Jen Hawkins and Megan Gale lead floral trend at Oaks Day

Australia’s top fashionistas stepped out for ladies’ day at Flemington Racecourse.

This year, florals, shades of pink and pastels were certainly the trends of the day as fashion’s leading ladies took to the Birdcage.

Year after year, all eyes have been on the ever-so-fashionable Jen Hawkins as the former face of Myer.

However, after 12-years in the role, today’s Oaks day marked her last official appearance as an ambassador for the retail store.

Dressing for the occasion – which included her own victory lap around Flemington’s racecourse – Jen dazzled in a brightly coloured floral dress by Alex Perry with an elegant diamond encrusted hair clip.

For the model, it was almost fitting for her last day to line up with Oaks day, as she tells Yahoo Lifestyle, “I love Spring racing season for the excuse to dress up and wear amazing designs!”

“My race day tips are always to wear something you are comfortable in and stay hydrated throughout the day.”

However speaking to The Daily Telegraph on the day, the 34-year-old said that all her goodbyes have been said and “it’s time to move on”.

Jennifer, who is married to Jake Wall, has a lengthy list of companies under her belt, including her JBronze tanning, her own range of Tequila, called Sesión, as well as numerous contracts with other brands like Colgate – so it certainly won’t be the last we see of her.

Most recently the model teamed up with Mount Franklin to launch a new range of flavoured spring water including Pineapple & Mint, Lemon & Lime and Strawberry.

Speaking to Yahoo Lifestyle, she recalls her decision to work with the brand came from her love of keeping healthy and finding time to escape from her busy day-to-day work.

“I have worked with Mount Franklin for many years now.  I am an advocate for healthy living and having natural and sugar-free options is an important part of achieving that lifestyle,” she says.

“I encourage all Aussies to pause their busy lives to take a moment to escape and hydrate every day.”
