ARE YOU SITTING COMFORTABLY FOR
UNCOMFORTABLE VIEWING?
he future has arrived ? do you know how we know?
Because, a few years ago, we?d turn to Black Mirror for
dystopian, sci-i thrills, but the arrival of Channel 4?s
he Circle last week hammered home that ? actually
? we?re living through that frightening future right
now. In the show, contestants battle it out for �k by
creating an online persona that they use to befriend
(and even woo) each other so they get highly rated.
Kudos to the show for raising awareness about the
dangers of social media: catishing, the shallowness
of online dating and questions of deceit are all
addressed. But when did reality turn into a dystopian
gameshow? We?re inding it too close for comfort.

woman can only spend so long bent
over a laptop like Gollum before she has
to accept that maybe a back bend might
be a good idea ater all.
So I did the hol, and now I feel great
? grudgingly, but deinitely. Better yet,
having accidentally iniltrated the yoga
?community? on this ?retreat?, I discovered
something that might just undermine the
smugity of the entire yoga scene for ever!
Something which could force hat Lot to
accept that this thing they do once, twice,
three times a week, isn?t really any more
spiritual than a sesh up Barry?s Bootcamp.
And I?m going Deep hroat on it.
It would appear that ?namaste? ? a
word used to formally close most classes
alongside a genulection and a prayer;
a word that has spawned a thousand
T-shirts, tote bags, tatts (and one emoji)
? that word doesn?t mean what everyone
thinks it means. It is not the Sanskrit
for a sort of epic ?hank you?. Nor is it
a declaration of a deeper self-love. It is
not the yogic equivalent of #blessed, it is
not the acknowledgement of a profound,
unchanging connection with our world.
It doesn?t even mean ?peace?. Namaste just
means ?Hello? ? nothing more, nothing
less, certainly nothing spiritual. It?s also
a singularly inappropriate thing to say
to the people with whom you?ve just
spent an hour, shortly before you take
your leave of ?em. I?d tell you to stick
that up your Child?s Pose and smoke
it, if I weren?t feeling so zen ? which
presumably actually means ?chin-chin?,
or ?night night? or ?pass the salt?, anyway.
Don?t you start; no one was more surprised
than me. Have you seen yoga? Women in
too-spenny Lycra paying 17 quid a pop to

She came, we saw, she conquered. Last week,
Victoria Beckham celebrated 10 years as a
designer with a knockout show at London
Fashion Week. Grazia?s Rebecca Lowthorpe
meets the artist known as VB...

very, very quickly?

foot on the gas?

GRAZIA
IN T E RV I E

?WHAT HAVE I LEARNED over the
last 10 years? Oh my God, so much. hat
I love what I do, I love my job, and I love
women.? So said Victoria Beckham,
moments ater presenting her spring/
summer ?19 collection last week, for
the irst time in London.
he designer skittered across the catwalk
in heels ? ?hought I better make an efort
today? ? and wearing pieces from her
collection, including a beige tailored jacket
and skinny trousers slit up the front to reveal
her strappy sandals. She grabbed a chair,
perched daintily on it, leant forward and
beamed. ?Adrenalin?s pumping,? she gasped.
Victoria had just delivered what was
roundly applauded by fashion critics as one
of, if not her best collection to date. ?his
season was about celebrating women,? she
said. ?It wasn?t about who is the woman
[the question she normally asks], it?s about
all women, my customers, and creating
a collection they could really relate to.?
hat meant grown-up, sophisticated,
elegant clothes with just the right touch
of fashion forwardness. ?We?ve built
lots of strong codes over the last 10 years
? masculine versus feminine, the colour
palette which, this time, was inspired by
Nicola Tyson, a British contemporary
artist. I love how she sees colour.? But
those strong codes of VB?s have never yet
included such a diverse casting. Cue Stella
Tennant, 47, opening the show in an ivory
lace camisole, jacket shrugged on and
slouchy trousers that pooled over her
slip-on loafers. ?I had to pinch myself
because she?s a model that I?ve always
loved, respected and admired. She?s also
got kids, she?s real, relatable and I?m so
thankful she said yes to opening the show.?
According to Victoria, Stella felt great in
her trouser suit. ?Women should feel great
in clothes at any age, let?s face it.?
Stella wasn?t the only mature model
walking in Victoria?s show ? Tasha Tilberg
and Liya Kebede (39 and 40, respectively)
took to the runway, so was this a sign that
Victoria wanted to address the age issue
? largely invisible on the runways, in
magazines and on billboards? ?I think it
shows how I?ve grown as well,? she mused
on her own conidence, as someone who
has matured in an industry that has, up
until recently, been all about celebrating
youth. ?I?ve had to learn very, very quickly.
Most importantly, about my customer.

the kids are here and it?s great for them to see
what I do. My sister?s kids were here, too, and
they?ve never seen what I do. I?ve got family
members that have never seen what I do!?
I wonder if they have delivered their

Victoria matter-of-factly.
So how does she feel, having conquered
the fashion world? ?You know, I feel

IS ROYAL LIFE
?ISOLATING?
MEGHAN?

AS MEGHAN MARKLE last week
hosted her irst solo venture as a royal ?
the launch of community cookbook
Together, created to raise money for
Grenfell victims, at Kensington Palace
? she was the picture of poise and
perfection. With Prince Harry at her side
and a surprise appearance from her
mother, Doria, who had lown in from Los
Angeles, the day was a resounding success.
Yet her outing came in the wake of
reports that her new life as HRH he
Duchess of Sussex was making her feel
increasingly isolated and lonely.
People magazine in the States last
week ran a cover story with the headline:
?Meghan, Grace Under Pressure?, detailing
how she is coping with her new role and
how she has had to cut ties with most
of her former friends.
Just days later, one of Princess Diana?s
former conidantes, Lady Colin Campbell,
then claimed that Meghan, 37, was ?too
lety? in her political views for 34-year-old
Harry?s friends and had alienated herself Above: Meghan

from many of them, claiming: ?Everybody
realises ater marrying into the royal family
how solitary and arduous an existence
it can be. Meghan has already begun to
discover this.?
Indeed, sources have told Grazia that
while Meghan is undoubtedly handling
her new role perfectly in public, behind
the scenes there are diicult times. ?Losing
touch with close personal friends has been
a bittersweet reality for Meghan since
oicially becoming a royal,? said a source.
?Not just because of the geographical aspect
of where her new life is, but she?s also
had to take a forensic

might betray her trust
?Mutual friends of
both hers and Harry,
people like Markus
Anderson, she?s still
in touch with, but
most of the others
outside of that circle,
who Meghan once
had on speed-dial, hav
found they are unable
to directly reach out
to her now.?
It is well-known
within royal circles th

Harry. Below: with

Gina Torres in 2013
when you marry into ?he Firm?, friends can
ind themselves culled. One former close
friend of Kate Middleton told Grazia:
?Once things got serious with William,
many friends started falling by the wayside,
with phone calls and messages unanswered.
It was sad, but everyone understood.?
Speaking to Grazia last week, the
ecretary, Dickie
, ?Meghan has

y all the time ? if
y?re not out on the
d, they?re gearing
for the next
gagement. he
als are very careful
about who they socialise with because
people are very quick to blab. here is a
nucleus of friends who are very close.
?Meghan?s free spirit has been somewhat
clipped because of what she?s married into,
but it gets better as you get used to it.?
It hasn?t helped that the last six months
have been overshadowed by the ?Markle
debacle? ? with various members of
Meghan?s family, mainly her father,
homas, speaking out in the press in
criticism. To add to the drama, last week
homas gave an interview claiming he was
being targeted with kidnap and death
threats. All this has made for what seems
like a lonely three months since her
wedding on 19 May.
?What has been striking for Meghan
is the loneliness she has felt since joining
he Firm and how isolating it can be
at times,? continued our source. ?Her
summer at the remote Castle of Mey in
Scotland was quite a shock. She used to
be impulsive and adventurous when it
came to her summer vacations, oten
running of to exotic locations with her
close friends. But a lot of these friends she
is now no longer in close contact with.?
One person Meghan is clearly still
close to is her mother, social worker and
yoga teacher Doria, 62, whose calm
presence at her side last week was clearly
comforting for the Duchess of Sussex.
As previously reported in Grazia, sources
have claimed that Meghan is hoping her
mother might spend more time in the
UK to support her.
?It would mean so much to have her
mother on-hand,? said a source.

with such a heritage, you take a risk,? said
Riccardo Tisci backstage, having just
delivered his reinvention of Burberry.
It was one of the most hotly anticipated
shows of the week, with one of the most
surprising outcomes. here were no
celebrities. Indeed, rumours of the
Kardashians making an appearance and
Lil? Kim doing a work placement at the
brand turned out to be entirely unfounded.
It was an unexpectedly quiet experience.
In front of the fashion industry and his
mother, who sat tearfully proud on the
front row, Tisci, an Italian designer who
previously helmed Givenchy and is known
for his dark, gothic edge, sent out a
sweeping vision of some 120 looks that
repositioned Burberry as a sophisticated,
outward-looking, all-age-encompassing,
internationally spirited brand. In other
words, as far away from Burberry?s hitherto
eccentric British aristo image as it is
possible to get. He called it Kingdom ????? ??????????? ?????? "What's News" VK.COM/WSNWS

and divided it into three acts: irst, under
the banner ?Reined?, he rifed on the
trench ? of course ? but in the most
polished bourgeois fashion, all nipped
waists, new-logo-print blouses, beige
trouser suits, polite skirts and pearls. His
?Evening? section took the form of sinuous
black columns, some trimmed with gold
fringe. But it was the middle chapter,
?Relaxed?, a mash-up of British youthquake
with Shakespeare quotes, Sex Pistols logos,
Victoriana and bondage that prompted
the question: what is British fashion now?
Particularly the sight of models wearing
European passport holders around their
necks ? Tisci?s comment on Brexit?
It is impossible to quantify British
fashion now ? but that?s the beauty of it. A
creative hotbed? For sure. A head-spinning
display of ideas about what women might
want to wear? No doubt about it. An
industry worth billions to Britain? hat
too. here is no algorithm to compute the
Kingdom that is London Fashion Week,
but if I had to sum it up in three parts:
Establishment, Punk and Party.
For Establishment, read designers who
have long found their groove and remain
faithful in inding new ways to update and
reine the women they serve. Victoria
Beckham is that designer. She has been
cultivating herself and her brand for a
decade, as demonstrated in her irst show
at London Fashion Week, which happened
to be her best collection to date ? of which
more, on page 18. Mary Katrantzou also
held her 10th anniversary show and
displayed her impeccable skill for intricate
couture-level pieces, each one recalling one
of her former collections ? from Faberg�
eggs to postage stamps. As the curtain
went up on her inal� installation, her
magniicent mannequins looked like
museum-worthy collectors? pieces.
he Establishment is our largest group
as our once young disruptors have grown
up and proven themselves with thriving
businesses. Erdem Moralioglu and
Roksanda Ilincic sit side by side, both in
time earning their stripes, rock-solid
reputations and stores in Mayfair. Erdem
with his historical narratives ? this time
based on Frederick Park and Ernest Boulton,
aka Stella and Fanny, who lived as women
in the 1860s ? was held in the National
Portrait Gallery and made you marvel at
his ability to conjure clothes that would
not look out of place in any of the ancient
paintings, while still resonating with
modern-minded women of today.
Roksanda, meanwhile, took her
usual artist-as-inspiration theme
? this time Corbusier?s line
drawings used as embroideries
and prints ? and applied

Perfection here was an apricot cotton
shirt-waister with voluminous sleeves
and burgundy ribbon bows. In fact,
pretty much all of it was perfection.
Add to this group Ports 1961, where
Natasa Cagalj is really hitting her stride
in a post-Phoebe Celine world, and Roland
Mouret, who showed on top of the windy
National heatre ? all the better to see
things like a mac unfurl in the breeze to
reveal that its satin pleats were inlayed
with ine lace. And Hussein Chalayan, who
showed at his usual haunt, Sadler?s Wells,
proving once again how masterful and
wearable his tailoring is. All is conceptual
with Hussein, but as he always says, ?You
don?t need to know that.? Just wear it, was
the message reverberating through the
charcoal trouser suits. he big diference
between Chalayan and JW Anderson is
not just years ? Hussein has been in
business since 1994, JW since 2008 ? it?s
the mighty conglomerate (LVMH) behind

Goddards or Matty Bovans. Molly, already
past the post with her hallmarked look of
big, frothy, girly-in-a-good-way dresses.
And Matty, another prodigious talent,
whose towering headdresses of recycled
rubbish and voluminous multi-textured,
multi-patterned ball gowns also gave us
the recycled/sustainability wow factor.
And inally, the Party section. As in,
clothes that say good times and going
out. Perhaps it?s wishful thinking in these
uncertain times but, if British designers
have got anything to do with it, you will go
out, you will have fun, and you will look
fucking fabulous while doing so. From the
glittering eveningwear at Michael Halpern,
aka the Master of Sequins, and the
?70s-vibe cocktail dresses at Peter Pilotto,
to the dreamy romantic rules at Preen
and classic elegance of Emilia Wickstead.
Last word on the joy of clothes ? and the
mood of London Fashion Week ? goes to
Richard Quinn. No Queen

Not that they appeared at Simone Rocha?s
beautiful show. Another with a punk
spirit. Rebellion can come in many guises;
hers in the form of delicate, undulating
layers of lace, net and satin, topped with
veiled hats and inished with ierce (in
the sense of fabulous) lat shoes sprouting
feathers. Her sombre procession in black,
red and white was an ode to her family
and team and has never looked lovelier.
As for the new guard of punk spirit, it
can appear studenty, raw, unwearable and
quite oten plain ugly, but it?s important
? vital, in fact ? in providing fuel to drive
Britain?s creative fashion force. See Fashion

and the trio of just-graduated designers
who showed there. It?s too early to tell if
these green shoots will sprout into Molly

Amid the noisy hype of wantin
it all, Fiona Cowood says there?
nothing wrong with shunning
the quest for the top job
RUTH DAVIDSON, leader
of the Scottish Tories, made
headlines last week, thanks to an
interview she gave in which she
did several decidedly non-politiciany
things. She danced, swore, revealed the
self-harm scars on her forearms, talked
about her fears at becoming a mum for the
irst time and said she deinitely doesn?t
want to be Prime Minister. Why? ?I value
my relationship and my mental health too
much for it,? explained Davidson.
Talk about refreshing. It can oten feel
like you?re letting the gender side down if
you dare to admit that the top job is not
the one you?re coveting. If you?re not
?side-hustling?, ?slaying?, or aggressively
asking your Instagram followers ?who runs
the world?? at 6am on a Monday morning,
then you can feel a bit, well, lame.
When I resigned from my job as
assistant editor of this magazine, I oten
joked that I was ?leaning out? ? going
against Sheryl Sandberg?s zeitgeist-deining
advice. It turned out that my ambition
didn?t outweigh the reality of a husband
working away during the week, two kids
needing to be taken to and collected from
two diferent places, and two hours of daily
commuting. I loved my job but I had too
much on my plate; I?d reached my limit ?
or ?peak frazzle?, as I called it at the time.
Urging women to ?know their limits?
sounds desperately unfeminist and outdated,
but isn?t there something radical about
knowing yourself and excusing yourself from
situations that aren?t doing you any good?
Isn?t there something brave in deciding you
don?t care if you look unambitious or weak
to your peers who are somehow managing
to do what you can?t seem to? hat being
happier is more valid than a job title?
It goes without saying that every
individual?s limit is diferent. I have a
friend who says yes to every opportunity
that comes her way. A lick through her
diary makes me feel queasy, yet she
navigates the day job with podcast and
panel appearances and three children
without breaking a sweat.
Ruth Davidson is clearly another ?natural
stamina? type who needn?t worry about her
track record or what others think of her. She
revived the Scottish Conservatives from
near extinction and became the irst openly
gay ? and now pregnant ? party leader, all
while polling as the ?most popular senior
Tory? among party members. But having
previously sufered a mental breakdown and
years of self-harm, she knows herself too
well ? and values her health and happiness
too much ? to want to convert that
popularity into Prime Ministerial power.
hat, she says, would be her limit.
?At the end of the day you just have to be
yourself and do the best job you can and let
other people think of you what they will.
And there is a freedom in that,? Davidson
told the broadsheet newspaper.
So let?s hear it for the women (and men)
who?ve climbed halfway up the mountain,
spied the summit and thought, ?Naaaah,
I?m alright here, thanks.? We still get the
view, you know.

THE CHOICE OF Buckingham
Palace as the scene of an
impromptu serenade, delivered
from ianc� to ianc閑, felt particularly
apt for Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin.
In the short months of their engagement
thus far, they have told a frame-by-frame
narrative, deployed through the numerous
media portals over which they have come
to rule during their individual rises to
public pre-eminence. Where better than
the royal palace to announce the crowning
moment when JustWin became the First
Couple of the digital age?
When Justin, 24, was preparing for re-entry
to the pop world with his multimillionselling, Grammy-nominated Purpose album
? the title of which was lovingly daubed on
his guitar last week ? I interviewed him for
iD magazine and mentioned that Hailey,
21, and several of her Insta-famous friends
had sworn he?d be back, bigger and better
than ever. ?Isn?t Hailey just the best?? he
said. It?s still there online, the irst time he
expressed his afection for her to the world.
he scorching attraction of pop stars
and models is nothing new. You can trace
the mesmerising pattern back to several
Rolling Stones in the ?60s, through Rod
Stewart and Bryan Ferry in the ?70s, Duran
Duran in the ?80s, Bowie inally settling
down with Iman in the ?90s, right up
to a scintillating current crop of global
playboys and supergirls, numbering Harry
Styles, Cara Delevingne, Calvin Harris
and Kendal Jenner among them. Until
now, Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik reigned
supreme over this diaphanous meeting
of the gorgeous, international, monied,
young and horny. No longer. here is a new
prince and princess elect: the JustWins.
Where these trysts can sometimes look
acquisitive, the selection of trophies for the
cabinet, there is something hotwired in Justin
and Hailey to the clumsy mania of the world
that has selected them. From the moment
the whistle blew on their true romance,
you, the casual observer, braced yourself
for the dramas that inevitably lay ahead.
Love among the elite in 2018 is no
longer about velvet ropes and maximising
privacy. It?s oversharing your God leanings
on Twitter, then feeling so overcome by the
power of raw emotion you feel compelled
to busk it on the street. Tom Cruise?s
jumping up and down on a chat-show
sofa suddenly has a fragrant new rival.
hrough Hailey, the whip-smart beauty
connected directly to a major Hollywood
dynasty, a Liz Taylor-ish re-entry point
has found its starting gun. his rollercoaster has barely reached its irst peak.
Already, it is an afair to remember. A
JustWin-win situation for everyone to
pass around the parlour. It is gossip
central, writ large. Let playtime commence.

Streets ahead:
the styling tricks
to try now
BLOW THE WHISTLE! We are now
over halfway through fashion month
(New York and London Fashion Weeks
are done, Milan is just done, and Paris
is up next). And half time, as you well
know, calls for an action replay; a moment
to assess and digest the style tricks, twists
and tactics we?ve seen so far ? not just
on the catwalk, but of it as well.
It?s understandable if you think that
fashion week is the perfect excuse to
ignore the old adage that it?s not what
you wear but how you wear it (isn?t fashion
week all about what ? or should we say
?who? ? you are wearing?), but the best
street-style pictures from New York
and London would suggest otherwise.
If designers propose their pure, uniltered
artistic vision on the catwalk, then show
attendees ofer a masterclass in how these
trends can be tweaked and translated
into real life. Observing how things are
being worn by the FROW is a telling gauge
of the styling tricks that are most likely to
gain traction with the rest of us this season.
So far, we?ve seen fashion insiders
in New York and London pledge their
allegiance to print, going all in with
clashing, head-to-toe patterns. Not that
complete commitment to a colour, patte
or print is necessarily lairy ? see: muted
leopard and contrasting brown shades.
Indeed, proving that subtle can still be
efective in this most peacocky of
environments, accessory switch-ups can
transition any look into of-the-moment
territory. he added bonus? Carrying
your bag in an unexpected way, say, or
nabbing a new pair of socks, shows that
a new-season update does not have to
mean a new mortgage (though if you
are looking to splurge: Celine?s initial
necklaces, Dior?s rebooted Saddle
Bag and Chanel?s Velcro sandals are
as ubiquitous on the FROW right
now as sunglasses, just-back-fromthe-Amali-Coast tans and Chaos
monogrammed iPhones).
Whether you are a sartorial showof or an under-the-radar dresser, we
can all agree on one thing: you don?t
want to be unfashionably late when it
comes to trying a trend. Here are the
ive styling twists to try now.

OF BECOMING YOUR NEW COMEDY
Rhiannon Evans meets
the stars of the TV
show spawned from
a Grazia column
TOILET HOOK-UPS, IVF played for
laughs and a very awkward meet-up with
an ex ? and that?s just the opening scenes
of Sharon Horgan?s newest comedy
creation, Women On he Verge.
Reminiscent of Midas-like Horgan?s
irst big hit and cult fave, Pulling, WOTV
inds three women muddling through
lives that they never expected to lead.
hey?re 30-somethings who?ve deinitely
not got it all, are quite mifed at anyone
who has it, and believe that they just need
to get at least part of it, and it?ll all be ine
? whether that?s a baby, a boyfriend who?s
not your married boss, or a family with
a man you can barely stand.
It?s a very ?2018? show, even though the
original seed of the idea started in this very
magazine more than a decade ago, with
journalist Lorna Martin?s column,
Conversations With My herapist. he
book that followed, Woman On he Verge
Of A Nervous Breakdown, was picked up
by Horgan and her Merman production
company, who worked with Lorna to
turn it into the series, out next month.
It?s easy to see the common thread
it shares with other Horgan/Merman
smash-hits like Catastrophe, Motherland
and Divorce ? playing uncomfortably
relatable scenarios for laughs, oten
female scenarios that have previously
been missing from the small screen.
?Find me anyone in the world whose
life is going to plan,? says Nina Sosanya,
the show?s divorced mother Katie, who
starts the show in stirrups, about to
undergo artiicial insemination. ?It?s
always nice to recognise things you?re
going through yourself in a show, and
sometimes it?s nice to see people who are
maybe not handling it as well as you are!?
Most trainwreckingly not handling it
is lead character Laura (played by Kerry
Condon), who swerves from cringeinducing disaster to disaster in the irst
episode, before inally (unintentionally)
booking in to see therapist Dr Fitzgerald,
played by Horgan. ?Laura is lawed, for
sure, and there were initial concerns about
whether she?d be unlikeable,? admits Kerry.

coping. I also like that, with the
friendships, they don?t get on with each
other all the time. hat bit of bitching is
true to life and I admired the honesty.?
Based in Dublin, the show is set to join
the canon of great Irish comedy ? and
funny Irish women. Eileen Walsh, whose
character Alison is desperate to start a
family, whatever it takes, tells Grazia: ?I
love that the show is set in Dublin. My irst
day of ilming was the day of the Repeal
vote, and you could feel that energy. It was
such an important time. And again, it?s
about women being allowed to fuck up
and make choices. hat?s what makes them
human ? that?s what this show celebrates.?
Writer Lorna Martin
tells us how it feels to
put your life on screen
During my mid-to-late-thirties,
when my Grazia column and book came
out, it felt very exposing. I spent quite
a lot of time afterwards questioning
why I had chosen to lay myself bare
and put all my ?aws and failings out
there. In hindsight, it was quite selfdestructive ? almost an act of public
self-?agellation. Maybe my Catholic
roots had something to do with that.
With the TV series, so many people
are involved in bringing a script to the
screen. As soon as actors become a
character, the whole thing takes on
a life of its own, so, bizarrely, it doesn?t
really feel like my life on screen any more.
Saying that, there were some parts that
were painful to write ? and watch.
Sharon Horgan and I co-created
the show, co-wrote the ?rst episode,
and I wrote the other ?ve episodes
myself. We wanted to show the
sometimes messy, sometimes painful,
often tragi-comic reality of life for women
in their mid-to-late-thirties. Women are
bombarded with so many messages
about what they should be, how they
should behave and what will make them
happy. I think it?s really destructive and
makes a lot of girls and women feel
miserable and inadequate.
The show is intended to be a love
letter to women who haven?t ticked all the
boxes. But it?s also about women starting
to ask: wait a minute, who drew these
boxes, anyway? Who decided this is the
way to live happily ever after? Though I
think things are changing, many women
grow up surrounded by a romantic
narrative, that myth that there is some
magical person out there, a soulmate,
The One, who will save us, protect us,
complete us. But this is a myth. It took me
a long time to realise that no one can do
that ? not a partner, nor children. It?s our
responsibility to challenge the messages
our culture bombards us with, to risk
failure and criticism, but to ?nd a way to
become who we?re meant to be, rather
than who and what society wants us to be.

THE RE-REINVENTION
OF LADY GAGA
Ater a dramatic few years ? album lops, axed tours,
health scares and a failed romance ? Lady Gaga was almost
written of. But now, as she?s tipped for Oscar glory for
A Star Is Born, Louise Gannon reveals why she?ll never fail
?I HAVE ALWAYS known I was born a
star,? Lady Gaga told me the very irst time
I met her. ?My greatest fear is that people
will stop believing in me. So it?s my job
to keep on believing.?
hose words ? spoken when she was just
22 ? could not have been more prophetic
in the very up and very, very down rollercoaster ride of Stefani Germanotta?s career.
Right now, the 32-year-old could not
be hotter, tipped to win an Oscar for her
big-screen debut, the remake of the classic
Barbra Streisand movie A Star Is Born.
But the ilm?s co-star and director, Bradley
Cooper, was told he was ?insane? to
ofer the part to the singer, whose stellar
career was in freefall ater two lop albums,
a humiliating series of axed tour dates
and a personal life in crisis with several
health scares and the demise of her
ive-year relationship with her former
ianc�, the actor Taylor Kinney.
Cooper makes his directorial debut
with the story of a struggling young singer
(Ally, played by Gaga) who falls in love
with a huge music star ( Jackson, played by
Cooper), but as her career takes of their
afair crashes as Jackson?s demons consume

them both. He insisted ? ater just one
screen test in which he wiped every scrap
of make-up from her face ? the only
person who could take on Streisand?s
iconic role was Gaga.
One of her team says: ?Bradley knew
that this was the role only Stefani could
play, not just because the storyline has so
much resonance for her personally, but
also because she needed to prove herself.
?On the irst day they met for the screen
test he saw that determination she?s always
had, he saw the talent, he saw the pain and
that?s when he knew she was going to give
absolutely everything she had. And she did.?
I saw exactly what Cooper saw in Gaga?s
face that very irst time we met in a dingy
upstairs studio on her irst trip to Britain.
She was ? of course ? covered in dramatic
make-up and wearing a bizarre catsuit that
was her homage to her hero, David Bowie,
but it was right at the beginning of her
dizzy rise and she was a 22-year-old girl
with a big point to prove.
?Everything I do, everything I say,
everything I wear is to get a reaction,?
she told me. ?People are going to love me
or hate me, but they cannot ignore me.
I absolutely won?t let them.?
I asked her why she liked Bowie so much
and she laughed: ?He was an artist and he
was all about reinvention. hat?s why I like
Andy Warhol and Madonna, they knew
how to keep coming back.?
he following year I watched her rehearse
her performance for the 2010 BRIT
Awards. She was wearing black leggings,
a black T-shirt and barely any make-up and
she sat at the piano and sang Telephone. It
was a mesmerising, perfect moment. ?I bet
you didn?t think I could actually play,? she
said to me as she let the stage.
A few years later, in New York, just
shortly ater she?d arrived at the Grammys
in an egg, it was obvious her desire to get a
reaction was about to overtake the genuine
talent of a woman who wrote songs like
Born his Way and Poker Face. Fast forward
a few more years, I saw her in Bologna ?
when she was earning an estimated $100
million dollars a year ? and she didn?t seem
so happy. She no longer had to prove
herself, she was one of the biggest female
artists in the world. ?he best bit about the
early days was the challenge of no one else
believing,? she told me.
And then it all imploded with two
lop albums (one of duets with Tony
Bennett called Cheek To Cheek and poor
sales with her ith album Joanne, which
sold just one million compared to her
15 million-selling debut). Her relationship
with Kinney ended in 2016 ater she
admitted it had self-destructed into
non-stop ights. ?My weakness is never
being able to make relationships work,?
she told me a few years before. She talked
about leaving the industry, began acting
in a couple of Netlix series, and admitted
to friends she was ?lost?.
But Gaga was never going to disappear.
What she needed most was a challenge
and the prospect of taking a massive
risk ? which Cooper has given her. Funny
thing is, back in 2008 I told her she
reminded me of Barbra Streisand. She
gave me a hard stare, looked in the mirror
and said: ?Well she?s one of the biggest
superstars of all time isn?t she? So, I?ll
take that as a compliment.?
It could be her greatest move yet.

IN NEARLY ALL messy break-ups, there?s
THE SPLIT
DIVIDING
HOLLYWOOD
9
46
Justin with pals including Sienna Miller and
Emma Stone; Jen and Justin in August
2017; Jen with Ted Sarandos last week
run-in, by reportedly arriving at TV host
Jimmy Kimmel?s son?s birthday party 40
minutes apart, with Justin said to have made
a run for it before Jen even got to the door.
So, who is ?Team Jen? and who is ?Team
Justin?? Since the split, we?ve seen Jen hang
with her classic Hollywood scene of
conidants including the likes of Jimmy?s
wife Molly McNearney, Courteney Cox,
Ellen DeGeneres, Jason Bateman and his
wife Amanda Anka, Adam Sandler and
even George Clooney, who she visited at
his Lake Como villa last month.
Meanwhile, our insider adds that it
is Justin who has taken the initiative
of surrounding himself with his young
Hollywood crowd who are not so connected
to Jen ? stars like Emma Stone, Sienna Miller
and Aubrey Plaza ? to create some necessary
space. ?Justin is aware that Jen is being quite
territorial when it comes to her clique, and
he?s certainly been enjoying his single life
with his new friends. But there are some
people who remain caught between the two,
like actor Paul Rudd, who is very fond of Jen
but is still very close to Justin. Everyone
involved is hoping that over time this is
going to be less of a thorny issue,? we?re told.
Of course, there?s still the question of
whether the pair will ever be able to settle
their ?divorce? amicably, because of persistent
rumours that they might not actually be
legally married. No record of a marriage
licence for their 2015 backyard wedding has
been found, and there were conlicting reports
over who oiciated, if anyone did at all.
So, we?re calling it ? right now there?s
probably more chance of a Friends reunion
than for Jen and Justin to be in the same
room anytime soon.

JEN & JUSTIN:
the unenviable task of dividing up friends.
his becomes even more precarious when
you?re a Hollywood superstar with an
A-list squad to disassemble. Take Jennifer
Aniston and ex Justin heroux, who
Grazia learns purposefully eluded one
another at a showbiz bash in Los Angeles
last week, in an efort to avoid a very
awkward confrontation.
Jennifer, 49, was seen posing with
Netlix?s chief content oicer Ted Sarandos
at his Emmy nominee party, but curiously
Justin, 47, was nowhere to be seen at the
event, despite him starring in the streaming
giant?s big new drama Maniac with Emma
Stone. And insiders say that keeping the
former couple apart is quickly becoming
a logistical nightmare ? not just for those
working headsets and clipboards on the red
carpets, but also for their famous friends.
?Jen made it clear that she would prefer
that Justin was not in attendance,? a source
informs Grazia. ?It?s an ongoing headache
for their respective teams as Jen is doing
increasingly more TV work on Netlix and
so their paths are inevitably entwined going
forward. But their mutual friends also play
a key role in all of this because they?ll be
showing who has remained loyal to who,
especially when they?re out on the showbiz
party circuit in the months to come.?
Jen and Just announced their separation
in February, ater nearly seven years
together, at the time pledging to continue
their ?cherished friendship?. However, with
rumblings of behind-the-scenes drama
(Grazia previously reported how they are
yet to settle their inancial arrangements),
it appears the atmosphere has been less than
chummy. In April, they avoided an actual

?CHILDBIRTH OVERSHARING HAS
A senior academic warned last week that sites such as
Mumsnet are contributing to a rise in phobia of giving
birth, while Emma hompson says we?re being lied to about
labour pain. For Ethanie Jackson-Turner, it?s all too much
?ARE YOU EVEN trying for babies??
is the constant question I?m faced with.
It?s no surprise; as a married 32-year-old
homeowner, I?m at the prime-for-babies
stage of life. But for me, these comments
provoke more than a Millennial eye roll
? because I am terriied of childbirth.
Despite growing up the daughter of
a midwife who told me of the beautiful
life-changing moment women brought
their children into the world, recently my
fear has reached new heights ? and it?s
largely down to seeing stories of traumatic
births everywhere on social media.
Last week, Catriona Jones, a lecturer
in midwifery at the University of Hull,
claimed that googling ?childbirth? led to a
?tsunami of horror stories?, and that social
media is creating a rise in tokophobia (the
pathological fear of childbirth). Many
commentators hit back, claiming this
48
was closing down helpful discussions
between supportive female networks
? but for me, Jones?s assertions were true.
Mummy bloggers, mummy microbloggers? everyone is obsessed with
?speaking up?; removing the taboo associated
with telling ?the truth behind childbirth?.
And as horriied as the stories make me, I
can?t look away. Celebrities only exacerbate
this. In September?s US Vogue, Beyonc�
discussed her experience of pre-eclampsia,
while Serena Williams shared her neardeath birth experience. hen Harry Kane
recently caused controversy by praising his
ianc閑 for giving birth without pain relief.
Yes, every woman is diferent, so every
birth will be diferent ? I know that
rationally. But that doesn?t stop the
comparisons we make. And when I read
these women?s stories, images of the
multitude of complications that could
happen during childbirth lood my mind.
Last week, Emma hompson waded into
the debate when she said women like
myself are being lied to about the pain of
childbirth, making us ?terriied of that pain?,
which she feels leads to ?an awful lot of
elective C-sections?. I understand this point
of view ? but I oten think that one way of
controlling my fear would be by electing
for a Caesarian. But what if I?m refused?
A recent study revealed 75% of maternity
units are refusing elective C-sections.
Consultant midwife at UCLH, Dr Yana
Richens OBE, says she wants women to
discuss their fears and she would never say
no to a C-section. ?If, as the pregnancy
progresses, her fears lessen, she can change
her mind. If they stay the same, we have a
plan. hat?s really important for women
to hold on to.? Still, she agrees oversharing
across social media has been instrumental
in the rise in women?s fears. ?It?s OK to
share among women, but it?s funny when
you start involving the whole world. A
woman starts to question herself.?
Being scared of birth is the only reason
I haven?t even started trying for a family of
my own. I oten apologise to my husband
for not being ready yet, guilty that, because
of my fears, he hasn?t got what he?s wanted
since we married ive years ago. Because I
so want it too. I just wish I could hit mute
on all these stories I?ve seen. But I can?t.

THE TAKE
EDIE
CAMPBELL:
? WE NEED
MORE
PROTECTION
FOR MODELS?
hey?re still routinely expected to strip of in front
of a scrum of people backstage, but now the British
super is calling for private changing areas for models
WORDS L AUR A ANTONIA JORDAN
????? ??????????? ?????? "What's News" VK.COM/WSNWS
Above: Edie has been
outspoken on the
fashion industry?s
power imbalances
FASHION IS AN industry of two sides:
the glossy, aspirational outer shell of fantasies
brought to life; and the blood, sweat and
safety pins that go into manufacturing those
dreams. Nowhere can you see that contrast
more starkly than at a fashion show. On the
catwalk, the model might be queen (for a
moment) ? strutting, slinking, selling us the
girl we all want to be. But backstage she is
a cog in a huge machine, some of which
function more eiciently than others.
A list of the people you will typically
ind backstage: the designer, the design
team, stylists, hair and make-up teams,
casting directors, PRs, press, caterers,
production crew, photographers, an army
of various assistants. And in the middle
of it all, there are the models, who are
quite oten expected to get undressed
among and in front of this melee of people.
Why? Well, that?s just the way it is. But
ask yourself this: can you imagine having
to change in front of your colleagues,
clients and bosses? hought not.
Last week, during London Fashion
Week, Edie Campbell, the 27-year-old
Brit model who?s worked with such
mega-brands as Chanel, Burberry and
Alexander McQueen, appeared on Radio
4?s Today programme, calling for private
changing areas backstage. his isn?t the
irst time she?s spoken out. A powerful
advocate for change, last year Edie wrote
an impassioned open letter calling out ?a
culture that is too accepting of abuse, in
all of its manifestations. his can be the
ritual humiliation of models, belittling of
assistants, power plays and screaming its.?
?[Getting undressed] is jarring and
strange when you have a rush of people
backstage ater the show,? Edie tells Grazia 51
????? ??????????? ?????? "What's News" VK.COM/WSNWS
on the phone from Milan, where she will
walk in the Alberta Ferretti show later that
day. She didn?t realise quite how ?awkward
and weird? it was, however, until she saw
private changing spaces in action during
New York Fashion Week in February. ?his
is an example of how something that is
normal in fashion is actually not normal to
someone who?s never been in this situation.?
?It?s not acceptable for the models to
experience such a lack of privacy,? says the
leading casting director James Scully, who
has been a vociferous voice for change,
demanding more diversity and better
practices for models. ?his is an example of
the normalisation of a practice that should
never have been allowed in the irst place.
We would never ask a person to undress
in a public space ? this is no diferent.?
?A lot of the time we brush strange
working practices under the carpet and
pretend it?s necessary because we require
creative freedom,? says Edie. (For the
record, she says she felt perfectly
comfortable at the Molly Goddard and
Victoria Beckham shows in London,
where backstage photographers weren?t
allowed while models were dressing.)
She?s right. Fashion has excelled at
glossing over odd and outright predatory
behaviours ? of airbrushing abuses of
power under the guise of creative quirks.
he issue of private changing spaces is,
Edie says, indicative of wider problems
at the core of the industry ? of the
dehumanising of models and stark power
imbalances at play. ?I think it?s part of
a bigger picture of modernising and
reassessing the way in which the fashion
industry operates. here?s been a lot of
received behaviour that?s kind of been
handed down,? she says. ?It?s not the ?80s
any more and it?s not acceptable to just
continue blind. I think it?s time to reassess
the way in which we operate, and the
things we deem to be acceptable and
normalised over the years?.
Slowly but surely, change is happening.
In the wake of #MeToo, and the public
naming, shaming and eventually dropping
of some high-proile individuals in the
industry, fashion does seem to be looking
closely at itself. ?he Model Alliance has
called for private changing areas to protect
models from invasive photography since we
established the organisation in 2012. But it
wasn?t until the #MeToo movement took
hold that the industry was willing to work
with us to create private changing areas at
fashion week,? says Sara Zif, the founding
director of the Model Alliance.

Goddard
at London
Fashion Week
Earlier this year, publishing giant Cond�
Nast introduced a Code of Conduct banning
the use of models under 18 and alcohol on
set and ensuring that sexually suggestive
poses are pre-approved by the subject.
Elsewhere, the British Fashion Council?s
Positive Fashion initiative is a platform for
positive change. ?As part of this initiative, the
BFC has already implemented compulsory
private changing areas for models at the
oicial London Fashion Week venue as well
as private cubicles for models who don?t
wish to change in front of other models. No
photographers are allowed in these private
backstage areas,? says the BFC in a statement.
Social media has helped drive change.
Last year, Cameron Russell?s call-out
hashtag #MyJobShouldNotIncludeAbuse,
which encouraged models to speak out
about sexual abuse they had sufered,
MODELS
STILL FACE
ABUSES THAT
NO ONE
SHOULD
DEAL WITH
ampliied the conversation that had
previously been easy to ignore. ?he
advent of social media has really changed
things and it meant that people now have
a platform to say what is wonderful and
what is not about the industry,? says
Edie. ?I think its cracking it open, in
a way that makes people very nervous.
It forces people to listen because the
power is now distributed in a more even
manner throughout the industry because
people have a voice. hat is quite an
extraordinary thing?.
Still, Edie knows it can be hard to get
people to sympathise with models. ?It?s
diicult to feel sorry for models because it?s
perceived to be this extremely glamorous,
gilded profession ? that it?s a privilege and
an honour, something bestowed upon you
that you should be endlessly grateful for,?
she says. ?And while in some respects that?s
true, I think the stories you hear about
models are the ones who?ve made it. And
for every Karlie Kloss there are a hundred
non-Karlie Klosses who ended up in debt
in foreign countries having this dream that
was never going to happen for them.?
Regulations are needed, she adds, to
protect the young, most vulnerable girls
you?ve never heard of ? not just the ones
bagging multimillion-pound contracts.
?I?m glad that we are inally starting to see
changes, but this is just the beginning,? says
Zif. ?From lack of inancial transparency
and pressures to be dangerously thin, to
pervasive problems of sexual harassment
and assault on the job, models continue
to face abuses that nobody who works
for a living should have to deal with?.
It?s easy to dismiss the changing room
conversation as a ?fashion industry
problem?, but that?s to miss the point.
We can all dent our shared sphere of
macro concerns by addressing the issues
within our own sphere of inluence. We
should all be calling out the injustices;
the things that make us feel unsafe and
icky, wherever we see them.
Edie is the irst to admit she has been
lucky ? she?s gone in at the highest level
of the industry, worked with ?amazing?
people, and has savvy, supportive parents
who could help advise her ? but that
doesn?t mean speaking out for change is
easy. ?I was getting really frustrated with
the silence and the kind of like ?oh nothing
to do with me? that was fashion?s response
to what was going on. Honesty and truth is
something I really value so I just thought,
?Someone?s got to say it.?? It?s not just
models who will thank her for that.

I?M A LAWYER.
MY CHILDREN HAVE TUTORS.
SO I CAN?T BE A DRUG ADDICT.
CAN I?
With prescription drugs easily available online ? and a deicit in
Government spending on addiction ? professional women are increasingly
among those sliding into secret substance abuse. Anna Silverman reports?

two months after Annie* was given
painkillers for an injury, she noticed she was
taking more than the amount prescribed by
her GP. At irst, it was to ease her back pain,
but she soon found dihydrocodeine helped
ease the stress of balancing a high-pressure
job with raising two children under ive.
She started running out of prescriptions
early, so began lying to her surgery, saying
she?d lost her pills or was going on holiday so
needed more. To her surprise, they prescribed
a year?s worth in one go ? which she inished
in three months. ?hey took the edge of and
made me feel calmer,? says lawyer Annie, 37.
Suddenly, she realised she couldn?t cope
without them. ?I grew obsessed with how
many packets I had let. My husband
started to suspect, but I kept denying it to
him and myself. From the outside my life
looked perfect: I?ve got a good career, a
irst-class degree and a lovely home. My
children have tutors and we live in a nice
area. I couldn?t be a drug addict, I thought.
I had to keep up that narrative.?
But Annie is one of a growing number
of women who have turned to prescription
medication to manage anxiety or pain
? and then found themselves hooked.
Earlier this year, Dr Owen BowdenJones, consultant psychiatrist for Central
North-West London NHS Foundation
Trust, opened the AtOM clinic (Addiction
to Online Medication) to help teenagers
addicted to prescription drugs, such as
Xanax. But he was surprised when adults
in their twenties to forties ? many of them
women ? sought treatment as well.
?We see people for whom the label ?drug
user? would be a shock; people with good
social networks, jobs, families, partners,?
he tells Grazia. ?hey seem to feel that by
using a medicine, rather than an illicit
drug, it somehow legitimises the use. One
thing that has been striking is that people
I REALISED THAT
I RISKED LOSING
MY FAMILY AND
JOB IF I DIDN?T
GET HELP
oten keep their use a secret from their
partners or friends. hey buy prescription
medication online, it arrives through the
letterbox and then they try to conceal it.?
He says the drugs most commonly
misused by women who seek treatment are
benzodiazepine (Xanax and Valium), some
opioid painkillers and cognitive enhancers.
In fact, a recent study found one in 12
adults have taken these ?smart drugs? ?
a new breed of pills that can be bought
online without a prescription to improve
concentration at work. Modainil is the
most popular, with many experimenting
with it in the workplace to get ahead or
keep up if they are exhausted.
?he accessibility of prescription medicines
online, without medical supervision or
quality control, is a real concern,? says
Bowden-Jones. ?My advice to anyone who
thinks they have a problem is to go and
have an honest conversation with their GP.?
Nicki Hari?s addiction started in a similar
way to Annie?s ater she was prescribed drugs
for her chronic knee pain. Ater a year, she
realised she had panic attacks and lu-like
symptoms whenever she stopped taking
them. he pills made her feel like she was
?on a pink lufy cloud?, so when it dawned
on her she could buy them ? easily and
legally ? online, she was delighted.
She carried on for a decade until, in her
mid-thirties ? and now a mum-of-two ?
she couldn?t hide it any more: ?I?d wake up
late because I was so heavily sedated and
would lie to work [a management irm]
about why.? Until, one day, she simply
couldn?t get out of bed. ?Alarm bells rang
among my friends so they drove over,
climbed up on my bins and came in through
my bedroom window to ind me in bed.
One of them took the children to her house,
the others helped convince me to get help
and, eventually, I spent 28 days in rehab.?
A decade later, Nicki is still in recovery
and works as an admissions counsellor
at UKAT, a private addiction treatment
centre where admissions for prescription
drug addiction have risen by 33% in the
last two years. here were almost 50%
more women checking in for prescription
drug addiction last year compared to 2015.
?Today alone I?ve taken 10 calls from
people addicted to prescription drugs,? says
Nicki. ?here needs to be more awareness
and help. Local drug services don?t have
enough knowledge or funding to help and
those sufering might assume clinics are full
of people injecting themselves. But these
people are also addicts. here needs to be a
lot more help from the NHS and awareness
among GPs that a lot of the drugs they are
prescribing are very addictive.?
Eventually, a doctor noticed something
was awry with the way Annie was speeding
through her medication and he changed
her prescription to a slow-release form of
the drug. However, she quickly learned to
open the capsules and swallow the powder
to ofset the slow-release element. She also
managed to convince her GP to give her
another year-long repeat prescription.
?It was irresponsible of him not to spot the
signs,? she says. ?I wonder whether he knew
what was going on but didn?t have time to
open that can of worms. A few months later,
I realised I risked losing my family and job
if I didn?t get help, so I started a 12-step
programme at Narcotics Anonymous.?
She thought it would be full of ?people on
heroin? but was surprised to meet other
professional women with similar stories to
hers. ?NA worked for me because I made a
strong group of friends. If we?re ever tempted
to relapse, we support each other. But we
haven?t ever properly admitted this secret
side of ourselves to the others in our lives.?
Annie thinks women are especially
susceptible to this kind of addiction,
?Because we feel slowing down isn?t an
option. We spend our lives trying to
keep up appearances, to seem like strong,
independent women? here?s probably
loads of successful mums in my nice, quiet
neighbourhood knocking back pills just
to get through the day.?

From crying to crippling self-doubt,
all is not as it seems with those
beautiful street-style shots illing your
Instagram feed, says fashion editor
and inluencer Katherine Ormerod?
fashion month is
here, and with it the
inevitable lood of
fabulous street-style
shots illing your feed.
Achingly cool women
laughing as they wat
from show to show,
showered in sequins,
their Dior saddle bags swinging behind
them. You?d be forgiven for thinking the
chance to play dress-up every day, stay at
world-famous hotels and get the inside
track on next season?s most-talked-about
trends is the ultimate fantasy job.
On the one hand it is. But behind those
statement sunglasses and smiles lies the
dark underbelly of fashion week: body-
shaming, ierce competition, crippling
anxiety, pressure to ?turn it on? 24/7.
Because for many of the most identiiable
fashion week names, street style is a job.
Whether they?re paid to be a professional
clothes horse, act as an ?ambassador? for
a label, asked to host a breakfast or paid
to be seen at a party, there?s a long list of
lucrative ?activations? that top up inluencer
salaries. hough the fees some command
can be eye-watering (upwards of �k
for an ambassadorship), not everyone is
making that and the environment can
be stressful, competitive and physically
and mentally exhausting.
A month away from friends and family
travelling for work isn?t straightforward,
no matter the career. And, as I?m inding,
doing it as a new mum can be heartbreaking,
with uncharted pressures on both your
time and body. he anxiety of being
picture perfect at all times can be debilitating.
While I?m certainly no street-style
celebrity, as a journalist and inluencer I?ve
been in front of the cameras from dawn to
dusk some fashion weeks. And while I?m
returning ater taking a season out (I gave
birth during last Paris Fashion Week and,
though I?d planned to do a couple of
London shows, in the end I couldn?t

a freelancer the break meant a hit on my
earnings (plus no maternity leave).
I?m back because I need the money and
because a year is a long time in fashion ?

out there. Aside from the childcare
conundrum, there?s also the fact that even
though I?ve lost most of my baby weight,
my body is a diferent shape, especially
around my middle, and I haven?t had a
minute to think about my wardrobe.
Over the 25 seasons I?ve been doing
shows there have been similar crises of
conidence. Five years ago, my husband
let me ? yet only two months later I was
back on the carousel, multitasking 10
collections a day with long-distance phone
calls from my divorce lawyer, while crying
hysterically into my pillow at night.
Miscarriages, terminally ill loved ones,
looded basements and broken arms ?
these are all things that friends of mine
have gone through during fashion week
? but you plaster on a smile regardless.
?he funny thing is that, sometimes, I
look back and see these amazing pictures
and I remember feeling that I wanted to
cry because I felt so shit,? explains Camille
Charri鑢e, an Anglo-French inluencer and
podcast host. ?All I can see is how unhappy
I was and I know I was wearing sunglasses
to hide my pufy eyes from the cameras.?
?Over fashion week, a day won?t be
OK until I see a good picture of myself,?
Camille continues. ?Getting ready for each
I萊E
show can take ive minutes to two hours ?
it?s that same panic you get before you go
on a date and can?t igure out what to wear.
For each show you?re meant to represent a
designer. he girl that gets photographed
the most will get the irst pick, then it goes
down each rung until it gets to you and
sometimes something arrives that you
would never wear. You either suck it up
or they may never work with you again.?
Yet the damage can run deeper than a
missed opportunity for a ive- or six-igure
deal. he fashion paparazzi don?t mince
their words. I was once told to turn to the
side by a street-style photographer as I
looked ?too wide? (I was a size 6), and one
friend was told that no one was shooting
her that season because she?d eaten ?too
much pasta?. he next year she came back
half the size and was all over the streetstyle coverage. She rolled her eyes at it, but
in the end there?s an acceptance that it?s
one of the sad realities of the business ?
thin, leggy white girls get photographed,
especially if standing next to each other.
?Once I was outside a show with a good
friend,? recalls LA-based blogger Courtney
Trop, ?when a photographer came up and
asked to take a picture. He then said, ?No,
we just want your friend, step aside.? Now
I hate getting my picture taken outside of
shows because it gives me so much anxiety.?
Others have been elbowed in the face,
pushed to the ground or screamed at if
they?re in the way of someone ?important?.
I?ve sat in the back of a Mercedes ferrying
us from one show to the next with women
in tears because they?ve seen unlattering

shots of
themselves on
social media,
or because
photographers
have ignored
them, or they
think they look
dreadful or just because they?re wiped out.
It may sound like First World problems
but, when your livelihood is your look,
street style has the power to make ? and
break ? career opportunities. It?s easy
to suggest they walk away from the new
media, but brands will soon move on to
another, most likely younger, face.
Undeniably it?s an incredible privilege
to travel, see beautiful clothes and have
money-can?t-buy experiences, but it can
also feel like an endurance test. So next
time you see that girl swinging her Dior
saddle bag nonchalantly down the Rue
de Rivoli, remember she may be battling
a crisis, crippled with self-doubt or just
in need of a duvet day with her newborn.

our interview: that Anna can be? diicult
? guarded ? especially around any talk
of her love life (she famously dated David
hewlis for nine years, with whom she has
a daughter, Gracie, and just as famously
became part of the Primrose Hill set
during a three-year relationship with
Rhys Ifans). But then she sits down, the
sunglasses come of, and the questions
start. Where did you get your hair cut?
Should I go short? How old are you?
Do you want to try my perfume? (he
Oud Afair by Vilhelm Parfumerie ?
it?s delicious.) Anna, it seems, is going
to be anything but diicult.
It?s a itting metaphor. On screen, she
is well-known for meaty and, more oten
than not, rather controversial characters.
Yes, there was that lesbian kiss on Channel
4?s Brookside, the irst ever to be broadcast
pre-watershed on British screens. But also,
more recently, Broken, a gritty drama
alongside Sean Bean; he Girlriend
Experience (a ?hypersexual? political
drama); and the acclaimed series Marcella,
in which Anna played a detective with
a dissociative disorder that let her with
lashbacks and memory loss (and which

SINCE I WAS 13
prompted a widespread discussion of
female mental health and the sort of
women we?re comfortable seeing on
screen). Anna won an Emmy for the role.
Of screen, however, she?s far more
cheery, and is said to be great fun; a
friend once told me that, at the London
members? club he Groucho, Anna
overheard she was celebrating her 30th
birthday and proceeded to help celebrate.
And at our shoot she?s an undeniable
lirt, at one point shouting ?YAAAS
KWEEN? as she poses for the camera,
sending us all into a it of laughter.
We?re here to talk about her next role,
playing the mother of a transgender child
identiied as male (Max) at birth, but
who actually identiies as a girl (Maxine).
Butterly, a three-part drama, is the irst
ever to focus on a child transitioning.
Billed as ?controversial?, it?ll undoubtedly
get certain parts of Britain?s knickers in a
twist. But Anna is keen for people to watch
it before they judge, and I can understand
why. he series is an unlinching yet really
rather touching look at what happens to a
family when a child is in the kind of deep
turmoil that parents are unable to relate to.
he child actor, Callum Booth-Ford, is not
trans, but the team consulted with the
charity Mermaids, which supports genderdiverse and transgender children, to ensure
the story was sensitively told.
Filming Butterly has ?massively? changed
Anna?s opinion about transgender issues.
?I didn?t realise how hard it was for some
children,? she says. ?It?s a very prevalent subject
and you realise that people haven?t been who
they want to be. Millennials, I?m sure, have
had a great part in [raising awareness of ]
that.? She admits that, even ater the series,
she?d ind it ?very diicult? if Gracie wanted
to transition. ?You don?t want hardship for
62
Left: Anna on the
red carpet with
daughter Gracie
your child and I think, surrounding that,
there does come hardship with the ight to
be understood. But, of course, she?d have
nothing but love and support.? Anna is
reluctant to become any sort of authority on
the subject (?I?m just the actress, I tell the
story?), but she does hope the series will have
the potential to educate people about trans
issues. hat?s very woke, I suggest. ?What?s
woke?? she says, at a total loss, her broad
Northern accent making her pronounce it
?woooooke?. ?Ah,? she says when I explain.
?Gracie hasn?t taught me that one yet.?
Anna?s mum routinely tells her to ?just do
a romcom?, but she?s not that way inclined.

I DON?T THINK
THE AGE
BARRIER IS BEING
ENFORCED AS IT
ONCE WAS
Above: with Callum
Booth-Ford in %XWWHU?\
Top: celebrating her
birthday with Lady
Kitty Spencer (top left)
64
She?s not quite sure why such talking-point
roles come her way. ?I don?t seek them out,
particularly,? she shrugs. ?It just seems to
have become my niche. I think it?s because
I?m open-minded about it. It?s about not
being shy conveying those things.? But, at
42 (she celebrated her birthday a few days
before we meet with Princess Diana?s niece
Lady Kitty Spencer, a good friend), she?s
grateful that roles for older women have got
better. ?I don?t think the age barrier is being
as enforced as it once was. I?ve got work up
until 2021, and I?m not slowing down.? Still,
she?s keen to branch out. She?s one of the
producers on Butterly, which is something
she wants to do more of. And she has a
plan: she?s in the process of buying up
books to develop into ilms and TV series
? all of which she will produce herself.
?I?m obviously not going to tell you
which ones I have bought,? she laughs. In
news that will please her mum, there?s a
very light-hearted story, but others will be
darker, and one character will be ?a bit nuts?.
I ask if she?s gunning to be the British Reese
Witherspoon, who, ater years of being cast
as a blonde in romcoms, decided to buy up
books and produce her own projects, among
them Big Little Lies and Wild. ?Did she?
She?s probably a little better at it than me,?
says Anna, rather self-deprecatingly.
What?s interesting, though, is that Anna
isn?t doing this for the same reason. Where
Reese is all about creating interesting roles
for women, Anna says that?s only part of
her motivation. ?It?s not me saying, ?I?m
a feminist, I just want roles for women,??
she says. ?here?s a book I?ve got that?s got
an amazing part for a man.? So, is she a
feminist or not? ?I just don?t want to be
an extreme anything,? she sighs. ?I just
want there to be equality and fairness
and us all working together. I still love
the old-fashioned men and women being
able to lirt. And I think there?s so many
guidelines, we?re not going to be able
to know how to move forward.?
Which brings us to the question all
actresses are inevitably being asked these
days. And in Anna?s case, it?s particularly
relevant. In February, she briely opened
up about claims she had experienced
?unwanted advances? from an Amazon boss
in 2016, but maintained that it didn?t do
her ?enough damage? to comment on it at
the time. Will she today? ?I think it?s up to
each individual how much they want to talk
about it, or how much they don?t,? she says.
?here were so many other people who had
stories to tell, and such important stories
of horror, that they needed to do that.? She
pauses. ?I?ve always been somewhat a tough
cookie, I?ve been in the business since I
was 13. I won?t go into detail about how
I think things might have had an efect,
because I?ve managed to overcome them.
But I could say no quite loudly. And I
probably did sufer the consequences.? Does
she mean in terms of career advancement,
I ask. ?I think that says enough,? she replies,
shutting down the conversation.
Either way, I wonder how she feels about
the position of women on screen. Sure, the
roles are getting better, but there?s still an
inordinate amount of pressure for women
to look good. ?Oh, it?s getting worse,? she
says, rather nonchalantly. ?Look at the
amount of reality TV programmes. And
retouching ? I can?t bear it. It just makes it
impossible for anyone to live up to. We?re
creating a fabricated world.? She tries not to
worry about her body or hair changing as
she gets older, especially because she can
see it all play out on screen. But she jokes
that she is ?particular? about good lighting.
Today, Anna lives in Windsor with
Gracie, now 13, with a balcony overlooking
Windsor Castle (where Anna and friends
sat avidly watching the royal wedding earlier
this year). She also has a house in LA, where
she lived while ilming Pushing Daisies,
a series that landed her a Golden Globe
nomination. Suice to say, all of this has
made for a rather charming accent today:
mostly Northern, but with minor hints
of the US and posh, Southern English.
But she has no intention of going back to
the States. ?It would mean moving Gracie
back,? she sighs. ?It would be so diicult.?
Now seems like a good time to ask her
the obvious: what is the deal with her love
life? ?hat part of my life, I?ve chosen to
keep it private,? she says. ?Otherwise, I
think you set yourself up for a curse. Let?s
just say, I?m not not dating. I like love too
much.? Either way, she doesn?t seem at all
bothered. Indeed, I get the impression that
Anna is just ine with where she is, in her
career and her life with Gracie. ?I?m most
excited about the roses in my garden, I
keep looking at them,? she says, without a
hint of irony. ?And I like my Aga!? Perhaps
all that drama on screen is quite enough.
?Butterly? is coming soon to ITV

WOMB WITH A VIEW
Every week, a woman relects on
motherhood ? whether she has children or not
?THE REALITY OF BEING
SAME-SEX PARENTS?
When Lotte Jefs and
her wife Jen had a baby,
negotiating the new social
landscape around being two
mums came with challenges
t first i thought
I?d misheard, but
when the health
worker at the baby
clinic handed me
back my daughter
ater weighing her
she unequivocally
said again, ?Go to Daddy.? ?Daddy?! I had
actually bothered to do my make-up that
day, and was wearing hoop earrings (albeit
with a Ralph Lauren shirt and chinos),
surely she wasn?t seriously mistaking me for
a man? ?Is Daddy going to bring you back
next week?? she asked my four-week-old,
Ettie, who she also kept referring to as ?he?,
possibly on account of her blue babygrow.
My wife Jen and I looked at each other
with eyebrows raised, Ettie spewed a little
bit of milk from the corner of her mouth
in protest, but none of us bothered to
correct her. Some people see what they
expect to see; just like a baby in blue must
be a boy, a baby must have a mum and a
dad ? entertaining any other possibility
(even when it?s wearing lip gloss and
staring you in the face) is an intellectual
leap too far for some.
he thing is, this health worker was
ignorant but meant well and, oten, as
same-sex parents, it?s just easier to let such
profound misunderstandings slide. But
then there are the situations I?m unwilling
to write of. One of those came when I
informed the HR department at work my
a
wife was having a baby and I was given
the paternity leave policy, which referred
throughout to men and fathers. I work
for a multi-national communications
agency, an organisation that needed to do
better. hat no one thought to change the
language of this policy before presenting it
as relevant to me as a woman made me feel
angry and indignant that I was expected
to conform to a heterosexual family
paradigm. So I promptly made my feelings
known to anyone who?d listen, including
my CEO, and I couldn?t have asked for
a better reaction. We changed every
mention of ?father? in the policy to ?parent?
and every mention of ?men? to ?people?.
But amending words is easy; what?s
harder will be changing the policies
themselves. As non-traditional families
become more common, I hope every
business will look at their parental leave
oferings. (At the moment ?legally?
the ?Other Mother? is entitled to the
equivalent of paternity leave or of course
co-parental leave. here are no concessions
made based on the gender of the parents.)
he challenge will be reconciling equality
and diference, because there are nuances
Jen, holding
baby Ettie,
and Lotte.
Right: Lotte
with their
daughter
to surrogacy, egg sharing and other such
parenting arrangements that need to
be considered. his is an opportunity
to discuss workplace diversity as a real
lived experience not a buzz word.
So much of the literature around
parenting assumes heterosexuality and
maybe it?s unrealistic of me to expect
anything else. he app I used to track our
pregnancy and ind out what item of fruit
our foetus was as big as each week was a
celebration of the most pink/blue kind of
heterosexuality imaginable. It was aimed
at mothers but included ofensively basic
advice for dads too, such as ?your wife
may be more tired than usual so ofer to
cook dinner?. I also learned how to throw
a man-friendly baby shower: ?Go easy on
the pink and realise that most men don?t
ind jelly beans in a baby bottle all that
adorable?. What killjoys! he more I learned
about ?men? from this app, the happier I
was not to be having a baby with one.
We arrived at our irst NCT class
expecting the same levels of banal binary
straightness. Imagine our surprise, then, to
ind another lesbian couple in attendance.
At irst I thought they were probably just
good friends, but it quickly became clear
we weren?t the only gays in Blackheath
Village. Since having Ettie I?ve realised
there?s a great network of same-sex parents
in London, and even in my local area.
Recently, I met gay dads and their baby
in the nappy aisle of a local Sainsbury?s.
We swapped numbers and arranged a
cofee date and it?s been so interesting
to share our journeys to parenthood.
Not being ?special? at the NCT class
was strange. I had only just perfected
my patient but unapologetic tone when
describing our experience of inding an
anonymous sperm donor at a Danish
sperm bank (it?s a bigger database than
????? ??????????? ?????? "What's News" VK.COM/WSNWS
PHOTOG R APH S
H O L LY F A L C O N E R
the UK equivalent) and using Intrauterine
insemination at a Harley Street clinic ? a
simple procedure that joyfully worked irst
time. I was almost ofended that no one
asked for any such details. Not once did
the NCT tutor talk about ?fathers or
husbands?, she always said ?parent or
partner? in a way that felt natural (unlike
our hypnobirthing instructor, who kept
getting in a muddle as she attempted to
include Jen and me when talking about
a ?man?s special role? during labour).
Ater our inal NCT class, two
What?sApp groups were set up, one for the
mums, the other for ?partners?. I was given
the option to sign up to either but chose
?partners?, ready for some bantz with the
ladz and the other ?other mother?. Alas, the
messages extended to perfunctory birth
announcements and a mix of thumbs up
and clapping hand emojis in response. So,
I joined the mums group instead ? they
swapped tips, asked questions, ofered
support. It was much more what I needed
while I was on parental leave and was
happy they welcomed me into the coven.
We decided that Jen would ?go irst?
based on our work situations. She had just
gone freelance as a travel writer and I had
just accepted a new job in advertising. he
plan is for me to have our next child and
I?m really conscious of what a unique
perspective this will give me. Yes, I?m a
mum already. Actually, I?m Mama and Jen
is Mummy, at least until Ettie is old enough
to decide for herself what to call us (what
if she designates me Dada ater all!), but
my relationship with my daughter isn?t
the same as Jen?s. I feel absolutely that she?s
my child, her not sharing my genes has
nothing to do with how much I love her,
but mine and Jen?s roles are diferent in the
ways a mother?s and father?s roles are.
I?m carrying the car seat, assembling the
pram, doing more of the heavy liting,
because Jen is still recovering from labour
and oten has a baby latched on her breast.
Plus, now I?m back at work and she?s on
unpaid maternity leave, I?m paying for
more and Jen is cooking more. But these
things are all circumstantial and not
because I?m mirroring some outdated
gender stereotype. he real diference is
that Jen carried our baby for nine months,
she breastfeeds her every hour of the day,
there?s a physical, biological connection
there that doesn?t belong to me, and that?s
OK. I?m lucky that I might experience this
in a few years. I wonder, given the chance,
how many men would think the same.

As a smile triggers happy hormones, Hannah Coates
discovers the new tooth treatments worth grinning about?
A PEARLY WHITE glint bouncing
of teeth is forever an indication of
health and beauty ? just look at Meghan
Markle. But new stats show that we?re
not as willing to lash our smiles as much
as we should: an overwhelming 70%
of us are self-conscious of our teeth*,
with 40% blaming image-based social
media sites. And it makes sense,
considering we?re no longer just faced
with Julia Roberts? heart-melting grin
when we choose to put on Notting Hill,
but also, thanks to Instagram, we?re
continually exposed to perma-white
smiles. So, what can we do to enhance
what we have and soten the things we
don?t like quite so much?
92
?Gone are the days where we were happy
to have invasive treatments to achieve the
perfect smile,? says Dr Raman Aulakh of
Bow Lane Dental. ?Now it?s not about
cutting teeth down and adding a load
of veneers, but rather a soter and more
holistic approach to teeth.? Dr Nadine
Skipp from Aura Dental agrees. ?It?s about
tooth conservation.? Keeping our teeth
and gums strong and healthy is high
on our smile agenda, while any changes
we do make veer towards a classic, natural
appearance. Importantly, this way of
looking holistically at our mouths (and
faces) means that we avoid knocking out
the idiosyncratic qualities that make our
smiles quintessentially us.

Because the whites of the eyes and teeth
are at opposing ends of the face, if one
changes colour (in teeth?s case, yellows),
the balance is upset and you?ll really notice
it. hat?s why we thank our lucky stars for
whitening, probably the quickest way to
improve your smile. And no, we?re not
talking about Ross Geller glow-in-the-dark
levels of bright white. ?Whitening should
be used to give a natural light beauty, not
an opaque glow,? says Dr Skipp. ?A lot of
that Hollywood brilliant white is veneers.?
he best option is at-home whitening,
using plastic trays made from impressions
taken of your mouth. To lighten teeth, a
bleaching agent (either fast-acting hydrogen
peroxide or carbamide peroxide, which
takes a bit longer) needs to be present, and
this comes in a gel that is dotted ? by you
? into the tray. Many people choose to
whiten overnight, which used to be the
only option, but it takes longer for the
chemical processes to occur. Now, higher
concentrations of hydrogen peroxide (Dr
Skipp uses 6% for day ? the max allowed
under EU regulations) mean you need less
tray time. ?he day kit only takes an hour,
while night is more like four hours,? she
says, ?and you get less sensitivity because
there?s less contact with the teeth.? Either
way, expect to whiten daily for an average
of two weeks to achieve the best results.
One of the best home kits on the market
is Philips Zoom! in DayWhite and
NiteWhite, from �.95.
he right shade of white depends on
your colouring. ?Pale skins, blondes and
redheads can deal with much whiter
teeth than dark hair and skin tones,? says
Dr Uchenna Okoye of London Smiling
Clinic, while cosmetic dentist Dr Rhona
Eskander points out that, for a subtle look,
it tends to be around seven shades lighter
than your existing colour. he bleaching
process only works on natural teeth, so if
you already have veneers, crowns or illings,
don?t expect them to change colour. ?You?ll
also notice increased tooth sensitivity
during the treatment,? says Dr Skipp.
he other option for brighter teeth is an
in-clinic laser, which combines hydrogen
peroxide gel with a laser to catalyse the
process. he result? You get two weeks?
worth of at-home results in under an hour.
?his is complemented with a tailored
home whitening system,? says Dr Eskander.
he key diference between the two
treatments isn?t the efect, but the time and
money spent ? expect to pay in the region
of �0-�0 for in-clinic whitening.
Before either, good tooth and gum

health is essential and most dentists insist
on a hygienist appointment pre-whitening.
?While you?re whitening and as much as
possible thereater, avoid tooth-staining
dark foods and drinks like curry, cofee,
cola and red wine,? says Dr Skipp. If you
sufer the shakes without your cofee ix,
try a glass straw, like Raw Straw?s green
ones, � for four, which means the cofee
doesn?t have to touch your teeth as you
drink. And will whitening toothpastes
actually help? hey can help shit surface
stains but over-the-counter products can
How your mouth holds itself matters more
than you might think. ?he perfect smile is
where you can see teeth equally from one
side to the other, with just a hint of gum,?
says Dr Okoye. he shape, which relies
heavily on the positioning of your teeth,
also serves as a scafold for the rest of the
face. Unfortunately, the collagen in gums
degrades as we age and teeth begin to tumble
inwards. Add gum disease to the mix,
which also accelerates collagen degradation
and loss of teeth, and you?ve got cheekbones
that don?t want to stay lited. ?We can
address this by using braces to expand the
smile again,? says Dr Okoye, who also uses
implants to maintain or reinforce the arch
of the smile where needed. Invisalign, a 95

Of course, your smile is far more than just
teeth. ?It?s as much about the amount of
gum on show and how your lips animate
around your teeth, as it is good teeth,? says
Dr Aulakh. Overbrushing, gum disease,
stress and hormonal issues all contribute to
recessed gums and, as Dr Okoye points out,
?he less gum you have, the older you will
look.? When gums have recessed quite far as
a result of gum disease or overbrushing, the
result is a black triangle near the base of the
tooth that feels sensitive, too. Fear not, for
the ?gum grat? can cure all, and it isn?t nearly
as bad as it sounds. ?It?s where you take tissue
from another part of the mouth, like behind
the molar teeth, and transplant it to the
recessed gum,? says Dr Okoye. ?It sounds
gruesome but only takes one to two hours.?

BOBBI BROWN EYESHADOW
IN BLACK PLUM, �.50
Before I tell you about my absolute
beauty essential, I have a confession to
make: in all my 25 years as a beauty
editor, I have never, and will never, master
liquid licky eyeliner. I have asymmetric
hooded eyes and, quite frankly, can?t be
bothered. With my make-up, as with my
entire beauty routine, I want minimum
efort, maximum results. And so I am
going to share with you the quickest and
easiest way to line your eyes, with this
universally lattering eyeshadow.
he richly pigmented deep brown with a
hint of plum genuinely suits all eye colours
and, unlike liquid or pencil liner, it does
not require a steady hand. All you need is
a short-bristle, stubby liner brush (I use the
Nars Smudge Brush, �). I then gently
pull my eye out towards my temple with
my let hand and, using the brush, gently
smudge the shadow along the lash line.
It doesn?t have to be perfect ? in fact,
the more Kate Moss, the better. Intensify
it with a brown pencil at the waterline
[where your eyelid meets your eye] for
evenings, smudge it right over the lid
and go totally Chrissie Hynde rock ?n? roll;
it really is that universal and easy to use.
I?ve used this eyeshadow as my liner
for decades, and even Bobbi Brown herself
told me it was my signature look. Trust
me, it really is the best stealth eyelinermasquerading-as-a-shadow you will ever
buy. You can thank me later, when you
ind you can apply it on the bus, Tube or
in the back of an Uber.

It?s the one ingredient that can improve any complexion. If vitamin
C isn?t part of your skincare routine, here?s how to get on-board

IN AN INDUSTRY that profers
ever-more unusual ingredients (donkey
milk, anyone?), it?s a testament to the
transformative powers of vitamin C that
it still tops skin-gredient charts. New
products promising to deliver a lawless
complexion emerge on an almost weekly
basis, but vitamin C remains the ingredient
that delivers consistent results. According
to the Pinterest 100 report, saved pins for
vitamin C serums have gone up a whopping
3,379% in the last year, while Mintel
records a 26% hike in vitamin C product
launches. So why so much buzz?
?Vitamin C is one of the best skincare
actives in the world,? says Lixirskin founder
Colette Haydon, who has created products
for some of the world?s best-known beauty
brands. ?It?s a magic quick-ix that gives you
an instant glow, but if you stick with it,
there are so many other beneits. It boosts
collagen, regulates melanin production
and scavenges free-radicals, making skin
brighter, more even-toned and lited.? he
only catch is that vitamin C is notoriously
unstable ? it doesn?t get on with light, heat
or air ? so unless you choose the right
formula, you?re wasting your money (and
potentially even doing your skin more
harm than good). So here?s how to navigate
the vitamin C circus and reap the rewards?

P I C K YO U R V I T H I T
Hundreds of products list vitamin C on
the label but not all vitamin C is created
equal. ?L-ascorbic acid is the most potent
because it?s the purest form of vitamin C
that the skin can use,? says Colette. ?Lots of
formulations use vitamin C-derivatives
instead ? like magnesium ascorbyl
phosphate and sodium ascorbyl phosphate
? because they?re a bit more stable. But
these all have to be converted to L-ascorbic
acid to be beneicial to skin, so they?re not
quite as efective.? If you want to go for
L-ascorbic acid, be prepared to try a slightly
unusual type of product,
rather than a traditional
serum, because it?s an
especially inicky
ingredient ? it needs
water to be active but,
once mixed with water,
it oxidises and loses its
power over time.
Lixirskin Vitamin C Paste [2], �, is a
clever ?lash mask?, designed to be massaged
into skin with damp ingers every morning.
?he advantage of this is that the vitamin C
stays stable and is only activated when you
apply the water,? says Colette. Just leave it on
for a few minutes while you brush your
teeth to allow it to penetrate, then rinse. ?It
creates an immediate glow and reduces the
oxidised sebum and proteins that give skin
that grey, urban look.?
If you don?t mind playing mixologist,
vitamin C powders like he Ordinary
100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder [6], �90
? which you blend with your moisturiser
or serum ? are also a good bet. Just don?t
go crazy as it?s powerful stuf. Start with
a pinch every three or four days until
your skin acclimatises.
Not keen to add an extra step to your
routine? Swap your usual SPF for Obagi
Medical?s new Professional-C Suncare,
�.84 ? it combines 10% L-ascorbic
acid with UVA and UVB ilters for
a free-radical-ighting dream team.
S E N S I T I V E S O RT S
If potent actives tend to send your skin
into a tailspin, you can still get in on the
vitamin C action. ?Vitamin C sensitivity is
actually very rare,? reassures skincare guru
Paula Begoun. ?Remember, it?s the primary
antioxidant naturally found in healthy
skin. Using higher amounts of ascorbic
acid can trigger redness or stinging on
application, but these reactions tend to
subside quickly and stop completely with
ongoing use.? If your skin is extremely
sensitive, Paula recommends using the
non-acidic forms of vitamin C, such as
tetrahexyldecyl ascorbate or magnesium
ascorbyl phosphate, instead. hese still
have impressive complexion-perfecting
powers but they?re less likely to upset skin.
Another bonus with tetrahexyldecyl
ascorbate is that it?s oil-soluble, which
means it can penetrate deeper into the
dermis than other forms of vitamin C,
which are water-soluble. Find it in
Sunday Riley?s brilliant new C.E.O.

Rapid Flash Brightening Serum [3], �,
and Medik8 C-Tetra+ Intense, �.
NUMBER CRUNCHING
So how much vitamin C do you need?
?Generally, higher amounts of L-ascorbic
acid (at least 10%) are necessary due to
the delicate nature of this ingredient,? says
Paula Begoun. ?Other forms of vitamin
C are efective at lower concentrations,
because of their greater stability.? Just don?t
assume that the higher the number, the
better the results. ?With L-ascorbic acid,
you don?t necessarily get more with more,
and very high doses can cause irritation,?
says Colette. ?Lots of factors, such as pH,
determine how efective a vitamin C
product is; a higher percentage doesn?t
mean the formulation is good.? If you?re a
vitamin C newbie, start with a couple of
drops of Paula?s Choice C15 Super Booster
[1+7], �, every other day and work up
gradually once your skin can handle it. For
seasoned C-users, Inkey Vitamin C [5],
�99, and DCL C Scape High Potency
Night Booster 30, �8, both contain
30% L-ascorbic acid and are water-free
to help keep it stable.
ON THE SHELF
Whatever type of vitamin C you go
for, the packaging is just as important
as the product within. ?If you allow
vitamin C to come into contact
with light and air, it actually promotes
oxidation in the skin, rather than
preventing it,? says Colette. Pick
a product in opaque, air-tight
packaging and don?t keep it in a hot
and humid bathroom. ?You need to get
it, use it and inish it,? warns Colette.

high-end international restaurants. Book
ahead if you?re celebrating a special

as any top restaurant in London. Choose

Cozumel Island?s
coral reef, Mexico
get on-board
By Lauren Jarvis
While I?d sailed around the Greek islands
and the Galapagos, I never considered
myself a cruise-ship-kinda-gal until I was
invited to cruise the Western Caribbean.
So I packed my bikini and glam gear, ready
to share seven days with 5,400-plus other
people on-board Royal Caribbean?s luxury
mega-liner, Allure Of he Seas.
Reader, I loved it. Once only for retired
folk, cruises are now a brilliant way to travel
for any age and on my cruise there were
plenty of fellow 30-somethings having a
fabulous time. It was hard not to. he ship
had on-tap activities and entertainment
from ziplining nine decks above sea level, to
the FlowRider surf school and tailored gym
sessions, with a spa for recovery massages.
In the evening, as well as the amazing
restaurants, there were live gigs and dancing
ater dark. Cruises are incredibly social, so
unleash your inner social butterly. We also
spent three days of the liner, exploring
Jamaica?s waterfalls, Mexico?s coral reefs
and Haiti?s beaches. Our en-suite cabin
provided a relaxing retreat, with a lounge
area, TV and plenty of space to unpack and
make ?home?, while the balcony provided
the perfect spot to watch the ocean drit by.

Riviera Maya near
Tulum, Mexico
get out & explore
By Lauren Jarvis
Our irst stop on my Royal Caribbean
cruise was the beach resort of Labadee
in Haiti, where I embraced all the classic
Caribbean pursuits: sunning, swimming
and sinking a couple of rum punches.
But my other two shore days were actionpacked. In Mexico, oicial excursions
included exploring the ancient Mayan
ruins of Chich閚 Itz� or Tulum and
snorkelling on Cozumel Island?s worldfamous reef, surrounded by tropical ish
and rays. In Jamaica, I did my own thing,
inding a local driver when the ship docked
in Falmouth, visiting a few beaches and
hiking the cascades at Dunn?s River Falls.
Hiring a jeep either in advance or on
arrival is a good option too ? it?s amazing
what you can see in a day with a self-drive.
But when you travel solo, make sure you
give yourself enough time to get back.
While the vessel will wait for you if you?re
late on an oicial excursion, it won?t if
you?re travelling independently.

No matter how social you are, everyone
needs some ?me? time on holiday. Avoid
the windowless cabins ? instead book
the best balconied stateroom you can
aford so it can be your private retreat.
Also, consider splashing out on an
exclusive VIP ?ship-within-a-ship?
complex, such as Norwegian?s he
Haven or MSC?s Yacht Club, which
have private pools, sun decks, lounges
and restaurants, or one of Royal
Caribbean?s Royal Suites that come
with a plethora of special perks.
choose the right
cruise for you
by Jeannine Williamson
here are cruise companies that target an
older crowd (such as Saga and Fred Olsen)
or the family market (Disney), while others
such as Viking Ocean Cruises are adultsonly, but many others appeal to a broad
age range with their wide variety of onand of-board activities. In general, ocean
cruises with more adventurous or active
itineraries attract a younger crowd than
more leisurely and sedate river, historic and
cultural cruises. Cruises are a good option
for solo travellers ? lots of cruise companies,
including P&O and homson, ofer single
cabins and special events programmes for
solos to meet and mingle.
I recommend going through a specialist
travel agent or cruise consultant such as
Ponders Travel (ponderstravel.co.uk) or
Planet Cruise (planetcruise.com) ? they?ll
be able to get you a much better deal as
cruise experts have access to the best rates
and can oten add perks, such as champagne
on arrival or credit to spend on-board,
that you won?t get by booking direct.
Cruise Lines International Association
(cruising.org) lists more than 4,000
accredited travel agents, and has lots of
tips for irst-time cruisers. Also check out

Book any speciality restaurants, spa

before departure, and consider
buying a drinks package in advance
to save money if you?re partial to
a holiday cocktail (or 10!).
Avoid ?ying in to your departure
city on the same day as your cruise
sets sail (you don?t want to miss
the boat) and do some research on
your ports of call, so you can hit the
ground running when you arrive.

????? ??????????? ?????? "What's News" VK.COM/WSNWS
little women, Louisa May Alcott?s
much-loved two-volume novel about the
four March sisters, was published 150
years ago this month. Despite some of
its themes seeming painfully outdated ?
?womanly? virtues such as sock-darning
are promoted piously ? its popularity has
endured, along with its most important
lessons. Here?s what it taught us?
1. Heroines come in diferent forms
Wild, headstrong and creative, Jo was
the March sister we all wanted to be.
She wasn?t beautiful like Meg and Amy,
or gentle and sweet like Beth, but she
had spirit, personality to spare and, in
a world of limited options for women,
decided her own fate by becoming a
writer. She was pleasingly nuanced,
too ? and even, when she almost let
Amy drown, kind of dark (although
we didn?t necessarily blame her).
Plus Winona Ryder played her in
the 1994 ilm, giving her the ultimate
cool-girl stamp of approval.
2. Love isn?t everything?
None of the March girls ? even the
slightly drippy Meg ? spent much time
thinking about ?romantic rubbish?;
instead, they got on with making
their own fun. heir mother, Marmee,
encouraged their independence, ambition
and adventure-seeking, telling Jo: ?Go,
and embrace your liberty. And see
what wonderful things come of it.?
3. ?But it?s worth waiting for the
right kind
When Laurie, the handsome, rich boy
next door, declared his love for Jo only
to be rebufed, we were inconsolable.
(We may or may not have been in love
with him ourselves.) But she was right,
because her feelings for him were those
of friendship, not romance. When
Laurie later ended up with spoilt
princess Amy and Jo with Professor
Bhaer, our younger selves may have felt
betrayed, but both pairings turned out
to be compatible. If he arrives, Mr Right
may surprise us. He may even be a grizzled
old German tutor.
4. Giving?s better than receiving
he novel opens with Jo whingeing
that ?Christmas won?t be Christmas
without any presents?, because the
Civil War was on and the March family
were poor. But they cast of their self-pity,
bought presents for their mother and
took their Christmas breakfast to a
starving family. Which gave them a festive
glow of altruism and us a morsel of
food for thought.
5. Sometimes random lovely things happen
Alcott writes, when Mr March arrives
home unexpectedly from war: ?Now
and then, in this workaday world,
things do happen in the delightful
storybook fashion, and what a comfort
that is.? Preach.

Women And Why It Still Matters?

programme of the year ?

PHOTO:BBC
JADE IS 19. An arch Brexiteer, she has a
tattoo on her let ankle reading ?I ? Boris
Johnson?. During the last general election,
when her friends were taking full
advantage of hirsty hursday drinks
promos down the local nightclub, Jade
spent the evening watching the Tory
candidate she?d canvassed for ? using a
wooden spoon to put lealets through
postboxes to avoid getting bitten by the
local mutts ? lose by almost 10,000 votes.
Her story is an emblem of British retreat,
of empty hope pinned on hollow gods.
It is painted entirely without judgement
in the absorbing documentary series
he Mighty Redcar, probably the most
moving programme of the year.
For three straight weeks now, local lass
Madison Cooper has narrated a sequence
of stunning vignettes from the NorthEastern coastal nook of Redcar, of good
folk trying to get on in one of Britain?s
collapsing townscapes. he ilm-maker
Daniel Dewsbury spent a year swallowing
all its beauty, to get each story pitchperfect. His camera paints the locale with
the sweeping Britishness of a fashion
photographer. he coastline blisters, the
sunsets ravage. His subjects are raw and
compelling. Beauty is everywhere, oten
in the most mundane captured detail.
Yet it?s the stories of the folk who really
cut through to the tear ducts here. I haven?t
watched a single episode of he Mighty
Redcar, a show dotted with the kind of
sincere afection for parochialism you
simply can?t ship in, without bawling my

he tiny triumph of an amateur boxing

you can ind a roof over your head. Jade,
lovely Jade, and her skewed political hopes,
farmed out to pasture for an au pair?s job
in Greece because there?s nothing for her
round here any more.
he freshness is located entirely in its
tone. his is not the sot jeering at little
England of his Country or the detached
metropolitan arm around the shoulder
of Grayson Perry. It is a tale of hope
and belief, community and love. In it,
Dewsbury, Madison and all their beautiful
friends of Redcar emblemise exactly
what it is to be blessed with Northern

debt-free life, successful career, nice
house and overseas travel with envy, but I am the one who is a
shade of green. I have all of these things because I have time, lots
of it, to ill. My story is tinged with guilt due to another issue
we don?t oten share ? an abortion at 38 because I didn?t want
to be a single parent and he didn?t want another child. It was
the right decision at the time but now a bittersweet regret.
I chose his desire over mine. It didn?t last long ater that. Being
single or childless is not always an active choice and we need
to make it OK for everyone to be alone. Susan

I read Who said Victoria
Beckham wasn?t funny? (17
Sept) with growing annoyance.
Am I mistaken, or is she a
fashion designer? I thought so.
In that case, why does she have
to be funny to be to be allowed
to be successful? I can?t think
of any male fashion designers
who are required to be funny
or even likeable. hey just
have to be good at their job.
Why are we still doing this to
ourselves and each other? Lisa

Like Emily, I?m also 37,
recently diagnosed with
endometriosis and newly single.
I try to keep my grief at being
childless quiet ? compared to
those struggling with infertility
and miscarriage, it can feel too
self-indulgent to speak about
this struggle, and so it remains a
taboo. For my part this is
complicated by the fact I?ve had
more than one abortion. I feel
no guilt or regret about that, but
with silence around social
infertility those experiences
make it even more diicult to
voice my sadness. But I now feel
empowered to speak to my
friends. It takes courage to voice
this sadness, but it is only by
doing so that we can ind the
support and peace to help us
move past it. Natalie

put her right back in the spotlight.
From mile-high romps with married
Liam Gallagher and orgies with
female prostitutes during her
marriage, to tales of Chris Martin
and Gwyneth Paltrow staging
interventions to save her from her
demons, the singer did not hold

As a smile triggers happy hormones, Hannah Coates
discovers the new tooth treatments worth grinning about?
A PEARLY WHITE glint bouncing
of teeth is forever an indication of
health and beauty ? just look at Meghan
Markle. But new stats show that we?re
not as willing to lash our smiles as much
as we should: an overwhelming 70%
of us are self-conscious of our teeth*,
with 40% blaming image-based social
media sites. And it makes sense,
considering we?re no longer just faced
with Julia Roberts? heart-melting grin
when we choose to put on Notting Hill,
but also, thanks to Instagram, we?re
continually exposed to perma-white
smiles. So, what can we do to enhance
what we have and soten the things we
don?t like quite so much?
92
?Gone are the days where we were happy
to have invasive treatments to achieve the
perfect smile,? says Dr Raman Aulakh of
Bow Lane Dental. ?Now it?s not about
cutting teeth down and adding a load
of veneers, but rather a soter and more
holistic approach to teeth.? Dr Nadine
Skipp from Aura Dental agrees. ?It?s about
tooth conservation.? Keeping our teeth
and gums strong and healthy is high
on our smile agenda, while any changes
we do make veer towards a classic, natural
appearance. Importantly, this way of
looking holistically at our mouths (and
faces) means that we avoid knocking out
the idiosyncratic qualities that make our
smiles quintessentially us.

Because the whites of the eyes and teeth
are at opposing ends of the face, if one
changes colour (in teeth?s case, yellows),
the balance is upset and you?ll really notice
it. hat?s why we thank our lucky stars for
whitening, probably the quickest way to
improve your smile. And no, we?re not
talking about Ross Geller glow-in-the-dark
levels of bright white. ?Whitening should
be used to give a natural light beauty, not
an opaque glow,? says Dr Skipp. ?A lot of
that Hollywood brilliant white is veneers.?
he best option is at-home whitening,
using plastic trays made from impressions
taken of your mouth. To lighten teeth, a
bleaching agent (either fast-acting hydrogen
peroxide or carbamide peroxide, which
takes a bit longer) needs to be present, and
this comes in a gel that is dotted ? by you
? into the tray. Many people choose to
whiten overnight, which used to be the
only option, but it takes longer for the
chemical processes to occur. Now, higher
concentrations of hydrogen peroxide (Dr
Skipp uses 6% for day ? the max allowed
under EU regulations) mean you need less
tray time. ?he day kit only takes an hour,
while night is more like four hours,? she
says, ?and you get less sensitivity because
there?s less contact with the teeth.? Either
way, expect to whiten daily for an average
of two weeks to achieve the best results.
One of the best home kits on the market
is Philips Zoom! in DayWhite and
NiteWhite, from �.95.
he right shade of white depends on
your colouring. ?Pale skins, blondes and
redheads can deal with much whiter
teeth than dark hair and skin tones,? says
Dr Uchenna Okoye of London Smiling
Clinic, while cosmetic dentist Dr Rhona
Eskander points out that, for a subtle look,
it tends to be around seven shades lighter
than your existing colour. he bleaching
process only works on natural teeth, so if
you already have veneers, crowns or illings,
don?t expect them to change colour. ?You?ll
also notice increased tooth sensitivity
during the treatment,? says Dr Skipp.
he other option for brighter teeth is an
in-clinic laser, which combines hydrogen
peroxide gel with a laser to catalyse the
process. he result? You get two weeks?
worth of at-home results in under an hour.
?his is complemented with a tailored
home whitening system,? says Dr Eskander.
he key diference between the two
treatments isn?t the efect, but the time and
money spent ? expect to pay in the region
of �0-�0 for in-clinic whitening.
Before either, good tooth and gum

only legally contain up to 0.1% hydrogen

health is essential and most dentists insist
on a hygienist appointment pre-whitening.
?While you?re whitening and as much as
possible thereater, avoid tooth-staining
dark foods and drinks like curry, cofee,
cola and red wine,? says Dr Skipp. If you
sufer the shakes without your cofee ix,
try a glass straw, like Raw Straw?s green
ones, � for four, which means the cofee
doesn?t have to touch your teeth as you
drink. And will whitening toothpastes
actually help? hey can help shit surface
stains but over-the-counter products can
How your mouth holds itself matters more
than you might think. ?he perfect smile is
where you can see teeth equally from one
side to the other, with just a hint of gum,?
says Dr Okoye. he shape, which relies
heavily on the positioning of your teeth,
also serves as a scafold for the rest of the
face. Unfortunately, the collagen in gums
degrades as we age and teeth begin to tumble
inwards. Add gum disease to the mix,
which also accelerates collagen degradation
and loss of teeth, and you?ve got cheekbones
that don?t want to stay lited. ?We can
address this by using braces to expand the
smile again,? says Dr Okoye, who also uses
implants to maintain or reinforce the arch
of the smile where needed. Invisalign, a 95

Of course, your smile is far more than just
teeth. ?It?s as much about the amount of
gum on show and how your lips animate
around your teeth, as it is good teeth,? says
Dr Aulakh. Overbrushing, gum disease,
stress and hormonal issues all contribute to
recessed gums and, as Dr Okoye points out,
?he less gum you have, the older you will
look.? When gums have recessed quite far as
a result of gum disease or overbrushing, the
result is a black triangle near the base of the
tooth that feels sensitive, too. Fear not, for
the ?gum grat? can cure all, and it isn?t nearly
as bad as it sounds. ?It?s where you take tissue
from another part of the mouth, like behind
the molar teeth, and transplant it to the
recessed gum,? says Dr Okoye. ?It sounds
gruesome but only takes one to two hours.?

BOBBI BROWN EYESHADOW
IN BLACK PLUM, �.50
Before I tell you about my absolute
beauty essential, I have a confession to
make: in all my 25 years as a beauty
editor, I have never, and will never, master
liquid licky eyeliner. I have asymmetric
hooded eyes and, quite frankly, can?t be
bothered. With my make-up, as with my
entire beauty routine, I want minimum
efort, maximum results. And so I am
going to share with you the quickest and
easiest way to line your eyes, with this
universally lattering eyeshadow.
he richly pigmented deep brown with a
hint of plum genuinely suits all eye colours
and, unlike liquid or pencil liner, it does
not require a steady hand. All you need is
a short-bristle, stubby liner brush (I use the
Nars Smudge Brush, �). I then gently
pull my eye out towards my temple with
my let hand and, using the brush, gently
smudge the shadow along the lash line.
It doesn?t have to be perfect ? in fact,
the more Kate Moss, the better. Intensify
it with a brown pencil at the waterline
[where your eyelid meets your eye] for
evenings, smudge it right over the lid
and go totally Chrissie Hynde rock ?n? roll;
it really is that universal and easy to use.
I?ve used this eyeshadow as my liner
for decades, and even Bobbi Brown herself
told me it was my signature look. Trust
me, it really is the best stealth eyelinermasquerading-as-a-shadow you will ever
buy. You can thank me later, when you
ind you can apply it on the bus, Tube or
in the back of an Uber.

It?s the one ingredient that can improve any complexion. If vitamin
C isn?t part of your skincare routine, here?s how to get on-board

IN AN INDUSTRY that profers
ever-more unusual ingredients (donkey
milk, anyone?), it?s a testament to the
transformative powers of vitamin C that
it still tops skin-gredient charts. New
products promising to deliver a lawless
complexion emerge on an almost weekly
basis, but vitamin C remains the ingredient
that delivers consistent results. According
to the Pinterest 100 report, saved pins for
vitamin C serums have gone up a whopping
3,379% in the last year, while Mintel
records a 26% hike in vitamin C product
launches. So why so much buzz?
?Vitamin C is one of the best skincare
actives in the world,? says Lixirskin founder
Colette Haydon, who has created products
for some of the world?s best-known beauty
brands. ?It?s a magic quick-ix that gives you
an instant glow, but if you stick with it,
there are so many other beneits. It boosts
collagen, regulates melanin production
and scavenges free-radicals, making skin
brighter, more even-toned and lited.? he
only catch is that vitamin C is notoriously
unstable ? it doesn?t get on with light, heat
or air ? so unless you choose the right
formula, you?re wasting your money (and
potentially even doing your skin more
harm than good). So here?s how to navigate
the vitamin C circus and reap the rewards?

Hundreds of products list vitamin C on
the label but not all vitamin C is created
equal. ?L-ascorbic acid is the most potent
because it?s the purest form of vitamin C
that the skin can use,? says Colette. ?Lots of
formulations use vitamin C-derivatives
instead ? like magnesium ascorbyl
phosphate and sodium ascorbyl phosphate
? because they?re a bit more stable. But
these all have to be converted to L-ascorbic
acid to be beneicial to skin, so they?re not
quite as efective.? If you want to go for
L-ascorbic acid, be prepared to try a slightly
unusual type of product,
rather than a traditional
serum, because it?s an
especially inicky
ingredient ? it needs
water to be active but,
once mixed with water,
it oxidises and loses its
power over time.
Lixirskin Vitamin C Paste [2], �, is a
clever ?lash mask?, designed to be massaged
into skin with damp ingers every morning.
?he advantage of this is that the vitamin C
stays stable and is only activated when you
apply the water,? says Colette. Just leave it on
for a few minutes while you brush your
teeth to allow it to penetrate, then rinse. ?It
creates an immediate glow and reduces the
oxidised sebum and proteins that give skin
that grey, urban look.?
If you don?t mind playing mixologist,
vitamin C powders like he Ordinary
100% L-Ascorbic Acid Powder [6], �90
? which you blend with your moisturiser
or serum ? are also a good bet. Just don?t
go crazy as it?s powerful stuf. Start with
a pinch every three or four days until
your skin acclimatises.
Not keen to add an extra step to your
routine? Swap your usual SPF for Obagi
Medical?s new Professional-C Suncare,
�.84 ? it combines 10% L-ascorbic
acid with UVA and UVB ilters for
a free-radical-ighting dream team.

If potent actives tend to send your skin
into a tailspin, you can still get in on the
vitamin C action. ?Vitamin C sensitivity is
actually very rare,? reassures skincare guru
Paula Begoun. ?Remember, it?s the primary
antioxidant naturally found in healthy
skin. Using higher amounts of ascorbic
acid can trigger redness or stinging on
application, but these reactions tend to
subside quickly and stop completely with
ongoing use.? If your skin is extremely
sensitive, Pa
