Kate Waterhouse is part of Australia’s racing royalty, as she’s the daughter of leading thoroughbred trainer Gai Waterhouse and granddaughter of racing legend Tommy “TJ” Smith, so at the Caulfield Cup Day at Caulfield Racecourse in Melbourne, Australia on Saturday Kate would’ve been in her element.

She is also the fashion editor of The Sun-Herald, so I’m a little surprised she hadn’t done her homework and discovered that this Burberry Prorsum Fall 2012 look has been done to death.

Emma Stone was the first to get her hands on this mustard and blue striped top with an aqua beaded neckline, followed by Giorgia Surina.

Nieves Alvarez wore the same top with a similar skirt on her Solo Moda show and Yoon Eun Hye wore the satin skirt back in August.

Rerun overload aside, she totally over accessorized her look.

The sandals and the Burberry clutch are OK, but the brown suede bow accented belt and leather studded headband were two steps too far.

This whole look needed a rethink.
