STYLE QUEEN ZILLA
AGE ~ 51
Over the years my style has changed from playing it safe and being afraid of what people might think of my choices in clothing to wearing whatever I believe fits me well and makes me feel good about myself. Zilla
Today’s She’s Got Style global fashionista is the stunning Zilla McCasker who lives in Australia with her husband. This petite style-inspiring beauty, who stands a booming 5 feet tall on a good day, was born and raised in Durbin South Africa.
Zilla, who is a personal stylist, likes to take fashion risks and has a passion for feminine dresses and heels. She keeps the accessories and her makeup to a minimum, and if we looked like Zilla, we’d let our beauty do the talking too!
FCO50: How would you define your style?
ZILLA: I love my look to be unpredictable and I love mixing things up by varying my looks. My personality is infused into my outfits by the addition of pieces that are cute and fun and wearing pretty shoes as well as wearing turbans or head wraps.
I love to be polished, sophisticated and glamorous but unfortunately I have to be realistic and dress in a way that suits my lifestyle.
FCO50: You wear a lot of lovely dresses, do you ever wear denim?
ZILLA: I’m not a big fan of jeans but when I do wear them, it’s got to be with heels.
FCO50: You are a Personal Stylist, in addition to being petite. Do you have any styling tips for the petite woman?
ZILLA: Over the years I have always found it difficult to find clothes that fit my petite figure. I shop at a variety of stores and I believe that it is important to invest in quality clothing as they will stand the test of time.
FCO50: Do you usually accessorize your outfits with jewerly?
ZILLA: I wear minimal jewelry, usually my Michael Kors watch or my Guess watch, one in gold and one in silver and occasionally some costume jewelry.
FCO50: Has your style changed now that you are over 40?
ZILLA: My outlook on life keeps me young because I don’t believe I should dress in a certain way because of my age, I’m open to trying out different styles and shopping where the young girls shop.
Over the years my style has changed from playing it safe and being afraid of what people might think of my choices in clothing to wearing whatever I believe fits me well and makes me feel good about myself.
FCO50: Do you have a favorite beauty product?
ZILLA: The beauty products that I cannot live without, is Olay Complete Defence Moisturizing Lotion for the day and Olay Night Cream for Mature Skin at night. Moisturizer and sunscreen are a must.
You will rarely find me wearing lots of makeup, all I wear is eyeliner, mascara and lipstick.
ZILLA MCCASKER IN HER OWN WORDS
I’m a 51 year old South African born mum of two beautiful adult children and wife to a wonderful husband and recently became a grandma to my precious granddaughter who was born on 14th November 2016.
Born and raised in Durban, South Africa, I immigrated to Perth, Western Australia in 1998 with now my ex- husband, nine year old daughter and 19 month old son.
I’ve always been a lover of fashion and over the years I’ve played hairdresser and stylist to my family and friends. If I could be dressed up everyday I would!
My defining moment was obtaining my accreditation as a Personal Stylist which gave me the confidence and credibility to work in a field that I feel passionate about.
My love of fashion, travel and having a husband who is funny and likes to make me laugh all help keep me young.
