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!

Alice McCall transformed the lavish award winning restaurant, Porteno in Surry Hills into a live instillation of models lounging around in chantilly lace and cute rompers. Just think 60/70s, 1999 Galliano, or Opium Den styled sets to go with each outfit. Each look had “Alice” written all over it – it was playful, sensual, and feminine. The presentation felt like a live fashion shoot but minus the luxury of time and space. Basically all the shooters were given about 5 minutes to work with the models within a confined area, whilst the stylish onlookers were right behind us catching all the action. Well you know me, I love the challenge to think quickly on my feet and make the most of any situation to produce images that I am proud to publish. ‘
So here they are and I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed creating them. Thank you Electric Collective PR for having me xxx.

I started out my day at the Target Australia Head Quarters for #petitesposse model casting for the Target Runway show. Uh huh, you heard me right. M.O.D.E.L C.A.S.T.I.N.G. I was one of the lucky 15 Australian Finalists to be chosen by Target Australia in search for the face of #petitesposse at VAMFF, and walk the Target Runway. I know, totally obscure and something I never imagined myself ever doing except for being behind the lens. Having said that, I’m very grateful for every surprise and opportunity thrown at me. I actually enjoyed the entire experience because I got to meet the other beautiful models, and of-course meeting the gorgeous and super woman Dannii Minogue (true story: the first time I met her was when I served her at the Naturopathy counter back in my Pharmacy Assisting days 10 years ago ….) which was a dream come true.
I didn’t make the cut (must be my awkward catwalking skills) and I headed straight to VAMFF to capture the street style action along with my beautiful side kick, Nicola Tauros.
My entire look is by S.Wallis’s latest AW15 collection. I’m obsessing over this tweed vest right now.
