Jaguar Style Stakes
Jaguar is proud to be associated once again with the Style Stakes competition at the 2014 Dubai World Cup. The Jaguar Style Stakes, a must for any self-respecting fashionista, is one of the region’s most hotly anticipated events for fashion trend setters, with the winner securing a 2014 Jaguar F-Type for a year.
The judging panel brings expertise from Dubai’s Fashion and Media industry, Alanoud Badr (Fashion Designer, Consultant & Stylist), Jessica Kahawaty (Miss World Runner Up 2012), Joelle Mardinian (TV Presenter & Beauty Expert) and Nicola Gibson (Jaguar MENA Marketing Manager).
The Jaguar Style Stakes judges will critique some of UAE’s most stylish men and women competing for a place in the below categories:
• Best Dressed Lady
• Best Dressed Man
• Best Dressed Couple
• Best Hat
• Most Creative Hat
• Longines Most Elegant Lady
This year the Best Hat and Most Creative Hat categories will be judged side by side at the same time, bringing to the stage an exciting line up of colourful millinery. The judges will once again be looking for original pieces displaying distant creativity and attention to detail in each head piece.
Longines Most Elegant Lady will be exclusively handpicked from the impressive lineup within the Best Dressed Lady category, by our Longines judge. The winner will be presented with a Longines Conquest Classic watch. The watch has a diameter of 29.5 mm, featuring 12 diamonds on a mother of pearl dial and 30 diamonds embedded in the watch casing. The stakes will be higher than ever within this category.
