Former Miss Universe Australia Olivia Molly Rogers changed clothes again with a vengeance, dazzling at today’s Melbourne Cup in a red off-the-shoulder dress with a risqué cut.
Ambassador of VRC, who last month confirmed the breakup with her husband seven months, looked stunning in the dress by Australian designer Oglialoro Couturewhich featured intricate beading and sequins and ended just below her knees.
She finished off her outfit with a gold and red jewel headpiece by Ezara J.
Rogers, who previously said her life was “falling apart”, put personal difficulties aside to attend her professional session – her second this week at the Melbourne Cup Carnival.
Dozens of the 30-year-old’s Instagram followers were quick to comment on her “spectacular” outfit – the latest of her looks to echo the same energy Princess Diana did in 1994 when she stepped out in a thigh-hugging LBD and pearl choker on the night King (then Prince) Charles admitted to adultery on national television.
“You always give me Princess Di vibes,” one fan commented on the snap Rogers’ Derby Day Ensemble.
Rogers’ previous outfit – a skin-tight black dress – also prompted her followers to write: “Did someone say revenge dress?”
Comparisons to the influencer were sparked during an appearance at Melbourne Fashion Week last month, when she stepped out in a bold orange Helen O’Connor maxi dress with a statement cut.
Although she laughed that she could never be compared to the Princess of Wales, there’s no doubt that she’s been attracting attention for all the right reasons lately.
“I’m focusing on having a good time and living my best life,” Rogers said Herald Sun.
“Wearing a good outfit definitely helps your confidence. It was a tough time, but I made it.”
She added that “fashion week, the races, it’s a good time to break up.”
“It’s breakup season, as they say,” she joked.
Styled by Bloom’s Paul Versace, Rodgers’ stylist said Adelaide now that she was focused on “living her best life.”
“She was the moment,” he said.
“The amount of messages people have sent her and me is really overwhelming. She’s on her way to style, she’s doing it and she’s living her best life.”
