    • Thanks , Kim. I was once chosen for best dressed man at a race festival despite dressing in the dark and very hungover. The judge who chose me was the top designer in Gucci, Paris and he was Irish. As for me, well, I was embarrassed, particularly when he threatened to withdraw if I did not get the award. It was a Mexican standoff – a journalist who could not accept the award, a sponsor who wouldn’t give it to a journalist and a judge who wouldn’t give it to anyone else but the mismatched journalist. And all that with a hangover. In the end it was agreed I’d be invited to a dinner with the judges and get a bottle of vintage champagne as a consolation prize.
