UNBELIEVABLY, IT’S ALMOST six months since phrases like ‘waist-up dressing’ hit the vernacular and hashtags #wfhfits swept social media. And now, suddenly, we find ourselves in a summer defined by face masks of every variety. So how has coronavirus altered our sense of style – and what long-lasting impact will the pandemic have on the way we dress? Polly Vernon wades into that very debate on page 26. The short answer? Zoom jewellery is sticking around. Enjoy the issue and the rest of the summer, wherever you’re spending it.…

It had everything to brighten up my lockdown state: witty words, fantastic fashion and an invigorating insight into the life of a top designer. It heartens me to have fun through fashion, beauty and my favourite magazines, without letting go of the fundamentals. Of course Black lives matter, of course we need to address climate change, and the pandemic is here to stay, for now at least. But we can still live and love, create and work and – most of all – dream. Your namesake, Maria…

gold-standard dina

Taking my first train ride since lockdown, I craved some reading. With Dina Asher-Smith on the cover (10 Aug), making my selection between all the magazines was easy. She is an inspiration: hard-working, humble, smart, career-driven and seemingly a good-natured person, too. I’d much rather read about the life of a gold-medal-winning athlete than a reality star, so I hope to see more cover stars like her. Interview questions from ex-Olympian Tessa Sanderson was a stellar choice to show how conditions for athletes in Britain have improved. I wish her luck in staying focused and smashing the Olympics next year!…

“When Michelle Obama spoke recently about the ‘low-grade depression’ she has been suffering, it was a powerful reminder that mental health issues don’t discriminate – even one of the most successful, influential and admired women in the world can be affected. Michelle cited coronavirus, racism in the US and the Trump administration as the causes of her ‘heaviness’. Her words spoke to us all – who among us hasn’t struggled with the grind of lockdown, grief for those who’ve died, fear of the virus or unemployment and disillusionment that there are still so many stories of Black oppression (and not just in the US). It’s another reminder that we should be kind to ourselves and check in on each other.”…

my eyebrows: ground zero on mounting political unrest

I WAS SUPPOSED to be getting my brows done today. After five untended months; after my forehead fully grew itself a pair of little hair shelves (/privet hedges)… My brows were to be tamed! Along with my ’tache, which I don’t talk about much because embarrassing, so, hoorah, huzzah, hu… Ah. The Government just changed its mind on relaxing the ban on facial treatments in beauty salons, and now: my brows do grow on. Boris has promised he’ll rethink my brow* situation over forthcoming weeks – it might have even happened by the time you read this – which is terribly good of him, except huge damage has already been done. I don’t just mean to the once-gracious sweep of my eyebrows. I mean: to the beauty industry. While all around…
