Celebrities descended upon Flemington Racecourse in their best black and white ensembles for Derby Day on Saturday. The star crowd included a mix of local talent, visiting Aussies and international stars, who mingled in the marquees. Rachael Taylor, whose show Charlie’s Angels was axed earlier this month, is home to shoot a new Bonds campaign, while Dita Von Teese missed the monochrome memo and opted for a bright red dress.

Jennifer Hawkins partied in the Myer marquee with Rebecca Judd, and funny men Hamish Blake and Andy Lee were also on hand for the festivities. Lots of these stars will be out again on Tuesday for the Melbourne Cup.
