I’ve been reading copy and approving regular page layouts at my desk all week. Do you want to know what’s in September? Well, obviously, I can’t give away everything (I’m not an editorial fool), but I can give you five clues as to what will fill this autumn issue of ELLE, which is the star of the new season, the one you write your wardrobe wish list with:

1. Shoes (a given) – but what is the new look you’ll all be able to wear each day?

2. An interview that saw our intrepid reporter travel the world to meet a fashion icon so legendary it’s taken eight years for me to persuade this person to do it

3. An astrological surprise. Yes, really. Bet my Louboutins you’ll never guess this feature

4. All the new beauty trends and how you’ll wear them. Not giving anything away here – we do this annually and it’s the best report in the business

5. A horse. Yes, a horse
