The TAB Doomben 10,000 Day kicks off the Channel Seven Brisbane Racing Carnival this year. What can we expect in the way of fashion?

This year, you’re going to see everyone being more adventurous with their attire. Think power suits in rich colours and headpieces made from metal, leather, velvet or pearls. Men will push the boundaries with their suits and accessories, too.

This year’s theme is Bold Colour. What are your top colour picks for the season?

I am really excited for this year's autumn winter colouring. Expect to see colours like magenta, blush, cornflower blue, emerald, plums and burgundies on race days.

In your opinion, which Australian personality nails their racing look every time?

I always love Jodi Anasta’s race day looks! She nails it every time.

For hair, cool updos or beautiful loose curls paired with a pearl or sparkly hair clip. Makeup will be subtle, focusing on fresh skin and natural tones, or a lip colour that matches your outfit!
