Champers with James Bond for this year's best dressed lady at Punchestown

Bollinger Best Dressed Lady 2018, Eimear Cassidy from Drogheda celebrates her first time racing

The winner of this year’s Bollinger Best Dressed Lady award at the Punchestown Festival will partake in an elite mission involving James Bond and his favourite champagne.

The overall winner of the coveted style competition will attend an exclusive invitational screening of the highly anticipated 25th James Bond movie in Paris in April 2020. Bollinger is the champagne of choice for the world’s most famous spy.

In addition, the lucky lady and a friend will enjoy a money can’t buy trip to the Bollinger Estate and Champagne Libraries, France. This trip includes an overnight stay in the beautiful historic town of Reims, the capital of the Champagne region, Michelin dining and luxury overnight stay in Paris, the City of Light. Of course, a private chauffeur, champagne lunch experience and a year’s supply of Bollinger Champagne are a given!

The Punchestown Festival, the social and sporting highlight of the Irish calendar takes place from Tuesday, April 30 to Saturday, May 4 at Punchestown Racecourse, Kildare.

The search for the Bollinger Best Dressed Lady will be held over the first four days of the Punchestown Festival when style scouts will be tasked with finding the most stylish ladies in attendance and selecting a number of finalists each day. The daily winner will then progress to the grand final on Ladies’ Day, held on Friday, May 3, 2019.

Bollinger’s philosophy is that “Life Can Be Perfect”, and the family-owned Champagne House stays true to form with a bespoke prize created especially for the winner of Ireland’s most prestigious fashion title. Bollinger is a great champagne of character whose elegance is reminiscent of the famous special agent and qualities our judges will be looking for in this year’s Punchestown winner.

The Punchestown Festival takes place from Tuesday April 30, to Saturday May 4 2019. The action-packed, fun-filled, style showcase attracts over 130,000 people to the Kildare venue with packages ranging from high-end hospitality to great value admission only tickets available at or by calling +353 (0)45 897704
