Top Fashion From The 2016 Spring Racing Carnival

Every year at the Spring Racing Carnival we are wowed with amazing fashion, bespoke millinery and gorgeous accessories. With the 2016 Carnival fashion stakes being no exception, we've decided to wrap up our favourite looks from each major race day.​

BMW Caulfield Cup

Starting with BMW Caulfield Cup, no one took our breath away more so than Jesinta Franklin. The model stopped racegoers in their tracks in a Rachel Gilbert dress with floral detailing, and a Dolce and Gabbana crown with Sarina Suriano jewelry.

Emirates Melbourne Cup

At the race that stops the nation there was one woman that stopped the fashion world - Jen Hawkins. Wearing a backless, red Misha Collection jumpsuit with a matching oversized Melissa Jackson Millinery hat, Jen took out the title for best dressed hands down.
