    Default Chavscot! It's Aintree 2014!

    And they're off! Fillies in fake tan, fascinators and flashy frocks descend on Aintree for the first day of racing action


    • The opening day of the Crabbie's Grand National Festival saw Liverpool's finest descend on Aintree
    • Leading the charge was local style icon, Coleen Rooney, who wore a hot-pink dress and matching heels
    • Despite the chilly weather, strapless dresses, bare legs and open sandals proved popular with the style set
    • The highlight of today's on-course action is the Dominican Republic Handicap Hurdle at 5.45pm

    Resplendent in a rainbow frocks, eye-wateringly high heels and lashings of fake tan, Liverpool's ladies were out in force as the first day of racing at Aintree kicked off.
    But not everyone managed to pull off equestrian chic, with one racegoer photographed wandering around the course bare-foot before the first race had even begun.
    Others appeared to have indulged in a bit too much champagne while having lunch and were pictured tottering around the course looking a little worse for wear.


    Someone's having fun! A racegoer appears to be a little squiffy after indulging in a drink or two while watching the action on the first day at Aintree

    Indulging: Racegoers enjoyed a drink or two while watching the action on the opening day of the Crabbie's Grand National Festival at Liverpool's Aintree racecourse

    Ouch! While high heeled platform shoes, a perennial favourite at Aintree, proved popular once more, not everyone could handle the pain of wearing them (right)

    Entering the style stakes? Fake tan, fascinators and bare legs proved popular with racegoers arriving at Aintree for the first day of racing




    But not everyone let the side down in either the style or sobriety stakes, with many of the 30,000 strong crowd looking glamorous in summer dresses, bare legs and open-toed sandals.
    Just as popular were all-white ensembles, summer's ultra-fashionable tribal print trend and glamorous scarlet dresses, although most racegoers seemed to have left their coats at home.

    As always, female racegoers cranked up the glamour with plenty of fake tan, voluminous waves and elegantly manicured talons as they went for glory in the style stakes.
    Leading the charge was none other than the city's WAG-in-chief, Coleen Rooney, who plumped for a glamorous hot pink number, which she teamed with platform heels by Christian Louboutin and an elegant up-do.

    And they're off! Smartly dressed racegoers sporting a selection of fabulous hats arrive for the first day's racing at Aintree where the Grand National will take place

    Keeping warm: Racegoers wearing coats and tights like this lady are a rare sight at Aintree





    +48


    +48



    Summer black: While the majority of racegoers plumped for colourful ensembles, some opted for summer's all-black trend instead






    +48

    Bright: A racegoer sporting a bright lime-green dress and boxy black jacket and matching hat gives photographers a twirl as she makes her way into the racecourse



    +48


    +48



    Dressed for the weather! A racegoer shelters under a polka dot umbrella while another stays cosy in a bright pink scarf and furry white coat
    Joining Mrs Rooney on the opening day of the Crabbie's Grand National Festival was Princess Anne, who looked elegant in black suede knee-high boots and a chic purple coat.
    After inspecting the racecourse, the Princess Royal was later pictured shaking hands with the jockeys who, with their mounts, will brave the infamous Becher's Brook during Saturday's Grand National.

    While Princess Anne was elegant, one racegoer who had dressed for the weather was presenter Claire Balding, who sported a typically practical sheepskin jacket and neat black slacks while covering the day's action for Channel 4.

    On the course, racing kicked off with the Injured Jockeys Fund 50th Anniversary 4-Y-O Juvenile Hurdle, which saw Paul Carberry on Guitar Pete see off a challenge from Davy Russell and Clarcam to take the £100,000 prize money.
    Other highlights include the Red Rum Handicap Chase at 4.15pm, the Crabbies Fox Hunter's Chase at 3.40pm and the last race of the day, the Dominican Republic Handicap Hurdle.

    While Cheltenham is famous for pearls and fur, and Royal Ascot for its hats, Aintree has become synonymous with fashionable girls out to have fun in the highest heels they can find.
    Eschewing cosy coats and tights in favour of goose-pimpled bare legs and delicate frocks, Aintree girls are almost as famous for their ability to withstand the cold as they are for their colouful approach to style.

    As with the Cheltenham Festival, organisers refuse to impose a dress code on guests and, beyond exhortations to dress smartly and avoid anything that might offend, say anything goes.
    But perhaps a warning isn't required: Liverpudlians are famous for their glamorous approach to getting dressed and love nothing more than the chance to strut their stuff in the most eye-catching outfits they can find.
    And more is definitely more when it comes to make-up and grooming too, with glossy long locks, honey-toned skin and lashings of lipgloss among the most popular beauty choices.
    Male racegoers aren't immune from the pull of equestrian glamour either, with the majority plumping for dapper suits or a blazer, although some decide to up the ante with a spot of fancy dress.
    Despite the presence of the infamous Becher's Brook on the course, the colourfully dressed Aintree crowd are enough to ensure that as many people watch the Grand National for the fashion as they do for the race itself.

    Too much embarrassing fuckery to comment on, but this woman's feet packed as tightly as humanly possible into her shoes is a stand out.

    It seems a bit tamer this year. Yes, there are the typical orange flamboyant gals but overall I think it's tamer.

    This has me humming Andy Williams' "It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year" out loud.

    Maybe the chilly weather has them dialing down the fabulousness? A few of them brought it, but I hope they kick it up a notch tomorrow.
