Coronation Street actress Michelle Keegan will lead the judging panel for the Boodles Most Stylish Lady at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby.

The competition will take place on Derby Day at the Curragh racecourse on Saturday, June 29 next.

The winner will receive a luxury holiday for two to Dubai, courtesy of Dubai Duty Free, with flights, accommodation in the five-star Jumeirah Creekside Hotel, €1,000 to spend at Dubai Duty Free plus a stunning piece of jewellery from Boodles.

The actress, who plays Tina McIntyre on the soap, shared some of her racing style tips at the competition launch.

The Corrie star said a hat is a must for the races, and the right jewellery can provide the perfect finishing touch to an outfit.

And though the actress herself is known for her love of a fake tan, she says: “When it comes to day time racing, less is always more when it comes to make up and it is important to let your natural beauty shine through and make sure you haven’t overdone it!”

She also recommended breaking in a new pair of shoes before wearing them to the races.

Interested ladies can now pre-register for competition in association with Boodles at www.curragh.ie, and receive a free goodie bag, or they can wait to be ‘spotted’ on the day.
