The Races Recap

They say it’s the race that stops a nation. And once upon a time it may have been, but it seems the focus has tilted just slightly.

With each year the Spring Racing Carnival is a little more about what marquee offered the best cocktails, and a lot more about who wore what.

And if you think about it, it’s basically fashion week without the parade. Oh hold on, there is a parade. :/

But really, who could blame them? We certainly don’t. We’re too preoccupied with the winner of Fashions on the Field to notice who won the cup.

And just in case you managed to miss the influx of races outfits that flooded our feeds, don’t you worry, we’re here to give you the races recap.

Let’s see who they real winner is, hey?


Tanja Gacic from @myempiricallife is in with a good chance in this stunning Maticevski dress. A full circle skirt calls for simple accessories like Juliette in white. A matching white clutch paired with the accessory of the season- pearls of course- make for the perfect finish.


Could she put a foot wrong if she tried? @becjudd nails her outfit with a bold print and an even bolder headpiece. Rae’s black and white tones pair perfectly with this colour palette and Peter Pilotto dress. The odds are looking pretty good.


When you can make a statement this bold in simple shades of grey you know you’re in with a good chance. @nadiabartel rocks the perfect peplum in By Johnny. The only thing it needs? A step in the right direction with Rainer.


It may have been a few years ago now, but it’s not hard to remember why @jenhawkins_ won Miss Universe. This Maticevski figure hugging number in pastel pink lets Jen’s body do all the talking. Elongate those already sky high pins with Karolina and we’re ready to place our bet.
