Oaks Day

Oaks Day

There were many other stars joining Coco Rocha on the red carpet for Oaks Day held at Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne, Australia earlier today.

Whitey Port: The reality TV star wore a Cooper St custom-print peplum top and white skirt with a sexy slit, which she styled with a red Chanel bag, white ankle-strap sandals and an event-appropriate wide-brim white hat. Whitney collaborated with Australian label Cooper St to launch a bespoke line for the brand which was launched last month.

Jennifer Hawkins: The face of Myer opted for a very different headpiece, donning an AUS$800,000 Cerrone diamond crown headpiece with her lilac Manning Cartell one-shoulder frock with a pretty lace skirt and black velvet waistband styled with a Jimmy Choo black clutch and two-tone pumps.

Lauren Phillips: Fellow face of Myer Lauren Phillips opted for a sleek and sexy Yeojin Bae figure-hugging animal-print dress and a burnt-orange Melissa Jackson headpiece.

Kate Waterhouse In Peter Pilotto - Melbourne Cup Day

Kate Waterhouse attended Melbourne Cup Day in Australia on Tuesday.

Perhaps it was something in the water, but Coco Rocha wasn’t the only one to don Peter Pilotto for the day’s festivities. The Sun Herald journalist — who also happens to be a part of Australia’s racing royalty — also chose an optic-printed Peter Pilotto Fall 2013 dress, this one with cutout short sleeves and a fun cocktail-length hemline.

For me, this look got its one-two punch from the well-coordinated details: a sexy pair of Tom Ford shoes, a gold Charlotte Olympia ‘Box Office’ clutch, and a custom co-designed headpiece by Nerida Winter for Hardy Brothers Jewellery.

Kate Waterhouse In Balenciaga - Victoria Derby Day

Kate Waterhouse was very much at home attending Victoria Derby Day at Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne, Australia on Saturday afternoon as she’s part of Australia’s racing royalty; she’s the daughter of leading thoroughbred trainer Gai Waterhouse and the granddaughter of racing legend Tommy “TJ” Smith.

Unlike Lara Bingle, Kate managed to toe the line between being fashionable and event appropriate, wearing a black Balenciaga Fall 2013 peplum dress creating a petal-shape silhouette with a plastron front and halter neckline.

A sexy pair of wrap sandals, a white floral appliqué Alexander McQueen clutch, drop earrings, and a Nerida Winter and Hardy Brothers vintage diamond-beaded lace half veil completed her look.

Kate has always been quite fond of veils. Not always successfully worn, but on this occasion it added an alluring, chic finish to her look.

Lara Bingle In Dion Lee - Victoria Derby Day

Lara Bingle joined Naomi Campbell at the Victoria Derby Day at Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne, Australia on Saturday.

The socialite opted for all black, donning an overtly sexy look from Dion Lee’s Spring 2014 collection.

I’m sure many of you will agree that this hybrid wire long sleeve crop top with an open back and plunging neckline, styled with an asymmetrical skirt and unique headpiece, doesn’t exactly scream ‘day at the races’.

Those of you more familiar with her style won’t be surprised by this look as the terms ‘dress code’ and ‘event appropriate’ are never really taken into consideration by Lara.

Event inappropriate aside, I have to admit that I kinda like the look. It’s sexy, and she has the body to pull it off. Maybe her intention was to shake things up on Ladies Day.

Cate Blanchett In Roksanda Ilincic - 'Blue Jasmine' Sydney Premiere

Cate Blanchett arrived at the Hayden Cremorne Orpheum in Sydney, Australia this evening for the ‘Blue Jasmine’ premiere.

Sticking to the summery colour palette that has served her so well during this promo tour, the actress delights wearing a Roksanda Illincic short-sleeved dress in a two-tone coral hue.

The dress features the designer’s signature folded neckline which Cate decided not to overbear with accessories, keeping it sweet and simple with gold Christian Louboutin ‘Sylvette’ sandals and a dark-pink lip colour to prevent the colour of her dress from washing her out.

I love the simplicity of this look. She carries it so effortlessly and gracefully, as one would expect.

With Oscar buzz surrounding her performance in this movie, we hopefully have a whole awards season full of breathtaking looks from Cate ahead of her.

Jennifer Hawkins In Toni Maticevski - Australia's Next Top Model Season 8 Launch

Jennifer Hawkins was back to work two day after her honeymoon yesterday evening to launch Season 8 of Australia’s Next Top Model, which was held at Doltone House in Sydney.

The newlywed showed off her fresh tan, wearing an orange-and-black Toni Maticevski cocktail dress with an asymmetrical neckline.

I’m not crazy about the styling. The cuff works; however, the shoes are tres boring and the clutch doesn’t complement any part of her look.

While I love the dress, I have a feeling some of you will be put off by the orange dress and orange glow.

Am I right? Should she have opted for a neutral-coloured dress to showcase her tan?
