Top Dog • Oprah isn’t one to play favorites with her furry family members. But let’s just say this isn’t 11-year-old Sadie’s first cover-shoot rodeo. And this month her modeling career reached new heights as she snuggled on Oprah’s shoulders for a stroll. “Sadie’s getting a doggyback ride,” said Oprah, who drove through a blizzard with Stedman to adopt the cocker spaniel as a puppy. Carrying her cover costar gave Oprah a bit of a workout. As for Sadie? “You’re not getting paid for this,” Oprah joked. Well, maybe in treats.

On the Cold Front • Step into fall with great-looking boots (from sassy over-the-knees to cool combats), then wrap things up with outstanding outerwear (from fresh puffers to plaids with panache).
GET SURREAL • Compacts designed to resemble rippling water, a dramatically arched mascara that appears to have been plucked from a Dalí painting—the debut collection from Byredo Makeup ($30 to $96; byredo.com) is audacious by design. And the visionaries behind the brand, known for its genderless indie fragrances, want you to be just as daring when wearing the products: Dab one of the 16 color sticks on your eyes, lips, or cheeks, or use your fingers to smear shadows in varying finishes (from matte to metallic) over your lids.
