An Insiders View on How to Look your Best at the Al Shaqab Lockinge with Ladies Day

Stand out by a mile at the Al Shaqab Lockinge with Ladies Day on Saturday 18 May at Newbury Racecourse.

Newbury Racecourse recently brought together three ladies with a wealth of experience in styling and fashion, including: Sarah Kate Byrne, ITV Racing Stylist, Emma Harding, co-owner of Hungerford based fashion boutique Mojo and McCoy, plus local hat hires specialist Lizzie Hughes, owner and manager of Lizzie’s Hats.

The three ladies gave their expert advice on how to champion this summer’s style and for this year’s Style Awards.  Open to everyone, entrants will have the opportunity to win an all-inclusive holiday for two to Qatar, courtesy of sponsors Al Shaqab as well as plenty of other prizes, courtesy of Biscuiteers and Parkway Shopping Newbury.

The 2019 Style Awards will take place in the new Rhododendron Garden and stage, which will be a hive of activity, with pop-up bars, ample seating and live music throughout the afternoon. Racegoers can round off a wonderful day by dancing away to a Celebrity DJ Set from Me & Mrs Jones, starring the fabulous Sophie Ellis-Bextor and her husband Richard Jones.

To ensure that all racegoers are photo ready and looking their best all day long, the new Photo Finish Marquee in association with Parkway Shopping Newbury, will be giving make-up and hair touch ups, and reenergising hand massages from L’Occitane.

Sarah Kate Byrne, ITV Racing Stylist and style panellist, said; “My advice is to aim for individuality & imagination when dressing. It’s not about the cost of an outfit, it’s about how it’s all pulled together. A winning look for me will be comfortable and practical, as well as suited to the wearer and the weather.  Looking at the exciting celebrity DJ after-party line up I’d make sure to pack a pair of flats so I can boogie away!”

Always a day which kicks off the summer season, top quality action on the course will be rivalled by fantastic entertainment and a thrilling atmosphere as the Flat season moves into top gear.  The star attraction of the afternoon, the Group 1 Al Shaqab Lockinge run over a straight mile and worth an impressive £350,000 in prizemoney.
