Women in flirty frocks and statement jumpsuits arrived in their dozens for the event – a mainstay in Britain’s racing and social calendar.

Outlandish headwear was the order of the day for many, with oversized hats and flamboyant fascinators adorned with feathers, butterflies and flowers spotted in the enclosure. 

Guests in the Grandstand Enclosure are encouraged to dress smartly for Ladies’ Day during the Investec Derby Festival, while ladies and gentlemen in the Queen’s Stand enclosure are asked to wear a fascinator or hat and a jacket, collar and tie respectively.

Today is the first of two days of racing at Epsom Downs, with the festival featuring quality racing, the highly-contested Style Awards and an Official After Party hosted by DJ Vogue Williams.
