What the judges are looking for

  • Stand out from the crowd and show creativity in coordinating your outfit but remember it also has to be appropriate for a day at the races.
  • There’s a big emphasis on hats and fascinators. It doesn’t have to be the biggest or fanciest head piece but it should complement your outfit.

The Judging Panel for this year’s competition comprises of Alice Ryan, Editor of Velvet Magazine, our media partner for the Awards and Ana Pribylova from Ana Bella Millinery.

Alice Ryan
Velvet editor Alice Ryan has been judging racecourse best-dressed events for the better part of 10 years and has judged at Newmarket, summer and autumn, for five. With more than a decade as a magazine editor, she has been at the helm of Velvet, the award-winning monthly glossy covering Cambridgeshire and West Suffolk, since 2018. A lifelong follower of fashion, Alice has subscribed to Vogue from the age of 17 and cites the late, great Alexander McQueen as her ultimate design hero "for creating clothes which are equal parts restrained and rebellious". When it comes to the Style Awards, she looks for outfits which don't only follow fashion, but also celebrate the wearer's personal style.
