Women compete for 'Best Dressed' at Ladies' Day

What is ladies day all about? Well its certainly about dressing up. Style guru Lawrence Llewelyn-Bowen told me that colour is essential - its spring - it's just not on to do black! Hats, of course, were on show. One hat maker told me it takes several days to make a single hat. No wonder they are so expensive. Carol Vorderman said that she is lazy when it comes to choosing hats. She grabbed a trilby and plonked it on - then decided she needed to choose an outfit to go with it! But perhaps the day was best summed up by a mum who was with her daughter. We're here to have fun - my daughter is getting married!
