Fresh from her fifth Olympic Games in Tokyo in mid-2021, PNG’s champion weightlifter Dika Toua trades her usual training gear for a seriously glam gown on the cover of Lily's The Style Issue (released September 2021), while in the fashion centrespread inside she is joined by fellow sports stars – sprinter Toua Wisil and sailor Rose-Lee Numa – to model some killer off-the-field outfits and tell us about their own favourite looks.

Also featured is the newly-announced winner and two runners-up of the first What’s Your Style? PNG fashion competition, along with 40 other stand-out entrants in an 8-page showcase of style from right around the country.

The style theme continues with a peek inside the wardrobes of three style leaders – Olympic ‘jump queen’ athlete Rellie Kaputin, top model Alang Isaac, and singer-actress-TV host Tinzey Mau, who talk us through their signature looks.

There are also interviews and insights from the editor of PNG’s only Tok Pisin newspaper Rosa Koian; BSP’s general manager-digital Nuni Kulu; local musicians such as Chris Cobb who are livestreaming their jam sessions to keep delivering music in a pandemic; and Courtney Abel, one of the new wave of savvy online fashion ‘resellers’ who comb PNG’s many thrift shops to find shopping bargains for the rest of us.
