Bride-to-be Rosanna Davison looked a picture of elegance at today's Fairyhouse Races.

Chris de Burgh's daughter attended the Irish Grand National to judge the Most Stylish Lady competition.

And the former Miss World was the perfect candidate to handpick the winner of the coveted title.

Army captain Catherine Lundon from Mullingar took the crown.

Ms Lundon wore a disco ball-esque gold disc sequinned 'Virgo's Lounge' peplum top she bought at Nell's Closet in Athlone last summer for a wedding.

The Most Stylish Lady competition sponsored by Carton House was themed 'all that glitters is gold'.

Catherine matched her top with ten year-old black trousers from Vila, shoe-boots from Kurt Geiger, a DKNY clutch bag and a faux fur collar from Ted Baker.

Yesterday she was in full uniform, raising the national colours at Glasnevin cemetery. But today, the transport officer at Cathal Brugha barracks in Dublin's Rathmines went for full-on glamour.

She was a unanimous winner from judges Brendan Courtney, Rosanna Davison and myself (Bairbre).

She won an €8,000 package from Carton House and a bottle of Bollinger champagne.

Catherine came in the first ten in the style stakes at Bellowstown races last year before heading off on peace keeping duties in the western Sahara.
