Kaylyn Ang Account Manager, Watch & Jewellery What about your mum drives you nuts? Her cooking! When she says she s going to cook, I start worrying.” What do you admire about her? “I admire my mum’s hardworking nature, as she rarely utilises her work leave for holidays. She hardly takes any leave for that matter!” What’s the best lesson she’s taught you? “To love unconditionally.

editor’s letter

M is for May and, more importantly, M is for mothers, whom we are celebrating this month. I love that, through the course of my job, I get to meet so many power mothers who are changing the way we view matters maternal. Through this issue, we speak with these amazing mums, including covergirl Nadya Hutagalung, who’s come a long way since her modelling-veejay days. They share what motherhood has taught them and how it has changed them to be better, stronger, and more confident in their own skin. In “Ministry Of Mums”, page 22, Hegen founder Yvon Bock (left) says, “Children are the best teachers for their parents,” and I couldn’t agree more. As my children grow up, I’ve learnt to navigate changing tastes, needs and hormones. They have taught…

Gigi says wearing matchymatchy clothes helps her to bond with little Sophia. Fann Wong & Zed Lee Local actress Fann knows how to turn in a…

the posh life of victoria beckham

A mid-career switch may seem daunting to most, given the uncertainties and strangeness of entering an entirely different workplace, but that’s never stopped Victoria from chasing down her dream. As she celebrates a decade working in the fashion industry, we track how Posh Spice went from the concert stage to fashion runways. SPICE WORLD In 1996, thanks to their hit single “Wannabe”, Victoria gained international stardom as part of the all-female band, Spice Girls. Dubbed Posh Spice by the media, Victoria hailed her time in the band as the origins of her female-first approach to fashion. “The Spice Girls were successful because we celebrated women,” she says. “That’s why I do what I do today.” FAMILY COMES FIRST Since she started showcasing her new collections to the international press, her husband David and her…

a natural calling

It’s a sweltering morning in eastern Singapore, and I’m sandwiched in between our videographer and makeup artist in a cab as we make our way to Changi Beach Club for our photoshoot with Nadya when my phone beeps. It’s Ling, her manager at Fly Entertainment. Though Nadya is travelling a lot at the moment thanks to her work with the United Nations as an Environment Goodwill Ambassador, she is also making her rounds in Asia promoting her new coffee table book, Walk With Me, which chronicles her life’s journey as an activist dedicated to environment preservation and wildlife protection. Ling is calling me to say Nadya’s already making her way to the location as we speak. “She’ll be there early,” she explains, a remark which delights the crew who are used to…
