As always the Lexus Design Pavilion was THE place to be to kick off the Melbourne Cup Carnival in style, with a sea of glamorous guests in chic black and white including Kate Waterhouse, Jamie Durie, Henry Holland, The Real Housewives of Melbourne cast, Sophie Van Den Akker, Margaret Zhang, Terry Biviano, Olympia Valance, Jenna Rosenow and Emma Freedman. Fashion photographer Hugh Stewart was also in attendance allowing guests their own Gisele moment, posing for the man who recently shot the famous supermodel for Chanel.
The always stylish pavilion was simply breathtaking this year, created by Mim Design Studio, Jamie Durie and Joost Bakker. Pretty pastels looked beautiful against sleek metallic lines and of course the show stopping floral arrangements pretty enough for a Royal wedding! With a decadent sit down menu by Attica’s Ben Shewry, burgers by Neil Perry and catering by The Big Group there truly was no better place to be!
My air hostess chic look was thanks to Elle Louise for the blazer, The Iconic for the dress delivered in less than three hours (amazing!), earrings a hand me down from the best gift giving boss Julia from Tink PR, spray tan by Michelle at Skinluxe, and hair & makeup by Bec at Fratelle South Yarra. Now to get up and do it all again tomorrow!
