This year’s BAFTA dress code called for sustainable fashion, and the ever thrifty Duchess of Cambridge showed up just about everyone. Kate (38) dazzled in a white and gold Alexander McQueen gown she had worn during an official visit to Malaysia in 2012. BAFTA organisers had sent out a list of guidelines on how attendees could minimise their carbon footprint, and did their bit by serving a plant-based menu, however many people appeared not to have read the memo and came dressed to the nines in frocks from their favourite designers. There were some concessions though. Olivia Colman (46) had laboratory-grown Swarovski crystals on her gown, Saoirse Ronan (25) chose a Gucci dress made from discarded satin fabric and Joaquin Phoenix (45) wore the same tux he’s worn to every awards event…

from the editor

There’s nothing quite like the feeling of having a holiday on the horizon to look forward to. That sweet anticipation can almost be as enjoyable as the event itself. I’m forever trying to live vicariously through other people’s travels, and sometimes - potentially quite strangely - I’ll find myself planning an imaginary holiday I’ll likely never take. Although, all that dreaming has had its advantages. The majority of flights I’ve bought over the years have been sudden sales or last-minute deals going for a song - so I’ve moved swiftly because I can quickly put together a plan. Half price flights to Los Angeles? Excellent, I already have five different road trips to choose fr om. Samoa for less than a taxi fare to the airport? No worries, I already know the…

charles, prince of change the making of his monarchy

Prince Charles has always been a forward thinker, working out his points of view and desired outcomes and then sticking to them, regardless of what his family, critics or the public say. “He looks at everything in terms of years and decades,” says an aide. “He always has. Once he’s made his mind up on something, he’s immovable. He says, ‘They’ll come round, they’ll agree with me one day.’ “By and large, that’s true – most opponents eventually support him.” Or as Charles (71) himself puts it, “I’ve gone on regardless of the endless criticism and carping and shouting and screaming, because I’ve always believed in the long term.” No matter if it’s ecology, climate change, organic farming, architecture, the structure of the economy or the future of the royal family, the Prince of…

spotlight on sophie!

While the limelight has been firmly fixed on Charles and his children, another royal who beavers away with little fanfare is finally starting to get recognition for her hard work. Sophie, Countess of Wessex has been featuring prominently on the royal family’s Twitter page of late, with many posts dedicated to official engagements she carries out. Some speculate that the extra attention suggests she may be taking on a larger role in The Firm following the departure of Meghan, Duchess of Sussex. “Sophie has stayed in the background while everyone has focused on Kate and Meghan,” says a royal source. “But now it feels like the palace is trying to build her profile by promoting what she does in greater depth. And one of her most recent engagements had a very Meghan…

a man of the people

Equally at home in the smoko room as he was in the boardroom or on the world stage, Mike Moore, who died last week aged 71, is being remembered as a passionate politician with a generous heart who would go in to bat for everyday people. Born in Whakatane in 1949, Mike left school at 14, working as a labourer and a printer. He joined the Labour Party at 16 and became New Zealand’s youngest Member of Parliament when, at the age of just 23, he was elected MP for Mt Eden in 1972. Three years later he married Yvonne Dereany, a teacher and children’s TV presenter who he often acknowledged made him not only a better person but a better politician and leader. In 1978, Mike moved to Christchurch and was elected…

tributes from across aotearoa

“Mike was passionate about our country and ensuring its place in the modern world… The world lost a man with a huge intellect and huge heart today. E te rangatira, moe mai, moe mai, moe mai ra.” – PM Jacinda Ardern “Mike will be very sorely missed by everyone who knew him. He was a warm, passionate, funny, mischievous man.” – Deputy PM Winston Peters “Farewell Mike Moore, a great fighter for Kiwis who needed a hand up, and a staunch advocate for free trade.” – Opposition Leader Simon Bridges “Mike was a passionate New Zealander and spent his life serving NZ and its values.” – Former PM Helen Clark “The thing that distinguished him from that time was his enthusiasm and compassion in whatever he was doing. You don’t have to agree with anything he said, but you…
