A TWENTY dollar vintage cameo brooch helped seal a €25,000 windfall at the Curragh yesterday, where Suzanne McGarry, from Sligo, won the Newbridge Silverware Style Icon Best Dressed prize at the Moyglare Stud Stakes.
Inspired by the blue brooch, Suzanne designed her dress of cream scalloped lace over cornflower blue silk, complemented by a disc hat by Galway milliner Edel Ramberg.
"I put my heart into this outfit and it took a few months to get it just right after I bought the brooch," said Suzanne.
Her prize, which will take her to the White Turf races held on the snow in St Moritz in February, also includes €5,000 of Newbridge Silverware.
Many of the fashion hopefuls looked to the Newbridge Silverware Style Icons Museum nearby for inspiration.
