Sophie Morrris: Forget Beth Ditto. Fat is still a fashion issue

I am so over the fashion world's obsession with Beth Ditto. The Gossip's fat frontwoman has been everywhere in recent weeks. On the cover of one magazine (naked), between the sheets in another. She might as well have been the official mascot at Paris Fashion Week. She posed with Karl Lagerfeld before squeezing into the sequinned bustier and hotpants he had designed especially for her to perform in at the Fendi party. She's been snapped hanging out with Kate Moss and front row at Vivienne Westwood. At the Jean Paul Gaultier and Loewe shows, she wrapped herself in skintight printed dresses.

He's Talking, Cottesloe NT, London

Over the past week, I've seen a series of shows involving (and sometimes about) young people and theatre. The worst was Disney's High School Musical. The best was He's Talking, beautifully performed in the Cottesloe by the Television Workshop, a youth group from Nottingham. Nicholas Wright's play was part of the National's New Connections project, which commissions dramatists to write for teenagers. After shows all over the UK, the best are invited to an NT showcase.
