Lesley Teehan from Kilkenny scooped the lucrative prize at the Limerick Races.

The Kilkenny native won the Keane's Most Stylish Lady competition at Limerick Racecourse on Sunday in the true best dressed uniform - a mixture of high end with high street. The hat entrepreneur stood out from the crowd in white flared trousers from Zara, a wrap-around coat from Swamp and taking a page straight from Amy Huberman's book, her crystal encrusted wedding shoes by Jimmy Choo and a headpiece from her Harper's Hats range. She walked home with a rose gold and diamond pendant from the Limerick-based jeweler, worth €4,000.

Nadine Smith from Abbeyfeale, Co Limerick, went home with the second prize with a voucher from Carraig Donn for €1,000 and caught attention in an all-Irish emsemble: her silver ensemble from Annsbury's boutique in Tralee, Co Kerry and a feathered fascinator by milliner Aoife Hannon. Rounding out the top three was Diana Hilliard from Listowel, Co Kerry, who injected some colour to the weekend's festivities in her red suit from Zara.

Each of the 10 finalists received jam-packed goodie bags from sponsors Keane's Jewellers, Carraig Donn, Inis, Dr Hauschka, Ramen Limerick, Anner Beauty and Alexandra Orthodontic & Dental Centres. Blogger Sinead O'Brien, aka Sinead's Curvy Style, was head judge on the day, while guests were treated to a stylish afternoon with Celia Holman Lee MC'ing a fashion show accompanied by afternoon tea.

The tv personality is synonymous with racing style, in particular in her native Limerick, and is a regular fixture at the most exclusive social events on the racing calendar. On Sunday, she opted for a semi-sheer lace dress with a waterfall coat for her hosting duties.
