trending... summers ’ a scare

Your day-to-day worries will seem much less scary after this month’s watch list. On the big screen, Get Out’s creator Jordan Peele and Top Boy director Nia DaCosta bring us Candyman (out 27 August), the unsettling fright-fest sequel to the 1990s cult classic. Aquaman star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II plays artist Anthony who loses his grip on reality after uncovering the legend of Candyman. You might do the same. Also in film, Censor (out 20 August) is the bloody love letter to 1980s ‘video nasty’ horror classics. Raised by Wolves’ Niamh Algar plays depressed film censor Erin who is shocked to discover a horror movie that recreates a traumatic incident from her childhood. Finally, as part of its ‘Summer of Fear’, Netflix releases the Fear Street trilogy (out July) – starring Stranger…

dinner party wars

JESSA WAS SO EXCITED ABOUT HER GARDEN PARTY, she took the day off work to prepare. She’d spent £350 on a Habitat beach bar gazebo and stocked it with spirits and mixers for cocktails. She’d laid picnic rugs and cushions on the artificial turf, hoping for a ‘chilled Moroccan soirée vibe’. Fairy lights bedecked the garden fence and she had lanterns hanging from trees. On the menu for her five best friends, all in their early 30s, was an elaborate meze followed by an Ottolenghi tagine. She’d had to scour local supermarkets for rose harissa and each of the small dishes had taken hours to make. This was the friends’ first reunion since last summer when, for a blissful couple of months between lockdowns, Brighton was open and buzzing and they’d…

my fashionable life helena christensen

MY LOVE OF COLOUR COMES FROM MY PERUVIAN SIDE. As a girl I travelled to Peru a lot – it’s where my mother is from. The vivid colours and fabrics of the Indigenous people in Cusco are forever imprinted in my mind. At 14, I wore a full Peruvian outfit to my first communion; I looked like a giant Easter egg. My hair was permed and I wore frosted pink lipstick with blue mascara. I was a vision. SECONDHAND CLOTHING IS A BIG PART OF MY LIFE. My mother owned a vintage clothes store in Copenhagen, where I grew up. It’s an honour to wear another woman’s history and take it on new adventures. My secondhand jumper collection is out of control, I own at least 100 of them. I find…

future beauty new wave

WE WOULDN’T GO SO FAR AS TO SAY that effortless hair is over. But now we’re going out out again, why not put time aside for some meticulous (dare we say, therapeutic) preening? ‘This look is all about that exciting getting-ready energy,’ says session stylist and industry tastemaker Lauren Bell of her defined, deliberately wiggly rickrack waves. ‘We’ve seen undone, beachy hair hundreds of times; this is about taking time to prep and enjoy the process.’ Category is: Whigfield’s iconic ‘getting ready for a night out’ Saturday Night video, but with pins instead of pigtails. These deliberately kinked, winding waves – with candy-hued hair slides – are the definition of the new cool. ‘It’s a different movement with less frizz, more intention,’ explains Bell. ‘Wrap sections of hair around a kirby…
