Derby Day 2014 Highlights

It was my first time going to the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival, and what better way to experience it with my dear friend and style blogger, Jess Dempsey from What Would Karl Do. It was what I had always anticipated – Celebrity guests (Jennifer Hawkins, Alex Perry, Michael and Lindy Klim, Miss World Australia Courtney Thorp, Neil Perry, Neiman Marcus, Kerry-Anne Kennerley, Margherita Maccapani Missoni), style bloggers (Nicole Warne, Nadia Bartel, Margaret Zhang, Phoebe Montague, Cecylia Kee, Sanchia Peterson), horseracing and fashion. It wasn’t so much about the horses, but what headpiece and outfits the ladies were trending. Today was Derby Day – all to do with black and white. This year’s outfits were a mix of sophistication, texture, mesh, cut outs, patterns and wide leg pants! Headpieces were becoming more like delicate metal head bands or 3d graphical cut outs (famously designed by the clever lady, Danica Erard from Demillinery) than the traditional over-sized hat.

Lastly I would like to thank Lexus Australia, Lavazza Australia and Emirates for giving me the pleasure of experiencing your amazing hospitality and inviting me to snap all the fashionable action in the marquees. Stay tuned as I will be rolling out the content per marquee in the next few days, but for now enjoy my sneaky peeks.
