I was delighted to help judge the 'Carton House most stylish lady' at Fairyhouse Races with Vogue Williams on Easter Monday.
It was my first time to be a judge - very exciting but a little more difficult than I thought!
On Easter Sunday, we were treated to a night in Carton House hotel in Maynooth. Everything about the hotel was exceptional, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.. I'm looking forward to booking a night there again soon!
On Easter Monday, when we got to the races, I was taken aback by all the beautiful style. All the ladies were dressed so elegantly - The outfits were very well put together.
Each lady entered the most stylish lady competition by getting their picture taken and filling out their details. Myself and Vogue wandered through the crowds, admiring the style. We then went through each of the entries to pick out the final 10 (a very difficult task - we found it hard to narrow it down to 50, not to mention 10!)
The theme for the day was 'Elegantly Irish'. Vogue interviewed the ladies on stage - each describing their outfits (where they got them etc). These were the three finalists...
The winner of the €8,000 prize for Carton House hotel was Ciara Murphy from County Meath. Isn't her outfit stunning? I loved her mix of creams and golds - I thought she was the picture of 'Elegantly Irish' .. What do you think?
