Celebrities were feeling the full force of the windy weather at the Melbourne Cup on Tuesday as they stepped out at Flemington Race Course.
Model Samantha Harris was one star who struggled with the conditions, experiencing her own Marilyn Monroe moment as she posed for photos.
Dressed in a satin gold dress, the 27-year-old inadvertently flashed more than she bargained for as the adverse conditions claimed its latest victim.

The stunner tried in vain to prevent a wardrobe malfunction, desperately clutching her frock's lightweight fabric as it billowed in the wind.
At one point, Samantha was even forced to lean against the wall as she attempted to keep her dress under control.
Her skirt refused to behave, however, and the strong breeze exposed her slender pins to the chilly climate.
