Glamour is...

The legendary Alexandra Shulman opens this month's Vogue with a list of what she thinks constitutes glamour. Of course, being Alexandra Shulman it includes such things as Herm├ęs stationary and the Cipriani, but it has inspired me to put down a little of my own, possibly foolish, interpretation of the eponymous term.

Mario Testino photography

The man is a sheer frikkin' genius when it comes to capturing fashion. No way round it. He manages to make celebrities look like themselves, whether that is a good or bad thing. The ideal world wedding photographer.

The sea in winter.

What is it about raging swells that makes you feel like you are in a period drama? It incites heaving bosoms and dreams of tearful longing that only the most melodramatic of us usually allow ourselves to indulge in.

Brigitte Bardot

Yep, she was sexy, and yep, that can be elegant. Legend of womanhood in tight jeans.

Stella McCartney
Do I even have to count the ways? One of the best designers of our time, super-cool, environmentally conscious, makes amazing shoes and used to design for Chloe and now has her own label... oh and she's only the daughter of a Beatle.

Le Citron Vodka

Because it tastes amazing, and looks a hell of a lot better than an archers and lemonade.
Eternal cool
How do some people manage to always be one step ahead? They are glamourous in their very vitality. Daisy Lowe = supreme example, and is younger than me, damn her.
