I'm not sure that Anna Wintour, the editor of American Vogue, needs anybody to feel sorry for her, but she is a victim of sorts. I refer to a headline that appeared above a story on page 3 of last Saturday's paper, "Wintour goes nuclear about restaurant on her doorstep".

My earliest memories are of being dragged around Biba by my older sister. She was a bit of a spoiled princess and wouldn't go out on a Saturday night without a brand-new outfit, including new shoes and handbag. Every weekend, I'd be carted around town with her. Surprisingly, it didn't put me off clothes for ever, rather it sparked a lifelong interest in fashion.

The inventive and innovative photographer Brian Duffy shot some of the best known pictures of the Swinging Sixties for magazines such as Vogue, Queen, Town and Nova in Britain, and Elle in France, and became as infamous as his friends and contemporaries David Bailey and Terence Donovan. His dynamic style of fashion photography and his playful portraits of Michael Caine, John Lennon and Harold Wilson leapt off the pages and embodied the free spirit of the era. In the 1970s, this irreverent, occasionally cantankerous character, moved into advertising and devised intriguing, effective and memorable posters and full-page ads for Benson & Hedges cigarettes and Smirnoff vodka, as well as the striking cover for David Bowie's first chart-topping album, Aladdin Sane.

The new Foreign Secretary, William Hague, stood side by side with Hillary Clinton in Washington yesterday and delivered a convincing message of reassurance: Anglo-American ties will continue to be Britain's foreign policy priority under a Tory-led coalition.

Samantha Harris's mother was one of the "Stolen Generations", removed from her parents simply because she was black. Now, Ms Harris seems destined to become the first Aboriginal supermodel, after treading the catwalk for 18 designers at Australian Fashion Week and featuring on the cover of next month's Australian Vogue.

Sipping cocktails at home with Her Majesty the Queen earlier this month – as you do – I couldn't help but notice that the very best dressed feet in the room all owed their elegant appearance to none other than Manolo Blahnik.

Standing six feet five in his Edwardian smoking jacket (or his Indian tunic or his favourite pyjama top) and the embroidered Kashmiri wedding cap that he habitually wore while at work, Norman Parkinson always stood out from the crowd. An 18-carat eccentric, born into a middle-class Edwardian family with an exotic history – his mother's grandfather Luigi was an Italian operatic bass who taught Queen Victoria to sing – he spent his career perfecting an image of the English gentleman while mix-and-matching, in his photographs, the homely and the bizarre.

George W. Bush and Tony Blair were "shoulder to shoulder" – but with David Miliband and Hillary Clinton, it is more a case of "eye to eye", as the world can see from these pictures taken yesterday as Nato foreign ministers convened in Brussels.

For most people, fairy-tales stay firmly put on the page. But for artist Su Blackwell, who creates whimsical, intricate paper-cut sculptures from second-hand books, the magical, mythical folkloric creatures spill over into everyday life. From Peter Pan to the Wizard of Oz, snow queens to ice maidens and whirling lit-up merry-go-rounds, words and illustrations rise from the pages in charming 3D forms. She creates scenes from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland as well as swaying sail boats and fish, majestic castles, paper princesses and secret gardens.
