I was on reporting duties for 7 Racing again for Longines Queen Elizabeth Stakes Day at Sydney’s Royal Randwick. Today was all about this amazing Louis Vuitton dress. While the silhouette is classic and understated, what I love about it is the detail and colour that elevates it into something more. The blue and white colour palette, with the oversized LV monogram adds a bold touch to this look, while the oversized full length zipper makes for a modern finish.
It’s autumn racing time which means straw hats are in hibernation and it’s all about rich textures such as felt. This hat by Helen Kaminski was perfect for the day, but what I love is that it’s such a sleek design that I could easily wear it out and about during winter. As far as accessorising for this look, I knew I wanted to add another punchy colour to avoid it getting lost within the striking features of the dress, and this pink bag by Bulgari seemed just the right fit. Then to cap of my look I opted for minimalist Stuart Weitzman heels to avoid any busyness from overtaking the look and feel of the dress.
