GLADSTONE'S most glamorous made the most of their Melbourne Cup celebrations yesterday afternoon.

Instead of embracing just another day in the office, workers took advantage of the clear skies and sparkling wine at a number of lavish lunch functions.

More than 150 people nibbled on canapes at the inaugural Observer, GEA, GAPDL Melbourne Cup Day function, while others flocked to the Gladstone Turf Club to cheer their favourite home.

The Yaralla Sports Club luncheon had guests from local business and industry indulged in a two-course lunch, followed by sweets.

Guests made the most of the afternoon with a photo booth and free make-up touch-ups.

At Ferguson Park about 500 fashionistas and their partners were trackside for a range of local and interstate races, including the race that stopped the nation.

Although a surprise Melbourne Cup winner took some punters off guard, it seems many enjoyed the iconic event, even if it meant sneaking a glass of bubbles at their desk.
