Hundreds dressed to impress - but only one could be first past the post.
Receiving the winner’s bouquet for her stylish attire was Deb Amiss, from Taverham, who was named best-dressed at Great Yarmouth Racecourse’s Ladies Day, part of its three-day Eastern Festival.
For the second year running, intu Chapelfield shopping centre sponsored the contest, picking out ten ladies as finalists, before the judges had the tough job of crowning one winner and two runners up.
First prize was an intu Chapelfield gift card loaded with £500 to spend at any of the centre’s stores, cafes or restaurants.
Runners-up, Jo Oldman and Laura Cogman, returned home with a £250 intu Chapelfield gift card each.
The finalists were picked out of the glamorous crowd by intu Chapelfield’s team of style spotters, including the centre’s marketing manager, Sheridan Smith and a trio of local fashion and lifestyle bloggers, Shelley Hazlewood, Laura Ellen-Wright and Laura Stafford-Smith.
Sheridan Smith, intu Chapelfield’s marketing manager, said the team of style-spotters were seriously impressed with the outfits on display; “The fashion bar was set high, with lots of sophisticated hats, bold bright colours and elegant dresses on show. Our style-spotters had the tough job of picking just one winner, but we all agreed that Deb looked absolutely stunning, as did all the Best Dressed finalists. The crowd at Great Yarmouth really know how to dress to impress for a day out at the races, and we’d like to thank everyone for turning out in their gorgeous outfits on the day. And to the team at Great Yarmouth Racecourse for hosting a fabulous day of racing.”
