A FASHION AND REVIEW AND A FINISH:
ASCOT IN ALL IT’S GLORY
ON SOCIETY’S FIELD DAY
 
ASCOT is proverbially Fashion’s Field Day,
and this year the brilliant colours and artistic effect
of the dresses displayed at the great Society carnival
were even more dazzling than usual.
   Our illustration shows some of the notable 
toilettes worn at the meeting.
 
Lace, which is now enjoying a great vogue
after its long exile from the circle
of la Mode’s favourites,
was the medium in which
many lovely models were expressed.
  
White lace, black lace, and black lace 
over white satin were seen,
and the popular material also appeared
in the shape of cloaks, and formed the foundation
of some of the most successful hats;
while the Spanish shawl was also on duty
as a wrap in some instances.
   
Panniered and befrilled frocks contented
for favour against straight, slim models,
and there was an equal number of each to be seen.
 
Lingerie dresses were also popular,
and it was noticeable that some of the
best-turned-out women wore very low-cut dresses;
while others had frocks with
a high-collared, almost muffling effect.
 
Hats were, for the most part, large and diaphanous,
but the small, “impertinent” model was
not entirely left out;
and the Chinese pagoda parasol was in evidence,
as well as the ordinary variety,
often hand-painted.
 
Black and white, all black, and all white colour-schemes
were very popular;
but rose-pink, blue, yellow, and many other shades
were also to be seen
among the many exquisitely dressed
spectators of the racing.
 
Our illustration gives a good idea
of the varieties in Fashion’s styles,
and also shows the exciting finish of the race
for the GOLD CUP,
which was awarded to Tangiers,
Sir William Nelson’s horse,
which came in second to¬†Lord Astor’s Buchan,
the latter being disqualified for
crossing Tangiers.

Lady donning her double-stranded pearls.
Lady wearing a fashionable hat, stringed jewelleries, lined dress, a furry shawl. This could just be over the top for these modern days. You don’t want to be a walking walk-in closet do you. Sometimes, less is more.¬†
Step Sisters of Cinderella ūüôā¬†
A VISION OF ELEGANCE. If it’s the hat, let the hat stand out.¬†

A lady who fears the sun so much…¬†
Quite plain for ASCOT Standards. However, the colour of the fabric would have been the redeeming feature of this fashion number.
Lady who loves her frills. A bit much though.
DUSTER COAT and the whole works. Hope she ain’t faintin in the heat.¬†
This lady got the FIVE STARS!!! 
Not all UNIQUE items are elegant. Probably a trendsetter in her days. 
This outfit gets the thumbs up. 
Hope the birds don’t find their nest on her.¬†
QUITE unsure of the look she’s going for. Again, quite off for ASCOT Standards of her time.¬†
An ASCOT Regular as you can see. She’s got her look refined to the minimum ASCOT standard of her time. Not too plain, not too gaudy either. Lady GREY comes to mind. Now time for a cup of refreshing EARL GREY.¬†
