editor’s letter

This issue, featuring the gorgeous Bella Hadid, was brought together in the shadow of the next, the December issue, in which we will celebrate the 60th anniversary of Vogue Australia. But that doesn’t mean it was given any less consideration, love or care by the team; in fact, quite the contrary. Editing this edition has taught me the need to re-evaluate the past – not delete it – as we move things forward. Vogue Australia was originally launched as a supplement within UK Vogue . It wasn’t until 1959 that we published our first independent, standalone magazine, with Dame Helen Mirren’s cousin on the cover, shot by the great Norman Parkinson. While poring over those early issues at the State Library of NSW, where they keep a full collection (as does the…

AMANDA MURPHY American model, radiology technologist and equestrienne, Amanda Murphy, who stars in fashion feature ‘The girl next door’, from page 176, says the shoot she worked on with Vogue creative director Jillian Davidson was captured “in two different vintage homes that felt like we had stepped out of a time machine”. Nominating the fluffy purple hat she wore on set as one of her favourite looks from the day, Murphy says she enjoyed “singing and dancing on the bathtub to Prince song Kiss and using the retractable shower head as a microphone”. SAMANTHA HARRIS “I was so excited and honoured that Vogue came along on this trip,” Australian model Samantha Harris says of her recent cross-country journey to the wilderness of the Kimberley with World Vision, which you can read about in…

IN 2015, RENOWNED photographer Robbie Fimmano captured an 18-year-old Bella Hadid for a Vogue Australia fashion feature styled by Stevie Dance. Fast-forward four years and Hadid is fronting her second cover for the magazine following her first in September 2017 with Australian model Jordan Barrett. At the time of her debut assignment, Hadid told Vogue : “My favourite part of the job is being able to work with iconic photographers I look up to, and meeting incredible people who know so much about fashion.” Australian-born New York-based Fimmano captured Hadid dressed in a series of awe-inspiring looks from the likes of Louis Vuitton, Miu Miu and Prada. “It was nice working with someone who we felt was going to take off,” he says. “She didn’t have much editorial work in her book…

LIKE MOST KIDS , I grew up on Disney, and one of my earliest memories, from when I was about three, is going to see Aladdin at the cinemas. My dad told me that everyone in the cinema was laughing at how much I was laughing. Disney sparked my imagination and provided a portal to explore the world of make-believe. Films like Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella, which are centred on the idea of creating ‘the dress’, were my favourites. It was the idea of transformation, taking characters facing adversity and giving them an opportunity to be their best self. I was also enchanted by the idea of magic. Some of my teachers even wrote letters to my parents saying I was too fixated on a fantasy world and needed a bit…

PAVÉ FAVOURS Louis Cartier had no way of knowing how ‘fierce’ would re-enter the modern lexicon as a byword for unabashed glitz, but fortuitously the jewellery maison still produces its iconic Panthère de Cartier pieces capturing simultaneously the feline allure of the animal, and that modern attitude. Pair with a stripped-back colour palette to allow to shine. PARTY OF ONE Rising to the occasion need not be uncomfortable, according to Ralph Lauren. This all-in-one illuminates the staying power of the jumpsuit even after-hours. Pair with monochromatic heels to give a lengthy illusion, but experiment with contrasting texture to amplify the impact of the shoes. BOWS AND WHISTLES For her debut collection for Chanel, Virginie Viard incorporated girlish bows and camellias – a signature of the house and reportedly Coco Chanel’s favourite flower – to emphasise…

COULD IT BE that Anne Boleyn weighed on Demna Gvasalia’s mind when he designed Balenciaga’s autumn/winter ’19/’20 collection? Sending super-tailored working women and men down the runway, Gvasalia teamed blazer dresses and Dracula-esque leather collars with chokers that sat loosely on the neck. Chains pooled at a B for Balenciaga pendant, nodding to the necklaces worn by the 16th-century Queen of England. While Gvasalia may have gained an appreciation of the style from the portraits of the royal and of Alexandra of Denmark (who famously stacked her pearl chokers to hide a scar), their introduction in fashion predates British monarchy. Harking back to Ancient Egypt, when gilded versions believed to contain healing powers were worn, periodic revisions of the choker and the chain (take the colliers de chien of the 20s;…
