MORE WOMEN BEHIND THE CAMERA, PLEASE
It?s awards season again and there are plenty of
deserving actresses to champion, from Olivia
Colman to Lady Gaga. But let?s not lose sight of
the facts behind the red-carpet glamour: only 8%
of Hollywood?s top films in 2018 were directed
by women ? a dismal number, not least when you
consider that in 1998 it was 9%. The focus on
gender equality since last year?s Time?s Up
movement is encouraging, of course, but it?s clear
that real progress at a structural level is lagging
way behind. The industry needs serious change to
give female film-makers the opportunities they
deserve ? which can only mean more great
cinema for the rest of us.

submerge myself in the ocean of Instagram
lies we tell about what we?re doing and how
we look and who we even are! ?Take a
snapshot of your battery!? it demands,
mid-afternoon. SHAN?T! YOU?RE NOT
THE BOSS OF ME, PHONE! I think,
which is madness, because, it definitely is.
It?s just that it?s better at getting me to use
it than it is at getting me to stop.
At 9pm every night, my newly righteous
phone goes dark. I buy myself more time
on individual apps in sneaky 15 minute
increments, until I fall into a fractious
sleep, and dream of DMs and keypads
that won?t work right.
Oh, I gave up giving up my iPhone
months ago. I?d read the book, I?d seen the
docs; I tried. I monitored the relationship
between my lowest moods and my
compulsion to fondle The Precious; that
cold, hard, germ-ridden slab of tech, my
phone. I wondered at the impact it had
on my self-esteem, my relationships.
I saw that it was Not Good, and swore to
forsake it. For the real world. For human
interaction. For the chance I might not die
crossing a road while texting after all. But
then I remembered I really needed to know
how many exes had seen my new Instagram
Story, and all lofty phone-free ambitions
were instantly abandoned.
Honestly, I?m OK with it. I am what I
am, and what I am is phone-addicted. Yet
apparently, my phone is not OK with it. It?s
as if, having discovered the havoc it?s wrought
upon man, it?s resolved to do an intervention
on us ? against itself. It?s not unlike being
diet shamed by your own cupcake.
FOLLOWING A
traumatic software
upgrade, my phone
and I have become
UPS
engaged in a bitter feud. It thinks I?m using
it too much. I think it can bugger off, given
that it was purpose-designed to addict me
in the first place; to suck me in with
twinkly lights, reward-synapse-stimulating
Likes, FOMO-fulminating functions, etc.
It started this. Not me.
You wouldn?t know it, though, to hear
how sanctimonious and judgy it?s become,
post-upgrade.
?Pick-up goal: 40 pick-ups! 20 more ?til
you?re over your goal!? it chides at, like,
7.15am, alongside a trophy emoji I can
only assume is ironic, and via an alert
panel I swipe tersely aside, as if to say: DID
I EVEN ASK FOR YOUR OPINION,
PHONE? After which, I propel myself
headlong into Pick-up #41, a doomed,
defiant Twitter session I know can only
leave me in a foul, slappy, scrappy mood.
?2hrs 14mins of screen-time today!
You?re over your usage goal, but tomorrow is
another day!? it snipes at lunchtime. Damn
straight, I think; tomorrow is another day to

EVER SINCE THE now Duke
Clockwise from above:
Samantha is turned
away from Kensington
Palace in October;
the pregnant Duchess;
??xated? Samantha on
Good Morning Britain
and Duchess of Sussex announced their
engagement in November 2017, Samantha
Markle has relentlessly criticised her
estranged half-sister. She?s branded
Meghan ?cold? for ignoring their father,
calling her a ?Duchass? in one Twitter
diatribe, and is said to be publishing
a tell-all memoir later this year entitled
In The Shadows Of The Duchess.
Throughout the saga, Meghan and
Prince Harry have remained resolutely
silent, apparently telling advisors not to
retaliate ? even as it prompted so-called
crisis talks among palace courtiers.
But now it appears the royal couple have
taken action. News broke last week that
Samantha has been put on a ?fixated
persons list? by police, as her actions pose
a ?reputational risk? to the royal family.
According to The Sunday Times,
Meghan?s private protection officers have
briefed detectives from Scotland Yard?s
Fixated Threat Assessment Centre (FTAC)
1
?about the embarrassment that Samantha
could cause if she attempts another
public rapprochement?.
The move is said to have been prompted
by Samantha turning up at Kensington
Palace with masks of Harry and Meghan.
At the time, despite demanding to see her
sister, she was turned away by security.
?There is big potential for some major
embarrassment for the royals,? a source told
the paper. ?Samantha could make a scene
and create headlines with her actions ? and
let?s face it, she?s kind of already done that.?
According to the website of the FTAC,
the first joint NHS/police unit in the UK,
its purpose is to ?assess and manage the
risks from lone individuals who harass,
stalk or threaten public figures?. The body
specifically works with high-profile public
figures, including politicians and royals. It
takes part in security planning for future
events, arranges for ?fixated people? to be
monitored and educates the police on how
to spot ?concerning? behaviour. The FTAC
also has staff in control rooms at major
events ?to enable rapid intervention?.
The move appears to mark a more
proactive attitude from the Sussexes? side in
the wake of criticism surrounding Meghan?s
entry into the royal family. At Christmas,
she was pictured laughing and smiling while
walking to church at Sandringham with the
Duchess of Cambridge, who she was said
to have reduced to tears over Charlotte?s
bridesmaid dress fitting. This friendliness
reportedly followed an intervention from
the Queen after weeks of rumoured tension
between the duchesses, as well as divisions
between Princes Harry and William.
While Kensington Palace declined to
comment on Samantha specifically, royal
insiders see the move to place her on the
list as the first official response to Meghan?s
family. ?This won?t have come from
nowhere,? said a source. ?Someone ? most
likely on Meghan?s side ? would have to
ask for her to be put on the list. There is no
doubt concern that Samantha could turn
up in a crowd brandishing a letter, and the
fact that Meghan is pregnant while all of
this is going on is particularly worrying.?
?Samantha has overstepped the mark,?
added royal biographer Robert Jobson.
?Turning up at Kensington Palace was the
moment she went too far. She?s behaved in
such a ridiculous manner ? it?s no wonder
she?s on the list.?
But if the move was the royal family?s
attempt to quell the drama, they may be
disappointed, with Samantha defending her
actions. ?I would only say that is ludicrous.
I?m not a reputational risk,? she said.
Other members of Meghan?s family are
also said to be unhappy with the report.
?Meghan?s family ? including her dad ? are
dismissing this,? a source told Grazia. ?They
don?t see any real substance or credibility
in it. Right now, the family?s stance is that
they?re not afraid and won?t be silenced.
?However, it has become very clear that
Thomas has been listening to Sam and
following her advice, and ultimately, that?s
what?s cost him his other daughter,? the
source continued. ?Thomas?s ?thick as
thieves? relationship with Sam has put an
end to any hope of a reconciliation with
Meghan. Not only is this the first step
towards a more formal approach against
Samantha and the others, but it sends
a very clear message that Meghan wants
nothing to do with her and she never
will. That will sting Samantha the most.?

a severe case of Janxiety? Symptoms include:
existential pangs about your purpose in life,
a piqued interest in green juice and a desire
to wear only dark, shapeless clothes. If that
sounds like you, then the good news is
there is a sartorial solution. Allow us to

olours, happy prints, tactile

Now?s the time for clothes that

ve director of Borgo de Nor. ?If

your brain to release dopamine and
serotonin. I think warm and vibrant
colours and prints do the same thing ? for
me, they evoke feelings of happiness and
make me feel energised.? Cue her label?s
exuberantly printed, fluid dresses.
And while feel-good fashion might
make an impact, it doesn?t have to be hard
work. Rad-dad trainers will take you
anywhere, while an elevated tracksuit is
the perfect way to ease you into the new
year. Meanwhile, the charm of a colourful
coat is, according to Jennifer, that ?you
could be wearing sweats underneath but
who needs to know?? Still sounds out of
your comfort zone? Carmen makes the
case for being bold, saying that if you take
a punt on a vibrant print but still find
yourself reaching for ?the navy and grey
staples when it comes to getting dressed,
just revisit the printed piece for spring?.
The joy of anti-Janxiety dressing is in
its ripping up of the rule book: keeping
holiday season sparkles out for a while
longer, debuting spring?s florals before
hayfever season kicks in and instinctively
throwing them together. ?Overdress ?
but buy less,? says designer Emma Brewin,
whose lime-green fluffy bucket hat is
a potent pick-me-up for now. In other
words, it?s the perfect antidote to careless
spending, affording you an opportunity
to rework pieces you already own and love.
And what could feel better than that?

?My wife could have breast
cancer ? and yet they are
denying her treatment?
British-Iranian Nazanin ZaghariRatcliffe, who works at Thomson Reuters
Foundation, was on holiday in Iran in
April 2016 when she was jailed for five
years, accused of trying to overthrow the
government ? a crime she vehemently
denies. Here, her husband Richard tells
Grazia of his fears that she has developed
breast cancer ? and plans to stage a
hunger strike to receive treatment?
A S TO L D TO A N N A S I LV E R M A N
PHOTOS: SKY NEWS, PA IMAGES
IT?S NOW BEEN a month since
Nazanin was urgently referred to an
emergency specialist after she found lumps
in her breasts and felt sharp, stabbing pains.
And yet, the prison still hasn?t allowed her
to go to hospital. She was referred by a
medic, but the head of the prison clinic,
Mr Khani, blocked her from getting the
help she might desperately need.
Breast cancer runs in Nazanin?s family
? her mum had it seven years ago and
thankfully survived. Understandably,
Nazanin is panicking and finding it hard
not to picture the worst. She?s threatening
a hunger strike later this month. I really
hope she doesn?t, but I accept that she
feels so desperate she might need to.
She worries her life is wasting away.
Back in October, she collapsed on the
floor of her cell and was lying there, unable
to move for a week. She was referred to a
neurologist then, but that was blocked too.
Ever since she was granted three days of
furlough in August, when she was allowed
to see our four-year-old daughter Gabriella,
there?s been a hardening of prison rules. The
only treatment I?ve seen anyone get since is
when a man had a heart attack. It?s part of
a general tightening of prison conditions
to show they won?t be pushed around since
things became very volatile in Iran.
I try not to google cancer symptoms
or dwell on what this could mean for
her, instead focusing on the things I can
control. But it was hard hearing her cry
over Christmas as the realisation sunk
in that she was spending it alone in
prison for another year.
Her 40th birthday was on Boxing Day
and we always thought she?d be out long
before then. Our daughter, who is currently
living with Nazanin?s parents in Tehran,
visited her in prison that day. They had
an apple tart and Gabriella blew out the
candles and made a wish that her mummy
and daddy would be let out of prison soon.
She thinks I?m in prison, too, because she
doesn?t remember seeing me any more.
She was only 21 months old when I waved
them off at Gatwick airport in April 2016,
as Nazanin took her on holiday to visit
her family. I?ve tried to get a visa so I can
collect her, but I haven?t been granted one.
As far as Gabriella?s concerned, I?m just
a presence on the phone or a screen. She
asked Nazanin, ?Mummy, have you ever met
Daddy?? That really upset her. But then how
could Gabriella understand life before this?
Nazanin and I realised that if this
Christmas passed and we still hadn?t made
progress, we?d need to step up our campaign
to get her help. We?ve tried asking nicely
and asking loudly; now we?re going to push
for a meeting at the UN security council,
and we?ve requested diplomatic protection.
It?s like a staircase, and every so often
we need to take a step up and make it
clear we?re not going to let this go away.
The thousand-day mark was a threshold
for me; we crossed it and I?m stepping
up the staircase. Hopefully, this will be
the final step we make.

?IT?S 100% OVER?
ZAYN AND GIGI
CALL IT QUITS
(AGAIN)
AFTER THREE YEARS of an on/off
relationship, sources confirmed to Grazia
last week that model Gigi Hadid and
singer Zayn Malik have split up.
Suspicions were first aroused when
pictures emerged of Gigi spending New
Year?s Eve in fancy dress with her best
friend Taylor Swift, rather than with
Zayn and his family. It was in stark
contrast to the year before, when Gigi
posted a series of loving pictures of her and
Zayn celebrating together over the festive
period. The couple also hadn?t been
photographed together since October,
causing fans to question whether their
relationship was over ? speculation that
reached fever pitch when it was noted
he had unfollowed her on Instagram.
?Gigi and Zayn have broken up,? a source
told Grazia. ?Yes, they do get back together
a lot, but this was a big break-up. The
relationship is finally off and Gigi is keen
not to feel humiliated by it all, as she

The move comes after E! in the US

spending time apart since early November?,

so that they could ?focus on themselves
and their separate careers?. Gigi, according
to a separate report by Us Weekly, ?tried
hard to make it work?, but Zayn had
?a lot of his own issues that she couldn?t
help him get through?.
Grazia understands that friends were
also concerned the relationship had
become ?toxic? ? not least because Gigi,
23, was said to have isolated herself from
her social circle. ?The relationship was
draining Gigi,? said a source. Indeed, Us
Weekly also claimed, ?It got too much. She
cut herself off from her friends and instead
focused all her time and energy on Zayn.?
In the past, Zayn has publicly spoken
about his mental health struggles; in 2015,
he announced that he suffered from an
eating disorder while in One Direction.
?Every area of my life was so regimented
and controlled,? he said at the time. ?It was
the one area where I could say: ?No, I?m
not eating that.?? He has also opened up
about ?extreme anxiety?, which led him
to cancel numerous concerts (in 2016,
he cancelled two shows in three months).
He has not toured to promote his second
album, the 27-song Icarus Falls, released
last month, and which only reached
number 64 in the charts.
The last time the couple broke up was
in March 2018, when Zayn announced
that they had decided to part ways after
an ?incredibly meaningful, loving and fun
relationship? I have a huge amount of
respect and adoration for Gigi as a woman
and friend.? Gigi then echoed his feelings
of amicability, writing, ?I want nothing but

husband Dale
Christmas, the
Whole30. We are
both self-conscious about our bodies. I
would never, ever, call him a balloon ? mostly
because he isn?t one and I don?t think that?s
how you should talk to the person you love.
But also because I know he was bullied about
his weight when he was a little boy. Similarly,
he knows that I struggled with anorexia in my
teens, and any comments about weight gain
will make me obsessive and miserable. For
both of us, body image is a mental health issue
first, and we need to treat it with sensitivity.
However, Brook has said that Parisi?s
words inspired her to lose weight and go
on to drop two dress sizes: ?It?s about body
confidence ? you?ve got more energy, you
just feel so much better, it?s nice.? The couple
are both models and I suspect they have
both developed a fairly thick skin in order to
survive within the industry. When you?re a
model, your body is your job. If someone
tells you they need you to look different,
you can do what I would do ? burst into
tears and eat nine slices of toast ? or you can
bite your tongue and keep your career going.
I still don?t think Parisi?s comments were
kind or loving, but the context ? one
model critiquing another ? means they
probably weren?t intended to be as cruel as
they sounded to the rest of us. Perhaps he?d
expect Brook to say the same thing to him.
Still, there is a fine line between tough
love and causing a person real hurt. The
most painful part about dating someone
who pressured me to lose weight was that
he made me feel as though the way I looked
was all he cared about. Eventually, I realised
that what I actually needed to lose was him.
I believe that our partners should
encourage us to become our happiest selves.
If Brook genuinely feels happier than she
did before, perhaps Parisi acted in her best
interests. Still, if you want to lose weight
there are plenty of ways for your partner
to support you ? without feeling the need
to call you a balloon. If they do, I?d suggest
you just cut the string and float away.

LAST MONTH, the Kardashians? annual
Christmas (Kristmas?) card featured Kim,
Kylie, Kourtney and Khlo� and their eight
young children. Now, it appears there will
be at least one more baby on next year?s.
It emerged last week that Kim
Kardashian and Kanye West are expecting
a fourth child in May, apparently a boy,
with a surrogate. It comes less than a year
after their daughter Chicago was born,
also via a (different) surrogate mother.
The couple already have North, five, and
Saint, three, who Kim gave birth to.
They have chosen to use a surrogate for
a second time because Kim suffered from
pre-eclampsia ? a condition that causes
issues with the placenta ? during her first
two pregnancies, later revealing that a doctor
had warned her against carrying a child
again. She has also described complications
following the birth of her first daughter,
North, a condition called placenta accreta,
as ?the most painful experience of my life?.
Kim and Kanye were said to have paid
their first surrogate, La?Reina Haynes,
$45,000 to carry Chicago, and are thought
to have used a specialised surrogacy agency
(it?s believed the process is ?sped up? for
celebrities). A-listers like the Kardashians
will often only use their first names in the
early stages of the process. Other celebrities
are said to have sourced fitness instructors,
chefs and doulas for surrogates, with one
Hollywood insider reporting to Page Six
that A-list couples have even been known to
rent their surrogate a home nearby so they
can be close when she goes into labour.

Yet despite the couple reportedly being
?over the moon? at the news, one LA-based
source told Grazia last week that the
announcement had ?sent shock waves?
through the wider Kardashian family.
?It was well known to the family that
Kim and Kanye had another embryo
stored, but the news still came as a shock,?
said the insider. ?The Kardashians were all
concerned about whether or not having
another child would be right for the
couple, particularly as Kanye has been
going through a lot of personal issues.?
Indeed, despite Kim publicly defending
her husband?s erratic behaviour on social
media last year, multiple sources believe
there has been friction between the pair.
?Kim and Kanye often don?t speak when
they are together, even if others are around
them. They didn?t say a word to each other
on a business trip last June, for example,
leading many to wonder if the marriage
had become a business deal, or just for
the cameras,? one source told Grazia.
So why would they be having another
child together? ?Having four children has
always been Kim?s long-term dream. She?s
put up with so much in her marriage and
has always held on for the kids and to
complete her dream of having a large family.?
Kim has previously revealed that Kanye
was ?harassing? her to have seven children,
but has admitted that she has never wanted
that many, and it is thought she won?t have
any more after their fourth child is born.
Despite having a baby on the way, there
is still speculation about whether Kim and
Kanye?s marriage will last, not least after
Kim reportedly spent time with Hollywood
attorney Laura Wasser over the New Year.
(Laura masterminded Kim?s divorce from
Kris Humphries in 2013.) ?There?s been
a lot of talk about whether Kim will stay
with Kanye once the baby arrives,? said the
source. ?Last year, when she was thinking
of leaving him, she had a solid exit plan in
place. It?s been shelved for now, but the
strategy is still there if the time comes.?
My husband and I already had a son, Thomas,
who?s now 16. We desperately wanted
another child, but I had a stillbirth followed by
four miscarriages. After IVF failed, we started
looking at adoption, but the process was
proving dif?cult with endless bureaucracy.
Surrogacy seemed like our last chance so,
in 2009, we got in touch with an agency in
Minnesota. In the US, unlike the UK, you pay
a surrogate. It might sound odd, but I wanted
to compensate someone for doing us such a
huge favour, so didn?t resent the �,000 cost.
We used a donor egg from one woman
? a nurse who already had triplets following
fertility issues and wanted to help someone
else get pregnant ? and my husband?s sperm.
The resulting embryo was then implanted into
another woman, the surrogate. We kept in
touch throughout the nine months and were
there for the labour, which was dif?cult after
having had a stillbirth. But within just three
hours our daughter, Hope, came yelling into this
world. There were no problems with bonding;
I?d waited so long for another child, I loved
her straight away. Besides, the baby needs you
immediately ? there?s no time to question its
origins, say, or wish she looked more like me.
I have always been honest with Hope about
how she was born. We?re still in touch with
the surrogate and egg donor, and if she wants
to meet them in the future, I?d encourage that.
For us, surrogacy was a positive experience
because someone wonderful, who otherwise
wouldn?t be in the world, is here now.

And Seaside Towns?, a memoir on her

IF YOU?RE NOT scrambling tofu,
frothing oat milk or sprinkling nutritional
yeast on your dinner (or at least talking
about it), are you really doing January at
all? With record numbers of people
signing up to do ?Veganuary? this year,
veganism has never been so fashionable.
Fashionable? The carnivores among us
might question that description. Because
while veganism is increasingly popular,
vegan clothing has always suffered from
something of an image problem: too
dowdy, too hempy, too hard to find. But
all that is changing. This month, Marks &
Spencer (home of the cauliflower ?steak?) is
expanding its vegan-friendly offering into
footwear and accessories. The styles will be
identifiable by an M&S vegan logo already
used on its food, but other than that even
the most steadfast leather devotees will be
charmed by the mules and slingbacks.
Technology has helped elevate the new
breed of vegan materials. ?Vegan leather
went through a lot of improvements in
recent years,? says Sandra Sandor of cool

soft bombers and boiler suits are a fashion
insider fave. Nanushka also exemplifies
the renewed emphasis on design when
it comes to ethical clothes. ?By being
sustainable we don?t need to sacrifice style,?
says Sandra. Sascha Camilli, founder and
editor-in-chief of digital vegan fashion
magazine Vilda, agrees. ?When I started
the magazine, no one even knew what I
meant by ?vegan fashion?, and today it?s
a major trend,? she says. ?Fashion events
such as Helsinki Fashion Week are
banning leather from the catwalks and
Gucci and Burberry are now refusing to
work with fur.? And next month, LA will
host the first ever Vegan Fashion Week.
And demand is definitely rising ? as
Sascha points out, the vegan leather
industry is predicted to be worth $85bn
by 2025. ?Brands like Shrimps, Angela
Roi and Dauntless NYC are upping the
style stakes to rival traditional fashion
and step into the mainstream.?
We?ll raise a glass of oat milk to that.

MEET ELIZABETH WARREN:
THE WOMAN
TAKING ON TRUMP
Last week, a divorced mum of two, who put
herself through law school before entering
politics, became the first woman to say she?ll
run against Donald Trump in the hotly
contested race to be the next US President.
So, does she actually stand a chance? US
political correspondent Rosa Prince reports?
PHOTOS: GETTY
IT WAS THE EARLY ?70s and the now
US presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren
was driving her toddler home from nursery
when she smashed her VW Beetle into the
car in front. Desperate to keep the child
awake so she would nap only once they got
home, giving Elizabeth some precious study
time, she had taken her hand off the wheel
to lean over and tickle the girl. Further
distraction was in knowing her marriage to
high-school sweetheart Jim was on the rocks
? he wanted her to stay home and keep
house; she was completing her law degree.
Forty-five years on, Elizabeth will need
all the multitasking skills she picked up
while juggling two small children, her legal
studies and a dying relationship for her
next challenge: running for President.
Last week, the 69-year-old became the
first senior Democrat to throw her hat into
the ring to take on Donald Trump in what
is likely to be the most hotly contested
presidential race in living memory.
On the surface it seemed like a small step
? she merely announced she was setting up
an ?exploratory committee? to consider a
run. But the term is Washington DC code
for declaring one?s candidacy, and the news
Elizabeth announcing
her 2020 run
against Trump
electrified Democrats desperate for a
credible figure to take on the most divisive
leader America has ever known.
Elizabeth certainly seems to have
the qualifications to become the USA?s
first ever female President. Born into a
struggling Oklahoma family ? her father
lost his job after suffering a heart attack
when she was 11 ? she put herself through
law school and became an academic
specialising in bankruptcy. An adviser
to Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack
Obama, she came to national prominence
after foreseeing the 2008 financial crisis.
And, as the Senator for Massachusetts,
she has proved a thorn in President
Trump?s side since he?s been in the White
House. Politically, she?s unafraid of taking
on big corporations, including Wall Street,
and positions herself on the left side of the
Democrat party, standing for greater
worker rights and an increase in the
minimum wage. As she put it in the video
she used to launch her campaign: ?Every
person in America should be able to work
hard, play by the same set of rules, and take
care of themselves and the people they
love. That?s what I?m fighting for.?
But, while her credentials are impeccable,
Elizabeth faces a tough fight to win the
Democratic nomination against a host of
candidates likely to include former Vice
President Joe Biden; Bernie Sanders, the
left-wing firebrand; and Beto O?Rourke, an
exciting young Texan congressman. Many
critics say that if Americans were not ready
to elect a woman in Hillary Clinton in
2016, they will not warm to Elizabeth.
She also courted controversy last year
over accusations she has used her claims of
having Native American ancestry to advance
her career. Trump described her as a ?fake
Pocahontas? and demanded she take a DNA
test, which she did ? and which ?strongly
supported? her heritage (although the ?vast
majority? of her ancestory is European).
Still, there?s a long way to go ? the
primaries to decide the nomination of the
candidate who will run for President in
2020 do not even begin until early next year.
These days, Elizabeth has a happier home
life. Six months after she and Jim divorced,
she unexpectedly met, proposed to and
married fellow law professor Bruce Mann;
they will celebrate their 40th wedding
anniversary at the height of the campaign
next year. The couple recently bought a
golden retriever puppy, Bailey, who Elizabeth
says ?piddles everywhere?. As she travels the
country to persuade voters they are ready
for a female President, it looks like it will be
Bruce who ends up doing the toilet training.

SKIWEAR

9
WEAR ON
THE STREET
FORGET CATWALKS and red carpets
? if you want to flex your style muscles, it?s
time to hit the slopes. Take it from the A-list,
who last week upped skis and ventured to
the likes of Aspen and St Moritz.
But before you think life away from
gowns offers a chance to press pause on
fashion-forward looks, take note. Skiwear
is now a considered extension of your
wardrobe, not an afterthought; an
opportunity to fuse the practicality of
workout gear with the unabashed glamour
of all-in-ones, furry hats and OTT sunnies.
Throw in a fondue and what?s not to love?
So even if you?re not gallivanting in
Gstaad, you can still take style lessons
from the slopes. ?The key to an easy
transition from slopes to street is a timeless
aesthetic with thoughtful tailoring, so your
pieces extend beyond ski holidays,? says
Erin Isakov, founder of ski brand Erin
Snow, which recently collaborated with
Woolmark on a line of skiwear in merino
wool. ?Our Jes pants are equally suited to
the streets of London as the Alps. They can
be worn for travel to the slopes, skiing, out
to dinner? you?ll want to wear this pant
every day during the winter back home.?
Perhaps the most vital lesson we can
learn from the slopes, however, is the
importance of a great jacket (read: padded
and polished). The Net-A-Porter ski
customer likes Moncler Grenoble?s
outerwear, and the site?s fashion and
buying director, Elizabeth von der Goltz,
takes her Templa quilted coat on and
off the slopes. ?I?m a big fan of this brand
as it is equally stylish and practical.?
Choosing versatile outerwear doesn?t
necessarily mean playing it safe. Jane
Gottschalk, creative director of the brand
to be seen in, Perfect Moment, says it?s ?not
just about the generic black puffer any
more. Bright colours are the trend of the
moment ? particularly with the Americans,
who aren?t afraid of colour.? Electric, even
fluoro, hues aren?t just about showing off
? they are an easy way to amp up a muted
winter wardrobe in the city, too.
What celeb ski style also teaches us is the
importance of a strong accent piece: from
a branded beanie to a statement knit (Katy
Perry even takes a Chanel bum bag to the
slopes). Indeed, with reflective shades
and hiking boots already en vogue, slope
style may just be the next stage in the
unstoppable athleisure juggernaut. A
snowy January might not have the same
romance as a white Christmas ? but it will
certainly do wonders for your wardrobe.

spotted reading Barry O?Reilly?s Unlearn: Let
Go Of Past Success To Achieve Extraordinary
Results [1], a book about rethinking your
strategies for longer-lasting success. How cool
is it that she is humble enough to read a book
with a title like that ? not least in public?
Here?s a woman who knows the truth:
that self-help books are both soothing and
inspiring. They reassure you that someone
else has figured out the thing that is
bugging you, and has fixed it. When you?re
struggling, they help you feel less alone.
For a long time, self-help was the love
that dare not speak its name. Many people
thought it was neurotic, corny and, er,
self-obsessed. As a proud self-help addict,
I often felt I was on my own. But now I
know I?m in the company of someone
like Serena, my faith in the power of
motivational messages and channelling
Oprah at all times has been vindicated.
I?ve read thousands of tomes on selfimprovement over the past 20 years, from
I?m OK, You?re OK to Feel The Fear And Do
3.
It Anyway (and even written one of my own
? How To Own The Room [8]). They have
cheered me in sad times and inspired me in
happy times. One even sort of helped me
find my husband: I was obsessed with The
Rules in the late ?90s, which basically
encouraged you to ignore any men who
annoyed you. (Yes, I know.) It meant I was
happily single for two years before I met
someone who I felt deserved my time ? and
20 years later we are still together (thanks to
several other self-help books, I should add).
The self-improvement market in the US
alone is worth $9bn a year, with 5% growth
forecast for the next five years. The bestsellers in the industry now have seriously
pumped titles like The Subtle Art Of Not
Giving A F*ck [2] by Mark Manson, and
Unf*ck Yourself: Get Out Of Your Head And
Into Your Life [3] by Gary John Bishop.
Meanwhile, some of the biggest successes
are naturally by women, for women. Last
year I loved Jen Sincero?s You Are A Badass
[4] (about career and money), Elizabeth
Gilbert?s Big Magic [5] (on creativity) and
Bren� Brown?s Daring Greatly [6] (about
balancing strength and vulnerability in
all aspects of your life).
But my current favourite encourages you
to live your life as if you are in the Navy
SEALs. Make Your Bed [7] by Admiral
William H. McRaven, a former Commander
of US Special Operations Forces, picks up
on the trend for executing small, simple
actions combined with a change in mindset.
Make your bed every morning so that you
have completed at least one task. Don?t get
distracted by annoying people, and embrace
imperfection because nothing is perfect.
I?ve actually met and interviewed Serena
before, so the next time I see her, I will take
her a copy. Although I suspect she has
someone else to make her bed.

The Art Of Brilliant Speaking?, is out now

the time, CK responded ?these stories are
true? and sort of apologised. (He didn?t
actually use the word sorry, instead saying:
?What I learned later in life, too late, is
that when you have power over another
person, asking them to look at your dick
isn?t a question. It?s a predicament.?) This
broke just as the #MeToo movement was
gaining momentum, and it seemed CK,
after the landslide caused by the Weinstein
allegations, would be one of a number of
men (along with a few women) to bite the
dust. Time was up, or so Oprah told us.
Women were coming forward, regardless
of how powerful, famous, funny or even
self-aware their abusers were.
In his non-apology, CK told the world
that he would ?step back and take a long
time to listen?. And yet, in late August
2018, less than a year after the revelations,
he performed a surprise gig in a club in
New York. His appearance launched a
thousand think pieces asking just how long
is long enough; when and how can a
person who abuses power and sexually
violates, harasses or intimidates women be
back in the spotlight? Female journalists
and comedians spoke loudly and slowly:
rehabilitation must be cautious, vulnerable,
sensitive, patient. These men must try to
truly understand what they did wrong.
Obviously, CK does not read think
pieces. Because last week, a leaked audio
recording of his latest stand-up
performance found its way to YouTube.
Along with jokes made at the expense of
the Parkland shooting survivors and his
enjoyment of the word ?retarded?, he?s also
feeling very sorry for himself. ?So, what
kind of year did you guys have? I bet none
of you had the same year that I had? You
ever have a whole bad year?? CK said, his
sense of victimhood palpable. In response
to a disapproving audience member, he
charges: ?What?re you gonna do, gonna
take away my birthday? My life is over,
I don?t give a shit.?
The outcry was immediate, but perhaps
film director Judd Apatow summed up the
dismay best, tweeting that CK ?can?t look
inward? and instead ?this is a new way of
looking at life through the eyes of someone
who wants to be the number one victim.

THESE MEN ARE
REFUSING TO
GET THE MEMO?
IN THEIR HEADS
THEY HAVE BEEN
WRONGED
He is attacking people who might be seen
as more worthy of compassion because he
believes he was wronged.?
Sadly, no one has yet to offer such a
plausible theory regarding Kevin Spacey?s
utterly unfathomable video released on
Christmas Eve, where he plays his former
character, House Of Cards? Frank
Underwood (the role he was eventually
axed from due to allegations against him),
and possibly himself, talking about life
and art and truth and death, all while
wearing an apron with dancing Santa
Clauses on. Yes, really.
Spacey was also dislodged from up high
in the Weinstein avalanche, first accused of
sexual misconduct by actor Anthony Rapp
in 2017. Within a week a dozen more men
came forward claiming Spacey harassed,
assaulted or attempted to rape them, some
saying they were teens at time. Yet one
thing is clear from the bizarrest three
minutes of video footage you?ll ever see:
this is another man who feels that he?s the
one who has been wronged. ?I?m certainly
not going to pay the price for the things
I didn?t do,? he says. The video arrived on
the same day that Spacey was charged with
sexually assaulting another teenager in
2016. ?You wouldn?t rush to judgement
without facts,? he says, staring down the
camera, drenched in a sly menace, an
unnerving meta performance that seems
to suggest this whole thing might just be
a game to him.
In the last 14 months, we?ve watched
the mighty fall amidst a collective
realisation that a culture of power and
sexual harassment is epidemic ? and
unacceptable. We have seen dangerous
men brought to justice, such as Larry
Nassar, the American Olympic gymnastics
doctor, who was convicted of serial child
molesting. We have seen survivors corner
senators in a lift demanding to be heard;
we have seen celebrities dress in black
on the red carpet at last year?s Golden
Globes, giving stirring acceptance
speeches. So Time?s Up, right? Apparently
not, according to CK and Spacey. Their
recent public statements appear to suggest
they think their comeback is only just
beginning. Yes, despite the groundswell,
despite the endless think pieces, despite
Oprah, these men are refusing to get the
memo. They are still demanding their seat
at the table because in their heads they
have been wronged. Why won?t these
men wake up?
Two weeks ago Keira Knightley said she
was worried men are excluded from the
#MeToo movement. ?It?s a really tricky
discussion,? she said, ?but I don?t know
how we move forward without engaging
men.? And she?s right. We need men to
understand this is their issue as much as it?s
ours. But that can?t happen until there?s a
serious cultural upheaval, one #MeToo has
failed to yet deliver. Spacey and CK have
proved that a landscape remains whereby
some men still feel so secure in their power,
so deeply rooted in it, that despite ? in the
comedian?s case at least ? confessing to his
crimes, they can still demand sympathy;
they can still play the victim. To be
knocked from their pedestals is not
a soul-searching journey of self-reflection
in which they ask themselves tough
questions, but, instead, they have doubled
down on their sense of entitlement,
twisting accusations of sexual misconduct
into an overreaction that should have been
forgotten by now; an overreaction that is
getting in the way of their lives, publicly
wronging and shaming them. And the
worst thing is that, in all this, the actual
victims are all but forgotten.

I?M STILL
A WORK IN
PROGRESS
Jennifer Lopez talks to Jane Mulkerrins about
mistakes, marriages and growing up, as she returns to
her romcom roots ? starring in her first film in three
years, perhaps appropriately called Second Act?
singer, actor and TV star Jennifer Lopez has been
at the sharp end of show business for almost 30 years.
She began her career as a ?Fly Girl?, one of the dancers
on the sketch comedy show In Living Color, in 1991,
before moving into acting, becoming the first Latina
to earn more than $1million for a film (Out Of Sight,
1998). Then, she smoothly manoeuvred into the music
industry, becoming the first woman to simultaneously
have a number-one album and number-one film in the
US ? an achievement not yet equalled. Her perfumes
are the most successful celebrity line in the world, with
sales exceeding $2billion, and she?s been credited with
influencing a dramatic change in ideals of a woman?s
body shape (a change on which others, most notably
Kim Kardashian, have further capitalised).
She dominated headlines after the Video Music
Awards last summer with her medley of hits to
celebrate her prestigious Video Vanguard Award,
and remains a firm fixture on Time magazine?s list of
the 100 most influential people in the world. Now
she?s about to take the lead in a new movie that?s being
billed as the modern day interpretation of Working
Girl ? a film that Hollywood are hoping can reinvent
the out-of-favour romcom genre.
So perhaps it?s no coincidence that the past few
weeks have seen Jennifer turn up the volume on her
already glamorous look. It takes a particular type of
diva to pull off Valentino capes and butterscotch Fendi
leather, never mind the acres of hot pink Giambattista
Valli gown that dwarfed her 6ft 2in fianc� A-Rod.
Indicative of a new-found confidence, she?s also been
toying with a more playful style, like the Natasha Zinko
?thong? trousers she wore last November. It?s certainly
resonating with the fashion pack ? Versace?s pre-fall ?19
show included a new iteration of that iconic, navelplunging gown Jennifer wore to the Grammys in 2000.

????? ??????????? ?????? "What's News" VK.COM/WSNWS
And yet, says 49-year-old Jennifer, ?I feel like I have
only just got comfortable, and am finally confident in
who I am and what I do. I really wish I would have
found this confidence in my early thirties, but it took
me a long time to get there.?
?I?m still a work in progress, by the way,? she adds.
?But I do now feel that this is not a mistake, it?s not
a fluke ? this is what I do and I?m good at it.?
Jennifer reports that she hasn?t always felt she?s had
the backing of the media. ?They would say nasty things
about me: that I was spoiled, that I wasn?t talented,
that I couldn?t sing and I couldn?t dance and I couldn?t
act. Now, I realise, it was actually me who thought
that. The world mirrors whatever your insecurities are.?
We?re in a hotel room in Los Angeles, the city that
Jennifer now calls home, though she has lost none of
her trademark New York twang. Nor has she altered
her signature style; she is dressed all in bronze ? silk,
wide-legged trousers and a polo neck ? her hair in
a topknot, huge hoops in her ears, and her fingers
bedecked with multiple diamond rings.
She looks fantastic ? glossy, sexy, feminine, and is
in unfeasibly good shape (a punishing run of 70 live
shows as part of her Las Vegas residency will do that
for you, I imagine). The only evidence of any ageing
whatsoever is the pair of heavy-rimmed tortoiseshell
spectacles she is sporting.
But more so even than her looks, it?s Jennifer?s
energy that is youthful ? she speaks quickly and
urgently, fizzing with enthusiasm and authenticity. It?s
not hard to see why she remains a wildly successful
one-woman entertainment industry, simultaneously
straddling her Las Vegas residency, TV series and films.
I?VE TRAVELLED
THE WORLD, BUT
I?M STILL JUST
A GIRL FROM
THE BRONX
And it?s clear that some of her new-found
confidence is due, in part, to her current relationship.
Alongside her three marriages ? for less than a year in
her twenties to Cuban waiter Ojani Noa; filing for
divorce nine months into her second, with former
backing dancer Cris Judd in her early thirties; then
for 10 years to salsa singer Marc Anthony, the father
of her twins, Emme and Max, now 10 years old ? she?s
also had high-profile relationships with P Diddy and
Ben Affleck, to whom she was engaged.
Since February 2017, she has been dating former
New York Yankees baseball star, 43-year-old Alex
Rodriguez, aka A-Rod. A few weeks after we meet,
Rodriguez posts a shot of Jennifer wearing an
enormous rock on her ring finger to Instagram,
prompting speculation that the couple may be engaged.
?I have learnt a lot from Alex,? she tells me. ?He
always says, ?Mistakes don?t define you. It?s what you
????? ??????????? ?????? "What's News" VK.COM/WSNWS

Clockwise from bottom left: with husbands Ojani Noa,
Cris Judd and Marc Anthony; boyfriend Alex Rodriguez;
with Vanessa Hudgens and Leah Remini at the Second Act
premiere in New York; as Maya opposite Milo Ventimiglia
do after you fall down that matters the most ? that?s
what defines your character.??
Sportsmen are, I note, masters of the motivational
speech. ?He will tell you, ?Sport is life,?? she says, grinning.
?He says that all the time. I?m like, ?I got it, baby.??
Along with matching Jennifer in terms of
professional success and wealth (the 10-year, $252
million contract he signed when he joined the Texas
Rangers was the most lucrative in baseball history),
Rodriguez has his own high-profile relationship history,
too. He was married for five years until 2008 to Cynthia
Scurtis, the mother of his two children, and has dated
Kate Hudson, Cameron Diaz and, most famously,
Madonna. Jennifer believes they would not have had
a successful relationship had they met any earlier.
?He has said it was too crazy, and I didn?t know him
back then, so I am going to take his word for it,? she
shrugs. ?And I needed to bounce around a little bit
and figure myself out. I wasn?t ready for the healthiest
things, because I needed to figure out how to be
healthy first ? how to have self-worth, value, deal
with my insecurities.?
?We are both having a second act in many ways,?
she adds, thoughtfully.
That sentiment could not be more fitting, given
the title of her latest film, which we are here today to
discuss. In Second Act, on which she is also a producer,
Jennifer plays Maya, a hard-working supermarket
employee with frustrated ambitions.
It?s a role that she had no trouble relating to.
?If I hadn?t have gone into show business, I probably
would be doing something similar ? living in the
Bronx, married with kids, doing a regular job.?
Maya feels the world is unfairly skewed in favour of
those who are ?book-smart? and not ?street-smart?. ?I
think it?s true ? the masses don?t get to go to Harvard,?
says Jennifer. ?It?s the elite who get those breaks ? most
people are Maya. And not just women ? men too.?
That includes her boyfriend. ?Alex watched the film,
and that?s the element that he loved the most,? she says. ?He
got drafted [given a contract by a baseball team] when
he was 18, and always hated that he didn?t go to college.
He is in the private equity world now, and everyone he
meets, or who works for him, went to Harvard. But we
both found our way. If you don?t have those kinds of
breaks and opportunities from your parents or your
background, but you are smart and talented and
ambitious, you have to find your own way in.?
While she may now have a net worth estimated
at $380 million, and live in a Bel-Air mansion with
its own swimming pond and beach, Jennifer maintains
she truly is still Jenny From The Block. ?It?s like if
you?re from Italy,? she suggests. ?Just because you don?t
live in Italy any more, you?re still Italian. It?s the same
thing for me, being from the Bronx. Even though
I?ve travelled the world, and I live in Los Angeles
now, I?m still just a girl from the Bronx.?
Alongside her fearsome work ethic, Jennifer
believes non-stop evolution is the secret to staying on
top. ?I am constantly trying to evolve, and to not get
stuck. It happens to people ? you look at them and
think, ?She got stuck, or she let herself go.??
Jennifer plans to allow nothing of the sort to
happen to her. ?There?s this terrible idea that you get
to a certain age and you just plummet downwards.
I don?t believe that at all. You can always reinvent.
You can always make a change. You can always keep
growing. I believe that you can keep getting better and
better and better. The only thing stopping you is you.?
Second Act is in cinemas nationwide from 25 January

do you like your job? Were you
excited to reach your desk this bleak
January morning? Perhaps not. Recent
findings show that only 8% of the UK
workforce are actually enthusiastic
about their jobs, meaning a huge 92%
of us were dreading today?s commute.
These stats are partly why combating
workplace misery has become the
mission of Bruce Daisley, European
VP of Twitter and host of the podcast
Eat, Sleep, Work, Repeat. His latest
book, The Joy Of Work, is designed to
make us fall back in love with our job
again ? something, he says, that can only
happen when we fix our work culture.
Daisley?s book debunks many
long-held assumptions about the
workplace, such as the notion that
open-plan offices are conducive to
great work, or that longer working
hours equals more work and, most
crucially, that happiness in the office
means no work is getting done (it
actually makes us more productive).
All this makes sense, but how does
it help us day-to-day? After all, we
can?t build walls in our offices or ask
our boss to stop emailing us at 9pm
on a Sunday. Or can we? ?People feel
powerless,? agrees Daisley, who insists
he?s targeting the average working
person, not the high-powered CEO.
?But we can all gradually improve
work a little bit, for ourselves and
for everyone, even just by making
suggestions about these things at team
meetings and starting a conversation
about workplace happiness.?
92% of us aren?t happy at
work. In our eight-page
special, we look at ways to
turn that around, starting
with simple tactics we can
all use to fall back in love
with our jobs again?
WORDS MARIE-CLAIRE CHAPPET
FIND THE
?I? IN TEAM
Daisley argues that work should be like
that bit on a flight when they tell you to
fix your own oxygen mask before helping
anyone else. If we want to improve our
work culture in general, we have to first
figure out how to make ourselves happy.
?Happiness at work starts with selfawareness,? agrees Dr Annie McKee,
a US-based business consultant and
university lecturer, whose book How To Be
Happy At Work became a bestseller last year.
?It?s about knowing what is necessary for
you ? what you need and what you want.?
That?s advice Isabella, 30, a Londonbased PR executive, tried to follow. Last
summer she quit her job, after isolating
what would make her happy at work and
realising that her current position couldn?t
offer her that. A twist in the tale meant
that when she communicated this to her
boss as she handed in her notice, they
scouted out another position within her
company that more effectively met her
needs. ?It made me feel valued by my job,?
she says, ?but also that there is power in
finding out what you want from work and
asking for it instead of just giving up.?
We may not all be so lucky, but knowing
what makes us happy can also be applicable
to improving our current job. Too many
of us accept that we must all work the
same way ? what Daisley calls ?learned
helplessness? ? but in finding out what
works best for us personally, we can be
both happier and more productive.
One of his suggestions is ?Monk Mode
Mornings?? figuring out the hours of the
day during which we are most efficient and
removing ourselves from email and other
distractions over that time. He suggests
keeping track of how much more work you
get done during these digi-blackouts, in
order to prove the utility of it to your boss.
?Most people find the mornings, say 9am
or earlier, to be the most efficient time,? says
Daisley, ?but this differs for everyone, so it?s
important to find a time that suits you.?
WORK LESS,
AC H I E V E M O R E
?Work is the lie we tell ourselves,? says
Daisley, who is keen to deconstruct our
obsession with overworking ? a product
not just of our bosses or our constant
connectivity to work (the smartphone
has added roughly 2.5 hours to the average
working day), but of our blind assumption
that we have to be working all hours of
the day to get things done. He calls this
?the evil mill-owner inside you?.

R E PO RT
3 SIMPLE STEPS TO
G E T Y O U S TA R T E D
Unpicking years of ingrained
cultural assumptions about work
can be an uphill struggle. But
Daisley thinks that beating those
January work blues can be as
easy as these initial three steps.
1. Take a lunch break ? switch
off from work for an hour,
write a letter, go for a walk,
do something else. It will make
you more productive in the
afternoon and you won?t dread
your working day so much.
2. Turn off email noti?cations ?
the interruptions from email
noti?cations cause anxiety and
make us feel a pressure that we
aren?t getting anything done.
?Overworking may actually hamper
productivity,? he says. ?The work you
produce is more important than how many
hours you do, but we are working ourselves
into creative stagnation.?
Indeed, the science behind his book shows
that shortening your working week increases
both the quality and quantity of your
output. He cites one investment banking
firm whose employees usually worked a
punishing 56 hour-work week with no day
off. When they switched to a 48-hour work
week with a Sunday break, better (and
more) work was produced. It also helped
employees themselves learn to switch off.
?Working in a high-pressured
environment requires you to develop your
resilience, and over time I have learnt to
deal with specific situations in a more
measured way,? says Katherine, 31, a
corporate lawyer. ?Learning the world
won?t end if something does go wrong
was an important lesson for me.?
Ultimately, you are the boss of yourself.
Discipline yourself into leaving work at a
certain time and not working after that,
switch off your email notifications, take an
actual lunch break away from your desk and
work in ?concentrated bursts? instead. You?ll
be happier and you?ll also get more done.
L OV E YO U R C O L L E AG U E S
?Having genuine friends in the workplace
is really a great solace to me,? says
Katherine, who adds that a supportive
work environment has been the biggest
factor in her enjoyment of her job.
Daisley agrees. He dedicates two-thirds
of his book to engaging with your workplace
in order to increase joy at work for everyone,
with suggestions as simple as laughing
more, having more social tea breaks and
even knowing when to leave people alone.
?In the face of the flexible working
revolution, a lot of extra effort has to be
made to ensure we do still have that sense
of community,? agrees McKee. ?Working
from home is great, but you have to make
sure that when you are in the office you
maximise face time ? embrace personal
relationships with your team and don?t
just hide behind email.?
After all, our team can have a huge
effect on our happiness. ?I?m a really
rational person so it took me a long time
to realise that it was actually interpersonal
stuff at work that was making me feel
upset,? says Isabella, citing a previous
experience of workplace bullying. ?I am
learning that people and culture matter
more to me. I now pick projects based
on teams that inspire me.?
?You can fall in love with your job
again,? Daisley promises. ?You just need
to get some balance back.?

Thinking of a career
switch but too scared
to make the leap?
Take inspiration from
these women who
took the plunge ?
and are happier for
it, says Kate Wills
if you?re going back to work this week
with a feeling of dread, you?re certainly
not alone. According to a survey by
employment website Glassdoor, January
is the most popular month to think about
changing jobs. In fact, a growing number
of women are using their thirties and
forties to change careers completely. ?I see
a lot of clients who have turned 30 ? or 40
? and are using this milestone to reassess
what they want from their working life,?
says careers coach Alice Stapleton.
The reason is that many of us are on
autopilot, conditioned to think: school,
then university, then career for life. But,
Alice says, ?A lot of women have ended
up on a career path that no longer feels
right for them. Some are finding that
their industry doesn?t fulfil them any
more and they want to change direction.
Plus the confidence, knowledge and
experience that comes from getting older
can make them attractive to new employers
? or make starting their own business
more of a reality.?
Given that many of us will still be
working into our seventies, it makes sense
to think of our working lives as a series of
two, three, or even four different careers.
So should 2019 be the year you do a career
pivot? Read on for four women who took
the leap ? and have no regrets?

FROM BANKER TO
FASHION DESIGNER
Joanna Dai, 32, is originally from
California and now lives in London
with her husband Andre
I remember the light-bulb moment when I
came up with the idea for my clothing label
DAI. I was on a flight back to Heathrow
from Stockholm, with the waistband of my
suit digging in and a blazer where my arms
couldn?t go above my head, and I just
thought, ?Why couldn?t there be something
that looked like a power suit, but felt like
my yoga kit?? I took a look at my career
and knew I wanted to create a real product
rather than just crunching numbers at
a computer; I wanted more out of life.
A few months later, I quit my job as
an investment banker and enrolled on
a three-week pattern-cutting course at
the London College of Fashion. I had
numerous sleepless nights wondering if I?d
made the biggest mistake of my life giving
up such a well-paid, secure job that I knew
I was good at. In 2016, I launched DAI
using my life savings and it was such a big
learning curve. I remember my husband
saying, ?Don?t be disappointed if this fails.?
Looking back, I was pretty naive. I had
a tiny budget, so I bootstrapped everything
myself, from the website to the packaging.
The company grew from word of mouth.
I sent clothes to friends and work contacts,
they told their friends and it just caught
on. Even though the business is going well,
I still haven?t paid myself a salary and my
lifestyle is very different. In my old job,
I used to spend � on lunch ? the same
amount now lasts me several days. But
the day-to-day is so fulfilling and diverse,
I wouldn?t change this for the world.
FROM SPORTS AGENT
TO GIN DISTILLER
Philippa Gee, 30, from Leicestershire, now
lives in London with her husband Tom
I studied sports management at university
and had worked my way up to my dream
job as a sports agent. I?d been with the same
agency for eight years, working with top
athletes like Paula Radcliffe and Martina
Hingis. Making gin started out as a hobby.
I made my first batch in November 2017
? I bought a copper pot and started playing
around in my kitchen. I had a few accidents
? flooding my flat and making gins that
were undrinkable ? but when I realised
how much I loved it, I sat exams and
became a licensed gin distiller, which took
about a year. Then I handed in my notice
at work ? I?d just got married and moved
house, and had a real epiphany that it was
time to build something for my future.
I believed there was a gap in the market
for a totally organic gin.
Quitting my job was really emotional
because I loved all the people I worked
with. A lot of friends said, ?How can you
give up a career you love with a good
salary?? but my brothers and sisters ? who
all work for themselves ? insisted, ?Just go
for it, you?ll always regret it if you don?t.?
It?s amazing being my own boss but it
can be stressful and nerve-racking. I get
anxiety thinking about paying the bills and
growing the company, and since work and
life are totally entwined, it can be hard to
find any balance and breathing space.
But it?s been the best feeling seeing
my brand, Fatty?s Organic Gin, served
in my local pub, and getting stocked by big
names like Abel & Cole and Fortnum &
Mason. I wouldn?t have had the confidence
to do this when I was younger. Now I can
see the rest of my life panning out ahead
of me ? and I feel in control of that.

FROM PHYSIO TO
ADVENTURER
Justine Gosling, 33, originally from
Brighton, lives in London with friends
For me, there was no big dramatic
life crisis, I just felt like I was coasting.
I?d been working for the NHS as a
physiotherapist in critical care and
trauma for 10 years. I loved it, but felt
like most weeks were the same ? go
to work, see my friends. There was
nothing that really excited me.
In 2015, I took six months? unpaid
leave to walk the length of Finland and
cycle across Europe. I?d never done
anything like that before, but I just
knew I needed a new challenge to shake
me out of my comfort zone. It gave me
a real appreciation of how simple life
can be and how we overcomplicate it by
striving for material things. I extended
my leave for another six months, then
I quit altogether to volunteer in Haiti
after Hurricane Matthew.
I?m now studying for my MA in global
health and development with the aim of
one day working for an NGO or a
government policy agency, as well as
looking for funding for my next expedition.
Looking back, I don?t think it was as
brave a decision as many people thought.
I knew I could always crash with friends
or family, or get another job. I?m also
lucky enough to own a flat that I rent out,
which gives me some income. Once you
let go of the stability and step into the
unknown, good things happen. In life,
believe me, you don?t always need a plan.
Becoming a lawyer had been my plan ever
since primary school, so I studied law at
university and then got a job in a corporate
law firm. I thought it was going to be my
career for life.
In 2012, I was looking for a way to make
some extra money to pay back my student
loans. I?ve always loved interiors, so I
started refurbishing furniture in my spare
time and selling it on eBay. The first piece
? a dining chair ? sold for � and
it just snowballed from there.
After about six months of selling upcycled
furniture, I added other homewares, like
silk flowers and baskets. I?d be doing my
post office run before work in the morning
and packaging things up at night. I kept
moaning to friends that I wanted to do
it full-time, but it wasn?t until 2016 that
I finally decided to take the plunge.
It was really difficult to give up a career
? especially one I?d spent 10 years and a lot

Mike Lewis, author
of When To Jump: If
The Job You Have Isn?t
The Life You Want,
offers his top tips?
- Make a budget and work out
what you need to survive for
12 months and save it before
you make the jump ? that way
you?ll be able to sustain yourself
for the ?rst year, at least.
- Work part-time in what you
want to jump towards. Find the
of money training for. I felt a lot of guilt
because I knew my family were really
proud of me and had helped me get there
financially. But, within nine months, my
company ? Heavenly Homes and Gardens
? was turning over �0,000.
Sometimes I do have pinch-me
moments, like when I?m on a trip to
Morocco sourcing baskets and think about
my old job, being stuck at a desk doing an
acquisition until 10pm. Getting to shop for
a living is the best thing ever. We?re all going
to be living and working longer and having
several careers in a lifetime, so starting again
in your thirties isn?t actually so scary.
time, even if it?s as little as once a
month, or do work experience and
volunteer during your holidays.
- Create a board of advisors for
yourself. This doesn?t have to be
of?cial, but ?nd six to eight people
successful in the ?eld you?re going
for and ask them to serve as a
personal mentor to you for (at
least) the next 12 months.
- Think of failing. Think of the worst
possible outcome that could come
from making the career switch.
When you?ve done that, imagine
not making the move, and what
your life and work worlds look
like in ?ve, 10, 15 years. Yup.

Not ready for a pivot?
Chris Guillebeau, who?s
talked to hundreds of
people who have set
up a business from their
home, reveals the secret
to on-the-side success
PHOTO: STOCKSY
if you?re not ready to jump into
full-time entrepreneurship, there?s another
way to follow your passion ? while making
some extra money, too. More of us than
ever are turning to ?side hustles?, and I don?t
just mean getting another part-time job.
A proper side hustle is all about creating
a business that has the potential to work
for you, not the other way around.
Two people I know in London have
teamed up to create the Rebel Book Club,
where hundreds of members pay � per
month to participate in a secret meet-up
to discuss what they?ve read over a cocktail
inspired by the nominated book. Someone
else learned to make candles while
watching YouTube and now sells them
online, earning several thousand pounds
a month. Another designs T-shirts and
uses print-on-demand technology so she
never has to stock any inventory.
Each of these people ? and many more
besides ? earns four figures a month from
their project. And none of them expected
to be entrepreneurs. They all followed
a dream or spotted an opportunity to
make some extra cash with the right
product or service.
Last January, I set out to study side
hustlers, promising to share their stories
on a daily podcast, called Side Hustle
School. More than 700 episodes later,
this is what I learned?
1. First and foremost, your hustle must
work for you while you?re doing your
main job. If it also has the potential to
earn you money, then great.
2. Successful hustlers start with the
right idea. That?s not to say you need
to be innovative ? you don?t need to be
the only person in the world pursuing
a particular idea ? you just need to do
it better or differently.
3. Identify your imaginary ideal
customer: who is the one person in the
world who would most benefit from your
product or service? Think long and hard
about their needs and create a shopping
list of what you must do to get this idea
to that ideal customer.
4. Keep your costs as low as possible.
The time to invest in your hustle is after
it?s making money, not before.
5. Finally, launch before you feel ready:
publish the website, post on social media,
tell your friends, go into hustle mode.
There?s no ?perfect time?. What you learn
about what you?ve done so far will
determine what you do next.
A side hustle can bring you extra
money, more confidence and maybe
even a chance to reinvent your life.
So what are you waiting for?

Power
suits?
from the power shoulders and whipped hairdos
of Working Girl to the grey pencil skirts and sensible
shoes of The Office, workwear may have had a lot
of incarnations, but rarely has it resembled
anything we?d want to wear on our own time. In
the last few years, however, things have changed.
Work-life has evolved to include hot-desking,
flexible hours and job shares ? and in all but the
stuffiest offices, the rules on expressing yourself
sartorially have loosened, too.
Maybe you can?t get away with jeans or trainers
where you work, but colour, print and softer
silhouettes have all crept into the corporate look.
Fashion brands have finally tapped into what women
really want to wear for work as well ? and surprise,
surprise, that means clothes that look polished and
stylish, express something of who we are, yet are so
comfy and easy we can forget all about them.
Enter modern suiting, now in a rainbow of
colours and fabrics to suit every workplace. Even
a dressed-up jumpsuit can pass muster in many
offices. ?It smooths and flatters your lines like a
dress, but looks cooler,? says Anna Murphy, fashion
director of The Times and author of How Not To
Wear Black. ?It signals corner-office competency
like a trouser suit but looks ? yep ? cooler.?
Being appropriately smart is important, but so is
being practical. It?s worth giving whatever you buy
a good scrunch in your hand to see how easily it
creases ? because who has time for ironing? ?When
shopping for workwear, think about sustainability,?
advises Clare Hornby, founder of Me+Em. ?It?s not
just about how and where an item was made, but
also its role in your wardrobe, to guarantee it?s a
long-term investment. Can you imagine multiple
uses for it? Can you wear it to work and at the
weekend ? can you dress it up and down??
To help you refresh your 2019 work look, five
experts gave Grazia their recommendations?

ideal for the commute, and you can dress it

WOMB WITH A VIEW
Every week, a woman reflects on
motherhood ? whether she has children or not
?I WAS THE TEENAGER, BUT
MUM WAS ALWAYS THE REBEL?
When your mum?s the one
wearing a studded leather
cap or getting her belly
button pierced, it makes
your teenage years that much
harder, says Alex Holder?
y mum?s Facebook
profile picture is a
full-length shot of
her running out of
the sea in an itsy-bitsy
bikini. It?s a very
different picture from
those of her friends,
who are generally found posing with
grandchildren. Not my mum, though. I
can?t imagine it?s even occurred to her that
67-year-olds generally wear clothes in their
profile pictures ? age and appropriateness
aren?t top of her concerns. She?s always been
far more rebellious than that ? especially
when it comes to that tired assumption
of what a mother, let alone ?a woman of
a certain age?, should look like.
Growing up in a suburb just outside
Liverpool with my sister and two brothers,
where my only goal was to fit in, my mum
was the one at the school gates in a studded
leather cap; or the one topless, perching
on a rock in the Mediterranean. Don?t
get me wrong, she still wore a fleece if
it was cold ? it?s just if there was a sexy
option, she?d choose it.
While I appreciated her introducing me
to high-legged swimsuits in my teenage
years and showing me the power of white
dungarees as a post-holiday uniform, there
were times I found Mum?s disregard for
how other mothers dressed frustrating.
Her standing out was, well, embarrassing.
m
46
I was raised in the ?80s, where the
portrayal of mums was all Princess Diana
maternity dresses and the Oxo woman
ladling gravy for the family. As a result,
I had a very clear image of what a mother
should look like ? dowdy, unfashionable
? and, well, my mum made her best effort
to not look like that.
At times, her choices incited my teenage
rage. When I was 15 and on a family
holiday in Greece, Mum got her belly
button pierced ? I was indignant and
angry; I saw it as her invading my territory.
It looked annoyingly good. Mum?s
response? A shrug of the shoulders
and a ?this really isn?t about you, Alex?.
But a defiance of the ?mum look?
doesn?t mean a defiance of the role ? Mum
lovingly brought up four children and
today is a doting grandma. ?I always wore
what made me feel good,? she tells me now.
?Every woman should wear what makes
her happy and the happiest mums are the
best mums.? It?s true. My mum always made
me feel emotionally supported and her
openness was beneficial when it came
to other areas. She was the one who
accompanied me to the doctors when,
aged 16, I wanted to go on the Pill, for
example ? and I credit my confidence
with my body and myself to her example.
Secretly, though, I think Mum loved the
Alex?s mum on holiday in the ?70s
(above); and now, with Alex (right)
fact that, as I hit my teenage years and she
her sixth decade, my boyfriend?s mates
would describe her as a MILF. ?I can
remember the first time a man turned to
look and realising that he was looking
at your sister and not me,? my mum once
said to us, about what it was like to have
a younger version of herself come along.
It?s not that she was in competition with
my sister and me, but now I?ve got the
benefit of perspective and distance, I think
she just wanted to remain vital. She had
grown up in an era when being attractive
meant a lot, and she wasn?t going to put
away the Lycra just because she?d blown
out the candles on her 50th birthday cake.
Today, my mum says she doesn?t compare
herself with her daughters, but she did
tell me: ?I do love it when iPhoto face
recognition mixes me up with you.?
The real turning point for me in
understanding my mum was becoming one.
I learned that having a baby didn?t void the
rest of my personality. I still wanted to work,
to party ? and I hoped that someone still
found me hot. I found myself looking back
on my teenage behaviour and rolling my
eyes at my indignation that Mum dared to
enjoy her body. Who was I to police what
she did with it just because it didn?t align
with my naive idea of a mother? My son is
now three and I?ll take great pleasure in
embarrassing him, if that means being
myself and wearing what I want.
I had a child 44 years after my mum
first did and I still find myself fighting the
stereotype of what a mother should look
like. Can I dress up for Halloween? Post
bikini photos? Get a tattoo? The answers
are, of course, yes, but society sometimes
makes me question otherwise. So thank you
Mum, for showing me that mums can be
exactly as they please ? and that it doesn?t
affect their ability to parent successfully.

WHY YOU PROBABLY HAVEN?T
FOUND THE ONE - AND THAT?S OK
CATHERINE
G R AY
PHOTOS: DAVID YEO, ALL STAR
Monomania: Exaggerated or obsessive
enthusiasm for ? or preoccupation with
? one thing (c/o The Oxford Dictionary)
Oneomania: Exaggerated or obsessive
enthusiasm with finding The One (c/o my head)
I?m no sociologist, but I?d say that
oneomania is something that is programmed
into us before we can even tie our own
shoe laces, thanks to those fairy-tale ?find
a gown, land a prince? tropes. A wedding
remains a woman?s greatest accomplishment
in society?s eyes, so no surprise that being
a single woman over the age of 30 can feel
like that moment in the film when the
protagonist is sprinting towards a gate
that?s inexorably clunking to a close,
hoping to commando roll underneath it.
Ahhh, it?s so re-lax-ing.
We?re also taught from an early age
that men appreciate in value, while women
depreciate. As a teen, I vividly recall
hearing a 50-something bray, ?Men are
like houses, women are like cars,? and
I believed him (despite his 50-something
wife being much hotter than him).
This upward vs downwards graph of
eligibility burrows into our subconscious.
In my early thirties, I believed that if I
didn?t achieve the golden triad of societal
expectation by 40 (spouse, house, babies!)
then I may as well crawl under a rock
and die. Without The One, what would
my life become? Would I be like Laura
Linney?s character in Love Actually, who
doesn?t end up with insanely hot Karl?
In Hollywood, single endings are
overwhelmingly depicted as sad ones.
Our oneomania creates a tunnel vision
within us that narrows as the years tick-
Sarah and doomed
crush Karl in
Love Actually
tock by. I?ve noticed that my conversations
with other single friends often spin on the
axis of how our husband-hunting is going.
?How?s Sarah?? I?ll ask. ?Oh, she?s still
single, but [insert career coup],? my friend
will say. So many of us want to get married,
even though we don?t know anyone we
want to marry. It?s bizarrely abstract.
The 20-something who didn?t give a
flying fig about whether there was a second
date morphs into a tense 30-something
ONEOMANIA SEEMS
TO ACTUALLY
LOWER OUR
INTELLIGENCE
who feels like they?re playing high-stakes
poker, each date the equivalent of pushing a
life-savings mound of chips into the centre.
Not only is oneomania totally
irrational, new research shows it also
seems to actually lower our intelligence.
Three separate studies took a bunch of
people and gave them a baseline IQ test;
then they told the same people they would
?end up alone? and performed IQ tests
once more. The doom-laden ?alone?
prediction caused ?significant and large
decrements in intelligent thought?.
And yet, we?re chasing an ideal that rarely
exists. The average age that British women
marry is now 35. Given that over half of
25- to 44-year-olds are single, and only
four in 10 marriages stay on the ?forever?
pedestal, at the absolute most, only around
a quarter of us are living with The One.
Having ?The Many? in the shape of a
lifetime of serial monogamies, with big
chunks of singleness in-between, is now
closer to the norm. Singles can feel like
islands in a sea of couples. I know I used
to, but I know better now; we?re actually
a hulking great modern revolution.
Next week Catherine, who is the author
of ?The Unexpected Joy Of Being Single?
(�99, Aster), reflects on why men are
still so threatened by single women

respinning: my giuliva
heritage coat
I bought this Giuliva Heritage coat
because it?s a truly classic and timeless
piece, not least because the checked wool
is a fabric from the men?s archives of a
tailoring atelier in Naples. It is made with
the same craftsmanship used for men?s
suiting and many stages of the creation
process are done by hand. I love the hunter
green colour with the deep wine lines
running through the check. Some of the
items in my wardrobe are trend driven, but
they?re balanced with items like this so I
know I can bring them back every season.
This coat is one of those and goes with
so many things. This season, I?m going
to be pairing it with anything Bordeaux
coloured. I?m thinking a great knit with
wide-legs trousers or a satin dress that will
work perfectly for the early spring.

In 2018, I made it my mission to wear
all the pieces in my wardrobe more
frequently. It started last January, when
I was encouraged to participate in a
three-month no-spending challenge by
two fashion industry friends who, after
some introspection and closet inventory,
decided to skip the winter sales because 1)
they own tons of clothes as a consequence
of working in the industry and they didn?t
see the need to buy more; and 2) a desire
to reduce their fashion carbon footprint.
I entered the challenge because, like
them, I have tons of clothes hanging in my
closet, shamefully many pieces with tags
still on them. I had recently read Eckhart
Tolle?s A New Earth and viewed my
constant shopping as an unsustainable
pursuit of happiness. Participating helped
me to reconcile a lot of the frustrated
feelings that I was experiencing, as well as
encouraging me to consider my personal
role in reducing the magnitude in which
the fashion industry pollutes our earth.
Let?s not forget, our industry is among
the heaviest polluters. It?s partly because
of the difficulties that exist in discarding
or recycling clothes. The majority of
unwanted garments are either re-sold in
secondary markets where they are often
repurposed into blankets and other
textiles, or instead, sit in landfills at
larming volumes. Some statistics are
hocking, suggesting that three out of five
ems end up on landfill within 12 months
f being purchased. So identifying small
ways to reduce our carbon footprint ? like
nly purchasing considered pieces and
making a significant effort to wear all
f our clothes ? is an important start.
For 2019, I will be focusing my
espinning around a C閘ine Resort 2016
lazer. This jacket is one of the best fashion
nvestments I?ve ever made; I have worn it
on-stop. This piece always feels relevant.
artorial perfection, it is beyond versatile
nd can be worn anywhere. For 2019, I?ll

s well as playing with some new ones ?

respinning: my raey velvet suit
I discovered a velvet blazer as a young
woman in a vintage market and it soon
became the item that I wore near
constantly. Years later, I was lucky enough
to discover and buy this beautiful navy
velvet suit from Raey that I have worn
many times and still treasure. I now have
many versions, from Giuliva Heritage,
Blaze Milano, Saint Laurent or others,
but the Raey one still gets worn.
I think getting more wear out of your
clothes is often about recognising your
own style and selecting items that are
timeless and will work all year round for
years to come. Versatility is key. Look for
items that can be worn in different ways.
This year, I?ll be wearing the navy
blazer with blue jeans, a Summa white
T-shirt, Midnight 00 shoes and a Biene
Davis bag for dinner and cocktails. For
daytime, I?ll wear it with a white shirt,
slim checked trousers and white trainer
from Peterson Stoop. For black tie even
I?ll wear it as a full suit with Aquazzura
metallic platforms and earrings from
Anna Khouri, though I also love wearin
a velvet blazer over a show-stopping
dress such as one by The Vampire?s Wife
Another combo I?ll try? Pairing the suit
with a metallic silk camisole top by
Hillier Bartley and embroidered slipper
embellished flats or loafers for an
effortless evening look.

This skirt is such a nostalgic look ba
the ?90s ? so much so that Prada act
relaunched this iconic print last year
this in mind, I decided it would be f
to dig out my original from the ?90s
realised that, when worn with a thin
cashmere roll neck, it?s a timeless loo
that will never go out of style.
I love to play on the ladylike vibe
wear it with more classic investment
like a Mark Cross tan bag, Sophie Bi
Brahe pearl earrings and a Sisley nud
lipstick (my favourite is Beige Jaipur
for 2019, I?ll be pairing with sportsw
a New York Yankees cap and trainer
a vintage sweatshirt from Dukes in S
It?s such a great feeling to own a vint
treasure and always being able to rein
it and give it a new lease of life. My a
when vintage shopping is to not be a
of trying something new ? shapes an
styles you think usually wouldn?t sui
can surprise you. Also, don?t be dete
smaller damages as these are easily re
by the likes of The Restory (the-resto
com), who are amazing at bringing t
vintage pieces back to life.
My Prada skirt is the perfect exam
of reinventing pre-loved fashion into
something new and fresh. In other words:
shopping without a guilty conscience.

respinning: my acne a/w ?18 top
I don?t buy anything unless I know I?ll want
to wear it tomorrow and can think of multiple
ways to style it. Personally, I don?t wear a lot
of print, but I loved the almost decorative,
vintage floral print on this Acne top so
decided to invest in it last year. When you?re
on the road, which I am more often than
not, items must be hardworking and
multi-functional. I?m lucky enough to work
in a creative industry where I can wear what
I like most days, so I expect my wardrobe
to work both on and off-duty. This top is
perfect as it?s the ultimate layering piece
and looks great with denim.
It?s going to be really easy to bring this piece
into 2019. Right now I?m into tailoring, so I?ll
be layering it underneath my Giuliva Heritage
blazer for work. I also love the new wide-leg
slouched denim shape, so I?ll wear it with
these Ganni jeans at the weekend. I always
want to wear new season before it is warm
enough, so layering the Acne top underneath
this printed slip dress from Paco Rabanne?s
new collection is the perfect solution. The
almost William Morris-esque print of the
Acne top marries surprisingly well with the
pattern of the dress; a print clash that feels
refined thanks to the muted colour palette.

respinning: my ctj x pallas suit
This suit from my own collection with
Paris tailoring house Pallas last year is the
perfect boyish fit. As a result, it goes with
me everywhere ? sort of like a uniform
that works for appointments in the day,
but it also comes to life with a red lip
for evening events. Super-flattering and
versatile, I always feel cool.
I like to choose key pieces for my
wardrobe that make me feel confident and
comfortable ? so you can almost forget
about what you?re wearing and focus on
what you?re doing. I really buy very few
clothes, only key pieces that I rotate: such
as the perfect white shirt (Prada) or the
perfect blue jeans (APC). I guess you
could say with time that I have honed
down my wardrobe to my obsessions
and the essentials.
The suit is a classic look, which can be
updated with seasonal trends ? like a new
clutch and some chic heels, or kept simple
with timeless jewellery, natural beauty and
good hair. It?s a not-trying-too-hard style
that doesn?t date. This year, I?ll be wearing
it a lot with sneakers and boyish tees.

I don?t splurge on high fashion as often as I
used to. This is mainly because I no longer
crave ?It pieces? like I did in my twenties ?
in fact, I?m more likely to want something
if the brand isn?t identifiable or if the piece
is one-of-a-kind. (I?ve become a big vintage
buyer on Vestiaire Collective.)
I?ve also finally understood that the
amount you spend on something is not
directly proportionate to the number of
times you will eventually wear it. In fact,
cost (and even quality) has little to do with
how much you end up loving something.
Now, when I do spend an outrageous
amount of money on what you might call
a ?trend buy?, like this power shoulder
cardigan by Attico, I put it into context
before committing: would said cardi save
the day in more than one ?I have nothing
to wear? crises? Well, on a daily basis, this
knit provides a welcome change from
boyish turtlenecks and dressy button
downs, and is the perfect feminine touch
to update a pair of classic 501s. And by
night? It?s a great alternative to the black
blazer and will give evening looks an
unexpected retro twist. Sold.

?i guess i?ve always had a totally different,
off-grid experience,? says the designer
Amy Powney. She?s not talking, as you
might expect, about turning off her iPhone
after 7pm, or going on a yoga retreat once
a year, but instead referring to a genuinely
back-to-basics upbringing.
When she was 10, Amy?s family
decamped from their home to live the
simple life ? in a caravan in a field in
Lancashire. Her dad sunk a well and
installed a domestic wind turbine for
electricity. ?We couldn?t just go and
switch a light on. We didn?t have a car,?
she says. ?Not having very much triggered
me to think about what we do have and
where things come from. We have such
convenient lifestyles, everything comes
nicely packaged with a beautiful bow
on it, whether that?s your food or your
products or whatever, everyone?s forgotten
truly where things come from. We?ve
forgotten to ask those questions.?
Now 34 and the creative director of
Mother of Pearl, the East London-based
label where she started 12 years ago as
an intern, Amy thinks it?s time we d
start asking those, often quite difficu
questions about fashion, too. Where
do my clothes come from? How wer
they made? Who made them? In wh
conditions? ?I find it horrendous tha
for an industry built on aesthetic, we
damage so much along the way,? she sa
The deep-rooted interest in conven
the young Amy had developed transla
into a professional interest in sustainab
Having read Naomi Klein?s 1999 anticonsumerist book, No Logo, she starte
degree at Kingston University determi
to make ethical, organic clothing.
Back then, however, it was a niche
pursuit ? too difficult, too pricey, and
in the era of rampant one-wear culture,
something we willingly turned a blind e
to. As the business grew, though, and Am
was appointed creative director of Moth
of Pearl in 2015, she found it impossible
to reconcile her beliefs with the demand
of running a successful fashion business.
The problem, in short, was the relentless
requirement to produce more and more.
In her busiest year, she remembers creati
700 pieces. It didn?t sit right with her ?
?I thought nobody needs this much from
a small brand? ? so she pulled back to
creating two collections a year.
With the extra time she now had on
her hands, Amy set about developing
No Frills, a sustainable, ethical, traceable
collection. ?I wanted to make a collection
I could stand behind,? she says.
Three years in development, No Frills
launched last year. The timing couldn?t
have been better. Sustainability has
finally found a prominence in fashion;
Lyst reports that there was a 47% increase
in searches including sustainablerelated key words in 2018 and luxury
conglomerates Kering and LVMH have
both made eco-friendly commitments.
?We are finding that sustainability is
more important to our customer than
ever before,? says Lucy Nguyen, Fenwick
women?s buying manager, who has
increased the No Frills buy by 125% for
this season. ?Our consumer is keen to know
the story behind the product; from where
it was made to how it has been produced.?
But while sustainability is undeniably
a buzz word, addressing it meaningfully is
by no means straightforward ?The f hi
system is complex and one that involves
many different environmental and social
impacts across many regions, which
can make it overwhelming for brands to
understand what they should tackle first
or how they can effect positive change,?
says Sarah Needham of London College
of Fashion?s Centre for Sustainable
Fashion. Indeed, the hardest bit of the
process was just getting started. ?Where
do you even begin?? Amy admits.
Amy and her product developer had
to go ?back to school?, feverishly googling
and personally tracing the supply chains
all the way back to source, from the
alpaca farms in Peruvian mountains
to the wool farms of Uruguay and
the cotton fields of Turkey. By forging
personal connections with the farmers,
they were able to ensure No Frills was
completely traceable and transparent.
What sustainability actually means can
be a little wishy-washy, however. For Amy
it had to be a holistic approach. ?I don?t
can use the word ?sustainable?
u?ve attacked every angle,? she says.
w where our clothes come from,
he people have been treated
we know the animals have been

The twist in the tale, however, is Amy
A
has actually found No Frills to be cheaper
to produce. ?There is often the assumption
that more sustainable materials and
processes command a higher price.
However, collections like these are a great
illustration of how transparency and a
focus on key sustainable materials can be
a great starting point to produce beautiful
and sustainable products,? says Sarah from
London College of Fashion?s Centre for
Sustainable Fashion. ?My message to young
designers is that it was cheaper to develop,
which is not something we were expecting,?
says Amy. And it doesn?t stop there. ?We?ve
had more press now than we?ve ever had
because people are excited, we?ve got a
narrative, and our sales have increased.
Surely that?s a success story for anybody.?
Not that her work is done yet. ?I?m a big
thinker and I just want to make massive
change. I want Mother of Pearl to become
a successful business, of course I do, but
I also want to push the message. That?s
my goal,? says Amy, who admits she never
enjoyed doing interviews in the past. ?If I
could change the Government standards
and trading standards and trading laws,
that?s a bigger achievement than me just
making organic clothing. If I can inspire
younger designers to change and inspire
the consumer to ask questions, that?s going
to make a bigger impact than what we?re
doing on our own. It?s not about keeping
this to myself.? motherofpearl.co.uk

1
Buy less
Choose quality over quantity. If you are
going to buy something ? at whatever
price point ? just know that you really
love it; that it ?ts you well and you
feel amazing in it; you know it?s a piece
you?re going to wear over and over.
If you put it on in the changing room
and don?t feel like that, don?t buy it.
2
If it?s really, really cheap, there?s
a reason
If a T-shirt?s �then somebody didn?t
get paid properly and some horrendous
chemicals have been thrown in there.
Up-buying doesn?t guarantee it?s
sustainable but, if something is really
cheap then someone?s paid a cost for it.
3
Choose organic cotton over
conventional cotton
The problem with conventional cotton
is it?s pesticide grown, which destroys
the soil, destroys the environment, and
means the water run-off is completely
contaminated. From a human rights
point of view, the farmers are sold the
pesticides thinking life is going to be
so much better ? and it is for a few
years because their crops ?ourish ? but
then their soils die and they can?t grow
anything. The consumer has power by
how they use their pounds ? buying
organic cotton shows there?s demand
for it. Tencel is also a really good yarn.
4
Don?t buy a one-hit-wonder
polyester garment
Polyester is a massive problem, so if
you are going to buy something made
from it, just know you?re going to wear
it again and again.
5
Reuse. Resell. And buy vintage
If you?ve got a product that you?ve
fallen out of love with, can you swap
it with friends or sell it on? That way,
someone else gets some love out of
it. Buy like this too ? you give pieces
more of a lifespan.

WORDS GR ACE TIMOTHY
SLEEP. WE SHOULD be spending about a
third of our lives doing it ? it?s essential for growth,
development and psychological processing, not to
mention good skin health and all-round wellbeing.
Without it our productivity and creativity are
compromised and, according to a recent Harvard
study, sleep deprivation is costing the UK economy
$50bn (�.5bn) a year. ?We are born to sleep ? it?s
in our biology,? says Nancy Rothstein, director of
Circadian Corporate Sleep Programs in the US. ?But
our environment has changed so much we?ve become
the only animals on the planet to delay sleep, and our
biology hasn?t yet evolved to cope. Sleep should be at
the top of the wellness triangle above nutrition and
exercise, but even with all our scientific advances, sleep
deprivation still affects the quality of life for 45% of
the world?s population. Something has to change.?
Whether it?s down to sleep trackers exacerbating
the stress of troubled sleepers or the proliferation of
smartphones in the bedroom, experts agree we have now
reached peak sleeplessness. Google reports a steadily
increasing interest in ?insomnia? searches since 2004,
with top search terms including ?how to get to sleep?
and ?how to sleep better?. Pinterest, meanwhile, has seen
a 209% rise in searches for sleep tracker bullet journals,
while on Instagram, #sleep totals 23 million posts.
No surprise, then, that the sleep market ? a relatively
new category in the wellness world ? is suddenly 75
????? ??????????? ?????? "What's News" VK.COM/WSNWS
B E AUT Y
booming, with stores like Rested and Myza
entirely dedicated to the latest sleep
solutions, while countless brands gathered
in London for the first UK sleep show ?
Somnex ? in October. ?We?ve tracked our
sleep, we know the risks and now we want
solutions,? says Jeff Mann, founder of
SleepJunkies.com. And this year a wide
range of innovations will launch, from
intuitive sound systems to cuddly robots,
bringing our bedrooms into the 21st
century and, hopefully, helping us get
a better night?s sleep.
WEARABLE TECH
The Oura ring tracker and app (�4) is
already big among sleep experts. It not only
records your sleep patterns ? including
depth and quality ? on your mobile device,
but also offers tips and advice on the
diagnostics it delivers. The plan is to
expand the personalised guidance the
app will offer, but for now it?s a wearable
tracker that doesn?t interfere with your
routine. Likewise, the Philip Stein Sleep
Bracelet (�5) is a favourite accessory, but
instead of just tracking your sleep it uses
natural frequency technology to harness
and channel the frequencies that help you
sleep better. Madonna and Oprah both
have one. But if bracelets aren?t your style,
they?re currently working on embedding
the technology into pillows, too.
ROBOTICS
The idea of taking a sleep robot to bed
may seem a bit creepy, but when the soft,
curved Somnox (�9) is placed in your
INVISIBLE TECH
RUNNING IN THE
BACKGROUND
WILL HELP US
SLEEP SOUNDLY
lap, it?s instantly relaxing. It begins to
breathe deeply, and fits like a spoon against
your body. It does track your sleep, but
rather than stressing you out with the
stats, it uses the information to create a
programme of guided breathing. Based on
the premise that humans subconsciously
mirror behaviour and so will automatically
follow the breath of the robot, it?s designed
to speed up the process of falling asleep
and reduce stress. During deepest sleep,
you?ll slow right down to just six breaths a
minute. There?s also the option of soothing
sounds (you can even record your own),
but, ultimately, it?s the comfort and virtual
affection ? replicating the proven benefits
of sleeping with a partner (without the
snoring) ? that feels so different to other
sleep devices and, actually, not creepy at
all. Even when you?re handed the robot?s
birth certificate and encouraged to name
it. Inventor Julian Jagtenberg ? who
started building cleaning robots in the
Netherlands, but made the switch to help
his insomniac mum ? is now working
towards building a ?sleep ecosystem?,
with a whole family of sleep robots to
bust a variety of sleep issues.
BED TECH
Remember when electric blankets used to
be the pinnacle of bed tech? Now you can
warm and cool your bed, inject some
magnetic therapy to ease any discomfort
and charge it up with electrical waves to
brain-train you into better sleep habits.
Thermoregulating tech has moved on
leaps and bounds from your leaky hot
water bottle. Experts believe that by
controlling the temperature of your bed,
you can vastly improve your quality of
????? ??????????? ?????? "What's News" VK.COM/WSNWS
sleep. Currently only available to pre-order
until it?s fully funded, Moona (�0) is an
intuitive pillow-insert that cools your bed
to the optimum temperature for dropping
off (no more turning it over to find the
fresh spot), and then warms it when it?s
time to wake up. Or, for a head-to-toe
approach, The Freshbed by Van
Doornewaard in the Netherlands (from
�,500) filters the air around your
bed to deliver the perfect humidity and
temperature for deep sleep. A noiseless
unit inside the bed?s base delivers the fresh
air to your body through the mattress, as
well as maintaining the airflow and
temperature, removing 99.9% of allergens
and pollutants from the air around you.
On a more realistic budget, Dagsmejan
has created a collection of pyjamas that
similarly warm and cool the body to
the right temperature (from �).
Magnet therapy is also big news in the
bed world. Velloflex?s magnetic mattress
and pillow toppers (from �) promise
to aid sleep with BIOflex magnets that sit
imperceptibly within the fabric. The idea
is that magnets increase the flow of oxygen
around the body, and so diminish pain,
cramps, tension and stress. Another
technology that?s gathering pace is electrical
waves. Launching this spring, the Zeez Sleep
Pebble (�9) is a slim pad that you place
under your pillow. It uses tiny electrical
signals that match the brainwaves of a good
sleeper, guiding you into a deeper sleep.
SMART BEDS
For the high rollers, the world?s first smart
bed has it all. The HiCan tracks your
sleep patterns, heart rate and body
weight, and provides the temperature,
sounds and scents you need to drift off
quickly and sleep soundly. If you still
can?t sleep, there?s a huge built-in TV.
It?ll set you back �k, but their slightly
lighter structure, the HiBed, is �.
Sometimes, it?s the least likely sounds that
help us drift off. Hence the success of the
Sleep With Me podcast ? rambling tales
delivered in a monotonous tone ? and apps
such as Calm, with guided meditations,
bedtime stories and music. But the winning
sound will vary dramatically from person
to person, so the new sound systems are
adaptable, offering a wider and,
eventually, personalised range of
options. Sonic Tonic, for example,
offers a menu of sounds proven to
help sleep to suit every problem
and preference. From binaural beats
(signals that mirror brainwaves
to encourage relaxation) and
autosuggestion (repetitive
affirmations to train the
subconscious mind) to white noise,
pink noise, lullabies and nature
sounds, this app combines these
ingredients in complex sound
landscapes. Recently launched,
Kokoon?s intelligent, soundcancelling headphones (�9) link
up to an audio library on your phone,
featuring relaxing music, CBT
exercises and white noise. It will also
measure how long it takes you to fall
asleep to give you more of an idea
what works. Keen to keep your phone
out of the bedroom? Somnuva (�9)
is a standalone device engineered
to replicate a healthy sleep
pattern using very specific
frequencies throughout the
night. With four different
modes: Deep Sleep, Easy
Sleep, Fall Asleep and Power
Nap, the algorithm hums to
retrain the brain, creating a
more effective night?s sleep.
THE FUTURE-SCAPE
So what will come next? ?I think we?ll
see more invisible tech that runs in the
background,? says Jeff. ?It requires less of
a behavioural change, which we?ve seen
is often where the solutions fail us.? The
AI industry is sure to contribute, but
we?re also heading back towards the good
old-fashioned nap. And not just at home
but also at work, with companies such as
InHere (recently launched at London?s
co-working space, Uncommon),
Metronaps and Nap + Up creating
designer sleep pods that will soon be
rolling out across Europe.

Why a January
juice diet won?t
cure a December
of excess by
Susannah Taylor
80
Energy Deficiency,? says James,
which will not only make you
hangry as hell (cue screaming/
crying at your partner/kids/dog),
but over time this can cause a
decrease in oestrogen levels,
weakened bones and can mess
with menstruation. It could, James
says, send your body into energy
conservation mode that could
slow down your metabolism and
lead to weight gain. This may
explain why a friend did a juice
fast and ended up a stone heavier
a month later. Instead, here are
some effective January feel-good
food tips from top nutritional
therapist Nicola Moore:
Add in nutritious foods
Nicola believes January should be
about ?adding in nutrition rather
than taking it out?. She asks her
clients to build in more veg and
suggests aiming for five a day, but
at a minimum ?adding broccoli
daily is a very good thing?.
Build a better salad
?A lettuce leaf and tomato on a
plate is not a salad,? says Nicola.
?It?s really important you create
something that inspires you to
eat it.? She suggests a protein base
(chicken, fish, lentils maybe) and
then three different coloured
foods (think beetroot, peppers,
tomatoes) before adding some
crunch with seeds or nuts. Finally,
add your good fats with avocado
and maybe walnut oil, and finish
with a squeeze of lemon juice.
Get your gall bladder going
?Lemons are very good for
stimulating the gall bladder,?
says Nicola, ?and the gall bladder
squirts out bile that helps with fat
digestion.? Her top tip is to ?blend
up whole, unwaxed lemons and
freeze in ice cube trays. Drop one
in hot water in the mornings for
a very effective boost.?
Bath-time inspo
My mantra is ?a bath
a day keeps the doctor
and psychologist at
bay?. Bathe by Suzanne
Duckett (�.99,
Bonnier Books) is
about the immersive
bene?ts of bathing.
Turmeric to go
The brain and body
bene?ts of turmeric

i know, i know? you just want
to feel clean, less bloated and to
be able to do up your jeans again.
But while there are hundreds of
companies out there pushing
cabbage and cayenne soup diets,
juice fasts and party-purging
supplements, a drastic detox could
actually do more harm than good.
The ?detox?, says leading
nutritionist James Collins, whose
book The Energy Plan (�.99,
Vermilion) launches this week,
is a myth we?ve been sold by
?health? companies. ?Our bodies?
physiology is so tightly regulated,?
he explains, ?that we don?t need
to detox from anything.? This
means that after a big night out,
for example, our bodies right
themselves again naturally.
Neither are we designed,
explains James, to ingest 1kg of
carrots daily on a juice fast. ?If we
flood our systems with a specific
vitamin or nutrient, our bodies
will only use what it needs and
the rest will be excreted,? he says.
This means most of your expensive
juice concoctions will end up
down the pan, literally.
Meanwhile, drastically cutting
calories by doing a whacky
elimination diet is a fast track to
a meltdown. ?It causes Relative

How I start my day: ?I would love to say
I meditated ? and I have had patches in
my life where I have ? but I have a lot
on my plate now. My son wakes me up,
we have some breakfast together and
then I go to the gym and head to meetings
afterwards. Every day is different, and I love
that life never feels stagnant, but the older
I get, the more I thrive on routine.?
How I approach my skin: ?I struggle with
my skin, so I tend to switch up my skincare
routine often. I love taking my make-up
off with oil, and have been using the
bareMinerals Oil Obsessed Total Cleansing
Oil, �, followed by bareMinerals
Skinlongevity Vital Power Sleeping Gel
Cream, �, which is incredibly hydrating
and gives a really lovely glow. I?m also a big
fan of Shiseido eye cream.?
My go-to day look: ?I wear make-up every
except in the gym. I often just use lip
nd do a smudgy winged liner with
cara. For evening, I like a little
eyes.?
6.
beauty advice is from: ?My mum.
ays said it?s about using make-up to
nce what you have, rather than hiding
things we don?t like so much. She told
me when I was around 12 years old and it
took me years to understand it.?
The facial I swear by is: ?I?m a total
facial junkie. In the UK, I?ve recently
been going to Sarah Chapman and
have been blown away.?
My favourite multitasker: ?Coconut oil.
Not only can I throw it in my smoothies,
but I can put it in my hair, use it on my
body and take my make-up off with it ?
even really thick eye make-up. It?s a great
one to travel with.?
My handbag heroes: ?I always carry
a lipstick for a quick and easy way
to change up any look. I love the
bareMinerals BarePro Longwear
Lipstick in Cherry, � ? it?s one
of those reds that makes blue eyes
pop, complements all skin tones and
lasts all day.?
One of my favourite make-up-artist
hacks: ?When I did my first film, the
make-up artist took the blusher brush
and, after she had finished doing my
cheeks, she popped it into my eye sockets,
too. It?s like a natural contour for the eye.?
My under-eye trick: ?If my sensitive
eyes flare up, I?ll put spoons in the fridge
for a few hours. Once cooled, I?ll roll
them back and forth over my eyes to
take the puffiness down.?

don?t make us want to spend time there

EDIT YOUR HOME
EDITED BY RACHEL LOOS
Decluttering ? it?s even bigger for 2019,
with a slew of books devoted to the subject.
It?s true that a home not overflowing with
mess feels calmer and more relaxing, but
where do you start? Debora Robertson,
author of Declutter: The Get-Real Guide
To Creating Calm From Chaos, suggests
tackling ?coffee-cup zones? first?
?We all have ?coffee-cup zones? ? hot
spots where rubbish accumulates. They
occur out of a deeply ingrained habit that
becomes unconscious and, worse, invisible.
?Ask yourself: where are your coffee-cup
zones? One might be the basket you placed
on the hall table for the post, which is now
a rat?s nest of takeaway flyers and odd gloves.
Or the chair in the bedroom that?s always
covered in a week?s worth of laundry.
?Wander about your home and list each
coffee-cup zone. Make a plan to tackle them,
writing down exactly when you are going to
do it. Scribbling ?Monday, 8pm, sort out
hell bowl of rubbish on dining table? makes
it a million times more likely you will do it.
?I know what you?re thinking: my hallway
is an obstacle course, it?s been three winters
since I have been able to find my good coat,
I?ve just bought cumin for the 84th time
because I have no idea where the other 83
jars are and the bathroom cupboard has 15
different shampoos ?just in case? ? and this
woman wants me to sort out the letter rack?
?I hear you. But the power of cumulative
small victories is what will help you win this
clutter war. There is never a perfect moment
or place to start, so you might as well start
here and now with an easy win.?

VEGAN FOR GOOD
B Y R I TA S E R A N O
( � 17. 9 9, K Y L E B O O K S )
Each week we feature two delicious
recipes ? one that?s fast and easy for
mid-week, and one that requires a bit
more time and effort. This week, to
mark Veganuary, vegan cook Rita
Serano does a quick, healthy supper
bowl ? and, for a very on-trend dinnerparty dish, a baked cauliflower curry?
METHOD
1 Cook the quinoa
according to the packet
instructions.
2 Make the wasabi peas by putting the
defrosted peas, wasabi paste, salt, vinegar
and the ?esh of half an avocado in the bowl
of a food-processor.
3 Pulse-chop the mixture until all is combined,
but the peas are still crumbly ? the texture
doesn?t have to be completely smooth.
Taste and adjust the seasoning and set aside.
4 Remove the skin from the remaining
avocado and slice the ?esh thinly.
5 Combine and stir the dressing ingredients
in a small bowl and set aside.
6 Divide the quinoa between the two bowls.
Now you are going to group each component
on top of the quinoa: ensure you don?t mix
the ingredients. Put 1-1� tbsp of the wasabi
peas in each bowl. Then arrange the avocado
and cucumber slices, sprouts, salad leaves,
shredded cabbage, nori and onion over the
bowl. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds and
pour the dressing over. Oishii!

METHOD
1 Preheat the
oven to 180癈/Fan 160癈/Gas
Mark 4. Remove the stem and part of the
core of the cauli?ower ? leave enough of
the core to keep the cauli?ower together.
2 Roast the cumin, coriander, fennel and
mustard seeds (if using) in a dry pan over
a low heat until fragrant. Add the garam
masala, curry powder, fresh ginger, onion and
3 tbsp water or stock. Stir-fry over a medium
heat until the onion is soft and translucent.
Add the tomatoes, bring to the boil and leave
to simmer over a low heat for 10 minutes.
3 Place cauli?ower, cored side down, in a deep
ovenproof dish or cast-iron pan and pour over
the sauce. Put the lid on or cover with foil.
Cook for an hour, then uncover and cook for
a further 30 minutes or until the cauli?ower is
cooked (pierce with a sharp knife to test).
4 Meanwhile, make the rice. Roast the
cinnamon, cloves and cardamom in a small
dry pan over a medium heat until fragrant.
Add the rice to a large pan with the bay
leaf, roasted spices and stock or water.
Cook the rice according to the instructions
on the packet. Set aside with the lid on.
5 Pulse-chop the chutney ingredients in a
processor. Serve with the cauli?ower and rice.

PAUL
Sharon and Rob
plummet to a new level
of Catastrophe as the
alternative love story
returns tonight
WHEN THEY titled their brilliant,
enduring love affair Catastrophe, I wonder
quite how catastrophic Sharon Horgan
and Rob Delaney foresaw their coupling.
The show has always walked a shadowy line
between reality and fiction, one of its
strongest suits. Sometimes, watching this
wonderful, human, mismatched, physically
hot, mentally hotter couple riffing off one
another feels like earwigging on private
conversations. Calling the characters ?Rob?
and ?Sharon? never felt accidental.
For season four, an actual catastrophe
has occurred. Rob, a recovering alcoholic
(both in person and the programme), has
crashed his car, wasted. At the deeply
melancholic close of last season, Sharon
found the sexy American guy she once
took a punt on slumped and bloodied over
the wheel of his motor. Four years in, Rob
and Sharon have entered the unusually
fragile realm of the mid-term relationship,
when those without shared responsibilities
decide to sink or swim. Little sharpens that
decision harder than finding your dream
boy a drunk ? and very possibly dead ? liar
resting against a shattered windscreen.
We open in court, at Rob?s trial. There is
a joke to be had, but the underlying musical
score of Catastrophe has transposed from
major to minor key. A routine bout of
community service and enforced recovery
awaits him. She trails him like an FBI
agent, watching his every footstep. Their
Sharon and Rob?s
relationship faces
new challenges in
season four
trust has gone. A random stranger he
meets at AA is hardly going to help.
Inevitably, given the level of catastrophe,
a certain lightness has gone from the show.
As in any relationship, the viewer may feel
tricked into observing the craggier, darker
underside of love after falling headlong for
their rosy bloom. I prefer this Catastrophe,
though. It feels more real.
As the show steers into harder pastures,
it becomes about something wider than all
the usual romcom rigmarole. It touches
and plays with the bruise of an infernal
modern condition: imagining everyone
else living a less complicated, more linear
life than your own. The jealousy of seeing
other couples find solutions, when your
relationship only knows the sour aftertaste
of midlife dilemma. Rob and Sharon are
four years old now. But this is a couple
we?ve loved loving, on- and off-screen. We
can only wish them the hardiest of good
fortunes in the face of what?s to come.
Tonight, 10pm, Channel 4
Her time
Some might see it as a piece of
scheduling misfortune for the
BBC to have brought Pamela
Adlon?s Better Things to the UK
in the midst of so many dramas
around her former close
professional ally, Louis CK. But
Adlon is a robust comedy genius,
writing and starring here as a
failed actress and single mother,
and it?s a fabulous, poignant,
laugh-out-loud turn, which feels
like the hand of fate at last
waving in the right direction.

NEW
RELEASE
THIS WEEK:
Bella Mackie has written
an inspirational love letter to running
? a form of therapy for her anxiety?
Jog On
Bella Mackie
(� 9. 35, W ILLI AM COLLI NS)
The latest in a heartening trend celebrating women
who run because it feels good rather than makes
them look good, Jog On is a timely and empathetic
look at the connections between mental health and
exercise. Bella Mackie took up running because she
was suffering from an anxiety disorder, but this isn?t a
tale of ultra-marathons: it?s an insightful take on what
it?s like to experience ? and confront ? one?s mental
health while celebrating the fact that running can
change your life. Perfect for resetting a glum mindset.

Your whole ?Healthy-ish? issue (7 Jan),
and especially Polly?s column, has been
refreshing ? instead of guilting us all,
agreeing that life is tough and any form of
wellbeing or time to yourself is a reward in
itself. I?m 44, size 18 and comfortable
with that ? not planning a 2019 where I
totally transform myself. In the past, I?ve
made myself countless empty promises: ?by this time next
year? or ?I love these heavily discounted trousers and by summer
they?ll fasten so I can?t miss the deal?, but no more. I?ve edited my
wardrobe and now I can fit into every piece. I?m sure people will
slate my approach as ?lazy?, but I enter 2019 positive and excited.
I?ve started a weekly yoga class and can?t believe its impact on
my mind, body and soul. On Saturday, I?ll do my first park run,
intending to walk and hoping to progress to a light jog over the
year. I feel ready to take on the real challenges of life. Natalie

WE?VE GOT SO MUCH TIME FOR
FIO
Fiona off-duty at the
Isle of Wight Festival
haired feminist punk becoming the host of
Question Time? No, us neither ? which is one
of the many reasons we?re intrigued to see that
from this week Fiona Bruce will be presiding
over the BBC panel show where MPs,
newspaper columnists and the occasional
politically-minded comedian answer topical
questions from members of the audience.
Another reason this is good news: that
Fiona?s the first female presenter in the show?s
40-year history. And while the newsreader?s
public persona might appear somewhat
prim and head girlish, in truth she?s not what
you expect. For a start, her background is
quite different from that of previous host
David Dimbleby. While he comes from a
broadcasting dynasty, Fiona spent her early
years on the Wirral with a father who had,
in her words, ?come from great poverty and
ended up a very successful businessman?.
She has a naughty side, too. ?I can be very
serious, but whenever the opportunity
presents itself, I love letting my hair down,?
she says. ?I used to have a cocktail between
bulletins at The Langham Hotel opposite the
BBC.? The 54-year-old has also been seen at
the Isle of Wight Festival?s ?disco yoga? at 3am.
With Brexit looming, keeping the MPs and
audience in order will require some yogic calm
for sure. A bit of disco wouldn?t go amiss, either!

it, whether that?s your food or your
products or whatever, everyone?s forgotten
truly where things come from. We?ve
forgotten to ask those questions.?
Now 34 and the creative director of
Mother of Pearl, the East London-based
label where she started 12 years ago as
an intern, Amy thinks it?s time we d
start asking those, often quite difficu
questions about fashion, too. Where
do my clothes come from? How wer
they made? Who made them? In wh
conditions? ?I find it horrendous tha

The deep-rooted interest in conven

Having read Naomi Klein?s 1999 anticonsumerist book, No Logo, she starte

to make ethical, organic clothing.
Back then, however, it was a niche
pursuit ? too difficult, too pricey, and
in the era of rampant one-wear culture,
something we willingly turned a blind e
to. As the business grew, though, and Am
was appointed creative director of Moth
of Pearl in 2015, she found it impossible
to reconcile her beliefs with the demand
of running a successful fashion business.
The problem, in short, was the relentless
requirement to produce more and more.
In her busiest year, she remembers creati
700 pieces. It didn?t sit right with her ?
?I thought nobody needs this much from
a small brand? ? so she pulled back to
creating two collections a year.
With the extra time she now had on
her hands, Amy set about developing
No Frills, a sustainable, ethical, traceable
collection. ?I wanted to make a collection
I could stand behind,? she says.
Three years in development, No Frills
launched last year. The timing couldn?t
have been better. Sustainability has
finally found a prominence in fashion;
Lyst reports that there was a 47% increase
in searches including sustainablerelated key words in 2018 and luxury
conglomerates Kering and LVMH have
both made eco-friendly commitments.
?We are finding that sustainability is
more important to our customer than
ever before,? says Lucy Nguyen, Fenwick
women?s buying manager, who has
increased the No Frills buy by 125% for
this season. ?Our consumer is keen to know
the story behind the product; from where
it was made to how it has been produced.?
But while sustainability is undeniably
a buzz word, addressing it meaningfully is
by no means straightforward ?The f hi
system is complex and one that involves
many different environmental and social
impacts across many regions, which
can make it overwhelming for brands to
understand what they should tackle first
or how they can effect positive change,?
says Sarah Needham of London College
of Fashion?s Centre for Sustainable
Fashion. Indeed, the hardest bit of the
process was just getting started. ?Where
do you even begin?? Amy admits.
Amy and her product developer had
to go ?back to school?, feverishly googling
and personally tracing the supply chains
all the way back to source, from the
alpaca farms in Peruvian mountains
to the wool farms of Uruguay and
the cotton fields of Turkey. By forging
personal connections with the farmers,
they were able to ensure No Frills was
completely traceable and transparent.
What sustainability actually means can
be a little wishy-washy, however. For Amy
it had to be a holistic approach. ?I don?t
can use the word ?sustainable?

in her approach to the issue. She?s adamant

The twist in the tale, however, is Amy
A
has actually found No Frills to be cheaper
to produce. ?There is often the assumption
that more sustainable materials and
processes command a higher price.
However, collections like these are a great
illustration of how transparency and a
focus on key sustainable materials can be
a great starting point to produce beautiful
and sustainable products,? says Sarah from
London College of Fashion?s Centre for
Sustainable Fashion. ?My message to young
designers is that it was cheaper to develop,
which is not something we were expecting,?
says Amy. And it doesn?t stop there. ?We?ve
had more press now than we?ve ever had
because people are excited, we?ve got a
narrative, and our sales have increased.
Surely that?s a success story for anybody.?
Not that her work is done yet. ?I?m a big
thinker and I just want to make massive
change. I want Mother of Pearl to become
a successful business, of course I do, but
I also want to push the message. That?s
my goal,? says Amy, who admi
