If the last two years have taught us anything it’s that there’s no time like the present to don a fabulous frock and at this year’s Galway Races, the crowd has been celebrating in style!

For the first time in three years, Friday's Most Stylish, sponsored by Athlone Towncentre took place in person and entrants went all out with their ensembles.

From bright colour to bold print, judges Bláthnaid Treacy, Marietta Doran and General Manager of Athlone Towncentre, Shirley Delahunt were treated to an array of outfits that championed Irish design, high street finds and boutique gems.

But there could only be one winner and Sarah McDermott from Newbridge in County Kildare, who is celebrating a big week after getting engaged on Sunday, wowed the judges thanks to her colourful and patterned blazer and playsuit co-ord by Kevin Jon.

It was a win for local style as the primary school teacher picked up the statement set from Harper Boutique in Galway which she topped off with a navy headpiece by Australian milliner Rebecca Share, which she hired from Hats Amore, Newbridge.

The model's winning ensemble also had a high sustainable element as she borrowed her accessories, Carvela shoes and Prada handbag, from her pal.

The fashion blogger's week has certainly been full of delightful twists and turns as she has only just announced her engagement, with her partner Eoin Stakelum getting down on bended knee just days ago!
