IN PRAISE OF A TRUE CHAMPION
Andy Murray shed tears last week as he revealed
he plans to retire. The world felt his pain as
possibly the greatest British tennis player ever
broke down, explaining he?s struggling to recover
from hip surgery. It was refreshing to see how far
gender attitudes have advanced ? the dated idea
that ?real men don?t cry? was smashed out of the
court by the sportsman?s display of emotion. At a
time when research shows there?s a crisis in men?s
mental health, a message for men not to bottle
up their feelings couldn?t be more important. It
serves as a reminder that Murray has many strings
to his racket ? he?s also an outspoken feminist ?
making him a true sporting champion.

the likes of me, Ireland?s authorities would
have continued to stealthily outsource
its abortion problem to England? If the
Repeal movement hadn?t risen up on
Instagram, interrupting my, and others?,
wilful ignorance.
In the interest of avoiding another such
moment of ?But? this is so wrong! Why
isn?t someone doing something? Why aren?t
I??:燨y! Northern Ireland! What the fuck?
In the first week of January this year, the
Republic of Ireland finally got access to
abortion services. Which is wonderful.
Except that Northern Ireland has no such
rights, still. Nothing close. I guess it
shouldn?t matter that NI is part of the UK,
unlike the RoI. An injustice is an injustice:
why care more about those visited on
women who share your nationality?
Yet there?s something extra rich about
Northern Ireland being left behind by both
the UK, and its sister in history and land
mass. Quite as rich are new guidelines on
home use of the abortion pill, just-released
by the UK?s Department of Health. These
allow all women to take the second dose of
the medical abortion pill at home ? unless
they?ve travelled from Northern Ireland
for it. Because, by definition, NI women
aren?t in their own home. How could they
be? Abortion is illegal there.
We can?t have this, can we? This medical
and moral isolation of Northern Irish
women? This belittling, this betrayal?
Can?t chose to ?forget?. To let it slide.
Can?t cue ourselves up for another
Embarrassing Awakening to ignorance.
Of course we bloody can?t.
Three years ago,
FOLLOWING an
Embarrassing
Awakening to the
UPS
full extent of my own ignorance, I got
involved with the campaign to win
abortion rights for the women of the
Republic of Ireland. Until my EA, I?d kind
of known that abortion wasn?t legal in
Ireland, but then, I?d forgotten, because
who?s got time to worry about anything
that doesn?t directly impact them? Then I?d
re-remembered, but decided it wasn?t really
my issue, because I?m not Irish, so probably
didn?t fully get it. Then I?d forgotten again.
This attitude was fabulous for many
Irish politicians: it being shared by all
sorts of people who, like me, didn?t bother
recognising or addressing an epic, cruel
injustice. An injustice that forced the
women of Ireland to either travel to
England to end unwanted pregnancies
or risk themselves physically, and with
prison sentences, by acquiring abortion
drugs illegally online, or to continue with
pregnancies they didn?t want, that were
perhaps a result of rape or incest, or which
were planned and wanted but could never
sustain. Unbothered by attention from

DAVID &
VICTORIA?S
?STRONGER
TOGETHER?
PACT
????? ??????????? ?????? "What's News" VK.COM/WSNWS
AFTER A YEAR in which the state of
their marriage was ripped to shreds by
social media and tabloid speculation,
Victoria and David Beckham have made
sure that 2019 has begun with a power
statement of ?absolute togetherness?.
The year, which marks 20 years of Brand
Beckham (they married on 4 July 1999),
began with a lavish �,000 New Year?s
Eve party at their multimillion-pound
Cotswolds home, with the couple uploading
their midnight kiss to their combined
80 million-plus followers on Instagram.
In marked contrast to reports last year
that their marriage was ?hanging by a
thread?, cute scenes of the Beckham family
partying, dancing and making merry with
friends including Liv Tyler, Dave Gardner
as well as David?s mum Sandra and sister
Joanne, were filmed for social media,
putting out a clear message that all is
well within the Beckhams? private world.
A week later, the pair turned up handin-hand (along with Brooklyn and his
girlfriend Hana Cross) to the London
Fashion Week Men?s presentation of
David?s fashion line Kent & Curwen,
where he kissed his wife ? in front of
delighted photographers ? as they
giggled together at their table.
The following day the football legend
? again with Victoria in tow ? gave a
shout out to his wife during his speech
at a LFWM party, before celebrating with
friends Gordon and Tana Ramsay (who
is pregnant with their fifth child).
Last year, rumours hit the internet that
a Beckham split was imminent, with critics
pointing to the fact that David had pulled
out of financing Victoria?s fashion line, put
the Cotswolds house in his name and was
planning to spend most of his time in
Miami, where his football team is based.
And when David allegedly refused to
appear on the British Vogue cover featuring
Victoria and their children, the former
Spice Girl tried to damp down speculation
by claiming, ?We are stronger together.?
A source said, ?2018 was a terrible year
for Victoria. Behind closed doors, she?s
believed to have been calling it her ?annus
horribilis?. She was really hurt by all the
rumours and speculation, which affect
the whole family. Her resolution this year
is to put her ?stronger together? words into
practice. She and David have had a lot of
talks over Christmas. They are both busy,
focused on their individual projects and
businesses, but they ring-fenced Christmas
for family. They went to the Cotswolds ?
David?s favourite place ? where they had
time to decide what they wanted to do.
Top of Victoria?s agenda was backing up
her ?stronger together? message, which is
what she has done since the year began.?
The source continued, ?This year marks
20 years together ? something she and
David are really proud of. Both of them
realise they do have to make an effort to
show that they are very much together.
Victoria is incredibly savvy. She knows the
power of images, of social media and it is
no coincidence all this is happening at the
beginning of the year. 2019 is the year of
the Spice Girl reunion, but for her it?s the
year of a real Beckham union. That?s where
her energy is focused. She?s looking and
feeling happier. They really got a chance to
sort things out over Christmas. When they
were with the Ramsays they were even
joking about having baby number five to
keep up. Who knows if they were serious.?

on the world stage? Not boys? club suiting,
armour-like shoulder pads or crowd-pleasing
neutrals for Nancy Pelosi. Rather, on
being sworn in as speaker of the House of
Representatives two weeks ago, she opted
for a shift dress in a gutsy shade of fuchsia
(see below), an exclamation point of intent
within a sea of navy and blue suits. Because,
as Nancy knows, the pink dress is your
wardrobe?s ultimate power move.
Hollywood has clearly got the memo.
The style star of the Golden Globes afterparties was actress Rowan Blanchard. The
17-year-old was sassy, rather than sweet,
in her Marc Jacobs dress ? a fantasy of
extravagant candyfloss ruffles. And at the
London premiere of Glass last week, Sarah
Paulson ? never one to play it safe ? opted for
a firecracker of a dress: custom-made Prada in
electric pink with flames snaking up the skirt.
But why now? ?In my mind, pink has
always been right,? says designer Emilia
Wickstead. ?We underestimate how powerful
pink can be ? it?s feminine and strong at
the same time.? It?s this duality that gives the
current crop of pink frocks their bite. Pink
is indelibly associated with gender politics,
but as designer Henry Holland points out:
?We?re living in a time when women are
reclaiming the power of their femininity
on their own terms. And pieces as explicit
as the pink dress, which were perhaps once
considered the epitome of feminine and
saccharine sweetness, are being reinterpreted
in a way that fits with this new mood.?
Rather than rejecting femininity, the pink
dress boldly represents the all-in owning of it. In
their jolting shades or unapologetic proportions,
these dresses are a rallying cry to remember
that power and strength are as feminine as
romance and elegance. Underestimate
the women in pink at your peril.
So how to wear it? ?I love any
shade of pink paired with black,?
says Emilia, while Natalie
Kingham, Matchesfashion.
com?s fashion buying director,
says, ?Pink lifts any skin tone,
so I?ll often wear it if I?m feeling
tired. I?ve never been scared of
being bold with bright tones.? She?s
right that confidence is a non-negotiable.
And Natalie also cites another advantage;
one that makes the joyous tone particularly
potent right now: ?Pink is a mood enhancer,?
she says. After all, couldn?t life do with a
little rose-tinting?

?We need to
remember where
violent language
can lead?
Following verbal
attacks on politician
Anna Soubry, Kim
Leadbeater, sister of the
murdered MP Jo Cox,
tells Anna Silverman
why she fears even
more violent rhetoric
around Brexit
16
ANOTHER WEEK EDGING us closer
to 29 March, when the UK will leave the
EU ? another wave of abuse directed at
women in the public eye.
Last week, Conservative MP Anna
Soubry ? a prominent Remainer ?
faced chants of ?Soubry is a Nazi? from
Brexit protesters in yellow vests outside
Parliament. In an interview with The
Times, she admitted she no longer
stands at the edge of the platform on
the Tube because she worries somebody
will push her on to the track.
The atmosphere of intimidation in
Westminster has become so bad that she
also admitted she uses a side entrance
into the House of Commons, constantly
????? ??????????? ?????? "What's News" VK.COM/WSNWS

looks over her shoulder, and wears shoes
she can run in. ?These are my Brexit
bovver boots,? she said.
She?s not the only one. Sky News
journalist Kay Burley has said she has
security to escort her around Westminster
after thugs pelted her with sexist abuse
and threats of violence; and BBC political
editor Laura Kuenssberg is accompanied
by security at party conferences.
The trend echoes the nastiness that
dominated politics around the time of the
Brexit referendum campaign in June 2016:
violent threats snowballed and resulted in
the murder of Labour MP Jo Cox.
Far-right terrorist Thomas Mair
repeatedly shot and stabbed Jo as she was
on her way to meet constituents in West
Yorkshire, shouting, ?This is for Britain?
and ?Keep Britain independent?. Her sister,
Kim Leadbeater, says what?s happening at
the moment feels horribly familiar.
?People dismiss this stuff as ?just being
words?, but actually, we end up on a
slippery slope and, as we know to our
cost, it only takes one individual,? she says.
In the weeks following Jo?s murder,
Kim says there was a sense that things
would change. ?People said all the right
SOMETHING HAS
GONE WRONG
WITH THE WAY
WE CONDUCT
OUR DEMOCRACY
things ? understanding we have to treat
each other in a civil manner ? and there
was a short period of time where things
did change. But right now, it?s potentially
worse than ever.?
Now, police stand outside Parliament
as thugs hound politicians and journalists
with misogynistic and threatening chants.
Burley said last week, ?Unless something
happens this will escalate into violence.?
Soubry says she?s received so many death
threats she can?t keep track any more.
The MP adds, ?There does seem to be
a strong flavour that this is anti-woman
and anyone who is not white.?
Kim worries the abuse will deter women
from entering politics, or silence those
already in the public eye. ?We don?t want
the threat of violence to stop people doing
their jobs. The last thing Jo would have
wanted is a culture of fear stopping people
speaking freely. If Jo was here today, she?d
show a huge amount of solidarity with
anyone being abused. I imagine she?d say,
?Don?t let this intimidation sway you from
the path you?ve chosen; don?t let this scare
you into not staying true to your beliefs.??
Kim recalls the abuse Jo received on
social media six weeks before she was
killed. ?We?d gone away for my 40th
birthday and we had a really frank
conversation about it. Jo said, ?I need to
become more thick-skinned.? She was such
a kind, caring, considerate person. The fact
she felt she had to become some tough iron
woman is really sad. You should be able to
carry on being who you are ? that was
what made her so good at what she did.?
She often thinks back to their happy
childhood together, growing up as not
only sisters, but also best friends and going
on family holidays ? and then to what
a brilliant mother Jo went on to be.
Now, she can?t bear the thought of Jo?s
two children growing up in a world where
aggressive and confrontational language
and behaviour is deemed acceptable.
?Something has gone wrong with the
way we conduct our democracy for us
to get to this point,? she says.
?People are clearly angry and we need
to look at where that anger has come
from,? Kim continues. ?The vast majority
of people are probably just expressing their
anger and frustration at the Brexit process,
which I agree has been very frustrating.
But it only takes one person to use the
current climate as an opportunity to
unleash their own dark views.?

THE DUST HAD barely settled on the
news that Meghan Markle?s half-sister
Samantha had been placed on a police
watch list of ?fixated? people when her
father gave yet another explosive interview.
Last week, Thomas, 74, expressed his
exacerbation at his daughter?s rejection since
the royal wedding in May (again), saying,
?I?ve been a good father, I?ve done nothing
wrong. Axe murderers kill 19 people and
their daughters still come and visit them
in prison. It?s just incomprehensible for
Meghan to treat me this way. It?s a dream
that has turned into a nightmare. The
royals and Meghan can help end this
nightmare by simply giving me a call.?
But despite his calls for contact, Meghan
and her husband continued their policy
of silence, brushing off the headlines as
Meghan made her first public engagement
this year at Smart Works ? as their newly
appointed patron ? in London, before
beginning this week with a trip to
Merseyside with Prince Harry.
As well as Smart Works, which helps
women who have been homeless or in prison
with interview clothes and training, Meghan
has been named patron of three other
organisations: the National Theatre, the
Association of Commonwealth Universities
? both patronages handed down from the
Queen ? and animal rescue charity Mayhew.
What Thomas plans to do next,
however, may be more difficult to ignore.
Grazia understands the former lighting
director is intending to come to the UK
in an attempt to force Meghan into a
meeting. It follows Samantha?s ill-fated
trip to Kensington Palace in October,
where she demanded to see Meghan,
but was turned away by security (the
uncomfortable episode is said to be the
reason she was placed on Scotland Yard?s
watch list of individuals who pose a risk to
Meghan and the royal family?s reputation).
?Thomas is in a desperate, despairing
state right now and he?ll do virtually
anything to get Meghan?s attention,? said
a source. ?Since nothing else is working,
the word is that he?s ready to fly to England
to attempt a face-to-face talk.?
The intervention will involve ?arriving
wherever Meghan is, either fronting her up
at an event or turning up on her doorstep.
If the police are called in, so be it. It?ll be a
calculated gamble as far as he?s concerned,
but he believes it?s well worth making.?
Thomas is said to be working on the
plan with Samantha, who has been
estranged from Meghan for 10 years and
who is writing a disparaging book, In The
Shadows Of The Duchess, about her. The
source added, ?Taking a trip to the UK has
been high on their agenda for a long time,
and now it looks as though Thomas is
ready to pull the trigger. In many ways,
he?s still in a state of shock about his own
estrangement from Meghan and can?t wrap
his head around how it all happened.?
Thomas?s behaviour is in stark contrast
to Meghan?s mother, Doria Ragland, 62,
Thomas
Markle?s
next move
? a trip to
the UK
who has maintained a dignified silence
ever since she was praised for her discreet
appearance at Harry and Meghan?s
wedding. Despite being invited to spend
Christmas with the royals at Sandringham
(a rare move from the Queen and said to
be proof of her approval of Meghan), she
?politely declined? in order to ?give Meghan
space? and avoid aggravating Thomas
further. Doria, however, is expected to
become much more present once Meghan
and Harry?s baby is born, in spring.
Last week, it was reported that Meghan
was finding dealing with negative headlines
while pregnant ?incredibly stressful?, while
Harry was said to be ?very frustrated? by the
public backlash. And, despite her public
composure, it seems active steps are being
taken to control her difficult family members
behind the scenes. Samantha being placed
on the police watch list, for example, was
thought to have come from a request from
Meghan?s side. There will be speculation that
further outbursts from Thomas could lead
to similarly drastic action being taken.
?At this point, Thomas feels he has
nothing to lose,? added the source. ?He?s not
intimidated or scared about confronting
the royals in their own backyard. He wants
Meghan to know that he isn?t going away,
and this isn?t something he?s prepared to
drop. He?s frustrated and angry, and he
believes in fighting back.?

INSIDE TAYLOR
AND JOE?S
SECRET NIGHT
AT THE GLOBES
to present an award at the Golden Globes
? on the night her actor boyfriend Joe
Alwyn was due to attend with the cast of
The Favourite ? many assumed the pair
would finally make their red-carpet debut
together, after almost two years of dating.
Not so. According to eyewitnesses at last
week?s LA ceremony, the couple arrived
separately, with the singer using a side
entrance. Once inside, they are said to
have largely remained apart, with Joe, 27,
choosing to sit with his Favourite co-stars.
Later, at an after-party hosted by Fox, the
couple took things even further. As one
source told Grazia, ?People were getting
kicked out for trying to take pictures of
Taylor and Joe, including where the couple
just happened to be in the background.
They had their phones taken off them by
Taylor?s security and were asked to delete
the photos. Inevitably, some pictures slipped
through the net, but Taylor was flanked by
security all night to limit the chances.?
So why the secrecy? According to another
source, ?This is coming from Joe?s side rather
than Taylor?s.? Having secured roles in Boy
Erased and Mary Queen Of Scots, as well as
The Favourite, his career is on the cusp of
taking off (one magazine last year hailed him
as ?Hollywood?s next great leading man?). ?Joe
feels he has more to lose. He doesn?t want
his relationship to overshadow his career as
he?s yet to make his mark. His agents are
encouraging him to keep it low-key.?
And judging by Taylor?s previous very
high-profile relationships, that may be
a good move. Her romance with Tom
Hiddleston took an embarrassing turn
when, in the space of only three months,
they were pictured on a private jet to Rome,
strolling on a beach in Suffolk with Tom?s
mum, going on a ?holidate? to Australia and

and The Favourite
celebrating 4 July with Taylor?s squad, when
Tom wore that ?I n TS? T-shirt. It ended
amid reports she?d started to question his
intentions and multiple accusations that
the whole thing was a showmance.
?Joe is a very private person,? said another
source. ?Until recently, his Instagram profile
was closed ? he only opened it to promote
The Favourite. He has no interest in letting his
relationship become a spectacle or eclipsing
his career just as he?s doing so well. They?re
happiest hanging out away from the cameras,
with his friends or family in North London,
and they?re determined to keep it that way.
Neither wants to become a big celebrity duo
and risk ruining what they?ve built.?

Following last
week?s landmark
plan for the NHS,
Health Secretary
Matt Hancock tells
Victoria Spratt about
tackling our mental
health crisis and his
experiences on the
maternity ward
THE
STIGMA
AROUND
WOMEN?S
HEALTH
MUST END
PHOTOS: GETTY, SHUTTERSTOCK
MATT HANCOCK, Secretary of State
for Health and Social Care, greets Grazia
straight from his standing desk ? which is
appropriate, since we?re here to talk about
his newly announced 10-year plan for the
NHS, which focuses on prevention and
a �bn cash injection for health services.
He tells us he?s doing RED January, an
initiative encouraging better mental health
by doing something active every day. ?I
went running yesterday, the day before
I did some press-ups ? and one of my
advisors took me boxing, which was great!?
Labour has criticised Hancock?s 10-year
plan, saying the NHS is understaffed (a
problem Hancock himself has said needs
to be solved) but, on the whole, it?s gone
down well because, frankly, there?s a lot
of good stuff in it ? particularly when it
comes to maternity provisions, such as
an increase in talking therapies for new
mothers, as well as the 10% of new fathers
who experience mental health difficulties.
?Giving birth should be one of the most
wonderful days of your life,? says Hancock,
who is 40 and has two sons and a daughter,
all under 13. ?But we all know that is often
not the case. Depression immediately
after birth is well-documented, but
it needs to be much more part of the
standard support that the NHS gives to
mothers. PTSD can manifest itself several
years later. We?ve got to make sure that
we recognise it and treat it appropriately.?
Hancock vividly remembers each of his
children?s births. ?The experiences were
very different? one of them was very
difficult.? He pauses, suddenly looking
emotional. ?I really do understand what
it feels like when things don?t go right,
and I understand the pressures that are
6
put on families and how difficult it can be.?
Mental health more generally is another
key focus of the plan, including �3bn for
talking therapies over the next five years and
the roll-out of ?round-the-clock mental
health crisis care? through the NHS 111
service. ?I?ve been very lucky in having good
mental health, but among family and friends
I know people [who have suffered]. It?s
something I care deeply about getting right.?
It?s not an exaggeration to say that
Britain is currently facing a mental health
crisis, especially among young people.
Why does he think our mental health
is plummeting? ?The pressures are more
acute. This is one of the hardest times to
be growing up. It?s a very hard time to be
a parent, too, because of the amount of
pressures that impact on young people.?
He feels that social media is part of the
problem. ?Everybody goes through a period
of becoming comfortable with themselves;
that?s part of growing up. It was hard in the
old world of simple communications, but
in this new world it?s harder still. One of
Top: Theresa May
visiting staff at
Institute in the
Park, Liverpool,
last week. Right:
Health Secretary
Matt Hancock
the things that strikes me is that self-harm
is rising among teenage girls and young
women. Thankfully, suicide rates among
men are falling overall, but they are rising
among women under the age of 25.?
Given the pressures on young women,
does he worry about his daughter? ?Yes, I do,?
he says emphatically. He worries that girls
are ?too often in despair looking at pictures
they see online and thinking, ?Why don?t I
look like that?!?,? even though ?many of these
pictures are staged ? it?s not just somebody
on a normal day in their normal setting.?
Are any of his kids on social media yet?
?No. My daughter is the eldest, she?s 12.
Social media companies say their products
shouldn?t be used by under-13s and it
infuriates me that they make it very easy
for under-13s to use them and don?t do
anything to stop them, leaving it all down
to parents. I?ve asked the Chief Medical
Officer to bring in a set of advice, like you
have with other things we don?t want to
stop people doing, but that do need to
be used sensibly, like drinking alcohol.?
Indeed, while David Cameron once
awkwardly side-stepped having to say
the word ?tampon?, Hancock appears very
comfortable discussing women?s health
as a whole. ?Ending the stigma of talking
about women?s health issues ? for instance,
vaginal mesh surgery ? is incredibly
important,? he says. A male politician
who doesn?t shy away from using the
word vagina; that?s progress indeed.

7 MEET THE
SUB-ROYAL
SET
WHEN PHOTOGRAPHS of Kate
Middleton?s younger brother, James,
emerged last week, jogging in the
Caribbean with his new girlfriend,
Alizee Thevenet, and extended family
Spencer Matthews and Vogue Williams,
they identified a brand-new celebrity
tribe ? the ?sub-royals?.
Pippa Middleton, 35, is the key player in
this set, and the person who has united the
two worlds of royals and reality TV by her
marriage to James Matthews, 43. Formerly
a professional racing driver, James is now
a hedge fund manager whose wealth is
estimated to be �n (nearly three times
more than the Queen is worth). He?s the
elder brother of former Made In Chelsea
star Spencer Matthews, 30, who, along
with his model wife Vogue Williams, 33,
joined the Middletons on holiday at the
Matthews? uber-exclusive Eden Rock
resort in St Barts. Unlike the royals?
favourite Caribbean retreat, Mustique,

Theodore. Right: a beach PDA
from Alizee and James
where paparazzi are banned, St Barts
provides the perfect photo op for the
sub-royal set to get snapped jogging
and kissing (thus helping to publicise
the family business).
The beauty of being in this clan is you
can enjoy all the wealth and trappings
of being associated with the royals ? but
without the responsibilities of the tours,
ribbon cuttings or the small matter of
leading the country one day.
Indeed, last week, while the Duke and
Duchess of Cambridge were pictured
attending church with the Queen, the rest
of Kate?s family were pictured with the
Matthews relaxing on the beach in St
Barts, including, of course, the ever-present
matriarch of the sub-royals ? the Kris
Jenner of the clan ? Carole Middleton, 63.
Last month, Carole gave a rare interview
in which she revealed she ?hoped to have
a lovely daughter-in-law?, so no doubt all
pressure was on marshmallow company
owner and sub-royal James, 31, to pop the
question to his French girlfriend Alizee, 29.
?There is one main rule when it comes to
the sub-royals: absolute discretion,? a source
told Grazia. ?You never discuss the royal
family in public and rarely in private.
Carole?s interview with a broadsheet will
have been approved by William and Kate.
The only thing she said about William
was that she had two ?lovely? sons-in-law.
?While Pippa and Carole are in regular
contact with the Cambridges ? Kate
has been brilliant at advising Pippa on
motherhood and Pippa pops over to the
palace to visit with Arthur ? they rarely
discuss them with other sub-royals. Their
contact with the Cambridges tends to be
limited to family gatherings.?
The source added, ?The Palace don?t
mind the sub-royals being photographed ?
within reason, of course ? as long as there
are no royals in the pictures. If William
and Kate had been in St Barts there might
not have been so many public displays of
affection between James and his girlfriend.?
Pippa and Spencer get on well, which is
key to the sub-royals? dynamic. ?Spencer is
a changed man since getting married and
becoming a father,? a friend told Grazia.
?He?s always been close to James, but not
so much Pippa, who used to rib him about
his wild reality-TV ways. Now they tease
him about how Vogue has managed to
tame him. He has been sober for over six
months now, which is great, because Pippa,
like her sister, rarely drinks. They are all
obsessed with working out and fitness
and it?s really brought them together.?
Pippa and Vogue have also bonded over
being new mums. Last week, Spencer and
Vogue debuted their new reality TV Show
on E4, Spencer, Vogue And Baby Too. ?It is
extraordinary to think that royalty and
reality TV are now so connected,? added
the source, ?but that?s the time we?re living
in, especially as an American TV star is
now a member of the royal family. Spencer
has been close to Harry for years and they
all used to go out. But his new association
with the royal family, now Pippa is his
sister-in-law, no doubt helped him land
his own spin-off.? What are the chances
of Harry, Meghan And Baby Too?

The internet is abuzz
about tidying superstar
Marie Kondo?s Netflix
show on decluttering. So,
what does our fascination
with orderliness say about
us, asks Hattie Crisell?
ONE MORNING last week, I woke up
and abandoned a work deadline in order
to do something that suddenly felt more
urgent: heap every piece of clothing I own
on to my bed, thank them all for their
service and start a major wardrobe clearout. It was, of course, Marie Kondo?s fault.
Late the previous night, I had idly clicked
on episode one of her new Netflix show,
Tidying Up With Marie Kondo.
Though it was released quietly on
1 January, it has subsequently become one
of the most buzzed-about TV shows of the
month, sparking thousands of tweets and
headlines (including ?Marie Kondo versus
book hoarders is now a meme? and ?What
is KonMari and why are people folding
their shirts weird??). Within minutes
of pressing play, I?d succumbed to the
spell: I was so desperate to organise my
shambolic flat that I could barely sleep.
Just what is it about Kondo, author of
the insanely successful The Life-Changing
Magic Of Tidying Up (first translated from
Japanese to English in 2014, and now
published in more than 30 countries
with 10 million sales)? For me, the
self-help guru has proved motivational
after years spent living among Jenga
piles of books, a ?chairdrobe?, and an
ever-progressing tide of shoes. Search
#tidyingupwithmariekondo on Instagram
and you?ll find a whole community
evangelising about her persuasiveness,
alongside photo after photo of
immaculately organised drawers, the
clothes stacked horizontally in the Kondo
style. ?Watches Marie Kondo once??
begins the caption on many of them.
Partly, her fervent following is down
to her manner; serene and delightfully
positive, she?s like the real-life incarnation
of a good fairy. There are few adults in the
world who can make an adorable ?ching!?
sound (which she uses to illustrate her
slogan of ?spark joy?) and still be taken
seriously, but Kondo is one of them.
?She?s a very good communicator,? says
clinical psychologist Linda Blair. ?She?s
likeable and soothing. But, most of all,
she?s completely certain ? and when
you?re completely certain that what you?re
conveying is true, people fall all over you.
There?s something magic about it.?
It?s true: though Kondo has a humble,
polite manner, she also has unwavering
confidence that her method works and
will improve our lives ? and we absolutely
believe her. ?I made it five minutes into the
first episode before I was on Argos ordering
a miniature filing cabinet with suspension
files,? confesses writer Lucy Pavia. ?I then
spent a very satisfying hour this weekend
sorting every paper in the house with the
show on in the background.?
However, our new passion for organising
our homes is part of a bigger picture.
Netflix?s award-winning Minimalism: A
Documentary About The Important Things
is also worth a watch, making a convincing
case that less stuff equals more happiness.
Then there?s the success of the Instagram
cleaning brigade ? in particular, Mrs Hinch,
with 1.5m followers, whose feed is full of
tips on bulk-buying your bleach, efficiently
mopping your floors and sorting your
cleaning products into different baskets
(weekly, daily and ad hoc, apparently ? your
guess is as good as mine). If we?re honest,

1. Commit
Tidying up once and for all this year
may seem like a daunting task, but
believe in yourself. Try setting monthly
goals ? for example, tackling clothing
in January, books in February, and so
on. Intentionally setting aside time to
tidy and giving yourself deadlines are
keys to success.
2. Imagine your ideal lifestyle
Think about what kind of house you
want to live in and what your life would
be like. When you imagine your ideal
lifestyle, you are clarifying why you want
to tidy and identifying the kind of life you
want to live once you have ?nished.
many of us want our homes to look as good
as those we see on social media, and that
means maintaining some kind of order.
Kondo?s message that we must express
gratitude for our belongings ? thanking
every item before we dispose of it ? also
plays into a very 2019 mindfulness about
how we live. When I had a letter last year
from my local Cancer Research UK shop
telling me how much money they had
made from selling my unwanted clothes,
I became even more determined to shed
as much as I can; we?re all increasingly
tuned into the idea that paring back makes
for a happier and also more ethical life.
An awareness of environmental problems
is definitely at play, agrees Blair. But
politically, it goes beyond that. ?The other
major factor is the current atmosphere of so
much uncertainty in the stock markets. And
when you can control your space ? plan
a change, make that change and it looks
exactly as you planned ? you feel in control.?
Studies have found that organisation is
linked to happiness, she adds, and it?s true
that the spring in my step after KonMariing my wardrobe has lasted all week. If we
can achieve that sense of achievement
while also making an adorable ?ching!?
sound ? what could be better than that?
3. Tidy by category, not by location
One of the most common mistakes
people make is to tidy room by room.
This approach doesn?t work because
people think they have tidied up ? but
they have only shuf?ed items around the
house, making it impossible to get an
accurate grasp of the volume of things
they actually own. Instead, tidy up all
things in the same category in one go.
4. Follow the right order
Start with clothes, then books, papers,
?komono? (miscellany), and sentimental
items. This order is designed speci?cally
to help you practise distinguishing
what sparks joy. Clothes are ideal for
practising this skill, while photos and
other sentimental items are more
dif?cult and should not be attempted
until you have honed your sense of joy.

WORDS TOBI OREDEIN
JERHONDA PACE is
painfully nervous as she relives
a conversation she had with
singer R Kelly moments after
they performed oral sex on
each other. On finding out her age ? 16
? she describes how he responded, ?What
is that supposed to mean? Tell everyone
you?re 19 and act 21.?
She is one of several women who
have come forward to detail sexual and
domestic abuse they say they suffered at the
hands of the I Believe I Can Fly singer in a
new six-part docu-series, Surviving R Kelly,
which hit US screens last week. (The first
episode saw 1.9 million Americans tune in
and social media descend into mayhem.)
The series, which arrives on UK screens
next month, gives a voice to women who
claim that the singer bullied them into
threesomes, got them pregnant, held them
prisoner and beat them for looking at other
men. They claim he asked them to call him
?Daddy? and filmed them while having sex.
This isn?t the first time R Kelly has been
publicly accused of sexual abuse and child
molestation. Allegations about his suspected

IS R KELLY
FINALLY
ABOUT TO
FACE JUSTICE?
predatory behaviour have been ongoing for
more than 25 years. The film also addresses
his controversial relationship with the late
singer Aaliyah ? she was just 15 when they
married in 1994 (legal in America at the
time) ? his infamous sex tape, allegedly
with a 14-year-old girl, and shocking
reports, which surfaced last year, alleging
the singer, now 51, has several young
women held hostage as part of a sex cult. R
Kelly has previously denied the allegations.
Despite these allegations, until now, fans
and the music world seemed to have turned a
blind eye (in fact, streams of R Kelly?s music
actually increased when the documentary
aired). Last week, Jada Pinkett Smith, Kerry
Washington and Chrissy Teigen condemned
the singer, as did Cara Delevingne ? who
lost 50,000 Instagram followers as a result.
Still, Hollywood?s Time?s Up community
has remained relatively silent, especially
when compared to the movement?s reaction
to Harvey Weinstein and their outpouring of
support for his alleged victims.
The difference? The majority of R Kelly?s
accusers are black, while Weinstein is
alleged to have mainly targeted white
women. The lack of support from feminists
towards those who claim to have suffered
at the hands of R Kelly illustrates the deep
cracks that exist within the movement.
Black women have long felt frustrated by
how the feminist movement often stays
silent on issues that involve women of
colour. Black women are also less likely to
be seen as victims, because their bodies are
often hyper-sexualised from an early age.
But change may finally be coming. Since
the documentary aired, police have launched
a new criminal investigation into the singer,
while Lady Gaga pulled her song with him,
Do What U Want (With My Body), from
streaming services. Finally, it seems R Kelly
will have to answer to his accusers.

is on their best behaviour, and everything is
Lycra. Wouldn?t you agree that we could all do
with a dose of ?just because? accessorising? Well,
you?re in luck. Beloved by Snow White and
Hillary Clinton, Blair Waldorf and Princess
Diana ? the headband is back on the style
agenda. (Searches have increased 54% in
the last year, according to Pinterest.)
If you consider the headband a little tryhard, think again. It?s actually the ultimate lazy,
January accessory. Bad hair day? Throw one on.
Last minute after-work plans? You know what
to do. Headbands do not shame you for the
sins of party season (no huffing and puffing to
squeeze back into a headband). And best of
all, if you?re feeling the new year pinch, you
can also snap one up for less than a tenner.
It?s a trend that started on the catwalk for
S/S ?19 (admittedly, these versions come in
north of �): sumptuously embellished
at Simone Rocha, slivers of diamant� at Miu
Miu, amped up and oversized at Prada (over
50 appeared at the show ? studded and
printed, satin and leather ? proving the
modern headband is anything but child?s play).
But how should you wear yours? ?Wear hair
up; try a messy ponytail with a little texture
height in the crown. Tease out the pony or tie
up in a bun,? advises hairstylist David Wadlow.
?Don?t wear the band too low ? it?s not a Guns
N? Roses concert...? We say it?s also worth
steering clear of overly pretty or prim styles and
pair your band with contrasting (casual, sporty,
tailored) pieces. MyTheresa?s fashion buying
director Tiffany Hsu (recently seen in a pearlencrusted Lele Sadoughi band) advises keeping
it simple. ?Vintage jeans
and an oversized shirt with
heels can look perfectly
chic with a headband,?
she says. ?And can also
tone down the Alice In
Wonderland look!? That
is, assuming you want to
? after all, we could all use a
little escapism right now.

WHAT WE CAN
ALL LEARN FROM
OLIVIA?S SLOWBURN SUCCESS
Post #MeToo, women?s experience and talent is finally
being rewarded on screen and in real life, saysTanya Gold
THE LANDSCAPE IS
Olivia Colman with
co-stars Emma Stone
(left) and Rachel Weisz
shifting. Last week, Glenn
Close, who is as old as Yoda
in actor years ? she?s 71 ?
won a Golden Globe for
playing a thwarted wife in The Wife. Her
character gave everything ? including her
gift for writing ? to her husband. Close
was honoured for this, when everyone
thought that Lady Gaga, who is 32, would
win for A Star Is Born. Meanwhile, Olivia
Colman, 44, for many years known only as
the best thing in Peep Show, also won a
Golden Globe for her performance as
Queen Anne in The Favourite. Colman is
not conventionally beautiful ? that is, she
does not have a generic and, for me, very
boring face ? but she stole the film from
Rachel Weisz and Emma Stone, and
stamped all over it.
Is it possible that after #MeToo women
are being forgiven for being women? That
the day of the ing閚ue ? the adolescent
fantasy, the doll ? is over? Colman is

brilliant as a bereaved, bulimic,
manipulative, childlike queen. Her
performance was a seemingly effortless
masterpiece, even if it was Sophie
from Peep Show (also a wonderful
performance), but as a Stuart Queen.
It is a pleasure to praise her. I hope
she wins an Academy Award.
But as I read the praise, which
sometimes sounds amazed ? as in
?normal-looking woman does something
incredible!? ? I was also thinking, calm
down! This is what a really talented actress
can do every day when you let her near

her mind! It only took 14 years to get
made, because the main character was,
so tragically, in the Age of Crone.
I always hoped that if #MeToo worked
and Hollywood ceased to be a meat
factory full of inadequate men and abused
women, one of the things that would
change is that older women would be
allowed ? no, encouraged, like Close and
Colman ? to burn on screen. Because their
sex appeal, or lack of it ? and I dispute that
middle-aged women aren?t attractive, they
just aren?t attractive to men who want to
be worshipped ? is no longer an issue. The
screen has been a lonely place for talented
women, and a graveyard for those seeking
to watch them act. I hope that is over now.
I am a writer, now in my forties with
a child, and one of the reasons I became
a writer is because I hoped that, if I was
lucky, I would be allowed to keep writing.
The greatest female writer alive, Hilary
Mantel, is 66, and more skilled each year.
When we are young, we are taught to live
he esteem of men.
For a woman to be herself
not swallowed by her own
llure, and then, if she has them,
by her children ? takes will
and time. That didn?t stop an
idiotic French novelist called
Yann Moix, 50, last week
insisting he couldn?t love a
50-year-old woman, because
her body is ?unlovable?.
That view was mainstream
. Now he is laughed at, and
ia Colman wears a crown.

COLMAN HAS
HAD HALF A
LIFETIME TO FEEL
AND IT SHOWS
a good part, and don?t give it instead to
one of the doll-faces because the producer
wants to touch her. Every film could have
a performance like this in it, if you just
let women be women.
Is it possible that women are now being
given more time to excel, and will now
have the natural career lifespan that men
command? That our careers will outlive
our fertile ? or ?hot? ? years and we will
not be expunged at 40?
It is normal to see women doing well at
work in their twenties and early thirties.
Out and about, and very visible, if usually,
yawningly, under men. Then come the
childbearing years ? the stupidly named
?having it all? years ? and after that? Will
women be allowed to come back now ?
Colman has three children ? and thrive?
This has always been explicit in
Hollywood. You are an ing閚ue in your
twenties, a mum or murder victim in your
thirties, and then you are a crone ? and
there isn?t much work for crones. There
is a brilliant comedy sketch starring Amy
Schumer about ?the last f**kable day? in
an actress?s career. I can name only a few
actresses in their sixties who regularly get
parts in mainstream films, and most of
them are Meryl Streep.
Now Colman tears up this narrative,
hitting the big time in her mid-fo
when most women, finally, know
who they are and what they want
Of course, she is brilliant in The
Favourite. She has had half a
lifetime to feel and it shows in
her face. Most people, artists
or not, get better at their
work, and she was given a
chance to show that in The
Favourite. Glenn Close got
better, too, as she aged. The Wife
may be her finest work ? the ang
the subtlety, the way she change

THE BEST-DRESSED
COUPLE
Timoth閑 Chalamet in
embellished Louis Vuitton
harness, designed by Virgil
Abloh, was nearly shown
up by his date ? his mum,
Nicole Flender, wearing
Off-White sleeveless
tux and trousers (also
designed by Virgil ?
it must run in the family).
Now we know where the
Beautiful Boy gets his
fashion nous from.
THE GOLDEN GLOBES is the starting
pistol of awards season, culminating with
the Academy Awards at the beginning of
March. It sets the tone for the coming
weeks in Hollywood: who?s in? Who?s
winning? And what are they wearing?
Indeed, the question about what?s being
worn on the red carpet has never been more
important. Once considered the younger,
boozier, more fun sister of the Oscars, with
last year?s blackout, the women of the
Globes threw down the gauntlet for an
increasingly politicised red carpet.
And while colour might be back in
full technicolour glory at this year?s
ceremony, the galavanised spirit remains.
You could see it not only in the TimesUp
x 2 bracelets and ribbons guests chose to
wear, but also in their canny choices of
dress and designer. (Now, who you wear
is as important as what you wear.)
What emerged at this year?s Globes
was a crystallisation of everything we?ve
seen in the red-carpeted landscape over
the last year: fashion is now being used as
a tool to say something. Whereas once it
was simply about choosing to play it safe
in a pretty dress, now the threat of ?Worst
Dressed? lists won?t deter A-listers from
being experimental (at least by Hollywood
standards). Hollywood has introspected,
and there are bigger things to worry about.
At the Globes, simple dresses co-existed
alongside extravagant productions;
black next to highlighter hues; and the
boys had as much fun as the girls. It
was a celebration of difference with
one resounding message: just wearing
a ?pretty? dress is no longer enough.

DECISION?

????? ??????????? ?????? "What's News" VK.COM/WSNWS
As Donald Trump reaches the halfway point
of his first term as President, it?s easy to
presume the scandals spell the beginning of
the end. Anna Silverman travels to America
to speak to those who put him in power ?
and discovers why they still support him
two years ago, the world
watched in shock as Donald
Trump was inaugurated as the
45th President of the United
States. Many shook their heads
in despair as a reality TV star who boasted
of ?grabbing women by the pussy? was
sworn into the highest office.
Human rights campaigners declared it
would tear back progress and former First
Lady Michelle Obama recently revealed
that she couldn?t hide her dismay on the
day, writing in her memoir Becoming that
she ?stopped even trying to smile?.
Two years on, and sure enough Trump?s
presidency has been dogged by scandal.
He?s being investigated for Russian
collusion in the 2016 election and drew
criticism when he publicly shamed alleged
sexual assault victims and suggested
white supremacists in Charlottesville
are ?very fine people?.
It would be easy to assume that the
anti-Trump sentiment might spell the
beginning of his political demise. After
each scandal, liberals have predicted that it
will surely force his supporters to abandon
him. But support for Trump has risen. In
December 2017, his approval rating was
36%, and despite a year of Twitter rants
and a porn-star payoff (Stormy Daniels
claims she received a �,000 ?hush
agreement?), it?s now up to 41.1%.
To see how Trump continues to tap
into the psyche of so many, I travel to his
supporters? heartland in the southern states
of America to meet some of those who
put him in power. I want to find out how
they feel about him two years on, and hear
how this billionaire businessman?s message
still resonates with so many people.
Nzinga Johnson is
impressed by how black
unemployment rates have

?I VOTE FOR THE PERSON?
Tessa Eades, 35, is in Hendersonville,
a smart suburb of Nashville, Tennessee,
where she lives with her husband and
two daughters. She is the CEO of One S
Consulting, a company that specialises
in Millennial cultural engagement.
When she was a student she twice voted
Democrat, but she?s now an avid Trump
supporter and looks after social media for
Nashville Republican Women. So what
changed her political views? ?After I had
my first daughter, I read tons of books
about how to navigate being a career
woman with having children and I came
across Ivanka Trump?s book, The Trump
Card,? she tells me. ?I wanted to know
how women my age balance it all and
Ivanka seemed so impressive. I thought,
if he can raise a woman like this, that says
a lot about how trustworthy he is as a
father and a leader. I vote for the person,
not the party. I was also impressed with
what they?ve both accomplished in the
business world.?
But Donald Trump has actually filed
for bankruptcy six times; does this make Tessa Eades is inspired

her wary of his competency? ?No, I respect
people more if they can recover from their
failures,? she adds. ?It shows he?s able to
replicate that success when one business
model hasn?t worked out. He?s the right
man for the job; what he?s accomplished
already is astounding. We?re already seeing
businesses growing and higher salaries
because of his tax cuts.?
?HE?S RIGHT TO BE FIRM?
Tammy Davis
voted for Trump
because of
his tough
stance on the
Mexican border
We?re sitting in a trendy coffee shop
owned by Tammy Davis, 44. Tammy
voted for Trump because of his tough
stance on the Mexican border and she?s
also pleased with his presidency so far.
Her grandmother is Mexican and
emigrated to the US when she married.
Tammy and her husband lived in Mexico
briefly and set up a charity there called
One 27 Foundation, which cares for
orphans with disabilities. What did she
think of Trump?s decision to separate
immigrant children from their parents on
the border last June and keep them in cages?
?Oh I was livid,? she says. ?It?s not that
I don?t think that situation needs to be
dealt with, but he didn?t handle it the right
way. There are so many [illegal immigrants]
falling through the cracks, it seems like it?s
a free-for-all. They take the country for
granted and he?s right to be firm on this.?
Tammy believes his ?Make America
Great Again? slogan has made people
proud of the country. What about having
a President who brags about sexual assault?
?That stuff makes me go, ?Dude, you?re a
jackass?,? she says. ?But I voted for him for
other reasons. And if we were in a men?s
locker room, I bet we?d hear a lot of men
saying that sort of thing. The fact his wife
and daughter have stood by him says a lot
more about the kind of man he really is.?
Trump is widely disliked by African
Americans: his description of Africa as
being full of ?sh**hole? countries and his
obsession with the ?birther? conspiracy that
Barack Obama was born in Kenya go some
way to explain this. A poll after the US
midterm elections in November by the
African American Research Collaborative
found 83% of black voters felt disrespected
by him and 48% labelled him a racist.
But despite this, he?s gained support
among black voters since he was
first elected. A recent survey by the
NAACP (National Association for the
Advancement of Colored People) civil
rights group put support among black
voters at 21%, compared with 8% in
2016. Henry Enten, a political analyst
for CNN, says, ?If Trump is able to hold
on to his additional African-American
support, it could aid him in 2020.?

?I?M NOT BRAINWASHED?
Nzinga Johnson, 28, is African American
and voted for Trump. She works in sales in
Raleigh, North Carolina, and is between
meetings when she pops out to tell me
about the divisions her political views have
caused in her community.
She wouldn?t wear a MAGA (Make
America Great Again) cap ?because I
don?t want to get attacked?, she says. Most
of her family think Trump?s racist and go
a while without talking to her sometimes.
?It?s hard to hear when they say I?ve been
brainwashed. But I think Trump helps
the black community, calls out corruption
and tells the truth.?
Nzinga supports Trump because she
feels his tough stance on immigration
means there are more jobs for black
Americans. ?Illegal immigrants are going
to work for less than young, black men,?
she says. ?Democrats promise they?ll be
our saviours and it?s never worked ? they
only hurt us with their welfare benefits.
You can?t create generational wealth with
welfare. Welfare takes away incentives
for the black community. We?ve seen the
lowest black unemployment rates under
Trump.? Indeed, Jason L Riley writes in
The Wall Street Journal that ?some 1.2
million additional blacks have found
work since Mr Trump was elected?.
Candice Dawkins
is frustrated that
people presume
she should be
a Democrat
?I?VE GOT MORE MONEY NOW?
Candice Dawkins, 25, is also African
American and works as communications
director for the Tennessee Republican
Party. I meet her in her office in Nashville,
where a MAGA cap and Trump banner
hang behind her desk.
She finds it frustrating that people
are surprised she voted for Trump.
?White Americans get the freedom to
choose who they want to vote for, but
as a black American, I?m thrust into
a box and it?s presumed I should be
Democrat,? she says.
Candice grew up a mile from Obama
in Chicago before moving south for
university and says, although it was
exciting seeing a black President, it didn?t
make her agree with his policies on tax.
?I was drawn to Trump because of his
tax cut promise and his vow to get the
economy moving, and he?s delivered. You
can feel the difference he?s made. You see
new businesses popping up and ?Help
Wanted? signs in the windows of stores
now. I feel more money in my pockets
because of the tax cuts he?s brought in.?
?I?LL VOTE FOR HIM IN 2020?
Michelle Garcia, 44, an events planner
from Tennessee, agrees. Her husband is
Hispanic and she says unemployment rates
have reached record lows in the Latino
community under Trump. It?s true they hit
a new low of 4.4% last year, but a number
of economists say tax cuts and additional
spending caused a temporary boost that
will fade and leave future generations in
debt. ?He?s also the first of his predecessors
to reach out to the faith community and
that?s really important to me,? she says.
Michelle didn?t vote for anyone in 2016,
but says she would vote for Trump in 2020
and is sick of being demonised by other
women for supporting him. She says
movements like the Women?s March make
women feel guilty about being stay-athome mums or voting Republican. After
the midterm election results in November,
the Women?s March tweeted: ?There?s a
lot of work to do, white women. A lot of Michelle Garcia
feels ?demonised?
for her opinions

?HE CARES ABOUT VETERANS?
Finally, I meet Jennifer West, 36, a nurse
practitioner and mum of three in Nashville.
She invites me into her office after a busy
day working in the hospital. She says one
reason she?s pleased with the job Trump?s
doing is because he?s pro-military and cares
about veterans and their access to care.
?They?re my patients so that?s important to
me,? she says. ?I also think he believes in
America and I feel safer with him in power
? the way he?s taken on the border situation.?
When we discuss the global reaction to
derogatory comments he?s made about
women, she says: ?If you were coming in
with a heart attack, would you want the
most qualified doctor or the one with the
best bedside manner? I choose the most
qualified every time and I think that?s him,
as he came from a business background.?
All of these women are unanimous
in thinking Trump has made a huge
amount of progress in very little time.
It?s true the US economy added 312,000
jobs in December and wages jumped
3.2% from a year ago ? though some
economists put that down to the
legwork put in by Obama.
Clearly, Trump is keeping his core
base happy, so, does this mean he could
win a second term?
?It seems hard to believe? but he?s
defied the odds before, and the reality is
that most incumbent Presidents do win
a second term,? says David A Graham,
former political editor of The Atlantic.
Amy Chozick, political reporter for
The New York Times, argued in her article
Why Trump Will Win A Second Term that
?Reality TV has always been the guidebook
for this presidency. And most popular
series last for six seasons.?
That was in September ? is Amy still
suggesting he could win again in two
years? ?At this point,? she says. ?I think
half the country is tuning in for what they
hope is the most dramatic finale ever.?

?I USED TO EARN SIX FIGURES.
NOW I HAVE TO ASK MY
Being financially
dependent on her
husband ? who
now obsessively
tracks their
spending ? has left
Anna Carlysle*
feeling trapped?
42
recently, i tried on a dress in & Other
Stories. A couple of years ago, I?d have
bought it without a second thought.
This time, I stood staring at its �
price tag, before finally putting it back.
It wasn?t that I couldn?t afford it. It was
because I couldn?t think of a reason to tell
my husband Ben* about why I needed it.
I didn?t want to hide it at the back of my
wardrobe like my mother used to do with
new purchases she wasn?t really ?allowed?.
While I wouldn?t classify Ben?s attitude
as abuse, he?s definitely become more
controlling over my spending.
Until last year, I was a senior manager in
an accountancy firm, earning a six-figure
salary. Ben, an architect, and I had two
children and a nanny. But when we had our
third child, something had to give
? and that something was my job. Now,
at 39, I?m financially dependent on Ben,
and I?m finding it incredibly difficult.
When we met, a decade ago, our
relationship felt equal. At the start, I
earned far more than he did as a trainee
architect, but I was happy to pay more
of our rent and then the deposit for our
house. We had our first child, a daughter,
six years ago and our second, a son, two
years later. Like a lot of women, I made
more of the sacrifices, doing the lion?s
share of admin and housework on top
of a greater share of childcare, but our
relationship stayed fundamentally the
same. Our bank accounts remained
separate ? by this time, our earnings

me, about a pair of boots I?d bought,
I got defensive and we had an argument.
I explained that I felt belittled, as if I was a
child being told off. He apologised, but
we?ve had similar rows since and now it?s
almost as if we can?t talk about it any more.
He can?t seem to help himself. It?s left me
feeling nervous about what I spend, and
jealous of my working friends who answer
only to themselves when they splurge.
Annoyingly, Ben hardly spends anything
on himself and rarely goes out, so he doesn?t
understand why I sometimes want to buy
myself something new. But I also wonder
if there?s something deeper going on; if he
resents me staying at home when he?s at
work, even though I?m actually working
harder than I ever did before. He moans
how tired he is and how stressful his job is
far more than he used to. Equally, I hear
myself complaining about how exhausting
the kids are, as if it?s a competition.
Still, it?s hard to know how much is in
my head. Friends who?ve known Ben for
years tell me I?m projecting ? that surely he
were similar, so we split bills equally and
spent the rest however we wanted. I?d
reward myself with a bag, dress or
occasional expensive meal with friends
and Ben never passed comment.
Our third child, another girl, arrived in
September 2016. When I returned to work
it was quickly apparent that three children
with two parents working long hours
wasn?t viable. We discussed one of us going
part-time and Ben argued that he was at a
crucial stage in his career. My own career,
while successful, had already been impacted
by two maternity leaves, so I was the one to
go down to three days a week, but found it
was simply impossible to cram everything
into that time frame, so I quit altogether.
Once I was no longer earning, Ben
changed his bank account to make it
joint ? rather than paying me an
allowance or ?housekeeping?, which I
would have felt was demeaning ? but,
naively, we didn?t discuss how much
either of us could spend. We agreed we?d
try not to eat into our savings and that
we?d need to cut back on holidays, but
even without my salary there was still
enough coming in. I didn?t anticipate
money becoming an issue.
However, having only one salary
seems to have made Ben obsessive about
money. He constantly checks our
account and, if he spots a transaction he
doesn?t recognise, he?ll query it. If it?s
something I?ve bought, he?ll ask whether
I really need it. When he first questioned
wouldn?t care if I bought myself something
I wanted. I do know I?m feeling an acute
loss of identity. Being successful and
earning a healthy salary made me feel
good about myself. By losing my income,
I?ve lost control and without the status
of my career, I don?t know how to measure
my value. Rationally, I know his money is
ours ? but because I?m so used to having
my own, it still feels like his.
I?m aware that I?m lucky: I have three
gorgeous children and a husband who
earns enough to support us. It feels taboo
to say I often feel resentful rather than
grateful. But money is such a loaded topic,
especially for women; when financial
dependence was a tool of oppression
until relatively recently, is it any wonder
some of us feel uncomfortable about
entering that state again?
There?s one thing I?m sure about,
though: when our children are older, I?m
going back to work. I love Ben but, while
I?m dependent on him, I feel trapped.
How DO you talk honestly about money?

adds, ?I?m sure it will hit me when I?m
sitting on the toilet on a plane.?
It?s a fittingly Horgan-esque take on
a poignant situation. Catastrophe ? that
thing Horgan has been working on with
co-writer and co-star Rob Delaney all
these years ? is now in its fourth and final
series on Channel 4. Much-loved and
critically acclaimed not only in the UK but
also the States (The New York Times called
it ?sweet and filthy?), the show, which
launched in 2015, focuses on the lives of
?Rob? and ?Sharon?, a fictional couple who
negotiate their way from accidental
pregnancy through ailing parents to
a secret drink problem and beyond.
It?s a sitcom that portrays real love
rather than the usual TV version; jokes
can be mean, and sex (even between two
good-looking actors with great chemistry)
can be unsexy. A scene in the new series
shows Sharon insisting that they do it
from behind, as she can?t get into it when
looking at Rob in his post-car-accident
neck brace. There are moments that
could make you cry, but just as many that

puncture the emotion with a laugh.
Is it hard to walk that line? ?Yes!? says
Horgan. ?It really is, because we do want
to talk about stuff that?s tricky ? we feel
it?s our responsibility now, because people
have responded in such an amazing way to
those storylines that discuss the real-life
shit that happens to all of us. But at the
same time, it?s not a documentary and it?s
not a hard-hitting drama, and we also feel
this enormous responsibility to make it
funny. I?m lucky that I write with one
of the funniest men on the planet, so it?s
less hard because of that.?
However difficult Sharon and Rob?s
lives may have been over the four series,
the show?s plots pale in comparison to
what Delaney has been through in real
life. Aged nine months, his son Henry was
diagnosed with a malignant brain tumour.
He died a year ago, aged two and a half. In
a Sunday Times interview earlier this
month, Delaney said that the bereavement
has left him ?barely surviving?, but he has
continued to go to work. ?[Grief ] has
introduced a new mood or feeling I never
knew before, and is profound,? he said.
?But jokes are still funny, things that piss
me off can still make me angry, sad can be
sad, exciting can be exciting.?
Horgan, who wrote this final series
with him in the aftermath of Henry?s
death, doesn?t comment on it. ?For me to
talk about it from my perspective? My
perspective doesn?t matter,? she says. But
she is full of admiration for Delaney.
?He is an incredible, strong, wonderful
person? I feel really lucky that I met him
? I mean, genuinely, incredibly lucky.
And he brought something out of me
as a writer that I?ll always thank him for.
I think we have a very easy time writing
Right: Sharon and Rob

together; for some reason, it was never
really a struggle.?
Look at Horgan?s CV and you?ll see
more soaring successes than struggles. In
addition to Catastrophe, she?s written the
BBC?s Pulling and Motherland, and
HBO?s Divorce, which stars Sarah Jessica
Parker. In a few years she?s gone from being
a respected part of the British comedy
world to, arguably, its reigning queen.
?It?s lovely when people respond well
to your stuff ? it?s the greatest feeling
ever,? she says. ?But you definitely do feel
pressure. Sometimes I think, ?Oh, I?d love
to put that out anonymously.? But it keeps
you on your toes as well and that?s a good
thing. It never feels like there?s a sense
of phoning it in, because I just wouldn?t
get away with that.?
Several of Horgan?s projects have circled
around romantic life ? dating and casual
sex (Pulling), love (Catastrophe), and
the dismantling of a marriage (Divorce).
The 48-year-old has been married to the
property developer Jeremy Rainbird since
2005, and they have two children. Has all
of that reflection on relationships made
her better at her own? ?I think what it does
do is make you realise how much easier
it is to write about something than to
actually do it, you know?? she says. ?I
mean, all sorts of great wisdom comes out
of us when we?re writing Rob and Sharon.
It?s like giving advice to a friend ? it?s so
easy to have perspective on someone else?s
WE WANT TO
TALK ABOUT
STUFF THAT?S
TRICKY, BUT IT
HAS TO BE FUNNY
situation. We?re the puppet-masters of
those characters? relationships and it?s
much harder to do that with your own.?
For the characters you?ve grown
attached to in Catastrophe, what you can
expect in this final season is a respectful
send-off. ?Not just for Rob and Sharon,
but with the other characters we wanted
to make sure that we paid homage to their
stories, that we didn?t gloss over things,?
she says. ?It was hard because we wanted
to find different ways of ending their
stories ? some optimistic, some really
tricky and difficult. But with Rob and
Sharon, they?ve had two kids, and their
lives have changed beyond recognition,
and so they?re not the same people that
they were at the start. But they?re still
idiots at times. Even when you?re feeling at
your most grown-up, something ridiculous
that you think is very teenage behaviour
happens, and you surprise yourself.?
If there?s one calling card of Horgan?s
work, it?s that it?s always observed with
painful accuracy. She is forever listening
out for anecdotes she can use, she confirms,
although it gets a bit tiring. ?I definitely said
to myself, this year I have to step back a bit.
I mean, I would love just to hear one story
from a friend without filing it in the back of
my brain and sneaking off to write it down.?

WOMB WITH A VIEW
Every week, a woman reflects on
motherhood ? whether she has children or not
STOP JUDGING MUMS ? UNTIL
YOU?VE TRIED BEING A PARENT
Victoria Young learned
the hard way that
parenting is anything
but child?s play?
uring my
pregnancy, I
remember sitting
next to a woman
in a caf� who was
bottle-feeding her
baby. When she saw
me casually glancing
over, she looked panicked and shouted,
?It?s expressed milk!?
I didn?t really get it until a few months
into motherhood and the penny dropped:
when you have a baby your parenting
choices are suddenly fair game for
judgement by the whole world.
And it?s not only other parents who
judge you. In fact, when I think back to my
views on parenting before I became a mum,
I hang my head in shame. ?Why would
anyone give their child a dummy?? I?d
think, looking at babies on the bus. Cut to
six months into motherhood, when I?d tuck
my son up in bed with not just one dummy
but three or four. (Why? Because if he lost
one in the night he?d wake up crying.)
Another pre-baby judgement clanger
came when I jeopardised my relationship
with one of my oldest friends after I
accused her of being ?rigid? for requesting
that Sunday lunch start at 12 instead
of my suggested ?2-ish?. I was oblivious to
the compromise she?d already made by
agreeing to bring her two toddlers to a
crowded pub to fit in with my child-free
existence. A few years later, when my
D
own two-year-old would reliably have a
demonic freak-out the moment his blood
sugar levels dropped, I actually rang her
to apologise for being such a numpty.
I confess, too, that I used to roll my
eyes at parents who enquired what I
planned to feed their children before they
came to my house. ?How rude!? I?d think.
?Can?t they just eat what they?re given??
I have since learned the hard way that,
while you can lead a boy to broccoli,
you can?t make him actually eat it.
I cringe to write this but I was also,
during our NCT classes, brazenly
judgemental about the women in my
group who were planning on pain relief.
?Don?t they realise an epidural raises the
risk of other interventions?? I?d say to my
husband. I might even have tried to list the
reasons why natural birth was preferable to
a C-section to one friend having a planned
Caesarean. Somehow, impending
parenthood allowed me to forget that
a) your body, your choice, but also
b) some people have no alternative to
a C-section or else they and/or their
baby will actually, you know, die.
Motherhood
has turned
all Victoria?s
pre-baby
expectations
on their head
Part of the judgement problem is
that there is so much advice ? some of
it bordering on doctrine ? about the
?right? and ?wrong? ways to raise children.
And it?s so easy to get sucked in. Take
breastfeeding. When I was planning my
first few months of motherhood (which,
I?d reasoned, would be more or less the
same as life before, but with an added
bundle of joy), I honestly wondered
? having consumed a great deal of
?Breastapo? propaganda ? why on earth any
woman wouldn?t agree that ?breast is best?.
And then the universe taught me
the meaning of hubris: after my, ahem,
emergency Caesarean, my attempts to
breastfeed my son quickly became the
most extreme agony I?ve ever experienced.
Far worse, a few days later I was admitted
to hospital because he wasn?t feeding
properly and was seriously dehydrated. He
was then tube-fed for three months while
doctors investigated his swallow. Luckily,
he turned out to be absolutely fine. But I
was so fixated on feeding him only breast
milk that I expressed milk every three
hours ? setting an alarm to wake during
the night ? for six months. Looking back,
I?d say I actually endangered my mental
health ? and missed out on valuable time
with my baby because I was so convinced
I needed to do ?the best? for him.
The truth is we often reserve our
harshest judgement for ourselves. A friend
who had two children very close together
was so determined to be a good mum that
she overcompensated and tried to be Mum
of the Year when her second was born. She
ended up with post-natal depression, partly
because she wouldn?t admit that she was
struggling. ?I was so terrified of people
turning around and saying, ?You shouldn?t
????? ??????????? ?????? "What's News" VK.COM/WSNWS
Learning on the job:
Victoria Young
with her son and
husband Tom
have had your children so close together
if you can?t cope,?? she says.
Let?s face it ? the last thing any new
mum needs is to feel guilty about their
parenting choices. We are all just doing
our best. Also, it?s easy to forget how
much comes down to luck. A friend
recently confessed she spent three years
congratulating herself on what a ?natural
mother? she was after her first daughter
quickly slept through the night, ate what
she was given and played beautifully
with other children. Then her second
daughter slept in hour-long bursts, refused
any food that wasn?t beige and went
around walloping all her little friends.
THE LAST THING
ANY NEW MUM
NEEDS IS TO
FEEL GUILTY.
WE?RE ALL JUST
DOING OUR BEST
At which point my friend realised that
?parenting? has very little to do with the
human beings that emerge.
And yet we all still feel free to judge.
I get it. I really do. Apart from anything
else, judging others makes you feel better
about your own choices. It?s just that
while principles are one thing, reality
often turns out to be very different. And if
motherhood has taught me one thing it is
this: whatever gets you through the night
(or the bus journey, meal, car ride or glass
of wine at the pub) really is all right.

MEN: STOP PHWOAH-ING
OR NAH-ING US
CATHERINE
G R AY
PHOTOS: DAVID YEO, GETTY (POSED BY MODEL)
Catherine Gray found herself on the
receiving end of a misogynistic backlash
when she wrote about being single. She
explores why men feel it?s their birthright to
rate us, especially when we?re unattached...
Last week, I published a piece in a
broadsheet newspaper about taking a year
off dating and arriving, aged 38, at a place
where I?m happily single. Over 100 men
hit ?Comment? on that article, and instead
of responding to my actual words ? given
that I?m a writer rather than a model ?
opined on my appearance.
Despite knowing better, it stung. I cried
for around four hours and then went to
yoga to find my zen. Except, as I walked
past a pub wearing zero make-up, a bobble
hat and a voluminous parka, a group of
men felt entitled to stop talking, nudge
each other, stare and comment on my arse.
In my misled twenties, I would have
felt re-validated by this, but I know now
this is merely the other side of the same
coin: that some men feel it is their
birthright to openly appraise women,
to ?phwoar? or ?nah? us.
I?ve written controversial pieces using
those same pictures before and nobody
ever felt compelled to yell that I?m a ?five
pinter?. So why did this piece stir these men
to dart from their dark corners in order to
throw ?minger? rocks through my window?
Interestingly, two female journalists who
have also written pieces about being
contentedly single got in touch to tell
me they?d experienced a similar reaction.
Why? Misogyny is becoming more
radicalised and pitchfork-jabbing in
the private underground tunnels of the
Social media
creates a forum for
misogynistic men
?manosphere?, most recently with the rise
of the men?s rights groups, who believe that
feminism is toxic and men are oppressed,
including online communities such as
MGTOW (Men Going Their Own Way
and rejecting all women). Unfortunately,
the internet facilitates this: when we enter
a cave with an echo, we may start off
tentative, but we end up shouting.
Chauvinists feel threatened when
MISOGYNY IS
BECOMING MORE
RADICALISED AND
PITCHFORK-JABBING
women talk of shrinking the significance
of men in their lives, because the status quo
has served them well. They?re in denial that
men have a biological clock too; in denial
that we all crinkle and soften with age (as
we should). They think they?re George
Clooney, basically.
Once I?d recovered, I decided to publish
the worst comments on social media, and
to wear them like a statement necklace
or a slogan T-shirt. ?One out of 10?, ?a
pump then a dump?, ?old and barren? and
?undesirable? were the charmers that made
the cut. And right on cue (despite my
specifically saying ?I?m not looking for
praise to counter this?), many men messaged
me to say, ?Well, I think you?re hot.?
Way to miss the point, guys. This was
my way of saying, ?Hey, sugarheads, I don?t
give a flying duck what you give me out of
10.? Women are not show-ponies trotting
around a ring encircled by potential buyers.
Dear Charlie Brooker, please write a
table-turning Black Mirror episode about
this ? because I suspect that men would be
rather startled to suddenly find themselves
inside that ring.

advanced adult. Catherine?s ?The Unexpected

Since when did vitamins cost triple figures?
Sophie Qureshi investigates the latest luxury supplements?
SUPER
SUPPS!
POPPING A PILL or three with your
morning juice has become standard
practice. According to Mintel, 65% of
us now take supplements, and the UK
vitamins and supplements market is
estimated to be worth a whopping �2
million. But while vitamins were once
just something you picked up when
stocking up on tampons and toothpaste,
now a new breed of ?super supplements?
is shaking up the wellness landscape.
In just three months, supplement sales
on Net-A-Porter have gone up by 30%,
proving our willingness to invest in
pills with distinctly premium price tags
(some cost almost �0 for a three-month
supply). In fact, when one such super-supp,
Lyma, launched last year, it sold out within
two weeks, prompting a waiting list of
3,000 for the next batch. But is it really
worth spending almost as much as a
designer handbag on a pot of pills?
Or are we just swallowing the hype?
WHY SO SPENNY?
When every supermarket boasts an aisle
crammed full of supplements, and you
can easily pick up a multi-vitamin that
claims to give you everything you need
for less than a tenner, it?s reasonable to
wonder why you?d choose to pay more.
?Multi-vitamins are often comprised
of cheap, insoluble synthetic materials,
inadequate for absorption,? says Simon
White, nutritional scientist and product
development manager for the Supplement
Factory, which produces supplements for
all sorts of brands, from high-street to
high-end. ?Most multi-vitamin ingredients
are non-bioavailable, which means they?re
unlikely to be absorbed from the gut into
the systemic circulation, so they?re pretty
pointless. The body is much better placed
to absorb natural food source ingredients,
rather than synthetic equivalents. After all,
our digestive system creates enzymes and
acids to specifically extract the goodness
73
????? ??????????? ?????? "What's News" VK.COM/WSNWS
THE
SUPPLEMENTS
YOU NEED
DEPEND ON
GENETICS
of food, rather than synthetic materials.?
Now that might seem like an argument
for swerving supplements altogether and
relying solely on your diet to get the
nutrients you need. ?If you have good
nutrition, you don?t need supplements,?
agrees Dr Paul Clayton, pharmaconutritional expert and fellow at Oxford
University. ?We endured for millions of
years without them. But you?d need to
eat only unprocessed foods and eat 3,000
calories of them a day in order to give
your body all the nutrients it needs to
function.? And let?s face it, how many of
us do that? ?In Britain, more than half the
calories we eat come from ultra-processed
foods ? foods very high in calories but
with almost no nutritional value at all.
It?s a nutritional nightmare.?
W H AT S U P P ?
So unless your diet is bang on point (and if
it is, we salute you), supplementing makes
some sense. Just remember the clue is in
the name: supplements should always be
?supplementary? to a healthy diet. Popping
pills doesn?t give you a free pass to skimp
on your five-a-day (which, incidentally,
should be more like 10-a-day). But with
so many brands pushing different pills and
powders, how do you know which ones
are worth a pop? ?It?s very difficult,? admits
Dr Clayton. ?The industry is misleading
and lacks robust regulation. The products
often don?t live up to their claims ? 90%
of them are unproven and unvalidated.?
White agrees: ?The best thing you can
do is to educate yourself and do your
research. Look for supplements with ?food
source? ingredients ? they tend to be
better than synthetic ones because the
body is more likely to be able to assimilate
them. Branded ingredients that are
patented also tend to be a better bet,
because there is likely to be clinical data
behind them.? Lyma, for example, uses
seven patented ingredients with over 200
clinical trials to support their effectiveness.
While lots of supplements contain
turmeric for its anti-inflammatory
properties, the active compound in
turmeric, cucurmin, has very poor
bioavailability (only around 40%), even
though it?s natural. Lyma contains a
patented form called HydroCurc, which
has been technologically enhanced to
make it almost 100% bioavailable. That
kind of technology is why a month?s supply
of Lyma will set you back �9. But don?t
assume that a hefty price tag always means
you?re getting the good stuff. ?Sometimes
you?re just paying for the brand and
packaging, so you do need to scrutinise
the actual ingredients,? says White.
YO U R P I L L
PRESCRIPTION
Every office seems to have at least one
staffer with so many pots of pills on her
desk, it?s a wonder she doesn?t rattle when
she walks. But since most of us don?t want
to take 10 pills every morning, how do
you know which nutrients you actually
need? ?No two people are the same ?
the supplements you need depend on
your genetic requirement for various
micronutrients, phytonutrients, healthy
fats and proteins,? says White. ?External
factors come into it, too ? pollution, stress,
sleep, and exercise all play a role in which
nutrients are most relevant.?
In the future, it will become standard
for supplements to offer us personalised
nutrition based on our DNA. ?Certain
genes are coded towards particular
diseases, like diabetes, high blood pressure
and cancers,? says White. ?The idea is that
from looking at someone?s DNA, you can
create a targeted nutritional strategy, with
supplements specifically tailored to their
genetic predisposition.?
We?re already starting to see this
emerging ? VITL (vitl.com) offers a
DNA Nutrition Test, �9, which involves
a simple saliva swab you take at home.
Following analysis, you?re sent a detailed
report on your genetic traits, with
personalised nutritional recommendations
to work with your body.
But according to White, a basic blood
test can be more useful to work out what
supplements you need. ?Your DNA doesn?t
tell you about your current nutritional
status, whereas simple blood and urine
tests can give you a full breakdown of your
vitamin and mineral levels.? VITL also
offers this with its Vitamin Blood Test,
�.95, or try Genova Diagnostics (gdx.
net) who offer a range of tests to identify
nutritional deficiencies, as well as genomic
profiling if you want to go the whole hog.

lands on the Grazia beauty desk pretty
much every day of the week. But what?s
really interesting in the scent-o-sphere
right now is not so much the notes
themselves, but the new ways to wear them.
Once upon a time, spritzing from a bottle
was the only way to get your fragrance fix.
But now the perfume industry is waking up
to the fact that modern lifestyles demand
more options (anyone who?s endured the
trauma of having their beloved eau de
parfum smash in their handbag or get
confiscated by airport security will know
what we?re talking about). It all kicked
off last year, when fragrance doyenne
Jo Malone launched the inspired Jo Loves
Fragrance Paintbrush, �, and Byredo
unveiled its Kabuki Fragrances, � ?
micro-fine perfumed powders, housed
in a retractable brush. Now other brands
are ?thinking outside the bottle?, with
a crop of super-cool innovations that
push the fragrance frontiers?
PEN PALS
Perfume pens were last year?s biggest
fragrance craze, and they?re ideal for
scenting on-the-go. Simply scribble on
to your ?perfume points? (any areas that
generate heat, although avoid behind the
ear as the skin there produces a lot of
sebum, which distorts scent). Mugler?s
Perfuming Pens, �, which look like
jumbo crayons and come in three
fragrances (Angel, Aura and Alien), sold
out at The Perfume Shop less than a month
after launch. They?re now back in stock but
are limited edition, so don?t hang about.
You?ll need to be equally speedy to snap
up YSL?s Black Opium Click & Go Eau
de Parfum, � ? a glittery version of the
iconic Touche 蒫lat pen, which houses 200
applications of the bewitching coffee- and
vanilla-laced scent. For any tweens in your
life, Scent Republik?s slightly less spenny
Scent Stiks, � make an excellent pressie
that?s easy to sneak into school for fragrant
doodling. Where were these when we had
to get through double maths?
DAB HAND
Fragrance ?dabbers? follow similar principles
to perfume pens, only they look more like
old-school stain removers, with a mesh
applicator you dab to apply the scent. We
dig the utilitarian feel of Urban Outfitters?
Fragrance Dabbers, $14, which come in
four sophisticated scents that defy their
modest price tags (our favourite is Juniper
Palm, an unusual mix of melon, green tea
leaf and driftwood). They?re currently only
available in the US, so make a note to stock
up next time you?re stateside. ways to smel

WORDS SOPHIE Q URESHI
????? ??????????? ?????? "What's News" VK.COM/WSNWS
We?ve long been ardent fans of oil
fragrances ? particularly Le Labo?s Perfume
Oils, �2, which come with a pipette and
can be used anywhere from pulse points to
hair (a single drop of Th� Noir 29 massaged
through your locks lingers ALL day). So
we?re excited that oils are definitely having
a moment right now. Hot new brand-towatch Ostens has created a line of five
Pr閜arations, from � ? single raw material
oils designed to be worn alone or layered
beneath your fragrance. Each contains the
highest permitted concentration of one
chosen ingredient (rose, vetiver, cashmeran,
jasmine, patchouli and cedarwood) and
they?re divine. Also well worth a sniff is the
new Narciso For Her Oil Musc Parfum, �
? a reissue of the iconic oil that launched
15 years ago and devastated fans when it
was discontinued. As with all perfume
oils, the scent stays closer to the skin than
a traditional alcohol-based fragrance,
which makes it infinitely sexier.
CUSHY JOB
Cushion compacts may have moved into
the make-up mainstream, but they?re fast
becoming the chicest way to scent skin
too. Chanel totally stole our hearts (and
our ) with its covetable Chance Eau
Tendre Delicate Fragrance Touch-Up,
�, while Kenzo?s Flower By Kenzo Le
Cushion, �.50, distils the notes of the
signature scent into a ?perfumed jelly?
that feels sublimely refreshing when
patted on to pulse points. The real beauty
of these is they allow you to scent yourself
subtly on the train or bus, without
squirting fellow commuters in the eye.
Plus, the mirrored compacts mean you
can touch up your lipstick/check your
teeth for seeds at the same time.
MAGIC INK
If you like the idea of a tattoo but have
never quite plucked up the courage, Amkiri
Fragrance Ink offers an appealing alternative,
without the pain or lifelong commitment.
Billed as the world?s first ?visual fragrance?,
it turns scent into a multi-sensory art-form,
with an ink-like liquid that you apply using
a fine-tipped brush (or a stencil or stamp,
for the not-so-steady of hand). Once you
have created your design, the ink diffuses a
fragrance that lasts for up to 12 hours ? and
no, it won?t run if you take a spin class or
get caught in the rain. It will be available
to buy in the next couple of months ? sign
up at amkiri.com to be the first to try it.

The anti-ageing CC cream to suit your complexion all year round
OLIVIA VON HALLE
DESIGNER
EST蒃 LAUDER REVITALIZING
SUPREME GLOBAL ANTI-AGING
CC CREME SPF10, �
I love the power of make-up and how it
can transform how I look and feel. Even
if I?ve had an awful night?s sleep, I can still
feel good with a bit of coverage. Which is
exactly what Est閑 Lauder?s Revitalizing
Supreme Global Anti-Aging CC Creme
SPF10 does ? it reflects the person I am
on the inside, on the outside.
When you first squeeze it out of the
tube, you question how it?s going to look
on your skin, as it has a slight greyish tint.
But as soon as you blend it in, the colour
changes and cleverly adapts to your skin
tone. The best part? I don?t have to scour
high and low for different foundations to
match my skin throughout the changing
seasons. Regardless of whether I?ve had
too much sun or hibernated for winter,
this tube of joy will match my complexion.
I like to warm it on the back of my
hand before applying with my fingertips.
For such a lightweight cream, it does a
brilliant job of hiding any imperfections
and smoothing the texture of my skin,
leaving it looking luminous and radiant
all day long. The finished result is my
skin, but better.

Ignore the gym peacocks ? the
ones who perform a ?move? and

to catch people?s attention. They are
far more interested in themselves

O Ask for advice. Don?t ever enter
a gym and use the equipment
before having an induction or
you?ll risk injury. Exercise or gym
instructors generally have great
people skills so don?t be afraid
to ask questions, even if it?s,
?How do I target my back fat??
O There are a million ways to
move ? ballet, Zumba, aerial
yoga, running, walking, netball,
boxing, climbing, stretching,
Pilates, hockey, swimming...
Hell, you can take up bowling.
O Rope in a buddy ? or maybe
don?t. Working out with a friend
helps for some, but I like exercising
on my own for the headspace and
time away from anyone shouting
O
?Mummy, I?m HUNGRY? 24/7.
O Remember, everybody started
somewhere, even the person
performing the one-handed
handstand push-up. They might
have been sat on their sofa a year ag
O Get a good playlist ? this will
distract you and mentally chee
you on. Headphones are also
a bit of a human shield if you
don?t want that annoying person
to chat to you in the gym.
O Stop overthinking exercise.
Don?t worry about the people
around you, whether you?ll get
thirsty or hungry or whether it will
hurt. My mantra is ?Matter over
Mind? not ?Mind over Matter?.
You need to focus on what you?re
doing (a form of mindfulness),
not what you?re thinking.
O Still scared? If all else fails,
imagine everybody jigging

half my friends exercise
regularly and the other half
hibernate at the very mention of
the word ?workout?. Very few have
ever set foot in a gym. When I ask
what they?re scared of, the most
common replies are: ?I don?t want to
look stupid? or ?Everyone else knows
what they?re doing?. This Girl Can,
the exercise initiative set up by Sport
England to encourage more women
to move regularly, confirms our
fear of exercise in the UK. In a
survey that was conducted last
year, ?Fear of judgement? and ?Lack
of confidence? were some of the
main reasons for not moving.
I started exercising properly
aged 36. Knowing what I know
now about the benefits of exercise
(clearer head, feeling of calm,
the ability to cope with life, let
alone gaining a better bum),
I wish I?d got into it younger.
I also know what it?s like to start
from scratch. Here?s my advice
on overcoming exercise angst.
O Most gym fears are in your head
? there is actually nothing that
scary about a room with squidgy
yoga mats, inflatable rubber balls,
things you push or pull and
people in overexposing Lycra. And

Frenchman?s Cove
hit the road
by Karen Edwards
Escape the tourist region of Montego Bay
to discover the real Jamaica. Hire a car
and invest in a road map ? other than a
few potholes in lesser-visited spots, the
highways are easy to navigate and mostly
tarmac and, outside of Montego Bay and
Kingston, tend to be quieter. UK driving
licences are accepted by hire companies,
but organise travel insurance that covers
hire car use beforehand.
Head to Port Antonio where you?ll find
the local spirit flourishing in the form of
markets, street-food stalls and traditional
Jamaican life ? often with the sound of
Bob Marley distantly filling the air. Food
van Patty Express (West Street) dishes out
delicious lunchtime staples of juicy beef,
chicken and vegetable patties. The nearby
Blue Lagoon is a dreamy mix of beautiful
swimming holes and stunning seafront
properties. In fact, it was here that Brooke
Shields filmed Blue Lagoon and Tom
Cruise set up his beach bar in Cocktail.
Check it out with a boat ride, run by locals,
that costs about �pp.
The port town of Ocho Rios has a great
craft market on Main Street, where you can
find everything from wooden carvings and
textiles to novelty T-shirts and handbags,
all made by local vendors.
LAURA SAYS: Book a private cabana
at the beachfront resort Negril
Margaritaville (from �). The vibe is
exactly what you?d expect from the
Caribbean islands ? reggae playing,
volleyball games in the sand, a huge pool
and the scent of a sizzling barbecue filling
the air. The rustic Tiki Beach Bar serves
island-inspired refreshments all day ? the
frozen margarita is a must.
NERSIBELIS SAYS: Make Frenchman?s
Cove ? an idyllic crescent-shaped beach
paradise where the cooling freshwater
meets the warm sea ? a priority. Get there
early for a prime position on the pristine
sand and enjoy the lagoon before the
crowds come in during the afternoon.
Twenty-five minutes away, Long Bay?s
sweeping golden sand beach is the perfect
place to relocate to for a change of scenery
(and more space) when the cove gets busy.
This is a favourite with the locals so you?ll

swimming spots before sharing with you
the story of Martha Brae ? a local witch

For an otherworldly experience, book

Rick?s Caf�, Negril
where to eat
by Laura Sinclair and
Nersibelis Rodriguez Burrowes
Melia Braco Village
LAURA SAYS: Rick?s Caf� in Negril is the
place to watch Jamaica?s incredible sunsets
and tuck into a delicious dinner as you do
so. The menu specialises in international
dishes with a Caribbean twist. The rum
cocktails aren?t in short supply either.
(��pp; facebook.com/rickscafejamaica.)
Scotchies in Montego Bay is a big hit
with locals ? watch your spicy pork being
cooked on the barbecue; the rum ribs are
a favourite (under �; facebook.com/pages/
Scotchies/117893628270156).
NERSIBELIS SAYS: Boston Bay Jerk Centre,
made up of five or six simple stalls, is where
the traditional jerk recipe started. It?s very
real, rustic and a casual finger-food type place,
where the meat (mostly chicken and pork) is
cooked in front of you on a pimento wood
fire and served up on sheets of foil. Sit on
wooden stools around a communal table with
the locals and enjoy the feast (from �a dish;
bostonjerkcenter.com). Vegetarians will love
the coconut-infused curries at Calabash Ital
in Ocho Rios (from � DaCosta Drive).

COOK NOW, EAT LATER
Inspired by this Insta-sensation of a dish (right), we?ve
rustled up four other great meals that are perfect for
batch cooking, giving you brilliantly tasty, quick suppers
easy to make and a stunning vibrant colour
? this is the Spiced Chickpea Stew with
Coconut and Turmeric that dominated the
internet, with thousands of people from
New York to London posting Insta-images
of their version of the vegetarian dish
originally created by Alison Roman for
her regular column in The New York Times.
So what?s the secret of its success?
?I think it has something to do with the
approachability of ingredients ? even if
you?re afraid to cook a chicken thigh or
piece of fish, you can absolutely cook a can
of chickpeas,? says Alison. ?It?s affordable,
it?s healthy(ish), and made of mostly pantry
staples that most people have on hand.
And it?s so visually appealing ? it?s got
this amazingly vibrant yellow colour,
and from sharing other people?s versions,
it?s clear that no matter who?s making it,
it?s going to look gorgeous.?
How to
properly freeze
Before you freeze your food,
wait until it is cool (but don?t
leave it cooling for longer than
two hours). What container you
use depends on the size of your
freezer. If you have room, a large
container with a lid is an easy
option, especially if you want to
save more than one portion at
a time. If you?re tight for space,
zip-top freezer bags are great
and can be used to freeze
everything from soups to stews.
86
It?s perfect for this time of year, too,
with our desire for comfort food that
makes us feel good. ?I wanted to do
something vegetarian that felt fun to
eat, not like you were depriving yourself
of something else,? says Alison.
It?s perfect for batch cooking, too.
Just make a few servings, freeze, then
defrost and reheat when hungry!
SPICED CHICKPEA
STEW WITH COCONUT
AND TURMERIC
Serves: 4-6
60ml olive oil, plus more for serving
4 garlic cloves, chopped
1 large yellow onion, chopped
1 (5cm) piece of ginger, finely chopped
Kosher salt and black pepper
1� tsp ground turmeric, plus more for serving
1 tsp red-pepper flakes, plus more for serving
850g tin of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
850ml of full-fat coconut milk
475ml vegetable stock
1 bunch Swiss chard, kale or collard greens,
stems removed, torn into bite-size pieces
150g mint leaves, for serving
Yogurt, for serving (optional)
Toasted pitta, lavash or other flatbread,
for serving (optional)
1 Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat.
Add garlic, onion and ginger. Season with salt
and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until
the onion is translucent and starts to brown a
little around the edges ? about 3 to 5 minutes.
2 Add turmeric, red-pepper ?akes and
chickpeas, and season with salt and pepper.
Cook, stirring frequently, so the chickpeas sizzle
and fry a bit in the spices and oil, until they?ve
started to break down and get a little browned
and crisp, about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove about
150g of chickpeas and set aside for garnish.
3 Using a wooden spoon or spatula, further
crush the remaining chickpeas slightly to release
their starchy insides (this will help thicken the
stew). Add the coconut milk and stock to the
pot, and season with salt and pepper. Bring to
a simmer, scraping up any bits that have formed
on the bottom of the pot. Cook, stirring
occasionally, until the stew has thickened and
?avours have started to come together ? about
30 to 35 minutes. If, after 30 to 35 minutes, you
want the stew a bit thicker, keep simmering
until you?ve reached your desired consistency.

BR AISED CHICKEN, TOULOUSE
SAUSAGES AND WHITE BEANS
THIS HEARTY CASSEROLE is
1 Heat the oven to 170?C/Fan 150癈/Gas
inspired by cassoulet, the garlicky
bean stew from South-West France
traditionally made with various fresh
and preserved meats. In this baked
version, chicken thighs and meaty
Toulouse sausages are cooked in an
aromatic red wine, tomato and onion
gravy with creamy haricot beans. It
goes down well whatever the weather.
Mark 3. Slice the bacon into batons. Heat
the vegetable oil in a spacious, lidded heat
and ovenproof casserole dish over a medium
heat. Brown the sausages thoroughly then
remove them to a mixing bowl. Wipe out
the pan, add a tablespoon of olive oil and fry
the bacon while you peel, halve and slice the
onions into half-moons. Tie the herbs
together with string. Peel and chop the garlic.
Add the onions to the bacon with the herbs.
Stir occasionally and cook for about 15
minutes until the onions turn sloppy. Add the
garlic, cook for a couple of minutes then tip
the contents of the pan over the sausages.
2 Dust the chicken with ?our. Heat the rest
of the olive oil in the pan and brown the
chicken in batches. Return all the chicken to
the pan, then pour in the wine, stirring. Let
it bubble for a couple of minutes, then add
the stock, sausages and onion and simmer,
giving the odd stir, for 5 minutes.
3 Add in the tomatoes, beans and lemon
juice, and season generously. Simmer for 5
minutes, give a ?nal stir and remove from
the heat. Carefully drape a sheet of baking
parchment over the top, letting it rest on the
food. Catch the edges of the paper with the
lid. Cook in the oven for 60 minutes.
4 Stir well, taste and adjust the seasoning.
Chop the parsley, stir it in and serve.
Serves: 4-6
6 rashers of smoked streaky bacon
1 tbsp vegetable oil
6 Toulouse sausages
3 tbsp olive oil
2 red onions (about 300g)
1 sprig of rosemary
3 sprigs of thyme
1 bay leaf
2 cloves of garlic
8 free-range chicken thigh fillets
2 tbsp flour
150ml red wine
300ml chicken stock
400g tin of chopped tomatoes
2 x 400g tins of haricot or butter beans
A squeeze of lemon juice
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
25g flat-leaf parsley

STEW
Determining the perfect stew thickness is
a personal journey! Taste the chickpeas and
sauce as you cook.
4 Add greens (omit if freezing, and add when
reheating instead) and stir, making sure they?re
submerged. Cook for a few minutes so they wilt
and soften ? about 3 to 7 minutes, depending on
what you?re using. (Swiss chard and spinach will
wilt much faster than kale or collard greens.)
Season again with salt and pepper.
5 Divide among bowls and top with mint, the
reserved chickpeas, a sprinkle of red-pepper
?akes and a good drizzle of olive oil. Serve
alongside yogurt and toasted pitta, if using;
dust the yogurt with turmeric, if you like.

THIS DAL USES the English-grown
1 Put the split peas in a bowl, cover with cold
yellow split pea. Cooking the onions for
a long time is essential to create a base
flavour, though there is also fresh beetroot
and dried beetroot powder added at the
very last minute ? both give the dish a
burst of bright colour and a surprising
sweetness. This dal doesn?t necessarily
need anything else with it, besides yogurt
and mango chutney, but flatbreads can
be a welcome companion.
water, drain immediately and repeat until the
water is clear ? you may need to do this 10
times. Place the peas in a saucepan with 2
litres of cold water and the bay leaves, bring
to the boil then reduce the heat and simmer
for 25 minutes. Add the diced beetroot and
cook for 25 minutes more, skimming off the
froth that forms on the surface.
2 Meanwhile, melt the butter in a separate,
large heavy-based saucepan over a mediumhigh heat. Add the onions and a good pinch
of salt and cook for 15-20 minutes, stirring
occasionally so the onions just catch (but
don?t burn), and reduce and intensify in
?avour. Lower the temperature, then add the
garlic, ginger and cumin seeds. Cook for a
further 3-4 minutes, then add the turmeric,
garam masala, ?nely chopped coriander stalks
and chilli. Place a lid on top and cook for 3
minutes, then remove the pan from the heat.
3 By the time the lentils have been cooking
for 45 minutes, about half will be mushy and
the beetroot will be tender. At this point, add
two thirds of the onions, plus the coconut.
Let the ?avours mingle over a very low heat
for 10 minutes, adding water as required.
4 Finally, sprinkle the beetroot powder over
the dal, mixing it in thoroughly to ensure the
vivid purple spreads throughout. Serve,
dividing the remaining onions between the
bowls, with a dollop of yogurt and chutney.
Serves: 4
300g yellow split peas
2 bay leaves
450g beetroot, peeled and cut into 1cm dice
35g butter
3 onions, thinly sliced (about 400g)
3 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
Thumb-sized piece of fresh ginger (about 35g),

1 tsp cumin seeds

For the sauce:
50ml olive oil
1 large onion, peeled and
very finely chopped
100ml dry white wine
2 tbsp tomato paste
680g tomato passata
10 fresh basil leaves
For the meatballs:
2 whole aubergines
Olive oil for cooking and shallow-frying
300g lean minced beef
1 garlic clove, peeled and squashed
to a paste
� tsp freshly grated nutmeg
50g Parmesan, freshly grated
1 medium egg, beaten
100g fresh breadcrumbs
1 Preheat the oven to 180癈/Fan 160癈/
Gas Mark 4. Put the aubergines for the
meatballs in an ovenproof dish, drizzle
with a little olive oil and bake for 30
minutes. Then cut the aubergines in half
and scoop out the pulp. Mash the pulp
and keep to one side. Discard skins.
2 For the sauce, heat the olive oil in a
large saucepan and fry the onion until
soft ? about 5 minutes. When soft, add
the wine, tomato paste, tomato passata
and the basil. Stir well and leave to cook
gently for 30-40 minutes.
3 Meanwhile, continue with the meatballs
by mixing together the beef mince, the
soft aubergine pulp, garlic paste, nutmeg,
Parmesan, beaten egg, breadcrumbs and
some salt and pepper in a bowl. Mix well
and shape with your hands into the shape
of rugby balls and the size of apricots.
Shallow-fry in olive oil to brown on all
sides. Add to the sauce and keep warm.
4 When ready, cook the pasta (600g for
this recipe) in plenty of boiling salted
water for 8 minutes or until al dente.
Drain well. Pour the pasta into a large
deep serving dish and mix well with half
of the sauce. Divide between individual
dishes, pour the rest of the sauce on
the top and sprinkle with the Parmesan.
1 Put a heavy-based pan on a medium heat
and add the butter. Once it has melted,
add the celeriac, celery, onion and whole
hazelnuts, and season. Stir well, then reduce
the heat to low, cover the pan with foil or
your butter wrapper and pop the lid on.
Leave the vegetables to sweat for 15 minutes.
2 Next make the hazelnut and sage pesto.
Place a frying pan over a high heat, add
the hazelnuts and toast, shaking the pan
frequently, for 3 minutes.
3 Add the chopped sage to the extra virgin
olive oil in a small bowl.
4 Tip the toasted hazelnuts on to one half of
a clean tea-towel, then fold over the other
half of the tea-towel to cover and bash the
nuts with a rolling pin until crushed. Add the
nuts to the olive oil and sage, mix well.
5 Add the hot stock to the vegetables
and bring to the boil, then leave to cook,
uncovered, for about 15 minutes until
the vegetables are tender.
6 Transfer the soup to a blender and blend
to a smooth consistency.
7 Return the soup to the saucepan. Stir in the
cr鑝e fra頲he and place over a medium heat
for 2 minutes to warm. Serve with the pesto.

NEW

The Binding
Bridget Collins
(�. 99, BORO UGH PRESS)
Destined to be one of the biggest books of the year,
this novel is about bookbinders? yet so much more.
It?s set in a historical world where binding one?s
memories in a book enables you to harness and then
forget them. Part fantasy, part faux-history, part
heart-in-your-throat love story, it?s Eternal Sunshine
Of The Spotless Mind meets The Miniaturist, and it
still says something profound about how we?re using
social media to control our own narratives. It?ll be
the novel we?re all discussing endlessly by spring.

Forget squad goals and

and her infatuated

PHOTO: GETTY
STAGGERINGLY, IT?S 30 years since
Madonna wrestled the stadium show
from the hands of monolithic, evangelical
rockers like U2 and handed it over to the
girls and gays with Blond Ambition. That
show was the zenith of artful, sacrilegious
pop provocation. From the literal title
down, it is as if Taylor Swift: Reputation
Stadium Tour, now streaming on Netflix,
has inched back the hands of time to
undraw each stroke of Madonna?s
impeccable line in the sand. It might
as well be renamed Blond Apathy.
The art direction of Reputation is
embalmed in ?80s soft rock. Smoke
cannons flair, a Spinal Tap computergenerated viper appears, a guitarist delivers
a phallic solo from a plinth. Taylor flies
above the Dallas stadium in the viper?s
by-now shaky ribcage, then delivers an
oddly sanctimonious sermon on gossip,
one of the meticulously engineered
essences of her success. Ticker-tape rains
down. Everything is neon TV-talent-show
red, gold and black. The stage is an ?X?.
Her inter-song chatter is at the mercy
of the curse of the modern pop performer:
weightless, empty gratitude and hilarious
self-aggrandisement. She?s often redolent
of The Comeback?s Valerie Cherish, Lisa
Kudrow?s arch-satirical dissembling of
reality TV. At one point, Taylor switches
up a song about hankering after James
Dean (Style) to another hankering after
Hitting a bum
note: Taylor has
a lot to say but
reveals nothing
Romeo (Love Story). Does she know
how those stories end?
When the sting of genuine hurt touches
All Too Well and Blank Space, it is quickly
undone by some diminished squad goals
for Shake It Off. The supermodels of yore
are replaced by a guestie from Charli XCX
and Camila Cabello, one of whom is
wearing a see-through shell suit.
Taylor?s dedication to parentallyapproved mediocrity is mesmerising.
Her fans are a tear-stained congregation
of blossoming blind faith, worshipping
a deity constructed from rubbish boys,
platitudes and social media. I?d sooner
watch two hours of Taylor?s disciples
losing their shit than anything on stage.
By the show?s end we?ve learned precisely
nothing about the artist. ?I feel it?s really
important to be honest with you,? Taylor
says earnestly, before squandering the
opportunity. ?I have a cold.? She sneezes. The
audience explodes. I blame Tom Hiddleston.
Streaming now on Netflix
Golden girls
Talking of Ms Kudrow, her
amazing cameo on season
four of the brilliant Grace And
Frankie was among its multiple
highlights. The comedy, about
the two septuagenarians ( Jane
Fonda and Lily Tomlin ? we

husbands run off with one
another to get married, was
devised by Friends producer
Marta Kauffman. Her golden
touch remains absolutely intact.

inspirational role model to generations
of women through her music and movie
career, spanning three decades. And now
she?s back on the big screen, ready to
inspire us all over again, as Maya in
sure-fire box-office hit Second Act.
A hilarious feelgood comedy set in
New York, Second Act is a Working Girl for
the 21st century. J-Lo plays 40-something
Maya, who?s smart, sassy and brimming
with ideas, but stuck in a dead-end job
because she doesn?t have a college degree.
She reaches breaking point when she?s
overlooked for another promotion ?
with the job going instead to a less

But everything?s set to change when
Maya uses a fabricated CV that turns her
into a Harvard graduate ? and lands the
role of a consultant at a top cosmetics firm.
Undeterred by her lack of experience and
using her ?street smarts? instead of ?book

Co-starring Milo Ventimiglia (This Is Us)

as best friend Joan, this feelgood movie
shows anything is possible if you want it

Full of comic moments, romance and

GIVE CONTROL F RE AKS THE BOOT
I wish I?d read Is it ever OK to ask your
partner to lose weight? (14 Jan) 10 years
ago. I?d been in a relationship for two
years when, out of nowhere, my partner
dumped me by text. He later told me
it was because I?d put on weight and
he no longer found me attractive. I was
devastated. I felt worthless, ashamed and
unworthy of love. I remember going to meet him to collect
the last of my things and spending the week before starving
myself so he?d think I looked good. Looking back, the warning
signs were there. He didn?t like some of the clothes I wore and
once took off my nail polish and redid it before we met his
friends as it didn?t look ?neat enough?. It?s 10 years since that
relationship ended and it?s taken me that long to realise I didn?t
need to change anything ? except him. It?s never OK to ask
your partner to lose weight, unless their health is at risk. Karen
GIVING A VOIC E TO GRIE F
I?ve just read ?I didn?t stop
feeling like a mother just because
my baby died? (7 Jan) by the
amazing Jessica Clasby-Monk.
I?m familiar with Jessica?s blog
because my own beautiful
daughter was stillborn last
March, at 32 weeks and four
days. Stillbirth is one of
the last great taboos. It is
something that people don?t
want to acknowledge still
happens but, on average, nine
women a day in the UK are
given the devastating news
their baby has died. Charities
such as Tommy?s and Sands,
and blogs written by women
like Jessica, are lights when all
you can see is darkness. So
thank you Jessica and Grazia
for publishing an often
unheard story. Kat
GRAZIA
I learned to love being single?
(7 Jan). I?m 34. I?ve been single
for nearly eight years and am all
kinds of over the fact that even
my best friends knowingly
reassure me that ?I?ll find
someone? or I?ll change my
mind about not wanting
children ?when I meet the right
man?. Even this Christmas my
mother asked if I ever get the
chance to ?get out and meet
someone? because she?s worried
I might be lonely. Why is it
such a struggle to understand
that I like being single and
childless? It?s my relationship
with myself that?s my main
priority ? anyone else is lucky
to come a close second. Laurel

WE?VE GOT SO MUCH TIME FOR
THE WOMEN TAKING OVER THE AIRWAVES
The voices of the
nation ? it?s girl
power on the
radio from
dawn onwards
Clockwise
from far left:
Zo�, Sara,
Jo and Lauren
1946 with a male presenter (yes, really)
and the broadcaster Jane Garvey once
described Radio 2 as ?extraordinarily male?.
But, thankfully, BBC radio is seemingly
about to become extraordinarily female.
This week, Zo� Ball replaced Chris
Evans as the first woman to take on Radio
2?s Breakfast Show (21 years after achieving
the same feat on Radio 1), while Sara Cox
(who many think narrowly missed out on
the Breakfast gig) takes over the Drivetime
slot from Jo Whiley and Simon Mayo. Jo,
meanwhile, is now fronting the evening
slot on the station from 7pm (it?ll mark
her 10th anniversary at Radio 2).
And if that wasn?t enough, last week,
Lauren Laverne became the first woman
to take over the Breakfast Show on Radio
6 Music, to much excitement (?Mornings
finally make sense!? wrote Caitlin Moran
98
on Twitter). For good measure, Annie
Mac remains on Radio 1 on Monday to
Thursday evenings after becoming the
first woman to host the slot in 2015.
All of which means you could
probably get through a whole day only
hearing female voices on the radio.
Don?t mind if we do!

Since when did vitamins cost triple figures?
Sophie Qureshi investigates the latest luxury supplements?
SUPER
SUPPS!
POPPING A PILL or three with your
morning juice has become standard
practice. According to Mintel, 65% of
us now take supplements, and the UK
vitamins and supplements market is
estimated to be worth a whopping �2
million. But while vitamins were once
just something you picked up when
stocking up on tampons and toothpaste,
now a new breed of ?super supplements?
is shaking up the wellness landscape.
In just three months, supplement sales
on Net-A-Porter have gone up by 30%,
proving our willingness to invest in
pills with distinctly premium price tags
(some cost almost �0 for a three-month
supply). In fact, when one such super-supp,
Lyma, launched last year, it sold out within
two weeks, prompting a waiting list of
3,000 for the next batch. But is it really
worth spending almost as much as a
designer handbag on a pot of pills?
Or are we just swallowing the hype?
WHY SO SPENNY?
When every supermarket boasts an aisle
crammed full of supplements, and you
can easily pick up a multi-vitamin that
claims to give you everything you need
for less than a tenner, it?s reasonable to
wonder why you?d choose to pay more.
?Multi-vitamins are often comprised
of cheap, insoluble synthetic materials,
inadequate for absorption,? says Simon
White, nutritional scientist and product
development manager for the Supplement
Factory, which produces supplements for
all sorts of brands, from high-street to
high-end. ?Most multi-vitamin ingredients
are non-bioavailable, which means they?re
unlikely to be absorbed from the gut into
the systemic circulation, so they?re pretty
pointless. The body is much better placed
to absorb natural food source ingredients,
rather than synthetic equivalents. After all,
our digestive system creates enzymes and
acids to specifically extract the goodness
73
????? ??????????? ?????? "What's News" VK.COM/WSNWS
THE
SUPPLEMENTS
YOU NEED
DEPEND ON
GENETICS
of food, rather than synthetic materials.?
Now that might seem like an argument
for swerving supplements altogether and
relying solely on your diet to get the
nutrients you need. ?If you have good
nutrition, you don?t need supplements,?
agrees Dr Paul Clayton, pharmaconutritional expert and fellow at Oxford
University. ?We endured for millions of
years without them. But you?d need to
eat only unprocessed foods and eat 3,000
calories of them a day in order to give
your body all the nutrients it needs to
function.? And let?s face it, how many of
us do that? ?In Britain, more than half the
calories we eat come from ultra-processed
foods ? foods very high in calories but
with almost no nutritional value at all.
It?s a nutritional nightmare.?
W H AT S U P P ?
So unless your diet is bang on point (and if
it is, we salute you), supplementing makes
some sense. Just remember the clue is in
the name: supplements should always be
?supplementary? to a healthy diet. Popping
pills doesn?t give you a free pass to skimp
on your five-a-day (which, incidentally,
should be more like 10-a-day). But with
so many brands pushing different pills and
powders, how do you know which ones
are worth a pop? ?It?s very difficult,? admits
Dr Clayton. ?The industry is misleading
and lacks robust regulation. The products
often don?t live up to their claims ? 90%
of them are unproven and unvalidated.?
White agrees: ?The best thing you can
do is to educate yourself and do your
research. Look for supplements with ?food
source? ingredients ? they tend to be
better than synthetic ones because the
body is more likely to be able to assimilate
them. Branded ingredients that are
patented also tend to be a better bet,
because there is likely to be clinical data
behind them.? Lyma, for example, uses
seven patented ingredients with over 200
clinical trials to support their effectiveness.
While lots of supplements contain
turmeric for its anti-inflammatory
properties, the active compound in
turmeric, cucurmin, has very poor
bioavailability (only around 40%), even
though it?s natural. Lyma contains a
patented form called HydroCurc, which
has been technologically enhanced to
make it almost 100% bioavailable. That
kind of technology is why a month?s supply
of Lyma will set you back �9. But don?t
assume that a hefty price tag always means
you?re getting the good stuff. ?Sometimes
you?re just paying for the brand and
packaging, so you do need to scrutinise
the actual ingredients,? says White.
YO U R P I L L
PRESCRIPTION
Every office seems to have at least one
staffer with so many pots of pills on her
desk, it?s a wonder she doesn?t rattle when
she walks. But since most of us don?t want
to take 10 pills every morning, how do
you know which nutrients you actually
need? ?No two people are the same ?
the supplements you need depend on
your genetic requirement for various
micronutrients, phytonutrients, healthy
fats and proteins,? says White. ?External
factors come into it, too ? pollution, stress,
sleep, and exercise all play a role in which
nutrients are most relevant.?
In the future, it will become standard
for supplements to offer us personalised
nutrition based on our DNA. ?Certain
genes are coded towards particular
diseases, like diabetes, high blood pressure
and cancers,? says White. ?The idea is that
from looking at someone?s DNA, you can
create a targeted nutritional strategy, with
supplements specifically tailored to their
genetic predisposition.?
We?re already starting to see this
emerging ? VITL (vitl.com) offers a
DNA Nutrition Test, �9, which involves
a simple saliva swab you take at home.
Following analysis, you?re sent a detailed
report on your genetic traits, with
personalised nutritional recommendations
to work with your body.
But according to White, a basic blood
test can be more useful to work out what
supplements you need. ?Your DNA doesn?t
tell you about your current nutritional
status, whereas simple blood and urine
tests can give you a full breakdown of your
vitamin and mineral levels.? VITL also
offers this with its Vitamin Blood Test,
�.95, or try Genova Diagnostics (gdx.
net) who offer a range of tests to identify
nutritional deficiencies, as well as genomic
profiling if you want to go the whole hog.

lands on the Grazia beauty desk pretty
much every day of the week. But what?s
really interesting in the scent-o-sphere
right now is not so much the notes
themselves, but the new ways to wear them.
Once upon a time, spritzing from a bottle
was the only way to get your fragrance fix.
But now the perfume industry is waking up
to the fact that modern lifestyles demand
more options (anyone who?s endured the
trauma of having their beloved eau de
parfum smash in their handbag or get
confiscated by airport security will know
what we?re talking about). It all kicked
off last year, when fragrance doyenne
Jo Malone launched the inspired Jo Loves
Fragrance Paintbrush, �, and Byredo
unveiled its Kabuki Fragrances, � ?
micro-fine perfumed powders, housed
in a retractable brush. Now other brands
are ?thinking outside the bottle?, with
a crop of super-cool innovations that
push the fragrance frontiers?
PEN PALS
Perfume pens were last year?s biggest
fragrance craze, and they?re ideal for
scenting on-the-go. Simply scribble on
to your ?perfume points? (any areas that
generate heat, although avoid behind the
ear as the skin there produces a lot of
sebum, which distorts scent). Mugler?s
Perfuming Pens, �, which look like
jumbo crayons and come in three
fragrances (Angel, Aura and Alien), sold
out at The Perfume Shop less than a month
after launch. They?re now back in stock but
are limited edition, so don?t hang about.
You?ll need to be equally speedy to snap
up YSL?s Black Opium Click & Go Eau
de Parfum, � ? a glittery version of the
iconic Touche 蒫lat pen, which houses 200
applications of the bewitching coffee- and
vanilla-laced scent. For any tweens in your
life, Scent Republik?s slightly less spenny
Scent Stiks, � make an excellent pressie
that?s easy to sneak into school for fragrant
doodling. Where were these when we had
to get through double maths?
DAB HAND
Fragrance ?dabbers? follow similar principles
to perfume pens, only they look more like
old-school stain removers, with a mesh
applicator you dab to apply the scent. We
dig the utilitarian feel of Urban Outfitters?
Fragrance Dabbers, $14, which come in
four sophisticated scents that defy their
modest price tags (our favourite is Juniper
Palm, an unusual mix of melon, green tea
leaf and driftwood). They?re currently only
available in the US, so make a note to stock
up next time you?re stateside. ways to smel
WE KID YOU NOT, a new fragrance

WORDS SOPHIE Q URESHI
????? ??????????? ?????? "What's News" VK.COM/WSNWS
We?ve long been ardent fans of oil
fragrances ? particularly Le Labo?s Perfume
Oils, �2, which come with a pipette and
can be used anywhere from pulse points to
hair (a single drop of Th� Noir 29 massaged
through your locks lingers ALL day). So
we?re excited that oils are definitely having
a moment right now. Hot new brand-towatch Ostens has created a line of five
Pr閜arations, from � ? single raw material
oils designed to be worn alone or layered
beneath your fragrance. Each contains the
highest permitted concentration of one
chosen ingredient (rose, vetiver, cashmeran,
jasmine, patchouli and cedarwood) and
they?re divine. Also well worth a sniff is the
new Narciso For Her Oil Musc Parfum, �
? a reissue of the iconic oil that launched
15 years ago and devastated fans when it
was discontinued. As with all perfume
oils, the scent stays closer to the skin than
a traditional alcohol-based fragrance,
which makes it infinitely sexier.
CUSHY JOB
Cushion compacts may have moved into
the make-up mainstream, but they?re fast
becoming the chicest way to scent skin
too. Chanel totally stole our hearts (and
our ) with its covetable Chance Eau
Tendre Delicate Fragrance Touch-Up,
�, while Kenzo?s Flower By Kenzo Le
Cushion, �.50, distils the notes of the
signature scent into a ?perfumed jelly?
that feels sublimely refreshing when
patted on to pulse points. The real beauty
of these is they allow you to scent yourself
subtly on the train or bus, without
squirting fellow commuters in the eye.
Plus, the mirrored compacts mean you
can touch up your lipstick/check your
teeth for seeds at the same time.
MAGIC INK
If you like the idea of a tattoo but have
never quite plucked up the courage, Amkiri
Fragrance Ink offers an appealing alternative,
without the pain or lifelong commitment.
Billed as the world?s first ?visual fragrance?,
it turns scent into a multi-sensory art-form,
with an ink-like liquid that you apply using
a fine-tipped brush (or a stencil or stamp,
for the not-so-steady of hand). Once you
have created your design, the ink diffuses a
fragrance that lasts for up to 12 hours ? and
no, it won?t run if you take a spin class or
get caught in the rain. It will be available
to buy in the next couple of months ? sign
up at amkiri.com to be the first to try it.

The anti-ageing CC cream to suit your complexion all year round
OLIVIA VON HALLE
DESIGNER
EST蒃 LAUDER REVITALIZING
SUPREME GLOBAL ANTI-AGING
CC CREME SPF10, �
I love the power of make-up and how it
can transform how I look and feel. Even
if I?ve had an awful night?s sleep, I can still
feel good with a bit of coverage. Which is
exactly what Est閑 Lauder?s Revitalizing
Supreme Global Anti-Aging CC Creme
SPF10 does ? it reflects the person I am
on the inside, on the outside.
When you first squeeze it out of the
tube, you question how it?s going to look
on your skin, as it has a slight greyish tint.
But as soon as you blend it in, the colour
changes and cleverly adapts to your skin
tone. The best part? I don?t have to scour
high and low for different foundations to
match my skin throughout the changing
seasons. Regardless of whether I?ve had
too much sun or hibernated for winter,
this tube of joy will match my complexion.
I like to warm it on the back of my
hand before applying with my fingertips.
For such a lightweight cream, it does a
brilliant job of hiding any imperfections
and smoothing the texture of my skin,
leaving it looking luminous and radiant
all day long. The finished result is my
skin, but better.

The tummytaming leggings

Leggings, �, mostly

supportive

stomach in.
Ignore the gym peacocks ? the
ones who perform a ?move? and
then strut around the room hoping
to catch people?s attention. They are
far more interested in themselves
then looking at you. Fact.
O Ask for advice. Don?t ever enter
a gym and use the equipment
before having an induction or
you?ll risk injury. Exercise or gym
instructors generally have great
people skills so don?t be afraid
to ask questions, even if it?s,
?How do I target my back fat??
O There are a million ways to
move ? ballet, Zumba, aerial
yoga, running, walking, netball,
boxing, climbing, stretching,
Pilates, hockey, swimming...
Hell, you can take up bowling.
O Rope in a buddy ? or maybe
don?t. Working out with a friend
helps for some, but I like exercising
on my own for the headspace and
time away from anyone shouting
O
?Mummy, I?m HUNGRY? 24/7.
O Remember, everybody started
somewhere, even the person
performing the one-handed
handstand push-up. They might
have been sat on their sofa a year ag
O Get a good playlist ? this will
distract you and mentally chee
you on. Headphones are also
a bit of a human shield if you
don?t want that annoying person
to chat to you in the gym.
O Stop overthinking exercise.
Don?t worry about the people
around you, whether you?ll get
thirsty or hungry or whether it will
hurt. My mantra is ?Matter over
Mind? not ?Mind over Matter?.
You need to focus on what you?re
doing (a form of mindfulness),
not what you?re thinking.
O Still scared? If all else fails,
imagine everybody jigging
about naked. Works a treat.

half my friends exercise
regularly and the other half
hibernate at the very mention of
the word ?workout?. Very few have
ever set foot in a gym. When I ask
what they?re scared of, the most
common replies are: ?I don?t want to
