Nadia Fairfax is all legs as she channels 60s icon Jean Shrimpton in a shift dress at Derby Day

Sixties style! Socialite and influencer Nadia Fairfax is all leggy as she channels 60s icon Jean Shrimpton in a shift dress and pillbox hat at Derby Day

Nadia Fairfax channeled fashion icon Jean Shrimpton at Penfolds Victoria Derby Day 2022 on Saturday.

The 33-year-old socialite and influencer donned a black mini dress that resembled the famous 60s icon’s white she wore on Derby Day in 1965.

Key adjustments modernized the outfit, but there’s no doubt Nadia was inspired by the former model, who left the fashion industry to run the Abbey Hotel in Penzance in her early 30s.

Nadia opted for a dress that features a shapeless tunic over a matching skirt, keeping the hemline as shockingly high as its predecessor.

Jean had caused controversy with her own Derby Day outfit when she stepped out with a hemline that sat 4 inches above her knees, while Nadia’s was miles above, hitting her halfway -thigh.

A nod to the model’s attire could also be seen in the gold button at the top of Nadia’s sleeveless top, a tribute to the large pin that sat at the collar of Jean’s dress.

Similar to the jeans, Nadia also opted for a modest pointed heel – black instead of white – with additional black ties around her ankles to modernize the look.

The 1965 Derby Day crowd were stunned by Jean’s blatant bending of the rules as she appeared two hours late without gloves, stockings or a hat as expected.

Rather than the simple watch Jean had accessorized her look with, Nadia tied gold bracelets around her wrists and slipped rings on her fingers to match her gold button.

Her perfectly styled golden bob curled beautifully under her chin as she donned a simple yet stylish wingtip eyeliner to tie the 60s-inspired outfit together.

By today’s standards, Jean’s dress would be considered a modest length, and even the length of Nadia’s would raise no eyebrows.

However, during the 1960s in conservative Australia, the English model and actress was tragically mocked and later bullied in the local press for her short dress.

The following year, she was pressured by her sponsors to don something more conservative in accordance with the dress code.

She attended in a three-piece gray suit with a straw hat, beige gloves and stockings, and a brown handbag, telling reporters at the time, “I think you should dress to please yourself.” I feel that Melbourne is not ready for me yet. It seems to be years behind London.
