Laura Tennant reports on the changing face of ageing
Kim Cattrall is "embracing" being single.
It's probably one of the most recognised fabric designs in the world. Huge splashy poppies in a variety of colours adorning umbrellas, bags, tea trays and bedding. And yet Unikko, from the Finnish design company Marimekko, only came about when a designer dared to defy her boss.
Spirited thriller the Roman way

The spirit of the Iraq Inquiry hangs over Roman Polanski's new film, 'The Ghost', which premiered in Berlin last night
Since Kevin Costner rescued her acting career, Olivia Williams has adopted a unique approach to her craft. And with a Polanski film in the can, a leading role in Joss 'Buffy' Whedon's new TV series and a winning turn in 'An Education', it seems to be paying dividends
I will survive, I'm sure, but the Priscilla wave that caught the Palace Theatre last night was a pretty strong blast of lethal elements: costumes that would have looked dated in a 1970s Talk of the Town floor show, a sick-making reunion between Jason Donovan as a drag queen and his little boy by a real, live woman (a rarity in this show), and a book that rhymes "hormone" with "whore moan" and demands that somebody shuts his Von Trapp. Yes, folks, it's the most successful show in the history of Australian and New Zealand musical theatre.
