Laura Whitmore And Jodie Kidd Dress Up For The Races

We’re half-way through the racing season but there’s a lot more to come – Ascot, Goodwood, Sandown Park, Cheltenham, Newmarket and other courses all have big events lined up – and this means it’s time to start thinking about some glamorous summer outfits. Looking good for the races, or for summer weddings, when it’s hot and you want to look good without flashing too much flesh can be stressful. At the final of Epsom Derby races, the celebrities went for classic black and white, which marked a change from last year. I remember seeing lots of floral prints at the same event last year but Jodie Kidd (above left) and Laura Whitmore (above right) both looked cool and collected in short black dresses. Because they’re both showing a lot of leg, these would be too much if they were colourful but they do stick to the rule of keeping their chests covered up if they’re showing their legs off. I also noticed that Laura, who is working on MTV, and Jodie, who will be presenting the Royal Ascot coverage on BBC, have a blazer and a cape respectively to cover up more if the weather takes a turn. I think it’s very important to take an extra layer to the races and you can always keep it in your handbag if you don’t need it. very-katherine But if wearing all black seems a bit too much for a summer event, how about taking inspiration from Katherine Jenkins? I thought the classical singer looked really pretty in a white dress but she avoided looking like it was a wedding dress with her black heels, black bag and black accessories. She had a very busy weekend as the following day she travelled to Old Trafford to sing before the celebrity football match Soccer Aid. Later on this summer, she’s taking part in the BBC Proms. Busy! Have you got any posh summer events coming up soon? If so, I hope the weather is good for it and I hope you have a LOT of fun!
