ELLE (Australia) - - Contents -

Go­ing on the set of Wonder Wo­man to meet Gal Gadot (“Wait­ing For Gadot”, p56), Am­s­ter­dam-based Aussie writer EL­LIE PACKER was pleas­antly sur­prised. “She was the most hum­ble, lovely and gen­uinely warm celebrity I’ve ever in­ter­viewed,” Packer says. And the ac­tress is pretty kick-ass, too. “She said to me, ‘If we all had a bit of Wonder Wo­man in­side us, the world would be a bet­ter place.’ It wasn’t long af­ter Trump had won the US elec­tion, so I said, ‘Can’t you be the next pres­i­dent?’ And she replied, ‘I can’t. I’m an im­mi­grant!’” There are plenty of things that can wreak havoc on a fash­ion shoot: tor­ren­tial rain, gale-force winds, fad­ing light, an MIA model… Un­for­tu­nately for makeup artist

NATASHA SEVERINO, she faced all this and more for our “Daily Grind” story (p106). “Af­ter hav­ing hair and makeup done at the be­gin­ning of the shoot, we weath­ered the el­e­ments for the first pic. Then we had to re­set – ev­ery­one was soaked. But we had to roll with it and laugh all the way. It was a chal­leng­ing shoot, but the job got done.” ELLE’S act­ing beauty and fit­ness di­rec­tor SARA MCLEAN has never been very mys­ti­cally minded, but af­ter ex­plor­ing the emerg­ing world of crystals in skin­care (“Game Of Stones”, p148), she may just be com­ing around. “One thing I learned is that car­ry­ing a moon­stone in your bra helps you har­ness your in­ner god­dess and charges your fem­i­nine en­ergy,” she says. “I’ve been do­ing it for a few weeks and while I’m not com­pletely convinced, I do feel a sud­den urge to wield a base­ball bat and don a yel­low Roberto Cavalli dress. Strange.”
