NO LIGHTS NO LYCRA TAKING OVER SYDNEY

The story of No Lights No Lycra is a simple but remarkable one. In 2009, two Melbourne dance students, who felt the stresses of study and work and life in general, created a space in which these little problems could be shook off; where people could come and just dance free of inhibition, completely losing themselves to the music. There would be no teacher, no steps to learn… and, of course, no lights and no lycra. In their words, they created “a daggy, non-pretentious place to completely... read more

BEAUTY NEWS: NEW FACES

!There’s nothing a beauty editor likes more than guessing who will be the new face of a cosmetic or fragrance. Sometimes it’s an obvious choice (the Osbourne femmes for MAC) and sometimes we wish someone would dare (choose gorgeous Ita Buttrose for the perfect long wearing coral lipstick) and sometimes we get carried away with ourselves (the cast of Jersey Shore for fake tan and hair wefts perhaps). This month has seen the beauty bees buzzing about the following new guard. Good choices. GEORGIO... read more

EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE: ELEANOR DUNLOP, ‘ROUGH SIDE OF TOWN’

TOP 10 BEST MOMENTS OF THE 2014 OSCARS

Because the ceremony itself clocked up a running time of seven and a half hours (just an estimate, we didn’t actually count), and because it is a scientific fact that you have the attention span of a toothbrush (about as much of a “scientific fact” as Matthew McConaughey’s “gratitude reciprocates” claim, anyway), we have watched and broken down the broadcast of the 86th Academy Awards so that you don’t have to.

Presenting our top 10 best moments... read more

WATCH: CARA DELEVINGNE LETS LOOSE AT STELLA MCCARTNEY

Walking the runway in Paris is serious business…unless you’re Cara Delevingne. The British model has a reputation for antics both on the runway and off it, and at Stella McCartney’s presentation yesterday, Delevingne took the opportunity to close the show with a literal hop, skip and a jump.

During the final walk, Delevingne and her model BFF Joan Smalls kicked up their heels to the smooth sounds of Soul II Soul’s ‘Keep on Moving’, while clad in cosy looks... read more

KLAXONS ANNOUNCE ALBUM DETAILS

For many (read: me), the word ‘Klaxons’ alone has the power to instantly summons up a tidal wave of glow sticks and neon paint and tight pants and basically the very embodiment of the word ‘cringe’ that is tied to pretty much everything we (read: I) touched/wore in 2007. It’s safe to say, then, that the British group’s nu-ravey debut, Myths of the Near Future, has not aged incredibly well, despite how much love we had for it at the time of its release.

ARCTIC MONKEYS DROP VIDEO FOR ‘ARABELLA’

!The Arctic Monkeys got so cool so gradually that many of us didn’t even notice it happen. I mean, they were never uncool (at least according to the British press who pretty much fapped over every move the Sheffield group has made), but when the hell did that pimply pack of kids with bad haircuts turn into such badasses? Seriously. Before… ... read more
