welcome to the issue

YOU’VE ALWAYS BEEN good at telling us what you love (and don’t love!) about Grazia, and this week our mailbox has been bulging with readers sharing anxieties and saying what you need from us is escapism. We hear you loud and clear, so this issue is dedicated to finding joy in hunkering down at home. As a result, I can’t think of a better person to front the issue than Laura Jackson, who we shot at home the day before lockdown. She shares her tips on creating a feelgood space on page 36 – just one of the pieces in this week’s issue that I hope bring you respite, inspiration and the motivation to do something that makes you feel good. @hattie_brett / feedback@graziamagazine.co.uk MAIN COVER PHOTO: PHOTOGRAPHER, JON GORRIGAN; STYLIST, RACHEL…

Every fashion magazine should have a healthcare worker on its cover so everyone realises how serious this is and how we need to work together. Jane LEGAL KOUNSEL KIM I was most interested in Kim Kardashian West: ‘Life becomes a little less about you than it used to be’ (6 Apr). I’ve had issues with Kim and her fixation on body size, which she translated into marketing diet pills to her young audience, but I have no issue with her becoming a lawyer. Many are mocking her, but she is taking advantage of an apprenticeship programme that allows a person to take the…

letter of the week

NHS STAFF: WE SALUTE YOU! In the midst of fear and uncertainty, Grazia stands out as a magazine rich in ideas and advice. It is a message of hope but also of plain reality without any fake news. In Terrified. Emotional. Uncertain. Lonely (6 Apr) four frontline heroes related their heartbreaking stories with dignity, sticking to the facts, continuing their battle to save lives. My mood was brightened by your feature on the new home dress code, the cultural catch-up and how to decorate my new home office. Thank you for a brilliant read.…

We must test and protect frontline workers “Another day, another picture of nurses wearing bin bags because they don’t have personal protective equipment (PPE) to shield them from coronavirus. According to the chair of The Doctors’ Association, some have been told to go to B&Q to source their own masks. Without PPE they are exposed to the disease while they save lives. Many haven’t been tested, either – yet we know testing will allow back to work some staff who are self-isolating with symptoms. The Government has promised more testing and say they’re working to make sure frontline staff have ‘the protection they deserve’. Their lives must be our priority – they’re the ones saving us all.”…

the life-changing magic of tidying cheering up

FUNNY WHAT starts mattering, when it never mattered before. I had little time for the concept of ‘being cheered up’ three short weeks ago. Had I thought about cheer at all, I’d have told you its pursuit was lame. Cheer felt compensatory, a Victorian-tinged excuse for all the really fun and distracting 21st-century shizzzz: thrills and drama, adrenaline and stuff! But now? However many days it is into lockdown, and however many rinse-and-repeat brain-cycles on all the varieties of dread newly available to mankind? Now: I think cheer is the most precious commodity available. Cheer actually lifts you up, eh? Finger-flicks you with joy, body-slams you with your own half-forgotten capacity to be silly – or just not so deathly serious all the time. Mate, I am snuffling cheer out like pigs…

chart of lust

1. New in DR JENNY HARRIES Deputy chief medical advisor, stepping in on the Gov briefings for Chris Whitty, whom we have also honoured with this slot. For these are our icons of lust now! 2. New in MAE MARTIN Canadian comedian whose beautiful little gay romcom (Feel Good, Channel 4) offers some corona-free delights for anyone interested. 3. Up THE BACKSTREET BOYS Some celebrities struggle to know how to interact with us at a time when their very existence seems spoilt and pointless. Some nail it with a quarantine revisiting of their greatest hit. 4. Up ‘DISHY’ RISHI SUNAK Chancellor, also giving good daily briefing (as with Dr Jenny Harries). You may not agree with his politics, but it’s hard not to notice his relative easeupon-the-eye-ness. 5. New in TIFFANY BOONE Starring in Hunters on Amazon Prime. Making us want to revisit the…
