Fashion a clear winner at races

IT MAY have been an event focused on horse racing, but fashion was the clear winner at the Gladstone Cup race meet on Saturday.

Despite a few fashion crimes, the majority was effortlessly glamorous and showed off some gorgeous racewear fashion.

With so many great frocks on display the Fashion on the Fields was highly contested with Tara Price taking out first position with her chic black dress with ruffled detail. In second place was Heidi Schumacher with a bold, blue floral dress with third place going to Chris Peterson dressed in a well-tailored chequed jacket and contrasting fascinator.

Alicia Cross was a clear favourite for Best Fascinator with a bright pink and blue floral piece that was simply stunning when teamed with her bold colourful dress.

For the guys it was Nathan Klupfel who was deemed best dressed in his purple tie and shirt with a grey vest and suit pants.

Coming in second was Jack Peterson with an aqua shirt which popped next to his white suit and fedora hat.
