Damien Woolnough has announced his departure from L’Officiel Australia literally one month and one day since he kicked off his role as editor.
Damien lost his position at ELLE Australia to take up what he thought was his “dream job” at L’Officiel, but now believes that the internationally recognised title is “not the right size and cut” for him, mUmBRELLA reports.
“I love the brand (but we’ve all made the mistake of buying something just because of the label) and wish the Australian title well in finding someone better suited to their unique style,” he said in a statement.
Damien revealed that he has learned a lot from this experience and is now vowing to search “for a more flattering fit”. He said, “This was to be my dream job but today I’m making room for new dreams.” (more…)
Teresa Palmer hosted a live Twitter Q&A today to promote her new film, The Choice, revealing plenty about her personal life in the process. Because people can never hold back asking the deep stuff, the model-turned-actress spilled the beans on things like love at first sight, singing in the shower and working with Nicholas Sparks. Fellow Aussie actress Phoebe Tonkin even chimed in, asking her pal what rap music she gets down to.
Check out what we learned about this Aussie star on the rise below.
1. She’s a dog lover
She has a Shitzu named Luna, a Pit bull named Kohda and a German Shepard named Cato. Her dog also gets knocked up in the new film, so that’s fitting.
2. She’s totally nostalgic, just like us
Her favourite three movies of all time are Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo & Juliet, The Labyrinth and Now and Then. We’d marry her based on this if she wasn’t spoken for already.
3. She believes in love at first sight
“I believe it’s certainly possible to feel that soulful loving connection at first sight, rare but it exists!” We’ll have to take your word for it, Teresa.
4. She’s a Star Wars fan
She wants to see it by the end of the year, and, with a ridic schedule, a child and only two weeks left of 2015, that’s a pretty epic commitment to make. May the force be with you.
5. She sings in the shower
The Kinks’ “All Day and All of The Night” is her go-to tune.
6. She’s great company
Her perfect date “would be something fun like laser skirmish followed by ordering pizza in and watching a documentary together”. Heck, count us in.
7. She dreams big
Actors and actresses she’d still love to work with are Cate Blanchett, Alfonso Cuaron, Joaquin Phoenix and Woody Allen.
8. She’s a risk taker
The most difficult choice she ever made was when she had to decide between moving to Los Angeles to pursue her career or stay in Adelaide, get married and continue her teaching degree like an average human.
9. She’s full of motherly bones
The first thing she thought about this morning was, “I hope that we get in to the preschool that we want for [son] Bodhi”
10. She likes rap
Not only does she refer to herself as “Fresh Palmer” but she also admits to liking “Acknowledge” and “Hold U” by Masta Ace.
It’s literally been less than two weeks since The Bachelorette runner-up Michel Turnbull and mother-of-one Katrina Vincentannounced their relationship, however, the pair have already called it quits.
While photos of them together were removed from both their Instagrams earlier this week, including their Woman’s Day exclusive, the pair had kept mum about where their relationship was at. Prying fans prompted Katrina to speak up, revealing she’s no longer with Michael because he didn’t want to be involved with a mother.
“Ok so for all of you who have been asking… Michael and I are no longer together,” she wrote on Instagram. “He end [sic] up deciding he doesn’t want to date a person with a child. I am embarrassed and humiliated, I wish I didn’t trust him so easily. Oh well you always learn from your mistakes.” (more…)
Miranda Kerr’s nude January 2016 cover for Harper’s Bazaar Australia has been pulled from Coles shelves as it was deemed inappropriate for customers.
The cover shows off the Aussie supermodel’s assets as she leans back on a balcony wearing nothing but designer heels, with Yahoo7 Lifestyle believing that it was removed from the grocery store’s stands because of internal criticism. “We didn’t think the cover was appropriate for our stores so the decision was made,” a Coles spokesman told the publication.
Honestly, we’re not totally surprised. Coles reels in customers of all ages and relationship statuses, plus, people can be especially on-edge this time of year and might find the image offensive. Not everyone, but some. (more…)
With all the presents that celebrities, models and Instagram stars get gifted on the daily, we’re guessing it would be a little hard to keep track of everything you received.
Bar Refaeli has learned the hard way that you should always acknowledge the presents that you’re given, after being arrested by Israeli authorities on Thursday for not reporting things like, you know, free luxury accommodation and Range Rovers, among other legal conflicts.
AFP reports that Bar and her mother, Zipora, were questioned and arrested for allegedly evading taxes on millions of dollars of income from abroad by lying about the model’s residency, as well as receiving presents and “celebrity discounts”, which went unreported. (more…)
