Ormai basta una foto su Instagram per conquistarsi i 15 minuti di celebrità che Andy Warhol aveva democraticamente già pronosticato per tutti. E succede anche a chi ha già una professione di tutto rispetto come quella di medico. Giovanni Angiolini, 37 anni, medico specialista in ortopedia e traumatologia originario di Sassari, è il doc più desiderato dalle donne italiane. Occhi verdi, capelli scuri, barba leggermente incolta, addominali scolpiti e manine d’oro.
La foto che lo ha portato agli onori della cronaca, è quella postata il 12 di novembre in cui seduto alla scrivania con tanto di camice bianco e posa da “Linkedin” annuncia una sua nuova avventura professionale: l’inizio della collaborazione con il centro medico I Mulini di Cagliari. E da quel momento, la popolazione femminile che ha iniziato a fantasticare su un’avventura non proprio professionale con il sexy dottore è aumentato a suon di like e commenti. Ad oggi, Giovanni Angiolini è stato incoronato il medico più attraente e desiderato d’Italia. E il suo numero di telefono, di dominio pubblico su Instagram, è stato preso d’assalto anche da chi gode di piena salute.
In realtà, care donne del Nord e dintorni, sappiate che le vostre amiche sarde questo medico di rara bellezza lo apprezzano già da molti anni. Oltre ad essere affascinante, gentile e schivo il giusto (caratteristica che lo rende ancora più intrigante), il dottor Angiolini, a detta dei suoi colleghi di corsia, è anche molto bravo. Del resto si è laureato in Medicina e Chrirurgia con 110 e lode. E come se non bastasse, con un padre operaio e mamma segretaria, è un self made man che risparmia a tutti l’aria un po’ antipatica da figlio di papà. Ma non ci sarà troppa perfezione tutta concentrata in un metro e 86 di altezza?
Scavando nel suo passato, si è scoperto che nel 2015 ha anche partecipato come concorrente al Grande Fratello 14, da cui poi si è ritirato per tornare a fare il medico. E attualmente è conduttore di «Buonasera Dottore» su TV2000. Insomma, da oggi TV2000 è il nuovo Netflix per le serate sul divano durante l’inverno.
Dopo anni da single incallito in cui si è goduto tutti i benefits di essere una scapolo d’oro che si piace e sa di piacere, il bel Angiolini ha trovato l’amore. Questa donna fortunata si chiama Nieves Bolòs, fitness influencer spagnola. E qui, il cliché colpisce ancora. Il binomio medico-infermiera sarebbe stato un po’ troppo banale, ma non che bello + bella lo sia di meno. Nives ha la pelle ambrata, sì quel colorito perfetto con cui tutte vorremmo alzarci alla mattina, i capelli lunghi biondo scuro, un sorriso Mentadent bianchissimo, occhi verdi e fisico che trasuda centinaia e centinaia di ripetizione di squat e affondi.
A tutta questa perfezione, si aggiunge il fatto che Giovanni Angiolini non si vergogna di dichiarare il suo amore per Nieves sui social, condendo le foto di coppia con frasi da uomo innamorato. Di quelle che scrivono gli uomini beta, non certo gli uomini apparentemente alfa come lui. Sì, perché nella vita reale, gli uomini alfa tra i 30 e i 40 anni, belli, intelligenti e che ci sanno fare, non sono fidanzati e non ci tengono ad esserlo. Non sarà un po’ troppo che Angiolini in tutto il suo splendore, sia anche un fidanzatino perfetto? Per fortuna, qualcuno sostiene che le coppie più felici non condividono la loro vita sui social perché non hanno bisogno dell’approvazione altrui o di qualche like per rafforzare i loro sentimenti.
Di tutta questa storia così perfetta, a noi sarebbe piaciuto un cliché meno banale. Ovvero, che il dottor Giovanni Angiolini si fosse fidanzato per lo meno con una ragazza carina, ma nulla di più. Sarebbe stato tutto meno scontato e noi adesso, saremmo qui a chiederci: Ma come avrà fatto questa?. E la “soap” ci avrebbe tenuti incollati allo schermo ancora per un po’.
In a brand new interview with ELLE, Jennifer Aniston opens up about her two previous marriages, to Brad Pitt and Justin Theroux.
When it comes to her ex-husbands, Aniston reveals, “My marriages, they’ve been very successful, in [my] personal opinion. And when they came to an end, it was a choice.”
As well as talking about her new Netflix movie Dumplin’, Aniston discusses societal sexism, particularly in regard to the assumption that all women want children.
Jennifer Aniston is shutting down the persistent rumor mill that continually reports that she’s either pregnant or can’t find a man.
Aniston, of course, split from second husband Justin Theroux in February 2018, but as she tells ELLE, “I don’t feel a void. I really don’t.”
And even though her marriages ended, Aniston doesn’t see them in a negative light. She explains, “My marriages, they’ve been very successful, in [my] personal opinion. And when they came to an end, it was a choice that was made because we chose to be happy, and sometimes happiness didn’t exist within that arrangement anymore. Sure, there were bumps, and not every moment felt fantastic, obviously, but at the end of it, this is our one life and I would not stay in a situation out of fear.”
And that’s not all. The Friends icon also wants to shift the perceptions of women who choose not to have children or get married. As she says, “We live in a society that messages women: By this age, you should be married; by this age, you should have children. That’s a fairy tale. That’s the mold we’re slowly trying to break out of.”
In case anyone was in any doubt, yes, Aniston is done with misogyny: “That’s part of sexism—it’s always the woman who’s scorned and heartbroken and a spinster. It’s never the opposite.”

Gigi Hadid has broken out of the typical red-carpet beauty mold with her latest look. Last night in New York, the model championed natural beauty over a use of a plethora of product.
Suitably, the 23-year-old opted for the look at Marc Jacobs party celebrating the launch of the designer’s relaunched SS93 collection for Perry Ellis that was the instigator of the grunge movement that went on to define the ’90s.
Naomi Campbell Re-Wore Her Look From Marc Jacobs’s 1993 Grunge Show
Choosing to stay away from the smoky eyes that she does so well, this look was all about a youthful appeal by way of a flawless complexion and a natural matt lip.
If you – like us here at Miss Vogue – are become tired of the overly packed skin and mad voluminous lashes that populate Instagram, then join us in hoping that Gigi’s natural look is how the beauty buzz of 2019 will go. Oh how ready we are to say goodbye to Insta Face.
Expect the unexpected at the December 10 Fashion Awards in London. Why? Britain’s leading lady of punk Vivienne Westwood will receive the Swarovski Award for Positive Change for her climate-change activism (and, we’d like to think, for being an all-round maverick in the fashion realm).
While you’ll have to wait until the fashion world gathers on Monday to see exactly what happens when Westwood takes the stage, a dozen of her friends, collaborators and muses have sent Vogue songs of her praises. Long live Dame Viv!
The Burberry And Vivienne Westwood Collection Has Dropped – And It’s Brilliant
Kim Kardashian West, who wore Vivienne Westwood to the 2018 Met Gala:
“It’s been an honor to wear Vivienne Westwood over the years; I love wearing her dresses because she really knows how to sculpt the shape of a woman’s body, and I always feel confident wearing one of her designs. She’s made such a contribution to the fashion community, and I wish her congratulations on this acknowledgement.”
Kate Moss, model in many of Westwood’s earliest shows:
“Vivienne uses her creativity to bring awareness to important global issues. I admire her tenacity – she’s such an inspiration.”
Pamela Anderson, friend and Vivienne Westwood campaign star:
“Vivienne has moved mountains with her work as an activist. It’s hard to keep up with her. She is a mentor and dear friend. She and Andreas [Kronthaler, Westwood’s husband] are always supportive and encourage me to keep fighting and using my voice. I think we all need to listen to Vivienne more; of course her clothes are a fairy tale in themselves – but now we must create our own myth. Time is running out. She is straight as an arrow. There are no minced words. We are always trying to find ways to reach people’s imaginations and hearts, and spring people into action. Everything about Vivienne is everything I want to be be. She is a warrior.”
Helena Christensen, model on many Vivienne Westwood runways:
“One of life’s true warriors, her indomitable approach to her work, life, and causes is simply addictive and inspirational. Vivienne is never afraid to challenge and is lionhearted in everything she does. In today’s world she’s an essential part of the movement needed to question and effect change.”
Rose McGowan, fellow activist, environmentalist and friend:
“Vivienne is an inspiration, a controversial creative who’s never shied away from doing what’s right. From designing as she wants to and living as she wants to, her nonconformist spirit is something we can all be inspired by.”
Mert And Marcus To Receive The BFC’s Isabella Blow Award For Fashion Creator
Charles Jeffrey, spiritual successor to Westwood’s send-ups of British culture:
“Vivienne Westwood is not only one of the reasons I became a fashion designer but a reason I stay a fashion designer. Her tenacity and beguiling loyalty to what she stands for is continuously inspiring and hard not to love. The way she has used culture and the past to form present creative gestures is a strong reminder that time doesn’t have to be viewed as linear. For me, she’s a regular touchpoint to remind myself of the responsibility we have to the wider creative community, as well as to the planet. Thank you, Vivienne, for existing!”
Bella Freud, friend and former employee and model:
“Vivienne has never tried to please. Often her ideas would be misunderstood, only later recognised as groundbreaking and pioneering. Her example reminds me of Alexander the Great, slicing through the knot with a sword instead of messing about trying to unpick it. She is fearless—if anyone can make a difference to our world, it is Vivienne Westwood.”
Miuccia Prada To Receive Outstanding Achievement Award At Fashion Awards 2018
Jerry Hall, wore Westwood to her 2017 wedding:
“From my personal experience Vivienne Westwood is the best fashion designer in the world. Her clothes are so timeless as to be the most eco-friendly, as they never go out of style. Being historical in the first place, they always fit even as you grow, and they look even more Vivienne Westwood after years of wear, a few moth holes, and even fire! She is a genius! I love her.”
Juergen Teller, photographer of Westwood’s campaigns:
“Vivienne is an outstanding personality, has made a huge impact with what she has achieved within her fashion work, and is seriously concerned with what is happening to our planet. Her activism to raise awareness is extremely important, necessary, and admirable.”
Fran Summers Leads The BFC’s British New Wave Creatives
Nadja Swarovski, force behind the Swarovski Award for Positive Change:
“The Swarovski Award for Positive Change forms part of Swarovski’s wider efforts to promote a more sustainable future. Dame Vivienne Westwood has made an indelible mark on global fashion, and we are delighted to celebrate her inspirational creativity, lifelong advocacy of environmental causes, and promotion of ethical fashion, which have had an enduring and profound effect on the industry.”

Elliot George Meeten began modeling when he was 18, balancing his career with university. Since then, the 23-year-old Brit earned his degree, faced the Balmain Paris Hair Couture Spring 2018 campaign, and graced the covers of high-fashion glossies alike. Meeten talked to CR about transitioning into the fashion industry, moving to New York City, and his number one hobby.
Growing up did you know you wanted to become a model? “No, no, no, of course not. I took school pretty seriously. I went to college, then went to university and got my degree. I never really thought I could make a career of it. When I graduated, I thought I’d just give it a try for a year and here I am almost two years later still going.”
What was your degree in? “I studied geography. Ultimately I wanted to be working in green energy, development, renewable energy. It’s a bit different from what I’m doing now, but I think I’d like to do it in the future when I’m a bit older.”
So do you travel a lot for you job? “Yeah, it’s kind of ironic. When I got a geography degree, everyone thinks we should be really good at reading maps and stuff, but I never really looked at a map once when I was at university. For work, I’ve traveled to places I’ve never even thought of traveling to before. New York I’d never been before I got into modeling. Milan, Paris, Spain, Barcelona, Madrid, Holland. It’s been really good so far.”
What’s your favorite place you’ve traveled to? “I went to L.A. for a geography field trip and I loved it there. I loved the vibe, much more chill. Because I’m from a seaside town in England, it was similar but just with better weather, so I really got along well there. But I think Paris is the ultimate city because of the cuisine, culture, things to do–it’s just beautiful there.”
Are you based in London? “Actually I’ve just decided to be based in New York, so I moved here two weeks ago.”
What’s your favorite thing about New York City? “I think the vibe and the atmosphere. There’s always something going on the city is so busy. It can be quite stressful and sometimes quite lonely even though there are so many people, but there are so many opportunities here.”
Do you have any hobbies? “I absolutely love playing golf, but in New York it’s a bit hard. I think you’ll have to travel a bit, quite far out of the city. I started [playing golf], when I was 12. Got pretty good. And then just obviously working, and university, I didn’t play as much. But I spent the summer in England, and play two or three times a week when I’m home.”
One writer explores Iceland’s rich mythology of elves, trolls and ghosts under the midnight sun.

I’m standing on a ledge at the end of Víðgelmir cave, a nearly 1,600-metre-long lava tube just under two hours by car from Reykjavík in West Iceland’s Hallmundarhraun lava field. Above ground it’s summer, a time when the sun hardly sets in this part of the world, but down here it feels like winter and it’s pitch-black.
The tour guide leading our excursion instructs us to turn off our headlamps, the only source of light. “Now let your eyes adjust,” he says. “You’ve probably never experienced complete darkness before, and your brain may start doing some weird things.” While my pupils acclimate to the blackness (I’m starting to see faint lightlike formations), he tells us about Iceland’s Huldufólk (“Hidden People”)—a ghost story of sorts.
Almost as soon as you enter The Cave it becomes completely dark and the temperature drops to about 1 degree Celsius. The lights that have been installed inside the lava tube illuminate incredible rock formations and gorgeous colours. @bustraveliceland #cave #iceland #tour (
Pantone has announced its official Colour Of The Year for 2019, and it’s a bright, sunny, pinky-orange named Living Coral. Or, as Pantone describes it, “an animating and life-affirming coral hue with a golden undertone that energises and enlivens with a softer edge”. Which, unlike last year’s slightly more challenging Ultraviolet, makes it the perfect hue for incorporating into your make-up bag. On cheeks it adds a flush of warmth, on nails a pop of colour and on lips a bold alternative to classic red. And why wait until 2019? Below, discover some of our favourite make-up to get those Living Coral vibes right now.
Today, Givenchy opens the doors to its first London flagship in Mayfair. The timing couldn’t be more perfect, for 2018 has been the year that the brand has made its mark on the capital.
The British heritage of Clare Waight Keller, who took the helm in May 2017, earned the brand the most valuable fashion commission of the year: the wedding dress Meghan Markle wore to become the Duchess of Sussex. On May 19, 18 million people watched the former Suits star walk down the aisle in a graphic couture design that had been a close collaboration between designer and modern princess.
Their relationship has blossomed since. The Duchess has looked to Waight Keller for custom looks for Princess Eugenie’s wedding, the official family portrait for Prince Charles’s 70th birthday and her first official appearance with Queen Elizabeth II. A brand could not ask for better exposure, and profits – Alexander McQueen’s sales reportedly rose 27 per cent in 2011 after Sarah Burton created the Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding dress – must be healthy.

The new 165 New Bond Street store, which occupies two converted 18th-century buildings, certainly suggests this. The décor mixes period features, including bow windows and fireplaces, with a glossy red staircase, geometric tiles and pink podiums housing accessories. Speaking of which, a new mini bucket bag will go on sale exclusively in the store, and the brand promises more special one-off products to come.
Instagrammable changing rooms and limited-edition accessories will prove vital to attract millennial customers who are constantly on the hunt for newness that no one else has. But, will royal fans bite? The store’s Mayfair location puts it in pole position to do well.
