“I’m excited to take on this new role and will work to deliver a fresh creativity to the covers of Vogue Australia and across every page of the magazine, championing and nurturing inspiring design and exceptional fashion in Australia and internationally; celebrating interesting people and all their achievements, and ideas, with compassion, intelligence and humour; and naturally exploring gender and always championing diversity and originality.”
During her time at Vogue Australia, Centenera has styled some of the world’s most notable names, from Cate Blanchett, to Gisele Bünchden, Naomi Campbell and Kim Kardashian. In her new role as Vogue Australia’s editor-in-chief, Centenera brings her depth of knowledge and experience in the fashion industry.
While she will continue to spend time in London and the US, Centenera also looks forward to immersing herself in the vibrancy and creative spirit of the Australian fashion industry. “I love being in close proximity to the extraordinary photographers, and people that we work with on the pages—anywhere in the world,” she says. “Wherever I go, people love Australia and I’m proud to be an Australian abroad.”
“Vogue Australia must always be the authority on fashion and a reflection of the times.”
“After more than 10 years editing the magazine, I am thrilled Christine has agreed to expand her role and look forward to seeing the next chapter of Vogue Australia magazine’s rich history unfold,” McCann says.
“We have worked together for more than 13 years and Christine is my natural choice to succeed me in this role. While I will continue as the magazine’s editorial director and publisher, this change will allow me to focus on our expanding and successful Prestige publishing business at News Corp Australia, which also includes Conde Nast titles GQ Australia and Vogue Living.”
