The social and sporting highlight of the Irish calendar, Puncherstown Festival is surrounded by glamour. Bollinger’s Best Dressed Lady competition at the 2016 Punchestown Festival will highlight the charm of the occasion, to take place from Tuesday 26th April to Saturday 30th April at Punchestown Racecourse, Co. Kildare.
A decadent prize awaits the lucky winner: she and a guest, will enjoy return business class flights to France and a private chauffeur directly from the airport to the Champagne region, where there they will have a private tour of the Bollinger estate. Perfectly reflecting Bollinger’s philosophy that “Life Can Be Perfect”, the Best Dressed Lady and her plus one will enjoy a personal Champagne tasting and lunch with the experts at Champagne Bollinger, followed by a luxurious overnight stay and a gourmet meal in the nearby historic city of Reims. Then they will be chauffeured to Paris, where they will enjoy a weekend of luxury accommodation and Michelin-starred dining.
To top the indulgence, the Bollinger Best Dressed Lady will receive not only a year’s supply of Bollinger Special Cuvée, but also the limited edition 007 James Bond bottle of 2009 vintage Bollinger, an homage to the world’s favourite connoisseur.
The search for the Bollinger Best Dressed Lady will be held over the first four days of the Punchestown Festival. A finalist will be selected each day and then progress to the grand final on Ladies Day, Friday 29th of April. All finalists will receive a fabulous, custom-made Montgomery Millinery hat worth over €200 each, along with a luxury Bollinger goody bag.
Dick O’Sullivan, General Manager, Punchestown Racecourse said, “We are delighted to have such an amazing prize on offer this year thanks to our sponsors Bollinger. With ladies accounting for almost half of the attendance at our festival, the fashion element has become a really exciting feature of what is widely considered one of the social and sporting highlights of the year. We look forward to welcoming Ireland’s most stylish ladies dressed to impress at the Bollinger Best Dressed Lady competition at Punchestown.”
