Between now and the 'Sex and the City' sequel's release, we will no doubt be treated to never ending behind-the-scenes shots of the bag- and shoe-toting stars on set. So far so predictable, but last week a more entertaining photo appeared of SJP sporting a perm that would make a poodle look sleek. Reportedly for an Eighties flashback scene, it served as a handy reminder that although the decade that the natural look forgot is back, there is good Eighties and there is bad Eighties. Very bad.

Betty Scharf died peacefully at her home on 25 April, aged 92. She was born on 1 January 1917 as Betty Hinchliff, her all-round abilities revealing themselves early on as she obtained a scholarship to Henrietta Barnett School and shone academically and at sports. A student at LSE in the years leading up to the Second World War, she was already an internationalist, prominent in the League of Nations Society and the Students' Union, leading a delegation to Czechoslovakia in 1937 and taking an active interest in Spain. Her first class B.Econ degree attracted the attention of the psychoanalyst John Bowlby, and she joined him in research for "44 Juvenile Thieves". During the war she lectured in Sociology under Professor Morris Ginsberg at LSE. In 1944 she married Rafael Scharf, a Polish Jew working as a War Crimes Investigator. The marriage lasted until his death in 2003.
