The former Made In Chelsea star and racing superfan chose a stunning designer look for another day at the Gloucestershire racecourse.

Cheltenham may have scrapped its strict dress code for the first time in its 200-year history, but Toff, 28, didn’t let that stop her from dressing to the nines.

She showed off her look on Instagram before heading to the world-famous racecourse, wowing in a checked Emilia Wickstead two piece.

She added a wide-brimmed brown hat from top milliner Jane Taylor and carried a Hermes bag.

She completed her look with a chic brown cape from Joseph and Boodles diamond earrings.

Toff quipped in her Instagram caption that she hoped her designer look would withstand the revelry of the day.

‘Let’s hope I don’t ruin this beautiful two piece at the Guinness village later,’ she joked.

Carol Vorderman meanwhile put on a classy display as she headed out to enjoy Ladies Day at Cheltenham Racecourse. 

The former Countdown presenter, 62, donned an elegant cape-like tweed jacket coat with a fur lining and added a belt for a formal look at the Gloucestershire venue. 

The festival has scrapped its strict dress code for the first time in its 200-year history – but Carol made sure to still bring glamour to the event as it moved into its second day on Wednesday.  

She teamed the age-defying display with brown gloves and trousers, as well as swede knee-high boots.

She embraced the more relaxed dress code but still kept her look dressed up with her honey tresses in a typically perfectly-styled blow-dry and a glam make-up palette with a smokey-eye. 

She opted for a palette of neutral tones, wearing a furry bag and smart hat in muted colours.

Ladies Day is when guests typically put together their most fashionable ensembles for a stylish day out. 

The historic society event, which dates back to the early 19th century, has unveiled a new ‘inclusive’ dress code this year, which organisers hope will make spectators feel ‘confident and at-ease’ for their visit.

This means dresses, heels and hats are no longer mandatory, as organisers hope to attract a younger crowd to the venue, welcoming jeans and trainers. 

In the past, entry into some enclosures has required the wearing a jacket and tie while wearing trainers has also been frowned upon. 

The announcement comes at a time when racecourse are battling to stem a fall in attendances. 

Nevin Truesdale, Chief Executive at The Jockey Club, said last month: ‘Horseracing has always been a sport enjoyed by people from all different backgrounds and it’s really important to us to be accessible and inclusive. 

‘We hope that by no longer placing an expectation upon people of what they should and shouldn’t wear we can help highlight that racing really is for everyone.

‘For those who visit our venues, a day at the races is all about spending quality leisure time with friends and family and we believe people enjoy themselves best when they feel relaxed. A major part of that is wearing clothing which you are comfortable in.

‘While The Jockey Club has a rich heritage and history it is also a forward-thinking organisation which places a great emphasis on diversity and inclusion and always seeks to reflect modern trends.

‘So, when we reviewed this area of the raceday experience, it has been clear to us that enforcing a dress code seems rather outdated in the 21st Century in the eyes of many of our racegoers.

‘Of course that doesn’t mean we are discouraging people from dressing up for a day at the races if they want to.’

‘This is about giving people a choice and the opportunity to come racing dressed however they feel most comfortable and confident, while also bearing in mind the challenges regularly presented by the British weather.’
