所以当看到昨天《卫报》上 Hadley Freeman 的这句话时,我禁不住笑了:

But you know what, Mr Romilly? Life is hard. Sometimes, one can even compare it to a female dog.

Split that is end of an era – and tragedy for Pilates

Madonna has elevated many unlikely items into cultural signifiers: conical bras, yoga teachers and Kabbalah centres, to take a brief and Proustian tour through the singer’s career. But few would have predicted that British director Guy Ritchie would join that eclectic roll call. This coupling was, for a moment, as exciting as it was unexpected. A cult(ish) British director and an American superstar? To a country so fond of self-deprecation, and for so long in the grumbling, intimidated shadow of its bigger and brasher transatlantic neighbour, it was as though the hometown boy had pulled the prom queen.

On a recent documentary Kate Moss seemed to design her collection for Topshop by just getting things out of her wardrobe or finding vintage pieces and telling Topshop to copy them. Is this how designers work these days?

Sarah Morris, London

Oh, you picky, picky public people! What do you want from the poor, hard-working, straining-by-the-grit-o’-their-teeth fashion designers? Donatella, Karl Lagerfeld, Miuccia Prada – honestly, most of the time, they look as if they work down mines.

Whenever I put on my golfing outfit (striped shirt, smart trousers) my girlfriend laughs at me. How can I make her stop?
Bruce Lane, Cornwall

Whether it’s an indictment on this page or the nature of fashion in general, it is remarkable how many of the questions that arrive by winged courier to this hallowed desk of academia contain their own answer within. To whit, last week L Grant wanted to know why it was so hard to find smart long-sleeved dresses for the over-30s (because you’re over 30. Duh! Designers don’t care about you.

Daily Quote: shag the camera

Published by under Daily Quote

Guardian’s Hadley Freeman answers the question “Why do fashion models look so grumpy” from a male reader. (I must confess I have the same question but not sure whom to ask.)
