We told you to expect some big things… and here you have it! Right there on the front of our New Zealand Heroes Issue is the quintessential Kiwi hero herself, Anna Paquin. This issue of Remix is being released nationwide the exact same day as the hugely popular television series True Blood airs its final episode, which Paquin has been the lead role in for the last seven seasons. Read our exclusive interview and see Anna like never before on page 96. Anna is only the tip of the New Zealand Hero iceberg… We also have exclusive photoshoots and interviews with the likes of fashion legend Karen Walker, musician Jon Toogood, songstresses Kimbra and Ladyhawke, the boys from I Love Ugly, model superstar Ashleigh Good, as well as Lorde’s right-hand man Scott McLaughlan and make-up artist Amber D. This issue of Remix is bursting at the seams, jam-packed full with the latest fashion, beauty, lifestyle and culture inspiration. Overseen by fashion director Kylie Cooke, our Fashion section alone weighs in at just under 80 pages, with beautiful photography and cutting-edge styling by a team of eclectic contributors. Look out for our conversations with models Ollie Henderson on page 233 and Georgia Pratt on page 241.
