    Epsom Ladies' Day sees fillies in fascinators and fancy frocks descend on the Derby | Mail Online

    Are you sure that's allowed at Epsom? Tattoos and piercings at Ladies Day as fillies in fascinators and fancy frocks observe the code: hats, frocks... and fizz!


    • Bold blooms, big hats and modest heels reigned supreme among the elegantly dressed female racegoers
    • However Emily Wood, a 25-year-old tattoo parlour owner, chose her own risqué look
    • It didn't break the dress code - however fellow racegoers criticised the body art for looking 'cheap'

    It is still thought of as a chance for women to show off their good taste in fashion. So more than a few racegoers got the needle yesterday when Emily Wood turned up for Ladies’ Day at Epsom sporting all-over tattoos.

    While other women donned expensive gowns and chic headwear, Mrs Wood, 25, also wore a very short skirt, 6in platform shoes and facial piercings. But she was allowed in to the venue because her risqué look did not break the dress code.

    In contrast to Royal Ascot, which requires female racegoers to wear formal attire and a hat, Epsom – where the Derby will be run today – is less strict.
    However, Mrs Wood – who attended the Derby festival meeting with husband David, 40, and friends – may have had a motive for showing off her body art.

    The former pupil at £14,000-a-year Sutton High School owns a local tattoo parlour, where her clients include several famous footballers. Tattoos have been increasingly on show at Ladies’ Days in recent years, sparking a debate over whether they lower the tone.

    Wendy Farrow, 50, a sales assistant from South London, said: ‘I don’t like these tattoos at Epsom. It spoils people’s outfits and looks a bit cheap. I’ve been coming here for ten years and I remember it used to be a more pleasant experience.

    ‘A lot of girls are getting drunk and being sick in the toilets. I can’t remember it being like that before.’

    Getting under the skin of racegoers: Emily Wood at Epsom yesterday



    Stunning: Beautifully dressed racegoers Katie Readman, Lavinia Brennan, Martha Ward and Lady Natasha Rufus Isaacs at Epsom







    Glamorous: (L to R) Lisa Tan, Angela Menz and Kelly Odell (left) embraced the dress code with knee length hemlines, pretty floral prints and peach



    Classy: Racegoers were pretty pastel designs that wouldn't look out of place in Kim Sears' wardrobe

    Someone's having a good day! One suited and booted male racegoer larks around with two ladies on stilts

    All white! Four female racegoers opted for classy and figure hugging white and cream designs

    She's a winner! One brightly dressed racegoer celebrates her win with a glass of champagne and some loud cheers

    Here they come! A group of women cheer on their horse in The Princess Elizabeth Stakes






    Sunshine: Spirits ran high as the racing kicked off, with the glorious weather adding an extra jubilant feel to the day

    Winners: Racegoers in the Royal Enclosure react after their horse won the third race of what is one of the most hotly anticipated days in the racing calender

    But the Derby has long been a traditional gathering of uber chav travellers/pikeys as these fashionistas prove. I still reckon the scousers at Aintree do it better.

    Epsom Ladies' Day sees fillies in fascinators and fancy frocks descend on the Derby | Mail Online





    Good day out: A hen party arrived at Epsom Downs for a day out and to watch the big race of the day, the Oaks at 4pm
    Quirky: One group of racegoers jazzed up their demure outfits with some funky pink sunglasses during Ladies Day at the Investec Derby Festival



    For those standing at a low vantage point the speed of the horses could make it difficult to distinguish which you had placed your bet on






    Stripped down: A few racegoers took advantage of the warmer weather today to don a slightly shorter skirt and some seriously big heels




    Combining of two of the key trends of the day these spectators chose to wear statement hats in muted pastel shades






    Enjoying the sunshine: Racegoers watched the races with a cooling glass of Pimms in their hands as they basked in the glorious sunshine



    And they're off! Eager spectators wait for the start of the first race of Ladies Day as the iconic racecourse became a sea of fascinators







    Looking good: Edward Stanley, the Countess of Derby and the Earl of Derby (left) and racegoers Bunty Rowbotham and Eloise Smith (right)

    Four fillies pause for the camera in the vast crowd gathered today at the ancient racecourse




    Two young ladies take a break from all the excitement (left) and a woman sports a fascinator seemingly inspired by nature



    Four young ladies dared to bare their legs in tiny skirts and skyscraper heels despite the dress code for hemlines to fall around the knee







    Entertainment: Gaily dressed dancers entertain the crowd ahead of the races in vibrant floral print outfits




    Pimms o' Clock: A double decker London bus was converted into a unique bar for the Derby Festival and was inundated with thirsty racegoers


    Good going: Bowler hatted men study the form ahead of the first race of the day, the Princess Elizabeth Stakes


    Thirsty work: Gallons of Pimms and champagne, the traditional tipples of the Investec Derby Festival, will be drunk today


    Winner: Thistle Bird (centre with yellow cap) ridden by James Doyle takes the Princess Elizabeth Stakes - the first of seven races today





    Impressive: Thousands are set to attend the Derby, which was first run in 1780. It also boasts the largest prize money - £1,325,000 - of any British race

    those are great pictures. love the one of the guys reading the programmes.

    but seriously, about half those women would look considerably less cheap and trashy if they just cut it out with the fake tans. orange is not a good look. the stripper platform shoes also need to die in a fire.

    see, i love those last 2. if you're going to the races, do it right and get a crazy beautiful fascinator. i think they both look fab. way more elegant than the tattooed orange stripper brigade also in dougie's posts.

    i like all of these too:










    and these 2 are kinda boring but they look great:

    Holy crap! I hate tattoos to begin with, but this one is the zenith of disgusting, ugh. Reminds me of those horrible tats of Amy Winehouse.

    Is this even legal in public? At any rate, she must have really bad skills cause he doesn't even seem to notice.

    The guys reading the programmes are wearing trilby hats, not bowlers. Carry on.

    • Huge colourful hats and elegant shift dresses proved popular among racegoers arriving for day one of Royal Ascot
    • Ascot has a strict dress code with straps of less than one inch thick and fascinators among the contraband
    • Despite the watching fashion police, some determined racegoers did manage to sneak in wearing outlandish garb
    • Celebrity racegoers included Sir Bruce Forsyth, Eamonn Holmes and Ultimo boss Michelle Mone
    • The first race of the day was the Queen Anne Stakes where favourite Toronado stormed home to win
    • Other winners include The Wow Signal who took the Coventry Stakes and King's Stand Stakes victor Sole Power
    • Ascot has been a royal tradition since 1711 when the last Stuart monarch, Queen Anne, had the venue built
    • Although none of the Queen's horses will run today, Musical Comedy will compete in tomorrow's Jersey Stakes

    Glamorous in a rainbow of colourful hats, bright shift dresses and towering heels, the ladies were out in force as the first day of Royal Ascot got underway.

    Perhaps mindful of organisers’ warnings about bare shoulders - helped by a chill breeze that blew in off the Berkshire countryside - and too-small headgear, tasteful knee-length frocks dominated, as did huge wide-brimmed hats.

    That didn’t, however, prevent a few brave souls from running the gauntlet of Ascot’s fashion police with the odd outré titfer or wacky ensemble. Among them was racegoer Jackie St Clair, who accessorised her simple navy dress with a huge butterfly shaped hat decked out with iridescent blue feathers.

    Joining them at the races was Gok Wan, Channel 4’s most recent race day signing, and the man in charge of giving viewers a style insider’s view on proceedings.
    Speaking ahead of the event, he told of his excitement at being signed up to work on Royal Ascot – and tipped monochrome and brights to take the prizes in the style stakes.
    ‘There’s going to be a lot of monochrome and quite a lot of colour clash,’ he told MailOnline. ‘Floral prints are a huge trend throughout the whole of the summer as well.
