We spend so long analysing what other people wear here at GRAZIA HQ, sometimes it’s nice to turn the scrutiny back onto our fashion-obsessed selves. And what better occasion than Australian Fashion Week, where the stylish come out to play and any wild look goes?

Fashion blogger Helen Chik is no stranger to the camera. The style and travel commentator, who joins us as a market editor between overseas jants, has made a profession of being snapped putting her own spin on both luxury and high street fashion. Her signature look? “My go-to right now is statement earrings,” she told us outside the Dion Lee Resort 2018 runway show. “I don’t wear necklaces much at the moment. Big ear bling is my thing”.

GRAZIA boss Schwartz is more comfortable directing a shoot than starring in one, but was coersed into posing by show partner in crime Chik. Why this embellished Gucci bomber? “Just look at it,” he answers. “Why wouldn’t you?”
