The most anticipated racing event is back, and just like last year’s OOTD, I’m favouring bold colours. Ever since I laid eyes on this elegant, emerald number by Marcs, I just knew I’de found the perfect Melbourne Cup outfit! There’s nothing I don’t love about this sophisticated piece, from the exquisite lace detailing, to the frilled sleeve detail, this frock is born to worn in the birdcage, with a glass of Moet in hand.

As for accessories, I’m channelling an opulent statement as I style my gold sequinned, Marilyn Van den Berg fascinator, with a matching glomesh clutch – otherwise an Oroton classic. Ensuring my pedicure is nothing short of perfect, I’m stepping into a pair of open toe, strappy heels by Sachi; a pair I managed to score in a Myer midseason sale.

Beauty wise, I’m letting my outfit do the talking, applying a soft palette of blush pinks to the cheeks and lips and teaming with slick, straight hair.
