For the 'gram

Despite being allocated seats at a private movie screening, one budding entrepreneur did the unthinkable—sneak onto the red carpet for a few photos with her guest after everyone had gone into the theatre, before leaving for another party right under the nose of her bewildered host.

Road rage

A mother-of-one famous for her gentle persona revealed a different side of herself on the road when she aggressively cut into the lane of another lady's car, forcing the latter to slam on her brakes to avoid getting into an accident. Turns out, the other lady was a friend who instantly recognised her from her bright purple hair.

Personal stylist

Overheard: the reason behind one socialite's signature get-up. Never seen in anything other than a variety of low-cut tops and micro-mini skirts, the 40-something lady happily tells a friend after a few drinks that it is her husband who styles her each time they go out—be it to the supermarket or a gala dinner.
