    Aintree is so incredible! It's the perfect mixture of money and tacky to be funny without being sad. Nothing compares to it.

    Ladies Day worst dressed (Warning: this story includes tans, taffeta, huge hats and more woah-there tans)

    Ladies Day looks like a right larf - it's just a shame that some racegoers have fallen at the first fashion hurdle. Don't agree? Vote to save!




    Hat Attack! Are these the most shocking Ladies' Day looks?

    It’s Ladies Day at Aintree – hurrah!
    Some guests have got it oh-so right, see: Ladies Day Best Dressed: More frocks, heels and hats than you can shake a stick at
    And then there’s the WOAH-THERE tans, double-leopardy looks and frocks so fluro they should come with mandatory shades.
    This lot are working the trends and then some! We love them for injecting some fun back into fashion but the key here is looking fashion, not just flashing.
    For that reason alone – sorry ladies - but it’s a Ladies Day ‘neigh’ from us.
    Don’t agree? Good! Vote for your favourite fashionista below and we'll swap her into the Best Dressed list.
    UPDATED:

    And they're off! Are you wishing you were at Aintree too? PA

    LOVE the dresses but the turbo tans? Let's hope it doesn't rain... WENN


    Working those trends like pro's, but double leopardy is a fashion no-go.... WENN

    Horses, schmorses! Here are 3am’s Top Tips for winning the Aintree style race:
    At a very basic level, style is not measured in how many trends you’ve ticked off - or how many labels you’re wearing, but how, with a little ingenuity, you nod to the trends and then tailor them to best suit you (preferably via a well edgy thrift store… )
    The biggest style sin a girl can commit (bar velour) is looking like you’ve tried, like really, really tried.
    Hell, even Aintree success stories Coleen Rooney and Alex Curran have fallen upon try-hard times in the past - be it by quadrupling their trends count in one go, or simply layering up label after designer label...
    But as Col’ and Alex prove today, if you really want to make your mark at Aintree, it’s worth adopting the ‘less is more’ approach to dressing.
    *NO, NOT BY GETTING NAKED!
    DO get dressed up to the nines - be it a fluro frock, LOOKATME hat or sky-high heels - but before you leave the limo, remove a bracelet here or a fascinator there...and maybe get some hot water and lemon on those tan lines and fast…
    This way, you'll have sidestepped fashion overkill completely and come out looking right stylish instead. Yes it is that easy, just ask Coleen (below).

    I wonder if the (very few) dressed tastefully feel out of place?

    It's like a variation on the "People of Wallmart" thread. Jesus, if this is Liverpool's best, I'd hate to see what's L'pool's worst.

    I thought it looked like Camilla too!

    And I had the same thought about the yellow and white striped dress, it looked nice, totally out of place at Aintree.

    I'm in on the Aintree deal if it ever happens, no way am I gonna pass up a chance to go to an event where the goal is to out-tacky everyone else. Aintree is my tacky destiny.

    Oh and I really liked this dress with the skulls, I'd rock it so hard. And I wouldn't even have to be at Aintree, I'd wear it to work on a Wednesday and be like, "What?"

    I would definitely wear that dress too Bee. It's tacky in just the right, fun way. I would totally bum around town on my day off in that dress, lol.

    Custom made. I recognize the fabric though. I bought some a while back with a black background to make a skirt for my daughter. It's sold out here but this is what you're looking for: A Henry De Los Muertos Sugar Skull Mini Calavera Aqua - $9.98 : Little Cherubs Heirloom, Best custom maternity and baby products. Alexander Henry*Mini Calavera. Pattern looks familiar too. I'll see if I can round that up later.
