Who Wore What – Canberra's Student Race Day

Congratulations, we’ve made it! Winter is now well and truly behind us and the Spring racing carnival is here. With Melbourne Cup only a few weeks away now, it is time for us to start trying on fascinators and planning our outfits for the rest of the racing season.
As an ambassador of Thoroughbred Racecourse, Canberra’s Student Race Day is always one of my favourite events as it is the first chance to have a glimpse of the different styles and colours making the rounds.
I was lucky enough to MC the Fashions on the Field for this race day and was determined to dress the part.

The beautiful girls at Momento Dezigns in Manuka, dressed me in this Thurley statement dress, which is available online at

Due to the extravagant details in this garment, I paired it with a simple gold crown and a slick-back pony-tail. I endeavoured to make orange flourish throughout my look by adding a smoky orange eye and bright orange lips.
Congratulations to our second runner-up on the day Sally Martindhu. Red was the colour of winter this season and it’s so good to see the love for it continuing through Spring. Sally is a prime example of what classic race-wear should look like.
Our gorgeous runner-up on the day Sadia Nabila took the pant-suit to the next level. We saw a lot of these getting around earlier this year and it’s great to see her owning the style by mixing-it-up with a splash of colour. It’s amazing how the smallest hint of red can make an outfit go from plain to wow!

We cannot forget about our stunning winner of the day, Madison Scott who effortlessly embraced spring in this pink and red combo suit. This outfit stood out from others on the day through its uniqueness and warm feels. She managed to channel the season whilst still dressing for the cold and windy climate of Canberra.

I will be back at Thoroughbred Park in just a couple of weeks for Melbourne Cup. I can’t wait to see you all down there and check out your amazing outfits on the day!
