The contest for the Face of Canberra Racing heats up

By FashionPeacock - 27 February 2011 6

The search is on! Thoroughbred Park is looking for the next Myer Face of Canberra Racing and on March 11 the 2010 winner Aprelle Cody, will be handing over the crown to a new glamorous lady.

Now the public can vote for their favourite Face, on Out in Canberra.

The Favourite Face represents style, sophistication and the social side of Canberra life. Entrants were asked to answer the following question: ‘Why should you be the Myer Face of Canberra Racing for 2011?’
Today at Throughbred Park is Preview Day and the first judging, where the field will be narrowed to the final ten. Three entrants for the final ten will be chosen by the public, with the other seven contestants selected by the Face of Canberra Racing judging panel. Why not head down to Thoroughbred Park today and see all the racing action as well as the announcement of the top ten? Today (Sunday 27 February)at 2:50 pm.

I personally love racing fashion as it is one of the last places you can go and get properly dressed up. My love of all things vintage and old fashioned means that I love that the guidelines for ‘Classic Racewear’ remain very traditional. Ladies are required to cover their shoulders, wear a dress that comes at least to the knee, with stockings or pantyhose. Head wear is a must and other extras like gloves are encouraged. Gentlemen must wear a suit, tie and hat at the very least.

What do you love about the races? Do the judges follow these guidelines? Who will you be cheering on?

What’s Your opinion?

please if you have nothing good to say why bother commenting?

Because it makes me feel like a big man when I hide behind relative anonymity and spew barbs from my keyboard. I don’t think I even said anything particularly nasty anyway. Plus you still haven’t answered the question. Go on then.

Hell of a job taking a photo of “intelligence”.

Whenever I read a comment like that, it always reminds me of this image;

Who said anything about degrading women? not me. If you actually looked at link you would have noticed that each contestant was required to write a small piece about why they should be the Face of Canberra Racing, so they have a chance to show their intelligence also. 🙂

And that has what to do with anything? It’s a modeling competition, judged on style and look, please if you have nothing good to say why bother commenting?

I was under the impression that a competition judged solely on looks was degrading for women…I wish you girls would make up your mind
