Red Carpet Fashion Awards

2009 Emirates Melbourne Cup Day

Like Ascot in the UK the Melbourne Cup Day is more about hats and fashion than horse-racing – from a woman’s point of view of course.

Kate Waterhouse oozed sophistication wearing a Chloé bow-detailed asymmetric silk blouse, which she paired with a high waisted white skirt and nude heels.

Normally I really hate a necklace worn with an asymmetrical top, but I’m surprised that it doesn’t bother me here.

Her hat perfects this stunning look.

I believe Jennifer Hawkins is wearing a stunning head-piece, but unfortunately I can barely make it out from the artwork behind her.

Laura Dundovic was my second favourite going for a black and beige colour co-ordinated look.

Model Sophie Monk opted for a sexier leopard print look.

I guess models can write their own fashion rule books, but it doesn’t feel quite right at this event.

More stunning hats.

Sonia Kruger looks stunning, I’m so jealous of her toned legs.

I love the fuschia colour of her look and her hat which looks like something a chic air stewardess would wear in the 70s.

I didn’t like anything about Olivia Newton-John’s look.  I may have like it had she not gone overboard with the boots and the lace gloves.

Zara Phillips’ Thread Social dress is unflattering on her from every angle.

Her Philip Treacy hat is nice though.

Designer Leona Edmiston had some extra pieces of tulle left over from designing her hat, so she incorporated the left-overs into her dress.

Lara Bingle made sure all eyes were on her by wearing a large head-piece.

I’m sure it was mission accomplished, but every one was no doubt looking at her because of her deep plunging LBD than her hat.

Those of us outside Australia still don’t really know Lara, but the model is set to skate to international fame with news she will head to London in March for the UK series of “Torvill and Dean: Skating on Ice”.

Megan Gale’s black and white dress is so chic it hurts.

Loves it.

Jennifer Hawkins’ bold shoulder dress was covered with a lace overlay to complement her square lace head piece.

The X Factor is due to start on Saturday in the UK, and I can barely contain my excitement.

We’ll be watching what has been taped weeks in advance, so this gives the judges some time out before the drama of the live shows in the Autumn.

X Factor judge Dannii Minogue is back at home in Australia, and she was sitting front row at this show wearing strapless corseted Victoria Beckham Fall 2009 dress with an organza bodice overlay and sequin hip panel.

Danni wore her dress with black clutch and Christian Louboutin pigalle heels.

The dress looks good on Dannii, but it would’ve been better had she shortened it.

No matter what we say about Victoria’s style, it seems that celebs just can’t get enough of VB threads that the moment.

Victoria Beckham and Selita Ebanks have both already worn this dress.

Former Miss Universe, Jennifer Hawkins is currently the very pretty face of “Myer”.

She arrived on the red carpet wearing a plunging black dress, with a bow detail on the waist and crystal details on the shoulders.  Those details remind me of the Givenchy Spring 2009 collection.

Black peep-toes complete the look.

Lara Bingle was ‘glowing’ in a pale pink long sleeve Prada dress which has a the back cut-out.

Her hair was slight wild and messy and her make-up kept light.

YSL white strappy sandals complete the look.
