CUP PHOTO FUN: Plenty of flair at Fashions on the Field
FOR ROCKHAMPTON'S Madison Day Melbourne Cup is all about the fashion and the fascinator.
The local administration manager was one of the hundreds of fashionable ladies at Rockhampton's Callaghan Park yesterday but in a beautiful see-through floral frock and purple fascinator Madison stood out.
Madison, 22, said she spent close to $1000 on her races outfit.
"I spent close to $1000 but I like to dress up and spend my money on fashion so for me it's worth it," she said.
"The dress I bought from Coopers and I had my headpiece made by Fascinator by Kylie who's a local girl so it's all locally bought which is important.
Purple was the main colour I went with as it's a great colour for the spring carnival and florals is always nice.
