The 150th Melbourne Cup made its way to an overall trotting success through rain, more rain, and a glimpse of shine this year. With marquees resembling something like penthouse accommodation, A-listers were mingling in their styled perfection and general admins barreling like alcopops are going out of style. Then there's that thing I'm avoiding mentioning. The moment your giggle gags you to a snort. I'm talking all things fascinator! With 10% of race-goers getting this accessory right, I say we should take our fascination back to spring 2003 and follow Philip Treacy's mad hat parade. Making a deliberate joke of it seems like the best way to go!
