Aintree Ladies Day revellers put their best foot forward in sequins and plunging necklines

On Thursday the ladies of Liverpool braved plummeting temperatures, high winds and persistent rain as they got day one of the three-day Aintree Grand National Festival 2019 off to a glamorous start. 

And on Friday the guests continued to up the style stakes as they descended on the annual festival in an array of polka dots,  florals, frills and fancy fascinators in a show of even more glamorous ensembles than the previous day.

The impressive displays were part of an effort to win the coveted best-dressed Ladies Day award, and racegoers certainly gave judges a tough job as they arrived in a flurry of precarious heels, statement hats and dramatic dresses.

More than 150,000 are expected at the three-day meeting, which is in its 180th year and hosts the showpiece Grand National race on Saturday afternoon.

The day will see over £25million spent in bets and while a jaw-dropping 20,000 bottles of bubbly will be consumed.

One group of ladies looked fabulous in bridal inspired ensembles as they opted for the monochrome look for day two of the three-day Aintree Grand National Festival 2019 in Liverpool.

An early bird couple were seen arriving at the venue in their best attire, with the female racegoer matching her pink heels to her dramatic dress, teaming it with a white blazer and wide rim hat.

Elsewhere a trio of women were seen arriving in coral-coloured ensembles with pretty fascinators, layering up to ward off the April chill.

One style maven took the theme of the day quite literally, and looked chic in beige jodhpurs, knee-high boots, a flat cap and a black blazer as she posed alongside her dapper partner, dressed in a tweed jacket and waistcoat. 

Meanwhile A group of ladies injected a splash of colour to the dreary day as they arrived in a flurry of bright dresses, polka dots and head-turning hats. 

TV presenter Alison Hammond was also seen among the first arrivals, bringing a splash colour in a cobalt blue cardigan and matching dress.
