meghan & harry leading the way

“Holding hands at a royal engagement is a refreshingly modern approach”—Myka Meier Just four days after they confirmed their engagement, Prince Harry and a beaming Meghan Markle stepped out together on an official engagement of a different kind. To mark World AIDS Day on Dec. 1, the pair attended commemorative events in Nottingham, where hundreds of well-wishers lined the streets to cheer on the popular prince and his American fiancée, who looked regal in an ankle-length navy coat by Mackage over a black turtleneck and taupe skirt. “Hi, I’m Meghan,” said the actress, accepting bouquets and shaking hands with members of the public who’d been waiting since dawn behind barricades. During their visit, the pair met survivors who shared stories of living with HIV. “She was incredibly observant about what we were…

doing it their way

HATS AND TAILS William and Kate fuelled talk of an engagement announcement when they arrived together for a friend’s wedding in late October 2010. The official news followed on Nov. 16.

fashion frolics

THE BRITISH FASHION COUNCIL'S FASHION Awards, held at London’s Royal Albert Hall, offered A-listers a grand, but tricky, entrance up a flight of red-carpeted stairs—a cinch for models like Karlie Kloss (“When the carpet matches the dress!” she posted in her Vivienne Westwood gown), Kaia Gerber and model of the year winner, Adwoa Aboah. Donatella Versace, who was honoured with a fashion-icon award, wore a Versace dress strikingly similar to one worn by FKA Twigs, who teamed hers with a leather jacket. Stella McCartney scored special recognition for innovation, for her stance against using animal products, such as leather, in her luxury label. “The fashion industry is the second most harmful industry to the environment,” she told Vogue. “I think every business has to become more responsible.” CLOTHES ENCOUNTER To be named a…

rocked by scandal

AS THE GLITTERATI OF AUSTRALIA’S film and television industry were set to gather at Sydney’s Star Event Centre on Dec. 6 to recognise the stand-out performances of the past 12 months at the annual Australian Academy Cinema Television Arts awards night, there was one notable absence. One of the nation’s most successful actors, Oscar–winning Geoffrey Rush, was sitting it out, having days earlier resigned as president of AACTA in the wake of a complaint of “inappropriate behaviour” made against him to the Sydney Theatre Company. “The decision has not been made lightly,” Rush, who vehemently denied any inappropriate behaviour, said through his lawyer, Nicholas Pullen. “However in the current climate of innuendo and unjustifiable reporting, I believe the decision to make a clean break to clear the air is best…

his downfall

Each time Matt Lauer renewed his lucrative contract at the US Today show in the past five years, he considered leaving to spend more time with his family, a former colleague tells WHO:“All he wanted to do is be with his kids and golf.” But less than a year since signing his latest agreement with NBC, worth a reported $US20 million, Lauer is now out of options. On Nov. 27 a woman came forward to NBC brass with allegations of inappropriate sexual behaviour by Lauer over the course of 2014 including at the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. The next day, the network’s biggest star, 59, was fired. “He never wanted to go out like this,” says the source. With the news came a flood of reports of alleged inappropriate behaviour…
