why her?

This is a question we’re often asked, a question we’re a little tired of answering, but a question that must be answered nonetheless. So, here it goes... Since the Hot 100 debuted in 2008—that’s 120 months, if you’re mathematically-inclined or if you’re keeping score—only six ladies have ever topped it: Bipasha Basu Singh Grover (2009), Deepika Padukone (2008 and 2017), Kareena Kapoor Khan (2012), Katrina Kaif (2014), Priyanka Chopra (2011, 2013, 2016 and now 2018) and Sonam Kapoor Ahuja (2010). The list has seen at least 2,300 women grace it, but the above have almost always retained top-of-mind connect. But there are a few notable names that came very close: Jacqueline Fernandez, Sonakshi Sinha, Amy Jackson, Sunny Leone and Disha Patani. In the days before the ‘gram’ and the ‘book’, people wrote…

an ode to cannes

For about ten days in the middle of May, the sun revolves around the Earth. Or so it would seem at the Cannes Film Festival, the centre of the universe for lovers of cinema. Situated on the French Riviera, Cannes is a place where the air feels charged with luminescence and stars like Deepika Padukone, Sonam Kapoor, Charlize Theron, Cate Blanchett, Ryan Gosling and Idris Elba posing for paparazzi steps from the Mediterranean, glow like celestial beings. Cannes also benefits from impeccable timing. With many of the attendees just emerging from long, cold winters, the festival pumps with an undeniable sense of spring awakening. “Everything about the future of film starts in Cannes,” says marketing guru, Ryan Werner of Cinematic Marketing. “It sets precedent and it makes history. You have top-of-their-craft…

the bountiful game

Group A EGYPT RUSSIA SAUDI ARABIA URUGUAY URUGUAY Coach: Óscar Tabárez Edinson Cavani and Luis Suárez. These are the two players capable of winning games single-handedly for their teams, and Tabárez will hope his two strikers are firing on all cylinders. In defence, the team have the advantage of their two centre backs being club teammates at Atleticó Madrid, which will provide much-needed organisation. The midfield remains a concern and there are times when the team doesn’t play with as much intensity as they should. Still, they can cause an upset or two along the way. Group B IRAN MOROCCO PORTUGAL SPAIN PORTUGAL Coach: Fernando Santos At Euro 2016, Portugal were not favourites, but their character, organisation and mental strength saw them crowned champions. Captain Cristiano Ronaldo knows it’s probably his last chance to win the biggest prize in football and he has a team…

the tastemakers

CRISTIANO RONALDO Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, two talismanic players who have dominated world football for almost 10 years. But since his move from Manchester United in 2009, Ronaldo has lit up La Liga and scored three Champions League crowns on the trot. When it comes to Portugal, Ronaldo’s team banks on him for motivation. And the skipper hardly ever disappoints. During the World Cup qualifiers, Portugal finished on top of Group B, with Ronaldo scoring 15 goals. At 33, Ronaldo may be playing his last World Cup and if he leads them to glory in Russia, it would perhaps end all debate on who is the greatest of them all. HIRVING LOZANO Even before the riches of Europe came calling, Hirving Lozano had made his debut and opened his account for Mexico.…

the ultimate bottle

Hidden among the estimated 100 million bottles stashed away in Moët & Chandon’s sprawling subterranean wine cellars is a champagne like no other, the hard-earned result of a project two decades in the making. It’s what chef de cave Benoît Gouez refers to as his ‘state of the art’ blend—MCIII. He calls the release the ultimate expression of Moët’s range, incorporating a complicated mix of components representing three forms of champagne maturation: Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from 2003, aged in stainless steel; Moët’s showcase 1998, 2000, and 2002 Grand Vintages, partially matured in large oak casks; and last but perhaps most exciting, Moët’s 1993, 1998, and 1999 Grand Vintages, matured in bottle and then finally disgorged before incorporation. “It’s not just a champagne; it’s a wine from champagne,” Gouez says, referring to its…

bring home some hawaii

Contrary to popular belief, adding pineapple to a dish doesn’t make it Hawaiian. Fresh flavours, local traditions, and culinary innovation are the forces driving the blossoming Hawaiian food scene today. And some of the best of it can be found on Oahu, where the state’s most ambitious chefs set up shops to showcase what they can do. Local cuisine here is all about farm-to-table—or in Oahu’s case, line-to-table. Tuna is the main fish of Hawaiian cuisine, and ahi the most popular. At Fish House, the seafood-focused beachfront restaurant at the Four Seasons O’ahu at Ko Olina, chefs work directly with island fishermen and farmers along the Waianae coast to source quality ingredients mere miles from the resort. Chef Ray German, a 15-year Four Seasons’ vet, serves up ahi poke bowls, elaborate…
