The competition then moved to South Australia, where Kimmi Varcoe claimed victory at Murray Bridge Racecourse wearing a blue Lela Rose dress adorned with speciality pleats designed by Di McLaughlin, Helen Mary Millinery, Senso shoes and a Saint Laurent bag.
A short jump across the Bass Strait saw Tasmanian state winner Shih (Cynthia) Ting Hawkins succeed at Elwick Racecourse wearing a vintage black and gold dress, Glamour shoes and self-made gold millinery coupled with accessories by Jag and Colette Hayman.
Kate Reynolds claimed victory at Ascot Racecourse in Western Australia. She wore a pale pink dress by Roksanda, Jennifer Chamandi shoes, Chloe accessories and self-made millinery.
And the final state competition was held in Queensland where Carle Rutledge succeded at Doomben Racecourse wearing a Roksanda dress, MNG shoes, self-made millinery, Mimco jewellery and a handbag from Bag Queen.
