It may be 'the race that stops the nation', but Melbourne Cup fashion is the real highlight with many Aussie stars out enjoying the day after the pandemic cut celebrations down drastically over the last two years.
There is a long list of rules when it comes to dressing for the Melbourne Cup, including things such as no cut-outs, rips or tears, thongs, sneakers or casual shoes, and no denim of any kind.
Delta Goodrem, who was slammed for her support of racing last month, wore a bright, floral two-piece Dolce & Gabanna outfit for the day. She added a black hat and lace gloves, along with black heels and a tiny red handbag.
Fans on Twitter wrote that they thought Delta looked "stunning" and "incredible".
Myer ambassador Tayla Damir posed with her AFL player husband Nathan Broad, with the former Love Island star wearing a bright yellow silk slip dress with a matching headband and black and yellow checked coat. Nathan kept things simple with a blue suit and tie.
Christian Wilkins, a VRC ambassador, opted for a silky green three-piece suit with a large red bow tie and a tiara. He added dark green platform heels to his ensemble and kept his long hair out in waves.
Green is historically "bad luck" at the Melbourne Cup, but he didn't seem fazed.
