What I Wore: 2019 Oaks Day

7th November, 2019

Oaks Day is traditionally ladies’ day so the dress code is all about soft feminine looks. It’s the perfect time to embrace my girly side, so I always have a lot of fun with my outfit on the day, favouring pretty prints and accessories.

I saw this Prada dress and thought it was perfect for the occasion. The accordion pleat skirt and the frilled bib detail is classic and polished, but the playful lip print gives it a more modern feel. It’s always fun to work a print into a race day look and I tend to gravitate towards those that are fun and have a vibrant energy.

It’s always great to designate a focal point to any outfit and in this instance it was definitely the dress. Pink and black is always a fun colour combination so I decided to accentuate the touches of pink on the dress with dark accessories. Of course, I couldn’t go past the black textured Maticevski Prometheus clutch with urchin-like beaded detail—it added a fashion forward element to my look and I love accessories that are unique looking. Black heels with knotted detail and an oversized bow worked well with the rest of my outfit. But it’s always fun to incorporate some truly beautiful jewellery into any race day look and the Chaumet bracelets I was wearing added a luxe touch to my ensemble.

What I Wore: A night out with Chaumet

28th September, 2019

I’ve been lucky enough to work with French jewellery house Chaumet during spring racing season (and will be doing so again this year) so I’m familiar with the brand’s timeless and luxe aesthetic. During a recent dinner hosted by brand, I knew I wanted to wear something sophisticated and sleek when it came to my look.

I couldn’t look past a modern take on an LBD in the form of the below Toni Maticevski cocktail dress. The high fluted and ruffled neckline perfectly lifts the simple silhouette of the midi dress striking the right balance between drama and understated elegance. What I particularly loved is the gold lamé cascading ruffle feature which just gave it a theatrical touch.

When it came to my jewellery I opted for a pair of gold drop earrings by Chaumet and the gorgeous pairing of a gold bangle and a diamond bracelet worked back with two simple rings. It’s always such a thrill when I am able to wear beautiful jewellery such as the pieces I wore on the night. It’s such a great way to be able to experience first hand a brand with such an impressive, and notable legacy.

My week on Instagram

15th September, 2019

This week, I’ve been so excited to kick off all my spring racing partnerships. It’s always a big time of year for me and I’m always so lucky to be able to work with some really great brands.

I’m thrilled to be partnering up with luxury jewellery house Chaumet for spring racing again this year. And this week I was so happy to be able to attend a beautiful dinner the brand hosted at Quay restaurant, to officially welcome the arrival of the Josephine High Jewellery collection. They’ve always got some really exquisite pieces so I am very much looking forward to showcasing the range across my race day outfits.

Colgate White Optic Stakes Day is also just around the corner and if you’re attending, be sure to check out below my video shot in collaboration with Elle Australia. I take you through my tips for the ‘splash of red’ theme which is a perfect reason to go bright and bold with your look.

A touch of Paris at the races

14th November, 2018

Like most women I’ve always had a huge appreciation for beautiful jewellery. I’ve always admired the craftsmanship that goes into each piece and also the story that each design tells. So I was thrilled to be able to work with French jewellery house Chaumet for the Melbourne Cup Carnival. Founded in 1780, it quickly became the official jeweller for Empress Josephine. Its collections today are still handcrafted in Paris’ place Vendôme, with each piece having a sophisticated and timeless Parisian sensibility.

I wore Chaumet pieces for each of my looks for the key spring racing days and was spoilt for choice with Chaumet’s three unique universes to choose from. Each universe — Josephine, Liens and Jardins is a unique collection with a distinct aesthetic and personality. The Josephine universe echoes the history of the brand, with elegant pieces that are designed to make a statement. Jardins has a whimsical feel, incorporating a slightly more playful nature whilst Liens is about sentimental pieces that are designed to make special moments in life.

I am the first to admit I had a ball picking out pieces but without a doubt the one I was most excited about was wearing the Josephine Aigrette Imperiale tiara at Derby Day. Chaumet is known as the house of the tiara, having created over 2000 tiaras since its inception, so I was in expert hands. The first time I tried it on I definitely had my very own princess moment. Images don’t do the tiara justice — it really was exquisite. Made of 18-carat white gold and dotted with 212 brilliant cut diamonds, it added a touch of sparkle to my monochrome look and was a definite conversation piece throughout the day.

For Melbourne Cup, Oaks Day and Stakes Day I was able to wear a few pieces from the various collections, and each definitely gave my outfits a special touch. What I liked most was that each design was unique and had a standout element whether it be an interesting shape or a gorgeous stone and all elevated my looks — as only a striking piece of jewellery can.

If you want to get up close and personal with these beautiful pieces you can head to Chaumet’s boutiques in Westfield Sydney and Chadstone Shopping Centre
