With some of the country's most glamorous icons stepping out at Flemington, Oaks Day has preserved its place as one of fashion's biggest days of the year.
Australian celebrities mingled with some Hollywood stars, with sex, alcohol and extravagant outfits just a few of the topics touched on by racegoers.
Sex and the City star Kim Cattrall brought attention off the track by saying she'd happily entertain the idea of whips and chains in the bedroom.
But she wasn't the only one letting her hair down, with socialite Brynne Edelsten claiming the vodka was going down a little too easily.
And it wasn't just celebrities making statements, with other punters showing off extravagant outfits and head-wear that took over four weeks to create.
From celebrities to everyday revellers, we've collected some of the best moments of Oaks Day in this slideshow.
