It was my first time going to the Dubai Gold Cup in Meydan and it was so much fun! People really made an effort to dress for the occasion and I was amazed while scouring the crowd at the dresses, suits and incredible fascinators and hats. They had the Jaguar style stakes where the best dressed won a Jaguar for a year. I loved Natalia Shustovas outfit, I felt she was a more deserving winner of best dressed but she won best hat. Sophia Ismayeva was also a favourite for me, she rocked that royal blue like a queen and I’m not just saying that because she’s my buddy :p
The races were really fun to watch live, the horses whizzed past us at lightning speed. When Sheikh Hamdan’s horse “Prince Bishop” won, the crowd went wild and the fireworks display began. It was the best display I had ever seen, it lasted a full 10 minutes and featured UAE flags, hearts and they even managed to spell out UAE in fireworks, it really was breath-taking and Kylie Minogue was the icing on the cake. She performed a fabulous set laced with classics such as I Should Be So Lucky and Spinning Around as well as tracks from her new Kiss Me Once Album. What a great day out!
