    To be fair, those traveller girls usually have great bods.

    That's because they're about 14 years old!

    Now those traveller girls can bring the tacky level that I'm looking for. I think these were from last year.






    And this lady just reminds me of the rednecks in the finer parts of my hometown in Florida.

    Most of these look like recycled bridesmaids dresses with hooker heels and a truckload of bronzer. I'm with Bee, where's the trash? I mean the good shit.

    And the Fail needs to look up the definition of "chic" because I saw no evidence of it and they used it about 400 times.

    The 'brides' of Aintree: Racegoers take new upmarket dress code VERY seriously as they arrive at Ladies' Day in wedding whites


    • Racing fans dressed in their finest outfits have arrived for Ladies' Day at the Aintree racecourse in Liverpool
    • The event is one of the most hotly anticipated of the racing - and fashion - calendar and attracts huge numbers
    • Anxious to boost the image of the event, Aintree bosses have introduced a 'Chanel-inspired' style code
    • Bookmakers have other ideas and are offering odds on seeing wardrobe malfunctions such as too much cleavage

    By Ruth Styles for MailOnline
    Published: 10:14 GMT, 10 April 2015 | Updated: 13:18 GMT, 10 April 2015


    Teetering in their skyscraper heels and resplendent in dresses that came in every hue imaginable, racegoers were a colourful sight as they arrived for Ladies' Day at Aintree.
    But not everyone opted for a bright look on day two of the Crabbie's Grand National Festival. For many, there was only one way to go and that was bridal, with upmarket wedding-style get-ups taking centre stage.
    Floor length gowns in delicate shades of oyster, ivory and cream proved a hit with the fashion crowd as did wedding-worthy accessories such as sparkling silver heels, pretty netted hats and elegant diamanté jewellery.


    Here come the brides: Many racegoers had taken inspiration from wedding magazines and turned up in bridal-style frocks


    Spring has sprung: A pair of ladies show off gorgeously summery ensembles, topped off with pretty bloom-festooned hats


    Working it in white: Many of the ladies had teamed their all-white ensembles with delicate nude shoes and spectacular hats


    Wedding worthy: A lady arrives in a gold and white embroidered dress (left) while another opts for classic white (right)


    All white now: Ladies arrive in their white dresses, among them one (centre) that looks positively ready for the ceremony


    Wedding party: Ladies in bridal white strike a pose with their friends - many of whom were wearing bridesmaid-worthy frocks themselves


    Glamorous: An excited group of friends strike a pose in the sunshine as they prepare to enjoy their day out at the races


    Wedding party: White was a particularly popular choice with racegoers, as were pastel shades such as cornflower blue


    Glamorous get-ups: Ladies arrive wearing what looks like a bridesmaid's dress (left) and all white ensembles (centre and right)

    Others seemed to have taken inspiration from bridesmaids instead and sported full-skirted looks bedecked with blooms in pastel shades of lemon, periwinkle and peach.


    Bridal though many of the ladies might have been, racegoers certainly didn't let the side down on what is one of the most hotly-anticipated days on the racing - and fashion - calendar.
    As on day one of the annual racing festival, cocktail hats proved a popular choice as did feather-festooned fascinators and broad-brimmed numbers bedecked with silk blooms.
    Beneath them, many dresses erred on the bright side with many ladies opting for flamboyant print, whether florals or ikat, and summery hues that echoed the spectacular sunshine lighting up the racecourse.
    One famous face who joined the throngs of racegoers resplendent in bright colour was Liverpudlian former X-Factor star Rebecca Ferguson who wowed onlookers in her hot pink dress and cocktail hat enlivened with plumes.
    But unlike Ferguson, 28, not everyone managed to get it quite right with some intent on flouting the strict new Chanel-inspired dress code with their abundant cleavage and dangerously short skirts.





    Ready for action: Glamorous racegoer Lydia Brown is all smiles as she arrives for Ladies' Day at Aintree


    Hoping to be noticed: Ms Brown had certainly dressed to attract the attention of photographers in her newsprint dress and scarlet heels


    Uh oh! Ms Brown also fell victim to the day's first wardrobe malfunction when a breeze blew her skirt up to reveal a paucity of underwear


    Great day out: Two ladies burst into peals of laughter as they enjoy their day out at Aintree


    Full length: Floor-length dresses in summery floral print also proved a hit, with many ladies teaming them with summery sandals


    Ladies in red: Along with bridal white, cheerful crimson also struck a chord with the ladies and it proved a popular choice


    Nice dress! A quartet of ladies show off their stylish side as they strike a pose for photographers while making their way into the course


    Colourful: Many of the racegoers arriving for Ladies' Day had plumped for bold brights - red was among the favourites


    Showing some skin: A couple of ladies opted to flash the flesh and showed off plenty of cleavage as well as a few tattoos


    Purple reign: A lady shows off her spectacular Grecian-inspired dress and her matching purple hat


    Stripes galore: One of summer's hottest trends is stripes - and the ladies of Aintree were happy to make the most of it


    Dancing queen: A lady gives the cameras a twirl while crossing the racecourse in her high heels


    On trend: A range of different summer trends were on show, including the ever-popular black and white (left), lace (centre) and print (right)


    Hats you win: Many of the ladies arrived sporting spectacular hats, which they offset with simple dresses


    Looking lovely: Ladies sported a variety of different looks, with black and white, maxi dresses and peplums all proving popular

    Along with low-cut dresses, the clunky platform shoes that have become a Grand National staple in recent years were very much on show as were some unflatteringly tight get-ups.
    Most, however, were simply intent on enjoying the sunshine and, in some cases, the revels with many opting to start their day with a mini bottle of champagne, quaffed with the help of a booze funnel.
    But while many joined in with the fun, the sight of so many early morning drinkers has left bookmakers panicking at the prospect of a bumper payout following Coral's decision to offer odds on such wardrobe malfunctions as falling over while drunk and showing off too much cleavage.
    'If some of yesterday's outfits were anything to go by, we're in for a treat today for Ladies' Day at Aintree,' said Coral's Nicola McGeady, whose company has priced falling over at 1/2 and exposed breasts and bottoms at 2/1.




    Cheers! A pair of ladies, both in spectacular fascinators, enjoy a bottle of Moët & Chandon champagne


    Bottoms up! A pair of ladies enjoy a glass of champagne as they wait for the racing action to start


    Glugging on the go: Ladies enjoy a drink while moving through the racecourse ahead of the first race


    Party! Racegoers are clearly having a great time as they share a bottle of champagne while enjoying the sunshine


    Hello sunshine: Many racegoers appeared to have dressed for August and clearly wanted to make the most of the lovely weather


    Sunbathing: Ladies huddle on a tarmac concourse as they enjoy a drink while topping up their tans


    First faller! A lady's high heels prove unequal to the task of dealing with grass - but at least she's still smiling


    Place your bets! Some of the ladies appeared intent on checking the latest odds on their phones


    Ready for action: Three ladies arrive for their day out at the races sporting pretty dresses in patriotic red and blue


    Colourful: Many of the guests opted for colourful ensembles, including, in one case, an impressively large feather headdress (right)


    Getting stuck in: Some guests opted to get the day off to a flying start with a glass or two of bubbly


    Enjoying themselves: Most of the ladies arriving were anticipating a fun day out on day two of the Crabbie's Grand National Festival


    Coordinating: Several couples and groups of friends opted for complementary ensembles in a wide range of hues


    Comparing notes? A quintet of ladies enjoy a chat as they arrive for a day's racing at Aintree


    Bright spark: Bold colour was a popular choice for the second day in a row with bright pink and pale blue taking an early lead

    'With the sun shining down, we're predicting the hemlines to shorten and the necklines to deepen so we could be in for a big payout by the end of the day if our odds are anything to go by.'
    Such episodes are something Aintree bosses had hoped to avoid this year, with the strict style code just one of a raft of measures designed to add some class to the image of the event which has suffered in recent years.
    Along with expecting 'Chanel-inspired' get-ups from female racegoers, the management has also threatened to kick out any photographers caught taking photos of drunken racegoers.
    'Our event is full of character, it’s fun, and that’s generated by the personality of the Liverpool people,' said Aintree managing director John Baker in the run-up to this year's event.
    'We have to absolutely protect that because it’s at the core of what we are, and we have a responsibility to our customers to project the correct image.'

    Eye-catching: A trio of brightly dressed ladies and a glamorous woman in black strike a pose for the cameras


    Strapless: With the sun shining down on Aintree, many of the ladies opted for bustier-style dresses


    Having a laugh: A pair of ladies dissolve into fits of laughter as they enjoy their day in the sunshine at Aintree


    Dressed to the nines: A trio of racegoers show off their style nous as they arrive for a day out at Aintree


    Good day out: Excited racegoers were clearly looking forward to their day out and were all smiles as they arrived at the racecourse


    Lovely: Many of the ladies opted for summery shades such as coral, while others kept things coordinated in navy and cream, and purple




    Looking good: Local girl Rebecca Ferguson wowed onlookers in her bold pink dress and jewelled purple pumps








    And they're off! A group of ladies show off their race day looks, several complete with gorgeous cocktail hats featuring plenty of feathers


    Having a ball: A lady looks wonderful in pink and white florals while right, a quartet of ladies blow a kiss for the cameras


    Mono mania: A quartet of ladies arrive dressed in chic all-black ensembles, with one, unusually, opting for trousers instead of the usual dress


    Final touches: A lady, who appears to have entered the racecourse's style competition, applies a final slick of lipstick


    Making an entrance: A lady inspects a stall selling cut-price fascinators as she prepares to make her entrance


    Quirky: One lady showed off a rather unique sense of style courtesy of pair of fun Bambi-inspired heels


    Sunshine: Racegoer Lydia Brown strikes a pose in front of the fountain that sits at the entrance of the Aintree racecourse


    Final preparations: A Jockey Club employee puts the finishing touches to the racecourse as the first ladies arrive

    Tenterhooks: Earlier, the lady had looked nervous while watching the second race of the day, the Doom Bar Maghull Novices' Chase


    Delighted: Her horse was clearly the eventual winner and Cyrus Darius' romp home to victory left this lady looking utterly thrilled


    Well done! A lady looks delighted as her horse romps home but her friend looks less pleased


    Break to pose! The ladies left drinking and sunbathing alone briefly while waving cheerfully at a passing photographer


    Steady! A lady needs some help getting off Aintree's racing simulator, but a bride-to-be had no problems hanging on


    Taking the weight off: One lady's heels proved too much for her to handle - luckily, she brought comfy flip flops along as well


    Hello boys! A posse of men show off their eye-catching suits, including ones featuring the Union Jack and the Stars and Stipes

    Clearly taking the new style guide seriously, many had opted for get-ups that wouldn't have looked out of place at a wedding - whether as part of the bridal party or as the bride herself.
    Floor length gowns in delicate shades of oyster, ivory and cream proved particularly popular as did wedding-worthy accessories such as sparkling silver heels, pretty netted hats and elegant diamanté jewellery.

    YEAH, IT'S A REPEAT, BUT RAINBOW CLOWN LADY DESERVES TO BE HERE TWICE


    Pale and interesting: It wasn't all cream and white ensembles. Some of the ladies opted for delicate blush and cream instead


    Striking a pose: Racegoers appear to be enjoying themselves as they prepare to watch the action unfold at Aintree


    Making a statement: A lady in a bold orange dress picks her way across the paddock


    Checking the form: A pair of racegoers check out the line-up as they wait for the runners to enter the parade ring

    Those guys in the awesome suits are what Aintree is all about, everyone else in their fucking beige, pink and navy needs to GTFO.

    Clown Lady also brought it, she knows what's up.

    Away from the course, there was plenty to see on the sartorial front too, with lady racegoers pulling out all the stops to ensure they made a big impression.
