Derby Day

WHO - - News -

ONE AWK­WARD OUT­FIT dou­ble-up, two for­mer soap stars, Vic­to­ria’s Se­cret An­gels and a hat that turned heads. This year’s Derby Day on Nov. 4 at Mel­bourne’s Flem­ing­ton Race­course was one to re­mem­ber. Myer am­bas­sador Jen­nifer Hawkins and re­porter Francesca Cu­mani dressed in iden­ti­cal Myer-brand frocks and for­mer lo­cal ladies Natalie Im­bruglia and Melissa Ge­orge vis­ited, as well as mod­els El­yse Tay­lor and Shan­ina Shaik. In rib­bon-trimmed braids, “Shan­ina had a great time and I had a gig­gle or two with her,” says her stylist Michael Az­zollini. Karl Ste­fanovic strode in with his girl­friend, model and shoe de­signer Jas­mine Yar­brough, and The Block win­ners El­yse Knowles and Josh Barker also ad­hered to the black-and-white dress code, but it was Deputy Lib­eral Leader Julie Bishop’s dra­matic head­piece that stole the show. ■

Model Shan­ina Shaik, in an Ellery jacket, was the Mumm cham­pagne am­bas­sador. “I wanted to show an edgier side that can be achieved without a fas­ci­na­tor or crown,” says her stylist, Michael Az­zollini. Shaik’s fel­low Vic­to­ria’s Se­cret An­gel El­yse Tay­lor pulled off a 1950s-style Alex Perry num­ber.

Twenty years after her sin­gle “Torn” shot her to su­per­star­dom, Natalie Im­bruglia per­formed for Derby Day pun­ters. Fresh from win­ning The Block, El­yse Knowles frocked up in Paolo Se­bas­tian with boyfriend Josh Barker. Hamish Blake (left) and Andy Lee had a laugh.
