We really enjoyed The Meydan Style Stakes 2017 part of Dubai World Cup. One of the most anticipated fashion events, celebrating creativity and style together with the excitement of the horse races.
Despite the fact that the competition had to relocate to the concourse due to the rain, sophisticated and talented men and women delighted us with their elegant looks.
You want to know the winners? For sure, you do! These are the winners of each category part of the competition.
MEYDAN STYLE STAKES 2017
Most Creative Hat
And the winner is … Oxana MacLaren. She is a cosmetologist from Ukraine and she wore her own creation. She said to be inspired by her idea of Dubai as a blossoming country and the many beautiful gardens here. “It’s called “The Garden”. Although we live in the dessert, there is a lot of greenery here. (My hat) its full of flowers, butterflies, birds and great emotions.”
Best Dressed Couple
Mercedes Alfonso, a fashion blogger from Spain and Kim Lenssens, a Belgian pilot from Emirates, were the winners of the Best Dressed Couple category. Mercedes was responsible for both outfits. She got inspired by Flamenco dresses, and the bullfighting cape contrasting colors. The Spanish totally rocked a beautiful burgundy dress with ruffled sleeves, matching her husbands’ waist coat. She designed both outfits. All we can say is that here lies a talented fashion designer!
