welcome to the issue

THERE’S SOMETHING so satisfying about finding a dress that makes you feel great whether you’re wearing it for work or a friend’s wedding, this year or next – especially, when the price tag doesn’t make you wince. Even better? When someone else has done the hard work for you. This week’s issue is dedicated to affordable luxury – and our fashion team has spent weeks uncovering the cult labels and items that we guarantee are worth the investment. Think of it as your guilt-free shopping list. @hattie_brett / feedback@graziamagazine.co.uk…

over to you...

NEW YOU, NEW ME! I’m not the best with change. I’ve had the same bobbed haircut for, well, since I was 11 actually, and pink lipstick is back in, right? So I was at first cynical about changes to my beloved mag. But... you’ve nailed it! The Life Skills section is perfection and I loved the interview with Sara Cox on the final page and What, this old thing? But best of all, Beauty School will finally free me from the black winged eyeliner I’ve been sporting since the ’90s. Clare STRONGER TOGETHER Thank you for printing Martha Hunt: ‘I feel empowered by my scars’ (8 April). I too have scoliosis and underwent two major spinal operations in my teens. It’s so good to finally see public figures such as Princess Eugenie and…

forever friends?

The Spice Girls rift reveals an essential truth about friendship (15 April) struck a chord with me. Sometimes you no longer feel the way you once did about your best friend, the person you grew up with and have been close with for forever. A reason would make it easier and make you feel less guilty. It would make the estranged relationship less strange and painful. But it’s a fact that sometimes you just grow apart from people, as the Spice Girls probably have found. You get older, you change and mature and all of a sudden you find yourself not having much in common with someone you once did. This is just a casualty of growing up but, for some reason, ‘growing apart’ is the hardest thing to come…

Take a look at history. Traditionally, women in science haven’t been given credit for their discoveries: Rosalind Franklin was robbed of the recognition she deserved for her DNA findings and Jocelyn Bell Burnell’s male supervisor won a Nobel Prize based on her astronomy breakthroughs. That’s why we were relieved last week to see the world applaud the incredible part 29-year-old Katie Bouman’s work played in photographing a black hole. The computer scientist at MIT helped develop an algorithm that created the first-ever image of its kind. Let’s hope this inspires more girls and women to get into STEM – and close the gender black hole in science.…

you either love game of thrones, or you’re wrong

THE MORNING AFTER the first episode of the final series of Game Of Thrones screens: and, oh! Here I am, wondering if I’ve ever loved anything this much! This passionately! This purely! I don’t just mean ‘anything on telly’, either. I mean, anything at all. My partner? Weeeeeell… My friends? Meh. My career? Oh, it’s fine. But Thrones? Thrones? With its passion and its fury, its theme tune that makes my goosebumps rise and its plot lurches that sicken and thrill me in turn? With its scale and its wit, its ruthlessness and its romance, its sex and its gore, its ice, its vice, its outfits? Its nuanced morality, its characters that are neither all hero, nor all villain, but rather, paeans to the endless complexities of the human condition? Its…
