This Week's Ultra-Fabulous Ascot Outfits Are Exactly What I Needed

Event dressing isn't a term we have used for the past two summers. This week, however, Royal Ascot went ahead, marking the grand return to dressing up. Ascot can be difficult to dress for at the best of times, as the dress codes for attending the races are strict. In the Royal Enclosure, guests must wear straps of one inch or greater, fascinators are not allowed (you must wear hats with a solid base of 10cm) and dresses must be below the knee or longer. While these dressing regulations can, at times, feel a tad old-fashioned, there is something rather fabulous about putting on a formal dress and hat. 

Given this is a royal event, it's no surprise that members of the royal family were in attendance, including the Queen, Sophie Countess of Wessex and Princess Anne. As for the trends we've seen on the racecourse, many of the guests stuck to classic, My Fair Lady monochrome styling, wearing white and black dresses with black leather accessories. The number of Chanel bags in the images below also indicates how fancy this event is. Another brand which proved popular at Royal Ascot this year is the Vampire's Wife—we spotted several guests in its signature ruffle-trim dresses.

If you want to look at the most fabulous outfits we've seen since 2019...keep scrolling to see our favourite Ascot outfits from the racecourse this year.

How Actress Dascha Polanco Has Made a Name for Herself in Hollywood

Welcome toSecond Life, a podcast spotlighting successful women who've made major career changes—and fearlessly mastered the pivot. Hosted by Hillary Kerr, co-founder and chief content officer at Who What Wear, each episode gives you a direct line to women who are game changers in their fields.

In 2013, Netflix released a series that would forever impact television: Orange Is the New Black. Actress Dascha Polanco quickly became a fan favorite as she played the role of Daya Diaz for seven seasons of the cultural phenomenon of a show. Aside from her esteemed performance in Orange Is the New Black, Polanco has been in several notable films, including Golden Globe–nominated film Joy and Oscar-nominated film The Irishman. But she's not stopping there. Polanco is set to star in the upcoming superhero thriller Samaritan alongside Sylvester Stallone and the highly anticipated, newly released film adaptation of the musical In the Heights.

As an established—and incredibly talented—actress, Polanco has dedicated her platform beyond Hollywood. She is an activist and advocate for the Latinx community and women's rights, and she passionately supports mental health, sex positivity, and awareness for domestic violence. Throughout the years, Polanco has learned to embrace herself for who she is, and now, she is determined to inspire and help others do the same.  

But before her big break on Orange Is the New Black, Polanco was going down an entirely different career path as a manager in New York City hospitals, studying to ultimately become a registered nurse. In fact, Polanco arrived at her Orange Is the New Black audition in her scrubs and managed to maintain her job at the hospital throughout the entire first season of filming. Tune in to the latest episode of Second Life to hear what life experience catapulted Polanco into taking a chance on acting after spending years in the medical industry and how she continues to pave her own way in Hollywood.
