acclaimed costume designer julian day on dressing lily james and capturing the spirit of ‘rebecca’

Set in one of our most stylish eras and starring Lily James, the new film adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s compelling 1938 novel Rebecca has been hotly anticipated. It’s not only Lily’s powerful performance in the leading role that delivers, but also the timelessly elegant costumes that add to the romance and drama. “It’s an iconic story, a psychological thriller and so evocative,” says the film’s costume designer Julian Day, a Bafta Awards nominee who has been acclaimed for his work on the biopics Bohemian Rhapsody and Rocketman. A bonus was having a perfect leading lady to dress, he adds. “Lily is amazing. She’s like a chameleon. I’ve never seen anyone put on clothes and inhabit them so well and really show them off to their best.” Made by Netflix and directed by Ben…

photographed by daughter billie at home in cornwall dawn french on family ties, surviving life’s challenges and putting her heart into her new book

There’s a certain intimacy to these photographs of Dawn French. Whether it’s a knowing smile to the camera, throwing her head back in laughter or striking a silly pose, the comedy actress looks natural and uninhibited. The reason, she explains, is because her daughter Billie took the pictures, which they have chosen to share exclusively with HELLO! . “I think these photos are special because there’s a relationship in them,” says Dawn of the portraits, taken at her home in Fowey, Cornwall during lockdown. “I love my daughter more than I love anyone in the world, so when somebody like that is taking your photo it’s an extraordinary experience.” A skilled photographer, Billie, 29, takes pictures of her family all the time, says Dawn, 63, who decided to use some to coincide with…

from supermodel to france’s first lady of music carla bruni talks of life, love and lockdown – and her fondness for the royal family

Carla Bruni’s music studio in the heart of Paris is a cheerful reminder of a remarkable life – and a career that began more than three decades ago. Covering every square inch of its walls are hundreds of photographs of her as a supermodel. Two guitars hang from the wall behind her, testament to her new life as a successful songwriter and singer. As we talk on Zoom, France’s former First Lady – wearing a chic blue cashmere roll-neck jumper and with her hair loose – pans her laptop’s camera around to offer us a 360-degree look around. Many of the photographs are Polaroids or other candid shots of Carla and her friends and family over the years. But what is abundantly clear is how much they mean to her. Her face flashes…

on a rainy trip to south london the duchess of cornwall falls for some animal magic as she visits crucial community projects

Brightening up a drizzly autumn day, the Duchess of Cornwall visited South London last week to find out how horse power is helping the capital’s children in need. “A little rain never hurt anybody,” she said, smiling from beneath her transparent Fulton umbrella at the Ebony Horse Club in Brixton. “And who could refuse these gorgeous horses?” Camilla, 73, is president of the inner-city club, which has helped hundreds of children during the coronavirus pandemic via its breakfast and after-school clubs – and also provided essential provisions such as bread and beans to 80 local children a week. Claudia Buchanan, a volunteer at the site, told her: “This club is not just such a central part of this community, but there are young people who come from all over London to visit. “Some children…

with a spring in her step and a smile on her face the queen teams up with prince william as she leaves windsor castle for a ‘very proud day’ out

She has been surrounded by a protective bubble of staff since March, but last week the Queen finally left lockdown to carry out her first engagement beyond palace walls in seven months. Joined by her grandson the Duke of Cambridge, Her Majesty looked delighted to be back out on duty, as they visited the UK’s national security laboratory at Porton Down, near Salisbury. Officials left nothing to chance, with the 94-year-old monarch arriving by helicopter from Windsor Castle while Prince William arrived separately by car. Scientists at the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (DSTL) have pioneered some of the Covid-19 diagnostic testing and all 48 of the people the royal party came into close contact with at the site had tested negative before the visit, meaning no masks were worn. The Queen was clearly…
