PORTER’s summer issue is a celebration of the world’s most Incredible Girls: the most inspirational women under 30 who, for the first time in history, have the potential to be heard, counted and affect real change.
Our cover star Karlie Kloss leads the charge: the phenomenal 25-year-old model and tech tycoon talks about her unwavering business drive, the power in female friendship, her inner science geek and mentoring the next generation. One of the most exciting voices of our times, Nigerian literary rockstar Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie tells us why she’s flouting traditional feminist convention in the fight for equality. And PORTER asks two mothers, model Paulina Porizkova and historian Amanda Foreman, what it takes to bring up daughters – and sons – in today’s changing world (and the kids give their verdict too).
A youthful spirit also courses through this season’s fashion – from the sublime romance of soft whites and a fresh palette of pastel hues; to the sleek cool-girl minimalism of the 1990s; exotic vacation pieces perfect for exploring hidden cities; and off-duty utilitarian style for every action girl. And don’t miss the queen of khaki, legendary conservationist Jane Goodall’s Golden Rules, an inspiration to incredible women of all ages.
Meanwhile, as the heat rises, we bring you our definitive guide to achieving leg perfection – discover how to sculpt and streamline, optimize circulation and get a glossy skin finish for feel-good bare legs this summer. Plus, we explore Greece in all its elemental beauty: from the refined hedonism of Mykonos, to the vibrancy of Athens, and the super villas of your dreams in the peaceful Saronic isles.
