Charlize Theron enjoyed lunch with friends and her mother Gerda at Catalina in Sydney’s Rose Bay on Monday, but all her attention was focused on one person: her adopted son, Jackson. The actress is in the country for Mad Max: Fury Road reshoots, and managed to slip under the radar when she arrived last week — perhaps the influx of Hollywood’s funniest people, such as Will Ferrell and the cast of Anchorman 2, and Ben Stiller and Kristen Wiig, helped — but her cover was blown because she was spotted by media who were attended a Foxtel launch event. Mad Max: Fury Road reshoots will reportedly go for three weeks (the primary shoot took place in Namibia) and leading man Tom Hardy will apparently arrive in Sydney this week.
Charlize Theron popped up at the AFI Film Festival's premiere of Lone Survivor on Wednesday night to show support for her friends Mark Wahlberg and screenwriter Peter Berg. The actress skipped the red carpet for the premiere but happily mingled with Mark, whom she co-starred with in The Yards and The Italian Job, and Peter, whom she worked with on Hancock. She also chatted with new dad Emilie Hirsch, who co-stars with Mark in the new military drama.
During a Q&A panel after the film's premiere, Mark went off on actors who compare their physical training for films to what actual soldiers go through. "For actors to sit there and talk about 'oh I went to SEAL training'? I don't give a f*ck what you did," Mark said. "You don't do what these guys did. For somebody to sit there and say my job was as difficult as being in the military? How f*ck*ng dare you, while you sit in a makeup chair for two hours." Mark's latest will hit cinemas early next year.
The intricate up 'dos that we frequently see on the red carpet can seem impossible to re-create, but if you look closely, even the most complicated looks can be broken down into easy-to-follow steps or re-created in a slightly simpler way. To help inspire you to get creative with your hair, we've picked out some of the coolest modern up 'dos seen on some of our favourite stars, from messy twists to punky coils. Just learn a few simple tricks (and possibly enlist the help of a friend), and you'll be showing off you own killer up 'dos in no time.
There ain't no party like a Ferragamo party, because a Ferragamo party has swarms of celebrities stomping its red carpet! Famous faces like Demi Moore and Nicole Richie stepped out to celebrate the designer, and they brought their best looks with them. Check out the best looks of the night, including Charlize Theron's heart-stopping pixie, when you keep clicking!
Meanwhile, Gwen Stefani debuted a shimmering, personality-packed gunmetal grey gown covered in fringe, and Freida Pinto showed off an embellished nude gown. Amy Adams took the shorter route — literally — in her flared navy Elie Saab Haute Couture dress accessorised with jewellery from Marina B.
When they're not posing up a storm in front of the lense, these big-time models are pursuing their other interests — and believe us, they have many. One of the world's most iconic faces (and bodies), Kate Moss, is adding a new gig to her supermodel CV — contributing fashion editor for British Vogue. Moss will team up with the current crew at Vogue, including stylists Lucinda Chambers, Kate Phelan and Francesca Burns, to turn out fashion editorial for the magazine. She'll also be responsible for casting models and picking photographers.
WWD reports that her first story will debut in an upcoming Spring issue. "I am absolutely delighted that Kate is going to work with us in this new role," said the magazine's editor in chief Alexandra Shulman. "Her undoubtedly brilliant sense of style, depth of fashion knowledge, and understanding of what makes a wonderful image will be exciting to see on the pages of British Vogue. I am really looking forward to working with her on ideas." And after appearing on the cover of British Vogue a grand total of 33 times, we're sure she'll have plenty of those.
But it's not just Moss who is busy moonlighting away from the camera. Fact: multi-talented model Georgia May Jagger is also a deft denim designer, Natalia Vodianova is a philanthropist and Lara Bingle has tried her hand at acting, designing and more! From fashion design to photography, styling and acting, you'll be surprised at what these gorgeous girls get up to in their spare time — because evidently being a supermodel just isn't enough!

Hollywood is full of strong, powerful women, so it's only natural that we celebrate it. And Variety did just that. Stars like Kerry Washington, Jessica Alba, and Charlize Theron were all in attendance at the publication's fifth annual Power of Women event in LA. Check out all the A-listers in attendance when you click on.
Some of the most impactful women in Hollywood, from studio heads to A-list actresses, came together in Beverly Hills at today's Variety Power of Women event to celebrate good works. Kerry Washington, Amy Poehler, Nicole Kidman, Charlize Theron, Jennifer Hudson, and Elizabeth Banks were all honoured for their charitable efforts on behalf of a range of good causes, including AIDS prevention and heart disease.
Amy Poehler was given a Lifetime Impact Award for her partnership with Worldwide Orphans Foundation. She gave a powerful and occasionally tearful acceptance speech, but couldn't resist injecting some of her signature humour into her address. She told attendees that if they took away anything from the event, it should be that "giving to charity is good for your skin and makes your ass smaller."
On a more serious note, Nicole Kidman, who was recognized for her work with UN Women, credited her mother's independent streak with sparking her commitment to the cause. "I was raised by a feminist mother. She said, 'Never be frightened of using the 'F' word."
Charlize Theron, founder of the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Program, similarly took the opportunity to honour her own mum, who joined her at the luncheon. The actress was brought to tears as she dedicated the tribute to her, thanking her for both teaching her how to be a "decent human being," and "for turning me into a p*ssy every time I talk about you."
Jennifer Hudson looked every bit the bombshell in a long-sleeved white dress, accented with an old-school brooch, while Kerry Washington was a bit spottier in black and gold polka dots and Christian Louboutin heels. Nicole Kidman was feeling the same colour scheme, showing up in a modified shirt-dress, and Charlize Theron pulled a Jennifer in a high-necked white mini.
Jessica Alba strayed from the shade trends, but barely, rocking a strapless coated houndstooth dress from Dior. Each woman's look was unique yet complementary, almost making it harder to have a favourite. Still, it has to be done. Let us know which dress is your favourite by voting below.
