Welcome, winter. Your late dawns and chilled breath make me lazy, but I love you nonetheless. -Terri Guillemets.
I love winter! The smell of snow in the air. The brightest moonlight you will ever see. Stars like golden dust. The smell of wood fires. Hot chocolate in the snow. Mulled wine. Sloe gin. Spiced cider. Chestnuts roasting over charcoal. Gingerbread. Snow angels. Intimate conversations that never end on a beautiful winter evening. In Siberia, they say shopot zvyozd, or the whispering of the stars.
There’s more. A privacy about winter, which no other season gives you. In spring, summer and fall, people kind of have an open season on each other; only in the winter, can you savour belonging to yourself.
This issue celebrates broader definitions of talent and beauty.
She is a Supergirl! From her personal style to her role on Smallville, Laura Vandervoort opens up about passion, inspiration and kindness. Stunning, talented, kind… those are just a few words to describe the lovely Laura, the cover star of InLOVE’s Winter 2018.

Don’t hide your lingerie! These luxe creations are designed to be seen.
This season’s hair and makeup trends provoke you to get lost in felicity. Unpolished and pretty is the name of the game, whether modern, minimal or colorfully glitz and glam, celebrate the wonder which is you. In a season where no rules are the rule, the possibilities are truly endless.
Hollywood Fiesta is your guide to staying hot this winter. Brad Beyer, one of Hollywood’s hottest actors, and model Lucas Blom, show you how to wear the season’s hottest trends. Beyer, known for his work in Legendary Pictures’ baseball biopic drama 42, the CBS series Jericho, HBO’s Vice Principals, and Showtime’s Shameless, translates runway trends into every day, wearable fashion.
Continuing with Hollywood traditions, from comedic actor to style guru, Echo Kellum knows how to embrace every bit of his character – in the roles he plays on TV or just real-life. Emmy-Ready, Breeda Wool is hard to miss. From her breakout role as Faith Duluth, playing Victoria in Betas, and her work on drama series Mr. Mercedes, the lovely Breeda has got it all.
He Acts, Writes and Directs. Major Crimes actor, Graham Patrick Martin talks new season, inspiration and taking on the role of director.
And who doesn’t love NCIS, which recently returned with Sean Harland Murray starring as Special Agent Timothy McGee. Murray began his acting career early and landed the role of Danny Walden in the television series JAG.
Every talent can turn into a gift – such as acting, directing, playing music, creating art, cheering up a friend, giving homemade food to the homeless, or just listening to the stranger. By offering our talents to others, we feel good sharing who we are with the world. This is what InLOVE is all about.
At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person who inspires us. Each of us can feel deep gratitude for those who have lit the flame within us.
Fulfill your dreams and celebrate this winter season to the max!
