Club Tropicana

It’s the white shorts, says ELLE editor-in-chief Lorraine Candy. (And, we hasten to add, the fact that the drinks are free.)

Faith

Or, who needs faith when you have cowboy boots, a guitar and cutting-edge technology that allows you to flip from black and white to technicolour in an instant?

Last Christmas

Snow! Sledging! Novelty jumpers! Puppy-eyed George! What's not to love?

Outside

Take that, tabloid press.

Too Funky

Because it’s like that episode of Sex And The City where Carrie falls on the catwalk. Only, well, funkier. And with Linda Evangelista.

BONUS PLAY! Freedom

Simply super.
