Jackson Pollock's secret prize-winning recipe for apple pie discovered — Jackson Pollock's alcoholism and adultery are well documented. Less well known is that the celebrated modern artist was a massive foodie - before the term even came to prominence.

Sarah Saxty, a trend researcher and sourcing brand manager for Australian label Forever New, talks New York fashion — IT'S been a long time since New York's most stylish women hailed cabs in Manolo Blahnik kitten heels and satin floral corsages.
