Fashions on the Field has come and gone for another year at Caulfield. What a day that was! The Fashions on the Field was tough to pick and I personally thought another would have come through, but you never know what the judges are looking for on the day.
Allot think there is the formula to winning and I see it come and go. One year someone is hot the next they are not. The Fashions on the Field for the Caulfield Cup was colourful and bright and happy. There was a good mix into the final which gave something for everyone to look at.
This is a competition of grooming, deportment and knowing what is going to catch the judges eye. Really, if you look at who is doing it, they know there stuff and some have entered 100s of times. Don't let that detract you from your time in the limelight though. Some ladies are just entering for the first or second year and getting stories written about them in the papers and interviewed. It is a great platform if you want to start working on your presence in front of people for public speaking, modelling and confidence. It is tough to be judged, and when I saw in some of the trendiest marquee's and let me say celebrity profile, the ladies on stage and in members where flying fields ahead.
One dear friend who is ever so knowledgeable in the world of equine did have a faux pas, another reality TV show lady could not help but show her boobs and lack of head wear. Although we had the trend of the 80s last year, please don't bring back the mid riff. This is not ladylike, it is not for the races and really belongs to 'I dream of Jeanie'.
I loved chatting to the people on course and the die hard racing fanatics that muse over their betting and by now you will all know my husband, 'Hard Luck Motty' has joined the show. He is somewhat of a very unlucky punter mixed with the fisherman with the one that got away. We always seem to miss out on 2million dollars. You have to laugh. It is all in good fun.
Congratulations to all ladies on track looking beautiful and taking their time to find superb Millinery. I think it is respectful that you keep to tradition and “WEAR A HAT!”. (No names mentioned)
Although I did have to start a new trend, wearing chinese noodle boxes on my heels, not sure if it will take off, but we all had a good giggle.
Notice to all, Our Favourite Donny Galella has been taking notes on Fashions on the Field contestants,
“I must admit, I do love watching the serial hardcore contestants. Their tactics are quite impressive, many taking it more seriously than a Miss Universe pageant. Let me tell you, they are HARDCORE. I’ve seen girls rock up with 3 outfit options and get there early to suss out their competition before they decide which outfit to wear. I’ve seen tears, tantrums, ozone depletion thanks to copious amounts of hairspray being used and (bitchy) forum websites where these serial (nasty) entrants go to bitch about ‘new comers’ to the F.O.T.H “scene”. “
