Hot favourites rein supreme on Ladies' Day at Down Royal Racecourse
The glamorous dresses and striking headwear were once again on full display yesterday for Ladies' Day at Down Royal Racecourse.
Glitz and style descended upon the course with haute couture and fabulous high heels being the order of the day.
While some were there just to watch the action unfold on the track, others were looking to win the Victoria Square Best Dressed Ladies' competition with a tantalising top prize of £3,000.
The three eagle-eyed judges, House of Fraser manager Michelle Jackson, local hat designer Grainne Maher and Victoria Square's personal stylist, Rebecca McKinney, were on the lookout for ladies who epitomise high-end fashion and style. Lauren Campbell, marketing manager at Victoria Square, said: "Each year we are blown away by the high level of style on show at Down Royal for the Victoria Square Ladies' Race Day.
"The event is now firmly established as the most glamorous date in Northern Ireland's calendar, and the atmosphere makes it a day not to be missed, whether you're an avid racegoer or fashionista."
