How many red carpet events have you attended since having a baby?

I’ve had to prioritise since having Wylder. I’m still breastfeeding, so it takes a little planning before any event. A highlight was The Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards awards in December last year, three months after she was born. My incredibly hard working and inspiring sister (who also had her first baby two months ahead of me) was nominated (Jodi Boylan – Producer of River Cottage Fox Network). It’s also an evening supporting my industry and seeing my friends, so it was a lot of fun. My feet were not quite ‘heel fit’, but I pushed on like any female trooper.

What's your usual 'red carpet ready' schedule?

I’m not going to lie, I put the champagne and Pellegrino in the fridge first. I’m a huge fan of both. From this point on, it’s a juggle. I never usually feel like a large lunch, so I use it as an excuse to snack on cheese and crackers and nuts and pastries. The hair and makeup team arrive just after lunch and they start while I feed Wylder and or pump. In the afternoon, often friends arrive so we can have a drink and all share cars together.

Where do we get your inspiration for the final look?

It’s always a very instinctive process for me and I often base it around one element like a colour or a beautiful designer outfit. It’s a creative process.

What's your skin care regime and a few favourite makeup products can't live without?

SK-II Facial Treatment Mask always preps my skin perfectly, Giorgio Armani Smooth Silk Eye Pencil and I’ve been using Wylder’s Vanessa Megan Bubba Bath & Massage Oil on my legs and arms. For hair, always Oribe. I have honestly tried every product in the range and it’s the absolute best. I’m obsessed and can’t live without all their hair products.
