Vogue Williams has been announced as the celebrity judge for the grand final of the Bollinger Best Dressed Lady Competition at this year’s Punchestown Festival which will take place on Ladies Day, Friday 28th of April at the Kildare venue. Vogue will join the line-up of other celebrity judges Glenda Gilson, Aisling O’Loughlin and Bláthnaid Treacy to choose the most stylish lady of the festival 2017.

Vogue said “I’m so excited to be judging Ladies Day at Punchestown. I love the races, there’s always a great atmosphere down there, it’s a brilliant day out. The fashion is always amazing and women really make a huge effort so I know I’ll have a tough time choosing the best dressed.”


The format for the Bollinger Best Dressed Lady Competition runs over the first four days of the Punchestown Festival when judges and style scouts find the most stylish ladies in attendance and select a number of finalists each day. The daily winner will then progress to the grand final on Ladies Day, Friday 28th of April. For those planning on dressing up for Punchestown, it’s important to note that gates open at 12 noon each day and scouting will commence early, festival organisers are encouraging ladies to be on site from 1pm if they are interested in the Bollinger Best Dressed Lady Competition.


Bollinger’s philosophy is that “Life Can Be Perfect”, and the family-owned Champagne House stays true to form with a bespoke prize created especially for the winner of Ireland’s most coveted fashion title. The 2017 Bollinger Best Dressed Lady at Punchestown will receive a VIP trip for two taking in the Bollinger Estate, Reims and Paris complete with private chauffeur, Michelin-starred dining and luxury accommodation, not to mention a year’s supply of Bollinger to top it all off! Not be forgotten the finalists who will each receive a luxury goodie bag filled with luxury treats including Topflight vouchers, Race Tickets, Bellamianta Tan and much more!
