The Deighton Cup, a Vancouver summertime tradition returns to Hastings Racecourse this Saturday with “Style Stakes”, where the best dressed man and woman are voted live by the audience and a panel of judges to win fabulous prizes.
This fashion search begins Saturday afternoon for 20 Style Stakes contestants which will be reduced to three male and female finalists to take the stage.
To pre-register, take a full-length photo of you and your outfit, post on Instagram and tag @deightoncup and email your photo, cell #, and Instagram image link to email@example.com before Friday, July 19th.
Or you can have a professional photo of you and your outfit taken onsite at the self-nomination centre from 12 noon to 2 pm.
Stylist men and women on the race grounds aren’t the only appeal of the Deighton Cup. You can try your luck on eight energy charged horse races, indulge on French Champagne, Acadian Sturgeon, caviar and fresh oysters, view luxury supercars and dance at the “After Track” live party with an international acclaimed DJ Frank Walker.
For the Deighton Cup is more than just fun, fashion and derby style excitement. Now in its 11th year, and with an expected audience of over 7,000 spectators, it’s where you may find yourself the Belle Du Jour or the Gallant Sartorialist of the horse races.
