This Week's Grazia: Billion Dollar Kate Middleton!

After the Golden Globes excitement yesterday, it's time to put your feet up and check out what else is going on in fash-land thanks to our brand new issue. Check out what we've got in store this week...

It's Ker-ching Kate! Following last week's reports that UK women are spending an average of £250 each to look like the Duchess of Cambridge, it's now emerged the 'Kate effect' has brought an astonishing £1billion into the ailing British economy. So what next for the girl who never set out to be a fashion icon?

She may be a film directing singing superstar, but Madonna still dreams of meeting Prince Charming. Grazia talks to her about the love story that inspired her directorial debut, 'W.E.'

Plus, here's a January treat for you... Karl's going kut-price! Launching on 25 January on Net-A-Porter is his much-anticipated 'Karl' collection with prices starting at just £50. Oh, Mr Lagerfeld, how very generous.

In this week's news report, we ask is Britain just as racist as it was 19 years ago? Writer Bim Adewunmi - who inadvertently started the Diana Abbott Twitter storm last week - argues yes. Do you agree?

We bring you the third part of our Clean & Lean series. A-list trainer James Duigan reveals how to get the body you want with five minutes exercise a day, leaving you time to detox other areas of your life...

And blow away your winter blues with the beautiful Rabeanco Toosy L Bag, worth £279, which we're giving away!

John Coronado (Fri Apr 20 19:37:27 BST 2012): Hello, i don't know where else to post this comment as I cant find the article online that was in this edition of grazia. But I would like to comment on the article Britain is no longer racist(you must be joking). I experience casual racism on occasion in my line of work, things like"my neighbour" and then quietly she said to me "shes black" or "i hate them people coming here taking our jobs" etc and it annoys me and I often correct them with "ok is the colour of her skin relevant to this conversation " I have argued endlessly with friends about how there are bad people in all walks of life etc and its frustrating that their prejudice is still there even though they have hardly ever had any experience with other races. But I lived in Bermuda and I have experienced racism first hand against myself also, this isn't exclusive to Black or Asians I found black people often racist to me, serving black people first in stores, being told to f... off back home and stop taking our jobs, during the strikes in Bermuda I was often pushed and goaded for just going to work. On front street after midnight was a no go for white people as they would probably get attacked or robbed, if you was unlucky to be in a bar after midnight the doors would be locked and you would have to wait hours for a taxi. Its the reason I hate racism to this day, however some of the article sounded a little paranoid, I am hairdresser and my girlfriend has amazing curly hair, people comment and touch her hair all them time(is this racist?) And being asked if they can call you B because they feel uncomfortable saying your name which in fairness could be mistaken for the most wanted(now deceased) terrorist in the world I am not sure this is always to be interpreted as racism either, my names Juan de dios and I get called J or John often , i don't find it offensive. Each generation will become less ignorant t as globalism increases but unfortunately it will take time , changing 10 billion peoples consciousness will take time but I don't think you will see it in your lifetime I'm afraid.
