The celebrity guests arrived in droves to the 2013 BMW Caulfield Cup in Caulfield, Melbourne yesterday.

Here's something different from David Jones! The retail giant today launched a youthful new campaign that marks an edgy and interactive e-retail direction — and we like it! David Jones today announced the launch of its new multi-platform campaign titled "#WeAre", showcasing its stable of youthful and fresh labels (think Bec & Bridge, Shakuhachi, Cameo, Finders Keepers, Staple the Label, Maurie & Eve, Friend Of Mine and MinkPink). To kick off the campaign, DJs shared a fully interactive and shoppable video, featuring youth ambassador Montana Cox. And if you're wondering why the new direction, David Jones CEO Paul Zahra explained the campaign was launched after identifying "the Youth Fashion market as a true opportunity for David Jones."

At only 19, Montana Cox is best known as being the winner of the last series of Australia's Next Top Model Cycle 7, but is quickly rising to the top. Joining David Jones as their youth ambassador, as well as walking for the likes of Chanel and landing a Lanvin eyewear campaign, there's no wonder she's on our radar. With her beautiful brown locks, enviable brows, flawless skin and button nose, we sat down to ask Montana about her favourite beauty products. Curious?
Lifestyles of the rich and stylish, hey? We weren't sure who we were more envious of this week — Delta Goodrem and Renee Bargh as they suntanned their way around the coast of Mexico together, Laura Dundovic as she sipped on coconuts in Thailand, Olivia Palermo as she and her very handsome boyfriend Johannes snapped away on their travels . . . The list goes on! Lucky for us, we got to see it all thanks to the stars' generous habit of sharing all things pretty on Instagram. Speaking of pretty, this week's biggest "wow" came courtesy of Jesinta Campbell, who shared an incredible behind-the-scenes look at her new Wonderbra ad. That girl is looking good!

Last night, POPSUGAR Australia spent some fun times backstage at the David Jones Spring Summer Fashion Launch. We interviewed everyone from Jessica Gomes to Montana Cox and those beautiful Stenmark brothers; to expert makeup artists and hair gurus. Behind the curtain, there was a flurry of front row celebrities, makeup, shoes, celebrities, beautiful bodies and even more beautiful clothes, and we emerged with some pretty cool behind-the-scenes snaps. Let's go!
We've had a week filled with colour and all things Summer, thanks to a few incredible launches, some delicious treats and a concert that has to be seen to be believed.

Last night's David Jones Spring Summer Fashion Launch was the perfect mix of classic '60s inspired hair and feline makeup. It was Jessica Gomes' first show as the official face of the department store giant, and the exotic beauty was joined by Australia's Next Top Model winner turned international runway star, Montana Cox, and local faces like Louise Van Der Vorst and Samantha Harris. The runway looks were held up by fine-tuned skin and gold pigment eyes and slanted false lashes. Shu Uemura's international artistic director, Mr. Kakuyasu Uchiide called the two makeup looks "poolside chic", and we tend to agree. Click through to see Jessica, Montana and the other catwalk beauties rocking his handiwork in our round-up of the runway.
Jessica Gomes made her big debut as the new face of David Jones at the department store’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection launch last night. The Perth-born beauty, who took over from Miranda Kerr in March, modelled an array of looks from David Jones’ stable of designers in front of celebrity guests, fashion insiders and media. There was only one small misstep on the runway, when Jessica’s heel got caught in a long, flowing Camilla Franks kaftan, but the designer herself ran up to get her untangled, and they shared a cute moment on the catwalk.
David Jones’ iconic Elizabeth Street Sydney store was filled with Australian celebrities including Lara Bingle, Megan Gale, Elizabeth Debicki, Isabelle Cornish, Charlotte Dawson and Alex Perry, who showed off their cheeky friendship on the press line. Mothers-to-be Rachael Finch and Terry Biviano also made stylish arrivals alongside their respective husbands Michael Miziner and Anthony Minichiello. After the show, guests stayed around for drinks and to catch up with industry friends.
Tonight in Sydney, David Jones played host at its highly coveted Spring Summer Fashion Launch. The hair and makeup looks channelled poolside chic with skin and styles that'll have you pining for balmy nights by the water. Shu Uemura's international artistic director, Mr. Kakuyasu Uchiide, worked with a very chic colour palette for the eyes and lips but says the texture of the skin is key to nailing the look at home. "The base makeup is about a natural glow and healthy skin," he says. "Shu Uemura has an important philosophy and that's beautiful makeup starts with beautiful skin."
The team prepped all the models' skin with the brand's signature Cleansing Beauty Oil, then lotion and essence. He also told us the less foundation you use after, the better. One eye makeup was made up of two eyeliners — gold and black — followed by Rouge Unlimited Supreme Matte in BG930 on the lips.
The hair for this evening was taken care of by Aveda. The highlight had to be the exaggerated French roll, as pictured here on model Montana Cox. It's a modern take on a '60s inspired classic and for at-home styling, Aveda recommends Phomollient Styling Foam for those with super soft hair to add texture before styling. The interior of the hair was crimped to create a support frame and to stop the look from dropping. Use small crimpers 1cm from the roots.
