Having styled so many big-name celebs, from Megan Gale to Anna Heinrich and Bec Judd, Lana reveals there’s one golden rule to making her star clients look incredible every time.
“I always make each person I’m working with feel like number one,”She says. “My focus is one million per cent on that client, making sure that they’re feeling themselves in all the best ways.”
It’s that approach to fashion that helps Lana create some of her favourite red carpet moments, like when Rebecca Harding attended the 2017 TV WEEK Logie Awards.
She arrived that night as Andy Lee’s plus one and became a darling of the Australian fashion scene overnight thanks to the look Lana helped create – and her custom Cappellazzo gown.
Lana paired Rebecca, as she did with many of her top clients, with the designer that best suited her style and vision.
Lana adds that she’d hang up her boots – or should we say sparkling heels – before forcing a client to wear something they didn’t love, just because it was on her agenda.
“I really do believe that when you are feeling yourself, you project that everywhere,”She smiles fondly.
“You have that moment in the mirror where you’re like, ‘geez, I look good’. When I get that in a fitting, I know that we’re good. And I’ve been lucky with all three of them [Abbey, Simone and Pia] thus far I’ve had that.”

With more than a decade experience styling glamorous womenFor the TV WEEKLogie Awards, and her role as The Star’s Fashion Ambassador for the event. Lana also has a wealth of knowledge when it comes to red carpet do’s and don’ts.
Lana steers clear of certain fabrics that crease easily or don’t photograph well, which can lead to a fashion faux pas – or “mishap”It is, as she diplomatically refers to it.
Her golden rule is to collaborate with her client and work to enhance the things they like about their bodies and draw attention away from the things they don’t.
She only works with hair and makeup artists that will listen to her clients. She makes sure that every detail enhances the overall look, even jewellery and accessories.
“There’s nothing worse when you see a beautiful gown with a big chunky bag,”She laughs. “Or when someone has maybe tried to make a statement that’s not right for the event.”

Just like you wouldn’t wear a sundress to a black tie wedding, it’s probably not a great idea for celebrities to ignore red carpet dress codes just to make a statement.
And she doesn’t just focus on her A-list clients; Lana has plenty of fashion advice for everyday Aussie women who are rediscovering their style after the pandemic.
“It’s about looking for people that you feel you relate to… look at how they’re dressing themselves, look for the body types that you’re like,”She says that adding style is all about feeling good.
Lana encourages women also to follow stylists and other influential women whose clothes can they visualize themselves in, and get tips from the many fashion specialists sharing them on social networks.
“You don’t have to pay for all this advice either, it’s out there. People like me, I’m sharing different things all the time… it’s just about finding those things that feel organic and authentic to you.”
