Royal Ascot opened with great fanfare this past Monday, with royals, aristocrats, up-and-comers and celebrities in attendance. Royal Ascot is one of the world's most famous horse race competitions. This major British society event takes place at the Ascot Racecourse in England.
There is a strict dress code and British style is covered as much as the race itself. The finest milliners contribute their brilliant style to the parade of inspired hats worn by lady race attendees. Pearls are also a frequent sight and can be seen on elegant woman of all ages..
