Photo shoots with our cover stars are often one of the most fun parts of putting The Australian Women’s Weekly together each month. Spending time with some of the amazing women we feature in a relaxed setting and making them look and feel wonderful is a highlight for our team. But our incredible shoot with Rachel Hunter this month is one like no other. For a start it was shot in India!
