Tans from terracotta to tandoori, hemlines from knee to thigh, welcome to Flemington ladies and gentlemen.
Today I was invited to attend the Westfield Doncaster Styling Suite at Flemington for the Melbourne Cup Carnival Preview Day.
The racing season in Melbourne is huge on the sporting and social calendars of anyone who is mildly interested in either.
Mostly it is a great excuse to ogle the footballers, models, wannabes, has-beens and occasional A-Lister that drop by for a bit of frivolity.
I felt a little out of place today given that I missed the spray tan boat that clearly set sail before I knew it was even docked, but as the season is just beginning I have a whole month to work on my tan as one lass told me today. True story.
Behold the magic that is 'The Birdcage'.....
