UPSKIRTING BILL IS POLITICS AT ITS BEST
It was a week that shattered what little faith we had
left in the political system: Westminster reached its
shambles summit and with no solution for Brexit
in sight, as 432 MPs voted against Theresa May?s
withdrawal agreement (see page 16). Meanwhile, the
rest of us looked on bewildered and started to wonder if
stockpiling chickpeas might be a good idea. But in the
midst of the madness, a glimpse of politics at its best
emerged: Gina Martin?s bill to make ?upskirting?
a crime passed its final stage. The 27-year-old started
campaigning in 2017 after a man at a festival took a photo
up her skirt and sent it to his friends. Now, offenders
who act similarly can face up to two years in jail.
Her win has restored our faith in Parliament.

and independent thought isn?t how they
roll. And there?s also something inherentlyannoying-going-on-funny about those who
call themselves vegan, but are lying. (You
know they are; the last time you went out
for dinner, they kept saying: ?Mmmmm!
The vegan cheese topping on this pizza is
DELISH!?, then shushing you when you
pointed out it was, in fact, chicken.)
There?s something pitiful about those
who, like Ms Flat-Hunter, above, don?t
realise their veganism just isn?t terribly
interesting, isn?t equivalent to a GSOH,
a scandalous past, a great haircut, a
substantial claim to the throne. And there is
something utterly unacceptable about the
ones who leverage veganism as evidence of
moral superiority, an excuse for bullying bad
behaviour. Who storm your steakhouse; who
gaze damningly at you as you bite into an egg
sandwich, then say (as a vegan sister-in-law
did to a friend): ?You know that?s a chicken?s
period?? Who get haughty when your kids
offer them birthday cake (?I?m actually vegan,
yeah??), and assume the only reason you
aren?t doing what they?re doing ? following
the one true vegan path ? is because you
are stupid and ignorant and waiting for
them to show you a gruesome video on
their phone, then lead you toward the light
(/away from the dairy). ?Vegan-holes? I call
them, the ranks of the truly righteous, as
unbending, dogmatic and censorious as
anyone who ever believed life is black and
white, people are either good or bad, and
they are the future, while you are doomed.
But I don?t mind the other vegans. The
other vegans are fine.
I wasn?t
going to be mean
about vegans any
more, because
UPS
vegan-hatin? is lazy and clich閐 and
?Vegan-uary? sounds like it might have
something to do with vaginas, not a word
I enjoy, so why would I type it? But then
I saw an ad, posted online by a woman
looking for a flat, in which she specified
her age, employment status and her
veganism, because? I dunno. She believed
it might give her an edge, in the dog-eathummus world of flat-hunting? I realised
I couldn?t resist vegan-bashing after all.
I have no beef with the vegan lifestyle, in
and of itself. As long as it?s not masking an
eating disorder, which it sometimes does,
or destabilising entire farming economies
with its sudden dramatically increased
demand for avocados, which it sometimes
can? Otherwise: why would I care if a
person chooses to forsake bacon in favour
of chickpeas, steak for? Ummm? What
else do that lot eat? (Anyone?)
I mean, sure, there?s something
inherently annoying about the January
Come Lately vegan variant, doing it

SIENNA?S FRESH
START WITH ?SON

ROYALTY?
IF 2018 WAS the year that most
1
12
of the A-list dated someone from
the SNL cast (see Ariana Grande,
Scarlett Johansson and Emma
Stone), 2019 might go down as
the year of the gallerist boyfriend.
Hot on the heels of Jennifer
Lawrence?s romance with New
York gallery director Cooke
Maroney, Sienna Miller last week
confirmed she is dating Lucas Zwirner,
27, whose father owns the David Zwirner
gallery in New York (his grandfather was
also a gallerist). Lucas, who went to Yale,
works for his father and heads up the
family gallery?s books department.
The pair were last week pictured
walking around New York together,
close to the public library, while taking
Sienna?s dog for a walk. According to
friends, the relationship has been going
on ?for a few months?, but she has, until
now, managed to keep it a secret. The
pair are already getting serious: Sienna
has apparently introduced Lucas to her
????? ??????????? ?????? "What's News" VK.COM/WSNWS
St y le in a
cold c lim a
daughter Marlowe, six, whose father
is her ex-fianc�, actor Tom Sturridge.
?She and Lucas started dating a few
months ago and her friends think he?s
great,? said a source in New York. ?Sienna
introducing him to Marlowe wouldn?t
have happened if it wasn?t fairly serious.?
Sienna, 37, Lucas and Tom, 33, who she
split from in 2015, are said to get on well
and regularly hang out together. Just last
month, Sienna reportedly took Lucas as
her plus-one to Tom?s birthday party, while
all three of them are known to have had
dinner together in New York. In 2017,
Sienna revealed that she and Tom are
?best friends? and still try to do bedtime
together every day with Marlowe.
The relationship with Lucas marks
a new start for Sienna. It?s the first time
she?s gone public with someone since
director Bennett Miller, 52, who she
was linked to in 2016 after the couple
attended Wimbledon together (it?s not
known exactly when they split).
So who is Lucas? According to a New
York insider, he is the ?son of art-world
royalty: his grandfather revolutionised
the Cologne art scene in the ?60s and his
family gallery is one of the most important
in New York. Lucas has big shoes to fill.?
A friend also told Grazia, ?In person,
Lucas is charming, very polite, wellmannered and witty. Unlike a lot of
?children of ?, he comes across not as
entitled, but as intelligent and thoughtful.
He talks about his family and projects in
the gallery, and he?s really down to earth.
People are impressed by his attitude.?
It comes over two years after Sienna
relocated to New York, where she was
born, and where she has enrolled Marlowe
in a school. Back then, she revealed that
she and Tom were living together in the
West Village, despite having already
broken up, saying, ?I know, it?s very
modern. We do everything together and
I?m very lucky to have managed to retain
that.? They no longer share a home, but
are regularly seen together in the city.
?Lucas is a really private person, and
that?s thought to be part of the appeal
to Sienna,? added a source. ?He?s a top
bachelor in New York, but people don?t
seem to care that they?re dating ? in fact,
very few knew about it. He has grown up
around the art world and celebrity, and is
completely sensitive about the need to be
discreet. Sienna?s friends are all behind it
? they already think he?s great.?

POOR WINTER gets a bad rap,
doesn?t it? While we all jubilantly raise
a glass of ros� when summer gets here,
we moan and wince when winter arrives.
And, after a stop-start tease, last week the
Met Office issued warnings that we?re in
the midst of the first properly cold snap.
But before you run for cover, consider
this: ?bad? weather is just a matter of
perspective and preparation. To borrow
the words of feted fell-walker Alfred
Wainwright, there?s no such thing as bad
weather, only unsuitable clothing.
So what exactly is suitable clothing?
Insulating layers are a no-brainer.
Uniqlo?s puffers have a fiercely loyal
following who couldn?t get through
January without them (see also the
Heat Tech range of thermal layers).
Or how about Ugg boots? They are
back (just ask Rihanna, who was
spotted wearing them last week), and
your feet just hoorayed at that news.
Plus, this is the season for knits ? from
chunky roll necks to fine cashmere
sweaters ? to really prove their worth.
Suitable winter dressing needn?t
mean putting your style on ice, either.
A headscarf isn?t just a surprising twist
on the essential hat, it?s also an easy way
to tap into S/S ?19 now. Cowboy boots,
meanwhile, look great teamed with
summery boho dresses of course, but they
also have mileage for work now when worn
under a tailored trouser or midiskirt.
Indeed, the key to really nailing your
style this January is to distinguish between
your work-week winter wardrobe and
weekend winter wardrobe. For off-duty,
think rugged, up-for-anything separates
like puffer gilets and slouchy hoodies in
vibrant shades that add a blast of colour
to even the dreariest days. The Monday to
Friday look can prove trickier, as overzealous office heating or a busy commute
can mean that you could be navigating

SO HOW
DID THERESA
MAY SURVIVE
WESTMINSTER?S
WEIRDEST
WEEK?
????? ??????????? ?????? "What's News" VK.COM/WSNWS
1 0 H OT_STORIES
Theresa May has taken bruising after bruising over Brexit, yet last week proved
she?s powering on regardless. But will her resolve be enough, asks Gaby Hinsliff
IF YOU THINK you?ve had a hard day
at the office, then thank your lucky stars
you?re not Theresa May. Last week, the
Prime Minister suffered the biggest defeat
in parliamentary history over her Brexit
deal, before fighting off a vote of no
confidence in her ability to lead the country
less than 24 hours later. It doesn?t really get
worse than this for a Prime Minister, with
MPs queuing up to pour scorn on her
efforts. Yet May has betrayed not a flicker
of emotion in circumstances that would
reduce most of us to a sobbing heap.
And that will be true even behind closed
doors, says her former press secretary Katie
Perrior. ?Things don?t really get to her in
the way they get to other people,? she says.
?She doesn?t seek the approval of others
when she feels she?s doing something for
the common good. Her attitude is, ?Right,
it?s my job to be businesslike about this.?
I?ve never seen her crumple in a heap, she?d
just brush it off and say, ?That?s politics.?
She?ll regroup very quickly.? Indeed, May?s
one indulgence after a tough day is a
whisky, usually poured by her husband
Philip, who was watching protectively
over her from the Commons gallery
during the Brexit vote.
But while we know May can do strong,
the question is whether she can do flexible.
Could the refusal to crumble under
pressure that has got her through the
last two years now be stopping her from
finding a Brexit compromise everyone can
live with? As the Labour Deputy Leader
Tom Watson put it, nobody doubts her
determination, but too much of it?s a bad
thing: ?She?s too set in her ways, too aloof
to lead. She lacks the imagination and
agility to bring people with her.?
Friends say what?s driving May forward,
even when the situation looks hopeless, is
that she doesn?t see anyone capable of
doing better. ?She?ll feel there?s nobody
around she really wants to hand the baton
over to,? says one. ?She sees it as her duty to
find a way through.?
To help cope with the stress, she blocks
out time each week in her diary for the
gym ? she has a trainer who focuses on
weights and heavy resistance, as if she
hasn?t had enough of the latter in politics
? and for church on Sundays. Perrior says
sticking to the routine no matter what is as
much about steadying the nation?s nerves
as her own: ?It?s about showing that she?s
keeping the show on the road.?
But all that will be for nothing if May
can?t urgently find a deal on Brexit. Talking
a Parliament full of sworn political enemies
into swallowing their collective pride and
compromising is a big ask, especially after
Jeremy Corbyn asked Labour MPs not to
negotiate with her unless she rules out a
?no deal? exit from the EU.
But it?s perhaps especially tough for a
woman who famously doesn?t have great
people skills, and plays her cards so close to
her chest that even her Cabinet sometimes
aren?t sure what she wants. Theresa May
has battled this far against the odds but if
she wants to get through this latest crisis,
then ironically she might have to be a bit
less ?Theresa May? about it. 17

A ?people?s
vote? rally in
Parliament
Square last
Tuesday
Jess Phillips, Labour MP for
Birmingham Yardley, voted
Remain in the referendum
and last week voted against
Theresa May?s Brexit deal.
?Before the 8pm vote, my youngest son,
who?s 10, kicked up a real fuss about
me going back to Westminster. He?s not
normally like that, but he kept saying he
didn?t want me to go. I think he?s picked
up on the fact that tensions are high
around Brexit and I?ve been in London
more than usual.
?Everyone was interested in the vote.
I had a lot of friends and even people I
haven?t spoken to for years texting saying
?good luck? and ?it?s not easy?. After the
vote, the atmosphere inside Parliament
felt heightened and frenetic, with every
corridor full. I went for dinner that
evening with seven MPs in the Parliament
restaurant so we could relax a bit before
heading out into the protests. We?ve all got
wildly differing views, but we sat around
discussing everything civilly. We need to
put an end to people getting their points
across by slagging each other off ?
everyone needs to learn to listen.
?What should happen now is for literally
every member of Parliament to clear their
diaries and sit down with people with
different opinions to them, so we can try
and thrash out a solution. If I was Theresa
May, I would cancel all the business of the
House for the week. It?s the only way to
move forward and I?ve no idea why it
hasn?t happened yet.
?It?s a strange time to be an MP.?
?Parliament felt
hostile and toxic?
Two MPs from opposite sides of the House reveal
what it was like to be part of last week?s historic vote
Priti Patel is the Conservative
MP for Witham. She voted
Leave in the referendum and
against the Government
withdrawal agreement.
?The atmosphere was tense and distressing
last week. It felt hostile and toxic;
disappointment was certainly in the air.
Conservative MPs who are very loyal felt
torn about being put in this awful position
of having to vote against their Government.
?Parliament was a complete circus on
Tuesday: you couldn?t move for TV crews
and people doing interviews. It was quite
unpleasant, almost like being surrounded
by white noise. I was in the Brexit debate in
Parliament until 1.45am the night before so
I was desperate to get home and left around
10pm. I had a bath and went to bed; the last
thing I wanted to do was turn on the TV.
?The weeks leading up to this vote have
been absolutely awful. I join many in
despairing that my own Conservative
Government has got itself into this shambolic
position. It makes me feel distraught to see the
inept way in which we are still in this situation
after two years of supposed negotiation.
This could have been avoided if we had a
Government that could listen and engage.
As for Corbyn, he needs to have the maturity
to be a responsible player in terms of opening
up a dialogue with our Prime Minister.
?My family are very robust and always
say to me, ?You do what you think is right.?
I?ve had a lot of friends getting in touch with
messages of support ? people recognise it?s
very difficult to vote against your party, but
I?m taking a position I feel strongly about.
?Two years ago, 498 MPs voted to
trigger Article 50 on 29 March. Now the
Government needs to up its game and
make sure that happens.?

Meanwhile?
BORIS IS
HOUSE-HUNTING
WITH HIS NEW
GIRLFRIEND
Above and
below: outside
KHU紻WODVWZHHN
Bottom: the photo
of them together
last September
WHEN BORIS JOHNSON announced
he was divorcing his wife of 25 years last
September, his ?friendship? with a young
Tory communications executive was thrust
into the spotlight. Less than six months on, he?s
now said to be besotted with Carrie Symonds,
30, who he apparently follows around ?like
a puppy? and plans to make his third wife.
The couple have attended many private
dinners as an item, hosted soirees at the
flat they now share and spent New Year?s
together at a quiet villa in Greece. If
whispers can be believed, Boris, 54, plans
to announce the relationship publicly at
a Conservative event later this month and
they?re looking at a � flat near Whitehall
to make their new home together.
With Boris widely expected to run for
PM if Theresa May is ousted, a proposal is
not far off, say friends of the couple. They
met in 2012, after Carrie was seconded to
work on his London mayoral re-election
campaign. She swiftly rose to the strategic
role of Conservative communications
chief, impressing seniors with her ability.
Not yet divorced from his second wife
and mother of their four adult children, the
barrister Marina Wheeler, Boris has denied
to friends that his relationship with Carrie
overlapped. But a former colleague let slip
to Grazia that it had allegedly been an open
secret in Westminster, long before photos
of the pair at the Conservative Black and
White Ball sparked widespread speculation.
Those pictures emerged last September, the
day after Boris and Marina announced they
were divorcing ? saying they had separated
months before. Shortly after, Carrie, a
staunch conservationist, left the Tory party
after eight years to lead Bloomberg Media
Group?s ecological initiative.
Today, Carrie is as ?loved up? as Boris, a
friend told Grazia, and has a photo of him
as the wallpaper on her phone. (She is said
to call him ?Bozzie the Bear?, a reference
to the Muppet Fozzie.) ?She has never
made a secret of it with friends, she just
doesn?t want to confess all to the media
yet ? she?s savvy,? says a friend.
Boris was thrown out by Marina (who
herself had become pregnant while he was
still married to his first wife) after two very
public affairs. But this time he is ?genuinely
smitten?, friends insist. ?He is besotted and
speaks about Carrie to close friends like
someone very much in love,? revealed a Tory
insider. Carrie is five years older than Boris?s
daughter, and it is thought none of his
children have met her yet. Blurry tabloid
photos last week show her playfully
pinching his bottom as they enter the house.
?They are genuinely happy together,
Boris is lucky to have her. They have great
fun and a lot in common,? says a friend of
Carrie?s. ?When things settle and they can
be open, she will be very good for his
public image.? Indeed, Boris has boasted of
losing up to 12lbs by cutting out alcohol
and late-night chorizo binges, making him
fighting fit to take on Brexit. Friends say it?s
thanks to Carrie?s influence. The pair are
also embracing each other?s social life, with
Boris as happy to throw exuberant disco
shapes to Abba at Carrie?s 30th birthday as
she is to attend long dinners with ministers
and their wives ? who find her ?great fun?.
Carrie has also become an unlikely
figurehead among women fed up with the
?scarlet woman? clich� that?s hauled out
every time a well-known man gets caught
with his pants down. There have been no
doorstep confessions or lucrative media
deals ? and her social media output on
environmental issues did not falter. She
has quietly aligned herself with several
outspoken women campaigners, and in
September chose to reveal that she had been
a victim of the convicted black cab rapist,
John Worboys, as she fought to overturn
a parole board decision for his release.
According to friends, she has adopted
the nickname ?Flotus?, so sure is she of her
role in getting Boris into Number 10.
Indeed, the exhausted tabloid script of
a younger seductress using an older man?s
bed to ensure her status does not fit in
Carrie?s case. If anything, it could be
Boris who?s lucking out.

JEN CALLS
IN AN
? INTERIORS
THERAPIST?
(Stay with us...)
4
pictured with Liz Hurley in Morocco last
week (prompting furious speculation that
they?re a new item), Grazia learned that his
ex-wife Jennifer Aniston is ?purging? him
from the home they once shared.
According to an LA-based source, Jen,
49, has enlisted the help of an ?interiors
therapist? to remove all trace of Justin from
the $21m mansion they bought in 2011.
?Jen has hired an interiors therapist to
help remove all the emotional and physical
baggage connected to Justin,? the source told
Grazia. ?They?ve been working together for
months so Jen can ?reclaim? the space. She?s
performing cleansing rituals, introducing
new colours and getting rid of anything
significant that was decided on as a couple.?
Interiors therapy may sound far-fetched,
but it?s popular in LA; indeed, Gwyneth
Paltrow has a personal shaman who
declutters her spiritual space and performs
?vibrational wardrobe decluttering? ?
getting rid of any clothes with ?bad vibes?.
Jen and Justin, 47, designed the Bel Air
property together (according to Jen at the
time, the theme was ?sexy but comfortable?).
But when Justin moved out following their
split in February last year, he apparently left
behind a lot of his stuff.
?Jen is increasingly frustrated with Justin
for failing to remove his possessions,? said
our insider. ?She still has his Porsche, a
motorbike and some ?boys? stuff ? that
she?s sick of seeing. Justin liked to collect
unusual antiques, such as vintage medical
instruments and oddball movie
memorabilia. She entertained it all while
they were together, but now that Justin?s
out of her life, Jen wants his stuff gone too.?
Last month, Grazia reported that
Jennifer had also sought the help of LA
dating guru Julie Ferman, who?s end
goal is to find a client?s perfect match.
Jennifer?s dating life since their
divorce has been kept under the
radar, while Justin has been linked
to Emma Stone and Laura Harrier.
?Getting a therapist for the
home was all about releasing the
past from the present living situation,?
added the source. ?Jen loved the idea
and feels as though she has her own
place again. She?s moved on.?

AS THE WORLD DOES
THE 10-YEAR CHALLENGE?
HERE?S GRAZIA?S VERSION
WORDS: LYNN ENRIGHT.
PHOTOS: CAMERA PRESS, GETTY, SHUTTERSTOCK, BACKGRID
AROUND THE MIDDLE of last week,
social media was suddenly awash with
pictures of people who looked a lot like
your friends and acquaintances but were
somehow different? Their brows were less
defined; their cheeks were less highlighted.
They wore American Apparel leggings.
They were a decade younger. They were,
in fact, your friends and acquaintances,
as photographed in 2009.
As the #10YearChallenge took hold,
celebrities and civilians alike rushed to
upload pictures of themselves from 2009
alongside 2019 photos. It became an
impossible-to-avoid viral sensation,
allowing us all to indulge in a bout of
nostalgia ? something we seemingly can?t
get enough of in these rocky times ? as
we recalled our collective obsession with
side-swept fringes and belted minidresses.
2009 was a different time ? if someone
said, ?ask Alexa?, you?d presume they meant
style icon of the day Alexa Chung. The
iPhone existed but Instagram did not.
We still took pictures on a digital camera
and uploaded them to Facebook after (not
during) the holiday or night out. A few early
adopters were cottoning on to the immediate
quality of social media ? 2009 was the year
Ashton Kutcher uploaded a pic of Demi
Moore?s bum (they were still a couple) to
Twitter, with ?Shhh!, don?t tell wifey?. But
the word ?selfie? wasn?t yet ubiquitous.
In 2009, Jennifer Aniston dumped John
Mayer once and for all. Madonna fell for
22-year-old Jesus Luz. Cheryl was attached
to Ashley Cole (just). And the world lost
Michael Jackson. Timoth閑 Chalamet was
an unknown 13-year-old, Uber was just
a Germanic word that meant ?overly? and
Katie Holmes was still Mrs Tom Cruise. At
the Oscars, Heath Ledger was honoured
posthumously for his work in The Dark
Knight. Meanwhile, Harvey Weinstein
was the most powerful man in film.
It was also the year that jobbing actor
Meghan Markle appeared in an advert for
tortilla chips. Indeed, it was the year that
millions of us seem unwilling to forget ?
especially if there?s a flattering decade-old
photo we can upload to Insta?

COULD CELINE BE THE
new red carpet hit brand? That
is the new Celine by Hedi
Slimane, the controversial
designer who caused a furore
when his first collection hit the catwalk in
Paris last September. You may remember
the painfully thin, youth-obsessed casting
of models who stomped down the runway
in knicker-grazing dresses and whippetthin trouser suits. You may also remember
the context of the debacle: he?d taken over
from Phoebe Philo, the British designer
beloved for her grown-up solution dressing
that celebrated understated luxury, which
he replaced with his sharp, angular, skinny
aesthetic that seemed to piss off the entire
fashion world and beyond.�
Well, looking at recent red carpets at
the Golden Globes and last week?s Critics?
Choice Awards is proof that fashion can
woo and evolve at warp speed. Where
Phoebe?s C閘ine was far from a celebrity
go-to at step-and-repeats, Hedi?s Celine
is proving a hit with everyone from Lady
Gaga to Emma Stone, Saoirse Ronan,
Natalie Portman, Lupita Nyong?o,
Rachel Weisz, Amber Heard, Naomi
Watts, Claire Foy and many more.
And, you know what, seen on familiar
?real? bodies, glowing with health, these
clothes look undeniably awesome. For
?real?, read: daily gym workouts, in-house
chefs, flash-bulb lighting and glam teams
galore. But still.
It?s an interesting move from red carpet
dressers. Many of these stars were those
who, last year, joined the Time?s Up
movement, coming together as one at the
Golden Globes blackout, when they turned
fashion into a politicised tool with their
all-black statement of gender equality and
female empowerment ? something that
hardly corresponds with Hedi?s first catwalk
aesthetic. But don?t blame them. Why
would any of these actors be aware of the
controversy of his debut? And if there?s
one thing Hedi makes in spades, it?s black
clothes. As he told French newspaper Le
Figaro in his only interview last season:
?Black is sharp and straightforward. It is
inseparable from my fashion style and my
photography? We go through hundreds of
samples in our research to find the perfect
black jacket or the perfect little black dress.?
It also begs the question: were we too
fast to judge Hedi? Too eager to condemn
him as the arch villain of the fashion
world? I think so. By all accounts, he is
only too happy to adapt and refine his

catwalk vision for the red carpet. Note
how Rachel Weisz?s long black gown with
a cloud of white ruffles was adapted from
the original micro-mini dress catwalk
offering. ?I saw the runway version of her
by Hedi Slimane dress in the showroom in
Paris months ago and thought it could be
a perfect look for her,? celebrity stylist Kate
Young told American Vogue online. ?The
white ruffles remind me of a ?70s kitten,
which is precisely how I like to think of
Rachel. The way it would frame her skin,
hair and shoulders just seemed ideal.
A month or so ago, I called Peter from
Celine?s press office and asked if we could
make that look into a gown. We tried it
before the holiday in New York and it
looked absolutely magical.? He also

never even appeared on the runway; it
was made bespoke for her and worn
with Hedi?s signature tuxedo trousers.
And let?s not forget the celebrities with
the new Celine bags ? from Gaga, who
debuted Hedi?s first bag for the brand on
her Insta in October (?I gave her this bag in
private as a present, because she?s a longtime friend,? he told Le Figaro), to Angelina
Jolie, now endlessly toting hers around LA.�
All of this Celine spotting in real life
provides a balance to his controversial
shows ? and keeps us intrigued, watching
and commenting (think of the free
advertising!). It?s clever. He?s clever. And
it?s a formula that smacks of commercial
gold ? something he achieved in his past
job at Saint Laurent and the goal he is
charged with at Celine, to double or
treble revenues of ?800m.
The celebrity-to-consumer trickle-down
effect will be enormous, says e-commerce
site 24 S鑦res? buying director Maud
Barrionuevo. ?Celebrity endorsement
always helps with driving traffic to
products, especially in fashion and
luxury. The 16 bag from Celine?s
new collection [first seen on Gaga]
continues to receive the most visits
since we launched it on 24sevres.com.?
As for his next show this March, it is
unlikely that Hedi will change his catwalk
vision of strung-out youth: ?I have always
photographed, documented and dressed
the youth. It?s been at the heart of
everything I?ve done so far, in photography
and fashion. It reigns on my catwalks,
house after house.? He may even switch
the youth-infatuation volume up a notch.
Whatever, he?s got our attention.�

by Ange?s wild tactics.?
After two years of bitter negotiations
during divorce proceedings, Angelina has
now decided to ?make a conscious effort
to calm things down for the children?.
According to our source, that means ?no
more family therapists constantly bothering
them and checking in? (Brad?s time with the
kids, including an overnight stay with the
five youngest before Christmas, has until
now been supervised by therapists).
?Angelina has also worked tirelessly these
past few months to treat the children to
days out and special events to make them
happy and, some are saying, ease her guilt
over what?s been a messy divorce,? said the
insider. ?She?s been concerned about what
they?ve been hearing from their friends
about the nasty details of the divorce, which
is why she?s insisted they spend more time
doing activities to take their minds off it.?
Angelina, our source added, is even
letting Brad spend ?long weekends? with the
kids. ?He?s desperate to be more present in
their lives and is toying with the idea of
taking a break from acting, so he can be
more available. She understands that they

KATE MOSS WOULD
simply never do the
#10YearChallenge. It?s way
too braggy for her. But if she
did post a photo of herself
from 2009, few would disagree that, 10
years on, she looks better than she ever did.
Which isn?t to say that she looked bad
10 years ago ? bar a blip during the Pete
Doherty years, Kate?s never looked bad
? more a testament to how good she
looks in 2019. In the week that the latest
internet challenge reached its peak, how
serendipitous that Kate turned 45, and in
doing so, provided a neat reminder that
age is nothing but a number.
Judging by the photos on social media
of her birthday celebrations, Kate feels
approximately eight. How else to explain
the joyous rainbow cake and HAPPY
BIRTHDAY spelt out in shiny foil
balloons? It?s a far cry from her 30th, where
she took a suite at Claridges and threw
an all-weekender themed around F Scott
Fitzgerald?s novel, The Beautiful And The
Damned. But then, by all accounts, Kate
isn?t a party girl any more. At least, not that
sort of party girl. Rainbow birthday cake,
she can wholly get behind.
I was never judgy about Damned Kate,
but I have to confess that I love Beautiful
Kate a whole heap more. For doesn?t she
look radiant? You don?t need a ton of
flattering lighting or a hefty Photoshop
bill to conclude she looks lit from within.
Alcohol-free for over a year (according to
multiple sources), the results of her cleanliving are writ large on her face, moving
even the most critical tabloid to gush
about ?the dazzling perks of her sobriety?.
No doubt about it: Kate has a spring in
her step, even in vertiginous Yves Saint
Laurent heels. After her birthday party
at London?s China Tang, she surfaced
in Paris, dressed in a long black velvet
coat that on anyone else would have
looked pure Scottish Widow.
The following day, she was spotted
shopping with BFF Sadie Frost, dressed in
a typical trademark mix of leopard print
and black leather, a Chanel 2.55 swinging
insouciantly from her arm. ?I want that
jacket,? WhatsApp?d one of my friends,
swiftly forming a new chat group named
Kate Looks Great Again.
While I need another chat group like
I need a hole in my head, I can?t disagree
with the sentiment. Suddenly, we?re all
interested in what Kate?s wearing again;
mentally trying it on and wondering why
we ever ditched our black skinny jeans for
accordion-pleated maxiskirts.
Why are we back in love with Kate?
Maybe because, unlike some influencers,
she doesn?t try hard. Or even at all. No
shoppable hashtags on Kate?s Instagram
feed ? she doesn?t have one. And in an
era of rampant self-promotion, this feels
refreshing. While the rest of the world
goes to hell in a handcart, there?s both
comfort and admiration to be drawn
from the fact that Kate?s just Kate ?
always has been, always will be.

Saudi women
aren?t free or equal,
says teen refugee

As Rahaf Mohammed, the teenager
who fled from Saudi Arabia in fear for
her safety, starts a new life in Canada,
Lynn Enright talks to Danah Almayouf,
another Saudi citizen who sought asylum
PHOTOS: REUTERS, INSTAGRAM/BY.DNDNMA, AP
A TEENAGER, far from home, stood in
front of the world?s media last week. She
wore a grey knee-length dress, her dark
hair cut in a blunt bob. When she spoke,
she was articulate and composed. At 18,
Rahaf Mohammed had become the world?s
most famous refugee. She made headlines
around the world in early January, after
fleeing from her family while they were
on holiday in Kuwait. She was trying
to get to Australia when she was
intercepted on a stopover in Bangkok.
After authorities there threatened to
deport her immediately back to Saudi
Arabia, she barricaded herself in a hotel
room, all the while tweeting her ordeal.
She has now been given asylum in
Canada ? and is speaking out to alert the
world to the plight of Saudi girls and
women. Rahaf wants us to recognise the
human-rights abuses that occur under
Saudi Arabia?s male guardianship system,
a country where every woman must have a
male guardian ? a father, brother, husband,
even a son ? who has the authority to make
decisions on her behalf.
?The Saudi administration controls a
woman?s life, job and position,? Rahaf said
after arriving in Canada. ?Women in Saudi
Arabia are treated like children, even if
they are 50 or 60. They aren?t free or equal
to their male counterparts.?
Faced with this oppression ? including
not being able to travel or marry without
a man?s consent ? many Saudi women feel
they have no choice but to leave their
country and escape their families.
But how easy is it to make a new life for
yourself in a country so alien to the one in
which you grew up? Danah Almayouf, 35,
left Saudi Arabia to seek asylum in the US
in 2016. Like Rahaf, Danah renounced
Islam, a crime punishable by death at
home. She now lives in New York, working
as a photographer. ?If your male guardian
is open-minded then you?ll have a life,?
she tells Grazia. ?If not, you?re basically
in prison.? She hasn?t seen her family
since 2014, something she says makes
her ?really sad. I really miss them?.
Meanwhile, Rahaf hopes to never see
her family again. She alleges her father,
who is a governor in Saudi Arabia, abused
her, and after it became clear that she had
been granted asylum in Canada, they
Top, from left:

Toronto; her ?rst
interview; in the
Bangkok hotel.
Right: Danah
released a statement disowning her,
claiming she is ?mentally unstable?. Online
threats against her have become so intense
that the Canadian government has hired
a private bodyguard for her.
Life at home is unbearable for so many
Saudi women, but life in a new country
can also feel impossible. ?It?s very difficult,?
says Danah. ?You?ve got to have a plan. It?s
not easy to leave your support system and
start a new life from scratch.?
In November last year, New York police
suspected a suicide pact when the bodies
of two Saudi sisters were found by the
river. Danah, too, knows women who
have attempted suicide after fleeing
Saudi Arabia. These are women who
have escaped abuse and oppression,
but ended up broke, isolated and lonely.
What?s clear, says Danah, is that no
woman takes the decision to flee lightly.
?[A woman] wouldn?t run away just to
have fun and drink and have sex, like the
Saudi Arabian government tries to say.?
Despite the difficulties that may lie
ahead, Rahaf hopes other women will
follow. ?I think the number of women
fleeing from the Saudi administration
and abuse will increase. I hope my story
encourages others to be brave and free.?

high street. Hardly a week goes by without
reports of another chain shutting shops
or big-name bricks-and-mortar brands
offering unprecedented discounts. It
certainly makes for gloomy reading.
But it?s not all bad news. Last week, JD
Sports reported that like-for-like sales were
up 5% in the 48 weeks to 5 January, and
were also consistently positive over the
festive and Black Friday period, when
many other established retailers faltered.
So how is it bucking the trend? ?JD
Sports is a very interesting brand,? says retail
and commercial expert Kate Hardcastle,
co-founder of business consultancy Insight
With Passion. ?It seems to be quietly getting
on with the job so many retailers are
struggling with ? operationally working on
a business that offers ease of use to customers
online and offline in traditional stores.?
But JD?s success taps into a wider trend,
too. Sportswear is an unstoppable juggernaut
with a desirability that extends beyond
the gym. Once purely practical ? strictly
reserved for either the gym or particularly
lazy Sundays ? Nike jackets and Puma
trainers, Adidas leggings and Reebok caps
have all gradually infiltrated our on-duty
wardrobes. You can see it on A-listers, street

wonder Nike found itself on Lyst?s hottest
brands list in 2018, nestled between
Balenciaga and Prada.
Part of sportswear?s undeniable power
is that it?s an accessible luxury and this
means big business (the UK?s sports
clothing market was worth �5bn in
2017, according to GlobalData). That?s
no doubt why huge designer brands have
started dabbling in sportswear magic:
Off-White has teamed up with Nike,
Fendi reimagined Fila?s logo, while Stella
McCartney?s ongoing collab with Adidas
is thriving. This week, even Victoria
Beckham joins the party, with her highl
anticipated Reebok collaboration landi
in stores (see right).
So, with the sportswear industry
continuing to flex its might, could
multi-brand sportswear shops become
the department stores of the future? ?I
certainly have a vision, which I?m trialli
with some clients, where we reimagine t
idea of specialist department stores,? say
Hardcastle. ?Think about combining a
good health-food restaurant, yoga class/
dance class area, sports massage and
sports goods and you may have a
winning format.? You heard it here first.

Last week, the BRIT Awards nominations were
dominated by women, as was the recent BBC?s
Sound of 2019 list. So, does this mark the start
of a new era, asks Alexandra Pollard
FLOHIO

FEMALE ARTISTS DOMINATED
this year?s BRIT nominations, announced
last week. Dua Lipa and Anne-Marie have
both earned four nominations, Jorja Smith
received three, and Jess Glynne two. Three
of the five acts nominated for British
Breakthrough Act are women. The BBC?s
Sound of 2019 shortlist is similarly
promising ? not only are six of the 10
artists female, but the list includes queer
women (King Princess), women of colour
(Ella Mai, Flohio, Mahalia, Grace Carter),
and, for the first time ever, a non-Englishspeaking musician (Rosal韆).
On Woman?s Hour last week, while
celebrating the ?seismic? changes in female
representation in music over the past few
months, Radio 1 DJ Annie Mac was asked,
?Why does it matter?? There was a pause.

industry on an executive level, to step up.?
As you can imagine, his comments were
rounded upon by musicians and music
fans alike. ?Ugh bout 2 step up on 2 ur
face,? tweeted Charli XCX. ?Women are
making amazing music right now.?
It seems, though, that change might
finally be afoot. In addition to the BRITs
and the BBC Sound of 2019 list, this
summer?s festivals may also be more
female-led. At the end of last year, 45
international musical festivals and
conferences signed a pledge towards
achieving or maintaining a 50/50 gender
balance across their festivals by 2022.
Finally, the powers-that-be are recognising
that change doesn?t just happen ? you have
to make it happen.
There?s been a noticeable shift on the
airwaves, too, in the past few months, after
Lauren Laverne took over the Radio 6
Music breakfast show, Zoe Ball replaced
Chris Evans as Radio 2 breakfast show
host, and Sara Cox took over from Simon
Mayo as host of Radio 2?s drivetime (it?s
worth noting that both of those men left
of their own accord). Before now, there
hadn?t been a female-fronted Radio 2
daytime show for over 20 years. When
Annie Mac was growing up, she rarely
heard any female DJs on the radio.
?Until you see someone like you doing
it, it?s a bit like, ?Maybe that?s not a
place for me,?? she?s said.
That?s why female representation
across all areas of the music industry is so
important. Seeing your own experience
and identity reflected back at you is
something men ? particularly straight
white men ? have been taking for granted
for generations. But for women, it can
be an all-too-rare phenomenon.
As #MeToo and Time?s Up have gripped
the film industry, many musicians have
wondered when the music industry will
face a similar reckoning. ?I keep thinking,?
mused Lauren Mayberry, of Chvrches,
when I interviewed her last year, ?when
are the fucking dominos gonna fall on
the music business? That?s stacked and
ready to go.?
Last year at the BRITs, women decided
to take matters into their own hands,
wearing white roses on the red carpet
(as did some male musician allies) to draw
attention to gender inequality and abuses
of power. Neil Portnow was wrong to
suggest it?s the job of women to step up
and solve their own mistreatment ? but
they did so anyway.
Things are still far from perfect of
course: women are still under-represented
in areas such as production, mixing and
songwriting, and no doubt there is still
plenty of mistreatment happening behind
closed doors. But it feels as though there?s
a sea change in the air.
?Here?s to more women on these stages,?
said Dua Lipa as she won best female at
last year?s BRIT Awards. ?Here?s to more
women winning awards, and more women
taking over the world.? Amen to that.
Alexandra Pollard is an arts and
entertainment journalist at The Independent

?Why does it matter? that we?re not
being spoken to by women?? she replied,
somewhat incredulous. ?Because we want
to hear from women!? It?s a simple, and
you?d have thought inarguable, fact ?
but it?s one the music industry has been
painfully slow to pick up on.
Until very recently, music awards,
festival line-ups and radio playlists were
overwhelmingly male. What?s worse, the
men in charge were seemingly oblivious to
the problem. ?The idea that female bands
are sidelined as a suggestion is just not
there,? Melvin Benn, the boss of Festival
Republic, told me in an interview in
2015, when I pointed out Reading and
Leeds Festivals? 90% male line-up.
Just last year, Recording Academy
president Neil Portnow demonstrated
the same blinkered view after
#GrammysSoMale trended on Twitter.
?I think it has to begin with women,? he
said when asked what needed to change,
?who have the creativity in their hearts
and their souls, who want to be musicians,
who want to be engineers, who want to
be producers, who want to be part of the

was a hard-drinking
ladette; now she
barely touches a
drop. Here, she
reveals why we?re all
more emotionally
dependent than we
think we are
?You can never have a healthy
relationship with alcohol
(and I should know?)?
do you have a problem
with alcohol? If you?re like the
majority of social drinkers,
possibly approaching the end
of a successful Dry January,
your answer is probably ?No?. A couple of
glasses of wine with dinner, maybe a bit
of a binge at the weekend (defined for
many women as four-ish drinks over a
two-hour period)? This is a fair depiction
of my drinking habits when I first got
what I call ?sober curious? eight years ago,
and began to question every aspect of my
relationship with booze.
I started drinking in the late 1990s
against the backdrop of the ?ladette?
culture, when it was considered feminist
34
to be able to knock back pints and drink as
much as my male friends and colleagues.
This meant that by my twenties I?d quickly
developed a high tolerance for booze.
I never blacked out or got in serious
trouble as a result of my drinking, and
had always considered myself a ?normal?
drinker. So quitting was not something
I ever considered. Why willingly put a
cork in the good times and make myself
a social outcast unless I had to? (In other
words, unless I?d become an alcoholic ?
which I hadn?t.)
But by my mid-thirties the hangovers
had become pretty horrific. Like most of
us, I was encouraged to write this off as
the sign of a good night ? but instead I
began my line of sober-curious questioning.
How did alcohol really make me feel?
How come there was often so much
pressure to drink? Were the hangovers
really worth it for the highs? It?s a process
that has led me to radically re-evaluate
how I drink, to the point that now I?ve
practically cut it out altogether.
It was only when I began to remove the
booze and live a hangover-free existence
that I realised the wider impact of my
regular ol?, nothing-to-be-concerned-about
social drinking habit. How it had been
robbing me of my sleep. How I often drank
to feel more confident, while in reality
it actually spiked my anxiety levels and
left me feeling anything but. How much
????? ??????????? ?????? "What's News" VK.COM/WSNWS

more optimistic, inspired and better
equipped to cope with stress I was when
I didn?t drink.
As a result of all I?ve learned over this
period, I?ve also developed a theory:
anybody who drinks alcohol regularly is
a little bit addicted, as it?s impossible to
have a ?healthy? relationship with booze.
It begins with the ?desire function? in our
brain: we?re biologically hardwired to seek
out and repeat experiences that either
bring us pleasure or take away our pain.
Alcohol, on a very superficial level, appears
to do both. Then there?s the fact that
booze is one of the five most addictive
substances on the planet, up there with
heroin, cocaine, nicotine and barbiturates.
When you also factor in the way that
alcohol is actively marketed as the secret
sauce that makes us funnier, sexier and less
socially awkward ? while washing all our
woes down the drain ? I?d argue it?s hard
to maintain a perfectly healthy, take-it-orleave-it relationship with the stuff.
Of course, not everybody who drinks
will become an alcoholic, by definition
finding themselves physically addicted to
alcohol or drinking in a way that makes
them a danger to themselves or others. But
I believe more of us than would ever admit
it are emotionally dependent on booze.
This would explain why it?s often hard to
imagine a social life without drinking, not
to mention the FOMA (Fear Of Missing
Alcohol) that often comes up as soon as we
consider giving it up. We fear that life will
become boring. That our friends will judge
us. That we won?t be able to unwind. These
are fears I have found to be completely
unfounded ? they shine a light on our
psychological attachment to booze.
Not only do I feel physically healthier
than ever since getting sober curious, I am
also more optimistic, have bags more
confidence, and feel better equipped to
handle whatever life throws at me.
Believe me: you have nothing to lose,
and so much to gain, from getting sober
curious and discovering the benefits for
yourself ? whether or not you
think you have a problem.

I?M IN THE
DRIVER?S SEAT
She released her second album last year after an involuntary
six-year hiatus, has a new fashion collaboration with Escada,
and is about to tour again. Rita Ora tells Hannah Flint
why she feels in control of her career at last
36
????? ??????????? ?????? "What's News" VK.COM/WSNWS
Rita in campaign shots
for Escada and the bag
she designed (below)
am sitting in a West
London pub close to where
Rita Ora grew up, and the
singer is rattling off the
countries she?s visited in the
last few days. ?I went from
Sydney to LA to London
to Berlin to London, then
I?m going to New York
tomorrow. And then Paris, and then Istanbul.?
This, it turns out, is standard procedure.
Indeed, over the last seven years, the 28-year-old
has been very busy, taking on side hustle after side
hustle. She?s had stints as an actor, as a judge on
The X Factor and The Voice, as a fashion face
(she?s fronted campaigns for DKNY and Rimmel
London and has designed a collection for
Adidas), and as an honorary ambassador to
Kosovo, where she was born, all while
maintaining her reputation as one of the most
recognisable faces on the London party circuit.
Last week, yet another project was announced:
as the new face of Escada, for whom she?s also
designed a bag (it?s sitting next to her today, and
she?s thrilled that every purchase will see money
go towards Women for Women, a charity that
helps women in war-torn countries). Working
with a luxury brand was high on her to-do list
last year, so saying yes to the collaboration was
a ?no-brainer?. ?I?ve been a fan for a long time,?
she says. ?It celebrates working women and
the strong, powerful, individual person.?
It comes two months after the release of
Rita?s long-awaited second album, Phoenix,
back in November. The story of why the record
took her so long is now well-known. After
signing to Jay Z?s label Roc Nation in 2008,
Rita filed a lawsuit against the company in
2015 ? three years after releasing her debut
album Ora ? stating that she had only been
?permitted? to release one album ?despite creating
multiple additional records for release?. A year
later, Roc Nation countersued, before a
settlement was reached in 2016. She signed
to Atlantic Records just a month later.
Rita has insisted the split was amicable,
but for someone who claims to ?collapse? as
soon as she stops working, being unable to put
out a new album (despite a few singles here
and there) must have been torturous. ?Oh,
my goodness, I was going crazy,? she says.
?I have no shame in saying that.? However,
she gives the impression she?s almost glad it
happened: Rita?s hiatus from music forced
I
her to pursue other things. ?I realised I could
actually slowly build a foundation for myself
while all this music stuff was going on. It was
almost like going into fight-or-flight. I was
in survival mode.?
She?s dressed today in a white puffer jacket,
with bright red lipstick and her hair scraped into
a bun. She?s charming and, every so often, laughs
with a chuckle. It?s all somewhat at odds with the
fact that, on the inside, she?s clearly hard as nails.
By the time she finally came to write
Phoenix, she found the confidence to be more
?transparent? in her music.
?I?ve made a point of being open and real
with my album,? she says. ?I wanted to put
everything on the table. I?ve always been
outspoken in interviews: some people don?t like
it and some people do.? And yet? For all the talk
of how open she wants to be, I?ve been strictly
advised ahead of our meeting that all questions
about her love life are off the table (news has
only recently broken that she?s dating the actor
Andrew Garfield, with whom she?s pictured
with a week after we meet).
I can understand why she doesn?t want to talk
about it: scrutiny of her love life in recent years
has been intense (her exes include Calvin Harris,
musician Andrew Watt, Rob Kardashian and
Tommy Hilfiger?s son Ricky). So I ask, instead,
about the equal level of scrutiny on her career
during the long wait for a second album: how
did that feel? But my question is swiftly shut
down by her publicist (Rita lets out her wry
chuckle). I try a different approach: did she ever
worry that people might take her less seriously
as a musician during that time?
?No,? she says bluntly. ?I didn?t think people
thought that. Plus, it?s a bit like, ?Let?s just get on
with it, for God?s sake.? People can?t fathom how
someone can do different things.?
Awkward questions aside, what will her next
move be? She admits she obsessively strategises
her future with to-do lists, goals for the year and
resolutions. Designing her own collection is a
priority, and she wants to wear her own creations
on tour one day. You can, she is adamant, do more
than one thing as a woman in the public eye. And
now, at last, nothing is stopping her from doing
what she truly wants to do.
?I?ve figured it out, finally,? she says, smiling.
?It?s onwards and upwards now. For the first time
in a long time, it feels like I?m in the driver?s seat.?

for years, my husband Rob left his socks
on the living-room floor. He?d leave his
coat hung over the back of a kitchen chair.
His shoes would languish in the hallway.
And don?t get me started on the wet towels
or half-filled coffee cups I found all over
the house. ?Why doesn?t he see this stuff ??
I?d think to myself. ?Why doesn?t he care??
My husband is a feminist ally and a good
man, but that hasn?t always made him
good at emotional labour. By that I mean
tracking the mental work of the household
and empathetically responding to those
around to keep everything running
smoothly. It encompasses noticing what
needs to be done and doing it ? buying loo
rolls when we?re running low, remembering
his mother?s birthday? Things that
seemingly don?t come naturally to Rob.
And he?s not alone ? the Office for
National Statistics found that women do
around 40% more of the household chores
and childcare than men. But do women
have as much responsibility as men for
these woeful stats? We tell men that they
cannot, and quite frankly should not, put
in the effort to learn these skills because
they?ll never come close to a woman?s
expertise in this realm. The prevailing
sentiment is that men are hard-wired
differently. They?re less emotionally
intuitive. We tell women it?s easier to
simply shoulder the load than to try
to work ?against nature? to right this
imbalance. Stay in your lane. It?s not worth
the trouble, even though it takes a great

labour, and our brains never fully switch
off. If I?m honest, I bought into that myth
for a long time.
The problem came to a head one
Mother?s Day. As a present, I?d asked
for a cleaning service to come and blitz
our bathroom. Frankly, I wanted a break.
My husband had called one company
the day before, decided they were too
expensive, and instead gave me a necklace
as a gift and cleaned the bathroom himself.
Meanwhile, I was left to care for our three
children while the rest of our house fell
into carnage.
I tried to explain my frustration,
but Rob?s knee-jerk reaction was to
defend himself against what he saw as
an attack on his character. He took it
as me saying that he didn?t do enough
or that I expected perfection.
In reality, he wasn?t the problem. The
way we condition men and women to
either perform or neglect emotional
labour was the problem, and the fact that
these social norms had slipped into our
household was the problem ? and, of
course, I couldn?t eloquently express any
of that while fuming over a simple task
I felt he hadn?t properly thought through.
It is especially difficult when you?re
frustrated by how it?s playing out in the
minutiae of everyday life. More often
than not, it looks like you?re just pissed
off about socks being left on the floor.
It becomes tedious to explain how it?s
so much more than that, especially
without sounding like a nag.
That?s why, in 2017, I decided to write
an essay on emotional labour addressing
mine and other women?s frustration
and the toll it can take on an otherwise
happy relationship. It was called Women
Aren?t Nags ? We?re Just Fed Up and,
much to my surprise, the piece went
viral. It has now been shared almost
1. Talk about it. Don?t wait for
a blow-up moment to discuss
emotional labour. It becomes
less fraught if you do it more
frequently and put aside blame.

pride in ?doing it all?. Instead,
we should demand equal
partnership and enjoy the
bene?ts that come with that.
3. Identify the positives. Rob
realised there were parts of
his life he wasn?t engaged with
before, both with our children
and within the household.
one million times. Since then, emotional
labour has been a topic of constant
conversation in our household. I?m
teaching my husband how to get more in
tune with emotional labour ? something
he has actively expressed a desire to learn
? but, quite honestly, the work involved
in explaining concepts that are second
nature to me is sometimes hard.
Both of us are still learning. Rob still
often helps only after I?ve reminded him.
And I find myself falling back on old
habits, taking over the emotional labour
instead of pointing out my husband?s
blind spots. I have to pause, breathe,
and remind myself that he is learning
this skill set for the first time in his life.
Because the truth is, emotional labour
is a learned skill, not an innate one. It
will, however, be worthwhile. Leaning
into emotional labour means leaning into
your life, becoming more fully connected
with those around you and their needs,
and ultimately coming into a better
understanding of the full human
experience. It also means gaining a deeper
appreciation of the life of your partner.
Because it?s never really about the socks
on the floor. It?s about how we care for one
another, how we notice one another ? and
how we show this to the people we love.

WOMB WITH A VIEW
Every week, a woman reflects on

Embarrassment and fear

she?d come to bitterly regret
when she was diagnosed
with cervical cancer
ou think you?re
invincible when
you?re young. Even
after witnessing the
Jade Goody effect
? the Big Brother star,
27, died 10 years
ago this March from
cervical cancer, prompting nearly 500,000
extra women to turn up for a smear test
? I never thought the disease would strike
me. That mixture of naivety, ignorance
and nervousness meant I repeatedly
ignored the letters asking me to attend
for my smear test ? sticking them in the
kitchen drawer, with an intention to sort
it out later. But if I had just made that
appointment, my cancer could have been
caught so much earlier. Instead, it ended
up taking my fertility.
I was one of the million women a year in
the UK who now don?t go for their smear.
Attendance rates for cervical screenings are
at a 21-year low, and new research by Jo?s
Cervical Cancer Trust has found that over
half of young women say they feel scared
and vulnerable about going for the test. I
was exactly the same. You hear horror stories
about it hurting so, whenever the letters
came, I?d just ignore them. I did worry
about not going but I put it off, reasoning
I?d do it when I had more time. I never did.

The embarrassment factor was there
for me, too. Even though I?d had strangers
examining me intimately when I gave birth
to my daughters, I still felt intimidated,
which seems ridiculous now. I know
now the nurse has seen it all before.
Two years ago, aged 36, I realised
something wasn?t right. I?d been getting
a pain in my lower abdomen, spotting
when I wasn?t due my period, and pain and
bleeding after sex. I knew it wasn?t normal.
My GP referred me to The Holly
Private Hospital in Essex. I needed
to be seen urgently, and within two weeks
I was there for my first ever smear test.
The woman who did it could tell how
anxious I was and couldn?t have been
kinder. I admitted I?d never had one
before, and she completely put me at
ease, taking everything really slowly and
gently, and using the smallest speculum
to start off with. It felt uncomfortable,
but not painful, and I had another nurse
holding my hand, chatting to me the
whole time. I couldn?t understand what
I?d been so frightened of.
They could see immediately that there
were abrasions on my cervix. I was sent for
another investigation and that?s when I got
Claire with daughter Imogen
the diagnosis. Cancer. Like everyone who
hears that word, I was instantly scared.
In a way, it was a relief to know what was
wrong. But I couldn?t stop blaming myself
for not going sooner. I felt stupid, and so
devastated that I?d let it get to this point.
Having to tell my family was
horrendous. Ellie, my eldest daughter, was
15 and going through her GCSEs, while
my youngest, Imogen, was six ? too little
to really understand ? so they were both
very worried. I spent a lot of time putting
on a brave face for them, but everything
happened so quickly that there wasn?t
really time for me to overthink it.
A couple of weeks later I had LLETZ
treatment ? a procedure to burn off the
abnormal cells ? which left me in a lot of
pain. Then I was told it wasn?t going to be
enough. The best way to ensure the cancer
wouldn?t come back was a hysterectomy
to remove my entire cervix and womb.
Because of my age, doctors recommended
keeping my ovaries, so I wouldn?t go
into early menopause.
The decision was obviously a sensible
one, but that didn?t make it easy. At 36,
I was lucky to already have my two girls
but I?d been planning to have another
child. After the operation I found it so
distressing being on a ward with women
who had pregnancy complications, and
when I got home to my family the reality
really hit me that I would never be able
to give Imogen a brother or sister closer
to her own age. I?d always planned to
have a third and, even today, when my
friends have babies, I find it tough.
After six weeks, I was given the all-clear,
which was an enormous relief. I?d been
feeling so low, drained and emotional. I
wanted to get back into my normal routine,
and back to my job as a store manager as
quickly as possible. But my body isn?t the

same as it was. I used to do long-distance
running, for instance, and now can?t run
very far. I have bladder problems too ?
a common side effect of hysterectomies.
Two years on, the most important thing
for me now is to send a message to other
women about how important this is. I
talk to the young girls at work about the
importance of going for their smear tests.
Three thousand women a year in the UK
are diagnosed with cervical cancer, and it?s
the most common cancer among women
35 and under. There are lots of reasons
why women don?t go for their smears
and they?re all the same feelings I had.
There were so many things I never
realised, though, for instance that
speculums come in different sizes. It?s
all about putting yourself in the right
mindset and feeling that you?re in control.
If you?re worried, take a friend along
with you and, most importantly, talk
beforehand with the medical professional
doing your smear. Telling them that
you?re feeling anxious helps them to
help you ? and really can make a whole
world of difference.

JUST BECAUSE I?M SINGLE,
DON?T ASSUME I?M A KIDULT
CATHERINE
G R AY
Single people are often unfairly infantilised
as overgrown teens who haven?t had
to grow up, when in reality they?re
the grandmasters of responsibility?
Yesterday, somebody said to me, ?All you
need to do now is get a long-term partner
and then, then you?ll finally be an adult!?
I contemplated how to respond in a
mature manner. Hmmm. Perhaps I could
frog-march him to my flat, put his head
inside the washing machine I?d bought
by myself, and then turn it on. Then we
could go to his place and I could ?vroom,
vroom!? a chainsaw and cleave his sofa
in half. Finally, I could follow up by
sending him a picture of me ? smiling,
drinking camomile tea on my intact
sofa. (Please note: during this fantasy
of mindless violence and vandalism,
I was wearing all of Villanelle?s best
outfits from Killing Eve, particularly
the bubblegum-pink couture dress.)
Instead, I shook myself out of my
revenge reverie, smiled sweetly at him
and literally said, ?Ha, ha,? which is what
people do when they?re expected to
laugh, but they can?t.
Here?s why. I love this person ? he?s
misled on this particular point, but
otherwise, ace ? and I really could not
be bothered to try and capsize an accepted
social more on that particular afternoon.
It was so much easier to sigh and navigate
around it, rather than say, ?Hold up,
rewind: why am I less of an adult than
you, just because I?m single? Can you
explain that to me??
Having been single for nearly three
years now, I?m often on the receiving
Singleton revenge doesn?t
come sweeter than Villanelle
in pink Molly Goddard
end of this, ?You?re just an overgrown
teen lumbering through life,? ridicule.
It?s as common as, ?Tell us a funny
Bumble story, single jester!? voyeurism,
or #coupleprivilege when it comes
to bed-assigning in a villa.
How would you define an adult? To
me, it?s somebody responsible, financially
independent and reliable; someone who
AS A SINGLE, THE
BUCK STOPS WITH
ME. FOOD, BILLS,
REPAIRS? I DO IT ALL
now spends 40 minutes grooming the
house and 20 minutes on themselves
before a dinner party (a direct flip of
how it used to be).
As a single, the buck absolutely stops
with me ? in fact, I am the buck. I have to
make enough to buy all the food and pay
all the bills. Things like council tax, rent
and holidays cost me more than they do
the coupled. Moving house? It?s on me.
Organising travel? Me. Wedding present?
Me. Something breaks? You guessed it.
I have to do it all.
So, if anything, I should be considered
an advanced adult. Those in couples ought
to come to me with offerings of fruit and
ask for advice in my life-mastery ways,
while I sit cross-legged on a cushion
looking wise, caressing crystals and
talking in riddles.
Singles, I see you. I salute you. I know.
It?s hard sometimes and you should get
more props than you do. So please, allow
me to congratulate you ? just in case
society is forgetting to.
Next week, Catherine on why there?s
no such thing as a failed relationship.
Catherine?s book, ?The Unexpected Joy Of
Being Single? (�99, Aster), is out now

SUMMER
2019
STARTS
HERE!
A T WA L K
REPORT
A Z I A? S FA S H I O N D I R E C TO R
EBECCA LOW THORPE
THIS SEASON, I?ll be
mostly wearing? last season
and the 10 seasons before
that. Sustainability is the top
fashion trend for 2019 (in
fact, let?s not call it a trend,
let?s call it a sweeping global movement
powered by the desire to consume more
consciously), which means I?ll be largely
shopping from my own wardrobe and
buying more judiciously than ever. But how
to do that and still look bang up to date?
It?s about sifting the fantasy and ranking
the reality. What do I desire? (A lot.) What
do I need? (Very little.) My buzz word for
2019? Discipline. I might love the bohemian
traveller trend (think Cali surfer girl on a
hedonistic retreat in Ibiza wearing printed
kaftans, tie-dye scuba gear, gold chains and
rings on her toes), but what do I really have in
common with her? Not much. I might also
love the idea of a wardrobe full of pastoral
simplicity in the form of hand-crafted
fishnet dresses, but in reality? The dog is
going to think they?re a chew toy and destroy
them? (What I will take from the look is
a macram� basket bag, thank you Loewe.)
No, the major, unignorable trend that
will guide my style is the huge return to
elegance, glamour and tailoring ? in other
words, clothes that can?t be knocked up in
a nanosecond on a factory production line
and slapped with a designer logo. After years
of deluxe sportswear headlining the
catwalks ? hoodies, tracksuits, trainers ?
designers have clawed back with the stuff
that sets them apart; clothes that look and
feel special with design as a core value.
Hence the rise of ready-couture (ready-towear shows that resemble couture) in all
their uber-glamorous, exquisitely detailed,
beautifully crafted glory. That?s not to say I?ll
be heading to work in a Valentino ball gown
(more?s the pity), but it does mean I?ll be
seeking out a new suit. And I?ll have a go at
wearing the beautifully tailored jacket with
a pair of my old Lululemon yoga leggings or
even cycling shorts (see Chanel for inspo).
Because today, posh + casj = very 2019.
The trouser suit is the epitome piece of
2019. But I?ll ignore those with a bolder
shoulder (I?m done with ?80s nostalgia)
and go for one of the new soft power suits as
espoused by Stella McCartney or Dries Van
Noten (true problem-solver designers). And
possibly wear said suit with a pastel-hued
blouse, as proposed by Alberta Ferretti. Of
course, if I was after something sharper and
slicker ? more visibly empoweri
take my style cues from Clare W
Keller?s Givenchy, Sarah Burton
McQueen or Miuccia Prada. M
Prada?s headbands ? satin halos
encrusted with crystal ? will be
going out-out update, guarantee
to transform my old LBD or tux
Indeed, accessories are the best way to update
any wardrobe and style out 2019 ? see how
we?ve decoded the latest trimmings for feet,
heads, necks, wrists, hands, and ankles (p56).
As for the important update pieces for
2019: the midiskirt has been replaced by
the standout sarong; the slouchy trouser
has been superseded by the cargo pant;
the perennial stone mac now comes in
glorious colours and, if you?re after a new
dress, make it one with a daring print.
And now for the siren warning: hemlines
are on the rise. Despite the fact they usually
plummet in times of economic uncertainty,
even the mess that is Brexit couldn?t keep
the short swingy dress off the catwalks. (If I
were to indulge in a thigh-high dress ? gulp
? I?d sling it on with old Levi?s and a fancy
shoe.) Actual sexy clothes were spotted on
more than a handful of runways this season.
Wiggle skirts, body-con dresses and secondskin tops may even kill off the massively
oversized trend currently swallowing our
feminine curves. What? No more Sexit?
That?s right, it really is OK to look, er, female
The same goes for colour trends:
e 50 shades of beige, you?ll find
hades of pastels. Pep them up with
w metals (gold, bronze, platinum,
and consider a slice or two of
The fashion world, at least, is

As ?psychodermatology?
comes to the fore,
Sophie Qureshi explores
why it could be time
to rethink your skin

spot the day you have to give a presentation
you?ve been stressing over for weeks, or
clocked the enviable glow on a newly
loved-up friend, it should come as no
surprise that our mind and mood have
a massive impact on the state of our
skin. Yet, surprisingly, up until now this
connection has been somewhat overlooked.
When the mirror presents us with spots,
eczema, or just a less-than-luminous
complexion, our usual response is to throw
products at the problem ? not to entertain
the idea that our mind could be the cause.
But a growing interest in psychodermatology
is set to change all that.
?Psychodermatology is the study of how
the mind and skin interact ? not only the
way your mental state affects your skin,
but also the psychological impact of skin
conditions like acne, rosacea and vitiligo,?
says Dr Alia Ahmed of London?s Eudelo
Clinic, who is qualified in both psychology
and dermatology, and is one of a new wave
of clinicians to combine the two. ?Our
thoughts and emotions affect our skin in
all sorts of ways, and we?re really missing
a trick if we don?t treat the two together.?
????? ??????????? ?????? "What's News" VK.COM/WSNWS

WHAT?S GETTING UNDER
YOUR SKIN?
?In the 21st century, we are only just
beginning to see psychodermatology
emerge as a subspeciality, because there
is now much more robust research to
support the mind-skin connection,? says
Dr Ahmed. It is now known, for example,
that the skin and the central nervous
system start from the same tissue ? both
develop from the ectoderm, the outer
layer of the embryo. And a host of studies
prove that our minds affect our skin in
all sorts of ways.
In one study conducted at California
State University, students were given music
samples to listen to: one triggering negative
emotions, and the other evoking positive
emotions. Researchers found the positive
music led to significant increases in skin
temperature, whereas the negative music
did the opposite.
In another study in Denmark,
researchers pricked subjects? skin with a
known allergen and then used hypnosis
to induce emotions of sadness, anger and
happiness. The subjects who were sad
became significantly more reactive to the

HACKS
FACE HEALERS
allergen than those who were happy ? ie
feeling sad made their skin more sensitive.
So what does all this mean for you?
Basically, that anything that?s going on
with your skin could be triggered by what?s
going on in your head. Take breakouts, for
example. The more stressed you are, the
more cortisol is released in your body.
High cortisol prompts skin to produce
more sebum, which clogs your pores and
encourages acne-causing bacteria to thrive.
Inflammatory conditions like eczema,
rosacea and psoriasis also have a strong link
to mood. ?There?s well-documented evidence
that links these conditions to stress, and
they?re often associated with anxiety and
depression,? says Dr Ahmed. Even if you
don?t have a serious skin gripe, managing
your mind will pay dividends in the long
run, as cortisol also accelerates ageing?
MOOD MONITOR
?Typically, a dermatological consultation
will focus just on the skin, but the whole
ethos of psychodermatology is to treat
the mind and skin as a whole,? says
Dr Ahmed. ?I ask my patients how
their mood is, do they feel tearful, are
they able to concentrate, how is their
The field of psychodermatology is also
giving rise to ?psychological skincare?.
Disciple was created by pyschotherapist
Charlotte Ferguson to tackle the effects of
stress, anxiety and low mood on the skin.
Charlotte treats women with anxiety and
depression, so sees first-hand the effect the
mind can have on the complexion. ?When
you treat someone?s psychological issues,
conditions like acne or psoriasis often clear
up. Skin looks fresher, facial muscles frown
less and the face is more open.?
After suffering from adult acne, Charlotte
began researching the correlation between
mood, hormones and breakouts, and
managed to clear up her own complexion
using a holistic mind-and-skin approach.
This led her to create a line of adaptogenbased skincare products, which harmonise
stressed-out skin and also work internally,
improving the body?s ability to cope with
stress. ?Adaptogens are potent compounds
that help balance the body by regulating
the adrenal stress response,? says Charlotte.
?Our blends of essential oils allow
adaptogens to reach the hypodermis and
the blood vessels.? Who knows, maybe in
the future we?ll be using moisturisers to
manage our minds?

sleep, their appetite, their work and

physical skin condition, treatment
involves psychological support, which
might be in the form of counselling,
cognitive behavioural therapy,
mindfulness or habit reversal.?
This kind of approach also
acknowledges the psychological effects
of having a skin issue in the first place.
?Chronic skin conditions can cause anxiety,
depression and low self-esteem. Imagine
having chronically itchy skin that doesn?t
allow you to sleep.
And it?s a vicious cycle ? the worse your
skin gets, the worse you feel, and the worse
you feel, the worse your skin becomes.
Psychodermatology helps break this cycle
in a way that treating the skin alone never
can. A 60-minute consultation with Dr
Ahmed at the Eudelo Clinic costs �0,

available at some NHS hospitals, so talk

Come summer, she takes a clarifying
approach. ?I wear SPF without fail, so I
have to be mindful to not breakout. For
this, I love all the acids ? glycolic [try
Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner [3],
�], salicylic and hyaluronic [try Sunday
Riley Tidal Cream [6], �] because they
actually really do refine and tighten pores.?
Model and singersongwriter, Karen Elson,
40, shares her skincare
tips, fragrant memories
and more?
Heady heart
Adorned with an art-deco birthstone
cap, the new Jo Malone x Karen Elson
Birthstones [2], �0, are a thing of pure
beauty. ?The lids are so heavy and feel so
luxurious, which is how perfume should
feel. Incense & Cedrat is a great heady,
night-time scent ? it?s seductive, and
I like seductive.?
Fragrance first
?My first memory of fragrance was going
into my grandmother?s bathroom and
spraying all of her bottles. I remember
that smell so well! Now, I don?t really have
one signature scent. I love Red Roses by
Jo Malone, it?s the perfect daytime go-to,
but I?ve also really got into Honeysuckle
& Davana [both � for 100ml].
Sometimes I?ll layer them, too.?
Skin wisdom
?When I first started modelling as a
teenager I worked with [legendary
make-up artist] Pat McGrath, who
introduced me to a bunch of products
that really helped with my problem skin.
She also said just don?t wear any make-up
when you?re not working, and now I don?t
overdo it on my skin because it doesn?t
need it. I always say to women, you can
have all the Botox and fillers in the world
but if you don?t have good skin texture,
it?s not going to do anything. Good skin
is the best foundation for everything.?
Seasonal switching
Different seasons call for switching up
skincare regimes, believes Karen. ?In
winter I love, love, love Vintner?s Daughter
Active Botanical Serum, �5. I?ll put
Cr鑝e De La Mer?s Moisturizing Cream
[1], �0, on after to lock in moisture.?
Fresh ends
?I?m always on the quest for thicker, longer
hair, but sadly I have frizzy, fine hair. So
I?ve found that having a little trim at the
ends makes it look healthier.? Karen also
swears by hair-growth supplements. ?They
really help ? get your blood tested by a
dermatologist because if you?ve got certain
deficiencies, like vitamin D or iron, it can
affect the quality of your hair.? We rate
Viviscal Maximum Strength Supplements

Ace your base
When it comes to foundation, Karen goes
for the bespoke option. ?I?m so fair that
in the past I?ve had to tailor foundations
to match my skin. However, brands are
now trying to be more inclusive with
their spectrum of shades, so it?s a lot easier
for me to find the right texture, tone
and coverage in one. I like By Terry?s
Sheer Expert Foundation [5], �, because
it?s lightweight and a perfect shade.?

THE LINE IS WONKY, there?s a faint

for the angle of that flick, well ? it?s just
all wrong. Welcome to feline flick group
therapy. We?re all friends here and, yes,
we?ve already gone through some of

getting eyeliner application right.
Our obsession is justified. ?A feline

LINE OF DUTY
?Those with a very open eye structure
and a flat orbital bone will find it easier
than those whose eyes are deep-set or
have a more prominent bone,? explains
make-up artist Hannah Martin; but
there are certain rules of thumb that
can help everyone.
A general golden rule is to look into
a mirror straight on with your eyes open,
and draw bit by bit. ?Ideally, you want the
line to look like the last long lash on your
upper lash line, so aim to follow that angle
out,? says Lynsey. ?To get it straight, begin
by applying a guideline marker dot where
you want it to extend to [roughly in the
socket line where the eye?s outer corner
lines up with the outer eyebrow tip] and
connect the dot to the lash line.? Total
novices who find it a struggle should look
down into a mirror held beneath the chin
and draw little millimetre strokes. ?That
way, you won?t have to fight your lashes
to get to the root,? says Hannah.
And if you make a mistake? Lynsey?s
top tip is to use cotton wool buds,
dipped in a non-oily eye make-up
remover (we love Gatineau?s Gentle
Eye Make-Up Remover, �), to help
clean up any errors and achieve that
perfect smooth edge; a simple trick that
makes getting two symmetrical flicks
that little bit simpler. And to finish?
Lashings of mascara, of course.

I?m going to give
up chocolate for
February ? who?s

increasingly frustrated that I can?t
kick my habit, plus if a bar of
Dairy Milk is 230 calories, that?s
115 calories a day, which equates
to over 800 extra calories a week,
and I?m sure that?s the reason the
zip on my jeans keeps undoing
itself. Nicola says it?s important
to recognise it?s not just about
chocolate but reducing our sweet
tooth in general. She suggests
changing to dark chocolate with
a minimum cocoa content of
70% as a starting point, which is
definitely less bitter than the 85%
stuff. ?It?s far easier to eat more
milk chocolate due to the sugar
and milk content,? she says.
The thing is, I know I need to eat
dark chocolate (and less of it), so
my advice is to find great quality
dark chocolate as it?s a) way tastier
and b) expensive, so you can?t
afford too much of it. My absolute
favourite is Pump Street?s finely
crafted chocolate ? the 75% cocoa
Jamaica chocolate, �25, is worth
selling a kidney for. Or Nicola
suggests making her ?Lifesaver
Biscuits? (recipe on nicola-moore.
com), which contain cacao powder
and cacao nibs. As the name
suggests, they are perfect for times
when willpower is wavering.
If, however, you feel that going
chocolate cold turkey is the only
way, then why not raise money for
a good cause at the same time?
The British Heart Foundation is
running a campaign this February
called DECHOX, challenging
us to give up chocolate for the
whole month and raise money for
life-saving research into heart and
circulatory disease, which causes
26% of all deaths in the UK
(that?s 160,000 lives lost a year).

have chocolate every single day. If
I run out, I start rooting around in
the kitchen cupboards in the hope
of finding a bit of last year?s Easter
egg or a random Celebration from
Christmas hidden behind the
biscuit tin. I don?t eat a whole
bar ? usually about three chunks
(note the word ?about? here, I am
clearly in denial), but it?s definitely
an addiction that has got worse

becomes an emotional decision,?
she says. ?Combine that with
melt-in-the-mouth cocoa, smooth
milk and fat from cocoa butter,
then add caffeine into the mix,

just want to eat more and more.?

LOOK UP
PL AY LI ST
Floating shelves hung near the ceiling, such
as these in Sarah?s kitchen, draw the eye up,
making your ceilings appear higher. Floorto-ceiling bookshelves have a similar effect.
GO BARE
A solid floor rather than
carpet makes a room
feel more spacious as
it reflects light. With
a timber floor, planks
placed lengthways
towards a window or
door will make the room
appear longer. If bare
floors feel too cold, add
rugs. A glass or Perspex
table allows you to see
through it, making the
room feel less busy, and
a round shape is compact.

go bare or use blinds.
When faced with
floor-to-ceiling glass,
hang curtains that
start just below the
ceiling and go all the
way down to the floor

trick that makes a

LIT UP
Use floor and table
lamps to brighten
corners so your whole
room is illuminated. If
you have a chimney
breast, lighting the
spaces on either side
will make your room
feel wider. A pendant
light on a long cord
will make the ceiling
appear higher. In a small
bedroom, go for wall
lights or pendant lights
hung low instead
of table lamps.
ADD INTEREST
Accessories overload
makes a small space feel
messy so pare back by
choosing one or two
surfaces. Stick to
a similar colour palette
or material, but don?t be
afraid of using pattern.
?Make decisions. There is
simply no room for this
and that,? says Sarah. A
few strategically placed
pieces will attract the eye,
and minimise attention
on the size of the room.

ON THE TILES
STYLING: PIA OLSEN/LIVING STORIES
Large tiles in a bathroom
reduce the number of grout
lines, making a bathroom feel
less cluttered. Keeping the same
tiles throughout the bathroom
will further enhance the feeling
of space. Sarah, with her love
of pattern, has combined big
marble tiles with smaller,
decorative ones, but using
them on the floor reduces their
space-shrinking impact, and
gives the bathroom personality.

Banish any January blues with J-Lo?s laugh-out-loud new comedy, Second Act
WHAT WE ALL need in the dark days
of January is a good old belly laugh with
our girlfriends. So make a date with
Jennifer Lopez, one of our favourite
Hollywood stars, who is bursting back
on to the big screen with sure-fire
box-office hit Second Act.
J-Lo plays 40-something Maya, who?s
intelligent, sassy and fizzing with ideas,
but stuck in a retail job with a glass
ceiling. She reaches breaking point
when she?s overlooked for promotion
at work ? thanks to her lack of a college
degree ? with the job going instead to
a less experienced male colleague.
But Maya?s fortunes are reversed when
the son of her best friend Joan (played by
Leah Remini on hilarious form), fabricates
Maya a new CV and online persona. Et
voila! Maya is suddenly a Harvard graduate
who speaks fluent Mandarin and hangs
out with the Obamas. Cue plenty
of hilarious moments when the new
and improved Maya lands the role of
consultant at a prestigious cosmetics firm.
In a story of working-class girl takes
on stuffy corporate snobs, Maya uses
?street smarts? rather than ?book smarts?
? plus a healthy dose of chutzpah ? to
stay one step ahead of the game.
Uproariously funny, with great one-liners,
but also poignant moments, like her
romance with baseball coach Trey
(Milo Ventimiglia) ? Second Act is the
feel-good comedy to get your 2019 off
to a flying start. So grab your girlfriends
and hit the cinema!
In cinemas nationwide from 25 January

Food, relationship
woes and the chance of
reconciliation ? Eating
With My Ex has all the
ingredients for success
SHORTLY AFTER Come Dine With
Me, the idea of awkward dinner party
TV became golden. What could be more
stressful than sitting down to eat with
strangers? How about strangers you might
fancy? Hence First Dates. And what
could be more stressful than even that?
How about dinner with someone who
broke your heart? Hence Eating With
My Ex. You might like to think of it as
Last Dates, a whole new crucible of
wince teatime TV.
Niall and Chloe were together for
three and a half years. A psychologist
would probably tell them they weren?t
ready to love someone else when they
didn?t yet quite know themselves. But
life got in the way. The last time Niall
and Chloe met, to try and rekindle their
obvious affection for one another, she
ended up in bed with his best mate. Ouch.
Picking over the bones of their little
love affair in a funky burger joint, each
plate comes replete with a question.
?Were we good together?? then ?Have
you moved on?? The climactic, ?What
made you cheat?? precedes the
d閚ouement, ?Will we see each other
again?? The plate acting as producer is
a new twist for awks dinner party TV, as
is the inevitable wistfulness of heartache
dissected. Watching a heartbroken young
man asking, ?Do you still love me?? across
a lurid, fizzy cocktail will never not
Chloe and Niall:
romance was on
the menu once.
Could it be again?
come with its own side order of pathos.
Eating With My Ex is quite a stressful
experience, though I was glued to the
screen throughout the first episode.
Because the other two couples featured
are both mid-twenties, it loses a little
of the brilliant demographic reach of
First Dates. Steph and Scearchia look
absolutely tailor-made for one another.
Jodie and Jason ? or Sharpie Major, as
the heavily inked Essex rapper tags himself
? actually look like they should never
have met in the first place. The coda at
the end of their hellish reconciliation
is beyond perfect, an adjunct fiction
wouldn?t dare invent.
Dissecting the end of a relationship, it
transpires, is just as riveting as waiting to
see if there is an initial spark. The beauty
of Eating With My Ex is, almost inevitably,
imagining yourself in the situation, hearing
all the foibles of love gone wrong, delivered
to camera. The actual horror.
Episodes drop on Wednesdays, on BBC Three
Holy moly
It?s been a while since
a Scandi-noir pricked the
interest (Scandi-noir itself
is now sounding very early2010s). Yet Ride Upon The
Storm has a winningly weird
ecclesiastical bent. What secrets
could a family tethered by Dad?s
profession as a priest possibly
hold? Given the slovenly
attitude of most Christian
faith systems this century
thus far, what could they not?

SHELF LIFE
NEW
RELEASE
THIS WEEK: Allow yourself to be uplifted
by this touching, tender ? and genuinely
hilarious ? tale of the pursuit of joy?
Professor Chandra Follows His Bliss
Rajeev Balasubramanyam
(� 12.99, C HATTO & WI NDUS)
Chandra is a stuffy, competitive Oxford academic
who has forgotten how to communicate with his
family, preferring professional point-scoring. So when
he is nearly killed in a road accident shortly after
being passed over for the Nobel Prize, he sort of?
unravels. He?s persuaded to visit West Coast retreat
Esalen, where he has a radical (and very Californian)
shift in perspective. A genuine look at what
happiness is or might be, and joyful take on grasping
second chances. Properly, heartwarmingly funny.

I felt so inspired reading The
cautious woman?s guide to a career
pivot (14 Jan) as I?ve recently done
just that. In November 2018 I gave
up my 16-year career in retail
merchandising to become a counsellor
and run my own business. I?ve been working and studying at
weekends and evenings around my full-time job since 2014 and
finally qualified in June 2018. I was having a really tough time
at work and, after thinking long and hard about quitting and
how I could support myself, I finally made the leap and it?s been
the best career decision of my life. I am happier, healthier and
loving my new life. I feel I am finally making a difference to the
world and also myself. For anyone who is in two minds about
whether to embark on a career change ? do it! It doesn?t matter
how long it takes you, it?s worth it in the end. Great piece about
female empowerment and making our own rules. Lauren

Is it ever OK to ask your partner
to lose weight? (14 Jan) made me
remember the day 12 years ago
my husband said he didn?t find
all 18 stone of me attractive and
asked what was I going to do
about it. It was just one of many
factors that set me on a path of
change. The speedy story is that
I lost 8 stone in a year and kicked
my decades-long eating disorder.
I also learned that I am more
than good enough and food is
never the solution to my issues.
I hope this may inspire others to
not always focus on the negativity
of weight comments. Good can
emerge sometimes. Sarah
Interesting feature: Become a
conscious shopper (14 Jan). Glad
to see successful efforts from

money and I can give clothes a
new lease of life at a reasonable

As ?psychodermatology?
comes to the fore,
Sophie Qureshi explores
why it could be time
to rethink your skin
IF YOU?VE EVER woken up with a

PHOTOG R A PH S K A RI N A T WI S S
spot the day you have to give a presentation
you?ve been stressing over for weeks, or
clocked the enviable glow on a newly
loved-up friend, it should come as no
surprise that our mind and mood have
a massive impact on the state of our
skin. Yet, surprisingly, up until now this
connection has been somewhat overlooked.
When the mirror presents us with spots,
eczema, or just a less-than-luminous
complexion, our usual response is to throw
products at the problem ? not to entertain
the idea that our mind could be the cause.
But a growing interest in psychodermatology
is set to change all that.
?Psychodermatology is the study of how
the mind and skin interact ? not only the
way your mental state affects your skin,
but also the psychological impact of skin
conditions like acne, rosacea and vitiligo,?
says Dr Alia Ahmed of London?s Eudelo
Clinic, who is qualified in both psychology
and dermatology, and is one of a new wave
of clinicians to combine the two. ?Our
thoughts and emotions affect our skin in
all sorts of ways, and we?re really missing
a trick if we don?t treat the two together.?
????? ??????????? ?????? "What's News" VK.COM/WSNWS
????? ??????????? ?????? "What's News" VK.COM/WSNWS
WHAT?S GETTING UNDER
YOUR SKIN?
?In the 21st century, we are only just
beginning to see psychodermatology
emerge as a subspeciality, because there
is now much more robust research to
support the mind-skin connection,? says
Dr Ahmed. It is now known, for example,
that the skin and the central nervous
system start from the same tissue ? both
develop from the ectoderm, the outer
layer of the embryo. And a host of studies
prove that our minds affect our skin in
all sorts of ways.
In one study conducted at California
State University, students were given music
samples to listen to: one triggering negative
emotions, and the other evoking positive
emotions. Researchers found the positive
music led to significant increases in skin
temperature, whereas the negative music
did the opposite.
In another study in Denmark,
researchers pricked subjects? skin with a
known allergen and then used hypnosis
to induce emotions of sadness, anger and
happiness. The subjects who were sad
became significantly more reactive to the

E AUT Y
H A P P Y- S K I N
HACKS
FACE HEALERS
allergen than those who were happy ? ie
feeling sad made their skin more sensitive.
So what does all this mean for you?
Basically, that anything that?s going on
with your skin could be triggered by what?s
going on in your head. Take breakouts, for
example. The more stressed you are, the
more cortisol is released in your body.
High cortisol prompts skin to produce
more sebum, which clogs your pores and
encourages acne-causing bacteria to thrive.
Inflammatory conditions like eczema,
rosacea and psoriasis also have a strong link
to mood. ?There?s well-documented evidence
that links these conditions to stress, and
they?re often associated with anxiety and
depression,? says Dr Ahmed. Even if you
don?t have a serious skin gripe, managing
your mind will pay dividends in the long
run, as cortisol also accelerates ageing?
MOOD MONITOR
?Typically, a dermatological consultation
will focus just on the skin, but the whole
ethos of psychodermatology is to treat
the mind and skin as a whole,? says
Dr Ahmed. ?I ask my patients how
their mood is, do they feel tearful, are
they able to concentrate, how is their
The field of psychodermatology is also
giving rise to ?psychological skincare?.
Disciple was created by pyschotherapist
Charlotte Ferguson to tackle the effects of
stress, anxiety and low mood on the skin.
Charlotte treats women with anxiety and
depression, so sees first-hand the effect the
mind can have on the complexion. ?When
you treat someone?s psychological issues,
conditions like acne or psoriasis often clear
up. Skin looks fresher, facial muscles frown
less and the face is more open.?
After suffering from adult acne, Charlotte
began researching the correlation between
mood, hormones and breakouts, and
managed to clear up her own complexion
using a holistic mind-and-skin approach.
This led her to create a line of adaptogenbased skincare products, which harmonise
stressed-out skin and also work internally,
improving the body?s ability to cope with
stress. ?Adaptogens are potent compounds
that help balance the body by regulating
the adrenal stress response,? says Charlotte.
?Our blends of essential oils allow
adaptogens to reach the hypodermis and
the blood vessels.? Who knows, maybe in
the future we?ll be using moisturisers to
manage our minds?

sleep, their appetite, their work and
relationships. As well as addressing the
physical skin condition, treatment
involves psychological support, which
might be in the form of counselling,
cognitive behavioural therapy,
mindfulness or habit reversal.?
This kind of approach also
acknowledges the psychological effects
of having a skin issue in the first place.
?Chronic skin conditions can cause anxiety,
depression and low self-esteem. Imagine
having chronically itchy skin that doesn?t
allow you to sleep.
And it?s a vicious cycle ? the worse your
skin gets, the worse you feel, and the worse
you feel, the worse your skin becomes.
Psychodermatology helps break this cycle
in a way that treating the skin alone never
can. A 60-minute consultation with Dr
Ahmed at the Eudelo Clinic costs �0,
but psychodermatology services are also
available at some NHS hospitals, so talk
to your GP.

Come summer, she takes a clarifying
approach. ?I wear SPF without fail, so I
have to be mindful to not breakout. For
this, I love all the acids ? glycolic [try
Mario Badescu Glycolic Acid Toner [3],
�], salicylic and hyaluronic [try Sunday
Riley Tidal Cream [6], �] because they
actually really do refine and tighten pores.?
Model and singersongwriter, Karen Elson,
40, shares her skincare
tips, fragrant memories
and more?
Heady heart
Adorned with an art-deco birthstone
cap, the new Jo Malone x Karen Elson
Birthstones [2], �0, are a thing of pure
beauty. ?The lids are so heavy and feel so
luxurious, which is how perfume should
feel. Incense & Cedrat is a great heady,
night-time scent ? it?s seductive, and
I like seductive.?
Fragrance first
?My first memory of fragrance was going
into my grandmother?s bathroom and
spraying all of her bottles. I remember
that smell so well! Now, I don?t really have
one signature scent. I love Red Roses by
Jo Malone, it?s the perfect daytime go-to,
but I?ve also really got into Honeysuckle
& Davana [both � for 100ml].
Sometimes I?ll layer them, too.?
Skin wisdom
?When I first started modelling as a
teenager I worked with [legendary
make-up artist] Pat McGrath, who
introduced me to a bunch of products
that really helped with my problem skin.
She also said just don?t wear any make-up
when you?re not working, and now I don?t
overdo it on my skin because it doesn?t
need it. I always say to women, you can
have all the Botox and fillers in the world
but if you don?t have good skin texture,
it?s not going to do anything. Good skin
is the best foundation for everything.?
Seasonal switching
Different seasons call for switching up
skincare regimes, believes Karen. ?In
winter I love, love, love Vintner?s Daughter
Active Botanical Serum, �5. I?ll put
Cr鑝e De La Mer?s Moisturizing Cream
[1], �0, on after to lock in moisture.?
Fresh ends
?I?m always on the quest for thicker, longer
hair, but sadly I have frizzy, fine hair. So
I?ve found that having a little trim at the
ends makes it look healthier.? Karen also
swears by hair-growth supplements. ?They
really help ? get your blood tested by a
dermatologist because if you?ve got certain
deficiencies, like vitamin D or iron, it can
affect the quality of your hair.? We rate
Viviscal Maximum Strength Supplements
[4], �.99, for one month?s supply.

Ace your base
When it comes to foundation, Karen goes
for the bespoke option. ?I?m so fair that
in the past I?ve had to tailor foundations
to match my skin. However, brands are
now trying to be more inclusive with
their spectrum of shades, so it?s a lot easier
for me to find the right texture, tone
and coverage in one. I like By Terry?s
Sheer Expert Foundation [5], �, because
it?s lightweight and a perfect shade.?

LINE OF DUTY
?Those with a very open eye structure
and a flat orbital bone will find it easier
than those whose eyes are deep-set or
have a more prominent bone,? explains
make-up artist Hannah Martin; but
there are certain rules of thumb that
can help everyone.
A general golden rule is to look into
a mirror straight on with your eyes open,
and draw bit by bit. ?Ideally, you want the
line to look like the last long lash on your
upper lash line, so aim to follow that angle
out,? says Lynsey. ?To get it straight, begin
by applying a guideline marker dot where
you want it to extend to [roughly in the
socket line where the eye?s outer corner
lines up with the outer eyebrow tip] and
connect the dot to the lash line.? Total
novices who find it a struggle should look
down into a mirror held beneath the chin
and draw little millimetre strokes. ?That
way, you won?t have to fight your lashes
to get to the root,? says Hannah.
And if you make a mistake? Lynsey?s
top tip is to use cotton wool buds,
dipped in a non-oily eye make-up
remover (we love Gatineau?s Gentle
Eye Make-Up Remover, �), to help
clean up any errors and achieve that
perfect smooth edge; a simple trick that
makes getting two symmetrical flicks
that little bit simpler. And to finish?
Lashings of mascara, of course.

PLEASE CAN WE TALK ABOUT ?
Chocolate
Health in

I?m going to give
up chocolate for
February ? who?s
with me?
76
increasingly frustrated that I can?t
kick my habit, plus if a bar of
Dairy Milk is 230 calories, that?s
115 calories a day, which equates
to over 800 extra calories a week,
and I?m sure that?s the reason the
zip on my jeans keeps undoing
itself. Nicola says it?s important
to recognise it?s not just about
chocolate but reducing our sweet
tooth in general. She suggests
changing to dark chocolate with
a minimum cocoa content of
70% as a starting point, which is
definitely less bitter than the 85%
stuff. ?It?s far easier to eat more
milk chocolate due to the sugar
and milk content,? she says.
The thing is, I know I need to eat
dark chocolate (and less of it), so
my advice is to find great quality
dark chocolate as it?s a) way tastier
and b) expensive, so you can?t
afford too much of it. My absolute
favourite is Pump Street?s finely
crafted chocolate ? the 75% cocoa
Jamaica chocolate, �25, is worth
selling a kidney for. Or Nicola
suggests making her ?Lifesaver
Biscuits? (recipe on nicola-moore.
com), which contain cacao powder
and cacao nibs. As the name
suggests, they are perfect for times
when willpower is wavering.
If, however, you feel that going
chocolate cold turkey is the only
way, then why not raise money for
a good cause at the same time?
The British Heart Foundation is
running a campaign this February
called DECHOX, challenging
us to give up chocolate for the
whole month and raise money for
life-saving research into heart and
circulatory disease, which causes
26% of all deaths in the UK
(that?s 160,000 lives lost a year).
I?m in? will you join me?

forget alcohol, fags or
prescription drugs ? I need to
check into rehab for chocolate
addiction. These days, I have to
have chocolate every single day. If
I run out, I start rooting around in
the kitchen cupboards in the hope
of finding a bit of last year?s Easter
egg or a random Celebration from
Christmas hidden behind the
biscuit tin. I don?t eat a whole
bar ? usually about three chunks
(note the word ?about? here, I am
clearly in denial), but it?s definitely
an addiction that has got worse
since having a baby a year ago.
What?s more, I?m not talking
about ?good? dark chocolate here
? I can?t get enough of full-on
lardy Dairy Milk.
And I?m not alone ? according
to Mintel, around eight million
people in the UK last year ate
chocolate every day. Nutritionist
Nicola Moore says chocolate is
addictive for many reasons. ?The
sugar sparks a chemical reaction in
the brain, which means chocolate
becomes an emotional decision,?
she says. ?Combine that with
melt-in-the-mouth cocoa, smooth
milk and fat from cocoa butter,
then add caffeine into the mix,
which is mildly addictive, and you
just want to eat more and more.?
What I would like to know is
how do I give it up? I?m becoming
Teatime treat

ONE-STOP
COLOUR
Painting your walls and
ceiling (including skirting
and cornicing) the same
colour, as Sarah has
done here, makes a room
appear larger as the lines
blur and there are no
contrasts to draw the eye.
Sarah has gone for a pale
blue; shades from this
spectrum plus grey work
particularly well.

Sarah?s sofa bed (innovationliving.com)

living as furniture that?s similar in shade to
the walls around it creates a sense of space.

LOOK UP
PL AY LI ST
Floating shelves hung near the ceiling, such
as these in Sarah?s kitchen, draw the eye up,
making your ceilings appear higher. Floorto-ceiling bookshelves have a similar effect.
GO BARE
A solid floor rather than
carpet makes a room
feel more spacious as
it reflects light. With
a timber floor, planks
placed lengthways
towards a window or
door will make the room
appear longer. If bare
floors feel too cold, add
rugs. A glass or Perspex
table allows you to see
through it, making the
room feel less busy, and
a round shape is compact.

table at westelm.co.uk.

For smaller windows
go bare or use blinds.
When faced with
floor-to-ceiling glass,
hang curtains that
start just below the
ceiling and go all the
way down to the floor
? another styling
trick that makes a
ceiling appear higher.
LIT UP
Use floor and table
lamps to brighten
corners so your whole
room is illuminated. If
you have a chimney
breast, lighting the
spaces on either side
will make your room
feel wider. A pendant
light on a long cord
will make the ceiling
appear higher. In a small
bedroom, go for wall
lights or pendant lights
hung low instead
of table lamps.
ADD INTEREST
Accessories overload
makes a small space feel
messy so pare back by
choosing one or two
surfaces. Stick to
a similar colour palette
or material, but don?t be
afraid of using pattern.
?Make decisions. There is
simply no room for this
and that,? says Sarah. A
few strategically placed
pieces will attract the eye,
and minimise attention
on the size of the room.

IDEAS
Key to a small space looking
spacious is keeping it
clutter-free. ?I love every
centimetre of my home
because I?ve thought about
where everything should
be,? says Sarah. Placing
objects symmetrically helps.
Here, Sarah has hung a pair
of pendant lights above
a retro sideboard with
the circular shape of the
artwork reflected in the
bowls, all of which are
glass, so it doesn?t feel busy.
