welcome

From lockdown here in Sydney, I absolutely loved seeing fans at Wimbledon and a full Wembley Stadium for the European Football Championship. It gave me a great sense of hope that it won’t be long until we’re back enjoying life as we knew it before the pandemic. I was on the edge of my seat watching Ash Barty’s epic win last weekend and I couldn’t help but be overwhelmed with immense pride. For more on the Aussie tennis hero’s amazing achievement, turn to page 10. And how great is it to see the return of the red carpet? If you’ve also been craving some A-list style of late, our Cannes coverage should do the trick! I’m still stunned by Bella Hadid’s risqué choice of outfit (go to page 6 for all the…

glamour in cannes

After taking the year off in 2020, thanks to the global pandemic, the Cannes Film Festival was back with a bang for its 74th annual event. Stars from around the world descended on the French Riviera, eager to celebrate this year’s film line-up with all the glitz and glamour that has been sorely missed since events went primarily virtual in early 2020. And boy did they bring it! Having almost a year of red carpets cancelled, designers appeared excited to pull out all the stops to make Cannes one to remember – with show-stopping looks from Diane Kruger and Bella Hadid. “I am once again honoured to share a room with some of the most genius beings on the planet,” model Hadid, 24, gushed of her return to the festival.…

ash barty a dream comes true

The stands were peppered with A-listers and royalty, but all eyes were on Australian tennis superstar Ashleigh Barty when she won the 2021 Wimbledon ladies’ singles title, defeating Czech Republic’s Karolina Pliskova 6-3, 6-7, 6-3. Even though Barty, 25, had entered the tournament ranked as the world number one, those closest to her were anxious about her chances due to an aggravated hip injury that forced her to withdraw from the French Open just weeks prior. “Being able to play here at Wimbledon was nothing short of a miracle,” Barty revealed in her post-match press conference. “It’s funny, sometimes the stars align, you can think positively, you can plan, and sometimes the stars do align.” “You’re inspiring the next generation”- MIDDLETON Barty’s momentous victory follows in the footsteps of fellow Indigenous Australian Evonne Goolagong…

adele's undercover romance

They’ve had fans playing a game of “Are they? Aren’t they?” for the better part of a year, but Adele and beau Skepta appeared to confirm they are still very much together after being spotted on a shopping date in California. The pair were recently sprung at discount mall Cabazon Outlets, just outside of San Bernardino. Despite being worth over $254 million, the singer, 33, reportedly browsed the discount Prada designer store at the outlet alongside the British rapper, 38 – with an onlooker revealing the pair definitely looked like an item. “She was sitting watching him while he was picking sweaters, pants, trying on jackets and coats and having the employees help him,” a spy told Page Six of the pair’s shopping trip. “She was giving him feedback and saying…

it’s love

Another Hollywood couple that have kept things on the down low and recently come out of their love bubble are Rihanna and ASAP Rocky, who were spotted looking very smitten in New York City on July 10. The pair were photographed filming each other on the streets, holding hands and sharing a sweet embrace for the unnamed project. While they’ve been friends for years, things started heating up between them after the singer’s split from billionaire Hassan Jameel in January 2020. In December, Rihanna, 33, and the rapper, 32, were spotted kissing while in Barbados for Christmas.“They have always had amazing chemistry and Rihanna relates to ASAP and it feels natural, easy and fun,”a source told Entertainment Tonight at the time. In May, the rapper confirmed the romance in an interview with…
