Stylist kicking red carpet goals

Mount Gambier fashion stylist Kellie Nobes will take off to the 2022 AFL Brownlow Medal in September to get four women red-carpet ready.

Ms Nobes, owner of Mount Gambier-based business Kellie Nobes Styling, will be accompanied to the major event by fellow locals photographer Amy Agnew and makeup artist Katie Fox.

“I am super excited, it will be really amazing,” she said.

“Amy is coming over to do a bit of photography on the day, secure some footage and behind the scenes and Katie’s coming over to do hair and makeup for a few of the clients.

“It will be nice this year to have some locals with me.”

“Usually I’m working with hairdressers and makeup artists who are obviously always amazing but I think it’s so great that I’ll be able to take a few friends with me along the way too,” she said.

Ms Nobes said she was very fortunate to work with multiple designers this year and said the Brownlow was an opportunity to showcase her creativity on a larger scale.

“It’s been really great because I have actually had a hand in some of the design elements of the gowns,” she said.

“They’re actually putting forward some designs that I had in mind that I thought would be useful for each of the girls after meeting with them and working on mood boards.

“Every girl has a very individual look suited to their tastes and what I think would work well for them and my own style visions that I was hoping to see on the red carpet this year.

“I’m very excited to see it all coming together, it’s been lots of hard work but this year I have actually been able to have total control over the look as a whole rather than just certain elements.

“I’m very fortunate to be working with designers who respect my work and my vision.”

Ms Nobes has previously styled five women for the 2018 Brownlow and two women for the 2019 Brownlow.

She said the event was also an opportunity to shine a spotlight on some local businesses including accessories, Ms Fox’s hair and makeup services and Ms Agnew’s photography services.

“Just showing people that we’re not just restricted to our postcode, we can actually achieve some of these things outside of Mount Gambier,” she said.

“It’s just about putting yourself out there and being open to some of these opportunities and realising that it involves a lot more work, but if you’re willing and able then we can definitely achieve things from where we are down here.”

Ms Nobes thanked the local community for their help and support, which she said did not go unnoticed and for which she was very grateful and appreciative.
