Lisa Twang Assistant Editor I love my mother because... “She raised us, her three children, with so much love – and was brave enough to get her Honours degree at the age of 46. I love her sharp wit, amazing cooking skills, and how she has the most fun taste in music... She never apologises for singing and dancing along to Katy Perry!” Goh Sze Ming Marketing Manager I love my mother because... “Her selfless and unconditional love for me is beyond compare. She is someone I can always count on – rain, hail or shine – and is everything I could ever ask for in a mother. My view of life has taken on the warmest hue because I am raised by a lady with a good heart.” Elizabeth Liew Content Writer I love my mother…

editor’s letter

This May issue is our tribute to mothers. Where would we be without them? The unconditional love, the sacrifices... I know women who have put their careers in the back seat (willingly), so that they can spend time with their children during their formative years. Do they have regrets? Some say they have moments of envy at seeing their peers rise up above them, but they also share how much they treasure the time they have with their kids because they could never recreate them again. Then there’s the majority of mums whose life is a daily balancing act. It’s not easy juggling work and family but women have an innate strength and will to push things through, to give our children the best we can. The team at The…

age-defying mums

ELIZABETH HURLEY The youthful actress hasn’t aged a day since she had her son, Damian Hurley, 15 years ago. But he’s certainly grown to become a dashing young man. CINDY CRAWFORD The supermodel looks just as beautiful as she did during her debut and it looks like her daughter, Kaia Gerber, is following in her mum’s modelling footsteps. DEMI MOORE Demi doesn’t just look as if she stopped the clock, she actually appears to be reversing time. Luckily, she’s passed on her good genes to daughter Rumer Willis. VICTORIA BECKHAM It’s hard to believe the singer-turned-designer is 44 this year! Posh Spice has come a long way since giving birth to her first child, Brooklyn, in 1998. JADA PINKETT SMITH The actress shows how graceful ageing is done, as daughter Willow Smith blossoms into a young woman of her…

bridal figures

10 When dressmakers set out to create Grace Kelly’s iconic dress for her wedding to Prince Rainier III of Monaco, they broke it down into 10 parts, including lace bodices, an accompanying slip, an under bodice, foundation pieces, two petticoats, a silk skirt, a train insert and a cummerbund. Her dress was created by costume designers at MGM, the same company she worked with on films such as High Society and Mogambo. 4.5 When Norman Hartnell was designing the wedding dress then-Princess Elizabeth II wore for her wedding to Prince Phillip of Greece, he looked to a Botticelli painting for inspiration on the 4.5-m train. Reportedly, the designer also opted to use Chinese silk as opposed to Japanese or Italian silk, so as to avoid lingering sensitivities from World War II that had…

modern-day princess

On a snowy Monday morning in London last November, the heartwarming news that royal watchers had long been waiting for finally arrived. “His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales is delighted to announce the engagement of Prince Harry to Ms Meghan Markle.” After a 16-month, long-distance courtship that started with a blind date set up by a mutual friend (believed to be fashion PR Violet von Westenholz), the US actress was confirmed as the next royal bride. The two were reportedly smitten after that one date, arranging to see each other the next day. A few weeks later, they carved out five days for a romantic trip to Botswana, where they camped out under the stars. The couple then flew back and forth between London and Toronto, where Meghan filmed the legal…
