Monika back on the cat­walk

The West Australian - - AAA WEEKEND -

For­mer Miss Uni­verse Aus­tralia Monika Radulovic still has what it takes to strut her stuff on stage.

The 2015 Miss Uni­verse Aus­tralia ti­tle­holder at­tended Tip­ple’s lav­ish Mel­bourne Cup day cel­e­bra­tions at As­cot Race­course

where she took out sec­ond place in fash­ions on the field.

“You know they say if you’re not first, then you’re last, but I’m still very proud and I had to wear a sash and I thought my days of wear­ing a sash were be­hind me but ob­vi­ously not,” she told AAA Week­end.

The Sur­vivor Aus­tralia con­tes­tant is no stranger to min­gling in some of the best mar­quees at Flem­ing­ton, but says Perth’s def­i­nitely giv­ing Mel­bourne a run for its money.

“Can I just say Tip­ple is on par with Mel­bourne and Flem­ing­ton in terms of how they’ve put ev­ery­thing to­gether; it is first class,” Radulovic, pic­tured right at Tip­ple, said.

“But I think the way that Perth dif­fers from Mel­bourne is ev­ery­one here, I just feel so re­laxed and ev­ery­one’s here to have a good time and that’s what it should be about first and fore­most.”

Radulovic trav­elled to Perth for the first time with new hus­band Ale­san­dro Lju­bi­cic.

“We got to drive down to Fre­man­tle and then to the Swan Val­ley — oh my gosh it was so beau­ti­ful, and just walk­ing around the city, Perth has so much to of­fer, we’ve loved it.”
