Elyse Knowles, Ambassador Spring Racing Carnival 2015

Elyse Knowles, Ambassador Spring Racing Carnival 2015

It's that time of year again... spring racing!! And I am so stoked to be this years Spring Racing Carnival 2015 Ambassador! I cannot wait!! 

It's crazy to think that this time last year I was getting ready to attend my first big horse racing event & now this year I'm going as the ambassador.  SO pumped and excited!!! 

I had my first shoot the other day for the Herald Sun with one of the stars of the event... Efficient! Efficient is the name of the beautiful horse ... he was my partner in crime for the day (and of course the legendary jockey Damian Lane... @LaneDamian on Twitter)!! You might have seen some of the pics floating around in the paper & on social media. The legend Lana Wilkinson (@lanawilkinson) has been waving her magic want as usual as my stylist! The red dress was by Dion Lee  ... it was absolutely awesome! 

Last night was the official opening of the spring carnival down at the MCG ... this was so good! Pretty cool to be standing on the same ground as the big footy final last week too! Lana dressed me in a Yeojin Bae dress, Manning Cartell shoes & a Sass and Bide bag...not too shabby! 

For all the info you need about the carnival jump onto the official website... Otherwise diarise the below race days & come down to Caulfield Flemington to have a bet with me :) Good excuse to get all fancy for the day!
