RACES FASHION: All the best dressed from Warwick Cup

AT THIS year's Warwick Cup Fashion on the Fields runway, it was all about making a look complement itself.

From lace to polka dots to everything in between, Warwick's most stylish took the stage, showing off their flair for fashion and attention to detail.

This year's judging was up to Tony Coates from Riverview Hotel Brisbane, Aly Torrisi from Hello World Stanthorpe, Jacquie Ross from Black Pepper and Tiffany Cullen from Ally Fashion.

Judges were on the hunt for refined couture and perfection from head to toe, even in the rainy weather.

"With the best-dressed lady it's not just the millinery or the dress, it's got to be from her toes all the way up,” Ms Ross said.

"There's no good looking the part and then having an open toe shoe and you haven't got your feet done properly.

"So it's got to be a complete package, it's very difficult.”

Ms Torrisi agreed even the smallest features could make or break a winning style.

"Taking into account the weather, it's been muddy, but the shoes are clean,” she said.

While there were plenty of florals to welcome in the spring season, judges sought out more simple and elegant looks which led them to best-dressed winner Chantelle Cameron.

"We were looking for something that is very classic but stunning. Not too busy,” Ms Torrisi said.

"She had everything.”

Ms Cameron who wore a dress from Melbourne boutique Loreta and millinery by Tammy Lee said she just wanted to be unique with her style.

"I love flairs and I love lace, and I knew florals were going to be in, so I just wanted to wear something really different,” she said.

It was Ms Cameron's first time taking part in the fashion competition but she already knows it won't be her last.

"I feel very lucky. I've always had a passion for fashion,” she said.

"I hear it's addictive so I'll probably be back.”
