Chadstone Fashion Stakes: Caulfield Cup Spring Racing Carnival Fashion 2013

With such glorious Spring weather it’s apt that my Caulfield Cup Day seemed touched by a theme of ‘the birds and the bees’. The birds were on a 50’s-inspired sparrow print dress and the bees make an appearance as I buzzed around (a beeline if you will) the racetrack from David Jones‘ sleek orchid-adorned marquee to the Fashion Stakes stage. The fashion competition seems to be ever more fiercely contended each year at Caulfield; the grand finale featuring far more than a trio of worthy winners. Outfits ran the gamut featuring everything from vintage (actual via mothers and grandmothers and inspired), heavy metals (gold reigned), an entire boutique’s worth of Scanlan & Theodore to the avant garde (sculpted bird of paradise blooms). Here are some of the best racewear looks and accessories that caught my eye at the 2013 Caulfield Cup.
