I have a few things to say about this. Yes fashion hearts will be broken from around the country. Yes part of the thrill of Flemington is actually getting to walk on the same stage where Jennifer Hawkins walks. Sometimes a photograph does NOT do an outfit justice. I think there should be more criteria to this. I would like to see a flat lay of the entire outfit submitted. Then the 3 photographs required also submitted, along with VIDEO footage of the entrant so you can see how the outfit drapes, flows and moves. THEN this footage could be used as well in the lead up to the four big race days of the #melbournecupcarnival To me, nothing beats the thrill of seeing that amazing line up of style, fashion and beauty at The Park. It is breathtaking and I have seen members of the public gasp in admiration of a beautiful outfit worn by a girl with poise and sophistication. Sure they can have their photo competition, but I do think it will take away some of the glamour and the excitement of race days.
