Miss Selfridge launched its mid-season sale this week, with up to50 per cent off selected items until Tuesday 19 October. Visit http://ind.pn/dqiDiE for the full list of savings, with the "hot picks" section (a glorified list of the biggest discounts) well worth a look. When making your order, don't forget that Miss Selfridge offers free delivery on all orders over £80. You don't need a voucher code to take advantage but I thought I'd mention it as delivery charges may alter the way you shop.

Visual Arts: I saw a really great show of Wolfgang Tillmans at the Serpentine Gallery. I saw Wolfgang's first show at Maureen Paley back in 1993. It really wasn't like anything I had seen before; casual images pinned to the wall, with tenuous links between them. Wolfgang has continued being experimental without losing that lightness of touch, and always keeping that sense of humanity.

If anyone still gave a tinker's cuss whether Gavin Henson might be seen in a Wales shirt again, they were given their answer yesterday when the poor lost soul of the Red Dragon game reappeared, as if by magic, as the poster-boy of a marketing campaign to promote a new, heavily-sponsored kit deal. The question that stayed unanswered was whether the Grand Slam-winning midfielder would actually play again. On this subject, his thoughts remained almost as impenetrable as his fake tan.

It looks like the next stage of the New Labour project is for the leaders to become proper celebrities. Mandelson's doing well so far, with his advert for The Times being impressively putrid, in which he publicises the serialisation of his book by sitting in a camp Gothic pose purring "I am the Prince of Darkness". But it fails in one respect, that the reason he's called the Prince of Darkness isn't because he played Dracula in a film or always wore a cloak, it's because he really is the Prince of bloody Darkness. It's like the difference between one of the Chuckle Brothers doing an advert where he says: "I'm a nutcase I am", and one in which a similar line was said by Raoul Moat.
