It’s a slow drive into summer in Sydney with all this crazy wet weather but great that international brands can inject some brightness from their Cruise/Resort collections.

The Warrior Conquers

I loved dressing up in my floor length Gucci at last night’s celebrations of GQ Man of the Year awards at the Sydney Opera House. A very wet evening, where it rained cocktails and blew in glamourous black tie fashions.

GQ Man of Year: Joel Edgerton wearing Giorgio Armani.

GQ Woman of the Year: Rachael Taylor wears Dion Lee dress from David Jones with her boyfriend Josh Lawson.

Me in Gucci with friends, Ali Hainsworth wearing Alexander Wang and Isabel Marant shoes and Jodhi Meares in Roland Mouret from Landsend and Camilla Skovgaard shoes.

Je t’aime… moi non plus

Here is a peak at the Remix magazine story I styled with photographer Derek Henderson, inspired by the romantic and sublimely chic couple Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg.

Model: Stacy Martin (Pricillas) wears ELLERY
Actor: Benedict Samuel wears Prada

Lace veil from The Hatmaker Location: Sun Studios

Stacy wears Zimmermann blouse and American Apparel briefs

Stacy wears Miu Miu coatdress, Aubade briefs from IM Imports and Fiorina ring

Actor: Benedict wears Hermes knit, Gucci pants, Fiorina necklace and his own ring.

Stacy wears Kate Sylvester blouse and Marni skirt

Actor: Benedict wears Gucci shirt and suit, Tom Ford bow tie & pocket square from Harrolds and Prada boots.

We asked model, Stacey who is seriously a Jane Birkin doppelganger, if she’s ever been told she looks like Miss Birkin?

Quite a lot actually and I’m always very flatter by the comparison……she is amazing and Serge Gainsbourg’s muse to boot.  I had the opportunity to work with her daughter Lou Doillon when she launched her collection for Lee a few years ago and Jane Birkin eventually came to the event.  After a few press pictures, journalists confused me for some hidden child or cousin of the family which was an interesting experience. I never thought the resemblance was that strong, but hey I’ll take it.

There’s more to this story in Remix magazine out Dec 1st in most news agencies and online at isubscribe.

The Clash

I’m thinking your split personality can thrive this summer. Make it a collage of colours and a mix up of lace, animal, floral and folksy prints the more dissimilar the better!

Holding Court

In a week of exhibitions and gallery openings in Sydney, Sibella Court,  Interior Stylist, Author and good friend opened at Barometer Gallery in Paddington, a virtual space from her book, Etcetera.

“You can touch, see, marvel & enjoy, as if you are within the photographs, discovering them in a space that you exist in, rather than the book that you hold within your hands.” Sibella wearing Flannel dress and Christian Louboutin wedges.

This Time It’s Personal

This Thursday Sun Studios will hold an exhibition of personal work from local photographers to raise money for Movember. A great way to build awareness about men’s health and support our amazing local talent.
Below, Steven Chee and Derek Henderson share an image with us.

“I shot this picture in Palm Springs on an editorial trip this year. It was after the first shot of the day and I was running to find the location for shot 2. The sun was rising quickly and I was on the lookout for the perfect palm tree background when I came across this car hidden away in the corner” – Steven.

“I used this image as part of a campaign for Shibui way back in 1999 and I’ve always wanted to exhibit it. So why not for raising money for men’s prostate cancer research”- Derek.
