Spring at the Lexus pavilion

This year, Derby Day had no help from naughty Melbourne weather with it’s decided reluctance to crack open the skies for constant sunshine or warm up the temperatures for girls in their traditional spring monochrome. Still, the Birdcage hummed with champagne, laughter and fun. The first day of the Spring Racing Carnival was all about fashion and how to adhere to the black and white rule in the most unique way possible. I had so much fun marquee hopping and hanging out with friends. Hereforth are my top picks of this year’s crème da la crème .. .

Best champagne: Mumm marquee.. Mumm champagne was getting poured everywhere but the Mumm marquee was the epicentre of sparkling good times. Let’s not forget the sword champagne opening.

Best views: Emirates. With it’s views over the track and a sprawling balcony, the Emirates tent was the place to watch the races

Best cocktails: Myer marquee. So many delicious cocktails, so little time.

Best dressed couple hands down were Michael and Lindy Klim. He wore a Hugo Boss suit and she wore a Dolce & Gabbana dress. They both wore Louboutin shoes.

Best food : Lexus pavillion! Not only did Attica’s Ben Shewry present a capsule restaurant concept with a delicious 3 course lunch but Neil Perry featured food from soon to launch Burger Project. There was even a gelato bar on the roof.

Best décor : Lexus pavillion. Springtime at its best

Best dancing: Lavazza marquee. I kinda had to be dragged out of there at the end of the day!

Thanks Flemington for another fun Derby day!
