IN true Melburnian style, Derby Day was drenched in black.
Lace in shades of black and white seemed to dominate the rainy day. Appearances were demure and lady-like. Fascinators sharp and large, and accessories such as pearls, bow-ties and gloves were prominent.
APL battled against the rain, to get the best shots of the hottest celebs from the Birdcage marquee.
Kelly Osbourne, Sophie Monk, Alex Fevola, Liam Hemsworth, Rhys Ulrich, J-Hawk, Mel B, and Megan Gale were snapped up by the APL lens.
However despite the unruly weather, race goers continued to celebrate in true style. In particular, the ravishing Dame Edna who inspired many with her frilly, rainbow coloured clown get up.
It was a good day for APL PHOTGRAPHY, who left the track with a bevy of quality snaps, and a soaking wet suit.
What a trooper you are, APL.
