What a special celebration it was for the Emirates Melbourne Cup 2017. We welcomed the heart of the Australian community to the new St. Regis Al Habtoor Polo Resort & Club. It was the perfect venue to celebrate the breakfast - easy to reach, it's a beautiful hotel with excellent service and it is surrounded by perfectly lush and manicured polo fields.

Thank you to all our guests on the day. Such a celebration of fashion from the ladies and men. Our judges, including Katie Fielder, Broadcaster, Christina Lopez from Al Tayer Beauty and Charlotte Marston from Reiss, had a tough job with so many fantastic outfits. Congratulations to Sharon Parsons for winning the Best Dressed Lady and to Mustafah Hamwi for winning the Best Dressed Male. Both walked away with a fantastic prize - a Reiss styling experience including an outfit and accessories, so their style and glamour is set to continue.Thank you also to the Reiss team for the wonderful displays, dressing our MC's so beautifully and the discount vouchers. Don't forget you have until 31 December to visit a store - perfect timing for Christmas shopping!

Best Hat went to Chelsea van der Spek. Thank you to Dhamani for their amazing prize of a topaz & diamond necklace as well as 'dressing' our MC's and Katie Fielder. They all looked spectacular in your diamonds.

Some of the highlights of the day:

- Our team of MC's this year included Laura King from Dubai Racing alongside Harry & Pricey from Dubai92. They did an excellent job throughout the day. Laura shared her expertise on the racing and Harry & Pricey gave that special Aussie touch to the morning. So we were as close to Flemington as we could be from the desert!

- The ProTeam ME make-up stations were busy from the first. The team from Bloomingdales Beauty were in demand polishing up the ladies making sure they looked ready for the day, in spite of the early start. This team of artists are permanently based in Bloomingdales Dubai Mall and are there to help you with any of your make-up needs. Here is the link to Pricey from Dubai92 getting her make-up done before the event. A beautiful transformation (and a beautiful model).

- The Aveda hair stylists who worked hard all morning to make sure that the elastic bands were hidden and everyone's hair looked polished.

- Our Melbourne Cup Raffle: it was a fantastic selection of prizes this year. Everything from a 3-night holiday at the Ananatara in Sri Lanka thanks to Emirates Holidays, to yoga sessions with Inspire and Opening Night tickets to Evita. Thank you to all our partners and congratulations to all the lucky winners

- We loved the exhibition Polo Match that took place throughout the morning. It really connected the event to the heart of the Melbourne Cup. Thank you to the Al Habtoor Polo Club for cor-ordinating it.
