The Bollinger Best Dressed Lady competition at Punchestown is a competition as fierce as the main races themselves, but when we say "fierce", we mean more Tyra Banks than Tiger Woods.
One of the most hotly anticipated day of the year for many fashion lovers, the day is typically awash with extravagant headpieces, striking colour combinations and ever more elegant outfits.
This year, it was Gretta Peters, a 35 year-old mum-of-three from Tipperary, who walked away with the prize in the Bollinger Best Dressed Lady competition.
As the brains behind fashion blog Get Glam with Gret, it's no wonder that the blogger pulled off a stunning look. Wearing a rich navy off-the-shoulder two-piece outfit with a flouncy hem by Julie Caulfield, a bespoke designer based in Wexford, Gretta's look was reminiscent of the sophisticated looks that Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, has worn in the past.
However, she jazzed up the look with dazzling Laura Hanlon headpiece, featuring a small navy hat accented with a halo of crisscrossing golden spikes. She finished her look with navy stilettos with a gold toe, perfectly matching her ensemble.
Winning even more points for sustainability, Gretta shared that she had recycled the outfit from a a friend's wedding, when she wore it with a different hat.
But her actual prize? A deluxe goodie bag and a bottle of bubbly* from Bollinger and entry to this Friday's fashion finale.
Speaking to Independent.ie, Gretta said "It's my first [Best Dressed competition] and I can't believe it it's Bollinger. It's brilliant. I go to a lot of Ladies Day. I really enjoy the style and the fashion."
Having recently giving up her day job as a receptionist in a medical negligence practice only a few weeks ago to focus on her fashion blog, the win was particularly encouraging for the blogger.
"I used to work in an office up until a couple of weeks ago as a receptionist in a medical negligence practice and I decided to go full-time with the blog and I have three kids as well, which is more important."
The other finalists included Maria Byrne, from Longford, Vivienne O’Connor, from Celbridge, Joanne Byrne, from Kildare and Sarah Cass, from Kilkenny.
