Could this be the most beautiful Melbourne Cup day crowd ever? With VIP racegoers including voluptuous Vanity Fair cover model Kate Upton, supermodel Coco Rocha and the vintage stylings of burlesque marquess Dita Von Teese I’d wager it’s a good bet. Lindy Klim’s risque (for the racetrack) Dolce & Gabbana outfit and gilded headpiece – Balenciaga, sigh – may be my favourite of the local looks. Take a looks at some of the most fashionable moments of the 2013 Melbourne Cup.
