AFW24: Jackie ‘O’ Henderson stuns at Carla Zampatti’s return to runway

Jackie ‘O’ Henderson has turned heads at Australian Fashion Week after stepping out with her look-a-like daughter.

The KIIS FM radio host attended the Carla Zampatti show, which was presented by Porsche, at Sydney’s Carriageworks on Monday night wearing one of the Australian brand’s latest runway designs.

Henderson, 49, opted for a strapless black mini-dress adorned with a sequin detail, as she sat front row.

Her daughter Catalina, affectionately nicknamed Kitty, looked like her mini-me as she posed beside her famous mother.

The 13-year-old looked all grown up at the star-studded event, wearing a black strapless midi dress with matching strappy stilettos.

Her long blonde hair was even styled to match Henderson’s, with both opting for soft beachy waves.

In one photo, the pair could even be seen holding hands as they posed for photographers.

Henderson, who lost 20 kilos last year after overhauling her lifestyle, wasn’t the only well-known face watching the Australian brand unveil its Resort ‘25 collection.

TV presenter Sonia Kruger was also in attendance, wearing a figure-hugging blue pant-set, with a chunky black belt.

The 58-year-old posed for a photo backstage with Sunrise presenter’s Kylie Gillies and Natalie Barr who were also wearing outfits from the Aussie brand, which is now under the leadership of new creative director Karlie Ungar.

Former foreign minister Julie Bishop, who had attended Australian Fashion Week 2024 in a black feathered mini-dress earlier in the day, switched into a floor-length red gown from the designer brand sold at David Jones.

Many on social media declared the outfit “stunning” and “elegant”, stating Bishop “rocked” the figure-hugging number.

Bishop, who is known for her chic style, wasn’t the only former politician at the Carla Zampatti runway return, with former NSW premier Gladys Berejiklian also being spotted front row.

Berejiklian, who now works in a high-ranking corporate role, wore a grey suit for the occasion.

Other famous attendees included Nicole Kidman’s niece Lucia Hawley, model Tegan Martin and racing royalty Kate Waterhouse.

There were also a string of popular influencers who had been styled by the official hair tool partner of the 2024 AFW, Shark Beauty, including MAFS’s star Lauren Dunn, who posed in a red power suit and a stylish up-do.

Dunn’s co-star Sara Mesa also had her hair styled ahead of the show by Shark using the brand’s array of hair tools, opting for a voluminous wave to sit front row.

She finished her catwalk look with a long skirt and crop top which flaunted her abs, finishing the outfit with metallic silver shoes and a matching clutch.

Shark Beauty’s hair director, Chris Hunter said professional stylists can trust the brand’s tools to withstand the high-intensity demands of fashion week.

“From touchups, to complete creative styles, the Shark FlexStyle, Shark SmoothStyle and Shark SpeedStyle, will be delivering some stellar runway hair trends you can recreate at home,” he said.
