McCartney signs P&G perfume deal

Stella McCartney’s Fall/Winter 2013-2014 ready-to-wear show in Paris yesterday

Fur-clad rivals left green with envy as Stella McCartney sticks to eco-chic

Portobello House Hotel Bistro, 225 Ladbroke Grove, London W10 (020-3181 0929)

Ladbroke Grove is a history lesson in brick and concrete. It was the core of the Ladbroke Estate, an explosion of posh properties built in the 1840s after the Hippodrome Racecourse, north of Portobello Road, failed to attract punters and closed down. The classy gardens, squares, villas and crescents of 'Leafy Ladbroke' came to rival the stylish Whig mansions of Holland Park to the south. Unfortunately, on the north side, the demand for house-building for wealthy Victorians dwindled, then stopped, in the 1860s. It was a project which just ran out of money.
