turia’s baby bliss

What a big week it’s been! Brad Pitt won his first ever Oscar at the 92nd Academy Awards and the show made history when South Korean dark comedy Parasite swept the awards, becoming the first ever non-English language film to take out the top title of Best Picture (read more on pg. 4-19). A couple who probably missed the Hollywood awards night are Turia Pitt and partner Michael Hoskin, who were cooing over their gorgeous new family member, Rahiti. Already proud parents to 2-year-old Hakavai, Pitt and Hoskin announced the arrival of their baby boy on Sunday. The busy mum then took to Instagram to share how things are going in their household with their new addition. “Just momentarily popping my head out of the newborn bubble (where I vacillate between sheer, golden…

star gazing

Making his way into the Dolby Theatre for the 92nd annual Academy Awards on Sunday, Brad Pitt was thrilled to be wrapping up his winning awards season. “It’s exciting to get to the end,” he told reporters. “It’s exciting for it to be the biggest of the biggest.” His Once Upon A Time in Hollywood co-star Julia Butters, 10, was ready for anything, packing a turkey sandwich in her purse. “It’s the Oscars,” she told WHO. “There can’t be any regrets. There’s no going back!” Pitt, Keanu Reeves and Charlize Theron all brought their mums (“I won the award for best date for sure,” bragged Theron), while Joker winner Joaquin Phoenix made it a date night with actress fiancée Rooney Mara. Leonardo DiCaprio made things award show official with his girlfriend Camila…

all that glitters

CYNTHIA ERIVO ATELIER VERSACE Nominated for her performance in Harriet, Erivo moved many to tears when she performed the song ‘Stand Up’. She’d previously boycotted the BAFTAs because all the acting nominees were white. RENÉE ZELLWEGER ARMANI PRIVÉ The popular Best Actress winner donned a sleek, one-shoulder sequinned, floor-length sweeping gown that Judy Garland herself would have loved. SCARLETT JOHANSSON OSCAR DE LA RENTA She missed out in two acting categories, but rode high in the glam stakes in this beautiful strapless gown featuring a sheer corset-style top and slinky silky skirt that showcased her incredible figure.

time to party

The Governors Ball was the first stop for winners. Laura Dern had her trophy engraved with her family in tow, Renée Zellweger gazed lovingly at her new hardware while toting a wine glass and Brad Pitt sipped on a soft drink and snacked on the Wolfgang Puck-created offerings like taro root tacos and smoked salmon Oscar statues as he waited his turn. Best Actor Joaquin Phoenix first made a pit stop in Los Angeles’ Koreatown to grab a takeaway from plant-based restaurant Monty’s Good Burger with fiancée Rooney Mara (who changed into high-top sneakers). Another hot ticket for the night was Elton John’s annual viewing party, hosted by the Queer Eye cast and which raised more than $9.5 million for AIDS charities. As guests watched the ceremony, the singer slipped out…

‘i was so emotional’

From her home on the other side of the world, Olivia Newton-John watched aghast as this season’s deadly fires destroyed huge chunks of her homeland. “I felt sick,” the 71-year-old singer-actress tells WHO of learning of the Australian bushfires from California. “I couldn’t watch it, in fact, because I was so emotional.” News of this season’s devastating fires, which killed 33 people, razed more than 2000 homes and wiped out millions of our native fauna, was “too intense”, she says. “I felt so sad hearing about people losing their homes and the animals that couldn’t get away and had no way of knowing what was going on. It really broke my heart.” “It’s a weird feeling. You feel helpless” She wanted to do something – anything – but didn’t know where to start.…

mafs bride stacey ‘i stood by my jailed ex’

As far as appearances go, Adelaide single mum Stacey knows that her blonde hair and designer clothes can make people assume she’s got no substance. But there’s much more to this MAFS bride than meets the eye, as her recently completed law degree – at the age of 25, no less – shows. “Men often see me as this girl, a one-night stand, nothing exclusive,” she tells WHO. “And girls just automatically judge … I like to keep to myself and some people call that stuck-up, but it’s actually me protecting myself because I’ve been so hurt before.” With no time for dating and a goal to be married by 30, the mum of two may have found her ideal husband in cheeky businessman Michael, who also has a young child. But…
