Armagh teen wins in the style stakes at Aintree

By Eleanor Barlow

A Co Armagh teenager took the fashion crown at Aintree on Ladies Day.

Student Robyn-May Quinn won the annual Style Contest at the second day of the famous race meet yesterday.

But, the 19-year-old said she would have to ask for her father's permission before she was allowed to drive the prize, a Range Rover Evoque.

She wore a beige dress with a floral design and a beaded headband with a leaf design.

She said: "I picked the dress pretty quickly and I got the hat designed for the dress."

Miss Quinn said she was at the races with her family and friends and that they had all entered the style contest together "for the craic".

Sophie Gatliff (27), who travelled up from London with friend Lydia Unwin (24) for the racing, said: "Once we have a glass of champagne we'll be fine!"

Among the celebrities out for the occasion were comedian Jason Manford, former Liverpool FC footballers Jamie Carragher and Kenny Dalglish, and reality TV stars from Love Island and the Real Housewives Of Cheshire.
