Lulu is no stranger to racing fashion, having been a Fashions in the Field judge at competitions around the country for several years now. She has a degree in costume design and is a professional stylist, commencing her career at MTV in Australia. Since then, she’s struck out on her own and has built her business to the point that she’s now one of New Zealand’s busiest stylists with notable clients such as NZ Woman’s Day and Australian Women’s Weekly. She’s also the talent behind some of New Zealand’s most well-known celebrities ‘looks’ as well as being the fashion eyes for Ellerslie’s famous "SkyWalk” event back in 2019.

With her husband heading up New Zealand Bloodstock, Justine is a regular attendee at the races both here in New Zealand as well as abroad and serves up immaculate looks every time. She has been a regular competitor in Fashions in the Field competitions in the past and now with her own styling business, she's turning her hand to judging this season.
