The RDS Horses For Courses...

Yes folks, it's that time of the year again when every self respecting woman in Ireland goes a bit weird and heads to The RDS for the Dublin Horse Show and ner a one of 'em goes near the nags. Nope. They stick feathers in their hats, break out the Debs dresses, and compete in Ladies' Day clothes coordinating competition...

Sinead Noonan

We're gonna make this one brief, as Peter Griffin might say: on your mark, get set, terrible... Yup. Yesterday was that day of the year when the women of Ireland go bonkers wearing overly matched clothes in order to win Ladies' Day... Makes the Lovely Girls Competition look sophisticated so it does... Gotta coordinate. Gotta.

Brendan Courtney, Sorcha O'Raghallaigh, Lucy Gilmore Murphy, Lucy Kennedy

Ahhh but it's all just a bit of fun, you say... It is in me arse! These women take this Ladies' Day malarkey damn serious. Just look at the amount of crazy clothes coordinating going on and all the queuing and parading... Mental. And it's called The Horse Show for some reason.

Aoibhin Garrihy & mother Clare Garrihy

This year Lucy Gilmore Murphy won Best Dressed Lady and got on the six-o-clock news, Elaine Bury was runner-up. Mark Flood won Best Dressed Man. Judges were Brendan Courtney, Sorcha O'Raghallaigh, and Lucy Kennedy. Bless 'em... Like, gotta stop huffing goat cheese, Ireland is a surreal place.

Nuala Carey & mother Anne Carey

So there you have it folks, proof that it's still the bloody 1950s... Right here. Right now. Right, off to match up coordinating hat, bag, gloves, belt, umbrella, and shoes... Please. Make. It. End.

Lucy, Lucy, Lucy - a blue gown. Why?

As garish and tasteless as the tacky souvenirs in a Killarney gift shop...
Ghastly uncoordinated colours, an affront to the naked eye, my thoughts keep returning to Hyacinth (the Bucket woman) and her drive to appear well placed on the social ladder. Kathryn Thomas is the most stylishly dressed here in my opinion. Even the hat is tasteful.

Totally agress Joanna, underwear should not be worn in these type dresses. Makes for better windy day upskirt shots too.

Sinead Nooan had the best hat. Wonderful. She should have won best hat. The best colourful outfit - the yellow number - was terrible. Worst line up of finalists ever.

What was the story with the yellow coat? The worst worst worst.

Love the hat of the winner - but there is no forgiveness for underwear lines and a very bad silhouette.

Lucy looks utterly miserable in that dress. I don't believe she would have chosen to wear a ball gown herself as it's totally inappropiate for a day at the horse show. She should fire her stylist who obviously told her she looked lovely and not ridiculous at all. And who is the girl next to her with the red hair? That's another scary dress. They look like they're the ugly sisters in the pantomine and I don't mean to be mean because I'm a genuine Lucy fan. I think she's hilarious and gorgeous but to put her up on a stage looking like a fright this just isn't on!

Irish women are so hot. Phil Mickelson said it best.

Winner wasn't notable. .. the winner should demand attention...The finalist wearing wellingtons was not appropriate. .. regardless of their brand. .. better placed at oxegen. Another finalist wearing Lady Gaga style shoes was also highly inappropriate and not lady like.. the judges highlighted comfort, simplistic elegance and colour. .. speechless regarding Lucys blue gown... neither judge dressed like a lady.

Lucy your fired!!
Lucy Kennedy was the worst dressed at the RDS wearing a bright blue ball gown and no hat. Oh dear, oh dear!!! She stated that she was a "ladies day judge vigin" and it showed. Was she ever at a ladies day event before? Lucys styple tips - "less is more, simply dress, simply look, someone who is confortable with what they were wearing and not pulling up their knickers" (Lucy on Xpose). Lucy did not look so confortable holding up her blue ball gown.

OMG, for a sec I thought the circus had come to town. Love Lucy Kennedy but she does look like she's off to the debs and as for everyone else? I have no words. There are about 5 classy women in the whole of the country and unfortunately none of them turned up to the RDS yesterday.

Some woeful fashion going on here! Am I missing something with the best dressed winner? Failing to see award winning material. In fact, all that I am seeing are some very non-seam free underwear lines! Once again, Kathryn T looks fantastic! Jusdith Keys' outfit is very different but nice.

Susan – Dublin
August 17, 2012 - 15:48

What was lucy wearing? A debs dress? Terrible !!

Jesus the state of Sinead Desmonds head, she looks like a pigeon or something. Karen Kosters legs look very odd too.
