The excitement of the action on-course was matched only by the glamour off it at the Epsom Derby festivals Ladies Day today, with British supermodel Erin OConnor leading the fashion pack as the face of the festival.
Judging the annual Style on the Downs competition with milliner Louis Mariette and designer Felicity Brown, the trio of fashionistas faced a tough task choosing the most stylish person in attendance.
Any lady wearing a hat or fascinator was eligible to enter but the judges finally agreed that Mimi Theobald was the worthy winner.
A milliner, Mimi combined a beautiful sunshine-yellow vintage 1950s dress bought from Ebay with a hat she made herself.
The other iconic winner on the day was Dancing Rain who took the Investec Oaks in style.
Tomorrow, Derby Day, is set to be another scorcher with the Queens horse Carlton House favourite to win the main event.
