Cheltenham 2019: Gold Cup Day sees demure looks – but were there any style slip-ups?


As per tradition, a day at the races often sees attendees done their finery. And, while Cheltenham Festival has a relatively relaxed dress code compared to other racing events, there was no shortage of glamorous and attention-commanding ensembles being spotted today. The fourth, and final, day of the annual races is known as Gold Cup Day. So, as racegoers are pictured arriving at Cheltenham Racecourse, what style trends can be spotted?

Considering this week’s wintery weather, it may come as no surprise that so many people decided to wrap up warm today.

One person could be seen sporting an all-black suit which she had teamed with a hot pink belt and matching shoes.

Taking shelter from the rainy weather, the woman carried her fluffy white coat over her head.

Another woman opted for bright red wide-leg trousers and a matching blazer – as well as a white shirt.

Keeping her hair dry, the racegoers draped a dark suit jacket over her two raised arms.

Yesterday, attendees oozed glamour as they made their arrivals – however plenty were left at risk of a wardrobe malfunction.

Stepping out for Day three of the races, blustery weather saw many racegoers being forced to hold onto their hats.

Zara Tindall, 37, was also seen struggling with the wind, as she arrived with her husband Mike Tindall, 40.

The royal, who is the granddaughter of Queen Elizabeth II and daughter of Princess Anne, sported a pale grey coat for the occasion.

Her designer garment is by Pip Howeson, and costs £2,800.

The questions also wore a bespoke Bundle MacLaren ‘Cordelia’ hat and Calleija earrings, as well as carrying an Olga Berg clutch.
