Australian celebrities in egg-inspired headwear and sweet wrapper style fabrics have blazed a trail of fashion failure at the second Melbourne cup of the Covid pandemic – but a select few hit all the right notes.

After last year’s unprecedented event which saw Flemington trackside stand empty for the first time in the race that stops a nation’s 161-year history, stars spared no expense as they returned to the course on Tuesday in the wake of Victoria’s sixth lockdown in 18 months.

But ongoing border restrictions forced many to celebrate interstate, with models and influencers uploading glamorous outfit photos from satellite events in Sydney and Brisbane.

Champion jockey Michelle Payne made a rare misstep in a monochrome turquoise ensemble which featured a futuristic icicle fascinator and a tiered halterneck dress reminiscent of a chocolate box wrapper.

Michelle looked angelic with her golden tan and elegant up do, but fell short with her garish colour theme and bizarre icicle inspired headpiece

The 36-year-old looked angelic with her golden tan and elegant up do, but fell short of the mark with her garish colour theme and bizarre accessories.

TV presenter Jessica Rowe was white hot in a simple body conscious slip dress that showed off her enviable figure, but her unusual choice of headwear did little to enhance the look.

The 51-year-old’s gargantuan chiffon hat designed to look like an egg dwarfed her tiny frame.

MasterChef Australia’s Melissa Leong also suffered a fashion fail when it came to her choice of accessories, with her plastic-looking wrap doing little to compliment her elaborate eye makeup or lime green stilettos.

A gamble paid off for Delta Goodrem who wowed in a unique mustard jumpsuit embellished with an enormous pink bow that grazed the ground.

The 36-year-old songstress looked radiant as she beamed beneath a fuchsia hat in the 30 degree summer sun.

Olivia Molly Rogers revealed her outfit in a bathroom mirror selfie, showing off a bejewelled red headband and lemon collared dress that hugged her model physique to perfection.

The 2017 Miss Universe Australia, 29, who recently revealed she’d quit alcohol, matched her makeup to her accessories with a smoky eye and a deep burgundy lip.

Candice Warner, who is celebrating the Lexus-sponsored Cup from Sydney this year, looked race day ready in a red one shoulder dress and matching wide brimmed hat.

Love Island star Tayla Damir also nailed the brief, stunning in a billowing backless maxi dress and sleek ponytail.
