Over the past 32 years we have truly appreciated all you loyal readers, which is why, this year, we decided to give you not one but two bumper December issues. First up is the über-glam Hollywood issue.

Of course, Scarlett Johansson was our ideal cover star. A princess of the modern silver screen, a starlet reminiscent of Marilyn Monroe, a charity ambassador, the face of Dolce&Gabanna beauty and soon to be wed, there was plenty to talk to her about in our exclusive interview.

Ever wondered about the story behind the famous Hollywood sign? Well, we tell you its fascinating tale. Also inside this issue we look at the real meaning of celebrity with Taliban victim Malala Yousafzai being the focus of a new exhibition, we also explore the dangerous effects of bad role models and, of course, we celebrate the UAE in our special National Day feature.

Our fashion pages are full to the brim with red carpet glamour as well as tips and secrets from international party people. We also reveal our best-dressed list and the best fashion famous moments of 2013 – Jennifer Lawrence’s fall in couture Dior makes an importance appearance.

On the wellbeing front, this issue contains everything you need to know about achieving that A-list look, while top trainers to the stars provide us their client workout programmes.

All this and much more…

With the Hollywood issue comes our highly popular EW mini supplement. Perfect for the Christmas season ahead we reveal perfect party treats, yummy festive feasts and tell you about the ideal winter retreats where your kids will be treated like VIPs.
