THERE'S A NEW GAL IN TOWN, and new gal in tOwn it's brava—anD sHe's got a wHole new looK we're pretty excited for you to get to know her. She's got a fresh attitude, and seems like an awful lot of fun. She's fresh and youthful, yet sophisticated and confident. Smart and curious, even sometimes provocative, she's in the know, has a genuine interest in people and ideas, and always tries to keep it real. She's welcoming, thoughtful, witty and tastefully hip. Concerned, compassionate and engaged with the community, she's the kind of gal who embraces all that it means to be a woman in Madison. So meet her—the new BRAVA! In our months of redesigning the magazine, we've reimagined BRAVA as the most fun, interesting and inspiring girlfriend we could think of—a personality we'd all enjoy spending time with. And so, with all her character aspirations in mind, we've infused that gal into the magazine. Designed in a breezier format that's easy to navigate in the midst of your busy life, the new BRAVA is bursting with ideas you can put into action. The "Connect" department serves to engage us all more deeply with Madison and with each other. You'll meet women + + women style substance On the COver Kelly mcelwain photographed by todd maughan at the madison enterprise center Make a Statement making things happen here, learn more about the latest around town, and have a forum for sharing your opinions and ideas, whether they're thought-provoking or just plain fun. Think of the "Thrive" department as your go-to resource, a collection of ideas and advice for inspired living. Drawn from local experts—and from women just like you—in "Thrive" you'll find creative tips and advice on everything from fashion, beauty, style, health and wellbeing, to home design and décor, gardens and entertaining. "Go + Do" is all about having even more fun in Madison. It offers you easy jaunts around and out of town; restaurants worth trying; local fare to savor in this foodie's heaven; and a don't-miss calendar of the arts and cultural events that entertain and so deeply enrich us. Though we're infusing some new personality into the magazine, many aspects of BRAVA will remain the same. Celebrating the energy and vision of Madison women has always been the driving force of the magazine. BRAVA will continue to applaud their contributions toward making Madison such a vibrant place to dwell. Spend some time with this new gal, the reimagined, redesigned, relaunched BRAVA. We hope you'll like her as much as we do. New look, new vision, new BRAVA! >Edgy trEnds Sheers, studs, leather— fall fashion is in the details >hot topic Lean in? Lean out?
