Going up

Smizing while sashaying We’re not sure rumours of an ANTM and Drag Race mash-up are true, but we’re practising this party trick in case.

Peanuts x Essentiel Antwerp Kind of irresistible. The pleated skirt is a grown-up take on cartoons.

Penélope Cruz Her turn as Donatella is revealed this week with the Gianni Versace: American Crime Story debut in the US; UK viewers can see it on the BBC later this year.

Miniature bouquets Power flowers in 2018 is a posy in a water glass. Buy your bijou bunch at the Aoyama flower market when it pops up from Tokyo at Selfridges this spring.

Cats Don’t be put off by the cat person story. Cats don’t signify intimacy issues and poor texting skills. K?

Rixo The brand you’ll want in 2018. Grab the Chrissy midi dress for £315 at Net-a-porter next week.

Going down

Woman with pink hair flying in the air

Pink hair The shabby red dip-dye shade à la Ladybird is just too much millennial pink.

The self-important OOO “I am away from my desk purchasing a hot beverage, in emergency contact...” Chill babes, the Earth doesn’t fall off its axis every time you go to Pret.

Subtlety We’ve changed our mind. See Zendaya in gold on the day of the Golden Globes nominations.

Cindy Crawford’s hair Sorry, but Kaia’s in the Versace campaign outdoes the 1980s.

After-work exercise Make that lunch hour workout instead.

Demi Lovato’s denim suspenders We love red carpet experimentation, but fear this is a step too far.
