The Victoria Racing Club is pleased to announce the 2009 MYER Fashions on the Field Couples' Ambassadors are the stylish and highly fashionable Michael and Lindy Klim. Bringing their passion for fashion to the centre stage, Michael and Lindy Klim were the perfect choice to represent the new Couples Competition being held on Saturday, March 7 on Super Saturday.

The VRC's Acting General Manager Marketing, Daniel Salter said, “They embody everything the new MYER Fashions on the Field Couples Competition stands for - style, individuality, class, confidence and most importantly are a highly fashionable couple.”

Michael a former Olympian and his beautiful wife, Lindy, a former model and Balinese princess, met at the Spring Fashion Lunch at Flemington back in 2004 and are now the proud parents of two gorgeous children, Stella and Rocco. Since his retirement from swimming, Michael and Lindy have launched their own skin care range titled Milk with Lindy now branching out into Milk baby products - both stocked exclusively for Myer.

Myer General Manager of Communications, Mitch Catlin, says the decision to appoint Lindy and Michael reaffirms Myer's longstanding association with the Klim’s. “Since they first met on the catwalk for Myer in 2004, Lindy and Michael have appeared in several Myer events, including most recently the launch of Michael's new skincare range for men. We are delighted to be working the Klim’s again, this time as ambassadors for the Myer Fashions on the Field Couples Competition. Both Lindy and Michael have an innate sense of style and are the perfect ambassadors for this competition.”

Both recognised on the social scene for their immaculate style, Michael and Lindy have become two photographed faces around town and never put a fashion foot wrong. Combining their impeccable style and love of fashion both will be casting their discerning eyes over the entrants in the MYER Fashions on the Field Couples Competition, as judges on Super Saturday.

Judges will be critiquing entrants on their racing style, how their outfits complement their partner, originality, interpretation of current fashion trends, grooming and deportment and of course for the ladies, the essential head piece. Couples will then parade their outfits in front of a panel of VIP’s, celebrities and media to see who will be crowned the first ever, MYER Fashions on the Field Couples winner.

The Couples Competition gives entrants a unique twist on the traditional Spring competition and incorporates both male and female fashions together for the first time.
