Style and glamour are synonymous with top class horseracing, and on Friday 3 June, Epsom Downs Racecourse invite women of all ages to dress to impress for a chance of winning the ‘Style Award’ at Investec Ladies’ Day.

The fantastic prizes on offer include the use of a Bentley Continental GT for a weekend; a Bentley Ladies Continental handbag worth £2,950; luxury Bloom Gin hampers; and tickets to see Irish music sensation The Corrs at Epsom Downs Racecourse later this summer.

This year’s celebrity judge for the highly coveted ‘Style Award’ title is model, presenter and DJ Vogue Williams, who will be joined by a representative from hello! magazine to pick the winners.

Vogue Williams is a true fashionista and she is a regular celebrity blogger on hello! online and guest panellist on shows such as ITV’s ‘Off the Rails’. She has also DJed at some of the biggest festivals in Europe and will bring Investec Ladies Day to a close amidst a party atmosphere when she DJ’s after racing.

Vogue Williams said:

“I am absolutely delighted to be invited back to Epsom Downs Racecourse to judge the Investec Ladies Day Style Award on Friday 3 June. The Ladies Day top prize is the use of a Bentley Continental GT for a weekend and a Bentley Ladies Continental handbag worth £2,950, so get your outfits ready and be in for a chance to win, it’s a great prize.
