More on Sa Sa Fashion on the Turf

November 21, 2010

Remember we had blogged about SA SA FASHION ON THE TURF?

this was the official banner.

Anyway, the event happened at the SELANGOR TURF CLUB on 31st October. Were you there? Was such a fantabulous day out, and some of the ladies were sporting and dressed up for the occasion!

Here, let us share some pictures from that day…

The grounds… It’s nice to see the ring of pink out there on the turf! I thought it totally befitted the fashion theme for Ladies Day!

Oh, so lovely to have the sponsors’ name on the turf!

Hmmm… pink looks surprisingly nice against the green, doesn’t it?

After the arrival of guests, the day’s program kick-started with the Selangor Race 1, supported by Caudalie Beauty From The Vine Handicap.

We also had the pleasure of having a very special guest grace the event since he was in town during that time to conduct makeup workshops for us.

Top celebrity makeup artist, Mr Kazuya Haraguchi, hails from Japan. The founder of Carriere Makeup Creations and Academy in Japan, Mr Haraguchi is armed with many years of makeup experience, and has collaborated with many international beauty brands.

Under his lead, his team of makeup creators and artists has worked with numerous celebrities in Japan including Ayumi Hamasaki, Nanase Aikawa, Yamada Yu and others; Mr Haraguchi can be said to be an important and highly influential figure who plays a significant role in the world of makeup in Japan.

(On the side, did you know that Sa Sa has collaborated with Mr Haraguchi to create the revolutionary & exquisite foundation product? I’m talking about the Gemstone Aqua-Base Pudding Foundation from Cyber Colors. Have you tried it yet? It’s really really really one of best in foundation texture that you can find! And what’s more, it’s from the gemstone collection which boasts of makeup that not only beautifies you, but also treats and cares for your skin!

and here, DANG DANG DANGMr Haraguchi!

Mr Haraguchi presented two makeup showcases for us that afternoon. He did the first showcase at the Trackview (VIP area), and the theme was Too Much Cawaii…! So Cute!

Here, the ‘finished product’, keke!

Later, he moved over to the public area and conducted his second showcase for the afternoon. For this showcase, Mr Haraguchi’s makeup concept was Tokyo Gal Mood! Here, the master weaving his magic!

Presenting… Tokyo Gal Mood!!

One more shot of the makeup guru with his handiwork…

And, have you ever wondered how it all started…? The Ladies Day and the fashion and hats and all…?

Let me share abit of background with you. Heard of the THE ASCOT RACECOURSE? Now the Ascot Racecourse is a very famous English racecourse. Located in the small town of Ascot, Berkshire, it was and still is used for thoroughbred horse-racing. Even today, it remains a famous English racecourse.

Recognized as one of the leading racecourses in the United Kingdom, the Ascot Racecourse hosts nine of the United Kingdom’s 32 annual Group 1 races. The course is closely associated with the British Royal Family, being approximately six miles from Windsor Castle, and owned by the Crown Estate.

The Ascot today stages twenty-five days of racing over the course of the year, comprising sixteen Flat meetings held in the months of May and October. The Royal Ascot Meeting, held in June, remains a major draw, the highlight being the Ascot Gold Cup.

This Royal Ascot Meeting is undoubtedly one of the most glamourous (horse racing) events held anywhere in the world. It is also most definitely one of the most social and colourful occasions in the British sporting calendar. Tens or thousands of people flock to the venue every year, and tickets are always sold out way ahead.

So if you’re planning to put on that outrageously glamourous hat for next year’s event, I’m not even sure if tickets are still available!

There are three important race days during the five-day Royal Ascot Meeting. The Royal Ascot Meeting always starts on a Tuesday and end on a Saturday. The three most important days of the entire race are Thursday, Friday and Saturday.

The three major days are the Gold Cup on Thursday – better known as Ladies Day - an event with its quality of fashions, racing and pageantry that makes it an occasion not to be missed, along with Friday’s Coronation Stakes and Saturday’s fantastic Finale Day.

Piqued your interest yet? Well, you can click HERE and HERE to read more about the Royal Ascot Meeting and Ladies Day.

And oh, there’re some mighty interesting tidbits about the Royal Ascot Meeting on THIS SITE! For instance, it said, “Lobsters live in fear of the Royal Ascot meeting, with 11,000 of these crustaceans consumed over the course of the meeting. The lobsters are washed down by a staggering 185,000 bottles of champagne.”

Anyway, I think not many people would argue with if I were to say that Ladies Day is the highlight of the Royal Ascot Meeting. If only just for one day, Sa Sa is delighted that it is party to bring the magic of fashion, beauty and glamour to the turf in Malaysia!

Yours in Pink,
The Shiny Happy Peeps
