“Be kind to yourself”
Inspired to get help You have literally saved my life. I was, wrongly, for too long, too ashamed of my mental-health problem to admit to anyone I was suffering. As a result, my life disappeared before my eyes. But thanks to your coverage of mentalhealth issues, I’ve realised I’d go to the doctor to fix any other organ, so why should my brain be any different? Rhiannon, by email @jaevans85 @GlamourMagUK You read my mind. Wedding flats are the way forward… take me to the dancefloor!

My mum has been fighting cancer for the past year and it resulted in me deferring my master’s at university, as I could not afford the fees.

My outlook has completely changed and it is time to be less critical.

Alessandra Ambrosio 7am My son, Noah, wriggles into bed with me. My kids often wake me up. 7.35am I make some eggs and avocado for Noah, my daughter, Anja, and I – but Noah ends up eating most of it. 8.45am Drop them off at school, then I head to my barre class – exercise inspired by ballet. I mix up my classes, but this is ‘my thing’ at the moment. 11am Time to meditate. When I have a lot on, like today, meditation de-stresses me, so I always make space for it. 12pm Back at home in my office, I fire off some work emails and chat to my sister in Brazil. 1.20pm Fit in a manicure ready for my trip to London for the launch of Replay’s Hyperfree jeans – I’m a brand ambassador.
2.30pm I’ve left all my packing until the last minute! I dig out a big scarf (I never travel on a plane without one) to use as a blanket. 4.30pm An early dinner with the family. I throw together rice, beans,

veggies and a little chicken cooked in coconut oil. 7pm After goodbye kisses, I’m on the plane and start to relax into my usual travel routine. I like flying, and on the right flights they serve this yummy hot fudge sundae, so I always order that. I put on a little moisturiser and watch Sisters with Tina Fey and Amy Poehler – it totally cracks me up. Then I sleep for the rest of the flight. 11am (UK time) Finally arrive at my hotel in central
London. The first thing I do is phone my mum. I always call her when I’m travelling, even if it’s just for a few minutes; I make sure we talk. Then I grab a green juice, and I’m ready for a day of press ahead of the Replay party tonight.

Su m m e r o f l ove Have a holiday romance without leaving your sun lounger
The Comet Seekers Helen Sedgwick A stellar love story that echoes down decades and centuries, The Comet Seekers opens with Irish scientist Róisín and French chef François meeting at a snowy South Pole research station. But it turns out their paths have criss-crossed their entire lives, every time a comet bursts across the sky. It’s one of those books with lots of big themes – science and the supernatural, family love and duty, how we’re all connected by nature – an ambitious literary debut.

Acts Of Love Talulah Riley
Miss You Kate Eberlen
Riley starred in St Trinian’s and Pride & Prejudice before becoming a novelist. In her debut, gorgeous, scheming journalist Bernadette is in love with her agent, Tim, and is determined to ensnare him, despite the fact he’s engaged to Elizabeth. Elizabeth’s friend, Radley Blake, is disgusted by Bernadette’s plan and, it seems, is the only man ever to not fall at her feet… or will he?
Gus is The One for Tess – well, he would be if they ever properly met. They first almostconnected as holidaying 18 year olds in ’90s Florence, and so begins a series of near-misses over two decades. It’s being billed as the successor to David Nicholls’ One Day, and you can see why – this is a slow-burn romance tempered by wry humour, and hampered by family tragedy and bad choices.

The House On Sunset Lake Tasmina Perry In the summer of ’95, we arrive at Casa D’Or in Savannah, Georgia, family home of Jennifer. Renting the house next door is British boy Jim. Sparks fly, but Jennifer already has a wealthy boyfriend and her future appears set. Then everything changes. Decades on, Jim returns to piece together that summer.

Kids In Love Charity worker Jack (Will Poulter) bumps into wistful French beauty Evelyn (Alma Jodorowsky), who introduces him to her model chums (including Cara Delevingne). Now, he’s torn between taking up a place at Bristol Uni and trying to go out with her. OK, so this coming-of-age story isn’t going to be bothering awards season, but if you’re after a sweet and gentle British rom-com, it fits the bill – and Poulter is as endearing as ever.
No w sh owin g ... ROMANCE, RUDE FOOD, WEIRD KIDS AND A NIGHTMARE THRILLER – TAKE YOUR PICK 4 3
Sausage Party A Pixar spoof from the writers of Superbad. Frank the hot dog (Seth Rogen) and his friends dream of escaping the supermarket shelves. But they soon realise their hellish fate. It’s packed with expletives, Technicolor violence and Hollywood stars: James Franco (a piece of toast), Paul Rudd (a tomato), Salma Hayek (a taco), and Kristen Wiig… as a hot dog bun. Just wait for the sex scene.
A distant father, a brittle mother and angry priests – no wonder the young boy (Tom Sweet) at the centre of this dark, arty movie is so strange. Set in 1918, it unfolds in three chapters, based on three big tantrums, as the kid plays up with increasing ferocity. Look out for Robert Pattinson (complete with impressive beard), who stars as a family friend.
The premise is a cracker: an online game where ‘players’ are persuaded by ‘watchers’ to do challenges for cash. Emma Roberts plays a shy student who’s pressured into playing. It starts out innocently – kissing a stranger (Dave Franco) – but the pair get drawn into ever more dangerous pranks. With a steadily mounting sense of dread, it’s one of this year’s cleverest films.

Salma H AY E K We asked the actress, ﬁlm producer and UNICEF ambassador – who’s changed your life?
MOTHER TERESA Missionary “When I was 30, a friend and I went to Calcutta to volunteer with her. I worked in three different hospices, and you cannot imagine the conditions. She gave these people food and a bed. She provided dignity within the horror.” EVELYN O’NEILL Manager “Evelyn also represents Julianne Moore, and I’ll tell you what: we’re both way over 40 and, baby, we’ve never worked more. That’s because there’s a woman behind us who is determined to change Hollywood.” EVE ENSLER Playwright “Eve has taught me how to be a better advocate through causes like V-Day, her global campaign to stop violence against women. She respects me 48 GLAMOUR
intellectually, and she also helps me with my terrible stage fright.”
KAMILA GIBRAN Mother of the author Kahlil Gibran “She moved from Lebanon to the US by herself, with four children, in 1895. And then one of her sons wrote The Prophet in 1923, which has influenced so many lives [Salma produced and voiced an animated version of it in 2014]. She symbolises how important it is to help women, because the future of new generations is in their hands.”

TWO HOT NEW SHOWS + ONE EAGERLY AWAITED RETURN = BINGE-WATCH TIME
By Sagal Mohammed and Hanna Woodside. Photograph: Paola Kudacki
etflix has done it again, with another OMG-can’twait series, The Get Down (1), streaming from August 12. Created by Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge!, The Great Gatsby), it’s set in 1970s New York, during the birth of hip-hop, and follows a group of Bronx teenagers, including Jaden Smith as Dizzee, a talented graffiti artist. Expect all the stylish flair Luhrmann is known and loved for. For something altogether more chilling and less musical, there’s Wolf Creek (2) on FOX from August 30. Adapted from the film of the same name, it follows a teenage girl (newcomer Lucy Fry) and her family, who are hunted by a murderous psychopath while travelling in Australia. Not what you want from your summer holiday. Finally, fans of Narcos (3), rejoice: Season Two starts on Netflix on September 2. Based on the life of ruthless Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar (played by Wagner Moura, who was Golden Globenominated for his performance), it’s Breaking Bad meets The Sopranos.
All hail Alicia Girl On Fire was one of the biggest records of 2012, and Alicia Keys is back to conquer the charts with a new (and as yet untitled) album this month. The latest single to drop, In Common, might have you thinking it’s all big, poppy tracks, but this album is a story of two halves. Alongside the commercial hits are bluesy, back-to-her-roots numbers like Hallelujah and Pawn It All – the kind of spine-tingling songs found on her 2001 debut album, Songs In A Minor. This month, Alicia’s also joining The Voice in the US as a judge (talk about an inspiring mentor) – go, Team Alicia!

“ How I make l ove wo r k ”
(clue: it involves sandwiches)
his month I’ve been married four years. I know it’s not 53 years, like my aunt and uncle. Or 150 years, like the Queen and Prince Philip, but still, it’s four years. I think that’s quite a landmark. I wasn’t sure if I’d be any good at marriage, the whole thing terrified me, if I’m honest. Looking back, I’m not quite sure why that was. I wasn’t scared of relationships or the idea of living with someone. But it just felt like such a big deal, to have a legal contract with someone that you love, basically saying you can’t leave without a real ball ache. I didn’t get why you wouldn’t just be boyfriend/girlfriend forever, and know that if either of you changed your mind, you could just scoot. Turns out, I love being married. My relationship changed almost as soon
as I said, “I do.” Plans stopped being about ‘if’, but ‘when’. For the first time in my life, I could visualise a future for myself. There was this one thing that I knew would always be there (him), so thinking ahead wasn’t like staring into the abyss of possibilities. Getting married wedged my feet to the ground, but not in a way that tied me down physically. It just collected all of my insecurities, all of my fears, most of my wildness and a little bit of my ego and made them all settle comfortably into my soul. So getting married was great, and being married is really great, but it does take work. Being with someone ALL THE TIME is challenging. Being interested in each other, paying attention to each other, it all takes effort. But there are little things that you can do that make a big difference. Small gestures of niceness GLAMOUR

should sleep naked with all of your other friends, just your partner. Just to be clear. Zone your house. Personal space is crucial. This doesn’t have to be much, even just a chair each will do, but have your thing, and let them have their thing. And both respect those things. You need somewhere to retreat to that you feel is all yours, as does he or she. These items begin to speak for you. When my husband sits on his chair in the corner of the living room, I know he needs a minute. When I lie across the spare bed spooning my cat, he knows to take the dog for a walk. And finally, walk around holding hands. You might think that sounds dumb, but so many married couples don’t hold hands. It’s these tiny acts of affection that keep you close. Of course you have less sex, of course it’s hard to find time to just be together. So just do loads of little things. Like holding hands when you go for a walk. You could even stop for a Frenchie, and have the perfect sandwich packed for them in your bag. I recommend keeping your clothes on while you’re out of the house, though. Again, trust me.

are essential in a relationship, and here are my top five. Make the person you love a sandwich sometimes. And I mean that really specifically – not any old meal, a really great sandwich. Taking time and effort to create a truly bloody spectacular sandwich is a real sign of affection. When my husband does this for me, or I do it for him, we generally have a remarkably good afternoon. Kissing is really important. I mean a full-on, tickle-the-back-of-your-throat Frenchie. I have this theory that married couples don’t kiss, it’s the first thing that goes. Sex becomes kiss-less, or the kisses become functional. Remember snogging as a teenager, or when you were dating? Remember how hot and exciting it was? Well, it can still be all of those things. You have to Frenchie, but do it before the sandwich. I speak from experience. Sleeping naked is a great way to be intimate when the reality of life means you have a lot less sex. Sleeping naked means that even if you are too sleepy to hump, you still Married get a level of intimacy. Skin couples don’t kiss, it’s the ﬁrst on skin is vital in a marriage thing that goes. – without it, what are you? Mates? It’s great to be mates, Sex becomes kiss-less, or the but mates that sleep naked kisses become together are the best mates. That doesn’t mean you functional

Men, Sex & Love
YOU YOU YO U
7 da y s t o fi nd a d at e… IRL KATE LEAVER PUTS HER PHONE AWAY AND GIVES IT A GO
y sister met her fiancé sitting outside an apartment block in Edinburgh at 3am on a Sunday. It was around the time Tinder took off and we all started getting thumb cramps from swiping. I’m happily single and though I’d like my own romantic accident, I wasn’t sure they happened any more. So here’s what happened when I set myself a seven-day challenge to meet someone face to face.
Day 5 A lovely-looking man is reading a paper in my local café. I’ve seen him before. I spend so long staring at the back of his head, he gets up to leave. “Next time,” I whisper.
Day 6 Out to dinner with my family. My father is present, so the best I can do is smile at the cute waiter when I order. At the end of the night, I leave my name and number on a napkin because that’s the kind of thing I can do this week. The adrenaline rush feels great.
Day 2 I do something outrageous on my commute: I put my phone in my bag and make eye contact with people. As I’m getting on the Tube, I smile as flirtatiously as possible at a cute guy. He beams back at me. We make clear signs of mutual appreciation, the Tube doors close between us, I cast myself in a 2016 remake of Gwyneth Paltrow’s Sliding Doors, he disappears from my life forever. The lesson, though? Smile-flirt more. 58 GLAMOUR
Day 3 I have bad hair and a crisis of confidence. The only man I notice is Kit Harrington, inside my television, on Game Of Thrones.
Day 4 There’s a fancy party. I put my confidence outfit on. “It’s business time,” I tell my flatmate as I walk out. I speed-drink a cocktail and introduce myself to two men. We chat, and they both find ways to weave their girlfriends into the conversation. Still, I am hella proud of myself for speaking to people.
I go back to my local café in search of newspaper guy. He’s at a communal table, so I sit beside him and ask to borrow a section from his paper. I get that kick of adrenaline again and then, weirdly, our exchange genuinely feels comfortable. And it should, right? I’m just talking with another human being, what’s the worst that can happen? Once you’ve sneezed on a guy and thrown your number at a waiter, these real-life connections do get easier. Newspaper guy hands it to me and, in that moment, I decide that this is our first unofficial date. I’ll tell him about it if this coffee crush turns into anything more. It might not, but this week I’ve proved to myself that it’s possible to meet people IRL. You just have to find the courage to put your phone away – and speak.

On an evening stroll through Regent’s Park, I spot my first candidate: a beautiful young man sitting by himself, playing guitar. I’m surprised at how confident I feel as I wander over to him – maybe this won’t be so hard. Sadly, on approach, a wad of pollen wafts into my face and hay fever tears start rolling down my cheeks. My opening line is actually a sneeze. I shit you not; I sneeze, panic, ask him for the time, and retreat.
THE ONE I HAD TO PAY
My super shemances COMEDIAN AND TV PRESENTER OLIVIA LEE SHARES THE FRIENDSHIPS THAT CHANGED EVERYTHING
hat’s a shemance? Think bromance – but for women. Those rare connections we make with women throughout our lives. So, while our best friends are solid and constant, a shemance is like falling in uncontrollable friendship love. Shemances can also be brief – but their pure, honest connections can leave their mark on your life forever. Here are my favourite four.
At 30 I was living in LA with a great career but a car-crash love life. I started filming a show featuring a life coach called Charly. I ending up paying her to coach me and she didn’t hold back. “Stop blaming the men you meet for the drama, you’re creating it.” She had a mind so analytical, I wanted to lick her brain – and I swear it was thanks to her that I met my fiancé. A mentor who can be honest without causing offence and help you navigate life is a gift.
THE ONE I CAN’T GET RID OF THE ONE WHO DROPS THE BOMBS Last year, I had a ‘geriatric pregnancy’ [the medical term for a pregnancy at 35 or over], suffering with sciatica and carpal tunnel syndrome. Everything ached, but I kept my struggle hidden. Then I met Claire at my pregnancy class and straight away she announced: “I’m finding pregnancy to be a massive pain in the c***!” Yes, she dropped the C-bomb and a shemance was born. Finding a connection with a woman who’s going through a similar life-changing experience can save your sanity.
I met Jackie at school. We had an intense shemance until we fell out (over stickers). Ten years later we reconnected, until we fell out (over a boy). Five years later, we fell back into our heady friendship, until we fell out (over a dinner reservation). Even though our personalities clash, we have a deep love for each other. Jackie has shown me that some shemances really feel like a love affair. No matter how many times you break up, you just keep going back for more. And it’s always worth it.
THE ONE WHO’S GONE I spent my twenties getting shit-faced but pretending to my mum that I was a good girl. I couldn’t be the real me with my family until one day I told my gran about a guy I liked – and I’ll never forget her advice: “Be yourself, enjoy yourself, and shag him if you want!” So of course I went on to share everything with her. She never judged. And she left a legacy. When I feel self-conscious about making a move, I hear her wisdom: “Shag him!” and “Life is short, smile while you still have teeth.”

confessions from the UberPool
THE SERENDIPITOUS MOMENT “I once shared an eight-seater taxi with a group of people I’d never met, who were going to the same house party. Don’t ask me why (I was intoxicated), but when a hot guy sat in the row in front, I decided to push my finger in between the seats (think ‘E.T. phone home’) until I found his finger. I know: weird. But he didn’t flinch. In fact, we kept our fingers touching for the whole journey. We were inseparable from that moment on and now we’re married. Best taxi of my life.” Sophia, 29
THE RANDOM REUNION “I recently ordered a shared taxi to take me home from work and, when I jumped in, the other rider was my old friend Debbie. Debbie and I went to university together and hadn’t seen each other in seven years. SEVEN years. She lives in Singapore but was 62 GLAMOUR
in the UK on a business trip. What are the chances? That was also her first UberPool, too.” Jolie, 28
THE SING-ALONG “After a silent disco at The Shard, the only taxi I could call was an UberPool. I got chatting to two girls and a guy and when I mentioned that I’m a singer, they jokingly egged me on for a performance. They started clicking their fingers for percussion and suddenly the whole taxi broke into a full on sing-along. What’s more, the guy in the front was a music video director. He filmed it all on his phone and sent it to me. He’s lovely and we’re still in touch. A new pal and a contact – nice one, Uber.” Sonia, 27
THE UNLUCKY SLIP-UP “I was on my way to meet a blind date and feeling really nervous, so I spent the entire taxi journey panicking to my
friend on the phone. I also confessed that the guy didn’t even seem my type, as he came across as a douche over text. My taxi pulled up and the man I was sharing with also stepped out of the car. As we walked into the same bar, he turned around and asked: ‘Are you Jasmine?’ Yep, that was the shortest date I’ve ever had.” Jasmine, 27
THE GROSS ENCOUNTER “When a man and his cute Yorkie puppy got into my cab, I tried to make conversation but he just kept tutting and pulling his pup closer towards him. I gave up and sat in silence for the rest of the ride. As we approached my destination, the dog started coughing and gagging and when we stopped – as if on cue – it threw up on my lap. The owner had no remorse and the driver just shrugged. If only we could give passenger ratings.” Alexa, 24

That pain, explained WE ALL GET TWINGES – BUT SOME OF US ARE IGNORING PAINS WE SHOULDN’T BECAUSE WE THINK THEY’RE ‘NORMAL’. HERE ARE FIVE ACHES TO BE AWARE OF…
By Helen Foster. yorktest.com. To find a ViMove clinic, visit yourphysioplan.com. Mr Pisal is at london-gynaecology.com
D A I LY B A C K PA IN Feeling achy after a day at your desk or a Netflix binge? “Sitting in a position that aggravates your muscles can cause them to tighten, leading to inflammation and imbalances that affect posture,” says physiotherapist Andy Curtis. See a physio, or a new test called ViMove (available from £50 on top of any session costs at ViMove clinics) can help work out the problem, thanks to clever sensors you wear on your back. “After analysing the data, I might see that someone never twists left during the day because their office equipment is on the the right,” says Curtis. “Simply rethinking their desk layout might fix the issue.”
PAI N DU R I NG SEX We know an aroused vagina can make penetration easier. Sex before this stage can lead to the odd pang, but regular pain during or after is not normal. “We divide it into two types,” says Mr Pisal. “1) Surface pain, felt outside the genitals, often caused by an irritation like thrush or underwear. 2) Deep pain, which might have an internal cause such as fibroids (non-cancerous growths in or around the womb) or endometriosis (when tissue similar to the womb’s lining grows outside it).” Your GP can advise.
A HEADAC HE AF T ER WI NE
OV UL ATI ON PA IN About 20% of women feel twinging as they ovulate, usually on one side of the abdomen roughly two weeks after their period ends. “It can last a few minutes or a couple of hours – that’s normal,” says gynaecologist Narendra Pisal. “Some women feel mid-cycle pain when trying to conceive, as they are more in tune with their body.” But if it gets more and more painful, it might be an ovarian cyst. Sudden, one-sided cramping pain that lasts more than a few hours is also symptomatic of appendicitis. If you’re worried, call your GP or 111.
Normally, hangovers for women kick in the morning after 3-5+ units of alcohol (just over a 250ml glass of wine), but if you’re getting stonking head pain after a spritzer, you could have an intolerance. “Some alcoholic drinks contain preservatives and chemicals that cause headaches, even after one glass,” says biochemist Dr Gill Hart. She suggests keeping a diary of what you drink, to try to spot a pattern. YorkTest also offers a £299 blood test that checks your reaction to alcohol, right down to variety of grape.
POST- EXER C I SE AC HES Most muscle aches after a hard workout are so normal, it’s the reason #legday trends on Instagram. They’re called DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) and show that you’ve damaged the muscles in a good way that makes them repair, build and strengthen. “If you have a pain specific to one area – or that feels sharp and piercing, rather than an ache – get it checked,” says Curtis. It might be a pulled muscle, stress fracture or shin splints. All of these will repair themselves if you rest, so take the hint. GLAMOUR

“I want to beat inﬂammation” THE SPICE TURMERIC Why so super? “Turmeric's yellow pigments, especially curcumin, have an anti-inflammatory action,” says Ayurvedic practitioner Sebastian Pole. Power up “Add it dried or fresh to Asian dishes, smoothies and juices,” suggests Pole. Or try Turmeric Gold teabags (£2.25 pukkaherbs.com).
“I want to relieve nausea” THE SPICE GINGER Why so super? Whether it’s a bug or a killer hangover, make ginger your new BFF. “Fast-acting compounds called gingerols and shogaols can calm nausea,” says Stephanie Caley, of the National Institute of Medical Herbalists. Power up Grate into stir fries, soups or porridge. “For a nauseabusting drink, add 1cm sliced root to 500ml hot water,” says Caley.

“I want to burn fat” THE SPICE CINNAMON Why so super? This sweet-tasting spice helps regulate blood sugar. “This can keep cravings in check,” says Pole. “It improves insulin resistance and helps metabolise fat – studies have proven these effects in people with type 2 diabetes,” says NHS dietitian Gulshinder Johal. Power up Add a teaspoon or more to porridge, smoothies or baking. The sweet flavour makes it easier to slash your daily sugar intake.
“I want to outwit colds and ﬂu”
“I want to ease period pain”
THE SPICE GARLIC Why so super? “It contains the germ-fighting phytochemicals allicin and ajoene,” says Caley. One US study found taking garlic can protect against, and decrease the frequency of, colds. Power up “Allicin becomes active once garlic’s been cut – so if you’re adding fresh garlic to recipes, chop or crush it first – and leave for a few minutes,” says Caley. Not a fan of the taste? Try Hofels Odorless One-a-day Neo Garlic Pearles Supplements (£8.94 revital.co.uk).
THE SPICE FENNEL SEED Why so super? It can help PMS. Yes, really. Researcher Hassan Pazoki of Urmia University in Iran found symptoms reduced after eight weeks of taking fennel extract. “Fennel seeds are packed with essential oils that help relax muscle spasms,” adds Pole. “So they can help with all sorts of cramps, from menstrual to digestive to muscular.” Power up Drink strong fennel tea (Time To Digest tea, £4.50 caleysapothecary.co.uk) or make your own with 1-2tsp seeds (crushed to release the oils).

Keep it personal “Resist the urge to get right down to business when the meeting begins,” advises Rezvani. “People get more favourable outcomes in negotiations when they’re seen as likeable and there’s a perception of trust.”
Be mindful of your body language
IF YOU DON’T ASK, YOU DON’T GET. SO ASK
hat pay rise you’ve been dreaming about? It’s time to woman up and ask for it. Negotiating can feel daunting, but think of it as a muscle: the more you do it, the better you get. And it’s not about having a stand-out move. “Actually, the best negotiators don’t have one ninja move,” Selena Rezvani, author of Pushback: How Smart Women Ask – And Stand Up – For What They Want, tells GLAMOUR. “They see the world as being very much up for revision, and they don’t settle for less. There are always more options than we think.” Here are six more of her negotiating rules:
Do y our res earch “Be the smartest person in the room with regard to your request,” says Rezvani. “For example, if you’re asking for a flexible work arrangement, know all the facts about your company’s policies on the issue. You’ll often find you know more than the person sitting across from you, giving you an advantage.” 70 GLAMOUR
Be strategic with silence “Maintain five to seven seconds of silence with relaxed but engaged eye contact at two key junctures: right after you make your request, and right after you hear the response from your counterpart,” she says. “It levels the playing field every time.”
Ta p y o u r n e t w o r k “Professionals who network are significantly more confident at negotiation than those who network less frequently,” says Rezvani. “Your network is a gold mine of information about industry standards. Plus, this group will often embolden you to go for that thing you’ve been hesitating over!”
A n d a b o ve a l l e l s e , d o n ’ t r u s h “You can absolutely settle the negotiation in one meeting if you’re pleased with the terms,” says Rezvani. “But if you’re not happy, don’t you dare let anyone rush you. Deal-makers are incentivised to pressure you into giving a fast answer, but take the time to reality-check the offer with others who are in the know.”

“Stride in with a smile and friendly eye contact – don’t use apologetic, slouching body language,” says Rezvani. “I plant both elbows on the table in front of me, creating a box with my arms around my papers.”

YOU YOU YO U HOW I GOT HERE
Ann-Sofie Johansson ANN-SOFIE, 53, HAS WORKED AT H&M FOR 31 YEARS AND IS NOW THE BRAND’S CREATIVE ADVISOR Education
Designer, Ladies’ department, H&M head office, Stockholm
Arts Science Studies and Archaeology, Gothenburg and Lund universities
I moved from the teen department to ladieswear. As a designer, there’s lots to consider: moodboards, samples, fittings. The biggest challenge is having ‘hanger appeal’ and catching a customer’s attention instantly, but also retaining it long-term.
At school I wanted to be a vet, but my grades weren’t up to scratch. So, having always enjoyed painting, I decided to study art and art history. After completing both courses, I realised that I definitely wanted a creative career.
2008-2013 Head of design, H&M head office, Stockholm
I was in charge of the overall design direction, working with 140 designers. I learnt to balance listening to our customer with trusting my instincts. I remember when we first started selling skinny pants – they took ten years to become popular. You have to believe in your research, and yourself.
1987-1989 Sales assistant, H&M, Stockholm I set my sights on becoming a fashion designer. It was a big dream, but I read a careers feature about an H&M buyer who’d started there as a sales assistant. I applied for a job at my local branch, hoping that maybe it could be a stepping stone into the industry for me, too. Getting shopfloor experience was really valuable – it’s important to meet the customer and find out what they want.
2013-2015 I oversaw the special collections we show in Paris and our Conscious Collections – they can be more daring than our ready-to-wear ranges. I’d always been clear about my ambition, but my rise took time. Now, when we hire younger designers, I always say patience is key. Yes, it’s important to be passionate, but sometimes it’s about learning and playing it cool.
1990-1994 Design assistant, Young department, H&M head office, Stockholm I wanted to become a designer at H&M so badly that I plucked up the courage to write a letter to the then head of design, Margareta van den Bosch. She agreed to meet me – I showed her my portfolio, and she must have seen something in my work that she liked, as she then offered me a design assistant position.
2015 until present Creative advisor, H&M head office, Stockholm

It was such an honour to be named creative advisor. It’s such a fun job! I’m out of the office a lot more now – I travel lots, meeting press and acting as spokesperson for H&M. I look at the brand as a whole to see where we need to go next. Now, it’s about being a visionary.

a b reak-up When GLAMOUR’s Lisa Harvey got engaged, she thought she knew her ﬁancé inside and out. 12 months later, he broke her heart. She’s here to thank the people who picked her up, got her through and taught her some invaluable life lessons
he Mauritius rain was falling, the Champagne on our veranda was chilling, the waves were crashing. And, suddenly, there he was on bended knee: “Lisa Jenny Harvey... will you marry me?” He was holding an antique-inspired ring, the ring he’d spent months designing, with a huge smile plastered across his face. The smile that made me fall for him – the smile I’d loved for 12 years. Fast forward exactly one year to June 2015, three months before our wedding and, suddenly, there he is sitting at our kitchen table: “We’re not compatible. I can’t marry you,” he said, and I’d never seen his eyes so cold. I was stunned, shaken. I tried to ﬁght for him and us – he gave me about ten minutes. But then he walked out without saying goodbye, taking what felt like my last breath with him, and I never saw him again. I don’t really remember what happened
next. It’s all a blur of unbearable long days, deathly still nights, clutching hugs and a million confused questions. I’ll never forget the pain, though. It was constant and heavy – like I was crashing and falling at the same time. I couldn’t eat or sleep for days, and soon my whole body felt so broken, I was put on antidepressants and anxiety tablets to try and help me cope. He left me to cancel our wedding and, one night when I wasn’t there, his stuff disappeared from the house. No one could believe it and I couldn’t explain why. But later, friends saw him holding hands with a girl from his work and I guess I got my answer. “How am I going to get through this?” I asked my friend Sarah. “We’re going to get through this,” she said. “Together.” And she was right. In the months that followed, the shock, humiliation and grief hit like tsunami waves and hurled me into dark places that felt so far away from myself. But the kindness, support and love from others pulled me back. To some of those who helped, I have a few things I’d like to say.
to the s t ran ger …who came out of his house when he saw me crying. I was on my ﬁrst run after it happened. Weekend running had always been our thing. That day, I pictured him setting the pace: hood up, toned calves pumping away, every now and then spinning round – that smile again – saying, “Good job, ‘little’, keep going!” Then something inside ripped. He’s gone, he’s not coming back, he doesn’t care. I felt sick, dizzy and had to stop. I sat there on a kerb down your quiet road and the tears came. I didn’t think they’d ever stop. But then you were there, asking if I was OK. “Can I get you anything? Tea?” Flustered and embarrassed, I said, “No, thank you,” but that simple, kind gesture pulled me to my feet and I carried on running – for a really long time. Not quite a Forrest Gump milestone, but signiﬁcant enough to help me realise that I didn’t need him to keep going. GLAMOUR
to the guy …who forced me to take a compliment. After a holiday ﬂing in Hvar last August, I started going on dates. Why? For an escape; to keep moving forward; to ﬁnd my conﬁdence again – who knows? And it was fun, for a while. But deep down, I just couldn’t shake the negative stuff he’d said about me during the break-up. I’d trawl through memories, questioning the laughter, his emotional hand-written letters, our intimate conversations. Then you came along with your cute Irish accent and ﬂirty banter. #Flants, you called it. We messaged for weeks and you joked I was too busy hanging out with elephants in Sri Lanka to ever meet up, and we were destined to be pen pals. We weren’t. On our ﬁrst date we got perfectly pissed and talked for hours before kissing like teenagers at the Tube barriers. One sleepover at your ﬂat turned into ﬁve, then I lost count and then we were more than pals, not quite a couple. That wouldn’t have been right for me or fair for you. But somewhere between our crazy dates and random hashtags, something special grew and you lifted me. I’m still not sure what you saw in me – you said you liked my bum and how caring I was. Caring too much was used against me last June, so thank you for reminding me it’s actually a good thing. I’ll always be grateful to have met you, pal.
“ T h e person you lo v e d o e s n’ t e x i s t a ny m o r e”

to my niece
to the friend …who knows how it feels. Because a similar thing happened to you. “It’s easy to question your worth – don’t! This is not your fault,” you said. Sadly, his words haunted me for a long time, and I did feel worthless, but you took me on long walks, talked it all over with me and sent me funny videos of you dancing to Kanye. Whenever I couldn’t get my head around his lies, you understood because you understand the impact of words, too. And yours gave comfort. “You need to grieve – the person you love doesn’t exist any more.” “I want you to text me ﬁve things you’re grateful for.” “I’m always here (except last night, I was asleep, sorry!)”. I’m so thankful for that humour and honesty. Seeing the wonderful, wise, happy guy you are today gives hope to any broken heart.
…who was due two weeks before my wedding. After he left, I held out for your arrival. You were just four hours old when we had our ﬁrst cuddle and I’ll never forget that surge of happiness. It blindsided me. Your grandad said you’d bring the sunshine, and you did. When hard days followed – the ‘wedding’ day, Christmas Day, the day my mortgage went from two names to one – you were there with your sloppy chin kisses, giggling at my silly, high-pitched noises or stroking my hand while we watched In The Night Garden. Those precious moments soothed the pain and showed me that being an auntie is one of the best jobs in the world. I will actually give a round of applause (at work, on the train) after watching a Snapchat of you, say, eating broccoli for the ﬁrst time – and I couldn’t be prouder. Yes, Maisie, your timing was perfect. GLAMOUR
to my girls …who thoughtfully tiptoed, then charged, to my rescue. Straight away, you took me to Norfolk and wrapped me up in a cocoon of boat trips and Prosecco. Weeks later, you raced me around Sainsbury’s car park in a trolley until I couldn’t stop laughing. And when I’d say: “I think I need to get away,” you’d reply: “Anywhere you want.” Those holidays (Berlin, Barcelona, Sri Lanka, Ibiza) were my therapy, powerful examples that although I once couldn’t imagine life without him, here I was having new adventures and making happy memories. Another thing girlfriends do when hearts are broken? See through that “I’m OK” shit. Cue morning motivation messages, bedtime spoons, giving me spare keys to your ﬂat and turning up to paint my shed, stock my fridge or take me out-out. You reminded me that a) it’s OK not to be OK and b) this is what friends are for.
…who felt the pain, too. I’ve gone to write this letter so many times, and I just can’t ﬁnd the words to express my appreciation to each of you. From the moment he walked out, you were there – closing ranks and shielding me with Harvey strength. You held me, cried with me, carried me – and I felt your love everywhere I went. You have helped me remember that my sense of self didn’t come from him. That what he has done does not deﬁne me. That I will get through this. We recently had a Sunday lunch together. You were all chatting and laughing around the table, and I swear my heart could have exploded with love and gratitude right there. It was such an overwhelming feeling. ‘How lucky am I?’ I thought. You selﬂess, soppy, incredible lot are my life. I’m so sorry I was broken for a while, but I’m back now. 80 GLAMOUR
...for when you feel lost. You’re not. You’re exactly where you’re supposed to be. Think fondly of those years you had with him, but don’t be afraid to make him a memory. Remember when everyone kept saying: “Fuck! You’ve dodged a bullet,” and you didn’t want to believe it? It’s true. Yes, people fall out of love, but he has behaved badly, and you do deserve better. The life you’re living now – all those adventures and memories you’ve had since that awful day – is leading you to more happiness than you ever thought possible. And you have to believe it. You’ve come a long way from the girl who couldn’t pick herself off the ﬂoor – discovering an inner strength you never knew you had. Use your experience to help someone else’s pain and show them that, somehow, it does get better. Hold on to those awesome people who love you when those shitty waves hit, and look for something good in every day: a milkshake with Nan, beating your best time on a run, a thoughtful text, surprise ﬂowers or just sitting outside in your garden with the sun on your face. One last thing: do not worry about the future. You’re doing ﬁne. Just remember how big your heart is. Keep loving, keep living and stay strong. I know that you are. O

LOST. T ERRI FIED. MOMENTS
DE ATH. When Rachel Lloyd, 22, became stranded on a hike with her mum, Carolyn, 47, it was the start of a nightmare. This is their incredible story. As told to Katreen Hardt
ying on a bed of fern leaves in temperatures just above freezing, Mum held my feet in her lap, rubbing them with her hands in a desperate attempt to promote circulation. I felt nothing, even as she pounded them repeatedly with her fists. It had been four harrowing days since we’d lost our way in the wilderness, and my body shivered uncontrollably, trying to warm itself. As I drifted in and out of consciousness, I was convinced I had only a matter of hours left to live. Rewind less than a week to April 22, 2016, and Mum wept tears of joy as we hugged in the arrivals hall at Auckland airport after her long flight from Charlotte, North Carolina. It had been two months since we last saw each other and she could hardly contain her

excitement at the prospect of exploring New Zealand with her only daughter. We were both avid trekkers, and our plans included hiking an active volcano on Rangitoto Island. We had just five days together, and I wanted every minute to be amazing. I’d left home for New Zealand in February to pursue a degree in political science at Massey University in Palmerston North. Ever since seeing The Lord Of The Rings at the age of ten, I’d dreamt of travelling here. I was attracted to the country’s natural beauty, and envisioned that I would get married on top of one of its lush green mountains one day. On Tuesday April 26, Mum and I planned to hike the Kapakapanui Track in the Tararua Forest Park. It was a six- to eight-hour route and I knew it was going to be physically tough – it was listed as an advanced track for people who had moderate to high level backcountry skills – but the breathtaking view of the Tararua Range would be worth it. GLAMOUR
DAY 1: 11 H O U R S LO S T Dressed in trainers, trekking trousers, long compression tights, plus our light rain jackets over long-sleeved T-shirts, we set off on our walk at 9am, taking turns carrying my backpack, which was filled with 4.5 litres of water and snacks. Mum had insisted on bringing leftovers from her flight, like crackers, trail mix, peanuts, a package of cheese and some sweets. I remember being irritated, thinking it was way too much on top of the apples and peanut-butterand-jam and egg-salad sandwiches I’d packed. I didn’t want to be hauling any extra weight. We followed the orange markers, crossing 12 unbridged streams. The only people we encountered were two women heading back and a few guys who marched right past us and we never saw again. I had a sprained ankle, still recovering from an earlier injury, so I had to keep taking off my leg brace to prevent it from getting wet. I also had tendinitis and bursitis, an inflammation of soft tissue around the muscle in my heel, which I’ve been battling for years. Walking to the summit, I’d feel a sharp pain, but I felt confident I could make it. I’ve always been physically active, from lifting weights and running to playing competitive sports. I never let on that it hurt – I wanted Mum to enjoy the walk and not have to worry about me. Three hours later, we reached the top with its spectacular views of Kapiti Island way off in the distance. Mum was awestruck at the abundance of unspoilt nature. We stood looking out at Mount Hector, the highest peak in the area at 1,529m, with its memorial cross. I couldn’t have been happier. After eating lunch at noon we decided to head back and go to the car. The full trek is a loop with two paths, and we continued on in the right direction. But instead of

following the orange markers, we saw only blue ones, so I assumed they represented the second part of the trek. Within 20 minutes, the terrain became jungly and steep. At first, we laughed, thinking how crazy it was as we held on to branches so as not to slip down the muddy slope. Even when the last marker we saw simply pointed down, we thought it was funny. But ten minutes later, we realised there was no turning around. It had become physically impossible to climb back up. Suddenly, the seriousness of the situation hit. I took the lead, knowing Mum has a horrible sense of direction. I could feel the adrenaline pumping through my veins, fuelling my determination to get us to safety – it was all I could think about. Ducking under spiders’ webs, we skidded downhill. At one point, we were free-climbing along the side of a cliff, with rocks loosening beneath our feet, slamming into the river 200m below. We were terrified. We both knew how dangerous our hike had become. On a ledge, we checked our mobiles, but there was no service and I was shocked that I couldn’t even make an emergency call. By late afternoon, darkness had fallen and we had no choice but to spend the night – the riverbank still too far to reach. Although neither of us said anything, the circumstances were beyond confounding. Without warning, we were suddenly alone in the wilderness, scavenging for a place we could sit and feel safe until morning. We came to a tree jutting out from the cliff, overlooking a waterfall. Straddling it, we clung to one another for warmth as the temperature plunged, keeping each

other awake, so as not to slide off. We knew it wouldn’t help talking about how awful the ordeal was. Instead, we joked about how angry my dad, Barry, would be. I’ll never forget the moment Mum pulled out the cheese – and dropped it. In disbelief, we watched as it tumbled over the falls. It took all I had not to cry.
DAY 2 : 3 5 H O U R S LO S T Once we got to the river, we followed it downstream for hours, wading from one side to the other, unable to walk along its rough banks. The Kapakapanui Track starts at the river, so I felt sure that sticking to it would eventually bring us back to the car park. It was precarious – slick rocks wobbled at every step. At times, we were in up to our knees, the sound of the water thundering past. My mind would wander off, thinking over and over how things had gone so horribly wrong. I later discovered the blue markers we’d followed were in place for possum tracking and the next orange one had been up in a tree, which we’d overlooked. Mum kept calling to me not to take any risks. She’s the worst at trying to hide her feelings – which is one of the things I love about her – so I knew she was anxious, doing her best to stay upbeat. Then, early in the afternoon, I slipped and fell backwards, hitting my head. I wasn’t bleeding, but I was terrified I’d got concussion, because my head was pounding and I felt dizzy. Mum wanted to help, but I screamed at her to stay where she was, some distance behind me, so I could tell her where not to step. I was freezing cold, soaked from head to toe, and from then on, I couldn’t get warm. Soon, my legs were starting to feel stiff. My ankle was swollen and throbbing, which made it difficult to jump over rocks. I was in utter pain, while Mum was still physically strong. In a daze, we continued our trudge, savouring the taste of the three crackers we ate along the way, until we came across a field
where we could spend the night. Lying on fern leaves in 4°, we held each other tight and I felt like a child when Mum and I used to cuddle together in bed. It was so brutally cold. My body shivered and my teeth chattered so much that I could barely form a sentence. As the wind howled, making it impossible to sleep, Mum tried to soothe me by reminiscing about a recent trip we’d been on with Dad and my brothers, Josh, 28, and David, 25, to St Martin. How I wished we were there watching the sun set.
DAY 3 : 59 H O U R S LO S T At 6am, we set out again down the river. It felt like a maze – each snake-like bend taking us closer and then further away from the car park. It was frustrating. Still, I was determined to go on, despite having lost all feeling in my legs and feet. I believe you can do anything if you keep a positive attitude and stay mentally strong. But as it grew dark, Mum insisted that we stop. That night, in a grassy area near a forest, as Mum held my feet in her hands doing everything she could to warm them, I started to panic, thinking, ‘What if my feet have to be amputated? What if I die? How will I get Mum to go on?’ She loves her children more than anything in the world. She’d never abandon one of us. I was becoming incoherent, unable to pay attention, and my vision got cloudy. I’d blink and see stars or blurred shapes – it was weird. I remember vaguely talking about food, as we’d just eaten the last of our supplies, maybe five peanuts. We agreed Grandma’s
WHERE THEY WERE FOUND
DAY 4 : 8 3 H O U R S LO S T
“I wondered who’d break it to my best friends. I didn’t want them to hear about my death on the news”
I felt like my legs had been swapped for stilts as we plodded onwards, only to have to turn around after two hours, as the river had become too steep to navigate. The day before, we’d drunk the last of our water and had to keep reminding each other to drink from the river. I had no energy left and Mum heaved me onto her back. In stunned silence, we returned to the grassy area, crumpling to the ground in exhaustion. I thought of Dad and my brothers, wondering if they knew we were missing and thinking how frightened they must be. I’d told Dad and my roommates where we were going and when we’d be back. Surely, I thought, someone must have called the police by now. But if not, I wondered who’d break it to my best friends if we were never rescued. I didn’t want them to find out about my death on the news. As I lay there in a catatonic state, Mum had the idea of building two giant HELP signs using fern fronds and rocks. It’s all a bit of a blur, but I remember that it took her the rest of the day, because she’d make one letter and then run to check on me, try to get me to talk or shake me to make sure I was still breathing. I felt like a zombie. That night, Mum and I prayed together, not yet abandoning all hope that we might be found.
DAY 5: 95 H O U R S LO S T Shortly after midday on Saturday April 30, we heard the whirring of a helicopter approaching. Both of us screamed, and Mum jumped up and down, waving her arms frantically. I kept thinking I was hallucinating. But Rachel – safe and remarkably, ready to trek again
then the pilot scooped me up in his arms and carried me to the helicopter. It was overwhelming. We found out later that Dad had phoned the police, after having tried to call us several times. When Mum didn’t make her flight home on the Thursday, he knew for certain that something had gone terribly wrong. We were flown to Wellington Hospital, where I was treated for hypothermia, malnourishment and dehydration. I’d lost 15lb and doctors said I was hours from dying. When I rang Dad, he just babbled, unable to formulate words. Mum had a difficult time leaving my side for even a second. We’ve always been close, but this ordeal has certainly created a unique bond between us. Those first few nights in hospital, I’d hear the wind howling outside my window and have flashbacks that kept me awake. The sound of running water gave me the chills. It was hard saying goodbye to Mum when she flew home on May 8, but I still love New Zealand, now even more so. The people have been incredibly kind and I can’t thank the mountain rescue, police and hospital teams enough for their support. I’m volunteering with New Zealand Search and Rescue to help spread their message and make sure people are prepared when heading out for hikes. It’s because of them that I am here, and I’m so profoundly grateful to be alive. I won’t let this beat me. New Zealand is such a beautiful country and, as soon as I’m strong enough, I’d like to go trekking again – there are so many more mountains I’m determined to climb.

scrambled eggs and pancakes would be perfect about now. But by that point, I’d started to lose my appetite.

Lucy Walker, Fashion Editor, proves suits aren't just for the office
Suits are back (AND WE LIKE IT) Not just for the office, the two-piece is your new go-to for day, night, whenever. Laura Craik breaks it down PHOTOGRAPHS by PHILL TAYL OR
It’s 6.45am, and you’re rifling through your drawers. The bottom one is sagging due to your strange and unfathomable predilection for buying stripy T-shirts that look exactly the same as all the other stripy T-shirts you possess, and are crammed into said drawer in the hope that one day, you’ll pluck one out that will make you look as effortless as Stella Tennant. You know what you’re looking for, but it isn’t there. You’re looking for the T-shirt that goes with the skirt that goes with the cardigan that goes with the shoes you fancy wearing. Soon, it will be 7.15am and you will be late. Worse, you will be no more office-ready than you were this time last autumn, when you vowed to Streamline Your Wardrobe after reading Marie Kondo. Was it always this way? Searching for this many components to complete your office look? No, it wasn’t. Life used to be simpler, and the reason it used to be simpler was suits. Suits were our saviours because everyone needs to call on a uniform from time to time, whether they work in a formal office environment or a more casual one. Yet recent seasons have favoured ‘separates’ – jumpers with skirts, dresses with cardies, culottes with shirts. And while these combinations are creatively pleasing, they can also be a giant pain in the ass to get right. Not least when it’s 6.45am. Which is why it’s such tremendous news that suits are back
STYLED by CHARLOTTE LEWIS
this season. Partly as a reaction to the finickity nature of recent trends (we love you, maximalism, but not always when we’re in a rush) and partly as an extension of the androgynous aesthetic that we’ve come to know and love, the time feels right for suits again. We’re craving the crisp simplicity of Claire Underwood, the boyish appeal of Ruby Rose and the insouciant way Kate Moss rocks a tux for evening and suddenly makes her dresswearing contemporaries look a bit… basic. Happily, we can be all these types of women, because the new suits are as far removed from the “drab grey accountant” spectrum as it’s possible to be. Thanks to a slew of designers, they’re as imaginative as they are varied. Fancy a slouchy, roomy suit with shades of Sonny Crockett from Miami Vice? Try Bottega Veneta or Tibi. A softly tailored suit with a sporty twist? Well hello, Giorgio Armani. And if office-appropriate isn’t a concern (or if you work in an environment where nobody would look twice if you breezed in wearing a candy-pink brocade suit enlivened with GLAMOUR
green cabbage roses), then head to Gucci. If there is one designer pushing the suit this season, it’s Alessandro Michele, whose offerings run the gamut from sober check through to sexy lipstick red with contrasting black lapels. That’s the thing about these new suits: they, ahem, suit way more occasions than merely the office. Designers know, these days, that women are far too busy with the demands of modern life to come to work in one outfit, then go home to get changed into another. Who has the headspace? Who has the time? Which is why the best suits for autumn have one key thing in common: versatility. Think of them as a base from which to build as many different functions as your day requires. Tamp them down for daytime with a simple shirt or tee, then ramp them up for evening with a cami top, a drop earring and a skinny high heel (yes, they’re back again too). These new suits aren’t workwear. They’re more a way of life: designed to fit your life, wherever it might take you.

t ip Opt for a sheer blouse and a flash of skin to break up the look and avoid tipping into the gothic.
t ip Velvet is your new go-to for evening dressing. There are so many versions available that you can mix and match trousers and jackets to find your perfect shape.
The velvet suit D o m i n i q u e Te mple , Ju nior B e a u ty Editor
t ip Go all out and finish the look with a velvet bag. Look for interesting hardware or a rich green or burgundy. It’s all about opulence. 92
“I’ve long been obsessed with the famous YSL Le Smoking tux, and this is a modern twist on the classic. I love wearing velvet for an evening event – especially in a suit form”

The Gucci-inspired suit R eb ec c a Fear n, Ju ni o r Wr i t er
“I would never have thought to pair this khaki suit with a bright red ﬂoral shirt. I would wear this to the office with pared-down shoes and accessories, then dress it up for the evening with more jewellery”
t ip Opt for a statement shoe. At Gucci, the models wore socks with theirs, but we’ll leave that up to you…
t ip If you love the Gucci look, but the idea of a floral suit is a bit too full-on, then opt for a suit in a slightly off-kilter colour, worn with a statement shirt.
With this suit, the secret is in the styling: a bold blouse, over-thetop jewellery, a stand-out shoe. Bonus: if you get bored of being bold, dress the suit down with a simple tee or sweater.

Camel-hair jacket £905 and camel-hair trousers £660 both Barbara Casasola at Net-A-Porter; viscose rollneck £110 Atea Oceanie; patent leather boots £170 KG Kurt Geiger

“Suits are traditionally associated with menswear and I love that this is a sexy take, with the nipped-in jacket and slim-cut trousers” 94
t ip Caramel is the colour for A/W. Opt for a suit in this shade to breathe new life into the classic. Keep the cut simple and let the colour do the talking. Add a simple cream roll-neck, leather ankle boot and classic tote and you’re chic to go.

In praise of the
TR ASHY GIR L S ’ HO LID AY L
ike all great nights out, it started with a dare. The challenge: to break in to someone’s garden and skinny-dip in their swimming pool. The prize: legendary status among our group. On that balmy July evening, as the sun set over Cala d’Or, we eyed each other over the empty jugs of Sangria, wondering who would be brazen enough to go for gold. In the end, there were no winners. It turns out we were all legends. At 2am, high on laughter and life, all eight of us stripped off, held hands and leapt into a stranger’s pool. We stayed long enough to snap a photo, then sprinted – stark naked – back to our apartment. I still have that photograph. When I look at it, I can smell the chlorine, hear the shrieks of laughter, feel the breeze on my bare skin. That sun-drenched post-A-level fortnight, we shed more than our clothes: we waved goodbye to our inhibitions, to our childhood, to life as we knew it. We danced ’til daylight, then surfaced at midday, panda-eyed, hungover, happy. Girls’ holidays get a bad rap. We’ve seen the tabloid spreads ablaze with sunburnt casualties in puddles of vomit. We’ve watched the reality-TV shows filled with half-naked hot messes staggering down the strip. There’s no denying that trash-girl holidays epitomise the ‘go big or go home’ culture that has older generations choking on their tea. But
OK, so they get a bad rap, but there’s more to those heady weeks away than meets the (blurry) eye, says Corrie Jackson
for every horror story, there’s a life-affirming tale of female bonding; the likes of which you will never experience again. Nothing compares to your first all-girls’ holiday. It’s a seminal moment. The freedom, the intimacy, the giddiness. You are invincible, untouchable. You’re out of your comfort zone, navigating the rocky waters of female friendship in a foreign land. You have no idea what the future holds, but you know one thing: you are in it together. Trust me, you learn more about yourself on a girl-gang bender than you will at any other point in your life. Where else does ‘dinner’ comprise Ritz Crackers, a Kinder egg and a cocktail that comes in a fishbowl? Or a night out kick off with an air hockey competition and end with a karaoke crawl? Where else can you revel in your sheer girl power-ness? A gaggle of girls, away from home for the first time, are a force to be reckoned with. Sure, you may return battleweary and emotionally scarred, but you’re the stronger for it. Because the lessons you learn stay with you forever. The trashy holiday is the ultimate journey of self-discovery – a journey that just happens to involve snogging, stripping, sunburn and Sambuca. Here are the things you learn…
Sorry not sorry: Team GLAMOUR dusted off their best/worst #girlsontour snaps
HERE COME THE GIRLS
HOW TO ARGUE My God, the rows. Nowhere are fights more intense than when the giiirlz are on tour. No parents + alcohol + hormones = holy fucking moly. Arguments are loud and shrill. But they’re also short. You’ve saved for this holiday. There’s no time to dwell. In Cala d’Or, eight of us shared two rooms. We spent the first day fighting over who got to bunk in with whom. Who got the bed by the window. Who got the wardrobe. There were actual tears. It was the End. Of. Days. Someone picked up their suitcase and announced they were going home. By the evening, we’d shaken it off and were hugging on the dancefloor. THAT BOYS COME AND GO We had a no-blokes-inthe-room rule and, when one of our group flouted it, we threw her shoes off the balcony. The image of her Karen Millen-clad arse sticking out of a bush as she tearfully hunted for her gold platforms will stay with me until the grave. But that night gave us all a clear ‘hos before bros’ lesson – and it’s one we haven’t deviated from since. Also: you learn about love. Those with boyfriends bored the rest with starlit deep-andmeaningfuls, convinced we were going to marry them (we didn’t) and that it was true love (it wasn’t). TO LOVE YOUR BODY You spend more time naked than at any other point in your life. For some reason, getting nudy-rudy to belt out Dancing Queen on your balcony at 4am is a rite of passage. Yes, you’re drunk, but it’s more than that: it’s a primal letting-go. That trip was the first time I sunbathed topless; the first time I skinny-dipped; the first (but sadly not last) time I flashed my boobs while dancing on the bar. There’s something liberating about seeing each other’s bodies in all their glory, flaws and imperfections; knowing you are all different, but basically the same underneath. THE ART OF TEAMWORK You move as a pack. A particularly long night at a Spanish rave (dear God) culminated in a stumble home that involved taking it in turns to throw up while others held our hair. Then there was the day we hired go-karts and broke down on a remote dirt track. Nothing says ‘team building’ like eight hormonal basketcases failing to fix an engine in the midday heat. In the end, my friend Jen went for help. Ten minutes later, she reappeared, straddling a Harley she’d flagged down. Our saviour
turned out to be a sweaty Hells Angel called Pablo. Still, not all superheroes wear capes. THAT MEMORIES LAST A LIFETIME Decked out in matching blue T-shirts, we convinced the man at Gatwick McDonald’s that we were, in fact, the under-18 British swimming team. Cue: free Big Macs all round. In Cala d’Or, we karaoke-d our way through Hopelessly Devoted To You so many times, it became ‘our song’. We’ve since sung it at each of our weddings. THAT YOU ARE HILARIOUS Your dance routines are AWESOME. Your chat is EPIC. We met a group of German guys keen to learn English. When one asked which county we were from, we tweaked a letter and left them chanting, “We love K*nt” at the top of their voices (hey, I never said our humour was highbrow).
“You learn more about yourself ON A GIRL-GANG BENDER than you will at any other point in your life” HOW TO TALK ABOUT STUFF A girls’ holiday is a safe space to discuss anything. Men. Parents. Sex. Insecurities. Death. Love. My friend Ceri says: “I don’t have a sister, so this is how I learnt about everything. It was like an extended sleepover. All my insecurities, I realised you had, too.” Also: honesty. This is the trip where your friends politely point out that your Kookai jumpsuit gives you raging cameltoe (thanks, guys). Now I’m 36, my girls’ holidays have evolved. Instead of week-long benders, they’re snatched hen weekends and minibreaks. But the same exuberant ‘fuck it’ vibe endures. Sure, there’s (slightly) less nakedness, and yes, the hangovers are harder, but for one blissful weekend, you’re not a wife, a mum, a daughter, or an employee. You are you. Surrounded by your people. It’s almost 20 years since that pool photo was taken. But when I look at it now, at our Cheshire Cat grins and mascara-stained cheeks, it’s as if time has stood still. We’ve lived through weddings and kids, divorces and heartbreak. One of us lives in Singapore, another in New York. We don’t see nearly enough of each other. But one thing’s for sure: we’ll always have Cala d’Or.
HERE COME THE GIRLS
G I R L S ON T OU R the memory I’ll never forget “On my post-A-level trip to Magaluf, my friends challenged me to a dare. They paid me £50 to lick the belly button of the most disgusting man in the club. Which I did. Twice, because the camera didn’t work first time around.” Emma, 29, Merseyside
“We skinny-dipped in the sea in Turkey, and a group of boys nicked our clothes, so we had to run home naked. We repaid them the next day by swapping their sun cream for body lotion. C-r-i-s-p-y.”
Lucy, 29, Cardiff
Lottie, 32, Wiltshire
“We were in Magaluf in the summer of 2009 and my friend Jules and I left our 18 other mates at a pool party and went off to McDonald’s for some midnight munchies. As I was queuing for my Happy Meal, I got tapped on the shoulder, turned around and there was a random smiling guy from Manchester bent on one knee. He proposed right there and then – the most romantic proposal I’ve ever had (perhaps because it’s the only one… yet!).” Alice, 25, Edinburgh
“My first girls’ holiday, to Kavos, was a total disaster. On the second night, we played a particularly brutal game of Truth or Dare, and it came out that one friend had had sex with another friend’s little brother. We were 23 and he was 17. She refused to speak to her for the rest of the holiday, which was mega awks as we were all sharing a room.” Laura, 28, Manchester
“On our last night in Croatia, we’d had three hours’ sleep but had to get up early for our flight. At the airport, I thought I was going to faint and asked to see a paramedic. He looked at me and said, ‘I diagnose too much fun’ – which became the catchphrase of our holiday.” Delilah, 30, York
“The paramedic looked at me and said: ‘I DIAGNOSE TOO MUCH FUN,’ which became our holiday catchphrase” “One of the girls sunbathed topless and burned herself so badly, she had to spend two days floating on a rubber ring in the pool, breasts dangling in the water.” Ayesha, 34, London
“On a ski trip to St Anton, our plumbing broke, and we all ended up drinking water full of sewage and getting the lurgy. By the time we recovered, we were so overexcited we overdid the Flaming Sambucas at the Mooserwirt après-ski bar. The problem was it was halfway up the mountain and we had to ski down. In the end, we slid down on our bums.” Natalie, 31, Edinburgh
“We went to Ibiza for my 21st and my friends surprised me with a stripper. Unbeknown to them, I’d taken my knickers off in the toilet during the meal because I’d decided I had VPL. When I had to straddle the stripper, in front of an entire bar, my dress rode up to my waist and, put it this way: everyone saw what I’d had for dinner.” Sarah, 27, London O Corrie Jackson’s novel Breaking Dead is out now

COULD A FESTIVAL CHANGE YOUR LIFE? IT’S THE GATHERING WE KNOW LEAST ABOUT. AS BURNING MAN CELEBRATES ITS 30TH ANNIVERSARY, ‘BURNER’ BEATRICE HODGKIN REVEALS THE TRUTH ABOUT THE WORLD’S MOST BIZARRE PARTY
2014’s Embrace sculpture going up in flames at the end of the festival
I’m not sure what I thought a typical Burner was before I went to Burning Man. Someone who sprinkles MDMA on their cereal? A naked yogi? An anticapitalist activist? All three? Whatever it was, I didn’t think I fitted with any of these stereotypes – despite loving Beatrice gets her festival on festivals, dressing up and dancing ’til dawn. The first time I went, in 2012, I was single and up for an adventure with two girlfriends, that was about it. But it was completely different from anything I’d ever imagined. As the seven-day festival that pops up in the Nevada desert to create Black Rock City (population 67,000, including an eclectic selection of celebrities: Susan Sarandon, Cara Delevingne, Katy Perry, Suki Waterhouse, Karlie Kloss, Jared Leto...) celebrates its 30th anniversary this month, the myths only multiply, like needing to bring a small reservoir of water with you, for fear of being left for dehydrated dead. But for most true Burners, it’s both a hedonistic fiesta and a joyful alliance of ten founding principles – from radical self-expression to devotion to acts of giving. These make it as much about discovering a new side to both yourself and life, as partying your pants off – in most cases quite literally. But I say this as a convert. And believe me, it didn’t begin that way. While obviously excited, I arrived full of Londoner scepticism. As we turned off the winding rural desert road in our three-person camper van onto a dusty plain edged by mountains, we joined one of several interminably long queues. It was excruciating: four hours of impatience
mingling with feverish anticipation so intense we could barely speak. At the main gates – a row of ten mini teepees – we were beckoned outside by a ‘greeter’, a feather-breasted hippie who proclaimed us “Burning Man Virgins” by banging a gong. My cynicism kicked in: cringe. I was then invited to do a dust angel on the ground, to which I petulantly screwed up my nose, refused and conceded to merely having a dust bindi. I look back on that uptight attitude, and that’s what I now cringe at. But in my defence, Burning Man’s exuberance is so overwhelming – wonderfully, intoxicatingly, bamboozlingly so – it can be hard to get to grips with at first. I’m in awe of those newbies who can throw themselves in from day one, but for me it took a few days. First there was the nakedness – there’s even a name for men wearing a top only: shirtcocking. Then there’s the hyper creativity – theatrical fancy dress is a uniform (you’ll feel ridiculous in normal clothes). Art is everywhere – here, a giant bull made of desert dust seemingly drags itself, Greek-mythstyle, out from under the ground; there, a 26ft-high mobile steampunk octopus blows fire from its tentacles. And every action, no matter how mundane, is an artistic expression. To get from one side of the festival to the other, we once jumped into Bikes are the way to get around Burning Man
a golf-buggy-sized set of wind-up teeth, which gave us a lift. The most memorable taxi ride I’ll ever have. At night, the desert playa becomes a fiery mass of lights: a snapshot of one of our nights might show a neon shark the size of a bus filled with people dancing crossing paths with an illuminated-by-fairy-lights Little House On The Prairie-style front porch being pulled along by a vintage tractor. Or Beats a Saturday my favourite: three guys in white fur night down the coats cruising along on motorised, local pub, no? illuminated surfboards.

What followed was spinning golden mannequins was real a fireball of a euphoric celebration. My eyes and ears or not was particularly memorable. almost hurt at the continuous explosion of flashing I also spotted a group doing shots lights, pounding music from different art cars, fireworks, of mouthwash into which MDMA flamethrowers, and illuminated people dancing wildly had supposedly been dissolved, and as flames slowly travelled up the legs of the Man, fishing smuggled bags of powder becoming hotter, more vicious, and more dramatic. out of jars of peanut butter.

People further w just giving me things to make me happy? Surely drugs there was a catch? Gifting is perhaps one of the most misunderstood principles; often people think Burning Man involves trade-offs, as there’s famously no exchange of money. But ‘gives’ are simply people giving you amazing things – for us, this included face painting, hugs (we stumbled across a ‘hug deli’ where I ordered a bear hug with a side of spank – painful!), and cocktails. Our ‘gives’ back to the festival were small but fun: the world’s smallest kites, which we ordered in bulk from a designer in Ireland. We also bought grapes and chocolate-

One night, we got completely lost, cycling round in circles, barely able to see our hands in front of our faces – eventually taking refuge in a 1980s rave tent. A happy accident, you could say, we were still there an hour after the storm passed, drinking vodka slushies and dancing like fiends to Billy Joel. This randomness is also key to Burning Man’s allure. Unlike most festivals, where you have a series of stages with line-ups, here, it’s the festival-goers that bring the entertainment, and while there’s a BM book listing lots of activities – from the fabled naked yoga to roller disco – the experience is much more serendipitous. And, because our phones had no reception and we never had to be anywhere at any one time, we utterly lived in the moment. As a result, our conversations with strangers were rarely the typical “What do you do?” or “Where do you live?” I ended up in a deep discussion with a handsome self-confessed nymphomaniac about why he’d become celibate, and had a long debate with a leather-clad roadie about whether flies or mice were more morally reprehensible. The nearest thing I can compare the overall fearmeets-freedom experience to is falling in love. You know something significant is happening and it’s terrifying as hell. You tense, but eventually take your foot off the bottom and boom: you’re lost, and it’s amazing. So much so that I went back two years later, despite the crippling cost (you’re looking at £3,000-£4,000), the insane amount of prep (up to a year if you want to reserve the cheapest RVs and flights and guarantee tickets), and the LONG way to get there (48 hours minimum if you are coming from Europe). My second experience was very different from my first. This time, I went with my boyfriend and met up with three of his friends to create our own informal mini camp – one RV (with shower and kitchen), a tent and removal truck. Going as a couple is a bold call; a make-or-break trip. For

us, it was make – but not without a few hiccups along the way. In fact, when we arrived, a couple told us how cute we were in our matching all-in-one pop-art banana Lycra outfits, and urgently pressed a fauxdiamond engagement ring on my finger, saying we should get married. As it had the awkwardness of a borrowed too-small bikini, I swiftly slipped it off. But my boyfriend secretly snaffled it, and that’s what he proposed with six months later. For me, shrugging off my everyday self and embracing a more open, curious, friendly, participatory, brave and self-reliant attitude was a revelation; OK, it didn’t radically change my life, but it definitely gave me a new perspective. This more engaged, bolder side is something Burning Man helps unleash by giving all festival-goers a ‘playa name’ – kind of like an alter ego. Anyone can give you one: mine, given by a barebreasted earth mother (naturally), was Cherry Poppins, and there’s still a bit of me that channels Cherry when I feel too stuck in my ‘normal life ways’ thousands of miles away from the playa. She’s the one that makes me smile at strangers on the way to work instead of just walking eyes-down; makes me book the holiday that’s out of my comfort zone instead of the one I’ve been on before; or think, ‘Why not dare to wear that spandex glittery catsuit?’ Because you never can have too much metaphorical glittery spandex in your life, that’s for sure.

This was the season we said goodbye to Hedi Slimane, Saint Laurent’s controversial creative director. The designer stepped down from the prestigious role after four years, having revitalised the brand and more than doubled its sales. First, he changed the name, then gave the label a makeover – making it appeal to a much younger customer and creating desirable sell-out pieces (despite their sky-high price points). It was a very specific idea of cool, and one with deep roots in the ’90s grunge scene. He has since been replaced by Anthony Vaccarello, a former protégé of Donatella Versace.
Plaid is back. Keep it masculine and opt for tailored pieces, looser shapes and outerwear.

Want the scoop on fashion’s hot new names? Meet New York label Sies Marjan, which debuted this season. Helmed by ex-Dries Van Noten alumnus Sander Lak, its collection of easy pieces in vivid colours and blossom prints had the Frow very excited. Molly Goddard has a very different appeal – think defiantly girlie dresses in puffy tulle, covered with frills and embroidery. Then there’s Amie Robertson, whose eclectic catwalk debut (starring Georgia May Jagger, Lineisy Montero and Edie Campbell) was attended by Marc Jacobs and styled by Katie Grand. Not bad for a newcomer.

A/W16 saw Demna Gvasalia reign supreme. The designer made his name as the mastermind behind French cult label Vetements, known for its twisted take on utilitarian classics – from the DHL logo T-shirt to its ‘justin4ever’ hoodie. This season, Gvasalia’s star rose even higher after he made his debut at Balenciaga. It was a big punt for the label, hiring such a relatively young name, but the risk paid off. Gvasalia acknowledged the structured aesthetic of the brand, but it never felt retro – in fact, it was very modern. Thanks to Demna, everyone will be wearing puffa jackets and patchwork dresses next season.

EXPERT ADVICE FROM OUR BEAUTY DIRECTOR, ALESSANDRA STEINHERR. THIS MONTH: BUDGET-SAVVY SKINCARE
SOOTHE For thirsty skin: Thermal Spring Water £7.50; For congested skin: Serozinc £8.50 both La Roche-Posay
o it’s no revelation that I’m skincare obsessed and tend to write mostly about this subject. And being a beauty journalist who gets to trial pretty much everything, I admit I look out for ingredients, efficacy and results rather than the price tag. However, I’m also aware that budgets vary – so here are the penny-saving products I keep in my cabinet.
Gentle Skin Cleanser £8.99 Cetaphil – the best all-rounder I have ever found.
Low-Molecular HA Booster £18 Hylamide – I’m obsessed with hyaluronic acid to keep skin hydrated (for all skins), and this is one of the best.
ALL SKINS MOISTURISER Vitamin E Moisture Cream £12 The Body Shop – I’ve loved this gel-cream forever. It’s ultra light and great under make-up, too.
O I LY S K I N MOISTURISER Visibly Clear Oil-Free Moisturiser £4.25 Neutrogena – it’s tough to find a non-greasy moisturiser. This one ticks all the boxes.
Follow Alex on Instagram: @alexsteinherr
Vitamin C+ Brighten Dark Circles Eye Cream £12.99 Super Facialist By Una Brennan – under-eye shadows are tricky to treat, but vit C helps to improve radiance.
Regenerist Luminous Skin Tone Perfecting Serum £19.99 Olay – this dark-spotfighting serum gives results to rival way pricier alternatives.
And one at-home investment that saves me forking out for insalon skin healing and regenerating red-light therapy: lightstim.com

Chloë calls it… …exactly like it is. Miss Moretz tells Celia Walden why she’ll always be found speaking up – and kicking ass P H O T O G R A P H S b y JA N W E LT E R S FA S H I O N D I R E C T O R K A R E N P R E S T O N
Jacket, top and skirt all Isabel Marant
ne Tuesday in late June, Chloë Grace Moretz embarked on a Twitter rant against trolls that elevated her to demigoddess status in celeb land – and earned her a supportive text from her boyfriend’s mother. “We’ve been through a hundred different things,” Victoria Beckham wrote to Moretz in response to her multi-Tweet diatribe against the haters who scattergun vicious judgements about stars across social media, “and people will spin you a hundred different ways, but just keep your head up, because you’re beautiful the way you are. And these are just unhappy people.” “For her to say that meant such a lot to me,” says the face of Coach’s new fragrance weeks later, leaning back on her chair in a hip LA bar. “Because she’s seen it all.” Moretz has seen a fair amount, too – for a 19 year old. After all, the Georgia-born daughter of a plastic surgeon and a nurse made her ﬁrst small-screen appearance at the age of seven, won her ﬁrst movie role just a year later – and has since worked her “ass off” to earn herself a reputation as one of the most exciting young talents in Hollywood. Then there’s her relationship with Brooklyn Beckham, whom she met two years ago at SoulCycle. “And one of the reasons dating him is great is that we both get what it means to have our lives twisted and torn apart and faked,” explains the If I Stay and Bad Neighbours 2 star, sucking her iced coffee noisily through a straw. “Sometimes, we’ll just look at each other and laugh. Like the other day, when I said: ‘Apparently, we’re engaged,’ and he took a picture of the ‘ring’ and sent it to his mum, saying, ‘The rumours are true!’ But seriously, you don’t know how often I’m just described as ‘his girlfriend’,” she chuckles, oozing attitude in a Saint Laurent biker jacket, wine-red leggings and a battered pair of Adidas – her beautiful, full-lipped face free of make-up, her hair a beachy mess. “And you think: ‘well, I’ve also been acting for 13 years, but don’t worry’.” It’s that feistiness – a word Hillary Clinton, for whom Moretz campaigns, used to describe the actress when the pair ﬁrst met three years ago – that has distinguished her from her more docile counterparts from the start. Known for always turning down overtly sexualised roles and refusing to be cast as mere ‘plot device’ female characters, Moretz has also consistently been vocal in her opinions in an industry where people are advised not to be. “There was deﬁnitely a moment in my life when I had to decide whether I wanted to be that outspoken woman or just get on with my acting career

” it’s just about starting a conversation
doesn’t matter if people don’t agree with you,
ut my brothers and my boyfriend are amazing, and feminism for me has always just been about equality: me being worth exactly the same as my male counterparts, but not more than them – unless what I do is of a higher quality. And I think a lot of women now use the word in the wrong ways,” she insists. “So, I’m all for body conﬁdence, but there is a line in the sand, and some women need to understand that when they go so far in a particular direction, it actually makes things harder for us.” It’s safe to assume the actress is referring to the Twitter spat she had with Kim Kardashian West in March this year, after the reality-TV star Tweeted a nude selﬁe that was brazen even by her standards. “I truly hope you realize Continued on p194
in a very quiet way,” she tells me. “‘Do you really want to stir the pot?’ I’d get asked early on. And once I’d thought about it, I decided that, yeah, actually, I do. Because that one person who speaks out ignites millions of other people to speak out, and when young women come up to me and say, ‘You helped me do or say X, Y and Z,’ that justiﬁes it. It doesn’t matter if people don’t agree with you,” she shrugs, “it’s just about starting a conversation.” It should be pointed out here that well before the actress had decided to become that rare animal, a vocal actor with well-informed opinions, Moretz’s dark ﬁlm choices – as child assassin Mindy Macready in Matthew Vaughn’s Kick-Ass 1 and 2, vagabond Little Ann Sliger in Ami Canaan Mann’s Texas Killing Fields and a rebellious teen in Tim Burton’s Dark Shadows – had already attracted controversy. But it wasn’t until later, she tells me, when she was playing the lead in the 2013 Carrie remake, that she decided what kind of a woman she was going to be. “I had a female director, and although we both had more experience than most of the men on set, we realised that we were just not being listened to. And yet I deserve a level of respect. So, I guess that was when I decided to stand up for who I am.” Only standing up for herself wasn’t enough for Moretz – the youngest of ﬁve, who says she owes much of her grit to her four older brothers (Brandon, Trevor, Colin and Ethan) and gutsy single mother, Teri. She wanted to stand up for anyone and everyone who has ever been marginalised or treated unfairly: gay people, ethnic minorities – and yes, of course, women. “But that doesn’t mean hating men. Men are amazing, and I have so many wonderful men in my life. I have bad men, too…” she says suddenly, before heading off any further questions with, “… and that’s a whole other conversation.”

how important setting goals are for young women, teaching them we have so much more to offer than just our bodies,” Moretz wrote – only to have Kardashian swipe back: “Let’s all welcome Chloë Moretz to Twitter, since no one knows who she is.” Five minutes in Moretz’s company will tell you that neither “slut shaming” nor “body shaming” – both of which Kardashian’s camp subsequently accused the star of – is her style. Having grown up in a world where every perceived inadequacy is picked over, the actress has spoken candidly about her own body-conﬁdence issues. And if she could have her way, she admits, every hashtag would be #LoveWhoYouAre. But that’s easier said than done, particularly when you have been told, as she was by industry players she won’t name, that you need to look a certain way in order to succeed. “I used to get told to change my teeth all the time, because I had a gap,” she says, “and I was told that to help give me more of a waistline, they could take out some ribs. Also, I had some acne when I was younger, so there was a lot of pressure to deal with that.”
ittle wonder that at 16, Moretz was beset with insecurities and begging her mother to let her have “a boob job, the fat pad beneath my chin removed and a butt reduction. But luckily, my mum and my brothers never let me get caught up in all that,” she laughs, before growing serious once again. “Because, although I do own my insecurities now, I still have days where I’ll look at a picture of myself and wonder if I should change up my diet or my training. But I’m only 19! So, I ﬂuctuate a ton – and I want to be able to go out and have three slices of pizza with my friends occasionally. Only when I was growing up I saw people doing all sorts of crazy diets and I decided I wanted to read up on things and do what was healthiest and most obtainable for my body type. So, I’m never going to be Keira [Knightley – Moretz’s co-star in the 2014 romantic comedy Laggies]. I just don’t have her body type, but I can be the best my body can be through training and eating cleanly. And that doesn’t mean a 500-calorie-a-day diet, by the way, because you shouldn’t ever be going beneath 1,200. And sure, you can go on a juice cleanse if you want, but be under no illusions: you are starving yourself. That and moving water weight around.” Three years on, Moretz is grateful her family refused to let her consider any kind of surgery. “If I had done any of those things I wanted back then, I wouldn’t know who I am today. Anyway, you shouldn’t be allowed to have plastic surgery before you’re an adult. But what’s so hard about this industry is that, after a while, the acting becomes a very small part of a very heavily

healthiest and most obtainable for my body type
omething tells me her 2015 presentation won’t be Moretz’s closest brush with an Oscar in years to come. Certainly, if the hype surrounding the forthcoming drama Brain On Fire – in which the actress plays the real-life American journalist Susannah Cahalan, who suffered a rare brain disorder – is anywhere near deserved, the actress may not have to wait long for a nod from the Academy. “It’s deﬁnitely the hardest role I’ve ever done,” she explains, “but also the one I’m proudest of, because it really highlights all the misconceptions people have about mental health.” And, of course, she’s about to start work on Richard Curtis’s much-anticipated adaptation of the Hans Christian Andersen classic The Little Mermaid. “We don’t yet know if she’s going to be a redhead,” she smiles, when I ask, “but one thing is for sure: although all the lightness of the original story will be there, it’ll be a progressive story for and about the women we now need to see more of – not one about a girl who leaves everything behind for a man.” And, with that, she slips on her shades and heads out of the door. O
calculated [public] role. When what matters most isn’t my branding or my looks or my boyfriend, but my acting. And if I love a part, I will work my butt off to make sure I get it.” Which is not to say Moretz doesn’t enjoy the accoutrements of fame: her collaboration with luxury bag and clothing brand Coach, for example – for whom she has been an ambassador for the past two years. “Because Stuart [Vevers] is such a great designer and I think we both found inspiration together about who the Coach girl really is and what the brand means. So, it’s not just about posing in front of the camera; it feels really personal to me.” She also laughingly admits to enjoying her show-ponying stints on the red carpet, giving me a little high-pitched whinny just for effect. “Because you totally are a show pony at those things. I’ll even joke with my mum when I’m getting ready: ‘Brush the show pony’s hair. Put the new saddle on.’ Of course, you get paraded around, but at something like Cannes [where Moretz walked the red carpet in 2014 alongside Juliette Binoche for Olivier Assayas’s critically acclaimed drama Clouds Of Sils Maria], it’s so fun. And you don’t have to play by the rules – you can mix it up and refuse to wear heels or, like Victoria, wear trousers, which I loved. But when I walked down that red carpet, I felt like a princess.” And the Oscars? “I mean, if anyone had told me at six years old that I’d be presenting at the Oscars,” she exhales deeply, “I would never have believed them.”

LASH IT “If you’re going to wear blue mascara, really go for it,” says Kirstin. Here she used Mascara Vinyl Couture in I’m The Trouble £25 YSL Beauty. Keep the rest of the face bare, save for a peach flush on cheeks (Lip & Cheek Bloom in Orange Blossom £24 Burberry). Swimsuit by Heidi Klein
Bl ue : the new DO SUMMER’S HOTTEST MAKE-UP TREND IS EASIER THAN YOU THINK. BY ALESSANDRA STEINHERR
lue has undoubtedly won this summer’s make-up popularity contest. It was all over the S/S16 shows and it’s now vying to be all over our eyes and nails. A traditionally tricky shade, blue is undeniably the coolest hue to be seen in right now – and, besides being fun to
wear, it is prettifying, too. “Blue suits so many people, because there is such an array of tones,” explains make-up artist Kirstin Piggott. “From royal blue to baby blue to turquoise, it’s more about finding the right shade for your skintone, rather than your eye colour.” Here are six ways to ace it.
FL OAT IT You might think that liner in the crease seems so unwearable, it’s one of those looks best left on the catwalk. But how pretty does it look here? (The secret is to follow your natural socket line.) The vibrant cobalt blue liner and lashes (Eye Pencil in 3 £20 Yves Saint Laurent and Diorshow Mascara in Pro Blue £25 Dior) pop against ultra-bare, fresh skin warmed up with a pretty pink flush on cheeks and lips (Lip & Cheek Bloom in Rose £24 Burberry).

SMOKE IT How do you twist a classic smoky eye to make it fresh, rather than sultry? You substitute deep tones for turquoise. Kirstin dusted Lid Pop in Aqua Pop ÂŁ15 Clinique across lids and all the way above the socket with a dome brush, then smudged it along the lower lashes. She teamed it with black mascara to make it more wearable. Swimsuit by Alexander Wang
WING IT Take a cat eye and swap out your regular black for a crisp celestial blue (Sketch Marker in Sky Blue £17 Too Faced) for a modern twist on the ultimate cool-girl staple. Team with Nail Lacquer in Fearlessly Alice £12.50 OPI on fingers.
NAIL IT Not everyone is a pro at nail art and, frankly, thereâ€™s no need to be when you can paint your fingers with this tropical metallic aquamarine to make you feel all summery. Polish in Blue Vintage ÂŁ13.50 Nailberry Swimsuit by Eres
LINE IT Bright navy blue inside the lower waterline is the chicest way to wear this summer’s must hue. So deep it’s almost a neutral, it has the bonus of making the whites of your eyes appear brighter. And it’s a quick and easy look – just line inside the bottom lashes with Magnif’eyes Eye Shadow Kohl Kajal in Dark Side of Blue £6.99 and brush on two coats of Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara in Black £7.99, both Rimmel London.

Two sisters, one life-changing diagnosis It happened to their mother. They never imagined it could happen to them. Presenter Zoe Hardman (left), 33, and her sister, Kathryn Price, 35, knew their mum had gone through early menopause – but they had no idea just how much the condition would impact their own futures.

As told to KERRY POTTER PHOTOGRAPHS by RETTS WOOD
KATHRYN Our mum went through early menopause at 42, and our grandma did at 44. We never sat down and discussed it, but Mum would make passing comments in our twenties, like, “I wouldn’t wait too long to have children if I were you.” ZOE You think, ‘It’s fine, I’ve got plenty of time to meet someone and have a baby.’ I wasn’t interested in settling down in my twenties – it was all about adventures, travel and career.

it did, I figured it didn’t happen to Mum until she was in her forties, so I would have until then, too. I thought, ‘As long as I have kids before I’m 40, I’ll be fine’ – which was in tune with how most of my friends felt.
Symptoms overload The average age of menopause – when a woman’s ovaries stop releasing an egg each month and her periods end – is 51, but 1% of women experience it before the age of 40, and 0.1% before the age of 30. This is known as early menopause. Most cases are unexplained, some have a genetic link, and some are medically induced, as a result of treatment for illness – chemotherapy, for example, can trigger it.
“S o m e t i m e s , I t h in k, ‘ Why m e? What have I d o n e? ’ ”
K Last February, my husband, Tom, and I came back from our honeymoon in Zanzibar and decided to try for a baby (I was 34). I came off the Pill, which I’d been on for almost 20 years. I started feeling awful straight away, with mood swings and hot flushes. I’d only sleep for about four hours a night, as I’d keep waking up, pouring with sweat. It was like I was cooking from the inside out. I work for an expedition company, and some days I felt so dizzy I couldn’t drive to work – luckily, I had a very understanding boss who let me work at home. I also had joint pain, especially in my hands. I didn’t know what the hell was going on with my body.
The diagnosis K Our mum said, “I hate to say it, but it sounds like menopause.” My GP thought it was malaria, given that we’d just come back from Africa. The tests [for malaria] came back negative, and after I’d done some panicky Googling of my symptoms, I insisted they did a blood test to check for menopause. Z She went through hell trying to find out what was wrong. K You have to do several blood tests to confirm it. Normally you get tested on the third day of your cycle, but because my periods didn’t come back after I came off the Pill, they couldn’t pinpoint the correct day. So, it took about three months to get a diagnosis. Eventually, the doctor sat me down and confirmed that it was menopause, and they weren’t sure when it started because the Pill masks the symptoms by filling your body with oestrogen. We’ll never know what brought it on, but more than likely it’s genetic. Even though I’d always had the possibility at the back of my mind, the confirmation felt like a giant slap around my face. I was numb at first, but when the doctor left the room, I burst into tears. Z When Kathryn called me to tell me, my heart broke for her. And to make it worse, she said the doctor told her to let me know immediately, since there was a high chance it would happen to me, too. K Telling Zoe that it had been confirmed was a really hard conversation.

Early menopause: your questions answered
What are the symptoms? Changes in period patterns (they may become less frequent or stop entirely), hot flushes, night sweats, mood swings, loss of libido, vaginal dryness, joint pain.
What should I do if I’m worried? “See your GP and ask for an FSH blood test,” says Dr Etienne Horner, consultant obstetrician and gynaecologist. According to Dr Horner, if follicle-stimulating hormone levels are above the normal range in two separate tests, this is a sign that a woman is in menopause. It’s confirmed. Now what? “It’s recommended to have some kind of hormone treatment, which could be HRT patches or the contraceptive pill, depending on your needs,” says Dr Heather Currie, of Menopause Matters and the British Menopause
Z I oscillated between feeling sick with worry and being quite defensive – thinking, just because it’s happening to Kathryn, it doesn’t mean it will happen to me. Sorry, I feel awful saying that… K It’s OK. Z At the time, I was 32 and I’d only been together with my boyfriend, Paul [Doran-Jones, a rugby player], for three months, but I felt like a ticking time bomb. I had to act quickly, because I wanted a family. To sit down with someone you’ve only just met and say, “How do you feel about having a child?” is tough and risky. But I knew that I’d met the right person, and he’s a father already, to a gorgeous three-year-old daughter, and seeing them together… I just knew. He was very mature, together and thoughtful about the whole thing.
Moving forward K I’m still getting my head around it and grieving for the babies I can’t have naturally. Sometimes, I have a meltdown and think it’s grossly unfair. Z You told me you felt like a failure. K Sometimes, I think, ‘Why me? What have I done?’ I feel like my body has failed me. We’re currently talking to IVF specialists at The London Women’s Clinic and thinking about donor eggs. It’ll cost £12,000, so it’s not something we can do lightly. We recently went to an adoption open evening to hear people’s stories, because we’re considering that, too. Z I came off the Pill and we decided to look into having a baby. I went to The London Women’s Clinic, too, and I had my egg reserves tested. I was told that my egg supply was running out – so I was heading towards menopause. I was hysterical, fearing I’d missed my chance to be a mother. The doctors recommended that I had my eggs frozen, but it didn’t work. I spent 12 days in a panic, injecting hormones into my bruised tummy to stimulate the remaining eggs, but they didn’t grow big enough to harvest. The doctors asked me to come back so they could try a different concoction of drugs. But I had a rethink – I thought, ‘I’m in a loving relationship with the man I want to spend the rest of my life with, let’s GLAMOUR
Society. “This is because if you’re deprived of oestrogen at a younger age than normal, it can have consequences later on, with increased risk of cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis.” Hormone treatment at the right dosage (it can take some tweaking) means women can get their physical symptoms under control. What if I want children? Ask to be referred to a fertility clinic. It’s a good idea to have an AMH (antiMüllerian hormone) blood test, says fertility expert Zita West. “This will give a snapshot of your fertility in terms of what your egg reserves are like.” If you’re not in a position to have children right now, but your eggs are still viable, there is the option of egg freezing. “Those eggs are frozen in time – if you freeze them at 32, you can use them at 38, but they still maintain their original age,” says West. If your egg reserves are depleted, you could consider egg donation: “This offers women who’ve gone through early menopause a good chance of having a baby – it’s about 60-70%.”
How do I get my head around this? “Menopause is viewed as an older women’s issue,” says West. “It’s heartbreaking to see women in their thirties going through it, as they feel so different to their friends, who are having their periods and carrying on with their normal lives.” If you’re struggling with the psychological fallout from early menopause – it can be especially hard if you want a family – you should ask your GP to refer you for counselling. 216 GLAMOUR
slow down, stop panicking, have lots of sex, give it six months and then start again with egg freezing if we need to.’ And a few months later, I fell pregnant naturally.
An awkward lunch Z My happiness was tempered by worry about telling Kathryn. We’re so close, we talk every day, and I felt sick with worry that she’d be angry with me. K That was the last emotion I would feel. I got a text from Zoe saying she was driving up from London to Oxford that day to take me out for lunch, which seemed weird. Z I could barely eat anything at the restaurant, I was so nervous. K When she broke the news, it wasn’t hard for me to hear at that moment because I was so happy for her. But it hit me when I was driving home, and I was bawling so hard I had to pull over. I had very mixed emotions. It’s hard when your sister and lots of your friends are pregnant. Z Kathryn has been so supportive, phoning me every day to see how I am. She’s shelved her own hurt to be my big sister.
Where we are now Z We’re all at a bit of a loss, really – there’s nothing Mum or I can say to Kathryn to make things better. Some days, she phones me up crying hysterically. K I’d love to be a mother, and some way, somehow, it will happen. For now I get to be an aunt and that’s lovely. I love being around kids, and I throw myself into it – I have them crawling all over me. But often, when I get home, I’ll snuggle up to Tom on the sofa and sob. People ask a lot when we’re going to have children. At first I’d say, “We’re working on it.” Then I thought, ‘Why am I lying?’ So, now I say, “I’m going through menopause and it’s going to be exceptionally difficult.” It can be awkward, but I believe in talking about it. There is a huge stigma around menopause in general, let alone early menopause, even though all women go through it at some point. I’m feeling positive about the future – I have options, so I’m lucky. You just have to be brave and dig deep. Z I haven’t thought ahead about having more children – my priority is to get this one out, healthy and happy. And if I go through menopause after the baby is born, then I’ll deal with that. K We’ll deal with it together.

Hygge (pronounced hue-gah): a quality of presence and an experience of togetherness. A feeling of being warm, safe, comforted and sheltered. Hygge is primarily about atmosphere. Most Danish homes are relaxed and informal. When you enter, there will be a basket of slippers by the door; a candle lit on the sideboard. They say, ‘Come in. Cast off your cares.’ It creates an atmosphere that is intimate and inviting. We’re familiar with the pared-back Scandi design aesthetic – but hygge is more than that. It’s about surrounding yourself with things that speak to your senses. It’s about natural light, wooden floors, green plants and fresh flowers; the smell of coffee brewing. Pay attention to beauty and utility. Forget anything too ornate, fussy or self-consciously arranged. The Danish are very attuned to good design and passing things from one generation to the next; they surround themselves with the well-worn and

the glow Achille wooden pendant light £75 Habitat the well-loved. Photographs; a vase which has been handed down; anything handmade – things which remind us that we are loved. The glow of living light is very important to hygge: firelight, a woodburner – or simply a candle on your bedside table. Hygge is about creating a circle of warmth. All over Denmark you see pendant lights hung low over coffee tables and dining tables. If hygge has a scent, it’s clean and natural: musk, wood, vanilla, pine, fresh air. (And it doesn’t matter if you don’t have much outside space: open the windows; put a pot of jasmine on your balcony.) When you invite people to your home, keep it simple. Don’t worry about setting “the perfect table”, it’s about simplicity: fresh flowers, candles, good wine, and comfort food – a one-pot casserole you can prepare in advance (so you can sit with your guests). Carve out cosy corners in your home. The softest cotton sheets and woollen blankets on your bed. A lamp hung low near an armchair, where you can curl up and read. You can hygge alone, just as you can with others. It really doesn’t take much to hygge.

“It’s good to feel lost” Our wellbeing columnist explains why it’s OK not to have a master plan by FEARNE COTTON
PHOTOGRAPH by SIMON DI PRINCIPE
ithout doubt, my least favourite question to be asked in a social situation is: “Oh... and what do you do?” “Er, I kind of... well, I do a bit of this and a bit of that,” I characteristically stammer. The truth is, I’ve never really known. I never had a grand master plan when it came to my career. I started off being a TV presenter and that morphed into a radio DJ, followed by stints of design and cooking. God knows what that ‘makes’ me? A chatty food lover? A fashion-loving cake scoffer? Truthfully, I’m less attached to the idea of what I AM and where I’m going, and just go with the ﬂow of what feels right. Many of you may view me as the sort of person who is on a distinct path with aims and goals. This is

the absolute opposite of how I feel. I can safely say the majority of the best things that have happened in my career and personal life were happy accidents. I often worry that I don’t have deep-rooted goals, that I’m not constantly mentally manifesting fantasies and don’t have an idea of what my skills and strengths are. I know what I like doing, but I’m never quite sure how to channel these energies in the best way. Do I want to host the newest, shiniest TV show? Do I want to try acting again, which was my ﬁrst love as a teenager? Or do I want to run off to Ibiza with the family and sell kaftans in a hippie market? I truly don’t know, but I think that’s OK. When I left Radio 1, I had a huge crisis of identity. I knew I was a mum and a very happy one, a wife and a very content one, a friend and a very loved one. That’s where my identity ended. Who I was in a professional capacity had been eroded somewhere along the stretch-mark-ﬁlled journey to giving birth to my gorgeous daughter, Honey. I had been so heavily pigeonholed as a DJ that doing anything new felt daunting and somewhat fraudulent. Writing my cookbook has been the greatest test in pushing my boundaries of comfort and self-acceptance. But if I hadn’t felt somewhat lost, I would never have taken the leap and embarked on a project that has brought me so much joy. Maybe you’re currently in a job you « don’t like and feel the itch for change. When I left What’s holding you back? It’s most Radio 1, I had a huge crisis probably that leap into the unknown, of identity that ﬁrst step into the wilderness and » the uncertain void that links the now to the mystical future. We like thinking we’re in control and that we have ultimate power over what our path is, but I believe if we remain open enough, we will see signs and opportunities that we hadn’t previously noticed. If you’re currently in that in-between state, unsure of which way to turn, don’t panic: as scary as it may feel, it’s sometimes the best place to be. Think of it as the point at which a great adventure can begin. Navigating uncertain terrain in life ultimately enriches it. Trust me, I know.
Shake it up If you’re feeling a little lost, or just stuck in a rut, here are a few ways to gain a fresh perspective.
Tr y s o m e t h i n g new each day Walk a new route to work, ask the lady who serves you coffee every day a question about herself, wear a colour you’d never normally try. Switching up a tiny moment in your day could be a game-changer in how you think about the bigger picture.
Invest in a cosmic order board I have a blackboard in my kitchen where any visitor can write down their dreams, as serious or fun as they desire. I think writing things down helps push our thoughts in a positive way in the right direction. It’s also great fun to see within your friendship group whose dreams came true by the end of the year.
Give yourself a break Don’t stress if things aren’t happening at the speed you want them to in life. When these feelings of frustration arise, take yourself for a big walk with your headphones in. Listening to something chilled, and walking a little slower, reminds us that sometimes the best things in life can’t be rushed.
Read autobiographies This, for me, is always the most inspiring way to change the way I think. Reading about someone else’s ups and downs makes me feel much freer about how I live my own life. One of my favourites is Anjelica Huston’s two-parter (A Story Lately Told and Watch Me) – so wonderfully written and full of twists and turns.

T HE GL A MOUR LIST
10 t h ing s we a l l (secretly ) fin d f unny by MICHAEL HOGAN
1 ACCIDENTALLY ORDERING DOLLS’ CLOTHES OR FURNITURE ONLINE “OMG, such a bargain! Wait, why’s the parcel so small?”
5 Posing for pics by rude-sounding signs “Stop the car! I saw a shop called Cockenschaft!”
BAD TATTOOS Especially ones with spelling mistakes. “Sweet pee”? “No regerts”? There should be.
4 THE PLANET URANUS They tried to change the pronunciation to “Eur-in-us” but it’ll always be “your anus” to us.
FARTS Yes, it’s immature, but parps, pips and windypops still mean we have to stiﬂe a snigger.
8 Meerkat ads We know we should be bored of them, but they’re still furrily funny. Simples. 240 GLAMOUR
7 YOUR MUM’S TECH FAILS. Accidental Facebook updates. Autocorrected texts. Trying to answer the TV remote when her phone rings. Bless her. Sort of.
Ins ura nc e? I do n’t blo od y ca re
PENISES Sorry, boys, they’re just funny.
OTHER PEOPLE’S HANGOVERS It’s zero ROFLs if you’re suffering. But if it’s a colleague or mate who’s whimpering and being sick into their mouth? Hilare.

PEOPLE TRIPPING OVER Not, like, frail old people who might actually hurt themselves in a fall. But everyone else is fair game, especially when they try and style it out by breaking into a trot.
