Best Dressed 2012
A top team of fashion experts were on the lookout for the most stylish vintage ladies and dapper gents over the 2012 Goodwood Revival. Our Best Dressed Man and Lady Awards saw the most stylish ladies and gents selected by a panel of judges and the winners took home our new Goodwood Style Guide, the finest Veuve Clicquot champagne, Singleton of Dufftown malt whiskey and flowers.
Take a look at the best dressed competition Judges:
Fashion photographer and creator of Men's File and Men's File Archive, Nick has been involved in the Revival style scene since the late 1970s. Clements' expertise cover the full gamut of vintage style and includes all elements of fashion associated with period cars, bikes and bicycles. It was Clements, in the role of Editor, who partnered Dan Black in the creation of the Goodwood Style Guide.
Renowned fashion photographer, Matt Hind is one of the main contributors to mid-century style journal Men's File.
Mr Hind is the principle photographer covering the Best Dressed event. Not many organisations can boast a current Vogue photographer as part of their team but, as usual, Goodwood is the exception.
As the Art Director of Men's File magazine and designer of Goodwood's latest book – the Goodwood Style Guide – Dan is ideally placed to judge the Best Dressed Competition at The Revival. A dedicated Revivalist himself, Dan is an expert on male subcultural dress of the 1960s.
Classic motor-sport journalist and specialist art-director, 'Jules' Balme brings knowledge of classic cars, fashion and sub-culture to the judging. An individual of great style, Jules has been a (period dressed) visitor to the Revival every year and we are now delighted that he is playing an official role in the proceedings.
A motoring journalist and real-life leather-girl, Sarah is a prime mover in the British Rocker Revival scene and has a large stable of motorcycles and cars that include American hot rods and fast British twins. There are few in this country more qualified to judge the Best Dressed Competition at the Goodwood Revival.
A leading light in the very high-end of London bespoke tailoring, Ms Caswell is the coat-maker at Timothy Everest and can literally make you anything out of fine cloth. More importantly, Annika has a vast 1940s wardrobe and is never 'out of character' as a bright young thing of the pre and post war periods.
Also, known as Miss Pandora Pitstop, this Goodwood regular is one of England's most important arbiters of Revival style for women. Seldom out of period dress, Pandora alternates her transport between a 1950s Royal Enfield motorbike and bicycle from the same manufacturer. Familiar with both automotive and fashion history, Ms Pitstop is the perfect choice to judge the Best Dressed competition at the Revival.
