It was a case of third time's the charm for the Most Stylish Lady competition winner, Laura Elliott (26) from Co Fermanagh.

The dentist was all smiles after her stunning red outfit was first past the post in the style stakes, with TV presenter Jenny Buckley picking her as the winner.

She oped for a red dress from Coast teamed with a Jenny Packham bag and a hat by milliner Jennifer Wrynne.

She said she was naturally over the moon with the win - and it was her third time entering a style competition at the races.

"I'm actually shocked. I can't believe it," she told independent.ie.

"The style here is just out of this world and I didn't even expect to be in the top ten, let alone to win.

This is my third time entering. I was in the top ten at the Sligo races a few years ago and I went to the Curragh last year and missed it. I'm over the moon."

Engaged to be married next year to fiance Damien O'Kane, she said the prize of a trip to Italy would come in very handy when it came to unwinding before her big day.
