London Fashion Week is tough work. Really, it is. Not only do we have to sit and watch the fabulous fashion of the future on the catwalk (sigh), we then have to hobnob with style icons (double sigh) AND quaff on champagne (triple sigh). The horror of it all. Don't believe us? Well come try it for yourself at LFW Festival at Store Studios – where you'll be subjected to runway shows by the likes of Jamie Wei Huang and Nicopanda, talks by industry experts including Daphne Guinness, Orla Kiely and ELLE's own Harriet Stewart, and fizz from the Pommery Champagne Bar – and see how YOU like it.
London Fashion Week Festival, The Store Studios, 180 Strand, WC2R
Carey Mulligan is having a moment. Sure, she's had plenty of moments – winning a Bafta for An Education, say; or getting off with the Gosling in Drive. But, just as her BBC drama Collateral is the show everyone's talking about, she's also now starring in a one-woman play at The Royal Court – meaning that this is a Moment with a capital 'M'. Written by Dennis Kelly (Matilda the Musical), Girls & Boys sees Ms Mulligan portray one side of an unravelling marriage – calling into question the nature of gender, violence and 'domestic bliss'. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll come away with one hell of a woman-crush.
Until 17 March; from £12
Royal Court Theatre, Sloane Square, Chelsea, London SW1W 8AS
