Bollinger Best Dressed Lady

Bollinger return as the sponsor of the 2018 Bollinger Best Dressed Lady at Punchestown.

The Punchestown Festival will run from Tuesday 24th to Saturday 28th April 2018. As per previous years the Bollinger Best Dressed Lady competition will take place over the first four days with the overall winner being chosen and announced on Friday 27th April.

Bollinger’s philosophy is that “Life Can Be Perfect” and the family-owned Champagne House stays true to form with a bespoke prize created especially for the winner of Ireland’s most coveted fashion title.

How It Works: If you love style and jump at a chance to dress to impress this one is for you. Budget, age, shape or experience in best dressed competitions are irrelevant. Our judges and style scouts will be combing the enclosures seeking out ladies whose outfits catch the eye, are occasion and weather appropriate and are worn with confidence. A stand out hat or head piece is a sure way to be noticed. Gates open at 12 and the scouting starts from 1pm so be sure to arrive early. Finalists will be invited to the main stage where the daily winner will be selected at 4pm each day. The lucky daily winner will return for the grand final on Festival Friday. 

Please Note: Style is a very important part of the Punchestown Festival. Photography and videography will be in prgress throughout the event. As a festival goer and a potential contender for the Bollinger Best Dressed competition, your image may be captured for use in media publications and in digital, print and video promotional material for Punchestown Racecourse.
