enjoy the best of autumn

Whoever said ‘never meet your heroes because they’re sure to disappoint you’ must, I reckon, have had the wrong ones! Or maybe they were living at the wrong time. Because I can honestly say that the longer I’m in this role and the more of my own heroes I get to meet, the more inspired I become. This month’s cover star, Emily Maitlis, is a great example: for journalists, she’s a role model and beacon of success, and for women everywhere, she’s someone to admire for reaching the pinnacle of her field. Having read her book, Airhead: The Imperfect Art Of Making News, I was expecting someone fiercely bright, determined and who knew her own mind to arrive at our photoshoot. She was all those things, but the icing on…

ASTRID CLARKE Don’t worry about your weight or your looks. You will grow up to be a confident, stylish, sexy lady! KAREN TEAR Believe in your capabilities. I took my English A level in my 40s and got a BA in humanities in my 50s. I’d never have thought that was possible when I was younger. It took courage and determination, but eventually I found the self-belief I didn’t know I had. JACKI BOWYER You will survive and you’ll get through everything.

‘i love experiences. i want my eyes to be opened all the time’

This has been the year that Emily Maitlis became the woman to watch for so many reasons. In March, she was promoted to lead presenter of Newsnight as part of the show’s first all-female lineup. Since then, there have been some golden moments: most memorably, her eye roll when an MP failed to give a straight answer when asked about Brexit. Oh, how we all understood her exasperation! But if Emily, 48, can seem steely and determined on TV, she is charm itself in person. Arriving at the GH photoshoot in a T-shirt and shorts, she is warm and friendly. She laughs a lot, particularly about herself. It’s clear she lives life at full pelt, juggling her job on Newsnight with family life. Married to Mark Gwynne, an investment banker, she is…

grab your coat!

The cape The cape-style coat is set to become this year’s favourite cover-up. They were all over the autumn/winter catwalks in long and dramatic styles, but the high street has some wearable options that are less superhero and more superstar. The shorter style works well with skirts or dresses, and adds shape to trousers and jeans. The colour block Why nail just one new trend when you can tick off three in one go. Colour blocking? Yes. Pastel pink? Got it. Straight-cut coat? Consider it done. Great teamed with trousers and box-fresh white trainers, it screams: ‘Oh, this? I just threw it on!’ Your wardrobe needs a coat like this. The statement piece Balance out the dreary weather with a little ray of sunshine in jacket form. Vibrant colours work best with eye-catching prints, so…

how to wear…winter florals

FULL BLOOM Feeling brave? A dramatic floral print will show off your fashion credentials. Moody bloom maxi dresses demand a dramatic cape and heels, but also look chic with pointed flats. Full-on florals too much? Try a pretty patterned watch. OFF-DUTY CHIC For days when you don’t need to dress up but want to feel pulled together, mix a vibrant floral print with a rich berry rollneck to beat the chill. And here’s a style secret for the season: it’s all about wearing knee-length skirts with ankle boots. You heard it here first. SWEET & SUBTLE Ditsy pink blooms will take any out-of-hours look from casual to cool, and they will boost your mood, too! Keep the colour scheme simple and multiple floral prints will flourish together. Bonus: sheer sleeves are sexy but you’re still…
