It’s Grazia Tuesday! Don't be too sad that it's the last day of London Fashion Week as our Big Fashion Issue has hit the newsstands. Our 260-page collector's issue is packed with 500+ new season looks, ideas and buys. Plus we spend the day in Milan with Donatella Versace and her Versace muse - her dog Audrey. Pick up the oh-so pretty Big Fashion Issue to find out Rihanna's inspiration behind her River Island collection, meet the Russianistas and see H&M's new sister store & Other Stories exclusively in Grazia.
‘You have to understand, ’ says Donatella Versace, ‘that Audrey is not a dog.’ In this week’s issue we spend a day with Donatella Versace and her best friend, her boss, the brunette to her blonde on the streets of Milan – her dog Audrey. Audrey is no ordinary dog, when we meet her she is sporting a Versace neon collar made especially for her. See inside our day with Audrey and Donatella in this week’s issue.
Grazia also has an exclusive first look at Rihanna's range for River Island and she reveals her inspiration behind the collection. ‘Britain has the most fashionable kids in the world,’ RiRi said. ‘These kids inspired the high-end designers, they say what’s cool. So why not go to the source when you want to be ahead of the trend and create something inspirational and fresh? That’s why I wanted to work with River Island.‘ We also exclusively reveal H&M's new sister store, & Other Stories. We love the mix of striped bretons, bombers, stacking rings, flippy skirst and hot printed suits.
Also in the Big Fashion Issue we meet the Czarinas, the super-rich Russians who are fuelling a fashion-buying frenzy. Meet Miroslava Duma, Elena Perminova, Vika Gazinskaya and Ulyana Sergeenko – they dominate the front row at fashion week, change outfits five times a day and trail style photographers in their wake.
Want to know how to be in fashion now? We have a 10-step guide with 500+ new season looks, buys and ideas to help you get a heads-up on the trends and style tricks for spring, from ruffles to monochrome stripes to zesty tangerine. We also have three shoots in this week’s Fashion Issue, starting with ‘Sitting Pretty,’ where our model sits on top of a giant cake wearing fondant colours, bows and ribbons.
Then we meet Caroline Grane, 34, who reveals to Grazia why she’s one of a host of women who since the recession hit, won’t start a relationship without getting the facts on his finances.
Hair wise we’ve enlisted hair hero Sam McKight to show us how to fuse together the two biggest hair trends. Pick up this week’s issue to find out what happens when ladylike groomed meets girlish grunge.
