Oaks Day luncheon is one of my favourite events, but unfortunately I just enjoy them as much without my mum by my side. Oaks Day luncheon is one of the days 'Ladies of Melbourne' lunch and wear some of their most beautiful clothes adorned with a hat.
When I look at the ladies who enter via the non red carpet, these are ladies that have made Melbourne the Fashion Capital of Australia. They may be a little more mature but they are still just as beautiful. I love seeing everyone enjoying themselves and loving their time.
When racing fashion first started, there were not ladies every day wearing such beautiful couture at the race course all the time, but some of the ladies I see at these luncheons are the most fashionable ladies that every week grace the track with their presence. They are not usually in Fashions on the Field, but they are every bit as fabulous. These are the ladies that sit in tiered dining at the track and dress for pure enjoyment and love of the races, not just a competition.
I am grateful for being able to see so many well attired ladies in one room, you are all fabulous and I understand that not only the people on the red carpet need photographing, you are worth my time and love to share your beautiful look. Hugs, Anna. x
