Hollywood actress Elsa Pataky has happily slipped into an Australian-designed dress but isn't following all of husband Chris Hemsworth's Melbourne Cup tips.

The Fast and the Furious star arrived in style to Flemington, stepping out of a helicopter in a bright orange frock by Melbourne designers to the stars, Cappellazzo.

"I'm in Australia so I really have to wear Australian designers and I'm very happy (to)," she told reporters on Tuesday.

"I've seen a few designers and the colour is amazing.

"It's such a fashion event and I see everybody is just so beautiful and dressed up."

She said husband Hemsworth, who did not accompany Pataky on Tuesday, is very good with tips but she was also backing Oceanographer.

"Chris and I are very fond of the ocean so I think it's an amazing name."

Pataky was a guest at the Emirates marquee in the Birdcage.

Pataky and Hemsworth live at Byron Bay.
