In 35 degree heat, forty-five fashion enthused ladies strutted the stage at Ascot Racecourse for another year of the 2009 National Myer Fashions on the Field WA Finals.
Hosted by Basil Zempilas and judged by a panel of style savvy personalities; 2008 Miss Universe Australia, Laura Dundovic, Ray Costarella, Kerry Davenport, Aly May, Claire Davies, Rebecca Thompson and Katie Flockart, the ladies were critiqued on their style and originality, appropriateness of their outfit for the occasion/climate, interpretations of the latest fashion trends and grooming and deportment.
Laura Dundovic, who was wearing a hot pink Charlie Brown dress and hot pink hat, said, “This is the best dressed top 12 we have seen across the nation.”
This year’s winner was Elizabeth Pollard, a medical student from Burswood:
Elizabeth wore a Nicola Finetti skirt, Alannah Hill blouse and an exquisite hat by Passchendales Accessories. Elizabeth won a $1,000 voucher at Myer and a $10,000 trip of a lifetime to Melbourne for two to attend the 149th Melbourne Cup Carnival and to represent WA in the Myer Fashions on the Field National Finals on Crown Oaks Day.[cincopa 10510434]
