Flemington's Beautiful Girls Fashion Lunch, held annually by the VRC (Victorian Racing Club), is the chance for women to congregate at a sit-down lunch in racewear, while they can simultaneously ogle model (and Myer Ambassador) Kris Smith and listen to Kate Ceberano perform. (Jessica Mauboy was the headliner, but there was a last minute switcheroo. No matter: there was plenty to enjoy -Giaan Rooney and Luke Darcy acting as hosts, Kate singing and a fashion parade which included Arthur Galan AG, Jayson Brunsdon, Manning Cartell and Aurelio Costarella. With all the MKR craziness, it made sense that one of that judge Colin Fassnidge designed the menu. Yum.
Katrina Sinfield and Sophie Mayall are theatre nurses at hospital, but get frocked up for the races every year.

Barbara Licuria looking very Sophia Loren-ish. Seriously. What with the dark skin and black lace top and bustline. Winning.

Host Giaan Rooney told the girls that the fake gems on the table were take home presents, but not to make a rush for them all at once. Nadia Coppolino (centre) at my table behaved herself and didn't try to grab them out of turn.
