It’s Gold Cup time again! According to the Great Meadow website it was “on April 3, 1922, eight sportsmen met at the Fauquier Club in Warrenton and decided to organize a four-mile race between flags over the natural walls and fences of the nearby hunting countryside. From its beginning, the race was intended to be a national event drawing ‘the best hunters in America.'” Not only does it draw the best competitors, the hats and outfits worthy of Vogue.
I love shooting the Gold Cup every year. Year over year, the hats and outfits have gotten more colorful and outrageous. This year was no exception. I noticed many more hats with veils this year, and many less small fascinator hats.
Check out one of my hat shoots at the 2015 International Gold Cup.
