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
