There was plenty of action on and off the field at yesterday’s Bunbury Turf Club Stakes Day, with the women ramping up the competition in Fashions on the Field.

Perth’s Khristina Vasko won first prize in the event, winning more than $3200 worth of prizes and the chance to compete at the Ascot Stakes Day in November.

Ms Vasko won the event with her show-stopping outfit from store Net-a-Porter.

“I feel really overwhelmed, I really had no idea and I threw this piece together last-minute and just didn’t know how it would go, but it just worked,” she said.

“The other contestants were really high quality, but yeah, I’m just very chuffed.”

CM Model Management and Fashions on the Field coordinator Tamara Dimov said the women really raised the bar this year.

“The standard was really, really high – the girls were polished from top to toe, from the headpieces to the make up, to the outfit and to the shoes,” Ms Dimov said.

Ms Dimov was impressed with Ms Vasko’s outfit.

“The colours were bright with a bit of orange, which I did say we would have, so really impressed with the standard.

“I loved the pop of orange and the blue, definitely a well deserved winner,” she said.

Ms Dimov said she would now turn her attention to Sunday’s Fashions on the Field at the Bunbury Cup.
