Jasmine & Karl Stefanovic's extravagant Melbourne Cup bash is a sight to behold - not least for their outfits

The new parents went all out for the big day.

It's been a big year for Jasmine and Karl Stefanovic, so we can't blame them for kicking off its end in style.
The pair, who welcomed a new baby girl back in May, have been keeping their private life relatively low key as they settle into life as parents together.
But on Tuesday this week, we got to see a whole other side to their lives - and it was as tantalisingly glamorous as you'd expect.
As the nation marked Melbourne Cup Day, the couple, who were married back in November 2018, celebrated with an afternoon fiesta with some of their friends.
Of course, given the Cup itself was restricted to jockeys and those directly involved in the race, Australia's usual race goers had to improvise for the day, with many taking to their back lawns to host their own celebrations.
Jasmine and Karl were case in point - and boy, did they go all out for it.

Sharing a series of images to her Instagram from the day, Jasmine revealed her heavenly races outfit.
Wearing a while floral three quarter sleeve dress which finished just above her knees, she paired the look with some while strappy heels and a chic pair of white sunglasses.
Karl meanwhile dressed up smart in a white and black tuxedo suit with a black hat.
Quite the chic couple here! (Instagram)
The event's decor was also something to behold.
Along with the Insta-worthy flower wall, Jasmine revealed a backyard decked out to look like a street in Italy.
"Villa Pizza", Jasmine aptly wrote over her video panning the backyard set up.

Jasmine and Karl weren't the only ones to go all out in their back yards for Melbourne Cup.
While they'd usually be gallivanting in the infamous Birdcage at Flemington Racecourse, a number of stars instead made their own back yards a sufficiently bougie establishment for the day.
