Let the fun begin

Rachel Griffiths & Rachael Finch looking glamorous!

The stars were out to play at the Melbourne Cup Carnival 2016 launch yesterday! The fabulous event was also the unveiling of Flemington’s new entertainment precinct The Park.

Looking beautiful both Rachel Griffiths and Rachael Finch held the glorious Melbourne Cup as attendees arrived. The event continued with a stage presentation, speeches and a fashion showcase of the latest fashion trends.

Main stage fashion showcase!

This new fashionable precinct was remarkable with so much to offer in its lovely grassy field of flirty entertainment. I was super impressed with the design and offerings at The Park, it lifts the Melbourne Cup Carnival to a new stylish level.

Plenty of fashion inspiration for the Melb Cup Carnival!

Melbourne Cup 2015

The race that stops a nation sure knows how to put on a show! Melbourne Cup 2015 drew a massive crowd of 101,000 who witnessed a dream come true as Michelle Payne rode Prince of Penzance to become the first female jockey to win the Emirates Melbourne Cup.

The popular Birdcage Enclosure was home to a host of celebrities including international guest of the VRC and Emirates, Lady Kitty Spencer, Lleyton and Bec Hewitt and Ricky Ponting at Swisse, Jennifer Hawkins and Kris Smith in the Myer marquee, and French DJ David Guetta at G.H. Mumm.

I was on roaming reporter duties to capture the vibe, style and people. And boy was it fun, let’s take a look at the action I snapped…

We’re off and racing…

Giddy Up! Derby Day launched the start of Melbourne Cup Carnival in fabulous style on Saturday. The morning thunder storms didn’t dampen the spirits of 85,000 race-goers who flocked to Flemington Raceway. The popular Birdcage Enclosure was home to a host of celebrities including Millie Mackintosh at Emirates, Hilary Swank in the Swisse marquee and Jennifer Hawkins in the Myer marquee, while the Lavazza marquee played host to footballers Marc Murphy and Chris Judd.  The fashion was impressive and it’s great to see how people choose to express their personal style yet remain within the Derby Day fashion rules of black and white. Let’s take a look at my snaps from the fun, style and vibe of Derby Day 2015…
