Tonight on The Edit, we bring you a wrap up of the 2015 Spring Racing Carnival - with an emphasis on the hottest looks from Caulfield to Flemington, and the #onpoint marquees that will be shaping the style of the upcoming event season.

This year, the stakes were high in the dress department, with crisp whites and bold colours  So hold onto your horses, and let your #fashionenvy grow with our favourite looks from the carnival.

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA - NOVEMBER 03:  Rachael Finch poses at the Myer Marquee on Melbourne Cup Day at Flemington Racecourse on November 3, 2015 in Melbourne, Australia.  (Photo by Scott Barbour/Getty Images)Myer Ambassador and former Miss Universe Rachael Finch looked stunning in this colourful By Johnny dress, which she teamed up with Natalie Bikicki millinery and Tony Bianco shoes.

Day AshAshley Hart stunned at Derby Day with this beautiful monochrome Dolce + Gabanna look! Those shoes are definitely on the LENZO wishlist too - #LOVE!!

18.-Rozalia-RussianRozalia Russian's Thurley dress was the #coolest shad of blue, and we are particularly loving her shoes that she designed herself! How cool?!

33.-Steph-Claire-SmithThis simple, yet chic, lace dress from White Suede looked amazing on Steph Claire Smith at Derby Day - if only we had her pins!

Jesinta-Campbell-Dion-Lee-dress-Stuart-Weitzman-shoes_Jessinta Campbell also brought her fashion a-game to the Caulfield Cup, with this stunning Dion Lee dress.

Vydia-Rishie-Asilio-dress-Eternal-Headonist-millinery-Carrano-heelsProbably our favourite look of the whole carnival would go to the stunning Vydia Rishie at the Caulfield Cup in this showstopper of a gown from Asilo. We are hoping this dress restocks ASAP because we are #OBSESSED!

And it wasn't just about what people were wearing - well, not completely - and talk also generated about the marquee concepts + styling. These ones were some of our favourites:


Bold Colours? Check. Mixed Metals? Check. Hanging flowers from roof? Check. This year's Myer Marquee was a LENZO dream - sucks that our invite was lost in the mail hey?! We can still admire the Gloss Creative's work from afar though! myer-marquee-10 (1)myer-marquee-12 myer-marquee-6DAVID JONES

Think mixed textures and a mass of beautiful blooms in shades of pink. David Jones at Caulfield, styled by the Dot Dot Dash team, was truly the epitome of luxe.

Okay, LENZO aren't really into cars and don't understand one thing about them - but the Lexus Marquee created by Mimm Design stunned with it's nest like branches and cool coloured interior. Also, cheese burger spring rolls were on the menu. Do we need to say more?
