Derby Day is traditionally a black and white day, lets take a look at the hits and misses….
Melissa Hoyer with Eliza Doolittle, oops I mean Nicole Kidman. Nicole wears L’Wren Scott and a Stephen Jones hat. Melissa Hoyer wears Daniel Avakian bespoke cape and dress and Hatmaker hat. Sorry Nicole but it borders on costume a little too much. Nicole Kidman is a special guest in the Swisse marquee.

Jennifer Hawkins looking lovely in a Manning Cartell dress and Melissa Jackson headwear. Much improved from her Derby Day look last year.
Also in the pic above the ahhhmazing Em Rusciano looks fabulous, totally rocking a Tuxedo. Love it!!
I never thought I would say this but Lara Bingle wins my best dressed award. I love the 2 piece white leather suit (by Dion Lee) and that black wide brimmed hat (by The Hatmaker) is perfect. The perfect mix of sexy yet elegant. Go Lara!
Unfortunately the same can’t be said about poor Sophie Monk (above). It looks like she is wearing black leather or fabric boots under that white dress? OMG! #FAIL. And Daniele Spencer’s (above) dress lacks any wow factor. That floral belt and little bag remind me of Barbie.
Sharni Vinson’s print dress shows some promise but that hat cheapens her look. Maybe she can get Roberto Cavalli to lend her something next year. Nicely accessorised with a Lavazza coffee cup.
