Melbourne Cup | MYER Marquee

Simon HancockComment

When Australia’s leading fashion house invites you to Flemington to experience the magic of Melbourne Cup there’s only one response that will suffice; a resounding HELL YES.

We travelled to Melbourne with Lauren Silvers from Glamazon and Luc Wiesman from D’Marge to indulge in a day of serious style and sensational champagne in the Birdcage, home to the MYER Marquee and the spot to be during Cup Day. I was dressed in a light blue Topman suit, white shirt and navy accessories.

A light blue suit that I didn't spill anything on. Any. Thing. Wizard level = Dumbledore. 

Fellow guests included Jennifer Hawkins, Kris Smith, Kate Peck, Hamish & Andy, Rachael Finch, Sam Frost Sasha Mielczarek, Carissa Walford and many more.

We sipped champagne from crystal glassware, enjoyed steamed pork sliders, lost a few bets and busted out some next level dance moves as the energy heightened throughout the afternoon.

We also made our 8am flight back to Sydney the follow morning without any complications. That, my friends, is a win worth bragging about.
