Camilla Franks and Alex Perry inducted into Fashion Walk of Style

There are a number of things you should never say to a pregnant woman - her size, however big or small, being at the top of that list.

But those rules went out the window on Tuesday night as Sydney's fashion pack gathered at Jackie's Cafe in Paddington to induct a pregnant Camilla Franks and Alex Perry into the Australian Fashion Walk of Style.

The evening's host, millionaire property developer and founder of the Intersection Paddington, Theo Onisforou, started off proceedings by saying, "When I looked at Camilla I thought, 'Thank God this [event] wasn't in two weeks.'"

"I still have two months [to go]," Franks shouted from the middle of the crowd.

But Onisforou wasn't finished there. After he awarded Perry his plaque, he told him to move off the step they were standing to make room from Franks, explaining: "There is not enough room for three-and-a-half of us."

"Not with her [Camilla]," Perry replied, laughing.

When it was Franks' turn, Onisforou joked: "I'll give you your plaque, but I won't hand it to you."

"Why not? I am not an invalid," she replied with a laugh.

Lucky for them, Franks is as laid-back as she is fabulous, so could see the funny side, and took the opportunity to thank Onisforou for the work he does promoting the Australian fashion industry. She also thanked her kaftan-clad tribe for being "the heart and soul of the brand".

When accepting his award, Perry saluted his fashion gal pal Franks: "We are good designers and we have our own aesthetic, we love making women feel beautiful in our own different ways - she allows women to breathe, I don't so much."

Looking in Franks' direction, he added: "I love that it is you that I am here with today."

A plaque in honour of the late Jackie Milijash, the socialite and owner of the celebrity cafe Jackie's, was also unveiled on the evening.

The cafe's new owners, banker-turned-coffee-entrepreneur Jono Bowman and his wife Lucy, told the crowd: "We want to respect her legacy and to show how important she was to the intersection."

Fashionistas were spotted going between Jackie's and The Standard Bowl on Taylor Square, Darlinghurst, where another soiree was in full swing to celebrate the launch of Coach Australia's Westfield Sydney flagship store.

Guests, including international model and Executive Style's summer cover boy Jarrod Scott, partied to nostalgic tunes, played pinball and tried their luck at the pick'n'mix machines containing Coach Creature Charms.

Earlier that day, SBS stars and executives came together to reveal their line-up for 2018, including brand-new Australian dramas Dead Lucky, starring Rachel Griffiths and Ian Meadows, and psychological thriller Safe Harbour with Jacqueline McKenzie, Phoebe Tonkin, Joel Jackson and Nicole Chamoun.

Guests were treated to food inspired by multicultural Australia and a performance by Australia's 2017 Eurovision contestant, Isaiah Firebrace.

Roxy Jacenko, Guy Sebastian??? and Napoleon Perdis' model daughter Lianna led the charge at Toni&Guy's Culture Shock Fashion Show at the Westin last Sunday, with a runway of the latest styles put together by their artistic team.

As seen on Sundays in The Sun-Herald's S liftout.
