During the Melbourne Cup Carnival at Flemington, we uploaded images from Myer Fashions on the Field to our Instagram and Facebook pages, giving a live commentary of the event. These are some of the images we took of contestants, judges and celebrities from the Design Award competition on Melbourne Cup Day.

The Design Award is an invitation only event that was introduced by the Victoria Racing Club in 2005.

Look under the purple wig... It's me, Angela!

Choosing not to enter the Women’s Racewear category, Angela was extended an invitation to enter the Design Award. Given we live blog the MyerFOTF competition, it seemed a good idea to continue through the competiton with live blogging from the stage.

After the heats were finished, the contestants moving onto the preliminary finals were announced
