We're welcoming February, and all the awards season action, with golden girl Michelle Williams. Michelle's seen her fair share of tragedy, hard graft and Hollywood madness, but this is her year to shine. With a multiple-nominated movie out, and new roles she's in love with, Michelle tells us how she makes it work, and how she stays real.

It's also, of course, the month of love and romance. Shop our edit of the dreamiest fashion, bags, shoes and lingerie, even if you don't have a Valentine's date. Because really, we do it for ourselves, as explained in 'Ode to the single life', our love letter to singlehood. (It's just not true that married people have more fun.) Speaking of love, we're head over heels for the new season's fashion, and have a first look at the key trends for Spring/Summer. And then there's the small matter of ELLE Style Awards, the party we threw to celebrate Malaysia's best designers and most stylish people. Check out all the backstage, behind-the-scenes and red carpet action in the new issue.

Over in beauty, we're dialling up the disco with glitter, gloss and sparkle for day and night. We've also tried and tested the best red lipsticks, found the solution to adult acne, and discovered a cushion foundation that could be your new best friend. Plus: travel trends to try, why perfectionism could be bad for you, and the season's biggest buy that you already have in your wardrobe. Happy reading!
