Even though the race that stops the nation doesn’t start until 3:00 p.m., everyone’s already getting into the spirit, the fashion, and presumably the champagne, over at the Myer marquee for today’s Melbourne Cup.
Myer looks like it’s continuing to “find wonderful” without its ambassador Jennifer Hawkins, making way for Laura Dundovic, Kate Peck, and Lauren Phillips to shine. Kate opted for a green chest-baring Yeojin Bae flippy dress, with black two-strap heels and a centred headpiece, breaking up the coral-coloured overflow that both Laura and Lauren brought to the Marquee.
Meanwhile Maddy King was busy being amazing in neutral tones, alongside her stud muffin of a partner, Kris Smith. Maddy donned a Mira Mandic cream dress with a beautifully embroidered bodice and split-front skirt. We love her triple-strap pointed-toe heels and cute cat-eared fascinator, showing us you don’t need to dress like a rainbow to stand out for Melbourne Cup.
DJ Leah Simmons looked angelic in a loose-fitting Ellery piece complete with Amber Sceats jewels.
Bridget Hall rocked a soft-pink high-neck mini dress with cutesy frills, while sister, Tiffany, opted for a dark drape-detail dress with a statement wide-brimmed feathery fascinator.
