Fashion: Victoria reigns at Harvey Nicks

Spice up your life with the latest arrival in town –Victoria by Victoria Beckham is the second, slightly more affordable line from the fashion designer and erstwhile glamourpuss, and it hits Harvey Nichols tomorrow. Not only will you find it taking over the store’s Sloane Street windows in their entirety, but an installation inside the shop will house the collection of youthful, relaxed dresses that come in bright and vibrant shades.

Face to watch: Rashida Jones

She's the daughter of Quincy, a Harvard grad, and a fab comic actress. And now she's both starring in The Muppets movie and enjoying Sundance buzz as co-writer of romcom Celeste and Jesse Forever. In the words of Fozzie Bear, Wocka Wocka!
