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.
