Maybe they're just curious about the "exceptional event".

Who the hell wears stilettos and a micro-mini-dress to a fair?? (Or something resembling a fair, anyway.)

Actually, it's the Melbourne Cup as far as I can tell - or at least a big horse racing event. Fashion is the most important part of the day, thus the hats and shoes and dresses. It's more unusual to see people in less racy attire, thus these two ladies are really the ones doing something unusual.

*nodnod* Interestingly enough my comment wasn't that they were all in black or a comment on the mini dress, it was "how could she contemplate taking such an unflattering/unfashionable bag to Melbourne Cup?" (the black leather one, front right) I mean, I know that need to dress a certain way, but the Melbourne Cup is mostly about the fashion, and do their beliefs stretch to their hand bags as well?

Petty of me, I know.

This for sure, but I don't think it's the Melbourne Cup. Right behind the two ladies in black you will see the trunk of a date palm, and while I've never been there in person, I'm pretty sure Flemington Racecourse (in Melbourne) doesn't have any date palms.

In fact, I think (but can't offer much evidence; there are few details in the picture) that it's the Nad al Sheba Racecourse in Dubai (where I have been, hence my suspicion).

Which would make the maiden in white rather less dressed than the average (although granted, still not shockingly so). Witness, for example, the Levantine-appearing woman in brown at the right edge of the picture.

Someone who knows she's going to get free drinks.

I like the curls & swirls of her dress and hair-feathers next to the white swirls on the sign, contrasted with the red and white picket fence's straight lines.

Ah, but is it more liberating to have to spend all day at the races in 3 inch heels or to have to cover your hair...

I can see the TOES of those women in the burkhas. Damned harlots!

Those are not really like the Burqa I am aware of... more like veils and full length dress... kind of like the stuff Puritans used to wear, except Puritans used to have their heads exposed (all but the top) and Puritan women were the ones that started the Equal Rights for Women movement in the US.

Those are definitely not burqas. Closer to jilbabs.

Honestly, they're probably just admiring her dress--something that they could and would wear in private, but not in public. Women who wear hijabs see just as much Western media as anyone else, so to think they'd be shocked or jealous is pretty naive.

Yeah, that's pretty much what I was thinking. It looked like they were admiring her fancy pretties.
