What They Wore: Melbourne Cup 2015 November 06 2015, 0 Comments


We love the unexpected pop of orchid purple in this outfit!

 It's never a bad day here at Natalie Chan HQ when we have to research into outfit inspirations as worn by ever so stylish ladies at the races, and the recent Melbourne Cup provided us with the best images to scope. Here are our picks of our favourite looks as seen over in Melbourne on Cup Day, Derby Day, Stakes Day and Oaks Day...

Rebecca Judd looks great in this contemporary pairing of hat and dress.


Amazing display of colour blocking in this outfit, we love the scroll detail on the hat too.

Myer ambassador Jodi Anasta looks a vision in head to toe blush.

We love the attention to detail in this beautiful look, from the purse, manicure, heels and of course dress and hat.


Stylist Lana Wilkinson with a very cool and fun take on what to wear at the races!

We love illustrator Megan Hess' fresh and feminine outfit.


 Amazing details in this outfit, in particular those sleeves and peplum on the skirt.

Head to toe blue looks effective in this outfit, with the shades of periwinkle and navy and incorporation of different patterns and textures!

New Zealand's very own Charlotte Moor, a seasoned race goer came second in the 'Fashion on the Fields' competition on both Derby and Cup day. An amazing feat as her very talented mother Alison creates all of her dresses and hats!

Another great example of colour blocking in this outfit, this time cobalt and black.

A derby day look

We love the relaxed yet stylish look of this outfit, in particular the straw boater!

Another take on the straw boater and loving the print on print ensemble.

A very contemporary take on race-wear as spotted on Derby Day!

In the dress of the season, we love this race goers look with a slim boater and lace up heels.

One of the judges of the Fashion in the Fields competition Kate Waterhouse.



Hope you've enjoyed looking through our picks as much as we've enjoyed compiling them. Our own cup week in Auckland is still a few months away, but we are dreaming of our outfits already!
