The Dubai World Cup, at the end of March each year, is one of the most prestigious race days in the world! Few events can compete with the scenery and excitement that the Dubai Racing Club offers at the Meydan Racecourse.
If all you've experienced is night racing at Moonee Valley or Churchill Downs ... get ready for this night to blow your mind!
The surroundings scream elegance and style, from Land Rovers to Longines Watch Co. this racecourse brings out only the best for its biggest day of the Dubai Racing Carnival. There are white linens covering the tables of the private suites, golden sofas in the common areas and spectacular views from the surrounding windows showing the gorgeous Meydan Racecourse on one side and the entire Dubai skyline on the other.
If the fantastic racing isn't enough, “Jaguar is once again playing host to the highly anticipated fashion competition.”
Along with our friends at Longines, Jaguar looks to find the Best Dressed and the Most Elegant Lady. Offering additional categories such as Best Dressed Man, Best Dressed Couple, Best Hat, and the Most Creative Hat, this competition is sure to bring out the most stylish ladies and gents in the United Arab Emirates and from all over the world!
This year, Jaguar has picked a new panel of judges, giving the competition the credibility it truly deserves.
“Renowned television personality, makeup artist and Max Factor Regional Creative Director Joelle Mardinian [joins] internationally acclaimed fashion designer and stylist AlAnoud Badr, alongside Miss World Runner-Up 2012 Jessica Kahawaty and finally Marketing Manager Nicola Gibson, who represents title sponsor Jaguar.”
This lineup of judges shows how seriously the competition is taken, not only by the men and women involved but also by the press and media that cover the event.
Commenting on the competition’s sponsorship by Jaguar, Marketing Director Hannah Naji said: “Combining power with style is the forefront of Jaguar’s leading automotive technology, and the Jaguar Style Stakes is an ideal platform to engage with our audience and bring these values to life. ... Fashion has always been an integral part of why people love coming to the races, and we hope to make this a day to remember.”
The Best Dressed Lady - UAE resident only - will be awarded a brand-new Jaguar F-Type convertible for a whole year. The Longines Most Elegant Lady will, of course, walk away with a beautiful watch on her wrist. Besides these advertised prizes, winners also will earn bragging rights, of course!
Online registration has closed but there still is room to register on the day of the event between 2 p.m. and 3:45 p.m. The event begins at 4 p.m. and continues until 7:30 p.m. Three full hours of fashionable fun!
Our own Bri Mott will be entering the competition! In a dress that cost $33 from the clearance section of Asos.com, gorgeous silver shoes from BCBGMaxazria, budgeting accessories and millinery from Boring Sidney hats, she is excited to be a part of the Jaguar Style Stakes and strut her stuff on the international stage! (Hopefully, with no trips!)
