Vogue commented: “I love the races, there's always a great atmosphere down there, it's a brilliant day out. The fashion is always amazing and women really make a huge effort so I know I'll have a tough time choosing the best dressed.”

The Best Dressed is sponsored by Bollinger. The winner will receive a VIP trip for two taking in the Bollinger Estate, Reims and Paris complete with private chauffeur, Michelin-starred dining and luxury accommodation, plus a year’s supply of Bollinger.

The finalists will each receive a luxury goodie bag filled with treats including Topflight vouchers, race tickets, Bellamianta Tan and much more.
