Lucire had marvellous fun at Christchurch’s Cup Week last year, thanks to organizer Angela Stone, who oversaw the fashion events. This year, Angela’s back with the New Zealand Trotting Cup meeting at Addington on November 9 and the New Zealand Galloping Cup meeting at Riccarton on November 13.
   The Addington fashion event, where judges decide on the the best dressed man and woman, takes place all day long in the Lindauer Fashion Marquée, with the final scheduled for 4.30 p.m.
   The best dressed woman receives a return trip for two flying Air New Zealand to London, staying at a Millennium Hotel, and gets the free use of a new Audi car. She also receives her height in Lindauer magnums, a Seiko watch from Pascoes, a gift basket from Christian Dior, flowers from Inwater and a Mods Hair pack.
   The best dressed Addington man receives an Audi Ice Experience (two days of snow driving) at the Wanaka Snow farm, with all meals and luxury accommodation included, a NZ$1,500 Hugo Boss suit from Sergios, a NZ$1,250 TAG Heuer Formula One watch from Nairns Swiss Watch Service, a return trip for two flying Air New Zealand to Sydney for two nights plus accommodation, and other prizes.
   There is also a NZ$4,000 body art award for the best painted body wear.
   At Riccarton, the heats take place on the catwalk next to the birdcage so the public can watch the event all day long. The final is at 3.10 p.m. Riccarton’s best dressed woman receives a trip for two to Los Angeles flying Air New Zealand, with five nights’ accommodation at a Millennium hotel. She will also represent the region at Ellerslie in Auckland for the national final on March 5, 2011, and compete for a prize pool that exceeds NZ$100,000.
   The best dressed man will receive flights for two to Brisbane with seven nights’ accommodation at the Peninsular Beachfront Resort in Mooloolaba.
   This year’s Addington judges include New Zealand Fashion Week organizer Pieter Stewart, while at Riccarton, one of the judges is Ria van Dyke, the current Miss Universe New Zealand.—Lucire staff, with Kip Brook/Word of Mouth Media
