I don’t read many fashion magazines, in fact, I only read Elle UK regularly. I started my subscription a few years ago, and bought it every single month for a long time before that. I’m not quite sure why it is the only one I bother reading, but it doesn’t seem to be as full of confidence-destroying “advice” and general junk as a lot of other women’s magazine. I want fashion and beauty, not recipes, sex tips, training regiments and statements about how my brows are too limp and my elbows are too wrinkly and my vagina is, I don’t know, too sad looking. Leave my vagina alone, dammit, I just want to look at handbags! Anyway, they had a regular column a few years ago where they would feature a well-known woman in every issue and present her 10 rules of style. I absolutely loved this column, and a while back I decided to scan them so that they would be easier to find. The fact that I could share them with you guys didn’t even dawn on me until last week, but better late than never, right?

What do you think, are there any rules here that you can relate to? Do you have any “rules of style” of your own?
