It’s hard to believe Deborah Hutton is ringing in her milestone 60th birthday this year, as it seems like only yesterday that she was gracing the cover of Cosmopolitan and Cleo magazines. And while the big day may be several months away yet, it’s a fact that not even she can grapple with.
“I can’t believe I’m actually here,” Deb tells Woman’s Day.
“When I turned 50 I was like, ‘Wow, I can’t believe I’m 50’ but now I’m 60... I just find it amusing.
“It’s actually a beauty to celebrate and every line on my face has been well worth it – they’re all memories from my wonderful life.”
Boasting a career that spans four decades, Deb has mastered nearly every facet of the media industry. Starting out as a model, she landed her first magazine cover when she was just 16.
Then it was onto hosting a plethora of high-rated TV shows such as Looking Good, Location, Location and Amazing Homes. Next came her career in publishing, with Deb becoming an editor at The Australian Women’s Weekly.
Now she’s releasing her own homewares line, Home with Deborah Hutton with MyHouse, and Deb acknowledges she’s struck the career jackpot time and again.
“I’ve also been the face of Qantas and Holden, did a line with Kmart, released a line of eyewear... so you’ve got cars, planes, only thing I was missing from was meat pies,” she laughs.
“It’s been fantastic really – such an incredible life.”
