Oaks Day 2016 Street Style Highlights

Day three of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival brings us to Crown Oaks Day (aka Ladies Day). Oaks did not disappoint. The Ladies came in all the feminine glamour that my lens could wish for. Gowns, adoring floral, lace and bright colours, complimented with delicate bows, boaters and head bands, completed impeccable outfits. The seasons finest designer bags paired with killer Valentino rockstuds stole the show, and possibly the flesh of the brave ladies who wore them for hours (the heels that is). And what would ladies day be without the dapper gents who put in as much effort to get that perfect head-to-toe look.

I enjoyed Oaks very much this year. I even took a moment to have a chat to the lovely Bec Hewitt. Bec is a real sweetheart and down-to-earth, which of-course the media doesn’t like to portray. Don’t believe everything you read on the news stand!

Fashion on the fields is quite a step away from my traditional street style photography, but nevertheless I was still in my element, spotting and snapping the most fashionable Race goers having a good time.

Well it’s a wrap from me, that was my final day at the races, and I sincerely want to thank everybody for their support – PR agencies, my photographer buddies for hanging out with me, and all the fantastic people I got to meet and snap along the way. Oh, and thanks for the love regarding my coverage for What Would Karl Do too, I’m glad you are enjoying my take on fashion on the fields.

Lastly but not the least I want to thank the following people:

  • Jess Dempsey of What Would Karl Do for selecting me to work with her and for being a pleasure to shoot
  • Bared Footwear for saving my feet with stunning and comfy heels
  • Ezaraj for my beautiful and sparkly head piece
  • Lexus and Lavazza for welcoming me into your marquees with exquisite hospitality.

So here are the shots taken in and out of marquees and my “Birdcage street-style”.

Always Karen xx

Melbourne Cup 2016 Street Style Highlights

As we all anticipated, the weather on Melbourne Cup Day was mixed with sun rays and rain, but this did not dampen the mood of any Race goers. This time, I visited a few Marquees and roamed around the Birdcage capturing the fashion as the day went by, and I couldn’t be more happier to snap up some pretty amazing fashion.

Once again, Gucci as worn by Kate Waterhouse, and Nadia Fairfax; and Dolce & Gabana as worn by Lindy Klim and Viktoria Novak dominated the streets. Jennifer Hawkins made a red hot appearance in Misha Collection.

Enjoy the street style highlights and I’ll see you tomorrow for Oak’s Day!

Derby Day 2016 Lexus Marquee Highlights

As soon as I walked through the doors of the Lexus marquee, I felt right at home. It was really nice to catch up with all the friendly familiar faces that I have befriended over the past two years. The Lexus marquee had a total transformation: a new spacious layout with more windows, and it was three storey high to fit a total of 350 people (additional 60 people from previous years). The marquee was fitted out with recyclable cardboard tubes, flower decorations, The Daily Edited booth where you can get your name embossed onto the Lexus wallet, Attica restaurant & bar, Franklin restaurant and of-course, the new Lexus IS 350 right at the centre.

International model, Jess Gomes is this year’s Lexus Ambassador wearing Carla Zampatti black dress, and a delicate black netting headpiece by Hatmaker. Other celebrities who also made appearances were Margaret Zhang, Kate Waterhouse, Bambi Blyth, Emma Freedman to name a few.

I also want to thank Bared Footwear for my beautiful and super comfortable high heels, and to my incredibly talented friend and milliner, Ezara Jennings for my sparkly lace headpieces.

Hope you enjoy my Derby Day coverage, and I shall see you at the Melbourne Cup Carnival xxx

My Travel Feature with St Giles Hotel

Remember back in July this year, I took Dee, my best friend for a trip of a lifetime to Kuala Lumpur to work on a #StGiles360 #BeCentral campaign? Well exciting news, the travel campaign is finally live!

Watching it has brought back so many happy memories and I want to go back again!

Thank you once again to the creative team at Piranha and St Giles Hotels to be a part of this incredible opportunity xxx

Here is the official anthem #StGiles360 #BeCentral Campaign:

The one for Kuala Lumpur:

Wait…. if that’s not enough, here’s more of my KL travels here:

If you haven’t been to KL, I suggest you do now and the last time I’ve checked the flights are now on sale at Air Asia, and of course book your stay at The Gardens – A St Giles Signature Hotel & Residences at Kuala Lumpur.
