Derby Day Fashion: Olympia Valance, Crystal Kimber Are Stunning
Celebrities such as Sam Armytage, Jules Robinson and Olympia Valance flocked to two major running events held in Sydney and Melbourne today.
A fully vaccinated crowd of 5,500 spectators attend Derby Day today – the opening event of Flemington’s four-day Melbourne Cup carnival.
And Sydney doesn’t miss the fun of racing either, with celebrities like Sam Armytage and Jules Robinson flocking to the Golden Eagle.
In Melbourne, it’s a much smaller event than the usual 90,000 spectators at Derby Day – but there are still plenty of fashions on the pitch, with a traditional black and white dress code for women and men.
