Poised and Posed
To feel the vibe of this month’s cover shoot, think of a family reunion—then replace your favorite aunties with the three fierce, commanding women of A Wrinkle in Time. When the film’s stars got together, there was singing and there was dancing. And when Reese shimmied her shoulders to Michael Jackson’s “Don’t Stop ’Til You Get Enough,” Gayle King was all in. “All right, Reese,” Gayle hollered. “Work!”
Bring The Bling

Mindy submits to a touch-up.
On set, makeup that stays put is a must. Olay Regenerist Whip face moisturizer ($30; drugstores, Olay.com) is a super-lightweight, hydrating formula that preps skin and creates a camera-ready matte finish.

Reese’s key pieces: this trio of pretty Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color Moisturizing Lipsticks ($25 each; ElizabethArden.com).
It was no easy feat bringing to life A Wrinkle in Time’s intergalactic trio, who help a young heroine rescue her father and brother. Everything involved in creating the fantastical world of the three celestial guides—Mrs. Which (Oprah), Mrs. Whatsit (Reese Witherspoon), and Mrs. Who (Mindy Kaling)—reached epic proportions. Case in point: It took hundreds of pounds of hair to make the movie’s 50 wigs.
Oprah and director Ava DuVernay fun it up with two of the wigs designed by department head hairstylist Kim Kimble.
