• The must-see:

    mad men, season 6

    The cult hymn to the morally dubious advertising world of '60s NYC returns to US screens this week. Why is it so popular? The dark characters, of course. Jon Hamm's Don Draper (above with current wife Megan, played by Jessica Paré) appeals despite his adultery; his cruel ex-wife Betty (January Jones) is redeemed by her pursuit of happiness. Starts April 7

    STATEMENT PIECE:

    Evening boots

    Stilettos, slingbacks and pumps are no longer the only port of call for cocktail dressing. Enter the evening ankle boot, an utterly modern punctuation point for spring/summer. Oscar de la Renta’s laser-cut leather booties are an exquisite case in point: slip them on with a sheer-paneled LBD or leather pants and a silk vest.
