Fashions On The Field: Melbourne Cup

The race that stops a nation. For those of you BWA readers that don’t live in Australia, the day of the Melbourne Cup each year, means millions of dollars in lost productivity as Australians nation wide stop to have a punt on their favourite horse.

Second to that, the raceday fashion is one of the more enjoyable pastimes to spy celebrities, crazy hats and outrageous fashion choices on the one day of the year that it seems totally legitimate.

Check out the gallery below including the Fashions On The Field winners and celebrities which include Mischa Barton (Coop eat your heart out!), Jennifer Hawkins and Sophie Monk.
