Clifton Cup Winner Best Dressed ladies Contemporary

A: I’m Elizabeth Reed. I’m from Toowoomba. I’m out here with my cousin, Emma. We do a lot of the country races together. I’m very lucky, because she lets me wear a lot of her pieces. So, this skirt is Manning Cartell, the top is Country Road, the headpiece is something that she just bought and we’ve added the veiling to it, so I’m very lucky that we can share pieces and get dressed up together, and then just enjoy country races together.

Q: Fantastic, and the hair and make-up and nails; I see you’ve got a bit of detail to nails on.

A: I go and get the nails done myself, make-up I do myself, and I’m very lucky; Emma’s talented at hair as well, so she does my hair.

Q: And how long did it take you to put it all together? Like a week, a couple of months?

A: Probably a couple of weeks. We think about it, we try and get few different colour schemes going, so I’ve got the gold, I’ve got the white, I’ve got the hot pink, and we try and match it all together and get it to work.
