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.
The March issue of ELLE Canada will hit stands on February 17th.
Pierpaolo Piccioli of Valentino and Jun Takahashi of Undercover discuss how the reopening of the Valentino flagship store in Ginza, Japan brought the two designers together to create diverse and inclusive collections like never seen before.
-Piccioli on collaborating with Takahashi: “The thing that interests me the most about collaborating with a designer like Jun is not the technical creative process in itself but the human exchange and, in our case, the cultural dialogue. That’s how you continuously learn and teach.”
-Takahashi on his inclusion of roses in the women’s collection: “Roses are beautiful, but they also have thorns. I am always attracted to this kind of duality, and this is at least why I chose them.”

ABOUT GRETA CONSTANTINE
CAFA 2016 Womenswear Designer of the Year winner Greta Constantine is an accessible luxury line of ready-to-wear womenswear based in Toronto, Canada. Designers Kirk Pickersgill and Stephen Wong, considered the “jersey boys of Toronto,” have rapidly accumulated a clientele comprised of international socialites and celebrities alike. The label itself is derived from the combination of the name of Stephen’s mother, Greta, with that of Kirk’s grandfather, Constantine. The pair works together in their Toronto area studio — conceptualizing, exploring, and challenging the fashions of today for the women of tomorrow.
The inevitable product of their focus on the female form is design emboldened by sexuality. Yet sexuality and femininity more generally, are socially constructed in a dichotomous manner: ladylike or seductive; prim and pretty or body-skimming and revealing. However, for Pickersgill and Wong, these dichotomies mustn’t be treated as mutually exclusive properties. In the elegantly seductive world of Greta Constantine, it’s not surprising to see a backless top paired with a flared, midi-length skirt or a boxy, ruffle hem sleeveless dress that barely grazes mid-thigh in a shade of salmon, no less. And while the dresses themselves may be constricting to the female form, there’s something truly freeing about wearing a piece that is equal parts matron and vixen. After all, sometimes you just want to be both.

BLIGE, RITA ORA, MILEY CYRUS, LANA DEL REY, COCO ROCHA, LEIGH LEZARK, YARA SHAHIDI, MICHELLE MONAGHAN, ALLISON WILLIAMS, ALESSANDRA AMBROSIO, GRACE MAHARY, ERIN MORIARTY, LESLIE MANN, FRIEDA PINTO, TATIANA MASLANY, NICOLE RICHIE, and more.
