Stellar magazine’s March 3 issue, available in The Sunday Telegraph and Sunday Herald Sun, celebrates International Women’s Day with an all-female line-up of contributors, writers, photographers and featured guests.
Wentworth’s Danielle Cormack is the cover star for Stellar’s IWD issue; Julie Bishop is a guest columnist; and interviews inside include Deborra-lee Furness, Jenny Kee and Robyn Lawley – to name a few.
Stellar editor-in-chief Sarrah Le Marquand said: “It’s that time of year again, International Women’s Day, and for those wondering if such an occasion is still warranted in 2019, I’ll leave that to the eloquent likes of Stellar guest columnist Julie Bishop, cover star Danielle Cormack and Q&A subject Deborra-lee Furness to answer.
“Meanwhile, until we reach a time when the need for IWD is rendered truly obsolete, we will continue to celebrate it at Stellar, and this year we have chosen to do so by featuring an all-female issue including writers and photographers – with the exception of our regular columnists and IWD allies, Matt Preston and Neale Whitaker”.
Style director of Stellar, Kelly Hume, said: “For a long time our industry looked to male photographers to shoot covers and celebrity fashion stories. Slowly, both locally and internationally that is beginning to change.
“In my experience, I’ve found female photographers are able to capture other women’s vulnerability, strength and sexuality in a way that men can’t.
“At Stellar we work with the very best in the industry and in terms of hair and makeup – that more often than not ends up being a woman”.
In Stellar’s IWD March 3 edition, Julie Bishop writes about ‘why we do not need an International Men’s Day’; Danielle Cormack speaks frankly about #MeToo, her ‘modern, blended family,’ and how she learnt to tune out other people’s judgements; and Deborah-Lee Furness tells Stellar she loves when Hugh sings in the shower and why refuses to Google herself.
