From Laura Brown and the Editors of InStyle comes a podcast dedicated to and inspired by the women who are consistently brave, kind and curious. The ones who empower other women and know how to get things done. Following the tone of InStyle, it’s not just celebs for celebs sake; it’s the ones who have something to say. It’s not just fashion for fashion’s sake; it’s about style and how to make it yours. In weekly interviews, Laura shares the mic with the changemakers and rulebreakers making waves and setting trends as they talk about all things style, strength and substance.
