It's Ireland; it's July; you've managed to get tickets to one of the capital's most in-demand music gigs – oh, and you'll be catching some horse-racing beforehand.

Suffice to say that's an itinerary that would make many of us break out in a cold sweat of pure wardrobe fear.

What. To. Wear.

Still, we can certainly take inspiration from Michele McGrath – who was this week at Leopardstown for the Bulmers Live event. 

Catching Jack L on stage, the model was on hand to judge the Dare To Be Different style event: you get dressed up, head along to the south Dublin racecourse and enjoy the on-course action followed by a festival-style music gig.

Up next on Thursday July 14 is Hermitage Green, followed by Booka Brass Band [July 21], The Strypes [August 4], and The Boomtown Rats [August 11].

And Dare To Be Different, sponsored by the Beacon Hotel, will run for the entire Bulmers Live schedule.

There are fabulouso prizes up for grabs on each evening too: penthouse overnight stays, dinner parties and cocktail making classes (major swoons all round, so). 

As well as emulating Michele's look, the rest of the celebrity judges (Lisa Fitzpatrick, Alan Hughes, Lorraine Keane, Triona McCarthy, and Holly White) say they are looking for contestants "to showcase their alternative concepts with a unique statement in style.

"We are not looking for classic race day fashion but alternative concepts outside those that are traditionally associated with best dressed race day fashion. We want you to showcase your individual, unique, innovative style and dare to be different!"
