editor’s letter

ONE OF THE MOST compelling stories in recent sporting history is undoubtedly that of Michelle Payne winning the Melbourne Cup in 2015. Her ride on Prince of Penzance that day — and her searing belief she’d win (despite 100–1 odds) — not only changed public perception about the ability of female jockeys, but also highlighted how rife gender discrimination is in the industry. Who could forget that famous post-race interview, when Payne definitely snared the last word. “It’s such a chauvinistic sport, a lot of the owners wanted to kick me off,” she declared. “Everyone else can get stuffed [who] think women aren’t good enough.” Actor turned director Rachel Griffiths was at a friend’s barbecue that afternoon watching the whole thing unfold on TV and knew instantaneously she’d found the movie she’d…

teresa palmer

With an impressive accumulation of credits under her belt, Australian actor Teresa Palmer’s star has been on a steady ascent for the better part of a decade. Her latest role? Michelle Payne, the first female jockey to win the Melbourne Cup, in Rachel Griffiths’s Ride Like a Girl. On the red carpet, the ever-polished Palmer opts for a steady rotation of Dior, Prada and Chanel (“Chanel, I mean, it’s a no-brainer,” she quips). Her off-duty style, meanwhile, more closely aligns with her bohemian-inspired lifestyle, courtesy of brands such as Zimmermann, Free People and Dôen. Everything is approved by her friend and stylist, Annabelle Harron. “She’s been my best friend since I was 15, from little old Adelaide,” Palmer says. “Now she’s one of the top stylists in the industry, styling…

my wish list jessica springsteen

STYLE My style is BOHEMIAN WITH AN EDGE, which is a nice contrast to my everyday riding uniform. I love what Maria Grazia Chiuri is doing with Dior. Her vision is so specific and STRONG YET FEMININE. Ralph Lauren has always been a favourite of mine for its beautiful heritage pieces and staple boots and blazers. I also love THE ROW.They seem to capture everything I’d ever want to wear while making it look effortless and chic simultaneously. My MOST-WORN PIECES are some of my mom [Patti Scialfa]’s vintage jackets, my ripped jean shorts, which I wear constantly, and simple black or white tank tops. On my A/W 2019 wish list is a LEATHER JACKET I can wear over dresses or with jeans. Because I’m constantly COMPETING AND RIDING, I don’t…

generation flake

IT’S A COUPLE of hours before I’m due to meet a friend I haven’t seen in months. We scheduled this dinner two weeks in advance after days of texting back and forth, but, alas, she has suddenly come down with a cold. I want to be sympathetic or, at the very least, surprised when her message — punctuated with an exclamation mark and heavy on the crying-face emojis — comes through. It’s not the end of the world, and maybe she really is sick, but it’s the regularity of this scenario, and the increasing inability of many friends to commit to plans in the first place, that leaves me feeling deflated and rejected. It’s not hard to see why young people today have been dubbed the unreliable generation. I love a…
