What a week! From sweating in the kitchen over the Great British Bake-Off final to Miranda Kerr and Orlando Bloom’s shock split, it’s certainly had its fair share of ups and downs. Set to rock the A-list world is Vanity Fair’s ‘warts and all’ profile of Gwyneth Paltrow. Rumours have been swirling around all week that the article is threatening to rock the foundations of Gwyneth’s squeaky clean good-girl image. We don’t know exactly what it's set to contain, but Gwyn, we’re sure we can forgive you…
Also in this week’s Grazia you can find our exclusive interview and photo shoot with the darling of GBBO – who else but Ruby Tandoh. She spent some time with us in the kitchen cooking up a delicious Honey Quince Cake. Ever the perfectionist, she gives an insight into her culinary world, the Twitter abuse and her new feminist stance as seen in her recent article for the Guardian.
We’ve also been drooling over River Island’s latest collection. With pieces from Rihanna, luxe fabrics and chunky knitwear providing staples for our Autumn/Winter wardrobe, the 25% discount couldn’t have come at a better time.
The last week also saw the christening of Prince George, which was actually quite a low-key affair, with the service only being attended by close friends and family. Nearly half of the invitees turned out to be George’s godparents – the young prince had no less than seven. George proved he was a fashion icon in the making, wearing a replica of Queen Victoria’s daughter’s gown – cute!
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West finally got engaged – following Kanye’s extravagant proposal at a baseball stadium. While Kim is hinting at a smaller wedding Kanye may prove to coin the phrase Groomzilla as he looks set to pull out all the stops for what one source has called ‘the greatest show on earth’ – we can’t wait!
We also check-in with ex party girl Peaches Geldof who has transformed herself into doting mother of two at the young age of 24.
On top of that we’ve got the pick of the instant wardrobe updates like micro bags and checked sweats, and the top high-street hits landing in stores this week. Feast your eyes on the beauty charts, new autumn beauty buys to give you an autumn makeover and get you ready for those blustery months ahead.
