Garishly bright frocks, oversized fascinators plonked on top of heads and several layers of bad fake tan are the few things that come to mind when I think about Ladies day at Ascot.

With lovely ladies oozing glamour and sophistication in soft colour palettes, minimalist outfits and allowing the oh so important accessories to do the talking.
The bold and the beautiful came out to play last week for the Cannes film festival 2013. Monochrome and muted toned gowns dominated the red carpet this year with shimmering metallics, feminine silhouettes, exquisite lace and thigh high split skirts. Which one’s your favourite look?
