Vanity Fair Ascot Style Challenge by Ceravelo
Posted on 26 March 2013
Ascot Style Challenge
Are you (and your ascot) up for joining us in a style challenge?
For the first time in history, Vanity Fair has issued an open call for submissions to their International Best-Dressed List™. Get ready to join the ranks of men such as David Beckham, Justin Timberlake and George Clooney, all VF Best-Dressed alums.
Ceravelo believes this is the perfect opportunity to showcase the ascot as one of the modern man’s stylistic weapons. In fact, we have decided to join in on the challenge by offering a free, hand-tailored ascot and pocket square to one lucky contestant. When Vanity Fair announces their winner in July we will select ours and promote you and your style to thousands of our personal viewers from across the world!
Remember, you must be sporting an ascot.
Show Vanity Fair Your Ascot Attire
To join us in our campaign:
1) Get kitted out in your sartorial best, knot that ascot tie and snap a photo
2) Submit your photo using #vfbestdressed #ascottie @ceravelo via Twitter or Instagram
4) Keep an eye on the VF photo gallery, and vote for submissions that showcase stylish ascots
Vanity Fair staffers will be selecting their weekly favorites to feature as Editors’ Picks. Ultimately, one man and one woman will be selected to join the official list and be featured in the September issue of the magazine. Submissions end on June 30, 2013 at 11:59 p.m. ET.
Ascots on the Runway at Fashion Week
Need inspiration? Look no further than New York’s Fashion Week. The Richard James 2013 Fall Collection features as fine a presentation of ascots (and jewel tones) as we have ever seen walk the runways.
As a further assist, our styling crew offers these recommendations:
Make judicious use of color, texture and pattern to express your individual style
Consider modern ascots made from vintage fabrics for a bespoke (custom) look
Focus in on the details to fine-tune your presentation
Let us know when your picture goes live by sending us a direct tweet (@Ceravelo). We will be voting for each of our readers, as well as featuring their entries on our Pinterest page.
