What I Wore: The Everest 2023

17th October, 2023

As the richest race on turf, The Everest is always one of the biggest events in the racing calendar. I was there on hosting duties with 7 Racing over the weekend and it’s the kind of event that requires something big and bold. Enter this colour blocked dress by Rebecca Vallance. Pastel blue and green is always such an impactful colour combination and in this instance its vibrancy was perfect for a gorgeous spring day in Sydney. It’s also a design that embraces one of spring racing’s biggest trends. Hot tip: bows are going to be having a major fashion moment over the coming months.

I wanted to provide some contrast with my accessories and pastel pink was the ideal complementary colour. It adds a feminine touch and lifts the pastel tones in the dress. Continuing the bow theme I opted to wear this headpiece by Somewhere Here, the oversized bow paired with the pink veil added a classic touch to such a playful look. Weaving some more pink into this outfit (if Barbie taught us anything there’s no such thing as too much pink), I opted for a Rabanne bag. With its intricate disk design, it added some texture to my look while tying into the pink hue of my headwear. Spring racing is definitely licence to have a little fun with your outfit, and this look at Everest certainly set the right tone for the coming weeks!

What I Wore: Everest Day

16th October, 2021

It feels so good to be back trackside after so many months away. I was back on reporting duties for 7 Racing at today’s Everest Day at Sydney’s Randwick Racecourse and was so thrilled to be back doing what I love. Not to mention dressing up again! After months of living in loungewear and activewear it felt great to be putting on a nice outfit and all the rituals that go with a big event. Having my hair and makeup done and the lovely feeling that comes from feeling polished and put together is something that I’ve really missed. And what a look to kick things off with!

This white Scanlan Theodore midi dress has the most beautiful texture — the overlay resembles a cluster of flowers and in a crisp white I feel it just pops. It goes to show how a simple silhouette with just the right finishing touches can really elevate a look and give it some extra personality. Working with white is the perfect canvas for adding interesting accessories, and often it’s the perfect excuse to go bold. So I did. These cornflower blue heels, also by Scanlan Theodore were the perfect splash of colour this look needed and added an extra fun touch. As far as accessories go, I kept my hair sleek and simple, but added two Fendi hairclips to finish off the look. While a navy Fendi pouch was just the right elegant accessory to carry all my essentials, and teal sunglasses offered an extra hint of drama, perfectly offset by the freshness of the dress. All in all, a great ensemble to kick off the return to being at the races. Bring on more days like this!
