The Melbourne Cup evokes an emotion like no other for all red blooded Australian’s. This is day not only that we see a champion take centre stage, it is the rush of hearing the barriers open and hear the roar of the crowd. Some debate that Derby is the bigger day, with larger crowds attending, and some may debate that the Cox Plate is a better race with the weight for age, but there is something timeless and special about the cup. Is it because we watch it travel around Australia with white gloves holding onto it until it is presented in the lucky owners hands? Who cares, we love it and Australia it is ours! Fashion was at an all time high with Valentino Red and Chanel being a vote apart in the final of ‘Myer Fashions on the Field’. We were all sitting with baited breath, and finally the simplistic backless piece worn by Alex Foxcroft was deemed as Cup Day’s most fashionable lady above Deborah Hunter and Nadja Sehovic in her Richard Nylon Millinery. I must say ladies are really loving the ‘green room’ experience with sparkling and canapés to add to them starring in the largest outdoor fashion event in the world. Nothing came close to the meeting with Stephen Jones, Dior’s Master Milliner. I was in awe like a teenage school girl meeting her ‘Rock Star God’. Stephen Jones is the most adorable, warm gentleman and Stephen greets you like you have known him for years. Thank you Stephen Jones for being the admirable gentleman you are. You left me speechless as many know (Kim Fletcher) never happens often when it comes to me and millinery.
