DONCASTER Day usually features a touch of red but yesterday at Royal Randwick it was all about burnt orange.Fashions on the Field host Renee Bargh, from Channel V, and her co-host Adam Williams were both dressed in the shade.”We didn’t mean to match. Alice McCall sent me a few dresses and I just liked the colour,” Bargh said. ”And I matched Adam and all the roses by coincidence.”Williams was in a Versace suit and custom orange shirt, tie and pocket handkerchief. ”Orange is an homage to autumn. There are no rules to racing fashion, just guidelines,” he told the crowd.Toby Osmond, Natalie Gauci and Lyndsey Rodrigues were on the judging panel for Fashions on the Field. Rodrigues, also in orange, wore a silk Harry Who design with a Neil Grigg hat.”I’ll take bribes,” she joked as the entrants for best hat and best dressed couple paraded on stage.Brittney McGolne, who entered with friend Blake Johnston in the couples’ category, took out the top prize. It was her second win of the season. Last week she won best dressed female at Derby Day.McGolne wore the signature Emirates ”slash of red” in a black Cue dress with red detailing. Her hat and clutch were in red, teamed with a black shrug. The hat had been made by her mother, milliner Carey McGolne, and was also part of her winning ensemble last week. Johnston wore a Zegna black suit with a trilby hat and red ribbon.McGolne, 20, said the competition was fierce. ”You see the same girls in every competition. I started at Hawkesbury when I was 15.”Winner of best millinery was Casey Hodges, in a hat made by Carey McGolne.Judge Gracie Otto, who spent the day racing around the track on official duties, loved the winner.”She looked amazing and had a great arse. I couldn’t take my eyes off her,” she said.Otto spent the day in the Emirates marquee with guests including actors Les Hill, Jessica Marais, Hugh Sheridan and Maria Venuti, TV presenters Sami Lukis and Peter Everett and model Ali Mutch.Sally Singleton, daughter of adman John Singleton, sported a colourful dress designed by Nina Maya and a Milano hat. She pranced around the Emirates marquee wearing the sash from the family-owned Patinack Farm winner, Once Were Wild, which took home the AJC Oaks. Her father was notably absent.”I wasn’t nervous because I’m still filled with the adrenalin of the race,” Sally Singleton said. ”Dad’s asleep but he woke up for the race and now he’s gone back to bed.”Kerri-Anne Kennerley looked striking in a bright pink Alex Perry dress and Neil Grigg hat.”I always wear Neil Grigg because he supported me for 20 years when I have had a job and when I haven’t,” Kennerley said. ”Designers always want to throw dresses at you when you have a show but when you don’t, they stop, but Neil has always been supportive.”Actress Sarah Wynter brought international star power to the Indian-themed marquee. She flew back to Sydney from New York on Thursday, travelling first-class.Wynter looked stunning in a black Collette Dinnigan dress and Nerida Winter hat, Louis Vuitton shoes and Mui Mui bag.Former Miss Universe Australia Laura Dundojvic was dressed in a colourful Charlie Brown number and Jane Lambert hat.
