The Hottest 2017 Melbourne Cup Looks

The race that stops the nation is over for another year, and the 2017 Melbourne Cup didn't disappoint with the fashion on the field. Flemington racecourse was full of celebs and punters rocking stunning dresses and headpieces, and although Rekindling was ultimate winner for the day, we think that it's all about these amazing looks!
 Jennifer Hawkins showed up in a beautiful Alex Perry dress. The contrast between dusty pink and black with a toned down makeup look made the former Miss Universe look effortlessly elegant.


As for Elyse Knowles, her headpiece by Kim Wiebenga was a show stopper. The stunning gold headpiece complemented her low-cut Cappellazzo Couture dress. A Tom Ford clutch and gold pointy heels really added some sophistication to the outfit.

Georgia Love made us fall in love with her Bronx and Banco custom-made mini dress. The light blue floral design on the dress looked stunning next to Lee Elliott who rocked a dark navy suit. She paired her outfit with a headpiece by Lady of Leisure, a red Yves Saint Lauren clutch for a pop of colour, and classic black pumps.


Rozalia Russian made an entrance in a green laced dress by Nicola Finetti. She emphasised her gorgeous figure with the ruffle details which lined her waist. A simple ponytail hairstyle made the neckline and shoulders stand out, and to top it off, she paired the dress with Harlequin Market statement earrings.
