Even the threat of showers couldn't dampen one of Vancouver's most stylish events.
The Deighton Cup was returned for its seventh year at the Hastings Racecourse Saturday, with guests breaking out their most striking suits and dramatic dresses.
Of course, most ladies accessorized with their best hats or fascinators. While the statement headwear shaded their eyes, it's also supposed to bring good luck to gamblers at the races.
The event's best dressed lady and gentleman took home up to $500 in cash prizes and even a snazzy trophy.
The afternoon was marked by bubbly cocktails, exquisite treats, and oh yes, a horse race, but as usual — the fashions really did steal the show.
