Champagne, hats, fascinators, cigars and horses. The Deighton Cup, held last weekend at Hastings Park, was truly the best looking event of the summer. Billed as a “good old fashioned day at the races”, this three-day event included a Friday night “Big Smoke” cigar lounge and Sunday afternoon “Julep” day. But the big Saturday event – entitled “Thoroughbred” – was a stylish feast for the eyes as Dapper Dans and pretty ladies everywhere went the extra mile to win, place and show off their best couture looks and millinery masterpieces. Thank you Deighton Cup for dressing up Vancouver – we’ve never looked sooooo good!
