The Deighton Cup 2015 | Lucky Number 7
Despite a rainy day prior, we enjoyed the perfect amount of heat to keep all of our fascinators & fedoras in place for the lucky number seven edition (7th annual year) of The Deighton Cup 2015 presented by The Social Concierge, MMG Group, Camber Communications & more.
A day at the Races! The Deighton Cup – Lucky Number 7 was a ton of fun
Kuna Lu & I skipped the insanely long line and headed straight for the Media check-in to get our wristbands, admiring many adorned headpieces, gorgeous floral sundresses, and dapper gents on our way down.
Really enjoyed this creative newspaper fascinator!
Loved that Peacock Fascinator!
We first checked out the Veuve Clicqout VIP lounge for some bubbles & snapped some stylish guys & dolls sporting their best “Day at the Races” inspired looks.
Michael, Jonathan & Guests had their own table reserved in the VIP Veuve Clicquot lounge.
Crystal Carson (Style Director of The Deighton Cup) & I gushing over our beloved mutual friend GT (Ginelle Taylor) who is now the President of Archeology of BC!
The band preparing for their next rousing number.
The sweet smell of cigar smoke filled the air and the jazz band played as we were transported into another time & place with the glamour. Could this really be Vancouver, or were my eyes playing tricks on me? There was not a yoga pant in sight! ?
Having fun with Jacqueline Ryan & friends!
I entered the Style Stakes-Best Dressed Awards, presented by Market One Media Group Inc.hosted by SHAW TV’s Fiona Forbes, where the best-dressed “Belle Du Jour & Gallant Sartorialist” win $500 each at The Deighton Cup. The prize was well deserved and won by couple Lucy Orellana-Lopez & her man Michael Boulet who both embodied the alternative/pin-up/indie version of this award. Michael helped Lucy with the construction on her beautiful hat, both are such a creative couple!
The beautiful couple winning the Style Stakes Awards!

Horses sped by with jockeys riding like the wind during gallops my friend Michelle & her man had their money ($500 each) on #5.
Horses racing like the wind!
Dominique Hanke looking adorable sporting her newest creation (loved this fascinator!) and enjoying some delicious organic cotton candy by Petite Puf! Dom is wearing a beautiful red dress designed by Connally McDougall!
I had fun checking out the Luxury Cars – my fave was the orange Mclaren that Nicki Minaj owns.
Once again my talented Stylist, Raul Manriquez knocked my look out of the park derby style, with a polka dot pant, neck jewels from Holt Renfew, a black blazer and a chrome clutch paired with my newly purchased style specs shades and Moschino timepiece/bracelet by Jeremy Scott both picked up at Mine & Yours on Hornby.

Overall I met some cool peeps, shared some laughs, saw some old friends & enjoyed this event very much! Thanks for having us!!
It was great catching up with Mary Zilba from The Real Housewives of Vancouver who I met through my cousin Christina Kiesel who was her cast mate for Season 1 of RHOV.
Fierce. Fresh. Fleek! This gal has got the 3 F’s mastered.
See you next at Diner en Blanc Vancouver!
