“This is a highlight reel, and it is a creative outlet. Instagram is not real life.”

Social media has altered our perceptions of beauty and brought new talent to our attention in the latest edition of our annual hot list

Our Hot 100 Cover Girl Olivia Culpo is a natural-born winner

— – —

This year we decided to do things a bit differently. The inexorable rise of digital influencers – and a certain progressive social movement you may have heard a little something about – led us to reconsider what it means to be “hot” in 2019. There’s physical beauty, sure. But that was only part of our attraction algorithm. As a general rule, the women who caught our eye bring something else to the party, succeeding in their chosen field against long odds through sheer determination, raw talent, and a willingness to put themselves out there.

Au coeur du Kamchatka

Ce n’est pas pour rien que le volcan Bakening est appelé le cœur du Kamchatka – il est magnifique !! Les mots ne peuvent pas décrire, il faut le voir! Et ce n’est pas l’hiver, mais juillet. Un vrai lac de glace dans la caldera d’un volcan! Pour voir cette beauté, il valait la peine de traverser des passages difficiles et plusieurs kilomètres à travers champs et forêts en compagnie de milliers de moustiques du Kamtchatka affamés! —Elena Pakhalyuk

В сердце Камчатки
Не зря вулкан Бакенинг называют сердцем Камчатки – он прекрасен!! Словами не описать, это надо видеть! И это не зима, а июль. Настоящее ледяное озеро в кальдере вулкана! Чтобы увидеть эту красоту стоило пройти сложные перевали и многие километры по полям и лесам в компании тысячи голодных камчатских комаров! —Elena Pakhalyuk
