Angela gives style tips forLadies Day

STYLIST Angela Scanlon said judging Ladies Day at the Dublin Horse Show this week will be "a challenge and a joy".

The flame-haired beauty will be casting her impeccable sartorial eye over attendees at the RDS this Thursday.

This is the second Ladies Day that the 29-year-old has judged and said it is a "challenge".

"The last time was quite an experience so I'm looking forward to reliving that. I'm just hoping it doesn't rain on us all day, it ruins the buzz and the hats," she told the Herald.

Scanlon will be joined on the judging panel by fellow stylist Brendan Courtney along with world renowned milliner Phillip Treacy who will also decide upon 'The Best Dressed Man.'


"I've met Philip before. He's a gent, so I'm in very good company," she said. "I think we have similar-ish ideas about style."

The fashion stakes will be high and Angela said she has a clear idea of what she likes.

"It's very important to dress suitably for the occasion; it's an all day event so something that goes from day into evening," she said.

"I will be hoping to for something a bit more understated, effortlessly stylish with a glimpse of madness. Ladies should stay away from the the dress-up-box style of racing attire."
