Kendall Jenner, her subtle supermodel half-sister, managed to steal her thunder once again in the new spring/ summer issue of the same magazine. Nineteen-year-old Kendall is modelling breast and buttock prosthetics, alongside fashion sensations Malgosia Bela, Caroline Trentini, Toni Garn and Lexxi Bowling in the editorial shoot photographed by acclaimed photographer Steven Klein and styled by famous Greek Cypriot fashion director Panos Yiapanis. Issue 13 of Love magazine hit the stands on 9 February, bringing on the best-selling Caroline Trantini imagery in 2015, thanks to Panos Yiapanis’ specially commissioned art project, aptly dubbed ‘Boobs’. The stylist, who grew up in Athens and is one of the most influential people in the industry, created this provocative editorial in order to explore the changing ideals of body shape, using stick-on bums and boobs which were especially created for the shoot by prosthetics Ladies ready for everything!

Jenner and the other ‘normal’ body-figure models are sporting their alter-egos’ artificially voluptuous and suggestive personality in an effort to discover whether this obsession with a new fuller body shape is valid for fashion designers or not. “I kind of wanted to question how valid that is for designers, Lexxi Bowling and Caroline Trentini, sporting fake hair, breasts and behinds. whether it’s just a stunt or if it’s a true shift,” Panos Yiapanis said. “We’re so accustomed to the shape that’s been on the runway for the past 20 years that I don’t know how honest this new, more curvaceous figure is as an intention.” Working with custom made silicone prosthetics wasn’t easy according to Yiapanis. Malgosia Bella, styled by Panos Yiapanis. “They were made of silicone, so after a few hours, they kind of started to droop. We’d have to switch pairs and put them in the fridge. They were huge. They were even bigger than DDDs.” Yiapanis confessed to not focusing on the actual styling, but on the fact that “the clothes don’t actually fit those bodies”. “Usually with my shoots, there’s an elaborate fashion Kendall Jenner with prosthetic body parts in Panos Yiapanis’ controversial photo shoot. concept, but not for this one. It was about the body shape that I wanted to create, and maybe slightly, slightly take it to the point of vulgarity as well,” he previously told style.com *To see more photos and explore Panos Yiapanis’ body of work as fashion director, click on the magazine’s web page www.thelovemagazine.co.uk Jennifer Lopez holds the first copy of The Iliad In her new movie, the producers didn’t do their homework In her new film, titled The Boy Next Door, directed by Rob Cohen, Jennifer Lopez makes a grave literary mistake. First of all she plays a highschool teacher in the new four million budget thriller, which is why she should be able to spot this script foul. The 45-year-old star goes over the top, having an affair with a 19-year-old student who lives next door, played by Ryan Guzman. The young man, as part of his courtship plan, presents her with a ‘first edition’ of Homer’s famous Modern Greek Theatre company Thiasos Parikia presents a hilarious comedy by playwright George Lazaridis, Γυναίκες Έτοιμες για όλα (Ladies Ready for Everything). Set to premier on Saturday 14 February at the Renaissance Theatre in Kew, audiences will be entertained by this funny, crazy, and at times raunchy play. Sisters are doing it for themselves in this production. The women, sick and tired of their husbands being unfaithful and cheating on them, are finally ready to teach them lesson. What is the best way to seek revenge? By being unfaithful right back of course. The Ladies Ready for Everything are being played by actors Marina Lezou, Fenia Hatzimihail and Suzanna Papadopoulou, while the male cast includes Stavros Arberorois, George Gazetis and Thanasis Makrigiorgos.

I can’t accept this. This must have cost a fortune,” she says while receiving the gift in said scene. Noah Sandborn (Guzman) goes on to tell Lopez’s character (Claire Peterson), that the book cost “a buck at a garage sale”. The Iliad, as not only those of Greek descent know, is a Greek epic poem written 3,000 years ago by Homer. The ‘first copy’ was actually written in the late 10th century, after the story was passed from mouth to mouth. Finding the first edition of The Iliad at the price of $1 at a yard sale, let alone written in English, doesn’t make much sense, does it? Screenwriter Barbara Curry says the script for the film “won numerous awards”. When the children conspire... What happens when a nagging parent becomes too much to bear? Her children conspire against her. Presented by the League of Greeks of Egypt and Middle East (EEAMA) Μάνα, Μητέρα, Μαμά (Mum, Mother, Mum) is a play by George Dialegmenou and will have its first preview on Saturday 21 February at South Oakleigh Secondary College. Set in a suburban family home, the play starts to unfold in a simple and common setting - the living room - where snippets of conversation start to reveal the minor problems that all families seem to have. It quickly becomes apparent that there is an extreme power imbalance, with the one who holds the most influence being the mother. Due to illness and the effects of ageing, she finds herself in a wheelchair; however, her immobility is not enough to stop her from ranting and ordering everyone around. As a result, her children and their partners, sick and tired of tip-toeing around their mother, come together and conspire about how to gain control and put an end to this elderly woman’s tirade. Sure to entertain, Mum, Mother, Mum is a mixture of comedy and drama, Dialegmenou claiming that it cannot be categorised under one genre alone. “It has a lot of comedic points, but also dramatic scenes, which culminate at the end and provoke tears from the audience,” he said. “One could say that it is a social satire, which has sprung out of the actual experiences that each of us lives daily.” Mum, Mother, Mum will commence on Saturday 21 February and take place every weekend until Sunday 29 “Much of my original script was rewritten by the producers and the director. I was not given the opportunity to participate in the production of this movie,” Curry told the media. “The ‘first edition’ Iliad reference in the movie was not something I wrote in my original script.” The screenwriter went on to stress that she was in fact told by the producer himself - who actually purchased the script - that he loved it and “didn’t want me to change a word”. “Someone else obviously disagreed,” she added. Allegedly the producer tried to undermine her talent, yet not a single member of the cast found this line odd. A scene from Mum, Mother, Mum. How will her children gain control over their controlling mother? March, 2015. For bookings, call George on (03) 9773 0621 or 0419 339 502.
