THE ladies of Cambridgeshire and beyond got their chance to showcase their floaty dresses and designer pashminas at an annual horse racing day devoted to the fairer sex.
Outrageous hats and gorgeous shoes were all on show at the ever-popular Ladies Day at Newmarket Racecourse yesterday.
The renowned July Course was packed with racegoers for the Lanson Ladies' Day - proving that the world famous Royal Ascot event now has a rival in attracting female horse lovers and pundits alike.
Fortunately, the cloudy weather yesterday did not dampen any spirits with rain largely staying away from the home of horse racing.
This left the ladies free to show off dresses and accessories to match as they battled it out to be crowned the best dressed lady and walk away with a year's supply of Champagne Lanson.
Dressing to impress, the action off the racetrack often took centre stage as thousands of racegoers turned out to transform Newmarket into a fashion paradise.
