Nicole Richie and the Golden Slipper


SHE’S a global super star and fashionista with a combined social media following of more than 7.5 million people and now Nicole Richie can add a Golden Slipper to her resume.

Richie has been named international ambassador for this year’s Golden Slipper Carnival at Rosehill Gardens on March 21.

“Coming to Sydney for the 2015 Golden Slipper Festival is such an honour and I am so excited to announce my partnership with the club and be in for the Tooheys New Golden Slipper Day,” Richie said. “I look forward to a day of racing, judging of the coveted Myer Fashions on the Field and of course having the opportunity to meet everyone attending this iconic Australian event.”

Organisers hope the star will attract a young, fashion-conscious crowd to join thousands of already passionate punters who will be focussed on the $3.5 million race.

“We’re delighted that someone with Nicole’s profile will be part of the Golden Slipper,” ATC COO Tony Partridge said. “It was important to us in a year where we changed the programming and put five group one races on Golden Slipper Day and launched a new campaign that we made sure the fashion and celebrity stakes were just as good. Having someone with Nicole’s international prominence and following in Australia was really important to the ATC.”

Richie, who is the creative director of jewellery and accessory label House of Harlow 1960, will join local ambassadors and Myer faces at the event, which is part of the 2015 autumn racing calendar.

Her visit to Sydney is expected to coincide with her husband Joel Madden’s return to Australia for the next season of The Voice Australia.

Richie, Madden and their two children Harlow, seven, and Sparrow, five, have spent a lot of time in the city in recent years, making annual visits in line with the singer’s stints as a coach on the popular Channel Nine singing show.

Mr Partridge said the recent date change of the Golden Slipper would give the event more of a summer feel.

“Now that the Golden Slipper occurs in mid-March it will be during daylight savings, it will be away from Easter and it will be no doubt warmer and we do hope the crowd treats it like a bit of a summer party,” he said.

Autumn racing will begin with Chipping Norton Stakes Day at Warwick Farm, with Royal Randwick’s The Championships Day One and Two on April 4 and 11 among the other major race days.
