Jetsetting off to enviable destinations around the world is both a personal passion and professional responsibility for fashion and lifestyle influencer Nicole Warne. The Australian-born social media phenomenon follows an unrelenting schedule that sees her globe-trotting for red carpet events, international fashion month and partnerships with brands.
Case in point: her newly appointed role with Piaget which took Nicole to Monaco, France where she wore pieces from the high-end jewellery brand's new Sunlight collection.
“I’m thrilled to be joining Piaget, a respected and renowned leader in the luxury space, as Friend of the Brand," she said.
"Piaget's core values in design, craftsmanship, and art resonate with me and my style. I am excited to embark on the next chapter; creating and sharing alongside a brand I love.”
Who, better then, to turn to for the ultimate travel-inspiration? Here, seven times Nicole inspired our wanderlust with her awe-inspiring posts (photographed by her husband, photographer Luke Shadbolt).
A few things come to mind when most people think of Monaco, the city-state on the French Riviera. Monaco is synonymous with fashion, yachts, and of course, Grace Kelly.
Draped in Piaget diamonds, Nicole captioned this photo: "There’s a heatwave in Europe and I’m dripping in diamonds."
Never one to rest on her laurels, she also manages to fit in some exploration-oriented trips. During a recent trip to the Greek Islands, Nicole took a moment to take in the beauty of the fifth largest island in the Mediterranean Sea.
"Exploring the quiet Southern coastline of Crete. Also took off my hat and exposed some skin from underneath the layers of clothes I wear to hide from the sun just for this photo," she wrote.
"When I travel I rarely buy anything for myself. I’ve always felt like I didn’t need much to be happy and despise clutter, which results in a pretty minimal space with a few hero pieces scattered around our house (and lots of photos from my travels instead to preserve the memories in time)," Nicole shared alongside this photo from Marrakesh, Morroco.
"I was so overwhelmed on this trip; there were so many options, but I was on a mission to find some rugs for my parents. I came home empty handed for myself but I happily returned with a suitcase full of ceramics and two authentic rugs for them. Nothing brings me more joy than bringing keepsakes back for my loved ones. I just hope my parents get to experience it for themselves one day."
New York, United States
2018 saw Nicole move from her native Central Coast, NSW, to the Big Apple: "Back in my new city and feeling happy."
Located in the heart of the Italian fashion capital, the ornate details of the Piazza del Duomo create a striking contrast to the modern lines of Nicole's suit.
Wanaka, New Zealand
After 11-years together, Nicole and Luke tied the knot with an intimate ceremony in picturesque New Zealand. "Married surrounded by mountains, lakes, the wilderness, and the people we cherish the most. The depth of love we feel from everyone has been overwhelming, thank you for all of your well wishes," Nicole shared.
"This was the day we got engaged (and one of the brief moments I had red hair)." Nicole continues: "[Luke] proposed on a tiny blue boat as cherry blossoms were softly falling around us from the Sakura trees lining this beautiful lake."
"The iPhone quality is terrible but this video was taken moments after Luke proposed to help remind me of one of the most cherished moments of my life."
