honesty is bravery

FOR THIS, OUR HONESTY ISSUE, WE’RE TACKLING SOME OF THE BIG GUNS – race, sex, religion – for some real talk. We have men getting very raw and honest about their most intimate body part; our cover star Blake Lively comes clean about when her husband, Ryan Reynolds, makes stuff up about their lives; and Dolly Alderton accepts our challenge to live with her uncomfortable truths for a week – without so much as a “No, I didn’t get that email” passing her lips. Putting this issue together, naturally, had me examining my own relationship with honesty. Like everyone else, I probably tell several little sugar-coated ‘versions of the truth’ in any given week. But I don’t think I’m a routine teller of whoppers. The only one I can think of…

we hear you

Be thankful, feel happy Is This The Happy Booster We All Need? felt close to my heart. Feeling bitter about everyone’s ‘fantastic’ news, I decided to write a daily ‘gratitude list’. Now, I’m thankful for what I have, and enjoying life so much more. Mandy, by email @_GracieWalker_ Love @AlexSteinherr’s SOS routine for those annoying breakouts – will be purchasing! @GlamourMagUK Wonderful Winnie When I brought the Women of the Year Awards issue home, my five-year-old squealed with delight at Winnie Harlow on the cover, saying she wished she could have skin like the ‘superhero’ lady. Hats off for helping educate my daughter on what it means to be beautiful.

le freak, c’est chic!

Every fashionable thing you need to know now When it comes to nightclubs, they don’t get much more legendary than Studio 54. The Manhattan disco, which opened its doors in 1977, was inhabited by the social scene’s most fabulously flamboyant characters, from Rollerena – the ubiquitous roller-skating presence on the dancefloor – to Liza Minnelli and Andy Warhol huddled in banquettes, to Bianca Jagger being led around the club on horseback by a naked stable hand to celebrate her birthday. This was definitely ’70s hedonism at its most bonkers. In her autobiography, Grace Jones says it was “as if every night was an opening night” at Studio 54, with memories of “[Giorgio] Armani welcomed with a drag queen ballet; cakes in the shape of Elizabeth Taylor presented by an army of decorated…

show up. be you.

“Gone are the days when a show’s models were an army of nearidentical mannequins” With hindsight, it feels like a no-brainer – an obvious ‘why didn’t we do this before?’ move. Simone Rocha, while working on the casting for her A/W17 show, decided that she wanted to reflect the all-ages appeal of her clothes by making her model line-up a multi-generational affair. So, alongside girls of the moment such as Lineisy Montero and Olympia Campbell, she enlisted the gloriously poised and elegant Benedetti Barzini, 73, Jan de Villeneuve, 72, and Cecilia Chancellor, 50, in the process conjuring up one of the most refreshing and talked-about moments of the season. And she wasn’t alone: Dries van Noten celebrated his 100th catwalk show by reuniting past muses such as Amber Valletta, Emma Balfour…

meet your new wardrobe hero

JOHNNY COCA is arguably fashion’s greatest whizz kid. In just over two years, the Spanish designer has transformed Mulberry’s quirky Britishness into something thoroughly modern and millennial. His latest collection, for autumn/winter, was a case in point – an ode to the Somerset countryside around the Mulberry factory, mixed with the cool-girl smarts of those working in its London HQ. With eiderdowns, checks, frills and oversized silhouettes in full effect – plus, of course, those delectable, signature bags – it was one of the key shows of the season. So we asked the main man himself to reveal his top tips on getting dressed this season. MENS WEAR IS MAJOR “A woman can wear a man’s jacket and be feminine too. The oversized jacket is great this season. It’s visually striking and…

the 10 commandments

Yes, you will give those Dior-esque berets a whirl, and you will swap your fail-safe jeans for some Prada-esque navy cords. You’ll finally find the colour that’s so you and trade in your navy pea coat for a jazzy new model. Why? Because it’s a new fashion season and, if the shows can teach us anything, it’s that switching up your sartorial norms every now and again is not only a good thing, but it’s also quite easy to do. Your pledges are as follows… “I will become a ‘hat person’” Dior declared the return of the hat by completing every one of its 68 show looks with a black leather beret. Wear with boilersuits and ballgowns alike. “I will revisit the slouch boots of seasons past” They’re back, and bolder than ever. Saint…
