Celebrities have officially started their glamorous transformations on the track ahead of Tuesday’s Melbourne Cup festivities.
However, several famous faces will not descend on Flemington Racecourse, including former WAG Nadia Bartel.
Early Tuesday morning, the red carpet announced via Instagram Stories that she will not be attending the race that brought the country to a standstill, and will instead spend time with her sons.
‘No cup for me today. I’m excited to have a chill day with the boys. This again!’ she wrote alongside a photo of herself posing in a Pilates studio.
Meanwhile, kicking off the morning’s preparations was Amy Castano, founder of the gym, who took to Instagram with a mirror selfie as she met her stylist.
