We have been oohing and ahing over these photos from the VeuveClicquot and Genevieve Magazine’s“Fashion & Style Day Out” at The President’s Cup at Lagos Polo Club in Ikoyion Sunday, 19th January 2014.

Lagos fashion lovers dusting off their finest frocks and mingledduring the one day racing festivities. A first of it’s kind in Nigeria, Genevieve Magazine had prior to the event announced the ‘Ascot dress code’ and there was‘style police’ patrolling the grounds as awards were given to the ‘Most Sauve Male’, ‘Best Dressed Female’ and ‘Best Dressed Couple’ attendees.
Ladies showed up in dramatic hats, fascinators and perfectly tailored, luxurious fabrics and accessories in simple silhouettes. As for the men, some of them dished out some cool dapper style!

Another highlight, amongst several of the event, was the presentation of medals and gifts given to ‘Most Elegant Female’, ‘Best Hat, Best Accessory’ and more.

Everyone put an effort into their ensembles, which can only mean one thing: scene-stealing style and huge hats.
Also, during half time, guests had fun wandering across the field stomping the torn up turf while also socializing, you know just like we saw Julia Roberts and Richard Gere do in the 1990 American romantic movie “Pretty Woman”.

Some of the winners include; Osas Ighodalo – Best Dressed (Female), Omawunmi Akinnifesi – Best Hat, Ene Maya-Lawani – Most Elegant Female, Gbemi Olateru-Olagbegbi – Most Elegant Hat, Kazeem Suleiman – Best Dressed (Male), Taryor Gabriels – Best Dressed (Male), Olumide Ogunnusi and Victoria Uilyams – Best Dressed Couple.
