Victoria Pendleton In Emilia Wickstead – Royal Ascot Launch

Victoria Pendleton In Emilia Wickstead - Royal Ascot Launch

Victoria Pendleton has pretty much worn Stella McCartney exclusively since the 2012 London Olympics, but she opted for a different designer this afternoon whilst launching the 2013 Royal Ascot campaign, ‘The Colour and the Glory’.

Brightening up a miserable day in London’s Hyde Park, she donned the Sloane Street, ‘Ladies who Lunch’ favourite, Emilia Wickstead.

Her white, long-sleeve, boat neck, flared dress from the designers Spring 2013 collection was styled with a beautiful pink orchid accented Philip Treacy lavender hat.

I love hat and the dress; both are perfect for such an occasion, but those shoes…*sighs*…I don’t think they are as elegant as everything north of her ankles.

The Royal Ascot will take place this year from June 18th – 22nd.

    I agree that the shoes don’t really work with this otherwise lovely look. OTOH, their nude color makes it fairly easy to overlook them — especially if you squint. ;)
    My word, doesn’t her escort look dapper!

    The shoes are really an eyesore and don’t go with the classy elegance of the look, wish she’d opted for a simple ladylike sligtly off-white/pinkish shoe.

      Me too! I love this look and the shoes are cool, they would have been 10 out of 10 if they’d been orchid pink! :)
      How divine is the hat?

    She looks beautiful! I adore this hat! In fact, I wore this Philip Treacy hat this week for Royal Ascot. I selected the hat before it was even known to be used in promotional materials. Rather than a white dress as here, I paired it with a Roksanda Ilincic dress and ODLR pumps.
