Perpignan 19 Wasps 12: Lewsey injury deepens English gloom in build-up to All Blacks

As Lawrence Dallaglio was quick to point out, results may yet prove otherwise but there is a whiff of decay in English rugby which an impending joust with the All Blacks is hardly likely to dispel.

What you'll really be buying this for is the gorgeous Rouge Miroir packaging (it was designed by sculptor Pablo Reinoso) and the handy mirror on the lid. You'll want to show this lippy off so keep it in your bag and reapply regularly, as obviously as possible.

Fashion: Haute house atmosphere

Models stride down the catwalk in pounds 10,000 creations so outlandish that no one could ever wear them (and so heavy they can hardly be lifted). But, as the photographs of Gerard Uferas reveal, the haute couture collections are also a twice-yearly celebration of exquisite craftsmanship and sublime design. By Susannah Frankel
