The World’s Biggest Screen Star Wore an Australian Designer to Derby Day

Derby Day felt like Hollywood on Saturday when Hilary Swank made a grand entrance (and even grander exit) in glittering Christopher Esber Resort 15/16.

Choosing to stay away from typical race-day fashions (er, a dress), Swank went for a wet-weather appropriate tunic and pants combo for her first-ever Derby Day.

It wasn’t Swank’s first time in Melbourne, having visited the city 21 years prior, telling Sydney Morning Herald, "Victoria is one of my favourite places. The people, the culture and the country are just stunning. I remember the food being great. I wish I had more time to spend here."
