Elegant and Understated, Louise Allen lands best dressed prize

10 Feb

Gliding through the Best Dressed Ladies marquee at Leopardstown, flawless personal style shone through. Inspiration came from mothers, fashion icons, the internet and the ladies unique style.

A day at the races or should it be said escapism for the day, is a real treat and something that is profoundly human. People love dressing up. Yesterday offered an opportunity to be creative. We probably would not even have art if human beings did not have the God given ability to leave behind the worries of the day and to paint buffalo on the cave wall. In some ways the ability to escape is a close cousin to the ability to create. The creativity oozed through the outfits and spoke of heritage, cool, rustic glamour, edge, luxury and warmth.


Although no painted buffalo, a well-deserved smile was on the face of best dressed winner, Louise Allen. Wearing a bright tangerine coat with loud black fur trim purchased online and hat by Jennifer Wrynne. Canadian fashion designer, Tara Jarmon was on hand to present Louise with a €7,000 Harvey Nichols voucher and a bottle of Hennessy Cognac.

Maria Osborne from Kildare was winner of the best accessory, selected by shoe designer Lucy Choi.
