to lose its appeal. “Is this relationship going anywhere?” I finally asked. I got the same response: “When I get my own place, I’ll be all yours.” I knew that he was still processing his breakup, and I wanted to 228 M A R IE C L AIR E .C OM November 2014

I would’ve asked him to visit me, but at the time I was living with my parents and couldn’t exactly have my sexting partner stop in. We finally decided that I’d come to New York in early October. “I’m going to ravage you as soon as you walk in the door,” he said. I laughed, but I had a horrible feeling that something was amiss. A day before my visit, I texted to confirm. “Are we on?” “Unfortunately”—my heart sank when I saw that word—“tomorrow is no good. I have to give my ex the keys to our old apartment. I’m sorry.” “I understand,” I said, even though I didn’t. He was dragging his heels on what should have been the best part: being together. “I’m doing a reading at a

bookstore in Brooklyn next week,” I wrote. “If you’re serious about us, I want to see you there.” “I’ll be there,” he wrote. “Promise.” THE DAY OF THE EVENT, I was so nervous that I couldn’t eat. I fretted over which outfit to wear, deciding on a blue dress with red heels. I couldn’t focus during my reading. When I wasn’t nervously checking my phone, I was staring at the front door, waiting to see him walk through. But he didn’t come. Dejected, I cried the entire drive back to Philly. “How was it?” He texted the next morning. “Sorry I couldn’t make it.” I didn’t reply. After all the waiting, after our countless hours of talking, after how much energy I’d put into fantasizing about him, I didn’t want to hear his excuses. I just wanted it to be over. It took all my courage to block his phone number, but I did. As painful as it was, looking back it’s clear that Matt never actually planned to meet me. I had to move on to someone who was ready for a real relationship. A month later, just as the snow began to fall, I met a lawyer on Match.com. We’ve been happily dating ever since. And the best part? Aside from the fact that he’s smart, warm, and funny—when I kiss him, he kisses me back.

AMY POEHLER

The Golden Globe–winning star of Parks and Recreation and author of Yes Please, out this month, gets serious (sort of) about dispensing advice, from buying a pet to splurging on beauty to mending a broken heart 1. What brings you the greatest joy?

My children, and a nicely toasted English muffin. 2. What is the best advice you’ve ever been given?

Spend morning in some kind of heroic rescue scenario; nap all afternoon and humbly refuse press; dinner in my backyard at night with friends to celebrate.

“Let’s Go Crazy” by Prince.
