NOUR FLAYHAN Lebanese illustrator and ingénue Nour Flayhan has created this month’s Bystander cover, an illustration of the Duchess of Windsor. Her bright, bold work featuring beautiful, empowered women can be seen in campaigns for Gucci, Levi’s and Apple. GEORDIE GREIG Editor of the Daily Mail, Geordie Greig once headed up Tatler (and the Mail on Sunday, and the Evening Standard). He returned to his alma mater for this issue, venturing to the furthest reaches of Zimbabwe on a père-et-fils safari with his son, Jasper, whom he describes as an owl to his lark. Amid charging elephants and a precarious canoe trip in crocinfested waters, they discovered that the wilds of Africa are the ‘perfect place for filial bonding’. JAMES BROWN When he was only 22, James Brown styled Kate Moss’ hair for her debut…

parties

GOING COCO The Rose Room at Annabel’s was budding with well-known faces as Lily-Rose Depp hosted a party to celebrate Chanel’s N 5 bottles turning red for a fleeting moment, with plenty of posing beside the 2.5-metre fragrance. Mother-and-son duos Saffron Aldridge and Milo Astaire, plus Elizabeth Saltzman and Harry Walker, decamped to the garden for a seated dinner with the likes of actors Sai Bennett and Charley Palmer Rothwell. The talk of the night was Arizona Muse, who upon taking her place, suddenly went into labour! Photographed by JAMES D KELLY FLASH GORDON The Bloomsbury set was reimagined when Americans and friends descended on Neptune in Russell Square’s The Principal Hotel for an intimate supper hosted by Lauren Santo Domingo for Carolina Herrera’s new Creative Director, Wes Gordon. His new generation of swans…

a lesson from history

Whenever there is a Royal Wedding, we buy into the archetypal fairy tale. We want to believe in happily-ever-after, but the reality is rarely halcyon. A royal match promises palaces, but delivers gilded cages and gruelling public scrutiny. The couple may marry for love, but history and tradition regularly conspire against them. Monarchy depends on continuity, conformity and the cult of the court. Too much character or colourful behaviour is frowned upon – the spotlight must be trained on the monarch or heir apparent. As Diana, Princess of Wales and Sarah, Duchess of York, found to their cost, individuality is a liability. Popularity is a mixed blessing, unless you consistently play it safe and keep schtum, à la Kate and Camilla. Which makes me anxious for Meghan. When Meghan Markle married…

from harris with love

The moment I discovered fashion came when I was about 10 years old and living in Arizona. I was born in Los Angeles, but we moved around the US and Europe a lot – my father is a documentary filmmaker and my mother is a perfumer and former model. Arizona is a beautiful place, but it’s also very conservative, almost backwards in its way of thinking. Meanwhile, I was this hugely expressive child. I’d come out as gay when I was nine, and I was very secure in my identity. I knew who I was and I was experimenting with the way I wanted to present myself to the world. I had no friends. I was bullied for being gay and for being different. So, I made up all these fictional…

hippie deluxe

Talitha Getty was – and remains – the embodiment of boho chic: wild, tragic, free-spirited and a beauty who inspired Yves Saint Laurent and the layers of flowing fabrics, tassels, braided headbands and cossack hats of the designer’s 1976 Ballet Russes collection. The catwalks were Talitha all over: think tie-dye, fringing, retro prints and a jubilant pop of colour. Prada and Stella McCartney went for acid-washed Woodstock vibes, and even the classics were reincarnated – Polo Ralph Lauren’s preppy cable-knit jumper has gone psychedelic, and Dior’s iconic saddle bag is taking a tie-dye walk on the wild side. Hippies are high again – high fashion, that is. PHOTOGRAPHS: PATRICK LICHFIELD/GETTY IMAGES; GETTY IMAGES…

true classic

Though it never really went away, Spring’s catwalks heralded a kind of renaissance for classic luxury, and the nonchalant, ‘less is more’ approach of Coco Chanel. The shows also saw the comeback of brown – previously a colour to avoid in anything but tortoiseshell sunglasses (which, coincidentally, will work wonderfully this season). But by filling the runway with shades of that once dour hue, Burberry, Dior and Max Mara have us all asking the big question: could brown really be the new black? Also, take note of the three Ts: tan, trenches and tailoring – and the resurgence of classic shapes that give credence to Yves Saint Laurent’s maxim that while ‘fashions fade, style is eternal’. The style icon of the moment is Carolyn Bessette, the Calvin Klein PR who…
