ED’S LET­TER

Sunday Herald Sun - Stellar - - Contents -

It’s the clas­sic scene that ro­man­tic come­dies are made of – the makeover. From the good-girl-turned-vamp ren­o­va­tion Olivia New­ton-john un­der­goes in the fi­nal mo­ments of Grease to Julia Roberts’s vamp-turned-good-girl me­ta­mor­pho­sis in Pretty Woman, there’s some­thing about a cin­e­matic trans­for­ma­tion that both en­ter­tains and in­spires. Here at Stel­lar, we are firm be­liev­ers in the power of a good makeover (se­ri­ously, have you ever seen this week’s cover star Lisa Old­field look bet­ter?), but are also of the view that the most fas­ci­nat­ing rein­ven­tions are more than skin deep. Whether it’s mu­si­cian Pete Mur­ray ad­mit­ting that he felt it was time to shake things up and take a new ap­proach to his work, or Corinne Grant’s mid-life ca­reer change from co­me­dian to prac­tis­ing lawyer, the courage it takes to rein­vent one­self is a re­cur­ring theme in to­day’s is­sue. As for­mer Olympic swim­mer turned mum-of-three Sa­man­tha Ri­ley tells Stel­lar of her new life: “I feel like I’ve done enough and it’s time to move on. It’s good to know when the time is right.” Sar­rah
