Despite a rainy day prior, we enjoyed the perfect amount of heat to keep all of our fascinators & fedoras in place for the lucky number seven edition (7th annual year) of The Deighton Cup presented by The Social Concierge, MMG Group, Camber Communications & more.
Kuna Lu www.kunaphotography.com & I skipped the insanely long line and headed straight for the Media check-in to get our wristbands, admiring many adorned headpieces, gorgeous floral sundresses, and dapper gents on our way down.
We first checked out the Veuve Cliqout VIP lounge for some bubbles & snapped some stylish guys & dolls sporting their best “Day at the Races” inspired looks.
The sweet smell of cigar smoke filled the air and the jazz band played as we were transported into another time & place with the glamour. Could this really be Vancouver, or were my eyes playing tricks on me? There was not a yoga pant in sight! 😛
I entered the Style Stakes-Best Dressed Awards, presented by Market One Media Group Inc. hosted by SHAW TV’s Fiona Forbes, where the best-dressed “Belle Du Jour & Gallant Sartorialist” win $500 each at The Deighton Cup. The prize was well deserved and won by couple Lucy Orellana-Lopez & her man Michael Boulet who both embodied the alternative/pin-up/indie version of this award. Michael helped Lucy with the construction on her beautiful hat, both are such a creative couple!
Horses sped by with jockeys riding like the wind during gallops my friend Michelle & her man had their money ($500 each) on #5.
Dominique Hanke looking adorable sporting her newest creation (loved this fascinator!) and enjoying some delicious organic cotton candy by Petite Puf! Dom is wearing a beautiful red dress designed by Connally McDougall!
I had fun checking out the Luxuy Cars – my fave was the orange Mclaren that Nicki Minaj owns
Once again my talented Stylist, Raul Manriquez knocked my look out of the park derby style, with a polka dot pant, neck jewels from Holt Renfew, a black blazer and a chrome clutch paired with my newly purchased style specs shades and Moschino timepiece/bracelet by Jeremy Scott both picked up at Mine & Yours on Hornby.

Overall I met some cool peeps, shared some laughs, saw some old friends & enjoyed this event very much! Thanks for having us!!
