Princess Diana’s nieces Lady Amelia and Lady Eliza Spencer stun in matching ensembles as they judge the Melbourne Cup’s Fashions in the Field event

The Spencer sisters stepped out in stunning colour-coordinated red ensembles as they attended the Melbourne Cup. 

Lady Amelia Spencer and Lady Eliza Spencer, who are Princess Diana‘s nieces, were invited to judge contestants at the racing event’s Fashions in the Field competition. 

The socialite twins, both 31, looked effortlessly chic in matching dresses, which they paired with understated headpieces.

Fashions in the Field sees hundreds of people enter each year in the hope of being crowned the ‘Best Dressed’ and ‘Best Suited’. It takes place before the start of the horse race.

The Melbourne Cup horse race at the Flemington Racecourse in Melbourne has been held on the first Tuesday of November since 1876.

Lady Amelia donned a short skater-style dress featuring a sweetheart neckline and short sleeves.

She paired the dress with red stilettos and a flower headband, with her blond tresses swept back into a ponytail. 

Meanwhile, Lady Eliza opted for a red ankle-length, off-the-shoulder gown, with a slit at the front. 

Completing her outfit, Lady Eliza wore a thin gold headpiece that came down over her face and a pair of ‘barely there’ heels. She wore her hair down in a sleek style, tucked behind her ears. 

Both sisters kept their make-up clean and minimal, opting for a natural pink lip colour and nude eye make-up.

The twins’ appearance comes after they attended a fashion show to mark the 50th anniversary of designer Marc Cain GmbH in Bodelshausen in September.

And it seems the Spencer sisters enjoy colour-coordinating, as then they were both pictured in pink ensembles. 

Amelia lit up the room in bright pink culotte trousers and a matching blue and magenta silk blouse which was tucked in at the waist. 

To accessorise, she held onto a bag which popped against her pearly white manicure. 

Elsewhere, Eliza was the picture of sophistication in a pastel pink dress, which featured cape-like detailing along the shoulders. 

Adding a touch of glitz, she teamed the simple yet elegant frock with a silver clutch and heels.

They sat in the front row at the fashion show, and were joined by Diane Kruger, whom they could be seen sharing a smile with at the event. 

Their outing came after the Spencer family marked the 26th anniversary of Princess Diana’s passing the day before on August 31.

Lady Eliza previously admitted neither of the twins had any idea of Diana’s impact on the world until years after her death.

‘We always just knew her as our aunt,’ she told Tatler in 2021, adding that she remembers her as ‘incredibly warm, maternal and loving’.

‘Growing up in South Africa, I really had very little idea of how significant she was in the world until I was much older… She always made an effort to connect with us as children and had a talent for reading children’s hearts.’
