I don’t think Christine Centenera has ever made a bad fashion choice. Maybe long ago, in the midst of the 90s, before she was one of the best dress ladies in Australia she wore a bike pants or runners and jeans, but even so I can’t imagine it. Her partner is the amazing fashion designer, Josh Goot and she does work for fashion bible, Harper’s Bazaar, so her flawless style is no surprise. I’ve featured her on my blog before wearing this Balenciaga skirt, but this Josh Goot jacket (which she probably got on mates rates or something…lucky) is amazing, I love the combination of colour and texture. Enjoy this look of the day!
I apologise for being so slack recently with my blogging, I haven’t posted anything for weeks. I’ve been busy with uni, fashion week and work, I’m really annoyed I haven’t gotten around to finishing my fashion week blog which was so exciting, so many exciting moments. That post is coming soon, promise! I also had a computer problem, but have updated my laptop with a MacBook, so I should be set for blogging from now on. Another fashion moment I wanted to blog about was the massive change at Vogue Australia, with the ousting of long-time editor, Kirstie Clements, who was replaced by Edwina McCann, current editor of Harper’s Bazaar. McCann is on a career high after securing one of the biggest Australian magazine covers of the year featuring Nicole Kidman and her youngest daughter Faith. Clements was a legend of Vogue, working with the magazine for thirteen years and editing for ten, she made an enormous impact on the iconic magazine and was a woman who didn’t follow trends but had style, I saw her only a few weeks ago, sitting front row at all the big shows, looking glamorous as ever. Also at the recent shows was McCann, she must have been aware of her imminent departure from Harper’s and take-over at Vogue. Clements surely will do something else fabulous within the industry, with her experience she could go anywhere, while McCann will bring something new and fresh to the iconic magazine, coming off a very big high at rival Harper’s.

While most of the attention in New York is focused on the designs coming down the runway, some of the best fashion moments of New York Fashion Week are seen on the streets, worn by those coming and going from the shows. Winter in New York always makes for daring combinations, some are fabulous and some not so much, but generally they all have some element that is fabulous in its own right.The look of the day straight from the streets of New York is a combination of two clashing prints, somehow the two look as though they were meant to be worn together. The button up blouse with the pencil skirt create a simple silhouette, while the vibrant prints create excitement. Not everyone could pull off this much colour, but when it’s done right, it looks amazing!
Already a big deal in the Australian fashion industry, stylist Christine Centenera is making a name for herself abroad. She styled Kanye West’s recent fashion debut in Paris and on his latest visit to Australia was spotted acting as his personal shopper in Sydney, Centenera looks to be one of Australia’s latest big exports in the fashion world. Her style is very modern, at times futuristic, I have featured her before when she wore her statement flares by Celine and she favours short hemlines (perfect for her toned, tanned legs). Currently the fashion editor at Harpers Bazaar here in Australia, Centenera is sure to be headed for big things with her keen fashion eye and famous friends (namely, Mr. Kanye West). During the recent haute couture shows in Paris, Centenera recorded a photo fashion diary of what she wore, here are a few of the outfits she chose.
