GO FOR GLAMOUR

PParty season is officially upon us, which means the next five weeks until Christmas (yes, it really is that soon) are brimming with exciting events to get you in the festive mood. Be it an elegant soirée with friends or the annual office party, it’s the time of year that truly requires dressing to impress – which is why we’ve made this week our most glamorous yet on Style & Living. Enter British actress and star of Downton Abbey Michelle Dockery, as she lights up the stage at London jazz venue Ronnie Scott’s for our In the Moment feature. Showcasing some of the season’s most fabulous party pieces, she talks about her love of music and how her iconic role as Lady Mary has influenced her sense of style. Fashion journalist Harriet Quick, contributor to Vogue and the Financial Times, has also offered up her expertise, picking out a shimmering Limited Edition shift dress as a winning choice for all wardrobes, while Rebecca Cox of Glamour.com reveals her perfect underwear solutions to make sure you really feel your best. And for the gents, don’t miss this week’s suave velvet jacket in rich navy, which guarantees to tick all the festive boxes.

In recent months, our obsession with the lives and wardrobes of ‘Sloane Rangers’ has reached new heights. Made in Chelsea, Life is Toff, Liberty of London and now Posh People: Inside Tatler – the list of addictive viewing goes on. But it’s the Chelsea-based 20-somethings, with their ‘anti-polished’ sense of style and fearless attitude to fashion (see Alice Dellal, pictured), who have really piqued our interest. Our round-up of Vogue’s latest news has everything you need to know about Sloane style, hot off the King’s Road.
