Horse races and Polo matches are often a stressful period for me. I really pray that we will one day get to a point where our celebrities don’t think showing up in their matric dance dresses is ok for these types of events. In 2012, I had the privilege of hosting George Kotsiopoulos (E! Fashion Police panelist), while he was on his SA Press Tour as part of his E! duties. We obviously couldn’t resist playing the local Fashion Police with George. The key takeout from the excercise was;
1. You do not wear an evening dress to a day event (races and matches are usually hosted during the day in SA)
2. Stick to the theme
3. Dazzle. I’ve carried those tips with me for all these years, hence my frustration when it comes to these particular events.
However, a few of my favourite celebs/bloggers have nailed Polo/Race Fashion.
Here is a look at my favourite iconic fashion moments – POLO/RACE EDITION
