Giuliana Rancic: Sydney Cocktail Party, Westfield Bondi Junction - PHOTOS

Fashion and celebrity commentator Giuliana Rancic is wrapping up her successful, press-filled first Australian as the Autumn/Winter 'Style Ambassador' for Westfield.

Sydney’s social circuit joined Giuliana (married to the first US 'The Apprentice' winner and now successful businessman Bill Rancic - see the Josie's Juice interview here) at Westfield Bondi Junction last night to welcome international fashionista Giuliana to Australia as the newly appointed Westfield A/W Style Ambassador.

You guys, this woman is seriously stylish. She is even more stunning, lithe, tall and gorgeous in person. Westfield should be seriously proud of their choice: Giuliana spoke eloquently and passionately about her genuine love for Australian fashion. She rattled off names of brands she loves and she knows them well, having sported Australian designers Alex Perry and Paolo Sebastian gowns on the red carpet just this year, while hosting awards shows. This woman lives and breathes fashion, and knows style when she sees it. During her speech - where she genuinely lauded Aussie designers she adored - she looked divine in a Gucci long gown (from Westfield, obv).

The luxurious red carpet cocktail affair attracted Sydney’s own style connoisseurs: Nicky and Simone Zimmermann, Leona Edmiston, Genevieve Smart, Kelly Smythe and Magdalena Roze, who I chatted with on the red carpet and who looked seriously stunning. Yes, she reported on the sudden onslaught of rain that night, but she still looked amazing in a not-at-all warm floor length skirt and midriff-skimming top. Terry Biviano was also another attendee who rocked a jumpsuit like nobody's business. That is one seriously sexy mamma, and we caught up over champers and canapés and talked all things babies.

Model and presenter Laura Dundovic did a stellar job in leading proceedings and welcomed Giuliana, and asked all the right questions, including: is George Clooney really that hot in real life? Giuliana said a resounding yes, and proceeded to tell Laura she was just his type, and she would hook them up on a date. She has his number in her phone, after all. Laura didn't say no… who would? Laura looked too hot for words in her short shorts, BTW.

When the speeches wrapped up, guests sipped on Mumm and enjoyed music mixed by cutting-edge DJ, BAD Ezzy. I love that the social media hashtag for the evening was Giuliana's fave line and very first question on a red carpet: #whoareyouwearing - I Insty-ed a few shots from the evening here.

Westfield Marketing General Manager Sarah Cleggett said “We were delighted to see so many impeccably dressed guests welcome our guest of honour Giuliana last night. The event really was testament to what makes Australian style so unique.”

The A/W fashion collections are now available at Westfield retail stores. Customers can also visit www.westfield.com.au for further fashion and news updates.
