A day at the races - competitions galore

I recently entered into a Canberra competition called ‘The Myer Face of Canberra Racing.’

The competition was open to all women aged between 18 – 40 years of age.
All you had to do to enter was provide two photos of yourself, so I thought – why not?

I got a call a few weeks later saying I was chosen as one of the top 20 applicants! With only a few days notice I put together an outfit to portray ‘Classic Ladies Racewear’ which was the criteria for the day.

Rules which we had to abide by included:
  • fascinator or hat essential
  • gloves, umbrellas or other accessories advantageous
  • no demin
  • hosiery a must
  • closed toe shoes only.
The final product:

I wore a checked skirt with tulle underlay, black top with silk ruffles accompanied by a red clutch, black gloves, white pearl and red lucite rose necklace and matching bracelet and a black/white netted fascinator with a red rose feature.
In saying all of this I didn’t make it into the top ten but I had a great day out at the races.
These girls did and you can see the array of wonderful dresses and stylish women I was up against!

But wait there is more! Yes a second part to the competition.
The top 50 women (from with the top 20 were first chosen) are now in the running to win the outincanberra (local magazine) Canberra Favourite Face.

This is a public vote and you can see the contestants here

Please vote for me! (Amelia Huang)

Voting ends on Friday this week and the winner is announced on Sunday 7 March at the Black Opal Stakes – Race Day at Thoroughbred Park.

xoxo Amelia
