It’s said that light­ning never strikes twice, but Aus­tralian em­broi­derer So­nia Lyne would no doubt ar­gue oth­er­wise, hav­ing lost her par­ents in sep­a­rate road ac­ci­dents – seven years apart – af­ter both her fa­ther and mother fell asleep be­hind the wheel. But her story in today’s How I Make It Work (page 26) is not a sad one – quite the con­trary. Tri­umph­ing over ad­ver­sity and nav­i­gat­ing life’s more chal­leng­ing chap­ters is a re­cur­ring theme among many of the re­silient and quietly de­fi­ant women fea­tured in this week’s Stel­lar, in­clud­ing cover star Madeleine West, World Cup tele­vi­sion an­chor Lucy Zelić and teenage ad­ven­turer Jade Hameis­ter. COVER STORY 08 “Im­per­fec­tions are to be cel­e­brated” Six young chil­dren, a shift in her re­la­tion­ship and a star­ring role in a new tele­vi­sion show. Things are in­tense for Madeleine West, who none­the­less tells Stel­lar that she never ex­pected life to be per­fect.

FEA­TURES 12 “I didn’t change the way I speak” Lucy Zelić was sav­aged by crit­ics for her World Cup pro­nun­ci­a­tions, but the pre­sen­ter, now hap­pily in love, says it will take more than that to bring her down.

14 More than just a pretty face Once dis­re­garded as some­one who was just win­ning roles due to her good looks, ac­tor Olivia Munn has proven she won’t be shamed or sex­u­ally ob­jec­ti­fied.

16 “It was bru­tal – but I never gave up” Teen ex­plorer Jade Hameis­ter has three world records, a de­but book and sassy come­backs for her in­ter­net trolls. Now she’s ready to em­bark on a new mis­sion. REG­U­LARS 04 Car­rie Bick­more pon­ders how to an­swer life’s tough (and awk­ward) ques­tions. 06 Q&A Car­rie Un­der­wood: “I’m South­ern – I take my bighair cues from Dolly Par­ton.” 18 Fash­ion Ac­tor Ash­leigh Brewer re­turns home from her LA base and mod­els for Stel­lar. 22 Beauty Why an­tiox­i­dant sk­in­care is cru­cial for Aussies. 23 Liv­ing Neale Whi­taker re­flects on the power of pat­tern. 24 Travel Take to the seas with a tai­lored short-stay cruise. 25 Os­car Cainer Stars. 26 Life ad­vice So­nia Lyne on em­broi­der­ing a liveli­hood. Renowned chef Yotam Ot­tolenghi is rein­vent­ing food for the home chef in his new cook­book.
