First look inside the Birdcage 2016

The fabulous Samantha Jade set to belt out another hit in the Sensis Marquee!

It was glamorous! The media were invited to attend the official unveiling of Flemington’s lavish Birdcage Enclosure today. This iconic precinct is the playground of celebrities and society high-flyers during the Melbourne Cup Carnival. Invitations are always the hottest tickets in town.

I was there to capture all the fashionable action, let’s take a look at how it all went down…
