Emirates Melbourne Cup Highlights
The sun was shining on Flemington Racecourse today for Melbourne's biggest racing, fashion, and social event of the year, the Emirates Melbourne Cup.
This year was certainly one to be remembered - with local and international celebs including David Guetta, Millie Mackintosh, Melissa Rivers, Didier Cohen, Joel McHale and Lady Kitty Spencer all to be found in the Birdcage.
The fashion stakes were high, bright ensembles and boaters were the trend (we were LOVING Jen Hawkins's fluoro Maticevski number!) and the ladies of the Myer Fashions on the Field competition didn't disappoint, with the final looming on Crown Oaks day.
Taking out the naming race was Prince of Penzance, and jockey Michelle Payne who is the first female jockey to ever win the Emirates Melbourne Cup.
Crown Oaks and Emirates Stakes Day tickets are still available for purchase from Flinders Street, Southern Cross and North Melbourne stations, or jump the queue and buy online from Ticketek on your mobile!
