We took one fabulous dress and persuaded four very different, well-known Canberra identities to model it in the name of Frocktober, the month-long awareness campaign for ovarian cancer. Snapper-to-the-stars SILAS BROWN got a page of lovely photos. For the rest of October, the dress (and the opportunity to have...
TWENTY-something sisters Carla and Emma Papas, from Fadden, created a healthy food blog late last year that is attracting huge interest from all around the world. LAURA EDWARDS has the story.
