Coast is sponsoring this year’s best-dressed lady competition at Punchestown race course, and when I spoke to Sinéad Whelan of Aurora Fashions earlier this month she told me they would be looking for something a little more down-to-earth than in previous years. Less cash and more charisma, perhaps; more realistic, bargain-hunting fashion and people who have a lot of style on perhaps a low budget.

So Athy’s Naoise Pelin was the perfect choice for day one, dressed in a vintage dress, a hat she made herself, a Penneys bag and Fitzpatricks shoes, accessorised with an umbrella from Newbridge Silverware.
