Sandown Classic Fashions on the Field were for the die hard Fashionistas who knew that just because the mad week of Melbourne Cup week has ended, that does not mean the close of fashion on the Victorian Racecourse. Sandown Classic had gorgeous frocks and one shock of a man obviously dressed as a lady. Tommy Little the Spring Spruiker did have a soft spot for the un feminine contestant but I had to over-rule and let Tommy know that although it is a little Kitch and a bit of a joke amongst the contestants mates, this competition is serious and ladies go to allot of trouble. It was hard picking the finalists and some heats were very strong. Something I love to see is when competitors were not picked they were either seated to watch the event or cheer on their friends. Congratulations to the ladies who showed great spirit for the event. The final came down to grace and elegance. Everyone knows I love impeccable rooming and attention to detail and Pam Charleston epitomises this. Pam was a more mature contestant on the right side of 40 and carried herself with eyecatching poise. Pam had also used colours from the S/S 2010 Pantone colour chart taking us from Spring into Summer. I loved the yellow. 1st Runner up was so naturally beautiful with not a brush of any make-up realising god had done her make up. I loved the feminine floral ruffles that flowed again feeling more like a summer breeze. Although I find it difficult to judge fashions on the field, the children are the hardest to judge. They are all so beautiful. Thank you ladies and gentlemen and non fashion savvy shockers for fun (Kate, Tommy Little's favourite), it was a wonderful day. Thank you to Melbourne Racing Club for the honour of judging this event with the beautiful face of Caulfield 2009 Rebecca Warren and the fun Tommy Little.
