'It's an honour' - Irish woman wins Best Dressed after colourful Ladies Day at Aintree
A Carlow woman has picked up the prize for Best Dressed at Ladies Day at Aintree.
Faith Amond was awarded the prize, a brand new Range Rover, for her red and pink ensemble, after ten finalists were selected from the crowd.
Judges included Olympian Sam Quek and fashion designers Philip and Tony Armstrong.
Wearing an outfit by Irish designer Louise Kennedy and a hat by Irish milliner Jennifer Wrynne, Ms Among revealed she bought some of the pieces last year and put the outfit together herself.
The mum-of-three, who also makes her own hats, spoke to the Liverpool Echo after her win.
"It just all worked together. It's just such an honour to be winning at Aintree, there was such great style," she said.
She has made the final previously, joking "I waited for the big one".
"I couldn't believe when my name was called," she said.
She has a keen interest in fashion.
"I love the style, I think every woman loves style...I love coordinating the outfits."
She visits the UK for the festival every year and said she finds everyone very friendly and enjoys it every year.
