Last night Marie Claire held its 2014 Success Summit at Sydney’s The Art Gallery of New South Wales, with five inspiring women, including the magazine’s editor, Jackie Frank, personal trainer Michelle Bridges, Australia’s Sex Discrimination Commissioner Elizabeth Broderick, Red Balloon’s Naomi Simpson, and fashion designer Camilla Franks, stepping out to share words of wisdom with the sold-out event’s guests.
Guests were treated to a light supper, drinks, gift bags, success stories from the five business women, and, of course, a visual feast in the way of Michelle and Camilla’s stylish outfits.
Camilla donned her signature style, as expected, in a loose kaftan-style maxi complete with bohemian-luxe jewels, while Michelle stood out despite the lack of colour in her getup. She gave the typical LBD a sexy twist with a midriff cut-out, added sophistication in the form of pointed-toe pumps, and kept the look feminine with side-parted waves and a soft-pink lip.
Even though Camilla’s outfit was bright and colourful, it’s nothing we haven’t seen before from the outstanding designer. On the other hand, Michelle reminded us that less can definitely be more with a classic black-on-black look.
