AAMI Victoria Derby Day 2016

And just like that…. it’s here. The Melbourne Cup Carnival shifts gear with what is arguably the most outstanding day of racing on the Australasian calendar: AAMI Victoria Derby Day!  The feature race of the day, the Group 1 AAMI Victoria Derby, boasts impressive prize money of over $1 millionBUT, it’s not all about the horses. I’m back for my third year hosting Fashions On The Field and with this year marking the 54th year of Myer Fashions on the Field, It was sure to be a good one.

It’s known as Australia’s premier fashion event and AAMI Victoria Derby Day lived up to its expectations. The Women’s Racewear division  had a phenomenal turnout as did the Men’s Racewear heats. This year I was honoured to welcome my good friend and stylist to the stars, Donny Galella as my co host. I’ve shared the stage with Donny many times and I knew he was the perfect man for the job. Here are some happy snaps.
