YOU CAN’T HAVE ESCAPED the Zara polka-dot dress this summer. You know, the one that’s become so ubiquitous, there’s now even an Instagram account documenting each time it’s spotted in the wild. Zara won’t officially say how many have now been sold, but given the brand has just announced it’s releasing the dress in the reverse colourway, it’s fair to assume it’s been a sales sensation. But since when did it become not just acceptable – but desirable – to wear the exact same item as everyone else? On page 46, our fashion news and features director Laura Antonia Jordan analyses how copycat culture became cool (and the art of copyquette). @hattie_brett / feedback@graziamagazine.co.uk…

A WORD ON THE LAW I was disturbed by Grazia view: ‘Why the law must put victims, not suspects, first’ (12 Aug). I’m a criminal barrister, and the reality is that false allegations ARE made, for a number of different reasons, and those that turn out to be untrue can ruin lives. There’s no doubt we need to improve how allegations are investigated, but in my view, what’s far more damaging is the myth perpetuated by the Victims’ Commissioner that if victims don’t give their phone to police, their allegation won’t be investigated. Not true, and far more likely to discourage people from coming forward than anonymity for suspects – who are, after all, in law, innocent until proven guilty. Laura Hocknell FORGET THEM NOT I was glad to read ‘We need to…

the alternative aa

Just read Things you only know if you’ve finally conquered your alcohol problem (12 Aug)… I was in denial for a long time about my drinking and for five years, I went through hell. In 2014, age 42, I underwent detox and have stayed sober. Sadly, AA is not the answer for many people. I worked in an addictions clinic and noticed that there was a severe lack of recovery provision, so myself and three friends set up The Recovery Circle C.I.C, a community which aims to provide therapy, support and sober events.…

“The ‘dumb dad’ trope damages us all Last week, two TV adverts were banned for harmful gender stereotyping. Philadelphia spread showed dozy dads accidentally leaving a baby on a conveyor belt. Volkswagen juxtaposed adventurous male astronauts with a woman sitting by a pram. Sadly, these tired stereotypes have a huge impact on how we all see parenthood – discussing the ads, Today presenter John Humphrys commented that women ‘do a better job [of childcare] than men’. Yet, a study last week found men are just as capable of multi-tasking as women. So let’s finally call bedtime on the idea that men are useless at childcare – and let’s see more female astronauts on screen.”…

like the song (doesn’t) say: don’t be happy, do worry

AS THE WORLD BURNS around us, as the climate emergency ramps up and plastic silts the sea, as Trump tweets and lost young men take knives to school here, and guns to malls over there; as Boris teeters on the brink of who knows what and the ifs and buts and whys and whens of Brexit split us in ways we did not know we could be split… As our data is harvested and manipulated in an unknowable endgame and it gets increasingly tricky to tell conspiracy theory from sneaky slow-burning genuine threat to our humanity: I have an admission to make. In the midst of all that, while mired in the depths of this worldwide full-blown multicoloured shit-show: I’m (whisper it) happy. I feel guilty just thinking the words: never…
