REVEALED: Celebrity designs for Glorious Goodwood!
When I first heard that Kate Moss was going to be designing a set of jockey silks for Glorious Goodwood, I have to admit, I was a little sceptical. Yes, the supermodels range for Topshop did gloriously well (sorry) but a jockey outfit?!
Kate's bright pink design is quite traditional - I expected something a little more rock & roll, maybe something black with a little fur or sparkle. I suppose it is flashy with its lightning bolts across the chest and sleeves, and it looks like a stereotypical riders jacket, don't you think?
The 38-year-old model isn't the only famous lady you'll recognise on the list of designers; everyone from Pearl Lowe and Mossy to Amanda Wakeley and Luella Bartley has contributed silks for the charitable event. Jasmine Guinness told Grazia, that she loves designing colours for the Ladies Day race, describing it as a "designers dream!" whilst British model and winner of last years race, Edie Campbell said, "I'm probably mad to be returning as I can't do any better than last year but I couldn't resist a chance to be involved in such a fun experience that raises so much money for charity."
In comparison to the jacket and hat designed by Kate for fellow model Rosemary Ferguson, Edie's silks are far more fashion forward; hardly surprising when you realise Vivienne Westwood designed them! We have a feeling she'll be the most stylish jockey on the racecourse.
Radio One DJ Sara Cox (who will be dressed by Issa's Daniella Helayel) and jewellery designer, Phillippa Holland (who will sport designs by Sadie Frost's company, Frost French) are also amongst the names competing in this year's celeb filled race.
