Best in Show
By the time August rolls around, we usually feel our enthusiasm for the terminally disappointing summer season lagging. Summer in Ireland is defined by ill-judged outfits - we're either clammy in an unnecessary jacket or chilly in sandals. The season is also punctuated by endless weddings, sure to leave us with summer-fashion fatigue. Luckily, the Best Dressed Lady event at the Dublin Horse Show is perfectly timed to reinvigorate our love for summer glamour. This year, competition is hot, with the epic prize of an €8,000 trip to New York up for grabs. Stylist Angela Scanlon, above, and designer and style guru Brendan Courtney are on the judging panel. So, don't forget to register for the Blossom Hill Ladies' Day at the Discover Ireland Dublin Horse Show, RDS, Dublin, on Thursday, 7 August.
