editor’s letter

You don’t need me to tell you that diabetes is a serious issue amongst Singaporeans – and it worries me (and obviously our Prime Minister who’s called it a “health crisis”) that our rates are second only to the US. We know most women tend to focus on caring for others before themselves, so, we took it as our responsibility to take care of you with this month’s health focus on diabetes. What causes it, what are the symptoms, how can you prevent it, and if you do have it, how do you live with it... turn to page 94 to be fully informed now. And eating healthily, to help you and the family fend off the disease, doesn’t mean having to settle for bland, boring food. We’ve got delicious,…

screen queens

WINONA RYDER Winona’s performance as frayed, tenacious mum to a missing son in Stranger Things marked a major comeback for the ’90s screen queen – and she doesn’t look like she’s planning to go anywhere soon. PRIYANKA CHOPRA The former Miss World winner got her start making major Bollywood blockbusters in her native India, but really started flexing her acting chops when she signed on to play an FBI agent on Quantico. THANDIE NEWTON The British actress took a risk when she agreed to star in HBO’s ambitious sci-fi series Westworld. The move paid off handsomely for Thandie, who was Emmy-nominated for her powerful role on the show. DREW BARRYMORE Her kooky-yet-adorable brand of comedy has made Dr ew a steady box-office draw. The Charlie’s Angels actress is hoping to replicate that success b y making a…

Angela Chan Digital Imaging Artist Name three of your all-time favourite television shows? • Criminal Minds (Korea) • Goblin • CSI: Miami If you had to switch lives with a TV character, who would it be and why? “I choose Yoo Min-young from the Korean version of Criminal Minds.

cool cate

Cate Blanchett is feisty, witty, sharp-tongued and lively. Wearing her blonde hair relatively short to neck level, and looking elegant in a black-and-white chequered suit, she was lapping up all the adoring fan attention at the recent Comic Con convention in San Diego where she was promoting Thor: Ragnarok. One of the finest actresses of her generation, Cate has exhausted practically every film genre. Her acting repertoire includes serious dramas (Carol, Elizabeth: The Golden Age, The Talented Mr. Ripley), fantasy films (Cinderella, The Lord of the Rings), and comedies (Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine, for which she won an Oscar). But as her eldest son Dashiell pointed out to her, she’s never appeared in a Hollywood superhero blockbuster. Until now. With the upcoming release of Thor: Ragnarok, directed by Taika Waititi, Cate is…

STAYING GORGEOUS We learn the secrets behind Cate’s flawless, glowing complexion • GET PLENTY OF SLEEP “Anything you can do to remove stress will give you a better glow,” says Cate. “Sleep is the secret to that lit-from-within glow – although I’m a bit deprived of that now.” • INVEST IN GOOD SKINCARE Before she became the ambassador of SK-II, she had already been using their products after having her first son. She’s especially fond of the brand’s Facial Treatment Essence and Mid-Day Essence, which was inspired by Cate herself. In response to doubts, she says, “I understand that cynicism, but if I’m honest, it’s been a very organic relationship, because the brand was only interested in talking to me because they knew I already used it.” • EXFOLIATE RELIGIOUSLY Cate believes men in their 40s look great…
