Katie Grand is feeling confident. It's an unusual emotion in these times of market uncertainty. But, nonetheless, it's there: she has just returned from the European fashion weeks and, after a hectic fortnight, has a date of her own to look forward to.

I've been bombarded with fey, young-looking models for the past couple of years," says Beth Dadswell, The Independent's senior stylist, "so Amy Greenhough's intriguing beauty really made her stand out from the crowd." Twenty-two-year-old Greenhough's look combines the two classic idioms of fashion modelling: she has a natural beauty and poise that women want to emulate, and a magnetism that ensures your total attention to any shoot you see her in.

If, as the old saying goes, politics is showbusiness for ugly people, then the female cast of America's extraordinary Presidential election of 2008 has been certainly doing its bit to prove that old sayings aren't always true. A string of unlikely style icons has emerged, from matinee idol Michelle Obama to Cindy McCain, the perfectly-preserved brewery heiress who was profiled by Vogue, and her pneumatic, country music-loving student daughter, Meghan. Then we met Sarah Palin, whose slender frame, suggestive wink, and power suits have set many a middle-aged male voter's heart a-flutter. Now it is the turn of Joe Biden, who unleashes his harem of photogenic ladies in the new edition of US Vogue.

Manolo Blahnik tumbles into the room wearing an extremely dapper royal-purple suit, purple and yellow knitted tie, orange suede shoes and black circular glasses à la Le Corbusier. He stretches out his hand, and when I shake it he squeaks in pain, shaking, then retracting it. Have I accidentally crushed the phalanges of the world's finest shoemaker with an overly firm grip? Thankfully, no. He has had a sudden attack of cramp. This is the result, he explains, of just having flown in from Spain the previous evening; he is very tired, he says, and a bit disorientated.

Alex Kroll was a member of that select band, who, in escaping to England from the pogroms and persecutions of the 1930s, at the hands of Communists and Nazis alike, came to add incalculably to English cultural and intellectual life. A graphic designer by training, he made his entire career with the magazine publisher Condé Nast, as art director, editor and finally, from its inception, as director of the group's publishing arm, Condé Nast Books. From first to last, albeit with unvarying discretion and modesty, ever concerned to encourage and bring on those who worked under and with him, he left his own indelible mark on everything he touched. If there was always room for visual interest, innovation and even excitement, the cheap or vulgar had no place.
