He might have been on the hunt for chic racegoers, but Aidan O'Mahony stole the show at the races.

The footballer turned Dancing with the Stars champion (37) was on hand to just Dawn Milk's Queen of Fashion Competition during Ladies Day at the Killarney Races on Thursday, alongside his trend-setting wife Denise Healy.

Denise, who welcomed their first child in March, turned heads in a muted jumpsuit and striking embellished headpiece, while O'Mahony opted for a classic three piece summer suit as he put his judging hat on at the biggest racing event in his native Kerry.

The couple have just returned from a family holiday to Mykonos earlier this month, but it was straight back to business as the garda put forward his best two-step to pick out the best dressed guests alongside DWTS co-star Thalia Heffernan.

The 22-year-old model shunned traditional racing attire in favour of a more modern take on the dress code in a metallic gold maxi skirt and plunging black bodysuit, with embellished accessories while her boyfriend Ryan MacShane supported her from the sidelines.

Also spotted at the races was blogger Erika Fox (Retro Flame), who is home from New York City for a few weeks before returning to her fashion career in the Big Apple.

This year's winners for Best Dressed Lady and Best Dressed Gent went home with a trip for two for two nights to Paris and Milan, respectively.
