Melbourne Cup Carnival is the silly season as far as I am concerned and I was having a wonderful time, the marquees were beyond sublime with the coolest of cool floating around. Everyone who was wanting to be seen in the birdcage, was and they did not disappoint with their largest of headwear and poshest of posh bags and famous faces floating around using the loos that we all use. Yes, they are just the same as us, Humans!
The lawns were fantastic with everyone having a ball, the Champagne was flowing and the lads were turning on the charm as we only know 'blokes day' can. I love it, the sea of a lawn of young ladies, who really are having a heap of fun, and loving the camera. Not everyone was there for 'fashions on the field', but just a feel good turn out.
I must admit, before my days of wearing couture I would have probably been one of those girls on the grass on the picnic blanket with her girlfriends having a few too many, and really we have all been there and made the odd fashion fumble, but hey that is what makes us who we are today. Ladies and gentlemen of the social part of Oaks day you turned it up a notch and my floating photographer Steb caught you all looking fabulous. You are all gems! Thank you for being a part of Racing Fashion this year and I am always looking for fabulous things to be snapped away at.
