Our most fashionable locals celebrated the 157th running of the Melbourne Cup in true style yesterday.

Colour - and lots of it - was the order of the day, both on the track and at Mosman hot spots, with bold hues making an appearance at luxury lunches hosted by Bathers Pavilion, Public Dining Room, The Buena and Bistro Moncur.

And of course, we were there to bring you the beautiful faces and the elegant fashion of race day - in true Mosman style!

 

BISTRO MONCUR 

This Mosman hot spot is very much the domain of our local fashion set - and Melbourne Cup day certainly didn't disappoint! Finely dressed ladies and gentlemen partied long into the afternoon - with bold, bright colours the order of the day.

THE BUENA

Our beloved local pub is very much the heart and soul of the community - and it was where many Mosman party-goers gathered yesterday, to enjoy a wonderful lunch and a few drinks to celebrate the race that stops the nation.
