Blue Diamond every year is a hotly contested Fashion competition and this is where 'Racing Fashion' started with my first posts of Blue Diamond 4 years ago. The way and the standard of the competition and how it has grown in the past 4 years is tremendous.
Yesterday I was blessed to film and wear the most beautiful trophy, 'The Blue Diamond' while wearing the 'Blue Diamond', the richest 2 year old race in Victoria run over 1200 metres. I am starting off with giving everyone a sneak peek of all the fantastic looks over the day, but I did bring along my professional photographer as well as 'Racing Fashion TV' to finalise series 5.
I would like to congratulate all the judges for doing a tremendous job and looking for current styles and trends with attention to detail. “Shoes were the main thing that did let down the finalists.”, said one Judge.
It was wonderful to see a lady being the right side of fabulous take out the major prize. Jenny Beard, as huge congratulations to you. This was well deserved and you looked immaculate. It is so wonderful to be the 'Winner' on the day, but more importantly is to be a participant, or just attend the races well groomed and well dressed. There were a couple of 'Incidents' on stage of 'Bucks Parites' getting up on stage in dresses. This is distasteful to other competitors. What seems like a joke to you, is not mindful that take this so seriously and you will not be photographed.
Yesterday, I started giving a limited number of 20 Rosette's to competitors, members and attendees that looked and obviously felt fantastic. It is a reminder, that the point is not to compete to be the best, it is to attend feeling fantastic. Thank you to all the ladies that dress beautifully and take their appearance into consideration when attending the races.
Seeing the 'Racing Fashion Rosette's' were such a hit, with genuine appreciation from all recipients, I will continue to search not only in the fashion areas, but on course walking around to find ladies of all ages, sizes and shapes looking stunning.
You are the people who inspire me to spend ridiculous amounts of money on 'Racing Fashion TV' and showcase you all. Thank you. It is about you, and wearing a fabulous HAT! Anna. X
