She almost didn’t come to the third day of the Leopardstown winter racing festival, but Gillian’s last minute decision to go ahead with her original plan to wear a Donegal tweed two piece she designed herself turned out to be a triumph in the keenly contested Cliff At Lyons Style Stakes.
Her peplum tweed jacket and longline skirt was accessorised with a Marc Millinery hat with pheasant feather, white shirt with jabot, cream patent Amy Huberman heels and vintage gloves and bag. The outfit was made by a polish dressmaker near her home and the family’s love of the hunting ‘n fishing county look was clear when they are jubilantly joined mum in the parade ring. Many congratulations to Gillian.
