editor’s letter

L e t ’s h e a r i t for true love AS WE APPROACH ANOTHER VALENTINE’S DAY, I’M GOING TO ADMIT THAT THE WHOLE THING HAS ALWAYS LEFT ME COLD. I think when I was younger I sort Boys, hair dramas and playground politics – yep, of rejected it before it could reject me. I’ve never been the girl a solid decade of dork lies who gets the big delivery at work, from a secret or not-soin these envelopes secret admirer. And then, when I did find The One, we agreed that we’re not that into it. Each to their own, but personally, feeling. And I know Leanne was the same. When she visited I prefer the unexpected little romantic moments rather than me, with her teenage daughter in tow, the conversation flowed the communal Designated Day Of Showing Love. the same as it did when we were kids. But it has started me thinking about some of the loves When we think of love, we tend to think of it as of my life that I really want to celebrate, so mostly about that relationship with our significant I’m going to indulge here for a second. “Those other, the relationship that’s wrapped up in sex. But It was brought home to me by my friend Leanne. letters were when Leanne was able to produce those letters for We met when we were ten. We were inseparable until the only me, some 30+ years on?

WE HEAR YOU

“We all need support”

ET R L S TA

@thelifestyleprincess @thebodycoach @glamouruk Thank you very much! This has DEFINITELY brightened up the January Blues

YOU YOU YOU

& LSoevxe

I was truly moved by How To Get An MA In Love. I’ve been having a hard time – my mother has terminal cancer, my brother is ill and I have recently been diagnosed with two shadows on my brain. I’ve tried so hard to be positive, but it’s put stress on my relationship, with my boyfriend often feeling like he can’t ‘trouble me’ with his problems. But after we read your article, we have decided that no matter what, we will always make time for each other’s problems. Talking about things is so important. Thank you so much. Amber, by email

TER

How to get an MA in love THAT’S A DEGREE IN ‘MICRO AFFECTION’ – BECAUSE THE LITTLE THINGS DO MATTER

BE YOUR OWN ROM-COM “My favourite thing we do is greet each other dramatically on public transport. If one of us meets the other at the Tube station, train platform or bus stop, we have to run slow-motion towards each other like in a movie. We do long distance most of the time (I live in London, he lives in Oxford), and that one silly ritual makes our reunions more exciting. It’s the corniest thing, but it’s our approach to our whole relationship: be dramatic and do things that make us laugh.” Matilda, 25

HIT THE RESET BUTTON “Whenever my ex-boyfriend and I used to fight, one of us would press the other person’s belly button and make a ‘boop’ noise, like it was our reset button. It meant we had to start our conversation again, and try to make it a nicer one. It was surprisingly effective – probably because it was quite silly – but being a bit childish with each other worked for us. It reminded us not to take ourselves too seriously.” Claudia, 34

CLOTHES OFF, PHONES OFF “We have one unbreakable rule at home: when we’re in bed, we’re not allowed to wear pyjamas, or use technology. It’s a no-clothes, no-phones zone and it increases our chances of having sex by 100%. Naked time is sacred time, and it makes us feel so much closer.” Edwina, 32

Best. UberPOOL. Ever

SET UP A SAFE WORD “We were 14 and had no real concept of forever, but we swore that no matter what, if one of us said the word ‘pancakes’ in a context outside of brunch, it meant we needed support. It was our emotional safe word throughout our relationship, and I reckon all couples should have one – a password that gives us direct access to sentimental support and love. My ex and I are on lovely terms, and I genuinely think if I messaged him that word now, he’d call and check I was OK.” Kate, 28

GET IN ON EACH OTHER’S HOBBIES “I love reading, but my husband has severe dyslexia, so he’ll often get the same book as me on tape, and listen along at night. Or I’ll read a chapter out loud before falling asleep. It’s just a tiny gesture, but it says a lot about the way we ‘do’ love – which is to be together as much as possible. I realise some people would say you should have hobbies of your own, but we work together as well, so we need to build in time doing small quality things together, or we’d just end up talking shop all the time.” Harriet, 30

This month’s star letter wins a BaByliss 3Q Hair Dryer, worth £120. It has a lighter-weight body to make styling more comfortable, and super-advanced brushless motor technology. The perfect solution for smooth hair. babyliss.co.uk

I’ve been an avid reader of Glamour since I could get away with nicking my sister’s copies. I’m glad that your fashion pages are encouraging and positive, rather than tearing people down for their style choices. Charlotte, by email

@GemPinkney Impatiently waiting for every film on @GlamourMagUK’s The Big Hitters list, might have to tear out and use as a 2017 film checklist.

Get real

@jadeeenewman The #HeyItsOK page in @GlamourMagUK is always my favourite because I can always relate to every single one!

I feel let down by a quote from Joe Wicks’ takeover interview – “The moment I have a child that’s it – I’m going to be with that woman forever.” Does he know something we don’t? Nobody wants to put their child through the upset of a break-up. We do it because we know that a child with two happy parents is far, far better than one with two miserable parents. Emma, by email

@KatNicDhaidhild The answers in @GlamourMagUK Let’s Talk Balls from a male dominant are so valid to dispel myths around #malesexuality

launches Diana: Her Fashion Story, mapping a very public style evolution. “Our exhibition sees her growing in confidence throughout her life, increasingly taking control of how she was represented, and intelligently communicating through her clothes,” says curator Eleri Lynn. Quite. And never more so than when she stepped out in the infamous ‘Revenge Dress’, a sexy, low-cut LBD, for one of her first public appearances since Prince Charles’ confession of adultery. As in life, Diana took bold risks with her fashion choices, and we loved her for it. The shy teen who once (unwittingly) posed in a see-through skirt, soon learned to play the media and become the master of dressing for the spotlight. From swanning around the dancefloor with John Travolta in a formal ballgown, to rocking a quirky teal tartan Emanuel suit, Diana knew how to make sure all eyes were on her. On duty or off-duty – even all these decades later – Princess Diana remains a trendsetter. And that’s what makes a style icon. O

VETEMENTS

GUCCI GUCCI

When did taste get so Come back velour tracksuits, brash logo tees and Crocs, all is forgiven. This season, being uncool is the coolest thing you can do…

VETEMENTS

VETEMENTS

CHRISTOPHER KANE

by LAURA ANTONIA JORDAN

Croc stars The rubbery clogs were a Bad Taste hit at Christopher Kane’s S/S17 show

L

adies, we need to talk about Crocs. Not the reptilian kind, but the equally terrifying (though far less fierce) lightweight rubber shoes sported by chefs, retiree gardeners and the under-fives. Well, now you can add the fashion pack to that list. Yes, you read that right. At Christopher Kane’s S/S17 show – his 10th anniversary – he paraded a succession of sensuous dresses down the catwalk grounded by the clumpy, foamy clogs. It was strange, subversive and, somehow, it worked. And just like that, they became the coolest shoe of the season. Stranger still is that, this spring, Crocs find themselves jostling for space in your new-season wardrobe alongside a number of off and odd, naff and nasty pieces. Velour tracksuits and logo-emblazoned tees, diamanté embellishment and cowboy boots, transparent platforms and combat trousers – they’ve all been welcomed in from the cold. Fashion is in the full throes of a love affair with Bad Taste and, here’s the kicker, it feels great. Taste is, of course, subjective. But in the social media age of a million expertly curated Instagram feeds, it doesn’t quite feel like that. No, Good Taste is embossed into our collective conscience: it’s grey cashmere sweaters and impeccably tailored trousers, marble tables and peonies. It’s an expensive Barolo to Bad Taste’s blue alcopop. So how does fashion Bad Taste (you know, rather than just plain old ‘bad bad taste’) look now? What might make you balk is that it borrows so heavily from an era most of us remember the first time round: the late 35


“Kim Kardashian lives where Bad Taste and high fashion collide”

’90s/early Noughties. A time when perhaps we wore these pieces with sincerity. We remember The Simple Life, for goodness’ sake! Fear not. This isn’t about dressing up as Paris and Nicole. The new pieces are worn in a new way or subtly rethought. So the proportions of the velour tracksuits feel more ‘now’, those Crocs come in rock-embellished marble-effect rubber and the brazen logo tees are designed to look like fakes (very meta). If social media has helped decree the rules of Good Taste, it’s also propelled the new hunger for Bad Taste items in all their basic brilliance. “Loud, proud, brash pieces and ‘ironic’ statements make better ’grams,” says Harriet Hawksworth, style.com’s senior womenswear editor, who has a knack of making talon nails, zebra print and a denim Dior saddle bag look cool. Outside the S/S17 shows, the style set were already embracing these sartorial E-numbers. The key to pulling it off? A mix: Alexa Chung throwing a garish silver rodeo Miu Miu jacket over a simple slip. And Kim Kardashian lives smack bang in the middle of the Venn diagram where Bad Taste and high fashion collide. The queen of the Bad Taste movement is Lotta Volkova – arguably the most achingly cool girl in the world right now. Lotta is stylist for Vetements, the brand that doesn’t just capture, but shapes, the zeitgeist. Building from last season’s Titanic hoodie that looked like it was from a market stall or those garish cigarette-lighter-heel boots, this season Vetements brought back an item we had surely confined to the ‘never again’ box: the Juicy Couture tracksuit, complete with diamanté bums. You can now find Juicy tracksuits in Selfridges Designer Studio, with the likes of Marni and Joseph. In an era of stealth wealth and quiet luxury, the new movement towards obvious branding bucks this trend. (Ostentatious display of wealth? How very Bad Taste!) Net-A-Porter’s retail fashion director Lisa Aiken explains: “The power of the logo has been

revived for S/S17, and we’ve backed this in a really big way,” she says. “Brands such as Gucci and D&G cleverly kicked off the trend by reworking fake tees to create ‘genuine fakes’. It’s these types of statement items that fast become cult buys for the season, as everybody wants them. We also launched Off-White’s bag collection, which heavily featured the label’s branding, and it sold out instantly.” Fakes don’t just make designers shudder, but genuine fashion fans, too. So why play up to it? Indeed, where’s the appeal of embracing these Bad Taste items at all? Well, for one, it shows you’re in on the joke, a nod to those in the know. The curator Judith Clark, who has written books on everything from Diana Vreeland to Hussein Chalayan and curated the Barbican’s brilliant Vulgar exhibition, observes, “It is as if to say, ‘I am doing it deliberately and so I cannot be accused of not understanding the rules of taste.’” It’s a concept Harriet echoes: “I think it’s a bit of one-upmanship, like: ‘I’m so stylish, I can make literally anything work. Even this plastic stripper shoe.’” Ultimately, though, isn’t it just great fun? There’s something wonderfully freeing about throwing caution to the wind, giving the myth of the pristine capsule wardrobe the finger and dressing like nobody’s judging. Not giving a stuff (or at least looking like it) – what could be more stylish than that? O 3

BACK IN 2007, I WAS AN INTERNat this very magazine and firmly committed to tartan hotpants, faux-fur coats and vintage prom dresses (what can I say? I was still finding my style DNA). Minimalism was certainly not my style. Luckily, that was the year a new shop called Cos arrived on the British high street. That store full of Scandi cool – coupled with the challenges of attempting to look stylish while earning an assistant’s salary – taught me the joy of good-quality basics. Breathing a self-assured minimalism into my wardrobe, it became a fashion lifeline for me, and still is as I continue to hunt out those simple separates and cleverly reinvented classics that have now formed ‘my look’. You could say we’ve had a long-term thing* (*love) going on. March marks Cos’ 10th anniversary, and to celebrate they’re releasing a ten-piece collection of iconic pieces that epitomise the brand’s unassuming and understated aesthetic. Made from crisp cotton and technical polyester in an easy palette of sand and white, it’s soothingly uncomplicated. Each piece has been created like a jigsaw, with the full width of fabric used to reduce waste, so that’s a big tick in the sustainable box, too. I opt for a skirt suit – a kimono-style jacket and matching pencil skirt, in which I feel polished and put together. Further appeal lies in these pieces as separates (kimono jacket with raw denim jeans, pencil skirt with a fine knit and trainers). I relish not road-testing a tricky trend, blending into a crowd but noticing the odd admiring look. In years to come, I’m sure I’ll be one of those sixtysomething ladies I peruse the rails with in-store. Cos x me for life. Cos’ 10th-anniversary collection is on sale March 24 in-store and at cosstores.com

POWER DRESSING 2.0 Fashion’s unlikely inspiration this season? The female power players of politics. Get on board with pinstripes, shoulder pads and skirt suits, says L A U R A A N T O N I A J O R DA N HAS ANY WORLD LEADER’S FOOTWEAR BEEN SCRUTINISED QUITE AS CLOSELY AS THERESA MAY’S? Unlikely. Certainly, it’s hard to imagine a full-page close-up of, say, David Cameron’s shoes appearing on the front of The Sun as May’s did, under the headline “Heel, boys,” the day after she won the Conservative Party leadership contest last July. Since she sported leopardprint kitten heels at the Tory conference in 2002, May’s every step has been studied by fashion followers and political pundits alike. So, on her succession to the premiership, did the PM tone down her wardrobe in a bid to be taken more seriously? Did she heck. Instead, she simply quipped it was an “excuse to go and buy new shoes”, and got on with the business of Brexit. Whatever you think of Tory Party policy, the Prime Minister is an apt figurehead for the new take on power dressing. As a self42

confessed fashion fan (when she appeared on Desert Island Discs, the PM chose a lifetime subscription to Vogue as her luxury item), May is a reminder that an appreciation of fashion and understanding of the FTSE aren’t mutually exclusive. The Oxford English Dictionary defines power dressing as, “The practice of dressing in a style intended to show that one holds an important position in business, politics, etc.” But ‘power dressing’ is a loaded phrase. It conjures Elnett-hard hair and shiny grey suits. It’s the ’80s incarnate. It’s hard-nosed. It’s Margaret Thatcher, Melanie Griffith in Working Girl and Joan Collins in, well, anything. And while we might admire their ambition, we don’t want to dress like them to get ahead. Well, we don’t have to any more. For spring 2017, as fashion’s fascination with the ’80s gains momentum, the motifs of power dressing are back – but with


Every fashionable thing you need to know now a clever twist. Pinstripes take on a new perspective with distressed skirt suits at Vivienne Westwood, asymmetric two-tone dresses at Off-White and shredded shorts at Sacai. Grey skirt suits are given cool-girl kudos at Louis Vuitton, slit up the front and teamed with mid-calf boots. The shoulder-pad revival sees a quarterback silhouette incorporated into streamlined jackets at DKNY and cartoonishly proportioned versions at Jacquemus. Jil Sander’s Rodolfo Paglialunga gives us the exaggerated shape, while Balenciaga’s sculptural blazer version worn with matching miniskirt and leather stocking boots is – to borrow a line from Working Girl – surely the suit equivalent of having “a head for business and a bod for sin”. The dream buy? Céline’s languid olive trouser suit, with its boxy jacket and cropped kick-flares. In our #imwithher era, we want to celebrate being a woman, not mask it. Taking men on at their own game is a very different thing to aping a male dress code; this isn’t about looking like Gordon Gekko in heels. The Brexit appeal lawyer Gina Miller didn’t feel obliged to don a suit to take on Michael Gove in a television debate last autumn, opting instead for a fluid georgette Joseph blouse in a brilliant tomato hue. Perhaps the biggest shift, however, is that now we’ve given ourselves permission to express our personalities, we’ve also done it with what we wear. You can see it in today’s power-dressing icons: Hillary Clinton and her Pantone block brights (side note: protagonist’s pillar-box-red suit radiates authority), or human-rights lawyer Amal Clooney with her fondness for flamboyant accessories. Even Christine Lagarde, the couture-wearing managing director of the International Monetary Fund, loves an unexpected detail, or a scarf tied

Power players Margaret Thatcher and Melanie Griffith’s Working Girl had clothes to match the ballsy ’80s attitude

insouciantly just so. Or see First Lady Melania Trump’s meticulously put-together looks. Of course, pragmatism may not be the sexiest concept, but surely it’s the most powerful – comfort is key to the attitude. In these constantly connected times, the boundary between on duty and out of office is blurred, and what nine to five looks like has shifted beyond recognition. New York-based Phoebe Lovatt, the brains behind The WW [Working Women’s] Club, a platform and community for female bosses worldwide, observes, “That formal, restrictive style of power dressing was appropriate when people spent all day at their desks, but we’re far more mobile now. I literally can’t get through the day if I’m tottering around in heels and a pencil skirt.” Nowadays, you’re as likely to spy a trouser suit at brunch as you are trainers (box-fresh only, please) in the office. The introduction of trainers to your workwear repertoire is far more of a powerful call to arms than a pair of vertiginous heels. After all, how can you run a company if you can’t even run for the bus?

The Glamour team reveal their wardrobe heroes – and where they buy them

KAREN PRESTON, Fa s h i o n D i r e c t o r

“As a denim-devotee, I have one pair that seems to stand the test of time: the Levi’s ‘Wedgie’, a more flattering take on the classic 501 style. I’m not alone – there are several Wedgie-clad bottoms in the Glamour office. I love simple shirting and knits, and Uniqlo’s ongoing collaboration with French designer Christophe Lemaire is fantastic for these. You’ll also find their straight-cut men’s jeans in many a fashion editor’s wardrobe. Oh, and every summer I buy a Cos bikini – their range of classic swimwear is excellent.”

CHARLOTTE LEWIS, Shopping Editor “My style is what I’d describe as low-key and classic, or what my boyfriend calls ‘bordering on boring’. Case in point: I’ve been wearing the same style M&S black cotton knickers for as long as I can remember – £7 for a pack of five and the comfiest underwear in the world. The rest of my daily dressing is three easy steps. A T-shirt: a short-sleeved, slim-fit, ribbed H&M number (washes well and keeps its shape). A sweater: Gap classic cashmere – great colours (charcoal is my pick), machinewashable. And finally, jeans: jeans are personal, but my go-to are Gap 1969 real straight jeans in a raw-denim-inspired rinse.”

“Good basics never go out of style – the key is versatility, longevity and everlasting appeal. I’m constantly rushing around after two young sons, so rely heavily on pared-back staples that go with everything. Every winter, I buy cashmere crewnecks from the men’s department of M&S. I have one in every colour. A Breton top is another mainstay in my wardrobe, and I always buy mine in Petit Bateau. And I can’t live without a biker jacket. Zara always does a great leather one – affordable but it still lasts season after season.”

ast month, I found myself in the back of an Uber. It was 9.30pm and I was on my way home from a work drinks event. The driver was punctual and, at first, polite. Then he started talking to me about his wife. “It’s not a good marriage,” he said. I asked him why. He said he’d cheated on her with several other women because “that’s what men do”, but that he was finding it difficult to disentangle himself because, “if you’re a man, women want to trap you. They’re all the same!” The driver was clearly untroubled that he was talking to a member of the gender so desperate to tie him down. I tried to challenge him, but he didn’t

We know, right? Can you believe we still need to talk about this? Well, sorry, we do – and retro-sexism is why, says E L I Z A B E T H DA Y seem to hear. “I work; women take my money,” he continued. “They don’t want me to be free.” When he dropped me off, I felt uncomfortable. It’s not that I expect enlightened conversation every time I get into a cab. What bothered me was the driver thought he was being totally reasonable. He stated this bit of unapologetic sexism as simple, unassailable fact. In his mind, it was so obviously true that my gender didn’t even come into it. His conclusion: that’s just how women are, out to get us. It’s an attitude becoming more widespread with the rise of ‘retrosexism’ – a return to old-fashioned stereotypes and marginalisation. And chances are, most of us will have experienced some form of it: recent figures reveal 87% of women have faced sexism at work, and nearly three-quarters of all 16 to 18 year olds say they hear terms such as ‘slag’ used towards girls at schools on a regular basis. You 49

might have been accused of being ‘too emotional’ in the office, and you probably earn less than your male counterparts. It’s possible you’ve been harassed on the street or told you’re frigid for not having sex on the first date or, like me, casually informed by a taxi driver that all women are inherently the enemy. Yes, sexism is back and it’s nastier than ever. It’s there when Donald Trump, a man who publicly bragged about grabbing women “by the pussy”, is elected President of the United States. It’s there when women are routinely trolled online and subjected to sexist abuse. A study by the think tank Demos revealed that on Twitter, over a three-week period in April and early May 2016, the words ‘slut’ and ‘whore’ were used 200,000 times, directed at 80,000 individuals. It’s there when you realise there are still twice as many men named John who are CEOs or chairmen of FTSE 100 firms as there are women. It’s there when a students’ union at Cardiff Metropolitan University advertises a club night featuring a man wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with the words: “I was raping a woman last night and she cried.” It’s there when we learn that one in four of us has experienced sexual harassment on campus. And it’s there when you discover domestic violence is on the rise and that two women are killed by their partner or ex-partner every single week in England and Wales. After decades of cautious progress, during which important legislation like the Equal Pay Act was passed and women were no longer pigeonholed as wives, mothers and homemakers, it feels as if we have taken several steps backwards. It’s almost as if we’re in danger of believing feminism has been too successful, and we don’t need to worry about it any more. That we can let our guards down; take a breather. But because misogyny never really goes away, that complacency has allowed the viciousness to sprout up again like weeds through the cracks. “There’s a danger that you make the argument and people go, ‘Yeah, I agree with that,’ and then there’s no follow-through,” says Natasha Walter, author of Living Dolls: The Return Of Sexism. “You talk about domestic violence or the plight of refugee women and people will say, ‘Yeah, that’s awful. I really care about that,’ but nothing is actually done, and then there’s the feeling it’s last year’s issue, because they’ve already heard it. They

assume someone’s acted on it, and then you just become the boring feminist still asking for the same things.” This sense that we’ve already fought the necessary battles has coincided with the attitude among some men that they are being marginalised by female empowerment. The rise of men’s-rights activism has led to a deep-rooted fear that men fail when women succeed. That pits one gender against another. In the eyes of these men, we’re at war. There’s a disturbing proliferation of ‘antiwomen’ rants on YouTube, in which men rail against women in highly aggressive terms (sample: ‘women are c**ts!’). At its nadir, this culture creates men like Roosh V, a self-described ‘neo-masculine’ pick-up artist, who once said it should be legal to rape a woman on private property (he later dismissed this as a joke). Natasha Walter sees this anti-feminist rhetoric as part of a global lurch to the political right: “As feminists, we’re easy to dismiss as being part of the liberal elite, who are accused of not listening to white working-class men.” In fact, that isn’t what’s happening. The message of feminism is equality between the sexes, rather than the superiority of one over the other. It’s a message in danger of being lost amid a wave of male paranoia. So what can we do? Not give up. If anything, the emergence of retro-sexism should galvanise us, not depress us. We need to keep challenging lazy prejudice. And perhaps the reason we’re seeing this spike in sexist behaviour is because, as with any outmoded way of thinking, it fears its own impending extinction. Behavioural theorists call this an ‘extinction burst’. The theory goes that when you’re trying to remove a behaviour such as misogyny, you will often see an increase in that behaviour just before it dies. So what we’re seeing now might not be a resurgence but a death rattle. Let’s hope so. Until then, the only way retro-sexism can truly become a thing of the past is by calling it out whenever we see it. The next time a taxi driver tells me all women are out to trap him, I’m going to tell him exactly why he’s wrong.

“We’re in danger of believing feminism has been too successful”

We hear you, sister. 50


LIFE & HAPPINESS

We could print a book of experiences like these, but you get the idea… “It might feel like we have gone backwards, since people like Trump have got away with making comments against women, but we are making progress – we have more rights than we did ten years ago. But we need to pay more attention to our language. Not one of us who might consider ourselves a strong advocate for women can say, hand on heart, we haven’t got it wrong sometimes.”

Stella Duffy OBE, writer, Women’s Equality Party founding member and Fun Palaces co-director

“I worked in an office where a few of us had recently become mothers. Every morning, our male boss would enter the office and greet us with the same words: ‘Good morning, Mummy Corner!’ Several male colleagues had recently become fathers, but they were never addressed

“I get incensed when male drivers think it’s OK to hurl abuse at me when I’m behind the wheel. ‘They wouldn’t dare say that to my husband!’ I often think, and start ranting about it in front of my young daughter. But I worry she will pick up on my frustration and become wary of other men.”

“It is not just men who are guilty of stereotyping women. Women wanting to be seen as sexy, feminine or at home with their children can be portrayed as ‘anti-feminist’. But feminism is about having the same freedom of choice as men. Women need to be more supportive of each other.”

in this way.”

“Most retro-sexism coming out in the classroom and at university (eg, comments about girls getting back in the kitchen) is cloaked under the veil of ‘banter’. But in reality, it’s used to silence girls, intimidate them, and to suggest they don’t belong in male-dominated arenas. I hear things like, ‘Rape is a compliment, really,’ while ‘Women deserve equal rights… and lefts’ memes get thousands of social media likes. It’s worrying, as what is ingrained at school often becomes normalised and hard to disrupt later. The best way to challenge all this is compulsory sex and relationships education. We must continue to call on the government to make this happen. But we all play a part in disrupting sexist norms by reacting when we hear them.” Laura Bates, 30,

“When I picked up some curtain poles from a vendor I found online, the man asked if there was ‘anyone at home to help put them up’. I replied that it would be me, as my then husband was clueless when it came to DIY. His jaw practically hit the floor.”

Jacqueline, 37, stay-at-home mum “A builder recently called me ‘emotional’ when I calmly asked him why our house project was running three months behind because of his incompetence. ‘Am I crying, shouting or hysterical?’ I asked. He admitted I wasn’t. ‘OK,’ I replied, ‘so I fail to see how I’m being emotional.’”

Deborah, 26, journalist “When I was nominated for an award after setting up a website last year, one male judge said, ‘It’s a pity you’ve fallen pregnant, just when it’s all taking off.’ I replied: ‘Oh, I’ll still be running it.’ He stared at me in confusion, as if it were impossible for a woman to be expecting a baby and using her brain at the same time.”

“As a black woman, I have also experienced ‘misogynoir’, or being singled out for my skin colour as well as being a woman.

I’ve chosen Ellen because I find her positivity and outlook so uplifting. She is warm and welcoming and her work excludes no one. She has an incredible way of making her audience feel like they are friends hanging out, and that’s not easy to do. She’s a true role model – the world would be a better place with a few more Ellens out there.

Last year, I took part in the Virgin Strive Challenge with my daughter, Holly, and it was the toughest mental and physical challenge of our lives. We travelled from the Matterhorn in the Alps to the summit of Mount Etna, cycling, swimming and hiking in gruelling conditions. We were determined to succeed and raise much-needed funds for Big Change – a charity set up by my children, Holly and Sam – which helps young people thrive in life. Holly was by my side throughout and never ceased to amaze me. Not only was she taking part but also travelling with her two children, Etta and Artie. Every day, when the teams got to base, she would make sure she fitted in the bedtime routine – baths, cuddles, stories – before rushing back for a briefing for the next day’s challenge. As a strong, courageous female leader and mum, she really is an inspiration. She has so many of the traits I’ve always admired in my mother, Eve. Holly is definitely a chip off the old block!

Reportedly dwelling in the luxury of our familial mansions, chronicling arm-length memories of our own faces while steadily morphing into Kardashians, we experience emotions so superficial they are fully conveyed by yellow circles with eyes, and our thoughts haven’t exceeded 140 characters in years. Look past the filtered profile picture and hashtag compulsion, and we millennials have more options available to us than any generation before, and with them, far more challenges. But forget the bad rep, it’s time to celebrate our quirks and conventions. Here, four writers remind us why we should be #hella proud to be millennials...

DATING, SEX & MODERN LOVE BY JO HOARE

Dear world, MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS ABOUT OUR SEX LIFE, PLEASE. We could be doing it so much our downstairs neighbour’s ceiling is buckling, or so little our own downstairs ceiling (yep, that’s a euphemism) is in hibernation, but here’s the thing: it’s our choice. And as for what type of sex that is, if we’re enjoying ourselves then we couldn’t give a toss (pun intended). No matter how niche our desire, there’s a dating app for it. Beards, uniforms, bacon fans… simply add www in front of our heart’s desire, and we’ll probably get lucky.

Uber is our modern-day pumpkin carriage, whether it’s escaping from a baaad date or saving us from the walk of shame. Marry the boy you met in maths class aged ten, or treat Tinder as a game (the one who dates the most, wins) – we’re the generation with the least pressure to follow one type of ‘happy ending’. And yes, marriage numbers are down, but that’s because we’re sensible enough to realise that maybe 20K could be spent on something better than a fancy dinner for 100 people we normally wouldn’t treat to a round. Love is still around, we just don’t need a huge wedding to prove it. We’re porn savvy. As in, we know to skip past the actress pretending to take orgasmic delight in having her labia stretched like chewing gum, and we’ve learnt to use ‘private browsing’ if our housemate tends to borrow our iPad.

And we’re body positive. Knowing that if we don’t care what our bodies look like naked, then nor do those lucky enough to see it. Dismissive doctor fobbing off our contraceptive worries? Boyfriend claiming the ‘Cincinatti bow tie’ is an especially pleasurable sex act? If we don’t know something about sex, we’ll educate ourselves online in seconds. We know it’s good to talk. Or text, WhatsApp, DM, message, email. Constant communication makes it easy to drop a question about anything from spanking to STIs into a casual group chat.

Everyone, at some point, has considered moving in with a boyfriend/girlfriend we probably don’t love just so we can split the cost of a one-bed flat. On Mother’s Day, we all dig out that photo of Mum looking beautiful in her twenties for a retro Insta-post. Cue the comment: “OMG! She could be your twin #babes.” We all follow the same Pinterest boards, so we all have velvet cushions, fake marble and copper home accessories, succulents, cacti, rip-off Beni Ourain Moroccan rugs, monogram mugs and Ikea PAX wardrobes.

We know every pro and con of our flatmates, because we have to live with them until we earn enough to live on our own, which will be the year 2084. Pro: someone to watch The Great British Bake Off with. Con: the phrase, “I’m just letting it soak” about a used baking dish that’s filled with cold water and been sitting on the kitchen counter for SIX days. We know who our Facebook friends are.

What makes us happy? Experiences, not stuff. Millennials value where we’ve been much more than what we own. FOMO is our biggest enemy and greatest motivation. We’ve heard about the fun everyone else is having – or worse, we haven’t heard about it,

We use our friends as therapists. Tyler knows pretty much everything about me already. Real psychiatrists are way too expensive. The biggest shock as we approach our late twenties is watching our metabolisms slow down. At uni, I ate like an Olympic swimmer and burned it off by stressing about exams and girls. Now, I regularly head to a gym that smells like the inside of a sock and pull metal until I’ve alleviated all my muffin guilt. We actually have long attention spans.

Which is exactly where I’m writing this list. Not that working is an inconvenience to my holiday – we’re the first generation who’d “prefer unemployment to a job we hate”, opting instead to weave professional and personal lives into one enjoyable experience. This, of course, was a luxury largely unafforded to our parents who, by our age, were imprisoned by relentlessly routine jobs, shackled by mortgages and car payments, and parenting at least two children. Makes you wonder where the unfair stereotypes and deep-seated resentments stem from…

THE MOMENT THAT MADE ME

“My mother’s accident forced me to be brave” by CLOVER STROUD

Sitting near the back of the class, head down as I worked through the history questions in my exercise book, November 25, 1991, felt just like any other day.

herself properly, and was doubly incontinent and epileptic. The woman she had been – so full of love that she’d share with everyone she met, not least all her five children – had gone. I visited her regularly in the nursing home, but I was forced to come to terms with the reality of a mother who no longer knew who I was. The secure cradle of home was shattered, and my family splintered. I got into university, marrying straight after and having two children in my twenties, but by the age of 28, I was a single mother, longing for the mum I’d lost. I often woke with a pounding heart, terrified by what the day would bring. It was only the presence of my two young children, who needed me just as much as I’d needed my mother, that forced me to keep going. And my life moved forward: I got married again in my late thirties and had another beautiful child. Mum lived in a state of half-life, half-death until she passed away three years ago. But for all the pain her accident represents, it also made me the resilient woman I am today. I still cannot separate myself from the trauma it brought, but the experience forced me to be brave. Yes, I have scars, but I’m proud of them. They mean I understand real empathy, and that all of us have hurt just below the surface of a well-organised life. They also represent how far I’ve come, and are a reminder that nothing in life really scares me any more. Mum might have been taken from me violently, but time has helped me understand that she never really left. I’m bound to her through the monumental love she showed me as a child – it’s the same love I pass on to my children, too.

Then, our headmaster walked in and a boy behind me said, “Someone’s in trouble if Sir’s here.” ‘It wouldn’t be me,’ I remember thinking as I carried on writing: I was 16, and had university firmly in my sights. But then my name was called, and when I looked up, he didn’t seem angry – he was concerned. My sister was waiting for me outside the classroom. “Mum has fallen off her horse,” she told me, her face tear-stained. “But she’s going to be OK?” I asked, imagining a broken leg. My sister didn’t know. Panic flooded my body and I had to lean against the wall to steady myself. I wanted to step back into a normal morning, when I was making toast and Mum was getting ready to go riding – something she did almost every day, and loved with a passion. I thought back to her dropping me off at the school gates and me saying, as I always did, “I love you,” and Mum replying, “I love you more.” Dad rushed us all to the hospital and we sat outside intensive care until a surgeon guided us into a room reserved for the families of critical patients. He told us Mum had suffered a catastrophic blow to the head, and had been left severely brain-damaged. Until that moment, I had been innocent to life’s cruelty. But I had to reach deep inside to find a special sort of courage, just to get through that night, and the many nights of darkness that followed. Mum was in a coma for several months, and when she woke up, she was damaged Clover with her mum, 1982 beyond recognition. She couldn’t walk or feed 64

LIFE & HAPPINESS

Dawn O’Porter Honestly

“Happiness? I finally figured it out”

Y

es. I used to say that to everything. “Load me up, I’ll work for nothing, just shower me with experience and I’ll sleep when I’m dead.” I’d take on way too much in my quest to achieve, achieve, achieve – and “keep it simple” was the one piece of advice I never wanted to hear. Simple always seemed so boring, so safe, so unambitious. Now, keeping things simple is my daily goal. I’m more focused on my happiness than I am on my success and, oddly, that seems to have made me the most successful I’ve ever been. That’s because, for me, success no longer centres around how much I have going on, how much I earn, how many things I have or how many people know my name – it’s more about how I feel during my downtime. Being able to stop working and analysing, and to switch off, is crucial for our happiness. Lately, after dropping some projects that were taking over my life, I’ve realised that when I get home after a long day and put on the TV, I think about nothing but what I am watching. I know that might not sound like a massive deal, but for me it is. I have been stressed for most of my adult life. I’ve overloaded myself to the point of mania, and for what? With the hope of being rich, yes. Because I wanted to be known, yup. Because I’ve lived most of my life with a fear of running out of time, absolutely. (I lost a parent when I was a kid – FOMO is a big side effect of that.) I guess I’ve always felt like I have something to prove – that I wasn’t held back by growing up on a small island 68

(Guernsey, FYI); that my mother’s death didn’t break me; that as a woman I can say and get and do whatever I want. But now the one thing I actually want to prove to myself is that I know how to switch off, and chill the hell out. Five years ago, I didn’t think my brain had that function. But now I’m getting good at it, and gently shaving off work, social engagements – even friends – to have a simpler life has helped. I always get asked what advice I’d give my younger self, and I don’t like telling young women how they should behave because my mistakes have made me worldly and strong. But I think I have it now: assess yourself in the downtime. So yes, take on the world, shower yourself with challenges and experience. Be stressed, feel the shoulder-crushing anxiety of the need to succeed. But when you get home after that long day, throw your keys down, take off your coat, spread yourself across the sofa – and ask yourself if you feel happy then? Because that’s the bit that matters. It’s taken me to the age of 38 to realise that if something in life is getting in the way of that, maybe it’s time to change it. It’s pretty simple, really.

here’s an Instagram account with more followers than Hillary Clinton, Salma Hayek and Tom Ford. What does it have that a global politician, actress and fashion designer don’t? Pictures of couples. Couples kissing while horse riding. Couples making out on a beach without a care for getting a sandy gusset. Couples in sync, loving each other’s filters off, from the mattress to the mountaintop. It’s called @couplegoals, and 4.3 million people idolise what they see. But behind the camera, this is what I know. Even getting my partner to take a shot for Instagram involves huffing – “This is a waste of time” (him), “Darling, no one looks at the camera any more” (me) – and one soft-focused, cockeyed shot that goes to Recently Deleted faster than you can hit Unfollow.

So, if having different lives and interests can’t be that bad, why do so many people think it is?

someone spontaneous. “Each partner (consciously or unconsciously) hopes some of the other’s style will rub off. We’re driven towards novelty and learning from others,” Dr Fraenkel confirms. But at some point we stop celebrating our mismatch. The good news is that it’s likely unrelated to him discovering you sleep in a Justin Bieber T-shirt when he’s not around. “Our brains have a lot to do with it,” says Peter Saddington, a Relate counsellor and therapist. “When we first meet, the brain releases chemicals that make us bond, so there’s an infatuation. You’re really into it,” he explains. “After a while, chemicals are no longer produced in the same way, and you notice the other person for their warts-and-all detail.” Which is exactly when their laissez-faire attitude to washing-up suddenly shifts from being chill to giving you chills. It’s at this point that we start looking at other couples’ experiences. “‘Perfection’ is the trait that’s in everything these days; that’s what we’re encouraged to strive for. If you see enough of it [on Instagram], you think, ‘Maybe I can identify with these well-known people and emulate it,’” says Saddington.

A MODERN BACKLASH?

Spice Girls got hung up on. Today, “Social media’s flood of images of couples in perfect synchrony leads real-life couples to pathologize themselves for having differences,” he adds.

WE LOVE AN OPPOSITE The irony is that being out of sync is often what first attracts us. Not so much your clashing views on Game Of Thrones, but, as Dr Fraenkel coins it, how you “inhabit time”. It’s why an on-thego person finds a slow-paced partner calming; someone who’s always late admires punctuality; a planner, who saves money and schedules social occasions well in advance, gets a thrill from

Is it the way we date now that makes us cling, almost nostalgically, to these social-media images of synced ‘perfection’?

When I met my partner – a half-Swedish, half-Spanish management consultant who worked in Germany – online, it took us three weeks to find a window for date two. Saddington agrees that “differences are growing more noticeable”. But, above our app-based meeting culture, he blames work. “The reality is, unless you work a lot of hours, you might not be able to manage [financially]. Stress has increased. Being able to go to bed on time and relax is much more difficult.” Once tense and over-tired, factoring in any difference outside your own schedule (eg their suggestion of a spontaneous late-night cinema trip when you want to 73

is no one-size-fits-all approach. Healthy couples can figure out the sleeping strategy that works for them.”

MAKING IT WORK IRL

Eleanor, a 27-year-old web developer, believes that regularly sleeping apart improves her relationship. “I’m a light sleeper, my boyfriend snores like a revving engine, so anywhere from one to four nights a week, one of us takes the sofa. He goes if he’s been drinking, I go if I’m fidgety,” she explains. “Our relationship is 100 times better when we’re well rested but sleeping apart, rather than together but wide awake.” What I’m learning is that it’s not so much a couple’s differences that matter, but their attitude to those differences. Dating coach Evan Marc Katz sums it up perfectly: “If you like running, and I don’t, we can be perfectly happy together – as long as you don’t judge me for not running and I don’t try to stop you running.” And running is substitutable for everything from ‘eating meat’ to ‘already being on Season Two of Narcos’. “My boyfriend and I are opposites in many ways,” says Deidra, 32, an occupational therapist. “I’m energetic, he’s mellow and laid-back. But it balances us out. If you’re too similar, you end up with the same weak points. He’s like my perfect counterweight.” I like this idea of counterweights. Two people on a tipping scale of highs and lows, both giving and taking to get the balance right. That #CoupleGoals selfie might show what a relationship looks like when the timing is right for one second. Away from the camera, unseen, is all the great stuff that’s achieved when the timing is not. The underpinning message “is that difference, out-of-synchronisation, is healthy,” reaffirms Saddington. “I would never have predicted my boyfriend and I would last,” says sales manager Ruth, 30. “We have almost no common interests. We have opposite personalities. We have very different schedules. Everything screams, ‘They’ll never make it.’ But, you know, it works. Four years in, there’s something about the way we think and interact that’s not similar, it’s… complementary.” So maybe it’s no longer about striving for ‘two become one’, but instead celebrating ‘one becoming two’.

A quick-fire resolution guide for when opposites attack MY WAY vs YOUR WAY Crux It’s saying, “I’m right, you’re wrong.” Cure Negotiation. “You’d like something done a certain way (eg chores) – likely the way it was done when you grew up – but you both have to relax your stance,” says Saddington. “Ignore the issue and you never get to a point where you’re both happy. Explain why it’s important to you, decide on a compromise and, over time, it might stick.”

PHONE ADDICT vs OFF-LINER Crux Phones can feel like there’s an affair, with the tech addict prioritising talking to people online over talking to you. Cure Boundaries. “Say, ‘I’m unhappy because you’re doing that and it makes me feel this,’” says Saddington. “Often, talking resolves the issue, which might be, ‘I could lose my job, so need to look for options,’ or, ‘A friend’s having a tough time, I didn’t realise it was taking over.’”

be curled up by 10pm) can feel irritating – not intriguing. So, recognising that the spark for our initial sexual attraction can also be its undoing (classic FML, right?), therapists are now working to make the ‘opposites attract’ philosophy succeed in the long term. It’s the cornerstone of Dr Fraenkel’s ‘Four Rs’ method, which helps couples whose once-attractive mis-sync has tipped into sinking. It’s when different work schedules mean they never, ever share a meal, for instance, or the forward-thinker now finds the relaxed one unbearably flaky. The process covers the steps of: 1) Reveal – where you both air your differences, 2) Revalue – think back to what attracted you in the first place (it’s likely that the characteristic from step 1 will feature as a good thing), 3) Revise – suggest mini-tweaks to amend timings, and 4) Rehearse – do them. “Small changes in schedules – a shift in when you start or finish work, making a point to get up together for at least a few minutes of hugging or conversation – can provide regular connection. Meet in the middle and have sex in the afternoon,” he suggests. It might sound unromantic, but as someone whose partner has a three-hour daily commute, a Saturday-afternoon quickie can be the difference between amazing sex and no sex. Even that other much-maligned mis-sync – the Netflixbingeing night owl vs the cheerful-at-6am early riser – doesn’t have to be a deal-breaker. Sleep researcher Dr Wendy Troxel, senior behavioural and social scientist at the RAND Corporation, found that unless one person has an extreme sleep pattern, such as not feeling tired until 3am, most couples can outsmart their circadian rhythms. “Gradually shifting one’s schedule to be more aligned with the bed partner (eg the night owl coming to bed 15 minutes earlier a night) is the best strategy,” she explains, though she thinks we’re too hung up on there being only one model for bedtime. “There are many beliefs about the importance of the ‘marital bed’, and many worry about the stigma associated with sleeping apart, but there


DATING & RELATIONSHIPS

DATING BLOW-OFFS ( that actually happened) Forget ghosting, it’s all about sucking it up and being honest with our dates. Well, maybe not this honest… The pooch pamperer

The flat-pack fail “On our first date, I got so drunk I fell off my stool. The next day, he WhatsApped saying he’d had a great time and asked me out again. I sort of (definitely) judged him for wanting to see me after being so drunk. I replied saying, ‘Sorry, I can’t see anyone right now, I’ve got far too much Ikea furniture to build.’ I mean, I HAD just moved house, so it wasn’t a lie. ‘Never heard that one before,’ he replied.” Jo, 26

The memory lapse “We met up for dinner, and I thought it went really well, so I texted him a few days later asking for a second date. His response was unexpected. He replied asking who I was – he’d been ‘stung by a mosquito and couldn’t remember anything’. Top marks for creativity.” Charlotte, 26

The shifty chef “On my last date, it was clear we had zero chemistry. Halfway through, I said I had to go as I needed to do some food shopping. Only as I got on the bus did I realise how pathetic that was. But let’s face it, A) No one 76

has time for ‘meh’ dates, and B) Cooking is lots more fun than chatting to someone you have f**k all in common with.” Kat, 34

The revenge meet “My date seemed fun at first, but the more we drank, the more he made homophobic comments – about his colleagues, celebs, even a couple near us. I didn’t react at first, but agreed to a second date (bear with). I said there was a cool bar we should go to, and he agreed. It was about 15 minutes into the date before he realised it was a gay bar. His jaw hit the floor! And he didn’t stay long after my gay best mate turned up minutes later to join us. See ya!” Zara, 30

The family dinner “There was nothing wrong with him – he was perfectly decent – I just wasn’t feeling it, so what was the point dragging it out? At the time, I thought I’d made a great excuse. In hindsight, not so much. I said my mum had just texted to say there was a lamb dinner for me at home and I had to go. He was surprisingly OK, considering we were out for dinner.” Emma, 24

Start your message by thanking them – for taking the time to meet, for example. This will keep the tone gentle and polite. Explain why you as a couple won’t work, without putting all the reasons on them. Keep it unequivocal, but sensitive. Maybe your timetables are incompatible or you’re too busy to commit right now. End by wishing them the best – it’s polite and will ensure they don’t feel victimised. But avoid emojis and kisses as these can give false hope. If they reply, remember the less you engage, the more they’ll get the message. If you respond, keep it short and polite. Then move on.

Do you know your work W rights?

e’re so busy cracking on with our careers that most of us don’t stop to consider what we’re actually entitled to in the workplace. In fact, a recent poll reveals that 80% of Glamour readers don’t know their employment rights. Time for a refresh. With flexi-working on the rise, and equal pay on everyone’s radar (including the government’s), these are the rights that could make a difference.

78


WORK & MONEY

You have the right to: Ask. Every employee has the right to request flexible working hours, though not everyone is eligible. “You need to have been there for 26 weeks,” says career coach Michelle Minnikin. “But your employer can say no because of, say, a lack of additional staff.” But over half of UK organisations could soon adopt flexi-hours, so employers might be wising up. Your first step: “Check whether your company has a flexible-working policy – some even offer one day off a month for hobbies,” says Michelle. “If not, negotiate. Stress the advantages: you’ll be happier and more committed, for example.” It happened to me: When Rachel, 25, wanted to start a part-time course in psychotherapy, she asked her boss at a marketing company to change her hours. He eventually agreed, and reorganised her workload so she could take Tuesdays off for college. “I’m glad he listened,” says Rachel, “otherwise I’d have thought about finding a new job that did let me take that time for me.” Check out: nidirect.gov.uk for information on your flexible-working application.

£7.20 The hourly National Living Wage rate for those 25+ – increasing to £7.50 in April. For those 21-24, the National Minimum Wage is £6.95.

“I’M PAID LESS THAN MY MALE COLLEAGUE – WHAT CAN I DO?” You have the right to: Challenge it. In April, employers with more than 250 staff will have to publish their pay gap by law. “Make sure your organisation follows reporting requirements, and question them if not,” says Jemima Olchawski, head of policy and insight at The Fawcett Society. And remember that it’s illegal to pay women less than men for doing the same job, or for work that involves comparable skills or responsibility. Your first step: “Don’t be afraid to ask male colleagues what they’re paid,” says Jemima. “It’s against the law to prevent employees from discussing pay to establish whether it’s fair.” It happened to us: More than 200 female classroom assistants in Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland, argued that their work was of the same value as male manual workers, who were being paid more. Many have now been compensated. Check out: supportequalpay. co.uk for a step-by-step guide on what to do if you have a case.

You have the right to: Be protected. A third of us have been bullied at work, and your employer is responsible for preventing it. If you think you’re being targeted because of your ‘protected characteristics’ – such as age, disability, race, religion, sex or sexual orientation – you can make a harassment complaint. Your first step: “Tell your manager or HR,” says Emma Wilkinson, senior employment expert at Citizens Advice. “If they can’t help, you may be able to escalate it to a tribunal or other legal action. Keep a record of incidents – what was said/done, dates, times, locations and witnesses – to use as evidence for your complaint,” says Emma. It happened to me: “My manager would whisper, then look at me and laugh,” recalls 27-year-old social worker Megan. “She’d ask, loudly, how many calories were in my lunch, once telling me to ‘waddle over’ to her desk. She said it was ‘banter’.” Sadly, Megan felt compelled to leave that job. “Looking back, I wish I’d told someone.” Check out: citizensadvice. org.uk for information on escalating your case.

5.6 The number of weeks’ holiday full-time workers are entitled to per year.

48 The maximum number of hours you can legally be expected to work per week (often averaged over 17 weeks).

“I’VE BEEN UNFAIRLY DISMISSED. NOW WHAT?” You have the right to: Make a claim. That is, if you’ve been let go because of a ‘protected characteristic’ (see left). That’s discrimination and is illegal. You can claim discrimination no matter how long you’ve worked somewhere. Your first step: “We always advise appealing in writing to an employer as a first step,” says Michele Piertney, senior advisor with workplace advice service Acas. “If it’s a case of discrimination, you do have redress to an employment tribunal, but most people see that as a last resort.” It happened to me: Last summer, Lisa, a 33-year-old software salesperson, was sacked for being late four times. But she was pregnant, and her lateness was due to morning sickness. “It was humiliating to be accused of slacking when actually I just felt terrible,” she says. HR quickly recognised a potential case of discrimination and reinstated Lisa’s job. Check out: acas.org.uk, or ring the Acas helpline on 0300 123 1100, if you’re unhappy with the response from your employer. O

“RELIGION IS MY THERAPY” We’re the least religious generation yet, but for these four women, life would be very different without the help of their faith by JULIE McCAFFREY

“Islam helped me overcome an eating disorder” Mahrukh Shaukat, 22, is a project leader from Glasgow

Y

es, it’s the one subject guaranteed to spark strong opinions. But what if we told you that religion has the power to help people overcome depression? We thought you’d have something to say about that. According to new research by Theos, the UK’s leading religion and society think tank, faith can have a positive impact on our mental health, as it “gives us a sense of being loved and valued”, explains research director Nick Spencer. But should tackling mental health issues be left to the medical professionals? “In most cases, yes,” says psychotherapist Marisa Peer. “That said, religion can help tranquillise our inner critic, which often leads to depression. When someone has depression, they often use harsh words about themselves – perhaps they feel they’re not smart, wealthy, attractive or successful enough. Religion shoots that down by telling us we are unique, special, appreciated and here for a reason.” So, is talking to a priest any different from chatting with a therapist? And if it makes you feel better, does it matter where you get help from? Before you judge, we spoke to four women about the impact their faith has had on their mental health…

At 18, while studying for my A-levels in Saudi Arabia, I was consuming just 800 calories a day. I had shrunk from over 8st to under 7st within a few months, felt weak from walking and was fixated on controlling my minuscule intake. Around nine months later, after my first two semesters at Leeds University, I realised my fixation was controlling me, and I became desperate for help. Religion was a major part of my family life, and I’d been brought up to pray five times a day. But because I hadn’t been focusing on it, my words and rituals were empty. Back home in Saudi Arabia during a half-term uni break, that changed. I was sitting alone on my prayer mat when I decided to say an extra prayer to God. I asked for help to have my worries eased and to be released from the tightness of control. I vividly remember collapsing into myself, bursting into tears and rocking back and forth. In that moment, I realised I couldn’t control everything. I had to let go. Mum was passing my room and came in to kneel beside me. When she put her arms around me, I sobbed uncontrollably. As I wept, I felt God was looking after me. I had all the tools I needed to live a happy life – he’d given me that – and he always had a plan for me. I felt a comforting wave of hope that I could get better. I felt a power – a will from within – to try and recover from my illness. I started sharing my feelings with Mum, who was very understanding, and with time and patience, I began eating more. It was difficult to shout down the controlling voice in my head, but I knew God wanted me to listen to him instead. Slowly, I reached a healthy weight, my energy returned and my mood lifted. My job as schools’ project leader for the Muslim Women’s Resource Centre involves teaching kids the core beliefs of Islam and separating religion from extremism. I also remind them how God gives us the ability to conquer problems within ourselves. I believe that’s what he did for me. My religion has brought me such inner strength and peace.

“Depression left me suicidal, but Christianity gave me hope” Katharine Welby-Roberts, 30, is a writer from London

“Judaism helped me cope with profound grief” Emma Freedman, 25, is a mental health awareness coordinator from London I struggled with a deep sense of loss when my grandmother died nine years ago. I was 16, and even weeks after she passed, I knew I wasn’t processing grief like the rest of my family. I felt numb and became detached from everything that was important to me – my schoolwork; friends; family. Mum said the spark in my eyes had gone, but because I didn’t understand bereavement, I couldn’t explain my feelings. One Friday night during that confusing isolation, I went to my synagogue. It was always a beautiful service and something in the singing of the words and prayers made me feel deeply comforted – and connected. It reached into the very core of my spirit and stopped me feeling so alone. Judaism has a strong focus on family, kindness and helping other people. I’d drifted away from that, but once I started opening up, the Jewish community became my caring network. I realised I was surrounded by families who knew my grandmother – they had an open-door policy and told me they’d always be there if I wanted to talk, but would never force me. I can’t define a single moment when I felt better, but being looked after by those who I shared family and faith with helped my healing. Knowing I was part of something bigger – a religion with a rich history – also made me feel less isolated; it tethered me when I felt adrift. Specific Jewish beliefs were important, too. Faith in the afterlife was a great comfort, and has been ever since. I believe loved ones who pass are with me in spirit. During the Shabbat (which starts a few minutes before sunset on a Friday until the appearance of three stars on a Saturday night), my family and I turn off all tech and focus on engaging face-to-face. It helps me manage stress and prioritise family values. Even when it came to choosing a career, my religious values guided me to work for Jami, a mental health service for the Jewish community. Whatever I’m going through in life or whenever I need support, I know Judaism will be my safety net.

My dad is the Archbishop of Canterbury, so I grew up with the Church of England. My parents haven’t had an easy life. Their first-born child died in a car crash when she was only six months old. But I was brought up to believe God remains faithful and present when you are hurting – something I clung to four years ago when I had a nervous breakdown. I’d first felt the onset of depression at school, when I began disappearing into my own world and disengaging from other people. By 27, I felt suicidal and suffered a complete collapse of my emotional senses. There were many reasons – I was unhappy in my job as a police officer, my family lived miles away in Durham, and I was lonely. When my boyfriend ended our relationship, it wasn’t the cause, but the final trigger that made me feel as if everything was falling apart. My doctor signed me off work, and during those five months, I realised the true value of my faith. When I felt utterly lost, God became my anchor. In the Bible, the psalms explain how much he loves us – and has done even before we were born. That feeling of being unconditionally loved by someone who knew me better than I knew myself helped me see that I was worthy; that I had a purpose; that I had something to live for. Gradually, over the next year, I climbed out of the dark pit that had consumed me, and felt God was right there, pushing me on. I still suffer with depression but I’m more stable. I’m lucky to have a wonderful, supportive family – I got married three years ago and have a five-month-old son. They have lifted me, but I also know that when I do feel low, going to church or reading the Bible will give me the strength I need to get through it.

“Buddhism calms my anxiety” Sophie Dishman, 22, is a journalism student from Northumberland Three years ago, a college lecture on HIV was meant to mark the start of a research project. But for me, it caused an onslaught of mental health problems. I was so convinced I had it that I got tested. The results were negative, but my anxiety escalated. I began suffering with agoraphobia, feeling too terrified to leave my bedroom, and developed obsessive-compulsive disorder. I couldn’t touch anything, especially door handles, for fear of contamination. I confided in a couple of friends. They were Buddhists and gave me advice based on what they had learnt in their faith. It wasn’t preachy, just things that ignited lots of questions about their beliefs. When I was 14, I’d attended a Christian youth club for a few years, but as I got older, I grew distant from religion. When I was told about the morality of Buddhism, I became intrigued, and the more I Googled the faith, the more it resonated. I didn’t need to go anywhere special to become a Buddhist, so I began following the way of life by making myself more aware of my thoughts. The meditative aspect has really helped me focus and calm my anxiety. When my mind is racing, I lie down, close my eyes

and visualise a motorway. Cars are flashing past and I imagine each one has an anxious thought disappearing into the horizon. I don’t attach any meaning to them, I just let them go by. I still have anxiety problems – trigger words like ‘cancer’ send a wave of worry through me – but I know which mindful practices to call on in those moments, and I’m no longer agoraphobic. Recently, I arranged to interview someone for a uni assignment, but I approached the wrong person. In the past, that would have made me anxious for the rest of the day, but I drew on my Buddhist teachings, which tell me suffering is impermanent, focused on the next task and moved on from the slip-up. For me, Buddhism has given me coping mechanisms to deal with bad days, and it’s taught me that those bad days don’t last. It’s far more than a religion – it’s a way of life. I consider myself a Buddhist, but to cement myself in the faith, I’m planning to increase my study of the dhamma, one of the Three Jewels – the three cornerstones of the faith.

THE CHOICE IS YOURS

“Gradually, over the next year, I climbed out of the dark pit that had consumed me, and felt God was right there, pushing me on”

Religion isn’t for everyone, and in severe cases of depression or an eating disorder, professional help is vital. But the key message here, according to Peer, is that these women believed their tough times would pass. “Faith also means to have hope – I’ve seen that can really work to ease mental health problems. You might turn to counselling, support groups, medication or a God for help, but it’s the having ‘faith’ in yourself part that matters.” O

C ut or C OLOUR… …which comes first? There’s a right order, and here’s why

118

IT MAY NOT BE SOMETHING YOU OFTEN THINK ABOUT, but the order in which you cut and colour your hair can have a huge effect on your finished style. “Colour will enhance a cut in every way. It can make hair look thicker while also adding precision and dimension,” says hairstylist Adam Reed. “As a rule, you should always cut before you colour, to ensure your shape shows your hair in the best way possible,” says hairstylist Josh Wood. Also, think about it, no shade looks good with split ends. Accentuating your hue can also alter the weight of your hairstyle or, even better, you can fake it to the hair you’ve always wanted. “A toner will add dimension that will even out the balance of your hair, which can make it look thicker or finer depending on your desired finish,” explains Adam. Forget a magic wand – it’s all about magic colouring.

BLONDE + LONG ”If your hair is in good condition, a monotone long hairstyle can look amazing,” says Josh.

REDHEAD + ONE LENGTH ”Solid colours and one-length haircuts work well together. A precise bob or shoulder-length haircut looks great,” says Jonathan.

BRUNETTE + LAYERED “If you have balayage or ombre-coloured hair, opt for a layered and more choppy style,” says hairstylist Jonathan Long.

1 Do your research. Envision the overall style you want and take as many pictures as possible to your stylist. 2 Pre-wash it. Don’t shampoo on the day – dirtier hair allows for better highlighting. 3 Know your shape. Work with your hairstylist to figure out what colour will show off your lengths best. 4 Show your hair some love. It will look great when you leave the salon, but all colour needs TLC in between treatments, so aim to enhance it with a weekly mask. 5 Maintain it. Most stylists recommend touching up your roots or colouring every six to eight weeks to ensure your hair always looks A-list-worthy.

It’s our big beauty party! And you’re invited…

L

ast year, you came, you saw, you left in your thousands with beautiful hair, nails, make-up and a massive bag of freebies. In short, the first ever Glamour Beauty Festival was a runaway, smash-hit success. And so, together with our partners, Fiat, we are doing it all over again! If you missed out last time, now’s your chance to see what all the fuss was about. And if you were there, I can promise you it’s going to be even bigger and better this time round. What is the Glamour Beauty Festival? It’s the UK’s first and only beauty theme park. The suitably chic Saatchi Gallery in London becomes a Glamour world of brow bars, mani stations, skincare stops, make-up hubs, pop-up hair salons, lashperfecting zones and more. It’s a two-day extravaganza where every ticket holder enjoys treats, treatments, talks and all sorts of ‘only with Glamour’ experiences in one amazing weekend. Don’t make the mistake of thinking it’ll just be like wandering through any departmentstore beauty hall. Everyone has dedicated their space to giving you great things to do, try and take away. For instance, the Estée Edit area will host a massive, digitally driven interactive area, dedicated to giving your complexion a perfect finish. You can get a professional braid at the OGX Bar. Elizabeth Arden is opening a super-cool

‘Serum Booster Bar’. There’s a skincare workshop with Caudalie, a Mask Bar by Fresh… I don’t have the space to go on! But all the details you need are over the next 17 pages. When you’re not perfecting your gorgeous new looks, there’s tons of entertainment to keep you busy; amazing Q&A sessions with A-list celebrities; hands-on demonstrations from some of the world’s top hair and make-up artists; insight from beauty insiders on how to make your passion your career. And so. Much. More. Oh, did I forget to mention that every ticket holder will leave with an amazing goodie bag, worth over £120? I’m not kidding: you cannot afford to miss it. I will be there all weekend, as will the entire Glamour team, including the best Beauty Director in the business, Alessandra Steinherr. We can’t wait to give you this totally immersive Glamour experience, so do book your ticket as soon as you can! See you there.

PRESENT

Beyoncé’s glow

Queen B has it all down pat – the hair, the lips, the eyes: it’s all on point. But it’s her skin that’s got us all taking notes. And you can get the same glossy sheen with Flash Illuminator £22 The Estée Edit on the highest parts of your face.

’00s

Kate Moss’ smoky eye

After a decade spent as the catwalk’s ingénue, Kate came into her own in the Noughties. She rocked a smudged-up, smoky eye like no other for her own update on rock-chick chic. Do yours with Matte Highliner in (Earth)quake £19 Marc Jacobs Beauty.

’90s

Naomi Campbell’s silky skin

’80s

Brooke Shields’ mega brow

’70s

Jerry Hall’s glossy lip

’60s

Brigitte Bardot’s feline flick

’50s

Elizabeth Taylor’s red lip

Naomi had the satin-smooth skin of dreams from head to toe, rocking that candlelit glow up and down the runways of the world. The ’90s were big on ‘no make-up’ make-up, as we are today, and all you need is a sweep of Candleglow Sheer Perfecting Powder £32 Laura Mercier.

’90S ’80S

The original brow icon, Brooke had the kind of luscious, thick arch we’d all kill for. While your own brow shape should be personal to you, you can certainly fill in and strengthen the depth with Browtec £16 High Definition, drawing in the direction the hair naturally grows.

Jerry was every rock star’s pin-up, with the glossiest lips in Studio 54. Her shiny pout is big again this season, with a velvety twist, and it’s an easy one to pull off – simply slick on Velvet Lip Glide in Mineshaft £22 NARS Cosmetics.

Brigitte took the ’50s cat eye up a notch, lining her top and bottom lashlines with thick kohl. Get the look with Highliner in Blacquer £19 Marc Jacobs Beauty.

The ’50s were all about the red lip – and nobody wore it better than Elizabeth. Apply Audacious Lipstick in Rita £24 NARS Cosmetics straight from the bullet, blot, then apply again.

’60S The Fiat 500 through the years (plus the seriously chic new Riva, below)

THE CAR

60 years of style, 60 years of Fiat 500 In 1957, Fiat introduced one of the bestloved cars of all time. Fiat has since remained the iconic leader in the style stakes of the road, for 60 years. Nine years ago, the relaunched Fiat 500 earned cult status, winning style accolades and becoming Europe’s bestselling small car. People weren’t buying it to get them from A to B, but as the ultimate accessory. In fact, 80% of people bought it for the way it looked, and with 500,000 ways to personalise at launch, almost every 500 was unique. Fiat has collaborated with designers such as Gucci and Diesel, and now you can choose from 15 fashion-forward colours, 22 alloy wheel styles and 17 interior looks to customise, plus Apple CarPlay, 7” touchscreen, BeatsAudio system and parking sensors are available as optional accessories. Like all icons, the Fiat 500 is both a timeless classic and totally of the moment.

BR A I D l ik e a bo s s Make the most of shiny, happy hair with a braid that’s Insta-ready

N

ot only are braids the red-carpet mainstay that really get the cameras flashing, they’re also totally life-proof. From working out or working late, to pulling an all-nighter on the dancefloor, they are the chicest way to keep your hair looking fierce. And with a braid for every hair type, length and occasion, it’s definitely time to master them. What do all the best braids have in common? Happy hair. Because even if your plaiting skills are on point, it won’t impress if your hair isn’t healthy. So here are our top braids for this season and the easy cheats from OGX haircare to get them looking their best.

1 Wash your hair with the brand-new OGX Strength & Body + Bamboo Fiber-Full Shampoo and Conditioner £6.99* each. 2 Apply OGX Hydrate & Revive + Argan Oil Of Morocco Miracle In-Shower Oil £6.99* to detangle and define.

F E S T I VA L FRENCH

GO DUTCH

Rock what you’ve got with cool-girl plaits – the perfect look for a two-day festival. Split hair into a parting from front to back and French plait each section into two tracks. When you get to the nape, plait all the way down. Secure with bands.

This gorgeous halo look uses the Dutch technique – an inverted version of French braiding. Split the hair into three sections but plait under instead of over, then add in additional pieces of hair from under each section, and continue to the ends.

TOP TIP For day one, braid all the way; then on day two, release each of the braids at the nape for a more relaxed feel. KEY KIT Fight the frizz with OGX Hydrate + Defrizz Kukuí Oil Anti-Frizz Hydrating Oil £6.99* for weekend-lasting smoothness.

TOP TIP Start from the nape, so by the time you get to the front your braid is at its thickest. Gently pull apart for a fat finish. KEY KIT A spritz of OGX Weightless Hydration Coconut Water Weightless Hydration Oil £6.99* will add just the right amount of shine.

O G X at T H E G L A M O U R B E A U T Y F E S T I V A L Stop by the OGX Braid Bar and choose your own power plait from the menu. And if you follow OGX on Instagram (@ogxbeautyuk) – where you’ll find even more hairdo inspiration – they’ll give you a travel-size shampoo and conditioner. Win!

Mak e waves !

Look 3 CLASSIC CURLS If you’re after full-on curls, the ghd Curve Classic Curl Tong £120 is your best bet. “The Classic Curl Tong has a narrow barrel, so it forms perfect bouncy curls,” explains Adam. “Wrap small sections of hair around the tong, wrapping backwards away from the face so you get more root lift, and wrapping all the way down to the end of the tong, from root to tip.”

Choose the right tool for the job and catwalkworthy curls = all yours

C

urls and waves are a runway staple, and this season there were so many versions there’s inspiration aplenty for your own A-list hair moment. You just need the right tool to make an easy job of a pro style – and ensure the curls won’t drop before you do. So here’s the Glamour guide to gorgeous, healthy-looking ’dos that last around the clock.

Look 4 SOFT TWIST A polished but looser version of classic curls is easy to pull off with the ghd Curve Soft Curl Tong £120. “It has a wide barrel, so it forms perfect soft curls,” says Adam. “Wrap large sections of hair around the tong and then, as you pull the tong out gently, pull the hair downwards to loosen the curls as they cool and set.”

Look 1 O L D H O L LY W O O D You can’t go wrong with a glossy classic curl, full of Old Hollywood glamour. And it’s not as tricky as you’d think. You just need the ghd Curve Classic Wave Wand £120. “Wrap large sections of hair around the wand, all in the same direction,” says ghd global brand ambassador Adam Reed. “Once all hair has been tonged, spray hairspray onto a ghd paddle brush and brush it gently through the hair.”

Seriously happy hair at last year’s Glamour Beauty Festival

If curls aren’t your thing, the ghd Platinum Styler £165 is the tool for you. It’s helped poker-straight hair make a real comeback. And the best bit? It’s so easy to pull off, according to Adam. “Simply glide through the hair from root to tip. And you’re done. It gives incredible shine in just one stroke.”

For a cooler Alexa Chung vibe, go for the ghd Curve Creative Curl Wand £120. “For more dishevelled open waves, wrap smaller sections of hair around the wand and change the direction you wrap the hair, so the waves differ in direction,” says Adam. “Once all hair has been tonged, take each section at the end and shake it to open up the wave. Mist with hairspray to hold and add texture.”


T H E H O L I DAY S Pure cool, this is the collection for trendsetters – think beachhopping and endless summer nights. Havana Holiday £8.95 combines rose gold with intricate design, while Bora Bora Holiday £7.95 works the holographic trend.

THE ROMANTICS This collection is pretty but edgy. True Love £7.50 is a coffin shape in one of the biggest spring shades: lilac. French Kiss £7.95 has a rose-gold tip for a twist on the classic French mani.

Mani up! All the trends and no dry-time? We’re sold

THE NUDES These are sophisticated with a capital S. Porcelain Nude £7.50 – a firm favourite – is a beautiful, natural shape with a fierce matte texture, but there’s a nude for everyone within the collection, perfect for desk-to-date styling.

Prep for your PRESS-ONS Not only do press-ons look good, they feel better now, too. If you prep properly, they won’t damage your nails and will last for up to 14 days. Simply apply Nail Guards £2.95 Elegant Touch to your nail bed before press-ons. The fine film protects nails and anchors the press-ons. Plus, peel-off technology makes removal much easier.

P

ress-on nails have just made a major comeback. And here’s why: not only do they make the most complex nail art a doddle, but they also give you the option of trying S/S17’s on-trend shapes – from stiletto to coffin – no matter the length of your own nails, and without professional intervention. Which explains why they’re used backstage to get all the models’ nails looking fine after weeks of shows. And if you’ve been put off in the past by the potential damage posed to your natural nails, we can tell you it’s just not a problem any more – they’ve never been safer, so there’s never been a better time to start. Here are our favourite looks for S/S17, courtesy of three cool collections by Elegant Touch.

E L E G A N T T O U C H at T H E G L A M O U R B E A U T Y F E S T I V A L Hit the Elegant Touch nail bar and shop the S/S17 collection with an exclusive discount. Professional nail techs will be there to apply a selection of press-ons for free, or you could go for a set of Totally Bare nails and add your own polish or nail art afterwards. Either way, you’ll have luscious nails to show off. For tickets, go to glamourmagazine.co.uk/event/beaut y-festival

PREP YOUR LASHLINE “Use a pencil to colour in the roots of your lashes,” advises celebrity make-up artist Lee Pycroft. “It will conceal any join between the false and natural lashes, especially at the inner corner of the eyes where the natural lash thins out.”

SELECT YOUR LASHES “Eylure false lashes are a fast track to fuller lashes,” says Lee. Softer and more malleable, they’re the lashes for people who don’t like falsies! And there’s a pair to suit everyone. The Luxe Solitaire (c) is a lighter lash that's perfect for day, while the Luxe Bauble (b) really thickens up the lashline with a velvety finish. Luxe Trinket (d) is the longer-length set for a full-on flutter and, for newbies, Luxe Cameo (a) is a 3/4 lash, which gives a sleek almond shape to the eyes (£9.95 each).

fuller flutter makes for a great eye upgrade – it can widen the eyes, define the shape and take you from desk to date night in a flash. But it can be a tricky business: falsies can be fiddly and hard to fit, right? Well, with the insider tricks and the right set of lashes, it doesn’t have to be as hard as you think…

“Gently squeeze the false and natural lashes together to create an undetectable finish,” says Lee. “Apply another layer of mascara to any parts you’d like to emphasise.”

aura Mercier – queen of the no-make-up-make-up look – has created your complete complexion wardrobe. With their beautiful skin perfectors that match and complement one another, you have the ultimate underpinnings to any look and the secret to a flawless, luminous face.

By Grace Timothy. Photographs: iStock, Jason Lloyd-Evans

1 PREP: Apply Laura Mercier Foundation Primer £29 to create a perfectly smooth, even surface. This helps make-up glide on easily and last longer, so your look stays fresh and colour-true for hours. Then it’s time for foundation… but not as we know it. Laura Mercier Candleglow Soft Luminous Foundation £35 is so hydrating, it feels like a feather-light serum. It is sheer, but still provides a medium coverage, and its light-reflecting pigments give a luminous finish. It’s like setting your own candlelit filter wherever you go. LAURA’S TIP “Start at the outer portion of the face and work inwards towards the nose. Focus on one area at a time and be sure to blend well.”

2 SET: Brighten dark circles and conceal any discolouration with a few clicks of Laura Mercier Candleglow Concealer And Highlighter £25. Lighten the shadows around your nose and mouth, then set your make-up with Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder £29. LAURA’S TIP “For an instant refresher, pat a little product around the eye area or the cheekbones to eliminate dryness without disturbing your make-up.”

3 GLOW: Apply Laura Mercier Candleglow Concealer And Highlighter to add light to the browbone, cheekbones, temporal bone, Cupid’s bow and along the centre of the nose. Rather than creating a heavy mask of cover-up, it’ll bring a flash of light to every bit of your face. Finish with Laura Mercier Candleglow Sheer Perfecting Powder £32. It not only helps your flawless base last, but also blurs imperfections. LAURA’S TIP “Select one shade darker than your skin, then use a Laura Mercier Finishing Powder Brush [£34] to dust over your face.”

hether you’re a traditional-flick fan or after something more fashion-forward, there’s a liner style out there for you right now. And where better to find the most trend-driven statements for your eyes than the catwalk’s No1 style king, Marc Jacobs? Ever since the first Marc Jacobs Beauty collection launched last year, exclusively at John Lewis and Harrods, beauty editors have been buzzing about the amazing textures and colours – it’s already become a staple in our make-up bags. So we asked Marc Jacobs Beauty’s global make-up artist, Gilbert Soliz, to create four new liner looks for Glamour to rock this spring, using their new matte highliners*.

T he new NOW BRO W Recreate S/S17’s hottest trend: the textured brow

Y

ou can’t fail to notice how big brows have become. After decades of them getting thinner and thinner, we are living in the midst of brows’ biggest moment (quite literally): they’re more naturally full than ever. And this season, there’s one shape cropping up on the catwalks and red carpet: the textured brow is everything. The best starting point is an HD Brows treatment, combining waxing, threading, tinting and trimming to perfectly shape your brows, using a unique mapping system to ensure the most flattering shape for you. Once you’ve got your brows on fleek, it’s time to kit yourself out with some tools to keep them that way – so here are brow gurus High Definition to show you how to recreate this season’s top trend. “You want to keep the shape neat, but make it a little messy in the finish,” they explain. “Think about creating a skeleton (the shape of the brow) and then adding texture to build it up.”

+ +

HOW-TO: THE TEXTURED BROW

1

Create ‘the skeleton’ using powder from the Eye&Brow Palette £30 High Definition, applying with a fine angled brush. Remember: no hard lines – keep it nice and soft. Starting at the middle of the bulb (the front section), add hair-like strokes towards the tail with

2

the ultra-precise Browtec £19.50 High Definition, drawing in the direction the hair naturally grows. Now sit back and look: you can remove anything that’s out of place with a cotton bud. Don’t

3

overdo the front of the brow; keep it seethrough and sparse. Apply the Brow Colourfix £22 High Definition in a darker shade so the natural hairs stand out against your background colour.

4

TOP TIP Don’t forget: the arch and the bulb should look ‘undone’. Keep the shape neat but show the texture around the brow.

kin is anything but one-dimensional this spring. In a season where the no-make-up look prevailed and skin became the No1 star again, make-up artists switched up the textures for new twists on natural-looking skin. And just a Snapchat minute later, our social feeds were buzzing with the looks of the moment: matte, gloss and glow. So now the question is: will you matte, glow or gloss? No matter which look is your favourite, there is an Estée Edit finish for you. Here, Lynsey Alexander, Estée Lauder’s UK Makeup Ambassador, reveals how to get the looks with some instant-impact, fuss-free Estée Edit essentials.

“Prep skin with Rescue Balm For Face + Body [£34] for the ultimate hydration – the moisture cushion allows skin to stay supple and soft beneath your make-up. Apply a fine layer of Matte Foundation* [£29]. The oil-absorbing properties mean you won’t need a powder to mattify and your skin can breathe, but if you are prone to shine in the wrong areas, a quick swipe of Pore Vanishing Stick [£21] is all you need for touch-ups.”

THE DEEP BOLD It’s about layering different textures to create a deep, multidimensional lip colour: pencil first, then lipstick or Velvet Lip Glide £22. TOP TIP To keep the edges sharp, sharpen your pencil between layers and use some neat, crisp concealer on a fine-pointed brush to clean up.

2

THE OMBRE PINK This is the most on-trend way to wear your favourite shades of pink: one darker shade on the top lip and one lighter shade on the bottom. TOP TIP Powder the top lip after applying to make it last and prevent bleeding into the lighter shade at the bottom.

ife would be simple if it all just revolved around one thing – work, family, friends, a partner, partying… But we want it all, and we deserve it all. The only downside to having it all? Your skin will bear the brunt. Lack of sleep and daily external aggressors such as pollution, stress, smoking or an unbalanced diet can take their toll and signs of fatigue become visible. “Skin begins to look tired and dull, wrinkles begin to appear, and it takes longer to recover from the long days and late nights associated with modern living,” explains skincare guru Mathilde Thomas. “This is skin cell burnout.” It’s OK, though, don’t hang up your heels just yet. We have good news: with a skincare regime rich in antioxidants and vitamins, you can feed the skin so it can fight back. Caudalie’s VineActiv is just the self-defence system you need to combat the signs of a fast-paced lifestyle. So, now you can carry on living life at 100mph and do it with a healthy glow.

Get a really deep clean with Umbrian Clay Purifying Mask £52 – leave on for five minutes and once you’ve rinsed, pop a little more directly onto any blemishes for ten minutes. Next, use the Rose Face Mask to tone and hydrate the skin for five to ten minutes, and finish with Black Tea Instant Perfecting Mask to nourish and heal any imperfections. Leave for five to ten minutes and rinse.

o matter what skin type you have, your true glow potential is probably being held back. Thanks to our environment and lifestyles, dullness is a No1 concern. Now for the good news. There is an at-home mini facial you can give yourself that will reveal your glowiest skin in a flash. And you only need ONE product – the cult Glow Tonic £18. It contains glycolic acid to remove the dead skin cells which lead to dullness, while ginseng

“Decant a 5p-sized amount on a cotton pad and sweep across the face, then turn the cotton pad over and sweep the fresh side across your lips.” “Place Glow Tonic in a spray bottle and spritz over your face for an overall toning mist.” “To give an extra glow to your skin, use Glow Tonic on your neck, décolletage, and the back of your hands before putting on moisturiser – it hydrates, soothes, gently exfoliates, brightens and brings back that all-important glow to all skin types.” “To help with blemishes, soak a cotton pad with Glow Tonic and place on the required area for one to two minutes. The witch hazel and aloe work in synergy to calm and soothe.” “Prep for a face mask with Glow Tonic – the glycolic acid ensures that surface debris is removed, so the mask penetrates deeply. It can also be used afterwards to remove any excess.” “Place Glow Tonic in the fridge for five to ten minutes before use to help reduce puffiness in the skin or, for the ultimate soothing experience, decant into a clean ice-cube tray and freeze. Once it’s frozen, gently sweep across the skin after cleansing.”

2 3 accelerates cell renewal to reveal brighter, smoother skin. But unlike other toners and exfoliants, it does so without causing redness or irritation – it’s alcohol-free, so it won’t dry out your skin, and the aloe vera will actually soothe and calm your skin.

D

isguising killer hangovers? Changing a nappy at 3am? Getting revenge on cheating boyfriends? Celebs go through this stuff just like us. And on new show Celebrity Advice Bureau, the star guests will be serving up advice on how to handle these life issues based on their own experiences. From the hilarious Rick Edwards and Joel Dommett to Alice Levine and Gogglebox’s Steph and Dom, the advice bureau will show themselves to be as flawed and as frank as the viewing public, as they weigh up each dilemma…

M E E T S O M E O F T H E ‘ EX P E RT S ’ NAME ALICE LEVINE OCCUPATION Broadcaster

and co-founder of Jackson&Levine What’s the biggest challenge that you face? In life – early starts are my biggest challenge. Every time I have to set the alarm for any earlier than

Angellica Bell and Michael Underwood

7am, it’s pretty killer. I don’t think I’ll ever grow out of that. Who do you go to for advice? Obviously, friends. But sometimes you need a little panel with the optimist, the pessimist, the realist and then the person who comes at things from a different angle. What’s the worst piece of advice you’ve received? I was once told in a work meeting that you shouldn’t do lots of different things, as people will be confused about what you actually do. I think that’s the worst bit of advice I’ve ever been given, because what I do now is lots of different things, and I can’t imagine it any other way. I remember coming out of that meeting five years ago worried about what I should choose, as I liked all these different elements of my job.


bespoke promotion

“I reckon Jennifer Lawrence would give stellar advice. And I bet she has a strong emoji game on text”

and TV Presenter What’s the best piece of advice you’ve received?

When I was thinking about starting stand-up, my mum told me to do things so I don’t lie on my death bed wondering why I didn’t try it. So, “Go for it” would be the best bit of advice I’ve ever received.

NAME LAURA JACKSON OCCUPATION Broadcaster and

co-founder of Jackson&Levine Who do you go to for advice? My boyfriend, Jon, is the best barometer of everything and he’s my moral compass. He’s good with advice and good at listening – sometimes he doesn’t know what to say, but you could talk to him for ages and already feel better about it. Which celebrity would you like to give some advice to, and why? Kayne West. I'd tell him he needs a holiday or maybe to take a break and do a ski season. Which celebrity do you think would give amazing advice, and why? Oprah, for example. I reckon Jennifer Lawrence would give stellar advice. In every interview I've read she seems really confident, and I reckon she has a good take on the world. I bet she has a strong emoji game on text.

NAME MAT T RICHARDSON OCCUPATION Comedian

What advice would you give to your teenage self?

Stop showing off at school; you’ve got a whole lifetime to show off professionally, and it’s really bloody annoying. Which celebrity would you like to give some advice to, and why?

Justin Bieber. He can’t be lovely one minute, setting up churches, and then be a brat to his audience on stage. He’s surrounded by yes-men, and this has led to a very talented young man being horrible. I’d never yell at my audience. Mostly because there’s sometimes only 15 of them.

NAME ANGELLICA BELL OCCUPATION TV Presenter Matt Richardson and Ellie Taylor The comedy duo will be solving the world’s problems

What advice would you give to your teenage self?

Gosh, I’d tell my teenage self I should stop being afraid, take more risks and, even though you may not be the bestlooking or most popular girl with the boys, you don’t have to go out with any old person who asks you out – be selective.

NAME ELLIE TAYL OR OCCUPATION Comedian

Who do you go to for advice? What’s the best piece of advice you’ve received?

“It’s not a race, it’s a dance.” No idea what it means, but it sounds hashtag deep, and sometimes that’s all you need. What advice would you give to your teenage self?

Don’t use red food colouring as hair dye to try and look like Ginger Spice. Also, when you go to uni, don’t get a boyfriend in the first term, you massive, massive idiot. You’ll meet the love of your life at 25, and wish you’d shifted a few more

wild oats while you had the chance. Which celebrity would you like to give some advice to, and why?

Probably Amy Schumer. I’d be like, “Ames, babe, sure your show’s good, but you know how it could be even better?” Then I’d point to myself and say, “This guy.” Then I’d do some kind of killer dance move and then she’d be like, “Wow, you are so cool and funny,” and then I’d be like, “I know, right?!” And then we’d move in together and adopt a house rabbit and be together for the rest of our goddamn lives.

YOU R C HA N C E T O W IN T IC K E T S Visit liveonw.co.uk for your chance to win afternoon tea for two at The Bloomsbury Club in London. All you have to do is answer the following question: ‘What channel is Celebrity Advice Bureau on?’ Enter by Friday March 10 at 5pm. T&Cs apply. Celebrity Advice Bureau airs on entertainment TV channel W. Join the conversation on Twitter using the hashtag #CelebAdvice

The only person I go to for advice is my better half, Michael. He’ll probably say I should listen to him more! What advice do you wish you’d taken?

One of my friends always told me to buy clothes to fit NOW! I’ve only just started to listen, and if I’d opened my ears earlier, I wouldn’t have wasted so much money on clothes I thought I’d try and lose weight to fit into at a later date. I bought some Chloé jeans in the sale in 2005 and they still have the label on. What a fool – but they do look nice on the hanger.

Girls reaches its sixth and final season

M

ix yourself a Martini for glossy thriller SS-GB (BBC One), starring a very glamourous Kate Bosworth. In an alternate world where Germany won WWII, Kate stars as Barbara Barga, an alluring American war reporter caught up in a London murder, with Sam Riley playing DS Douglas Archer, the Scotland Yard detective who falls for her. Can he trust her? Less glam, more grit – Sharon Horgan and Rob Delaney return for Season Three of the ferociously funny Catastrophe (Channel 4), which takes a scalpel to modern love. Buckle up for more blistering dialogue. And we wave goodbye to Lena Dunham’s millennial masterpiece with the final season of Girls (Sky Atlantic). After five seasons of angst, will her self-obsessed, painfully accurate characters finally let themselves be happy? Either way, we’ll miss them.

MUSIC

Girl on fire Meet the best-connected woman in music – Zara Larsson

Lush Life “When you’re looking for songs, you often have a ‘songwriting camp’ where you invite lots of talented writers and producers to contribute to your album. That’s how Lush Life came about. Freedo & Shuko [the super-cool Swiss-German production duo] worked on it and it really stood out. It’s very pop – initially I did think it was too pop for me – but I couldn’t stop singing it. The first time I performed it live, on tour in Sweden, I could see how much the audience loved it.”

So Good “This was written by J Kash, Charlie Puth [who sings the insanely catchy No1 hit Marvin Gaye] and Ty Dolla $ign. When I recorded it, Ty asked if he could do a verse – I’m his biggest fan, so I said, ‘Hell, yeah, you can do whatever you want.’”

Ain’t My Fault “MNEK wrote this track. We’d just finished Never Forget You [their topfive single from 2015] and had time left in the session, so we started something new. We wanted to make something fun – it’s not deep,

148

it’s one everyone can sing along to in a club. Working with MNEK is a dream; he doesn’t overthink things. Some people spend hours deciding if a lyric should be ‘couldn’t’ or ‘wouldn’t’ – I get so bored of that.”

Only You “This is a more chilled song. It’s still pop – it has that backbeat and guitar – but there’s a vulnerability. It describes love so perfectly. The lyrics are by a great songwriter called Mack [he’s worked with Icona Pop and VV Brown], and as soon as I heard this, I felt a connection.”

I Can’t Fall In Love Without You “This is a simple ballad. It’s just a piano and my voice. It’s sad, but also sassy. It’s inspired by all those feelings everyone has when they break up with someone. I didn’t want it to be cheesy, though, so there’s some toughness in the lyrics, too – I’m thinking of the line: ‘I hope you can still get it up when you f**k someone else.’” Zara’s new album is out this month

Yep, the Oscars got called out …but has anything really changed? Rhianna Dhillon breaks it down Remember Oscars 2016? Of all 20 acting nominees, not a single one was a person of colour, sparking the #OscarsSoWhite Twitter backlash. It was shocking, but as a film critic, not that surprising: it was just the same in 2015. In response to public outrage, the Academy added 683 voters to their ranks, hoping to increase their diversity. It’s long overdue; we’ll find out on February 26 if it makes a difference as to who takes home the awards. Thanks in part to the #OscarsSoWhite campaign, we’ve seen a welcome increase in the visibility of films featuring actors and directors of colour. We have not one, but two mainstream awards contenders that tell true stories of black lives. Loving is based on an interracial couple in 1950s America, whose marriage was deemed illegal, and Ruth Negga shines with an understated but powerful performance opposite Joel Edgerton. Meanwhile, Hidden Figures celebrates three black women (played by Taraji P Henson, Octavia Spencer, and Janelle Monáe) who worked for NASA in the 1960s. It’s not just on screen – the people

behind the camera matter, too. August Wilson, author of the play-turned-film Fences, stipulated that only an African-American could direct his work. Denzel Washington took up the mantle as both director and lead actor (opposite the magnificent Viola Davis), playing a man frustrated with his lack of opportunities. I’ve often thought that while there are plenty of stories about people of colour overcoming adversity, wouldn’t it be wonderful if that adversity wasn’t always race? There have even been suggestions of a racial Bechdel test: do two characters of colour talk about something other than race, or a white lead character? If it kickstarts better roles for minorities, I’m all for it. For me, the most important movie of awards season is Moonlight, which passes this proto-test with flying colours. It’s a movie featuring a largely black cast, written and directed by an AfricanAmerican (Barry Jenkins) but with no references to race. Instead, it’s a tender coming-of-age story about a boy coming to terms with his sexuality, while living with a drug addict mother, played with true rawness by Naomie Harris. House Of Cards’ Mahershala Ali also makes a brief but memorable appearance as an empathetic drug dealer. This is a vital movie, not just because stereotypes are subverted, but because it is rare to see a black gay character explored in such depth. With movies like Moonlight in our future, I reckon the #OscarsSoWhite campaign can win.

UP CLOSE

Jodie Whittaker 7.30am I stay in a flat in Bristol when we’re filming. The show is set in Dorset but the house my character [Beth Latimer] lives in is actually in Somerset. Luckily, I don’t have an early call time – Olivia Colman and David Tennant do all the hard graft – so I have some time to myself in the morning. 8.15am The flat is on the harbour, above the best breakfast place ever. It’s called Spoke & Stringer – I wish they had one at home in London. I have poached eggs and smashed avocado on toast, very middle class. 9.15am Take a walk around the city centre to get some air, before I’m cooped up in my trailer all day. I pop into my favourite shop, Blaze, an art co-op and mini exhibition space. 11am The car picks me up to take me to the set in Clevedon, outside Bristol. I always ask the driver to hook up my iPod and then I subject them to my playlists. I’m very eclectic in my tastes – you’ll get a bit of Sia, then Arcade Fire, and then a track from a really indie band like The Slow Show.

11.40am Straight into make-up, one of my favourite parts of the day. You get to catch up with all the cast, we’re just in a row chatting. Beth’s ‘no make-up’ make-up takes 45 minutes max, it’s blow-drying my frizzy hair that can take time. 1pm After a lamb curry from catering, we’re on set. There’s lots of waiting, so I always have a book. I’ve nearly finished the Southern Reach trilogy by Jeff VanderMeer. 1.35pm Start shooting: the scene is with Andrew Buchan and Charlotte Beaumont, who play my on-screen husband and daughter. Even though I’ve been playing Beth for three seasons, it’s still pretty dark. She’s lost her child in an awful way. 3.10pm There’s a field behind the Latimers’ house, so I’ve bought a

ball, and I make the crew play catch with me between shots. Filming can be quite emotional, so I like to keep moving and out of my head, and save the intensity for the camera. 8pm Time to wrap. The goal is to get through five script pages a day. We shoot two episodes in a block, and we’re only given each script just before we film it. It’s someone’s job at the end of each day to check no one’s left their script behind that might end up leaking a spoiler. 8.30pm Dinner with some of the team at The Olive Shed. It’s our go-to, as it’s pretty central for everyone. 9.45pm I’ve been given the scripts for the last two episodes, so I race back to the flat to read them. I can’t wait to find out what happens. Then it’s into my comfies to watch the brilliant Peaky Blinders on Netflix. 11.30pm My night-time routine hasn’t changed since I was 12 years old. Cleanse with Neutrogena, moisturise with Aveeno, then bed. Broadchurch returns to ITV this month

Want to write a novel? As a budding novelist, you have to write from the heart. But it doesn’t hurt to smell what sells… Unhappy families We’ve had toxic relationships – see The Girl On The Train, Gone Girl and a million copycats – but now it’s all about toxic families. Paula Hawkins’ new thriller, Into The Water (out May), follows two sisters tangled in too many secrets, while Emily Fridlund’s History Of Wolves is a coming-of-age story about a lonely teen girl who prefers a neighbouring family to her own hippie parents. Then there’s Her Perfect Life, by Sam Hepburn, a psychological rollercoaster about two mothers – Grace’s life is golden, Juliet is a broke single mum – who forge an unlikely friendship. All, of course, is not as it seems.

Horrible histories There’s a growing appetite for historical fiction based on real-life crimes. Remember that gruesome nursery rhyme: Lizzie Borden took an axe/And gave her mother 40 whacks...? Well, Borden was a real 19thcentury Massachusetts woman, tried for murdering her parents. Her story is retold in Sarah Schmidt’s See What I Have Done – and there’s a movie in the works, with Chloë Sevigny and Kristen Stewart. Meanwhile, Jake Arnott’s The Fatal Tree reimagines the life of Georgian prostitute and pickpocket Edgworth Bess, detailing her exploits with her lover, burglar Jack Sheppard – it’s an 18th-century Bonnie and Clyde.

Gender agenda Fresh new voice on trans issues? Publishers want you! In This Is How It Always Is, by Laurie Frankel, we meet Rosie and Penn. When their youngest boy, Claude, starts wearing a dress to nursery, his parents dismiss it as a phase. But it evolves into something far bigger. Then there’s Brittany Newell, the 21-year-old author of Oola, billed as “a very different kind of love story”. A twentysomething couple spend a summer house-sitting for rich families and playing dress-up in their wardrobes, as their relationship tips over into obsession. And if you’re looking for inspiration, Glamour columnist Juno Dawson’s memoir The Gender Games is out this summer.

he best way to describe my relationship with Jamie [Dornan],” Dakota Johnson begins, haltingly, “is the one way I can’t. You see he’s, he’s…” Like a brother? “He’s like a brother!” she winces, breaking out into a low laugh. “I mean, we tease each other constantly, and we’re always goofing around. I trust him, I love him and I’ve been trying to find a way to put that relationship into words, but, honestly, I feel it’s closest to a brother-sister relationship. Still, I can’t say that, can I?” It’s a tricky one, admittedly, what with all the naked romps, the spankings, the floggings and the ingenious usages of duct tape the pair have indulged in on screen over the years – ever since they were both cast in the film version of EL James’ mega-hit, Fifty Shades Of Grey. Not quite your traditional sibling relationship, is it? It’s also not what I expected to hear. After all, from the day filming on the trilogy began, gossip has swung wildly from the torrid affair Dakota and her married Northern Irish co-star have supposedly been having, to (more recently) the ill-concealed hatred the pair allegedly feel for one another. The truth is a lot less scandalous, but a whole lot more amusing, and it takes the 27-year-old daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson a minute to stop chuckling. “Seriously, though, we were lucky: from the moment I first met Jamie, way back when, we both had this feeling that somehow it would work with each other.” The elusive chemistry we hear so much about? “Yeah: it’s like you’re both hearing the same music. So for us it worked out extremely well – and thank God. Can you imagine being in those movies with someone who sucked? Because, at this point, Jamie and I are so used to each other that it’s

not even uncomfortable any more, just exhausting. It’s more a case of: ‘Well, here we go again!’” I know plenty of women who would be happy to experience the kind of ‘simulating sex for seven hours straight with Jamie Dornan’ brand of exhaustion, but Dakota sounds genuinely weary, and when the final scene of the trilogy wrapped last summer (Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed – not to be released until 2018 – were filmed back-to-back), the actress declared herself “over it”. “It’s not that it has put me off entirely,” she explains, when I ask whether she’s now on a sex-scene-free diet. “But I’m ready to do other stuff. And maybe they will be sexy [projects], or maybe they will be the complete opposite. But I do know that I’m ready to move on.” No one could blame her. After all, it was three years ago that Dakota first donned the BDSM gear to play eminently corruptible student Anastasia Steele to Jamie’s corruptor-in-chief, Christian Grey, and with the trilogy now completed, the actress “feel[s] funny talking about it now”. “It’s like I’m on another planet,” she explains. “Or 40 years older, suddenly. Because I’ve moved on so much since the films were made, and the work I’ve done since is completely different, so it’s kind of bizarre. But I guess that’s the glory of making movies: all that diversity.” When audiences on both sides of the pond pack out movie theatres on Valentine’s night – just after Fifty Shades Darker is released on February 10 – they’re going to want to know how Christian manages to win Ana back, whether their relationship can move from kinky to vanilla, whether it’s actually possible to have the biggest soul-splitting orgasm in existence in

a packed lift – and, if so, how to accomplish this without the old lady to your right noticing. But they might also wonder, as I did throughout the first film, where the actress brave enough to take on one of the most controversial roles in movie history at the start of her career will be in ten years’ time. And whether she can ever imagine a time when she thinks: ‘I wish I hadn’t done those films’. “It comes in waves,” she says quietly – and I’m surprised by her honesty. “But this project is not going to be my swansong. It has put my life on a path that I didn’t plan to go down, but I do feel proud of it. And the films have allowed me to do so many different projects and travel so much. In the end, Fifty Shades has plopped me in a world that I really wanted to be in.”

G

iven her talent (the director of Fifty Shades Of Grey, Sam Taylor-Johnson, was mesmerised by Dakota’s brief appearance in The Social Network, describing her as “a scene stealer”) and her lineage (not only are her parents two of the most respected actors in Hollywood, but her grandmother is Tippi Hedren, star of Alfred Hitchcock’s The Birds), Dakota would have found her way into that world one way or another. Her mother’s advice has always been to “go for the thing that makes your heart beat the fastest”, she tells me, “and most of the time those projects are, like Fifty Shades, the most unconventional, controversial and difficult to accomplish.” Difficult for her family to watch, too, I should think? Have her parents seen any of the films? “They haven’t,” she admits, “because it’s such a tricky thing. It’s too uncomfortable for them. It’s one thing if a film has one sex scene in it, but with this, a large part of the premise is the arc of their sexual relationship, and I think that’s a little inappropriate for my family to watch. But it was Ana’s emotional arc I was drawn to. The transformation she goes through in the movies – and how exploring her sexuality and

“I don’t have to wait around for someone to tell me that something is possible”

her inner strength turns her from young woman into grown woman.” It would be easy to draw parallels with Dakota’s own emotional arc over the past few years. In recent films (particularly 2015 drama Chloe & Theo, and last year’s How To Be Single), she has shown steel beneath that surface fragility that’s still there when you meet her. She may claim to be able to walk down the street unnoticed (“I’m one of those people who walks around like an invisible person. People literally run into me, and it’s always been that way”), but the overnight celebrity Fifty Shades brought Dakota has taught her a lot: namely, not to try and be someone you’re not – something she discovered when she found herself getting a little overzealous on Instagram. “Because there I was and it was making me feel like I was being exploited – only by myself. I was literally exploiting myself,” she says with a laugh. “And I felt so raw and vulnerable, and it was all my own fault. Which is why I don’t get that need to offer up information about myself to strangers. I couldn’t care less what models are doing on Instagram. I make movies because that’s my passion, and people can interpret them as they please, but anything else for me is way too much.”

D

akota tells me she still has insecurities to iron out. She’s working on conquering the self-doubt that still “plays out like an orchestra at full volume every time I step on set – even if I know I’m capable of pulling a part off ”. And yet, within the past three years, Dakota has somehow found the time to set up her own production company and start work on three different film projects – “one about eugenic sterilisation and the Supreme Court” – but this is just the start, she assures me. “There are quite a few stories I’ve heard about or read that I’m excited to make into films, and what’s so great is that now I don’t have to wait around for someone to tell me that something is possible – I can just make it happen myself.” Jennifer Lawrence’s campaign to highlight the gender imbalances in Hollywood has been an inspiration to her, she says, and if there aren’t enough

good solid female leads out there, “I’ll just make those films myself,” she shrugs. “Because Hollywood is really fucking brutal, and if you want to see the movies you want to see, and hear the stories you want told, you have to do it yourself. Everyone is out for box-office numbers: I mean, how many more superhero movies are they going to make? So, I guess being able to create my own stories is the fire beneath my creativity – and that will probably end up being the biggest way my life has changed since Fifty Shades.” Hang on a second. I’m all for gender equality in every industry, but I’d heard that the biggest change in her life was a newfound – and entirely aesthetic, of course – appreciation for the world of sex toys? “Oh, some of that stuff is just so beautiful!” she agrees. “When we first started on Fifty Shades, that wasn’t a world I was privy to at all, and I soon found out there are all these different tiers. There are some things out there that are really grimy and nasty, and then there are really beautiful, intricate and chic toys. Actually, whole aspects of the BDSM world are truly beautiful.” And I’m assuming that just like Ellen DeGeneres, who showered the actress with high-end kink when she appeared on her show last year, every friend and fan now makes a point of sending her snakeskin body straps, premium horsehair whips and patent leather ball gags? “Weirdly, that hasn’t happened at all,” Dakota laughs. “Or maybe they’re all being delivered elsewhere?” Maybe. Perhaps her agent’s garage is currently home to the biggest sex-toy collection in Hollywood? “With 10,000 vibrators in it! Maybe you’re right.” Our time is up, and there’s one last question – a question it was perhaps too soon for Dakota to answer on that Ellen show last year – that I want to ask. Given her single status, do men now find her too intimidating to approach? “I still can’t tell…” she muses. “I don’t think I’m a very intimidating person, so I think anyone who took the time to talk to me would very quickly realise what I am.” Which is? Dakota seems surprised by the question, as though the answer were self-evident: “Well, just a goof.” O

eauty has had a state-of-the-art makeover. Thanks to those clever bods in their white coats, the products, treatments and tools available now are the high-tech dreams of science fiction. And while they might seem futuristic, they’re here right now. “We’ve already seen the scaling down in size of professional equipment (like lasers, LED and imaging devices) for the new speedier salon service bars and beauty counters,” says BeautyMART co-founder Anna-Marie Solowij. “This is set to continue with ever-more-portable high-tech beauty tools.” So whether you’re off to the clinic, looking to tool-up at home, or even just upgrading your moisturiser, there’s a big innovation to boost your face.

T h e n ew g a d g et s “I think at-home technology will become bigger this year,” says facialist Abigail James. “It makes my job even more exciting, as results can develop between treatments.” PIGMENT Pigment Control (left) £85 Talika at Space NK combines ionotherapy micro-currents to boost the absorption of your brightening products, light therapy to control melanin synthesis and reduce the intensity of pigmentation, and micro-vibrations to stimulate fresh cell production. It’s the ultimate dark-spot blaster. LIFTING £££ FaceGym Pro (far left) £399 FaceGym – The brilliant team of facialists that literally work out the facial muscles for you has created a mini face trainer you can take home. The little massage stick emits muscle-stimulating electrical pulses to lift, tone and sculpt your skin in just ten minutes. It’ll contract the muscles just like you do with your body at the gym. ££ Neo Face Lift Pro £249 Neo Elegance – Perfect if you fancy the face-lifting potential of mesotherapy without the needles, the Neo Face Lift Pro uses the same electrical technology used in clinics to tone and lift your skin, improving texture and softening wrinkles. £ Mini Facial Toning Device £150 NuFace at Space NK – This micro-current facial-toning device works in just five minutes to tone up your skin, and is particularly good for sagging around the jawline, nose, brows and eyes. “I really rate the NuFace device for muscle-firming and boosting cell energy,” says Abigail. Look out for the NuFace Trinity Facial Toning Device launching in April, with extra attachments to target fine lines and wrinkles.

AT-HOME DIAGNOSIS Try the new Olay Skin Advisor app – simply upload a selfie via your smartphone, answer a few questions and the in-built analytics tool will estimate your visible skin age and work out a personalised skincare solution.

WAT C H T H I S FA C E “Look out for radio frequency tools in 2017,” says A-list facialist Sarah Chapman. “Clinical companies like Endymed™ will bring out homecare devices with radio frequency technology to focus on skin-tightening at home.” First up, Youth Activator For Line Reduction and Facial Contouring £240 Iluminage at Harrods launches in April, and promises a powerful combo of radio frequency and infrared LED lights to boost collagen production and improve circulation for lifted, more radiant skin.

T h e n ew f a ci a l s Lasers, LED and even cryotherapy are now being used to up the ante on the traditional facial; and with zero downtime, they’re set to become the new quick fix for a bevy of skin concerns. LED FACIAL We’ve all seen the A-list rocking their LED masks on Instagram (we’re looking at you, Kate Hudson and Jessica Alba), but what could it do for you? Well, science says cells absorb energy from the red light, and so speed up their own natural biological processes – such as producing collagen – while blue light kills bacteria, so it’s useful in treating acne, too. It has also shown great results in healing wounds, bruising and skin disorders like rosacea and eczema. At The Light Salon, all this LED brilliance has been channelled into a quickie mask. After a thorough cleanse to remove all barriers, the lights are applied for 11 minutes and you relax while they treat the epidermal cells, to kickstart rejuvenation, boosting the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid, reducing fine lines and wrinkles, and brightening the complexion. A serum and moisturiser are then carefully selected to finish your treatment with a two-minute facial massage, and a dose of SPF. From £35-40 thelight-salon.com

“On a recent research trip to Asia, I saw so many versions of LED devices – homecare devices will definitely be coming to our shores in 2017,” says Sarah Chapman

LASER-IN-YOUR-LUNCHBREAK FOR A VITAMIN BOOST With the new LASEMD Cosmeceutical Delivery Treatment (from £350 at phiclinic.com), gentle fractional lasers create pathways for super-fresh ampoules of vitamins – including brightening vitamin C and retinol – so they can reach the deeper layers of the skin, and all in less than ten minutes. You then take your vitamin ampoules with you to apply the rest of the serum at home. FOR A DEEP-CLEAN Legendary US laser bar Skin Laundry has finally landed in the UK, and we’re loving the signature 15-minute Laser & Light facial (£50 skinlaundry.com), with its skin-clearing combo of YAG and IPL lasers for a deeper clean. The lasers reach deeper down in the skin (2.5mm, to be exact), to eradicate excess sebum and bacteria, also reducing pigmentation and dullness, and diminishing the appearance of pores.

CRYOTHERAPY Skin is frozen so that blood vessels constrict – then it’s warmed up again and the blood rushes back to the surface, giving you a fresh-looking glow, and an altogether smoother, brighter complexion. It also stimulates collagen synthesis, so your skin feels firmer and less lined. Sounds good, doesn’t it? Try Dr Yannis Alexandrides’s new Cryo Energising Facial (from £50 111harleystreet.com), which uses cold air to stimulate cell renewal and promote absorption of his Cryo Energising Face Serum £140 111Skin.

DERMAROLLING: HOME vs CLINIC Dermarolling, which involves rolling a pad of micro-needles across the skin, can be a DIY treatment as well as a clinic-based one. But which is best for you? PROFESSIONAL Clinical tools have longer needles which can penetrate the skin deeper. In that setting, they’re used to cause micro-injuries which stimulate collagen production. We love Sarah Chapman’s Stem Cell Collagen Therapy £225 sarahchapman.net. AT HOME The needles are far shorter, and are excellent for aiding the absorption of your skincare products. We’re fans of Beauty Stamp £38 Nurse Jamie.

T h e n ew s k i n ca re If tools aren’t your bag, skincare is stepping up to the techno-plate, so there’s a whole world of new products that have a similar effect. THE LINE-BUSTER Line Interception Power Duo (1) £244 La Prairie at Selfridges has been designed to mimic the effects of Botox, lasers, peels and fillers by blocking the processes through which wrinkles form and smoothing any that are there in the meantime. Essentially, it’s two products fused together – one for night, one for day – to tackle wrinkles in tandem, smoothing out skin in just 14 days.

THE LOTION Dior’s scientists have focused on developing skincare/make-up hybrids that actually adjust to your skin type and lifestyle. By mimicking the healthy skin’s luminosity with soft-focus-effect mica, they’ve nailed that dewy, youthful texture. Capture Totale Dreamskin Advanced (3) £105 Dior corrects the skintone immediately, but over time also boosts collagen and elastin production to firm the skin’s framework. In trials, 91% of users said their skin looked more luminous after one application. THE MASK Gone are the days when a face mask meant 15 minutes of lying totally still so the sticky slop on your face didn’t slide onto your clothes. Radiance Renewal Mask (4) £35 Paula’s Choice is a lightweight gel you wear overnight, combining 1 lightening ingredients with hydration for plumper, healthier-looking skin on waking.

“Tattoos and body art are always more than just colours and shapes,” says make-up artist Val Garland. “Back in the day, when tattoos could only be in permanent form, they were a statement of identity. Now, there are so many forms of body art, and not only are they removable, but they are fast and easy to apply, too. Tattoos and body art serve as a declaration of individuality.” No longer regarded as a clichéd act of rebellion, 21st-century tattoos are prettier, more colourful and daintier than ever. In short, they’ve become the hot accessory for spring. Forget jewellery; it’s all about body art – real or faux.

BODY ART Continuing the trend from last season – where every cool celebrity and model took to wearing body jewellery in the form of metallic transfers – designers embraced body and face art in many ways. Val’s pressed flowers at Preen was arguably the biggest talking point of backstage. “Creating the Preen flower power is easy – all it takes is some eyelash glue and pressed petals,” says Val. When creating body or face art, “The trick is to focus on one thing at a time. It can be bold, it can be big, but just one main focus,” advises

Val. When you draw something small or symbolic, felt-tip liquid liners are a great tool and easy to control. “They last longer than pencils and come in lots of fun colours, so you can get creative and have fun,” says Val.

“The range of colours available now is huge. Tattoos used to only be in the classic blue ink, but now artists are tattooing as if they were painting,” says tattoo expert and co-owner of Love Hate Social Club Guy Saar. “If you are considering a watercolour tattoo, it’s important to really discuss this with your artist, as when the ink sets and ages it can lose its contrast,” advises Guy.

CELEBRITY “Celebrity- and model-inspired ink is becoming increasingly fashionable. It’s particularly evolved over the past five years due to the growing obsession with social media, Pinterest and celebrities,” says Guy. As the industry grows, designs are more intricate. “Being a tattoo artist has become a serious career; there are some of the world’s best artists choosing to tattoo as an extension of their creative skill, making it possible to create pretty much anything,” Guy explains.

TAT T CHAT Considering a tattoo? Make sure you do your research. “It’s so important to visit the shop, ensure that it’s clean and never quibble about the price,” says Guy. Why? “Even if you have to save for a year for your artwork, it is worth it. You shouldn’t scrimp when it comes to getting something on your body for the rest of your life – it’s an investment.” O

No meat. No dairy. No problem? Veganism is the latest food trend that millions swear by to beat bloating, boost skin and raise energy levels. If you want what they’re (not) having, read our need-to-know guide…

W

hat’s for dinner? Spag bol? Chicken salad? Or how about a tofu stir-fry or lentil curry? Because plant-based food is now everywhere, and chances are, even if you’re not vegan, you know someone who is. According to The Vegan Society, ten years ago there were 150,000 vegans in the UK. Today, that number has risen by 360%, with 42% of vegans aged 15-34. The meat-free market is booming, with most supermarkets now offering animal-free options, and more stocking solely vegan food, including London’s Vx and GreenBay. Vegfest.co.uk lists over 50 vegan fairs and festivals taking place this year, and mainstream restaurants are adapting. Zizzi recently introduced a mozzarella alternative for pizzas, while Pret’s menu options span from avocado and chickpea wraps to vegetable tagine soup. So what’s driving the trend? “Originally, it was animal welfare and environmental concerns,” says nutritional therapist Alison Cullen. “Lately, though, it’s the health benefits that are causing more people to make the switch,” adds Cullen. Short-term campaigns such as #meatfreemondays and #veganuary (where people ‘go vegan’ for 31 days for a New Year health kick) are gaining thousands of followers. And when A-listers such as Beyoncé and J.Lo rave about their vegan diets, you can’t blame us for being curious. But with the boom come confusing headlines and claims that offer more questions than answers. That’s why we’ve quizzed the experts on all things vegan. Here’s what you need to know…

A-Z OF VEGAN FOODS

GOING VEGAN? TRY THIS

OK, so what is a vegan, exactly? If you scroll through social media, you’d be forgiven for confusing it with paleo diets, raw food, clean eating and other cross-over trends. But put simply, being vegan means not eating or using animal products. No meat, poultry, fish, dairy, eggs, honey or other bee products. Vegans don’t wear leather, wool, silk or any products that contain animal-derived ingredients or are tested on animals. Even certain beers or wines are off limits because of fish scales used in production. One of the biggest misconceptions is that vegans can’t eat processed foods, gluten or sugar, says nutritionist Ian Marber. “Some choose not to – but that’s nothing to do with the ethos of veganism.”

There are lots of tasty substitutes for animal produce, including these… O FOR A CUPPA Plenish’s new hazelnut milk (£3.49, plenishcleanse.com) O FOR A BEER CELIA organic vegan lager (£2.49 for 330ml, ocado.com) O FOR BREAKFAST Co Yo’s Coconut Milk Yoghurt Alternative (£2, waitrose.com) O FOR SANDWICHES Plamil Egg Free Mayo (£2.29, hollandandbarrett.com) O OR WHEN NOTHING BUT ICE CREAM WILL DO Alpro plant-based ice cream (£3.50, tesco.com)

Warning: when I was first testing the recipe altogether. In hindsight, it didn’t will cause hunger.

It’s true that vegans risk losing out on certain nutrients. “Because vegans don’t eat meat, fish or dairy, they risk becoming deficient in the vitamins and minerals these provide, including protein, iron, vitamin B12, zinc, omega-3 fats and selenium,” says Dr Phillips. “A lack of iron can cause anaemia, which can make you feel tired and weak. Similarly, our energy and mood is affected if we don’t get enough protein, B12, omega-3 fats and zinc. Low selenium levels can even cause hair loss.” But while some of us assume animal produce is the main source of these – particularly protein – it is possible to get nearly all we need from plant foods. “Nuts and seeds are packed with selenium and omega-3 fats, while beans, pulses and tofu are great sources of protein and zinc,” says Dr Phillips. “For iron, look to green leafy vegetables, dried fruits and wholegrains.” As for B12, the only reliable vegan sources are “fortified foods: those with added vitamin B12,” says Cullen. “This includes some milk alternatives, but I’d suggest a daily B-complex supplement, too.”

GOING VEGAN? TRY THIS The labels of milk alternatives will tell you if they have added B12, but you could try the Rice Dream range (in supermarkets nationwide). For supplements, try Holland & Barrett B-Complex & B12 Tablets (from £3.99, hollandandbarrett.com) and Healthspan Vitamin B12 1,000mcg (£13.95, healthspan.co.uk). And whether you love or hate it, just 5g of Marmite gives us 25% of our recommended daily B12 intake.

If I decide to go vegan, what are my first steps? “From meat lover to 100% vegan”

By Hannah Ebelthite and Ali Pantony. Photographs: Sarah Illenberger, @fettlevegan, @cara_schrock, @myberryforest/Instagram. Always check food labels to make sure they’re vegan. Keep xylitol away from pets, as it’s toxic to dogs

Sarah Wadmore, 26, a marketing manager from Brighton, ate meat or fish almost every day until October 2015, when she watched a documentary and went vegan overnight. Here’s her diary…

WEEKS 1-2 I stock up on veg and, while I have more energy, it’s hard work. Most food in my cupboards, such as honey, is now inedible. I can’t wear my silk or wool clothes. My skin breaks out, too, but I think this is a result of my body adjusting, so I don’t give up. WEEKS 3-4 I’m experimenting with food – like tofu – and while I’m not missing meat, I do miss cheese. Luckily, some restaurants in my home town, like Purezza, do vegan pizzas. My skin is clearing up and even looks brighter. But I’m still struggling with organisation. Because I can’t just reach for a sandwich or a ready meal, I’m planning the week’s meals on a Sunday, prepping as many packed lunches – chickpea salads and lentil-stuffed peppers – as I can. Sticking to this meal formula of ‘legume + veg’ is nutritious and cheap. WEEKS 5-6 The longer I stick to veganism, the easier it gets. I’m perfecting Sunday batch cooking – two trays of veg roasting while tofu marinates. I’ve noticed I don’t have that 4pm slump at work – but I’ve been diligent with supplements. NOW I don’t think twice before using rice milk in my porridge. I rarely feel bloated or tired. Ethically, I’m thrilled that I don’t use any animal products. It’s not for everyone, but I’ll never go back.

Of course, the choice to go vegan or not is yours. If you do – for the animals, the planet, your health or sustainable food production – it’s still worth having a consultation with a dietitian, especially if you have any existing health issues. They’ll make sure you have all nutrition bases covered. Your GP can recommend a dietitian in your area, or you can check out freelancedietitians.org. Then, stock up on vegan cookbooks. Try Forks Over Knives: The Cookbook by Del Sroufe, The Vegan Cookbook by Adele McConnell and The New Vegan by Áine Carlin. The key is to really think about and plan your meals, advises Marber. “Make sure they’re nutritionally balanced, and remember, healthy vegans love their food. They’re not afraid of experimenting.”

burning myths about UTIs …that our experts are about to debunk

Y

ou probably know the symptoms of a UTI: that need to pee right now and the sore sensation when you do. But you may not know why you get these infections or how to stop them. Don’t worry, we’ve got this.

1 Wo nel yg eftr oUmT Isse x

2

It’s OK just to call your doctor for meds

Wrong move. “Even if a patient is sure she has a UTI, I still make her come in so I can get a sample,” says Dr Dabney. Why? Many conditions mimic UTI symptoms, and even hospitals mix them up. According to a 2015 study, fewer than half of the UTIs diagnosed were identified correctly (some were STIs), so that visit to your GP is worth the trip. “If you don’t have a UTI – or if you do but it doesn’t respond to the antibiotic you have – we can adjust the treatment,” Dr Dabney says.

Cranberry juice prevents UTIs

“One theory was that cranberry juice altered your urine’s pH level, making it more acidic and so a less hospitable environment for bacteria,” says Dr Deepak A Kapoor, president of Advanced Urology Centers of New York. But a large-scale review concluded that cranberry juice

202

doesn’t really reduce the occurrence of UTIs. Stick to regular H2O. “Water will flush out the bladder without any sugar or artificial ingredients,” says Dr Kapoor.

4 Ps eexe ianvgo bi de fso irne f oe rc t ai of tne r Hit the toilet before and after sex, and you’re in the clear, right? Unfortunately, there’s never been great research that proves this will reduce your chances of getting a UTI. Doctors do recommend peeing, but only after sex, saying it can’t hurt. “But if you urinate before sex, it’s harder to urinate after, and you want a steady stream of urine to flush out bacteria,” says Dr Kapoor.

5 Si no cmr ee asseex uy ao ul rp orsi istki o n s

In truth, whether you’re standing, sitting or lying down doesn’t matter. “Those bacteria are equal-opportunity offenders: They’ll find their way into your urethra any way they can,” says gynaecologist Dr Mary Jane Minkin. The one thing that does have an impact? “Having vaginal intercourse after anal intercourse is a guaranteed way to introduce bad bacteria into your urinary tract,” says Dr Minkin. (If you’re going

from anal to vaginal in the same session, get your partner to wash and use a new condom.) Too much suction during oral sex can cause similar symptoms. “I’ve seen patients who can’t pee, or who complain it burns, because their partner has sucked so hard it has inflamed their clitoris and urethra,” adds obstetrician Dr Hilda Hutcherson. Love the enthusiasm, but ask your partner to ease up.

6 Ua rTeI cs o n t a g i o u s

Nope. While UTIs can be triggered by sex, your partner doesn’t pass on the bacteria. “It’s from bacteria living near the vulva and the opening to the urethra,” says Dr Dabney. But it’s easy to see how this myth started: we often get UTIs when we have sex for the first time after a long break, or after hooking up with someone new. “When you change partners, sex becomes different,” says Dr Kapoor. “The length and girth of his penis and the way you both move during intercourse can affect how much bacteria gets swept into your urinary tract. As a result, you may find that you’re more, or less, likely to get an infection than with a previous partner.”

By Hallie Levine. Illustrations: Gemma Correll

Sex is the most common cause; nearly 80% of infections in women occur within a day of intercourse. “The backand-forth rhythm propels bacteria from your vulva, vagina or rectum into your bladder,” explains Dr Lisa Dabney, an assistant professor of obstetrics and gynaecology. But there are other triggers, too, including wiping yourself from back to front, and masturbating. Having a condition that blocks your urinary tract, such as kidney stones, or affects your immune system, like diabetes, can also make you more likely to get one. If you get them frequently but not after sex, let your doctor know.

10 t i mes i t ’ s O K t o say, “ S cr e w i t , wh y n ot?”

BELTING OUT BALLADS IN THE SHOWER LIKE A BOSS. DEAL WITH IT, FLATMATE/ NEIGHBOUR/ NEIGHBOUR’S DOG.

GETTING THAT PIXIE CU T Less drying time = 10 more minutes in bed.

Not changing out of your PJs on Sundays #nojudgement.

7

4 BUYING THAT LEATHER JACKET A) It’s beautiful. B) It’s an investment. C) Who needs rent money anyway?

6 SAYING YES TO THAT NOT-SURE SECOND DATE You told him about that time you fell asleep in a bar and he STILL asked you out again. It’s a sign from the Tinder gods.

5 ORDERING TAKEAWAY… AGAIN NOT USING THOSE ‘20% OFF’ HUNGRYHOUSE PROMOS IS ESSENTIALLY FOOD WASTE, RIGHT?

9 Doing sweet FA on holiday Lying in the sun = sweat, and sweat = detoxing. You’re basically on a health retreat.

224

Wearing Glasto clothes outside of Glasto

That sequined crop top is way too pretty to spend another 12 months at the back of your wardrobe.

10 GETTING ON A MOTORBIKE Because, hello? You’ve already got the leather jacket and every girl looks cool on a motorbike.
