Victoria's Secret Show comes to the UK!

It has been revealed, by two Angels no less, that the Victoria's Secret Show will take place in Earls Court, London this December 2nd. 
Stunning models, Adriana Lima and Candice Swanepoel announced the big move with a glam appearance at the brand's Bond Street store earlier today. The annual star-studded fashion show has previously been held in Miami, Cannes and LA, and they now have six stores in the UK. The Victoria's Secret 2013 Show in New York began with a 'British Invasion' section, fronted by Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn - a hint to their move across the pond, perhaps?
Here's hoping we get an invite!

Get the Game of Thrones look


It's the world's most-talked about TV drama with a huge international fan base, and we just can't get enough of it. Sophie Turner, who plays feisty teen, Sansa Stark in the hit fantasy show, was the gorgeous cover star of our 30th March issue, in which she filled us in on what we could expect from her character in the upcoming episodes. 

After the first episode of season 4 aired last week (with over 8 million viewers) we had so many questions; just why is Cersei so mad at Jaime? What is Dany feeding those huge dragons? And most importantly, just how gorgeous are the girls' medieval gowns? 
As well as the obvious excitement that our favourite drama is back on the screen, it's actually the decadent, rich and luxurious costumes that have really got the YOU fashion team talking. We're lusting after Daenerys and co.'s gorgeous hand-embroidered gowns.

Peaches Geldof's Death at 25

We were utterly shocked and saddened in the YOU offices this morning to hear the awful news about the death of Peaches Geldof at only 25 years old. Our hearts and thoughts go out to her friends and family who already suffered so much tragedy, following the death of Paula Yates; the mother of Peaches and her sisters Fifi, Pixie and Tiger Lily, in 2000. In a bid to remember the Peaches that we knew - a creative, passionate and bubbly person - here are some of her looks from over the years which led to her being seen as a source of inspiration for so many.
