I’m so excited that Fashion Bloggers finally premiered on the Style network last night! I hope you all got to see it. It’s slightly nerve wracking to let people into your world but it’s so much fun that you get to see what really goes on in the life of a fashion blogger! I was thrilled they were able to capture a fly on the wall perspective of my recent Vogue shoot. I felt so honored that Vogue asked the women of our family to take part in a shoot on our family property. The shoot was the first time I let my baby girl, Sophia, be photographed for a magazine so it was a very special moment for me and I will cherish the photos forever. It was also the first time my sister in-law Hoda, let camera’s in with her daughter Rose so it was so nice that both our daughters were able to be shot with “Grandma Gai” – making it a very special moment for us all as a family. The shoot was such a fun day, one I will never forget. The Vogue November issue is out now and here are some behind the scenes photos taken on the day.

The Australian Turf Club (ATC) officially launched the new Royal Randwick grandstand with a gala spectacular last Thursday night. The event kick-started with an arena performance in the Theatre of the Horse followed by a sit down Royal feast for 550 guests. The end of dinner signaled the commencement of even more festivities in the Royal Randwick ballroom. The ballroom transformed into three distinct venues, transporting guests to a carnival of circus acts, a surreal parlour of performers and a whiskey bar with live music and DJs as invitees celebrated into the night, among the first to experience the stunning makeover.
