Forget about the horses, it's all about the fashion.

The fab and fashionable are gathering at Flemington race course for this afternoon's Melbourne Cup - and some might even watch the race.

This year is extra special with Fashions in the Field celebrating 50 years of big hats, sky high heels and super short skirts.

Of course there is always the risk of a little dabauchery as the party kicks off.

And make sure to take a stroll back through some of the best of the Spring Racing Carnival looks. Always good for a giggle.
