KO Media's Elle Canada Adwoa Aboah Cover covered by 360 Magazine

Adwoa Aboah × ELLE Canada

KO Média proudly unveils the October issue of ELLE Canada featuring activist, model and optimist Adwoa Aboah, who opens her heart and shares frank advice for students navigating these strange times.

“For me, school was a roller coaster. On the one hand, I was fortunate to have a supportive family and a close circle of friends,” Adwoa explains in the intimate piece.

“On the other hand, I was extremely shy and insecure about almost everything… I quietly hid my insecurities and internalized my shame.” Now, after founding an online community dedicated largely to mental health, Aboah explains how she rebuilt her life after hitting rock bottom. “Why did I feel so much loneliness and shame about having messy feelings when they are so common and natural?”

In addition to Adwoa’s feature and fresh advice, the October issue will discuss navigating your career during the pandemic, fall accessory trends, and how frizz is in for hair styles this season. Also, this issue has ELLE and UNESCO joining forces and inviting noted thinkers from around the world to imagine what our post-pandemic new-normal will hold.

Check out the October issue of ELLE Canada when it hits the stands on Monday, September 14th.

DUA LIPA × ELLE

KO Media reveals the Summer issue of Elle Canada

KO Media is pleased to unveil the Summer issue of ELLE Canada, covered by chart-topping talent Dua Lipa, who released her much-anticipated new album during the COVID-19 pandemic, delivering a crop of hits able to make audiences both dance and cry. “I think it’s important to talk about your emotions and to be vulnerable and to show that you’re human,” says the artist in the candid conversation, also opening up about her isolation uniform and cooking-at-home adventures.

The escapist Summer issue equips readers with all the fashion, celebrity, style, beauty, health, and political conversations readers crave. The issue includes a primer on Canadian designers changing the industry, an intimate chat with Canadian powerhouse Shay Mitchell, the best ways to protect our skin this summer, a horoscope special to help navigate the season and a dreamy assortment of easy pastels and crisp whites fit for hot summer dressing. But the Summer issue also grapples with stuff-of-life questions: How do you manage relationships between two ambitious alpha partners? How can the COVID-19 slowdown present an opportunity for us to reassess breakneck-speed spending?

Vitally, ELLE Canada remains dedicated to showcasing diverse voices and reflecting the lived experiences of all Canadians. Though the Summer issue went to print prior to the global protests against anti-black racism, readers can turn to ElleCanada.com for up-to-the-minute coverage of the civil rights movement unfolding across the country and engage with difficult, frank and thought-provoking discussions about how White silence is tantamount to violence against BIPOC Canadians, why Canadian media continues to shirk its responsibility to showcase Indigenous voices, and how we can come together to grapple with freeing our society from the burdens of systemic racism and oppression. “Activism and allyship are defined by effort and by taking action,” says Editor-in-Chief Vanessa Craft. “We will continue to do the work necessary to honour and support all Canadians.”

The Summer issue of ELLE Canada will hit stands on Monday, June 29th, and the digital edition can be bought here.

ELLE Canada × Sandra Oh

KO Média is proud to announce that the June issue of ELLE Canada stars brilliant Canadian actor Sandra Oh.

This outspoken and driven creator opens up to ELLE Canada Editor-in-Chief Vanessa Craft about her goals and what’s in store for the much-anticipated third season of her critically-acclaimed series Killing Eve. “I’m in a place in my career now where I am specifically interested in roles that explore a character’s race,” she explains during an intimate breakfast before the cover shoot, which was photographed by famed artist Greg Swales on location in Santa Monica, CA, before COVID-19 restrictions were imposed. “Sandra is an uplifting voice that it feels good to hear from right now: she’s honest, brave, hilarious, creative and dedicated to pushing conversations about race forward,” says Craft.
As powerful executive producer Shonda Rhimes says in this exclusive feature: “You cannot have a superficial conversation with Sandra.”

The timely issue is packed with relevant features for these unprecedented times, as ELLE Canada editors consider what to wear in order to bring joy to your life, round up the best loungewear, spotlight Canadian brands that are pitching in to help the fight against COVID-19, break down how to care for your hair at home, and score tips from the renowned professional home organizers of The Home Edit.

The June 2020 issue also highlights the Indigenous artists who are creating boundary-pushing pieces that are inspiring strength and healing in women, takes a deeper look at the three hero skincare ingredients you need to be using, and offers a frank look at the first stages of an open relationship.

The June issue of ELLE Canada will hit stands on Monday, May 18th.

ELLE CANADA × SUSTAINABILITY

KO Média is proud to announce that the April issue of ELLE Canada is dedicated to pushing forward a frank dialogue about sustainability—as evidenced by a graphic still-life cover treatment, a first for the boundary-pushing brand and a choice which mirrors our rapidly changing times.
 
“The seed for the cover idea grew out of the urgent conversations we at ELLE Canada were having about climate change with each other and our readers,” says Editor-in-Chief Vanessa Craft. “Even though we have long covered the importance of sustainability, the issue has never been more top of mind for our team and we know our readers are looking for an experience that feels authentic and reflective of what is happening in the world around them. We wanted to create a cover that echoes the dialogue taking place and helps us pause and acknowledge the new eco-era we have entered. This powerful image captures this mood—and the questions we are seeking answers to.”
 
The comprehensive April issue includes a wealth of can’t-miss special reports that foster conversation around the issues of importance for Canadians, including a shocking look at why young Canadian women, faced with an ever-worsening environmental crisis, are pledging to not have children; a close look at the merits of recycled textiles; design-forward sustainable shopping picks; the designer transforming the eco-fashion; natural skincare hacks from ELLE beauty editors from around the world; the Canadian skincare brand leading zero-waste innovation and everything you need to know about buying refillable beauty products.
 
Also in this issue: A sneak peek at the ELLE Canada office transformation, including smart strategies to personalize your office space, intimate chats with the new crop of Canadian stars storming Hollywood, and sophisticated dressing that outlasts trends.

JANE FONDA × ELLE

KO Média is pleased to announce that the March issue of ELLE Canada stars the inimitable Jane Fonda.

In a special issue that celebrates getting older with an open mind, the inspiring 82-year old actor, activist and icon opens up about her plans for the future and her past regrets.

“I can’t pretend that I’m not vain, but there isn’t going to be any more plastic surgery—I’m not going to cut myself up anymore,” says the refreshingly frank face of L’Oréal who talks about finding confidence later in life.

“I have psychic scars that I will never be able to give up.”

The special issue is packed with thoughtful features that dig into today’s most relevant questions, examining how societal perceptions about age are changing, and asking: Are fillers over? What’s the TikTok take on beauty? When will we finally start taking openly about menopause? In the words of French supermodel and author Caroline de Maigret, who is also featured in the exciting issue, “showing insatiable curiosity will make you look younger than a new pair of breasts.”

The March 2020 issue also boasts an everything-you-need-to-know guide to the season’s hottest trends, in which seasoned ELLE Canada editors decode how to wear must-have suits, trenches, retro prints, cool-girl denim and more.

Also in this issue: behind-the-scenes with Louis Vuitton’s Nicolas Ghesquière and his muses; a new study that hints romantic movies might be able to heal our relationships; and a fresh take on bold patterns and sleek minimalism.
