St Frock Prea Dress, Jo Mercer Gwyneth Heels, Liberte Gracie Gold Necklace, Fiera Boutique Earrings.

Whenever I think of the colour navy, I envision Kate Middleton – the heir of sophistication, swanning about the palace gardens, glowing like the regal goddess she is. With blue representing the official royal colour, it is no surprise Her Royal Highness often styles a deep navy hue when stepping out for public appearances.

Channelling the Duchess and her timeless style, I’m donning quite the regal navy number, a dreamy chiffon dress with floaty sleeves and an a-line skirt from St Frock. In quintessential Kate Middleton Muse, I’m teaming this dress with a classic point toe heel from Jo Mercer in a demure shade of beige-nude. For a more effortlessly casual look, swap the heels for an elegant tan ankle boot, like this style here.

Finesse the final look, with some embellishment. Personally, I favour gold finishes when enhancing rich, deep hues like navy, so I’m styling a dainty gold necklace by Liberte and adding some ladylike pearl earrings with a modern hoop twist from Fiera Boutique.

Do you hype this royal look as much as I do? Are you partial to navy and if so gals, how do you style your regal pieces? Let me know if the comments below!

Golden Globes 2018: Best Dressed

Golden Globes 2018 Best Dressed

The red carpet was the only pop of colour at this year’s Golden Globes as A-listers donned black in support of the #TimesUp campaign. With a noir dress code, gowns sort detail through embellishment, texture and shape, taking elegance to new levels and channelling chic!

Judging the red carpet arrivals has always been a time honoured tradition in my family, once lead by my nan who had an impeccable eye for good style. Presenting my Top 5 Golden Globes 2018 Best Dressed!

Alessandra Mastronardi in Chanel


For me, this was the clear winner on the red carpet, comprising of my three favourite textures; mesh, sequin and feathers. This Chanel Pre Fall 2018 number has a whimsical and enchanting element and upon first seeing this on my feed, I was instantly reminded of an opulent Odile from Swan Lake.

Samara Weaving in Laura Basci Couture


Simple, elegant with a graceful fall of the fabric, Samara Weaving looks particularly stunning in her Laura Basci gown. With a gathered waist and scooped neckline, this frock eagerly flatters Samara’s petite frame and that embellished fabric? Divine!

Nicole Kidman in Givenchy


Very Wicked Witch of the West vibes going on in this dramatic number, but I absolutely adore Nicole’s red carpet chic, as she makes a statement in this Givenchy frock. I can’t decide what I love more: that detailed, laced bodice or the grace of that mermaid skirt, either way it’s a 10 from me!

Naomi Campbell in Jean Paul Gaultier Haute Couture

Queen on the runway and the red carpet, there’s no denying Naomi Campbell absolutely slays glam! She looks like Haute Couture Barbie with a one sided dress, fastened with an oversized bow – my favourite! I also love the pleated detail throughout the bodice, which falls into a seperate train. Just fierce!

Diane Kruger in Prada

The more I look at this number, the more I fall in love with this ethereal mesh gown styled by the beautiful Diane Kruger. The cross over detail seen in the bodice is further highlighted with a unique trim of silver trinkets. The cape is also a sophisticated statement, creating a billowing train behind the starlet.

I’de love to hear your thoughts on my Top 5 or perhaps your favourite red carpet moments! Were you living for the noir? Leave me a note in the comments below! x

MBFF: McKinney’s Jewellers Group Show

On Wednesday evening the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Festival Brisbane spoke notes of sophistication and luxury as the McKinney’s Jewellers Group Show took to the runway. The evening showcased a fabulous selection of bespoke, high end jewels, paired with favourite Queensland designers including Paul Hunt, Pia du Pradal, Irma J Smith, Jack Sullivan, Sacha Drake and more.

Sitting FROW, I admired the precious gemstones, diamonds, pearls and sparklers up close and personal, including the surprise unveil of Margot McKinney’s suite of spectacular, perfectly matched pearls and tanzanite; a rare, multi-million dollar masterpiece, fittingly named the Once in a Blue Moon. See the gorgeous piece below, along with my highlights from the runway!
