stylish lisa SET to judge best dressed

TV stylist Lisa Fitzpatrick will be one of the judges at this year's Punchestown Festival, the Diary can reveal.

The star of SOS (left) has been chosen to cast a discerning eye over the fashion-forward fillies at the Kildare festival, which runs from April 24-28.

And this year sees Coast taking centre stage as the main sponsor of the Best Dressed Lady competition.

In addition to giving out €1,000 vouchers to the daily winner of the fashion plate, there's also a shopping and travel prize worth more than €7,000 for the overall winner.

Stylish Lisa will be at the festival on Ladies Day on April 27, where she'll be helping to choose the big winner of the week.

She also revealed how she has slipped back into her high heels in the wake of having some radical surgery on her knee, which saw her having to wear a cast for several months.

"I only got the cast off last week so I still have to be a bit careful but it has mended really well," she told the Diary.

She'll be one of the attendees at the invite-only bash to launch the Punchestown fashion competition taking place at Residence this Thursday.
