Head start for the Ascot hat brigade as the race for best-dressed fashionistas begins

By David Wilkes

When it comes to Royal Ascot, the most closely-fought race is always the one between the fashionistas.

Feathers and fascinators emerged as the favourites at the first day of the event yesterday – with some racegoers going to such heights to catch the eye that they obscured their own view.

Hat designer Tracy Rose raised the stakes with her outlandish black, white, yellow and pink creation, which matched both her dress and her nail varnish.

But Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice, who accompanied the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh on the traditional carriage procession around the course before the racing started, went for elegance over extravagance in simple hats and smart jackets.

And three racegoers in traditional Japanese dress stood out from the crowds with their flowing kimonos.

However, it was model Anneka Tanaka-Svenska who emerged head and shoulders above the rest – thanks to a 2ft Louis Mariette headpiece made of fake hair and cabbage roses.
