The bird cage.

This year Lauren was lucky enough to be invited to the Birdcage for the Melbourne Cup.

After arriving in style with Simon Hancock of The Huddle Group and Luc Wiesman of Dmarge in a brand new Rolls Royce Ghost, she attended events inside the Myer Marquee, the Lexus nest and the Lavazza tent.

Throughout the day, Lauren rubbed shoulders and chatted with Margaret Zhang, Jennifer Hawkins, Carissa Walford, Didier Cohen, Nikki Phillips, Alex Perry, Sam Frost, Aisha Jade, Megan Irwin, Rochelle Fox, Kate Peck, Nadia Fairfax, James Tobin and the Bachie, just to name a few ;). 

Lauren reports that it was a very well organised, fun and chic event. She sipped on Mumm champagne from beautiful Waterford crystal champagne flutes while nibbling on delicious steamed pork sliders and dancing with her friends! 

Lauren decided to go full glam for the big day. Lauren got her hair done at our fabulous partner salon Edwards and Co. in Melbourne. Her hair was styled by colour and cutting specialist, Melvin Royce Lane. Lauren opted for natural ethereal wave, to compliment her golden leaf headpiece.

Lauren wore a navy Winona dress, red tasseled Lipstick heels, a vintage gold headpiece and a Furla clutch. 

Lauren's pick of the day for best head piece was Aisha Jade's veil. 

Lauren's pick for best dressed was Mimie Lashiry.
