Celebrity fashion judge, Rosanna Davison, said; “I had a fantastic day here at Naas Racecourse looking out for all the style that was on show. It was very difficult to pick a winner because there was so much interest in the competition, which was certainly worth winning when you look at all the great prizes that were on offer. In the end it was Michelle who really stood out.

“We loved that she was so creative and was wearing her cardigan back to front on purpose! She even added some little net detail to the front of it with material she bought in Hickey’s. I am delighted to have had the opportunity to be part of the judging panel here on what was a thoroughly enjoyable day at the races.”
