Word out of London this morning says that Hilary Alexander, the much-beloved fashion director of the Telegraph is set to write her memoirs following her retirement from the paper. "I've always wanted to write an autobiography because I've lived such an incredible life, quite a strange life," she said. "I mean, I was born in New Zealand and somehow managed to become fashion director of the Telegraph! There's just so much to remember! I've had such wonderful adventures around the world - not just the usual New York, Paris and Milan - but countries that you would never think of, like Easter Island, Kazakhstan, Bhutan, Cambodia and Sri Lanka!" The memoir is scheduled for a 2012 release. [Vogue UK]
