editor’s letter

“It was full of love. We were free, and, for that moment, it was just Bud and Jes, which was so beautiful.” – JESINTA FRANKLIN I vividly recall a conversation I had with Jesinta Franklin (then Campbell) a few years ago at a Salvatore Ferragamo cocktail event in Sydney. She arrived looking fitter and trimmer than I’d ever seen her, in thigh-high black leather boots and a little black minidress. While we were chatting, I asked her what she had changed and she told me she was working hard at being healthy and fit, basically the best version of herself. That she knew she only had one shot at success, so she wasn’t going to blow it. I was struck by her determination, and have continued to watch her career trajectory…

Max Doyle “I didn’t want to hide from the midday sun, like you usually do when shooting in Australia, because I wanted some of the shots to feel really hot and harsh, like an Australian summer,” says the photographer, who captured the spirit of an idyllic holiday in Byron Bay, New South Wales, in “The Beach” (page116). “I was hoping it would feel like a chilled beach hang. ” The nostalgic-looking frames from the shoot were achieved by … “a little bit of grading mixed with the beautiful Byron light”. The best thing about shooting in Byron is … “the vibe, the food and lots of beautiful beaches to choose from with not too many people on them”. This summer I’m looking forward to … “being with my family, maybe switching my phone off”. Naomi…

THE BIG COVER-UP Reading “The Death of the Bikini” [BAZAAR December] really gave me something to think about. Like all women, I want to have fun and enjoy a day by the ocean instead of worrying about almost every inch of skin showing in a bikini. I’m still accepting my body for how it is. Women should be able to be comfortable wearing swimwear, no matter their race or religion. In my opinion, one-pieces are much more stylish and sophisticated, now that there are so many modern designs available. I’m happy to see so many women embrace the one-piece; it has definitely come back to stay. Instead of putting on a bikini and heading to the beach, I’ll try a one-piece next time. That way I can relax and feel comfortable…

jesinta franklin

This model is one busy woman, so it’s no surprise that she likes to keep her wardrobe sleek and simple (all the better for showing off that boxing-toned body). While she was married in a gown by an international designer (custom Vera Wang, thank you very much), she is a champion of Australian brands, which provided some of her biggest sartorial hits of 2016, from a white strapless Christopher Esber to a bright yellow Rebecca Vallance dress that matched her sunny personality. ON THE COVER Photographed by Nick Leary. Styled by Naomi Smith. Jesinta Franklin wears The Vampire’s Wife dress, $957, matchesfashion.com. Hair by Michele McQuillan at M.A.P; makeup by Linda Jefferyes at The Artist Group. Nick Leary is represented by DLM. Photographed at Milton Surf & Stables, available to hire through…

wish list

I love attention to detail, quality, innovation and interesting fabrics. When I buy something, I wear it for a long time. My style combines designer pieces with old jeans and T-shirts [5]. My husband calls me “daggy-chic”. I love my SWIMSUIT [1], and this RASH GUARD [17] will look great as a top. LE LABO YLANG 49 [2] is just the right mix of earthy and floral. My DELFINA DELLETREZ RING [3] has a playful approach to luxury I never tire of. Right now I’m coveting a SOPHIE BUHAI COLLAR [4]. I’m always wearing LEVI’S JEANS [6]. Davines [7, 14] do the best NATURAL, SUSTAINABLE PRODUCTS. This is my MUST-HAVE SHOE [8] and BAG [11]. I always carry these BEAUTY ESSENTIALS [9, 10]. JACQUEMUS [12] has really captured my attention…
