|Want to become fashion royalty? Well, you need to materialize a Style Stakes Nominee sash within the Deighton Cup. And there are two different ways you can do this.
Your first choice: keep your eyes out for the roaming judges at the racetrack.These fashion personalities, industry-insiders and style titans will each be tasked with nominating one male and one female Style Stakes candidate prior to 2:00PM on the day of the festival. Be in attendance early, or miss your opportunity to meet one of our judges and secure your sash!
Your second option: swing by our self-nomination area in the Marquee for your chance at becoming a finalist. Esteemed judges will evaluate your derby looks as you take a strut down our red carpet runway. Cheeky smiles, poppin’ personality and outrageously stylish outfits all very much welcomed.
Once the 10 judges have each selected one man and one woman including a number from the self-nomination station, all finalists will be taken up to the main stage in the middle of the event for the grand announcement of the 2017 Belle du Jour and Gallant Satorialist winners. Each winner will receive $500 cash, bragging rights, and the opportunity to become a judge for the year following. Scroll down to learn more about this year’s judges.
