what cha doin?


Annabella takes the Oyster comeback cover and 2 editorials…An Australian first? Or a long shoot spread through the magazine? On second look it’s Elvis Di Fazio shooting Miss Barber for both editorials but for this one she shares the stage with interspersing male models. Stylist Rinney Lennox and hair and make up Jody Oliver.


Showing off one half of NoDi$count Cami James’ neckpiece over the Arnsdorf red dress,and bustier with black lover cape. I love that this shoot looks British Dazed and yet is almost entirely Australian designers and mixes in newcomer Cami’s designs with ease.

Beautiful model Samantha Harris. Stunning dress with piece de resistance red ankle socks and tranquil setting, I love this Antipodium home page. When I lived in London I loved seeing the Australian label in liberty, now in a less divine setting I got to see a fraction of the range at DJ’s, these days it’s much better to shop online.

new kids up on the block


Julia Nobis. The 17 year old Bondi girl has joined Christina Carey as the new girls to push out last years star Australians at the shows. 2009 showed off Myf & Tallulah who are now students, Catherine McNeil is planning a wedding, Sarah Stephens and last years newbie Rachel Rutt are MIA, and Miranda Kerr may just be saving herself for Balenciaga. Abbey Lee is back in between her editorial conquering so it leaves room for Russh tomboy and Pricillas find Julia.


As well as booking the Calvin Klein exclusive in New York, Julia has already walked all the big shows in London, Christopher Kane (the most important in the whole fashion week calendar if you ask me) Pringle of Scotland, Richard Nicholl and she also opened and closed for Topshop Unique.


Miss Nobis has my favorite kind of translucent skin, strong all round features and ability to look fresh and chameleon depending on her make up and hair. Love this new girl.

Another girl signed to Pricillas starring this season is Christina Carey. Miss Carey bounced onto the scene in 2007 with her iconic Shiseido face she shot with Tim Walker early last year and has has quiet steady work but getting booked in the all star model cast for Marc Jacobs is her ticket back to the top.


Marc Jacobs, Chado Ralph Rucci and Michael Angel shows in New York and more recently Antonio Berardi in London. The Melbourne girl has stunning European looks so it will be great to see her shine in Milan and Paris.

dear alice….


Dear Alice…. and Paulie…. you are both amazing. Am so sad I couldn’t make it back stage as a surprise. Please put the embroided leather shorts and a long sleeve sheer shirt on my order form. I can’t wait to see more of the show…miss you both!

I admit it. I am fickle. I check certain blogs…not many, daily, many weekly and those who don’t post at least once every 2 days I seem to lose interest in very quickly. Then there are some blogs like by Photographer Darren McDonald that I check regularly even though he posts very randomly because his choice of models and photos are just that good. He tends to capture many young Australian models years before they hit the big time.


Here he captures Georgia Fowler’s sweet innocence and shows her intense variety… right now, she alongside Alexandra Spencer represents the new Myer collections as well as pouting in the latest Oyster. Georgia is with Pricillas and has that naughty prettiness, angry yet commercial and one of my new favorites.

tie dye tassles and some misty glass


Big lights will inspire you. As the song goes. Only a few self portrait poses on stylebubble at New York Fashion Week and already Susie is representing 3 of my favourite Australian labels…Tina Kalivas in a tie dye dress from her 2009 Fortune range, an Estelle Deve Somni necklace, and a Michelle Jank acrylic headband. Probably rating number one in the world at best mixed up layering and a walking canvas for world wide young designers… she should hire a team to start an online store under her coloured rule of thumb.

malaya jewels…


One of my best friends and a very talented jewellery maker lives on the other side of the world. If the sliding doors were on my side I would now be at Sophie’s house planning outfits for London and Paris fashion week like we did last September. Now I am planning a beach weekend and she is working hard at her ever growing vintage jewellery line Malaya. Back in the day when her be-jewelled career was just starting she worked alongside the beautiful stylist Charlotte Stockdale, and recently she got to collaborate on the Etam fashion show held at Hotel Ritz in Paris back in January during Couture Fashion Week, for the presentation of the new Natalia Vodianova collection. A hot pic of Abbey Lee in red lace wearing your jewellery is just one image in her amazing folio.


Check out her one off pieces because not only are they beautiful but you will be the only one in the world to have one! Wish I was having a Turkish, hiding from the rain and planning our Eurostar trip right now….Miss you Much!
