Unlike many other ladies out there today, I made it. You did not see Little Miss Me scampering down the pavement in bare feet at Flinders Street station, heels in hand. I kept me curls in place and my shoes on my feet. Lipgloss intact, fascinator feathers unfrayed, sun-screened and unburnt. Advantage me.

Today was one of my favourite days of the year (apart from Christmas and Easter… and I mainly love them because they give me a justification for eating chocolate for breakfast…)

I pity you guys on the other side of the sea, who have no idea about the glory of Fashions on the Field. Being upstanding so that we can sing only one verse of ‘Advance Australia Fair’- purely because no one is quite sure what’s going on in the second verse (although I secretly think it’s superior to the first verse). The legend of trashbags limping home- a little boozed and with heels in hand.

Melbourne Cup Day. I love this day because no one else in the world cares about it. I adore the whole notion that the city closes down for a horse race, although most girls spend the day focussed on the fashion, fascinators and hatinators, rather then horses. I also cherish the way my mother packs a picnic and ensures that the Club sandwiches will never get confused.

They say don’t meet your heroes.

In my short but somewhat charmed life (not counting my propensity to wear way too much glitter make up in high school) I have met my fair share of idols. It should also be mentioned that I had pretty low standards in terms of hero worship growing up… pretty much anyone who had a pulse and who’d appeared on TV at some stage was suitable of making the grade.

As a child, I stalked minor celebrities at shopping centre appearances and carried a tattered autograph book with on my person at all times. I nearly choked on my Frosty Fruit icy pole when I saw Cathy Freeman and Shane Warne having lunch at a cafe when I was 9. At 12, I had no life and almost fainted when the whole cast of my favourite TV show (*cough* ‘All Saints‘ *cough*) replied to my fan mail by sending me their autographs.

Praise the Lord, my grip on reality has tightened as the years progressed, but I still screamed like a 13-year-old at a Jonas Brothers concert after I met one of my grown up heros, Susannah Constantine (of Trinny & Susannah fame) last Friday).

It’s ok, I’m shallow but not that shallow… I do have some other heroes, who are humanitarians, not fashionistas…

trinny & susannah

I have been in love with this duo and their witty, honest observations since a time when I thought bootleg jeans were cool. It gave me a Friday afternoon thrill when I had the chance to watch them transform the wardrobes of some unsuspecting audience members at a show last week, finally figure out which ‘shape’ I am (pretty much like Trinny, for anyone who cares) and drool over Trinny’s Azzedine Alaia studded belt…

Who are your heroes?
