On the face of it, it would appear that Nigella Lawson has moved on since her annus horribilis. At least, it seems so from how she looks on the cover of the April issue of British Vogue.

In 2013, the celebrity chef and food writer was divorced from her husband, art collector Charles Saatchi and dealt with allegations of drug use that were part of the very public fraud trial of the Grillo sisters (Lawson admitted that she has used illegal substances). The Grillos, former employees of Lawson, were accused of racking up more than $1 million unauthorized charges on her credit cards, but were acquitted last December.
