A black dress is one of those things I can’t live without. It can be the cornerstone of many a look and is so versatile, wearable and has longevity. This Camilla and Marc dress is so effortless in its design—a sleek silhouette, simple yet interesting detailing and a flattering fit. It feels very modern while maintaining the eternally classic appeal that’s synonymous with the LBD.
The beauty with black dresses is that you can take them any direction you choose. You can dress them up to be something that feels quite formal or keep them casual with understated accessories. I love the freedom that that affords me and also it’s a great way to maintain a tight edit on pieces that I own as I can utilise one item in so many different ways.
I opted to keep this look quite sleek and simple. Worn with minimal jewellery and a relaxed hairstyle it evokes a polished vibe that doesn’t feel overly ‘done’. I can see myself wearing this look for many a work function or event but it also would be a quick go-to during my down time. And that chameleonic nature is what the LBD is all about.

I’m thrilled to be able to share with everyone that Sophia and I are in Who’s Most Beautiful People issue!
I get quite a few requests to do photo shoots with Sophia, but I’m always careful with which shoots I do as I think it’s important to keep some level of privacy when it comes to my daughter. When Who told me that we’d been included in their Most Beautiful People list I knew I had to say yes and I was definitely excited to take part. They always do such beautiful photos, and I was honoured to be included on the list with Sophia. It’s a mother/daughter picture that I’ll get to keep forever as a memento, in fact, I’m planning to get it framed!
At 10 months, Sophia’s quite active and lively now – she loves crawling around and moving about and she loved being on set. The shoot took place at a gorgeous house in Sydney’s Rose Bay and Sophia was enthralled by everything from the cameras to the crew. The shoot actually took place right during her nap time, but she managed to take a little nap in the car on the way there so she was really great during the shoot!
This is now the second shoot that Sophia and I have done together (the first being this Vogue shoot) and it’s such a lovely experience to be able to have her there with me.
If you’d like to check out the rest of the issue, it’s out on newsstands now. And below are some behind the scenes pics from the shoot. Thanks for having us Who!
