LADIES Day at Cheltenham Festival may be a slightly more low-key affair than the equivalent at Royal Ascot – but the women pulled out all the stops with their stylish outfits.
Women arrived on day two of the racing meet with extravagant headpieces and colourful frocks and were certainly dressed to impress despite the strong winds.
While Ascot may have a strict dress code, Cheltenham doesn’t have formal guidelines, meaning guests can opt for more daring looks to stand out from the crowd.
Thousands of racegoers have flocked to Cheltenham Racecourse today for the action in spite of threats this week that Ladies Day would be cancelled due to wet and windy conditions.
Not to be deterred, the glamorous women put their best foot forwards wearing snug coats and carrying umbrellas to keep any rain away from their blow-dries.
As strong winds from Storm Gareth swept in, women could be seen holding onto their striking hats so they didn’t blow away.

Attendees yesterday may have opted for a more casual country style, with tweedy outfits, women certainly upped the fashion stakes today.
Revellers could be seen pushing the fashion boundaries in a hope to catch the judges’ eyes for the Best Dressed Award.
Of course champagne was the order of the day at the iconic meet, with the glamorous ladies seen sipping on Moët in high spirits.
It may not be Royal Ascot, but the Ladies Day is expecting a member of the elite family to attend.
The Duchess of Cornwall, who is an Honorary Member of the Jockey Club, will present the trophy to the winning Owner, Jockey and Trainer of The Queen Mother Champion Steeple Chase.
Simon Claisse, Clerk of the Course at Cheltenham and South West Head of Racing for The Jockey Club, said this morning: “We are delighted that the weather conditions have changed from the initial forecasts and the prospect of higher wind speeds and gusts have receded.
“We are looking forward to a fantastic day’s racing on the Old Course with the feature race the £400,000 G1 Betway Queen Mother Champion Chase.”
