Vogue said “I'm so excited to be judging Ladies Day at Punchestown. I love the races, there's always a great atmosphere down there, it's a brilliant day out. The fashion is always amazing and women really make a huge effort so I know I'll have a tough time choosing the best dressed.”

Finalists on each day will receive fabulous gifts that include a €100 Topflight voucher, Bellamianta Tan products, a bottle of Bollinger Champagne and other exclusive goodies, while the overall winner each day will also receive a custom-made Montgomery Millinery hat worth €250, a €200 Topflight voucher and a luxury hamper from Bellamianta Tan.

The format for the Bollinger Best Dressed Lady Competition runs over the first four days of the Punchestown Festival when judges and style scouts find the most stylish ladies in attendance and select a number of finalists each day.
