Published

on

Cara Delevingne has opened the doors to her quirky Mad Hatter-inspired Los Angeles home, revealing an array of off-the-wall decor, from a ball pit to a pink ‘vagina tunnel’.  

The Suicide Squad actress welcomed cameras into her ‘adult playhouse,’ and revealed that her home includes a ‘pink p****y palace’ featuring a swing and a stripper pole, as well as a secret passageway crafted in the style of a woman’s private parts. 

The 28-year-old model showed off the unique features of her home in a new video for Architectural Digest, taking viewers through a tour of Alice in Wonderland-inspired abode.

It comes as she  candidly discussed her sexuality on a podcast, revealing she’s ‘taken pride’ in her enjoyment of sex and wants to ‘take away the stigma’ around orgasms.

The home was designed with architect Nicolò Bini of Line Architecture, whom Cara describes as the Mad Hatter to her Alice in Wonderland.

It includes lots of color, patterns — and a vagina tunnel, which the magazine describes as ‘a secret passageway concealed behind a low, painted panel, which leads from the living room to an adjacent bunk room.’ 

Tucked away behind a mirrored door in the living room, the tunnel has a pink cushion on the inside of the door and nearly-closed pink drapes on either side. Between the fabric are darker pink feathers, as well as a hanging white ball seemingly meant to represent the clitoris.

‘One enters the so-called rebirth canal through a vulval soft sculpture (think Judy Chicago on acid) and then proceeds to crawl out of a round washing-machine door suggestive of a rectum,’ the piece reads.

Cara explains: ‘I come in here to think, I come in here to create. I feel inspired in the vagina tunnel.’

In the video tour, Cara then shows ‘where this lovely labia leads,’ taking the camera into the room on the other side, exiting through a washing machine door.

Announcing that she’s ‘rebirthed an cleansed,’ she shows off a bedroom featuring a full-size bed bunk bed tossed with a Christian Dior throw blanket. The bedroom also had bold wallpaper, something Cara used throughout the house.  

She told the publication: ‘My work requires me to put on many different hats and costumes. I love slipping into these various characters, so I wanted my home to reflect lots of different themes and moods.’

Cara’s home is full of statement pieces, from Gucci wallpaper to a James Turrell art piece.

The model’s close friend Kendall Jenner has her own $750,000 James Turrell sculpture, which was made with computer-programmed LED lights. While Cara didn’t reveal the price tag on hers, it was sure to have cost a pretty penny.

‘I just tend to kind of stand in front of it and stare at it,’ she says. ‘But don’t stay too long because you might start to hallucinate.’

In her main sitting room, Cara has a unique lattice ceiling, Gucci wallpaper featuring herons, which costs $510 for two panels measuring 2.25ft x 11.5ft, potted plants, and a light fixture that is one of the star’s ‘favorite pieces in the room.’

‘It reminds me of being in England,’ she says.

The kitchen is painted blue with gold fixtures, and contains a ‘massive pantry’ and a rotisserie chicken oven built into the wall, which Cara admits she hasn’t been able to do much entertaining in her home due to the pandemic. 

Other interesting touches throughout the home include a Chanel surfboard, a guitar signed by the late David Bowie, Japanese puzzle boxes, and a see-through Wurlitzer piano — which she likes to play naked — and which is thought to be worth upwards of $20,000.

The model says that while her whole house embraces a Mad Hatter’s Tea Party feel, each room has a different theme, from jungle to old English to Beverly Hills hotel. 

Her game room has arcade machines include a Playboy pinball machine, and Cara admits that 'Hugh Hefner is a big inspiration for this house. This kind of feels like my Playboy mansion'

The model clearly likes to embrace her inner child, and says that having a costume cupboard, a pool table, a poker tent, and even a giant ball pit can help her to maintain a ‘childlike innocence’ and ease stress.

‘The meaning I have from this house is just never grow up, you know?’ she says. ‘Always kind of maintain some sort of childlike innocence or joy or just the need for fun. They’re really great for stress. You can’t cry in a ball pit. I’ve tried.’

Meanwhile, her bedroom features more bold wallpaper, a purple duvet, and a huge mirror in place of a headboard.

‘Every time I walk in here I feel calm,’ she says. 

‘We also have these lovely bouquet vagina flowers,’ she adds, gesturing to a vagina-shaped floral arrangement. ‘It’s vagina appreciation.’

A door in her bedroom leads to a large walk-in closet, which has racks of clothes along all four walls and a dresser in the middle.

Nearby, the master bathroom features a steam shower, a large tub, a big-screen TV — and a door to her shoe cupboard, a closet just for footwear like trainers, boots, and ‘one or two pairs of heels.’ 

Another room boasts a pull-down screen for watching movies, a luxe bar, and a range of musical instruments.

Outside, Cara’s backyard boasts a swimming pool and two trampolines.

‘It still feels like a home,’ she says. ‘There’s a proper dining room and living room and a great kitchen. But it’s also a kind of journey. The deeper in you go, the more treasures you discover.”

Her revelations about her graphic home comes as she appeared on Josh Smith’s Make It Reign podcast and explained she believes people still find the topic of sex ‘unbelievably uncomfortable’ and she wants to ‘open up the conversation’ around self-pleasure.

Cara, who admitted her own sexuality changes like a ‘pendulum swinging,’ added that it’s ‘important’ to discuss the taboo subject of women taking pleasure from sex, as it’s something she unknowingly ignored for many years.

She explained she’s changing the stigma around the topic by launching her own line of sex toys, saying: ‘It’s not trying to alienate men and women or how you identify, it’s about opening the conversation of self-pleasure and what it means to you.’ 

‘It’s really taking pride in my sexual identity, my sexuality and taking pride in my sexual needs as well, to take ownership of my orgasm.’

Cara went onto add: ‘It’s so much easier to tell a partner what you want if you know what you want. We’re taught that men are hornier creatures — it’s just not true.

‘It’s still there, just a bit more under the surface, but the needs are very much the same. We’re not taught to honour that, or think about that. It comes last, the pleasure part.

‘The amount of times I’d have sex and that wasn’t even a thought — ”Oh I could have an orgasm right now” — it was just sex. That wasn’t even on the list of things during sex. It’s important to talk about these things.’

During the interview Cara said the way she ‘defines’ herself ‘changes all the time’ and spoke about how much more ‘comfortable’ she is now with her sexuality than what she used to be.  

The actress also revealed when she was younger she would ‘self-shame’ because of her sexuality,  but has now learnt to embrace who she really is.

Cara has had a string of high profile romances over the years. She split from Ashley Benson in April last year following a two-year relationship. 

She has also been previously linked with Paris Jackson, musician St. Vincent, actress Michelle Rodriguez, Jake Bugg and Harry Styles. 

Cara said: ‘The way I define myself still changes all the time, whether it’s pansexual, bisexual – I don’t really know.

‘It’s like a pendulum swinging, but almost now I feel far more comfortable being bisexual than I used to. I’ve kind of felt because I was lacking in my desire for women or love for women that I kind of just went one way and now it changes a lot more.

‘I feel a lot more free and being more comfortable in it because before I was like, “oh, I’m gay”. That comes with self-shaming.’  

Pansexuality is defined as ‘sexual, romantic or emotional attraction towards people regardless of their sex or gender identity’.

Foley to bring school reopening plan to Cabinet on Tuesday

Published

on

Minister for Education Norma Foley says she has every confidence schools will reopen fully from late August and early September.

Ms Foley said there was ongoing engagement between her department and public health officials on the matter but all schools were set to reopen.

Strong mitigation measures would be in place in schools to ensure that they would continue to be controlled environments, she told RTÉ radio’s Today with Claire Byrne show on Monday.

Covid-19 infection rates among children were at their highest when children were not at school and public health experts had pointed out “on a consistent basis to schools being a very significantly controlled environment”.

The safe operation of the Leaving Certificate exams and enhanced summer camps indicated that the safe operation of education could be maintained, she said.

A plan would be put in place to allow schools to “draw down” CO2 monitors and the Minister said she was confident there would be enough monitors for all schools by the start of the new school year.

In relation to Covid-19 vaccines for children, Ms Foley said the “expertise” lay with the National Immunisation Advisory Committee (NIAC) from which her department would take guidance.

“I have received confirmation that the 16 to 18-year-old cohort should be in a position for online registration in the coming days, and I have been advised that the 15-year-olds cohort are still being considered by NIAC and there has been no definitive timeline given,” she added.

Ms Foley will bring a plan to Cabinet on Tuesday outlining enhanced public information campaigns, the outcome of antigen testing pilots, and the purchase of C02 monitors to assist in ventilating classrooms.

Capacity limits on school transport services will also remain in place.

Government sources were adamant on Sunday that second-level education would resume in the autumn, despite concerns among public-health officials that the wave could grow following the reopening of indoor dining today, before peaking in September.

“Schools will reopen,” a senior Coalition source said.

Over 40 complaints made about ‘unsuitable’ books on English curriculum

Published

on

Some books being studied by Junior Cert and Leaving Cert English students feature “disturbing and sick content” and material that is “clearly unsuitable for minors”, complainants have told the Department of Education.

The department has received more than 40 complaints on the issue in recent months, with one email to Minister Norma Foley describing The Handmaid’s Tale by Margaret Atwood as “nothing but sadistic, upsetting and of no moral learning or value to students”.

The acclaimed dystopian novel is based in a patriarchal totalitarian state where women, or handmaids, are forced to produce children for commanders.

One “concerned parent” said they were “perturbed” that their teenager was studying the novel Room by Irish author Emma Donoghue.

‘Questionable’

They said many of the topics in the book were “questionable” and that greater consideration should have been given before the book was “forced upon sensitive people in this day and age”. The Booker-shortlisted story is told from the perspective of a young boy held captive in a small room with his mother.

The emails, released to The Irish Times under the Freedom of Information Act, were from parents, one of whom said they were “appealing to and begging” the department to change the curriculum.

One parent expressed “shock and concern” about the prescribed reading lists, citing a perceived “lack of vigilance regarding the age appropriateness” of some books. “The material is offensive, abhorrent and clearly unsuitable for minors,” they said.

The curriculum could “only be described as the sexualisation and desensitising of our children… there needs to be an investigation into this whole sordid affair”, another complaint said.

‘Enslaving’

One person said the book list was “enslaving” students to “abominable ungodly content”, while another sarcastically suggested there was “nothing to stop” Fifty Shades of Grey, the bestselling explicit erotic romance novel, being added.

Some emails were directed towards Ms Foley personally, and called for her to be fired and “held directly responsible”. The department’s response stated that the curriculum at all levels was considered to be for all learners “regardless of race, religion, socioeconomic background, gender or orientation”.

It said it was important that each book was viewed “in its entirety rather than being reduced to particular sections which may be especially controversial”, and that the texts had “strong literary pedigrees” and featured on curricula internationally.

There were also several emails sent to the department in defence of the curriculum, predominantly from students.

The text-list working groups for each subject, convened by the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment, are comprised of teachers, third-level lecturers, staff from relevant support agencies and experts in children’s and young adult literature. The curriculum did not change this year though the Minister said it would be reviewed in the coming months.

EDEN CONFIDENTIAL: A new £10m home sweet home in the Cotswolds for Nick Candy and Holly Valance 

Published

You might have thought having a Chelsea pad worth more than £75 million would be enough for most property tycoons, but not for Nick Candy.

I can disclose that Candy and his pop star wife, Holly Valance, have splashed out well over £10 million on a Grade II‑listed mansion in Oxfordshire.

They will be a short drive from trendy private members’ club Soho Farmhouse, where Prince Harry courted Meghan.

How guitar guru Beck gave Depp a silver lining 

Pictured: Johnny Depp is planning his comeback

Pictured: Johnny Depp is planning his comeback

With his acrimonious divorce from actress Amber Heard, and their bitter court room showdown in London last summer, Hollywood star Johnny Depp suffered the biggest setback of his glittering career.

Now, however, I hear he’s quietly planning his comeback — right here in Britain.

The 58-year-old star of Fantastic Beasts and Charlie And The Chocolate Factory has been taken under the wing of British rock legend Jeff Beck.

The Hi Ho Silver Lining guitarist, 77, who’s so talented he had each of his fingers insured for £700,000 in 2010, has secretly been hosting Depp at his Riverhall country estate in Wadhurst, East Sussex, where they’ve been writing and recording together in Beck’s studio. Depp is an accomplished guitarist himself.

‘They’ve been collaborating on material for Jeff’s next album,’ reveals a source close to Depp. ‘It’s been great for Johnny to get back to his first true love, which is music.

‘Jeff has been a great friend to Johnny during a very difficult time, and being away from Hollywood has been exactly what Johnny needed.

‘He wants to take a step back from everything and focus on a comeback through music.’

Eight-time Grammy Award winner Jeff, who has been called ‘one of the most influential lead guitarists in rock’ by Rolling Stone magazine, recorded a cover of John Lennon’s Isolation with Depp last year, intended to help people cope with life in lockdown.

In 2019 they played together at the Crossroads Music Festival in Dallas, Texas, for Eric Clapton’s charity, then did a short tour of the U.S.

Depp has previously featured on songs by Oasis, Iggy Pop, and Aerosmith, as well as on records by his ex-girlfriend, singer Vanessa Paradis, with whom he has two children. In 2015, he formed the super group, Hollywood Vampires, with Alice Cooper and Joe Perry.

‘Johnny hopes to return to films eventually,’ adds the source, ‘but it’s music first.’

Boogie-woogie pianist Jools Holland is learning to sing lullabies. The Later . . . with Jools Holland host has become a grandfather at the age of 63.

‘I am very pleased that I now have a wonderful grandson, Gabriel,’ he says. His musician daughter, Mabel Ray, 30, is the proud mum.

‘We seem to have identical hair,’ he adds of the baby. ‘He is a delightful little fellow. All thanks to the fantastic staff at Homerton University Hospital for delivering him to us.’

Queen’s Windsor gong show for late Duke’s loyal page

The Queen is making sure Prince Philip’s most steadfast former aides feel rewarded.

I hear that she invited the Duke of Edinburgh’s loyal page, William Henderson, to Windsor Castle this week to collect his gong.

His appointment as a Lieutenant of the Royal Victorian Order was announced on what would have been Philip’s 100th birthday.

Henderson was among those who took part in the funeral procession, walking behind the coffin.

Known for his sarcastic quips when required to report on the love lives of the Royal Family, waggish news anchor Simon McCoy seems to be secretly obsessed with the Windsors.

‘If I were invisible, I would go into Highgrove and stand by the phone to listen to any conversation Prince Charles might have with Harry,’ admits McCoy, who recently moved from the BBC to its new rival channel, GB News.

‘I feel desperately sorry for Charles — I really do. Family difficulties are bad enough without one of you bleating about it to the Press all the time.’

Creating a buzz with Angelina the Queen Bee 

There’s a buzz about Angelina Jolie, but it’s nothing to do with her film career.

The actress brought a touch of Hollywood glamour to the new French Apidology Observatory, in Sainte-Baume, where she presented its first graduates with their diplomas.

Jolie, 46, who’s recently been seen out with her British ex-husband Jonny Lee Miller, was there because she’s involved in the Women for Bees project, which aims to encourage women to become beekeepers.

Clearly, there’s only one Queen Bee.

Paymaster General Penny Mordaunt, who starred on TV diving show Splash, will be demonstrating her water skills at the local pool rather than heading off to the Med this summer.

‘I’ll be staying in my constituency and spending time at my local lido,’ the MP for Portsmouth North tells me at the Westminster launch party for her book, Greater: Britain After The Storm, which she’s co-written with Chris Lewis. ‘I’ve earned that — I went to great lengths to save it.’

The forecast is hotting up with Carol’s exotic secret 

This could liven up those dull BBC meteorological reports: weather presenter Carol Kirkwood has revealed a secret skill.

‘I can belly-dance,’ whispers the former Strictly contestant.

‘It is actually quite hard, but I learned to do it when I was a student travelling in Turkey and Greece.’

The Scottish hotelier’s daughter, 59, adds: I can’t claim to be very good at it — but I do at least have the belly for it these days.’
