We have some pretty hard girl crushes. These are the types of ladies that stamp their style on the world. They are the type of people that will always be remembered and little girls grow up wanting to be. They are women of substance. Women that make the world a better place.
Happy Girl Crush Tuesday everybody.
Today’s girl crush is on the fantastically talented and very successful Jackie Frank.
Jackie is the editor and publisher of Marie Claire Australia. She is powerfully smart and epitomises girl power at its absolute finest.
Professionally, together with her fantastic team she has bought Marie Claire Australia to the forefront of any fashion lovers bookshelf and is officially the go-to for any fashion conscious Australian woman. Quite remarkably, Marie Claire Australia in combination with its sister editions are read by thirteen million women in 26 countries each month. As further evidence of the success achieved while being captained by Jackie, Marie Claire Australia was recognised as Magazine of the year in 2001 at the Magazine Publishers of Australia Awards.
What makes Jackie even more remarkable is that she is not afraid to voice her opinion when something just doesn’t seem right. She stands up for women’s rights and is publically known for her stand against models who are unhealthily thin. She is also completely passionate about equal marriage in Australia, and across the world.
As if editing Australia’s most beautiful magazine is not enough, Jackie is also successful personally as a mother to two beautiful children.
Thank you Ms Frank for giving all little girls someone to admire. You show that hard work, perseverance and self-belief are the cornerstone for a successful career. Girls really can have it all.
P.S You know when people ask you who your dream dinner party guest would be? The remarkable Jackie Frank is my choice.
