A palazzo for the press, Idris Elba’s dream eco-city, and the world’s oldest lipstick…

Idris Elba

The journalists once labelled “communists” by Italy’s former PM Silvio Berlusconi will soon be working from his old residence/home to the infamous “Bunga Bunga” parties. The Italian Foreign Press Association is moving into the bulletproofed Palazzo Grazioli in Rome.

If you’ve dreamt of being on an exotic island with Idris Elba, your fantasy could come true as the actor has revealed his “dream” to build an ‘eco-city’ off the coast of Sierra Leone. He’s been granted permission for the project which will include the country’s first windfarm.

We’re guilty of sometimes keeping our make-up for a bit too long, but we’d draw the line at 4,000 years… Archaeologists say that’s how long ago the world’s oldest known lipstick was made, after digging it up in southeastern Iran.
