Everyone's Melbourne Cup outfits were ruined and... it's a 'lil bit funny.

When you think about the fact that thousands of people are turning up to Flemington Racecourse today to watch an event that’s a ‘lil bit barbaric (come at me), it makes it seem slightly profound that nature… turned on them.

As some of Australia’s most beautiful people got ready for Tuesday’s Melbourne Cup, it started to rain. ‘Oh, it’ll pass,’ they probably thought, as their makeup artists and hair stylists fluttered around, anxiously. ‘You don’t wear a dress worth thousands of dollars for it to be rained on!’

But… the rain is still going.

And it’s… hilarious.

There’s nothing quite as amusing as seeing stunning, impeccably dressed humans have to use decidedly fugly props like umbrellas and ponchos to keep them dry.

Like, it’s 2018. Why are our lives not waterproof? Pls.

In front of the cameras, 2018’s Melbourne Cup is looking like this:

And that will never, ever not be funny.

YOU JUST KNOW THE HORSES ARE LAUGHING AND THAT IS MY FAVOURITE PART OF ALL OF THIS.

HAHA stupid humans.
HAHA stupid humans.

On Instagram, Australian celebrities have shared the behind-the-scenes ways they're... dealing.

Dat sunshine.

No one was... prepared for this. Not least the Mumm marquee, which has reportedly started to flood. It's rumoured that Scott Disick and his girlfriend Sofia Richie are special guests at the Melbourne Cup this year, and pls.

Their faces.

I need to see them.

When they see it.

I.. know.

EVERYONE WILL BE COVERED IN MUD BY THE END OF THE DAY I GUARANTEE IT.

I just hope the horses get some time to appreciate how silly the humans look. And then while everyone's distracted by their ponchos/umbrellas/drinks/bets, the horses can run free, never to be seen again.
