Kate Waterhouse In Ellery – VRC Oaks Club Luncheon

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.

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.

Delta Goodrem In Christian Dior – Melbourne Cup

Delta Goodrem also attended the Melbourne Cup at Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne, Australia earlier today joining Ashley Madekwe.

The Australian singer wore a Christian Dior Fall 2012 dress.

Her long-sleeve raspberry-pink dress with brocade bodice and tulle pleated, layered skirt was accented with a satin waistband.

I’m extremely bothered by the floral Kerrie Stanley headband, as it doesn’t really complement her dress. It looks quite ridiculous in fact.

At first I was also bothered by her nude ballet flats until I realized that they were a necessity following a leg injury.

You may remember that Krysten Ritter wore this same dress back in September.

Kate Waterhouse In Burberry Prorsum – Caulfield Cup Day

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.

Lara Bingle In Camilla and Marc – Caulfield Cup Day

Lara Bingle attended the Caulfield Cup Day at Caulfield Racecourse Saturday in Melbourne, Australia.

I was delighted to see the socialite finally wearing something that doesn’t look like she was trying too hard, wearing a Camilla and Marc black jumpsuit with gold button detailing.

That was until I saw the ear accessory.

No doubt inspired by the styling from the Rodarte Spring 2013 presentation, Lara added a diamante ear cuff to her look instead of a more traditional oversized hat for the occasion.

Do you see this ear accessory trend taking off?
