Hi 2017! Boy are we glad to see you. We have every intention of making this the year that 2016 wasn’t, and to help us along the way we have Hollywood’s most polarising personality, Gwyneth Paltrow. We’re here to show that, contrary to popular opinion, the star is warm, funny and — true to Goop legend — tremendously inspiring.

Because we’re all about this being our best year ever. Set up your calendar with our edits of the most interesting and inspiring events, exhibitions and releases due to happen over the months ahead, and navigate the new beauty and wellness trends with our guide to the optimised life. Speaking of beauty, cut through the noise and go straight for our 12 best beauty buys in the world, as determined by international ELLE editors.

What does 2017 fashion look like? Anything you want. Claim your own style this year, whether that’s brights and prints (check out the beautiful looks we shot in India), crisp shirt dresses and minimal jewellery, or all-year-round sparkle. We also celebrate good eating in conjunction with good style, by following new cookbook author Danielle Graham on a stylish supermarket sweep.

What else? Horoscopes for the year ahead, the best ski resort escapes, our favourite ways to get clean, glowing skin and the new trends we can’t wait to wear. Happy new year!
