THINGS TO REMEMBER THIS CHRISTMAS
+ Don’t get Insta-envy of other people’s
Christmases: there’s probably a pile of washing
up and a boring uncle monologuing about
broadband prices just out of shot.
+ Keep things in perspective: if you burn the turkey,
who cares? The only people you’re ruining
Christmas for are obliged to love you anyway.
+ New Year’s resolutions aren’t set in stone: if you
break yours on 2 January, don’t beat yourself up.
It just means it was never meant to be.
+ Most importantly, if you can, give generously to
those less fortunate than you. Our charity appeal is
about the huge number of people in Britain
spending this Christmas in poverty (see page 44).

wondered out loud if Elf’s Buddy the Elf
might be rather too fond of imposing a
‘hug culture’ on all those he encounters
(if you know what I mean)… Guess what?
I was taking the p***. I’ve demonstrated
no interest in where one might acquire
good vegan canapés; when acquaintances
say things like: ‘I’m one of those people
who just loves to spoil my friends and
fam with, like, mountains of pressies?
But this year, I’ve realised less is more,
because the greatest gift of all is gifting
the planet with less landfill?’ it is all I can
do to not punch them in the face.
So I’m probably not all that ready for
Woke Christmas after all. But that’s OK.
Honestly, I have misgivings about woke,
one of them being: at what point did
woke stop meaning (as it originally did)
the enlightenment of black people to
centuries of ongoing oppression and
become, instead, shorthand for the many
complicated ways middle-class people
find to feel guilty? When did woke
become an exercise in self-flagellation for
anyone with time to kill between Pilates
and brunch? Why did weaponising it
seem like a good idea; using your allegedly
superior ethical lifestyle choices as sticks
with which to beat those who don’t do the
things you do – or who don’t not do the
things you won’t (like wrapping)? And
finally: where exactly do the woke get off,
assuming they’re the only ones who care?
I kind of assumed we all did. I kind of
assumed that was a given.

the moral code of our age: political

right, and anyone who isn’t with them

I am – but only by accident. Apparently,
the woke-iest thing a gal can do this
Christmas is not wrap gifts. Which, I don’t!
In Woke Christmas world, non-wrapped
presents = good, because although you’re
denied the chance to see joyful surprise
light up your rellies’ little faces as they rip
paper off whatever delicieuse tokenette
you’ve bestowed upon them[1], you’re
also avoiding paper waste. In my world,
non-wrapped presents = a faintly
shamefaced consequence of me being
generally lazy and incompetent. But this
year, apparently, they’ll make me woke!
I let myself down in all other Woke
Christmas respects, mind. I haven’t been

As Meghan Markle prepares to spend
her first official royal Christmas at
Sandringham, Katie Nicholl gives
the inside story on how the royal
family are tackling those rift rumours
– and what the Duke and Duchess
of Sussex have in store for 2019…
Harry and
Meghan’s
Christmas card
features this
image, taken at
their wedding
reception
TO SAY IT’S been an eventful year for the
Duchess of Sussex is an understatement.
After the royal wedding, there was her first
overseas tour to Australia and New Zealand
in October alongside Prince Harry. A
month earlier, she’d launched her debut
charity initiative Together, a cookbook
released to raise funds for victims of the
Grenfell tragedy. And who can forget the
couple’s pregnancy announcement? So it
came as no surprise that last week Meghan
was shortlisted for Time magazine’s ‘Person
of the Year’, just after being crowned the
most Googled woman of 2018.
In the 12 months that has seen Meghan
become a fully-fledged royal, she’s been
described as a royal rule-breaker, a gamechanger, a feminist princess, a
revolutionary and then, more recently,
a ‘difficult’ duchess. It’s proof that a lot can
happen in a year. This time last year, Harry
and Meghan had only just announced their
engagement. The former Suits actress
was preparing to attend her first family
occasion with her new in-laws: staying
at Anmer Hall, William and Kate’s
Norfolk home, and attending a few
royal engagements.
At the Christmas Day church service
(where Harry had to remind Meghan to
curtsey in front of the Queen), it seemed a
new and exciting era for the monarchy was
beginning. As Meghan, Harry, Kate and
William casually walked to church
together laughing and joking, it prompted
the media to coin the phrase ‘the Fab Four’.
But as the public now know, behind
palace walls it hasn’t all been plain sailing.
Multiple royal sources have revealed that
there have been rifts and tensions between
the four – as well as the Kensington Palace
officials who counsel them.
So as the royal couples prepare to join
the Queen again (William and Kate
are believed to have changed their plans
to spend the Christmas break at the
Middletons to stem headlines about a
feud), what can we expect? WHY MEGHAN MARKLE’S BEEN THE MOST

According to royal insiders, the palace
courtiers – who have been firefighting
stories of tension for weeks – say the
festive photo opportunity ‘could not come
at a better time’. It will be the first time the
Fab Four have been seen in public together
since the Remembrance commemorations
in November, when Kate and Meghan
were placed on separate balconies. ‘All four
royals are keen to put on a show of unity,’
said a source. That’s perhaps because,
according to another insider, there’s been
an intervention behind the scenes. ‘There’s
talk at the palace that Charles has had a
word with his sons to try and sort out the
tensions,’ said the source. According to
previous reports, Charles was also forced
to ‘step in’ ahead of the wedding, when
Harry and William were said to have fallen
out when Harry accused his brother of ‘not
rolling out the red carpet’ for Meghan.
As Grazia went to press, it was not
known whether Meghan and Harry were
due to stay at Anmer or Sandringham. In
any case, Meghan will have the support of
senior royals. Grazia understands that
Prince Charles has been a ‘pillar of
support’ while the Queen has been ‘fully
supportive’. In a show of genuine warmth,
the monarch has extended an invitation to
Meghan’s LA-based mother, Doria
Ragland, to join the family for Christmas.
‘Meghan is used to an American
Christmas, which lasts for just one day, so
the festivities at Sandringham with all the
immediate members of the royal family are
very different for her,’ says royal author
Ingrid Seward. ‘She has never experienced
the present opening on Christmas Eve
or the traditional Boxing Day shoot as
last year she was staying at Anmer Hall
with William and Kate and only went to
Sandringham for lunch.’

Keller her award
When growing up in LA, Meghan
would join her parents taking turkeys to
homeless shelters in Skid Row, as well as
volunteering in soup kitchens. At home,
meanwhile, she enjoyed casual Christmases
making her signature Almond Milk Spiced
Holiday Cocktails. The rigorous routine
at Sandringham will be quite a contrast.
‘There is a strict arrival time with the
royals coming from 9am on Christmas Eve
in order of precedence,’ adds Ingrid, before
the family sit down for a celebratory meal.
‘After dinner the family open presents
which will have been laid out on trestle
tables. Meghan will have been advised
to buy small gifts, or even home-made
presents as expensive gifts are considered
gauche by the Queen.’ Such a task will
no doubt come easily to Meghan, who
famously presented home-baked banana
bread on the second day of the Australia
tour, when she visited a farm.
Harry and Meghan’s private secretary,
Samantha Cohen, who will be stepping
down from the post next year, has made
sure that Meghan is familiar with all
the dos and don’ts. ‘Sam is a safe pair of
hands and will make sure Meghan knows
everything she will need to do and what
to pack,’ says a royal source. ‘It’s easy to get
caught out at Sandringham if you’re new
to it. For example, there’s a very short
turnaround before pre-dinner drinks on
Christmas Eve. The Queen is very quick
at getting ready and doesn’t like to be
kept waiting so you have to be swift and be
able to bathe, dress and do your make-up
in about 30 minutes.’
Cherry brandy and cider from the estate
are offered to guests before dinner when
champagne is served. And no one goes to
bed until Her Majesty has retired. After
church on Christmas morning, they return
to the house for Christmas lunch.
Meghan has already started planning
her wardrobe. Grazia understands she has
commissioned a striking maternity gown
for the black-tie occasion, and she will
require up to five outfit changes a day
and several hat options for church on
Christmas Day.
It’s believed that William and Kate will
leave Sandringham at some point over
the festivities to visit the Middletons in
Berkshire. Harry and Meghan meanwhile
are said to be seeing in the New Year at
their Cotswolds farm.
One thing is for sure, as the Duke and
Duchess of Sussex go into 2019, there will
be lots of changes. Following the recent
news that they’re leaving Kensington
Palace for Frogmore Cottage in Windsor,
Harry and Meghan have made it clear they
want to strike out on their own. ‘Harry has
a new confidence now that he has Meghan
in his life,’ said a friend. ‘He wants to do his
own thing now and be his own person.’
Nestled in the grounds of Windsor
Home Park, Frogmore is currently being
converted from staff quarters into a
five-room family home with an annex
for Doria, along with a yoga studio.
Preparations have also begun for the arrival
of their first baby: Meghan is said to be

looking at a having a home birth and
studying hypnobirthing. But the duchess
has also told courtiers she wants to work
as close to her due date as possible.
Already, Meghan has had a number
of private meetings with charities and
organisations including the Royal Variety
Charity, and CAMFED, the Campaign
for Female Education. It is expected that
she will also announce at least one
patronage in the new year.
‘Every six months, Harry and Meghan
go through their diaries,’ said a royal
insider. ‘Meghan is expected to be on
maternity leave for a fair amount of time.
But it’s believed they will do another big
tour in autumn 2019, which will probably
be to America or Canada.’
But will next year bring as many
explosive headlines? Watch this space.
It was the kind of fantasy fashion coup
that would make Anna Wintour (or at
least her Devil Wears Prada alter ego)
spit with envy. When the Duchess of
Sussex emerged on stage at the Fashion
Awards to present Clare Waight Keller,
the designer behind her Givenchy
wedding gown, with her British
Designer of the Year Award, it wasn’t
just the jaded fashion audience that
were gobsmacked. As Clare said
backstage, it was ‘a complete and
genuine surprise’.
‘I mean, honestly, I really did not
know if she was even coming tonight at
all,’ said the designer. ‘I was fitting her
for the dress last week,’ she revealed
of the duchess’s one-shoulder, bumphugging, black velvet column, ‘And she
said, “Oh, I’m going to this thing next
week, I think it’s Monday or Tuesday
night,” and I didn’t think anything of it.’
In terms of fashion triumphs, 2018
belongs to Clare Waight Keller, having
created the wedding dress of the year,
followed by numerous Givenchy
ensembles – each one worn on the
global stage and witnessed by millions.
‘I’ve had the most extraordinary year.
It’s been so special to work with
someone who’s just so incredibly
genuine and kind.’
Judging by the warmth with which
they hugged one another, there seemed
to be no question that this could be a
life-long fashion collaboration. ‘This
woman is so amazing. I got to know
Meghan on such a personal level. To
have someone like that trust you on
such an incredible moment in their
life is the most unbelievable honour...
I can’t thank you enough,’ said the
designer on stage. Afterwards, she
added: ‘We’ve got an innate
understanding. Going through a massive
experience like the wedding dress, you
can never lose that connection.’

Faye on her travels
‘WOMEN MUST NOT NOW BE TOO
Last week, the father of murdered
British backpacker Grace Millane
said he hoped her tragic death
wouldn’t stop women from
travelling the world alone.
Faye White agrees with him…
LIKE GRACE, I went
backpacking by myself as a
22-year-old study-abroad
student in Australia. It was
three years ago when I packed
my Lowe Alpine rucksack and headed up
the East Coast. Even though I’d never even
had a meal in a restaurant on my own, this
felt like an opportunity to prove to myself
I was capable of holding my own hand as I
embarked on a two-week solo trip.
The penultimate stop was a two-night
stay on Fraser Island, a popular backpacker
destination off the coast of Queensland.
Thrown together in a group with seven
other backpackers, we headed there along
with a couple of tour guides. The guides
warned us of the main dangers – sharks,
snakes, spiders, jellyfish and dingoes – but
I never considered the possibility of being
attacked by a human.
On the second night, I was raped by
one of the tour guides in my sleep. I woke
up while I was being attacked, froze and
couldn’t speak, but when he stopped,
20
confused, I confronted him. He just said:
‘Shhh, I drank too much last night,’ and
rolled over to face away from me. I went
back to sleep, and when I woke the next
morning, he was gone.
I spent the following day hiding in my
hostel room trying to piece together what
had happened, as the man who raped me
enjoyed drinks at the bar with the other
backpackers. When I confided in the
group about what had happened, most
of them laughed and did not believe me.
I decided to abandon the remainder
of my trip and return to Melbourne, where
I went to the police. Sadly, they and a
barrister advised me that even if the case
did make it to court, it would be unlikely
I would win due to a lack of evidence. I
also told my parents, which was the most
difficult conversation I’ve ever had to have.
I was so worried about upsetting them
that I initially told my mum by text.
But, two months after the attack, I
boarded a plane to New Zealand alone
and went backpacking again. I knew that
if I didn’t, I would never feel safe on my
own. Later that year, I returned to the
East Coast of Australia alone to complete
the last leg of my trip. It was important
for me to reclaim the space and to once
again prove to myself that I did not need
anyone to hold my hand.
Fighting back tears at a press conference
last week, New Zealand’s Prime Minister,
Jacinda Ardern, apologised on behalf of her
country. Addressing Grace’s parents, she
said: ‘Your daughter should have been safe
here, and she wasn’t, and I’m sorry for that.’
And she is right, Grace should have been
safe, but her untimely death is a reminder
that the world remains an unsafe place for
women. However, as research by the Office
For National Statistics has revealed, the
vast majority of female adult victims of
homicide were killed by a partner or
someone who is known to them, as
opposed to the 9% murdered by a stranger.
So, like her dad, I hope Grace’s story
doesn’t discourage girls from travelling
alone. Historically, women have been
unable to explore so much of the world for
so long, with limited access to education,
travel and freedom of speech. We need
to take up space around the world and
explore it unaccompanied and without
fear. Being a female solo traveller did
not kill Grace – a human did.

SURE, YOU HAVEN’T even got
through your Christmas shopping yet, but
the sales have officially started. And yet,
sales shopping is far from straightforward.
In fact, after several balls-ups, I swerved
them entirely for a few years, terrified that
I’d be left hiding (from both the world and

But really, who hasn’t been there?
Buoyed up with your Christmas spends,
all those brands you’ve coveted misty-eyed
from afar are suddenly within reach and,
before you know it, a lime-green sweater
is moulting all over your armchair.
The secret truth is that no one is
immune to the words ‘Balenciaga half off ’,
even those of us who have turned shopping
into a living. However, this season, it’s
time to conquer the discounts, and buy
things you’ll wear for many years to
come. Here’s how…

The drip, drip effect of consuming
thousands of images of fashion
trends on social media is that
you can be subliminally influenced
into buying looks that really aren’t
you. On occasion, this can be
great – everyone needs to get out
of their comfort zone (or style rut)
sometimes. But the sales are a
charged environment where your
sense of self easily goes AWOL.
So it’s probably not the time to
be experimenting with high-end
cycling shorts.
However, perennials, such as the
current trends for tartan, checked
macs and brown boots, for example,
are a different kettle, because you
know they’ll last for more than just
one Instagram post.

Every sales guide since kingdom
come has warned us against the
perils of buying too-tight dresses and
squeezing our Ugly Sister feet into
glass slippers. We get it – don’t buy
something that doesn’t fit, because
you will never ever wear it no matter
how bargainous it may be.
But what about when it does fit?
Fits like a glove? In this instance,
it’s dangerously easy to convince
yourself you ‘need’ said item, even
if you don’t love the colour and have
zero occasions to wear it. Be clear
about your fashion requirements
(the Western boot trend is still going
strong – or plan ahead and snap
up summer sandals) and never be
swayed by the number on the label.

Picking up pieces that you can’t w
for three months may not seem l
savvy advice. But buying heavy c
in spring and sandals in Decemb
has served me well over the years.
Discounts are priced seasonally
– with the belief that people are
more likely to buy things they can
wear now. Meaning summer holiday
aples are going to be much cheaper
the Boxing Day sales than at any
er time of the year. Yes, it’s
elayed retail gratification, but
there’s nothing more satisfying than
that first day of summer in your
box-fresh Chloé slip-ons, which

It’s an incredible phenomenon: the
moment I set foot in a shop where
a sale is on, I immediately think I’m
at least 19 times richer than I am.
Numbers stop registering with my
reality… ‘down to £790. What
a bargain! I must have it for that
charity gala.’ But really that is rent.
For a month. Or a decent sofa.
And I don’t go to charity galas.
Either way, I can’t afford it.
Set yourself a budget and write
it on your hand if needs be. Equally,
make sure your bargain is a bargain.

This is a solid tactic for ensuring you
score a sales win. If you’ve worn
a high-street buy to death, it’s an
indication that the piece is essential
to your wardrobe and warrants
deeper investment. I’ve bought items
‘inspired’ by, ahem, designer duds,
then ended up getting the real deal
a few months later in the sales, when
I realised how much I was wearing
them. The sales are a great way to
elevate your wardrobe, but start
with what you know works for you.

JULIA ROBERTS IS now the latest
’90s mega-star to be enjoying a surprise
revival. Receiving rapturous acclaim for
her performances in Oscar-bait drama
Ben Is Back and Amazon’s edgy TV thriller
Homecoming, America’s Sweetheart is
being reborn this awards season.
But Grazia understands that the shift in
Julia’s image has an intriguing provenance.
Contrary to the seemingly effortless
transformation, Hollywood insiders
say that, with the help of secret advisers
– including niece Emma Roberts and
close friend Ellen DeGeneres – the Pretty
Woman star has been actively working
to reframe the public perception of
her during the last year.
‘Julia has always been frustrated with
being known as a Hollywood diva, along
with all the negative attention about her
personal life,’ said the insider. ‘This next
chapter of her career has seen her step away
from the romantic comedies she’s known
for and change public opinion of her.’

WORDS: GEORGE STARK AND LAURA ANTONIA JORDAN.

NOTTING HILL
Indeed, Julia has always been something
of a contradiction. That mega-watt smile
– and equally dazzling box office results
– made her one of the most famous and
highest-paid stars of her generation. But
her I Love Trouble co-star Nick Nolte
once publicly called her ‘not a nice person’,
while she also earned the nickname
‘Tinkerhell’ on the set of Steven Spielberg’s
Hook in the early ’90s. In her own words,
Julia admitted last year that she used to be
a ‘selfish little brat’ in her heyday, before
she met her husband of 16 years,
cameraman Danny Moder.
Even her marriage to Danny – with
whom she has three children, 14-year-old
twins Hazel and Phinnaeus and Henry,
11 – began with controversy. When the
couple first started dating in 2001, Danny
was still married to make-up artist Vera
Steimberg. Around this time, Julia was
photographed wearing a homemade
T-shirt that said ‘A Low Vera’ – which
some thought was a dig at her lover’s wife.
Our insider reveals: ‘This second wave
of her career is about repairing a lot of
the damage that’s been done over the years.
Ellen, who successfully rebuilt her own
brand and career, has been advising Julia to
be more self-effacing and fun in interviews,
while her niece Emma is her go-to Instagram
guru, telling her what not to post and what
is considered relatable content.’
Joining Instagram in June this year, Julia
has charmed 3.8 million followers and
counting with her down-to-earth posts,
including make-up free selfies and hilarious
fake Boomerang videos, coined ‘faux boom
Fridays’. Her bio simply reads ‘human’.
‘Julia is in a much happier and more
relaxed place right now,’ adds the insider.
‘She has wanted that to shine through.’
THE MEXICAN
Right: Julia
as Heidi in
the acclaimed
Homecoming
Julia Roberts is the kind of movie
star who looks like she was made
for the red carpet (the vintage
Valentino gown she wore to
collect her Best Actress Oscar
for Erin Brockovich in 2001 is
particularly memorable).
Right now, however, it’s her
past screen appearances that have
got us particularly excited. With
fashion’s insatiable appetite for
nostalgia – particularly of the ’90s
and noughties variety – Julia’s
defining big screen moments feel
like, well, fashion moments too.
Take her breakout role, as
‘hooker-with-a-heart-of-gold’
Vivian in Pretty Woman; the
brown-and-white polka-dot dress
she wears to the polo feels very
Alessandra Rich. Then there’s
Mystic Pizza’s cocktail dress
which, thanks to its oversized
bow, is very S/S ’19. Notting Hill,
meanwhile, will have you
searching for a beret and tailored
black jacket. And how about
2001’s The Mexican? In her cardi,
flippy skirt, double anklets and
flip-flops, Julia looks every inch
the Copenhagen street-style star.
So if you’re in the mood to
prep your 2019 style mood
board, we suggest you binge
on Julia’s back catalogue this
Christmas. Just call it ‘research’.

The four-year civil war has now left
tens of thousands dead and millions
on the brink of starvation, while
orphaned children wander the streets.
Anna Silverman reports
IN THE STREETS of Hodeidah
in Yemen, children not much older
than toddlers walk around with babies
balanced on their hips, their parents either
murdered or incapacitated by disease.
They offer to clean cars in exchange for
food or money. At night, they find an
alley to curl up in, alongside dead bodies.
This apocalyptic scene is the everyday
reality in Yemen, where a civil war has
devastated the country for nearly four
years. Last week, the warring factions
agreed a ceasefire for Hodeidah – the port
city that is a lifeline for two-thirds of the
country – and the UN secretary general,
Antonio Guterres, said he hoped this
would be the starting point to the end of
the war. But it is already too late for many
of those caught up in the world’s worst
humanitarian crisis ever. Tens of thousands
have been killed and 14 million have been
pushed to the brink of starvation. Over 22
million people desperately need our help.
Many are being killed by air strikes as
a Saudi-led coalition fights Houthi
opposition. Millions more suffer as the
attacks cut off access to food, medicine and
clean water. Over a million people have
suffered from the worst cholera outbreak
in modern history, and the country is on
the brink of the worst famine in 100 years.
Rose Ochielg, 45, a nurse with the
International Committee Red Cross, has
been in Yemen for 18 months. She’s seen the
situation worsen by the day. ‘I’ve seen a rise
in outbreaks of diseases and malnourished
babies,’ she says. One mother tried to bring
her five-year-old son to her clinic in Dhale
but couldn’t make the journey for days.
The boy had malaria and was severely
malnourished. Eventually, someone gave
them a lift on a motorbike. ‘He died the
moment he was carried in,’ Rose adds.
‘Other children have passed away as soon
as their parents get them here. I’m a mother

THE WORLD’S WORST
H U M A N I TA R I A N C R I S I S
– WE MUST ACT NOW
and I can’t bear hearing the
mothers cry, “Why, why, what
did we do to deserve this?”’
In October, the dire situation
was summed up by a shocking
picture of an emaciated girl on
the front page of The New York
Times. The newspaper said the
images ‘may be as unsettling as
anything we have used before’, but they
wanted to print them as ‘this is our job
as journalists… to give voice to those who
are otherwise abandoned, victimised and
forgotten’. The photo of seven-year-old
Amal Hussain lying motionless on a
hospital bed brought the human cost
of the catastrophe into focus. Tragically,
she died a few days later – and, while
her picture triggered an impassioned
response, it didn’t deliver change.
Beilqes Alzawm, 34, is from Yemen and
was lucky to get out when she did. She and
her son moved to London in 2014, when
Beilqes got a job as a human rights policy
adviser and advocacy. A few months after
she left, war broke out. Most of her family
are still there. She feels enormous pain and
guilt listening to their suffering. ‘I speak to
my sister on the phone and ask, “What can
I do? Let me send money.” She says, “Why
send money? Where will we buy food?
There are no shops any more. We need
food and medicine urgently to survive.”’
Beilqes’ family’s four-storey house was
destroyed after armed groups seized it and
used it as a hideout. Everybody has lost
their jobs and food and water are almost
impossible to come by. ‘My sister tells me

people are walking around screaming with
hysteria. Her teenage daughter wakes up
screaming in the night and the children wet
themselves. My family is hardly surviving.’
The children who are not begging are
draped in guns as armed forces recruit
child soldiers. Meanwhile, Beilqes feels
isolated here. ‘I can’t tell my family I am
sitting safely in my garden or choosing
a meal in the supermarket when they are
walking for two days to find oil to cook
with, and they are starving.’
Virtually the entire country has been
affected by the conflict and humanitarian
aid is vital. Red Cross are on the ground
now providing people with food, clean
water and access to healthcare.
Lorraine Marulanda of the British
Red Cross says, ‘Yemen is the world’s
single largest humanitarian
crisis. But let us be clear,
humanitarian solutions are
no longer enough to save
Yemen. In the long-term,
Yemen needs sustainable
political solutions to end this
conflict and tragic suffering.’
Rose has been trying to
provide as many pregnant
women as she can with sterile
home-birthing kits. ‘I look at a child and I
don’t know what to say to them any more,’
she says. ‘They’ve been through so much.
I asked one eight-year-old boy if he would
like a toy. He told me he wants a gun so
he can protect his mother.’
Meanwhile, Beilqes watches the news and
doesn’t recognise the country she grew up
in. ‘I used to walk the peaceful streets safely
without my head covered.’ She studied
political science at university and came from
a family that valued women’s education.
Now, her family has been forced to become
more regressive. Her uncle has stopped his
daughters from going to school. ‘Watching
my people suffer is unbearable. I long to be
with them again one day,’ she says.

IN THE WEEK Margot Robbie received
a Screen Actors Guild nomination, the star
made a surprise confession; she still suffers
from imposter syndrome.
‘The week leading up to playing any
character, I have a huge crisis of faith,’ she
said. ‘I convince myself I’m a terrible actor
and I’ll never pull it off. I always think:
“I’m not even any good at this.”’
This is the same woman who received
widespread acclaim for The Wolf Of Wall
Street and I, Tonya (for which she received
an Oscar nomination for Best Actress),
and is now starring alongside Saoirse
Ronan in the highly-anticipated Mary,
Queen Of Scots.
Speaking at a Screen Actors Guild event
last week in the US, she added that her
Margot plays
Queen Elizabeth 1
husband Tom Ackerley, with whom she
runs her production company, Lucky
Chap, is ‘very patient’ with her, revealing
that every time she questions her acting
ability, he says, ‘OK, you know you say this
every time.’ But after getting ‘hysterical’,
and saying, ‘It feels different, this is the
time,’ she relaxes once filming begins. ‘After
the first day on set I calm down and he’s
like “told you,” she revealed. ‘He’s so calm
and understanding. I’m… not.’
Still, Margot confided that she
sometimes felt insecure on the set of
Mary Queen Of Scots. ‘Every time I saw
Saoirse be amazing, I’d think “Holy shit,
I need to lift my game.” She would say, “I
don’t know this scene yet,” but then she’d
be off, no script, Scottish accent, speaking
perfect French and I’m trundling along
behind her in awe.’
The Australian actor previously told
the BBC that she thought, ‘she wasn’t
the right actress for the film,’ as she didn’t
have a degree and she isn’t classically
trained. ‘I thought I was the wrong actress
for this; I’m the wrong actress to play a
queen,’ she said. But director Josie Rourke
convinced her otherwise, telling her, ‘I
don’t want you to play a queen, I want you
to play a young woman.’
‘That unlocked the character for me in
a big way,’ she added. ‘From then it was
really about finding the humanity and
vulnerability beneath the façade.’
Mary, Queen Of Scots is released 18 January

IT WAS FAIRLY epic, even by Met Ball
standards – which was, of course, the
point. But this was The Fashion Awards (it
dropped the ‘British’ a couple of years ago
in a bid to be a global player, which it now
most certainly is). The Royal Albert Hall
was dressed up like a firecracker – as was
much of the glittering celebrity roll call.
The top tier of mega-brand designers all
registered and present. The fashion was
a who’s who of swoon-worthy designer
gowns, ready for the after-party with DJ
Fat Tony on the decks, or the after-after
party at Chiltern Firehouse. It was an
evening full of emotion, escapism and
elegance. And one genuinely jaw-dropping
surprise: the Duchess of Sussex. Her
game-changing speech in a bump-hugging
velvet gown sealed the idea that we now
have the most scrutinised woman in the
34
world as British fashion’s ambassador-inchief. Let’s just say the usual eye-rolling,
seen-it-all fashion crowd was speechless
– too busy shrieking and yelping with joy.
Before handing the British Designer
of the Year award to Clare Waight Keller
– the first woman to helm the house of
Givenchy and designer of her wedding
dress – Meghan talked of ‘supporting and
empowering each other, especially as
women’. Praising the ‘vision and creativity,
but also incredible kindness’ of the visibly
astonished and tearful designer, the

duchess caught the mood by adding that
‘the culture of fashion was shifting, from
one where it was cool to be cruel, to one
where it was cool to be kind’.
That summed up the overall atmosphere
of the night, one marked by heightened
emotions – understandable, given the
uncertainty the industry finds itself in as
it faces the Brexit crisis. There were tears
from Richard Quinn as he accepted his
British Emerging Talent award, and
a rallying cry from arch rebel Dame
Vivienne Westwood, winner of the
Swarovski Award for Positive Change in
recognition for her work on environmental
and humanitarian issues. ‘I have a plan to
change the world’, she started with, ending
some 10 minutes later with, ‘The system
is totally broken and time is running out.’
Jerry Hall gently guided her off stage to
much whooping and cheering.
It was impressive to see not one
mega-brand designer in the room but
five, all receive gongs. The Outstanding
Achievement award went to Miuccia Prada
for her 40 visionary years at the top. ‘I’m
happy for the company more than myself,’
she said backstage, adding, ‘What I really
felt was the love and the sympathy of the
fashion world, that’s what impressed me.
The declaration of love they have for the
company, it moved me a lot.’
Meanwhile, Gucci’s star designer,
Alessandro Michele, picked up Best Brand,
honouring all those he worked with and
declaring: ‘It’s a beautiful job, but it’s a
hard job.’ Kim Jones won the inaugural
Trailblazer award as artistic director of Dior
Homme, and Virgil Abloh, artistic director
L-R: Carey Mulligan;
Kristin Scott Thomas;
Kendall Jenner;
Penélope Cruz
of menswear at Louis Vuitton, took home
the Urban Luxe award for his era-defining
Off-White label. The Designer of the Year
gong went to Pierpaolo Piccioli of Valentino,
who said he never wanted to forget ‘the kid I
was, the kid who loved and needed to dream’.
Amid all this, we had arguably the world’s
most beautiful family in the room – the
Gerbers – Cindy Crawford cheered as
daughter Kaia scooped Model of the Year in
a shredded silver Alexander McQueen gown.
Victoria Beckham also made a rare redcarpet appearance, alongside David and son
Brooklyn. Quite what she thought of host
Jack Whitehall bringing up David Beckham
night – joking that all eyes were on him
he royal wedding – we can only guess.
Add to that the fact that every time
u scanned the room, you clocked a sea
famous faces – Penélope Cruz, Uma
urman, Naomi Watts, Rosamund Pike,
ooke Shields, Carey Mulligan, Kristin
ott Thomas, Kate Moss, Kendall Jenner,
a Ora, and so on – freighted the event
h high-wattage glamour. But it was the
arkle sparkle’ that nobody will forget.

temptation might be to call the whole
thing off, curl up in an old pair of
jammies and crawl into bed early, that
hardly makes for an exciting start to
the new year. Don’t let the looming
spectre of January and a fingerwagging new, improved you knock
you off your stride – party season’s not
over yet. Green juice and Lycra can
wait; it’s time to drain every last drop
of decadence out of December.
New Year also calls for one last
style blowout. And instead of being
half-hearted about it, it’s time to go
all in. Shimmer, shine and shake
your stuff, dressing up semaphores
a powerful message to 2019: I’m
ready for you. And where better to
take your inspo from than the kind of
dazzling women who are always ready
to party? Sequins! Slips! Suiting!
There’s a muse to suit all tastes,
meaning that even if your night is less
than fabulous, your look still can be.
Three, two, one… Let’s party!

Stumped for festive fashion inspo?
May we suggest you cast your eye
over Dame Joan Collins’ Instagram
account (@joancollinsdbe).
Immediately. The bona fide legend
has been serving up her favourite
festive looks on her feed, from
sparkly trousers to brocade
jackets to Kurt Geiger boots (Joan
is the face of the shoe brand’s
Christmas campaign).
Unsurprisingly, Joan favours ‘full
throttle glamour’ for the festive
season (although she admits that
on the 25th ‘the traditional tacky
Christmas sweater is my choice’).
‘Leave understated elegance to
the rest of the year,’ she says. ‘You
can never have enough sparkles
and sequins during the holiday
period, so the [more] glitter, the
better. Big, chunky jewellery is
best. If you think it’s too much,
you haven’t gone far enough.’
While Joan admits there’s
‘nothing more glamorous’ than a
formal black tie and gown at New

THE 6 PEOPLE
YOU’LL MEET BACK HOME
PHOTOS: STOCKSY
OVER THE FESTIVE SEASON
Beware, ghosts of Christmas
past are lurking at your
parents’ local, says Jo Hoare
triggering amount of aftershave and
braying about his maid (a fortnightly
cleaner who picks up his pants), he’s an
assault on all the senses as he tries to order
vintage champagne in Wetherspoons.
IF YOUR FESTIVE celebrations mean
THE ONE EVERYONE FANCIED
making the pilgrimage to your parents’
house – you might even be reading this
en route, sandwiched next to a man who’s
been drinking ‘festive’ lager since 10am –
you’re not alone. We travelled 5.6 billion
miles last year to visit our families at
Christmas, according to Onepoll.com
(and here’s betting most of us then spent
a few nights on a lumpy put-you-up bed
in the box-room that’s now ‘mum’s gym’).
And yet, one of the greatest traditions
of the season is revisiting the local pub
– aka the one you threw up in after your
A-level results. Here are the people you’re
definitely going to run into there...
As a 14-year-old you’d have given up your
Heather Shimmer lipstick for a few
seconds of eye contact, and your friendship
group never recovered after one of you
snogged him at a house party. Will seeing
him again give you that same lurch in
your stomach? Well, yes, but for different
reasons… one marriage down, a second on
the way and a third-trimester beer belly.
THE NOW REALLY RICH ONE
The son of your parents’ neighbours-butone, he’s been in Dubai for the past four
years selling gold-lined swimming pools
(or something). Drenched in an asthma-
THE SWAN
You didn’t give this one a second glance in
school, but more fool you. Maybe they are
now a Hollywood star (sounds far-fetched,
but it happened to me) or they’ve had the
ultimate glow-up. Is it too late to crawl?
THE ‘FRIEND’ YOU AVOID
She might have snogged your boyfriend
when you bought him home from uni;
perhaps she smashed your parents’ lamp
at a house party and never admitted it, or
maybe she just ends all her social media
posts with XOXO. Whatever the reason,
you’ve avoided her for a decade, until
now… and an awkward prosecco-fuelled
‘catch-up’ is coming your way.
THE ONE WHO HAS GIVEN
BIRTH TO A LITTER
You defriended her on Facebook after she
posted the picture of baby number two’s
gastroenteritis nappy, so you had no idea
she’d popped out another three since then.
If you have any less than six offspring
yourself, she’ll look down on you for your
lazy, materialistic life – but not before she’s
shown you a 936-strong album entitled
‘Making memories’ on her cracked iPhone.
THE EX
You haven’t thought about them for years
(aside from that 2am ‘You up?’ text you
sent in 2013 after a nostalgic FB stalk),
but there they are again. It’s almost
certainly the combo of the ghost of teenage
sexual-frustration past and several freelypoured Baileys. Will this be the year you
succumb? Who knows…

As the number of people living in
poverty in the UK dramatically
rises, Grazia teams up with Shelter
for our charity appeal to help raise
vital funds for the fifth of the
population on the breadline.

‘hidden homeless’

am I homeless this Christmas?’
it was a normal day for most parents
dropping their children at John Donne
Primary School in South London. But,
as pupils filed in, Limarra Sealy, 25, stood
in the headteacher’s office and broke
down in tears.
She had come to explain why her
nine-year-old daughter, Nevaeh, had
bruises all over her face. In her sleep, she
had rolled off the chair she’s had to call
her bed for the past four months.
Limarra and Nevaeh were made
homeless in June. Despite Limarra
working full time as a restaurant manager,
she was still unable to afford rent in
London – where rental prices outstrip
many people’s earnings.
Previously, she had used housing benefit
to pay a quarter of her accommodation
costs, but after seven years in her flat, the
landlord asked for the property back.
Suddenly, unable to find anywhere to rent
that accepted a part-benefit payment, she
found herself with three options: sofa-surf,
stay in hostels or sleep on the street.
‘I felt terrified and didn’t know what to
do. I couldn’t understand how this was
happening to us,’ she says. She even
attempted suicide, waking up in hospital
one morning after taking an overdose.
For the first few weeks, they stayed in
council-run emergency accommodation
– an hour and a half ’s commute from
Nevaeh’s school. Then they were moved
to a homeless hostel, where the floors
were so filthy they needed slippers in the
shower and they shared the communal
space with male drug addicts.
They are now staying in Limarra’s
mother’s small flat in Peckham, sleeping
between a two-seater sofa and an armchair.
For Limarra, it’s been a humiliating
experience. ‘I am so embarrassed taking
Nevaeh into school. At night, I lie awake
watching her to make sure she doesn’t roll
off, feeling worthless and like I’ve failed
at everything.’
The prospect of Christmas while
homeless is something she never thought
she’d have to face. ‘Christmas feels
completely ruined. We can’t put a tree
up because we live in the living room
and there’s no space,’ she adds.
‘On Christmas morning we’ll wake
up on the sofa or the floor. I haven’t even
been able to buy my daughter a present
– we’ve had to throw loads of our
belongings away because we don’t have
anywhere to put anything anymore.’
Limarra is far from alone. While the
serious problem of street-homelessness is
visible in large swathes of the UK, there’s
another troubled group that many aren’t
aware of – the ‘hidden homeless’. Those
being forced to find difficult or dangerous
makeshift arrangements for their families
to avoid sleeping rough.
It’s a situation that can happen more
easily than we think. Last month, Shelter
revealed that 320,000 people are now
homeless in Britain, and the numbers
keep rising. In the last year, the charity
found the number had increased by
13,000, meaning one in every 200 of us
are on the street or stuck in temporary
accommodation.
Then this month, the Joseph Rowntree
Foundation ( JFR) found more than
500,000 British workers were living in
poverty over the past five years, despite
being in employment. Meanwhile, food
banks warn this December could be their
busiest month ever.
Against this backdrop, a UN report
claims the UK Government has inflicted
‘great misery’ on the population, by
imposing cuts under their austerity
policies and bringing in Universal Credit
– a new benefit system that charities say is
leaving some people in debt because of 45

in with her parents. Now she’s adjusting to
living three to a room.
‘I never thought I’d be in the position
where I don’t know where my next meal is
coming from,’ she says. ‘I’ve been to food
banks three times this year. At one point
all I had was a couple of tins of food left
in the house.
‘Right now, it’s raining and I’d love to
take my little boy to soft play, but I have
no spare money. There’s absolutely nothing
I can do with the kids – it makes me feel
so embarrassed and ashamed.’
The Trussell Trust, which operates 428
food banks, reported that its facilities were
four times busier in areas where Universal
Credit had been in place for 12 months.
Abby Jitendra, a manager at the national
network, says it’s because there’s been a
steady cut-back of the amount of
Government support people can receive.
She says demand for Trussell Trust food
banks has increased – they saw a 3% rise
between April and September in the UK
this year. ‘That’s only half the year so that’s
really concerning,’ she says.
From speaking to people in food banks,
she adds, ‘I know there are cases of people
sending their children to live with friends
because they can’t afford to feed them…
Alston’s report was really true to
experiences I’ve seen.’
Brexit casts its shadow over everything,
leaving some charities worried that issues
of welfare are becoming increasingly
Limarra and
her daughter
Nevaeh in the
room they share
sidelined. Kayley Hignell, head of policy
at Citizens Advice, thinks there’s a
big challenge at the moment about
‘political bandwidth to look at domestic
policy issues’.
‘It’s a huge issue,’ she adds. ‘It’s what
affects people day to day. It absolutely
cannot be lost in that debate. There is
a risk [that it’s being overshadowed].’
However, Amber Rudd, the current
Work and Pensions Secretary, complained
the tone of Alston’s report was ‘highly
inappropriate’. A Government
spokesperson told Grazia: ‘Universal
Credit is supporting people into work
faster, but we are listening to feedback
and have made numerous improvements
to the system including ensuring
2.4 million households will be up to
£630 better off a year as a result of raising
the work allowance.’
The question now is what will become
of the hidden homeless generation, mired
in an impossible situation? Equally, what
is lurking around the corner for those of
us lucky enough to have a home?
‘I never thought this would happen to
me,’ says Limarra. ‘And now I’m in it, the
scariest part is that I can’t see a way out.’
For those who can afford it, now’s the time
to donate generously and support the fifth
of the country who will spend this
Christmas on the breadline.

a five-week delay in initial payments and
because it doesn’t cover some people’s rent.
Ending his two-week fact-finding
mission to the UK last month, Philip
Alston, the UN’s special rapporteur on
extreme poverty and human rights, declared
that around 14 million people live in
poverty here and 1.5 million are destitute
and unable to afford basic essentials.
And so, instead of focusing on an
international crisis this year, Grazia is
setting its sights closer to home for our
2018 Christmas appeal – raising awareness
of the dramatic rise in poverty and
homelessness in Britain. We are supporting
Shelter, a charity that campaigns to end
homelessness and bad housing. Shelter’s
CEO, Polly Neate, says, ‘[Our] services
have never been more needed. That’s why
we’re asking the public to support us this
winter so that we can answer as many calls
as possible and have trained advisers on
hand when people need them most.’
Shelter offer advice to anyone who can’t
pay their rent. The severity of the problem
is exposed in a Facebook group called
Universal Credit Survival. Here, one of its
4,603 members asks how to make a sack
of potatoes go as far as possible. Another
writes: ‘How are people budgeting for
Christmas this year? I don’t know how I’ll
afford a card for my son, let alone a present.’
Fiona*, 33, a dental nurse from Durham,
scours the group for tips on how to survive
on her £473 a month Universal Credit
payment. Her rent is £404 and she has two
children, who are six and two. She is left
with £69 a month for everything else.
Like thousands of others, Fiona never
thought she’d be in this situation. But
when she got breast cancer, as a freelancer,
she found herself without sick pay or a
salary. She went on Universal Credit in
January, but because the system involves a
five-week wait before the initial payment,
she got into debt and couldn’t pay her rent.
‘It feels so awful – I’ve never ever been in
debt before,’ she says.
Nothing feels worse than having to rely
on friends and food banks, she adds. ‘I’ve
had to borrow money just to buy [my
children] Christmas presents this year.
It makes me feel so uncomfortable.’
When she couldn’t afford her gas and
electricity any longer, she moved back

WOMB WITH A VIEW
Every week, a woman reflects on
motherhood – whether she has children or not
Unwrapped presents and slobbing
around in pyjamas – that’s
Carmen Marcus’s idea of the ideal
Christmas Day. Here’s why…
hristmas day 2017, it’s gone
11am, I’m still in my pyjamas
holding my breastfeeding
one-year-old son Magnus with
one hand and trying to turn off
my mobile with the other. My
phone is jingling like a reindeer
stampede as friends send over pictures of their perfect
Christmases: trees twinkling above parcel mountains;
kids dressed as elves, puddings and angels. Meanwhile,
at our house there are unwrapped presents under the
kitchen table. I didn’t get a tree (my boy is a climber).
He does at least have his penguin jumper on but there’s
little chance of me actually capturing a picture of him.
Did I plan it this way? If, by planning, you mean
avoiding ‘doing’ Christmas because just the thought
of it filled me with the terror most folk reserve for
Halloween, then yes, this is what I planned and it was
beyond wondrous. It was beautiful and handmade,
c
Carmen

like the paper snowflakes I cut out the night before
and cellotaped to the walls.
I’m not a born humbug. I want to believe in the
magic of Christmas, but there are ghosts. In the
summer of 1984 my strong, brilliant mother had a
nervous breakdown. I was seven. I watched her put
her hands through a glass door. Then she was taken
away. I was told she’d be better by Christmas but she
had a full relapse. When Christmas came around
I’d seen inside a mental institution. I’d looked up
electric-shock therapy in my Collins school dictionary.
I’d watched a priest give my mum the last rites. I’d
thrown cat poo into the gardens of neighbours who
called my mum ‘the mad Paddy’.
What I remember of that Christmas is an
undocumented tangle: the click of my mum’s shoes
on the aisle at church; her chin twitching to hold up
her smile and hold in something so big it made her
body shake. She wasn’t better but she was well enough
not to let anyone see it. She’d put on her good tweed
suit and her Bally shoes and marched in to show them
all – the neighbours who’d called her names; the priest
who gave her up for dead – that she had survived. I
adore her and love her for that. But I saw what she was
suppressing; a raging shadow under her skin.
Christmas magic is fuelled by innocence and that
year I lost mine. Our ‘happy Christmas’ had been just
for show. After that, everything to do with the season
made me anxious, and the bigger the festive plan, the
bigger I expected the bang to be when it broke.
So for a while I got away with low-level cheer –
which is fine when you’re young or a new couple with
hangovers to nurse. The one time I tried to put on my
own Christmas performance was just after I’d married.
I did the works: posh dress, eight foot tree, themed
decorations – and ended up in A&E with an anxietyinduced rash that could only be treated with powerful
steroids. My body had to cover itself in loud red

stop signs to tell me not to try to force Christmas.
But when I became a mother myself there was
this whole new expectation to make this year a
really special Christmas. Add to this that my son is a
Christmas baby, born on 12 December, and you’ve got
a perfect storm in a snow-globe. His first Christmas
passed by in a blur of newborn-ness. But last year,
my anxiety peaked in early December. Friends’ social
media was bursting with pictures of kids stroking
reindeer and riding the Christmas train that runs
through some nearby woods to Santa’s grotto.
Watching it happen through my phone I felt like
I was depriving my son of these special memories.
My hometown’s Christmas parade goes past our
house every year. I could hear the local radio station
cranking out Slade’s festive summons as Christmas
was literally passing us by. I wrestled my son into a
snowsuit, grabbed my husband and we dashed out
of the door. We were ‘doing’ Christmas, like in all
the pictures. Here I was strapping on a smile as tight
as parcel tape over something ripping inside me. I
got home and sobbed until I shook.
The problem with ‘better by Christmas’ is that it’s
just a day, it doesn’t have that power. So I told myself
that when Christmas Day itself came around, what
I would take from my mum’s approach wasn’t the
performance but her defiance: the courage to reject
perfection and settle for pyjamas. That meant my
gorgeous baby had not a clue that it was Christmas
Day but he did have a cracking time running around

parsnips and dancing around with his mum and dad.
Of all the Christmas card greetings, I think the most
underestimated message is peace. At its root, peace
means permission, and we need to give ourselves
permission to not be better – or the best – at Christmas.
This Christmas we’re going to risk getting a small tree,
and my son will be getting a climbing frame. We’ll be
having the family over for some festive food – I’m
planning on something simple – but not until 3pm,
so there’ll be plenty of time for pyjama fun first.
And you know what? That’s perfect enough for me.

BECAME THE YEAR
From Time’s Up to a female
Doctor Who, Janice Turner
reflects on why the last 12
months have been nothing
short of monumental
OF THE WOMAN
if 2017 was the year
women found their words,
2018 was when they turned
to action. The Hollywood
actresses who last October
made allegations against Harvey Weinstein
emboldened women in every profession to
expose the sexual abuse – major and minor,
decades ago and yesterday – they had
endured in silence. But what next? РЕЛИЗ ПОДГОТОВИЛА ГРУППА "What's News" VK.COM/WSNWS
The cast of Big
Little Lies celebrate
their wins at the
Golden Globes
On 1 January, the new Time’s Up
movement answered that question.
‘The clock has run out on sexual assault,
harassment, and inequality in the workplace,’
it pledged. ‘It’s time to do something about
it.’ Clad in sombre black at the Golden
Globes, stars including Meryl Streep, Emma
Stone and Laura Dern brought feminist
campaigners and trade union activists along
as their dates. Time’s Up raised millions
in funding, recruited lawyers, and resolved
to fight abusers in court.
The tone was set for a serious year. It felt
as if stone after stone was being turned in
the establishment, exposing the murk of
sexual exploitation hidden beneath. Every
day seemed to bring another exposé,
another set of abusive men who thought
they’d never be found out.
We learned that the Presidents Club
hold a charity dinner at which waitresses
are told to wear black underwear and
sign a non-disclosure agreement (NDA).
An undercover journalist working as a
waitress claimed she was groped several
times. In February, a report into
Westminster revealed one in five people
who work there had suffered sexual
harassment in the previous 12 months.
Then male Oxfam aid workers were alleged
to have traded baby milk for sexual favours

after the devastating Haiti earthquake.
When the parole board announced that
John Worboys, the London taxi driver
convicted of drugging and raping 12
women, was about to be released after
serving less than 10 years of a supposedly
indefinite sentence, women’s anger boiled
over. Worboys allegedly committed at least
100 more attacks. Were women, in the
midst of #MeToo, supposed to accept he
should be free to rape again? Why did
men care so little for our safety? A
crowdfunding appeal was launched,
hundreds donated and the Centre for
Women’s Justice, representing 11 victims,
fought to keep him in jail – and won.
This was the year, after a campaign by
Caroline Criado-Perez, that a statue of
suffragist Millicent Fawcett by artist
Gillian Wearing was erected in Parliament
Square, a rare woman publicly celebrated
among hundreds of men. Fawcett’s figure
holds a banner bearing her words ‘Courage
calls to courage everywhere’. It became the
unofficial slogan of 2018.
It certainly applied in Ireland. For
decades pregnant Irish women had

– 170,000 since 1980 – many carrying
foetuses with serious abnormalities, who
could never survive. Most did so in secret,
not even telling their families, for fear and
shame. But one by one, they gathered the
courage to speak out. They did so because
the Irish constitution banned abortion
in all circumstances except to save a
mother’s life. And even that provision was
not enough for Savita Halappanavar, who
bled to death miscarrying in 2012.
I reported from Dublin during the Irish
referendum on abortion in May and was
awed by the magnificent, imaginative and
tireless Repeal campaign. Every woman
I met thought the result would be close,
fearing the Catholic Church’s hold over
their bodies could never be broken. But in
the end it was a 66% Yes vote. A landslide!
Now comes the fight in Parliament to
extend abortion rights to the forgotten
women of Northern Ireland.

Newton’s law of physics that ‘every action
has an equal and opposite reaction’ applies
to politics too. Events like having a
self-confessed ‘pussy-grabber’ in the White
House and the appointment of a Supreme
Court judge likely to overturn the right to
an abortion enshrined in Roe V Wade
caused an unprecedented number of
women – many Hispanic and African

sadly, this is still a pitiful fifth of seats.

citing inequality with male colleagues and
condemning the BBC’s ‘secretive and
illegal pay culture’. Women are notoriously
bad at asking for a rise but she risked her
career to demand one – and won. I wonder
how many other women have since had a
quiet word with their boss.

later in the year its owner Philip Green was
alleged to have concealed sexual harassment
allegations against him with NDAs. Green
vehemently denies any wrongdoing.
There is a female Doctor Who; Fiona

language from her own party about
‘nooses’ and knives.
There are warnings that the progress
made in challenging institutionalised
sexual abuse will lead to a backlash. But
it feels as if the conversation, whether in
politics, Twitter or offices across the land,
has shifted. A new generation of women
has answered the call to courage and
anything now feels possible in 2019.

‘ I hope
my friend,
Yulia Skripal,
sees this
and reaches
out to me’
Irina Petrova was the
best friend of Yulia, who,
along with her father,
was poisoned earlier this
year in Salisbury. Nine
months on, Anna
Silverman discovers
what happened next
it’s been a surreal year for Irina Petrova:
first, her best friend of 27 years, Yulia Skripal,
was the victim of an assassination attempt that
became one of the biggest global news stories
of 2018. Then, she had to adjust to news that
Yulia had made a miraculous recovery – yet
she might still never get to speak to her again.
‘I’ve phoned and emailed Yulia many times
this year,’ says Irina. ‘I email saying, “How can
54
I help you? I’m here for you. It doesn’t
matter where you are, I’m always here
for you.” But she won’t reply because she
has had to disappear.’
On 4 March, Russian double-agent
Sergei Skripal and his daughter Yulia
were found slumped on a bench in
Salisbury after being poisoned by
the chemical nerve agent Novichok.
Then, four months later, Dawn Sturgess
died after being exposed to the same
Novichok nerve agent, believed to have
come from a discarded perfume bottle.
The assassination attempt shocked the
world and left the West’s relations with
Moscow colder than ever. It sparked huge
global ramifications after Theresa May
said it was ‘highly likely’ Moscow was
behind it, and more diplomats were
expelled from countries around the
world than at the height of the Cold War.
Sergei, 66, remained unconscious for
a month, while Yulia, 34, was in a coma
for 20 days. After they both regained
consciousness, they were quickly
whisked away into a life of obscurity
to protect them from future murder
attempts. They are said to have been
given new identities by British
authorities and entered the world
of safe houses and false passports.
‘I understand why,’ adds Irina, 34,
who went to school with Yulia in
Moscow, but now lives in Hamburg
after she moved for her husband’s job.
‘She’s in a secret place because it is
dangerous for her now. She is the only
one who really knows what happened to
her and Sergei this year. It’s difficult for
me, but I hope it’s for the best for her
and she is safe. I know Yulia is tough.
But I want to know how she is feeling
now. Living like that isn’t a real life.’
Irina says she misses Yulia and, for the
first few months after the attack, she was
living in complete shock. ‘I wanted

to do this interview because I know
Yulia will see it and I want her to
reach out to me.’
The pair grew up together, with
Irina and their friends often partying
at Yulia’s house until the early hours
when Sergei and Yulia’s mother,
Ludmila, were away. Even when they
were home, Irina says they were
always very welcoming.
‘When Sergei was arrested for
espionage in 2004, it was on every
news channel. We were really
surprised. Yulia wouldn’t talk about
it,’ Irina says. Sergei then spent four
years in a Russian prison for spying
before being moved to Britain as part
of a spy-swap deal in 2010.
Yulia was still living in Moscow at
the time of the poisoning, but was
over in Salisbury visiting her father.
Since the attack, Irina hasn’t been
able to speak to anyone in Yulia’s
family. Irina never predicted Yulia
would be caught up in anything like
this, but with hindsight now says she
did find it strange when Yulia didn’t
mention to her that her mother and
brother had died a few years earlier.
Right: Sergei
and Yulia
Skripal
‘Year after year, everybody was
dead,’ she says. ‘I found out [about
Yulia’s mother’s death] from my
mother, who bumped into Yulia in
the street in Moscow. I asked what
happened and she told me it was
cancer. After the mysterious death of
her brother [reported to be from liver
disease], I was shocked. He was a big,
healthy guy. After that she deleted all
photos with relatives in them from
her social media – perhaps so no other
loved ones could be tracked down.’
Whether the deaths in Yulia’s
family were suspicious, or whether
they spooked Yulia into thinking she
and her dad were next, Irina isn’t sure.
But since the Salisbury attack, Irina
wonders whether Sergei will survive.
‘I wonder whether he will recover
and ever live normally. It doesn’t
sound good with him. He hasn’t done
any voice or TV appearances. He was
meant to call his mother, Jelena, on
her 90th birthday in June, but Yulia
called her instead because I heard he
still had tubes in his throat.’

– who were caught on CCTV – were

Salisbury twice to see the city’s cathedral,

SHE’S JUST LIKE US!
The internet went into meltdown when Meghan closed
a car door with her own hand while on her first solo royal
engagement. Cue lots of hand-wringing about protocol and
etiquette. And those saying she’s still just like us (sort of ).
MEGHAN’S
MEGHA
YEAR
FAMILY DRAMAS
Dad Thomas staged
paparazzi photos, gave
interviews and didn’t
walk her down the aisle.
Half-sister Samantha
openly criticised her, then
showed up at Kensington
Palace wearing a mask
of the duchess’s face.
Throughout it all,
Meghan remained silent.
A ROYAL FIRST
Meghan’s first ‘date’ with
HM was a PR hit. The
Queen even cracked a
smile, so she can’t have
been bothered that
Meghan had apparently
inadvertently ‘disrespected’
her by not wearing a hat.
LOVE MATCH
Prompting much
speculation about how
they get on, Meghan
and Kate watched
Serena Williams lose
to Angelique Kerber in
the Wimbledon final.
NAPPY NEWS
When Meghan arrived
at Princess Eugenie’s
wedding in October
wearing an oversized,
unbuttoned coat, it
prompted fevered
speculation that she
was pregnant. Indeed,
the duchess ‘shared
the happy news’ with
the rest of the royal
family at the wedding,
before jetting off for a
16-day tour of Australia
and New Zealand.
The fact that I was among them – standing
in the grounds of Windsor Castle,
commenting on a royal wedding and what
it means – was itself evidence of the fact
that, this year, the royal family changed.
Growing up, I was little interested in
the royals. As a mixed-race girl of English,
Jewish-German and Ghanaian heritage,
they had little to offer my sense of identity.
I respected the fact that people feel
sentimental about them – the importance
of symbols of belonging is something I
intuitively understand. But here was a
family that had led the imperial destruction
of such symbols in my Ghanaian family’s
past, and whose whiteness only served to
remind me that I wasn’t sure if someone
with my background could ever really
be British. If there was a belief prevalent
in our society that Britishness was an
exclusively white identity, the royal
family was that belief personified.
Then Meghan Markle entered the fray.
Here was a woman who is biracial, like
me; with African heritage, like me; with
a black mother she is close to, like I am
to mine. And who – as has not been the
tendency for the few high-profile black
British people who have reached such
visible positions – actually talks about
her racial identity. She was entering a
space that has been both traditional in its
whiteness and white in its traditions, just
as people of colour like me often enter
exclusively white spaces when we work
or interact with the British establishment.
For the first time, there was a royal I
could intimately relate to.
That was gratifying for me but, for
Britain as a whole, it was crucial. Harry
and Meghan’s wedding, with all the
celebration of black music, talent and
spirituality they chose in their service,
woke Britain up to the rich histories
and cultures that have already been in
our midst, unappreciated, sidelined
and often unloved.
The press honeymoon that surrounded
this irresistible love story may be drawing
to a close with the darkening winter
days. The newspapers have – in that other
most British of traditions – begun dining
out on Meghan’s supposed rifts and
princess-like behaviour (that somehow
seems a less outrageous accusation of
someone married to a prince).
But such speculation is business as
usual for the British royals. And it’s this
– the fact that our mixed-race duchess
has become part of the ordinary – that
is in fact the biggest change of all.

Mum
HAD A UNIQUE
C A PA C I T Y
F O R L OV E
i knew, even when I was very little,
how lucky I was to have her as my mum.
Spending time with her was one of my
favourite things: idling the hours away
endlessly chatting, doing face masks,
going for walks, cooking supper, or:
‘Darling – 2nd floor at Liberty’s? Let’s
have some tea and the sales are on; I
want to get you something lovely.’
Mum had a unique capacity for love
– she was just passionate about strangers.
It was how she transformed the world
around her. It didn’t matter to her who
you were, she saw a magic in people
that they often didn’t know existed in
themselves. And you just need to take what
you know of her as a public servant and
times that by infinity to understand how
she loved her family: no matter how much
she gave to so many others, she saved her
best for us. Whatever the pressures of her
job, she would always answer her phone,
even if she did occasionally say in a hushed
voice: ‘Sweetheart, I’m in Cabinet, is
everything OK?’
The love between us came into soaring
technicolour when my daughter was born.
Morning rituals of FaceTime and lengthy
conversations about how our night had
been, how many times Ottie had fed or
not, new expressions that had appeared
overnight – all of which were observed by
Mum as if she was witnessing for the first
time the miracle of life itself.
But at 6.45pm on 24 May 2017, when
my daughter was just 10 weeks old, the
magic of our ordinary life ruptured forever.
Completely out of the blue, Mum had
two major seizures and was diagnosed with
a grade 4 glioblastoma, the most lethal of
all cancers, in the left temporal lobe of her
brain. We were told it was terminal and, if
we were lucky, we had just over a year.
Even for a family of staunch optimists
like my own, we were cast off into a
landscape that felt impossibly dark and
utterly hopeless. It’s difficult to explain
to anyone who hasn’t experienced the
trauma of an event like this what it feels
like, because it is less of a feeling, more
like a physical assault on your body. For
months I felt like I had electricity coursing
through my veins, a searing combination
of panic, heartbreak, shock and anxiety.
However, what we didn’t know at this

point was that we were already at the lucky
end of an awful spectrum. As the news of
Mum’s diagnosis became known to friends
and colleagues, we quickly found ourselves
under the guidance of some of the leading
global experts in neuro-oncology and
medical innovation. That crushingly low
ceiling of treatment options was removed
and, in the coming months, a galaxy of
other options at the front lines of innovation
was revealed: genomic data was sequenced,
and everything from nurtraceuticals to
repurposed medications to off-label cancer
drugs could be recommended.
Of course, the NHS operates – as it has
to do – within narrow financial limits and
a strict ethical framework, so it was clear
that we were going to have to fight tooth
and nail to access these other treatment
options ourselves. For the past year, this
became my life. A full-time occupation,
officially termed ‘patient advocate’ – it is
actually a work of love, generated by sheer
desperation to do anything possible to save
the person you love beyond description.
But we were the lucky ones…
The only time I saw Mum cry was after
one of her radiotherapy appointments. She
had observed the waiting room of people,
and processed the brutal realisation that
the fate of each person in that room had
already been written by virtue of their
privilege, or lack of it. In her words, this is
‘the most despicable example of inequality’.
Our mission was written in this
moment, and in the last four months of
her life, she instigated a call to arms to
radically rethink the way that we approach
research, trials and patient access. How can
we improve patient experience, so as to
close the huge cancer inequalities that exist
both in the UK and around the world?
Mum’s campaign for more innovative
cancer treatments to be made available
through the NHS has instigated a
movement that will change the future for
cancer patients. ACT for Cancer has been
created to deliver Mum’s legacy. Her
speech in the House of Lords earlier this
year saw the first-ever standing ovation in
its history. As she said, ‘What gives life
meaning is not only how it is lived,
but how it draws to a close.’
We have already seen incredible
progress in our campaign, with
the Government pledging an
additional £65m to research, and
next year will see the launch of the
first-ever national adaptive treatment
trial for brain cancer, funded by The
Brain Tumour Charity, at Birmingham
University Hospital, called the Tessa Jowell
Brain Matrix. Even in her death, Mum is
a giant of leadership – she is with us on
this mission, guiding us all the way.
But no legacy is greater than that of
mothering. Mum is in every molecule
of the way I love my daughter and that
continuum is as close to immortality as
we get. Reconciling her physical absence
is just impossibly painful. It has created a
searing longing that I have not yet learned
how to navigate. I have regular bouts of
missing her so much that the earth in this
strange new world suddenly disappears
from underneath me. But just as I start to
fall, like magic, she is there again. Igniting
the resilience that she spent her lifetime
embedding into my core.

boys of the Wild Boar football academy, aged 11 to
16, and their 25-year-old coach had been planning
a short trip into the caves after practice to
celebrate one player’s birthday. The hope
was that they were safe but trapped by
floodwaters inside a subterranean chamber.
In the following days, a makeshift
encampment sprang up at the mouth of the
cave: families maintaining a round-the-clock
vigil, desperate for any news; local rescue
teams; Buddhist monks to offer prayers and
blessings; and the global media en masse.
The early prospects seemed grim as the
dark, narrow, flooded passageways beat back
the rescuers, with no further clues to the
whereabouts of the boys. But among those
helping the rescue mission was an English
pot-holing enthusiast who lives much of the
year a few miles away. Vernon Unsworth
knew the caves better than anyone. ‘The
search was going nowhere, the conditions
were worsening and we had no idea where
the boys were,’ Vernon told me. ‘We needed
the expertise of world-class cave divers to
look for these kids – and we needed it fast.’
During those first three days, Vernon

scrambled and waded deep into the cave
complex in search of an alternative route
to chambers inside the mountain. With
the waters rising fast as heavy rains lashed
the area, he knew time was running out.
So he persuaded the Thai officials to call
in a team of British cave-diving rescue
experts – the world’s best in these
conditions – who were on standby back
home. It was a life-saving intervention.
The first breakthrough came when John
Volanthen and Rick Stanton, two of the
British divers exploring the labyrinth,
emerged in an air pocket deep inside
the mountain on 2 July. As their torches
illuminated the darkness, they realised
they were not alone. They’d discovered
the gaunt figures who had spent nine days
at the edge of a mud bank. ‘How many of
you?’ John asked. ‘Thirteen,’ came the reply
from an English-speaking boy. ‘Thirteen?
Brilliant.’ Footage of the encounter,
captured on the divers’ helmet cameras,
was posted online, to worldwide jubilation.
But in the wake of that euphoria came
the realisation that finding them was the
easy part. Now the rescuers had to bring
out the 13, many of whom could not
swim, and none of whom had ever dived.
There was talk that the boys could be left
there, supplied by divers with food and
clothing, until the rainy season ended
months later. In reality, that was never
an option – the physical and mental
impact would be devastating, even if
they had survived. Another suggestion,
also quickly discarded, was that the 13
be given crash courses in diving. But
the danger of the boys panicking, which
would almost certainly have cost them
their lives, was simply too great.
Behind the scenes, a plan was drawn up:
the boys would be sedated and then partly
carried, pushed and passed along the
escape route, with full-face air masks and
equipment for the submerged sections.
The parents gave their consent. The boys
were also told the plan and agreed. The
sedation was to be overseen by Richard
Harris, an Australian diver and medic
with an expertise in anaesthesia.
On the morning of 8 July, Narongsak
Osottanakorn, the regional governor
who was heading the international rescue
operation, declared, ‘Today is D-Day.’
Inside the chamber, Richard administered
anti-anxiety pill Xanax, followed by an
injection of ketamine, a strong sedative,
to each leg. He admitted later that he
never thought the plan would work.
The scope for something, anything, to go
horribly wrong was huge.
But, against the odds, it succeeded, as all
13 were brought to safety in a mission led
by the British divers over the next 72 hours.
Joyful cheers rang out from the press tents
as journalists counted the helicopters, 13
in all, flying overhead to carry the rescued
boys and their coach to hospital.
A few days later, the boys emerged from
hospital – they had lost weight and some
were suffering from pneumonia, but they
were in remarkably robust health – to start
telling their story. Under the guidance of
Ekkaphon Chanthawong – or Coach Ake
– they had eked out their meagre rations,
used their torches sparingly, drunk fresh
water running down the rocks and huddled
together for warmth. The coach, a former
monk, had also taught the boys to meditate
to survive their ordeal by calming their
nerves and preserving their energy.
Now, insisted child psychologists, they
needed to return to their normal lives. But
it didn’t quite work out like that. First, they
were flown to Bangkok to attend a massive
celebration party in the grounds of the
royal residence. They then embarked on
a global tour, including TV appearances.
They are now back at home and school
in Thailand’s Chiang Rai province. And
six months on? ‘My daily activities are the
same: I ride my bike to school and play
football,’ says Duangpetch Phromthep, 13,
who now has 350,000 Instagram followers.
Chanin Wiboonrungruang, 11, echoed his
sentiments. ‘Things are back to normal,
except now I have more friends.’

Megan and
Wes in the
life-changing
Love Island villa
MEGAN:
‘I FEEL STRONGER
A F T E R L OV E I S L A N D ’
With 3.6 million viewers and
thousands of column inches,
Love Island was the most talkedabout event of the summer.
Four months on, Grazia
catches up with its star…
WORDS: HARRIET KEAN
WHEN MEGAN Barton Hanson
applied to go on this summer’s Love Island,
she thought she was signing up to a free
holiday. She didn’t expect to leave handin-hand with her current boyfriend, Wes
Nelson, after declaring her love for him
in front of an enraptured nation. And she
certainly didn’t think they would be one of
the few couples who are still together. But
now, with an impending TV show of their
own and a new pet hamster (named after
Jon Snow – the Game Of Thrones character
played by Kit Harington), this Love Island
couple can be, as the former glamour
model tells Grazia, ‘the smug ones’.
Life, she says, has changed immeasurably
since the show, which saw 4.1 million
viewers tune in for the final. ‘I went from
living in Southend-on-Sea, going down
the high street with literally no make-up
on and in tracksuit bottoms to now, where
everywhere I go, people know who I am,’
she says from the North London
apartment she now shares with Wes.
Most importantly, the show has given
her the confidence she never had. ‘You
can’t put on a persona,’ she adds of life
inside the villa. Megan admits that, before
Love Island, she used to hide behind her
semi-naked Instagram feed. ‘But now I
know I don’t need the social media, the
followers and the sexy photoshopped
pictures for people to like me. Knowing
that was really good for my confidence.
I realised that people love me for me. Wes
fell in love with me for the stripped-back
version of Megan from Love Island. It was
like the old-school version of dating before
social media – no filters, none of this
outside influence, we were just getting
to know each other on face value.’
We’re talking shortly after the 24-yearold revealed last month that she has
struggled with depression ‘on and off
throughout my life’, and that six months
before she went on Love Island she felt
so depressed she asked her mother’s
permission to kill herself. Today, she
says the show was her cure. ‘The whole
experience was completely out of my
comfort zone. I came out feeling stronger.’
But despite her newfound selfconfidence, Megan is still ‘shocked’ by the
relentless abuse she received for having been
so open on screen about her plastic surgery.
‘Especially as it’s more common for reality
TV contestants to have had surgery than
not,’ she says incredulously. ‘But you get
through it,’ she adds, stating that she now
uses her platform, ‘to talk about bullying
and mental health. There shouldn’t be so
much stigma surrounding these issues.’
So, what’s next for Megan? After
gracing the cover of Grazia straight after
her villa exit in August, she’s keen to
become a fashion model, saying, ‘I was
so happy to actually be shot in cool
clothes rather than being half-naked.’
And she’s intent on continuing to speak
out about mental health, too. ‘I want to
inspire, to be like Adwoa Aboah with her
online community Gurls Talk,’ she says.
‘I love talking to people and I want to
continue raising awareness of anxiety.’
But, for now, she’s still just soaking up
this year. ‘Going into the villa, I thought it
would just be a really good experience and
that I’d have some fun. I never thought I’d
be on the cover of a magazine, or with a
boyfriend. I honestly couldn’t be happier.’

On the sidelines
in his M&S
waistcoat,
England manager
Gareth Southgate
became the
unlikely idol
of the summer.

moment, says

even for those of us for whom
football is something that happens to
other people, 2018 was the year we all
engaged at some small level with the
World Cup. The reason: English football’s
charming and mild-mannered manager,
Mr Gareth Southgate; he of the waistcoats,
family man and kindness thing.
There were two seminal moments in
our Southgate love. The first occurred
immediately after England’s unexpected
victory against Colombia. While his
team celebrated its triumph, Southgate
consoled an opposition player who was
sobbing over a missed penalty. The second
took place a few nights later, when his
team marked its quarter-final victory over
Sweden not with riotous carousing, but
by sitting down to break bread with their
wives and children. Saint Gareth enthused:
‘We are going to keep that tradition of
them coming in and having dinner with
us. Those things have played their part.’
If one were looking for evidence of
how England’s World Cup approach had
changed over the last 12 years, it would
be this meal and this statement. Gone
was the bravura and gender segregation
of Baden-Baden in 2006. Back then, our
boys operated under a sex ban, their wives
left to their own devices. As for children,
no one spared a thought. Southgate, in
contrast, encouraged Fabian Delph to
68
return home for the birth of his baby.
In doing so, he not only reinvented
how we view sporting prowess, but also
how we perceive masculinity. Where
once the not-particularly-beautiful game
was embodied by David Beckham – a
flash individual, like so many of the
egomaniacs who have dominated football
for 30 years – this summer it was
personified by a man whose values of
modesty, niceness and hard graft restored
us to ourselves.
As one sporting commentator tells me:
‘I don’t know much about Gareth, which
is one of the reasons he’s such a decent
bloke.’ His habit of cupping his young
team members’ faces was beautiful to
behold: benevolent, paternal, literally
a steadying hand. The team he selected
was less bling than the class of 2006, more
a group of hard-working young men, some
of whom had been forced to fight their
way up on loan at unfashionable clubs.
Football’s compassionate new face
reflected the spirit of the age. Baden-Baden
took place in a period of pre-recessionary
bling. In 2018, we found ourselves mired
by uncertainty. The #MeToo campaign
meant that casual misogyny of the sort
that berated WAGs for their partners’
failings was no longer tolerated. Times
had changed, ‘Ingerland’ had changed.
Cometh the hour, cometh the man.

2018 was the joint hottest
summer on record (with
1976). Here were the
sweltering consequences…

Former Arsenal Women’s captain
Alex Scott was one of the BBC’s
pundits at the 2018 World Cup.
From playing Three Lions in the
dressing room with Rio Ferdinand
to a match of korobka (street
football), she tells Harriet Kean
what it was like reporting from
Russia’s frontline…
I felt like a big kid in Russia. I’d just
retired from playing for Arsenal, so
it was great to be there, taking in
the atmosphere and watching all the
games. Everybody was in such a good
mood and the fans were incredible.
Our team at the BBC had a real
laugh. Rio Ferdinand, Gary Lineker
and Phil Neville felt like my older
brothers. We went out for dinner
all the time and, when we weren’t
watching the action live, we were
glued to the TV in the hotel. After
England crashed out, we all
regrouped there. It was
a weird atmosphere;
we were eating pizza,
barely speaking.
Still, what Gareth
Southgate did for that
team is unbelievable.
He showed the
nation that there is
a different way of
teaching. He is
gentle, down-to-
earth and able to listen. He created
an environment where everyone can
have an opinion. Ultimately, he
reconnected the English fans with
their team. They’ve got their pride
back. And as the team were so open
to the media, the nation was even
more invested. We felt part of their
journey as we followed the boys
on social media.
Being the first female pundit
for the BBC was special,
especially as the reception back
home was so positive. Luckily,
I didn’t experience any sexism
from the public, and my team
were completely behind me.
I’ve never wanted to be included
so as to purely ‘tick a box’. I
worked hard to get where I am;
I got a media degree, and when I was
playing football, I would run from
training sessions to the TV studios.
I do feel a lot of pressure;
I have to make sure I am
constantly performing
so that I create more
opportunities for women.
But, all of a sudden, TV
stations are willing to take
a risk by including women.
It’s been a year of
change, which has
been catalysed by the
#MeToo movement;
long may it continue.

‘WE FORCED
THE COUNTRY
TO RECKON
WITH ITS
CULTURE’
Ana Maria confronts
Senator Flake
This autumn was dominated by
a debate over Brett Kavanaugh,
a right-wing judge nominated
for the US Supreme Court, then
publicly accused by Dr Christine
Blasey Ford of attempting to
rape her as a teenager. On 28
September, after Senator Jeff
Flake announced he intended to
vote to confirm Kavanaugh (who
denied the allegations), a video
emerged of two women angrily
confronting him in a lift: they
were 39-year-old Ana Maria
Archila, co-director of the
Center for Popular Democracy,
and Maria Gallagher, 23.
Following this, Flake
backtracked, calling for an FBI
investigation before the vote.
Grazia spoke to Archila about
what happened that day and how
the aftermath has affected her.
i’ve been an activist for
almost two decades. When
Kavanaugh was nominated,
my organisation and others
gathered people in Washington
DC to tell their stories about
health care, about needing an abortion or
being an immigrant. When the judiciary
committee started hearings to interview
him, we disrupted them. We wanted to
expose the moral bankruptcy of the process.
Then Dr Blasey Ford’s story came to
light, and the protesters started to share
their stories of sexual assault. It was a way
to accompany her in this very courageous,
scary thing that she was doing by testifying
against him. I had never shared my own
experience of being sexually abused by a
teenage boy when I was five. The Monday
before the judiciary vote was planned, I
joined a protest in front of Senator Flake’s
office, and that was the moment I told my
story. It was incredibly painful.
On the Saturday, I went to the Senate
Building. I didn’t know Maria Gallagher
– she was joining the protest for the first
time. An organiser told her, ‘Grab two
people and go to Senator Flake’s office.’ So
we ended up together. We got to Flake’s
office and there were reporters in front,
who told us he’d just put out a statement
announcing that he would vote to confirm
Kavanaugh. Maria and I were despondent.
When he walked out of his office, we
followed him.
I had spent many days listening to
women sharing every detail of their sexual
assault – it was that energy that fed the

The US President
has been busy airing his
views on Twitter again…
On Michael Wolff, author
of Fire And Fury: Inside
The Trump White House…
‘So much Fake News is being

to get it right, or correct it when
they are wrong. They promote

deranged author, who knowingly
writes false information. The
Mainstream Media is crazed that

interaction. I said to him, ‘Just a few days
ago, I was in front of your office telling
my story because I recognise myself in
Dr Blasey Ford. You have children, I have
children. How can you install someone
who is accused of sexual assault?’ I wanted
him to feel the gravity of his responsibility.
I could read in his face so much shame,
and his difficulty in looking at us was very
obvious – he kept trying to press the
button of the elevator to close the door.
Maria said: ‘Look at me. Do not look away
– tell me that my story didn’t happen and
it doesn’t matter. Tell me that you are still
going to put men like that in power.’ When
he later called for an FBI investigation, I
was shocked. Politicians usually don’t go
back on whatever deal they have made.
I realised that my parents were going to
find out about my own assault, so I texted
my father, ‘You are going to hear something
in the news about my experience of sexual
violence and I want you to know I am OK.’
What had kept me from telling them this
for more than 30 years was a fear he would
feel responsible. He texted back, ‘I’m sorry
I was not able to protect you.’ But I told
him: ‘It’s not your fault and it’s not my
fault, and I feel supported by you.’
It was so painful to figure out how to
protect myself in the middle of the
whirlwind. But I had become part of this
community of courageous people who had
been telling their stories. I understood that
my story is not that important – what’s
relevant is that we have a culture that
enables sexual violence. Let’s force
ourselves to stare at that mirror and ask
ourselves, ‘Is this who we want to be?’
Kavanaugh was confirmed to the
Supreme Court on 6 October. I only regret
we didn’t pressure every senator who voted
for him to the same extent. Mostly though, I
feel at peace. This fight was never supposed
to happen – we made it a fight, we forced the
country to reckon with its culture. MTV did
a poll asking Millennials what inspires them
to vote – number one was the Kavanaugh
hearing, number two was watching people
protest. I felt like, ‘OK, here is a generation
of people who are shaped by these
moments. We’ve done something right.’
On the migrant caravan…
‘Every time you see a caravan,
or people coming, or attempting
to come, into our country
illegally, think of and blame the
Democrats for not giving us the
votes to change our pathetic
Immigration Laws! Remember
the midterms! So unfair to those
who come in legally.’
On his own mental state…
‘Actually, throughout my life, my
two greatest assets have been
mental stability and being, like,
really smart. Crooked Hillary
Clinton also played these cards
very hard and, as everyone
knows, went down in flames.
I went from VERY successful
businessman to top TV Star to
President of the United States (on
my first try). I think that would
qualify as not smart, but genius…
and a very stable genius at that!’

Just when the rumours had

In an apparent effort to quell

in a Vogue shoot to celebrate a
decade of Victoria’s fashion label.
However, commentators were quick
to ask why David was missing from
the cover shot. He was forced to say
that his absence was because they
were celebrating ‘Victoria’s 10 years
in fashion’. In a candid interview,
Victoria went on to say that the
furore around her marriage was
‘unfair’ and that the Beckham
brand is stronger than ever. ‘Would
either of us be in the position that
we are in now had we not met and
been together all those years ago?’
she said. ‘We are much stronger,
the six of us, than we would be

This was the year the small

some awe-inspiring – and

characters, writes Paul Flynn.

women who ruled TV

Goddard in Killing Eve;
Thandie Newton nursing
her own withered hand in
Line Of Duty; Issa Rae’s rolled eyes at

man in Bodyguard; Midge’s blowback
from her husband’s infidelity in The
Marvellous Mrs Maisel. Whatever door
had been flung open by Big Little Lies
in 2017 was positively charged through
this year by a succession of stroppy,
complex, amazing and audacious
female characters. Everywhere you
looked in 2018, women were behaving
like superlative badasses on TV.
The show of the year was, of course,
Killing Eve. Written by Fleabag’s Phoebe
Waller-Bridge, it turned every stultifying
convention of screenwriting on its head
to deliver a succession of startling new
archetypes. By making the goodie (Sandra
Oh’s Eve Polastri), the baddie (fashion’s
first lesbian assassin, Villanelle) and the
boss (Fiona Shaw’s skewed chief of spies)
a sea of perfectly aggregated oestrogen, it
was as if the writer set out hellbent to atone
for every beautiful corpse and glamorous
assistant role that sullies TV tradition.
And what a supporting cast she
assembled in her wake. Fiery, lively dames,
directly in tune with their times. Whether
it was Zazie Beetz’s Van telling her lame,
underperforming on/off boyfriend Earn
to sling his hook at the end of Atlanta’s
perfect second season, or Alia Shawkat
devouring the disingenuousness of social
media in the brilliant tale of the missing
college friend, Search Party, the plethora
of recognisable characters drawn from real
life felt like a rush of blood to the head.
And these were just the fictional
characters. Once opened, the floodgates

The Strictly kiss scandal
REBECCA
HUMPHRIES:
W H AT WA S
R E A L LY
BEHIND
MY OPEN
When Seann Walsh was pictured kissing
his Strictly Come Dancing partner Katya
Jones on the front page of a Sunday
newspaper, it seemed like the show’s
infamous curse had struck once again.
But the story moved from tabloid gossip
to a major national talking point when
his (now ex-) girlfriend, actress Rebecca
Humphries, published a powerful open
letter declaring she would not be a victim.
She wrote that she had previously
raised concerns with Seann about his
behaviour with Katya, but he’d responded
by calling her ‘a psycho/nuts/mental. As
he had done countless times throughout
our relationship when I’ve questioned his
inappropriate, hurtful behaviour’.
The letter went viral and sparked a
nationwide debate about gaslighting, with
charity Women’s Aid saying the comedian’s
comments ‘can be a pattern of psychological
abuse’ – and commentators warning that
his continued presence on Strictly set a
‘dangerous precedent’. Then, Rebecca went
to ground. Here, she breaks her silence to
exclusively tell Grazia what happened – and
why she was so surprised by the reaction…

Synagogue shooting
In the deadliest attack on the
Jewish community in US history,
11 people were shot dead at the
Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh.
The mass shooting has followed an
increase in anti-Semitic incidents
across the US in the past year and
a resurgent far right which many
believe has gained momentum
since Trump has been in office.
Serena’s Ramos rage
Back on court after the birth of her
daughter, Serena Williams was
penalised by umpire Carlos Ramos
for receiving signals from her coach
during a match. She accused
him of being a ‘liar’ and
a ‘thief ’, and, after he
deducted points, claimed
sexism and unfair
treatment, eclipsing Naomi
Osaka’s first major title win.
The Khashoggi mystery
Journalist Jamal Khashoggi, an
outspoken critic of Saudi Arabia,
disappeared after entering the Saudi
consulate in Istanbul. Authorities
initially denied all knowledge, then
claimed he’d died in a fist fight,
before finally admitting he’d been
murdered in a ‘rogue’ operation.
Lord exposes knight
MP Peter Hain revealed in the
House of Lords that Topshop
boss Sir Philip Green was the
businessman at the centre of
a sexual and racial harassment
scandal. Sir Philip denied all
allegations, insisting he’d only ever
engaged in ‘banter’ with employees.

strictly come dancing was my
favourite TV show. Until, that is, I was
backstage one Saturday in October and
found out that my boyfriend, Seann Walsh,
had been seen kissing his dance partner,
Katya Jones, earlier in the week.
I went straight back to the flat we
shared, packed a suitcase and our cat, and
ordered a taxi to take me to my friend’s
house. I never went back: it was
immediately clear that the life I thought
we’d had together had been false.
The next morning, pictures of them
were splashed across the front pages. My
phone didn’t stop ringing, with family –
and even friends I hadn’t spoken to in years
– calling me. They all told me what had
happened was unacceptable – which
helped because, without them, I might
never have understood that.
That weekend, it felt as though there
were a lot of opportunities for me to
be shown respect, but Seann hadn’t
apologised, and I realised I had to claim
that respect for myself. So I sat with two
friends and a bottle of wine, drafting and
redrafting the open letter that I eventually
posted. I wanted to take control of my
own narrative and present a clear version
of myself, instead of being labelled as
something I wasn’t. I am smart, I have a
sense of humour and I am down to earth.
Even as we sat there with that bottle
of wine, we told each other that probably
only 50 people would retweet it. But I
knew I’d done the right thing as soon as the
responses starting coming in. People really
wanted to share similar situations to mine.
Someone told me that she had left her
boyfriend as a result of what I had written.
Others said it made them realise that their
relationship wasn’t good enough. I made
a point of replying to every single person.
All I wanted to show was that someone
questioning your mental state to defend
their wrong choices is not acceptable.
I had told Seann I was worried about
what was going on, but I believed him
when he said that nothing was happening.
I believed him that I was mental, and if
the whole thing hadn’t happened, I would
have gone on thinking that I was just
a jealous, insecure person.
If you told me a year ago that this would
happen to me, I’d have said it would destroy
me. That I wouldn’t have been able to cope
with the abandonment from someone who
was really important to me. But I have
never once felt humiliated from it.
There were people who told me, as a
young actress, not to say what I did. And
others who have said of Seann’s actions,
‘Haven’t you ever been drunk and made a
mistake?’ This was never about destroying
anyone. But society is evolving, and there
are questions about the parameters of
relationships that I’m glad have been raised.
Seann and I haven’t stayed in touch – and
we won’t ever be in contact again. The way
our relationship ended was such that I’ll
never be able to WhatsApp him. There’s a
wall between us, and that’s been really
important. I am getting on with things but I
do know that, when it comes to dating, it
will be tricky at best to trust anyone again.
Still, if it takes seeing a therapist to help me
learn how to, I’ll do it; I’d rather find a way
through this and be able to live my life again.
I haven’t forgiven Seann yet, but I hope that,
one day, I’ll get to a place where I can.
I loved Strictly, but I can’t watch it now.
Mind you, I’ve still got RuPaul’s Drag
Race. At least Seann can never go on that…

theresa may ended 2018 as she lived it
– fighting for her political life. Just two days
before Parliament broke up for Christmas,
the Prime Minister faced a no confidence
vote among her own MPs. At 9pm
(12 December) – with half the British
media camped out on the green outside
Westminster – the results of the three-hour
vote came in: 200 in favour and 117
expressing no confidence in her leadership.
With the majority in favour, Mrs May
was still PM and it was back on with the
show. First thing the next day, she was in
Brussels trying to persuade EU officials
to make further concessions.
Mrs May’s supporters say she has
80
handled this Brexit year from hell with
dignity and super-human persistence. Her
critics see her as stubborn and tin-eared.
Certainly, she has had to develop a thick
skin. Having spent the early months of her
leadership playing her cards close to her
chest, the Prime Minister published her
Chequers Plan in July, proposing a
‘principled, pragmatic and ambitious future
partnership between the UK and the EU’.
It pleased no one. Ministers summoned
to her country residence of Chequers were
told they could call a minicab if they
wished to reject the plan. Two, Foreign
Secretary Boris Johnson and Brexit
Secretary David Davis, stayed in Cabinet
only long enough to have their official
drivers take them home.
Chequers was openly mocked at an EU
summit in Salzburg in September; a photo
of Mrs May and EU Council President
Donald Tusk beside a dessert tray was
posted to his Instagram with the words: ‘A
piece of cake, perhaps? Sorry, no cherries.’
By the time of the Conservative
conference in October, Mrs May seemed
to have decided that if she didn’t laugh
she’d cry. She literally danced on to the
stage, a reference to the much-ridiculed jig
she’d performed during a trip to Africa.
But while the public seemed to warm
to this humbler PM, the sense that the

After spending seven months

sentenced to life for spying, the
British academic was finally freed

Government had lost control of Brexit
was never far away.
In November, Mrs May claimed she
had achieved the impossible, producing
a 500-page ‘Withdrawal Agreement’
negotiated with the EU. But celebrations
were short-lived when more ministers
resigned and it became clear MPs would
not back the deal, forcing her to delay
the formal vote to approve it. And so
now it’s back to the drawing-board.
Through it all, the Prime Minister
has maintained her calm exterior:
infuriating some by her refusal to bend,
winning admiration from others inspired
by her resilience.
The one comfort Mrs May can
take from the confidence vote is that
rebels are now barred from mounting
another leadership challenge for a year.
It won’t protect her for long.
To win over wavering MPs ahead
of the confidence vote, Mrs May was
forced to promise she would stand
down before the next election. The
news was greeted with tears from
loyalists but others celebrated: she will
now come under pressure to go as soon
as Brexit is out of the way in March.
Then again, the Prime Minister’s
political obituary has been written
many times before.

Create a bespoke piece of arm candy – and reflect
your unique style – by designing your own Swatch
SINCE IT burst on to our radar in 1983,
the Swatch watch has become a fashion
icon, thanks to its bold, graphic designs
and aesthetically pleasing clean lines. And
now the Swiss watchmaker has taken an
inclusive approach to its design. With
Swatch x You, you can create your own
bespoke design, a little piece of art for
your wrist. Here at Grazia, we always
fancy ourselves as designers, so we asked
Arianna Chatzidakis, from our digital
team, to create her dream arm candy – seen
here. ‘I love animal print, so that was my
starting point,’ says Arianna. ‘Then I played
with the colour combinations until I got a
design that was true to my style. I was
advised through the whole process by a
Swatch expert, so it was fun rather than
daunting.’ A dedicated configurator will
walk you through the design steps, helping
you create a unique look from a wide range
of prints inspired by nature, street art and
geometric shapes. Once you’ve designed
the strap, you simply choose a colour
for your mechanism and finish with an
extra-special touch – a message on the
back casing. Which also makes the
customisable Swatch a perfect gift with that
personal touch. Hurry, and design your
watch to be in time for Christmas!
Swatch X You is available at shop.swatch.

WHEN LADY GAGA attended the
Venice Film Festival in August, walking
the red carpet for the worldwide premiere
of A Star Is Born, there was no meat
dress. Rather, there was a different kind
of showstopper: an haute couture,
bubblegum pink Valentino ballgown.
Elegant, epic, extravagant. This melodrama
of tulle and feathers was pure fantasy, of
the unmistakably Hollywood variety.
So had the ultimate provocateur gone
polished? It certainly looked like it. What
followed was a succession of stellar red
carpet looks from Lady Gaga for the film’s
press tour: silver Givenchy couture,
princessy Dior tulle, white Victoria
Beckham worthy of Marilyn Monroe.
The gospel according to Gaga? Glamour
is back. But these scene-stealing, divaworthy looks also marked the beginning of
something bigger. Lady Gaga, movie star.
‘I love how Gaga keeps reinventing
herself for each stage of her career and it’s
exciting to see her explore her capabilities
as an actress,’ says Browns womenswear
buying director Ida Petersson. ‘This is a
woman with a plan! Everything she does is
planned to a T, including her wardrobe.’
But while she might have gone fullthrottle glam, Gaga’s outré, experimental
spirit lives on (note the Elizabethan
Alexander McQueen gown or the black
widow veil for an Armani Privé look). She’s
a woman who knows how to keep things
interesting. ‘There is a sense of timelessness
surrounding her style, the essence of old
Hollywood glamour offset with a modern
twist, giving her a unique edge,’ notes
Tamara Ralph of Ralph & Russo, whose
ruffled black dress Gaga topped off with a
jaunty hat at the Toronto Film Festival.
‘Gaga adds the perfect amount of drama to
her looks that makes them current and also
her own,’ says stylist Avigail Collins.
What makes Gaga’s look so powerful
is that she is unapologetically dressing
for herself. Attending the 25th Women
in Hollywood celebration, in a rallying
cry for empowerment, she eschewed a dress
for an XXL Marc Jacobs suit. ‘This was
an oversized men’s suit made for a woman.
Not a gown,’ she said. ‘In this suit, I felt
like me today. In this suit, I felt the truth
of who I am well up in my gut’.
With awards season lurching into action
in January and Gaga hotly tipped for an
Oscar, as well as her marriage to Christian
Carino next year (now that’s a dress we
can’t wait to see), the spotlight doesn’t
show any sign of waning. Like all good
performers, she’s left her audience wanting
more. A Star Is Born? She’s already arrived.
We went
gaga for…

It’s 15 years since Sienna Miller made us

Kitzbühel, Austria
This Alpine ski town not far from
Innsbruck is considered one of
the loveliest in Europe, known
for its authentic Tyrolean
atmosphere and 16th-century
city walls. Inside, it’s all cobbled
streets and brightly-coloured
buildings housing chi-chi
boutiques, cosy cafés and lively
restaurants; beyond are the jagged
peaks of the snow-covered
Wilder Kaiser Mountains –
and some fabulous skiing.

TRIP THE
LIGHT
FANTASTIC
For the ultimate winter adventure, head north
to the subarctic wilderness of Finland’s Lapland and
seek out the mesmerising Northern Lights
THE LIGHTS Also known as Aurora
Borealis, the Northern Lights are a
bucket-list travel experience made even
more special as there is no guarantee they
will actually appear. A naturally occurring
light display, caused by collisions between
electrically charged particles from the sun
that enter the earth’s atmosphere, they only
appear in the sky on clear nights when there
is plenty of solar activity. If you’re one of the
lucky ones, they can come out to play for up
to two hours, dancing their way across the
sky like a bright ethereal beam of green
light (they can also be orange, purple and
many shades of red, pink, blue and yellow)
that ripples across the horizon, merging
and then tearing apart, lighting up the
countryside below. It’s an awesome sight.
SNOWMOBILES AND SLEIGHS The
Northern Lights aren’t the only attraction
114
of Finnish Lapland – the countryside is
incredibly beautiful too, a vast expanse filled
with great lakes and frozen forests, covered in
a snowy blanket that glistens in the sun like a
thousand diamonds. There are lots of ways to
see it. For adrenalin-pumping fun, pull on a
helmet and roar off through the countryside
on a snowmobile, following a guide through
the pine forest and across a frozen lake. Or go
for a reindeer ride and let these enchanting
animals trot you through the forest in a
blanket-strewn sleigh – utterly magical.
MUSH! As night falls, it’s time for a husky
ride. As you approach, the dogs howl with
excitement – they are bred to run and ready
to be cut loose. They’re beautiful animals,
wolf-like, with piercing blue eyes and soft fur
coats. Each sledge is pulled by six dogs. You
stand on narrow wooden slats at the back of
the sledge and hold tight as you shoot off into
the forest. The huskies are fast, reaching
speeds up to 20km an hour (the sledge is
fitted with a foot break that you tread on
when you need to slow down). Small groups
of around ten sledges whizz off in a line across
the moonlit lake and along a narrow track that
twists and turns through the tall pine trees.
The exhilarating ride lasts about 40 minutes
and, if you’re lucky, you might catch a glimpse
of the Aurora shining in the sky above you.

WHERE TO STAY Located in the heart of
EAT Outdoor activities in the cold
are hungry work and the hotel’s main
restaurant dishes up buffet-style meals
for breakfast, lunch and dinner. In the
morning, feast on creamy porridge, eggs
and the famous Finnish Karelian pie, a
rather interesting rye pastry, stuffed with
rice and cheese; tuck into hearty soups
and salads for lunch; and enjoy rich stew
and potatoes for dinner. Throughout the
day, swing by the lodge for a huge slice of
freshly made chocolate cake and a steaming
mug of hot blueberry juice (sekamehu).
For a completely different experience,
walk through the forest to a huge wooden
wigwam (known as a kota) for dinner. Take
a seat at the shared table while the chefs
cook over a huge fire pit that also warms
the hut. If you like your cocktails chilled,
wrap up and enjoy a drink in the Ice Bar.
Built into a huge neon-lit igloo, choose
from a vodka martini or the local firewater,
Jaloviina – the perfect start to the evening.
THE LOWDOWN The best time to go is
January to March, as spring approaches.
Still, Lapland is very cold (think -12°C
at night; about 5°C in the day), so pack
for maximum warmth and do include
thermals. For the evening, it’s all about
wrapping up as much as possible, although
the hotel will provide you with extrainsulated clothing when you go out to
watch for the lights. If it’s sunny in the day,
you’ll need sunscreen and good sunglasses.
To photograph the lights, the best way is
to use a slow exposure on an SLR with a
tripod. If you don’t have this, download the
Northern Lights Photo Taker app for 99p.
It will help you capture a sense of what you
see. And for the most up-to-date Aurora
spotting info, the free My Aurora Forecast
app will let you know the percentage
chance of seeing the lights every night.
Artisan Travel’s Torassieppi Tailor Made
holiday has departures throughout January
to April with prices starting from £955pp
(two sharing), including flights (from
London), transfers, three nights’ half-board
hotel accommodation, and cold weather
clothing for the duration. An additional
night in an Aurora Dome can be added
from £173pp. All guided activities are
optional and priced as extra, such as the
Panorama Snowmobile Safari from £96pp,
Husky Aurora Adventure from £125pp,
and Reindeer Aurora Experience from
£109pp. For more information and
booking, go to artisantravel.co.uk.
WORDS: JOHN GREGORY-SMITH. PHOTOS: MATT ROBINSON, HARRINIVA HOTELS
AND SAFARIS, MARKO JUNTTILA, JUHO KUVA, THOMAS KAST
the Finnish wilderness, Torassieppi is a
small hotel known for its isolated location
on the shores of a frozen lake. There’s little
light pollution, giving you a great chance
of seeing the Northern Lights.
The hotel is made up of a scattering of
wooden cabins nestled into the pine forest
that line the shores of the lake. If you make
one of the cosy cabins home for a few days,
there are loads of activities to keep you
busy during the day, before you spend the
night watching for the Lights. Each cabin
has a small living area to relax in and plenty
of space to hang your winter gear.
But also book a night in one of the
glamping-style Aurora Domes. Made of
insulated canvas, one side of the dome tent
faces out over the frozen lake. There’s a
wood-burning stove for a lovely fireside glow
and a huge double bed strewn with fluffy
pillows and chic throws that’s the perfect place
from which to take in the snowy scenery.
Complete with rustic restaurant and
roaring fire, the main lodge is the hotel’s
hub where guests meet to begin all the
winter activities and for a glass of wine and
dinner in the evening. And of course there’s
the sauna where you can unwind after a
long day in the wilderness.
A few miles away, the more formal sister
hotel, Jeris, has a year-round plunge pool
cut into the side of the lake, where intrepid
visitors can hop in for a bracing dip before
heating up under a hot shower.

THE FAMILY FAVOURITE...
LES MISÉRABLES
Ahead of her taking over as the Queen in
the next series of The Crown, Christmas
2018 has officially turned into Olivia

joined by Lily Collins and Dominic West
in a tunes-free version, going back to the

THE TIME TRAVELLER...
DOCTOR WHO
Firstly: Jodie Whittaker. What a year.
Smashing the previous ratings slump of
our illustrious timelord into oblivion,
the all new woman Doctor arrived dressed
as Mork and Mindy and promptly got
into bother for being ‘too PC’. Like that’s a
problem? The genial success of Whittaker’s
Doctor era is a story of charm and good
will itself. Eschewing the traditional
Christmas Day outing, they’ve opted
for a New Year’s Day special, which
feels suitably, subtly rule-breaking, in
common with the good Doctor herself.

TWIST The twist sequence gently
THE NEW WAY
TO UNWIND
warms your spine before leading
to a sequence of twists with a
similar action to yoga poses such as
Ardha Matsyendrasana (Half Lord
of the Fishes), which is good for
stimulating your liver, kidneys and
digestive system, stretching your
shoulders and hips, as well as general
relief from fatigue, sciatica and
backache.
The perfect way to bring
the benefits of yoga into
your day...
FLOW This progressive flowing
sequence encourages the spine to
move freely along its length. Similar
effects in yoga are achieved by
alternating Cat and Cow stretches,
in poses such as Bhujangasana
(Cobra), benefits include stretching
your back and front torso and neck,
gently massaging and stretching
your spine, and stimulating your
belly organs.
ENERGISE In yoga, backbends are fantastic for boosting energy,
reducing anxiety and stimulating digestion, as well as stretching the
chest, neck and spine. The Energise sequence takes you through a series
of back-arching positions which simulate yoga backbends such as
Ustrasana (Camel Pose), Setu Bandha Sarvangasana (Bridge Pose) and
Urdhva Hastasana (Upward Salute).
WHETHER you struggle to find time or motivation to get to
the studio, or have always fancied trying yoga but are worried
it will be too difficult, or love your gym work out but struggle
to stretch your back afterwards, or simply want a bit of mindful
downtime to relax and unwind? Now there’s a new yoga-tech
product perfect for you.
Inspired by yoga stretching and positions, the new
HoMedics STRETCH Back Stretching Mat is pre-programmed
with four sequences: energise, flow, stretch and twist. Using
the simple, handheld control, every treatment intensity can be
customised to suit your flexibility.
STRETCH is for all, yoga-less and yoga lovers alike, you
can combine your treatments with deep, slow breathing to
unlock and enhance your relaxation.
There are many benefits of limbering up for the day ahead.
It can help you feel livelier, more invigorated and less stressed.
STRETCH guides you through a range of sequences, delivering
the many benefits of calm and controlled stretching without
leaving your mat. Every treatment has been designed by our
yoga pro, the air chambers inflate gently to encourage your
back, from lumbar to shoulders, to stretch, release and relax.
HoMedics STRETCH is available now from
homedics.co.uk/stretch, where Grazia readers can enjoy this
unique offer using GRAZIA25 for 25% off.

CARE IN THE COMMUNIT Y
Having read ‘I felt burnt out,
rubbish at my job and was
worried I was going to be struck
off ’ (26 Nov) about the mental
health problems afflicting junior
doctors, it really hit home about
the poignant issue of who is
caring for the carers? Ensuring the wellbeing of our (junior)
doctors should be at the fore of the NHS’s concerns, not an
afterthought. Raising awareness and creating support groups
is a great start, but only manages the issue; to make sustainable
impact and change it’s imperative we look at the cause and
come together to make that change. Fleur
E NJOY THE VIE W
I pounced on my copy of
Grazia as usual and the first
thing I read was Grazia View.
What a wonderfully refreshing
opinion: let’s all take a step
back and still enjoy Christmas
and all its great joys, but also
remember that we should try to
be content with what we have.
It seemed so pertinent at this
time of year. After all, at crucial
moments we think of family
and friends, not what we got
for various Christmases. Ruth
THE BOT TOM LINE
I feel really passionately about
plus-size clothes, being a
6ft tall, size 22-24 woman.
Underwear shopping is awful
as I can never find pretty,
matching lingerie. So I read
How Lingerie Got Inclusive
(10 Dec) with interest. And
although it’s great that so many
companies are increasing their
range of bra sizes, to be truly
inclusive they also need to be
looking at knickers. With the
exception of Rihanna’s Fenty
Savage range, none of them
went above a size 20. Meaning
I still don’t get to buy beautiful
undies. Katie
It’s with huge relief that I
recognise how the skinny
lingerie model is becoming
less of a rule and just one
body shape among a sea of
possibilities. It helps the girls
of now and the future that all
their bodies are seen as normal.
But breasts are still expected to
conform to certain ‘rules’.
Where are the asymmetrical
breasts (incredibly common),
the visible nipples, the nipples
that point down? Breasts are
still expected to be even and
round and high. Speak to
Chidera Eggerue about her
fantastic #saggyboobsmatter.
We’ve got a way to go but I
believe we can get there one
day. Name witheld

Lloyd Russell-Moyle
makes off with the
golden mace (above)
capture the nation’s mood during the
Brexit shambles. ‘OK, one of my goals for
2019 is to understand UK politics,’ she
tweeted last week. ‘I read and read and try
and learn but my brain cannot grasp it.’
To which the entire internet said: you’re
not alone. ‘Don’t worry, we can’t grasp
it either,’ comedian Sue Perkins chimed
in. ‘Chrissy T speaking for the whole of
UK there,’ added another user, while one
disgruntled Twitter commentator said,
‘I’m doing a PhD on it and this is how
I feel 90% of the time.’
Chrissy was then intrigued by Labour
MP Lloyd Russell-Moyle grabbing the
mace in the House of Commons (it
represents the authority invested in
Parliament by the crown). The MP picked
up the ceremonial 5ft golden rod in protest
after Theresa May postponed the vote on
her Brexit deal, but was forced to give it
back by a woman with a sword.
‘What’s the point of being able to take the
giant gold thing if the lady with the sword
can just stop you and make you put it back?’
asked Chrissy, who also said she thought
UK politics was ‘harder to understand’
than video game ‘Super Smash Bros’.
We hear you, Chrissy.
