It was understated elegance for model-turned beauty blogger Pippa O'Connor at Leopardstown as she enjoyed a post-Christmas date with husband Brian Ormond.

The pair mingled with punters on a day where luck was definitely in their favour.

Leaving young son Ollie at home, the couple spent time with friends and enjoyed a few flutters at the popular racing festival.

Pippa, who is expecting her second child next year, covered her neat bump in a high-neck grey wool dress.

Looking forward to a fun day @brianormondtv

She went for the sensible option of a long black coat themed with tights and a pair of simple black stilettos.

Brian, meanwhile, looked smart and was well-coordinated with his wife in a grey blazer and dark sweater over a shirt and tie combo.

While Pippa joked that she should have swapped her heels for a pair of wellies at the rain-swept course, the couple didn't have to worry about the weather as they enjoyed dinner and the festivities in a private box overlooking the racecourse.

"We come every year and we had a great day," Brian told the Herald.

"This has been our best year to date - we won on five of the seven races," he said.

Brian recently presented TV3's Toy Show and will front a new game show - Wishlist - for the Ballymount broadcaster.

Pippa (31), announced in November that she is expecting her second child in May.
