7. What I’ve Learned From Dating Every Sign of the Zodiac
“Could it be that I’ve dated every freaking sign of the zodiac?” asked Vogue.com’s editor Chioma Nnadi in her contribution to our annual Love Stories series.

3. Timothée Chalamet on Paying Homage to Edward Scissorhands in the Coolest Super Bowl Ad of the Year
In February, Vogue’s Keaton Bell landed an interview with the Oscar nominee and Internet’s boyfriend about playing the role of Edgar (son of Edward) Scissorhands in a new Super Bowl ad for Cadillac. “Edward Scissorhands was a movie I adored growing up,” Chalamet told Bell, “and the opportunity to step into that world was a dream come.”
