A new weight-loss drug works. Is that good?

By Financial Times

FT Weekend

Saturday, 30 July

This week, we hear about a new 'miracle' weight-loss drug called Wegovy. It has unprecedented clinical results and endorsements from celebrities such as Queen Latifah. But critics say it deals with the symptom but not the cause. Then, we’re joined by Lauren Indvik, the FT's fashion editor. She explains how to efficiently pinpoint your personal style, and build a wardrobe that saves money, time and carbon emissions. Plus, she answers listener questions.
