the editor’s letter

There are many reasons why I love films. Yes, they can be thrilling or entertaining, or just a chance to zone out, but at their best, they offer a rare insight into another person’s creative vision, a chance to see the world through someone else’s eyes. That, and the fact I’m quite partial to a choc-top. Snacks aside, if I had to put my finger on just one thing that has fuelled my love of cinema, a single reason why I’ve learned to not just watch movies but to truly appreciate them, it wouldn’t be hard to pick: Brad Pitt. I’ve never been a big on-screen violence guy, but when Fight Club and Snatch arrived within a year of one another, I was sold. They cemented Pitt as an actor whose…

LAUREN BARGE PRODUCER What does a typical day producing shoots for Vogue and GQ look like? No day is the same. That’s what keeps my role so exciting. Working on local and/or international production will determine how I need to address the day, whether it’s creative meetings, talent casting, client liaising, prop sourcing, reconciling budgets or working with the teams to ensure a seamless shoot. What’s the best thing about your job? The people that I work with. Producing for Vogue and GQ, I am constantly surrounded by Australia’s top creatives. Fave shoot you’ve worked on for this issue? I really loved working on Sarah Starkey and Georges Antoni’s proportions shoot (p124). Creatively it’s always great to work with a new team and fresh eye. The shoot turned out really beautiful: full of movement,…

Strawberry season The one time of the year in which the sun shines on the UK – Wimbledon is here. We’ve got you covered with not only everything big that happens at the grandest Grand Slam of them all, but all the on-court style we’re digging the most. STICKY WICKETS It could prove to be a mighty fine month on Britain’s sporting calendar. Aside from Wimbles, we’ll also be keeping tabs as one of the most hotly anticipated Ashes series in years descends on the UK. ONCE UPON A TIME... IN HOLLYWOOD Away from the sporting arena, it’s all about one movie. Tarantino is back, and he’s putting Leo and Brad Pitt together on screen for the first time. We’ll bring you the full breakdown – frame by frame if we have to. VENICE FILM FESTIVAL An…

DRY JULY To help you get through the longest month of the year, our round-up of the top five non-alcoholic beers shines light into the breweries breathing life into one of food and drink’s most depressing concepts.

ROAD TESTS Not a day goes by that we don’t get an email about some kooky new health trend to try out, from LeBronapproved recovery boots to overnight pimple pads. Our solution? Try them all, and let you know what we think.…

dan rookwood says put. down. the. phone.

My name is Dan and I am a phoneaholic. Chances are, you also have an unhealthy dependency. Bet you’ll feel the urge to check social media or email even while reading this column. I’ll try not to take it personally. The average person touches their phone 2617 times a day, according to a 2016 study. For the heaviest 10 per cent of users (guilty, y’honour), it’s 5427 touches a day. Over a third of us check our phones within five minutes of waking up (for many people it is the very thing that rouses us in the first place). And 79 per cent scroll in the hour before sleep. We panic if we mislay our phone, feel anxious if the battery drains, and some of us experience those phantom vibrations in…
