Kirkpatrick and fellow housewife Michelle Blanchard recently took part in a photoshoot for fashion bible Viva magazine where their usual high end Gucci looks were pared down. Kirkpatrick can do both with ease.

4. Danielle Cormack
Most people are used to seeing Danielle Cormack in her prison jumpsuit, but away from the scene she loves nothing more than dressing up. Cormack has recently taken part in photoshoots for Vogue Australia, Stellar Mag and graced the cover of the Star Observer magazine.

Prebble made our most fashionable list, last year and has not put a foot wrong since.

With her Hitchcock blonde looks, Chrystal Chenery is no slouch when it comes to fashion. Chenery loves designer clothes and always manages to look polished with classic style. Her favourite piece is a camel coat which she manages to make look a little different with each outfit she wears it over. Although she is often in yoga outfits, when the occasion calls Chenery pulls out all the stops and looks a million dollars.
Musician Ladyhawke stays true to her rock n’ roll life and is known for her quirky fashion sense. Although she keeps her look casual, she manages to pull off a Mickey Mouse tshirt and still look uber cool. Recently she has been wearing the on-trend satin bomber jacket at her concerts. She has also been rocking the iconic Adidas Gazelles.
9. Kelly Coe
Kelly Coe is the fashion designer behind the Augustine brand. Always an advocate for her clothing, Coe consistently looks fabulous in her own designs, even whilst she was pregnant she never let up on looking good. Coe's style is casually glamorous and she is a big fan of bright colours and funky patterns. But when the occasions calls for it, Coe can definitely bring on the designer look.
10. Jenny Suo
Newshub Late presenter Jenny Suo is always immaculate when presenting the late news. Although she’s a lover of the great outdoors, Suo can definitely hold her own in the fashion stakes.
