The first issue of Playboy was published in

1953, when Mr. Hefner was 27, publishing

SOCIAL

the first photos of nude female centrefolds.

He was credited with leading a sexual

revolution INSTAGRAM

but at the same time, others

criticised him for placing men at the center

of said KARDASHIAN revolution and TRENDING73

objectifying women.

He fought for reproductive rights and he

claimed that the magazine contained far

more than centerfolds. In fact, Playboy

influenced culture, and claims that people

actually bought the magazine to read it are

only partly a joke considering it also

specialized in long interviews with the

likes of Fidel Castro or Frank Sinatra.

Is fizzy milk a new thing? Well, it could be about to hit

supermarket shelves to boost milk sales.

It comes as millions of consumers are ditching cow’s milk

for non-dairy milks like almond and coconut. Now

producers are triying to fight for dairy.

Fruit juice mixed with milk and then

carbonised - it will have a pink colour, apparently.

What if you could get your 5-a-day by

simply eating a cake.? Well, thanks to the

work of Japanese chef Mitsuki Moriyasu,

you now can. The ‘Vegedeco Salad’ is

esentially decorated vegetables disguised as

a cake.

Vegetables are blended together with

soybean flour to create a sponge effect. For

the decorative icing, even more

vegetables are blended with cream cheese

or tofu.

The latest food trend poses a threat to one of Britain’s

longest standing traditions: tea.

It sounds unappetising but the beverage has already

proven extremely popular in Taiwan, where it was

created.

Cream cheese and evaporated milk are mixed until

it begins to froth and then poured into the iced tea

beverage, acting as a fluffy topping.

Si viste Gossip Girl (o finges que no la viste), seguro que te suena Ed Westwick, el

británico que interpreta a Chuck Bass. Ahora podrás verlo en White Gold, donde

interpreta a Vincent Swan un vendedor de ventanas en los años 80. La

primera temporada de la serie ya se encuentra disponible en Netflix España.

Las cosas parecen irle de fábula también en

lo personal. La novia de la vida real de Ed

Westwick se llama Jessica Michél Serfaty,

una modelo que apareció en America’s Next

Top Model. Ambos suelen subir fotos a

Instagram y expresar su amor con mensajes

románticos en las redes y ahora han

protagonizado una sesión de fotos obra de

Kate and Bare juntos, inspirada en Bonnie

and Clyde.

Sus similitudes con el chico del

Upper East Side, son

innegables: un

narcisista con un estilo

impecable, la faceta de

mujeriego y su afición por

llevar su vida al límite,

saltándose todas las normas.

Tell us a little about BLEND

BLEND. opened its doors a few months ago,

serving fresh and easy food in a laidback

ambiance. We have an indoor and outdoor

bar with big TV screens, many lounge seats,

heavenly coffee and amazing drinks.

What are the plans for the winter

season?

We’ll be open all year round and also available

for private event booking, so we are getting

ready for a cozy winter season. We’ll add some

nice winter dishes to the menu & cover up our

terrace (partly). We already have hundreds of

pillows and blankets to chill and lounge, so put

on your piyama an get over here :-).

Cuéntanos un poco acerca de BLEND

BLEND abriò sus puertas hace unos meses,

sirviendo comida fresca en un ambiente

relajado. Tenemos un bar interior y una

maravillosa terraza con grandes pantallas

de televisión y cómodos sofás donde poder

disfrutar un buen café o bebida espirituales.

Qué tipo de cocina ofreces?

Nuestra cocina:fusión de cocina

mediterránea y asiática todo ello obra de

nuestro increíble chef.Servimos una deliciosa

comida relajada y saludable así como

opciones vegetarianas y sin gluten.

Trabajamos con un reducido equipo,el

cual,especialmente nuestro chef,está

encantado de tomar tiempo para pedidos

especiales.

Muchos clientes se sienten como en casa en

Blend tanto que no dudan en llegar hasta

nuestra cocina abierta a high-five nuestro

chef y tener una charla con él.

Nuestra comida es.....tienes que probarlo

para creerlo;Nos encanta ver volver todos los

platos vacíos.

¿De dónde sacaste la inspiración para

los batidos y cócteles?

En realidad mi hija de 19 años vino con

los batidos,al igual que los sandwiches de

arco Iris. Tenemos familias, niñas, parejas

e incluso trabajadores de la construcción

que vienen a probar nuestros milkshakes de

fantasía y nos encanta ver todas esas caras

felices cuando llegan sus bebidas.

Nos mantenemos al día con las nuevas

tendencias y tratamos de mejorarnos a

nosotros mismos constantemente. Nos

encanta escuchar de nuestros clientes

como no se encontraron y como han

experimentado Blend.

What kind of kitchen do you offer?

Cuál es son los planes para la temporada de

invierno?

Our kitchen is a mix of mediterranean and

asian food, all freshly made by our amazing

chef. We serve some delicious comfort food,

but also lots of healthy dishes, as well as

vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options. We

work with a small team and especially when

it’s not too busy our chef loves to take time

for special orders. Many customers feel so at

home at BLEND that they walk up to our open

kitchen to high-five our chef and have a chat

with him about the food.The thing with food

is, you have to taste it to believe it. We love

to see all the empty plates going back to the

kitchen.

Where did you get the inspiration for

the milkshakes and cocktails?

Actually my 19 year old daughter came up with

the milkshakes, just as the rainbow sandwiches.

We have families, girls, couples and even

construction workers coming in to try our

fantasy milkshakes and we love to see all these

happy faces when their drinks arrive. We

keep up with new trends and try to improve

ourselves constantly. We love to hear from

customers how they found us and how they’ve

experienced BLEND.

Estaremos abiertos todo el año y también

disponibles para la reserva de eventos

privados, por lo que nos estamos preparando

para una acogedora temporada de invierno.

Vamos a añadir algunos buenos platos de

invierno al menú y cubrir nuestra terraza

(en parte). Ya tenemos cientos de cojines y

mantas para relajarse y descansar, así que

pónganse sus pijamas y vengan aquí :-).

CARBS

Se acabaron las dietas restrictivas en

las que tienes que eliminar por completo

algunos alimentos. Se acabó el tener

que contar calorías y limitar tu libertad

para comer fuera por miedo a fallar con

“tus macros”. Es posible comer de forma

saludable y de acuerdo con tus objetivos

utilizando la herramienta de control

visual para el control de calorías que

te propongo a continuación. A la hora

de configurar tu plato de comida sólo

necesitas memorizar cuatro posiciones

de tu propia mano que vamos a utilizar

como medida. Teniendo en cuenta que el

tamaño de tu mano está en relación con

el de tu cuerpo (salvo excepciones), la

convierte en una medida excelente. Así

funciona:

HIDRATOS

No more restrictive diets in which you

can´t eat your favorite foods. No more

“calorie counting” and not being able to eat

out just because you don´t know “if it fits

your macros”. It´s possible to eat healthy

and doing it according to your goals

using this portion control guide that I am

showing you next. When setting your meal,

you will just need to remember your hand

on 4 different positions, as we are going to

use it as a measurement tool since your

hand is proportionate to your body and

you always have it with you ;) This is how

it works.

PROTEIN

A cupped-hand as a serving for carbs:

cereals, pasta, rice, bread, legumes and

fruits fruits.

1 cupped-hand sized portion for women

and 2 for men.

FATS

A thumb as a fat serving

1 thumb-sized portion for women and 2 for

men.

PROTEÍNA

La palma de tu mano como medida para

alimentos ricos en proteína: carnes,

pescados, huevos, derivados lácteos o

fuentes vegetales.

1 palma para mujeres y 2 para hombres.

La palma colmada como medida para

alimentos ricos en hidratos: pastas,

cereales, pan, arroz, legumbres y frutas.

1 palma colmada para mujeres y 2 para

hombres.

GRASAS

A serving of protein rich foods (meat, fish,

eggs and dairy) = 1 palm.

1 palm-sized portion for women and 2 for

men.

VEGGIES

Depending on how your body responds,

hunger and satiety levels, you can modify

portions to make them fit your goal.

Remember this is just a starting point,

but if you want to go to the next level with

your nutrition, feel free to ask me through

según tus sensaciones de hambre,

alcornoques, acebuches y pinos, todos árboles autóctonos. El hotel tiene 24

habitaciones dobles y 3 Junior Suites todas ellas espaciosas y decoradas con un

gusto exquisito.

Otro de los aspectos que distinguen a Montenmedio son sus instalaciones para

El campo de golf de Montenmedio

(6.260 metros, 18 hoyos y par 72) es único y

diferente de todos los campos españoles. Ni una sola

Construcción afecta a sus calles, está rodeado de bosques

de acebuches, alcornoques y pinos, y ofrece impresionantes

vistas sobre el atlántico y sobre pueblos blancos como Vejer de

la frontera, Benalup y Medina, también, sobre la costa africana

de Tánger y Espartel. Jugar sus 18 hoyos es siempre divertido y

sorprendente: ciervos, conejos, patos y otros animales acompañan

al jugador a lo largo de su suave recorrido.

La Escuela de Golf Montenmedio ofrece cursos de golf

dirigidos tanto a principiantes que quieren aprender a

jugar como a los jugadores más experimentados que

buscan mejorar su juego. Hay diferentes cursos

Diseñados específicamente para cada nivel,

con la cantidad justa de teoría y práctica

dependiendo del jugador o del

conocimiento previo del grupo y

sus capacidades.

En Montenmedio se

aprecia el arte en armonía

con su entorno natural en la

exposición permanente de arte contemporáneo que

muestra la obra de los escultores contemporáneos y

de artistas de todo el mundo. La Fundación NMAC invita

a diferentes Artistas cada año para la creación de proyectos

Set in 500 hectares of an exceptional

nature area, offering an extensive variety

of native flora and fauna species, La

Dehesa Montenmedio is located in Cádiz

province close to the best beaches of

Zahara de los Atunes, Barbate, Conil and

Sancti Petri.

Situated in Vejer de la Frontera municipality,

Dehesa Montenmedio Golf and Country Club

offers impressive views over the Atlantic and

traditional “white villages” including Benalup and

Medina Sidonia. In the midst of this privileged

setting of protected nature areas, Montenmedio is

the perfect place to enjoy direct and person contact

with nature. Visitors taking a guided horse carriage

ride or walk through the nature reserve can enjoy the

great variety of Mediterranean flora and fauna found

in the area.

As to be expected in such a stunning geographic

location, Hotel Hacienda Montenmedio is an old

Andalucian farmhouse surrounded by cork, wild

olive and pine trees, all native to the area. The hotel

has 24 double rooms and three junior suites, all

spacious and decorated with exquisite taste.

Another key feature of Montenmedio is its amenities

for sports and equestrian competition – the latter,

among the most comprehensive in the Europe.

Mainly in four categories: show jumping, dressage,

carriage driving and eventing.

The Dehesa Montenmedio equestrian centre has

been designed to host all kinds of international and

national competitions and Spanish championships.

One major event is the Sunshine Tour (Hípico del

Sol) for show jumping and dressage held in February

and March and involving 450 riders from 46

participating countries, with 1,500 horses. You can

also bring your own horse to Montenmedio to stay

for a period and train.

The clubhouse restaurant offers a relaxed ambience

on both its wooden-floored terraces, where after

a round of golf guests can taste a succulent dish

of Mediterranean cuisine prepared using local

products, plunge into the pool while being served a

drink beside the sunbed, savour a coffee or cold beer

and, above all else, simply enjoy the peace and quiet

of a wonderful setting in the midst of nature.

The Golf Course

The Montenmedio golf course (6,260 metres, 18 holes

and par-72) is exceptional and different from all

other Spanish courses. Not a single building affects

its fairways, it is surrounded by wild olive, cork and

pine tree forests, and it offers impressive views over

the Atlantic and such traditional “white villages” as

Vejer de la Frontera, Benalup and Medina, as well as

the African coast near Tangier and Espartel. Playing

its 18 holes is always enjoyable and a bit of a surprise:

deer, rabbits, ducks and other animals accompany

golfers on their easygoing rounds.

The Montenmedio Golf Academy offers courses for

both beginners who want to learn to play and more

experienced players looking to fine-tune their games.

There are different courses designed for players of

all levels, with just the right balance of theory and

practice depending on the player or group’s previous

knowledge and ability.

The NMAC Foundation

At Montenmedio, art is appreciated in harmony

with the natural surroundings in a permanent

exhibition of modern art that showcases the work of

contemporary sculptures and artists from around

the world. The NMAC Foundation invites different

artists each year to create specific projects based on

the area’s history, landscape and materials.

Set up as a hub of interaction, in a social, cultural

and territorial context, the foundation is committed

to supporting contemporary creators of specific

projects that encourage and develop dialogue and

understanding in society through art.

The NMAC Foundation’s objectives include

providing an impetus to young artists who are

beginning to stand out in the artistic panorama, and

offering them the opportunity of exhibiting their

work alongside internationally renowned artists,

while at the same time extending a bridge to artists

who have never had the chance of showing their work

in Spain.

Running parallel to artistic creation, the NMAC

Foundation dedicates a great deal of energy to an

educational programme for students of all levels,

and for teachers, to bring them up to date with

latest contemporary art trends and international

artistic creativity. This teaching programme is now

considered a standard-bearer, with educational

material for all levels and an exclusive online portal

dedicated to cultural education ( www.nmaceduca.

org). In recent years approximately 15,000 students

from throughout Cádiz province have benefited from

this programme.

The NMAC believes education is an important tool

in strengthening this philosophy and spreading

the word that culture and art are key elements in

establishing the values of a society committed to free

and cutting-edge thought.

I was fortunate enough to walk for Giles Deacon this season. But why was I the only

transgender model to walk at all this season at London Fashion Week?

The first transgender contestant to feature on Britain’s Next Top Model, Talulah Eve,

wrote an open letter About Transphobia and Tokenism in Fashion.

Several trans models did walk at New York Fashion Week, however Talulah calls on

the fashion industry to make changes supporting diversity so that it will become the

norm and not the exception.

“The answer to change isn’t tokenism: casting one model from a marginalized group,

or doing a one-off show that highlights a marginalized group. It’s by regularly

championing diversity, by making it the norm”.

There’s so much power that lies in the hands of fashion designers. Use your power to

enforce change, to embrace the beauty of

diversity. We’re forever seeing advertisements

for “fresh faces” in modeling, but what’s

really fresh about casting the same body

type, gender, ethnicity, race, age, and size

we always see on the runway?

Let’s create a fresh normality,

a fresher vision.

THE

SHAPE

OF THINGS

NOW

To celebrate its 50th birthday and its ongoing

dominance of formula 1’s hybrid era, AMG presents

this - Lewis Hamilton´s silver Arrow for the road.

62 / ABSOLUT MAGAZINE

ABSOLUT MAGAZINE / 63


In 1997, it took AMG‘s engineers just 126

days to design and build the awesome barely

street-legal CLK GTR. Two decades later, the

gestation process of the Project One hypercar

has been a more longwinded affair, and it began

with AMG’s divorce from McLaren. That split

meant that, sooner or later, Mercedes’ performance

division would have to come up with an in-house

replacement for the SLR. True, AMG GT did

accomplish its volume sales and brand-shaping

objectives, but even the GT R version - 577bhp

, 198mph - isn’t a hard-core supercar, let alone a

hypercar capable of shifting the class benchmarks.

AMG had to deliver nothing less then a black

hole of awesomeness. A machine more out rages

than even the McLaren P1 and LaFerrari, and

the ultimate fusion of combustion engine and

performance electrification, a game-changing vision

of the future harnessing all that AMG knows about

extreme, F1-bred performance engineering.

Originally known as the X1, and provisionally

dubbed AMG R50 to celebrate Affelterbach’s 50th

anniversary, the project began in late 2014, about

a year after long-time AMG man Tobias Moers

replaced Ola Källenius at the top of the Mercedes

satellite.

In early March 2017, a fiberglass model without

an interior was shown to selected customers at the

Geneva motor show. The private viewings took

place in an anonymous, cordoned-off tent on the

lawns of the high-end La Réserve hotel, where

the gun metal over black two-seated hypercar was

heralded by Moers as the next giant leap for the

high-performance automobile.

From A pool of more than 1000 applicants,

Mercedes excepted six figure deposits from 275

Wheels aren’t

pretty but offer

low weight and

drag, so they

got the nod

carefully selected friends of the house - running a

sizable Mercedes truck and bus fleet, shepherding

a flock of Maybachs and buying G 65‘s in bulk on a

regular basis must have helped your case. The price

is €2.275m Plus taxes, and just 275 will be built.

Before the first cars are delivered in early 2019, 12

pre-production Prototypes will be demolished in

EU and US crash tests.

“ as far as passive safety is concerned, we’ve pulled

out all the stops,” says Tobias Moers. “ there will

be at least four airbags - maybe six - and the

Monocoque is extremely strong.”

Shaped by Gordon Wagner, who’s recent works

include the flamboyant vision 6 concepts, Project

One is a striking piece of performance sculpture.

Less extreme than Aston’s ValKyrie and far more

track orientated and the Bugatti Chiron, X1 is

visually and in content in a similar league to the

Koenigsegg Regera and the future McLaren BP23

three-seater. The most striking feature is perhaps

the long aero fin claimed to enhance the directional

stability at very high speeds. Wide and low, the

new car is pure F1 Coke bottle in plan view, with

uncluttered flanks and low-drag wheels. Smoothly

integrated into the beautifully sculpted architecture

slim LED headlights, bigger-than-expected doors,

smaller-than-expected air takes and several active

aero elements. Upfront, we find a pair of selectively

blocked louvres; at the back, two flaps and the dual

mode wing balance lift and downforce.

Unlike the record-setting Nio EP9, which is all

purpose I know comfort, the X1 must cater for Rich

poseurs as well as for professional races. Common

to both cars (and to LaFerrari) is the blend of fixed

seats and adjustable pedals. Sounds straightforward,

but isn’t.

“ since our top managers Dieter Zetsche and Ola

Källenius are rather tall, we had to extend the

package no less than three times,” explains Moers.

“ legroom, headroom and visibility have now old

been approved by the board, at last.”

The driver can also alter the position of the steering

column and the backrests, and there are three

different seat sizes to choose from. While certain

elements of the Mercedes infotainment system look

familiar, the feed from the roof mounted reversing

camera is displayed in the rearview Mirror.

Instead of a conventional instrument cluster, AMG

opted for two LED monitors, one in front of the

driver, the other in the center stack. The quartic

steering wheel (The Austin Allegro lives on) is

equipped with two controllers; one to tweak vehicle

dynamics, the other for more prosaic functions.

Cabin space isn’t exactly abundant, but there are

door pockets, A cubbyhole for your house keys

and small recesses behind the seats; Big enough for

swimming trunks, a bikini and a couple of spare

T-shirts. The materials of choice are carbon fiber,

various metals, leather, microfiber, textile mash and

signature yellow stitching. It’s a purposeful driving

environment; minimalist in places, comprehensive

elsewhere. The detail we can’t wait to put our finger

on is the start button, which lives between the seats,

next to the window controls.

Push that button of buttons and your garage will

be transformed into a formula 1 pit in a heartbeat.

Though the 1.6-litre V6 does sound a little like the

power unit in Hamilton’s company car when revved,

it lives down the decibel Ladder - rampant blipping

of the throttle doesn’t trigger a rainstorm of paint

chips from the ceiling.

“ it certainly plays it’s own tune,” says a pensive

Moers. “ but the turbocharger still makes a lot of

noise, and the exhaust note at high revs is, well, not

quite legal yet.”

As you would imagine of a car tasked with putting

a F1 powertrain through a McDonald’s drive thru,

Project One is a highly complex animal, taking

modularity to a new level. Highlights include a steel

platform supporting a carbon fiber tub, adjustable

multi-link suspension with transverse pushrods and

a spring/damper unit replacing the anti-roll bar.

Then there’s all wheel drive with torque vectoring,

rear-wheel steering, magnesium wheels with

featherweight aero blades and no fewer than five

different calling circuits...

(engine, transmission, batteries, e-motors and

charge air).

The car wears bespoke 285/35 ZR19 (front) and

335/30 ZR20 (rear) Michelin Pilot Sport 2 tyres.

Hugging the inside of the 10 spoke wheels are gold

calipers straddling sombrero size carbon-ceramic

disc’s. The rear suspension assembly bolts to the

engine and transmission; The front suspension and

the two electric motors are supported by a compact

subframe.

Hidden beneath this striking shape are four electric

power plants. Two drive the front wheels, one is

attached to the V-6 engine via helical gears and

the last sit inside the turbo charger, where it splits

the cool compression side from the hot exhaust

element. Capable of revving to 100,000rpm, this

80kW e-motor all that illuminates turbo lag while

kicking but whenever you floor the throttle. In

F1 slang, it’s known as the MGU–H, or motor

generator unit heat. Another F1 related windfall, the

so-called MGU-K (Motor generator unit kinetic),

generates electric energy that can be stored or

passed on to feed the 120kW motor, which sits on

the combustion engines crank. Each e-motor is

governed by its own performance electronics, intern

masterminded by the central ECU.

The 1.6-litre V6 is straight out of AMG‘s brixworth

engine lab. The direct injection, single-turbo motor

is by and large A blueprint of the unit installed

in the AMG Petronas Wo8 F1 car. While the four

overhead camshaft are still driven by spur wheels,

The F1 engines pneumatic valve springs have been

swapped for mechanical actuators. Due to the lower

octane rating of normal super unleaded fuel the rev

limit is capped at 11,000rpm, Which still marks a

world record for a road car engine. At 603bhp, this

small displacement V6 is almost as potent as the

6.0-litre V12 that powers the S 65 AMG.

Since each of the three electric motors is good for

161bhp, The grand total adds up to 1086bhp - and

that’s before you call upon the 48bhp (1134bhp

total) Freed in overboost mode. While an F1 engine

must be rebuilt after four or five races, it’s tamer

Road sibling is good for 30,000 miles.

Affelterbach sources suggests a kurb weight of

around 1200kg, which is remarkable in view of the

extra bulk - 100kg - of the four battery packs. Add

the three e-motors and the tally climbs to 420kg.

The 0-62mph Time should be of the order of 2.6sec,

Active aero

elements aren’t

allowed in F1 but

they’re all over

Project One

and perhaps a tenth shy of the 1479bhp Chiron.

Unlike the 262mph Bugatti, the Project One is

electronically limited to 218mph. As for 0-125mph,

The current record holder is the W16 monster

from Molsheim, which gets there in under 6.5sec.

According to several sources, the AMG will better

the Bugatti on this count. Helped by and ultrafast

automated manual eight speed gearbox developed

by Xtrac, Project One can, we’re told, do the job in

well under 5.5sec. “ all this performance is worth

nothing without confidence building accessibility,”

says Moers. “ like all AMG models, Project One

is fitted with three stage stability control. So even

though the lightning fast throttle response will take

your breath away, the driver is always in charge.”

While normal e-motors rev to 15,000rpm, The

AMG version is redlined at 50,000rpm. Each frontwheel

motor is attached to its own single-speed

transmission. This layout sharpens turn-in and

handling, and encourages energy recuperation at a

rate of up to 80% in normal use.

When fully charged, project one will have a zeroemission

range of around 15 miles.

“Electrification is essential for this car,” says Moers,

“For the environment and also to tame the F1

engine for every day operation. To bring the idle

speed down from 4000 to a manageable 1200rpm

you need an electric buffer to protect the clutch

and gearbox - and to avoid stalling the V6 at every

second set of traffic lights.”

Such are the complexities of timing F1‘s mightiest

power unit, and redefining the road going

performance hybrid.

Output is 1134 bhp; 1086 bhp pul the

48 bhp freed in overboost mode

AH 2019...

It was a

good year!!!

ASTON VALKYRIE

Where the Project One offers seats grown-ups

can fit in, Aston Martin’s Valkyrie looks set to

be an altogether more extreme creation. Adrian

Newey might be F1’s finest engineer but his cars

are infamously cramped, and the sculpted Valkyrie

must also find space for a 6.5-litre naturally

aspirated V12...

MCLAREN BP23

Due 2019, the first Ultimate Series McLaren that

isn’t a P1 (orP1GTR) has yet to take form than a

loose, faintly emotive sketch. The car will use the

McLaren F1’s fabled three-seat cockpit but promises

to be an ultimate hybrid GT rather than any

kind of direct successor to Gordon Murray’s V12

masterpiece.

After the shocking news that apparently the 20 year old of

the Kardashian clan is pregnant, a company didn’t wait to

create a costume. They aren’t actually allowed to put Kylie’s

name to it, instead they’ve named it the ‘Reality Star in the

Making’ costume.

Thanks to Gal Gadot and Spiderman girls and boys

everywhere will be channeling their inner superhero.

Jon Snow and Daenerys

Targaryen will definitely be the

most popular couple’s costume.

Another popular series?

were responsible for sinking the third Sex and the City movie. In a tweet, she said

the only “demand” she made “was that I didn’t want to do a 3rd film . . . & that was

back in 2016.”Apparently she refused to sign on for another sequel unless Warner

The other members were reportedly signed on and ready to go.

The British inger-songwriter

has kicked off his solo tour, and

here’s what he brings with him

on the road!

His tour rider is pretty simple:-

Chewing gum, British tea, hand

sanitizer, and hummus.

Styles also takes candels with him

from home when he travels so

wherever he is the smell is

familiar.

His fashion sense,

however, isn’t that simple.

He loves his Gucci floral

suits and loafers. And so does

his band, they’ve all been seen

wearing matching pairs of the

rainbow shoes.

“Harry has built his career,

his essence, on kindness”, said

the singer from his opening act

MUNA at his first show.

That, indeed, is the

official slogan of

Harry’s solo tour merch:

‘Treat People With Kindness’.

Thanks to his friend and hair and

make-up artist Lou Teasdale, we now

have an idea of Harry Styles’s beauty

favourites.

“You smell like Harry Styles, you

smell so good.” - Rande Gerber

told Tom Ford at the NYFW 2016.

Well, it turns out Harry uses this

fragance created as a homage to

London. It seems only natural it’s

the one he takes with him.

Entre sus acompañantes estaba su hijo, el Chino Darín

junto a su pareja, la actriz española Úrsula Corberó.

Poco antes, en la alfombra roja, el actor había

alabado a la novia de su hijo, a la que han acogido

con los brazos abiertos: “Úrsula es fantástica. Es lo

que nosotros llamamos en argentina ‘gauchita’, tiene

buena planta y aguanta”. Ella le devolvía los piropos:

“Es una suerte muy grande llevarme tan bien con

la familia de Chino. Me siento muy afortunada”. Y

añadió: “Chino es perfecto. Tengo un compañero

increíble”.

En La Cordillera el actor interpreta a Hernán

Blanco, el presidente de Argentina, junto a un

For some, Hugh Hefner was a pioneer. But he

also made headlines over controversies. The last

one in 2016, when he was included in a lawsuit

as an accomplice to a sexual assault allegedly

committed by friend Bill Cosby at the Playboy

Mansion. It is no surprise, them, that after his

death there have been many remembrances

but also articles about the darkest chapters of

Hefner’s life.

Hugh Hefner, the man who created

Playboy, passed away on September

27th at the age of 91.

The first issue of Playboy was published in

1953, when Mr. Hefner was 27, publishing

the first photos of nude female centrefolds.

He was credited with leading a sexual

revolution but at the same time, others

criticised him for placing men at the center

of said revolution and objectifying women.

He fought for reproductive rights and he

claimed that the magazine contained far

more than centerfolds. In fact, Playboy

influenced culture, and claims that people

actually bought the magazine to read it are

only partly a joke considering it also

specialized in long interviews with the

likes of Fidel Castro or Frank Sinatra.

“RIP to the legendary Hugh Hefner!” wrote

Kim Kardashian, who posed for the

magazine in 2007. “I’m so honored to have

been a part of the Playboy team! You will be

greatly missed! Love you Hef! Xoxo.”

Hefner was laid to rest beside Marilyn Monroe

in a private funeral ceremony at Westwood

Village Memorial Park as he wished. Hefner

had purchased a crypt beside Monroe back in

1992.

As for his fortune, it is rumoured to be split

between his kids and a variety of charities.

Crystal Harris Hefner won’t be willed any of

her late husband’s estimated $45 million

fortune. But thanks to a prenup agreement

signed before getting married back in 2012, the

31-year-old still stands to inherit $5

millionand a Hollywood mansion.
