Melbourne Cup Celebrations



Melbourne Cup has been and gone and the events certainly left an impression. The once a year event that is always marked on the calendars of women, and men everywhere, was yet another success.

How did we spend it you ask? For the second year in a row, Servilles got involved in the Melbourne Cup Long Lunch hosted at Auckland’s Harbourside Bar and Grill by Mike Puru and what a day it was down on the waterfront!


It is only fitting that the once year event that causes a stir in the fashion world to put on your best dress and knockout accessories from shoes to head accessories was accompanied with a fashion runway for guests to enjoy and experience new season looks. The runway was curated by Myken Stewart and sported the latest looks from Tanya Carlson, Hailwood and Zambesi.


One of our star Stylists, Sid Bahree from Servilles Newmarket, lead the hair of the show, creating hair looks to compliment each of the models individual fashion looks. We couldn’t agree more with Fashionz who described Sid as creating “elegant looks that perfectly suited the designer collections”.

Makeup was lead by the ever so talented Kiekie Stanners, Senior MAC Makeup Artist, who designed beautiful and elegant fresh faced glows for the models, with just the right amount of glam for the occasion.

We loved being apart of the event and can’t wait for Melbourne cup again next year!


With many festivities and end of year parties arising, the cup is the perfect opening of the season to set the tone of the fashion trends to come. So take inspiration from the hair, makeup and clothing looks above to plan your looks for up coming events.


The above hair looks can be re-created and customised to your needs with styling from our Ponsonby, Newmarket and Takapuna salons.
