Royal Ascot – 14th to 18th June 2011

The weather this year was quite mixed and there were occasions when the mac had to come out pretty quickly.  In the main though, we were able to get out and about and talk to some lovely people.

I was accompanied on Tuesday and Saturday by model Olivia Inge, who incidentally was the lovely lady in the opening sequences for BBC’s coverage each day.  On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, my co-presenter was milliner Louis Mariette.

Sadly this year I was without my lovely James Sherwood and I missed him very much.

Lots of people on twitter have been asking about my outfits for the week so below, thought you might like to see some pix.

Royal Ascot 2009

I was at Royal Ascot all week covering the fashion for the BBC with the lovely James Sherwood, the oracle on threads. It has been a few years since we worked together so I was really thrilled to be back on the box with him. I wore outfits by Jasper Conran, Bruce Oldfield and Ralph Lauren. My gorgeous hats were provided by Philip Treacy, Emily-London and Inga Roubi. I was very lucky and am extremely grateful to all of them for helping me out at such short notice.

James and I had an enormous amount of fun together and I lost a lot of money on the gee gee’s! Frankie lost me a packet! So if you ever see me never take a tip from me: I am hopeless.
