Majestic fashion with royal touches from crowns to coronets are centre stage this week. There's no reason why you can't give your summer wardrobe a regal twist and channel aristocracy, a little Dolce & Gabbana-style gilt with some edgy 'Game of Thrones' thrown in for good measure.

Sunday, August 3 has been declared official dress-up day at Castlepalooza, one of Ireland's leading boutique music and arts festivals. They are teaming up with Vodafone's Centre Stage to create Ireland's first festival fancy dress.

This regal court will convene in the majestic grounds of Charleville Castle, Co Westmeath. When planning your capsule festival wardrobe make sure to think tiaras and crowns, kings and queens, princes and princesses. Your look can run from disco queen to fated Marie Antoinette, even the King of Rock'n'Roll, Elvis Presley, deserves a little channelling.

If you need a help on the day, simply visit the Vodafone Centre Stage 'Dress-Up Room' and purchase a funky regal number. Members of the Royal Castlepalooza Court will also be handing out bespoke regal accessories across the weekend.

The bash will conclude with a royal coronation ceremony for the best king and queen who will each be granted a Golden Ticket pass for the entire Centre Stage 2015 festival line up, a Vodafone handset and VIP camping at Castlepalooza festival 2015. Her Majesty has spoken.
