      Looks like the lady in the first photo has went for a hat that looks like a bra.
      Maybe she’ll kick things off by burning it later?

      Indeed. Women should have no interest in clothes and should never try and dress up. Feminism = free dungarees for all.

    Aww, it’s looks like the last person didn’t even get any help from a grown up to make her hat.

    It’d be a pain in the hoop having to sit behind one of those. Probably wouldn’t even be able to see Springsteen,

      I think that’s a steering wheel. Which could denote that she’s an easy ride or at best a colourful one.

    What would Jane Ruffino think?
    PPS – it’s ok I found out
    “I think they should turn it into a competition to see which member of the horsey set most closely resembles Cian O’Connor’s overmedicated beast. . . Most of the dresses are those awful, asymmetrical-cut, multi-layered chiffon numbers that look like re-rolled toilet paper. Lots of shitty fucking applique, too. They don’t live in the real world. They live inside the lifestyle supplement magazines in the weekend papers. If you flip the pages real fast you can see them rev their SUVs over some poor people. But mutton dressed as lamb? Mutton dressed as mutton more like. . . Anyway, yeah, they all have these freakishly over-coordinated fashion don’ts. It’s like, “Look, I managed to find a pink hat in the same shade as one of the sequin appliques on my chiffon dress! And shoes, too!” Is this what actually passes for style among the money? Find something interesting and rebuild it or get someone to rebuild it for you into something that actually suits. “

      Bit of a chip on your shoulder PJ. Where’d you get the idea that only people with money can put on a frock and go to the horse show? We get it, you don’t like the cut of their collective gib but if it makes them feel good for a day, why knock it.

      As an aside, the black hat is tragic. No one wearing a black hat is ever gonna win.

          Clearly you’ve never been. They are mostly people who like horses and enjoy any excuse to hang out with friends for the days, with the smell of straw and horse sh*t as a backdrop. Loosen up with the judgement.

    Hey there,
    I happen to be ”the last one” The crazy lady with the HORSE on her head. I am a textile artist with a lot of talent, but decided to have a fun day. It’s called ”not taking life serious” I had a ball, I made people laugh and I gave the two fingers to the poker faced ”set up” of a so called LADIES DAY.
    To the feminists, whats wrong with dressing up.
    Get a life
