Melbourne Cup is undoubtedly the race that stops the nation. However, as much as it is a race of Thoroughbred horses, it is also a race of fashion.
While the weather at this year’s cup wasn’t that pleasant, it didn’t stop the racegoers from expressing themselves through the clothes. A-listers in the Birdcage stayed with the classic and sophisticated look, but the non-celebs were more flamboyant with their choice of colours and millineries.

If you think that the looks of those celebrities too safe, the non-celebs are the opposite. Here are some of the most exuberant and colourful ensembles in the field:
