FOUR CITIES, hundreds of shows and a lot of rain… the team and I have just returned from a month on the road covering the biannual catwalk shows. While concern over coronavirus hung over the event, the message from the catwalk seemed to be: keep calm and carry on. So what will you be wanting to wear this autumn? Fringing, fuchsia and anything ’80s will be on your new season wish-list. And the good news is that there’s plenty you’ll be able to pull out of your current wardrobe, too. Plus, our beauty team were backstage capturing tips from make-up artists about cult buys and techniques you don’t have to wait until winter to adopt. Enjoy! MAIN COVER PHOTO: PA.

I’ve recently turned 30, and the change in some of my friends has shocked me. They seem determined to marry in spite of not being in love with anyone at all, even though they live wonderful independent lives. Surely marriage should be a potential consequence of meeting someone who inspires you to want to be with them forever, not a compulsory life goal to be ‘achieved’ and overshared smugly on Instagram. Amy FRIENDS FOREVER Emma Jane Unsworth’s column Don’t split friends into ‘mum’ and ‘non-mum’ camps (2 Mar) reminded me of when my oldest friend came to visit…

letter of the week

SHOULDN’T PUT A RING ON IT I enjoyed Polly Vernon’s column, Oh my God you guyz, guess what? I’m not engaged! (9 Mar), in which she tackled 29 February (when women are ‘allowed’ to propose to men), Love Is Blind and other feminist issues. It certainly put a smile on my face. I’m happily unengaged to a man I’ve been dating for seven years. And I feel that’s OK. Every relationship is different. You might feel envious of friends who are showing off diamond rings or planning weddings, but instead of comparing your relationship to social media posts and feeling like a green-eyed monster, remember you can be as happy as they are without ‘that’ ring.…

Avoid coronavirus – but not all forms of human contact “As we enter another week of being told to keep our distance from each other, let’s not forget the other epidemic sweeping the country – loneliness. A study by the Co-op and Red Cross found nine million people (of all ages) in the UK are either always or often lonely. Then, last week, a report by think tank Onward found one in four people don’t trust their neighbours and seven in 10 think that a sense of community has declined. But we should be looking out for each other now more than ever, not growing more wary. As we recoil from strangers and cancel plans with friends, don’t forget to check in on the people who might become even more isolated.”…

the importance of sleeping around outside your social media bubble

HAVE YOU EVER kissed a Tory? What was it like? Do you feel just terrible about it, now? Bet you do! Are you a Tory, who’s kissed someone who wasn’t one; if so, did you conceal your true political identity until afterwards – you know, just in case? Does concealing Tory leanings from a potential kissee count as some sort of #MeToo-ish violation, a kiss under false political pretences? I ask, because Carrie Symonds is getting it in the neck for being pregnant by her partner, the Tory-est of Tories – the arch Tory? The high-Tory? – Boris Johnson, which suggests she’s done rather more than kiss that particular Tory, so people are furious, because: how dare she bestow favours on a man with whom they do not agree, politically? How could…

1. Up GAGA Looking/sounding a lot like old Gaga, in her new video for Stupid Love. We realise that we’ve missed this Gaga! 2. Up LEÏLA BEKHTI Starring in Damien Chazelle’s new Netflix project The Eddy. We loved her in Midnight Sun. Genuinely excited about this situation. 3. Up SETH ROGAN Looking sharp despite – or perhaps, because of? – the beard, in a suit, trainers and crew-neck tee, at a Thing last week. Early middle age becomes him. 4. Non-mover LENNY KRAVITZ Sockless in Paris, in such a way as to make us wonder why we ever bothered with the tubular foot-encompassing scraps of woollen nonsense anyway. 5. New in BAD PET PORTRAITS A Baltimore pet shelter launches a fundraising scheme in which employees draw terrible pictures of people’s pets for $$$, and it’s working! 6. Up KOURTNEY AND KIM In head-to-toe latex for Kanye’s Sunday…
