Who wore it better?

Among a sea of feathered fascinators, frilly dresses and too-high heels, Vogue Williams was a breath of fresh air judging the Best Dressed at Epsom Derby on Friday.

The tv presenter stood out from the crowd in a chic white jumpsuit and her standout piece - a white visor by Irish milliner Martha Lynn. And our style stalkers noted her unique look echoed a little familiar as fellow Irish model Roz Purcell wore a similar version in April while judging the Best Dressed at Punchestown Racecourse.

At the time, Roz wore a plunging black suit and the same Chevron Visor in red and naturally stole the show with a never-before-seen ensemble.

A style crossover among our small pool of famous fashionistas was bound to happen eventually. To be among the handful of young and beautiful Irish media darlings, brands practically fall over each other to land a coveted organic mention to an influencer's 100k+ Instagram following.

While it's more than likely that both borrowed the pieces, one thing is for certain - it's pretty much guaranteed a sell-out now.

Lynn is famous for her dramatic headpieces and has featured in British Vogue and Elle, among other style bibles. The piece retails for €295.
