Stars step out in style for Melbourne Cup 2016

It might be the race that stops a nation, but the stakes are just as high for the fashionistas competing for best dressed.

The stars have started to arrive at Flemington racecourse for the Melbourne Cup today and judging by the looks so far – bold & bright is in!!

Here is a selection of our favourite looks hitting the track:
