Vogue's issued her four-point guide to how to win an 8k jackpot at this year's Grand National. We're so on it.

Checked out Vogue Williams’ blog yet? My Name is Vogue is dedicated to her style adventures with a dash of food and beauty thrown in for good measure. We always like to keep an eye on what our former intern (during the Fade St days, remember?) is up to, because it’s always fun and interesting.

Vogue’s style is a sweet mix of high-low and she’s completely unafraid to combine designer with highstreet faves like H&M and Zara with pieces from brands like Valentino and Louboutin – and it totally works. Helps she’s a stone cold fox, of course, huh?

So when we saw that she’s judging the most stylish lady prize, sponsored by Carton House, at this year’s Boylesports Irish Grand National, on Easter Monday 6th April, we got interested. Let’s face it, BDL (that’s best dressed lady to you) at the races is often a fairly stuffy affair, so we wanna see how Vogue, will, well, en vogue things a little

Wear a hat, get ahead

A hat or headpiece is the quintessential accessory associated with any most stylish lady outfit. A statement headpiece that reflects the style of the person wearing it can lift any outfit from standard, to stand out.

Don’t sweat it

My advice is to think effortless style. Don’t limit yourself to a designer outfit, there’re plenty of local boutiques and high street designs that can look equally sleek and I’m a big fan of mixing and matching. Stick with what looks great on you, and above all be comfortable!

Go native

I really want to see Irish style celebrated at its best. Ireland is renowned for its talented pool of home-grown designers, from haute couture headpieces to sophisticated ensembles, so I’m encouraging ladies to incorporate subtle Irish design into their outfits on the day. Be it a simple clutch handbag or an edgy headpiece to a Celtic inspired brooch; it’s time to raid wardrobes and hit the shops!

Be yourself

I love a lady who doesn’t conform but shows off her own unique sense of style. As the saying goes, style can’t be bought, it’s all about how you wear it.

Whaddya think of Vogue’s tip? Gonna head racewards and try and scoop the jackpot?
