pleased to met you!

After being cancelled last year and delayed from its usual first Monday in May date this year due to Covid, the annual Met Gala finally made its triumphant return.

Among the star-studded guest list was a small Kiwi contingent, including Lorde, 24, who is the October cover girl for the party’s host, Vogue, and Taika Waititi, 46, walking the carpet with his new girlfriend Rita Ora, 30.

They walked away from the royal family 18 months ago, confident that they could start a successful new life in the United States. But after rocking the royals on several occasions during that time – including alleging that one relative made racist comments – Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex are now desperate to try to mend fences because they realise just how much they need their royal connection with his family. The couple, who live in California, has requested a meeting with the Queen, and also asked that they can use Winsdor Castle as the venue for the christening of their three-month-old daughter Lilibet Diana. There’s been no answer yet and many members of the Queen’s staff have been flabbergasted by the approach, especially as the Sussexes have made life diffi…

It seems that third time’s a charm for Kate Hudson, who announced her engagement to longtime beau Danny Fujikawa last week. Though they have only been a couple for five years, the pair have known each other for almost two decades, as Danny is the stepbrother of Kate’s best friends Erin, 39, and Sara Foster, 40. “I’ve known his family forever.

You skip the part of going, ‘Oh, you’re like that?’” Erin and Sara were delighted at the news, with Erin exclaiming, “Finally we are offi cially sisters!” While Danny, 35, likes to keep out of the spotlight, Kate is not shy about sharing praise for the musician, with whom she shares…
