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!

It was my day off today to dress up in heels and hang out with my best friend at the Lexus Marquee. As much as I tried hiding and tried not to “work” I was quite recognisable on the streets. Got to thank my hair by Clarity Beauty for that, and the beautiful crown by Demilinery I was wearing. The truth is, you know me perfectly well – I get itchy fingers and can’t help snapping. I’m kinda regretting right now because I ended up with two painful blisters on each side of my feet. Sigh.
Here are the highlights from Melbourne Cup Day.
Special love and thanks to S. Wallis and Demilinery for dressing me, and the amazing fashion illustration by Megan Hess.

The Lexus Pavilion was a triple-storey marquee themed around “Modern Luxe” which was designed by MIM Design. Their design was expressed by a display of spring pastel colours, green and pink carpeted areas with hundreds of light bulb vases hanging from the ceiling (on second level), also a sky deck rooftop space designed by Jamie Durie. The wait staff had their own custom-designed Country Road ensembles; and you couldn’t miss the new shiny chrome-wrapped Lexus NX sedan which has been turning heads all day inside (and outside peering into) the Lexus Design Pavilion! This wasn’t the first time I’ve seen Lexus custom wrap their cars in chrome, because a month ago I spotted the new chrome-wrapped Lexus RC 350 F Sport 2015 (and it has velvet-wrapped side mirrors too) at New York Fashion Week, and I must add it was fully dope. Yes, you can tell that I love my cars so you can imagine all the excitement when I got invited to attend and snap up the fashionable crowd and action in and around the Lexus design Pavillion!
Amongst the guests were Margaret Zhang from ShinebyThree, Pip Edwards, Kate Waterhouse and Henry Holland. Celebrities also included the real housewives of Melbourne, The Block winners, Jamie Durie, Karl Stefanovic and Lisa Wilkinson.
I had such a great experience at Lexus so I can’t wait to snap more inside life of Lexus at Melbourne Cup and Oak’s Day. See you all there!
