In This Week's Issue: Victoria Beckham's Secret Fashion Week Photos PLUS Karl Lagerfeld And His Kitty, Choupette

Ready, steady, this one's heavy! Its our biggest ever collector's issue...

Posing with paper bags, manhandling mannequins, running amok on a moped...and burning the midnight oil backstage. It all went on last week as Victoria Beckham showed her collections in New York. She pens a personal fashion photo diary, exclusively for us!

You might still be getting your head round autumn's new looks, but in Fashion Land, time waits for no-one. From graphic stripes to taxicab yellow and new grunge, last week's New York collections unveiled the trends we'll be wearing next spring.

She's the world's coolest kitty, doted on by her owner - Chanel's Karl Lagerfeld. Choupette is a cat with nine lives, two maids, one personal jet and a penchant for pâté...a feline fashion muse with over 17,000 followers on Twitter, who has inspired whole catwalk collections. Karl Lagerfeld opens up his personal iPhone archives and she talks us through her day.

PLUS what happens when you land the perfect job, buy your dream house and live your ideal lifestyle? You lose your 'friends', says Jenny Paul. We delve into the world of Competitive Success Syndrome.

AND the women who changed the way we dress, costume drama and how to be in fashion now.

Finally, to raise money for Great Ormond Street Hospital, why not enter our goodie bag competition for the chance to win the gorgeous Chloe Alice bag, worth £1,195, courtesy of our friends at Net-A-Porter.

Helen Islan (Wed Sep 19 20:17:25 BST 2012): Thanks for the "Big Advertising Issue" of the magazine this week. Of the 306 page publication, you managed to cram a whopping 148 pages of adverts (which I promptly ripped out of the magazine in order to have any chance of reading the articles - the reason I actually buy the magazine - without getting muscle fatigue in my arms due to the sheer weight of the paper! I appreciate that advertising revenue is required to keep the magazine commercially viable, but surely this should not be at the expense of the (subscription paying) reader? Maybe next time you sell an edition in as being the 'Big Fashion Issue' it should be more Alexander McQueen, and less Advertising machine?
Janet Reeve (Mon Sep 24 14:29:01 BST 2012): I love the cover look - but where is the dress from? And the shoes look fab, but no info inside magazine about them?
