Nadia is no stranger to the horse racing season and has served as a style ambassador for the Melbourne Racing Club on several occasions over the years.

Her return to the limelight comes a year after the influencer was forced to flee the limelight amid her image-shattering white powder scandal.

On September 2 last year, Nadia was filmed breaking Melbourne’s lockdown and snorting white powder off a $1.50 Kmart sign during an illegal gathering at a friend’s house.

Her business partner Ellie Pearson accidentally uploaded the images to social media, forcing Nadia to publicly apologize a day later.

At the time, private and public gatherings were not allowed in Melbourne under statewide Covid restrictions.

Nadia’s apology – including a call for forgiveness from health professionals – was followed by weeks of silence on social media.
