We've been the magazine everyone from prime ministers to fashion luminaries has wanted to speak to, and we hope you'll agree that we've delivered the finest and fastest edit of news, fashion and beauty, week in and week out.

We're marking our 10th birthday by launching #Grazia10, a three-week celebration which encompasses an exhibition and series of talks called Ten Talks at London's esteemed Getty Images Gallery. Combining Grazia's unique design with Getty Image's iconic imagery, #Grazia10 takes visitors on an interactive journey through the pages of the magazine and the fastest-paced decade the world has seen.
