She’s featured on the Forbes 30 under 30 list, Business of Fashion’s 500 People Shaping the Global Industry and InStyle Australia’s Women of Style Awards… all this from a digital business Nicole Warne founded at the age of 20 under the name Gary Pepper Girl.
Now the digital influencer has consulted and collaborated with brands such as Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Valentino and Net-a-Porter and is currently a digital consultant for QANTAS.
Accolades and accomplishments aside, there is one thing over 2.3 million gravitate to Nicole Warne for and that’s her impeccable style. Favouring a look that’s polished, feminine and classic, she gravitates towards tailored pieces with a strong, modern aesthetic. Her look always feels considered, perfectly put together and with just the right smattering of interesting accessories to give each look her own unique touch. It’s a rare thing to not want something from every outfit she posts, but lucky for us, each one is better than that last.
