The above photo is so funny to me, another shot of me with a gorgeous tall model totally dwarfing me! This time it's the beautiful Alice Burdeau, star of two Vogue covers and the most successful Australia's Next Top Model winner ever! I love the always gracious Alice, she is currently dating another good friend hot photographer Christian Blanchard. In my defense Alice is 6 foot and she's wearing 4 inch heels, yeh ok I'm short!
This week Alice was the star model for a fashion show I styled at Melbourne Central focussing on Spring Racing Carnival Fashion and highlighting top designers; Thurley, CK Calvin Klein, Arthur Galan, Nine West, Mimco, Alannah Hill, Dom Bagnato and designer store Fame Agenda.
The colour palette of the fashion show needed to be vibrant and 'spring like' so I chose outfits accordingly. A big thank you to my assistants Steph Marks, Jess Shoppee and Felicity Maniszewski. I especially have to comment on Steph who's Grandmother passed away the morning of the show and she insisted that she see through her commitment, really living 'that the show must go on'. Big thanks Stephy.
Hats are a must for Spring Racing Carnival and I always say when people complain about having to wear one at this time of year, ' When in your everyday life to you get to dress like a movie star?' I'm all about feeling great about yourself through the clothing you choose to wear.
Love love love these white Karen Walker sunglasses from Fame Agenda and the beautiful Iskra (from Giant Models) comp card underneath shows what a beauty she is!
Styling a Spring Racing Carnival fashion show is fun with all the accessorizing needed.
Colourful shoes from Nine West really make an outfit pop! Love those cork platforms.

The show was held in the atrium walkway on a lawn catwalk to give that spring feel.
Mens style hats on women give a modern look to Race wear.
The fab Kate Peck from Giant in Thurley, CK bag and Nine West shoes.
