RiotACT met some Melbourne Cup lunch-goers at the Hotel Realm this afternoon. You can see all our photos on Instagram, or view a selection here.
Justine Redwin, Karen Mathias, Lana Davidson-Parker, Alicia Murphy, Ashleigh Hogwood and Alicia Welsh.
Laura Neill, Kate Chaloner, James Neill and Georgia Clear. James won best dressed bloke later.
At right, our pick for best dressed, Irene Pavlovic, with old school friend (also looking gorgeous) Nina McLeod.
Malcolm O’Leary, David Heacock and Shannon Bushell.
Everyone was smiling, whether they won or not (one attendee who is not pictured won $200,000 for picking the trifecta, congratulations to them!).
