with Angela Huth
'Oh not black again, dear' says Denis - but Margaret Thatcher knows a secret or two about old faithfuls and reliable standby s. This evening the Prime Minister reveals the inside story of her wardrobe.
Extraordinary and ordinary women unlock their wardrobes and tell all about who they dress for and why they dress as they do. Selina Scott always wanted 'to look a bit different from everyone else'; a probation officer last wore a dress when she danced with the Prince of Wales; a housewife has an eye for the 20p bargain with a designer label. It all goes to show that the only thing in vogue is individuality.
Enjoyably malicious and unusually thoughtful. GUARDIAN Fascinating and vastly entertaining.
