Our August issue is all about loving the body you're in, however you define it – whether that means dressing in sports-informed styles that get you moving, choosing strong, sexy resort wear or simply redefining the narrow beauty standards imposed on us every day. We've got strong, inspiring reads for those in need of some body positivity: celebrated essayist and critic Roxane Gay tells us about her relationship with her own body, and we go looking for unlikely inspiration on Instagram, avoiding the #fitspiration tag.

Plus, contrary to popular belief, our cover star Lana Del Rey is music's newest and biggest advocate for being happy, staying true to yourself, and knowing what will keep you sane and grounded. Read more in our exclusive cover story.

If you're looking for a new fragrance, we've narrowed down the best and most beautiful in our Fragrance Awards, from scents that will keep you focused in the office to those that will work the best on the beach. Our breakdown of Baselworld's new watch releases will give you serious timepiece envy, and if you need some travel inspiration, may we suggest a road trip round New Zealand's South Island – we've sorted your itinerary for you already.
