When I think of the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival, I used to think of bad Melbourne weather (honestly it always rain on Melbourne Cup Day), horse betting, oversized hats and ridiculously short dresses. Since getting embedded into the fashion industry this year, my mind has completely changed. My dear friend, Jess Dempsey (Creative Director and Style Blogger of What Would Karl Do) and I were exclusively invited to attend and snap up a storm of celebrity guests (Jennifer Hawkins, Michael and Lindy Klim, Neil Perry, Neiman Marcus, Margherita Missoni), style bloggers (Nicole Warne, Nadia Bartel, Kate Waterhouse), and fashionable people inside the Lexus Pavilion, Emirates Marquee and Lavazza Marquee. All three marquees have surely impressed us with their amazing hospitality, menu, guest appearances, entertainment and outstanding architecture. We can’t wait till what the rest of the week has installed for us on Melbourne Cup Day and Oak’s Day.
