"She was a creative genius, a wonderful generous elegant woman & very much a part of many of my favourite memories.
She will be dearly missed, but never forgotten. And will live on forever in my heart, & my wardrobe. Vale Carla."
Sam has stepped out in Carla Zampatti numerous times however there is one special piece by the late designer in her wardrobe: the white, high-neck wedding dress she wore to marry her husband, Richard Lavender on New Year's Eve last year.
The newlywed made sure to include a snap of her happy day in a series of photos she posted in Zampatti's honour. Sam also shared a pic of herself at the 2019 Logie Awards wearing a red-hot, one-shouldered Carla Zampatti gown.

Death of a 'fashion icon'
Italian-born Zampatti, who launched her eponymous label in 1965, attended the opening night of the opera La Traviata at Mrs Macquarie’s Point on March 26, where she posed on the red carpet.
Later that evening, it's believed Zampatti fell and, per the Daily Telegraph, was taken by ambulance to St Vincent’s Hospital after "losing consciousness".
The publication reports that the designer was "in a coma" and "never woke up".
Her bold and distinctive label, Carla Zampatti, is ubiquitous with Australian fashion and has been worn by countless high-profile women including Princess Mary of Denmark, former Prime Minister Julia Gillard and actors Nicole Kidman and Cate Blanchett.
Zampatti was remembered as 'Australia’s most successful and enduring fashion designer' in a statement posted to her fashion label's Instagram account on Saturday afternoon.
