The most illustrious day in the racing calendar has arrived: The Kennedy Oaks Day!
What a sight to behold. Also known as Ladies Day, the flirty, fun and feminine occasion has galloped back around once again and is certainly delivering the race day extravagance we’d all hoped for.
Fashion truly took to the field as Melbourne’s stylish high society descended on Flemington Racecourse for the soirée, showcasing the mightiest millinery and haute couture headpieces that are worthy of a day on the green.
Of course, we wouldn’t expect anything less from the fashion capital's social set.
The effeminate dress code was followed to a tee, with the pretty pastels, flouncy florals and the best glitz and glamour on display. The dresses hit all the right notes, with showstopping makeup looks completing the celebrations.
