The ladies gathered at Aintree today ahead of tomorrow's Grand National & the race course was in a flurry of fake tan as well as brightly coloured chiffon & fascinators to Jimmy Choos as glamorous girlies turned up in their thousands to celebrate the Grand National Festival's Ladies Day! One of the most famous attendees was Coleen Rooney who showed up in a Roberto Cavalli maxi-dress, speculation has been building over the last week on whether Mrs Rooney is pregnant & her light chiffon dress showing a slight baby bump this afternoon has only added fuel to the gossip fire!
Many attendees are there in the hope of being spotted as part of the Style 2009 competition to become 2009's most fashionable man or woman. A catwalk will be held in front of judges today including Coleen herself as well as Nikki Hambleton-Jones, Jeff Banks & Sheree Murphy, the winner will receive some amazing prizes including a car & a Caribbean holiday as well as starring in Matalan's new fashion campaign.
Some of the efforts were pretty gaudy & a tad OTT to say the least but that is only to be expected & certainly adds to an already colourful event!!! A collection of some great contenders for Style 2009 as well as some the great fashion disasters are pictured below, we'll leave it up to to decide who falls into either category!
