It's Melbourne Cup,
but not as you know it...
Bucking the longstanding trend of fancy dresses, OTT headpieces and uncomfortable shoes;
This year's Matisse Beach Club Melbourne Cup event was all about kicking back, relaxing with cocktail in hand enjoying the day.
But of course even a laidback day in the sun needs a runway show to give it that race-day vibe.
So The Studio brought guests a different kind of Melbourne Cup experience featuring stylish, wearable looks that will take you all the way through summer.
Not a fascinator in sight...
