The finals of "Mr & Miss Vintage UK 2018" took place before a huge audience at Twinwood Festival, with ten ladies and five gentlemen taking to the stage, representing the country's most impeccable sartorial standards. The quality of the entrants in our style competition was extraordinary this year, and our judges had very difficult decisions to make. Ultimately, winners were selected and it gives us great pleasure to announce Nikki Redcliffe as Miss Vintage UK 2018, and Robert Oestmann as Mr Vintage UK 2018!
The stupendously-styled Ladies line-up consisted of (from left to right): Jenny Tree, Nikki Redcliffe, Amy Pierpoint, Hannah O'Kelly, Lana Moorhouse, Stephanie Lanora, Lara Kay, Jessica Bonarius, Eleanor Blincow and Ria Barry.
Lara Kay took third place, with Jenny Tree in second place and Nikki Redcliffe was crowned the overall winner!
...and in the Mens competition, our tremendously-tailored finalists were (from left to right): Richard Tree, Barry Whitehouse, Robert Oestmann, Mark Cass and Paul Damien Hammond.
Mark Cass took second place, with Robert Oestmann as the ultimate winner! The other three gents shared a joint runners-up position.
We'd like to extend a special thanks to actress Carli Norris - our guest prize-giver, who also assisted our regular panel in the judging of the finalists.
Carli has starred in numerous top TV productions such as Doctors, Hollyoaks, Holby City and Eastenders, and is also the owner of vintage brand Chocodolly.
We'd also like to give a big thank you to our regular hosts and judges: Dusty Limits, Lola Lamour and Mark Ewing. Also joining the judges panel this year was Victoria Garbutt from Voodoo Vixen. Many thanks also to our stage crew, and finally to our competition sponsors: Voodoo Vixen, Vintage Life Magazine, What Katie Did, The Vintage Suit Hire Company, Shazam!
