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

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

But ongoing border restrictions forced many to celebrate the 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 monochromatic turquoise ensemble with a futuristic icicle fascinator and a tiered halterneck dress reminiscent of a chocolate box wrap.
