After cementing herself as a permanent fixture in the fashion industry some years ago, Australian model and actor Maddison Brown moved to Los Angeles to make her mark in the film and television industry. 

Now, the prominent 22-year old, who has made star turns in Strangerland opposite Nicole Kidman, and The CW hit series Dynasty, is returning home to accompany Vogue Australia editor-in chief Edwina McCann as a special guest at the 10th anniversary of Vogue American Express Fashion’s Night Out in Sydney on September 5. 

“I just think it’s such a great event,” said Brown, who has joined the Vogue team at VAEFNO in the past. “I’m so excited and honoured to be coming home for it and the opportunity to come home and be part of an event that I’ve been a fan of years. It’s really, really exciting.”

The model and actor, who has been working with Vogue since she was just 16 years old, confessed that she plans on making the most of the exclusive offers available to shop on the day, but that the pieces that she plans on purchasing must meet her criteria first. 

“I’ve got my eye on a few different pieces,” she shared. Adding: “The way I approach shopping, first and foremost, is sustainability, and secondly, I look for investment pieces. I don’t want to be turning over my wardrobe every three months.”

Touching on her sense of style, Brown told Vogue that while she has been labeled as a “fashionable tomboy” in the past, her “style is pretty simple day-to-day.”

“I love clothes that are comfortable and feel good and also look good,” said the model. “I’ll have a simple outfit but I’ll dress it up with a necklace or some earrings, or a nice handbag or shoes. I love accessories,” she added.

At just 22, Brown has hit a number of milestones that are nothing short of noteworthy. Citing her first fashion show, work with Vogue, and her relationship with Miu Miu as a few of the highlights of her career thus far, the star added that her starring role in Strangerland was one that certainly put her on the map. 

“It was so lovely, such a positive, wonderful experience,” Brown told Vogue of her time on the set of the film, which just so happened to be her very first. “[Nicole Kidman] is incredibly talented and she’s a wonderful person,” she added. “She’s very, very warm.”

While Brown shares that it took her some time to learn how to deal with the rejection that comes with auditioning for new roles, she maintains that although she’s “definitely more focused on film” than fashion for the time being, she doesn’t plan on choosing between the two.

“I feel very passionate about fashion still and it’s something that I want to be a part of,” she shared.
