Admit One Ep. 16 with Editor of Glamour Magazine Jo Elvin

Admit One Ep. 16 with Editor of Glamour Magazine Jo Elvin

I mean, just look at this photo of Glamour Magazine’s Jo Elvin & I – look how delighted I am!

As I write this I’m both so excited to be sharing this week’s podcast with you and also shocked and sad at how quickly time has flown and that this is the sixteenth and final episode in this first series; where did the time go?

Both leaving on a high and going out with a bang, yes both, this is the last episode of this series. At the helm of Glamour Magazine as editor since it launched an unbelievable 16 years ago (I remember buying the Kate Winslet cover in 2001!) Jo Elvin is one of the most influential women in the fashion industry and in my opinion one of the most inspiring. Both fiercely smart and funny it’s a real coup to have her on Admit One because she is someone I truly admire and my god does she spin a good yarn.

Fresh from hosting an exclusive screening of Amy Schumer & Goldie Hawn’s new film ‘Snatched’ I catch up with Jo and chat about the power of celebrities, what happened when Susan Sarandon stole her glasses and of course we talk about her three favourite films for their style icons. Enjoy this last episode and don’t forget to leave me a review on iTunes – I love and appreciate all of your support, comments and feedback.

Whilst I take a break from ‘Admit One with Antoni O’Brien’ you can catch up with my guests from the first series including brilliant film critic Jame King, broadcaster Clare Balding and DJ Sara Cox here.

Admit One Ep. 15 with Emily Hartridge aka YouTube’s Emily Hart

As I say, this weekly film podcast set to talk to different people and profiles from across the arts and so far I’ve welcomed broadcasters, authors, musicians and journalists into the Admit One studio, but what about the huge world of online? This week I am joined by YouTube creator Emily Hartridge aka ‘Emily Hart.’ With a weekly video series called ’10 Reasons Why,’ Emily has grown her YouTube following to over 300,000, no mean feat. As a film-lover she often satires film genres in her weekly videos, such as ‘Romantic Comedies in Real Life’ or the (no surprise here – very successful!) – ‘Porn Films in Real Life.’

We sit and talk about being kids of the 1990s, the fantasy genre, her love of gory horror films, love of Leonardo and why life is scarier than anything you see at the cinema.

My Style Safe-House: Jeans and a Shirt (I know – not wildly original…)

My Style Safe-House: Jeans and a Shirt (I know – not wildly original…)

If I were to think about my style uniform, you know, my go-to when I feel uninspired and reach for something safe, it has always been a variation of jeans and a shirt. Now, this may vary season-to-season depending on the trends and denim silhouette I’m favouring i.e.: in 2009 it was J Brand Love Story […]
