editor’s letter

IT’S NOT OFTEN a special project comes along that captivates the entire team and sends us into a whirlwind. But that’s what happened when Sydney’s iconic Taronga Zoo approached us three months ago. The offer was to collaborate on an issue devoted to raising awareness about their conservation work and commitment to the ongoing education of our future scientists and eco-warriors. These aren’t the usual topics we tackle at BAZAAR, but if we want future generations of Australians to grow up to the hum of cicadas and be able to paddle alongside dolphins during a morning surf, we need to do something to stop the extinctions affecting every inch of the planet. Last month, we were honoured to join the Duke and Duchess of Sussex at the opening of Taronga Zoo’s new…

GLYN AVERY Life is lived from a different perspective when you’re six metres tall, so when BAZAAR was lucky enough to get close to one of Taronga Western Plains Zoo’s friendliest residents, we were all ears to learn what life is like up there, with the help of zookeeper Glyn Avery. See the full shoot on page 102. What’s this giraffe’s name? “Zuberi. His name means ‘strong’ in Swahili. He’s 15 months old and lives with 12 other giraffes, the second-largest herd in Australia.” What is Zuberi’s backstory? “His mother, Ntombi, came to the zoo from New Zealand as part of the regional breeding program. Giraffes are iconic animals, but many people aren’t aware that wild populations have dropped 40 per cent in the past 30 years. Threats include habitat destruction,…

gemma ward

She is one of the great icons of Australian modelling, credited with ushering in a new era of doll-like beauty following her fashion week debut in 2003. After a six-year hiatus, Ward made a triumphant runway return, opening Prada’ s S/S 2015 show to a global fashion frenzy. Off the runway, the mother of two favours sleek tailoring and fresh shirting in a palette of navy, black and white, while the red carpet is all about understated supermodel glamour: a blush slip dress or, recently, a fresh apricot Bianca Spender suit at Melbourne’s Caulfield Cup. THE LOOK Photographed by GEORGES ANTONI. Styled by NAOMI SMITH. Gemma Ward wears Givenchy dress, $12,750. Hair by Sophie Roberts at The Artist Group; makeup by Linda Jefferyes at The Artist Group. Gemma Ward is represented by…

my wish list isabel lucas

MY STYLE is eclectic, vintage and ethical. I appreciate Australian designers who adhere to ethical and sustainable creation. I LOVE Manning Cartell, nevenka, Kit Willow [of Kitx], Yeojin Bae and Bianca Spender. I also like Stella McCartney. I recently saw a Lee Mathews show [resort 2019] that explored eco-fashion concepts — their swimmers were made from recycled fishing nets, and they created a closed-loop system of recycling synthetics. I was in love with that. MY MOST WORN PIECE is a red T-shirt with a black horse head that sort of grew up with me. It’s very well worn. DRESSING DEPENDS ON MY MOOD. Recently, I’ve tended to lean towards black and no print. I have some slick fitted silk pants from Yeojin Bae that I adore and dress up or down (with an old…

IT WAS THE TERM “Who the hell do you think you are?” that rattled me. It was delivered with a snarl, semi-shouted repeatedly by veteran Sydney radio broadcaster Alan Jones, who had apparently decided it was his role to diminish and demean the highly capable CEO of Sydney Opera House, Louise Herron. She had come onto his program to discuss whether the culturally significant landmark should be used as a billboard to promote a horse race, but it was hardly an interview. There was no exchange of opinions, just an ugly, abrasive harangue delivered by Jones, which seemed designed to silence and humiliate. He talked over the top of her until the call was cut short. Jones has a reputation for being a bully, and the public backlash was swift,…
