The Magic Millions raceday took place last Saturaday and the Moët & Chandon VIP Marquee was the place to be! Zara Phillips MBE, Patron of Magic Millions Racing Women was joined by an A list line-up of celebrity guests including Rachael Finch, Jodi & Braith Anasta, model Amanda Ware, Myer Ambassador Kate Peck, Pia Miller & Melanie Vallejo.
Last week Myer showcased its Autumn/Winter fashion in Melbourne, where industry elite were treated to a preview of the new season stock including labels like Sass and Bide, Balmain, Ellery, Maticevski, Cue, Christopher Kane and Yeojin Bae. Myer ambassadors Jennifer Hawkins, Kris Smith and Kate Peck all hit the runway and showed off this Winter’s trends that include monochrome, peplums, ultra mini’s and calf-length hemlines. Check out some of my favourite looks from the catwalk…
The career of model and MTV personality Kate Peck continues to expand. Recently appointed as Myer’s national youth ambassador, Peck hit the catwalk this week alongside Jennifer Hawkins as part of the Myer Autumn/Winter 2014 fashion launch. This year, Peck will present and co-produce a new TV series called A Model’s Adventure, to be aired on the National Geographic channel. I caught up with the 26-year-old to chat about taking the leap from modelling to TV presenting, her love of motorbikes and her awkward moment with Daniel Craig.
The Magic Millions Raceday took place at the Gold Coast Turf Club. The VIP marquee was the place to be; guests were treated to flowing Moët & Chandon and a delicious menu by Matt Moran. The Magic Millions Sales and Raceday have established their reputation on the international racing scene, and have fast become “must be there” events worldwide for buyers, punters and fashionistas. Raceday wouldn’t be complete without Myer’s famous Fashions on the Field competition and this year Magic Millions will host the Queensland State Final.
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.
