Can you believe we've reached the ripe (young) age of 10? Yes, a decade ago Grazia launched to a chorus of: 'A weekly glossy? Are you mad? It will never work!' Oh, how those words were eaten. Almost overnight Grazia became a publishing sensation, an agenda and trend-setting eyes, ears and mouthpiece for every upscale woman in the country. 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.

So to celebrate our ten years at the top do you think we'd just make do with a glass of Prosecco and a bit of cake? Hell no! 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. Futureproof your wardrobe, go down fashion memory lane with our wall of It bags and choose your favourite outfit and London designer of the decade. Meanwhile, our Ten Talks will feature panel events and inspirational speakers debating everything from feminism to fashion, relationships to careers. And the best bit? We want you to join us!
