VIS­UAL DE­LIGHT

FASH­ION­ABLE CROWD CONQUERS CHIC AT SUN­SHINE COAST TURF CLUB MEL­BOURNE CUP CEL­E­BRA­TION

Life & Style Weekend - - CLOSET -

WORDS: NATALIE TINK

This year I at­tended the Audi White House Cel­e­bra­tions Mel­bourne Cup Mar­quee at Sun­shine Coast Turf Club. The event was to ben­e­fit the Hear and Say Cen­tre on the Sun­shine Coast and the amaz­ing work they do for chil­dren and their fam­i­lies. The day was filled with fab­u­lous Pol Roger Cham­pagne, de­li­cious canapés and lots of fash­ion as far as the eye could see. Fas­ci­na­tors in all shapes and sizes cre­ated from leather, lace and vel­vet. Oh my, I was in fash­ion heaven as the room quickly filled with ladies in frocks and, not to leave out the lads, who turned up the fash­ion stakes this year and joined in on the fun of dress­ing up. Mel­bourne Cup is quickly be­com­ing more about the fash­ion than it is the rac­ing, es­pe­cially in the ex­clu­sive mar­quees. This year we saw navy, red, pink and yel­low; more colours than you could ex­pect in a bird aviary. All ladies were flut­ter­ing their fab­u­lous threads as they swanned around mar­quees and en­joyed the at­mos­phere on the day. IStyle TV pre­sen­ter Tam Wrigley hosted this year’s Fash­ions on the Field, that drew an enor­mous crowd of peo­ple watch­ers and fash­ion­istas. This year’s crown was given to my fel­low Life & Style colum­nist Danni Mor­ri­son, who with­out doubt was look­ing fit for Flem­ing­ton in her stun­ning Asilio dress.

PHO­TOS: CON­TRIB­UTED.
