It was mum-of-three Gretta Peters who won over the judges with her sophisticated look in the Bollinger Best Dressed Lady competition at Punchestown today.

The Tipperary woman (35) wore a navy Julie Caulfield off-the-shoulder two-piece with a Laura Hanlon headpiece.  She had re-styled the look especially for the races, having worn it with a different hat for a friend's wedding.

She walked away with a deluxe goodie bag and a bottle of bubbly from Bollinger - and was fast tracked to this Friday's fashion finale.  A full-time blogger on Get Glam with Gret, this was the stylish mum's first win at the races.

"It's my first and I can't believe it it's Bollinger. It's brilliant," she said. "I go to a lot of Ladies Day. I really enjoy the style and the fashion."

She recently gave up the day job as a receptionist to focus on her fashion blog.

"I used to work in an office up until a couple of weeks ago as a receptionist in a medical negligence practice and I decided to go full-time with the blog and I have three kids as well, which is more important."
