You’ve seen this before but we’ll say it here, we are living in an unprecedented time. Truly we are. As the whole world waged war against the Coronavirus pandemic, we are doing our part by working from home, staying safe and abiding by the Circuit Breaker rules for social distancing. Unfortunately, due to the extension of Circuit Breaker measures, there has been a delay in our regular printing schedule. This was a bummer for the ELLE Singapore team as we are so proud of our May 2020 issue and can’t wait to share it with our readers. Hence, we have decided to offer the full issue on us.
Introducing ELLE Singapore’s brand new e-magazine platform! We are so happy to bring you the fashion spreads, images and stories we’ve poured over, with the hope that at the very least, our website can be a form of escapism from the craziness of reality. This issue explores the theme of “Redesigning your life”, which seems apt in these volatile times. The challenges that we face in life give us the opportunity to adapt and redesign the status quo. We, too, are rolling with the punches, rethinking how we can deliver print content we love to you.

Our May cover star, top South Korean actress, Song Hye-Kyo is no stranger to adapting and “redesigning” herself by taking on a diverse range of film and television roles. It’s really no wonder she has such a long and successful career. Touted as one of the most beautiful women in South Korea, ELLE Singapore caught up with Song to discuss the challenges she faced, self-improvement and the secret to staying on her A-game.
In this issue, we also looked into how the fashion industry has changed and adapted in the face of a pandemic that shook the world. The trends we are obsessing over, the future of fashion and so much more! Not forgetting self-care routines that have become all too important in these trying months. We answer your burning beauty questions, share the serum that Song Hye-Kyo swears by and test the best bases to cheat radiant skin, despite stress-induced breakouts.
