Adele is featured on the cover of Elle Canada announced by Vaughn lowery of 360 MAGAZINE

ADELE × ELLE

KO Média is excited to unveil the September issue of ELLE Canada, featuring British singer-songwriter Adele. The multi-Grammy-award-winning star finally opens up about the difficult decision to cancel her Las Vegas residency at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace. “The first couple of months were really, really hard,” she says. The star dives into how she went into hiding after the dramatic cancellation announcement on Instagram, her reasons for doing so and how the last-minute decision actually “made [her] confidence in [herself] grow because it was a very brave thing to do.” During the intimate interview at her home in July, only weeks out from her half-decade-long stage break, Adele spoke about the incredible arrangement she and her former partner have when it comes to co-parenting their son and even gushed about being madly in love—and joked about being unmarried (for now)—with her new man, sports agent Rich Paul. But it wasn’t all lighthearted. The singer went into detail about enduring the lowest points of her career, feeling lonely, experiencing anxiety attacks and finding herself again through fitness and kickboxing. Now Adele is on her way back to Las Vegas, and the response has been better than she could have imagined.

With the strongest of the summer season’s rays behind us, it’s time to stock up on hydrating foundations and skin-perfecting serums to help restore our skin after all the sand and sun we indulged in. For readers trying to hold on to the warmth for as long as possible, we take a look at Barcelona’s hottest spots, highlighting where to stay, what to eat and where the best shopping is in the Catalan city. And nothing says endless summer like the fresh, romantic scent of roses, which are the highlight of Lancôme’s French estate and its timeless perfume line.

Looking ahead, our biggest trend reports have the scoop on what you’ll want to wear and how you’ll want to style your hair and do your makeup for the fall season. And with the inevitable return (at least in part) to the office, the baggy, flowy, oversized power suit—inspired by the likes of Yves Saint Laurent, Martin Margiela and Yohji Yamamoto—has made its way from the runways into our closets. Work attire has finally shifted from tight and structured-tight to loose and comfortable—think Zendaya in Valentino’s latest ad campaign. Just add this season’s neon liner, bold lips and big accessories, and “What should I wear to work?” will seldom be a question in the morning. However, heading back to the office doesn’t come without a shift in work-life balance. Val Desjardins, our new health and wellness contributor, explains her holistic approach to adopting new habits and pursuing daily pleasure, making the transition to a new normal a breeze.

This issue also focuses on female empowerment. We spoke to multi-Juno-winning R&B artist Savannah Ré about her new album as well as bestselling author Lisa Taddeo about how she helps readers grapple with feelings of loneliness and grief. We also have advice for Canadian women on how to ask for a raise or promotion—and get it too—and we chatted with actor Myha’la Herrold about feeling bold, confident and empowered in her career. But empowerment isn’t only career-focused; non-binary and transgender people are starting to feel more empowered through their hair. New salons are ditching the old-school binary haircuts and opting for more inclusive services, allowing everyone to express themselves through their hair.

On the fashion front, up-and-coming South African designer Lukhanyo Mdingi is creating a legacy through his designs and using the skills of local people to create his brand’s blueprint. And we take a closer, more critical look at the well-intentioned trend of donating clothing. What we discovered is that a large majority of these pieces end up in the oceans, on beaches and in landfills in other countries, like Ghana. This piece makes us rethink the Instagram trend of having a different outfit for every post, the ethics of fast-fashion companies like Shein and how we can reduce our carbon footprint when it comes to our closets.

Rita Ora – Finish Line

“Finish Line,” performed by global superstar Rita Ora and written by award-winning songwriter Diane Warren, was released across all music streaming platforms and is the soundtrack for ESPN‘s upcoming four-part Title IX docuseries, 37 Words. A true passion project across the company, ABC Owned Television Stations’ race and culture team played a pivotal role in securing the song and was part of a majority-women-led team responsible for the creative vision of the “Finish Line” music video. An exclusive clip of the music video premiered Sunday, May 15, during ABC’s American Idol. Emmy Award-winning producer and host Ryan Seacrest interviewed both Ora and Warren live.

“Finish Line” is a women empowerment anthem that will support “37 Words,” a four-part ESPN docuseries from documentary filmmakers Dawn Porter and Nicole Newnham, as part of The Walt Disney Company‘s Fifty/50 initiative led by ESPN. The Fifty/50 initiative commemorates the 50th anniversary of the passing of Title IX, the federal civil rights law that prohibits sex-based discrimination in any educational institution receiving federal funding and gave women the equal opportunity to play. 

“I knew that I wanted to be a part of the Fifty/50 initiative because it celebrates the 50-year anniversary passing of Title IX,” said multi-award-winning songwriter Diane Warren. “This powerful initiative inspired me to write ‘Finish Line’ as an uplifting anthem that reminds us to never give up the fight. It may be 50 years since the law was passed, but we are still pushing for the fundamental human right of equality. Rita Ora understood the message of never giving up within this song. She sang it so movingly with the conviction it needed.”  

“I love working with Diane. She is such a brilliant songwriter and collaborating with her is always a joy,” said global superstar Rita Ora. “When she brought this song to me, I was so moved by the lyrics and the passion they evoked and knew instantly that I had to be involved with the project. The fight for women’s equality is a global issue. Every day, women around the world are fighting to be seen, heard and respected. We must continue to work to empower one another as we strive to make equality a reality for women in every part of the world.”

“As we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Title IX across The Walt Disney Company, it is a true gift to have two such prolific, powerhouse artists as Rita Ora and Diane Warren contribute their talent and passion to a song that celebrates and encourages girls and women around the country,” said Debra O’Connell, president of Networks for Disney Media & Entertainment Distribution. “‘Finish Line’ is a fantastic and empowering anthem, brought to life by an extraordinary and inspiring group of women. I’m incredibly proud of this collaboration and thrilled to showcase it on our Networks as part of the Fifty/50 initiative.”

McLaren x NYSE/ICE Conference via Vaughn Lowery for use by 360 Magazine

McLaren Press Conference

McLaren Racing and Intercontinental Exchange, Inc. (NYSE: ICE) team up as ICE was announced an Official Partner of the McLaren MX Extreme E Team. To debut their brand-new partnership, McLaren officials took part in a news conference at the Exchange, and the Number 58 McLaren Extreme E race car sat outside while the professionals talked all things McLaren x ICE.

360 Magazine’s very own Vaughn Lowery attended the conference and had the opportunity to speak with McLaren Racing Senior Principal Race Engineer Leena Gade and McLaren EX Extreme E Driver Tanner Foust. Listen to the official 360 Mag Podcast episode HERE.

Vaughn talked all things McLaren sustainability, diversity and female empowerment with Leena Gade, McLaren Racing’s Senior Principal Race Engineer.

Leena raved about the importance of McLaren and ICE sharing beliefs regarding approaching work in a green way while also encouraging diversification in the workplace. Working in the spaces of engineering and racing that are conventionally white male dominated, Leena stressed the importance of representation within the field.

As a daughter of immigrant parents, Leena’s family moved to the UK from India to build a new life for Leena and her sister. Driven to build a successful life full of opportunities for their children, Leena’s parents story resembles that of one that a surplus of Indian families goes through. Leena emphasized this, while placing emphasis on how they encouraged hard work and dedication to achieve their ambitions.

Anyone can do this,” she stated, and continued about how it’s important for everyone to have someone to look up to that looks like them. She remembered as a child how all the racers she looked up to were white men, creating conversations about range in the field. These factors are exactly why the partnership between McLaren and ICE is one that she got behind.

Preserving the Earth, too, is another associated value that the two corporations believe in. Leena spoke on how its vital that McLaren aligned themselves with another entity that took climate issues as seriously as they did. It’s vital that our society considers the significance of the modern climate, and that there’s no reason for the crisis to become so intense.

Vaughn also had the chance to sit down with Tanner Foust, one of McLaren’s EX Extreme E Drivers. They chatted about how Tanner delved into the field of racing from starting out as a bio major, how Extreme E driving differentiates from the norm of racing and the continuing inclusivity of McLaren.

With a 25-year career as a racer, it might shock you that Tanner had early dreams of becoming a doctor. Attending University of Colorado majoring in biology, Tanner was always interested in racing, but didn’t quite know how to get his start in the field. Taking on a job with an inventor that made amusement park rides, he found inspiration in his boss that went after his aspirations and lived life each day not feeling like he was “working.”

Deciding to get a job as a mechanic for a local Colorado racing team, Tanner found his start into the world of racing. He then worked his way up and learned how to turn this passion into a profitable job. This has to be his number one piece of advice for anyone aspiring to dive into their dream career; obtain a job that is close to the one that you want, and slowly work your way to that goal.

When asked the question of what his biggest accomplishment with racing had to be, Tanner recalled the first time that he was able to make a livable income from racing. Turning this passion into a fully fledged career was a massive achievement for Tanner, and he aims to give younger people guidance to also become a professional driver.

Now fully immersed in the field of racing, Tanner finds McLaren racing to be unlike any racing he’d previously taken part in. Extreme E approaches racing in a different light with fast sprints and difficult racing terrains. He accredits McLaren to challenging what he thought he was previously capable of and opening him up to a brand-new realm of racing.

Like Leena, Tanner spoke to the great advancements that McLaren has been making towards a more sustainable and inclusive approach. Motorsport is evolving to become more gender and carbon neutral, which is something that Tanner advocates for fully. The extraordinary team working behind the scenes day in and out continues to advance the space of motorsport.

LEADERS APPLAUD JUDGE KETANJI BROWN JACKSON

PROMINENT NATIONAL BLACK WOMEN LEADERS APPLAUD JUDGE KETANJI BROWN JACKSON ON HER HISTORIC U.S. SENATE CONFIRMATION HEARING FOR SUPREME COURT

The Black Women’s Leadership Collective, a coalition of 11 national Black women’s organizations networks and leaders, applauds Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson for her historic appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee this week. Judge Jackson demonstrated why she belongs on the United States Supreme Court, despite false, unwarranted and vitriolic Republican attacks on both her character and her nearly decade-long tenure as a federal judge. 

The Black Women’s Leadership Collective — an organizing hub of national leaders who represent millions of advocates and supporters — is urging the Judiciary Committee to advance Judge Jackson’s nomination to the full Senate for confirmation as the first Black woman to serve on our nation’s highest court.

Judge Jackson’s appearance before the Senate Judiciary Committee deepened the pride and joy Black women across America have felt since she was nominated by President Biden.  She did us and our ancestors proud. Day after day, hour after hour, Judge Jackson’s character, integrity, deep knowledge, and respect for the Constitution were eminently clear. She cut through the noise and partisan rancor to discuss her record with such grace, transparency, and thoughtfulness that it’s no surprise the Senate previously confirmed her for three positions, including two judgeships, with bipartisan support. 

Judge Jackson faced distortions of her record, attacks, hostility, and downright rudeness from Senate Republicans, who should be ashamed of their actions during these proceedings. The interruptions, barely coded dog whistles and disrespect mirrored the lived experience of Black women in America and serve as a reminder why representation matters and why Judge Jackson’s historic nomination is an inspiration.  As our children watched these hearings, they saw yet another moment in Judge Jackson’s inspirational life as she faced baseless attacks with grace, strength, and incredible poise.

Grounded in core values of faith, family, and service, it’s also no surprise that Judge Jackson the has earned a wide range of endorsements, including the Fraternal Order of Police, the International Association of Chiefs of Police, former attorneys general, lawyers and retired federal judges of both parties. These endorsements prove beyond doubt that Judge Jackson is a strong supporter of law enforcement and works to protect the public from criminals.

We urge the Senate Judiciary Committee and the full Senate to vote swiftly — and overwhelmingly — approve Judge Jackson for the Supreme Court.

Elle Canada April Issue

KO Média is excited to unveil the April issue of ELLE Canada featuring multi-hyphenate Tracee Ellis Ross. The award-winning Black-ish star shares her lifelong love of fashion, from playing dress-up with her stylist to using clothes as a tool for advocacy. “For a while, clothing was like my armor, a way to protect myself,” she says in a candid interview. “When I began to feel more comfortable in my own skin, fashion became one of the most important means of my self-expression.” The new Tiffany & Co. ambassador also talks about finding self-acceptance with age. “I have created a life that works for me, that looks like me, that feels like me, and I know myself. It took me many years to become who I am now, and it feels good.”

Environmentalism is imbued in this issue, with articles that delve into North America’s seemingly insatiable appetite for fast fashion and how environmental racism affects the physical, mental, and emotional health of Indigenous and other marginalized communities. We also explore the role of women in the fight to protect our planet—with a spotlight on four Canadians who are leading the charge—and talk to the teams behind seven beauty brands that are revolutionizing the industry with their sustainable practices.

There’s no shortage of rising stars in this edition. Writer-director Domee Shi shares the inspiration behind her first feature film, Turning Red, and her thoughts on the diverse future of animation. Singer-actor Sonia Ammar reflects on finding courage, self-love, and landing her first major Hollywood role. And, Lana Condor discusses her role in improving Asian-American representation as an actor and a brand ambassador. We also talk to Veep star Anna Chlumsky about playing a journalist in Shonda Rhimes‘s latest series, Inventing Anna. Canadian photographer Maya Fuhr opens up about her continued push for body-positive beauty standards.

In fashion, we explore the consumer shift toward subtle status signaling; give readers an inside look at Chanel‘s latest fashion show; learn about luxury Italian fashion house Fendi‘s collaboration with Mabeo, a Botswana-based furniture brand; and check in with jewelry designer Valérie Messika on her mission to democratize the diamond.

London Electric Vehicle Company inside 360 MAGAZINE

London Electric Vehicle Company

Marking International Women’s Day and supporting this year’s #BreakTheBias gender equality campaign theme, London Electric Vehicle Company (LEVC) is sharing the stories of the capital’s female licensed taxi drivers. 

First taking place in 1911, International Women’s Day celebrates the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women. Today it sees a number of missions to help forge a gender equal world, including building workplaces where women thrive and forging their empowerment.

Traditionally highly male-dominated, the London taxi trade got its first licensed female cabbie in 1967, when Shirley Preston passed The Knowledge. Fast forward to 2022 and female drivers are not only continuing to change professional stereotypes, but many are also choosing LEVC’s electric TX, the world’s most advanced taxi, and contributing to a more sustainable future, too.

LEVC was delighted to bring together three TX-driving female cabbies who expressed how proud they are to be licensed London taxi drivers, and how they want to encourage more women into the profession, fostering a more equal and diverse future.

London cabbie, TX owner and passionate YouTuber, Dale Forwood said: “Being a London cabbie is a wonderful profession, renowned throughout the world, and it’s open to everyone. I’m made to feel very welcome by a trade which is predominantly male. It gives you a good work and family-friendly balance, with flexible hours. I highly encourage more women to become a licensed driver and continue to break the bias around taxi drivers. It’s a women’s job as well.”

London TX Taxi Driver, Marie Samuels, commented: “I love being a female taxi driver because any woman from any background can do it and I want to encourage all women to gain the knowledge and feel confident to become one.”

London TX Taxi Driver, Lisa Seymour, commented: “As a mother of two, it’s the perfect job for me as it’s got flexibility and means I can work around my children. I found it really hard at first and it makes me so proud to have got to where I am, not only do I drive a taxi, I now teach others to become a taxi driver. All women can do it and I am so glad we are breaking the bias.”

LEVC’s electric TX taxi eliminates range anxiety, minimises COemissions and optimises profitability thanks to its unique eCity technology. It offers a pure electric, zero-emission range of 64 miles (103km) and is capable of a total range of up to 318 miles (512km) thanks to its innovative range-extending technology. Regardless of age, gender or disability, TX is an accessible and inclusive vehicle for all passengers. Wheelchair users are able to enjoy a forward-facing position, while TX has flexible space on board for up to six occupants.

LEVC is also proud to support Think Pink Cabs. Operating in Nottingham, Think Pink taxis are all electric and driven exclusively by female cabbies who can choose to only carry female passengers. Think Pink’s ethos is to provide a safe, high-standard service.

Joerg Hofmann, CEO of LEVC, added: LEVC is proud to offer its support to International Women’s Day, and we are committed to #BreakTheBias. It is inspiring to hear from these three female London cab drivers – I hope their stories encourage more women to enter the London taxi trade. I am also delighted they choose to drive the TX, the world’s most advanced taxi.”

YLONA GARCIA RELEASES NEW TRACK

“[Ylona Garcia is] an international superstar in the making.” — Flaunt Magazine

Today, 19 year old Los Angeles-based singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Ylona Garcia has released an absolute banger of a song called “Entertain Me via PARADISE.

Much like her 2021 single “All That,” “Entertain Me” is a straight up female empowerment anthem and destined for club greatness.

Produced by DNA and co-written by DNA and Ylona herself, the song finds the Australian-born Filipino artist asserting her independence and dispelling the notion that she can be fooled and controlled by anyone.

Coinciding with the single’s release is the launch of a new playable character in Riot Games wildly-popular video game, Valorant. The new character named Neon, who has been described as hailing from Manila in teasers, speaks Tagalog language, and is described as one of the youngest agents “who can outpace the rest of the roster, shocking the competition, and sliding straight into the fight.” Indeed, the launch of the character Neon perfectly compliments the empowered persona Ylona exudes in “Entertain Me.”

At only 19 years old, Ylona Garcia has set her sights on the global landscape in the next stage of her creative journey. With multiple song releases under her belt already, in addition to appearing on two of the biggest reality/talent contests shows in the Philippines, Ylona Garcia has become one of the fastest-rising, most prominent young voices in the Filipino music community. She currently has over 4.1 million Followers on Instagram and nearly 1 million followers on TikTok in addition to over 265,000 monthly listeners on Spotify and 170,000 subscribers on her YouTube channel.

Ylona Garcia’s music is released by 88rising’s sister label PARADISE RISING, which was launched in 2020 to help bring Filipino music to the forefront of culture.

About 88rising

The company has gone from a leading record label to a transformative media company and is now the most recognized pan-Asian music company in the world and a leader in music, media and events celebrating Asian culture. 88rising was the first company to launch an Asian-centric music festival in the United States (Head in the Clouds Music & Arts Festival), the first to have an Asian R&B artist top the Billboard charts (Joji) and the first to launch an all-Asian, multi-genre music radio channel with SiriusXM in December 2020. The brand recently announced a first look deal with Sony Pictures TV in January which allows 88rising to continue their mission of creating stories that center around Asians and Asian Americans through the development of scripted series across all platforms for Sony Pictures TV.

ELLE Canada Releasing Holiday Issue

KO Média is excited to unveil the Holiday issue of ELLE Canada featuring Diane Kruger. The German-born actor talks about learning choreographed fight scenes for the new action-packed spy thriller The 355, how her life has changed since having a daughter (spoiler: it involves more time at playgrounds and less time sporting cool Chanel boots), and working on a child-friendly set with other mothers. “I’ve never done a movie like this in my career,” she admits. “I usually make films with a lot of men and very few female leads, so this was really refreshing.” Kruger also discusses changes in the film industry now that women have greater creative control, and the fulfilment that comes from playing more nuanced characters. “At this point in my life, I’m interested in roles that show women in their complexity, in their fullness.” 

Female creatives abound in this edition. Singer-actor Josie Ho explains why Hong Kong’s male-dominated film industry prompted her to launch her own production company. Actor Aubrey Plaza talks about connecting with young readers in her new children’s book, a dark and twisty Christmas tale. Montreal-born artist Chloe Wise, a lover of food and hyperrealism, reflects on how her work has evolved over the last five years. Kaia Gerber—model, actor and daughter to Cindy Crawford—opens up about the importance of self-care and listening to your body.

With the holiday season upon us, our team has assembled a local gift guide complete with clothes, accessories, beauty products and home-decor pieces from an all-Canadian lineup of brands. We also ask beauty experts to share their insider tips, tricks and must-have items for a polished look at your upcoming IRL soirees. Plus, some limited edition holiday beauty products, Dior’s elegant new makeup line, and must-have hair treatments for winter.

For those swept up in post-pandemic wanderlust, take a trip to Newfoundland’s Fogo Island Inn, a magical retreat imbued with the remote community’s rich history and way of life. And Susan Sarandon weighs in as the global brand ambassador for Fairmont Hotels & Resorts. If you’d rather take it easy over the holidays, check out our roundup of the top TV shows of 2021 that you might have missed.

In fashion, this issue takes readers from the ski resort to the catwalk with the latest in alpine chic; explores how Canadian lingerie brand Fleur du Mal pairs whimsy with sexy; and dives into the backstory of the wildly successful Boyy accessories brand. We also get a glimpse of a retrospective exhibition at Montreal’s McCord Museum that delves into the androgynous, avant-garde style pioneered by Parachute.

There’s something for everyone in this edition, from our conversation with Jean-Marc Gallot, CEO of the iconic champagne house Veuve Clicquot, to a wide-ranging discussion with Canadian tennis pro Bianca Andreescu about Cadillac’s first all-electric vehicle, making eco-friendly choices and taking care of her physical and mental health.

The Holiday issue of ELLE Canada will hit stands and Apple News+ on November 16, 2021.

Sael and Beele – Insuficiente

Sael and Beele join their talents for the release of “Insuficiente”

Available on all digital platforms

Argentina and Colombia come together to give life to “Insuficiente.” The voices of Sael and Beele make the perfect match to this song that brings a positive message into today’s society and is now available on all digital platforms.

Inspired by female empowerment, Sael and Beele wrote this song for all women who, at some point in their lives, have felt “insufficient” next to their partners.

The song was born under the wings of the record label Black Koi Entertainment, with the production of Sael and Taiko and the co-production of Sky Rompiendo. “Insuficiente” begins as a sensual urban ballad that later becomes a powerful reggaeton, with a dynamic and commercial rhythm.

The song premieres with its official music video, shot in the beautiful city of Medellín, Colombia, under the lens of filmmakers Film by Dave and Lucas Emiliani.

Sael is part of the new generation of urban music interpreters. He is currently receiving great support from his fans, allowing him to make his born-country Argentina proud of his talents.
