Magic Millions Race 2013 was recently held at the Gold Coast turf club. The event drew everyone from Gold Coast’s fashion elite, racing enthusiasts and even a royal to enjoy a day of racing despite the hot and muggy conditions.
The Queen’s granddaughter and Racing Ambassador Zara Phillips was spotted enjoying the day in the Moet and Chandon Marquee in a earthy hued number that unfortunately didn’t rate to highly among the fashion set.
Georgia Gardiner, 19, took out first prize in the ‘Fashions on the field’ event winning a return trip to Paris for two, a $15,000 Calleija jewellery piece, a $2500 Myer voucher and a pair of R.M Williams boots. (With prizes like this why oh why did I not enter)!!!!!
The Elanora local impressed the judges in a neon orange Shakuhachi dress and a hat she made herself.

Of all the looks on the day though I would have to say Kate Waterhouse in her SS13 Peter Pilotto shift dress was my absolute favourite. The colours, cut and embellishments on this piece made it a beautiful work of art.

The night before the big day of racing we were treated to the Magic Millions Gala Cocktail party held by gcVIP founder Andrew Meadowcroft. The lavish event was held in the poker room at Jupiter’s Hotel and Casino for over 180 guests. With amazing entertainment, canapés and Chandon flowing all night it certainly got everyone in the mood for all the action on the field the following day.
