Stylist Elizabeth McMahon and fashion designer Jay Pask spend some time with Get it to talk Magic Millions Ladies Day, fashions on the field and what you shouldn’t leave home without when heading trackside
Ladies, all the ladies
Elizabeth: What styles/fashions do you expect to see women wearing at the Magic Millions Ladies Day? The look this season is from pretty pastel colours to bright prints and 1950s feminine silhouette, pencil skirts and cropped tops. So I would love to see the ladies elongating their dress hemlines and avoiding bandage dresses altogether. Jay: What is the number one thing men shouldn’t leave home without when getting dressed for the Magic Millions? A lovely, clean and polished shoe and nice socks. Men forget about their shoes, but they need a decent shoe and not a chunky sneakerlooking one either. It needs to be refined. No visible white sports socks. What’s one thing women shouldn’t leave at home without? Your headpiece should be your ticket for entry to fashions on the field. Without a hat or any headpiece your race wear is incomplete.
Jay: What is it about this event you enjoy being part of? Apart from the atmosphere and the excitement, I love the changes we’ve seen in the fashion in the last few years. The women are sticking to the protocol and expected dress codes while also being creative - and they look fantastic. I’ve been judging at the Turf Club for 12 years and it’s great to see the young crowd entering the fashions on the field and getting it right. Elizabeth: What is the number fashion tip you can give all race goers? Wear sunscreen, hydrate and have fun with your outfit! Magic Millions Ladies Day is on January 3, 2015, at the Gold Coast Turf Club. Gates open from 10am and ladies receive free entry. P 5538 1599
