Winter Fashion at Navan Races – Nothing Else Like It!
I’m delighted to be asked by Navan Racecourse to shoot their upcoming Ladies Day on Sunday November 27th. As Horse Racing Ireland puts it in their ad – nothing else feels like winter racing!
I was also there last November and I’ve compiled my favourite shots from the day - below. You can see all of the shots from the day - here. Of course, there’s a lot more to racing than fashion – check back next week for my favourite shots of lots of other people from last year.
Navan is the only November Ladies Day in Ireland so its a great occasion for fashionistas looking for a pre-Christmas day out. There’s fab prizes of a holiday and a shopping spree for the ladies and there will also be a new Best Dressed Gent competition.
So, onto to the pictures - we start with Aileen Campbell of Aileen’s Beauty Suite – followed by Milliner Mairead Traynor with celebrity judge, Marietta Doran who is also back again this year. They are on the balcony of the Arkle Bar.
Next are two Ladies Day regulars looking cosy in red – Louise Allen and Linda Morrison.
But for Tracy Duggan in blue, style was more important than the cold! And of course there are plenty of bars and restaurants on the course to warm up after parading in the style stakes.
Jane Allen wasn’t getting cold anywhere though!
Here’s Geraldine Shalvey enjoying the Course’s restaurant.
Next are Rebecca Finnegan & Elaine Sheridan heading for the Ladies Day Lounge.
Here’s Ciara Murphy and Elaine Bury of Style Goes Racing assessing the odds.
This is Shauna and Erin Lennon at the Ladies Day Lounge.
Here’s the first of the best dressed finalists – Ciara again.
Veronica Marley in green was also a finalist – she went on to be the summer winner at Navan last June.
Shauna Carroll and Gráinne Ní Shuilleabháin were two more finalists.
Here’s two shots of all the finalists including Sabriana Callan – with judges Marietta Doran and Pat Mullaney of sponsor Navan Town Centre.
And finally, here’s a few shots of the Best Dressed Lady Gráinne Ní Shuilleabháin
