When spring racing icon Jennifer Hawkins stepped out in a feminine red-on-red outfit for Melbourne Cup last year, her lacy getup immediately set the benchmark for all the fashions on the field ahead.
She donned a red one-shoulder midi dress with lace detail, which added a hint of sex appeal by subtly showing off some skin. The 30-year-old model cleverly teamed the striking piece with red pointed-toe heels and a lace fascinator crown. She also incorporated white accessories like a cute hard-case clutch and a simple diamond-encrusted white watch, plus fresh makeup and neutral-hued nail polish, to make sure not to overdo the bold tones.
To get the look at home, Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure Spring Colour Collection‘s Almost Almond shade works as the perfect nail color to tone down and complement eye-catching colours like red, cobalt blue, bright orange and neons.
With the always anticipated Melbourne Cup nearing, and with spring racing season already in full swing, be sure to take a cue from the spring racing queen herself. To get Jennifer’s covetable red-on-red look, check out our online picks below.
