If there’s one thing we’re spoilt for choice with it’s the fact there’s no shortage of stylish Australian women to turn to for fashion inspiration. We do laidback, casual style like no other place on earth. It was hard to narrow them down but here’s a shortlist of celebs, models and bloggers who are flying the the Australian fashion flag and doing it oh-so well… Happy Australia Day!
She first came on the scene as the fresh-faced star of a Tourism Australia ad and over the years Worthington has cemented her place on well-dressed lists with her always on-trend wardrobe. Her style has evolved over the years from laidback beach babe to a more polished, yet still relaxed style and she can go from whimsical florals one minute to an edgy all-black ensemble the next. Her edgy bob inspired many a woman to go for the chop, and now her shorter, pixie style also has us experiencing pangs of hair envy.
Her early Miss Universe days catapulted her into the limelight but it’s Campbell’s evolution into the style icon she is today that we’re sure has inspired many a like on Instagram and many pins on wardrobe inspiration Pinterest boards nationwide. Whether she’s working out, heading to a black tie event or just casually hanging out at home, Campbell’s looks inspire much wardrobe lust striking just the right cohesive balance every single time.
As one of my co-stars on Fashion Bloggers and also a dear friend, Fairfax’s style has always been on-point through the years. While her looks are always perfectly edited, it’s her ability to accessorise with gorgeous statement earrings or killer heels that I’m sure inspires people to bookmark her every look.
The inimitable fashion director of Australian Vogue has the kind of innate sense of style that produces edgy, fashion forward looks time and time again. It’s no wonder she’s a favourite of street style snappers around the world. It’s Centenera’s ability to tap into the heartbeat of fashion and unearth trends before they’ve even begun that has fashionistas everywhere wanting to copy and paste her style.
The model and ambassador of David Jones can look equally as good in ladylike separates as she does in a striking gown on the red carpet. Her look is effortless and at only 22 years old, she’s definitely one who will only no doubt give us plenty more fashion inspiration in the years to come.
If there’s one thing Australia knows how to do it’s produce stunningly beautiful models. Like Montana Cox, Gomes is also a David Jones ambassador, and each time she hits the red carpet, posts on Instagram or is starring in an editorial, the common thread is that she has us wanting exactly what she’s wearing.
As on of Australia’s top fashion designers, most notably known for the unique silhouettes and edgy looks she sends down the runway season after season, it’s no surprise that Ellery’s own personal style is always just the right mix of daring mixed with a touch of attitude. The designer favours ensembles in all-black and is further proof that you can never go wrong with a touch of onyx.
The amount of Camilla & Marc pieces I currently have in my possession is all due to Camilla Freeman-Topper’s ability to design collection after collection that just taps into my love of tailored pieces with a unique point of view. Off duty, Freeman-Topper’s style is worthy of it’s own runway show. Favouring bold, dramatic prints and colours paired with simple wardrobe staples such as a black pant with a blazer, her style is the kind that can mix glamour with simplicity and just make it work.
If there’s one thing I’ve admired working with Zanita Whittington it’s her ability to push fashion boundaries. Favouring bold prints and colours, her look is anything but wallflower and it is what definitely makes her style stand out from the crowd. She’s not afraid to experiment with fashion and is certainly not a slave to trends, she’ll always take an outfit and make it uniquely her own.
Her wardrobe is always comprised of black, white and grey and it’s a colour palette that makes Donaldson’s wardrobe so perfectly pulled together at all times. Her accessories, whether it be a pair of slick, sky-high stilettos or an understated clutch or bag are always elegant and on-point.
Her eye for photography also extends to an eye for pulling together just the right look. Shadforth’s wardrobe is a nod to Australian style in its laidback elegance and is always about clean lines with touches of colour or bold accessories to make it her own. She’s certainly inspired me in our time working together on Fashion Bloggers!
