Cameron Robbie is about to become Australia's most stylish man

Cameron Robbie is excited.

The 23 year-old MTV presenter and actor will make his catwalk debut for David Jones when it launches its autumn/winter collections in Tasmania's Mona Gallery on Tuesday as part of its Art of Living campaign.

For Robbie, who says the Mona Gallery is one of his favourite places in the world, the chance to work with the brand is an "honour."

Famous faces

Robbie will replace model Jordan Barrett and will walk alongside models Victoria Lee and Jessica Gomes. The runway show is part of a two-day "immersive" experience to showcase David Jones' wares as a true department store.

When it comes to getting dressed Robbie says he prefers a smart silhouette that allows for a little sartorial self-expression and rule-breaking.

"I love people who express themselves [with their clothes]. One of the trends this season from David Jones is self-expression," he says, adding that he's drawn to graphic prints and colour.

"I like a smart look but with a bit of edge and personality … mixing up formal wear and relaxing in areas. It's a modern way," he says.

A man of style

Robbie says his style changes depending on which city he's in, but when home in Sydney he prefers the laid-back aesthetic of brands like Jac & Jack and bassike.

His style icon?


Fashion designer and film director Tom Ford, because he is a man of both style and substance.

Robbie, who describes himself as a "bit of a joker" on his charmingly jaunty and slightly chaotic Instagram feed (missed flights are a feature),  social media is a reminder to not take yourself too seriously.

"I think we've all been in those situations and if we can poke fun at them instead of thinking 'oh this is annoying,' we realise it's not the biggest problem in the world," he says, adding that for him social media is a bit of fun and that hopefully it just makes people happy.

Featuring on Robbie's Instagram of course is his very famous sister, Margot. She of Oscar nominations, blockbuster films and Chanel ambassadorships.

Thicker than water

So does having an extremely famous sister change the dynamic between big sister and little brother?

"My family is very grounded and my sister is no different, she's a wonderful person and has always been the same: generous and grounded," he says.

Robbie credits his mum, "a beautiful soul" with instilling the values of "being kind and honourable with your words," into himself and his siblings.

Post the David Jones show Robbie, who says he's drawn to offbeat films with a quirky sense of humour, has an "exciting" first half of the year in store with a few projects on the go and plans to travel.

Ultimately he wants to find stories worth telling.

And while he doesn't have a set-in-stone end game in mind, he knows one thing to be true, "film is where my heart lies," he says.
