Chic Bum­ble the hot tip for spring rac­ing Bor­row­ers De­signer dress hire booms

The West Australian - - INSIDE COVER -

Tip­ple’s Bum­ble mar­quee could be just the place to be for those want­ing to do a bit of star-spot­ting this rac­ing car­ni­val. The so­cial plat­form — de­signed to con­nect users on the ba­sis of friend­ship, net­work­ing and dat­ing — is bring­ing back its pop­u­lar mar­quee to Tip­ple’s Derby Day on Novem­ber 3 and Mel­bourne Cup Day on Novem­ber 7 at the new home of Tip­ple, track-side at As­cot Race­course.

Fresh from her ap­pear­ance on The Bach­e­lor, re­al­ity TV’s Brooke Blur­ton will be one of the high-pro­file per­son­al­i­ties in the “Bum­ble Hive”, hop­ing to let her hair down af­ter dump­ing Nick

“Honey Badger” Cum­mins. “The Bach­e­lor was a long ex­pe­ri­ence and now I get to go back to nor­mal life and do the things I love to do,” Blur­ton told AAA Week­end.

Re­cently crowned Miss Uni­verse Aus­tralia and this year’s face of Tip­ple, Francesca Hung, plans to at­tend both events and is ex­cited to be go­ing to her first ma­jor race days in Perth.

She flew in from Syd­ney this week to get her out­fit plan­ning un­der way, opt­ing for lo­cal milliner Reny Kes­tel for her all-im­por­tant head­wear.

“I’ll be wear­ing a piece by Reny Kes­tel for both days and out­fits by Man­ning Car­tel,” Hung re­vealed.

“I like block colours. I’m not much of a pat­tern girl — I like a re­ally nice bright colour and I like the trend of tai­lored suits — love that struc­tured look.”

The ladies will join model Sa­mara Tug­well, along with a swag of well-known Perth faces.

Last year’s at­ten­dees in­cluded En­tourage ac­tor Adrian Gre­nier, for­mer Miss Uni­verse Aus­tralia Olivia Rogers and Bach­e­lor in Par­adise’s Me­gan Marx.

The “Hive” off-the-track ac­tion also in­cludes a prime po­si­tion over­look­ing Fash­ions on the Field, ac­cess to the Dior pam­per room and de­li­cious sig­na­ture “Queen Bee” cock­tails. Krys­tal San­ders
