Which 3 stores would you choose to max out your credit card? Tuchuzy in {Sydney’s} Bondi as they have such a great collection of all my favourite designers. Sass & bide as I can always find a beautiful statement piece there. And Acne for casual wear.

 What’s on your wish list right now? A Givenchy leather jacket.

What are your tips for SOMEWEAR readers on how to keep your wardrobe fresh and amazing?  Whenever I buy something new I go through my wardrobe and take out something older to give to charity. This keeps my wardrobe pretty current.

Your top 3 beauty products? Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant, Aesop hand cream and Moroccan Oil.

What polish is on your nails right now? OPI’s Mimosas for Mr & Mrs.

NEWS FLASH: The Man Repeller x Fine Collection

Fine-Collection-index-ss2014Screen Shot 2014-02-19 at 2.54.36 pmScreen Shot 2014-02-19 at 2.54.54 pm

_If ever there was a reason for winter to come early it’s the new collaboration between The Man Repeller aka Leandra Medine and French brand, Fine Collection. And as expected, the collab is all kinds of deliciousness. Think super wearable and versatile cashmere pieces that you’ll want to have surgically attached to you come winter. The campaign was shot in (where else?) Paris and features the adorable Medine rocking laidback chic and generally giving us a major case of outfit envy. Run, don’t walk here.

NEWS FLASH: Zooey Deschanel’s collection for Tommy Hilfiger

Zooey Deschanel can act, sing and does that whole manic-pixie-dream-girl thing quite well but she’s also been hiding some major design skills. The adorable Deschanel has designed a capsule collection for Tommy Hilfiger and we have to say it’s a smorgasbord of 60s loveliness. The actress took inspiration from 60s icons Twiggy and Jean Shrimpton with her capsule collection featuring mini dresses in gorgeous prints mixed with Hilfiger’s all American red, white and blue colour palette. The range of 16 dresses will be available from Macy’s on April 14 and on tommy.com on April 21.

TRENDING: All the latest news from the world of fashion & beauty

How Kate Moss celebrated her 40th. It’s as utterly fabulous as you’d expect.
 SJP has launched her own shoe line. It’s sometimes freaky how much she’s like Carrie Bradshaw.
Sneak a peek inside the Girls wardrobe department. And yep, Hannah Horvath’s yellow mesh tank is most definitely front and centre.
‣ American Apparel really must try and not be so boring and predictable. This time round they’ve caused quite the stir by using mannequins with visible pubic hair.
‣ H&M most definitely know a bankable item of clothing when they see it, so expect big things from the finalists of their 2014 Design Awards.

FASHION FOCUS: Margot Robbie

01_

From Neighbours to pashing Leonardo DiCaprio in a Martin Scorsese film – some would say that Margot Robbie’s well and truly made it.  And we have to agree. Margot’s having a major moment with the release of The Wolf of Wall Street in which she plays Leo’s wife, Naomi LaPaglia. Yes, yes, she’s sans clothing quite a lot in the film but the thing that’s got us really talking is the fact Robbie’s wardrobe is just impeccable. The girl can dress. From the white Gucci gown she wore to the Golden Globes to the stunning lace Georges Hobeika gown she wore to the Vanity Fair Oscars party (with bestie Teresa Palmer in tow) she’s definitely one to add to your red carpet stalking list. Ramsay Street is now but a distant memory…
