welcome to the issue

ON PAPER, SUMMER dressing sounds a breeze: a dress, a pair of sandals and you’re good to go. But the reality, I find, is often quite different. How to break out of wearing black? Find a holiday dress that will also work outside of annual leave? Or an appropriate and comfortable summer work outfit? It’s tricky territory – and our current changeable weather just adds another layer of complication. So, welcome to our Big Summer Shopping Special, where the fashion team have scoured the shops for the best items out there right now. Including, sadly, a raincoat! @hattie_brett / feedback@graziamagazine.co.uk…

DIVERSITY DILEMMA People have been calling for greater diversity in the types of bodies the dating show presents (‘Love Island was right not to put a plus-size woman in the opening line-up’, 10 June). But the contestants already attract criticism for their – almost perfect – figures. What would happen to the ‘bigger’ contestants? I don’t want to see toxic fatphobia played out on my screen, thanks very much. One guy has already been demonised because he isn’t tall. Heaven forbid! Kymberley Yetton THE LAST RESORT ‘My friend should have been allowed to die by euthanasia’ (17 June) was very thought-provoking, but I’m not sure I agree in the case of children. Mental health problems affect about 1 in 10 children and young people and are often a direct response to what is happening…

letter of the week

PREJUDICE PERSISTS I was pleased to read Daniellé Dash’s article (Love Island shows diversity can’t stop prejudice, 17 June). As a biracial woman, I feel fair representation and white favouritism are an important (however uncomfortable) conversation we all need to have if we actually want to shed our prejudices. Biracial, black and brown people can internalise white ideals in order to navigate society or ‘fit in’ and white people can be oblivious to white supremacy while unknowingly benefiting from it. I will definitely not be watching Love Island until we as a society change the way we see and treat ethnic minorities. Mohini Barr…

“We must take reality TV stars’ mental health seriously Just a week after entering the Love Island villa, Sherif Lanre, 20, was kicked out for ‘breaking the rules’. ‘Which rule?’ viewers clamoured to know. But Sherif and his family stayed tight-lipped, as did the show’s producers, citing their ‘duty of care’ to him. He returned to London with the paparazzi on his trail, his life altered after even such a short stint on the show, with millions of us now desperate to discover what went on. Yes, Love Island is based on gossip and rumour, whispers and conjecture. But if we are to respect the mental health of its contestants – which is crucial, given the suicides of two former participants – we must respect their privacy, too.”…

a user’s – or should that be loser’s ? – guide to emoji

OK EVERYONE, you’ve had your fun – but it’s time you all stopped using emoji. I mean: all of you, and all of them – and now. Emoji are facile, ugly, ineloquent and crass, cliché, saccharine, dishonest and babyish, and at some point over the last year their usage has become so oppressively widespread as to imbue them with a tyrannical quality. ‘It’s like, if I don’t respond to every last WhatsApp anyone ever sends me with a s***-ton of emoji – smiley face, kissy face, cartwheel lady, TWINS! – I’m being actively rude,’ said my friend Alex, who loathes emoji, despite being quite young. Emoji are awful. Let me tell you why (using actual words, in a sequence, never once substituting any for a crude visual of an eggplant, even…
