Dubai’s racing calendar concluded on Saturday with an exceptional turnout at the 2014 Dubai World Cup. Once again, the world’s richest horse race attracted the very best international and local talent from the world of horse racing along with hundreds of Dubai’s dedicated fashion followers, all hoping to claim the best dressed accolade at the Jaguar Style Stakes.
Sarah Jayne Heart was named the overall Jaguar Style Stakes Best Dressed Lady and was chosen from hundreds of entrants by an expert judging panel. Sarah Jayne Heart is pictured next to Jaguar’s award-winning sports car; the Jaguar F-TYPE Convertible with Bruce Robertson of Jaguar Land Rover MENA, which she will have the use of for one year.
Additional prizes in other award categories were presented by Jaguar and additional sponsors including HTC, the Meydan Hotel, Bab Al Shams Desert Resort & Spa, Meydan Beach and Nstyle.
Following a busy day on the judging panel of the Jaguar Style Stakes, Nicola Gibson, Marketing Manager for Jaguar MENA commented; “Over the past four years as a judge I have witnessed a magnificent display of fashion and creativity. Each year I can really feel the enthusiasm and passion that participants have for the event. The stakes literally do become higher each year and it is great to see Dubai’s ladies, and gents, make such an effort with hats, fascinators, beautiful dresses and smart suits. The Style Stakes continues to be a perfect brand synergy for Jaguar as it embodies the same combination of style, elegance and grace, and we look forward to working closely with Meydan for future endeavours.”
