Our recent skincare survey found Black women to be the least likely to buy anti-aging products. But why? “As we age, we just become so much more refined. We better ourselves, despite the fact that we’re living in a world where we aren’t the most appreciated. We experience racism and sexism and a lot of us are carrying our families on our shoulders. But we also have been leading the charge,” says @Didi Scott.

"I always thought I was very health-conscious about my beauty routine, keeping it simple with a few seemingly organic products. But pollutants add up. Now I won’t use anything that’s not safe for my daughter to use. I don’t want to poison myself," @LauraDern says in our December issue.

Skin is the one part of our body we all bare, yet so many of us have hangups about it — whether that's how it looks or feels, how it changes over the years, or just exactly how we are supposed to take care of it. That's why we asked a group of over 1,800 women across America, aged 18 to 74 and representing a variety of skin types and complexions, to open up about their skin. They told us their biggest skin concerns, their most beloved products, and more — at the link in bio.
@Alex Borstein’s grandmother stepped out of line when she was about to be shot by a soldier during the Holocaust. That determination and audacity became a blueprint for how the @maiseltv actress lives her life. “I’ve tried each day to recognize that my being here is a gift from my grandmother and to always be bold and create my own opportunities,” she writes in our December issue. “We step out of line because we want something. We make noise because we aren’t being heard. We demand things for ourselves because no one is going to hand us anything.” More at the link in bio.
We wish we were in the room where this happened 😉 @MichelleObama joined Lin-Manuel Miranda at the American Portrait Gala in Washington D.C. in a custom neon yellow @Schiaparelli haute couture gown. @Schiaparelli@Michelle Obama
@Brenda Song's new @Hulu comedy Dollface follows a friend group trying to come back together after a major social misstep — one that Song knows all too well. "I’m fortunate that my girlfriends were very open and forgiving," she says. More at the link in bio. @NATE JENSEN
@Ego Nwodim isn't afraid to poke fun at stereotypes but, as a first generation American and daughter of immigrants, the @nbcsnl star is no stranger to them either. When asked about the show’s recent controversies and her thoughts on the “comedy's too woke” conversation, she says: “The intention matters. You have to be sure you're saying something for a reason and you also need to make sure you're not abusing your privilege. You have to be aware of your privilege in order to know whether or not you're abusing it. And I think these are the kind of introspective assessments people need to be making with themselves.” More at the link in bio. @Theo Barrett™@Maximus@Renee Garnes
“Of all the fashion phases I’ve gone through, perhaps none has been more dramatic than when I became a mom,” @Ali Wong says in our December issue. “It was like all of a sudden, I didn’t want to wear anything that was just meh. I wanted to put on something that would make me feel alive even when I hadn’t showered for days. So I turned to sequins and shiny leopard prints and shimmery gold pants because I needed that extra little sparkle in my life.” More on her style choices, including that famed bodycon pregnancy look, at the link in bio. @
"I didn't realize when I was in fashion and doing that full-time how important that was for movies and for cinema. Now that I do all these different auditions for different characters in different time periods, [I realize] it helps you get into that character so much easier. It's like an extra tool to help you either feel of that era or give you a certain kind of walk and talk. It's like the finishing touch of every character," @Camila Morrone tells InStyle. The Mickey and the Bear star opens up about her new film, feeling like a "puppet" in the modeling world, and meeting Rihanna. More at the link in bio. @Getty Images
Bill Hader isn’t exactly comfortable with his status as an “unlikely sex symbol.” “I kind of have a weird reaction to feeling like I’m being vain, because I’m from the Midwest. But then it’s, like, I’m a father, and I have my own show. I need to be more of an adult and just a little bit more presentable,” he says in our December issue. “And when I started wearing things, I initially felt incredibly uncomfortable, and then I actually enjoyed it.” More from Hader on embracing his vulnerability at the link in bio. |Photographed by @Beau Grealy; Styled by @Mark Holmes; Story by @Molly Lambert@Louis Vuitton Official@Koio@Brunello Cucinelli
According to astrologer @lisastardustastro, the Taurus full moon (happening today!) is one of the best times to implement a new skin regimen. "Full moons are a time of letting go and there’s no better celestial moment than this one to rid the skin of toxins,” she says. Got it. Link in bio for the skincare product each sign should use during this lunar phase.
“The experience of making this film felt like everybody collaboratively was showing up on set every day motivated by their love for her and wanting to express admiration and adoration or affection or you know to celebrate the connection that they felt in some way to her legacy,” Renée Zellweger said of making Judy.

During her break from acting, Renée Zellweger says she traveled, spent time with family, and even studied public policy and law. She relished the chance to have real conversations with people outside of her work in Hollywood. As for her outlook now, she tells @LauraBrown99: “I’d rather be a healthy, productive woman in each stage of my life than apologetic. I also don’t want to perpetuate the notion that somehow moving forward in your life is wrong.” | Photographed by @Sebastian; Styled by @Julia von Boehm@Laura Brown@MUGLER@Gille Mills@Batsheva
All that jazz and a lot of jewels. Renée Zellweger, here in a @Dolce & Gabbana bodysuit (an ode to Chicago’s Roxie Hart), wants to change misconceptions about aging. “I guess it starts with us. With women determining and expressing what we value in ourselves,” she says. “That means what we champion with our choices and how we present ourselves.” Read more in our cover story at the link in bio. | Photographed by @Sebastian; Styled by @Julia von Boehm; Story by @Laura Brown@Manolo Blahnik@Gille Mills@Schiaparelli
Fun fact: In the film Dazed and Confused, Renée Zellweger played the uncredited role of “Girl in Blue Truck.” Here she elevated that character’s look complete in a @Gucci blouse and @GoldenGoose sneakers. Of her time out of the public eye, Zellweger says, “It was nice to have authentic exchanges with people for a while. When you're not on the radar, people don't clock who you are; you're just a person at the coffee shop ordering a coffee. You have conversations that aren't about work..It's nice. It's real and not edited. We meet as human beings.” More from the actress in our cover story at the link in bio. | Photographed by @Sebastian; Styled by @Julia von Boehm; Story by @Laura Brown@Christina Aviles Aude@C H R I S M C M I L L A N@✨KINDRA MANN✨@Gille Mills@Golden Goose
She’s not just a powerhouse in front of the camera. Renée Zellweger — dressed in homage to her Oscar-winning character Ruby Thewes from the Civil War drama Cold Mountain — is thinking about the big picture and isn’t afraid to fight for the projects she wants. “Honestly, if you believe in what you’re doing and if it’s quality material, then why wouldn’t you be aggressive in who you pursue to partner with on a particular thing? Great material doesn’t just show up. You have to develop it and make it happen,” she says in our December issue. | Photographed by @Sebastian; Styled by @Julia von Boehm; Story by @Laura Brown@Eric Javits@Gille Mills@Dior Official
It might be cliche to say Renée Zellweger had us at “hello,” but it’s true. There’s just something about her. She’s been dazzling us on screen for over two decades, but Zellweger, seen here in a nod to her character Dorothy Boyd from Jerry Maguire, says the best is yet to come. “I’m curious. I’m not eager for acquisition. I don’t have a fantasy about arriving somewhere. I challenge myself to grow with the experiences I take on,” she says. “I want to do better.” More with the star at the link in bio. | Photographed by @Sebastian; Styled by @Julia von Boehm; Story by @Laura Brown@Fendi@Alexandra Golovanoff@Victoria Beckham@Gille Mills
In Bridget Jones's Diary, Renée Zellweger’s titular character is on a quest to improve herself and chronicle her search for love. The role was instantly iconic, but Zellweger isn’t one to dwell on the past. “I’d rather celebrate each phase of my life and be present in it than mourn something that’s passed. I don’t want to miss this moment to be something that I used to be. That’s for someone else now,” she tells @LauraBrown99 in our December Issue. | Photographed by @Sebastian; Styled by @Julia von Boehm@Fendi@Roger Vivier@Laura Brown@Gille Mills
“There were some moments. There were some moments,” Renée Zellweger says with a laugh. During her December cover shoot, Zellweger shared memories from the sets of some of her most iconic films, from sliding down a fire pole in Bridget Jones’s Diary to late night shoots for Jerry Maguire.
After taking a six-year break from acting, Renée Zellweger is back — to rave reviews and Oscar buzz for her performance in the biopic Judy. For our December issue, we revisited some of her most iconic characters, from Bridget Jones to Nurse Betty to Jerry Maguire’s Dorothy Boyd.

“None of the shows in the U.K. are as flashy as they are here. We’re much more evening news people,” says @Bel Powley, who plays a production assistant on Apple TV+'s @themorningshow. “It was great because we were both learning about morning television together in a symbiotic way. She was diving into the deep end and so was I,” she says of her character. More from the star on acting alongside “powerhouses” @jenniferaniston and @reesewitherspoon at the link in bio. @Apple TV+
"I loved these photos. They are some of my most favorite,” @DemiMoore said reflecting on her 1997 InStyle cover shoot as part of our 25th anniversary package earlier this year. On getting older, she said: "Everything I had perceived as negative or bad, I now appreciate." In honor of her birthday, we are sharing one @DemiMoore pic we appreciate now, just as much as we did then. |Photographed by @Sante D'Orazio@Demi Moore
Crafting the image of Harriet Tubman for @harrietfilm — without much historical imagery — was no small feat. “This is a new way of telling her story,” costume designer @paultazewell tells InStyle. “Hopefully it’s true to the energy of who that woman potentially was all around, as much as we can ever know.” Link in bio for more on how @cynthiaerivo's costumes, hair, and makeup help tell Tubman's heroic story. @Focus Features
