Myer Fashions on the Field on Derby Day has shown off the best of black and white although my dear friend Katie Flockart and I did buck the trend with touches of red. Then off to the Loreal tent to check out what red lippie I could wear to enhance my outfit. Came out with a fabulous goodie bag! We all know how much we love those ladies. The competition was high with simplistic views taking a centre stage. Ladies you know how I love ‘Avant Guarde’ couture, but maybe not for Derby Day. I did love the winner who did have simplistic lines with immaculate grooming and millinery skills to boot. She made her own millinery and had the composure like no other contestant I have ever seen. She strutted her Irish stuff in front of Melbourne’s Elite with such elegant composure. Did she know what she had done in Australia??? This is something that ladies take years to prepare for, yet this elegant entrant only arrived at our shores a week ago. Hats off to you, but I will not eat my hat, as they are way too beautiful. I was surprised to not see a larger number of couture garments making it to the final, but I did not know the judges brief. While shooting this event, I was wanting to do backflips at some of the fabulous outfits I saw, but just not to the judges taste. But ladies, I loved what everyone was wearing. Allot of hits that did not make the final, only to my eye, but I have such issues trying to pick winners as I want to mix and match a whole outfit and run off with it myself. Well done ladies, you were all beautiful and should be proud. But if everyone liked the same thing, would it not be boring???
