editor’s letter

I am writing this letter a week after yet another Australian prime minister has been replaced by their party. Vogue does not promote political bias. Whoever governs, we encourage them to support and promote the issues that affect and engage our readership, and we celebrate them when they do. Clearly, we are in a unique position to be a voice for women, and reflect our audience’s views. Today, our readership and reach across all our platforms is wider than it has ever been. This was proven in print last month when our September issue, fronted by Kylie Jenner, sold out in supermarkets within four days, the only prior promotion being postings on our social channels as well as Kylie’s (who clearly has many keen and engaged fans in Australia). Given the huge…

TORY SHEPHERD Penning an essay in this issue about the importance of a sisterhood in politics, journalist Tory Shepherd writes about encouraging more of a female voice in parliament. “We need more diversity in general, because it will lead to better decisions, should start restoring the public’s faith in politics, and will show young Australians that there is a place for them at the highest levels,” she says. Shepherd, who usually writes about politics in South Australia, says what became clear in writing this feature for Vogue was the importance of recognising the good work our female leaders are already doing. “Women in some of the most powerful and stressful jobs in the world keep going when many of us in far less important positions sometimes struggle to face the world.” JORDEN…

enduring style

Great style rarely goes out of fashion – that’s a fact. So when you’re on to a good thing, don’t let it go. It’s a maxim Vogue highlighted in May 2015, reflecting on Italian designer Giorgio Armani’s first 40 years in business through a shoot featuring home-grown talent Abbey Lee Kershaw. Tracking his influence on the female silhouette, the photographs show just how much we’ve become partial to masculine shapes, and prove that Armani’s take on the perfect suit still reigns supreme. Honouring this same spirit, we’ve interviewed Mr Armani on page 208, and see that his powerful influence on fashion still holds true. Suit up!…

my country

My family owns a sixth-generation farm in New England, northern New South Wales, which is where I grew up. Although I’ve travelled the world and Australia and now live in southern Queensland, my heart lies in the bush. I’m a photographer and for the past five years I’ve been specialising in country weddings, so I live in an urban population but I still have deep roots back to the country, and my work revolves around bush families. Despite travelling all over the country, I hadn’t seen or heard much of the drought; then a friend posted some Instagram photos of him hand-feeding his sheep every day. I knew it was dry but I definitely didn’t understand the depth of it and how bad it was. I started calling a couple of…

vogue view point

ALL EXCESS Be the talking point, make it the conversation – go all out with accessories that are loud and bold. By Zara Wong. GRAND HEISTS There’s a glory in the unexpected: sports-inflected tones with decadent crystals are the inspiration points when mixing highs and lows. THE LOOK OF LOVE The slogan trend hits eyewear: spell it out loud with playful shapes, colours and bedazzling embellishments. OFF THE CHAIN Worn slung over both shoulders, the Gabrielle bag’s chain straps are a feature enough on their own. Pair with classic monochromes and gilded boots. Easy does it. STACK IT ON From the view up here, platform heels make their mark on the season, especially matched in polka dots. MATCH POINT There are two major statements we’d like to point out. First: team your bag to your jacket for extra points. And second:…
