For race day, mum-of-one Elyse rocked a black and white patterned dress designed by Alex Perry.
The model added an unusual pair of Giambattista Valli lace-up boots and carried a black clutch.
Ever the natural beauty, Elyse left her blonde locks out and styled them in a windswept fashion- perhaps in ode to her days as a Sydney beach bade.
