I adore clothes - they're my weakest link! My mother was the same, and she taught me always to look polished.
I like to look put together without trying too hard. I don't want to look as if God's made another rainbow - I prefer muted, autumnal colours, like most fading redheads.
We mothers of grown-up daughters tend to view them with a mixture of love, exasperation, irritation and awe.
Every mother and daughter should make time for a trip together. It's good for the soul.
I saw George Bush at a benefit concert actually waving at Stevie Wonder. Someone had to tell him 'he can't see you'.
