Women are donning their fanciest frocks and unusual headpieces in a bid to be crowned the Style Awards Best Dressed Lady.

The stylish winner will take home a number of swanky prizes, including a 12-month subscription to rental service The Devout, worth £708, and a House of Cavani voucher, worth £30.

As well as looking for creativity and originality, judges are seeking someone who has paid attention to the sustainability of their outfit.

And attendees have certainly not disappointed in their looks, and are oozing glamour from head to toe.

Thankfully, racegoers have been lucky enough to have good weather so far, and have been seen enjoying the sunshine. 

The racing event starts with Britain’s oldest horse race, The Newmarket Town Plate, which has been run at Newmarket’s Round Course since 1666.

It was launched by King Charles II, who insisted that it should be run “forever.”

Racegoers will enjoy seven races today, as well as being able to enjoy live music and entertainment at the venue. 

Radio 1 DJ Adele Roberts is playing this evening, and comes just days after announcing she is “cancer-free.”

The star, 43, had been suffering from bowel cancer, revealing in October that she was undergoing treatment and later having surgery to remove a tumour.

The star thanked her doctor and NHS staff, describing them as “angels”, as she shared the amazing news today.

Adele has been open about her cancer journey, particularly with her use of a stoma bag, which attaches to her abdomen and collects her faeces, and her experience of chemotherapy.

In a post on Instagram, Adele recalled her experience of hearing she was cancer-free as “the most beautiful sound I think I’ve ever heard”.

Alongside an image of her and her doctor, Dr Khan, she wrote: “Angel on Earth. The day I’ve been waiting for.

“Hearing the words “you’re free of cancer” absolutely took my breath away. I keep replaying it in my mind. It was the most beautiful sound I think I’ve ever heard. Even though I was praying Dr Khan would say that to me I don’t think my head let me believe it until I heard it.

“Everything we’ve been through seems to be swirling around in my body and life feels a bit surreal at the moment… BUT I AM SO GRATEFUL! I am counting my blessings.”
