TALK OF THE TOWN: Controversial Downing Street designer Lulu Lytle comes out fighting


Downing Street designer Lulu Lytle has come out fighting after her style was denounced as ‘imperial nostalgia’. 

Author Sathnam Sanghera tweeted the term and described the PM’s apartment she helped decorate and furnish – above Chancellor Rishi Sunak’s office – as the ‘ultimate brown person nightmare’.

My photo, below, shows an example of Lulu’s style. 

She tells me her work is ‘underpinned by research and discussions with experts about global influences on design and exchange of ideas’. 

She roped in textile expert Karun Thakar to defend her and he messaged me to say: ‘We need individuals like Lulu who are aware and supportive of these struggles’.

Thandiwe’s tat is turtelly crazy

When I first spotted this Instagram snap from Line Of Duty star Thandiwe Newton, I thought she’d been to a children’s party and let one of the youngsters get carried away with some crayons. 

In fact, this etching of cartoon character Touché Turtle seems to be a real tattoo, which won’t rub off with soap and water.

The Bafta-winning actress, 49, said the heroic fencing reptile was her ‘childhood favourite’ and she had the inking done at Frith Street Tattoo in London’s Soho.

It’ll be interesting to see how it matches her next red-carpet gown.

Daisy Lowe claimed she was ‘Covid tested and ready to party’ when she took this bathroom selfie. 

I’d argue she wasn’t quite ready as she’s missing something rather important – her clothes. 

The 33-year-old model and former Strictly Come Dancing contestant, daughter of rocker Gavin Rossdale and fashion designer Pearl Lowe, was dressed only in a black bra, high-waisted underwear and tights.

Later in the week she posted her first ever TikTok video dressed once again in not a lot. 

‘I recommend shaking off these grey days dancing around in your undies,’ she wrote. Daisy will be chilled to the bone if she carries on like this.
