Karen Millen snaps up David Bailey

Karen Millen has become the latest fashion retailer to sign up a celebrity photographer to promote its autumn and winter collection.

David Bailey: The photographer has taken inspiration from nature. 'It's the happiest flower I could think of,' he says of the striking picture he has donated to the exhibition. The image is one of Bailey's own photographs, which he shot in 2008. Every year, he captures the same flowers in April and May

Charting emotion: What makes me happy

Researchers have tried to quantify how happy people are by charting the emotion on an index. From Tuesday, it is the turn of the arts to explain happiness, with a new exhibition aiming to express the emotion through objects.

Delicious genius: Duffy exhibition

"I don't give a f*** what anybody thinks about me...I never wanted to be famous. Why? For what? So the doorman at Harrods can recognise me? What I care about is what my kids think about me, and what my grandchildren think of me - the fact that they think I'm a genius is delicious." - Brian Duffy

Harriet Walker: 'Can I really be as ugly as that?''

Many people start to fear "bikini season" at this time of year. I don't – but only as I refuse to wear a bikini in public. No, my fear as the weather gets better is of "photo season". Come summer, everyone gets their legs out and with them, their cameras.

Dylan Jones: 'Langan’s was once the centre of a certain part of London society'

Langan's is the sleeping giant of the London restaurant world, a place that was once the centre of a certain part of London society, but which has seemed content to sit in the shadows for the past decade or so. It is still run by the charming Richard Shepherd, and for years there have been rumours that he is "just about to sell", but nothing ever comes to pass. It is still popular, but I think even Richard would admit it's not the force it once was – when David Bailey used it as a place to have Ritz editorial meetings, and where Peter Langan used to fall asleep under people's chairs.

Glowing panes: Brian Clarke's stained-glass windows have earned him global recognition and the papal thumbs-up

Brian Clarke – who has been called the rock star of stained glass – has just had his stained-glass window in the Papal Chapel of the Apostolic Nunciature in Wimbledon blessed by the Pope on his visit. It's not everyday that Pope Benedict XVI gives an artist's work the thumbs up. But after the Pope said Mass at the chapel at the Vatican's embassy in London in front of the glowing stained-glass window and blessed it, Clarke was presented to him in an adjoining room. "I chatted to him about the window and the Pope told me that he 'greatly liked it'," says Clarke.

My Secret Life: David Bailey, photographer, 72

My parents were ... regular working-class people. My father was a tailor, my mother a machinist. My mother was tough like a gypsy – in fact, she used to scare the gypsies. I seldom saw my father – he was too busy scallywagging around.

Dylan Jones: 'One of the sexiest things I’ve seen is David Bailey’s short film of his wife Catherine eating an egg'

SHOWstudio.com is 10 years old this year, a decade in which the photographer Nick Knight's website has showcased a wild assortment of interviews, blogs, videos, photographs and all manner of fashion-related tricky-dickery. It was one of the first sites to broadcast live from catwalk shows and fashion shoots, and offer access to the previously closed world of high fashion. It was original, sometimes clever, and people liked it. Which is why it's hung around.

All her material possessions: Sally Ann Lasson gets a tour of supermodel Marie Helvin's wardrobe

Marie Helvin says she has been on a diet all her life but judging from a close look at her, it's surely been worth it. Still fabulous at 57, Helvin is in the process of decluttering her life, and to that end is auctioning off many of her clothes and dresses, including the Yves Saint Laurent Rive Gauche wedding outfit from her 1975 marriage to David Bailey. A photograph included in the lot shows the couple with their witnesses: Tina and Michael Chow, Michael Roberts and Cathy Damon, another supermodel of the day. A little piece of fashion history with an estimated value of £300 -500.
