Nicky Watson - guest appearance at Mercedes Fashions in the Field

Joining Nicky is 24 year old Nicole Howlett of Howick, Auckland who won a competition to wear another Jeremy Scott gown previously only worn by American socialite Paris Hilton.

Nicky Watson models the specially designed Gillette Passion Venus gown to introduce the inaugural Passion Venus Under 25 Style category as part of the Mercedes Fashions in the Field at Auckland's Boxing Day races.

Nicky's gown was created by US fashion designer Jeremy Scott to launch Gillette's new female razor in New York and shipped to New Zealand to celebrate the new category.
