No hat required: Bambi Northwood-Blyth

You know someone oozes cool-factor when they can shun the traditional race wear and still steal the spotlight at the race marquee. No hats required for Bambi Northwood-Blyth, whose only accessories at Saturday’s Caulfield cup were a masculine wristwatch and boyfriend Dan Single; her ultra-cool hairstyle knotting its way down the centre of her head like a horse’s mane, a solitary hint of equestrian theming in an outfit that broke convention in all the right ways.

Under one of Burberry Prorsum’s covetable mod fall 2011 coats, Bambi’s Ksubi minidress was panelled in complimentary colours: khaki green, a soft chambray blue, and a leopard print. Adding height and an added dash of sex-appeal to the outfit was a pair of skyscraping Burberry Prorsum platform heels.

While the word adorable no doubt sprung into all our minds as Bambi quietly outshone racegoers all throughout the David Jones marquee, the strongest factor wasn’t just her off-duty model appeal; it was the reminder that dressing to suit one’s self – and not just the occasion – is a must.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person. With a wardrobe that spans three different rooms, her approach to fashion is a mixture of current-season key pieces mixed with vintage finds she's sourced on innumerous shopping trips around the world's more cultured capitals. Despite a disparate approach to shopping, Tania is adamant that the key to mixing vintage with new season is to stick to key looks and colours that work for oneself. And it's a theory that she works into her writing for, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
