Kitty Spencer is a breath of fresh air. She may be a member of one of Britain’s most prominent aristocratic families – her aunt is the late Princess Diana and her father, the 9th Earl Spencer – but she couldn’t be more down to earth as we found out on our cover shoot.

She’s also making a name for herself as both a fashion ambassador and a charity campaigner – but no comparisons with her famous aunt, please. Kitty is very much her own person and bringing a new-gen sensibility to her work and passions.

I enjoyed reading about the lives of two of today’s biggest supermodels, Bella Hadid and Taylor Hill in our exclusive interviews. Both shared their insecurities – Bella confessing to finding it hard being “judged by the way I look” and crediting Kate Moss with inspiring her “to be myself”, and Taylor revealing that she was “painfully shy” as a kid and “had to learn to be confident”.
Nice to know these other-worldly creatures are just like the rest of us (almost). Roll on summer…
