Reality show judge Ian Mbugua will take up a new job as a judge but this time as a fashion
He will be joined by Millicent Ogutu, a popular actress at Phoenix Players.
Ian said, “These will be worn by a significant number of competitors in the Concours d’Elegance while they parade their cars and motorcycles for judging. The costume contest adds to the status and style of the event and is a popular gathering point for spectators in the Racecourse grand stands. It is hoped that as many entrants as possible will enjoy competing for the lavish awards.”
He continued: “The choice of outfits has been left entirely to the competitors, but as the event is sponsored by AccessKenya Group and hosted by the Jockey Club, contestants are welcome to illustrate an Internet, or horse racing theme. Concours entrants are also welcome to wear costumes that suit their vehicles, or a festive touch linked with the prizes of wine.”
The fancy dress category at the Concours is one of the attractions that add spectators’ interest and they look forward to seeing varied and imaginative costumes worn by the entrants at the Nairobi Racecourse.
The 2011 Concours will be the 41st in the annual series organized by the Alfa Romeo Owners Club.
