The Australian Open has to be the most fashionable courtside event of the calendar. This year Anna Wintour flew Down Under as a guest of Tennis Australia to watch her long-time friend Roger Federer play in the Grand Slam tournament. The Vogue editor stepped out in a bold Prada frock, ditching her trademark sunglasses. Unfortunately, Federer lost to Greek sensation Stefanos Tsitsipas, but he was all smiles at lunch with Wintour the next day at Bistro Guillaume, where they were joined by Roger’s wife, Mirka. Aussie celebrities Anna Heinrich, Sylvia Jeffreys, George Calombaris, Matty J and mum-to-be Laura Byrne were all seen enjoying matches, alongside Prime Minister Scott Morrison and tennis royalty Lleyton Hewitt who, despite his very public bust-up with Bernard Tomic (read more on p. 12), appeared to…

‘we’re so happy!’

THEY FIRST SPARKED DATING rumours in November last year, when it was reported that Brad Pitt and Charlize Theron had been going on secret rendezvous for almost a year. “They meet up at luxury hotel suites around the world – London, Paris, even Beverly Hills – for dates ... It’s given them time to get to know each other away from the spotlight,” an insider told Star magazine. At the time, the pair were reportedly trying to keep their romance under wraps because Pitt, 55, allegedly feared his estranged wife, Angelina Jolie, might use it in court in a bid to win their custody battle. The source added, “He’s been trying to keep it quiet for as long as possible. It’s not easy, though – he’s smitten and wants the world…

prince philip’s close call

PRINCE PHILIP, 97, HAD JUST pulled out of a driveway near the Sandringham home he shares with the Queen in Norfolk when he was involved in a car accident on Jan. 18. Retired lawyer Roy Warne, who helped free the Duke of Edinburgh from his Land Rover after it overturned, described the crash to BBC Radio 4’s Today: “I saw it careering, tumbling across the road and ending up on the other side,” he said. “He was obviously shaken, and then he went and asked if everyone else was alright.” Warne then said he overheard the Duke telling police he had been “dazzled by the sun.” Philip was able to stand after he was helped from the vehicle. “There was a little bit of blood and one of the royal entourage…

heartbreak in melbourne

MOMENTS BEFORE HER LIFE was brutally cut short on Jan. 16, Palestinian exchange student Aiia Maasarwe was chatting happily on FaceTime to her sister Ruba. The two were discussing the Melbourne comedy show Aiia had gone to that evening before heading home on the tram. What happened next has shocked Australia, and shattered the lives of Aiia’s family members. Tragically, just minutes from home, Aiia was fatally attacked, with police saying the details were too horrendous to share with her family. Hours later, Aiia’s semi-naked body was found at Polaris shopping centre in the north Melbourne suburb of Bundoora. On Jan. 19, aspiring rapper Codey Herrmann, 20, was charged with her rape and murder. He appeared in the Melbourne Magistrate’s Court and was remanded in custody. From Israel, Ruba has revealed that…

lleyton fires back

MOST AUSTRALIANS simply want to sit back and enjoy the high competitive standard of tennis that the Australian Open brings. But for some – even the athletes themselves – they can’t distract from the drama. On Jan. 14, Australian Open competitor Bernard Tomic, 26, made a public swipe at former world No. 1 and fellow competitor Lleyton Hewitt, during a press conference after losing to Marin Cilic on the first day of the tournament, revealing he wouldn’t be returning to the Davis Cup court under Hewitt’s guidance. “I have got to say honestly no-one likes him anymore, he is doing the wrong thing, he is playing Davis Cup,” Tomic told reporters. “I thought he was retired, he is playing all these matches.” After claiming Hewitt, 37, “used to hate Tennis Australia, it’s weird…
