Kempsey Cup 2017 Fashions on the Field | Photos

The ladies and gents are stepping out in style at this year’s Kempsey Cup.

Judges are circling the field to pick out the top fashion contenders to compete in today’s Fashions on the Field event.

Be sure to check out all the live coverage here.

Judging for the contest will begin at 2.45pm – so be sure to come on down and glimpse the finest frocks and dapper suits on the field.

There are several categories to enter today for both men, women and, for the first time, children:

  • Fillies of the Field: ladies aged 18-29 years old.
  • Colt on the Course: men under 30 years. 
  • Best Dressed Lady of Fashion: ladies 30-50.
  • Best Dressed Male: men over 30.
  • Best Dressed Mature Lady: over 50.
  • Best Dressed Children’s category.

This year, as a new concept, judges will mingle among guests at the race meeting and check out the fashion finesse being brought to the Kempsey competition. If you are one of the lucky chosen ones, you will be given a number to compete for the prize pool. 

The special fashion judges will be Chris King, a makeup artist who has worked with Vogue magazine and Harpers Bazaar among others and a self described local ambassador for tourism and culture in Kempsey. 

Muni Osborne and Michael O’Mullane make up the rest of the judging panel with prizes donated from a range of local businesses.

Prizes this year include: a nights accommodation at the Sea Breeze Hotel at South West Rocks; a nights accommodation in Sydney and return flights from Port Macquarie to Sydney for two; Clarins gift pack, Estee’ Lauder skincare and perfume pack and $1000 gift voucher for Harley and Rose, as well as much more!
