let’s focus on the positives

NOT ALL THE IDEAS YOU SEE IN GLAMOUR ARE MINE – I work with an amazing group of talented people who all bring their A-game every day – but Is It Time To Quit The News? on p81 was. It came from a selfish place; as Editor, I do sometimes indulge my personal curiosities and issues within these pages. But when I do, it’s because I have an instinct that it can’t be just me feeling or thinking about something. This feature relates to the news and whether or not it’s really of any use to us. I’ve been feeling, increasingly, that the answer for me is no. This feels like a hugely contentious thing to say. Not to mention ignorant, especially coming from a journalist, right? But hear me out. Right…

“in awe of our 999 heroes”

I thought I was having a stressful year with wedding planning, work and house buying. But Superheroes Are Real was the reality check I needed. I was in tears reading it – the strength and bravery of these women is awe-inspiring. They reminded me what it really means to be tested, and it inspired me to help those around me, even if it’s just offering time to a friend in need. It’s too easy to be blinkered by our own ‘problems’. Laura, by email This month’s star letter wins a limited-edition GHD Platinum Styler Gift Set.

the va-va sisterhood

ANNA DELLO RUSSO ADR’s style might be out-there, but she’s refined the art of the clash. Pink vs red, sequins vs quilting, evening vs all-terrain: on paper, this should be a mess. But from claret and peacock-blue combos at Calvin Klein to a denim boiler suit (plus veil) at Adam Selman, high-contrast clashing is just the thing to stand out this party season. Try silk against patent leather, knits against sequins, and corduroy against brocade. YOU’LL NEED A Pantone chart A/W17 CATWALK INCARNATION Christopher Kane, Versace CHER If I could turn back time, I would party with Cher. Or, perhaps, follow her around the shops and work out where she got her wardrobe from. Maximalist party dressing doesn’t get better than a sheer sequinned dress. YOU’LL NEED Nude underwear (or a very thorough wax) A/W17…

names to know

Galvan The new go-to for all things slinky is London label Galvan, whose velvet suiting is spot-on for women who don’t ‘do’ dresses (though its slips are rather good, too). Eschew neutrals and head for strawberry pink, burnt orange and olive green instead. And don’t be afraid to clash them. Attico Launched in 2016 by It girls Giorgia Tordini and Gilda Ambrosio, Attico is known for elevated pyjama dressing. This season, though, it’s ditched the crushed velvet in favour of rainbow-striped sequins, jewelled pouch bags and a level of maximalism only an Italian could conjure. Mandarina After years in style purgatory, kitten heels have made a comeback, to the joy of our hamstrings. Mandarina’s crystal toes and jewel-toned velvets will amp up any outfit this season. Halpern Michael Halpern may have only graduated last year, but Matches…

mr armani will dress you now

Giorgio Armani is often regarded as the ‘inventor’ of red-carpet dressing. In 1980, just five years after launching his label, Armani was called in to dress a relatively unknown Richard Gere, who was starring in American Gigolo. The job became an effective, albeit unintended, advertisement for his fledgling brand. In the decades since, Armani has added everyone from Céline Dion and Beyoncé to Millie Bobby Brown to his client list, and he made nothing short of a sartorial clean sweep at this year’s Oscars, dressing three out of ten of the Best Actress and Best Supporting Actress nominees. But Armani’s most celebrated red-carpet look of all time? Jodie Foster’s simple yet elegant tuxedo jacket at the 1992 Oscars. “I had suggested that she wear it, and she trusted me,” the…
