Palm Beach Illustrated April 2024 Issue

A note from Daphne Nikolopoulos, Editor in Chief, Palm Beach Illustrated

From cocktail parties to board meetings, everyone is talking about the changing face of Palm Beach. True, the influx of people from other parts of the country has grown exponentially since the pandemic, and our community has changed—but often for the better.

Case in point: among our many new neighbors are some very fascinating, accomplished, and generous individuals who are contributing to their new home in positive ways. People like Bobbi Brown and her husband, Steven Plofker, newish part-time residents of Palm Beach Gardens, are so bullish on this community that they’ve brought their first Jones Road store outside of the Northeast to Palm Beach. And if Jones Road’s opening party is any indication, Palm Beach is equally enamored.

In this month’s cover story, we talk with the woman behind the makeup empire, which she began in 1991 with Bobbi Brown Cosmetics (now owned by Estée Lauder) and recently reinvented with Jones Road. After a few hours in her presence, I found Bobbi to be a whip-smart entrepreneur but also a down-to-earth woman who knows exactly who she is—and walks her talk every day. Get to know her in “American Beauty,” starting on page 94.

Since April marks our annual look at health and well-being, we also feature a wealth of wellness content, starting with “20 Ways to be Happier.” Writer Paige Bowers talked to happiness coaches, therapists, and psychologists acriss South Florida to glean nuggets of advice and actionable plans for finding—and maintaining—your happy. Check out this information-packed story on page 116.

And if you’re a fan of our fashion features, you’re in for a treat. This month’s editorial, produced by fashion editor Katherine Lande and shot by Nick Mele, is a cheeky take on the social swan’s beauty and health regimen. Follow our “swan” around the clock for such daily musts as “beauty snacking” and “cardio”—in high fashion of course—beginning on page 108.

Here’s to the good, and healthy, life!
