New Zealand-born Hilary Alexander, the “retired” fashion director of Britain’s Daily Telegraph, does more than make fashion statements.
It’s frustrating, really. A phone call can’t possibly do Hilary Alexander justice. She hasn’t put in 26 years as the influential fashion editor, then fashion director, of Britain’s Daily Telegraph without evolving an arresting visual presence. The photos reveal a woman who, at an age when some might be throttling it back a little, is unafraid to rock leather pants and a Masai necklace or show a bit of leg. She’s so tiny she needs a fascinator to reach 5’3’’, but snapped alongside Kate Moss or Vivienne Westwood, it’s often Alexander who draws your startled eye.
