Jennifer Hawkins breaks all the fashion rules with her Melbourne Cup outfit.

When Jennifer Hawkins decides to do “something different” in the fashion stakes, you know it’s going to be incredible – and today’s red jumpsuit is no exception.

It’s not often you see pants at the races, but Jen’s Misha Collection jumpsuit is definitely a standout fashion on the field so far.

"For the Cup, everybody lets loose," Hawkins told of her approach to today's outfit. "The cup is about having some fun."

“I think the fashion rules are a bit relaxed when it comes to pants now, but I still think they can be really classic and traditional. And it’s like 1970s and I love it.”

Oh, and the back is amazing.

We're reserving our judgment until the end of the day, of course, but this is definitely one of our favourite looks so far.

Yesterday, the Australia's Next Top Model judge attracted headlines after making her first public comment on plastic surgery.

“Each to their own,” she said in a statement to Confidential, which doesn't give away much.

Is she suggesting she's had plastic surgery herself, or just showing support for those who choose to do so?

We've thought about those four words a lot...  and we're still not sure.
