Dressing the C4 presenting team for Cheltenham
BY STYLE EDITOR, ON 11 MAR 2010 11:32 DEBENHAMS NEWSCOMMENTS
Fashion and the races is a well-established combination which is why we jumped at the chance to dress Channel 4′s Racing presenting team for the Cheltenham horseracing festival from March 16 – 19.
Channel 4’s Festival coverage starts daily at 8am with The Morning Line, with afternoon action live from 12.30 – 4.20pm. Alice Plunkett and Alastair Down will be at the helm supported by the most popular broadcast team in racing that includes John Francome, 7-time Champion Jockey and author, alongside John McCririck, one of the most recognisable faces of racing, known for his flamboyant hats and attire.
Watching the racing is only half the fun, all eyes will be on the presenters and their Debenhams outfits as they broadcast from the Cotswolds. If you’re off to the races later in the season it could be just the place to look for emerging occasionwear trends and to get some ideas on what to wear. Will you be brave enough for a stand-out fascinator?
Whether it’s glamour at Royal Ascot or a family day out at Royal Windsor our extensive occasionwear ranges should be your first stop. We’ve got fashion and millinery from British designers like Pip Hackett, Jasper Conran and Julien Macdonald to guarantee you look the part.
I popped over to our Personal Shopper lounge while Nick Luck was being given the VIP treatment. He showed me a couple of the outfits that had been picked out for him. Very suave don’t you agree?
