Tamara Mellon, OBE, is the former Chief Creative Officer and co-founder of luxury brand Jimmy Choo. She's responsible for creating some of the world's most glamourous high heels. Tamara joins Emma Barnett to discuss her new memoir, In My Shoes, and reveals why she decided to write such a candid book about her troubled childhood, her battle with drink and drugs and her decision to quit Jimmy Choo in 2011.
Kacey Musgraves is a 25 year old singer-songwriter from Texas who is making major waves in the US country and western scene. With her mix of rebellious lyrics and traditional country sounds, Kacey challenges the conservatism of small town life in the Deep South.
Why aid agencies are failing the world’s girls
Aid agencies are failing the world’s girls. That’s the damning verdict of a new report by children’s charity Plan International which says during disasters and emergencies adolescent girls become more vulnerable and are more likely to be exploited. This leads to more sexual abuse, violence, pregnancy and disease. So what needs to change? Guests: Kerry Smith from Plan UK and Cat Carter from Save the Children.
