BMW CAULFIELD CUP 2017: FROM THE GATES TO THE FINISH LINE.

 

The BMW Caulfield Cup, normally the dress rehearsal for Flemington, held its own this year in the style stakes. Ladies and Gents paid homage to race wear etiquette in ways above and beyond amazing and we were there to document it all. Starting early and finishing late in trademark fashion, here is a recap of the day that was. xx

 

9am: I don't think I'll wear any foundation today. My skin looks totally fine - nothing that concealer can't fix... and my brows look pretty bloody perfect. I never thought I could wear less makeup then I already did... now that I am it's a really good feeling though.

9.30am: Almost done. I'm wearing navy today, so decided on trying this new palette from Mecca, it's the Angel Pride cheek palette from Nars, and the colour is Angel Pride III.

10.30am: Just arrived at Caulfield Racecourse and ready to start. My outfit today is from David Jones and I'm wearing a Viktoria + Woods top with Rebecca Vallance trousers.

11am: Let the racing begin...

11am: Straight in and I spy these beauties. Love everything about these ladies from their matching shoes, matching frills and total opposite thoughts on dress lengths. Perfection!

Midday: I always love bumping into the ever stunning Nadia Fairfax and couldn't resist this perfect boomerang moment that's as fun as her dress and matching sunnies. 

Midday: Caulfield has turned up the heat this year and I literally haven't stopped shooting in nearly 2 hours.  This moment in particular is credited to the gorgeous Bec Judd. Those Thurley layers of pinks are to die for and so beautifully complimented by the icy blues in her friends outfit.
