Butterflies also loomed large - with many choosing huge representations of the insects as head gear. Contrasting coloured feathers were another popular choice for those who wanted elegance above all else.
But for those choosing to make a statement in the style stakes, taste was left firmly out of the equation. One racegoer went for a full-on Marie Antoinette inspired wig, complete with ruffled Courtesan dress.
While another chose to have a version of the Jodrell Bank telescope made out of fuschia pink silk and strapped to her coiffed hair. But the most classic designs beat the outlandish. Black and cream outfits topped with bright hats were the most popular choices of the day.
