WSJ. Magazine (@wsjmag) — World's leading luxury magazine from @WSJ. December/January issue on newsstands 12/15.
Thirty-seven years after launching her namesake fashion brand, Carolina Herrera passed the torch to Wes Gordon. When his first show took place in September, Herrera had seen nothing of the collection. She texted Gordon “Good luck” early that morning, but did not offer advice, and he did not ask it. “He knows that he cannot. After I announced he was going to be succeeding me, we were going to do the bridal show, and he called me to ask if I wanted white or off-white, and I said, ‘Wessss! You didn’t understand what I said! You have to do this on your own!’” says Herrera. “And I think this is the best way, because you cannot be in the past.” Read more about how @wesgordon is reimagining @carolinaherrera for the next generation at the link in our bio.

Shifting Gwyneth Paltrow’s persona from a whiskey-drinking, cigarette-smoking cool girl to a health nut had an unintended effect. “That was the beginning of people thinking I was a crackpot. Like, ‘What do you mean food can affect your health, you f—ing psycho?’” she says. “I remember when I started doing yoga and people were like, ‘What is yoga? She’s a witch. She’s a freak.’” Read the full cover story about the @Goop CEO at the link in our bio. (✒: @elk_elisa, 📸: @lachlanbailey, styling by @georgecortina) #WSJMagazine
Photographer Jamie Hawkesworth’s documentation of what he describes as the “in-between moments” during his travels across Kenya, Romania and the southern United States informs his latest show, A Blue Painted Fence, and demonstrates how seemingly unrelated images can be articulated in a shared space. “I think as a photographer, when you go out and just see what you come across, you build a nice momentum where one photograph leads to another,” says Hawkesworth. “I want you to be in my rhythm. I want the viewer to feel they’re experiencing a trip to all of these places.” The show is open now through December 19 in his home base of London. See more of his work at the link in our bio.

Galicia, a verdant paradise in the northwest corner of Spain, has long been a place its residents leave—sometimes for decades, often forever. Now the demographic tide is shifting. “We left home to work in different places outside Vigo,” says José Martínez, co-owner of @malauvavigo, a wine bar and restaurant in Galicia’s largest city. “But we knew we wanted to come home to open something of our own.” Read more about how the Spanish food and wine region came alive again at the link in our bio.

The benefits of interacting with horses are hardly unknown. These days, the herd animals are being tapped to facilitate communication, nourish creativity, build teamwork and even inspire leadership—without the saddle. At Miraval Arizona Resort & Spa in Tucson, guests can enroll in a class called “It’s Not About the Horse,” in which the takeaway is how to lift and clean a horse’s hoof with a pick. The two-hour course is meant to help people overcome fear and self-doubt. When Indiana Pacers head coach Nate McMillan participated, he had to make two attempts to raise the hoof. “It’s learning how to train and condition yourself to calm down in stressful, emotional situations,” he explains. Read more about how horse therapy could make you better at your job. (✒: Kate Donnelly, 📸: Courtesy of Miraval) #WSJMagazine
The South African artist William Kentridge’s latest production, ‘The Head & the Load,’ which made its American debut at New York’s Park Avenue Armory this month, tackles the history of apartheid and colonialism. “I think of it as a performed drawing,” he says. The nearly 90-minute work is an inventive collage of spoken word, song, dance, film, procession and his signature charcoal drawings. In other words, a typically complex and ambitious project for Kentridge, who has forged a lofty reputation as a public intellectual, weaving theater into a visual art that, though grounded in South Africa, is universal in its representation of the human experience.

Gwyneth Paltrow came of age at a time when actresses were expected to aim for an Oscar (hers came in 1999, at age 26, for Shakespeare in Love) and then, perhaps, parlay that into a makeup contract (she did that, too, signing with Estée Lauder in 2005). “On some level I had gotten the message, ‘If you’re not achieving something that’s quantifiable, you might not be worth that much. Somehow, that wire got fused together in my head. So, I was like, How do I keep achieving something?’” she said. In 2008, Paltrow started a small newsletter called @Goop which blossomed into an influential force in the wellness industry. Today it is valued at $250 million.

Newly remarried, Goop CEO Gwyneth Paltrow is living her best life—and believes she can help you live yours better, too. Founded by Paltrow as a niche website, Goop has since incorporated and its valuation hit $250 million this year. For many, it serves as an unofficial portal to all things wellness, with Paltrow in the role of patron saint—and lightning rod. “I’m so happy to suffer those slings and arrows, because if you look at the culture from then to now, people are so curious,” Paltrow says of her critics. “It’s so beautiful to see people feeling empowered by natural solutions or ancient modalities alongside science and medicine.” Read the full cover story online now, on newsstands 12/15.
