Tribute to three sides of Fab Four

Next month, an upsurge in Beatlemania looks likely on a level not seen since the Fab Four's heyday in the Sixties. November sees the release of a single, recorded by Paul, George and Ringo with old vocals from John, widely expected to be the Christmas number one. A six-part ITV series, The Beatles Anthology, with exclusive archive material on the Fab Four, is also to be screened.

you're never too old to party

METROPOLITAN LIFE You had a roaring twenties - night-clubs, substance (ab)use, hangovers swiftly dealt with by lunchtime pints. But now you find techno a turn off and drugs a drag. Where now for Generation What Next?

We're off on a spree to Gay Paree

With Paris now an easy train journey from Waterloo, railway fever has already gripped the Brits. Vicky Ward reports from Eurostar

Liquid sweetness: What could be easier? There is a hand-me-down quality to this summer's dresses, evocative of the flea market and the jumble sale. Alison Veness reports

'THE MOST planes I've flown in a month: 40' - Tatjana Patitz. 'With the size of my mortgage at the moment, I'm afraid I'm looking at another 50 years in this business' - Yasmin Le Bon. 'How do you get to the top in this business? It helps if you're blonde, have big tits and sleep with all the photographers . . . just kidding' - Helena Christensen.

Prototypes from the perimeters: He ran away from home; had no training; makes clothes for Madonna but shuns the limelight. Roger Tredre meets Koji Tatsuno

THEY love Koji Tatsuno in Paris. They flock to his shop on the Left Bank. They fight for tickets to his fashion shows. The great designers, from Azzedine Alaa to Yohji Yamamoto, applaud him. Celebs want to be dressed by him: his client list includes Madonna, Diana Ross, Greta Scacchi, Miranda Richardson. At his last show, in March, le tout Paris was in the front row. Supermodels - Kate Moss, Yasmin Le Bon, Helena Christensen - had waived their usual fees because they wanted to take part.

Fashion: Clad in clodhoppers and very little else: What to wear with that tissue-thin tea dress? Doc Martens, perhaps, or even a pair of Wellington boots

CHIROPODISTS should be thrilled. The required footwear for this summer does not come with dainty little Louis heels or teetering stilettos, writes Marion Hume. If you are not walking barefoot - which may look fresh and lovely in fashion pictures, but is a touch impractical for most real life - the shape of summer footwear looks surprisingly like that of your foot.
