Wishing you a Christmas filled with moments to cherish with your family and friends and just a little me-time too Hello I’m Kath, your new editor. As I’m at the helm of a title I know you’re so passionate about, I thought you might want to know a few things about me: I’m 53, married to an architect and have two teenage children, Gracie and Freddie. I have a wonderful gang of girlfriends who I don’t see enough of because our lives are so hectic, although we do go to a villa in Ibiza every year to properly catch up, drink sangria and gossip for hours on end. In other words, I probably have a lot in common with you. I’m busy, I’m a bit flawed (too much Rioja, not enough exercise) and…

“i've learnt to let go”

As Darcey Bussell, 48, performs a pirouette at our shoot, her delicate red dress swirling as she spins, it’s fair to say we’re all stood around thinking the same thing – how does she look that good? “ Strictly does motivate me to get into shape”, she admits. “Even after six years on the judging panel, I still worry: ‘OMG, I’ve got to put all those beautiful dresses on – how am I going to make myself look decent in them?’”. Darcey’s secret? “Two glasses of water first thing in the morning, walking every day, lots of chicken, fish and greens, no cheesecake for a while (I’m a sucker for it) – and two classes of DDMIX (Diverse Dance Mix) a week.” Darcey launched her aerobic workout programme, DDMIX, in 2015, which…

it’s strictly fabulous

“I wasn’t prepared for all the aches and pains of Strictly” ASTON MERRYGOLD, 29, lives in London with his girlfriend Sarah Richards. They’re expecting their first baby in January. His dance partner is Janette Manrara. STRICTLY STRENGTH? I get a thrill from performing in front of a crowd. AND WEAKNESS? People’s assumption that I’m already a good dancer – I never had to waltz or foxtrot when I was in JLS! EMBARRASSING REAL-LIFE DANCE MOMENT? At a JLS gig, I tried to do a few forward flips in a row… and fell after the last one. BEST PIECE OF ADVICE? Alesha Dixon [2007 Strictly winner] told me, “Just enjoy it. At the end of the day, if you don’t, what was it for?” ANY SURPRISES? The aches and pains. Nothing prepares you for Strictly. TELL US A…

love actually

DRAMA QUEEN • It’s all every woman wants, the big satin skirt. Go all out like you’re going to the ball or look for an understated midi version and team it with a knit. • A sheer blouse? Add a cami underneath. A lace- trimmed finish makes it even more luxurious. ULTIMATE DECADENCE • Could it be the dream dress? Adjustable sleeves, a gathered waist and flattering neckline. • An easy instant update? A bejewelled hairband – you’re never too old. Work it for the party or with a simple black knit the week after. EMERALD HUE • What’s the key to keeping colour looking sophisticated? Wear the same tone from top to toe. • Statement earrings are streaks ahead when it comes to styling know-how. Look for tasselled ones with gleaming gold details. DISCO DIVA • Dazzle everyone in…
