very year, the GLAMOUR Women of the Year Awards, in association with Next, is like organising a massive wedding. It’s huge; it’s hectic; yes, it’s stressful and wildly unpredictable at times. But for all of us who work on it each year, it regularly gifts us some of our most memorable career highlights. As we celebrate the event’s incredible 13th year, I thought it would be fun to look back over some of my own personal highlights. And let us all have a laugh at my noughties hair. Every year, the GLAMOUR Awards celebrate the women we love – as voted by you. In fact, you cast almost 700,000 votes this year, which is phenomenal. And every year, I find it so cheering and inspiring. Our winners are clever, funny, strong, powerful, generous, endless combinations of all these traits and more. And that says all you need to know about the impeccable taste and decision-making powers of GLAMOUR readers everywhere.
2014 It’s important to have regular breast exams. #politespin

2013 Rebel and I are from the same area of Sydney. This is an in-joke about that, that’s quite hard to explain. But I will treasure this photo forever. 2011 Kristen Wiig and Melissa McCarthy got emotional when I told them that the week before, I’d taken the GLAMOUR team to see their new film, Bridesmaids. They were still nervous about it being a hit!
2010 Anna Kendrick won my Editor’s Special Award. I had to run of from my backstage duties with her because James Corden and Sir Patrick Stewart were having a row onstage. I’ve worried ever since that she thinks I’m rude.
2009 Just chatting to Adele. #NBD #lifegoals
2007 During the Desperate Housewives run, Teri Hatcher was a real champion of the Awards and came three years in a row! This was about the time we suggested going on to pole dancing at a gay club. Teri was up for it.
2005 Introducing me, host Jonathan Ross joked that I “bent over backwards” for him before the show. At eight months pregnant, if only. I’ll always be grateful to Prada for making me a maternity dress that year!
2008 Everyone’s got pink hair these days. Lily Allen was ahead of her time. She will kill me if I mention that she left by being thrown over a fence and bundled into a cab, ‘tired and emotional’. Oops.

2004 The first ever GLAMOUR Awards. I was so nervous, I don’t remember a thing, to be honest. Apparently David Schwimmer was there!

I found When Did You Last Have Sex? really reassuring. My partner of three years and I have only had sex a handful of times this year. My friends made negative comments and it had me worried. I now realise that it’s OK, every relationship is unique and the passion is definitely still there. Kezie, by email This month’s star letter wins an awardwinning waving wand worth £99.95.

@PipsMiniTwee Love @GlamourMagUK The May 15th Birthday issue is fab, great articles, enjoying it so far. Happy 15th guys!
Dating? Mum knows best… I really loved Dating Secrets From My Mum, in your May issue. My parents recently divorced, and the idea of seeing my mum with another man really scares me, but reading your article has made me see the scenario in a whole new light. I never thought my mum might be better at the dating game than me! Jenny, by email

Olly Alexander 6am The bus jolts to a stop at Wembley Arena. On tour, we travel through the night and arrive at our next venue in the morning; it’s like being on a very un-glam cruise ship, crossed with Spice World. 6.30am Strong cofee, check the news on my phone and, out of habit, Twitter. Beyoncé still hasn’t followed me back. 7.30am I’m a bit more awake, so I start working on some music. On tour, my mornings are free, so I try to use the early starts to be creative. 9am To the catering van for breakfast. We have amazing caterers, so it’s easy to overindulge with a fry-up. But I make myself choose fruit and poached eggs. 11.20am I can be so lazy on tour, but I love workout DVDs. I grab our backing singers and make them join in. 1.15pm Stufed peppers for lunch – I’m vegetarian – then
interviews to promote our first album, Communion, before soundcheck. 4.40pm I end up falling into a YouTube rabbit hole of Céline Dion and Mariah Carey compilations. I could watch their live performances all day.
“I spend too long doing my hair and smearing glitter on my face” 22
7.30pm Start getting ready. We’re not on until 9pm, but I always spend way too long doing my hair and smearing glitter on my face. In the dressing room, the band always argue over what to listen to; I want Destiny’s Child but we compromise and put on Little Dragon. 9pm Showtime! Walking out at Wembley feels incredible. There’s a sea of lights from all the phones. 11pm Nothing beats the rush of an amazing show, so we need to unwind. I go
back to our tour bus for a couple of beers with the band and some Mario Kart. 12.15am Crawl into bed and wrap my silk scarf round my hair – I know, but bed-head can be a nightmare since I bleached it. Pop in my headphones – I have to listen to a podcast before falling asleep. My go-to is the BBC World Service podcast. Sounds geeky, but it makes me feel at home while we’re away, and I start to drift of. yearsandyearsoficial.com

ome actresses never escape the ‘funny friend’ pigeonhole – but in the past five years, Melissa McCarthy has well and truly left behind supporting roles to become one of the few women in Hollywood who can single-handedly open a major studio film. This month’s The Boss is set to be her eighth straight hit since her Bridesmaids breakthrough: the movie, about a disgraced tycoon who sets out to build a Girl-Scout cookie empire, knocked blockbuster Batman v Superman of the top spot in the US. That’s a big deal. It’s now clear: Melissa has the biggest and most loyal fanbase of any actress today. It’s the reason cop comedy The Heat, and her Bond parody, Spy, earned nearly half a billion dollars between them. And it’s why snify reviews can’t touch her. Tammy – a heartfelt road-trip caper – shrugged of the critics to rake in $100 million, five times its budget. So, why do we love her? The zinging, filthy wit? The range of lovably clueless characters? Or is it really because she doesn’t give a hoot? The joke’s on every other Hollywood star who tries too hard. Last year, Melissa was the world’s thirdhighest-paid actress, bringing in $23 million (Scarlett Johansson was second; Jennifer Lawrence was number one). But with Melissa’s big summer project, Ghostbusters, likely to scare up a fortune at the box ofice, that might be about to change.

Orange Is The New Black It feels like forever since our last stint at Litchfield Penitentiary but, with the arrival of the fourth season, we’re still invested, especially after witnessing Piper’s badass transformation. With Season Three, we delved into the characters’ backstories, with fewer bust-ups in the prison – but things are set to get dark for the inmates, with new conflict and cutbacks making life tougher than ever. From June 17, Netflix

This addictive thriller about a group of super-hackers might have slipped under your radar.

This supernatural horror from The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman follows Kyle Barnes (Gone Girl’s Patrick Fugit), a man plagued by demonic possession, and the preacher (Philip Glenister) who tries to save him. Up there with American Horror Story in the terror stakes. June 7, Fox

NINA SIMONE Singer, songwriter Nina Simone, Denise Gough, and civil-rights activist Judy Garland “I recognised myself in this darkskinned woman. Her life was intensely felt. Loving. Angry. Spiritual. Sexy. Heartbroken. Anyone who loves music will have a ‘Nina’ moment; Four Women was mine.” JUDY GARLAND Actress and singer “The voice goes without saying, but I love her acting. It’s her vulnerability in one of my favourite films, A Star Is Born, and absolute showmanship in the routines that I keep coming back to watch. ‘Hello, everybody. This is Mrs Norman Maine’ slays me every time.” DENISE GOUGH Olivier Award-winning actress “An extraordinary actress, she is having ‘her moment’ in a play called People, Places And Things. To see her having huge success after a decade of work is so exciting.” JOCELYN JEE ESIEN Comedian and star of 3 Non-Blondes “You may know her as Little Miss
Jocelyn from her BBC TV show. She is the first British black woman to have her own TV comedy show, which for a certain generation is now cult.” ANAÏS NIN Cuban essayist “A fascinating woman in touch with her desires, she explored them honestly through her essays. She’d be a rock-and-roll feminist blog star today. My favourite quote: ‘Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.’” PROFESSOR PUMLA GOBODOMADIKIZELA Professor at University of the Free State, South Africa “I had the privilege of playing her in an adaptation of her book, A Human Being Died That Night, about an
encounter she had with one of South Africa’s most notorious criminals. Her work, helping perpetrators and victims of crime find forgiveness, is inspiring.” SARAH McGUINNESS Director, producer, screenwriter and musician “Sarah is a maker of stories and there are parallels in our lives as immigrant women. She made a documentary, Noma: Forgiving Apartheid, about how I met my father after 30 years apart. Documentary-making is not easy; I’m in awe of her tenacity.” NOMANONO ISAACS & MANDISA DUMEZWENI Mother and sister “Mama wrote a book about her early life, Escaping Apartheid; A Letter To My Mother; she didn’t see her mother for 25 years and raised two daughters on her own. Since my sister, Mandisa, and I have become single mothers ourselves, I’ve grown to truly appreciate our story.” Catch Noma in Harry Potter And The Cursed Child in London’s West End from July. harrypottertheplay.com GLAMOUR

Opt for strip lashes, rather than individual bunches, for quick glam. Look for ones with a thin band – they have more flexibility, which makes them easier to apply. Wispies £5.49 Ardell are brilliant, even for lash newbies.

Fiction vs real life
Fanatic for fiction?
Mad for memoirs?
Jessie Burton’s 2014 novel, The Miniaturist, was the fastest-selling debut since Fifty Shades Of Grey. No pressure for the follow-up, then. Happily, The Muse is another corker. A simmering historical love story, it’s set in both bohemian 1930s Malaga and the Swinging ’60s London art world. Nina Stibbe’s historical fiction, meanwhile, comes with a dollop of nostalgia and very British humour: Paradise Lodge is about a 1970s provincial teenager called Lizzie who works in an old people’s home and makes some unlikely friendships while she’s there. With Emma Cline’s debut, The Girls, we rewind to hippie-era California, tracking a lifechanging summer for bored high-schooler Evie. Lena Dunham loves it – always a good sign. Finally, back to 2016: Vinegar Girl is veteran novelist Anne Tyler’s excellent reworking of The Taming Of The Shrew. Twentysomething Kate doesn’t let any man dictate her life – or does she? Vinegar Girl is part of the Hogarth Shakespeare project, a series of retooled Bard plays – and we can’t wait for Gillian ’Gone Girl’ Flynn’s Hamlet next year.
Music journalist and GLAMOUR contributor Sylvia Patterson has interviewed everyone from Adele to Eminem, and her raucous memoir, I’m Not With The Band, brims with anecdotes and musings on fame. Her rare audience with Prince – discussing shoes and, um, erections – is especially fascinating. Meanwhile, journalist Bryony Gordon – who’s not afraid to be 100% honest in print, as her first memoir, The Wrong Knickers, proved – tells all about her problems with OCD, bulimia and depression in Mad Girl. It’s an honest, wry tale that’ll resonate with many women. US actress and comedian Tig Notaro cuts to the chase in I’m Just A Person. After sufering the sudden death of her mother, a break-up and breast cancer all in the same year, she turned to stand-up to process it all; the book is outrageously funny, given the thematic darkness. Conversely, Feministing.com founder Jessica Valenti is deadly serious in Sex Object, her raw polemic-meets-memoir documenting “living in a world that hates women”.

From Eddy and Patsy’s disdain of public transport and confusion over what a wallet is – if you have a company card, you just don’t need one – it’s the perfect send-up. The pair’s OTT mix of Christian Lacroix, Pucci and Moschino was way ahead of the curve, too. They did logo mania and Gucci maximalism before anyone else. Who could pull of JW Anderson’s rufles and out-there cocktailwear better? Patsy is the prototype Saint Laurent model, fag in hand, ripped fishnets and tiny leather miniskirt. Eddy’s love for tracksuits and heels? Very S/S16. The sportswear, oversized shades, leopard-print coats – Ab Fab fashion is here to stay. Cheers to that.

“A taxi ride is an education”
multicultural society makes us stronger. It’s one of the things I am most proud of when I’m in London, and I find people’s stories about how they came to Britain fascinating. It’s tempting in a big city to keep your head down and get on with your life, but I try to make an efort to learn about the people I share the city with. And you know the best place to learn about other cultures? In a taxi. I live in America currently, but I spend a lot of time in London and I still consider it home. On a recent trip back, I decided to have a proper conversation with every Uber cab driver I met. Here are just a few of the great people I got to know. It started with Akbar. I asked him how he was and he smiled and said, “I have learned
to keep smiling, and as long as I do that, everything will be OK.” Of course, this made it quite clear that things weren’t always OK for Akbar, so I investigated further. “And what was it that stopped you smiling for you to come to that realisation?” I asked. Akbar went on to tell me how he came from Iran back in the ’70s. He was wealthy, a businessman doing car deals for Iranians here in London. He had a big house, he took his kids on nice holidays, life was good. Then our government sanctioned all business dealings between Britain and Iran, and, within one week, his bank account was shut down. He lost his house, his car and hasn’t been on holiday since. Now he earns very little, but he smiles because his family is healthy. I got into his car with a lot GLAMOUR

He told me that the work thing was annoying, but it didn’t really matter, not in the grand scheme of life. I sat back and felt the stress leave my body, like he’d cast a spell over me. I asked Ahmad how he copes when things go wrong. He told me to close my eyes and pressed play on his car stereo. The tape played a long, continuous note, and he told me to join in. So I did. I sat in the back of his Toyota staring into my third eye, like he told me to, chanting along with him and his tape. It was weird and unexpected, but by the time I got to my destination, I honestly felt like a diferent person. I thanked him, then stood on the pavement and laughed out loud for a full five minutes at what a bizarre but brilliant experience I had just had. I felt really lucky; it changed my day. There is a lot of ill feeling about immigration, and a lot of fear. But often fear is just a lack of understanding.

Men, Sex & Love
YOU YOU YO U
Ikea-proof your relationship…
illy, Kallax and, er, Förhöja (not to be said after two wines) might be notorious Swedish row-makers, but it’s not just choosing side tables that can raise tempers between couples. Monmouth University found any tricky task can rattle a relationship – causing us to say 15% fewer nice things about each other. The solution? Manage stress before your fightor-flight response swaps patience for battle-mode.
THE HAZARDOUS ENVIRONMENT: IKEA The enemy Amy Poehler joked that Ikea was Swedish for argument. Kind of true: psychologist Dr Ramani Durvasula heard so many reports of couples’ fights that she made observational visits, discovering the bed aisles triggered sex rows (“We only sleep in it anyway”) and kitchens raised chore inequality. Taste clashes escalated into compatibility: do we want the same lounge/look/life? Defuse the tension When exasperated – and a shopping maze the size of five football pitches will do it – we can blame our partner’s flaws (“You never pay attention”). To prevent the blame-anger-attack cycle, “Stand united against the common enemy: the store, not each other,” says survivor Stephanie, 28. “Treat it as a smash-and-grab raid: research online, know your codes (with a plan B) and do big items first. You have to see it as a bonding experience, with the furniture the badge of honour.”
THE BATTLE POSTURE: TRAFFIC JAM The enemy 22 minutes: that’s how long car brand Seat found it took couples to fight. “It’s because we look out of the window,” explains psychologist Dr Becky Spelman of 44
The Private Therapy Clinic. “The lack of eye contact eliminates the personal touch, making it easier to make cutting remarks.” Defuse the tension Engage visually. “Looking at each other’s faces, you see the subtle cues that indicate trickier topics,” says Dr Spelman, who advises keeping ‘big’ topics – money, sex, family, chores/ efort – out of the car. Saira, 30, swears by a gap-fill. “Most weekends, we travel to family and I joke that podcasts have saved our relationship. They force listening over nitpicking; I press play before either of us questions whether the gridlocked M6 was the right choice (Stuf You Should Know and My Dad Wrote A Porno are joint favourites).”
THE PERFECTION TRAP: BOOKING A HOLIDAY The enemy According to Ebookers, 37% of couples fall out at the booking stage. Dr Spelman believes it’s the emotional burden – “the pressure for it all to be ‘perfect’ – those expectations can explode into an argument,” she says. Defuse the tension Couple Roxane Gergaud and Richard Dana set up Doris & Dicky, a curated website of budget boutique hotels, because they felt overwhelmed by research. “Before you plan, know what you’d both like: beach flop? Culture? If both, what’s the ratio? Discuss booking budget and spending money,” says Gergaud. Then share the load: if it’s long-haul and you stay at four places, take two hotels and activities each, or alternate shorter getaways. A final point: “Ask, ‘Is there anywhere you don’t want to go?’” says Jenny, 33. “You’re indirectly asking where they’ve been with an ex that they might not want to revisit. It saves you falling in love with Venice – only to find they broke up there.”

9 seriously hot turn-ons …THAT ARE MORE FUN THAN A NIGHT OF BINGE-WATCHING SERIES IN YOUR PJs (YES, REALLY) as Netflix and Chill turned into just Netflix and Chill? You’re not alone. Research shows 65% of us watch TV in bed, and one in five do it to avoid having sex. De-press-ing. The good news? We can get ourselves in the mood, even if we’re too busy, knackered or not fussed. Here, GLAMOUR readers share what works for them…
“We use the Pillow Play app, which audio-guides you through intimate experiences together. It’s the perfect foreplay after a long day at work.”
“I’ve been with my boyfriend for four years, so that initial can’t-keep-our-handsof-each-other stuf has changed. For me, focusing on kissing is a great way to initiate being physical. The slow build-up is a big turn-on and inevitably leads to sex.” Vicky, 28
“When we need a kick-start, we use a cam girl on xxxpanded.com to talk to us for about ten minutes. She’ll tell my partner what to do to me, or visa versa. It works because it takes the pressure of.” Jules, 33 “Sometimes, it’s about being upfront with each other. I can’t – and don’t want to – have ‘swinging-from-thechandelier’ sex all the time. But instead of saying, ‘I’m too tired’, I tell my boyfriend: ‘I want you, but I might not be a sexual dynamo this time.’ It’s a great way to ease into a lazy (but sexy) spooning session.” Sophie, 28
“If he’s up for it, but I’m not, my favourite thing is to watch and listen to him masturbate under the covers, in the dark. He gets to come, and I enjoy that intimate, half-asleep feeling of him brushing up against me as he’s touching himself.” Ellen, 23
“Watching porn together and masturbating at the same time always works for us. Sometimes we’ll make it fun and have a race to see who comes first.”
Raquel, 26 “For me, sex is a bit like Pilates: the more I do it, the more I want it. Even if it’s just a quick fumble on the sofa, that usually stokes the fire for something sexier later on.”
“Taking time to shave my legs, choosing my best lingerie and lighting some candles all serves as foreplay. It gets my head in ‘that’ place. I’ll also send him a sext telling him what I want to happen when we’re together. This way, both of our expectations are managed.”
Jade, 26 “We set aside one night a week for ‘us’. We’ll go for dinner, have some wine and talk. Scheduled sex might seem unromantic, but our lives are busy, and at least this way the chance of sex is 50% more likely compared to any other night.” Juno, 29

How to get a job (without applying for one)
By Anna Hart. lopata.co.uk; personalcareermanagement.com; editorialintelligence.com
TURNS OUT NETWORKING MAY JUST BRING THAT UNDER-THE-RADAR DREAM ROLE TO YOU
DON’T DISS THE DAY JOB When talking about your current/ previous job, it’s fine to say you’re ready for a new challenge, but keep it positive and professional. “Employers know that the way you talk about your old boss is likely to be the way you'll talk about your current boss down the line,” says career coach Corinne Mills. “Chances are, they’ll think the problem is you, not your old company. Also, bosses talk.”
top scanning the job ads: you’re now a lot more likely to land your next role through networking. Don’t cringe: that doesn’t mean schmoozing at stufy events, business card in one hand, cocktail in the other. Research shows up to 80% of vacancies are now filled through recommendations. “It’s win-win: employers find candidates at a lower cost by engaging staf in the search; jobseekers bypass the CV filtering and interview process,” says networking strategist Andy Lopata. Here’s how to crowdsource your next role:
PRE-EMPT THE JOB AD
DRAW YOUR DARTBOARD
COFFEE IS NEVER JUST COFFEE
Plot out your network by drawing a series of circles, starting with your closest allies, spreading out to other people you know. “Don’t assume that someone can’t help you simply because of their job, or their relationship to you,” says Lopata. “People have lives beyond the lives they have with you. Your cousin could live next door to your dream employer.” Let everyone know you’re looking for a new role.
Don’t be fooled: an informal meeting with someone in your field could wind up being a surprise job interview. “The key to networking is always being prepared to talk about the industry you love, and where you fit in,” says Julia Hobsbawm, founder of editorialintelligence.com. “You should always be able to answer basic questions about what you want to do, while showing an interest in what they do. This fosters intimacy.” Answering, “I’m not really sure” to a question about your career is a wasted opportunity for someone to help. Don’t expect to wing it.
PREPARE AN ‘ELEVATOR PITCH’
You’ve heard your dream company is expanding, or a position has come up. “Now’s the time to ask someone in your network who knows the hiring manager if they’d be comfortable introducing you,” says Lopata. Don’t worry about being too forward. “Employers like referrals. After all, faced with two candidates equal in every other way, who would you recruit: the person whose CV has been submitted cold, or someone recommended by a trusted associate?” adds Lopata.
You never know when a networking opportunity will arise, so rehearse a pithy 60-second description of who you are, and what role you’re looking for. “Cover your current position, why a particular sector, role or company appeals, and why you have the experience, talent and mindset for that role,” says Lopata. Don’t imagine you’re “keeping your options open” by being vague; if you can’t tell somebody what you want, how can they help you get it?

6 micro-steps to make over your life THE SECRET TO POSITIVE – AND LASTING – CHANGE? THINK SMALL AND START NOW
orget “I need to quit my job and do yoga on the top of a mountain.” Research from Stanford University suggests ‘micro-actions’ are the best way to create lasting change. A micro-what-now? “An activity so small and simple that you can complete it almost instantly,” says Nelli Lähteenmäki, co-author of The Book Of YOU. “These small wins form new neural connections in your brain, which makes it easier to nail bigger goals.” So, what’s bothering you?
happy hormone.” Still down on yourself? “Learn one thing about how your body works – it’s the key to appreciating it.” Did you know that tears of grief are structurally diferent to the ones we cry when chopping an onion? Mind. Blown.
“I HATE MY JOB. I HATE MY JOB”
“LIFE WOULD BE WAY BETTER IF I WAS ON A BEACH” “Getting five more minutes of fresh air daily can improve your quality of life more than an annual holiday,” says Professor Paul Dolan, author of Happiness By Design. “Think about it: you feel the benefit 365 times, not just for two weeks,” he adds. “Nature grabs and retains your attention in positive ways because it’s constantly changing.”
“I WISH I HAD A BETTER BODY” “Break that vicious thought by doing something physical in appreciation of your body, now,” says Lähteenmäki. “Dance for one minute or hug your best friend – both actions trigger serotonin, the 52
“ARGH! WHY CAN’T I CONCENTRATE?” “I’M RUBBISH AT SAVING” We hear you. Remember, think small. Take something you buy most days – a last-minute chocolate bar – and “cut it out slowly”, says Lähteenmäki. “Once a week, then twice, then every other day until it’s routine.” That can save you £25 a month. “It’s about getting a better handle on your purchasing habits and creating a positive ripple efect on your finances.”
“It’s hard to make progress on priorities when an email interrupts you every 30 seconds,” says Lähteenmäki. Scientists call this “switching cost” – every time you shift your attention, your brain has to reorient itself, screwing your concentration. The micro-remedy? “Turn of one or more alerts right now, then remove the alerting app that distracts you most (say, WhatsApp) from your smartphone homepage, so you don’t constantly see that red dot.”
“I’LL NEVER MEET A DECENT GUY” Here’s a prime example of how to slice an overall goal into manageable chunks. “First, break it down, bite-sized, like going on a night out where you’ll meet new people, then further down into a micro-action that might lead to a night out, like texting a friend who could be a good wingwoman,” says Dolan. “Your aim is to do something small right now which could bring you a step further towards meeting potential partners.”

Do you, though? Or “perhaps you’re caught in the behavioural ‘moaning’ spiral of a 9-5 that makes every aspect of your job seem pessimistic,” says Caroline Arnold, author of Small Move, Big Change. “Each time you go to complain, do the opposite and be the first to say something good about a client, meeting or task.” She’s not saying to never grumble (impossible), but this tiny tinker can subconsciously shift your happier-at-work dial.

The Formation World Tour Workout YOU HAVE AS MANY HOURS IN THE DAY AS BEYONCE; NOW YOU HAVE THE EXCLUSIVE WORKOUT SHE RELIES ON eyoncé makes a lot of things look efortless. But the two-hour performances she does night after night are anything but easy. So before setting of on her Formation World Tour, she turned to her trainer, Marco Borges, to build endurance. Try these moves – Beyoncé’s moves, to be exact – and you’ll get a power boost too. Do the full routine three times a week to see (and feel) results in six weeks.
UP YOUR ENERGY Beyoncé gets tough by boxing and swinging big, weighted ropes. “You run out of gas fast; by pushing through [that fatigue], you develop a ton of endurance,” says Marco. An equipmentfree option? Explosive push-ups. Get in a push-up position, bend your elbows, and lower your chest towards the floor. Press back up, pushing of your hands at the top to ‘pop’ an inch above the ground. Do 4 sets of 8 to 10 reps.
By Shaun Dreisbach. Photographs: Getty Images, Rex Features
“Sprints are ideal for building stamina and explosiveness, which B needs to move across the stage,” says Marco, who has her alternate a one-minute sprint with two minutes of brisk walking for 30 minutes in total.
BUILD STRENGTH One of Borges’ favourite moves is the kettlebell squat-and-press. “It’s an exercise that hits all the major muscles. If you did nothing else, you’d still get a great workout,” he says. Stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, holding a dumbbell at your chest, elbows tucked in at the sides. Squat down until your elbows touch your knees. Drive hips forward to stand up, lifting the weight overhead. Do 4 sets of 15 reps.
WHAT BEYONCE EATS AFTER A WORKOUT Marco makes sure his fitness queen gets plant-based protein, like a smoothie made of pea protein powder, almond milk, frozen fruit and spinach. “It helps her muscles recover,” he explains.
Wonder how Beyoncé pulls of that choreography in heels? Try her single-leg step-ups: step up onto a sturdy chair, bring your left knee up to your chest, and return to the start. Do 4 sets of 15 reps, switch sides, and repeat.
BOOST FLEXIBILITY “I stretch B at the end of every workout,” says Marco. Grab a towel and lie on the floor. Bend and lift your right leg, looping the towel over the arch of the foot. Straighten your leg, gently pulling the towel down. Hold the towel with your right hand and drop your leg on to the right. Switch to your left hand and bring your leg across to the left. Hold each for 30 seconds. Repeat with other leg. GLAMOUR

My boyfriend hates the smell of tan and always complains, but I love the way it makes me feel when I’m finished. Can you help? (I can’t bear his moaning!) Fear not. The latest generation of St.Tropez formulas come with a NEW mood-boosting fragrance (including clean notes of fresh apple, bergamot and jasmine) for no self-tan smell. Also try St.Tropez Self Tan Express Mousse, showering of in 1-3 hours.
“Even though I am blonde with fair skin, the tan still looked natural. I received lots of comments from people asking if I had been away, as I looked really healthy and tanned” – GLAMOUR READER
How much should I put on at any one time to get an even and non-streaky result? On average, 3 pumps per arm, 6 per leg, 5 for torso and décolletage. Repeat. Half a pump mixed with moisturiser for your face. Note: spread the tan on your body lengthways (never circles). Let the first coat dry before applying the second.
I love a tanned face, but I’ve always thought tanning products dried out your skin. Is there a way to get around this? Use St.Tropez Luxe Facial Oil – it’s super hydrating, non-pore blocking, and the brazil-nut-based oil gives skin a natural, golden colour. It also hides signs of fatigue, stress and lifts your complexion overnight.

Can you please explain the difference between your mousse, lotion, spray and oil? Do they have different end results? Why would I use one over another? It all depends on your preference of product. As a rule, we say a spray is the closest product to having a professional spray tan. This gives the lightest colour out of all three. A mousse is quick-drying and easy to apply and is a great product to start with. A lotion gives rich, deep colour with intense hydration.

“ We get high to have sex”
EVERY MONTH, A DATE IS CIRCLED IN JOANNA’S* DIARY. It’s usually the penultimate Friday; her boyfriend, Mark, gets supplies on his way home and they settle in for date night. Well, their version of date night: the supplies being a gram of cocaine and the date activity being sex. “We stay up all night, doing coke and having sex,” the 33-year-old broker enthuses. “It’s our treat. It keeps us connected when the rest of the month is just work and the gym and being boring.” A few postcodes away, another couple enjoy what they call ‘chem bed’ – taking MDMA (ecstasy) before sex. “Some of my best-ever sex has been on MDMA,” explains one half of the eight-year relationship, Georgie, 30, a consultant. “You’re hornier and feel these loved-up, he’s-amazing vibes, but physically your sensitivities are really heightened, too. You’re super-relaxed, tingly, loose, and more sensitive to 60
touch and temperature and diferent sensations. Even having your arm stroked can feel orgasmic.” Neither woman fits the stereotype of the experimental teen or student user: one could secure you a mortgage; the other is responsible for million-pound-turnover firms. The fact both prefer drugs to alcohol as a sex enhancer – “you’re not sloppy, all over the place, and he hasn’t gone soft,” says Georgie – is a sign that high sex is becoming mainstream. Take Instagram: Foria Pleasure – a cannabis-oil lube that claims to heighten orgasms – has 10k followers, while

CHEMSEX – IT’S NOT AS NICHE AS YOU THINK, SAYS GEMMA ASKHAM. THE TRUTH? NEW RESEARCH SAYS A LOT OF ITS FANS ARE JUST LIKE YOU…
drug-sex hashtags are commonplace – #highsex, #sexdrugs and #highgasm have been posted some 20,000 times. But the biggest indicator of the relationship between drugs and sex comes from the medical community. In November, Hannah McCall, an NHS specialist nurse in sexual health and HIV services, published an article in the British Medical Journal calling for chemsex – sex under the influence of psychoactive drugs – to become a public health priority among a subculture of the gay community, where stats say it’s most frequently practised. (One study
found 10% of gay men had had chemsex in the previous four weeks.) The trend is for multi-day sex parties where attendees average five diferent sex partners, raising the risk of STIs, drug dependency and crippling comedowns on the back of 72-hour stints without sleep or food. Driven by a lack of information about how women feel about chemsex, McCall is about to review the case notes of 48,000 patients she saw in her London clinic last year to create the first ever picture of UK female chemsex use. Basic demographics and drug history will go into a big, GLAMOUR
anonymous database: “We can then ask the database questions like: ‘How many women attending the clinic in 2015, aged 25-30, said yes to chemsex?’” she explains. McCall hopes to present her findings as a quantitative study before the end of the year. What we know, currently, is that women are most likely to use party drugs: cannabis, cocaine or MDMA. What that means for your sex? On cannabis, it’s more relaxed – the drug targets receptors in your brain’s amygdala that are linked to anxiety. On cocaine, it’s more exhilarating – it blocks serotonin and dopamine reabsorption to cause a heady chemical build-up we feel as a high. On MDMA, it’s more deeply bonding – the sensation mimicking a kind of post-orgasmic sensuality, even towards strangers. But the chemsex derived from gay practice is using a new crop of substances – mephedrone (meow meow), GHB-GBL (G) and methamphetamine. “Mephedrone [an of-white powder usually snorted like cocaine] is similar to ecstasy and causes euphoria,” describes McCall. Like cocaine, meth [in tablet, powder or smokeable crystals – crystal meth] is a stimulant that makes you feel ‘up’ and energised, with much-lowered inhibitions. “G [an oily liquid taken in a dose of a teaspoon or capful], on the other hand, is a sedative and can reduce pain, making it easier to enjoy anal sex.” The latter explains GHB’s popularity among men who have sex with men, but the drug’s use isn’t isolated to gay men. A small study in the Journal Of Psychoactive Drugs found gay men’s and bisexual women’s sexual experiences of GHB to be indistinguishable from heterosexual ones. “I take GHB on one-night stands to do things I wouldn’t normally, like anal sex or a threesome – things I want to try anyway, but wouldn’t have the courage to do without drugs,” admits occasional user Sarah, 30. “It’s like the way other people use alcohol to remove their inhibitions, but G also makes the physical side better. It loosens everything, so anal is easier.” Sociologist Dr Chauntelle Tibbals, author of Exposure: A Sociologist Explores Sex, Society, And Adult Entertainment, isn’t surprised that women in
2016 might use drugs to have a good sex life. “The idea that drugs may somehow enhance an experience – sex included – is not a new one,” she confirms. The chemsex demographic, however – 25 to 40 years old and professional (lawyers, teachers, doctors, people with significant responsibilities), according to those in McCall’s clinic who’ve admitted to chemsex practices – does surprise her. “It may be that chemsex is an artefact of people growing past ideas about what sex ‘should’ be like, in lieu of sexual exploration. The idea that women in their thirties and forties may be participating in chemsex definitely shows a move away from
I take GHB on one-night stands to do things I wouldn’t normally, like anal sex or a THREESOME antiquated ideas about what women’s sexualities should be – and that is new.” Dig into heterosexual drug forums and you find cases of female-instigated chemsex-ploration that shake of notions of women being the passive sexual partner. “Hours of fucking in every position and in diferent rooms of the house: on beds, tables, floors, in the shower, against the wall,” enthuses one female user of her experience. Another unapologetically declares, “I get very horny – not to the point where I want to sleep with random guys – but me and my ex would have sex all night and day so the next day our legs, knees and hands would be burnt from the floor.” Another owns her sexuality: “Every time I smoke or snort [meth], I want to masturbate,” she confesses. But making adventurous behaviour easier can both liberate and scare. “G was often used as a date-rape drug, which gives you an idea of how this drug might afect your ability to consent to sex, and your ability to say no,” warns McCall. A recurring trend among the 21 women in the GHB study was an inability to remember precisely what had occurred during their GHB sex, which led them to avoid sex on the drug in the future. Alice, 34, was shocked to find her sexual orientation skewed entirely after smoking meth for the first (and only) time after a dinner party in the US. “When I’m not on drugs, GLAMOUR
behaviour isn’t something we see on heterosexual apps I am completely heterosexual.

IF WRESTLEMANIA MAKES YOU THINK MORE WTF? THAN WWE, YOU COULD BE MISSING A TRICK, SAYS NOVELIST AND SUPERFAN LINDSEY KELK. HERE’S WHAT SHE WANTS YOU TO KNOW ILLUSTRATIONS by PHILLIP MARSDEN
hat’s the first thing that pops into your mind when I say the words ‘pro wrestling’? Spandex? Hulk Hogan? Oily leather-skinned men strutting around while bikini models pull each other’s weaves out? Well, the good news is: whatever you think wrestling is, the truth is probably something very diferent – and I’m about to make it your new obsession.
IT’S NOT A HOBBY, IT’S AN ADDICTION As an author, I work from home, which gives me endless hours of background TV time – time that could clearly be spent bingeing on Netflix shows or Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Unfortunately for Kimmy Schmidt and Kimmy K, there is only one thing on my TV: professional wrestling. It’s probably fair to say I don’t fit your idea of a wrestling fan. I’m a girl, for starters. I write romantic comedy novels for a living; my strobing is never not perfect; and why, yes, I did just get my nails done, thanks for noticing. But I am as big a fan as you’re ever likely to find. I collect wrestling memorabilia; I listen to wrestling podcasts; and I made my boyfriend dress up as The World’s Cutest Tag Team for Halloween. Such is my commitment to sports entertainment, I once went on an OK Cupid date with a guy just because he listed seminal wrestling documentary Beyond 66
The Mat as one of his favourite films. It didn’t work out, but we did spend a lovely evening watching the Royal Rumble together. And yes, lots of my friends think I’m certifiable. But is watching several hours a week (*cough* day) of elbow drops, sunset flips and figure-fours any more crazy than committing to your average Real Housewives marathon? Actually, don’t answer that yet…
THE ROAD TO WRESTLEMANIA “Y’all here for the wrestle thing?” my Uber driver asked, as I threw my suitcase full of Kevin Owens shirts, custom-printed WrestleMania leggings and a New Day light-up unicorn horn into his car on Thursday afternoon. “Y’all are crazy. Real polite, but totally crazy.” It was hard to argue. Downtown Dallas had been colonised by 100,000 people chanting “Yes! Yes! Yes!” in honour of the recently retired Daniel Bryan, wearing T-shirts declaring themselves a ‘Hugger’ and, every so often, bursting into song, announcing to everyone in earshot that 15-time champion John Cena [now also a film star] – beloved of children and loathed by adult
wrestling fans – ‘Sucks’ (he does, BTW – the man only has five moves). To help you understand how important the annual WrestleMania is to wrestling fans, I have formulated a very exciting analogy using kittens. Bear with me. Imagine you love kittens. Now, imagine people making fun of you for loving kittens so often that you hardly ever talk to anyone else about how much you love kittens, because who wants to be made fun of for something they love? Next, I want you to imagine an entire weekend where you could hang out with thousands of other people who love kittens. You can talk about kittens all day and no one will get bored. In fact, they’re desperate to talk about kittens. You can go to kitten shows, kitten conventions and get your photograph taken with your favourite kittens. Everyone in town is so high on their love for kittens, just being in the city itself is a joyful experience. Now, replace the word ‘kitten’ with the word ‘wrestling’, and hopefully you have an idea of what WrestleMania means to the average wrestling fan. And yes, once again, I’m totally talking about myself. But it’s not just me. Pro wrestling has many famous friends. Comedian Jon Stewart hosted last year’s SummerSlam, and Arrow actor Stephen Amell even stepped into the
ring with Stardust. And I have seen Stephen Merchant, Joe Manganiello and Sofía Vergara with my own eyes at shows. Wrestling is oficially happening, people. I mean, what other event could unite that group of celebrities?
MEETING BRIE Anyway, back in Dallas, the morning before WrestleMania, unable to sleep and clearly annoying my boyfriend by constantly asking him which match he was most excited to see, I left our hotel and went to meet my friend, Keri, also in town for Mania. Keri is the founder of Goldsheep clothing, and designs ring gear for some of the female wrestlers. Like lots of my friends, she didn’t start out as a wrestling fan, but was seduced by the gateway drug that is Total Divas, the E! reality show that follows the lives of the women wrestlers outside of the ring. Basically, Total Divas is KUWTK with added choke slams – and seriously, what’s not to love about that? Everything was going so well until I unexpectedly found myself face to face with an of-duty Brie Bella (right), former Divas champion. I was utterly starstruck. Even more so than that time I accidentally followed/ stalked Jared Leto around Coachella. There she was, one of my favourite WWE superstars, brandishing a glass of red wine, well on her way to getting into Brie Mode (Total Divas code for ever-so-slightly tipsy). There was an awkward introduction, and an even more awkward chat about American football, but soon we found ourselves taking a selfie (above right) and sharing gossip about the male wrestlers. Brie Bella is one of the nicest people I have ever met. Whoever said that about a single Real Housewife of Anywhere? Exactly. #LifeGoals.
WOMEN’S WRESTLING IS COOL NOW For years, I used to fast-forward through the ‘divas’ matches on WWE shows, pretending the bra-and-panties matches didn’t exist. No, really: ‘bra-and-panties matches’ were A Thing, GLAMOUR
the winner being the first to strip her opponent to her underwear. But at last those days are over; we are in the midst of a kickass women’s wrestling renaissance. Fighting through thousands of people in 100° heat to find my seat in the AT&T Stadium was not my idea of a good time, but seeing the Divas title retired and replaced with the new Women’s Championship was such an incredible moment, I may have done a little cry. The man next to me may or may not have handed me a tissue. Wrestling fans care about each other, you guys.
YOU DO KNOW IT’S FAKE, RIGHT? OK, here’s the thing. Ask any wrestling fan this question and they will all give you the same response: it’s not fake, it’s scripted. WWE is a soap opera. It has a colourful cast, all entangled in diferent storylines – good guys, bad
guys, heroes, villains, just like the TV shows you love. Regardless of the predetermined outcome of matches, there are still upwards of a dozen women and 50 men all fighting for their spot. There’s only so much time on TV to showcase so many people, and just a very select few will achieve long-term success. To get the ‘push’ from WWE owner Vince McMahon and win the championship, you’ve still got to be good. And even if you make it, you’re only one injury away from early retirement, with nothing to show for it but a life dedicated to a sport you can no longer take part in. Daniel Bryan, Edge and Steve Austin are just three successful superstars who had their careers ended early because injuries put their bodies and lives at risk in the ring. And even knowing that the storylines are scripted, I still couldn’t look when Shane McMahon jumped 30ft 68
Bayley (below), a former Women’s Champion and in-ring veteran at just 26, tells us about life as a wrestler in WWE’s developmental division, NXT. “Things have changed for women in wrestling. It’s similar to men’s wrestling now, and when you see someone like Sasha Banks in the ring, people can’t believe it – she’s so little, and she acts as though she’s 7ft tall and 300lb. I don’t want people to see it as a ‘women’s match’, just a match they’d be into. On a show day, I go to the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida, and train, either weights or two hours in the ring. After that, we have an hour’s break to go home and get ready, then we go to the location and set up the ring, the chairs, the curtains, everything, with the boys. We have our match, then we tear down the ring, put it all in the truck and go home. We maybe drive three hours to and from the show. Then we get up and do it all again the next day. We do everything the guys do, it’s a very tiring schedule. WWE wrestlers can spend up to 330 days a year on the road.”
of the top of a steel cage and crashed into the announce table. The man has children. Predetermined doesn’t mean fake. It takes a lot more skill to not punch someone in the face than it does to just punch someone in the face, let alone jump of a 30ft steel cage without killing yourself. Seriously, I still can’t think about it.
DO YOU THINK YOU’LL WANT TO COME AGAIN NEXT YEAR? Getting out of the stadium was thankfully much easier than getting in. The crowd was buzzing, high of six hours of death-defying stunts, unifying chants and, not least, The Rock tearing away his jogging bottoms as though he was auditioning for Magic Mike 3. Which he might have been, you don’t know. We were one, a hive mind programmed to cheer, to boo and to repeatedly remind John Cena that he sucks, and it felt amazing. Forcing my love of wrestling onto my boyfriend is one of my proudest achievements, and after four days of non-stop wrestling action, by the time the fireworks exploded around the AT&T Stadium deep in the heart of Texas, I knew he was sold. “Do you think you’ll want to come again next year?” he asked, as I boarded the bus back to our hotel, glassy eyed, utterly exhausted and beyond ecstatic. Talk about a silly question. O

Becky (right), 29, from Dublin, is the first Irish-born WWE Women’s Superstar. Here is why she could never give it up. “I was always a wrestling fan, but there were no Irish wrestlers so, for me, it was beyond a dream. Until I found a wrestling school an hour away when I was 15, that is. At one point, I gave it up for seven years, but not for one day did I not hear this voice in my head telling me this was what I was meant to do. I chose other jobs to distract me from the void wrestling had left. I enjoyed the performance, so I became an actress. I enjoyed the physicality, so I became a stuntwoman. I liked travelling, so worked as a flight attendant. I enjoyed the jobs, but none clicked. Now I’m at the WWE, there is real camaraderie. There’s competition, but it’s healthy. Training and diet on the road are dificult. At home, I’d train eight hours a day. On the road, I can only get 90 minutes in, so I keep it as intense as possible. Wrestling has a huge impact on family and relationships. I moved away at 18 to pursue wrestling, and I can sometimes feel alone, but the sacrifice is worth it. I’ve missed weddings, and friends are having babies, but I try hard to keep in touch. When I look back on life, I don’t know if I’d remember a wedding, but I know I’ll remember this.”

best friend NEXT TIME YOUR INNER CRITIC STARTS BASHING YOU, REMEMBER THAT YOU WOULDN’T TALK TO YOUR FRIENDS LIKE THAT. IN FACT, IF YOU JUST LISTENED TO WHAT YOUR FRIENDS LOVE ABOUT YOU, IT WOULD BE LIKE HAVING YOUR OWN PERSONAL CHEER SQUAD. BEST FRIENDS RUTH CURRY AND EMILY GOULD GIVE IT A GO
riticism hurts. A bad job evaluation, a dismissive comment on a meal you spent hours preparing – it can all make you feel worthless and low. But sometimes the cruellest remarks come from inside. We all experience negative self-talk, that inner voice berating us about our bodies, about the mistakes we make at work, about our relationships, about how we
could have handled this problem or that situation better. For some of us, this inner monologue is deafening, and harsher than anything you would ever say aloud to another person, especially your best friend. I’ve known my best friend, Emily, for over ten years. Together, we’ve survived awful dates, getting fired, marriage (hers, ongoing), mental illness (mine, in remission), childbirth (her again), and becoming writers (both of us). We’ve dropped out of university together and we’ve worked together. We’ve been roommates and we’ve been neighbours. I know Emily would never tolerate anyone talking trash about me, and I would never talk to her the way I sometimes talk to myself. I wondered what she would say if she happened to overhear my inner Ruth talking. So I wrote a letter to myself (complete with self-criticism) and asked Emily to annotate it with how she sees me. The results were inspirational. GLAMOUR
(1) Sorry to be gross, but I think your belly is cute.
(3) Better to date 0 people than a ton of jerks.
(5) Please don’t move somewhere cheaper; I would miss you too much. Also, you’d hate it there.
Yeah, you in the mirror, with the undereye bags and the beer belly (1), even though you don’t drink beer. What’s going on? Wait, let me guess. Nothing. Absolutely nothing. You’ve had the same dead-end job for almost five years (2) and you haven’t been on a date since last summer (3). Well, let’s pretend, anyway. How’s work? You just had your performance review? It went great! Congratulations! So, you’ll be getting a raise, then. Oops, no, sorry, that’s right, because when people say there’s ‘no money’, you believe them, so as a consequence you also, always, have ‘no money’. Maybe if you worked harder, took on more responsibility… but you don’t want to work harder, do you? Because you’re already working hard at your three other jobs that also aren’t paying you anything (4). This is a brilliant financial set-up you’ve got going for yourself. Maybe you should move somewhere cheaper (5). Then at least you could afford to live without roommates. You are over 30; roommates are not a cute look for you any more. Does anyone else you know have roommates? No, they don’t (6); they have good jobs, or boyfriends or girlfriends or husbands and children. Speaking of boyfriends or girlfriends or husbands and children: when are you going to figure that shit out already? Are you asexual? Bi? Straight? ‘Queer’? We get it, we get it, you’re ‘fine alone’ or whatever, but do you really believe that? Because sometimes it seems like you don’t. Sometimes, you seem pretty needy and lonely. And up here in the control room, we think this ‘happy alone’ thing is a lie you’ve convinced yourself is true to justify the choices you’ve already
(4) You DO work hard enough already. This is crazy talk. I don’t know anyone who works more than you, and that includes the guy at the counter of the 24-hour convenience store who I see there literally 24 hours a day. You write, edit, run a publishing company, and work 40 hours a week in an ofice. That is enough. And you don’t know how wealthy other people are vs how much credit-card debt or other issues they have. You are comparing your insides to other people’s outsides.
(6) Well, your roommates do.
(2) Of course, during those five years you have used the stability of your reliable job as a springboard to substantially change your life. You’ve built a reputation as a writer and editor and had the freedom to pursue projects that, while not lucrative, have meant a lot to you and to many other people who care about writing by women, trans and queer people. True, it might be time to move on, but you haven’t been sitting in a cube doing nothing for five years. Far from it.

(8) This is some retrogressive bullshit. I don’t think “men” monolithically hate anything. Some of them probably even prefer short hair. And your hair has never looked better.

made, or don’t want to make, so you can absolve yourself from trying at all, and no one will ever hurt you again. You should definitely spend thousands in therapy on this; you’re making such progress (7). Or maybe you should just grow out your hair, already. Everyone, even you, knows men (who, let’s face it, are your target audience, because you’re too scared to go against any perceived norms at this stage in life) hate short hair (8), and you need as much help as you can get, after all you’re 35 (Ha! It’s fun to say over and over! 35, 35, 35!) and short and dumpy and have crow’s feet (9) and are basically in the ‘get them half price before they’re gone forever’ bin of weird leftovers and flavours (‘smart lite’, ‘funny, but dark’) that didn’t catch on at the supermarket (10). So, OK, you won’t be going out tonight, but maybe you’ll read a nice book instead. Or cook. Or watch a movie. Those are your favourite things to do, right? Your ‘hobbies’ (11)? What is the last movie you saw? Oh, right, you fell asleep in front of The Big Lebowski for the 100th time a few nights ago. The last thing you ‘cooked’ was heating up hot fudge sauce in the microwave (12). Are you reading anything good? That looks long. Let’s see what’s on TV. Reruns of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Perfect (13). Love (14),
(9) Please, laugh lines. Also, this should go without saying, but you are an attractive woman. Your ass is to die for. This is so patently ridiculous.
(11) You read more than anyone I have ever met. It’s insane. You probably finished three books this week. Don’t lie.
RUTH aka YOU (13) This is a very good show. (14) Hmm, I’m not feeling the self-love here, RC. You are a special flavour – not everyone’s cup of tea. But you are not in the reject bin. You are up on a high shelf, obscured from view. But connoisseurs who know where to find you are luckier than they know. I hope this reminder will help you to look in the mirror and say, “F anyone who doesn’t appreciate me, I’m talented and smart and pretty and special and loved” next time. If that’s too tall of an order, just remind yourself of what I said about your hair.
(10) This is a very clever image. But it’s not true. Lots of people don’t find their partner ’til they’re over 35. In fact, where we live, in Brooklyn, it’s considered weird to partner up earlier. People who do usually get divorced. You could think of it as skipping the starter marriage and doing what you wanted instead.

he buck stops with you when you’re a director. You’re responsible for the whole shebang and you have to be conﬁdent it will make money. It’s not for the faint-hearted.” Elizabeth Banks is serious about the business of ﬁlm-making. An Emmynominated actress and a TV and ﬁlm producer, she made her feature-length directorial debut on the Pitch Perfect sequel, a musical comedy about an all-female acapella group that takes female friendship and smart satire and wraps it up in a big pop-culture bow. Having produced and starred in the ﬁrst ﬁlm, alongside Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson, Elizabeth made Pitch Perfect 2 a massive box-office success. The biggest opening for a comedy-musical movie ever, in the UK the ﬁlm took £5m in its ﬁrst weekend (ﬁve times the original ﬁlm’s equivalent take). It has made over £200m worldwide to date, making it the second-highestgrossing live-action ﬁlm directed by a woman (Twilight tops the list). “I really like producing, and I had an ambition to direct a feature ﬁlm,” says Elizabeth. “I had developed both Pitch Perfect movies in production, so no one knew them more than I did. When the directing job opened up, the studio immediately said, ‘Would you wanna do it?’ And boom.” With a third Pitch Perfect ﬁlm in the works, why does the director think this gang of all-singing, all-dancing women has become so popular? “People love an underdog – and the Barden Bellas are natural underdogs: they sing acapella. I think of the ﬁlms like sports movies; these women are part of a team, they have to practise and work together to accomplish their goal. That’s something men, as well as women, are drawn to.” As an actress, Elizabeth has a knack for making roles her own, from the marvellous Effie Trinket in the Hunger Games franchise, to TV reporter Avery Jessup in Tina Fey’s 30 Rock (which garnered Elizabeth her two Emmy nominations). But adding ‘director’ to her CV has been
a welcome challenge, and being able to create decent roles for women – on and off screen – is part of her love of directing and producing movies. “Giving someone a job is really empowering. It’s a great feeling, like I’m providing opportunities for other people.” Of course, being a female director means she’s expected to weigh in on the issue of sexism in Hollywood, but it’s not a conversation she’s bored of having. “Until very recently, these things seemed anecdotal. Now, we’ve actually studied it: 78% of protagonists in movies are men, only 34% of speaking roles go to women – and of that, a minuscule number go to women over 40,” she says, the ﬁgures clearly seared into her mind. “Up until two or three years ago, I’d never been directed by a woman. Now, I’ve worked with a couple, but only on very small ﬁlms. They’re not transitioning to studio level.” So, what’s the solution? “At the end of the day, we just need to get on with it – but we need the support of the industry, we need men to share their power and money.” Of the other women getting out there and getting on with it, she admires Marielle Heller, who wrote and directed The Diary Of A Teenage Girl, Transparent’s exec-producer Jill Soloway, and Kathleen Kennedy, Steven Spielberg’s long-time producer. “Kathleen worked with me on one of the very ﬁrst ﬁlms I did – now, she basically runs the entire Star Wars franchise.” Elizabeth is on a mission to learn from this growing community of female ﬁlm-makers. “Nancy Meyers will go to lunch with me. I made Michelle MacLaren [a Breaking Bad producer and director] go to lunch with me. I want to hear their experiences, I want to create a camaraderie – because I know the men have it.” While she’d certainly like more female colleagues, she doesn’t subscribe to the idea that women must make ﬁlms about ‘women’s issues’. Instead, she wants to make ﬁlms that are funny. “I love character-based comedies. It’s important to have a view on the world

that’s a little sassy. I don’t think we should be taking anything too seriously.” As well as Pitch Perfect 3, Elizabeth is directing and producing the Charlie’s Angels reboot. “The first Charlie’s Angels movie was made in 2000. The world has changed and roles for women have really expanded,” she says. “It feels like the right time for an update on what the Angels organisation would be like today.” Having come to acting comparatively late herself, in her mid-twenties, Elizabeth initially struggled to find roles. “I screen-tested for the role of Mary Jane Watson in the first Spider-Man movie, opposite Tobey Maguire. Tobey and I are basically the same age – and I was told I was too old to play her. I was like, ‘Oh, OK, that’s what I’ve signed up for,’” she says, laughing. Seventeen years later, she’s the one giving actresses their big break. “What I’m grateful for now is longevity. I was never a flavour of the month. I feel very comfortable that I will be working in this industry for a while.”

THE AUTHORITY Designer, influencer and business mogul, Donatella Versace is fashion’s most fabulous force ‘Strength’ and ‘empowerment’ are two of Donatella’s favourite words. In fact, they crop up seven times during the course of our interview – proof that Donatella is a fashion mogul who wants to make the women who wear her über-glamorous, sexually charged clothes feel the same. “Fashion has such power to send a positive message to women around the world,” she says. “Versace has always been about helping women to feel strong and proud of themselves. Today, women have come so far, but there is still a long way to go, and fashion plays an important role in that because it speaks to billions of women around the world.” Donatella has not had the easiest of rides, but that’s part of what makes her an inspiration. Having dealt with drug addiction and the loss of her brother Gianni, who was murdered in 1997, she has worked hard at turning Versace into the mega brand it is today. Another of Donatella’s skills is her ability to spot and nurture rising talent. She’s far from daunted by the future of the industry – she’s fascinated by it. “Right now in fashion, the future is all anyone can talk about,” she says. “The internet and social media have changed everything. People find it terrifying. They want everything in fashion to stay the same, as if smartphones had never been invented. I am the opposite. I cannot remember a time when fashion has been as exciting as it is today.” PREVIOUS WINNERS INCLUDE Mary Katrantzou (2015); Simone Rocha (2014); Stella McCartney (2004)

THE HIT SQUAD No1 singles, Top 10 albums, THAT Brits performance… Little Mix are owning pop right now. b y S C A R L E T T R U S S E L L The undisputed pop anthem of last summer was Little Mix’s Black Magic. Straight in at number one, where it stayed for three weeks before going platinum, the single marked a new chapter for Jade Thirlwall, Perrie Edwards, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jesy Nelson, who’ve come a long way since winning The X Factor in 2011. Get Weird, their third and most successful album to date, followed, reaching number two in the charts. Then came another Top 10 hit with Secret Love Song (a collaboration with Jason Derulo) and a career-defining performance at this year’s Brit Awards (four million YouTube views and counting), certifying Little Mix as one of the world’s leading girl groups. And, of course, the unparalleled winners of GLAMOUR’s reader-voted Music Act award. “I can’t remember my life without Little Mix,” says Jesy, as the group giggle throughout our shoot. They all agree that being nominated for two Brit Awards and performing Black Magic at the ceremony are particular highlights of the past year. “I think we 92 GLAMOUR
changed a few perceptions that night of what Little Mix is about,” says Leigh-Anne. “We put more into that performance than any we’ve ever done,” says Jade. “We wanted to prove why we deserved to be there.

TRAILBLAZER: SHARON HORGAN
THE REALIST No topic is of limits for Sharon Horgan – and we love it “My take on the world is quite dark,” Sharon Horgan admits. If you’ve seen her work, you’ll know what she means – whether it’s the chaos and loneliness of being single in her breakthrough, Bafta-nominated sitcom, Pulling, or the painfully honest picture of marriage and parenthood in her latest show, Catastrophe (both of which she co-wrote). These shows are dark, yes – but also real and insightful and very, very funny. “A good comedy doesn’t stick to any rules. You have to find your own thing and be true to that,” she says. “It’s a scary thing to do, because it could all go tits up.” It’s an approach that’s won her two British Comedy Awards, a Bafta Television Craft Award, and A-list fans including Reese Witherspoon (who raved about her on Instagram) and Sarah Jessica Parker. In fact, Sharon wrote the upcoming HBO show Divorce specifically for SJP, in what will be her first lead TV role since Sex And The City. “The show is about a marriage crumbling. There’s lots of drama amongst the comedy,” Sharon explains. “Sarah’s not afraid to go anywhere with the role – she’s passionate; she’s not someone who turns up on set, does her thing and fucks off.” And now Sharon’s back from working on Divorce in New York, Season Three of Catastrophe is waiting to be made with her co-star and co-writer, Rob Delaney. The first two series were raved about in the UK and the US; it’s no small feat writing a comedy that translates to a US sense of humour. So does she feel they’ve hit their stride? “It’s always terrifying. You can’t copy what you did before – you have to find the most creative way to move forward. It’s about coming with fresh eyes and a fresh story. Fingers crossed.” PREVIOUS WINNERS INCLUDE Amy Schumer (2015); Kristen Wiig (2014)

If there’s one show of the past year that’s prompted us to cancel all social plans and binge-watch Netflix, it’s Jessica Jones. Based on the Marvel comicbook character of the same name, and costarring David Tennant as a psychopathic villain, the US show is about a superheroturned-private investigator gifted with super-strength and the ability to jump up buildings in her trademark ripped jeans, biker boots and leather jacket. It’s had us – and 190 other countries – hooked, becoming Netflix’s most-watched new show, beating the record previously set by Orange Is The New Black. “I couldn’t wait to tell my girlfriends I’d won a GLAMOUR Award. It’s so awesome,” Krysten enthuses, in distinctly un-Jessica Jones style. “Oh, she’s way darker and more damaged than I am,” she laughs. “But we’re both a little leftof-centre. I’m certainly no wallflower…” The 34-year-old actress made her name playing the kooky best friend in a string of Hollywood films opposite everyone from Cameron Diaz to Kate Bosworth, but it’s her TV work on Breaking Bad and Don’t Trust The B---- In Apartment 23 where Krysten really shone before Jessica Jones came knocking. We love that the series is breaking ground with a powerful female lead in a genre traditionally dominated by
men – and with its distinctly noir-ish tone and themes (sexuality, rape and post-traumatic stress disorder). Krysten also did many of the superhero stunts herself, FYI. “I don’t look like a conventional leading lady,” she says. “The lead role would always go to someone else – no one knew what to do with me. But now I embrace the fact I play women who are a little different. And Jessica is so sassy, I love her. The show being so well received changed my life and was a reminder that hard work pays off. It’s been a wild ride. It’s definitely different when I leave the house now!” PREVIOUS WINNERS INCLUDE Kerry Washington (2015); Emily VanCamp (2014); Zosia Mamet (2013); Lea Michele (2012, 2010) GLAMOUR

It’s strange to think that the quiet, articulate woman sitting next to me on a sofa in Dalston is stratospherically famous. The real diva in the room is her 10-month-old dachshund, Martha, who runs around barking orders for cuddles. Tanya Burr, our December 2015 cover star and winner of GLAMOUR’s inaugural Manuka Doctor YouTuber of the Year award, has tapped into an area that many still don’t “get”. “It’s really exciting that this category has been recognised,” she says. “That’s huge. I’ve been doing YouTube for six years, so I’ve really seen how traditional media used to think, ‘Who are you? You just make videos in your bedroom.’” With a make-up range, and more than eight million subscribers across her channels, Tanya embodies a very modern type of star, but one who wears her fame comfortably. “Friends I don’t see that much find it really weird,” she says. “They’re like, ‘Do you not find
it strange that people follow you around the street?’ I live it every single day, so it’s normal. But when they mention it, that kind of reminds me that this isn’t normal.” It’s not every YouTuber who gets asked to work with the UN, but Tanya’s work on the Global Goals project, to end poverty and hunger, led to her creating the Time For Girls campaign. “Everything was coming back to girls. Like, everything. If every Ethiopian girl finished school, then it would add four billion dollars to the country’s economy. Obviously there is so much more to gender equality than just girls, but if we focus on girls right now, there’s a real opportunity to make a change.” And that applies to her legion of followers. “They’re really powerful young beings and they can make stuff happen. I think we’re the generation who can make a real change.” Amen to that.

fter six years starring in the worldwide fantasy phenomenon that is Game Of Thrones, Sophie Turner feels she’s grown up with her character, Sansa Stark, who has matured into a force to be reckoned with. “She was vulnerable and naïve in the beginning – a bit like me – but the hardships she’s gone through have made her a stronger person,” says Sophie. “She still comes out fighting. I admire her for that. I love playing badass women.” So what’s it really like to work on TV’s most-talkedabout show? “So much fun. Alfie Allen and I play truth or dare. He got me to stand next to the director and say, ‘I’d kill for more screen time.’” And what’s an average Game Of Thrones night out? “It normally consists of going to a bar and getting pretty trashed,” she laughs. “Me, Maisie [Williams] and Alfie are first on the dancefloor.” Despite the backstage laughs, on-screen, Sansa has really suffered. Over the six seasons, she’s seen family
murdered, experienced several acts of sexual violence and been married off to vile kings. Her storylines are some of the darkest and most controversial in the show – and it’s testament to her skill as an actress that she can handle them so adeptly. “I find it easy to distance myself,” she says. “Between takes, the cast always bring the good energy back.” Her recent blockbuster role as a young Jean Grey in X-Men: Apocalypse threw her in at the Hollywood deep end, with co-stars including Michael Fassbender, Hugh Jackman and Jennifer Lawrence. “They were already an established cast, but they became my best friends. Jennifer was so cool. She gave me advice – nothing to do with acting, stuff like how to de-bloat yourself.” A GLAMOUR award and life tips from J-Law? That’s a pretty good year Sophie’s having.

30 years of comedy gold and a legion of A-list fans? Damn right, Jennifer Saunders is Fabulous. b y H A N N A W O O D S I D E Jennifer Saunders likes to laugh – a lot. In the four hours I spend in her company, she barely stops, whether it’s getting to grips with the six-inch Manolos, playing with her whippet, Olive, or jamming air guitar to the Rolling Stones. “I always think, ‘Thank God I have a career that requires me to be laughing all the time,’” she says. She’s very good at making other people laugh, too (the International Emmy, Bafta fellowship and Writers’ Guild Award are testament to that). In the last 30 years, she has given us surreal satire in The Comic Strip Presents...; seven seasons of spot-on popculture-spoofing sketches in French And Saunders, a ratings-hit sitcom (starring women over 40) with Jam And Jerusalem – and, of course, the joy of Edina Monsoon and Patsy Stone in Absolutely Fabulous. Twenty-four years after the delightfully debauched duo first (dis)graced our screens, Absolutely Fabulous: The Movie is out this summer. The reason for the enduring love for them is simple, she says: “People love watching people behaving badly. Eddy and Patsy break the rules, but somehow get away with it – they say the things you’re not supposed to say.” In a career that encompasses performances on over 30 TV shows, 13 films and a guest appearance on

Friends, Jennifer credits her two great collaborators, Dawn French and Joanna Lumley, with making it all so enjoyable: “I hate working without a comedy partner. You need someone to have fun with, to play off, otherwise it’s sort of boring. Making a show should be fun.” While Jennifer is a comedy icon, and many young female performers (Amy Schumer, Lena Dunham) cite her as inspiration, she insists, “I’m not a role model, because role models show you how to behave. I think it’s about saying, ‘You can do this – off you go.’ Victoria Wood did that for me.” As for what’s next, “Do you know how long making a movie goes on for? I need a night out with friends, drinking Champagne. God, I love Champagne.” PREVIOUS WINNERS INCLUDE Nicole Kidman (2014); Stevie Nicks (2011); Helen Mirren (2007)

he past two years have been studded with ‘pinch me, this can’t be happening’ moments for Jess Glynne: winning a Grammy Award with Clean Bandit for the anthem that is Rather Be, her first solo number-one single with Hold My Hand (“a magic moment”), three nominations at this year’s Brit Awards, and a number-one debut album – I Cry When I Laugh – that didn’t leave the UK Top Ten for nine months. “It’s all very exciting for me – and absolutely surreal, given there is so much great music around,” says the London-born singer. Husky and soul-soaked, Jess has the kind of powerhouse voice that you

instantly recognise. And her rise to charttopping status has been nothing short of meteoric. Signed to Atlantic Records in 2013, she already has five number-one singles under her belt (as a featured and solo artist), as well as a double-platinum album. She’s also a prolific song-writer, crafting all her own material and collaborating with Iggy Azalea, Rita Ora, Rudimental and Tinie Tempah. “I keep little notes on my phone with ideas, which we develop when in the studio,” she says. “I enjoy that whole creative process.” There’s still one person who she’s aching to work with: “Beyoncé would be a dream. I admire how hard-working she is – she always produces projects that blow me away.” This summer, Jess will be hitting the festival circuit, including a spot on the Glastonbury line-up, before embarking on a worldwide tour. She’s particularly pleased to be in front of a live audience again, following vocal surgery last year. “I’m so excited – I love performing live. I missed out last summer, so now I’m making up for lost time.” But before she hits the road, Jess is allowing herself to revel in her NEXT Breakthrough award and looking forward to letting her (pretty impressive) hair down at the after-party. “I’m thrilled and very flattered,” she says of her win. “Thank you to everyone who voted for me. It’s so great to know that what you do touches people and means something to them.” PREVIOUS WINNERS INCLUDE Suki Waterhouse (2015); Ellie Goulding (2011); Katy Perry (2009)

oing from academic non-fiction to writing the best-selling, rollicking erotic-thriller Maestra was a doddle for historian Lisa Hilton. “When you’ve spent 15 years writing about the European Renaissance, imaginary sex and violence has nothing on what they got up to.” The book cover may be suggestive, but any comparisons with EL James and Fifty Shades end there. Lisa’s heroine, the sardonic (and murderous) art-dealer-cum-bar-hostess Judith, is like a wittier Lisbeth Salander, albeit one with less compunction over killing. “In many ways she’s a pretty horrible character – but she’s really smart,” says Lisa. “Her ruthlessness, I hope, is tempered by her ingenuity.” Yes, she’s terrifyingly power hungry, but she’s also funny: Judith is queen of a deliciously dry observation. “She
doesn’t take herself too seriously. I think earnestness is so unattractive in a murderer.” Judith’s enthusiastic appetite for no-stringsattached sex – and the very explicit descriptions of what she gets up to in a glamorous underground world of exclusive sex parties – has raised the usual eyebrows, which Lisa dismisses. “Why should the idea of a woman enjoying her own body, on her own terms, be seen as shocking? Erica Jong was writing about the ‘zipless fuck’ in the ’70s, but we’ve regressed from that idea of sexual freedom to a far more constricted and conflicted perspective.” The first in a trilogy, Maestra was picked up by 38 publishers worldwide, and the Hollywood adaptation is imminent, with the same screenwriter who worked on The Girl On The Train on board. “I’m fascinated to see how the story translates on screen – there’s no description of Judith’s appearance in the book – but, honestly, I’m still in disbelief that it’s actually happening,” says Lisa. “I keep expecting someone to tell me there’s been a mistake.” And now, to top it all of, Lisa has been voted GLAMOUR’s Writer of the Year. “I’m overwhelmed,” she says. “It’s women who drive the book market, so we should celebrate our curiosity and adventurousness, and it’s wonderful to be part of an award that does.” PREVIOUS WINNERS INCLUDE Paula Hawkins (2015); Helen Fielding (2014); Zadie Smith (2006)

The Big Shot Oscar winner. Power producer. Lifestyle mogul. Reese Witherspoon is the business. b y “Starting a new business at the age of 39, not knowing anything about retail, distribution, e-commerce, net sales, I had a huge learning curve...” So confesses Reese Witherspoon, our Entrepreneur of the Year, mastermind behind the one-year-old retail phenomenon Draper James, her lifestyle portal to the style, femininity and grace of her Southern roots in Louisiana and Tennessee. Named after her beloved grandparents, it’s Reese’s hands-on celebration of “authentic Southern style”, with clean, bold, classy designs across floral shifts, perforated tote bags, quirky accessories and traditional lace and pearls. The enticing home page even announces, “Come on in, y’all!” Like Reese, it’s a sparkling combination of charm, fun and positivity; a venture she financially backs herself – “It’s all my own money, all my own time” – and fortuitously timely as the South enjoys a cultural revival, with a host of creative companies relocating there, and the city of Dallas becoming an increasingly powerful player in the fashion industry. “The South is on fire right now,” nods Reese. “I’m a storyteller, and fashion is storytelling, too. This has put me in a new sphere of influence. I’m very motivated to tell stories which haven’t been told.” The infinitely productive Reese Witherspoon was born motivated, a lifelong high achiever whose

childhood nickname was “Little Miss Type A” and whose first production company, Type A Films (created when she was 24), coproduced the sequel to her breakthrough, Legally Blonde. America’s sometime rom-com favourite, she won an Oscar aged 29 (as June Carter Cash in the 2005 biopic Walk The Line) and became the highest-paid actress in Hollywood in 2007. She is now a powerhouse multi-mogul as co-founder of production company Pacific Standard, which has specialised in female-driven storytelling since 2012 – from murder mystery Gone Girl to the Oscar-nominated hiking drama Wild. “I have a busy brain,” she notes. “I need intellectual challenges.” She’s now an acknowledged force for womankind, lending her power (and money) to diverse female-led projects. “It’s been endlessly frustrating to see how women have been cordoned off, to the wife and girlfriend role, and you’re only really viable from the age of 21 to 40,” she says, ruefully. “It’s absurd! It’s just not representative of our lives. So I wanna be a facilitator, not a complainer, you know? Develop things for older women, women scientists, soldiers, women I meet

Indeed, Holly describes her work as “hanging out with a group of people you get on really well with, having a laugh,” – but she’s proud to be following in the footsteps of female presenters such as Cilla Black. “I remember watching her on Blind Date. She was so quick, so sharp and one of the first women who got to host a whole primetime show. She was the trailblazer for us women in telly.” Live TV is a very specific challenge – there’s nowhere to hide when things fall apart – but after seven years on This Morning, Holly has learnt to just go with it. “It’s not so much that things get easier – you just get less scared of the mistakes.” This year, Holly and her co-presenter, Phillip Schofield, brought home This Morning’s 11th National Television Award. And boy, did they celebrate, turning up for the show the next day in their party clothes, looking a little worse for wear. It was one of the most memorable (and funniest) moments on TV this year. “I rang my producer before the show started and said, ‘The good news is, I’m coming in. The bad news is, I’m still out!’” They’d better have a Berocca waiting on set after the GLAMOUR Awards. PREVIOUS WINNERS INCLUDE Rita Ora (2015); Naomi Campbell (2014); Nicole Scherzinger (2013)

“Say yes to everything.” When Emma Freud moved from West London to the West Village in New York, and started writing her weekly column for The Telegraph, this was her motto. “I have to write 700 words every single week, so I’m always looking for something to say yes to.” And the weirdest thing she’s agreed to? “Not wearing any trousers on the subway in January for The No Pants Subway Ride. Seeing five psychics in the space of two days. And there are many things that I’ve eaten that I probably shouldn’t have.” Alongside her Telegraph column, Emma is a delightfully unserious gadgets critic at Tatler magazine, director of Comic Relief ’s Red Nose Day, which launched in the US last year, raising $21m, and a script editor for her long-term partner, director Richard Curtis (she was the ‘kissing consultant’ on Love Actually). “I’ve pissed about in so many different professions, if I’d known writing a column was this enjoyable, I wouldn’t have bothered with all the others.

aomie Harris is drinking the swamp water she has in a ﬂask on her dressing table. If this is what it takes to look, sound and be like GLAMOUR’s Film Actress of the Year, I think we’d all settle for staying as we are. “Turmeric tea,” the 39-year-old actress explains, as a make-up artist removes the last of the aquamarine eyeliner she’s been rocking on our shoot. “I’m obsessed with all my tonics. The tea and ﬂaxseed smoothies are what keep me going. You should try them.” Given the London-born star of Mandela, Skyfall and Spectre (one of the top-grossing movies globally of 2015, with the £605 million box-office haul to prove it) has had more energy than the Duracell Bunny on a sugar high since she arrived this morning, it’s almost tempting to take her up on the offer. But I suspect the reason Naomie is Naomie – a star who not only managed to win over Winnie Mandela with her portrayal of the former South African President’s wife, but seduced even the old 007 guard with her 21st-century take on Moneypenny – has little to do with swamp water and a lot to do with talent, discipline and determination. “Please get Naomie out of the house,” her Jamaican mum – an EastEnders scriptwriterturned-reiki healer – would implore the actress’s childhood best friend. “I want her to have some fun.” But the fun would have to wait. This bespectacled little girl – who was obsessed with The Sound Of Music and grew up in Finsbury Park, north London, without knowing her Trinidadian father – was already, Naomie can now see, “… on a train, desperate to achieve one thing after the next. I was very studious, ambitious and focused,” she tells me. “And I know my mum was quite concerned about that.” Carmen Harris – “an incredibly strong woman who had a huge impact on my life” – wasn’t keen on her daughter studying at Cambridge, either. However, Naomie did a degree in social and political sciences at the university’s Pembroke College, before studying drama at the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. “You won’t ﬁt in,” her mother had insisted; and although Naomie agrees that “it did turn

out to be a massive culture shock for me at the time”, nonetheless she is “still really proud of having been there”. Over the years, journalists have tried to get the actress to put her sense of alienation at Cambridge down to more than the drinking-society Old Etonians who “threw up all over the college grounds and went skiing in the holidays”. But Naomie has always been too intent on forging ahead. As a teenager filming training videos in order to pay for university, she remembers being given a great piece of advice by Dawn French, who had noticed what a talented young actress she was. “You’re going to have to develop a thick skin if you’re going to survive in this industry,” the comedian told her. “Inside, you can still be sensitive, but outwardly, you have to be a lot stronger.” But despite choosing what she describes as “an incredibly hard and incredibly brutal business” – and one allegedly rife with discrimination – the actress has never experienced racism. “I really haven’t,” « insists Naomie, who made her first TV When you’re appearance aged nine. “But I do think Top, skirt and younger you that being a woman on set can feel alienating. shoes all Marni can’t see No one is actively trying to make you feel agendas. that way, but by virtue of the fact that it’s But I know an 80% male environment, it does.

She’s conquered Venus. The British rankings, too. Tennis superstar Johanna Konta is acing it. b y E L L A A L E X A N D E R
Johanna Konta was just nine years old when she decided she wanted to be the number-one tennis player in the world. “I remember my dad saying, ‘Well, if that’s the case, you’ve got to work really hard.’” Judging by her success, that ambition looks set to come true. In the past 12 months, she’s become the British women’s number one, climbed to number 21 in the World Tennis Association rankings (from number 151 last year) and, at the Australian Open, became the ﬁrst British woman since 1983 to reach a Grand Slam singles semiﬁnal. “I was quite proud of that,” she says. “I’ve had some incredible experiences.” At her busiest, Johanna plays for four hours a day, plus two hours’ training in the gym, but the adrenaline of a match day is what she lives for: “I love competing in front of a crowd. I enjoy the performance.” She admits she’s not a natural loser (she’s banned from playing Monopoly with her family): “I get quite stroppy if I lose, but I’ve developed skills with a mind coach to help deal with the highs and lows.” Steffi Graf, winner of 22 Grand Slam singles titles, is Johanna’s idol. “She’s an incredible player, I can only aspire to be like her.” Self-possessed and insanely talented (not to mention the 11 singles titles from the International Tennis Federation world tour to her name), Johanna is more like her hero than she realises.

“This time last year I was presenting an award to Ellie Goulding, now I’m winning a GLAMOUR award. It’s bizarre and amazing and lovely.” Clara Amfo isn’t one to bother playing it ‘cool’ – her excitement at being named our Radio Personality of the Year only just exceeds her joy at meeting Kerry Washington at last year’s after-party: “I was like, Olivia Pope is right in front of me!” Clara joined BBC Radio 1Xtra as the Weekend Breakfast Show host in 2013, before graduating to The Official Chart Show on Radio 1. In 2015, she took over from Fearne Cotton, who had presented the much-loved mid-morning show for six years. “I’d be a liar to say it wasn’t daunting – Fearne’s a badass – but the listeners [of which there are millions] have been really cool. A woman told me that I felt part of the family; there’s an intimacy to radio that I love – and you can turn up to work looking like crap,” she laughs. It’s that no-nonsense honesty, along with her chatting-with-your-mate style of presenting, that has us tuned in every weekday. Then there’s the magic of the Live Lounge. Since Clara’s taken the reins, everyone from Florence + the Machine to Sam Smith and Selena Gomez have performed acoustic sets on the show, but she has her fingers crossed for her dream guest. “Rihanna’s back catalogue is full of bangers – and you know she’d give good chat.” The thing Clara loves most about her job? The tight-knit group of female colleagues at BBC Radio. “Annie Mac’s such a sharp broadcaster, Lauren Laverne is wicked, Jo Whiley and Edith Bowman are both awesome. And Gemma Cairney and Alice Levine are my regular cab buddies,” she says. “I’m a massive fan of all the women in our building.” PREVIOUS WINNERS INCLUDE Fearne Cotton (2015, 2014, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009); Jameela Jamil (2013); Jo Whiley (2008)

COINTREAU THEATRE ACTRESS: GEMMA ARTERTON
The Critics’ Choice As if Gemma Arterton needed any more rave reviews, here’s one from GLAMOUR. b y A L I C E H O W A R T H PHOTOGRAPH by CHRIS CRAYMER
“Nell Gwynn is the part I’ve been waiting for, for such a long time”, says Gemma Arterton of her latest critically acclaimed theatrical role. “It’s quite rare that a woman gets to have a good comedy role on stage, and I love playing someone who is so strong-willed and intelligent but has such a sense of humour, too.” Nell Gwynn, from playwright Jessica Swale, tells the true story of the 17th-century prostitute who caught the eye of the monarchy, bore two sons by King Charles II and became one of the world’s first female actresses. “There are certain things I can relate to: we both came from a working-class background and went into theatre,” she says. “She’s really naughty and plays jokes on people – I’m the same.” Still, there was pressure to do Nell justice: “You know, when you’re portraying a real-life person, you want to do the best you can to
show that person in the right way,” she says. She needn’t have worried – five-star reviews flooded in, along with an Olivier nomination for Best Actress. And it’s not just the critics: Prince Charles came to see the play earlier this year. “I was a bit nervous because there are a few lines in the play that poke fun at the monarchy – but, apparently, the royal family loved it.” The former Bond Girl’s success follows her first Olivier-nominated performance (for Made In Dagenham, adapted from the film about the Ford sewing machinists’ strike in the ’60s), and two classic heavyweight roles – in John Webster’s The Duchess Of Malfi, at Shakespeare’s Globe, and as Hilde in Henrik Ibsen’s The Master Builder, at the Almeida Theatre. Not one for elaborate pre-show rituals – “I just like to get out there and do it” – Gemma has been described by critics as both “luminous” and “magnetic” when she’s on stage. And if you’ve ever seen one of her performances, there’s a ‘can’t take your eyes off her’ quality that commands your attention. “In theatre, the audience is like another character in the scene,” she explains. “It completely informs your performance.” This year, Gemma has five films coming out, but theatre is still a priority for her. “It’s exhausting, but I want to do projects that really excite me,” she says. “I like the immediacy and energy of theatre. It’s my biggest love.” PREVIOUS WINNERS INCLUDE Gillian Anderson (2015); Billie Piper (2014); Helen McCrory (2013)

The Talented Ms Ripley Aliens. Ghosts. The box office. The legendary Sigourney Weaver is slaying them all. by HANNA WOODSIDE
lien, Ghostbusters, Working Girl: Sigourney Weaver has starred in some of the most loved and genredefining films in pop-culture history. In her 40-year career (her first film role was a small part in Annie Hall), the three-time Oscar nominee and two-time Golden Globe winner has simultaneously kept her crown as a sci-fi queen, tackled critically acclaimed drama, turned her hand to irreverent comedy, and appeared in over 30 stage productions. Oh, and last year, appeared in an episode of ITV’s Doc Martin with Martin Clunes: “I’m a big fan of the show – Selina Cadell, who plays Mrs Tishell, is one of my oldest friends from drama school.” What’s the secret to such a prolific career? “I’ve worked hard my whole life to be offered different things. People always want to give you the same role you just played – I want to mix it up,” she says. “What has helped me is that I know how to read a script. I never turned down a role because it wasn’t a lead – if the script is good, it’s going to be a project worth seeing.” Most people know that Sigourney’s breakout role in Alien was originally written for a man, but at the time she says she “didn’t feel like a trailblazer. The thinking was: no one will ever think that this girl will be the survivor. So, it wasn’t

necessarily a feminist statement, it was more, ‘Let’s do something inspiring.’” The films Sigourney has been working on recently – action flick Tomboy, A Revenger’s Tale and fantasy adaptation A Monster Calls – have been relatively low-budget affairs. “I love working with young directors,” she says. “I like how creative people get when they don’t have a lot of money. It’s fly-by-the-seat-of-your-pants acting.” Next up is most definitely a big-budget project: “I’m getting ready to do four more Avatars. Back in the day, you would never want to do a sequel – that would be very déclassé. Now, everyone wants a franchise,” she says. She also thinks the nature of fame has changed since she started out in the business: “It’s a different animal now – there’s less privacy,” she says. “Social media is great, but I’m glad no one’s said to me, ‘This is part of your job.’ But for some young actors, I think it must be.” This summer, Sigourney will be appearing in the all-female Ghostbusters reboot, which she’s confident people will love: “These are some incredibly talented women. It’s very different in certain ways – but it gives the audience the things you look for in a Ghostbusters film. It’s going to be awesome.” PREVIOUS WINNERS INCLUDE Helen Mirren (2014); Dionne Warwick (2012)

James Norton had his very own Poldark moment this year, appearing in nothing but his swimming trunks in Season Two of Grantchester. “There’s a lot more attention on the body beautiful in relation to men now,” he says, laughing. “As long as it’s tongue-incheek and playful, I don’t mind.” (Phew.) Every bit as charming as you’d hope him to be, James says he’s “genuinely touched and very honoured” to be crowned our Man of the Year. “There’s been a lot of teasing from my friends, though – they’ve found it particularly funny.” After period-drama success in Life In Squares and Lady Chatterley’s Lover, James has established himself as one of the most popular and versatile actors on TV, whether playing the dashing Prince Andrei in War And Peace, getting his evil on (and a Bafta nomination) as baddie Tommy Lee Royce in Happy Valley, or taking his kit off as TV’s most handsome vicar in Grantchester. And after rave reviews of his stage work in the blackly comic Bug, surely it’s only a matter of time before he follows in the footsteps of Benedict Cumberbatch and Eddie Redmayne and conquers Hollywood. Is this how he sees his career progressing? “I am looking to do more film work – it’s slightly nerve-wracking as I start to nudge my way into that territory, though,” he says. James calls himself a feminist (“I’m not happy living in a world where the women I know don’t feel as empowered as men”) and waxes lyrical about his female colleagues, from Lily James to Happy Valley writer Sally Wainwright. And he has a long list of women he wants to work with, including Ruth Wilson, Scarlett Johansson and director Kathryn Bigelow. “There’s so much wonderful work in the UK at the moment – and going to the US opens up a whole other world, too,” he says. “It’s an exciting time.” PREVIOUS WINNERS INCLUDE Calvin Harris (2015); Sam Claflin (2014); Daniel Radclife (2013); Tom Hiddleston (2012)

uling airwaves to runways, the reggae movement is upon us. A new generation of artists – including Jamaica’s brightest young star, Chronixx, and US group Major Lazer – has put it back on the map, with the fashion world following suit. Sure, Bob Marley might seem like an unlikely style icon, but fashion loves a style rebel – and his look is one that’s been inspiring streetwear since the ’60s. (Yep, those tracksuits and knit beanies and military jackets... they’re all back for more.) Take Tommy Hilfiger’s spring show: a recreated Caribbean paradise. In attendance? Plenty of green, yellow and red crochet, plus a burgundy tracksuit reminiscent of a style Marley wore in the ’70s. Meanwhile, Gigi Hadid’s catwalk turn was the final piece of reggae-style inspiration that we needed, modelling a crochet halter-neck maxi dress in a colourful patchwork print. Considering following suit? Try a crochet bikini (strictly for posing) and vibrant coloured sandals. Or knit shorts, slouchy jumpers and floaty dresses in bright Rasta shades – perfect for long summer evenings. Your accessories? A hip flask of rum and a pair of shades.

“I had a bad fall and ended up with a large cut along my shin bone. I like to wear skirts and dresses so I was worried about having a scar in such a noticeable place. Just as the wound was healing, I read an article in a magazine in which a celebrity swore by Bio-Oil. I was skeptical, but I thought it was worth a try. I faithfully followed the directions for using Bio-Oil, and my scar is now less noticeable. I feel confident wearing skirts and dresses again, and I have Bio-Oil to thank!” Gwen Streeter

Remember mousse? IT’S BACK – AND NOW IT’S YOUR MOST VERSATILE STYLING TOOL.
“New formulas mean mousse is creamier and less sticky, so they give volume without hair looking or feeling like a perm,” says stylist Syd Hayes. Here’s how to make this power product work for you.
by DOMINIQUE TEMPLE
Apply Like A PRO
“Squirt a golfball-sized amount into your palm, loosely scrunch it into your hair, but not so it all dissolves,” says hairstylist George Northwood.
“Always make sure you get an even, all-over application. This will make styling easier, as the hair is evenly prepped,” says Syd.
“Focus on roots and mid-lengths. Mousse really grips the hair and creates volume, so avoid dry areas (usually the ends),” says hairstylist Aaron Carlo.
“A pro tip for even application is to dip your comb into your mousse before running through your hair,” says hairstylist Adam Reed.

Dream hair starts here Greater volume to ideal lengths, achieving the boost you’ve always wanted has never been easier From breakage to thinning, we all have our hair hang-ups. How we deal? With every product ever created, mostly. But how we deal longer-term? Easy: extensions, as GLAMOUR discovered with Great Lengths, a world leader in premium quality hair enhancements. As someone whose biggest complex has always been her fine, wispy hair, designer Hannah underwent the ultimate
transformation in the quest for a confidence-boosting revamp. And aiding her look were GL’s 100% ethically sourced human hair extensions. Not only do they magic up length, but they add volume and colour, too. And better yet – no damage. The outcome? A voluminous finish and any preconceptions dispelled – and we call that a win-win. Check out how the perfect ’do was mastered...
ini tia l co ns ult at ion Certified Great Lengths expert Alexandra Zdravkova at Michaeljohn London began by assessing the strength of Hannah’s hair. This was done to determine which application process (bonded or tape-in strips) would be best suited to her hair type. Together, they opted for keratininfused bonds, which are not only discreet, but also kind to hair – one of Hannah’s top concerns.
co lou r ma tc hin g Now with her plan firmly in place, it was time to find Hannah’s colour match. But with such an extensive range of base and fashion shades to choose from, collating the perfect blend was super easy. Alex also factored in boosting her overall colour and selected lighter pieces to achieve natural-looking highlights. Bring. It. On.
es s ap pli ca tio n pr oc Applied using heat and/or ultrasound system, each bond was wrapped around sections of Hannah’s supporting hair, with the application lasting three hours. (However, depending on the desired look, number of extensions, and system used, the process can be as quick as one hour.) Whatever you go for, say hello to fuller hair!
“It’s amazing what a Great Lengths enhancement can achieve; I just can’t believe how natural it looks. The overall texture feels so much thicker and healthier, and knowing that the extensions haven’t damaged my already fragile hair is crucial. Its thinness has always been a real confidence crusher, and getting bonds has given me the boost I needed to stop worrying and start feeling great about my hair.”

Hey s ummer don’t mess with my skin 8 WAYS TO KEEP YOUR FACE FLAWLESS IN THE HEAT
BANISH BREAKOUTS Keep skin squeaky clean
Essential-C Day Moisture SPF30 £55 Murad
Gentle Exfoliator Brightening Toner £25 Clarins
TACKLE POLLUTION Load up on antioxidants “Ultimately, higher pollution levels in summer cause inflammation in the skin and increase free radical exposure,” says skincare guru Noella Gabriel. “Ensure you’re thoroughly cleansing, toning and applying an efective antioxidant product.”
PROTECT AGAINST UV Wear SPF “To combat damage and premature ageing caused by UVA rays, use daily SPF,” says Dr Mammone. “Avoid direct sunlight in peak hours (11am-4pm), or wear a hat to protect your face.”
Photoderm M SPF50+ £13 Bioderma
“In warm, humid months, sebum, or oil, becomes more fluid and flows more easily out of the pores,” says skincare expert Dr Tom Mammone. “There is also an increase in perspiration, which acts as an emulsifier, allowing oil to spread easily over the skin. This could result in dense, clogged skin and blemishes. Use a non-clogging sunscreen and exfoliate to avoid this.” “I recommend using a gentle AHA product to exfoliate in the summer months, but minimise sun exposure and always wear SPF,” says aesthetic doctor Dr Maryam Zamani.
Biotec Skin Energising Cleanser £39.50 Elemis
BE AU T Y 5
“Heat can dilate the capillaries under the skin, which can cause redness,” says Dr Mammone. “To prevent it, use a soothing cream to calm and strengthen the capillary walls to reduce this redness. If you already have heat rash, use soothing cold compresses, and antihistamines to reduce itching.”
AVOID IRRITATION Time your treatments
“Any stronger peels, microdermabrasion, laser and waxing should be done five to ten days before you go into the sun,” says facialist Debbie Thomas. “Otherwise you’ll find the skin reddens in the sun and is prone to issues like melasma.”
MELT-PROOF YOUR MAKE-UP 6 Simplify “Avoid layering primer, foundation, concealer, powder and highlighter by using an all-in-one product like Complexion Rescue Tinted Hydrating Gel Cream SPF30 [£26 bareMinerals],” says celebrity make-up artist Angela Davis-Deacon. “Best for drier skin types, this has you (sheerly) covered with moisture, colour and sun protection.”
STOP SPF BUILD-UP Wipe away residue
Sheer Cheek Gel in Rosy £14 Pixi
“Before each new application of SPF, wipe your skin with an unperfumed, alcohol-free face wipe to remove all the sweat, oil and old SPF,” says Debbie.
8 MAKE YOUR BLUSH LAST Use a gel “Gel and ‘stain’ formulas, rather than creams or powders, are the way to go in the heat,” says Angela. “And remember: less is usually best.”

#Ask EXPERT ADVICE FROM OUR BEAUTY DIRECTOR, ALESSANDRA STEINHERR. THIS MONTH: HOW TO DO SUMMER BEAUTY AT WORK
P S T O H E AT - P R
I love summer, but not what the heat and humidity do to my face, make-up sliding of being the main issue (not pretty when you have to look presentable in a meeting). Here are my tricks…
1 PRIME I find primer anchors make-up when the heat is on. Laura Mercier’s new one (Blemish-Less Foundation Primer £29) is perfect if you have oily, breakout-prone skin.
2 PAT These Micro. Mini Correct.Four £23 Beautyblender are ideal for blending in hard-to-reach areas, like under the eyes and around the nose, where make-up tends to move around.
3 FIX It might seem counter-intuitive, but spraying over with Fix’ Make-Up £24 Clarins not only refreshes your skin and make-up, but also locks it in place.
Lipsticks that won’t budge, in 2 textures FULL COVERAGE Vivid Matte Liquid in Coral Courage £6.99 Maybelline
By now we know beautiful skin starts from within, specifically in your gut. Good digestion = healthy skin. Hence the trend for eating fermented foods such as sauerkraut, but I struggle with the taste. Instead, I reach for Antioxidant Inner Beauty Boost £29 The Beauty Chef – it’s packed with gut-friendly pre- and probiotics for clearer, glowier skin.
SHEER VEIL Rouge Edition Souffle de Velvet in Plum Plum Pidou £8.99 Bourjois

polish like a pro A beach-worthy body doesn’t require a major overhaul. You can absolutely transform your skin in your own bathroom.

Swimsuit Eres
load up on SPF No matter how much, or how little, skin you’re showcasing, saturate your body and face with a high-factor SPF (we recommend a minimum of SPF30, but our personal preference is SPF50). Also look beyond SPF – ensure your sunscreen is broad spectrum (meaning it blocks both UVA and UVB rays) and photostable (so it won’t disintegrate when exposed to sunlight). Our new fave is Daily Defence Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF30 £55 Zelens. Bikini Pistol Panties

What separates you from beach anxiety syndrome is savvy planning. Start early (a month before is ideal, but even a week is great) with regular body exfoliation and hydration, which will soften, smooth and de-puf. (Just massaging a body cream or oil from head to toe will drain fluids to reveal a sleeker body.) Adding daily dry body brushing will supercharge the efect by stimulating the circulation, resulting in less water retention and an all-over streamlined figure. (Try Natural Bristle Body Brush £8.50 Liz Earle.) Your beach routine couldn’t be easier – it’s called sunscreen. From hydrating tinted face formulas to oil-free body sprays, they’ve got you covered and are your insurance policy against sunburn, premature ageing and more serious skin issues.

Roasting under the sun to achieve golden-goddess status? No, thanks. We’d rather be sun-safe and achieve sun-kissed perfection with the latest selftanning potions, and up our beach-babe vibe with summerscented body oils, shimmer sprays and perfumes. We don’t really do well with rules – but beauty advice to respect is to wax, shave and thread well beforehand, as these can remove self-tanner. Also keep in mind that the drier the skin, the more it absorbs self-tan, which can lead to streaks – so keep moisturised from head to toe for a patch-free tan.
bronze up Restraint is key with bronzing. The freshest application technique involves a bouncy sponge, like Miracle Complexion Sponge ÂŁ5.99 Real Techniques, and a translucent bronzer, such as Bronzing Gel ÂŁ30 Sensai. Dab it across your forehead, temples, on and under your cheekbones, and over the bridge of your nose for a natural, sunny glow. O Bikini Pistol Panties

#nocarb #glutenfree #wheatfree #nodairy #ditchsugar THE HASHTAGS ARE EVERYWHERE, BUT WHAT DOES CUTTING OUT THESE FOODS REALLY DO TO YOUR HEALTH? HANNAH EBELTHITE REPORTS
hese days, it’s hard to be sure what a healthy diet means. All the food chat coming from social media seems to start with ‘no’ or end in ‘free’. And forget having friends over for dinner – you’d have to cater for so many diferent dietary needs, it would be easier to just throw a party in Whole Foods. Whether you want a slimmer waist, flatter abs, clearer skin, a calmer gut or more energy, the message seems to be that cutting out foods containing gluten, wheat, dairy or sugar – or banning carbs
altogether – is the way to go. But is slashing a whole food type – sometimes a whole food group – ever a good idea? “If it’s medically necessary,” says Helen Bond, spokesperson for the British Dietetic Association. “But if it’s not, then you’re veering into faddy eating. The food groups – starchy carbohydrates, fruit and vegetables, protein, dairy and unsaturated fats – each contain macro and micro nutrients essential to health. They exist for a reason.” So before you join a free-from tribe, read our expert guide – and proceed with caution.
pens whe ap
…you cut gluten?
WHY WOULD I DO THAT? According to the Food Standards Agency, the gluten-free industry is worth over £238 million and one in five of us regularly buys gluten-free. Yet only one in 100 has a true allergy to gluten (coeliac disease). Some people do have an intolerance to gluten or wheat, and both can be a trigger in irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), “but it’s also become a fashionable choice,” says registered dietitian Juliette Kellow. “Trends like clean eating, raw food and paleo diets often avoid foods that contain wheat or gluten, and plenty of celebrities claim cutting it keeps them slim.” Think twice “Bread is an afordable, convenient source of fibre, vitamins and minerals if you choose wholegrain,” says Kellow. And the alternatives like gluten-free can be pricey and less healthy. “Manufacturers often add extra fat and/or sugar if they remove gluten. So unless you have a diagnosed allergy or intolerance, it’s not healthier.” Many people also think starchy carbs (bread, pasta) make them bloated. “Yet The British Nutrition Foundation has done extensive research and found no link between bread and bloating,” says Bond. So it’s less likely to be what you’re eating and more likely to be how much. Toast for breakfast, a sandwich for lunch, pasta for dinner…
HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOU REALLY HAVE AN INTOLERANCE?
By Helen Bond of the British Dietetic Association If you’re worried about any symptom, be it a change in bowel habits, digestive discomfort, skin, energy or weight issues, always see your GP. O Keep a detailed food, symptom and mood diary for a month before giving up any foods. OIf you spot a pattern of symptoms following certain food types, choose one and eliminate it for two to four weeks (so don’t give up gluten and dairy – if symptoms improve, you won’t know which made the diference). OIf you feel better, you may have a sensitivity to that food. Eliminate it, but replace its nutrients (the goal is to gradually reintroduce the food, not give it up for life). ODon’t waste your money on internet and high-street testing services. All the above is best done under the guidance of a registered dietitian or qualified nutritionist. Your GP may refer you, or try freelancedietitians.org O
FOCUS ON: COELIAC DISEASE
by Norma McGough, dietitian at Coeliac UK “For coeliacs, eating gluten triggers an immune reaction that damages the gut lining, reducing its ability to absorb nutrients. Symptoms include bloating, diarrhoea, abdominal pain and weight loss. Sound like you? See your GP for tests (don’t cut out gluten first; it can give a false negative).” isitcoeliacdisease.org.uk
“Wholegrain bread is a source of fibre and vitamins” GLAMOUR
REBEL FLY IN THE FACE OF SANDWICH TRADITION
NEW CHILLI & LIME
…you cut carbs? WHY WOULD I DO THAT? Ever since your mum first did Atkins, people on a weight-loss mission have believed carbs are the enemy. “It’s easy to eat too many carbs, so if you cut down, you’re automatically slashing your calories,” says nutritionist Ian Marber. Think twice Carbs are brain food. “They provide the glucose our brains need to function,” says Bond. Ever felt ‘hangry’ or the brain fog descend at work when you haven’t eaten? That’s why. “They’re also essential for performance and recovery in exercise.” But before you reach for that croissant, remember not all carbs are equal. “Simple, refined carbohydrates like white bread,
white pasta and white rice aren’t big on nutrients and won’t fill you up for long,” she says. “Plus, lots of processed carbohydrate products come laden with fat, salt and sugar.” Instead of ditching, switch to wholegrain, unrefined ‘brown’ versions to fuel your brain, stay full and get enough fibre and other essential heart-healthy nutrients. The key? “Watch portion size: it should be around the size of a tennis ball,” says Bond. “And vary your grains if you have indigestion or bloating. Try rice, couscous, barley, bulgur wheat, buckwheat, quinoa, spelt or polenta. A new source of carbs might not cause the same symptoms.”
“Carbs provide the glucose our brains need to function”
…you quit dairy?
“It’s important for young women to get enough calcium”
WHY WOULD I DO THAT? “Dairy goes through phases of being demonised,” says consultant nutritionist Azmina Govindji. “Some believe they’re lactose intolerant, allergic to cow’s milk protein or find it’s a trigger for their IBS. Others have environmental or ethical reasons and/or are vegan. And some are convinced it contributes to acne or upper-respiratory symptoms like colds and catarrh.” Think twice “It’s really important, for young women especially, to get enough calcium, for healthy bones and teeth,” says Govindji. “Yes, you can get it from other sources such as dark green leafy vegetables. But you’d have to eat three times the weight of broccoli as milk to get the same amount.” Aim for three portions a day, a portion being one glass of milk, a matchbox-sized piece of cheese or
150g yoghurt. Worried it’s fattening? Despite the name, even full-fat milk isn’t a high-fat food. And plenty of studies have linked a diet high in calcium to being a healthy weight. Always report new symptoms of digestive discomfort to your GP, so true allergy or intolerance can be identified, but the good news is that many cases of lactose intolerance are temporary, triggered by a gastrointestinal illness. If you’re still convinced a dairy-free life is for you, seek out fortified alternatives. “A switch to lactose-free or A2 milk (which has the protein some people react to removed) may work,” says Govindji. “Or try plant-based versions, such as soya alternatives to milk, or rice, oat or nut milks.” Check the label to make sure it’s fortified with calcium and not sweetened.

THE TREND THAT’S HERE TO STAY? GIVING UP MEAT Whether it’s Meat Free Mondays, an alkaline diet or becoming vegan or vegetarian, plant-based diets have never been more fashionable – be it for health or ethical reasons.
…you give up sugar?
WHY WOULD I DO THAT? Unless you’ve been hiding on a remote island for the past few years, you can’t fail to have noticed the anti-sugar public health advice. The new version of the Eat Well Plate, an infographic the government’s Department of Health uses to show us what food groups we need and in what proportion, leaves sugary foods of the plate altogether. “All carbohydrates, including fruit and vegetables, are broken down into glucose in the body and we need that for energy,” says Kellow. “It’s sugars that aren’t naturally present in foods that are the problem, added by manufacturers or you. New guidelines conclude adults should have no more than seven teaspoons a day. A can of fizzy drink can contain nine, so it’s very easy to exceed.” And having them in excess is linked with obesity, diabetes and dental decay. Think twice “Don’t become obsessed and start fearing foods,” cautions Bond. There are some foods and drinks that have sugar as the main ingredient and give you little else, like sugary drinks and confectionery,” says Kellow. “But others have more to ofer and a little sugar makes things more palatable, such as nutrient-rich wholegrain breakfast cereals, fruit loaf or a bran mufin.” Likewise, 150ml of fruit juice a day is a valuable source of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fibre. Being aware of sugar content is a good idea. And if you like baking, you can halve the sugar content of most recipes without afecting the results. “Just don’t take it too seriously,” says Marber. “The odd slice of birthday cake won’t hurt.” Beware of: sugar substitutes, some of which are just sugar by another name. Honey, date purée, brown sugar – they’re just masquerading as the healthier choice. If you want a sugar-free sweetness, go for a natural, low-calorie sweetener such as stevia or xylitol. 206
FOR “Research shows non-meat eaters may be less likely to sufer from Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and many cancers,” says Kellow. IF YOU DON’T EAT MEAT “You need to replace the nutrients with foods such as beans, lentils, nuts and tofu.” Visit meatfreemondays.co.uk; vegsoc.org/vhealthy for ideas. AGAINST Red meat is an important source of protein, iron, vitamin D and zinc. “One in ten UK women is clinically iron deficient,” says Dr Carrie Ruxton, dietitian at the Meat Advisory Panel. Vegetarians can also lack vitamin B12, which can cause low energy. IF YOU EAT MEAT “Choose lean cuts, grill or dry-fry and remember a 70g portion is the size of your palm,” says Dr Ruxton. There is a link between red or processed meat and colorectal cancer, but only when eaten to excess (over 70g a day). O

PHOTOGRAPH by SIMON DI PRINCIPE
inding your happy place may take time and experimentation. When I say ‘place’, I don’t mean a white sandy beach on a far-off deserted island. I mean a time and space where you can get into your creative flow; where you can feel blissfully calm, content and balanced. Maybe you already know exactly what that is for you and can happily relax into this activity whenever needed. When I feel anxious or stressed, I instinctively walk to my cookbook shelf and look for something to create. Every step of the cooking process fills my head with calm, melts away self-doubt and pushes my feel-good levels to the max. Measuring out the ingredients, stirring, grating, chopping, blending – they all send my busy brain into a catatonic state of ease. A meditation, if you like. I focus only on the task at hand and the result I want. And that result offers me so much comfort, too, whether it’s because I get to eat and enjoy the fruits of my labour, or simply that I can watch others smile as they chomp away merrily. As I get older, I want to know exactly what’s going into my body, and I want that fuel to be the
FA S T LI V ING American pancakes best and most natural it can be. This sort of cooking or baking gives me tons of much-needed energy, as well as making me feel balanced and healthy. When I was in my twenties, I would rush about from work to a gig to a friend’s house to a party, snacking on the run. I rarely gave much thought to where that food had come from or what it was doing to my insides. Now, I love every mouthful of food, as not only does it taste delicious, but it’s doing my insides good, too. We seem to have forgotten, in this fast-paced day and age, that our bodies are linked to our minds. We tend to see them as separate entities, acting differently when given the same information, but our emotions will, of course, be more balanced if we eat well. Good food goes in, our bodies work to their optimum, we have more energy, which is being distributed evenly – and so we ditch the highs and lows of crash dieting or eating « poorly, then substituting calories Every step of the cooking with sugar and processed foods. process fills my head Fad diets take up time, have quick with calm, melts away results that don’t last and usually self-doubt and pushes my leave you feeling moody and wired. feel-good levels to the max Not a situation you can keep up for » long. Cooking healthy homemade food is something that’s realistic long term. And so good on so many levels: for your body, your mind and your happiness. For women, food is far too often synonymous with ‘weight’, and it doesn’t have to be like that. Food is something to celebrate, to create, to empower, to enrich and to enjoy. Cooking doesn’t have to be massively timeconsuming, a hassle or expensive. I’m a working mum juggling plates, like many of you, but I like to try to weave cooking and baking into my everyday life. I often make my lunch for work days in the morning while the kids are eating breakfast; or, when I have more time, I love to get the kids involved, so they have a chance to get messy and learn along the way. So, your ‘happy place’ might be knitting hats or swimming, rather than cooking or baking – but I still hope you’ll enjoy these fun, easy recipes…
with coconut, berries & maple syrup
“It’s pancake day nearly every day in our house. They’re quick, easy to make and great if you’re dashing out the door. Everyone in my family has their own preferred toppings, but this is my favourite. Roll them up and off you go!” SERVES TWO TO THREE 140g white spelt flour, sifted 1tsp baking powder Good pinch of sea salt 2 eggs, beaten 50ml almond milk or rice milk 50ml coconut water (or another 50ml milk) Coconut or sunflower oil, for frying 100g berries (your choice), to serve Maple syrup, to serve 1tbsp desiccated coconut, to serve Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. In a separate bowl, mix together the eggs, milk and coconut water. Gradually mix the liquid mixture into the flour mixture until smooth. Heat 3 teaspoons of oil in a nonstick frying pan over a medium heat. Once the oil is hot, pour in about 3 tablespoons of batter per pancake, so they measure roughly 8cm across. Fry the pancakes in batches, adding more oil to the pan if needed, for 2-3 minutes, until bubbles appear on the surface, then flip them over and fry for a further 1-2 minutes until both sides are golden. Keep warm. Serve the pancakes with the berries, drizzle over some maple syrup and sprinkle with a little desiccated coconut. Serve immediately.
1 head of baby gem lettuce, chopped 1 ripe avocado, halved, stoned, skin removed and flesh cut into chunks 100g sour cream (optional) Small handful of flat-leaf parsley or coriander leaves, roughly chopped 1 lime, cut into wedges Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper For the spicy black beans: 1tbsp olive oil 1 small onion, finely chopped 2 cloves garlic, crushed 1 ⁄2tsp ground coriander 1 ⁄2tsp ground cumin 1 ⁄2tsp ground cinnamon 1 ⁄2tsp sweet smoked paprika 1 ⁄2 red chilli, deseeded (if you like) and finely chopped 400g can black beans To make the spicy black beans, heat the oil in a pan over a medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, and sauté for 5 minutes until soft and transparent, but not coloured. Introduce the spices and fry for a further 2 minutes, then add the black beans (plus the liquid from the can), and simmer for 10 minutes uncovered, stirring occasionally, until you have a thick and creamy mixture. Remove from the heat and set aside. To make the salsa, mix the ingredients in a bowl and season to taste. Set aside. Clean out the pan you used for the black beans and place it over a high heat. Toss the sliced peppers in a bowl with the oil, and season with salt and pepper. Once the pan is hot, add the peppers and stir-fry for 5 minutes, until they slightly char and begin to soften. Remove from pan and keep warm. If you are using the steak, drizzle both sides with olive oil and season well. Place the same pan you used to fry the pepper over a high heat and, when it’s smoking hot, add the steak. For a steak 2cm thick, fry it for 2 minutes on each side for medium-rare, or longer if you prefer your steak well done. Remove the steak from the pan and leave to rest for 5 minutes. Once the steak has rested, slice it into thin strips. Place a clean, dry frying pan over a high heat. Warm the tortillas, one at a time, for 30 seconds on each side or until softened.
2 3 Tacos “My love of tacos is immense. This makes for a great meal with friends, as it’s quick and fun and a bit messy to eat. Bliss!” SERVES FOUR TO SIX 2tbsp olive oil (add extra for beef, if you’re using it) 1 red pepper, deseeded and cut into 1cm-thick slices 1 green pepper, deseeded and cut into 1cm-thick slices 225g sirloin steak (optional) 4 corn tortillas 212

Courgette & carrot spaghetti with roasted red peppers & minty basil pesto
“A deliciously light dish that is full of flavour, and looks pretty, too!” SERVES TWO 2 courgettes 1 carrot 2tbsp olive oil 100g roasted red peppers from a jar, cut into strips Parmesan shavings, to serve (optional) Freshly ground black pepper, to taste For the minty basil pesto: 30g raw unsalted cashew nuts 10g fresh mint leaves 40g fresh basil, leaves and stalks, plus a few extra leaves to garnish 1 clove garlic 75ml extra-virgin olive oil Sea salt, to taste
Preheat the oven to 200°C/180°C fan/ 400°F/gas mark 6. Spread out the cashew nuts for the pesto on a baking tray and roast for about 5 minutes until golden and aromatic. Watch them carefully so they do not burn. Remove from oven and leave to cool. Meanwhile, use a spiralizer or julienne peeler to make the courgette and carrot ‘noodles’. Alternatively, use a peeler to cut the vegetables lengthways into very thin slices. They can be used like this, or cut again lengthways into even thinner noodles. Set aside. To make the pesto, place the cooled cashews in the bowl of a food processor with the mint, basil (retaining a few leaves for a garnish) and garlic, and blitz until it has almost turned into a paste. Gradually drizzle in the extra-virgin olive oil, while the blade is still turning, until you have a thick and creamy pesto. Season with salt to taste and set aside.
Heat the oil in a frying pan over a low heat. Add the vegetable noodles and most of the red pepper slices and sauté gently for 4-5 minutes, until the noodles have softened slightly. Add 3-4 tablespoons of the pesto, mix together gently, and season with salt and pepper to taste. Plate up the noodles and remaining red pepper slices, and scatter over the remaining basil leaves and a few shavings of Parmesan cheese, if you like. O

12 ways to sabotage a wedding by VIV GROSKOP
and send a signal for someone to call you at the “If anyone knows any just cause or impediment” bit.
A LTE R N ATI VE LY,
4 BRING A SCREAMING TODDLER, despite the ‘no kids’ policy.
5 Tell the best man that people are betting he can’t down three double whiskies before his speech.
is si n g I’ m m P ig a P e p p IS ? TH r fo
wear a squeaky leather trouser suit and get obscenely amorous with your new partner during the quiet bits of the service.
MAKE A MASSIVE FUSS ABOUT NOT BEING SEATED CLOSE ENOUGH TO THE BRIDE (“My best friend!”) at the dinner. Then get blindingly, weepy drunk.
7 TELL EVERYONE you meet how lucky it is that you’re JUST ABOUT over that horrendously contagious sickness and diarrhoea bug after planting one on them and taking a swig of their Champagne.
Get with the bride’s father. 9
Get with the groom’s mother. 10 Talk loudly and incessantly about how different it is to the groom’s ex’s wedding last year, which was also much more expensive. 232
ASK YOUR MALE PLUS ONE TO WEAR A KILT WITH (“HILARIOUSLY”) NOTHING ON UNDERNEATH, AND INSIST HE PROVES IT THROUGHOUT THE DAY.
12 BRIBE THE DJ to play the Birdie Song. Twice.
