Not ready to bid farewell to summer? Whether you’re craving a relaxing rural retreat or balmy beach escape, don’t book anything this autumn without checking out the Mr & Mrs Smith hotel collection for inspiration.
For a child-free holiday, their ‘Grown Up Getaways’ section brings you the best boutique boltholes just for adults and guarantees there’ll be no screaming babies or over-energetic toddlers to spoil your style. For instance, the Tiberio Palace in Capri promises friendly five-star concierge service, a first-class spa with indoor and outdoor swimming pool. Bliss!

Gemma stole the show in a gloriously summery Dolce & Gabbana rose-printed dress with plenty of '60s-style swing. Red heels and a red handbag were the perfect finishing touches.
