Iconic Australian Ita Buttrose’s name is synonymous with style. Always impeccably well-groomed, her classic style is enduring, setting the standard for many women to follow.
As well as her sense of style, Ita is to be admired for her many achievements: fashion journalist, magazine editor, media personality, author (did you have a copy of Ita’s etiquette guide?), mother and grandmother to name a few. Ita was the Founding Editor of Cleo Magazine in 1972 and the former editor of The Australian Women’s Weekly. In 2013, Ita was named Australian of the year. Ita is currently one of the hosts of Studio 10 on the Ten Network.

On her sense of style, Ita has said “I learnt it from my father. He used to drill it in that you always have to look as good as you possibly could. Especially as a journalist because you never know when a job is going to come up, so if you look the part, you’ll get the gig.”
