Although many of our dresses went, regrettably few of us at the office managed to make it to Royal Ascot. Few of us, that is, save for GMD press officer Anastasia. Arming herself with camera and fascinator, Anastasia headed to the races….Here is our lovely A’s account of the day….
Fascinator: John Lewis – ‘it was almost a £650 Phillip Tracey number that had mistakenly been placed in the sale section!’
Dress: Moschino Cheap & Chic
Shoes: Dolce & Gabbana
Where Anastasia Stood: Grandstand
What Anastasia Ate:
‘Not much as the afternoon tea mainly consisted of Champagne! Although there were amazing scones with clotted cream’.
The Biggest Faux-Pas Spotted:
The usual culprits! Too much flesh on show; too much fake tan.
Main trends spied: ‘An array…Colour blocking featured high on the agenda’.
Any GMD dresses spotted? ‘Someone on the train there going to Ascot was in the
‘Carrie’ Asymmetric Halston Heritage dress, which I know we stock, so you never know, it could have been from us!’
Event Drawbacks: ‘Mud on my white D&Gs- everyone was sinking!’
Event Perks: ‘It’s great to see Brits doing dressing for Ascot and the etiquette that surrounds it. It’s not often you get to see this kind of thing anywhere else, so I like that.’
