You could be Eastside's Best Dressed Lady at the north's biggest racing festival

With the William Hill St Leger Festival just around the corner, fashionistas across the region will be preparing their best outfits in preparation for one of the most prestigious events in the horseracing calendar.

Eastside ladies who have bought their outfits from local, independent boutiques will also be preparing to battle it out for the title of Eastside’s Best Dressed Lady 2017, and for the coveted first place prize.  


Not only does the lady wearing the dress win, but the boutique that sells the victorious dress will win the coveted Eastside Best Boutique 2018 award. 


With so many beautiful boutiques in the region, and only a few weeks until the St Leger Festival, there is no better time to check out what is on offer at these independent businesses. 


Not only are their staff friendly and their clothes beautiful, but if you wear one of their outfits to St Leger you could be Eastside’s Best Dressed Lady 2018. 


And we will also be reviving our Best Dressed Gent competition. Eastside’s Terri and Rebecca will be searching for racecourse for the most dapper gents and will be uploading the nominees to Eastside’s Facebook page.  


How to enter

Take a photograph of you in your race day outfit and, along with your name and the name of the boutique you bought it from, email, upload it to Eastside’s Facebook page, or tweet it to @EastsideRMC on Twitter. A shortlist will be chosen from these entries, which will appear in the October issue, and it will be down to our readers to vote for their favourite in our online poll. The winner, who will receive a prize worth £100s, will be revealed in our November edition.

The best photos will also feature in Eastside’s society pages, so make sure you grab Terri or Rebecca and get your time in the spotlight.
