What’s in Lucire issue 37?

What’s next on the horizon? This issue’s all about the next thing that emerges. It’s time we bought more carefully when it comes to fashion and beauty—we talk to Natalia Vodianova about the former and provide a cruelty-free guide for the latter.

As we celebrate our 20th anniversary in 2017, we take a first look back in our archives. In July 2007, Sylvia Giles interviewed Taika Waititi, the then up-and-coming film director.
