We’ve reached the third episode of Fashion Unzipped, the new podcast from the Telegraph fashion team. Since it’s the end of the year, we thought we’d invite you to a review of the year in fashion: the highs, the lows, the supermodels, the messages and all the fur-flying, red-carpet rebelling in between.

How to dress to (practically) guarantee a happy New Year’s Eve
Lisa is diving into blue sequins, Emily is finally breaking out her Tibi dress and Caroline is hard at work deciding which public figure to dress up as for her annual fancy-dress party (last year’s costume: The Queen on her 90th birthday).
Whatever the specifics of your celebrations, we urge a glam approach. ‘You can be at home, just with the cat, and if you’re dressed up, it feels a little bit better,’ Lisa says.

Why we’re smiling about Christy Turlington’s lines
When Versace released its spring-summer 2018 campaign, Lisa noticed that photographer Steven Meisel had left model Christy Turlington’s smile lines unretouched- and yes, this does feel a little like a breakthrough.
‘[Retouched faces] are not what people want to see anymore,’ Caroline says. ‘People have seen so much of that super-airbrushed era that now you do just want to see people in all their natural glory.’
Could 2017 be the year fur finally fell out of fashion?
With brands including Gucci, Jimmy Choo and Michael Kors shunning fur, we detect a sea change in what’s acceptable -- and high-quality faux furs make it clear that that there’s no longer any need for real fur. ‘It’s going out of fashion,’ Lisa says, ‘The worst thing you can ever say in the fashion industry is, “Oh, it’s not modern,” and I think that’s exactly what Gucci said.’
What was stylish in 2017?
From the red-carpet rebels of the Cannes Film Festival to the Versace supermodel reunion, we revisit the top fashion moments of the year- and discuss the trends we’ll be happy to leave behind (overcomplicated denim, we’re looking at you).
