For your chance to share in almost $3000 worth of prizes at this year’s Snake Gully Cup Fashions-on-the-Field Competition, choose your category and make the most of this year’s great Spring Summer racing fashion.

TO ENTER, simply nominate and register yourself on Cup Day at the Fashions-on-the-Field registration table.


This year’s Snake Gully Cup Fashions-on-the-Field event will feature four categories – Most Elegant Lady, Cutting Edge Lady, Best Dressed Couple and the Millinery Award for best headwear.

Most Elegant Lady

In the Most Elegant Lady category judges will be looking for classic tailoring, accessories that complement each other, all with a Spring Summer influence. Headwear is essential.

Cutting Edge Lady

Judges will be looking for fashion with an edge, an outfit that is ‘on-trend’, but again, with a Spring Summer influence. Headwear is essential.

The cutting edge category is very much about being fashion forward and really expressing your individual style.

Best Dressed Couple

Judges will expect complementary styling when it comes to the Best Dressed Couple category.

Millinery Award

Those entering the Millinery Award category need a statement headpiece.

Complimentary styling is what the judges will be looking for, so make sure your headpiece is carefully considered in your overall styling.

How to Enter

Entrants can nominate themselves on the day with an on-course facility set-up specifically for Fashions-on-the-Field entrants.
