How to get a head start on Ascot Ladies' Day: Race-goers bring out the pageantry - and sunshine - with My Little Pony and owl-themed outfits

The sun came out in time for Ladies’ Day of Ascot – and the fashionistas simply bloomed.

Some race-goers went the extra mile to turn heads at the Berkshire event yesterday.

One pink-haired attendee opted for an equestrian-themed hat featuring plastic My Little Pony toys on a faux grassy paddock, matching her green dress.

Elsewhere, an owl-themed outfit had fellow race-goers all a-twitter.

Others chose hats with explosions of random colour that stood out against the summer sky.

Gemma Mattison, from Birmingham, had a large red rose as a hat and said she wanted to make a statement at the event.

The 41-year-old said: ‘I always have a classic look when I come to Royal Ascot but this time I thought I’d go all out – it’s now or never. So I’ve come as an English rose.’

Milliner Vivienne Jenner, who wore the large-brimmed lattice hat she designed and made, said: ‘It’s very lightweight as its made from wire work and the flowers are made of feathers, so it’s very easy to wear.’

Celebrities including singer Katherine Jenkins, footballer Michael Owen and model Jerry Hall were also at yesterday’s meeting. The event runs until tomorrow.
