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!

      +1, he certainly does :)

    Love it from the ankles up too.

    The shoes messed up the look.

    Cute from the ankles up.

    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.

    I actually find the shoes fascinating. I just wish they were as colorful as the hat.

      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.
