The Bollinger Best Dressed Lady Competition at the Punchestown Festival will be judged by a host of celebrities and fashion gurus this year. Daily judging panels will consist of a celebrity judge and a fashion and social editor or journalist.

The opening day, Tuesday 24th, will see Made in Chelsea star Rosie Fortescue and Sunday Independent Life Magazine journalist Sophie White take to the enclosures to seek out the most stylish ladies in attendance.

On Wednesday 25th, day two of the festival, Dancing with the Stars and GAA Sweetheart Anna Geary and TV personality and fashion journalist Triona McCarthy will be judging.

RTÉ’s Bláthnaid Treacy will judge with Editor Sybil Mulcahy on Thursday 26th.

When speaking of the upcoming event, Sybil Mulcahy commented: “I will be looking out for a lady who looks elegant and confident and I love a pop of colour. It’s a long day so comfort is key and dress for the weather, if its lashing rain a strappy sundress won’t fit the occasion nor will a full length bridesmaids gown. I am really looking forward to seeing all the beautiful style on the day and for me a statement hat to finish an outfit is always a winner.”

The grand final on Friday 27th will be judged by model Aoife Walsh alongside Social and Personal Editor, PJ Gibbons and Bollinger Champagne’s very own Bastien Mariani.

Their chosen winner of the 2018 Bollinger Best Dressed Lady Competition at Punchestown 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 on each day will each receive a luxury goodie bag filled with luxurious treats including Topflight vouchers, race day tickets, Cocoa Brown Tanning gifts and more. Registration is not required for the competition as fashion scouts and judges search the enclosures to seek out the most stylish ladies each day.

Gates open at noon each day and scouting will commence early. Festival organisers are encouraging ladies to be on site from 1pm if they are interested in the Bollinger Best Dressed Lady Competition.

The Punchestown Festival takes place from Tuesday 24th to Saturday 28th of April 2018.
