Second runner up was Natalie Bikicki of local label Natalilouise millinery in her own hat design and as for her dress, “I don’t actually know where it’s from as it was a gift”. Lucky!
First runner up was Ashlea Harvey from Cairns in a great custom-made printed dress and millinery by Amanda Macor.
And taking out the crown is Sydneysider Kelli Odell. In a full-skirted Anaessia dress, Neil Grigg hat with accessories by Mimco and Tony Bianco shoes, Odell was the picture of a demure 1950’s young lady.
Judging by the Fashion Stakes winners; latte colours and strong prints, both tribal and vintage style, are in.
Cox Plate and Flemington racecourse here we come!
