More than 60,000 people attended Ladies Day yesterday at Royal Ascot as the new sartorial rules were put through their paces.

The Lady’s Katy Pearson and Fiona Hicks joined Sir Bruce Forsyth, Katherine Jenkins and Karren Brady for a day of horses, racing and fashion.

In an attempt to raise standards Royal Ascot released a strict new dress code rules earlier this year. The revised rules meant hats were once again compulsory, strapless dresses were banned and modest hem-lines required.

Our ladies had front row seats for a series of stunning fashion shows in the Beresford Restaurant. New designs from the cream of the British fashion crop, including Amanda Wakeley, Giles Deacon and Dame Vivenne Westwood were seen on the catwalk.

A classy affair all round – even guide dogs were seen wearing fascinators.
