Celebs Trot Out Designer Duds at the Melbourne CupBy Kim Holmes
Coco Rocha and Dita Von Teese look stunning at the Melbourne Cup.
Canadian supermodel Coco Rocha and burlesque queen Dita Von Teese both made a splash at the Melbourne Cup on November 5. Known for its high fashion and even higher headpieces, the Melbourne cup is Australia’s major annual horse race (a Down Under Kentucky Derby, if you will). Coco dressed to impress in a designer Peter Piletto dress and Nerida Winter fascinator, while Dita looked lovely in an elaborate orchid headpiece.
You can find Coco's stylish tri-color dress online here:

There were other stylish celebs in attendance, including supermodel Kate Upton and former Spice Girl Geri Halliwell. Coco, Dita, and Coco’s husband, James Conran, all shared their pictures from the race—including a video of Coco taking her very first helicopter ride. Take a look at their gorgeous images below.
