What I Wore: 2019 Melbourne Cup

5th November, 2019

It’s without a doubt one of my fave events to dress for and this year’s Melbourne Cup I wanted to go for a look that was pretty and feminine. Enter this pastel pink Macgraw dress. I wanted to wear a local designer this year and this frock definitely fit the brief. What I loved about this dress was that the overall design is pared back but elevated by the finishing touches. The diamante flower buttons gave it a touch of playfulness whilst injecting a bit of bling. Meanwhile the blouson sleeve and A-line skirt offer up some on trend elements.

The vibe of the dress demanded interesting accessories. Headwear is so important on Cup day and this Sylvy Earl straw boater in a similar shade to the dress provided the ideal complementary piece. It was also great to be able to incorporate a little texture. The feathered bag was a lot of fun and worked well with the pretty vibe of my ensemble. Lace up heels provided a slightly little grittier element. The final finishing touch was the selection of beautiful Chaumet jewels I was wearing. The gorgeous rings really lifted my entire outfit whilst adding a luxe touch that was just made for Cup day.

What I Wore: Country Cool

22nd October, 2019

Light, easy breezy dresses are a mainstay of my spring/summer wardrobe. And for good reason. They’re versatile, easy to wear and look effortlessly chic. The elegant colour palette of vibrant yellow in this Aje dress worked back against crisp white is perfect for spring and is an easy go-to. The sweet embroidery helps lift this look and gives it an accent feature that allows the dress to pop. The simple silhouette also makes the dress a style chameleon, making it easy to pair with everything from a blazer to a cardi to understated accessories or something that pops.

I could easily wear this dress with slides or sandals for a more casual look but I wanted to add shoes that would ground the look a little more. Ankle boots worn with a dress is always a great combination so I opted to pair the dress with Louis Vuitton ankle boots. It’s also a great shoe for such a setting as it gives the overall vibe of the dress a slightly more rustic feel. To finish off the look I went for a relaxed approach to accessorising and layered two of my favourite necklaces. An easy yet impactful look.

What I Wore: Field of Dreams

15th October, 2019

During a recent photoshoot at Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley the picturesque setting was the perfect time to showcase some of my favourite spring looks. Enter this gorgeous Aje dress. There’s nothing I love more than a crisp white look which has a relaxed yet polished vibe that’s perfect for this time of year. The beautiful wattle pattern on this dress adds a slightly rustic feel, which is perfectly offset by the modern cut-outs on the dress. I’m all about a statement sleeve these days and these blouson sleeves add a soft, feminine touch to my overall look.

Whenever I’m wearing something that’s quite pretty in its silhouette, I like to add accessories with a little more grit. Which is why I opted for these Louis Vuitton ankle boots. They help ground the look and cut through the softer elements of the dress. To let the frock take centre stage I decided on simple jewellery, adding a Dior necklace as my final finishing touch.

What I Wore: Lexus Melbourne Cup Tour launch

9th June, 2018

Every year since 2003 the Melbourne Cup Tour has visited more than 400 rural, regional and metropolitan areas to give people the chance to see the iconic 18-carat gold Lexus Melbourne Cup trophy in the flesh. This year, the Cup will tour 37 countries including New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Ireland and for the first time South Korea. As a Lexus ambassador I was thrilled to attend the launch in Melbourne, alongside champion jockey Michelle Payne and Flemington ambassador Georgia Connolly.

For such an important event I wanted to wear something classic but also with some bold touches. I think you can’t go wrong with monochrome so I decided on this DVF midi dress with a honeycomb print. I think it was understated and polished but the pattern helped give the look some depth. To tie the look together I wore simple black heels with a crossover strap and sheer tights (it’s freezing in Melbourne so these also helped keep me warm!).

I think accent pieces in a strong colour work really well against a black and white canvas. I couldn’t have asked for a more fitting piece of headwear than this hot pink felt hat by one of my fave milliners, Nerida Winter. The colour allowed my outfit to pop without being too overwhelming and when we were able to find a matching lipstick shade it was a dream pairing. By adding just the right amount of colour, I think the outfit was really taken up a notch and able to stand out.

What I Wore: Lexus Melbourne Cup announcement

15th February, 2018

I was thrilled to head down to Melbourne this week to a big event at Flemington Racecourse that saw Lexus announced as the new principal sponsor of the Melbourne Cup. Having been a Lexus ambassador for several years I was excited to be there alongside my parents to hear the announcement.

I kept my look classic and elegant for such an occasion and was immediately drawn to a white Alex Perry dress with a drop waist and full skirt. It was understated and polished and was in keeping with the tone of the day. I always love some statement making accessories so this veil with a gold and black scorpion added a dramatic flair and metallic Giambattista Valli heels, which had adorable little bows as a finishing touch. In keeping with the vibe of my outfit I went for vintage inspired curls as a way to tie the ensemble together. Dressing up for this event has me already excited for other racing events on my calendar this year, especially Melbourne Cup!

Date with Kate: Elyse Taylor

26th November, 2017

Elyse and I catching up in the Lexus Design Pavilion at Melbourne Cup

Australian model Elyse Taylor was discovered at the age of 18 and went on to walk for Victoria’s Secret, Dolce & Gabbana and Tommy Hilfiger and has been on the cover of Vogue, Elle and Harper’s Bazaar. The 30-year old, born in Sydney and now based in the New York, is now the face of Nude by Nature. Here Taylor chats to me about motherhood and modelling and shares how she maintains her healthy glow.

What is a day in the life of you?
Depends where I am. If I’m at home it’s spent with my daughter, my dog, drop off and pick ups from school, gym, cooking and repeat. If I’m away for work, then gym and work and FaceTime my daughter and I’m usually at an airport.

What have you been working on at the moment?
I was lucky enough to have been invited back for Derby Day and Melbourne Cup with Lexus and I’ve actually been designing my own swimwear range with the Sydney-based brand, Bondi Born which is really exciting.

What is your favourite beauty fix?
Love a good hydrating facial especially the triad facial at Dr Colbert in New York.

What is the secret to glowing skin?
I really believe it’s your diet and staying hydrated. But as for putting products on my face, I always like to use natural products like the Nude by Nature highlighting sticks to give you that extra kick!

What is your favourite travel destination?
A beach. Any beach. I’m a water baby.

How do you stay fit?
I work out 5 times a week. I love it for my mind, my body and for work.

Do you like to cook? What is your specialty?
I do like to cook but recently I’ve become nervous about cooking for grown ups because I’ve been really only cooking for Lila (my daughter) for the past 3 years. I used to make an amazing seafood pasta. And I do whip up a pretty great breakfast.

How do you juggle motherhood and your modelling career?
Like every single mother, you just do it. You try and find balance where you can and if you can’t, you try not to beat yourself up about it and do your absolute best.

What is your favourite activity with Lila?
Cuddling! I’m not sure it’s hers but we also love to bake together.

What are you most proud of in your life so far?
My daughter, always.

What has been your career highlight?
Victoria’s Secret and my Vogue covers.

Living in New York, what do you miss about Sydney?
I miss the beaches and the outdoor lifestyle.

What’s up next for you?
For me, I’ll be shooting and launching the Bondi Born swimwear range and Nude by Nature is releasing their new amazing lip colors.

What’s the secret to a good photo?
I love photos where you are able to capture special moments! But if you’re trying to take a good photo of yourself, try taking 800 hopefully you will get one that you like.

What makes you smile the most?
My daughter.

What advice would you give to someone wanting to make it in the modelling industry?
To be strong and treat it as a business. It’s extremely competitive and a lot of hard work.

How is New York different to Australia for modelling work?
There is definitely more consistent work and a larger range in types of jobs in New York. But I really do love both places and enjoy my time in both. One is not necessarily better than the other, they are just different.

What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever received?
Life is tough but so are you.

What do you always carry in your handbag?
Paw paw everywhere and always.

Do you have rules for how you use social media?
I use it for work purposes only.

What I Wore: A touch of glamour

3rd October, 2017

There’s always something special about being given the opportunity to get really dolled up once in awhile. One such occasion was the Prix de Marie Claire Awards in Sydney. I loved being able to dial up the glamour in a lurex Alex Perry ballgown—a definite departure from what I’d be wearing on an average weekday evening! As I was presenting the Lexus Next Gen Award on the night I wanted a strong look and one that had a striking element to it which is what drew me to the Alex Perry gown— my favourite feature was the voluminous skirt which gave it a touch of drama and statement-making element. I love the ballerina inspired bodice and the delicate spaghetti straps which helped to balance the overall volume of the dress. Also when it comes to achieving a glam look for an evening event I think you can never go wrong with lurex—it’s the perfect fabric for an occasion that commands a lot of dazzle. As the dress was already so impactful I opted to keep the rest of my look quite simple with studded black Alaïa heels and a relaxed up do to maintain balance and to keep the look from being too over the top.

Date with Kate: Anna Quan

20th August, 2017

Australian designer Anna Quan (Anna Quan Hoang) first debuted her collection at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia in 2015. Since then she has been featured locally and internationally in Vogue, Harpers Bazaar and Elle magazine and has dressed international celebrities including Kendall Jenner and Karlie Kloss. This week Anna was awarded the Lexus Next Gen Award for Best Up and Coming Designer at the Prix De Marie Claire Awards. I caught up with her to chat about what it means to her to win this award, her first big break and her top styling secret.

What is a day in the life of you?

I usually get up at 8.30am, have a double shot of coffee, do some emails and get to work at 10am. I work in the studio until around 6pm and head home for dinner and get back in studio around 9pm and work a few more hours. Then head home (it’s only a five minute drive) and decompress for an hour or so and get to bed at 2-2.30am.

Congratulations on winning the Lexus Marie Claire Next Gen Award – Best and Up Coming Designer. What did it feel like to win?

Thank you. It was a mixture of utter surprise and delayed excitement. It completely stunned me and caught me by surprise. I had absolutely no idea. All the candidates were all so deserving.

What did it mean to win the award? 

The endorsement and support from Marie Claire and Lexus is phenomenal. The prize is so well respected within the industry with past winners like Toni Maticevski, Dion Lee, Kym Ellery – it just puts you personally on a real high but also career wise it can open a lot of doors that might have otherwise remained closed. It gives me that extra fire in my belly to keep going when things get tough.

Did you know that you would enter the fashion world when you were growing up?

No I didn’t know that – not exactly. There was always this feeling of longing to be a part of fashion but it felt out of my reach when I was growing up. I wasn’t a cool kid. I lived in Mount Colah. There was a lot of emphasis put on pursuing a more traditional career path like medicine.

How did you get into the industry?

I graduated from law school and enrolled straight into a fashion design course at Fashion Design Studio (formerly East Sydney Tafe). It was my carpe diem moment and very much a case of now or never! The rest is history.

What was your first big break?

Dressing Kendall Jenner after my first group show at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Australia. Her styling team picked my looks from a YouTube clip they found online of the runway show. It was incredibly random and fortunate.

How did you get your name out there as an emerging designer?

The most successful thing for me has been creating a signature product and getting it out there. I approached street style stars who I thought would really align with my aesthetic and it took off from there when they were snapped for Vogue or W magazine during Paris Fashion Week.

How would you describe the essence of your design philosophy?

My approach has been to make clothing and fashion relevant to the everyday and to elevate that. I always like to take something traditional and subvert and twist it a little. I take great pleasure in someone doing a double take and re-examining what they think they saw.

How did you develop your own personal style?

After high school I got more of a chance to explore my personal style at university and I did the cliché thing and moved into a share house in Newtown. I was an Arts student and everyone was a lot less conservative and more experimental with how they dressed at university. Living in Newtown helped as it was more edgy and I really enjoy people watching and take inspiration from that. People are not afraid to be different.

What is your number one styling secret?

Find yourself a good alterationist. Good fit is key and often underrated. It’s a little bit more effort but it makes a world of difference when the fit and proportion are adjusted specifically for your body.

What has been your favourite piece across all of your collections?

Pants. I love to wear a really wide leg palazzo style pant. They just make you look so much taller.

Where is the majority of your customer base from?

50 per cent is based in Australia and a good 50 per cent is based mainly in the USA east coast. It seems to attract a lot of New Yorkers.

What are your favourite styles at the moment?

I am loving big voluminous sleeves and long line trench coats. It’s a nice counterpoint between romanticism and utilitarianism. I’m always attracted to unlikely elements.

What big trends can we expect for spring and summer?

I think volume is going to continue to be a big trend for tops and dresses and bottoms.

What is your best ‘work perk’?

I have a mid-week day off on Wednesdays as I work through weekends. I try not to schedule anything in to allow myself time to do life related stuff, I sleep in if I need to. I do some light emailing and work as necessary but on Wednesdays I try to cut myself some slack.

What is the most challenging aspect of owning your own your own fashion label?

Learning when and how to say no. It’s really important to be true to your vision and sometimes it’s easy to get caught up and to be told by everyone to do something or be something you’re not. It’s taken me a while to master confidence and self-belief to say no to people and just do my own thing.

Your designs have caught the eye of many celebrities including Kendall Jenner, who wore your jumpsuit to Kim and Kanye’s lavish pre-wedding luncheon. Who were you most excited about when you found out they were wearing your designs?

Karlie Kloss. She did this shoot with Gilles Bensimon and the shirt she wore was actually a customer order. The editor at The Editorialist in New York had bought a shirt of mine seasons before it was a thing. She got her to wear it for a shoot. I had no idea this was going to happen and it was amazing.

Who else would you love to see in your designs?

Tilda Swinton and Caroline de Maigret. I am obsessed with those women. They are just so strong, feminine and chic all at once. I get this vibe that they don’t really give a toss what people think and just do their own thing.

What does success mean to you?

Being surrounded by the people I love, generating financial freedom from doing what I love and importantly – good health. It’s not necessarily being in every single store or the balance of my bank account.

Who inspires you?

Serious boss ladies. It’s not one person in particular, but there are a few women around me who run their own businesses, have kids and families and just get on with things and they are killing it. I am always in awe. It’s not to say they don’t get stressed or they don’t get frazzled, but they manage it with grace, guts and tenacity.

Who do you turn to for support?

My husband, he’s my partner in crime.  He’s not in fashion and it’s great because it gives me perspective when dealing with obstacles and issues.

Where is your favourite travel destination?

Paris. I am lucky enough to go three times a year for work. Even when the traffic is hideous and I am cabbing into town from Charles de Gaulle airport. I can’t help but smile and enjoy the architecture, the quaint little cobbled laneways and watching people go about their daily lives. It’s totally corny to say this but it’s my spiritual home.

What do you like to do to relax?

Gardening and running. Gardening because I love to grow things. Running outdoors because it’s a great form of stress relief and after a while – you feel like you are flying. It really taught me to cope and deal with pain and discomfort – these things are transient and part of the process.

Where do you see yourself in five years?

I would really like to continue to do what I am doing but on a larger scale and selling to the right stores. Ideally – getting more help and growing my team and having more time to slow down and smell the roses.

The Block Judge, Neale Whitaker and I catch up at the Lexus Design Pavilion

 

Neale Whitaker is a judge on television’s The Block – which airs its season finale on November 13 – and editor of Vogue Living. Whitaker, 54, talks to me about the most frustrating part of being a Block judge, what makes him cringe, and his top tip to quickly rejuvenate any home.

Who do you think will win tonight’s finale? 

Ah, that’s a tough one. The judges don’t have the best form in picking the winner! Auction day is unpredictable and there are so many variables  – the auction order, the reserve prices and basically the depth of the potential buyers’ pockets. All of the apartments offer the luxury of space and an opportunity to live in a heritage building that’s been restored with integrity.

What has been your favourite room from this season and why?

Kim and Chris [Elliot] delivered the ultimate master bedroom with the proportions of a luxury hotel suite. I loved Julia [Treuel] and Sasha [Wright-Neville’s] kitchen, and Will and Karlie’s master bedroom with the wooden panelling was pretty special.

What have you learnt from being a judge?

From the contestants I’ve learned the importance of budget, careful planning and understanding your potential market. From my fellow judges, I’ve learned to see things through an interior designer’s eye – it’s far more detailed than a magazine editor’s eye.

What is the most frustrating element of being a judge on The Block?

When the contestants don’t take our advice and believe they’re being victimised. They’re not! We always try to be constructive and our advice is based on experience and knowledge. We want them to win, not lose.

Why do you think renovating shows have become so popular? 

We’re a nation obsessed with real estate, so the renovation frenzy feels like a logical progression. Renovating is achievable – it’s something we can do to improve our lives and increase the value of our property. There’s definitely a competitive edge there, too, regardless of whether you’re on The Block!

After so many seasons, do room reveals still excite you?

Yes they do! I guess the day they don’t will be the day to hang up my judge’s hat. There is always that sense of the unexpected and of anticipation based on what was delivered the previous week and the advice we offered.

When there is backlash on social media against you, how do you deal with this? 

You have to take it on the chin. That’s all you can do. Or maybe not look. What did Taylor Swift say? “Haters gonna hate.”

How would you describe your own interior style preferences?

It’s a terribly overused word, but eclectic. [My partner] David [Novak-Piper] and I like such a mix of styles and periods but we get a lot of pleasure out of making them all work together to create a home.

What trends make you cringe?

Trends generally make me cringe. That might sound like a strange thing for a magazine editor to say but I believe a home is a really personal thing. I would never buy – or encourage someone to buy – anything simply because it’s on trend.

What is your best advice for first-time renovators?

Plan, budget, plan, budget and then plan again. Just be really sure about what you want to achieve from the renovations. Is it for you or for resale? Be prepared for the renovations to take longer than anticipated and budget for 25 to 30 per cent more than you think you will need.

What are the most popular interior trends at the moment?

Don’t talk to me about trends [laughs]! But, realistically, we’re seeing a lot more colour at the moment and a real emphasis on anything hand-made and hand-crafted. I think we’re also seeing more confidence to mix things up. We’re starting to realise that it’s OK to be individual.

What is a quick fix to rejuvenate your home? 

A new rug is always the best fix for me. When you walk into a room, what’s on the floor is the first thing you register. And think about changing your art and adding a wall mirror. It can double the size of a room. New bed linen is [also] an amazing pick-me-up.

What is a day in the life of you?

Juggling! My main priority is editing Vogue Living, so most days will find me in the office with the editorial team, but I somehow manage to squeeze in quite a few other activities like emceeing and public speaking. Most evenings will find me at industry events, and when we’re filming The Block, I’m in Melbourne every Sunday. Life’s busy.

What led you down this career path? 

Life! I started in the fashion industry, moved into publishing, moved from the UK to Australia [in 1999] and then moved from food magazines to interior design magazines. That’s when I knew I’d found the place where I wanted to be. And then I stumbled into TV! I’ve been very lucky and I’m very grateful for the opportunities that have come my way.

You were an editor of Belle Magazine and now editor at Vogue Living. How has your role evolved? 

A magazine editor’s role is always evolving. Learning to harness the power of digital and social media is challenging and exciting. That’s not something I really had to worry about in my previous role.

What has been your greatest career achievement so far? 

I’m proud of many of the things I’ve achieved in my career. Perhaps I’m proudest of my longevity and managing to stay relevant. I hope I can keep doing that.

D’Marge named you as one of the most stylish men in Australia. What is your style secret?

I’m sorry to say I don’t really have one! I think my personal style is very understated, quite classic, and intuitive. At 54, I feel I know what suits me and I tend to stick with it.

What is your favourite room in your Surry Hills home?

The kitchen – it’s totally where we live our life! And it will be again in the new apartment we’re just about to move to in Alexandria.

Where is your favourite travel destination when you want to escape from Sydney? 

That’s easy. The south coast of NSW. It’s where I recharge and where I feel the most relaxed. I call it my “happy place”.

What are your plans for the holiday season? 

Our favourite thing is a road trip. We love to put our dogs in the car [weimaraners Otis and Ollie] and head off. This year we’re heading to country Victoria for Christmas, then back home via Melbourne and the NSW South Coast.

What is next for you? 

Whatever comes next! I’m enjoying the opportunities that are coming my way but I would love to do more TV. It’s such a powerful way of communicating. Watch this space – that’s all I’m saying!

The Block season finale airs on Sunday, November 13, at 7pm on Channel 9.

My 2016 Melbourne Cup Diary

3rd November, 2016

kate_waterhouse_melb_cup_2016-48

Another year, another Melbourne Cup done!

This year, my day started early at our apartment in Melbourne. That is where we stay with my family so it was great to be able to spend Cup Day with them. With three kids and a baby present it was certainly busy but it was nice that my girls and my niece and nephew were all with us. I spent the morning getting ready with Mum and my sister-in-law Hoda and as always it was fun for us to all get our hair and makeup done together. My outfit was already sorted (it’s always something I like to lock in well in advance) so it was just a matter of putting the final finishing touches to it and I was ready to walk out the door.

We were lucky enough to be picked up by a Lexus car to take us to the Birdcage and when we got there headed straight for the Lexus Design Pavilion, which as per usual was on another level. It was definitely the place to be in the Birdcage and stood out as the most stylish and sophisticated marquee. The interiors were amazing and the architecture of the entire building was striking. Guests in the Pavilion included Jessica Gomes, Emma Freedman and Margaret Zhang so it was a great opportunity to catch up with a lot of people. We had an amazing lunch experience in there too which involved a three course tasting plate hosted by Ben Shewry, the head chef and owner of Attica restaurant in Melbourne. Needless to say, the food was delicious.

I was also on Lexus ambassador duties on the day so I had to juggle multiple media interviews including TV and radio spots which is always fun! However the most enjoyable part of the day is definitely being able to watch the race with my family, Mum especially. She had a runner in the race called Excess Knowledge so we watched the it with her in the owners’ stand. It’s always really nice being able to take in the race with her as I know all the hard work that goes into making it to the Melbourne Cup.

Cup Day is always a crazy busy day and it often passes by in a whirlwind of admiring all the beautiful outfits and headwear, toasting the day with champagne and race day duties for me but it’s something I look forward to every year. Counting down to 2017!
