I think it's quite nice. She's a fashion student and made the outfit herself so fair play!

I can obviously see the horsey link but she has other hats I would much perfer. Someone wore this to Galway last week as well.

Maybe not everyone's cuppa tea but I think it's very classy & stylish. [img:2281vzk5]http://www.showbiz.ie/photos/2011-08-sarah-kelly-(winner--most-colourful-outfit).jpg[/img:2281vzk5]

Like the most colourful one the best. Very classy and elegant. Best dressed is nice, not amazing. There were others that were a lot nicer imo. It's a bit fussy, I think. Nice but a bit OTT and fussy. Not a winner in my eyes but obviously the judges thought otherwise! The horse hat....WTF?! :eek It's ridiculous. Looks horrible on her. Comical even.

I would love to know how the judges come to their final decision. Wouldnt have rated any of those who won, but thats just my opinion!

I wonder how heavy that hat is. Heard the best dressed one on Ray D'arcy this morning, fair play to her I like it. Really like the dress the best hat woman is wearing

I wonder too paperclips. Brendan Courtney has been a judge at the Killarney, Galway and now Dublin Best Dressed days. I definitely saw that same hat worn in Galway last week and it's not one you're likely to forget!! I'm not sure if it made the finals in Galway - maybe it did - but then it wins a week later in Dublin? The judges are seeing the same outfits and hats over and over again.

My OH got a call from a work colleague yesterday afternoon wishing me Congratulations on winning best dressed at the horse show- I look nothing like that girl, wasn't at the horse show and have never entered a best dressed in my life!

I prefer the most colourful outfit too. But fair play to the best dressed anyway for whipping it up herself - and at least it fits her right, unlike the Galway one. Cannot see the fascination with best hat though... The best dressed girl had a nicer hat. They're very subjective, these competitions. Best dressed in Brendan Courtneys eyes isn't necessarily the best dressed in everyone elses.

Anyone know where Carol Kennedy got her red dress? I would love a dress in that shape!
