Photographer: Fanny Latour-Lambert
Born in Montpellier in the South of France, Fanny Latour-Lambert took to drawing and painting from an early age, creating illustrations which were recognized as the work of a prodigious young talent. In her early teen years, with a requisite dose of rebellion, she took a break from the pencil. Inspired by film, reportage photography, and painting, and frustrated by the lack of spontaneity and inability to capture an instant that drawing fulfilled…she picked up a camera for the first time at age 14. Drawn in by the work of Cristina Garcia Rodero, August Sander, Sally Mann, and Diane Arbus, Fanny too found herself drawn to storytelling and expressing timelessness and emotion with her camera, more than fashion iconography itself.

Karol G Graces Cover of Rolling Stone's September Issue
Since she released her first album six years ago, Karol has endeared millions of listeners across the globe with the cool, crowd-pleasing fluidity of her songs. Her music glides through ripples of reggaeton, Afrobeats, dancehall, and trap, and with sunny, radio-friendly melodies, she sings universal stories of heartache, betrayal, and triumph. Her songs feel equally suited for moonlit beachfront perreos as they are for glitzy club outings — and coming from a woman, they offer a brief respite from the male perspectives on conquest and sex that monopolize reggaeton.

Dlamini, a.k.a. Doja Cat, 27, was born in Los Angeles and spent time as a child with her mother at an ashram led by jazz musician Alice Coltrane. But she is also a member of the connected generation whose creative DNA is defined not by a record collection as much as by a swirling torrent of songs, sounds, clips, and memes. She has been releasing music for more than a decade, but her mainstream breakthrough came in late 2019 with “Say So,” a masterful mash-up of disco, hip-hop, and funk vibes that became a left-field sensation on the eve of lockdown, inspiring a TikTok dance challenge.

Jennifer Hudson Graces Cover of Real Simple's September Issue
Audiences first met her nearly 20 years ago as the R&B savant who should’ve won American Idol. Her clapback was to take home perhaps the most unanimously agreed-upon Best Supporting Actress Oscar in history, for her turn as Effie White in 2006’s Dreamgirls. In 2008, she faced an unspeakable family tragedy, losing her mother, brother, and nephew at once. She kept singing, launching a solo music career that would earn her two gold records and feature collabs with top talents, like Alicia Keys, Pharrell Williams, and Bono. More films followed, including the role your kids know her for: Young Nana, a caftan-clad sheep crooning a gorgeous Beatles cover in the 2016 hit animated musical Sing.

Zendaya Graces Cover of ELLE's September Issue
While filming in Boston in the spring of 2022, Zendaya started noticing how much more famous she’s become in a short span. Even for an actor who’s been a mononymous household name for half her life, every level of fame involves a recalibration. “After the last Spider-Man and the last season of Euphoria, there was a visceral change,” Zendaya explains. “Before, I could get away with going places and getting in and out. But in Boston, I would end up going right back home, because it was really overstimulating. Everybody would go hang out at a bar or something, and I’d be like, ‘I’d love to, but I think I could ruin everybody’s night. Because it’s just not going to be fun once I’m there.’ ”
