    Let’s get one thing straight: Amanda de Cadenet is a girls’ girl. She may look like every man’s fantasy, but she’s a female-championing, sisterhood-loving crusader for womankind. Take her television show, The Conversation With Amanda de Cadenet, in which she explores women’s issues with celebrity friends including Gwyneth Paltrow and Lady Gaga. While the bombshell exterior has barely changed, the woman beneath is a different species to the one who burst onto the scene in the early ’90s. At 41, de Cadenet is in the midst of her second act. The first went like this:
