Never underestimate the power of a platinum blonde with the right shade of red lipstick. The radiant Dani Adey stunned as the Social Media Ambassador for The Starting Gate area, sporting a navy Keepsake The Label jumpsuit with floral detail in the perfect hue to ignite her ferocious lip look – and of course, making that Insta-famous pearlescent smile pop.
Paired with a flirtatious low ponytail by Adriana Marmino at Boris The Cuttery, Dani chose a red floral fascinator from Mimi-Jane Millinery as the first step in collating her ensemble for the UBET Adelaide Cup on the March long weekend. A firm believer in keeping race-wear in accordance with her personal style, Dani knew that statement headpiece would be a success.
Dani’s hand was embellished with a triple halo rose gold and platinum ring with a one carat centre brilliant diamond from Class A Jewellers, as she kept in close contact with her shoulder bag, appropriately packed with her race day survival kit of powder, gloss and a little extra foundation.
As any race goer knows, your heel selection can break your outfit - as well as your composure. We take a look at the Dani’s pre-cup plan that kept her dancing the day away on the exhilarating grounds of Morphettville...
LET'S TALK FASHION
For Adelaide Cup Day I: Was deciding whether to wear a jumpsuit or a dress - I decided on a Keepsake jumpsuit
I chose this because: I had a beautiful red floral fascinator from Mimi-Jane Millinery already organised and when I was selecting what to wear from BNKR - it was perfect. The jumpsuit was navy with a red floral print through it, the head piece matched perfectly!
And my shoes of choice was? A standard nude block heel. I believe when attending the races you need to be super comfortable as you are on your feet all day, so stilettos are a no go for me.
Accessories looked like: I was lucky enough to wear a triple halo rose gold and platinum ring with 1 carat center brilliant diamond from Class A Jewellers.
My hot tip for choosing the right outfit? Dress to your style and try and have a ‘stand out’ piece with your outfit weather it is your jewellery, headwear or statement dress.
Number one rule for race day dressing: Stick to the dress code - nothing too revealing or too tight; you want to stay classy on Race Day!
What not to do: Wear uncomfortable shoes- nothing worse!
LET'S TALK BEAUTY
What came first – the headwear or hair style? Headwear - a red leather posy headpiece by Mimi-Jane Millinery.
And my hairstyle was? By Adriana Marmino from Borris Cuttery. We did a hair trial and decided to go for a low pony for the day - I absolutely loved it!
My hot tip for choosing the perfect head piece: I believe you need to choose the right headpiece that best describes your style and then build your outfit around it. That’s exactly what I did on Adelaide Cup and everything matched perfectly.
My make up for Adelaide Cup looked like: I went for a natural bronzed eye with a red lip
Make up essentials I packed for a day at the track: I always have my MAC Studio Fix Powder Plus foundation as well as lipstick and a lip-gloss to top up throughout the day.
My favourite thing about The Races: I love everything about The Races - from dressing up, socialising or having a dance with friends
