In the March issue we get to celebrate three of our favourite things: ELLE’s third birthday, the arrival of Spring/Summer and International Women’s Day. Fashion and feminism = our idea of fun.

Our cover star, actress Scha Alyahya, wears the T-shirt that announced designer Maria Grazia Chiuri’s arrival at Dior, the first female creative director in the house’s 70 year history. We think that’s cover worthy, don’t you? And we could think of no-one better to wear it than a self-made success story and inimitable style icon like Scha.

This issue is full of success stories of the fashion and beauty kind too. Don’t miss our enormous runway report and beauty trends hot from the world’s biggest makeup artists backstage at the shows.

We also take the season’s most romantic dresses to Morocco for a dreamy beach shoot, and photograph our favourite twins, Michelle and Rachel Yeoh, in some of their favourite British labels.

Elsewhere we profile some incredible Malaysian women who’ve dedicated their lives to helping other women, and explore the enigmatic but beautiful relationship between sisters.

Finally, if you or a friend are getting married this year don’t miss our special 44-page ELLE Brides magazine, free with the March issue and full of beautiful dresses, shoes and ideas.

Happy March, and happy International Women’s Day!
