Best Dressed in the Birdcage on Derby Day

Our round up of the Best Dressed in the Birdcage on Derby Day… It was a sea of black and white in the Birdcage on Derby Day in the Myer Marquee – a light filled space with masses of colourful spring flowers.

Peplums were most definitely the trend of the day (including By Johnny and Manning Cartell) and no doubt there will be more of them coming over the next three days of the Melbourne Cup Carnival…
