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.”

  1. She is a lovely, elegant lady…with her own unique style. Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but I prefer to be me. She once presented me with a writing prize, I admired her then, I still do. But I still, prefer to be me!

  2. I have always admired Ita Buttrose, she is a classy lady. However wouldn’t it be nice to be able to afford $499 for a Carla Zampatti jacket!!!!!
