For a tall woman this Philip Treacy private hat worn with the right Chanel couture dress would look stunning for Ascot - just as long as it wasn't windy!
|Or on a tighter budget this Julian MacDonald dress for Debenhams - a snitch at £52.00 in their 20% off sale - remember it is all about the hat at Ascot girls!|
|Steven Jones hat - a glorious pretty design in keeping with floral trend of this summer.|
|On a larger budget I would wear the above hat with this body hugging Victoria Beckham dress from her S/S 2011 collection|
|This Philip Treacy would have to go with an Erdem dress on someone with long dark hair - like Jasmin Le Bon|
|Erdem S/S 2011 pretty white lace for girls with exceptional legs.|
