Winner Interview - Mindarie-Halidon

On a beautiful day in Mindarie-Halidon Kealyn Madden came out on top as the day's best dressed, with a beautiful simple look starring a gorgeous floral dress. We spoke to Kealyn to find out a bit more about her race day look!


How did you feel when you won Best Dressed at the Mindarie-Halidon Cup?
I felt surprised when I won actually, but very ecstatic with receiving the prize. I wasn't even planning on entering!

Who is your dress by?
It's by Nicholas, an Australian fashion label that produces extremely beautiful dresses. 

What was the inspiration for your look?
Simple and elegant is the style I usually go for when dressing for events like these. I saw this dress and knew I had to wear it!

What do you love about a day at The Races?
The socialising and the fashion, I love looking at everyone else's individual style and take on race day fashion and gather inspiration for my next race day.

What are you tips for dressing up for a race day?
Dress to suit the weather and wear comfy shoes! My style is minimal, so accessories with nude colours to match loud or colorful dresses. Go with old accessories or plain or simple dresses. Don't overdo it with lots of accessories and a large fascinator if you already have a bright/loud dress!


There are a few days left to vote for Kealyn as the People's Choice Winner! The next opportunity to qualify for the Fashion at The Races competition is at the Jamestown Cup on October 1.
