With racing spirit about to be in full bloom as Melbourne's Spring Racing Carnival kicks into gear my money is on the 'fashions on the field' to provide a few surprises. Though it seems no hemline or amount of bare skin would cause a stir these days, this was certainly not the case in the 1960's where supermodel Jean Shrimpton caused a stir in her white mini dress. More shocking it is now to come across an elegant midi-dress at most Australian race meets, this is my somewhat classy interpretation of Jean's iconic Australian moment in fashion.
Beautiful and carefree Jean Shrimpton at Derby Day.
