LADIES day at Glorious Goodwood has long secured its status as the most stylish racing event of the summer and today (Thursday, August 2), crowds in their thousands showed why.

A sea of floaty floral dresses and panamas flooded the green as race-goers took their places along the track to watch the most hotly anticipated race of the day – the Magnolia Cup, where celebrities including Edie Campbell and Sara Cox took the reins in aid of two charities, Spinal Research and Winston’s Wish.

Among those checking out the action were British beauty Kelly Brook, who was joined by Hollywood star Michelle Rodriguez and singer/ actress Preeya Kalidas.
