Meydan Madness 2011

Hats off to the best Dubai World Cup – EVER!
Meydan Madness 2011
The atmosphere at Meydan was magic

The atmosphere at the 2011 Dubai World Cup was indescribable. The grandstands were heaving with glamour under the weight of a thousand hats, and Ahlan! Fashion Editor Lucy Wildman described it as the “best dressed year yet”.

Victoria Shelapova was the victor of the Jaguar Style Stakes competition, scooping Best Dressed Woman and a free Jag for a year in a stunning vintage Chanel dress, while Victoire Pisa was the horse of the night, winning the $10million prize pot for the main event in the richest horse race in the world.

Jessie J was the cherry on the cake of a truly memorable night. Despite several sore feet, the crowd rocked with the Brit Award-winner, celebrating the biggest night in Dubai’s social calendar.
