It has been one year since Platinum’s first issue hit the stands — and what a year it has been! We’ve loved working with our readers, experts and ambassadors to make Platinum the fabulous mag that it is and we can’t wait for many more adventures together. Let’s celebrate with a sneak peek into our wonderful November issue — on sale now. Cheers!

On the cover

“Wear what you want at any age.”

TV presenter and British household name Ruth Langsford opens up about her experience with ageing, some family hardships and sometimes having to tell Eamonn exactly how it is!

“Don’t let clothes wear you, wear things you’re happy in and that make you feel good”, she tells Gemma Calvert, who gives you an inside look at the life of this trusted and down-to-earth TV favourite.


It’s time to make an impact with our bumper guide to wearing suits with confidence. Tailoring has a new feel and it has never looked better. Forget muted or subdued — go for bold with strong shades and new combinations. Autumn dressing has never been so much fun.

Our fashion insider shares her expert advice on the ultimate outerwear for this season. From structured tailoring to long-lasting waterproofs, there’s something for every occasion in this month’s column.

One coat, five ways. An amazing coat is a great addition to any wardrobe, with a neutral yet show-stopping style, you can adapt it for so many different occasions.

Food & Drink

Our seasonal tipples and nibbles are sure to make your mouth water. From tangy dried fruits and fireside sangria to clementine and chocolate dust, we suggest you start testing them now — it would be rude not to!

Come into the warmth with our selection of fresh and decadent dishes that prove eating for comfort doesn’t always mean carb-loaded and stodgy.

Homes & Gardens

We are starting to get festive! Join us as we learn how to make modern wreaths using only dried flowers, autumn leaves and delicate brass hoops.
