Kate Waterhouse was out on the circuit again today for the VRC Oaks Club Luncheon held at the Crown Palladium in Melbourne, Australia, earlier today.

The fashion editor wore an Ellery Resort 2012 dress on this occasion.

You’d be forgiven if you thought this oxblood high-neck dress with oversized sleeves was by Lanvin.

I think I would have to question Kate’s credentials once again; I mean, who would wear a dress with such voluminous shoulders with their hair down?

Surely a tight bun or even a ponytail was required with this look.

Jumping on the floral garland headpiece trend which has surprisingly taken off in the last two days, I have to say her choice of headwear, once again, looks ridiculous.

What should be coming naturally for a fashion editor is feeling forced and coming across like she’s trying too hard, à la Lara Bingle, which is a huge disappointment considering she is known for having impeccable style.

Black Ferragamo lace-up sandals completed her look.

You can buy Kate’s Ferragamo sandals from Luisa via Roma and Bloomingdale’s.
