vallivana de la figuera

‘I took inspiration from summers at my grandparents’ house’ You can hear the trickle of water, the pleasing scrunch of gravel underfoot, the light breeze caressing the leaves. You catch the soft scent of lilacs, cedar and wisteria, of healthy, moist earth. And all around you, everywhere you look, the garden is a feast for the eyes. The moment you enter garden designer Vallivana de la Figuera’s personal wonderland, in a charming Swiss village just outside Geneva, you understand why her talents are in demand across Europe and as far away as the exclusive Hamptons enclave near New York. Though the views here of majestic Mont Blanc and the sublime Lake Geneva are very different from the landscapes of Spain’s Galicia region, where Vallivana grew up, it was to that rainy and…

london film festival

The London Film Festival was back with a bang last week, holding a star-studded opening night premiere, which saw Idris Elba joining superstar rapper Jay-Z on the red carpet. The Wire actor stars in Western The Harder They Fall alongside Jonathan Majors and Regina King, with the movie produced by Jay-Z. The rapper, who has three children with superstar wife Beyoncé, said he was delighted to see black actors playing cowboys on screen. “Just to see us represented, you know – with a lot of films, we didn’t see ourselves in Westerns, as if we didn’t exist. “It is almost odd, people think that it’s like a caricature, that they are playing roles, but they’re not playing roles. There were so many towns that people didn’t know about, so to bring interesting…

‘I never thought I’d hear myself saying this, but it’s an honour to be walked all over in Hollywood’ He has played James Bond for the past 16 years, but last week Daniel Craig bade farewell to his stint as MI6’s super agent in style – by being honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. And appropriately enough, the tribute – the 2,704th celebrity star on the site – is located at 7007 Hollywood Boulevard, next to fellow Bond actor Sir Roger Moore’s star. A week after the opening of his final 007 outing, No Time to Die, Daniel, 53, took to the stage in a dove-grey suit to give a “short and sweet” acceptance speech. Praising his team and Bond producers Michael G Wilson and Barbara Broccoli, who were…

Less than two months after becoming a mum to twins, there was a special delivery of a different sort for Leigh-Anne Pinnock when she received a new car from fiancé Andre Gray (together inset below) on the eve of her 30th birthday last week. Sharing photos (below) of her ride, a khaki Mercedes G-class – which can cost more than £100,000 on the road – sheposted on Instagram: “Always wanted a Green car, boy did good.” The singer (left) also gave a glimpse inside her birthday celebrations, which included dinner at London restaurant The Ivy Asia with family and friends, including her Little Mix bandmates Jade Thirlwall and Perrie Edwards. Describing it as “the most beautiful night”, Leigh-Anne said: “Feeling very blessed and lucky.” Her big day came ahead of the…
