The Deighton Cup 2012: The Thoroughbred Race
August 11, 2012
Vancouver was voted as the third worst-dressed city by MSN Travel (partly due to our love for yoga gear as day wear), but when the occasion is right, the city's glitterati do not hestiate to bring out their most glam fashion. Dubbed as Vancouver's must-attend fashion and social event of the summer, the fourth annual Deighton Cup, once again brought to life a mini-Kentucky Derby at the Hastings Racecourse.
From lavish hats and dresses, patterened suits, bow ties and head pieces, hundreds of ladies and gents (including Miss America 2012 Lauren Kaeppler) took part in this old-fashioned day of horse races and champagne sipping. The delicious aroma of a southern-inspired barbecue and the upbeat sounds of live jazz group Maria in the Shower filled the air of this August afternoon affair. Presented by The Adelphia Group, The Social Concierge and Cocktails & Canapes, this event never dissappoints to showcase Vancouver's love for fashion.
