MY LIFE IN BOOKS giles deacon The pop culture-loving British fashion designer shares the reads that have shaped his life

DAN LENO & THE LIMEHOUSE GOLEM by Peter Ackroyd I gravitate towards books set in London, and Limehouse is close to my studio. Ackroyd writes in such a visceral way about this precursor to Jack the Ripper, and transports you to the Victorian court scenes. I absolutely adore London as a city. It’s very inspiring, exciting and constantly surprising.

KISS KISS by Roald Dahl I bought this macabre short-story Œ˜••ŽŒ’˜—ȱ ‘Ž—ȱ ȱęȱ›œȱ–˜ŸŽȱ˜ȱ London to go to Central Saint Martins.

Ira

NAME

57, M, NEW YORK Ira, which means “watchful” in Hebrew, is an Old Testament name that was mildly popular among the American Jewish community in 1959, the year Glass was born.

Black-framed glasses and a suit.

He’s worked in public radio for 30 years, and has been the host and producer of acclaimed radio show This American Life since ’95.

WORDS: LAURA COLLINS. PHOTOGRAPHY: GETTY IMAGES; JESSE MICHENER; VINCENT STARR; EBRU YILDIZ

No, he’s married to writer and Rookie editorial director Anaheed Alani.

Straight from the show notes: “[His production] explores themes of love and morality, combining classic on-air storytelling with playful choreography that skips between rat-pack suits and slinky-suave gowns. New York dancers Monica Bill Barnes and Anna Bass create a dynamic duet as Glass brings live radio drama centre stage with theatrically homespun charm.”

Listen to Alec Baldwin interview Glass for an episode of his podcast, Here’s The Thing.

No, he’s married to Charlotte de Botton. They run a production company together.

Straight from the show notes: “Twentyfirst century depictions of love and marriage are shaped by a set of romantic myths and misconceptions, and with his trademark warmth and wit, Alain de Botton explores the complex landscape of a modern relationship, presenting a realistic case study for marriage and examining what it might mean to love, to be loved – and to stay in love.”

Actor, author, playwright. Gill Pringle tries her hand at unravelling the mystery behind this enigmatic multi-hyphenate

ho doesn’t love a guy who can express his feelings? Take Jesse Eisenberg, who has no taboo topics, ‘Š™™’•¢ Œ‘ŠĴ’— Š‹˜ž ŽŸŽ›¢‘’— and anything, long sentences tumbling from his mouth. His body pulsates with nervous energy, his ꗐŽ›œ Œ˜—œŠ—•¢ ˜žŒ‘’—ǰ  ‘’Œ‘ he explains is a product of his OCD. In comparison, his idol Woody Allen, who he worked with on To Rome With Love and the upcoming Café Society, seems positively laid-back. His rapid speech, he says, is a result of growing up in a family of talkers. “It’s hard to get a word in edgeways, so if you don’t speak quickly, you won’t speak,” says the actor, who has two sisters, Hallie and Kerri. “It’s a survival thing; it’s not a talent. I didn’t talk until I was three and

then I immediately started at this pace. I’m still making up for the ꛜ ‘›ŽŽ ¢ŽŠ›œ ˜ œ’•Ž—ŒŽǯȄ Eisenberg’s relationship with Australian actress Mia Wasikowska, who he met when they co-starred in The Double three years ago, seemed ideal. She, shy Š— šž’Žǰ Š— ‘’–ǰ ꕕ’— ’— ‘Ž silence. He even accompanied her to our shores in 2014, concluding, “It’s the most beautiful place in the world. The only downside is that it’s so far away, so that’s why it hasn’t been overrun by people wanting to live there.” The long-distance relationship has since cooled, and Eisenberg admits he’s uncomfortable about commitment. “When you’re with somebody in a relationship, in a way it’s your responsibility to make them happy all the time,” says the 32-year-old. “Luckily I have no real responsibilities in

I could feel guilty about this tablecloth, just give me a minute,” he says, hands hovering above the table where we sit at a hotel in LA. It should be said that he doesn’t enjoy this city, despite it being the home of movie-making – he much prefers the hectic pace of New York, where he calls home. “Everyone is so slow, I can’t stand it. I go crazy after a day [in LA].

He rarely watches TV or takes holidays. “If I haven’t worked enough, I don’t feel I’ve earned the right to relax. I recognise it’s probably a problem. I only travel for work. I’ve been all over the world but prefer developing countries because they’re more interesting, otherwise everything looks like America.” Eisenberg doesn’t welcome newcomers into his inner circle easily, although his Now You See Me 2 Œ˜ȬœŠ› Š—’Ž• ŠŒ•’ěŽ ’œ an exception. “He has become Š ›’Ž—ǯ Ž ‹˜‘  ˜›” ’— ‘Ž Ž ȱ York theatre community and his girlfriend was in my last play.

These days, when I get frustrated or angry at myself, I wish I could get her on the phone. Sometimes it’s hard to work out what life is all about when you don’t talk to a trusted girlfriend about your feelings often. Living without that kind of regular counsel feels like such a giant loss. Beth, a close friend from university who lives in another city, used to call at least once a month. Now if I call her, she always sounds like she’s in the middle of something. I know she has a husband, a toddler and a full-time job to juggle, but it always seems like she talks on the phone so infrequently that she doesn’t remember how. “Are you about to visit or something?â€? she asks. “Is something wrong?â€? Nothing is wrong, I just want to talk. Is it crazy to hope for that anymore? And even though my mother and I say we’re going to talk on the phone at least once a week, we rarely do. ŽȂ›Ž ’— Â?’쎛Ž—Â?

This was a girl whose disdain for the sick, sad world around her – her brain-dead classmates, hypocritical adults and a society obsessed with appearance over substance – was a mind-blowing revelation to my lost and lonely teenage self. I’m yet to discover another show (except Freaks And Geeks) where the socially inept outsider is actually the hero, where the ultimate goal is not Â?˜ Ä™Â? ’— ‹žÂ? Â?˜ ›Š’• ŠÂ?Š’—œÂ?

She wasn’t impervious to love, it was just something she wanted on her own terms and without having to pile on the makeup to get. Daria taught me that once the suck-fest of adolescence had passed, girls like us could move on to a world where the ability to discuss Dostoyevsky counted for more than bouncy ‘Š’›ǰ Â?‘Ž ›’Â?‘Â?

I loved the way she was so comfortable with solitude, and learnt from her mistakes, and never compromised on her values. Those were traits I could really respect, and ones I’d later enforce upon myself when I had a habit of falling in pseudo-love with every guy I met in my early twenties. The Stratford spirit helped me bounce back from a broken heart every time, and reminded me that I shouldn’t be living up to other people’s expectations, but my own. And besides, none of those losers even came close to Patrick Verona.

FRĂ„ULEIN MARIA by Caroline Brothers, author of The Memory Stones ($35, Bloomsbury Circus), out August 1

n primary school, I went through a phase of being enraptured by Maria, Julie Andrews’ character in The Sound Of Music. Her fallingsout with the Mother Superior as a trainee nun, all that WWII heroism, the romping around with pillows with all those kids she had to look after as a governess, their escape across Â?‘Ž •™œ Â?˜  ’ľŽ›•Š—Â?Ç° Š Œ˜ž—Â?ݢ ”—Ž  Â˜Â—Â•Â˘ from snow globes – it was all so headily exotic to a kid growing up in Melbourne’s suburbs, where nothing ever seemed to happen. Â?Â&#x;Ž—Â?ž›Žǰ Â?›Š–Šǰ •˜Â&#x;ÂŽ ÂŠÄ›ÂŠÂ’Â›ÂœÇą Š›’Š  Šœ surrounded by it all. She was like the big sister I never had in her rapport with the seven von Trapp kids, wise with the eldest girl, Liesl, and kindly to the smallest, Gretl. Furthermore, she lived in Austria, which was full of mountains and castles – to me the epitome of Europe. How I felt for her in her dirndl frock when Baroness Schraeder, impossibly sophisticated in that gold dress, moved in on Captain von Trapp. The injustice! Maria must be the one to marry him – it was obvious because of the purity of her heart. At the time, all that intensity seemed like HIGH NOTE truly living. Plus, you could sing along to the Julie Andrews songs. Julie Andrews had an incredible fourin the iconic octave voice I could only aspire to in the bath. role of Maria “Maria’s not an asset to “Maria’s life was so headily exotic to a kid the a-bbey, growing up in Melbourne’s suburbsâ€? da da da dum,â€? I would bellow. I think I admired Maria’s pluckiness, and how perfect she looked. My own hair would never do what hers did; my school uniform never sat like her frocks.

She was probably partly responsible for my lifelong fascination with Europe, and perhaps for an early sense of history pressing in at the edges of things.

I started to experience a really high level of test-related anxiety and it was hard to come down from it. I had always been sensitive healthwise, a hypochondriac. But being at law school pushed me over the edge. For me, anxiety meant a general feeling of being wound-up and restless, not being able to concentrate or think, not being able to sleep.

So it reached a point where I had trouble coping: the worrying paralysed me for a full two weeks, during most of which I didn’t sleep.

I didn’t want the medicine. My breakthrough came from a place I didn’t expect: my swimming instructor. When I was a child, I was in an accident in a swimming pool that caused a real fear of deep water. So I decided I wanted to conquer this as an adult. I thought it could help. It was during a lesson  ‘Ž—  Šœ •ŽŠ›—’—Â? ‘˜  Â?˜ ̘ŠÂ? in water that my instructor told –Žǰ ČƒÂ˜ÂžČ‚Â›ÂŽ ŠÂ?›Š’Â? ˜Â? •ŽĴ’—Â?

I stopped taking it when I became pregnant with my second child and had anxiety throughout. I was nervous that something bad would happen to him, like maybe when he was born the umbilical cord would be wrapped around his neck.

TIPS FOR BEATING ANXIETY 1. SEE A PROFESSIONAL Anxiety is unlikely to go away on its own. Talk to a professional who can provide advice and treatment options.

2. CHANGE YOUR THINKING Guided by a professional, cognitive behavioural therapy can help you recognise your negative thoughts and teach you how to change your response to them.

3. FOCUS ON YOUR HEALTH Regular activity, adequate sleep and a balanced diet can all help in managing and even preventing anxiety.

4. GET ONLINE There are plenty of online treatment options, such as MindSpot (mindspot.org.au), which provides free assessments and treatment courses.

5. MANAGE YOUR STRESS Regularly practising relaxation techniques such as slow breathing and meditation can help reduce your feelings of anxiety.

6. FIND SUPPORT Sites like beyondblue and Sane Australia have online forums where people can discuss their problems with others and find solutions.

parts unknown Mixed heritage and a nomadic childhood left Annie Kane with identity crisis on a global scale

omeone asked me the other day where I was from. I said I didn’t know. For most people, it isn’t a hard question – they were born somewhere and probably lived there for their childhood, saw the same faces and the same streets day in, day out, and visited family nearby. But I didn’t. I was born in a city I have no memory of, I spent my childhood in a country where I didn’t speak the language and I have family members spread across nearly every continent in the world.

I was at a bus stop in Sydney on a windy day last October, and as raindrops started to fall, the small, sheltered spot I had taken up suddenly became quite crowded. It was here that a middle-aged man with a charming half-sloping smile started up a conversation with me. After a few brief remarks about the weather, he noted my English accent. “You’re far from home,” he said. “But you aren’t really English,” he added, scrutinising my face. “What are you?” The question stunned me, especially since nearly half of all Australians were either born overseas or have at least one parent who was. I’d never been Šœ”Žȱ˜ȱŽęȱ—Žȱ–¢œŽ•ȱœ˜ȱ’›ŽŒ•¢ȱ before. “What am I?” How do you answer that? I considered giving him a glib reply – “Oh, thanks for asking.

half-English and half-Chinese. “Oh, so that’s it,” he said, “the Chinese.” It was as if he’d solved a niggling puzzle. Now that he had pigeonholed me by my looks and racial background he visibly relaxed. Meanwhile, I was rigid with raging emotion: disgust at the ignorance of the man, anger at the rudeness of the question, confusion as to why he would need to categorise me, vulnerability at being scrutinised Š—ȱŠȱ•’Ĵȱ•Žȱ‹’ȱ˜ȱœŠ—Žœœǯȱ›ž‘ȱ‹Žȱ told, I didn’t really know what I was.

If I didn’t know these customs, could I really claim to be British? The identity that I had been so sure of as a child was being pulled from under me.

aided by the fact that it’s easier to consume pop culture now than ever before, particularly due to “bingewatching” models of streaming and greater access to downloadable TV and podcasts online – and there always seems to be a new, highquality program to add to the queue. True crime has become the dominant water-cooler conversation of 2016. “There’s been a rebirth of the category as a spectacle genre,” says Sarah Bunting, editor-in-chief ˜ ›žŽȬŒ›’–Ž ‹•˜ ‘Ž •˜ĴŽ›ǯ ȃ — a bookstore, the true-crime section is usually in the back, in the ȁŽ–‹Š››Šœœ’—Ȃ œŽŒ’˜—ǯ   Šœ œ˜–Ž‘’— ‘Š ¢˜ž  Ž›Ž Š •’Ĵ•Ž ashamed of, like your guilty pleasure.” But repackaged as glossy, prestige Ž•ŽŸ’œ’˜— ˜› Š ›’Ĵ¢ ™˜ŒŠœǰ ‘Ž stigma around “low-brow” true crime is beginning to evaporate. Last year, HBO’s documentary series The Jinx: The Life And Deaths Of Robert Durst inspired massive interest in the real-estate heir who’s been linked to ‘›ŽŽ ŽŠ‘œǯ ‘Ž ꗊ•Ž ŠĴ›ŠŒŽ more than one million viewers in the US, not taking into consideration the millions of illegal torrents that were being simultaneously downloaded around the world. More recently, Ryan Murphy’s much-anticipated The People V OJ Simpson ŠĴ›ŠŒŽ international acclaim and introduced a new generation to the salacious story of that mid-’90s murder trial. Closer to home, The Australian’s ꟎ȬŽ™’œ˜Ž Bowraville podcast has been a major talking point. Hosted by crime reporter Dan Box, it traces the investigation into the murders of three Aboriginal children from the same street, in the same NSW ›ž›Š• ˜ —  ’‘’— ꟎ –˜—‘œ ˜ each other in the early ’90s, and their families’ desperation to have the cases treated as serial killings.

There’s no question true-crime programs are dominating the cultural conversation. While interest in the genre is not new – Truman Capote’s 1966 book In Cold Blood is still referenced as pioneering a more sophisticated take on the subject area – it does seem to have reached a new intensity. According to Bunting, this recent popularity can be traced back to the cultural phenomenon of SerialȂœ ꛜ œŽŠœ˜— ’— •ŠŽ ŘŖŗŚǯ The podcast, which investigated the real-life 1999 murder of teenager Hae Min Lee, and the contested guilt of her convicted killer Adnan ¢Žǰ ŠĴ›ŠŒŽ Š ’ŸŽ›œŽ •˜‹Š• audience when previously true crime had appealed to a much more niche demographic. While speaking at the Australian —Ž›—Š’˜—Š• ˜Œž–Ž—Š›¢ Conference held in Melbourne this year, two of the creators of The Jinx, Marc Smerling and Zac StuartPontier, said the only thing that has changed is that true-crime stories are now being told in a more gripping way. “We were always watching crime – Law & Order has always been pervasive,” Smerling said. “But it used to be like one hour, one Œ›’–Žǰ —˜  ’Ȃœ •’”Ž ŗŖ Ž™’œ˜Žœǯ Ȃœ become more of a soap opera. Now you have people interested in the people in the story because you’re cultivating that in the story.” The communal experience of  ŠŒ‘’— ‘ŽœŽ œ‘˜ œ ˜ěŽ›Ž ‹¢ social media has allowed a level of intense immersion that makes the

viewer feel like they have a unique handle on the story. Talking about these shows and podcasts is just as captivating as consuming them. Particularly on Reddit, amateur detectives have spent hours debating the merits of evidence presented in the Avery case, conjuring elaborate theories based on their own research and even crowdsourcing court transcripts and hours of police confession videos. “There is this tension to it,” says Bunting. “You think you want it resolved but you kind of don’t because the thing that makes you obsessed with it is that you’ll never know for sure.” For this reason, the obsession with Serial still hasn’t faltered.

The challenge is, these shows have to create an interesting narrative that leads to some sort of resolution, but they obviously can’t mess with the truth.

public pressure can be an important element in seeking a change. But just as trials can result in unjust outcomes, so too can popular culture.” It’s dangerous to assume that true crime has a greater purpose than any other genre, because the moment we expect it to be purely instructive is when it ceases to be pop culture and is instead a robotic court transcript. ‘Ž›ŽȂœȱŠȱ’ěȱŽ›Ž—ŒŽȱ‹Ž ŽŽ—ȱ‘Žȱ exploitative true crime on late-night pay TV, the kind with graphic re-enactments and sensational reality TV-style confessionals, and other documentaries that ask us to question the very nature of being human. And the tales just keep coming. In the US, CBS has announced it’s commissioning a series on the 1996 unsolved murder of six-year-old beauty pageant queen JonBenet Ramsey. Following on from The People V OJ Simpson, actor Martin Sheen claimed he was making a short docu-series pointedly called Hard Evidence: OJ Is Innocent. The creator of Law & Order, Dick Wolf, has already started working on a true-crime anthology that will tackle real events, starting with the Menendez brothers who murdered their wealthy parents in Beverly Hills in the late ’80s. It’s easy to chastise ourselves for being intrigued by these stories, but essentially we’ll always be interested in things like the justice system, implausible circumstances and the nature of truth. “Maybe you don’t want to admit it, but people are interested in murder,” Bunting says. “Does that say anything good about humanity? No it doesn’t, but that’s the reality. So let’s just try to tell ugly stories in a competent, professional and thought-provoking manner. There’s never going to be any shortage of crime stories to tell.” ‰

THE CRIME SERIES WE’D LIKE TO SEE MANSON FAMILY MURDERS There’s never been a TV adaptation of Charles Manson’s murderous spree told from the point of view of one of his “girls”, like Leslie Van Houten and Susan Atkins, who were drawn in by Manson’s New-Age philosophy and ultimately committed crimes at his behest.

PATTY HEARST The story of the 1974 kidnapping of heiress-turned-fugitive Hearst by a radical group called the Symbionese Liberation Army inspired a schlocky film in the ’80s, but we’d love to see a miniseries about this truly bizarre chain of events.

THE SOMERTON MAN One of the most famous mysteries in Australian history, this case began in 1948 when an unidentified man was found dead on a beach in South Australia with a piece of paper that said “finished” in Persian in his pocket. At the time, there were rumours the man had been a Cold War spy.

GRISELDA BLANCO Known as the “Black Widow”, Blanco was a Colombian drug lord who controlled the Miami cocaine drug trade and underworld during the ’70s and ’80s, an unusual position for a woman. It’s suspected that she ordered more than 200 murders in cartel conflicts.

DB COOPER DB Cooper is the pseudonym for a man who, in 1971, hijacked a commercial plane in Oregon, US, and after threatening the plane crew with a bomb, demanded $200,000 and four parachutes. When the plane landed in Washington, Cooper collected his bribe and advised the crew to take flight once more. He jumped out of the plane and was never heard of again.

For a perfect red pout, use liner all over the lips before you apply your lip shade. “Sharp edges give the look more polish,” says Baron. Try Le Crayon Lèvres in Désir, $46, and Rouge Allure Velvet in Rouge Feu, $52, both Chanel, 1300 242 635. Hair with a tousled texture can still be elegant. Dry in a texturiser before hot tonging so the style has staying power, then add serum to give more air to the waves.

gemma

You may think you know her as one of the world’s most recognisable faces but, as Genevra Leek discovers, Gemma Ward has been through an epic transformation – and we don’t just mean in the makeup chair...

G 35 different looks

emma Ward is giving me running tips. Okay, one running tip. It involves staying up on the toes and Â’Â? Œ˜–Žœ Œ˜–™•ŽÂ?ÂŽ  ’Â?‘ Š ̎ŽÂ?’—Â? demonstration so graceful she •˜˜”œ •’”Ž œ‘Ž –’Â?‘Â? Â?Š”Ž ̒Â?‘Â?ÇŻ Ž› •˜—Â? legs are clad in skinny blue denim and her feet in Rick Owens black leather high-tops still covered in dust from hiking LA’s trails just the week before. Exercising outdoors, she tells me later, is her thing. The Australian supermodel grew up in Perth, and like many Aussie kids, immersed herself in physical activity: A-team rowing, running, swimming, water polo. “I feel like I tried every kind of sport,â€? œ‘Ž •ŠžÂ?Â‘ÂœÇŻ Čƒ’Ĵ’—Â? ’— Š Â?¢– Â’Âœ “žœÂ? œ˜ǰ ”’—Â? of, demoralising, I really don’t like it, so if ŒŠ— ÂŽÂĄÂŽÂ›ÂŒÂ’ÂœÂŽ ˜žÂ?œ’Â?ÂŽ Â?ŽŽ• –žŒ‘ ‹ŽĴŽ›ǯȄ Unsurprisingly for someone working in fashion, she’s long been into yoga, but she’s clear it’s on her own terms. “I try to do it by myself now because you can control how you need to stretch and at what speed, so it doesn’t feel so much like somebody’s just barking instructions at you like you’re a robot‌ I think if you’re in other people’s hands all the time, you kind of lose your sense of self, so the quickest way to reconnect is to take control of your own self and be out in nature.â€? As a modelling veteran at all of 28 years old, taking control is a concept Ward has had to become well-acquainted with. “Discoveredâ€? at 14, credited with ›ŽÂ?Žę—’—Â? Â?‘Ž Â?ŠŒŽ ˜Â? Â?Šœ‘’˜— œ˜˜— ŠÂ?Â?Ž› and earning big bucks before she had even exited her teens made for one extreme learning curve. “I felt like I couldn’t really say no for a really long time. I had this personality where I just

wanted to please everyone and I wanted to do my best. I really pushed myself; I was very hard on myself,â€? she recalls. “I always wanted to be tough, but I probably wasn’t as tough as I needed to be.â€? In 2008, at the ripe old age of 20, Ward stopped in her tracks. She’s since been open about that time, her struggle with depression Š—Â?ČąÂ?Â‘ÂŽČąÂŽÄ›ÂŽÂŒÂ?ÂœČąÂ˜Â?ČąÂ?‘ŽȹÂ?ŽŠÂ?Â‘ČąÂ˜Â?Čą ŽŠÂ?‘ȹÂŽÂ?Â?Ž›ǰȹ with whom she was romantically linked. But the less headline-grabbing reason she took what ended up being a six-year hiatus from the runway was also her need to explore what most of us consider to be the normal perks of life as a twenty-something. “It wasn’t a choice to stop, it was like I needed to stop, I actually couldn’t go on. But I also was very sure of what I needed to do,â€? she says. “There were many years, œ˜ Â?˜ŒžœŽÂ?ČąÂ˜Â—ČąÂ?Â’Ä›��ŽÂ›ÂŽÂ—Â?ČąÂ?‘’—Â?ÂœČąÂŠÂ?ČąÂ?’쎛Ž—Â?Čą Â?Â’Â–ÂŽÂœÇ°ČąÂ‹ÂžÂ?ȹ¢ŽŠ‘ǰȹÂ?Žę—’Â?Ž•¢ȹÂ?Â‘ÂŽÂ›ÂŽČąÂ ÂŠÂœČąÂœÂ˜Â–ÂŽČą healing that needed to happen. And then there was a lot of things that I felt like I just wanted to do for my life, personally. There were just some things I felt I wouldn’t be able to do when I was older, like I really wanted to go trekking in Nepal, and I wanted to go to India and go to an ashram, and I wanted to fall in love.â€? Ward worked on her acting (nabbing a role in Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides) and her art (painting, writing, music), Â?˜ž—Â? •˜Â&#x;ÂŽ ǝ ’Â?‘ ™‘˜Â?˜Â?›Š™‘Ž› ŠÂ&#x;Â’Â? ÂŽÄ´ÂœÇź and created a tiny human being called Naia, who she describes as “the highlight of my lifeâ€?. Coming to terms with the realisation there was a world beyond the youthworshipping industry in which she had Â?›˜ — ž™  Šœ •’Â?ÂŽČŹÂ?Žę—’—Â?ÇŻ Čƒ Â?Â’Â?—ȂÂ? Â?ŽŽ• like I could keep working. There was no way in the beginning, but then as time went on there were other things I felt like I needed to address. There was a time when I stopped auditioning, I stopped doing anything, and I just wrote, and practised music, because I felt like I needed to have a focus on my voice rather than my image – that was actually really healing. For me, it helped. And I wanted to focus

Como Shambhala Urban Escape at Como The Treasury, Perth

Norbü at The Olsen, Melbourne

The Day Spa at The Langham, Sydney

THE VIBE: Modern luxury.

THE VIBE: Urban getaway.

THE VIBE: Underground oasis.

TOP TREATMENT: Love Como Shambhala’s flagship property in Bali? Get your hit without leaving the country at this Perth outpost. The Sodashi Thermal Infusing Facial (90 minutes, $205) is like a boot camp for tired complexions – the warming mask drives the all-natural actives deep into skin, maximising hydration and nourishment to quickly whip your complexion into shape. You’ll walk out with renewed radiance and tone.

TOP TREATMENT: Escape South Yarra and transport yourself to an Eastern European bath house with the Hungarian Mud Wrap (90 minutes, $250). The treatment begins with a full-body exfoliation, then Éminence’s Hungarian mud (packed with circulation-boosting paprika, cinnamon and sage) is applied to cleanse and detoxify skin. While the mud dries, you’ll enjoy a mini facial. An ultrahydrating body lotion completes the experience.

TOP TREATMENT: Below Sydney’s busy streets lies a quiet escape, where the lights are dimly lit and mobile service is hard to come by. Completely unplug and melt muscle tension with the Warm Lava Shell Massage (60 minutes, from $185), which uses self-heating tiger clam shells to ease knots and detoxify, along with a unique gel blend of sea kelp, Dead Sea salts and natural minerals.

INSIDER INTEL: The hotel’s hatted bistro restaurant, Post, welcomes even the fussiest eaters. Whether you want to indulge (twice-cooked pork belly, anyone?) or detox (Como Shambhala’s signature menu with raw, vegan, sugar-free and gluten-free meals is also on offer), there’s finally something for everyone in your group

INSIDER INTEL: Top up your treatment by ducking into the spa’s Detox Box (an additional $20) for a rejuvenating 20-minute infra-red session – perfect for kicking a hangover or easing sore muscles.

INSIDER INTEL: Bring your swimmers – there’s an indoor heated pool, while the sauna and steam rooms are perfect for extending your time offline.

BEAUTY ESSENTIAL: Keep those zen spa vibes going with a heavenly oil. TRY Crystalus Body Oil, $53.90, Sodashi, sodashi.com

BEAUTY ESSENTIAL: There’s a 100 per cent chance you’ll fall in love with the skin softening results, so pick up a tub of t mud for DIY maintenance. TRY Hungarian Herbal Mud Treatment, $79, Éminence, eminenceorganics.com.au

BEAUTY ESSENTIAL: Boost the cleansing benefits at home by dry body brushing before you hit the shower (always sweep the brush towards the heart for the best lymphatic-drainage benefit). Then smother your body in oil while you’re still warm and damp from the shower. TRY Spa Fit Toning Massage Oil, $29.95, The Body Shop, thebodyshop.com.au

YOU NEED A SPOT FOR

an OTT girls’ weekend

a romantic getaway

a luxe city escape

Cool Spa at Sri Panwa, Phuket, Thailand

The Escape Cabana By Away Spa at W Retreat & Spa, Seminyak, Bali

The House Of Elemis, London, UK

THE VIBE: Trendy tropical hideaway.

THE VIBE: Day-club glam.

THE VIBE: Five-star fancy.

TOP TREATMENT: For the ultimate in bespoke therapy, Sri Panwa offers massages tailored to your blood type. It’s believed each type has a unique ailment to fend off, so the treatments aim to restore a sense of wellbeing from the inside out. Type A is said to hold on to stress, so massage is used to calm the body, Type B’s overactive immune system is balanced with oils that also target out-of-whack hormones, while Type AB can pick between the two. For Type O, who are prone to allergies and stress, massage combined with a special herb mixture helps to improve circulation and alleviate skin redness, as well as boost cellular metabolism.

TOP TREATMENT: Since you’re holidaying in an exotic locale, you may not want to spend even a hot minute of your precious time holed up in a treatment room in the hotel spa. Lucky for you, this place, which launched late last year, has thought of everything. The curtained cabana sits out in the open, so you can inhale the fresh breeze and enjoy a supreme view of the soothing blue waves. Therapists can even use the rhythm of the ocean to set the beat of their strokes during the Ocean Motion Massage. If you’re weary from all the dancing you did the night before, try the hour-long foot massage – they’ll throw in a complimentary martini.

TOP TREATMENT: Among the streets lined with chauffeur-driven Phantoms in London’s ritzy Mayfair sits this giant store and spa – a three-level extravaganza offering an array of treatments. As with most things in life, we suggest you head straight to the top: The Penthouse is a private area for treatments or casual lounging between your radiance-boosting facial and hot-stone massage. It’s only here that you can enjoy the PoulticePowered Muscle Release treatment, performed on an amber and quartz crystal bed, which will replenish, invigorate and melt away any of the tension you may have built up shopping at Chanel.

INSIDER INTEL: Want to relax by your villa’s private plunge or maybe dance after dark to a world-class DJ? Sri Panwa caters to it all – Avicii and Diplo have even spun sets there. And with six world-class restaurants and amazing views (hit up Baba Nest for drinks while watching the sunset), you and your squad will never want to leave. BEAUTY ESSENTIAL: A golden glow is a must – use a quick-drying product so you don’t waste any time getting to the pool. Prep with a body scrub for longevity TRY Natural Glow Instant Sun Sunless Tanning Mousse (1), $15.99, Natural Glow Color Primer In-Shower Scrub (2), $10.99 both Jergens, jergens.com.au Sri Panwa, Phuket, Thailand; sripanwa.com

INSIDER INTEL: If you’re suffering from a bout of jet lag, give the Away Spa a call. It’s open 24 hours and has a “detox chamber”, which has pure oxygen pumped in – the perfect place to chill while you wait for your treatment so you can give your body a boost at the same time. BEAUTY ESSENTIAL: The Bali hea can be harsh on those sun-licked limbs of yours. Maintain the skin-nourishing benefits of a massage by using oil formulas. TRY Floral Oil, $41, Ella Baché, 1800 789 234 W Retreat & Spa, Seminyak, Bali; wretreatbali.com

TUNE-OUT TUNES Whale sounds and waterfalls put you straight to sleep? Christian Davies, director of La Prairie Spa at The Ritz-Carlton New York, shares the most requested un-spa spa music (they have an extensive catalogue of playlists on offer). Consider it the perfect starting point to curating a de-stress mix without being lulled into a siesta (sadly, desk-side naps are still frowned upon).

INSIDER INTEL: Discretion is high, so don’t expect to bump into them in the hallways, but booking a slot in The Penthouse (bookings are available for full- or half-day sessions and prices are on application) will mean you’re joining a roster of A-list guests including Kate Bosworth, Lara Stone and Alicia Vikander. If you’re looking for a lastminute appointment, they’re less busy on weekday mornings. BEAUTY ESSENTIAL: Hold onto the sweet scent of your fancy-pants bliss by using Elemis’ body oil on limbs, locks and rubbed into cuticles. TRY Frangipani Monoi Body Oil, $69, Elemis, elemisaustralia.com.au @ The House Of Elemis, London, UK; elemis.com

“IN MY JOB, I NEED A SOLUTION FOR DAMAGED HAIR THAT ACTUALLY WORKS. 3 MINUTE MIRACLE CONDITIONER MAKES MY HAIR SOFT, SHINY AND EASY TO BRUSH.” — ROBYN LAWLEY, INTERNATIONAL MODEL


E L L e | A DV E R TO R I A L

THE NEW HAIR MIRACLE HAS ARRIVED The brand new haircare phenomenon Australia has been waiting for is finally here ... SAY HELLO TO STRONGER, SOFTER, SHINIER HAIR Specially formulated to repair the kind of extreme damage that comes from frequent colouring and heat styling, Pantene 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner is a super-charged step in your daily regimen. Use as a regular conditioner for nourished, smooth, shiny hair that’s softer and more manageable than ever before. It is now possible to repair three months of damage in three minutes.

NEW CONDITIONER

LONGER, BETTER, FASTER, STRONGER The best new hair trend straight from the runways? Super-long locks. Hairstylist Barney Martin reveals his top tips for maintaining extra length CONDITION ENDS “There’s no way around it — length takes time. But it will pass more quickly if you keep the ends as healthy as possible. That means using the right products to keep your hair in great condition so you won’t need to lose as much length with a cut.” ADD MOISTURE “Heat styling, colouring and even tying up your hair will weaken it. That’s why you need a nourishing, intensive conditioner to help fight frizz and moisturise parched ends.”

“THE LONG HAIR TREND MEANS KEEPING THE LENGTHS IN PEAK CONDITION IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN EVER.” — JUSTINE CULLEN, ELLE EDITOR-IN-CHIEF

Available at Coles.

INSTANT RESULTS “Pantene’s 3 Minute Miracle Conditioner is a revolutionary product that repairs and protects your hair against extreme damage — including dry, split ends and frizziness. Unlike other products, it doesn’t just mask these problems — it actually treats them. In just one wash, it will leave you with soft, shiny, glossy and noticeably healthy hair.”

2. TURN UP THE HEAT Summer’s hot temperatures make perspiring easy, but if it’s now a bit brisk to break a sweat during your morning jog, mix up your routine with a heated yoga session. SWEATING IS ONE OF THE BODY’S MAIN METHODS OF DETOXIFICATION, AND RESEARCH SHOWS IT’S AN EFFECTIVE WAY TO ELIMINATE NASTY ENVIRONMENTAL TOXINS STORED IN THE BODY. A study published in the Journal

Designer Heidi Carter’s home is a perfect example of the magic that can happen when classic meets colourful.


t’s a mixed bag – a bit tropical, a bit tribal, a bit of Chinoiserie with classic undertones,” says designer and owner of Paddo To Palmy, Heidi Carter, of her colourfully clashing Sydney home. “I tried to tone it down, but when you love brightly coloured upholstery, textiles and art like I do, it’s almost impossible,” she laughs. Carter has had plenty of time to hone her decorating expertise. When she was renovating her former home bases in Sydney’s Paddington and Palm Beach, she started a blog about the experience. The site became so popular, she’s since turned it into an online store selling homewares and fashion. @

CHILD’S PLAY Ella and Gisele’s rooms are as bright as the rest of the house. “Sometimes I think, ‘Heidi, you really need to tone down the colour a notch!’” Carter laughs

While Carter’s home is like her store come to life, she tries her best to keep the two worlds as separate as possible. “As a designer, I’m drawn to quality fabrics, unique prints and colour, so my home is Žęȱ—’Ž•¢ȱŠ ›ŽĚȱŽŒ’˜—ȱ˜ȱ‘Š,” she says. “I always have colour and fabric swatches and samples lying around. Thankfully, I now have a studio that’s separate to the house to store it.

“It’s an exclusive spot where cool, creative types lie by the pool to see and be seen”

SOHO HOUSE, ISTANBUL, TURKEY WHAT TO EXPECT AT A TURKISH BATH OUR 10-SECOND RUNDOWN OF THE TURKISH BATH HOUSE (OR “HAMAM”) EXPERIENCE

1. Upon entry, you’ll choose self-service or a traditional hamam. Go traditional. 2. You’ll be given a small chequered cloth to change into; have your swimsuit bottoms on and wrap the cloth like a towel around your torso. Don’t worry, the hamam has separate sections for men and women. 3. You’ll be taken to the hararet (hot room) to sweat out your toxins for 15 minutes. Lie on the göbektası (central raised platform) to do so. 4. When your attendant returns, they’ll pour warm water over your body before giving you a vigorous foam massage (BYO soap if you’ve got sensitive skin). Then you’ll get an equally vigorous scrub before being rinsed with cold water. Some places do the scrub first. COWSHED SPA

Soho House has a reputation for being an exclusive spot where cool, creative types can network, take meetings or, more likely, lie by the pool to see and be seen (but never photographed, thanks to the strict no-photos policy). The recently opened Istanbul location is no exception – it’s housed inside a 19th-century ™Š•Š££˜ǰȱ’—ȱ‘Žȱ‘’™ȱŽ¢˜Â•žȱ neighbourhood, with high ŒŽ’•’—œǰȱ–Š›‹•ŽȱĚȱ˜˜›œȱŠ—ȱ plush couches to wait on if your room’s not quite ready upon arrival (though you could always try heading to the Mandolin Terrace restaurant and admire the view over a daiquiri instead). If you ask us, though, it’s all about the Cowshed Spa, “a place to meet friends, eat, drink and shop” as well Šœȱ’—ž•Žȱ’—ȱŠȱ•’Ĵȱ•Žȱ grooming. Book a full day of pampering in your own treatment room – the Sleepy Cow Body Treatment is out of this world – or have a hamam session and hang out in the lounge all afternoon. @ sohohouseistanbul.com

5. Hang out in the hot room as long as you like, or move to the cool room to, well, cool down.

do romance right


“You’ll feel like a guest on one of Richard Branson’s private islands, especially since your own butler is only a phone call away”

CLUB MED'S FINOLHU VILLAS, GASFINOLHU ISLAND, MALDIVES If you think this is going to be just another Club Med overrun by noisy families and the occasional rowdy group of backpackers, think again. The only thing Finolhu Villas shares with Club Med is half a name and the same stress-free, (almost) all-inclusive price policy that makes ordering multiple caipirinhas a guilt-free experience. Given that it’s a hotspot for honeymooners who prefer to shack up in their overwater villas or enjoy intimate beachfront dinners, if you plan to make use of the resort’s gym, ’—ęȱ—’¢ȱ™˜˜•ȱŠ—ȱ˜‘Ž›ȱŠŒ’•’’Žœǰ ¢˜žȂ••ȱ™›ŽĴȱ¢ȱ–žŒ‘ȱ‘ŠŸŽ ‘Ž– Š•• ˜ yourself. In fact, you’ll feel more like a guest on one of Richard Branson’s private islands, especially since your own butler is only a phone call away should you need anything, from booking an excursion (parasailing, snorkelling, daytripping to the mainland) to another caipirinha (hey, you’re on holidays!). If you can clear an afternoon out of your “busy” schedule for the Club Med Spa By Ila, the Crystal Healing Face Therapy does wonders for skin in need of a break from sunscreen, or you can watch marine life ‘›˜ž‘ȱ‘ŽȱĚȱ˜˜›Ȃœȱ•Šœœ ™Š—Ž• while the masseuse works their magic. Ah, island life… @ clubmed.com.au

BREAK STUFF The North Malé Atoll, home to Finolhu Villas, has some of the world’s best surf spots. These creatively named ones are just a scenic boat ride away

COKES: Found alongside the island that’s home to a Coca-Cola plant. CHICKENS: Right off an island once known only for its poultry. SULTANS: Big or small, these waves are always fit for royalty. NINJAS: Named because this spot’s breaks are popular with Japanese surfers. HONKY’S: Named after its earliest and most frequent visitor, Sydney expat Tony “Honky” Hinde. PASTA POINT: An Italian resort once located near this private surf spot would dump leftover noodles in the ocean.

“Foodies are heading down south for more than just a great enchilada” HOTEL EMMA

BEST BEIGNETS according to KIM KARDASHIAN:

Not so long ago, Mexican cuisine was San Antonio’s only schtick, but with the ongoing expansion of the Pearl Brewery complex – a hub of restaurants, bars, retail and even a farmers’ market – foodie travellers are heading down south for more than just a great enchilada. At Pearl Brewery, there’s Cured, the place for charcuterie; Green, the hippest vegetarian spot in town; and Supper, seasonal produce done really well at the painfully cool Hotel Emma. Venture beyond Pearl to the famous San Antonio River Walk, where places like The Esquire Tavern and Ocho at Hotel Havana have done a good job of drawing locals into what was previously a tourists-only strip. There’s a thriving art scene and worthy photo opps, too (see: the historic Alamo), but if we’re completely honest, the food alone is worth the trip. thehotelemma.com HOTEL EMMA

LINGERIE’S HARMFUL EFFECTS HELLO, E JEAN, My boyfriend had been asking me if I owned any racy underwear, so the other evening I surprised him in a sexy corset, stockings, etc. But the night didn’t go as planned. He  ŠœȱŽę—’Ž•¢ȱœž›™›’œŽǰȱŠ—ȱ‘Žȱ seemed to like it; but he soon began saying he “didn’t feel well” and his “stomach pain felt like nerves”, and, well, that was that for the night. The next morning, he didn’t even make a move to seduce me before breakfast – which he always does when he stays over. But he did compliment me on the “plain” T-shirt and undies I was wearing. Had he been intimidated the night before by the beauty of my lingerie? Or overwhelmed? Frankly, I have no idea.

WEIGHT OF THE WORLD DEAR E JEAN, A year ago, I got a great new job and moved to a new city. I’m very happy with my new life except for one thing: I can’t stop eating. It began with consuming small extras at meals. Now I overeat regularly, to the point of bursting. Even when I feel full, even when I feel sick, I continue to binge on sugary, unhealthy foods. When I come home, I go straight to the pantry and pillage, eating bags and bags of junk food. I’ve tried everything to stop – exercise groups, meal plans, hiding the food – and I’m successful for a day or two, but then go back to gorging. •ŽŠœŽ ‘Ž•™Ƿ ȂŸŽ Š• Š¢œ ‹ŽŽ— œ•’–ǰ ‹ž because of my binge eating I’ve gained 7kg in a very short time.

THE MAN IS OUT THERE DEAR E JEAN, I don’t mean this as a pathetic “poor me” question, but how do I come to terms with being alone for the rest of my life? How do I stop hoping that one day it will happen? I’m turning 30 this month


?

I’m madly in love and have never been so happy. There’s just one problem. I also have a chance to move to New York, something I’ve always dreamed of. My boyfriend doesn’t want to move. Do I choose the man it took me forever to find or the city I’ve always dreamed of?
