4 keira: ‘the sanest thing i ever did was to run away’

KEIRA KNIGHTLEY attended the low-key London premiere of her new film Misbehaviour last week. In it, she plays a feminist activist fighting to derail the 1970 Miss World pageant and take a stand against misogyny. Chatting to Grazia ahead of the event, she looked resplendent in white Chanel, a million miles from the harassed single mother she plays in the film. Although Keira revealed parenting in 2020 comes with its own challenges, not least social media. ‘I worry about my kids and the pressure that will be put on them,’ she said. ‘As a parent, you’re always saying, “You’re amazing the way you are!” “Look how your body works!” “Look how strong you are!” But it’s not just about the parents. It’s about the culture around those kids.’ Keira, who has two…

The gym kit under £30 that looks high-end ONCE UPON A TIME, gym kit was about throwing on a pair of baggy leggings and a greying vest. Now I want to show off a chic gym look as much as I do this season’s loafer. Some exercisewear, however, is eye-wateringly expensive. Thankfully, the high street is now emulating all the sweat-wicking, seamless, antibacterial technology of designer brands – and you can barely tell them apart. Here’s my spring hit list: 1. The tank The GapFit Breathe Tie-Back Tank Top, £29.95, is gym-vest perfection. It’s loose around the stomach area and ties at the back, so it won’t ride up when you’re in downward dog. 2. The sweatshirt Keep an eye out for Goodmove, Marks & Spencer’s super-stylish new range of fitnesswear. I’ll be wearing this…

3 street style hits under £150

ANOTHER SHOW season is done. The street-style set have scattered home to recharge their batteries (both literal and metaphorical), untuck their trousers from their boots and slip into something a little more comfortable. Such is the power of the scene off the catwalk that, if you want to know what you’ll be wearing next season, you’d be advised to take note now. The key takeaways: boots (still stompy), leather (newly grownup), white dresses (not just for summer) and beige (lots and lots of beige). But isn’t street style just as unrealistic as catwalk trends, at least where budget is concerned? Well, not necessarily. Sure, there were plenty of Bottega Veneta Padded Cassette bags (£2,090) and countless pairs of The Row’s zip-front boots (£1,125) but, this season, high-street brands and entry-level pieces jostled…

welcome to the issue

WHEN WE STARTED planning this week’s high street issue we never could have imagined that the world would be in the grips of a pandemic. But as coronavirus takes hold here in the UK, we now face the prospect of long periods of self-isolation that our counterparts in Italy are already living through. On page 18, Tamu McPherson prepares us for the reality of life in lockdown – and an economy in free-fall. But when we emerge from this period, I hope our high streets will remain; not only because they’re a crucial part of our culture, but because they help connect communities.…

what’s up in westminster?

‘We need to battle presenteeism’ Following on from International Women’s Day, Employment Minister Mims Davies talks about why it is so important that more women are in work The new employment figures released last month showed record highs for women in work: 15 million are now working, which means hundreds of thousands who perhaps haven’t had a chance to before, or were previously tied up with childcare. An additional 298,000 women started working last year, which is down to a combination of employers being smarter now, women seeing more role models in the workplace and help with things like childcare costs from the Government and shared parental leave. ‘I know money can be tight and times change’ Now, we’re encouraging employers to battle presenteeism – where we feel we need to show face at…
