The Melbourne Cup takes place tomorrow, and over the years the race that stops the nation has attracted Aussie stars and international talent to Flemington Racecourse. Since landing her gig as a Myer ambassador, Jennifer Hawkins has been a staple at the VIP marquees, while race royalty Kate Waterhouse has grown up trackside, supporting her mother, horse trainer Gai Waterhouse, year after year. Visiting celebrities have included Chloë Sevigny, Snoop Dogg, Good Charlotte, Louise Roe and Enrique Iglesias — this year we welcome stars including Kate Upton and Whitney Port — and homegrown talent such as Liam Hemsworth, Rose Byrne and Melissa George have enjoyed days down by the track when they’ve been in town. Before we get into the racing spirit tomorrow, take a trip down memory lane with celebrity snaps from past Melbourne Cups!
