The gorgeous Ann-Margrete Smee is a woman with an eye for true classic style and clean lines .... then she gives them a very cheeky twist. Swedish born she has lived in Australia for many years.

WHO ARE THE DESIGNERS YOU LIKE
I don’t adhere to fashion norms, I’m a bit of a tomboy. I do like the clean lines of Ralph Lauren, but I don’t adhere to trends. I find it easier to look at designer vintage, not faddish but simple lines. Confidence is knowing what suits you and what you’re comfortable wearing .
WHAT SORT OF CLOTHES APPEAL TO YOU?
Any clothes that are well cut. Doesn’t need to be a label. Doesn’t need to be new *nice lines *nice quality fabrics, is it lined, well made.
DO YOU HAVE ANY STYLE ICONS ?
No real Icon, but I like Cate Blanchett, Julia Roberts, Queen Silvia of Sweden, Iris Apfel, Catherine Deneuve Katherine Hepburn, Ines de la Fressange – old fashion elegance – understated elegance
HOW DO YOU FEEL ABOUT GETTING OLDER
There is a certain freedom to getting older, one has a licence to behave, perhaps a bit differently, being a foreigner can give you some leeway.
DO MAGAZINES OR AD CAMPAIGNS TALK TO YOUR GENERATION?
I like looking at trends, but you don’t go out to buy from fashion magazines.
WHERE ARE THE CLOTHES IN THE SHOTS FROM?
Yellow jacket from a better vintage store with a worthy cause in Boston. Heavy big skirt from 1980’s Paris, new then. Black fur edged boots from local auction house a few years ago. The lace blouse from a Swedish vintage store in Stockholm. My fur collar shirt jacket? That was from a Sydney vintage store a few years ago.
WHAT ARE THE THINGS THAT ARE MOST IMPORTANT IN YOUR LIFE AS YOU GET OLDER?
Children, Grandchildren, health, roaming, your business, keeping active with an adventure everyday.
