I don't care about normcore, metrosexuality, spornosexuality, or even lumbersexuality (yes, now even the bearded, flannel shirt-clad hipster that has his own label). The last label to be put past me was 'dad-core' (suppose that's just normcore taken to a whole new level, right?).

Sarah Potter

It's essentially an odd word of mouth scenario. If your friend were to tell you of a really great skincare product, you'd be more than likely to look into it than if a complete stranger walked up to you and told you. That's what we get with celebrities and models.

I know 1-2 per cent of the population in the UK is meant to be redheaded, but it feels like less than that in London. In any gathering of people - in a crowded shop, on a train station concourse - when I stop and look around, there is very rarely anyone else with such a noticeable hair colour.

"I'm often asked about the Parisienne. What does she look like? How does she dress? [...] Then I bump into Ines de la Fressange and it's all there: the silhouette as slim as the stroke of René Gruau's pen, the sober style that exudes innate elegance, the deep brown gold-flecked eyes."
