The 2017 Melbourne Cup has officially kicked off, and with it, plenty of celebrities donning the the very best in spring racing style. This year’s international guests include model-of-the-moment Paris Jackson and supermodel Lara Stone, while racing regulars Jennifer Hawkins, Jodi Anasta and Jesinta Franklin are also in attendance.
Unlike Derby Day, which follows a strict black-and-white dress code, Melbourne Cup is the event which sees the most sartorial experimentation. Think bold colours, sculptural silhouettes and, of course, dramatic headpieces. Given the attendees often opt for Australian designers, it’s also a celebration of local fashion talent.
We’re keeping track of all the behind-the-scenes action from the chicest marquees, courtesy of Jennifer Hawkins, on our Instagram stories, but for all the best celebrity looks from the day you need look no further than here, where we’re rounding up the best A-list style.
