It literally does, it stops the whole country and by that I obviously mean the Melbourne Cup. I have nothing to do with the racing industry whatsoever but I couldn't help but be glued to the television screen as well.
I always like to see the fashions celebs wear to racing events and I thought model Jennifer Hawkins (in Toni Maticevski) looked particularly smashing this year. How gorgeous is her headpiece? I have a huge soft spot for peacock feathers. Sorry for the small images, these were the only ones I could find where you could see her whole outfit so they'll have to make do.Source: Couriermail.com.au
