Kate Waterhouse In Gucci – Melbourne Cup

There was yet another ridiculous hat on the red carpet at the Melbourne Cup held at Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne, Australia earlier today.

Kate Waterhouse’s beautiful face was totally obscured by her lilac veil with a ribbon accent.

On the plus side the veil matched her Gucci Resort 2013 shift dress which had an ornate floral necklace and tonal buttons going down the side.

The fashion editor of The Sun-Herald spent so much time and effort on her dress and hat, that she forgot to pay close attention to her shoes which pale in comparison with the rest of the look.

Once again she fails to impress on her playground.

    This dress would’ve been perfect on Michelle Williams

    I dislike the veil and hate the choice of black shoes. (It’s springtime Down Under, right?)
    Her styling has ruined a cute dress.

    No to the ridiculous hat and the shoes, but I love the dress, it’s so gorgeous!

    I can’t fathom why she picked black footwear as the best choice with little lilac dress in summer.

    Cute dress, will even give the veil a pass because it matches so perfectly…but WHAT was she thinking with those shoes? She’s supposed to know fashion, or something!

    That’s a hat? I’m sorry but I thought it was a mosquito’s net.

    The hat is silly.

    It’s not fair to call her fashion editor. She is a fashion clown

    I love the dresses from this collection, but I don’t think that anyone has doen them justice at all yet.
    The shoes and veil are competeing with the dress and eachother.
    Also, the dress is availalbe from the Neiman Marcus website :)

    Have you seen her Derby Day outfit FC? It’s much better than this. What is going on with that veil…

    Sue me…but I might just love this. People that attend derbies go all wacko from the neck up anyway!

    I just wish she had worn different colored shoes.

    She looks like a lunch lady when that netted fascinator.
