Fashions on the Field: Black Opal Stakes day

The Fashions on the Field competitions first started in Melbourne over 40 years ago to entice more women to the racecourse, and now is a pinnacle event for every feature race meeting at Thoroughbred Park. Racing and fashion have always gone hand-in-hand and this season the AAMI Black Opal Stakes day is the place to be seen with some faaabulous prizes up for grabs (glam holiday in Paris anyone???)...

And who is judging? I hear you ask. Well since you mentioned it, three of Canberra's premier fashionistas: face of Canberra Racing Elkie Stuart, the divine Velveteen Libertine and hmmm... oh, it's me! How fun, so guys and gals, time to glam it up and show us your inner show pony !

We're judging Children's Racewear on Preview Day, February 22. And on Black Opal Stakes Day, March 8th... Classic Ladies Race wear ~Classic Mens Race wear ~Classic Couples Race wear

Glamour, style and key accessories are some important facets to include in your outfit, and please, leave your nightclub outfit at home! And for ladies after the prize, a hat or fascinator is an absolute must.

To be in the running, your look needs to be stylish and original, classy and a bit modest. Accessorise your look and glam it up. Check the Fashions on the Field webpage here for more suggestions, prizes and judging criteria for the day.
