Fashions on the field at Sapphire Coast Turf Club on Melbourne Cup Day 2017 | People’s Choice Award

The Melbourne Cup is traditionally a horse race, but the real competition happens off the track when the best dressed guests go head-to-head for fashions on the field.

The judges have already nominated their winners for best dressed couple, best hat, best dressed male and best dressed female over and under 40 at the Sapphire Coast Turf Club on Tuesday. 

But now it’s your turn to cast your vote. We snapped all our fashions on the field contenders who are now in the running for the People’s Choice Award. Browse through our gallery, pick your favourite outfit and cast your vote below. 

The most popular look will win a $100 dinner voucher to indulge themselves at Waves Restaurant in Merimbula and the runner up can treat themselves with a $50 colour treatment at Trendsetter Hair Studio in Tura Beach. 

Voting closes at 12pm on Monday, November 13. Winners will be announced through our newspaper and website.
