Some of Ireland’s most stylish got together at Leopardstown racecourse recently to launch the Littlewoods Ireland Best Dressed Series at Horse Racing Ireland’s Summer Racing Season.

Surrounded by green grass, winning posts and sunshine guests including Mairead Farrell, Amanda Brunker, Sybil Mulcahy, Sinead Desmond and Maura Derrane compared notes as to what they will be looking for in the quest to find Littlewoods Ireland’s Best Dressed Ladies.

RTE’s Maura Derrane revealed: “When searching for a Best Dressed Lady I always look for individuality, ladies should dress to suit their bodies as oppose to following trend. I love classically cut items but it’s nice to mix it with something dramatic as well.”

Over 20,000 people are expected to visit race meetings this summer where each best dressed lady will receive a €2,000 shopping spree with Littlewoods Ireland while 10 finalists at each meeting will receive a €100 shopping spree each. Worth dressing up for, I think you’ll agree.

Be part of the Littlewoods Ireland Best Dressed competition and meet the celebrity judges at the following race events: Mairead Farrell, Roscommon, Monday 4th July; Amanda Brunker, Wexford, Saturday 23rd July; Sybil Mulcahy, Kilbeggan, Saturday 6th August; Bairbre Power, Tramore, Saturday 13th August; Sinead Desmond, Bellewstown, Thursday 18th August and Maura Derrane, Killarney, Friday 26th August.
