2011 Melbourne Cup: Sophie Van Den Akker

Hello perfectly polished race day beauty look! Last season's Australia's Next Top Model contestant Sophie Van Den Akker is a great example of trackside excellence — though her black and ivory hat and classic red lip would maybe be more suited to Derby Day. Note the velvet complexion, the subtle hint of blush and the faultless matte lip. The white shimmer on the inner V of the eye again serves to "open up" the eye and with her angled headpiece, a ponytail is a great hair choice. The lashes are a bit spidery but that's just us nit-picking. Thoughts?

Don't forget to vote on all of my Melbourne Cup polls!
