TIME IS THE ESSENCE WE ARE MADE OF


It’s that difficult time of the year, isn’t it? When it feels like it’s been cold for quite some time, yet winter persists. The novelty of coats and scarves has all but worn off, but it’s far too early to unpack your sundresses and start planning for spring. So, this issue, we’re here to liberate you from your weather-related rut. Step one: buy a white shirt. While that may not necessarily sound groundbreaking, trust me—it’s the number-one piece to own right now, and couldn’t be easier to pull off. Turn to p37 for the latest shapes, and how to style them for maximum impact. Step two: experiment with some cheery prints to brighten the day. In our “Mild or Wild” fashion feature (p45), we show you how to update your staples with the latest graphic designs. All you need to do is choose whether to try a hint of the trend or go all-out (and honestly, why wouldn’t you?). Step three: ward off a winter pallor by giving your complexion a little TLC. The right skincare (p105) and diet (p108) can do wonders for the way you look and feel, especially now when you might be guilty of spending too much time indoors with the heater on! Stay warm and chic.

&Cõ (PCô ELLE FANNING in GUCCI At just 18, the actress is already flexing her fashion muscles, as the dreamy gown she wore to the New York premiere of her new film, Neon Demon, demonstrates. It’s elegant yet whimsical, with tumbling ruffles splashed in a hue that’s entirely of the moment. Barely there make-up provides the perfect foil for this ultra-feminine look. Teamed with simple braids, the result is fresh and modern

HER 10 BEST EVER!

%LL?/CLBñÚ “Anna really likes to mix it up right now,” says Kendrick’s stylist, Cristina Ehrlich. “The silhouette of this Altuzarra look has a cool flapper-girl vibe that we love, and the layers of paillettes make it eye-catching.” (2016)

Kendrick chose a fitting look for a day in Cannes, on the French Riviera, which included boating on the Mediterranean and a duet with her Trolls co-star Justin Timberlake. Her cap-sleeve Marc Jacobs dress with an M2Malletier top-handle bag and Soebedar heels epitomised nautical chic. (2016)

The peekaboo panels and openback design on this KaufmanFranco creation amazed the actress. “My dress defied the laws of physics,” she said on Instagram. “@kaufmanfranco you are using some kind of black magic.” (2014)

Shortly after she turned heads on the Oscars red carpet in this curve-hugging Atelier Versace gown, Kendrick ’grammed a photo of herself indulging in a burger at one of the after-parties. (2014)

“This look will stand the test of time,” says Ehrlich of this Victoria Beckham dress and clutch and shoes by Christian Louboutin. “It doesn’t have any bells or whistles, but it’s a beautifully made garment in a beautiful colour.” (2014)


ØC0íI “It looked like she was floating down the red carpet,” says Monique Lhuillier of Kendrick, who wore the designer’s tulle ball gown with Fred Leighton ruby earrings to the Golden Globes. “I didn’t want to take this one off,” Kendrick, 30, later said. (2015)

“The Pitch Perfect 2 premiere was a wow moment for Anna,” notes her stylist. “This Stella McCartney gown is elegant in its simplicity. And even though it has a cut-out, it doesn’t look like one of those trendy dresses.” (2015)

For the Grammys, the star wanted to wear something that was sexy in an unconventional way. “We tried on a ton of suits in both black and white before we found this Band of Outsiders one,” says Ehrlich. “It takes a village,” Instagrammed Kendrick as she got ready. (2015)

1 “The embroidery was inspired by maharajah embellishment, but interpreted in a graphic, new way,” says designer Narciso Rodriguez of the dress the actress paired with Stuart Weitzman sandals. “Anna looked effortlessly cool.” (2015)

OUR PICK Before she took the Oscars stage as her Into the Woods character, Cinderella, Kendrick had a fairytale experience of her own in a custom Thakoon gown featuring a Norman Silverman Diamonds collar worth more than $750,000. “It is classic Hollywood glamour, but the colour makes it fresh and youthful,” says Thakoon Panichgul.

Layer over anything you’d normally dismiss as too “out there”. Sporty stripes and a pink midi skirt? Suddenly a well-calculated risk.

Multi-directional lines come together in an outfit that has undeniable edge. There’s no overdoing the attitude here: opt for a biker jacket in an unexpected shade of green, oversized shades, and pants that lengthen your silhouette. Flatform brogues are bang on-trend and blissfully comfortable when you’re on-the-go.

Asher Keddie has been up all night. Not, she hastens to add, at the celebration for her artist husband Vincent Fantauzzo’s exhibition opening that was held the evening before, as she once would have been. Times have changed: instead of partying, Keddie has been pacifying her baby boy, Valentino, in the hotel room above where she now sits, bare-faced but pulled together in a Helmut Lang blazer and skinny jeans, her blonde hair back in a low bun. “I am changed,” the 41-year-old happily admits, her green eyes becoming misty. I am seven-and-a-half months pregnant at the time of our interview and Keddie shares some motherly insight with me. “Everything changes, and you can’t have a conversation like this without wanting to cry. I can’t explain it to you, but you’ll know and you’ll remember me saying this to you and looking like a stupid vulnerable person sitting here with tears in my eyes because that’s what happens to you.” Just a couple of years ago, life looked quite different for Keddie. Five hugely successful seasons of Offspring had rendered the actress the sweetheart of Australian television, before it was announced in 2014 that the series would not be returning—and then she fell pregnant. Suddenly, after working non-stop since 2010, Keddie found herself in a very different role: stay-at-home motherhood. “Two years is quite a long time off, although you become really tired for another reason and it’s worth it,” she says, that familiar wry laugh ringing out. “I had time to listen to myself again and, in want of a less annoying term, I had time to sit with myself. I hadn’t sat still for a while, and I feel like that’s when you can be in the right mind frame to be really creative, feel galvanised again and refocus your purpose. I’ve done a lot of that.” It’s why, she says, she’s so looking forward to Offspring’s comeback—filming for season six is set to begin the week after our interview. “I think things will be different and I’m interested

to see how my performance will change as well. I mean, I might not be able to remember my lines anymore. I’ve had moments where I’m like, ‘S***, what if I can’t?’ You lose half your mind when you have a baby.” It has been two years since Keddie last played the loveable but slightly neurotic Nina Proudman, but she says she “hadn’t closed any doors” about coming back to the show. Now that reprising the role is very much a reality, Keddie says it’s “great” to once again inhabit the character that Australia fell in love with. “The show feels so good to make. It’s tricky, it’s challenging every day, which I find exciting, to work on something where you’re just not quite sure how it needs to land. I kept thinking to myself, ‘Why do we have to stop?’ If it’s a show that everyone loves, we love making it, there’s certainly no lack of creative juice. These are [characters] just midway through their journey in life, and some at the beginning of their life. [Is it] better to go out while we’re still really killing it? I liked the idea of pushing past that. I find that challenge more exciting than quitting while you’re ahead,” she says. This time around, though, she’ll have a particularly important co-worker. “I wasn’t ready to separate myself from my 13 month old, so he’s going to come to work but spend some time at home, too. I’m armed with help because I have to be, and I’m hoping that I won’t fall too short in all areas,” she says. Keddie was given an introduction to parenting when she met Fantauzzo and his son, Luca, in 2012. She says that she fell in love with both of them at the same time and soon realised she needed to be either all-in or out. She threw herself into the role of stepmum and says while it felt natural, “it was a massive crash course in parenting”. From the way she speaks of him, Keddie is obviously besotted with her six-year-old stepson and calls him “a beautiful little boy”. In fact, judging by the way she lovingly discusses both boys, there’s no doubt that motherhood agrees with her. Now Valli, as she calls her baby, has just turned one, Keddie feels like she has a little more perspective on parenthood. “I didn’t know what they were talking about when they said [having a baby] is a milestone, but you really feel that. It’s a massive year, that first year. It’s full of challenges and it’s a rollercoaster, emotionally and physically, and there’s no point in lying about that because it is. It was challenging, but it was also the most full of love any time has ever felt for me…I wasn’t expecting it to give me so much purpose,” says Keddie. “It’s quite a selfish life as an actor. You’re thinking of yourself, you’re wanting to prove yourself all the time, you’re ambitious and that can make for quite a selfish lifestyle. I’m appreciating having my own family and children to take that attention off myself finally. That’s a really positive thing.”

The actor calls her family life with Fantauzzo “all consuming”, but one she wouldn’t change for anything (even the opportunity to indulge in one of her favourite pastimes, reading, which she says she sorely misses). While she admits she wanted to meet a partner who she “could walk shoulder-to-shoulder with”, it wasn’t a life Keddie had ever planned. She confesses to being wary of making plans, to avoid disappointment should things change, but is hugely grateful for this particular outcome. “I had hoped that I would meet someone like Vincent [and be in a relationship] where I could feel like I could have the courage to be myself. I don’t think I really knew or allowed myself to do that before I met him. There’s a lot of comfort in that. It makes for safety, and allows you to be creative and good in your work,” she explains. When it comes to the prospect of further additions to the family, Keddie insists that this, too, will be left in the hands of fate. “I like surprises and [Valentino] was a surprise. I don’t close doors very often so we’ll just see. I do have an Italian husband who loves children, but with work at the moment…I’m just so focused on jumping back into it and trying to enjoy both.” Her relationship with that Italian husband—who, she says, will encourage her to eat her daily indulgence, pasta, if he senses she has skipped a bowl (“I’ve realised it’s an addiction because if I don’t eat it I’m not quite right”)—continues to evolve. “You realise how much you’re in it together,” she says of having a child with Fantauzzo. And while their relationship is one of togetherness and making things work for their family, much like any couple, there are the usual challenges. “The dynamic shifted with me at home a lot, and there were times I didn’t handle that well. And then there were times where I really loved it and really embraced it and wanted to nurture and cook and go to the supermarket, and I hadn’t done that for years,” she explains. “There were times that it was hard and I didn’t know what to do with myself anymore because I’ve never experienced not working for such a long time. [Vincent and I] both like work. We’re very similar in that way, and we’re both ambitious and don’t apologise for it because we like that in each other and support it, but it’s been nice to focus on something different. And I think it will shift again when I start work next week.” As well as the long days of filming ahead, Keddie will have to reacquaint herself with the other side of being on a much-loved television show—being back in the spotlight and walking the red carpet once more. “I’m fine with all that stuff now. I do enjoy myself, I enjoy celebrating what we’re all doing and those nights are fun. It’s fun to catch up with people because we never see each other, [us] actor folk. We just set off and do our own thing. I’ve come to embrace them and I like the dress-ups. I love fashion,” she smiles.

When it comes to her personal style, Keddie admits it hasn’t changed much since becoming a mum of two. She still loves anything with a “slightly bohemian edge” and all things Isabel Marant. “I feel good in certain clothes and in a certain style. I like a simple French kind of shape,” she says. “It’s got to feel good and I don’t skimp on quality, so I always buy really nice but very simple things.” Simplicity, in general, is something that Keddie highly values— especially when dealing with the complex reality of being instantly recognisable. She concedes it was more “intense” when she wasn’t working, but that the attention is vastly different to that of the intrusive paparazzi. “It’s a different thing with the lovely people on the street and the people who watch you on television. It’s very rare that someone is strange towards me and it’s usually because they don’t know what to do and then I feel awkward and probably act like a geek, then it all goes pear-shaped! But that’s really rare. For the most part, everyone’s really warm towards me.” Keddie seems the type who doesn’t mind taking the time to chat to a fan, but admittedly the attention sometimes doesn’t come at the most opportune times. “When you’re not actually having a great moment and you just want to put your head down and your sunglasses on, or you just need to buy nappies or go into the butcher and not have a conversation for 20 minutes because you have to pick up [a child] from school…those things might give me a little bit of anxiety,” she admits. “And when I’m taking time away from the kids if they’re with me, I don’t feel comfortable about that because I don’t think that’s fair to them —Mummy standing on the street and having photographs taken with people while they stand on the side and wait. I don’t like that. But at the same time, I feel really chuffed when someone likes what I’ve been doing and says so, so I want to give back.” And give back she will. The last few years have allowed Keddie the time to reflect on the next steps in her career. She says she “likes filmmaking, I love being on set” and has plans to get behind the camera, with several projects in the top-secret development stage. What she will say is that “I haven’t felt compelled to drive a story as much as I have these couple of stories that I’m working on.” Right now, though, she’s in mum mode, and as we wrap up our interview and she dashes back to her baby, it’s clear that’s exactly the way she wants it.

6MÚ7MJGB If Blake Lively can’t be your real-life big sister, having her play the role on-screen is a close second, says Sedona Legge, who shares a fictional family with the vivacious actress in the surfer drama The Shallows (in cinemas August 18). “I got to hang out with her all the time when she wasn’t filming,” says Legge. While Lively helped her navigate Hollywood, Legge, 17, was also getting schooled in eco-friendly fashion. “I just did my first runway show for Undress,” she notes proudly. “Every gown was made out of recycled materials.” Nibbling on home-made vegan chocolate-chip cookies in the Sydney town house she shares with her mum, Legge says her look is far more casual. Today she’s sporting the skinniest of skinny Abercrombie & Fitch jeans, an off-the-shoulder Free People top and black ankle boots from US department store T.J.Maxx. Named after a city in Arizona, Legge spent most of her life toggling between LA and Sydney (she speaks with a Californian accent, but switches effortlessly to an Aussie drawl on demand). Legge says living in the two countries helped become an actress. “To play a character, you have to adapt to new scenarios and experience a whole different way of looking at the world.” Though she seems like the quintessential cool girl, Legge insists she’s come into her own only in the past year. “Kids can be cruel, and I’ve always been insecure,” she says. “But it’s important to find your inner kindness without caring what others think. If you’re satisfied with yourself, you can do anything.” —ELIZABETH RENKERT Prada dress and hat. OPPOSITE: Calvin Klein Collection silk dress. Hat, stylist’s own. The Row leather loafers.

Celebrating Excellence We are driven to excellence ensuring the highest standards of quality and efficacy. The ‘BEEBIO Monaco Formula 1 Party’ was a special celebration for BEEBIO the brand, the products and the excellence for which we stand. Luxury, Quality & Performance. We were delighted to be joined for the evening by many friends and brand partners luxury car maker ASTON MARTIN and exceptional New Zealand designer KAY GOSS. Two wonderful brands committed to the same ethos as BEEBIO – Excellence.

Striving for perfection and surpassing the highest standards is challenging, but there is no greater satisfaction than producing New Zealand’s finest 100% natural luxury skin care range.

BEEBIO has a significant point of difference and we should celebrate it and shout about it! Life is a myriad of choices and the world of cosmetics is no different. You have to differentiate and separate what is genuine, what is not, and what is just a case of the ‘emperor’s new clothes’?

Everything we do and every product we create is about being genuinely the best. We use the best highest quality ingredients and manufacture in New Zealand to the highest world standards. We genuinely believe it is ‘the best beauty product to ever touch your skin’. BEEBIO Advanced Skincare was born from more than $20 Million in medical research, scientifically proving the remarkable healing benefits of Manuka Honey. The BEEBIO Manuka formulation in all products is the same as used in advanced wound care and surgical trauma units. Manuka Honey is highly sort after for its ability to stimulate new skin cell production. Our sister company Watson & Son are world leaders in production of Manuka surgical dressings and advanced wound care treatments. BEEBIO Advanced Skincare is spectacularly distinct when we get down to the essence of the product. We use nothing less than 16+ Medical Grade Manuka Honey and we only use the finest pure Bee Venom and pure Royal Jelly, all from our own hives. We also use powerful natural active botanicals and all our active ingredients come from New Zealand. Our formulas are proprietary, require higher volumes of active Manuka Honey and Bee Venom, and along with the other key pure actives, have proven independent scientific validation, part funded and supported by the New Zealand Ministry of Science & Innovation.

The event also marked the launch of a world first in volcanic deep cleansing mud masks. Specifically designed for modern city living, to remove pollutants collected on the skin and in skin pores. LAVA Rotorua White Mud Masque is another BEEBIO breakthrough and a perfect addition to the overall range offering a deep nurturing cleanse.

Put simply, BEEBIO Advanced Skincare is the real deal. A no compromise genuine luxury. Best in class by far!

SKIN AGEING IS INEVITABLE, BUT TREAT IT ZONE BY ZONE AND YOU’LL NOTICE A SMOOTHER, BRIGHTER, MORE YOUTHFUL COMPLEXION. HERE’S HOW TO BREAK IT DOWN by HAYLEY D’ONOFRIO photographed by TIM ROBINSON


The Zone: EYES The windows to your soul are also one of the first areas to show signs of ageing. The reason? It’s a “mobile” area, says Iola Ciavarra, national skincare trainer for Valeant Aesthetics. “Movement when you’re smiling, laughing, frowning and squinting all contribute to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. These factors, combined with sun exposure, can lead to the rapid ageing of the delicate skin around the eyes.”

THE TREATMENT “You can do a lot to restore a youthful appearance, just by focusing on this area,” says Ciavarra. This is where eye creams come in: look to those that go beyond hydration, and treat key concerns, from fine lines to wrinkles, dark circles and puffiness. Ciavarra suggests selecting products that contain anti-ageing ingredients such as zinc or copper (see right) designed specifically to manage the fragile skin around the eyes, and incorporating a tightening agent such as caffeine, because of its ability to reduce puffiness. The benefits of using targeted products are twofold—the smoother and firmer the skin tissue, the better the light bounces off this area, making creases and dark circles less noticeable, too.

FOR PROTECTION The lightweight gel texture calms the skin while an antioxidant complex shields the under-eye area from environmental pollution and skin stressors, such as lack of sleep and stress Philosophy Oxygenating Eye Gel Cream, $45; 1800 812 663

FOR BRIGHTENING With a combination of pure bee venom to tighten, active manuka honey to hydrate, and fruit extracts to brighten, this eye cream stimulates cell regeneration to banish fine lines and kick dark circles to the kerb BeeBio Nectar Eye Serum, $129; beebioskin.com

FOR PUFFINESS The rollerball applicator feels soothing and cooling on tired eyes. It contains copper-zinc malonate to boost skin elasticity and collagen production, plus caffeine to minimise puffiness and under-eye bags

FOR WRINKLES Featuring anti-ageing hero retinol, this super-light eye serum helps to increase the skin’s levels of hyaluronic acid to boost moisture, minimising the appearance of fine lines and crow’s-feet

It’s easy to pick a person’s age by looking at this area, says Natalie Abouchar, cosmetic nurse specialist and founder of Privée Clinic in Sydney’s Bondi Junction. “The majority of people spend time applying sunscreen and caring for the skin on their face, but neglect the neck and décolletage.” And, just like the eye area, this skin is extra delicate and prone to early signs of ageing, such as fine lines and pigmentation.

THE TREATMENT “Generally you can use your regular facial products in this area, but when it comes to exfoliation, less is more, says Ciavarra. Typically more sensitive than your face, it’s easily irritated, therefore abrasive scrubs should be avoided. For this reason, it’s also important to be wary of laser treatments and chemical peels. “The skin is thinner and the healing capacity is reduced, so you need to treat it lightly to avoid any complications,” says Abouchar. Enlist antioxidants such as vitamins C and E that work to ward off free-radical damage, and retinol, a vitamin-A derivative, to build collagen and smooth fine lines. Increased susceptibility to pigmentation and dark spots means that a broad-spectrum SPF is even more crucial.

The Zone: FOREHEAD Have you noticed vertical lines between your eyes, or horizontal creases that have taken up permanent residence on your forehead? They’re caused, in part, by repetitive muscle movement in this area—but could also be due to the fact that your forehead bears the brunt of the sun’s harmful UV rays. The result? This area is often the first place to show the telltale signs of photo-ageing, which can include fine lines, sun spots and freckles, says Ciavarro.

THE TREATMENT “Hydration is important because fine lines and wrinkles will appear more prominent on dry skin,” says consulting dermatologist Dr Nina Wines. Consider a serum containing hyaluronic acid: “As we age, our skin loses water content, resulting in more visible fine lines. Hyaluronic acid is one of the most effective moisturising ingredients, because of its ability to retain and absorb 1,000 times its weight in water.” Also, look into collagenboosting ingredients such as vitamin C, best applied in the morning under moisturiser to add antioxidant protection, in addition to retinol in the evening, says Abouchar. It’s important to note that you need to incorporate retinol into your routine gradually to minimise skin irritation.

The Zone: LIPS The concerns? “Lines both on and surrounding the lips, loss of volume from the vermillion [the red part of your pout] as it reduces in size over time, and drooping at the corners,” says Abouchar. While lines are often attributed to smoking, the daily pressures our underlying muscles put on the skin around the lips are also contributing factors, adds Ciavarra.

FOR DEFINITION Applied around and on the lips, this cream, rich in hyaluronic acid, protects while adding definition to natural contours Doctor Babor Anti-Wrinkle Booster For Lips; $100; 1800 139 139

FOR PLUMPNESS With a silky gel texture, this serum uses hyaluronic acid to boost hydration, plus olive-leaf extract to prevent future moisture loss. Fine lines appear less visible and the skin more vibrant

FOR EVEN TONE The dual-chamber offers two formulas in one, with both oil and water-based ingredients for optimum hydration. It’s also enriched with 20 pure plant extracts to even out, smooth and refine texture

Clarins Double Serum, $130; 02-9663 4277

The Zone: CHEEKS “This area reveals noticeable signs of volume loss and reduction in elasticity or ‘bounce back’,” says Ciavarra. “With less fatty tissue acting as support, skin tissue below the cheeks becomes saggy. Also, a reduction of natural hydrators and collagen can cause the skin to lose its plumpness.”

FOR LIFTING Harnessing the anti-ageing benefits of pure retinol, these masks fit over facial areas to tone and sculpt Shiseido Vital Perfection Wrinklelift Mask, $125; 1800 225 032

THE TREATMENT “Hydrated lips will always appear more youthful,” says Abouchar, so ensure you apply a nutrient-rich balm and apply your skincare around this area, too, including SPF. “Just be careful not to be overzealous with application,” says Ciavarra. “You may experience breakouts on the skin tissue surrounding the lips and blackheads around the lip border from any rich emollients in products.”

THE TREATMENT FOR SHAPING This two-step treatment can be applied to the lips and their borders, and uses light-diffusing optics to add definition and shape Estée Lauder Plump + Fill Expert Lip Treatment, $70; esteelauder.com.au

Search for products that target collagen production and address dehydration. Your application technique is important, too. “Apply products sparingly and place them on the skin lightly, without vigorous rubbing. Smooth them in an upward direction so as not to pull the skin downwards. It’s best not to encourage gravity,” says Ciavarra.

FOR FIRMING This peel-off facial mask uses marshmallow and licorice leaf to provide an instant tightening effect Glamglow Gravity Mud Firming Treatment, $98; at mecca.com.au


Dermatologists, nutritionists and integrated wellness experts agree: what you eat is just as important as (if not more than) the lotions you layer on your face. Salty or sugary foods can show up on your skin in the form of lines or puffiness, while filling up on the right kind of fuel (greens, good fats and vitamin-rich fruits, for example) can bring on a healthy, youthful radiance.

GET GLOWING WITH THESE MUST-HAVES

These ingredients work wonders from the inside out, but they also pack a punch in your skincare regimen, too

CHIA SEEDS These are one of the richest sources of omega-3 and -6 fatty acids, which protect the skin from environmental stressors. Try Goodness Certified Organic Chia Seed Oil ($19.95; goodnessproducts. com), a certified-organic, lightweight facial oil that contains organically grown chia seeds sourced from Central America.

KIWIFRUIT Ideal for dehydrated skin, the kiwiseed oil found in Antipodes Kiwi Seed Oil Eye Cream ($49; antipodesnature.com) contains high quantities of omega-3 and is also rich in vitamin C. It works to maintain your skin’s natural moisture levels while also brightening and repairing the skin around the eyes.

KALE With kaolin clay and bentonite to draw out skin impurities, Sukin Organics Super Greens Detoxifying Facial Mask ($15.95; sukinorganics.com) relies on a blend of active green ingredients including kale, spirulina, parsley and chlorella for a boost of antioxidants and vitamins for a fresh, healthy complexion.

ÑìWMSPNJ?RCýRF OMEGA-3S Why? Foods with “healthy fats” (aka omega-3 fatty acids)—such as avocados, chia seeds, flaxseeds, walnuts and wild salmon—are anti-inflammatory. “Eating them helps halt the breakdown of collagen, a skin-firming protein,” says nutritionist Keri Glassman. “That, in turn, prevents fine lines.” How much should I eat? Try for at least two servings of fish per week (salmon is one of the best sources of omega-3). Not a seafood fan? Eat a snack with healthy fat, like a handful of walnuts, daily. ANTIOXIDANTS Why? Vitamins A and C counter skin-cell-damaging free radicals in your body—but that’s not all. Vitamin A, found in butternut squash, carrots, sweet potatoes and rockmelon, can help reduce inflammation and encourage cell turnover, thereby reducing your risk of breakouts, says Glassman. How much should I eat? Depending on your age and physical condition (smokers, for example, may require more antioxidants than non-smokers), the amount varies. Consider slicing kiwi into yogurt for breakfast; one whole fruit delivers 100 per cent of most people’s daily value of vitamin C. As for vitamin A, try half a cup of rockmelon a day. CRUCIFEROUS VEGETABLES Why? “Broccoli, brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower and kale contain a phytonutrient called sulforaphane, which can stimulate liver detoxification of hormones,” explains naturopath Taryn Forrelli. This process helps “eliminate excess storage of the hormone estrogen, which may lead to blemishes,” she says. How much should I eat? Aim for a salad the size of two open palms containing the aforementioned vegetables every day, says integrated wellness expert Dr Frank Lipman. If the monotony wears on you, steam them, blend them and toss them into a smoothie; the ground greenery will add thickness if not flavour. LEAN PROTEIN Why? Eating lean meat from grass-fed animals, organic chicken and wild fish helps “stabilise blood sugar, combating insulin spikes that jump-start inflammation,” says Dr Lipman. And remember: the more inflammation in your body, the more prone you’ll be to acne and collagen loss. How much should I eat? Though the amount of lean protein your body needs is based on your weight, health goals and physical condition, Glassman recommends getting 25 to 30 per cent of your daily kilojoules from protein. You can incorporate protein shakes, but try to avoid a sugary or too-rich dairy base.

Here’s what you QFMSJBASR@?ÚML SWEETS Why? A spike in blood sugar “can trigger an inflammatory response,” says dermatologist Nicholas Perricone. The worst offenders: high-sugar lollies, fruit juices and soda. Extra sugar in your bloodstream can degrade proteins such as skin-firming collagen and keratin in a process called glycation, says Nigma Talib, a naturopath and author of Younger Skin Starts in the Gut (amazon.com). “High insulin levels can also stimulate the production of androgens, hormones that may cause acne flare-ups,” says Forrelli. If you need a sugar fix, indulge a few times a week, at the most. How can I cheat? Curb your sweet tooth with fresh fruit. If you’re going to eat a cookie, make it a small one with high-quality ingredients (eg raw butter and antioxidant-rich dark chocolate). When you can’t resist that slice of birthday cake (no judgment), make sure you increase your daily intake of those “good fats”, which can stabilise the influx of sugar and quell further cravings.

PROCESSED FOODS Why? Most contain man-made fats and oils such as canola and soybean, which can trigger inflammation. They’re also often “high in sodium, which makes the body retain water and can cause your skin to look puffy,” says Glassman. How much less are we talking about? Aim to make processed foods a once-a-week rather than a once-a-day occurrence. How can I cheat? If you do nothing else, cut “white foods” such as white bread, sweetened cereals, pasta and rice: They break down fast, requiring your body to release extra insulin, speeding up inflammation. DAIRY Why? In a word, pimples. “If you are prone to breakouts and acne, you could try eliminating some dairy products and observe how your skin reacts,” says skin specialist Ana Troccoli. Consider other sources of calcium such as almond milk, sheep or goat’s cheese and leafy greens. How can I cheat? You could get a taste by treating dairy as a condiment (sprinkle parmesan over vegetables)—occasionally. WINE Why? Sadly, vino is “basically fermented sugar,” says Talib. “I can always spot ‘wine face,’” she says. “Lines are more pronounced, eyelids droop and skin is dehydrated.” Wine also kills good bacteria in the gut, allowing the bad kind to multiply, which can cause a low level of toxicity that can turn out the lights on your complexion. If you can’t bear to part with your favourite vino aim to cut down to one glass, no more than three days a week How can I cheat? Keep in mind that dry red wine is less acidic than a sweeter white variety.

From her eponymous Sydney clinic, Melanie Grant treats a client list that includes Lara Worthington and Jessica Gomes. Here, she talks hero anti-ageing buys and her secrets for a luminous complexion

TREAT SKIN FROM WITHIN “There are many factors that can affect our skin, especially as we age. These include diet, lifestyle, stress and hormonal changes,” says Grant. It’s important to keep in mind that no amount of skincare and in-salon treatments will work unless you address these skin stressors. WEAR SUNSCREEN EVERY DAY It really is that simple, says Grant. “Your skin’s primary job is to protect you, but you also have to look after your skin by giving it the right protection.” Make sunscreen a part of your everyday regimen by choosing a day cream or moisturiser with a built-in SPF, and layer it over an antioxidant-based serum. “Sun damage not only contributes to hyper-pigmentation, it can also break down collagen, resulting in lines, wrinkles, skin laxity, large pores and redness,” says Grant. “I never leave the house without applying sunscreen to my face, neck and décolletage. Formulations have come a long way in recent years so you don’t have to worry about products causing breakouts or congestion.” EXFOLIATE YOUR WAY TO BRIGHTNESS Forget those abrasive, harsh scrubs of the past: Grant recommends sloughing away dead skin cells by using a cleanser containing alpha-hydroxy acids in the evening, or if you have sensitive skin, every other night. “As we age, cell turnover slows down gradually, causing dullness and lack of lustre,” says Grant. “Incorporating this ingredient will help to achieve fresh, dewy-looking skin.” TRY LIGHT THERAPY Suitable for most skin types and textures, Grant says that over a course of treatments, light therapy, an in-salon treatment that involves using a bright LED light to increase collagen production, can result in firmer, plumper and smoother skin. “Also, along with the stimulation of increased blood and lymphatic flow, it helps to detox and de-puff your complexion.” But wait—there’s more. “It is also anti-inflammatory and promotes healing, so it’s a great treatment option for almost everyone, with no pain or downtime.”

Grant has worked in the industry for 16 years, and has two Melanie Grant Skin Health clinics—in Sydney’s Double Bay and Armadale in Melbourne. This year, she was named skin expert for Chanel Australia

3 WAYS TO GET GLOWING

MORNING Apply a brightening antioxidant serum to clean skin and follow with a moisturising sunscreen, says Grant. “It’s important to find a serum that contains vitamin C—this is what will brighten your skin and produce a genuine glow. Then, use a moisturiser that gives a dewy finish for a healthy, freshlooking complexion.”

NIGHT Before bed, Grant recommends washing your face with a cleanser rich in alpha-hydroxy acids, then applying a retinol serum and hydrating night cream. “The cleanser and retinol serum will lift off dead skin cells. This will allow your moisturiser to penetrate properly, resulting in polished, supple skin.”

ONCE A WEEK “I always recommend a weekly at-home facial peel and mask,” says Grant. “There are some excellent at-home peels that you just wipe over your face, neck and chest. Leave the product on for five minutes, rinse, and then apply a face mask suited to your skin type and condition.”

SKIN CONCERNS Suffering with signs of ageing? We turned to Grant for her expertise on how to treat three common complexion issues SUN DAMAGE Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen to prevent further sun-related damage, says Grant. “Lightening serums with ingredients such as niacinimide, both vitamin C and A, and kojic acid can assist in skin repair. You can also consider clinical treatments such as light therapy and laser, which work to resurface the skin, target pigmentation, sun spots and a build-up of redness over time.”

FINE LINES “Fine lines are often caused by dehydration, so enlist a hydrating serum and a peptide-enriched moisturiser, used in conjunction with a retinol serum [in the evening], to keep the skin moist and plump,” says Grant. She also recommends a professional hydrating facial to target dehydration, which will also ensure fine lines appear less obvious.

DEHYDRATION There’s a direct link between the amount of H2O you consume and your skin’s appearance. “Make sure you drink at least two litres of water daily and if you’re exposed to hours of air-conditioning, consider using a humidifier to replace the moisture lost,” says Grant. Apply a hydrating serum and nourishing moisturiser, and exfoliate correctly to allow for better absorption of your products.

Y HAIR BECOMES DRY AND FRIZZY IN THE COOLER WEATHER. HOW CAN I GIVE IT SOME EXTRA TLC?

If you don’t take off your make-up and sunscreen before washing your face, your single cleanse will only remove cosmetics—it won’t do the deep, thorough job your skin needs. Instead, try Neutrogena’s Double Cleansing Method; start with Makeup Removing Cleansing Wipes ($8; 1800 678 380), then follow with Deep Clean Gentle Scrub ($13; 1800 678 380) to get deep into the pores and remove stubborn dirt and grime.

Winter brings moisture-zapping indoor heating and long, hot showers, which can result in colour fade and dehydration. Opt for products with nourishing ingredients such as coconut milk, which is found in Tresemmé Botanique Damage Recovery Shampoo and Conditioner ($7 each; 1800 061 027). Free of parabens and dyes, they won’t strip hair of its natural oils, giving you smooth, shiny results.

I DON’T LIKE USING RICH BODY CREAMS. IS THERE A NON-GREASY ALTERNATIVE THAT STILL PROVIDES ADEQUATE HYDRATION?

If you prefer a fresh feel, Aveeno dermatologist Dr Li-Chuen Wong recommends a lightweight emollient, such as the brand’s Sheer Hydration Daily Moisturising Lotion ($13; 1800 029 979). “It’s still long-lasting, hydrating and quickly absorbed, and the colloidal oatmeal draws in moisture from the environment,” she says. 126

Because dark circles can manifest differently depending on your skin tone, we asked the experts to pick out the right hues for you. STEP 1 Apply a hydrating eye balm and let it soak in, says Dior make-up artist Daniel Martin—this will plump and smooth skin. STEP 2 Use your ring finger to pat on a little yellow, peach or red corrector, as directed below. STEP 3 Take your concealer—which should be about a shade lighter than your skin tone—and draw an upside-down triangle underneath each eye (from inner to outer corner); blend until lines disappear.

“NOTHING BEATS THE THINGS THAT HAVE MEMORIES,” SAYS UNREAL ACTRESS CONSTANCE ZIMMER, WHO ADORNS HER LA HOME WITH UNEXPECTED FINDS (VINTAGE CAMERAS AND HAND-CARVED DUCK DECOYS!) FILLED WITH CHARACTER by L AURIE SANDELL portraits photographed by EMMAN MONTALVAN interiors photographed by CHRISTOPHER PATEY styled by ALI PEW

ith their shared love of retro ceiling fans and old-fashioned typewriters, Constance Zimmer and her husband, photographer and film director Russ Lamoureux, were clearly made for each other. And yet a first date took nearly five years to happen. A mutual friend first told Zimmer “I met your future husband” way back in 2000, but at the time, both were dating other people, living on opposite sides of the country and equally ambivalent about getting together. “I didn’t want to date a director and he didn’t want to date an actress,” Zimmer explains. Then, in 2005, Zimmer threw herself a 35th-birthday party, and that same friend begged to bring Lamoureux along. The result was instant chemistry, recalls Zimmer: “That was it. We were done.” For the first few years of their relationship, the couple owned three properties between them—Lamoureux’s apartment in New York, Zimmer’s home in LA, and yet another LA house that they bought together. Even after having their daughter, Coco, in 2008, they managed to maintain a bicoastal existence. But once Coco entered kindergarten, they decided it was time to put down some roots. It was 2014 when Zimmer first laid eyes on the 325-square-metre, four-bedroom Spanishstyle house in LA’s Studio City that would become her passion project. Although she’d always been drawn to old homes, the spacious closets and modern plumbing of this place, built in 2007, proved irresistible. The proximity to her daughter’s school was another huge plus. And she swooned over the myriad French doors in the kitchen, master bedroom, living room and dining room: “When we entertain here, we play music in the guesthouse, open all the doors and serve dinner outside.” But the biggest draw was the home’s size and simplicity. “When we saw the house, we realised we could fill it with everything that we had combined from all of the places we’d lived in,” says Zimmer. “Our lives had been so spread out and it was too much. The house was very much a white block, so we added all the personality.” Thanks to the couple’s visual talents—“my husband and I are both super-creative people”—they artfully integrated the contents of three houses into one without the help of an interior designer.

“We had flea-market finds mixed with midcentury-modern pieces mixed with Spanish-style stuff,” she says. “We kept everything. It was fun to decorate because it was a challenge to figure out how to make it all work.” The result is an extensive array of fabrics, colours and textures that shouldn’t quite harmonise but do, like the librarycum-office that features a Saarinen Tulip table standing on a hand-stitched carpet Zimmer bought on eBay, shelves that hold her husband’s boxing gloves, a helmet she scored at a flea market and vintage books, from Pippi Longstocking to Moby Dick. “If you’re going to bring in modern, you have to mess with it,” Zimmer explains. During a recent visit, Zimmer is sitting at her dining table, wearing a cosy robe. She admits she would live in jeans and a T-shirt every day if she could. “Everything has to be baggy,” she says. “I’m not a tight-clothes person—even though all the characters I play, for the most part, are always in very tight dresses.” Those prominent roles range from high-powered movie executive Dana Gordon on SoHo’s Entourage to fearless showrunner Quinn King on Stan’s dark comedy UnReal. “I’m definitely casual and comfortable all the time. And I tend to not wear shoes.” One of her favourite pastimes is lounging barefoot in the backyard with her daughter; the two snuggle on huge outdoor pillows with their dog, Nico, and cat, Leo. It’s where the family spends most of their time —and where, Zimmer admits, “we spent all of our money”. The couple converted their water-guzzling lawns into more eco-friendly designs, replacing the grass with drought-tolerant plants and decomposed granite, which looks like gravel. In the back, they planted fruit trees and started to grow the beginnings of ivy on the guesthouse. A table serves as a craft station and hub for alfresco dining. “This is definitely a house for entertaining,” says Zimmer, who finds a reason for an occasion every three or four months: birthdays, farewells for when she goes out of town and small dinner parties. Lamoureux is the cook in the family—“He’s so good, why compete?”—and after everyone has eaten, she’s been known to move the party to the outdoor fire pit so guests can make their own s’mores. Suddenly, Coco appears and settles into her mum’s lap. Zimmer checks in with her fair-haired daughter, who promptly starts whispering into her ear. Whimsical touches abound throughout the property, like a “fairy garden” on a porch off the master bedroom: “We built it for them,” says Zimmer

The wooden stage in the backyard is the perfect perch for a canvas tepee

matter-of-factly, pointing to a cluster of potted plants with dollhouse-like furniture nestled into the soil. “We leave out thimbles of milk for the fairies because we’ve read that’s what they like,” she adds. There’s also a backyard stage she had made so that Coco and her friends can perform. The eight-year-old’s bedroom is about to change, says Zimmer, who adds with a touch of pride, “She’s going to big-girl status.” They’ll be swapping out the bunk bed for a queen-size frame, the small beanbags for a giant faux-fur beanbag, and the dresser which used to hold Coco’s change table —for a “big, fancy chest of drawers.” As someone who never stops searching for the next exciting vintage discovery, Zimmer plans to continue to work on her space, which, for her, is one giant art project. But for now, she’s ready to end her day with some family time. Embracing Leo (Coco has just run off to read the illustrated Harry Potter), Zimmer looks up as her husband enters the kitchen. “What should I make for dinner?” he asks. Someday, true to the couple’s nomadic, bohemian spirit, they will move again, Zimmer says, and start the process of transforming a new space. “I would like another Spanish-style home, a true 1920s Spanish,” she says, “or we could do midcentury modern but decorate it in this same eclectic way, against the grain.” But it sure looks like it will be hard for her to leave. “I love being able to look out onto the yard at those big fruit trees—we have avocado, grapefruit and lemon,” she muses, unwittingly cataloguing each one with a sense of appreciation and passion that is, by now, just the way she views the world around her. After all, when you are an avid collector, it’s not easy to part with your treasures. ■

F

ew winter-weekend activities are more pleasurable than a pub lunch. And this winter, one of Australia’s best-known chefs, Guillaume Brahimi, has taken over the dining room and bar menu at one of Sydney’s best-loved watering holes, the Four In Hand, making the Sunday institution extremely pleasurable indeed. “I’ve always loved that pub—it’s my local!” the chef enthuses of his latest dining venture, pointing out that it is, handily, “50 metres away” from his eponymous Paddington fine-diner. Yet where Guillaume is all Parisian-bistro elegance, “the Four”, as he affectionately calls it, is “gastropub at its best”. Just don’t expect his famed gallic fare: “We’re not doing French bistro [food], because we’ve got a French bistro around the corner. We’ve got no boundaries here, so if we want to do a dish that’s a little bit Asian, we do, if we want to try a classic, we do—that’s why I love it,” he explains. While the menu may be missing steak frites and soufflé, Brahimi is quick to point out that,“we’re using classic French techniques, because that’s where most cooking techniques are based.” This approach, for Brahimi, has been honed over more than 30 years of practice: “I was 14 when I started, and I’m 48 now, so it’s quite a long time!” he laughs. The chef trained under Michelin-starred maestro Joel Roubuchon in Paris, before moving to Sydney in the late ’80s with a suitcase and a plan to “look around for a year or two”. Fast-forward to 2016 and Brahimi can count multicity restaurateur, author, TV presenter and brand ambassador among his many roles. “It would be easy just to have one restaurant and two days off a week —I think about it sometimes!” he smiles. “It’s crazy, it’s non-stop, but I love it.” So, how does he differentiate the Four In Hand from the rest of his restaurant offerings in Sydney, Melbourne and Perth? “We’re still using seasonal produce, but it’s more like a canteen—somewhere you can go for lunch, grab something to eat and a glass of chablis and you’re done. Or you can come with eight friends and have a great meal—but the philosophy is: keep it simple.” It’s a mindset Brahimi employs when cooking at home, too. “Last night I made spaghetti bolognese! I like making stews and food my kids like, but I’m also very happy to put a steak on the barbecue with lots of different salads,” he says, citing “great seasonal produce” as the cornerstone of every meal he prepares—be it in his restaurants or for family and friends. His advice for amateur Sunday-lunch cooks is similarly straightforward: “Keep it simple, [use] ingredients in season and don’t try to do a dish that requires you to do everything all at once. If you can, get a few things ready a day or two in advance.” Currently, Brahimi is inspired by winter produce including Western Australian truffles and gamey meats such as venison. “But for me winter is all about the root vegetables—celeriac, Jerusalem artichoke, pumpkin…and I love brussels sprouts.” Here, he shares the recipes from some of his favourite winter dishes from the Four In Hand dining room. ■

CELERIAC GRATIN 3 large celeriac, peeled 600ml cream 200ml milk 3 cloves garlic ¼ bunch thyme 100g Gruyere, grated 1 Preheat oven to 170°C. 2 Slice celeriac thinly (approx 2mm) using a mandolin. 3 Place cream, milk, garlic, thyme and celeriac in a pot and place on medium heat, bring to the boil, then simmer for 20 mins or until celeriac starts to soften. 4 Drain and lay celeriac neatly into layers on 30cm square baking tray. 5 When you have made 2 layers, sprinkle a thin layer of cheese on top. 6 Repeat the process and continue to build the layers and finish with grated cheese. 7 Place gratin into the oven and bake for 45 mins or until celeriac is tender. Serve.

Q& A

WITH EMMA LOUISE

She shot to international fame in 2011 with her hit single, Jungle, but after taking a twoyear hiatus from the music industry to reassess and travel the world, Australian singer-songwriter Emma Louise is back with a new perspective and a new album... How would you describe the sound of your new album, Supercry? “I know that it is very honest. I’d say half the

songs are reflective and the rest are a celebration of having found newer, brighter times.” Do you have a favourite track? “It’s ‘Grace’. The song about my best friend. We’ve known each other since 8th grade—she’s my soul mate.” You spent a lot of time creating Supercry in an old castle in the south of France. What was that experience like? “The village I was in was like something out of a movie,

it was so amazing. I didn’t know making an album could be so fun.” Did you get up to anything crazy? “Yes! There was a lot of wine and improvised entertainment. In the last month my drummer came over and we’d have dance and wrestling competitions in a park in the centre of the village.” How did you celebrate finishing the album? “I went on a little road trip with my cousin and played her the mixes. It was the first time someone who wasn’t involved with the album, creatively or professionally, had heard it. It was a celebration to see her enjoy the songs innocently and with no judgment.”

You painted the cover artwork for Supercry. Does being creative in this way contribute to your musical process? “I started painting when I wasn’t writing songs, to express

myself in a different way. I think painting and any other creative practice helps to take the pressure off my music.” What’s on your agenda for the rest of the year? “I’m planning some really cool things around Supercry, and I’ve also written another album, so I want to record that as soon as I can!” Supercry is out now through Liberation Music
