Fashions on the Field
There will be 5 categories again this year with the Maranoa resident being chosen from any finalist.
Classic: Dont wear cut out tops, don’t have bare midriffs, dont think you can win this one getting up after a big Friday night, throwing something on and stumbling up the stairs. The judges will be looking for classy, matching, elegant, co ordinated and those chanelling Audrey Hepburn or Helen Mirren
Headwear: Seems that fascinators are out (like the floppy disc) and its all about the ‘crown’. Of course, we are a bit behind the times here so fabulous fascinators, dramatic straw hats, florals blooming and stuff that goes with your outfit are all acceptable.
Mens: Dont wear a Borat swimsuit. Bow ties are in. That is all.
Kooky: We know you love this one – anything goes (even the Borat swimsuit). Whacky as you like, you might jag the prize (which is drink tickets – we know our market).
A Maranoa resident can win from any category to take the Local’s prize.
Tips: Pink is the new black this year. We still like the old black, which is, just black. And white goes well with that. The standard is high at Roma Cup and contestants are serious. Except those of you in Mankini’s. We will have fun though, it’s always a spectacle.
PS. Judges are selected from outside the district and some with no fashion sense at all (see pics) so they can’t be accused of favouritism, labelism or nepotism. Some will be open to accusations of not knowing a stiletto from a thong but we hope they may be guided by the rest of the panel.
Our sponsors may give you an indication of our prizes, a great bonus for the glory of featuring in Roma Cup FOF finalists
