Our reporter Jenny Kirkham checks out the style at Down Royal race course and finds plenty of trendy people out and about.

Denise Curran (31), occupational therapist/fashion show co-ordinator, Armagh

Wore what? Top, £67, The Edge, Dungannon; skirt, £89, Crystal Boutique; hat, £40 hire,  Caithriona King Milliner at Elite Hats; gloves, vintage; bag, £40, Crystal Boutique.

Why? I'm really big into fashion and love trying new styles. There's very little I wouldn't try on once and would definitely consider myself quite outgoing in my style choices.

Who? Victoria Beckham is so classy and stylish and always looks amazing. I style myself after her in pretty much every aspect, even down to the short hair. I don't really like punk styles like Pink's or anyone like that.

Shannan Lyons (21), health care support worker, Newtownabbey

Wore what? Hat, £14, Primark; dress, £50, River Island; shoes, £27.99, bag, £15, New Look.

Why? I love getting the chance to dress up, but I always stick to more muted colours as they're easier to mix and match.

Who? I love Khloe Kardashian's style because she knows how to dress casually as well as for an occasion. She wears a lot of black, so it's easier to replicate outfits I like. Miley Cyrus wears clothes that are too revealing for me.

Alison Wright (42), dentist, Tandragee

Wore what? Dress, £160, McElhinneys; shoes, £45, Clarks; fascinator, £40, House of Fraser; bag, £16.99, TK Maxx.

Why? I always like to wear bright colours, even when the weather doesn't call for it. I prefer trousers to dresses, they're more versatile and can be worn with different items to create an entirely different outfit.

Who? Katherine Jenkins always looks classy and sophisticated, I definitely like her style. Katie Price is too over the top for me.

  • Monthly spend £200

Georgina Ross (67), retired, Omagh

Wore what? Dress, £39.99, M&Co; shoes, £18.99, Peacocks; bag, £16, New Look.

Why? I love having as much colour as possible in my outfits. I wear what I think looks good on me, not what people say I should be wearing.

Who? Cheryl Fernandez-Versini and Victoria Beckham have amazing style. I love Victoria's straight lined dresses - and the two of them always look fantastic.

  • Monthly spend £60

Rosealeen Mulholland (50), company director, Dromore

Wore what? Dress, £90, Candy Plum; shoes, £120, LK Bennett; bag, gift, Louis Vuitton; scarf, £35, cardigan, £65, Ted Baker.

Why? I like to dress up. I love dresses, especially in the summer when I can add more colour.

Who? Victoria Beckham always looks good. I love the clothes that Vivienne Westwood designs, but I don't like her personal fashion.

  • Monthly spend £500

Suzanne Lucas (26), estate agent, Armagh

Wore what? Hat, £20 hire, Flower Bow; dress, £189, Crystal Boutique, Armagh; shoes, £20, Dorothy Perkins.

Why? I love to mix and match my style between high street and boutique stores. I think that's the best way to create outfits that are unique.

Who? Michelle Keegan has an amazing eye for style. I can appreciate all sorts of style, even if it's something I know I won't wear. I don't like how Katie Price dresses, she's too gaudy.

  • Monthly spend £250

Adele Rea (24), beautician, Newtownabbey

Wore what? Dress, £49.99, shoes, £24, New Look; bag, £30, Accessorize.

Why? I'm usually more of casual jeans wearer and don't usually wear dresses, but it's nice every once in a while to get dressed up.

Who? I love Sam Faiers, and the girls in Made in Chelsea, because they can wear casual clothes and still look dressed up.
