Jessica Mauboy Sacks Stylist Following Melbourne Cup Fiasco

According to the Daily Telegraph, Jessica Mauboy has sacked her stylist following the Melbourne Cup footwear fiasco.

Jess missed her cue to sing the National Anthem at the Melbourne Cup because of an issue with her footwear.

Minutes before she was meant to take the stage, she was stopped by racing officials who deemed her shoes “inappropriate” because they weren’t from MYER, the brand who sponsors the event.
