Life and Style Darth Vader takes a selfie but gets the technique slightly wrong...

The popular franchise is attempting to engage with younger fans of the series

Ready to wear: The empire strikes back

We've dedicated both Ready To Wear and Get The Look to empire line because it is such a fabulous look, but difficult to get right (the secret's in the underwear). Although empire line is a bit of a misnomer (see next page), it has entered our vocabulary now and easily explains this divine look - one that suits and flatters just about any age, height and weight. Because empire line dresses are rather higher waisted than normal, they fair skim over any problem tummy/hip/bottoms and concentrate all the attention on the cleavage. This is an excellent excuse to romp around country mansions with bits of chiffon falling off your shoulders.

FILM / On Cinema

A pseudo-mystical question: does Clear and Present Danger owe its straightforwardness and sense of brooding calm to the Tom Clancy novel from whence it came, or are these qualities supplied less by genre conventions, and more by Harrison Ford (right) and the emanations from his star persona?

FILM / Beware the enemy in a smart suit

RELUCTANT hero Jack Ryan is back, unexpectedly promoted to take over from his ailing chief as Acting Deputy Director of the CIA. This means a lovely office - to complement his lovely wife and two near-invisible children - and the opportunity to be photographed with the President. So why does he look so sour? In Patriot Games, Harrison Ford wore the expression of a man with an early case of piles - but in Clear and Present Danger (12), it has intensified to a twisted glare of entrenched disgruntlement.
