From egg-inspired hats to chocolate-wrapped dresses: The WORST dressed celebrities at the 2021 Melbourne Cup – and the brilliant stars who got it right

  • Australian celebrities put on dubious ensembles at Covid Pandemic’s second Melbourne Cup
  • Stars swarmed Flemington on Tuesday after the track was empty last year for the first time in history
  • Master jockey Michelle Payne made a rare mistake in a turquoise mini-dress in several levels that looks like a cute wrap

Australian celebrities in egg-inspired headdresses and cute wrapping materials have revealed a trail of fashion flaws at the Covid pandemic’s second Melbourne Cup – but a select few hit all the right notes.

After last year’s unprecedented event, in which Flemington’s track was empty for the first time in the race, stopping a nation’s 161-year history, the stars spared no expense when they returned to the track on Tuesday in the wake of Victoria’s sixth lockdown in 18 months.

But ongoing border restrictions forced many to celebrate the interstate, with models and influencers uploading glamorous outfit photos from satellite events in Sydney and Brisbane.

Master jockey Michelle Payne made a rare mistake in a monochrome turquoise ensemble, which featured a futuristic icicle fascinator and a halterneck dress reminiscent of a chocolate box.

MasterChef Australia’s Melissa Leong also suffered from a fashion flaw when it came to her choice of accessories, with her plastic-like wrapping not complimenting her elaborate eye makeup or lime green stilettos.
