We're starting the party early this month. Technically, you might be expected to wait another few weeks before you swap your work pumps for stilettos and let your hair down at all those end-of-year celebrations, but why wait to have fun when you can do it right now? This month we're all about fun fashion, whether it's a furry bag, shoe or cap (page 30), a sparkly silver sweater or pair of sunglasses (page 22), galactic-inspired dresses (page 23) or a little Parisian-inspired glamour for daytime (page 77). If you are stuck in the office, don't miss our story This is what a leader looks like (page 52) for some ideas on how to shift your management style out of the Eighties and into the 21st century. Even if you aren't a manager, there is loads to learn from the inspiring women leaders we feature here.

The most exciting thing in this month's issue, however, is our giant list of winners in the third annual ELLE Malaysia Best of Beauty Awards. From makeup to haircare to skincare, these are the best beauty products we've tried this year, and we think you'll agree. Get shopping!

Finally, Jennifer Lawrence makes her second appearance on our cover, this time wearing divine Dior Cruise and discussing her incredible new film Mother!, directed by Darren Aronofsky (who also happens to be her boyfriend of a year).

There's lots to love about ELLE in November. Grab your copy from newsstands now or purchase from the Mongoose store.
