Hi guys and gals!! So I know it’s been so long since I’ve posted anything, but after the craziness of the Concours I now have much more time to do other things I love (besides my job) like oh so stylish!! The show was such a huge success and it really has everything to do with how hard the whole team works year round on the event. Truly blessed to be working with such a great group!
One of my jobs during the day of show, Concours Sunday, was to style the award presenters… aka the ramp models. I had SO much fun styling them in their fabulous dresses, hats and pearls. The dresses were handmade from Norway and purchased from the store Augustina’s in downtown Carmel. The people at Augustina’s are so wonderful and showed us the entire collection to choose from just two days after they received the dresses from Norway! The stretch lace material made the dresses fit the girls like a glove. My favorites of the dresses were the ones with see through lace sleeves (see photos below).
The hats were of course vintage and had been a part of the Concours closet for many years. They went perfectly with the dresses and made the girls look straight from the early days of the original Paris Concours. Hats to the ladies are like the classic cars to the men at the Concours, so it was important to have our award girls in some fabulous hats. After the girls presented the awards and the Best of Show car was announced, as the confetti settled, a representative from Philip Treacy approached me to talk about future hats to style the models with which was SO exciting. Now if you’re into fashion slash have a mild obsession with the royal family and their hats… and don’t know Philip Treacy, you must look him up! He’s the hottest hat designer in the UK right now and has been creating some of the the most talked about hats worn by members of the royal family and their crowd.

It was yet another very successful event full of the most amazing classic cars in the world and the ladies fit right in with their vintage outfits. Check out some of the pics I took in action on my iPhone that day:

Here I am in the middle with my girls!! They all rocked it and looked amazing, made me so proud! Oh and the girls on the sides in the race track suits—how cute are they!? They presented the awards to the motorcycles in comfy yet stylish fashion. So much fun… Cheers!!
