beauty in strength

When we started organising our annual Most Beautiful People issue back in December, the world was a very different place. COVID-19 didn’t have a name yet, we could hug each other freely and our team were busy organising some of the stunning photo shoots you’ll see on these pages before social distancing practices came into place. But the message we wanted to convey this year remains the same: that true beauty, however clichéd it may sound, comes from within – a loving heart, a beautiful mind and an inner strength. There is no greater example of that than the inspirational ladies in our Warrior Women series – including Delta Goodrem, Camilla Franks, Sally Obermeder, Kylie Minogue and Olivia Newton-John – iconic Australian women who have all battled cancer and share their…

meghan’s next move

Officially stepping back as members of the royal family this week, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry jumped head-first into their new normal. The pair and 10-month-old son Archie have left the borrowed $23 million waterfront mansion on Vancouver Island that they’d been holed up in since November, fleeing Canada via private plane before the borders closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “Flights were stopping,” a source told UK’s The Sun. “They had to get out.” Now they’ve settled into Meghan’s hometown of Los Angeles where they’ve been living in a secluded compound and haven’t ventured out. “Meghan knows the area very well and it puts her close to her team of PRs, business advisers and Hollywood agents,” the source says. Another royal insider told the Daily Mail that this is the Hollywood…

surviving isolation

The despairing expression on Sam Smith’s face is one many can relate to right now as the stress of the COVID-19 crisis proves hard to bear. Smith captioned the Instagram pic: “Stages of quarantine meltdown”, and looked to be in tears, leading hundreds of followers to reassure and support the singer. Miley Cyrus admitted she, too, was finding it hard. “What would we give right now for it to be safe to open the door for somebody, but right now when we open the door, we think, ‘Oh, where’s my glove, let me get my hoodie … I’m not allowed to look at you, get six feet away from me,’” she said. “And so I miss that human connection. I miss opening the door for somewhere and having the door open…

mafs: what you won’t see on tv reunion bombshells

This season of Married At First Sight has been up there in the drama stakes, but it seems the real fireworks went off behind the scenes – and proved far too scandalous for TV audiences. According to a well-placed insider, filming for the reunion episode became quite the spectacle for producers, who had to deal with catfights between the brides, stars refusing to show up and even allegations that some of the cast members were using drugs. As a couple, Michael Goonan and Stacey Hampton have been on a roller-coaster since the very beginning, with their many ups and downs including the Adelaide businessman’s excessive partying and his cheating scandal with another bride, Hayley Vernon. But the source tells WHO that the relationship came to an explosive end just before the…

hollywood helps out

The COVID-19 pandemic has thrown the world into a state of uncertainty, but in this global time of need, a handful of celebrities are coming together to support communities in any way they can. While a flow of donations came in from stars including Ben Affleck, who gave to the charity Feeding America, and Justin Timberlake, who donated to Tennessee’s Mid-South Food Bank, other A-listers are thinking outside the box to help those struggling with job losses and financial fears. The Good Place actress Kristen Bell and hubby Dax Shepard have thrown their tenants a lifeline, waiving rent at two of their LA properties for a month. Meanwhile, Josh Gad – who many children will recognise as the voice of Frozen’s Olaf – has offered to relieve parents trying to work…
