making her mark

“MY COMING OF AGE HAPPENED WHEN I MOVED TO LA” It’s not every day Pharrell Williams convinces you to drop everything to become a model. Yet that’s exactly what happened to Jodie Turner-Smith when she met the Happy singer through a mutual friend! After taking his advice, it’s been a slow and steady rise for the 33-year-old former banker, who also quickly turned to acting and is now wowing audiences as leading lady in crime drama Queen & Slim, directed by Melina Matsoukas (the woman behind Beyoncé’s Formation video). And it isn’t just the critically acclaimed new role that has people talking. Turning heads as she arrived at the 2020 BAFTAs in London on the arm of her husband, Dawson’s Creek star Joshua Jackson, 41, the pregnant star exuded glamour in a flowing, sequinned…

courteney cox’s chic modernist

This is a house I’ll never move from. It really is so special to me,’ Courteney Cox declares of her 8000-square-foot Malibu property. Upon purchasing the estate in 2007, the actress, 55, enlisted the help of her design team to completely remodel the space, transforming it from a ‘rustic house’ into a modernist retreat – a process that took two years! Courteney shares the pad with daughter Coco, 15 (whose dad is Court’s ex David Arquette), and fiancé Johnny McDaid, 43, who splits his time between the States and the UK. And on the weekends, she has a full house. ‘I have people over every Sunday. I’ve done that for the last 20 years,’ she shares, adding that her guests typically gather on the massive patio. Indoors, Courteney has a…

liam & miley busted in byron!

She was meant to be Down Under to headline the World Tour Bushfire Relief charity concert, but sadly had to postpone due to the global health crisis. The news was devastating to Miley, who was hoping to also secretly make a trip to Byron to buy her dream getaway pad – and reunite with her ex-hubby, Liam Hemsworth. But she’s not letting the setback derail her plans. ‘She didn’t want to risk the health of her band and crew,’ explains an insider. ‘I wouldn’t put it past her to jet in as soon as she can though.’ The 27-year-old is contemplating a move back to her happy place in Byron Bay and whispers are rife that Miley’s already looking for a property in the seaside location. But the news isn’t exactly going to…

francesca hung ‘i’d put so much pressure on myself’

From the beaches of Sydney to the red carpets of Hollywood, the last two years have been a whirlwind for former Miss Universe Australia Francesca Hung. But when she’s not busy hobnobbing with international A-listers as the new host for E! Australia, the Cremorne-based beauty prefers to spend her downtime relaxing with family and friends. Here, Francesca, 25, shares her down-to-earth approach to living her best life… What are your fave go-to exercises? I grew up doing ballet, jazz, tap – you name it. So one of my favourite things to do is chuck on some ’80s daggy music, and I’ve got a little room downstairs in my house where I put on my own aerobics dance classes [laughs]. I did that this morning, actually, I think I pulled a muscle, but that’s…
