Christina Patterson: If bigger breasts are the answer, what's the question?

I'm a big fan of plastic surgery. Without it, I think I might feel like a freak.

Ready To Wear: The 'Fatal' dress acts like plastic surgery &ndash; but without the mess

Interactive fashion – that genre rare for its democracy in a world of diktats – comes in many shapes and forms.
