Melbourne Cup Day

Elyse Knowles Melbourne Cup Day 2018

Another amazing day trackside despite the insane down pours! Cup Day was so, SO wet! Through the grey clouds & pouring rain however, I have to say a thank you to stylist Elliot Gaurnaut for styling me in sunshine! Yesterday I wore a top & pant combo by Acler (@aclerwoman) which you can find at Myer. The warm yellow tones honestly made it seem like a warm, spring day. My tortoise shell earrings & clutch were by Valet Studio (@valetstudio) & my by Melissa Jackson Millinery (@melissajacksonmillinery)

Beauty wise, thank you so much to Maria Uva (@marieuva) & Chantelle Baker for my make up. (@chantellebaker). Like Elliot, these two beauties were with me on Derby Day too … so lucky to be surrounded by these creative geniuses!

Myer (@myer), you were an outstanding host as always! What a privilege to share the carnival with you all! These huge events take a team of people to organise so thank you to EVERYONE who was part of the Melbourne Cup celebrations! You are all incredible.

And of course, wishing a huge congratulations to the beautiful horse Cross Counter, his Jockey Kerrin McEvoy and trainer Charlie Appleby for taking out the race that stops the nation! Hope you & the rest of the team are celebrating in style!

Enjoy the rest of Spring Racing guys! So much more amazingness to come :)
