With the spring racing carnival upon us what better time than to explore the world of fashionable head gear incorporating fresh flowers? Frida Kahlo was a front runner in this department with her simple yet effective use of flowers in her hair to achieve maximum wow factor.
Take a ‘leaf’ (or flower) out of these design ideas below and make a splash at the races this season…
Carnations, hydrangea, pepper berry, roses…pretty enough to eat it!
Stand out from the crowd with these avant-garde style statement pieces. Fluffy chrysanthemums, gerbera daisies, roses and orchids… Rich, jewel like colours, veils and bold make up make these absolute race day show stoppers!
Okay, the mask may be a little over the top for race day, but the exquisite incorporation of orchid blooms onto this headpiece is a standout. As are the blown roses in this ensemble designed by Philip Treacy for McQueen.
Braid and loop your hair up off your face and rock those flowers with attitude. Make it bold from the blooms to the jewellery, the make up and clothing.
Go green using succulents, twigs, roses, berries and interesting foliage…
A dome of babies breath? I think Audrey Hepburn might have approved of this one.
These floral headpieces are pure works of art. Collaborate with Flowers for Everyone and your favourite milliner to create something that will turn heads and attract butterflies (okay, and maybe bees) this Spring Racing Carnival.
