Royal Ascot racegoers galloped past the winning post in the fashion stakes as Ladies’ Day saw a sea of weird and wonderful hats – including one from a Suffolk nurse.
Nothing was too outlandish for some of the female guests, who wore everything from jungle scenes to bottles of champagne and even a lobster on their heads.
Lindsay Anderson, 57, had onlookers doing a double take with her champagne-themed top hat complete with a horse jumping over the brim and two champagne flutes.
The senior staff nurse, who works at West Suffolk Hospital, said: “I found all the little bits and pieces yesterday and put them together last night.
“I’ve got Frankie Dettori jumping out of a bottle of champagne, it’s really a model of Lester Piggott but don’t tell anyone.
“The string of pearls coming out of the top are bubbles - it’s just a bit of fun.”
