How does this model off duty do it? And by “it” we mean look both perfectly styled and coolly casual? For Russian Sasha Luss, photographed here by Pier Grassano, the formula is simple: a little cold comfort (artfully wrapped scarf; oversized knits), finished off with Tory’s 797 Satchel in chic raffia and snakeskin.
There’s a spectacular sense of discovery in From Vera to Veruschka, the new coffee-table book on the legendary supermodel, born Vera von Lehndorff. We’re all familiar with the German beauty and her impossibly long limbs; even if you haven’t seen her cameo in Michelangelo Antonioni’s Blow-Up (that’s her in the film poster, by the way), you’ve likely come across the iconic shot of her in a lace-up YSL safari jacket, rifle askew on her shoulders. But we’ve never seen her quite like this — and that’s what makes Johnny Moncada’s photos here, taken in Rome in the early Sixties, such a find. Hidden in his attic until his death, these revelatory, never-before-seen images capture the model pre-fame — in the fresh-faced years before she reinvented herself as Veruschka. “Perhaps you can see the beginnings of this transformation,” she writes. “[But] in Johnny’s photos I always remained Vera.”
Minimal effort, big impact. That’s our printed jersey dress in a nutshell. With a fluid drape and ultra-flattering fit, it’s a style that always looks pulled-together. Make it part of your everyday routine — and then take it on the fly: it’s wrinkle resistant and packs easy, too, making it ideal for warm-weather getaways.

“I went to Morocco in college with a group of friends — it was particularly fun because we all had food poisoning on the entire trip. But we had a fantastic time as well. And we lost some weight.” — Eric Wilson, InStyle Fashion News Director
The prettiest shade of blush and a flash of metallic. Perfectly polished florals and streamlined Sixties-style silhouettes. We’re coming up rosy — and we can’t get enough.
