Melissa Leong appeared to be in good spirits on Thursday as she made a spectacular finish at Oaks Day in Melbourne.
The former MasterChef Australia judge, 41, sent temperatures soaring in a designer floral dress that showed off her incredible figure.
She teamed it with a stylish black fascinator hat and looked equally excited as she posed for photos.
The stunner’s jet black hair was elegantly coiffed and she spiced up her look with a light coat of makeup and bold red lipstick.
Melissa looked focused as she rocked her best angles for the cameras and showed the other guests how it’s done.

It comes after the former MasterChef star insisted she has nothing but love for her co-stars on the Channel 10 cooking show, shortly after it was announced she will not be returning to the series next year.
The food critic and TV personality spoke about a feud between herself and fellow judges Andy Allen and the late Jock Zonfrillo during a candid chat with Ny Breaking Australia at The Birdcage at Flemington Racecourse on Tuesday.
“This isn’t my first rodeo,” Leong declared, shaking off the speculative stories as part of the course in the high-stakes world of reality TV.

When pressed about friction on the MasterChef set, Leong said: “I have nothing but love and respect for not only Andy, but everyone I’ve worked with.”
“We’re a team, we’re a family, and that’s all you really need to know,” Melissa added.
When asked about the grief the MasterChef family experienced following Zonfrillo’s shock death, Leong demurred.

“I think out of respect for everyone involved and the way people deal with grief individually, it’s just not for me to say.”
However, Melissa’s enthusiasm was palpable as she spoke about her new gig on Dessert Masters, describing working with celebrity pastry chef Amaury Guichon as a “dream come true.”
On the personal side of things, the recent rumors had fans speculating about a romance rekindling with her ex, Rob Mason.
When pressed on matters of the heart, Leong kept her poise and subtly steered the conversation back to her professional life.
