Our international Man of Mode has once again been our Royal Ascot correspondent, taking some excellent pictures from his high vantage point.
Princess Eugenie and her pea.
If you do not know, there is a rather restrictive dresscode to be admitted to the Royal Enclosures. They are:
Her Majesty’s Representative wishes to point out that only formal day dress with a hat or substantial fascinator will be acceptable. Off the shoulder, halter neck, spaghetti straps and dresses with a strap of less than one inch and miniskirts are considered unsuitable. Midriffs must be covered and trouser suits must be full length and of matching material and colour.
Gentlemen are required to wear either black or grey morning dress, including a waistcoat, with a top hat. A gentleman may remove his top hat within a restaurant, a private box, a private club or that facility’s terrace, balcony or garden. Hats may also be removed within any enclosed external seating area within the Royal Enclosure Garden.
There's even a handy little photo guide to tell you what's acceptable.Here's Jasmine Guinness and her milliner, Stephen Jones, being interviewed by some media types.
Thanks to David & Morag for their 2nd Annual Ascot report!
