JULY 2015

There are lots of things that stress me out before I go on holiday: how I’m going to get there is number one. I hate fying, so a hideously long drive is usually part of the plan. My husband and I, both precariously disorganized, dreamily imagine that we’re still 27 and will be sipping wine on Lake Annecy by 7pm. I like to forget that after driving 1,000 miles with a gaggle of girls (namely our three daughters) bickering over an iPad, I’ll be lucky if I make it to a Novotel without screaming like a crazy woman – never mind a lakeside chateau. And yet, every year I happily google villas far away enough to ensure sun, but near enough that we don’t have to fy. Will we look out on to a feld of sunfowers? Will I pick up an amazing armoire at some nearby brocante? I’m in a holiday fantasy world that plays out 50 weeks of the year – and I’m not the only one. Which is why I loved reading My Holiday Rules (page 112). Kate Moss, we discover, has a brilliant idea that she got from shoe designer Stuart Weitzman: pick a number at random, fnd the corresponding digits on the departures board and go wherever it says. Genius. I would try it, but there’s the fying issue… Happy holidays.

Born in Paris, this Londonbased hairstylist has worked with all the biggies in fashion – think Alexander McQueen, John Galliano and Tom Ford – not to mention A-listers such as Cate Blanchett, Tilda Swinton and Penélope Cruz. Turn to page 102 for his work with musical twins Say Lou Lou. Best festival? ‘Brighton Pride for the best party atmosphere, people and drag queens. But it’s also my worst as I always end up getting too drunk and missing my last train home.’

Kristin vicari This photographer got her frst big opportunity when she was commissioned to work on a Diesel campaign, even though she’d never shot for anyone else before. It was ‘a very lucky break into the industry!’ She turns her lens on singer Laura Hayden (page 124). Worst festival moment? ‘The frst time I went to Glastonbury, someone fell on me and I ended up hitting my head so hard that I was in hospital for two days with concussion.’

A features writer, interviewer and columnist for 18 years, Polly says the most fun she’s had in her career was with Niall and Harry from One Direction. ‘They showed me a very good time up The Gherkin once.’ Now, she adds the title of author to her CV with the publication of her memoir Hot Feminist. Read her thoughts on feminism and fashion on page 116. Stand-out festival memory? ‘I went to Glastonbury when I was 18 and loathed every minute. The mud, the skanky hippies... I still have posttraumatic-stress-disorder fashbacks about the loos.’

edith bowman Our favourite Scottish DJ and TV presenter says she still gets nervous before interviews. Her most memorable? Ashton Kutcher. ‘It’s just rude when you don’t answer a question and get your publicist to answer it for you while you’re still in the room.’ This month, to celebrate her debut book Great British Music Festivals, she writes about her best festival memories on page 118. Worst festival moment? ‘Being only able to stay for one day at Glastonbury last year. That was a tragedy.’

is your ouT oF oFFice on yet? Is there any greater feeling in the world than ficking on that out of offce and breezing away from strip lights, stress and air-con? And generally, at this time of year, that means hurtling yourself to sunnier postcodes and stripping off for the beach. Swimwear that isn’t knitted and actually shows off some skin is, in human terms, a relatively new concept. But now that it’s been around a good few decades – and swimwear designers are less trend-driven and more shape-driven – you can choose which decade suits your fgure best (see over page). How brilliant? We recommend heading to where you can search by bra size; for cool new brands; and for a brilliant range of prices. And relax… InSt yle july 2015


what’s NOw


if you need some support In the 50s, swimwear was still ‘well constructed’ – there was plenty of support in structured, bra-style tops and high-waisted bikini bottoms or, even better, one-pieces with underwiring.

time to find your SwIMwEAR DECADE


if you’re curvy This was still a time before skinny was the be-all and end-all, and women looked the better for it. Plus it’s more fattering to put a bigger bottom in smaller bikini briefs (true fact).


if you’re blessed with small boobs The designs had moved on, but the fabrics hadn’t – a plunging neckline on a nonstretchy fabric works brilliantly on smaller chests. However, bigger boobs should probably steer clear.

MAXMARA does the ‘meeting the public’ Queen


if you’ve got an athletic figure High legs and low backs and lashings of Lycra were the name of the game. If your bod is toned and your legs are long and lean, this is the decade for you.


if you’re a gym bunny In the decade when we frst discovered Jennifer Aniston, we also discovered how much we wanted toned arms. If you’re keen to show off all your hard work at the gym, invest in a 90s-style swimsuit.

Miu Miu works the ‘weekend in Balmoral’ Queen

This month, we celebrate the Queen’s offcial birthday – that’s not the date she was actually born (which is 21 April) but the time she would prefer to celebrate her birthday because, presumably, the weather is nicer. It’s not even a specifc date, it’s just a ‘Saturday in June’. Well, if you were the Queen, that would be your prerogative, right? Good for you, your Majesty. And it just so happens that in fashion terms, the Queen is, like, SO next season…

Stationed in Burma, Nathan Clark sees soldiers in crepe-soled boots from Cairo. He makes his own version, which become popular in the USA.

Mods make desert boots their footwear of choice. Just add a Lambretta.

Sew one end of the elastic to one end of the ribbon. Place on your head and work out how tight you need the elastic to be to hold the crown securely. Mark and sew the other ends together.

STEP 4 Sew The FeaTher trim to the inside of the beaded ribbon (if you don’t want to sew, then a glue gun or superglue would work).

FLO RA L H EA D D RE SS 1980s-90s britpop boots

For added Sparkle dot a little PVA glue at the ends of the feathers and then sprinkle with glitter.



Desert boots are worn by Britain’s coolest, from legends Blur and Oasis and everyone in-between.

You will need 5 fake hydrangea or large fowers (try your local pound shop), woollen pom-poms, ribbons in several colours and lengths, and a needle and thread.

2000-2015: girl power Sported by Suki Waterhouse, Keira Knightley and Florence Welch, the desert boot gets more female attention with wedge soles and girlie patterns.

Kylie Jenner


ith that bee-stung pout and ferce wardrobe, the youngest member of the KardashianJenner dynasty has started to give her older, fashion-loving siblings Kim and Kendall a run for their money in the style stakes. A fan of Timberland boots in her downtime and spray-on dresses with spiky Alaïa heels when she’s going out, she told us who in her family she got her very frst bit of wardrobe inspiration from, and why she pays for everything (even food) herself. ‘I remember the moment I frst got into fashion. It was years ago, I was going to church with Khloe on Easter morning and she put on this foral dress with a denim jacket over the top. It made me begin thinking about style and how people put different looks together. I’ve been into clothes ever since.’ ‘SometImeS I look back at myself on previous seasons of Keeping Up With The Kardashians and think, “Why didn’t you let your hair down then, or put on something

nicer?” I think now I’m much more aware when the cameras are around and I do doll up a lot more.’

If I’m dressing up I love Céline and Saint Laurent, or for accessories Alaïa, Givenchy or Gianvito Rossi.’

‘my mum [krIS Jenner] hasn’t fnancially supported me for three years now. I pay for everything – my car, my gas and food as well as my clothes. There are so many outfts I bought in the past that I just think now are NOT cute – but there’s not very much I can do about it!’

‘I don’t get nervouS when I’m having my photograph taken on the red carpet, but I am spending the whole time thinking about how the pictures are going to turn out, whether my shirt is too low, or whether my dress is the right cut.’

‘I thInk my Style IS a little bit darker thanks to my mum. There are a lot of skulls around her house and the furniture is mostly black and white. She wears a lot of black too, and I think that’s defnitely rubbed off on me.’ ‘I feel lIke I dreSS lIke Khloe on my down days and Kim when I’m going out. If I’m just running out I’ll throw on a cute T-shirt, a pair of leggings and my Timberland boots.

‘I get Spray tanS a lot so the Yoga Blend scrub by Nip + Fab is a good skin prep. Before I go to bed I cover my body in it and because it contains lavender it’s really relaxing. I also use Nip + Fab’s Dragon Blood Serum a lot – I have naturally dry skin so it’s good for hydration.’ ‘I haven’t worked out In two and a half years. I’m living out my youth not doing any exercise and eating what I want, which is pretty bad. I’m into yellow rice – you just cook it for 15 minutes, it tastes so good.’ Kylie Jenner is the brand ambassador for Nip + Fab

What It’s officially summer, and that means one thing: wedding season. Buckle up, it’s going to be a bumpy ride…


harles and I are on our way to our frst wedding of the summer. I am driving. I’ve now managed to miss getting onto the M1 three times. We have tried to hide this fact from our friends in the back, but they start voicing concern that we are heading towards London rather than away from it. ‘Apparently the A1 does not turn into the M1!’ I say with a level of frivolity that I hope takes away any confusion. When I eventually manage to take the right exit and follow those forbidding signs to THE NORTH, everyone immediately starts discussing when we can have a servicestation break. We stop at the frst one that has an M&S, where I stock up on driver’s fuel of those swirly salt-and-vinegar crisps and some chocolate buttons. Back on the motorway, I think that this probably isn’t going to be one of those road trips where anyone learns anything profound about themselves, but rather one where we all silently worry about getting to the wedding on time and take bets on what theme the tables might have (Doctor Who, as it turns out). The traffc bunches up in enough fts and starts that I have already ruled out having time to fnd hairspray in a local town. In lieu of a hat, I go ‘big hair’ as I don’t really like things on my head – although weddings and that strange realm of ‘occasion dressing’ (usually best left in forlorn corners of regional department stores) often cause one to ponder such affectations. I fnd that the best way to alleviate oneself of this concern is to google ‘minor royals’ and ascertain that no one really needs to put anything on one’s head at a wedding. I’ve only brought one outft with me, no backup, although I did put in three pairs of tights in the belief that they can’t all have holes in them. I’ve chosen a simple

said navy Preen shift with printed front, a lightweight embellished Moschino coat which I worry is a bit ‘Middleton’, and my favourite, comfest mid-height Aquazzura heels (I dance until midnight before feeling a pinch). My general thinking on wedding attire is to go for something old, loved and photogenic. Ideally, one would avoid shrieking, brash prints and stretchy, unforgiving peplums – but then, what sport would other guests have without these to spot? If you really need to buy something new, look on The Outnet or somewhere like Vestiaire Collective or Covetique (old season or posh second hand), or vintage if you can be bothered (I can’t, ever, except for williamvintage. com), rather than fnding the nicest dress in Whistles and then realising when you

single people aren’t left out (but don’t try to pair them off with the only other single person there). There is, obviously, nothing worse than a woman gone full Bridezilla, but it is her ‘special day’, so up to a point you have to humour her. I’m not one for getting all concerned about traditions and doing things because of some misplaced sense of obligation. I’ve probably turned down more hen dos than I’ve attended. If you don’t want to do it, don’t. Just because someone is behaving like a princess, you don’t have to take on the role of chief chewing-gum carrier. Yes, it’s lovely that she’s getting married, but it doesn’t make her a better or more important person – just someone who’s throwing a nice party. If she’s really getting out of control, treat her to a screening of In Bed With Madonna to show her what it takes to be a real diva. The traffc suddenly breaks and we whizz through some very Richard Curtisesque scenery to the venue. We change into our fnery, become a little giddy, a little teary, we dance, chip butties are brought out at midnight (God bless the North) and everything is as it should be: more than worth the hangover.

‘Yes, it’s lovely that she’s getting married, but it doesn’t make her a better person – just someone who’s throwing a nice party’ trot along the aisle that at least four other women have had the same thought. The main rule of weddings is to turn up, look nice, be joyous and, crucially, be fun. Nobody likes a morose guest, or someone who won’t dance. Have conversations with strangers, laugh at the speeches, toast everything and everyone and make sure

Erdem A|W 2015 WHEN 23 February, for the house’s autumn/winter 2015 ready-to-wear show. WHERE Selfridges car park, London. WHY With lighting that looked like sun pouring through blinds, Erdem’s set of mid-century chairs, 1960s TVs and Scandinavian coffee tables looked more like your gran’s living room than a catwalk, and the clothes could have been her heirlooms, too (well, if your gran was the most stylish lady ever). The models left the catwalk to lean on sideboards or lounge in chairs during the fnale, to whoops of approval.

Best dressed: alexa chung Nothing says summer cool like a nonchalant, white Chloé frock. And nothing makes better partners than some fat leather sandals, circular shades and a necklace made out of… wait, are they tiny skulls? Wh’evs Alexa, you pull it of and make us want to grab a cold glass of rosé…

the LOOK



m O r f


These girls know how to amp up their look for a special event. Pointy-toe heels? Tick. Sparkles? Tick. Tiny bag? Triple tick!








The gals get Glasto ready by switching the embellishment for forals and frills, and the heels for cowboy boots and gladiator sandals.

grew up on the Isle of Wight where we wear shorts as early in the year as possible (we have legs of steel!), so Bermudas are practically traditional costume for me.

going to Cornwall on Q I’m my frst staycation and I’m

going to Bestival Q I’m this year; the fancy dress theme is Summer Of Love and I’m single! What should I wear that will make me look like a good laugh (but still relatively attractive)?

worried about what to pack. Any suggestions, as the ‘great’ British summer time usually means bad weather? I’m more accustomed to Ibiza, TBH…

Natasha, Newport

emma, tuNbridge wells

The answer is very much dependent on what kind of person you want to appeal to. For me, if someone goes all out and has no care for how attractive they look, that makes them more attractive than ever. Women who use fancy dress as an excuse to dress slutty get a big no-no from me. Just go for something hilarious and you’ll bag the right kind of guy. (Oh, dear, I sound like an agony aunt!)


The key to dressing for the British summer? It’s all about layers – great summery pieces but with every eventuality covered. A colourful, lightweight cardigan, wrap or shawl that suits you is always a good idea, and something waterproof that doesn’t make you look as if you’re on a PGL at 13 would be another of my top tips.

Sorry, but I can’t help chuckling a little. You have to remember that this is her day, not yours, and questioning her taste now is probably not a great idea. I suggest bombarding her with great pictures of other options. If that doesn’t work, bite the bullet and get satined up!

essica Chastain is perusing the extensive breakfast menu at Claridge’s, in London’s swanky Mayfair, when she spots something that whets her appetite for a good rant. ‘One time I did an interview with a guy, and I was eating a fruit plate, and he wrote: “During our interview she barely picked at her fruit…” It made me so mad, because I hate it when people write that about women. To be honest, I was barely picking at my fruit because he was asking me questions.’ We’re sitting in the hotel’s iconic foyer, with its soaring archways and gilt-edged mirrors – it’s an art-deco showcase with a touch of carnival in the form of striped china teacups. Chastain makes a suitably glamorous (not to mention feisty) addition to the surroundings. She’s clad in dark Tom Ford trousers and a green Dolce & Gabbana blouse, her red locks rolling over her shoulders, Pre-Raphaelite style. The efect is quintessential Old Hollywood, yet there’s another vibe going on, too. Maybe it’s the loose bell sleeves and cut-out lacy neckline of her blouse. There’s something of the latent hippie in her demeanour. The actress did grow up in Northern California, after all, one of fve siblings raised by a chef (now a vegan-food-truck-driving) mother and a frefghter stepfather. I suggest to her that freckles and sunshine don’t always make for a great mix. ‘I defnitely got picked on as a kid,’ she says, ‘but I was never the girl who hid in class. I wanted to look like Annie for a time, so I got a terrible perm and had a curly red Afro because the perm fried my hair. Then I cut it all of and had very short red hair. I always stood out for my bold choices.’ To say that Jessica Chastain has ‘stood out’ in recent years would be something of an understatement. After the dramatic thriller The Debt in 2010, she starred in six flms released in 2011, including The Help, which saw her nominated for an Oscar and a Golden Globe, and The Tree of Life, playing alongside Brad Pitt. The following year, Time magazine named her one of the 100 Most Infuential People in the World, and she portrayed an intelligence operative leading the hunt for Osama bin Laden in Kathryn Bigelow’s Zero Dark Thirty – a role that won her a Golden Globe and a Critics’ Choice Award along with a second Academy Award nomination. Even within this meteoric career trajectory, Chastain proved her chops as a formidably talented lead actress. So much success all at once at 34 (after seven years as a struggling actress, putting money in envelopes marked ‘Rent’ and ‘Groceries’ to stay on budget) must have blown the lid of her life. She admits that 2011 was overwhelming. ‘It felt huge! And it was really scary,’ she says, digging into her fabled fruit plate. ‘You can feel something spectacular is about to happen in your life, and my biggest fear was that once you pass this line, you’re forever changed. I didn’t understand what public life was yet, and so there was this feeling of like, “What if this is not something I want? What if people start to separate from me?” And no matter what, that stays with you for the rest of your life once you cross that line. Now I’m like, “Actually, it’s fne.” People

don’t really separate – but I had to make a very conscious efort to make sure it didn’t happen.’ Everyone has a turning point in their career, and Chastain’s is easy to recognise. It came just before shooting The Tree of Life, Terrence Malick’s mystical drama, in which she had to embody perfect maternal love and grace. Pitt wasn’t originally cast as the male lead, however – it was Heath Ledger. Chastain had recently auditioned for a flm with Pitt but was told, ‘No one would ever cast an unknown opposite Brad Pitt.’ Then, in a twist of fate, Ledger dropped out of the production, and Pitt came on board when Chastain was already cast. ‘And I thought, “How sweeet is this moment!”’ she says cheekily. ‘I knew the second Brad signed on that it would be a game changer for my career. Then I was just scared I was going to get fred. It wasn’t until after a week of shooting that I started to relax.’ Last year saw Chastain star in two critically acclaimed flms: the sci-f epic Interstellar, with Anne Hathaway and Matthew McConaughey, and A Most Violent Year, a gangster flm noir set in the battle zone that was New York City in 1981, one of the most dangerous years on record in the city’s history. For the latter flm she received a third Golden Globe nomination. ‘I feel more comfortable in my own skin now,’ she says. ‘I don’t feel like, “Aagh, what am I doing here?” I work really hard, and now I feel a bit like I don’t know how long this is going to last, but I’m comfortable.’ Being wiser and older (in Hollywood terms, that is; she’s 38) has helped Chastain deal with all the dazzle and accolades. She’s not the new kid on the block – she’s the in-control star who last year chose to make The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby with her pals rather than appear in Iron Man 3. Chastain is not about to stray from her frst love. ‘My favourite thing in the world is acting, and I want to be seen as a professional. I don’t have a lifestyle website. I’m not interested in the fame of being a personality. Some people are, and they love it, and that’s great for them. But the whole anxiety I had in 2011 was about not wanting to be in a room and have everyone stop and look.’ Then, glancing around the busy dining room, she says quietly: ‘I’m sure if Angelina Jolie were sitting here, it would be a very diferent experience, because you would have 30 people who were not paying attention to their breakfast companions and were instead staring at her, and that defnitely is an extreme. That, for me, would be terrible.’ Chastain cut her teeth in TV after majoring in drama at New York’s prestigious Juilliard School, thanks to a scholarship from former alumnus Robin Williams. She never met the late actor but sent him letters thanking him for his generosity, and they communicated through fellow co-stars. ‘I always thought in some way I would have a chance to pay him back,’ she says sadly. ‘It was a very strange thing never to have met him. I didn’t want to be stalkerish, but then you always question yourself: “Did I do enough?” I’m hoping there’s a way to continue his legacy and keep the scholarship going.’ Despite soon earning parts on ER and Law & Order, the young actress started to feel restricted in the roles she was being ofered. ‘There were two kinds of roles for women. You’re either the girlfriend – incredibly beautiful but not much going on – or the victim, like the weird neighbour,’ she says. ‘It’s like the two ideas of women that are talked about: the slut or the wife. And that’s not so interesting.’ Chastain set out to fnd better roles for herself on the big screen, and today she’s a strong advocate for women in Hollywood generally, and for diversifying flmmaking. ‘As an audience member I go to the movies a lot, and I want to see women portrayed like the ones I know – women who are really intelligent and strong and vulnerable. I’m not interested in playing a stereotype.’ It’s an ongoing mission in an industry in which female stories are often sidelined, while the man’s perspective is presented as

‘My favourite thing in the world is acting, and I want to be seen as a professional. I’m not interested in the fame of being a personality’ the main ‘human’ experience. However, Chastain’s character in A Most Violent Year, Anna Morales, is beautifully complex: part gangster’s moll, part dutiful wife, part aspirational businesswoman. The male lead is a fellow Juilliard classmate, Oscar Isaac. She helped him score the gig (after Javier Bardem dropped out) by way of an impassioned email to the director, JC Chandor. ‘Of course, as soon as I sent it, there was self-doubt,’ she remembers. ‘But within 10 minutes, JC emailed me back with one sentence: “He’s cast, but don’t tell him yet.”’ As open and passionate as she is about her craft, Chastain is famously reticent when it comes to her love life. When I ask about the ‘no actors’ rule she apparently applies to romance, she groans a little but says she enjoys being with someone who isn’t in the same industry (her fashion executive boyfriend, Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo, is having breakfast on the other side of the room). ‘I made sure when I started that I was known for my work, not for whom I was dating. Acting is all about being open to another person, and to date an actor… it just confuses it, because how do you ever know if it’s real?’ she asks. Certain events in her life sharpened her sense of perspective – one so heartbreaking she’s only just started talking about it: the suicide of her younger sister, who sufered from depression. ‘It completely changed the person that I am,’ she says. ‘A movie, Oscars, a dress, if someone thinks I’m stupid… I realised nothing is that important.’ There’s a moment in A Most Violent Year when Isaac’s character, Abel, explains that when things feel the scariest, that’s the time to take a risk. I ask Chastain whether this resonates with her, with her need to keep stretching her wings, her fearlessness in the face of a challenge. She nods and sets her chin. ‘Maybe you fail huge, but you learn so much more.’ Jessica is a Piaget international brand ambassador. See her next in Crimson Peak and The Martian, which are both on release this autumn

What items would you like to steal from the shoot today? Miranda: ‘Defnitely the Missoni trousers.’ Elektra: ‘I love the Louis Vuitton jeans. There’s always a hint of 70s in our style, whether it’s trousers, scarves or sunglasses.’

Do you share clothes? Miranda: ‘Pretty much. When we’re on tour we even steal each other’s underwear! But the same


clothes look different on each of us. If I put on Levi’s 501s, boots and a big leather jacket, I look like a rookie, but when Elektra does it she looks like an 80s highschool girl. I think it’s the hair.’

Do you like that your hair lets you put an individual stamp on your look? Elektra: ‘When we moved back to Australia as teenagers, I spent a lot of time on the beach and started pressing lemon juice onto my hair. I’ve been blonde ever since. In hindsight it’s good. We look so much alike otherwise, and it’s annoying for everyone when we keep getting mixed up.’

But it must be useful having an identical twin to test clothes out on... Miranda: ‘When we go shopping I have to try on everything so Elektra can judge if it fts perfectly, as she can see it from every angle on me. It’s kind of an unfair deal because I never get to chill out on the seat in the changing room!’

Music clearly runs in the family. Did you have a musical upbringing? Elektra: ‘Yes. Our parents and all our uncles were musicians so, growing up, we were surrounded by music. I think everyone expected us to be musical geniuses and tried to give us instruments to play, but it wasn’t until we were older that we felt the urge to write songs.’

Do you have boyfriends and are you quite protective of each other? Elektra: ‘Yes we do. I don’t like seeing Miranda getting hurt. I get very protective if someone is mistreating her!’

Do you feel more Swedish or Australian? Miranda: ‘We’re very political, which I think is quite Swedish. We take a stand for things. But I guess our humour is way more Australian!’ You’re playing a lot of festivals this summer. Got any style tips? Miranda: ‘Sequin hot pants might seem like a good idea but when you get there you’ll want something comfortable that you don’t mind getting dirty.’

What do you like to wear on stage? Miranda: ‘We try to step up the drama with more eye make-up and make sure our clothes have great movement to them, like big sleeves or fares.’

Who are your 70s style icons? Miranda: ‘Charlotte Rampling and Kate Bush. Also, David Bowie – some of his stuff is equally inspiring for women as it is for men.’

What did your parents teach you about the industry? Elektra: ‘That it’s better to fail doing what you love, than win at doing something you don’t.’ Miranda: ‘Also to treat everyone with respect and kindness, because the people you meet on the way up are the people you meet on your way down!’ Say Lou Lou’s debut album, Lucid Dreaming, is out now

Is there anyone better to showcase this season’s 70s favour than the musical duo and identical twins, Say Lou Lou? With those neverending limbs and cheekbones so sharp that you could chop parsley with them, the pair look like they’ve just wafted straight out of Studio 54. Miranda (brunette) and Elektra (blonde) tell us they have plenty of fashion items inspired from that decade in their wardrobes at home, including a retro pair of personalised Adidas Gazelles with ‘Say Lou Lou’ inked on the heels. ‘We used to think we shouldn’t wear them at the same time, but we love them so much we don’t care.’ Miranda laughs. Half-Australian, half-Swedish (a combination that possibly explains why they’re such a chilledout pair), music runs in the sisters’ blood. Dad is Steve Kilbey of Australian rock band The Church, Mum Karin Jansson was in Swedish punk band, Pink Champagne. As teenagers they considered rebelling against their parents and becoming accountants, but in the end they followed the family into music, albeit in their own dreamy, electro-pop fashion. After building up a cult following – and even starring in a short flm last year for Gucci – the pair have just released their debut album, Lucid Dreaming, which Miranda describes as ‘disco noir’. You can hear it for yourself when the sisters hit the UK festival circuit this summer, looking achingly cool in suede and fringing.

K ate Moss Loves… A glass of wine on the plane, Eres bikinis and having a suntanned husband The no-frills pre-holiday Mani ‘I always like a bit of dark red paint on my nails. If I’m not doing them myself I go to a nice little salon in Primrose Hill – it’s totally no-nonsense. I hate all that pampering business, I prefer hanging out with Lila to sitting through a long manicure!’ Two suiTcases (MiniMuM) ‘I don’t think I massively over-pack but I’m defnitely not a one-case kind of girl. If the plane lost all my luggage and I was somewhere sunny like Ibiza I would just get a bikini, shorts, T-shirt and sandals. If it was somewhere colder like New York I’d go for jeans, jacket and a pair of Louboutins.’ My perfecT Travel coMpanion ‘My daughter Lila. [The shoe designer] Stuart Weitzman does this cool thing with his kids, which I want to do with Lila. You pick a number at random out of a hat and then pick the corresponding number on the departure board. Then you just go wherever it says. Brilliant!’

I always take a cashmere blanket with me and make sure I have family pictures in my passport holder.’ geTTing ouT of The resorT ‘Lots of people go on holiday and don’t even leave their hotel. I think you should experience the place you’re in. Make sure you have some cash on you, get out of the hotel and go to the nearest village. My idea of holiday hell is being stuck in a Caribbean island hotel in the rain!’ My besT holiday ever ‘A safari I went on with my husband, daughter, [party planner] Fran Cutler, her partner and daughter. There were wild elephants by the pool and it was so incredible we were all crying when we left.’ My perfecT bikini ‘I don’t really plan my holiday wardrobe. I’ve collected it over the years and have favourite pieces I always take, though I buy a new bikini every time. I fnd Eres ones ft really nicely, they’re well made and they aren’t really affected by sea salt or chlorine in the pool.’ no heels on The beach ‘In the evening I normally go for long dresses with fats.

Heels don’t really work if you’re on an island. I prefer to keep my hair natural and just pull it up off my face. For make-up I’ll put on Rimmel mascara, a stronger lipstick and some St.Tropez Skin Illuminator for a subtle shimmer. You can get away with a late night when you have a tan so I’ll use St.Tropez Gradual Tan In Shower for a healthy glow, then before bed I’ll moisturise with Sanctuary Spa’s Wonder Oil Serum.’ My bronzed husband ‘I love it when Jamie has a tan. He hates it because it isn’t very rock ’n’ roll; I think he just looks really hot!’

He’s adventurous and always encourages me to try new things. My idea of a dream holiday is one where we can switch off our phones and iPads, and just connect to each other without any interruption.’ the fine art of pacKing ‘I’m pretty good at packing and rarely go over the limit. It’s all about being methodical. I use loads of ziplock bags to group my clothes and beauty products together and have a good quality Rimowa suitcase.’ paint it red ‘I defnitely get my love of manis and pedis from my mum. On my toes this summer I’m going to wear a red shade from my Ciaté range called Hutch, which was inspired by her.’ going east ‘For great culture I adore Japan. The food is beyond delicious, the people are so kind and there’s loads of great fashion to discover. They also have the most beautiful cherry blossoms in the world.’ chic getaways ‘The Hamptons in New York or Babington House in the English countryside are great places for a quick escape – close enough so I can get back easily if I need to, but still far away enough to make me feel like I’m actually on a break.’ essential reading material ‘Homes magazines. My favourite is Architectural Digest. The real estate sections of newspapers are always fun to fick through too.’ stylish food ‘What I eat on holiday totally depends on my mood, but generally I love Asian fusion. I’ve had some amazing dinners on vacation, but I would have to say the Italian food at Valentino’s house is the very best.’ the perfect sundowner ‘A Disaronno on ice – it has just the right level of sweetness – or a lychee martini.’ space-saving swimwear ‘I love a reversible strapless bikini – it’s great if you want to pack lightly and I prefer one with no straps to avoid tan lines. I also have this sporty one-piece by Lisa Marie Fernandez, which keeps me warm if it’s not baking hot.’

You adore make up. You love a heel. You think there’s nothing wrong with a bikini wax. Call yourself a feminist? Yep actually, says Polly Vernon, whose new book you have to read right now


’m a funny kind of a feminist. Terminally un-PC, rigorously waxed, completely obsessed with my Look, that’s me. But make no mistake: I am a feminist. I’m as concerned with the development and protection of my – and every other woman’s – lady rights, as anyone. I fght hard, dirty and constantly to improve them, make them solid and keep them safe. I shout, scream, write, act, Tweet and rage in feminism’s mighty name, as and when a situation demands. Imagine my surprise when I fnd that many, many people believe my concern with both my looks and my Look, automatically cancels out my right to call myself a feminist! When I collided, head on, with the widespread and fundamentally sexist assumption that a woman’s brain is too teeny tiny to accommodate an on-going monologue regarding pleather culottes, the affordability of Acne’s Jensen boots and the merits

of bomber jackets over bikers, AND bigger political concerns. ‘Women, you can only possibly be one or the other!’ that logic runs. ‘Fashionable or feminist! Which is it to be?’ What utter tosh, I thought, and I got so cross, I dedicated an entire book to debunking this nonsense. It’s called Hot Feminist, it’s about how our looks can empower us, and it explains, among other things, how the fashionable feminist dresses herself for ultimate power. Here’s a taster 12-point guide: The Hot Feminist views new fashion trends as ideas, as possibilities, as suggestions, as excellent dares… But not as The Law. Trends aren’t The Law. Take it from someone who dabbles with them, personally and professionally: trends are the way the fashion industry shakes things up a bit, keeps it fowing forwards, gives it a kick up the arse, stops us all getting bored.

They are thoughts, whimsies, what ifs. But they are not Rules, Punishable By Abject Humiliation For Any Who Do Not Comply. If you fancy indulging one – say, this season’s fared jean – attempt it cheaply in the frst instance. Go Topshop Jamie, not J Brand Sabine – not yet! If you love it after a wear or two (there’s no way of knowing how much you’ll like anything, till you’ve done it all day – and then done it again, with a different top and shoes and in a different context), then consider an upgrade, consider investing in the expensive designer option. Ensure that any new trend merges reasonably effortlessly with the rest of your wardrobe. If you fnd yourself buying yet more things to accommodate the original new thing, you’re in danger of allowing said new thing to overpower you, in which case: abort trend! Don’t indulge more than one new trend a season either, your Look is a gradually and organically evolving work, it’s only going to be obstructed by constant staccato explosions of Brave New Statements. Only go shopping wearing clothes you already really like. Don’t buy anything new that doesn’t look as good – ideally, better – than the outft you came in. The Hot Feminist spiritual jumping-off point on shopping is eternally: I already like how I look, let’s see if I can take it up a level. Don’t buy anything new without knowing, even as you queue to pay, Visa card aloft, potential purchase clutched to your chest, what you’ll be moving out of your existing wardrobe to make room for it. What’s going on eBay or to Oxfam, what’s being passed on to the friend or relative who’s made no secret of coveting it. You need to work according to a onein-one-out policy, to keep your wardrobe lean and mean and fresh and fully operational. Don’t clog it up with stuff you don’t wear any more. A stagnant wardrobe will overwhelm you, slow you down, in terms of your aesthetic – and in terms of your sense of yourself, too. Shop only when you’re happy, or contented, or confdent, or secure, at which point you will shop to reconfrm or celebrate the person you are. Don’t shop when you’re sad, or anxious, or low, or confused; in those moments, you’re not looking for a new outft, you’re scrabbling about frantically, attempting to transform your mood. Instead: text a

friend, go for a walk, get drunk, cuddle a dog. Effective shopping happens on the good days, not the bad ones. Wear high heels, if you want to wear high heels. Traditional feminism views them as dubious, as impeding women’s literal and metaphorical progression through life. Hot Feminism views them as nothing more that the basis of an alternative silhouette, as a way of sexy-ing things up, if and when they need sexy-ing up. (Hot Feminism also has it on good authority that, from a foot-care perspective, the best thing you can do for your feet structurally is alternate heel heights through the week, from high to low to mid, and back again.) Ditto pink. I’m not sure when pink became The Enemy Of Feminism, and I’m not sure why: it’s a colour, not a restrictive social convention or a dodgy law, it’s no more non-feminist than the sky, or kittens, or Tuesdays. Wear it if it suits you. Don’t waste good feminist ire raging against Photoshop. The idea that digital trickery on magazine and advertising images is damaging women’s self-esteem, is very suspect. Yes – the world is wallpapered with pics of beautiful women, but a) I, for one, know those pics have been Photoshopped, on account of my not being stupid; I know they’re fantastical notions of perfection and not entirely truthful, b) I also know those women would be more beautiful than me even without Photoshop; being beautiful is their job, and c) I couldn’t give a monkeys! Them being mega-hot doesn’t mean I can’t, and shouldn’t, also feel hot in my own, unPhotoshopped, imperfect right from time to time – and it certainly shouldn’t stop you. The magnifcently dressed woman standing next to you is inspiration, not competition. Jewellery acquired in pawn shops and from antique stalls is imbued with history, and always looks better for it. It’ll anchor your look, give it substance and ballast. Also, gold and diamonds are surprising amounts cheaper secondhand. Not bankrupting yourself on things you can’t really afford is always good feminist practice. Don’t buy the exact same thing your friend just bought. Even if she swears she’s OK with it (because she won’t be, really). You’ll never love it on yourself as much as you love it on her, plus you’ll be dooming both of you to a season or longer of checking you won’t be wearing it out simultaneously… And, most of all, you need to fnd your own fashion vibe, not borrow someone else’s. Hot Feminism is, at its very heart, about full and frank expression of self. The Hot Feminist wears clothes because clothes are one of the ways she engages in a dialogue with the world, tells it who she is, marks out her space within it. The only way to do this properly is with a style that is entirely yours. Ignore all received wisdom about age-appropriate clothing. Never wonder if anything is ‘a bit mutton’. Do you like it, does it ft, does it suit your vibe, is it climate appropriate, will it work in whatever context you’re about to unleash it? These are the things that matter. Arbitrary ideas that there are things a woman ‘should’ and ‘should not’ wear at 20, 30, 40 et cetera are outdated. Everyone else is waaaaaay too busy worrying about what they look like to judge you nearly as hard as you probably think they are. Hot Feminist by Polly Vernon (£14.99, Hodder & Stoughton) is out now

Box-fresh doughnuts, paddle boarding and cofee with The Charlatans – these are just some of DJ/presenter Edith Bowman’s fave festival moments…


or me, summer just wouldn’t be summer without festivals. I’ve spent over half of my life going to them – working, just for fun, and accompanying my husband and his band Editors. There is nothing like a weekend away with friends discovering new music and maybe even learning more about yourself than you had anticipated. My frst festival experience was at T In The Park. It was the 90s and I was at university in Edinburgh. I was doing work experience for my local radio station so I went to the festival as a runner. It was like nothing I had ever dreamed of. There were music fans in their thousands, ecstatic at the prospect of seeing their favourite bands and discovering new ones… and I was one of them. It unlocked a passion for music that I didn’t even know I had. It threw me into liking bands like The Prodigy, with their amazing amalgamation of genres, guitars and dance music on a massive scale. I’d been to loads of gigs, but I’d never experienced anything like this before. Since then, there hasn’t been a year when I haven’t been to at least one. Here are some of my favourites…

L At i t U d e


Latitude is a wonderful cultural celebration that I’ve been to at least half a dozen times. The setting is spectacular. It’s magical, with small stages and performance areas scattered in and around woodland at the edges of the main arena. One of my most memorable times at Latitude was in 2012 when I’d just discovered I was pregnant with my second child. It was so early in my pregnancy we didn’t feel ready to tell people, but trying to keep a secret like that was pretty testing. Luckily I was also working that year, hosting a session in the BAFTA Film tent with Shame screenwriter Abi Morgan, so that helped detract attention from it – I couldn’t possibly drink before the interview anyway. By the time I’d fnished, everyone else was well on their way to being slightly tipsy so they didn’t even notice that my cider had remained untouched. It’s defnitely a different experience being the only sober one at a festival – you end up having to make all the decisions for everyone.

‘Take time out from the music and go to the comedy, flm or literary tents. I remember seeing Peter Blake do an amazing Q&A, and I caught Ross Noble doing a brilliant stand-up set.’ 119

f e st i va l n o 6 I went to Festival No 6 for the frst time last year on my own, and there is something utterly liberating about going to a festival by yourself. The location – Portmeirion in north Wales – is totally unique (you might recognise it as the setting for the 60s TV show The Prisoner). I’ll always remember the brilliant three-hour train journey from London to Bangor, involving live comedy and poetry. If only every train journey could be so inspiring. It’s only when you walk away from the main arena that you discover all the amazing and unique events set in the Mediterranean–style toy town. Tim Burgess from The Charlatans took over the town hall with his Tim Peaks cafe, where he DJ-ed and served homemade cakes and his own brand of coffee. It was really quaint and fun – I spent quite a bit of time in there when I wasn’t taking part in the ukulele workshop, which was taught by an elderly man in lederhosen!

‘Go down to the estuary and try a bit of paddle boarding. When you look back from the water at Portmeirion, it’s almost like you’re looking at a painting.’

GlastonBURY There’s not much left to say about Glastonbury that hasn’t already been said, but seeing my son watching his dad play there for the frst time was pretty special. His little face! He’d seen his dad play before, but he wasn’t old enough to have clocked what was happening. This time it was like he was thinking, ‘These people are here to see my dad and this is what my dad does.’ You could see his little brain going – I spent most of my time watching him watching his dad, rather than watching the band. Trying to stop him running onto the stage was a bit of a struggle, though! Last year, we went to Glastonbury for the day and arranged to meet up with some friends. They suggested the restaurant and we thought: ‘A restaurant?!’ but we rocked up and there was a fsh restaurant in the hospitality area, where we sat down and had a proper meal. It felt a bit wrong but the food was lovely! I can’t be at a festival and not go to a fresh doughnut stall. That’s my thing. I’ve got to have fresh doughnuts at a festival.

‘For the record, if Kanye gets it right on the night this year he will absolutely annihilate all those doubters. Personally, I can’t wait to see him play.’

‘Take time out and try a bit of Scottish tradition in the Ceildh tent. It’s a fantastic atmosphere and great alternative for a knees-up with your mates.’

t in the PaRK While many festivals embrace other art forms and culture, T remains purely about the music. You won’t fnd a more dedicated – or loud – crowd than at T; ask any band or artist and they will cite the crowds there as the best in the world. So you can imagine my nerves when, a few years ago, I was asked if I’d mind going out on the main stage – just before Coldplay were due to headline – and encourage the crowd to sing along to I Am The Resurrection by The Stone Roses. It was for the audio of the flm Spike Island (based around The Roses’ legendary gig in 1990). That frst step onto the stage was something that I can’t really put into words, but the audience was a sea of faces and colour and energy as far as the eye could see. Imagine if that was your view on a regular basis! Thankfully, no one threw wee at me and you can hear that T crowd singing their hearts out in the flm. What a lovely way to create a permanent record of their passion – and noise levels.

‘The Port stage is just mind blowing. If you’re having a bit of a lull at any time, five minutes in that crowd will energise you immediately.’ This is a very special festival. Organised by Rob Da Bank and his family, as soon as you arrive you get the feeling that you’ve been welcomed into the Da Banks’ extended outdoor house party. I took my six-year-old last year, just for the day, and we had the best time. It was a varied day that involved watching the last-ever Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip gig, followed by about six goes on the toboggan ride and, after some delicious freshly made pizza, laughing our heads off at The Cuban Brothers. We even wore matching capes for the day. If you like a dance, this is a festival that you will want to dance non-stop at, particularly around HMS Bestival, an enormous grounded boat that doubles up as a stage at The Port area of the site. We didn’t want to leave, but went away with a smile on our faces and my son asking: ‘Please can we go next year, and stay?’ Edith Bowman’s book Great British Music Festivals is out now (£16.99, Blink Publishing)

Th e e y e li n e r This season eyeliner was rebellious (any feline ficks on show were of the wild variety) so make sure yours are punk-rocker perfect. ‘I went for an eyeliner under the eye – a look that was seen at a couple of shows this season,’ says make-up artist and Rimmel London spokesperson Kirsten Piggott. ‘It’s quite a tough, tribal look but it’s a fun alternative for festival make-up.’ Top Tip ‘The aim is to create an almost straight line across the bottom of the eye so begin under the pupil, just shy of the lashes, leaving a small gap between the inner and outer corners of your eyes. The line needs to be a bit thicker than usual to fake the straightness but a cotton bud is your best friend for adjusting the shape as you go,’ says Piggott.

The meTallic eye Metallic eyes were made for festivals. Ramp them up to Pyramid Stage levels by adding some silver rhinestones. ‘Start by taking some silver eyeshadow and wetting it before you apply it to the lid as this will make it last longer,’ says Piggott. ‘I went for a slightly triangular shape here, pulling it out at the outer corners of the eyes and smudging it underneath the bottom lash line before adding my crystals.’ Top Tip ‘The key to any facial embellishment is to keep the skin as clean as possible so that they stay put for longer,’ says Piggott who advises using a touch of BB cream only where needed and keeping some eyelash glue to hand should things start sliding.

T h e L i p No one wants to be carrying around a bulging make-up bag at Glasto. Festival chic calls for a big scale back on the product front – but how do you look rock-star hot? Cue the striking ‘patchwork’ pout (spotted at the Eudon Choi show) which just needs a few stubs of bright lippy to achieve the look and doesn’t call for much else at all on the make-up front. ‘This multi-tone lip is as efortless as it looks but it still feels a bit fun and diferent to a normal bright mouth,’ says Piggott. How to do it? ‘Keep everything else super- pared back (I simply added a bit of gloss to the lids) then use a red lip pencil to lightly defne the edges of the lips before flling it in with three diferent hues of long-lasting lipstick,’ says Piggott. Top Tip ‘I added a bit of eyeshadow and blusher over the top of each colour to set it,’ she adds.

T h e TaT To o Even preppy king Tommy Hilfger rolled out faux face tattoos at his s/s 2015 show, so that’s your proof that they’re everywhere this year. Make the campsite your catwalk by opting for a softly smudged eye with a smattering of stars along your cheekbones. ‘I’ve gone freehand here but you can fnd little stencils in most stationery or craft shops,’ says Piggott who used a long-wearing gel eyeliner on bare skin to etch in her stellar constellations. ‘You can almost use them to shape your cheekbones a bit.’ She went on to use an eyeshadow pencil in taupe around the eye to give it a subtle smoulder. Top Tip ‘Always go for a waterproof mascara when you’re at a festival – it’ll see you through the evening and a thick application will give your eyes a good frame.’


Laura Hayden...

i n t e r v i e w b y g e org e dr i v e r

‘I kinda dread the whole red lipstick on your teeth thing when I’m using the microphone!’ smiles Laura Hayden whose face, so far today, is prettily naked as she arrives for our festival make-up shoot. It’s a crisp sunny day and she’s looking sort of hot and sort of adorable – tasselled Mulberry moccasins and denim dungarees, hippie California beachy blonde hair draped everywhere. In fact the 25 year-old singer looks so festival ready she could be dropping in on her way to Glasto. Half English, half Spanish, and Barcelona’s It girl answer to Alexa Chung, she’s done the lot –modelling, MTV presenting and,yep, she can even tick off the designer muse box (to Spanish designer Angel Schlesser). And now she’s making music, which she says she’s always been passionate about, with an album on the way and one hell of a loyal Instagram following. We caught up with her to talk all things festivals, Fleetwood Mac and faux pas with bronzer. We’re a little bit obsessed with your instagram… ‘I’ve actually become addicted to Snapchat as well, but my tip for a good selfie is to always take it in front of a window with the light beaming on your face – it erases all bad things!’ Whose festival style would you steal? ‘I love Kate Hudson in Almost Famous. Actually Kate Hudson at any point in her life. I think she’s amazing, so beautiful and completely toned. I like the whole concept of “strong not skinny”. Women are in a powerful place right now and our bodies are supposed to be supporting that.’ apart from a rucksack full of dry shampoo, give me your festival essentials… ‘A good cleanser. I use Dr Sebagh Breakout


T he n ai ls Get the Rihanna ‘just-steppedout-on stage’ look. ‘This twotone nail (see over page) may look tricksy but it’s supersimple,’ says Rimmel’s nail expert, Adam Slee. ‘Apply two coats of base colour, then add random brush strokes of metallic polish. It’s a perfect, fuss-free look for festivals.’ Top Tip ‘Make the brush as dry as possible so that it gives a marbled efect,’ says Slee.

Foaming Cleanser. I try not to wear too much make-up to festivals but after this shoot I kind of want glitter! Also, always wear your least favourite boots, and definitely no heels. I honestly admire women who go to festivals in heeled boots. Oh, and take thermal patches, if you keep them on your lower back they’ll keep you warm for hours.’ even on stage? ‘Maybe not. But I’ve been dying to go barefoot on stage for such a long time. I also never leave home without my MAC brow brush, eyebrows are more important than concealer.’ have you always wanted to sing? ‘I got into music when I was a kid and absolutely loved it. I remember yelling at the top of my voice to Downtown by Petula Clark. Every Saturday morning when my dad was at home I’d make him put it on.By the end he had to get some headphones!’ You write all your own songs. Where do you start? ‘It can honestly start with anything. The amount of times I’ve had a song idea in the shower and I’ve had to shampoo my hair, get out quickly, grab my phone and just find some way of recording it so I don’t forget it. Because once you forget it, it’s gone.’ Festival season is in full swing. What’s at the top of your must-see list? ‘I’m so excited about going to the Isle of Wight Festival. The fact that Fleetwood Mac are headlining make it the one worth going to. Glastonbury’s the only one I’m not going to go to this year but I always said I would never go until I play there! I did go recently and went crazy buying crystals, loads of sunstone and aquamarine, which I wear around my neck because it’s good for healing the throat. I’m becoming one of those crazy ladies who live with crystals.’ You’ve posted pics of your tattoos. What are they? ‘I got my latest one, on my left hand, when I was in Venice Beach in LA. It’s Morse code that means hour in Spanish. I’ve also got a skull on my finger. I wanted a Stormtrooper helmet with a skull but it would have had to be really big and I’m not that committed to Star Wars! My sister has a matching one. They’re called Ben and Jerry, like the ice cream.’ any secret beauty disasters? ‘I think learning how to use bronzer has been a faux pas for all of us – a real journey. I’ve definitely done the orange Oompa Loompa look, but I think we’ve all been there. I’m still a little scared of bronzers…’

BeAUTY Th e su nse T e Y e A festival is one place where you know you can get away with rainbow shades on your eyes. ‘We decided to opt for colours that you wouldn’t always go for in everyday life but that’s the beauty of festival make-up,’ says Piggott, who used a mishmash of softly blended oranges and pinks that had more intense pops of colour at the inner and outer corners. Top Tip ‘For such statement colours, you want the skin to look super clean and fresh so I’d always start by using a primer as it will help to even everything out without looking caked in make-up,’ she says.

if your skin is…Pale Foundation with a pink undertone, such as Max Factor’s Facefnity All Day Flawless in 45 Warm Almond, gives fair complexions a natural-looking porcelain fnish. Warm things up with pink blush on the cheeks. Fancy a red lip but don’t want to look like a china doll? ‘With paler skin, sheer washes of colour work well on lips, so go with a slightly paler berry shade,’ says Caroline.

ALL BASES COVERED Ssssh! We’ve found the secret to flawless make-up for every skin tone…

inding the right shade of foundation can be a bit like tracking down the perfect pair of jeans. Or Mr Right. When you know, you just kind of know, don’t you? And fnding your perfect ‘I just woke up like this’ foundation is no different. So when a gamechanging cover up comes along, you know it’s a keeper. With its widest range of shades ever, Max Factor’s Facefnity All Day Flawless 3 in 1 Foundation isn’t one size fts all, it’s a multitasking base (a primer, foundation and concealer in one) that’s got you covered, whatever your skin tone. Tell-tale tidemarks and dodgy colour matches are offcially a thing of the past. Just like that amazing pair of jeans, when you’ve nailed the basics, it’s easy to rock any look effortlessly, even a red lip. This season’s freshest take on the classic glam look – fawless skin, a soft eye and sheer red lip – was seen everywhere on catwalks, from Dolce & Gabbana to Valentino, thanks to Max Factor global creative design director Pat McGrath. So, with a bit of help here from Max Factor make-up artist Caroline Barnes, and the perfect foundation for your skin tone added to your beauty bag, there’s no reason why you can’t work the look yourself. Brushes at the ready, ladies.

if your skin is….olive According to Caroline, ‘Caramel colours are the most complementary.’ Working with the yellow tones in olive skin, Max Factor’s Facefnity All Day Flawless in 90 Toffee helps banish any imperfections. Longerlasting, exact-match coverage with a velvety fnish? Win, win. Now all you need is a sweep of blush.Choose a shade with a peachy undertone for the perfect fnish.

if your skin is…dark ‘ ‘The darker the skin tone, the deeper the pigments you can get away with,’ says Caroline. ‘A dark chocolate eye is perfect, but avoid foundations with a cool tone as they’ll look ashy on the skin.’ Max Factor’s Facefnity All Day Flawless in 100 has a warm base that blends into darker skin tones seamlessly. Finish the look by sweeping a concentrated pigment shadow, such as Bronze Excess Shimmer, across eyelids for a summer update on the classic smoky look. Sultry eyes are as easy as that.

bAck to bAsics Still got questions? We asked Dr David Eccleston, Cosmetic Physician and Clinical Director at MediZen, for the lowdown

Q: Are fAciAl fillers sAfe?

‘Your practitioner will discuss any safety concerns you have. Juvéderm facial fllers are meticulously clinically tested and when administered by a qualifed practitioner, very well accepted by skin.’

Q: will it be pAinful?

‘The treatments are relatively painless. Some practitioners use a numbing cream to initially reduce the sensation of the injection but many prefer to skip the anaesthetic, especially as some dermal fllers already contain a small amount of local anaesthetic.’

skin sos

best face forward If you don’t know your way around the world of injectables, don’t panic, we’ve got all the answers you need right here


et’s face it, when our skin looks good we feel… great. But the ravages of too much sun, stress and, yep, one too many mojitos, can take their toll, leaving us wanting a little more help. So if you do feel as though you’ve reached the stage where you’d like to give your skin an extra boost, fllers could be your next step. Juvéderm is a range of facial fllers that revitalise your skin for a much more youthful result. They’re made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occuring sugar in the body that helps achieve and maintain a fresher look by plumping and smoothing the skin. Skin naturally loses volume as we get older, leading to the development of fne lines, wrinkles and a slightly hollowed look. You can’t put your fnger on it, but you don’t look as fresh-faced as you used to – which is where facial fllers come in.

They help to give you a more youthful looking complexion and add volume to areas that are less full than they used to be. Attitudes these days are changing and now women in their thirties and forties want to look good for their age – refreshed and radiant. So what exactly are facial fllers and how do they work? Hyaluronic acid is injected into the skin to help fll lines and subtly tweak the contours of the face. Juvéderm fllers fall into the semi-permanent category as the effects can last up to two years, depending on what you have done and which product you choose. There’s no one size fts all approach – the fllers are able to deliver tailor-made results. What’s important is that you discuss in depth the results you want to achieve with your qualifed and experienced practitioner beforehand.

Q: How long do tHey lAst?

‘The results last between 18 and 24 months depending on the area treated and which Juvéderm product is used. Towards the end of that period the effects begin to soften, at which point you could consider a “top up”.’

Q: Are tHere Any side effects?

‘The area may feel numb after the treatment due to the anaesthetic and may appear slightly red and tender but this subsides after a few hours. Side effects are usually temporary and clear within a few days but can include tenderness, redness, swelling and bruising on the injection site.’

Q: How mucH do tHey cost?

‘The price of each treatment varies according to the volume of product needed to achieve the desired effect.’

Boogie Nights was the unexpected 1997 box-ofce hit that charted the rise (yep, we know) and fall of Mark Wahlberg’s adult entertainer character Dirk Diggler through the golden age of porn in the 70s. But despite Dirk’s impressive physical attributes, it was his co-star Rollergirl (Heather Graham, above), who stole the show with her beguiling mix of babe from Venice Beach meets Studio 54. ‘To help us prepare, director Paul Thomas Anderson gave us access to 70s flm clips, including porn,’ says head make-up artist on the flm, Tina Roesler Kerwin. ‘For Heather’s character, the aim was to give her a fresh look. The main focus was on her eyes, but it was hard to miss her luscious lips.’ Hairstylist to the stars Ben Cooke says, ‘Rollergirl’s hair has that 70s one-length look. To achieve it, tong the mid-lengths and brush through to give it that retro width.’ Combine with two accent braids and remember: never take your skates of. InSt yle july 2015

I eat spelt or rye bread, not wheat, and have lots of veg and salad. Sometimes I have pasta but with ham and broccoli – I don’t do carb on carb. I don’t have a sweet tooth so I’m lucky, but if I had my way I’d have pizza and pasta for breakfast, lunch and dinner, with cheese! That’s what I crave.’ ‘I’M bonkers about juIcIng. I got into it when I lived in LA – I’d juice three times a day. In London, I have a NutriBullet (£99, highstreettv. com), which I got from my mother-in-law for Christmas. I make juices with coconut water, kale, spinach, kiwi, banana and blueberries, so I leave the house with that in my hand.’

He’s a real motivator – for him, his body is a temple.’ ‘I lIke to screaM obscenItIes when I work out, so my trainer and I go to a gym on the outskirts of London. My big fear is running into people I know. It drives my husband mad because he wants us to work out together.

et’s talk skin – how do you maintain your glow? ‘I’ve been using Olay’s face wash and serums for a long time. Both my grandmother and my mother used the brand when I was growing up, so it was one of the frst things I ever put on my face. It’s such a big symbol of femininity to me.’ And you’re famously a brunette. Have you ever been a different shade? ‘I had a red tint done for an acting job when I was 21. I haven’t coloured my hair since because it took so long to get my original shade back. It turned even more red and then orange in the process – it was not pretty!’ You’ve been on Broadway, too. How does stage make-up differ from the red carpet? ‘When I’ve been on stage, I’ve often done my own make-up. I thought I’d have to load it on but it’s a lot lighter than you’d think. In fact, it’s only slightly heavier than what I’d wear in real life. I enjoy doing my own make-up because it’s a chance to create that character and get into the mood of the piece, but when I was on stage I would call a make-up artist for tips and write them all down just to be sure it would look OK.’ You must have a wealth of beauty tips from all your time spent in the make-up chair. What’s the best tip you’ve learned? ‘Blush, blush, blush! It wakes you up and makes you look alive.’ Any others that you would pass on to your daughter? ‘Drink lots of water, be healthy, be proud of yourself and always keep your mascara handy.’ How do you stay healthy? ‘I eat meat and I eat normally, but all in moderation.

Tired of the Tropicana glow? Ditch heavy bronzer and ease yourself into summer with this faux ‘just been in the sun’ look. Jules Heptonstall, St Tropez’s celebrity tanner and skin-fnishing expert, tells us how

hit the Bottle

‘It’s cool to have freckles again,’ says Heptonstall. ‘They’re fresh and youthful. But instead of exposing yourself to sun damage, get them from a bottle.’ (Gisele uses this trick to look years younger.) ‘Apply freckles on your decolletage and the tops of the arms where the sun would naturally hit.’

Build up a Base

‘This is a good transitional look,’ afrms Heptonstall. You can apply freckles on their own for the start of summer or if you’re a tanning newbie and afraid of too much colour. If you’re going on holiday or love a dark glow, apply a base tan frst. ‘Use a gradual tanner for two to four days before you apply freckles to take the edge of of winter-weary skin.’ MOUSSE

Self Tan Express Advanced Bronzing Mousse, £33, St Tropez (

prep work

Go for an oil-free sugar scrub. ‘It’ll create a smooth, even complexion and remove any tan from the last time you applied,’ says Heptonstall. On the day of tanning don’t moisturise. ‘It acts as a flm so the tan won’t penetrate as deeply or last as long.’

add some variety

‘Use a self-tan mousse to tailor the depth of the freckles,’ says Heptonstall. ‘For lighter skin tones leave the colour on for one hour. For darker complexions leave it on for three hours. Or apply fecks in stages every hour for up to three hours so you get a natural gradient of freckles. Always shower it of afterwards.’

To create your freckles you’ll need an oil paintbrush. ‘A make-up brush won’t work – it’ll soak up the tan and you need it to sit on top of the brush,’ advises Heptonstall. ‘We used palm-sized paintbrushes backstage at Preen but you don’t need to go that big – a 5cm-wide brush will still work to fick colour onto your skin.

You’re not tanning all over (if you opt out of a base colour), so this fake tan won’t last as long as other types.

GYM for your SKIN e all look forward to the summer – soaring temperatures, hot sun (well, most of the time) and al fresco cocktails. The down side? Having lots more skin on show. And it’s not just your arms and legs – a problem complexion (dry patches and sensitivity caused by heat and humidity) can keep us from nailing the natural look. But the good news is you can follow our tips below for beautiful glowing skin in just 30 days.

The cool down

‘Sweating is great for removing toxins through the skin,’ says Dr Wade. But it’s not so good for sensitive skin if it’s allowed to stick around and breed unwanted bacteria. Straight after your gym session, wash your face with cold water to tighten any open pores and use a cleanser like Cetaphil’s Gentle Skin Cleanser. Using your ring finger, dot Cetaphil’s Moisturising Lotion* on your forehead, cheeks and chin, then massage in. Packed with glycerol for serious hydration, it easily sinks into skin. Start your regime now and you’ll be glowing with skin confidence by the time summer hots up. Cetaphil are so confident that you’ll see a difference, they are offering a 30-day moneyback guarantee – even if the bottle is empty.


The Warm-Up


Sensitive or not, skin should be make-up free before you set foot on the treadmill. ‘Working out in your foundation clogs pores, causing potential breakouts,’ says Dr Martin Wade, a dermatologist at The London Skin and Hair Clinic. A gentle skincare routine is the best place to start to get your skin in tip-top condition. We love the soap-free Gentle Skin Cleanser* from Cetaphil for its mild yet effective approach to clean skin. Tying your hair back away from your face keeps any oils or grease from dirtying your freshly washed skin.




The WorkouT

‘Did you know that your oxygen intake is directly linked to the health of your skin?’ asks Dr Wade. Cardiovascular exercise increases blood fow to the skin, giving newly emerging skin cells a boost. Drink plenty of water as it’s easy to become dehydrated when exercising in hot weather.

For a dewy (not greasy) look, make-up pro Florrie White says: ‘Always use a mattifying primer to start. It prevents foundation from pooling in lines or sliding down your face.’ Then use a long-lasting, hydrating foundation. We love Rimmel London’s Lasting Finish 25hr Foundation, right, £7.99 ( Beneft’s Porefessional License to Blot, left, £15.50 ( is also a must-have. It’s an instant blotting stick with a triangular tip to target oil-prone areas like the sides of your nose. Genius.

Copping eight hours of beauty sleep isn’t easy the night before any big event, so try two to three spritzes of The White Company’s Lavender Pillow Mist, £15 ( ‘The scent [of lavender] improves your quality of sleep,’ says Dr Guy Meadows from The Sleep School.

Add bulk ( to h A i r)

For beachy waves or a Grace Kelly updo that’ll last right past the best man’s speech, you need to prep. ‘Use a thickening spray to plump every strand,’ says Bea Watson, Aveda’s global styling educator. ‘It’ll give you a fuller chignon.’ Spritz Aveda’s Thickening Tonic Styling Spray, £20 ( into mid-lengths and ends before blow-drying.




cAll for bAck-up If your dress calls for skin on show, you’ll want to keep the dreaded ‘bacne’ at bay. Wendy Brooks, Origins global product development director, suggests using a charcoalbased scrub. We love Origins Clear Improvement Detoxifying Charcoal Body Scrub, £26 ( ‘It works like a magnet to draw out oil and dirt,’ she says.

To avoid a TOWIE tan, do a test run in advance. If you’re happy with the result, book in with the same expert 72 to 48 hours before the big day. If you’re super pale, stick to an at-home routine so you can build up colour gradually. Try Aerin’s Gradual Tan For Face & Body, £42 ( – it’s great for a soft, streak-free glow.

M Ast e r you r M A k e-u p Kate Middleton famously did her own make up on her wedding day, having had a few lessons. If you want to DIY, visit Chanel’s Covent Garden or Burlington Arcade boutiques to trial the bespoke wedding make-up service (£50 for a 75 minute session, redeemable against products). You’ll chat through everything from dress to venue to texture of lippie and foundation shade, all jotted down – in true Chanel style – in a beautifully bound notebook. Tip: wear a white top to your appointment to get an idea of the colour you’ll be wearing on the day.


sw i tch to wAterproof We love a good cry at a wedding. Try Max Factor False Lash Efect Waterproof Mascara, £10.99 ( or Guerlain’s Cils D’Enfer Waterproof, £18.50 (01932 233 887). ‘Use eyelash curlers – like a push-up bra for eyes,’ says make-up guru Charlotte Tilbury.

Bring a pot of salted water to the boil and blanch the broccoli until just soft (1-2 minutes). Then, remove it with a slotted spoon, leaving the water in the pot, and refresh it under cold running water to stop the cooking. Once it has cooled, cut it into chunks and set aside. 2. Bring the pot of water back to the boil and add the pasta. Cook until just al dente. 3. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a sauté pan. Add the garlic cloves and cook to infuse the oil with their favour – do not allow them to colour. Remove the garlic from the pan and add the anchovies and chillies. Heat gently until the anchovies have dissolved into the oil, then add the broccoli and cook everything until heated through. 4. Drain the orecchiette, reserving a bit of the pasta cooking water. Add the pasta to the pan with the sauce and use a little of the water if it seems dry. Season to taste and serve.

Emily gets stuck into blood-orange Bellinis at Spring with Radio 1’s super-cute Alice Levine

t’s not hard to spot Alice Levine, even in the impressively vast environs of Spring at Somerset House. She has the sort of statement hair that screams meeting point – a ferce, gorgeous copper, teased into a gentle, Mad Men-style beehive. ‘Oh God, it’s totally fake I’m afraid!’ she confesses. ‘I’m quite dark brown really, but I aim for somewhere between Karen Elson and Christina Hendricks.’ We’ve chosen Spring partly because you have to sell a kidney to get a table (always a good sign), but mainly because it’s the new baby of Michelin-starred chef Skye Gyngell of the Petersham Nurseries Café. But where Petersham was all earth foors and shabbychic tables, this is fne dining on an expenseaccount scale, with lavish globe chandeliers, immaculate salmon-pink banquettes and a Parthenon-sized marble bar. Alice is straight in with her drinks order: ‘Ooh, shall we have blood-orange Bellinis?’ I’m secretly relieved (the four worst words at the start of a lunch date are ‘Just a Diet Coke’), but I’m also worried that she may be setting herself up for a drunken afternoon behind the decks. But she reassures me that, as a weekend host, she’s allowed to

get as messy as she likes midweek. Alice seems very removed from the staggering-out-of-Chiltern-Firehouse brigade of DJs. ‘God, I’d be so intimidated by a place like that. I get social anxiety – don’t tell anyone at Radio 1 or I’ll lose my job!’ She’s looked up today’s menu online – ‘I am a total swot; I was head girl and the one telling on the people behind the bike sheds. I don’t have an ounce of cool.’ She’s also an obsessive foodie. She runs supper clubs with presenter Laura Jackson. ‘We did a meal for 70 the other night. My boyfriend’s a chef, and he’ll sometimes say, “Alice, you know you’ve only got the oven on at 90˚C? That’s going to take three days.”’ But she’s happiest knocking up simple things like a roast chicken. We order octopus with capers, olives and Roseval potatoes for her – ‘Taste this texture!’ – and malfatti with slow-cooked Datterini tomatoes and ricotta salsa for me. Malfatti means ‘badly made’ in Italian, but they’re actually delicious little gnocchi-like morsels. We knock back wine greedily, and Alice talks me through her outft. ‘Senso shoes, and this skirt is from a charity shop. My mum said to me, “You can’t wear a charity

shop skirt to lunch with a fashion magazine!” But I once found a 70s Burberry trench for £2.50 in a charity shop – I tell people that story practically every day.’ When the Radio 1 gig started two years ago, it was quite a baptism of fre. Alice interviewed Quentin Tarantino in the week when he’d walked out of an interview with C4’s Krishnan Guru-Murthy. But she found Quentin charming, ‘I played Hungry Hippos with him – he couldn’t get enough of it.’ We move on to our main courses – Alice has opted for halibut with spinach, chilli and preserved lemon dressing, which she tells me is ‘total heaven – the fsh is so lemony and the chilli kick on the spinach is amazing’ – and I go for the beef sirloin with Jerusalem artichokes and horseradish with crème fraiche. She steers me gently through my fear of horseradish like an encouraging mum – ‘Come on! I’m sure the crème fraiche will soften it’ – and she’s right. The beef is tender and beautiful and the Jerusalem artichokes add an unusual Mediterranean lightness to it. After more wine, she tells me about the time she interviewed Justin Bieber and he said: ‘I’m single and I’m ready to mingle’ (‘Imagine, I could have been Alice Bieber!’), then realises it’s time to go to her meeting with Comic Relief. She insists I visit the loos before I leave: ‘ They have these amazing pink foor tiles! Later that day I get an email from her agent – she’s sent me a picture of the tiles. If she were head girl at my school, I’d be very happy to be in her gang. Spring at Somerset House, Lancaster Place, Strand, London WC2R 1LA. Alice Levine is on BBC Radio 1 at 1pm on Saturdays and Sundays

Here’s one sHe made earlier... AlIce’S quIck And eASy teA Pierce the skins of the tomatoes and chop the aubergine into 2cm cubes; mix on a large baking tray. Quarter the garlic and space the pieces evenly in the mixture. Pour a generous amount of olive oil over it all, so that it glistens.

Season with salt (don’t be mean!) Cook at 180˚C for 45 minutes to an hour, stirring occasionally. Put the spaghetti in boiling water. When the tomatoes start to caramelise and the aubergine is soft and pulpy, it’s ready (if it starts

to stick, add a splash of water). Stir in the spaghetti and drizzle extra-virgin oil over it. (Option: top with your favourite fresh herb; basil and parsley are lovely.) Enjoy with a rocket and avocado salad. InSt yle July 2015

Rooftop pools, awesome architecture and secret speakeasies, George Driver jetted off to Barcelona… S AT U R DAY 6 a m In my book, there’s nothing better than getting up early to go on holiday (cue Madonna being played on repeat for the next two days). Bleary eyed but equipped with oversized sunglasses and SPF, it’s time to escape to Barcelona. Adiós, England!

11am Sunnies on, it’s 20˚C and totally gorgeous. Time to hit the rooftop pool and treat myself to a cheeky glass of Barcelona’s fnest – and chicest – fzz, that’s also the locals’ best-kept secret, Freixenet Mia Moscato. Lounging in the sun, I’m feeling fabulous. Well I am on holiday.

2pm Traditional Spanish patatas bravas and calamari feasted upon, it’s time to explore! Fantastical towers and serious tile envy welcome me at Gaudí’s swirling block of art nouveau apartments, La Pedrera. Inspired by the sea, it’s hard not to get swept up in the Pinterest-worthy seaweed balconies and ice-cream swirl sculptures. That’s my interiors inspo sorted!

4pm Back down to the hustle and bustle of the city, I’m off to La Rambla for souvenirs and shopping. Abandoning my attempts at map reading, it’s an easy and relaxed stroll in the sun down the winding streets of the old town, and with such gorgeous sights, I’m more than happy to get a little lost.

6pm With a tiny cactus-flled mug emblazoned with Gaudí’s La Sagrada Família safely stowed in my bag, and a sudden yearning for tapas, it’s time to eat. I quickly change into something a little more chic, add a slick of red lippy and a spritz of Chanel, and it’s out into the balmy Barcelona evening.

7pm Forget the tourist traps, I’ve discovered a secret speakeasy,

complete with old-school cocktail makers, super-smooth jazz and one impressive wine list. Mind made up, I’ve decided to indulge in an LPD (that’s Little Pink Drink), with a frosty glass of Freixenet Mia Pink Moscato. Sweet, bubbly and ice cold, it’s the ideal way to end a glorious frst day, and not a bad start to dinner. Bring on the manchego!

S U N DAY 1 1 a m Up bright and early (ish), I’ve been told there’s only one way to explore the city, and that’s on bike. Just call me Chris Hoy. Donning my best tile-print top, I hop on and meander my way

LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE GIRLS! Freixenet’s Mia, inspired by Barcelona, has been created by wine producer Gloria Collell, who clearly understands the importance of good fzz. With three sparkling wines to choose from, Mia Moscato, Pink Moscato and Fresh & Crisp, each with a candy-coloured top, it’s the fzz to be seen with.

to the beach feeling very Spanish indeed. The glistening waterfront lures me in, and with the local skateboarders and the sky-high palm trees, there’s a defnite Miami-meets-Dalston vibe going on. A quick bask in the sun has me thinking, ‘Maybe I’ll stay a little longer…’

2pm With a dip in the sea ticked off my to-do list, there’s just one sight left to visit before heading back – Parc Güell. A must-see, imagine Gaudí’s storybook architecture meets psychedelic rainbow tiles, surrounded by lush greenery and the best views of the city. Settling on the giant tiled balcony for a refreshment, I’ve got time for one last toast. Here’s to you, Barcelona!
