When InStyle launched, no one had seen anything like it before. Instead of using models for inspiration, we decided to focus on celebrities — visiting their homes and showing red carpet looks head-to-toe. Much has changed since then but one thing remains true: We believe in the power of style and its ability to transform the everyday.
