For our #SeptemberIssue the theme was authenticity. #KristenStewart told us it was about “being true to that feeling in your stomach and having the confidence and lack of fear to follow that.” For k.d. lang it's about accepting and surrendering to “who you are, instead of trying to become something.” Here’s what @JudithMariaBradley, our vivacious model for our beauty shoot, had to say: “To present oneself as an authentic human being may not be as complicated as we are led to believe. To me, we are souls; spirits made human by genetics, intelligence, geography and my belief in KARMA. It's about staying true to that heartbeat and that childlike feeling of joy that we all understand. It is being true to that gut feeling of being aware. We are magical creatures and should present as such. My authentic body presents me according to my belief system. WHAT do I want to see and show the world; I create it.” ✨✨✨ Tap for photo credits.
