The Deighton Cup is Vancouver’s answer to the historied Kentucky Derby – and attending this year’s event for the first time was a personal thrill for me. But after many hours and more than 500 photos later, I was presented with a quandry. What to highlight?
I’ll be doing several posts to do this special day justice. But because The Deighton Cup is the place to see and be seen, I’ve decided to start with the fashions on display, and especially the hats. Because I’m a hat gal. I even bought myself a new chapeau for the occasion.
Ready to experience my very first Deighton Cup.
Believe me, it was hard not to stop and stare at the gorgeous creations and stunning fashions on both the men and women. And while some people did chose to pose, I also managed to capture some less formal moments during my photo walk. Enjoy!
The butterflies immediately caught my eye.
A stunner of a hat – and an obliging, friendly couple.
A classy, classic look.
I loved his style.
Original and eye-catching.
This hair style was awesome.
Too beautiful not to shoot.
Such an original, but comfortable style.
My friend Kerry sported a custom-made hat.
Loved those suspenders.
Elegant and timeless.
Fun and summery.
Loved the hat and her whole look.
At the end of the day, of course, it’s all about the horses! And I was happy to get this candid shot of a lovely lady in pink happily catching all the action.
Caught up in the action.
