The Lavazza marquee Derby Day 2013 was all a buzz with fashion, italian food, gorgeous ladies, the hottest dj’s and Poppy Delevingne!
This was my first year in the Lavazza marquee and let me tell you, the talk about it being the hottest marquee in the birdcage is no lie! If only I could eat from the buffet for fresh deli cheese and prosciutto (my favourite of all favourites!) but the crumbed lamb chop definitely made up for it! OK enough about food talk, lets talk fashion and celebs, so who was in the marquee? Our fav WAG’s turned bloggers Nadia Coppolino (Lavazza fashion ambassador) and Bec Judd (looking enviously pregnant in J’Aton and Danica Erard millinery) Mel B, Lara Bingle, Sarah De Bono, forever young Nick Giannopolous and ummmm POPPY DELEVINGNE! Yes, my style icon (second to AdR of course) was an exclusive guest of Lavazza this year!
Seeing her, so natural, so lovely and friendly made me not so ‘OMG!’ but more like, I think I could actually chat to her (I am a little shy when it comes to those types of situations) She didn’t let me down from the fashion side of things, she wore a custom J’Aton white cut out dress that embodied her style completely! Her millinery, well, I was totally jealous as I really really wish I had a spare $4000 to buy my very own Dolce and Gabbana crown! I was lucky enough to meet her and told her of my jealousy with the crown, we joked that we would just wear it every day like a princess! What a moment!
Next stop… Cup day!
