HERMIONE EYRE Hermione talks to sassy ex-spook Charlotte Bingham (page 48) What’s your worst habit? I tangle wires with my personal force field. What phrase or word do you overuse the most? ‘If you eat your broccoli, then maybe…’ What’s your signature dance move? Bouncy. What super-power would you most like to have? Stock-market prescience. GUY PEWSEY Guy raises that most important of questions – which Mitford sister are you? (page 70) What’s your favourite joke? What did the leper say to the prostitute? ‘Keep the tip.’ What would be your death-row meal? A bucket of fried chicken and a bottle of Ruinart Rosé.

here’s looking at… shonagh marshall

Fashion curator Shonagh Marshall’s aim is to ‘capture an audience’s imagination in different ways’ – which means exhibitions, films, books and any other media she can think of. Shonagh learnt her craft while archiving the Alexander McQueen collection for the Met’s Savage Beauty exhibition. Then came work with the Isabella Blow Foundation and at Somerset House. Since then she has set up her own company, Ground Floor Project, recently putting on Posturing: Photographing the Body in Fashion about posing in contemporary photography, in collaboration with the Outnet. She’s based in Spitalfields and her twin obsessions are text panels and public swimming pools. As Daphne Guinness (who owns the Isabella Blow collection) has pointed out, she could fill a book with her pool reviews. Either that or a radio show on…

Find your zeal for teal because it’s not just back – it’s back with blue bells on. The appeal of this teal is partly the feel: satins and silken tassels, sequins and velvet. Spring’s big teal reveal has a party spiel. Fancy-schmancy with a hint of genteel. Bows and epaulettes, sashes and slits. So let out a peal and unseal that zeal. Because we kneel before teal and although it’s surreal, we cannot repeal the real deal… that is teal. PS Even smalls we conceal are also teal. So when it’s time for the big reveal… guess what? Yup, teal. STILL-LIFES: PIXELEYES. PHOTOGRAPH: GETTY IMAGES. EDITED BY FRANCESCA WHITE…

pencil skirts

Oh, so pencil skirts are at it again. Playing up. Acting out. Every now and then, they get tired of being the straight woman and make a bid for the spotlight. Frankly, it’s all a bit show-offy. Nothing is too busy for them this season. They have set their sights on brocade, lace, sheer and wispy, barely there chiffon. They have claimed bold prints and pattern-du-jour chevrons, not to mention sequins and gingham. And to make matters worse, they are demanding clashingly bright bags, ankle socks, snazzy heels, enormous earrings and pouffy shirts as their closest companions. It’s an ensemble of exhibitionism. Bold move, guys. Very bold indeed… STILL-LIFES: PIXELEYES. PHOTOGRAPH: GETTY IMAGES. EDITED BY FRANCESCA WHITE…
