A DAY at the races is not complete without stunning fashions, outfits, hats and fascinators.
Despite the cool weather, the fashions on show at the Leeton Cup on Saturday were weather-appropriate and stylish all in one.
This year's fashions on the fields winners were:
- Most elegant lady: Kerry McWhinnie
- Best dressed gent: Eddie Mills
- Best dressed couple: John and Theresa Gray
- Millinery: Shelley Pollard
- Best dressed girl: Mia Ryan
- Best dressed boy: Sebastian Walsh
Strict guidelines must be adhered to by participants in the fashions on the fields competition.
These include having certain props and wearing certain pieces as part of an outfit.
Fashions on the field co-ordinator Rhonda McCormick said this was sometimes participants weren't aware of.
"There is a judging criteria, which helps the judges choose the winners," she said.
"To be eligible you need to be ticking those items off.
"There's a big difference between spring racing wear and autumn racing wear."
The Leeton Cup is an autumn racing event, so that is what the guidelines reflect.
Mrs McCormick said the category the judges found most difficult in 2019 was the most elegant lady.
"They got it down to the top three and then found it very hard from there," she said. "Overall, it was another great day for the fashion.
"We're happy with the support."
