LU­CIA VAN DER POST

Harper's Bazaar (UK) - - Contributors -

Van der Post tracks chee­tahs and black-maned Kala­hari lions in South Africa’s North­ern Cape Prov­ince on page 332. As a found­ing edi­tor of How To Spend It, she writes about ‘all things lovely and life-en­hanc­ing’, such as jew­ellery, clothes, per­fume and, of course, travel. What does beauty mean to you? ‘There is what

Roger Scru­ton once called

“the tran­scen­dent beauty of na­ture” but also “the in­ti­mate beauty of the hearth”. In peo­ple, it means a truth­ful­ness of be­ing, an in­di­vid­u­al­ity and, above all, kind­ness.’

The most beau­ti­ful place in the world ‘Among the long grasses and aca­cia-trees of the Kala­hari.’

Your beauty se­cret

‘Sleep, sleep and more sleep.’ You feel most beau­ti­ful when… ‘I am all glammed up for a ter­rific evening out.’
