Usually I’d be busy juggling lots of racing commitments right now but due to current circumstances, those things are on pause. In particular I’m really missing taking on reporting duties for 7 Racing and being trackside. It felt a little strange not be at the races during autumn carnival doing fashion reports this year.
In lieu of being there, it was great to be able to chat to Jason Richardson on my team at Channel 7 recently for an ‘In Conversation with…’ series for VRC and Lexus. Having worked with VRC and a proud ambassador for Lexus for several years, it was nice to be able to talk all things racing again.
Check out my chat above where I talk to Richo about fond memories hanging out with my grandparents, my mum and her incredible career and the constant presence of racing in my life growing up and why I thought I had to get a job at the age of 10…
I was thrilled to head down to Melbourne this week to a big event at Flemington Racecourse that saw Lexus announced as the new principal sponsor of the Melbourne Cup. Having been a Lexus ambassador for several years I was excited to be there alongside my parents to hear the announcement.
I kept my look classic and elegant for such an occasion and was immediately drawn to a white Alex Perry dress with a drop waist and full skirt. It was understated and polished and was in keeping with the tone of the day. I always love some statement making accessories so this veil with a gold and black scorpion added a dramatic flair and metallic Giambattista Valli heels, which had adorable little bows as a finishing touch. In keeping with the vibe of my outfit I went for vintage inspired curls as a way to tie the ensemble together. Dressing up for this event has me already excited for other racing events on my calendar this year, especially Melbourne Cup!
