The Melbourne Cup kicked off in fine form on Tuesday as Australia’s hottest celebrities descended on Flemington Racecourse to watch the race that stops the nation. 

Richard Wilkins’ son Christian looked incredibly stylish in a mint green satin Gucci suit worth around $8,000, adding a feminine touch by placing a glittering tiara on his head.

MasterChef Australia star Melissa Leong followed suit in a pale pink tuxedo teamed with a white waistcoat.

Meanwhile, Tayla Damir brightened up the dreary Melbourne Day in a bright yellow satin cowl-neck dress worn underneath a sensible Herringbone coat. 

She arrived on the arm of her new husband, AFL star Nathan Broad, who looked dashing in a checked suit.    

The former Love Island star accessorised her look with a matching bright yellow headband, gold strappy sandals and clutched a black leather Chloe handbag.

This year’s Melbourne Cup entertainment features an all-Australian line up including Australian indie pop powerhouse Sheppard and Men at Work’s Colin Hay, who will perform Down Under. 

Cody Simpson also has the honour of performing the National Anthem. 

‘It’s an immense honour,’ the 25-year-old told Daily Mail Australia on Monday. ‘It’s the first time I’ve ever done it, I couldn’t be asked to do something more prestigious.’

The singer-turned-swimmer also gave an updated on his recording career – and what the future may hold.

‘Music’s still a massive part of my life and I train full time, but everybody needs something to help balance them out, and music for me is just that,’ he explained.

‘I still play guitar pretty much every single day to relax, and I certainly will be jumping around back to music once I’m done with the pool.’

‘It’s an immense honour,’ Cody told Daily Mail Australia on Monday. ‘It’s the first time I’ve ever done it, I couldn’t be asked to do something more prestigious’

 ‘It’s definitely been a couple years since I’ve performed in front of this many people. I’m a little nervous, but you’re always nervous before doing something great.’

Cody last visited Flemington in 2015.

VRC Chairman Neil Wilson said Simpson was an inspired choice.

‘Cody is an inspiring young Australian who shows us that when you work hard and put your mind to something, anything is possible and you can achieve your dreams.’

While punters in Melbourne woke up to glorious weather this morning, it isn’t expected to stay this way all day – with a rain bomb expected to hit the track at some stage as well as freezing temperatures.

The Bureau of Meteorology’s morning update said there was a 95 per cent chance of showers arriving in Melbourne from late morning, with possible hail, and that could develop into a thunderstorm by afternoon or early evening. 

In Sydney, racegoers heading to Randwick Racecourse will fare much better with a mostly sunny day and a top of 24C.
