Street Style Wrap Up: Emirates Melbourne Cup Day
The forecast may have been gloomy, but the street style certainly wasn't.
An iconic day in the Australian sporting calendar, Emirates Melbourne Cup Day is also a highly anticipated style extravaganza.
It’s the day when race-goers pull out all the stops, and this year proved no different, with show stopping outfits from both the ladies and gents.
This seasons hot ticket was block colour, the primary colours making their statement. Red was the colour of the day, a risky but bold choice that caught the attention of many an eye.
Now listen up gents,
“For the love of god get your suit tailored!”
Wise words from local fashion designer Oscar Calvo.
As hilarious as she is gorgeous, beauty blogger Gemma Watts addressed all the ladies out there with commitment issues,
“You make a commitment to your shoes at the start of the day. Everyone that takes their shoes off is a bad person. To their shoes.”
It’s the race that stops the nation, but here are the outfits that brought us to a halt:
