Aintree Ladies Day
It was one of the warmest days of 2011 on Friday, which made it perfect racing conditions for Ladies Day at Aintree Racecourse. The fashion-obsessed women of Merseyside were out en force, barelegged, heeled and booted, ready for the fashion event of the year.
Ladies Day is the one-day of the year, where ladies can grab their favourite stylish gowns and highest heels and hit Aintree racecourse for an afternoon of strutting, slurping champagne and fast paced betting.
Once again the only lady to back in the stylish race stakes was homegrown thoroughbred Mrs. Coleen Rooney who pranced out in a short; pink Azzedine Alala ruffled dress with matching killer peep toe heels. This is definitely one lady who has a lot of fashion rosettes to her name.
Mrs. Rooney wasn’t the only one sporting pink as many women chose to wear shades of pink and red at this year’s event, for example Carly Cole looked effortlessly chic wearing a fuchsia pink shift dress.
Once again, hat wear was the order of the day. From the stylish to the outlandish everyone took part. One lady had a hat decorated entirely with doughnuts! Truly scrumptious! Elaborate fascinators were also on show and feathers were seen in abundance (Carrie Bradshaw has a lot to answer for!)
However the award for best outfit went to Lystra Adams. She won the Matalan Best Dressed Award for her stunning fitted suit teamed with an elegant hat. With it’s feather and rose detailing making her appear like a chic house rider; it definitely was a medal-winning look.
Once again Aintree Ladies Day was a grand, elaborate affair.
