The Spring Racing Carnival is already underway for 2010, and what better way to celebrate than looking back through the 1960s, 70s and 80s at some of the amazing outfits worn by fashionistas who have attended the racing events? Of course, the most famous dress was Jean Shrimpton’s risqué mini at the Melbourne Cup in 1965, however there are many interesting, beautiful, and daring creations to remember.
