Ladies Visiting 2011 Salon Prive Could Win £7,500 Ring
Thursday June 23 is the event’s annual Ladies’ Day, and in order to lure wives and girlfriends along to the “motoring garden party”, the organisers have added a different sort of star attraction.
Following the saying “diamons are a girl’s best friend”, something that doesn’t have a number plate and doesn’t need a garage will be offered as a prize from Boodles, which is hosting the Ladies’ Day event: a £7,500 “Raindance” diamond ring for the best dressed woman on the day.
If you were wondering what to wear on the busy day that envelopes eating lobster, drinking champagne and gazing at Ferraris, Maseratis and other exotics, Salon Prive has a bit of a dress code: “Hats, heels and summer dresses” to catch the eyes of the judges.
Celebrities spotted at previous events include the supermodel turned car nut enthuziast Jodie Kidd, so a pair of long legs should come in handy.
“Always carry a shawl which you can tuck into your handbag. If you don’t use it to keep warm as the sun goes down, they are great for placing on a cold seat for extra warmth and comfort while you watch the event,” Anna Bance, founder of www.girlmeetsdress.com, suggests, adding that key dress trends include floor length, bright colours and bold prints.
