Fashion news….Suzannah ‘Petal Sculpt’ Dress wins Style Award at Aintree….

Journalism student Sophie Fairclough 20, from Formby, won the Style Award at Aintree at the weekend dressed in a striking silk emerald green dress by London based label Suzannah. She accessorized the dress with Christian Louboutin heels and a matching bag. (Judges included fashion legend Jeff Banks) Designer Suzannah Crabb said ‘Sophie looks amazing in my dress – she really deserved to win’.

Sophie won a new car, worth £12,000, a 10-day holiday to Barbados for two and a photoshoot at a top London studio as well as £200 to spend in Cricket and a goody bag from Benefit.

The stunned student said: “I’m so happy. I’m so shocked. “I put a lot of effort into getting ready for Ladies’ Day and had intended to enter the Style competition but I didn’t think that I would win’

The five finalists had been picked out of 1,900 entrants on Ladies’ Day by judges, Sheree Murphy, Emma Johnson, Ricky Whittle, Colin McAllister, Justin Ryan, Justine Mills and Lorraine McCulloch and designer Jeff Banks.

Banks said: “It’s almost got a retro 1950s look. “The emerald green colour is what everyone is predicting for 2011, so Sophie is ahead of the trend.”

The tulip petal sculpt that Sophie is wearing is from £385 and available in scarlet, champagne (pictured below) and black at
