Clare woman Olive Foley has won a trip of a lifetime and 5-star luxury Irish luxury hotel stay for the Dubai Duty Free Most Stylish competition in association with the K-Club with her Amelia Wixted inspired outfit.
The fashionable competition was judged by Irish broadcaster, writer and impressionist Doireann Garrihy, and former Love Islander and Olympian Greg - both of whom have established themselves as sharp dressers in their own right.
They turned their discerning eyes to the revellers at The Curragh on Saturday, June 25th to find the most stylish lady and gent at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby, one of the most prestigious races in the international racing calendar.
Organisers of the event challenged racegoers to participate on a 'Lets Go Big' theme this year and they certainly didn’t disappoint as the racecourse exploded with colour behind the stands.
The prize was eventually won by Olive Foley from Killaloe in County Clare. Olive is the widow of late legendary Irish rugby player and Munster rugby manager Anthony Foley and she took the title with her colourful Amelia Wixted dress and Joanne Skelly hat.
Foley was positively beaming as she walked away with an amazing holiday of a lifetime at home and abroad courtesy of Dubai Duty Free and The K Club winning return flights for two to Dubai with five glorious nights in Dubai Duty Free’s own five-star hotel, The Jumeirah Creekside, as well as €1,000 in spending money at the award-winning airport retailer.
Back on home soil, the winner and a guest will also be treated to a two-night stay in a luxurious Liffey Suite at The K Club with dinner, spa treatments plus transfers to Dublin Airport for the big Dubai trip.
It wasn't all about the women however as there was also a fabulous prize for Most Stylish Man which was won by former Irish light heavyweight boxing champion Harry Cowap.
His handmade, light blue summer suit which won him a fantastic five-star K Club VIP experience including two nights in a luxury suite, dinner and a long list of fabulous resort activities including segway tours, spa treatments, whiskey tasting, clay-pigeon shooting and a €500 voucher to spend at nearby Kildare Village.
Paul Heery, General Manager of The K Club said: "From start to finish, today has been such an incredible combination of world-class racing, high stakes fashion and brilliant Irish hospitality and entertainment. Everyone attending definitely got our 'let's go big’ memo and the crowd was full of fun, glamour and style."
"I definitely didn’t envy the huge task our judges Doireann and Greg had in helping to crown this year’s Dubai Duty Free Most Stylish. They definitely selected the best and we look forward to treating them to a wonderful five-star K Club experience very soon."
