So go on – why not check your wardrobe and see what you can rustle up in order to get your ravishing races get-up sorted. Giddy up.
Trend #1: MODERN CHIC
As seen on: Samantha Harris
Why we love it: Think simplicity, bright colours, sharp cuts, and matte, matte, matte.
What you’ll need: Sharp black hues, or on-trend neon shades. This is the perfect occasion to pull out your geometric clutch, statement headpiece or those patent leather peep toes. Oh and remember to keep it simple, not over-the-top.
How to do your make-up: Stick to a statement make-up look. We’re thinking strong brows, smoky shadow and a perfectly flawless matte complexion just like Sam’s – with a hint of sculpting cheek colour.
How to do your hair: styled up-dos work best for this look. Think sky-high sleek ponytails, carefully crafted topknots and sheeny chignons. Hairspray and gel will be your best friends.

Trend #2: LADYLIKE
As seen on: Jesinta Campbell
Why we love it: It’s cute, it’s a chance to be feminine and work your gorgeously girly charm – oh and wear pearls! Yes pearls!
What you’ll need: Well, pearls. A dress with character (think pleats, gathering, embroidery and embellishment), plus a fluttery fascinator and lacey gloves. Grab frocks in colours like teal, antique pink and off-white to really embrace this trend with gusto.
How to do your make-up: Be sure to use shimmery eyeshadows that catch the light, as well as a pretty pink blush that will provide a natural flush. Keep your complexion dewy and your lipstick red and bold, bold, bold!
How to do your hair: natural waves and cutesy curls are the order of the day for this look. Pin one side of your hair back to provide the ultimate fascinator foundation. Otherwise, a side ponytail or a dishevelled bun at the nape of your neck will complement this look perfectly.
