Valentino, Burberry and Costume National doing their but for gender equality
Never let it be said that we RF girls don't value equality. Sure we could wax lyrical about the widening pay gap and the continued existence of page 3 girls, but what really gets our goats is that for so long, men have been deprived of clutch bags. Well no more!

As we have observed before, fashion can be a cruel mistress, but once in a while a trend comes along which makes you feel oh so very grateful and thus the Stockholm Syndrome continues. So it is with the cape trend this Autumn; perhaps the only piece of clothing to make you feel at once cosy and a bit like a superhero.

We tried to get Alison Hammond off of This Morning to introduce the competition but she's terribly busy with her Strictly schedule, so here goes...London Fashion Weekend is fast approaching and we have two tickets to give away for the Marchesa Notte show this Saturday. Cue collective "Ooooh"
Notte is the little sister label of London born design house Marchesa, which returned home to LFW this season marking its 10th anniversary with a delicate, floral collection, which had us wishing we were nymphs so we could scamper around the forest in their beautifully ethereal frocks.

Scarlett Women at Sacai, Meadham Kirchhoff and Valentino respectively.
Hate to be the harbinger of doom, but bad news is on the horizon, unholy red has been declared the colour of this upcoming season. While red lipstick and nails are A-okay - just ask Dot Cotton -red clothes make me feel, well, just a little bit funny. They either evoke images of Kat Slater, or, somehow make me feel as though I have a carnation tucked behind my ear.
There's something altogether too noticeable about red, which is why it's the perfect colour for things that you need to either spot or dodge, like post boxes or double decker buses. But when fashion says "jump", we can but ask, "how high?" and with that, here is our selection of the least lady of the night red things. The general rule of thumb seems to be to keep things conservative, with a little c of course.
This & Other Stories clutch is ideal for gingerly dipping a toe in the trend.
Ladylike pleats and a high neck mean that this red Zara dress is perfectly prim and proper.
In our dreams we wear this preposterously beautiful Simone Rocha skirt.
