Aoibhin Garrihy is doing Ladies Day style her own way.

Among a sea of fascinators and structured dresses, the actress (29) blazed a trail in an orange suit with flare detail trousers by FAO miillinery. She finished off her look with a straw brimmed hat and black strappy heels, raising the bar for Best Dressed Lady entrants at the the Galway Races today.

The Dancing With The Stars finalist was joined by tv presenter Baz Ashmawy and Irish Independent Fashion Editor Bairbre Power in her judging duties, eventually naming Aoife McCana as winner of the €10,000 prize.

McCana took home a prize including a pampering weekend at the five star g Hotel & Spa, a diamond pendant worth €2,500, a VIP trip to London with flights, accommodation and spending money and a hair makeover from Yourells Hair Group in Galway.

As usual, Ladies Day was filled with familiar faces, including former Miss World Rosanna Davison, who opted for a floral dress by Ganni and a gold headpiece by Irish milliner Suzie Mahony.

Oniesa Owens was named runner up and winner of the Best Hat prize with a headpiece by Davina Lynch, scooping a prize worth €2,000, including a two night stay at the g Hotel, a spa gift hamper from the hotel's ESPA, a champagne afternoon tea and a €100 voucher for Yourells Salon.
