Katie Grand is feeling confident. It's an unusual emotion in these times of market uncertainty. But, nonetheless, it's there: she has just returned from the European fashion weeks and, after a hectic fortnight, has a date of her own to look forward to.

Uh oh – gremlins at work at 'The Guardian'. Hugh Muir's diary last week referred to a certain "Mahatma Ghandi", only for the Corrections and Clarifications column to correct the mistake a few days later (it's Gandhi). All well and good. Except that on the previous page of that day's paper, Dame Polly Toynbee, of all people, was calling him "Ghandi" again. This led to another correction the following day, but curiously on this occasion the precise whereabouts of the mis-spelling was left rather vague, as "elsewhere in the paper". Poor Hugh – why didn't they spare his blushes too?

An icon whose look and style defined the fashion world of the 1940s, Dorian Leigh is widely regarded as having been the first "supermodel". In 1946 she appeared on seven Vogue covers, and over the next six years was on more than 50 covers of such magazines as Life, Look and McCall's. In the early 1950s, she featured in a series of famous images for Revlon's "Fire and Ice" campaign promoting nail-polish and lipstick ("For you who love to flirt with fire; who dare to skate on thin ice"), ravishingly shot in a jewelled dress and red cape by Richard Avedon.

You have to hand it to Alexander McQueen: the designer has cojones. On the eve of the opening of his flagship store on Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles – and just when his contemporaries might be kowtowing to the city's celebrity-driven culture – he made clear that he was courting a less brash brand of clientele.

'Anyone who is vaguely interested in fashion will use the word 'love' when they talk about shoes," muses the shoe designer, Georgina Goodman. "You don't say, 'I love trousers'. You might say, 'I love that jacket'. But people always say, 'I love shoes'." Particularly, it would seem, Goodman's shoes.

"You must try the snake soup, and I'd recommend that with pink champagne." Some offers are irresistible, and the business elite of today's Hong Kong certainly live in their own way. But my bankers' dinner ended in disappointment. We had made the traditional trip up "The Peak" to enjoy the view on a warm winter's evening, but forget Kowloon or Victoria Bay - we could barely see to the end of our arms.
