Her are looking forward to bringing our own signature flair, engaging content, and loyal audience to this year’s Ladies Day proceedings. Her’s dedicated Style section on site had close to 26 million page views in the past year… so we’re expertly positioned to showcase all the excitement from trackside.

This year, racegoers will also enjoy a new Her Ladies Day Live Show. The trackside broadcast will capture all the atmosphere and excitement from the day, while being streamed live on Her social channels.

A judging panel of experts and roving ‘style reporters’ will cover the length and breadth of the racecourse to scout out the best outfits and treat viewers to style tips from racegoers and all the behind the scenes outfit inspiration from the Her Ladies Day Best Dress Competition finalists.

The Her Ladies Day Live Show will culminate with the announcement of the Her Best Dressed Competition, with the winning lady walking away with a luxury holiday from Emirates Holidays to the Seychelles worth more than €2,500 including flights, accommodation, transfers and an incredible €3,000 in cash.
