Model Rosanna Davison and businesswoman Katie Jane Goldin made their way to Punchestown earlier today in an EC-120 helicopter – flown by none other than Katie Jane’s entrepreneur brother, David Gold.

The duo were on hand to judge the racecourse’s much-anticipated Ladies Day competition – which this year was sponsored by Gold Fever hair extensions – and decided to skip the traffic by hitching a lift with David. And as SHEmazing!’s exclusive video from inside the helicopter shows, the group enjoyed some stunning scenery en route.

They weren’t the only ones to travel to Naas in style either. Racehorse owner JP McManus also landed his chopper in the vicinity.

Punters in attendance battled unseasonably cold weather, albeit interspersed with bursts of sunshine, but the fashion on offer certainly defied the unforgiving conditions. In the end, 19-year-old Kirsty Farrell from Newry shone brightest, snapping up the opening day’s Best Dressed accolade, and bagging an impressive Gold Fever prize: €1,000 worth of premium hair extensions plus an Instyler styling tool.

Kirsty, who also finished as a Best Dressed runner-up at Fairyhouse earlier this month, now goes through to Friday’s grand final where she will line-up alongside winners from the rest of the week. Each will be hoping their stylish ensemble lands them an all-expenses trip of a lifetime to Makanyi Lodge – a luxury safari retreat in South Africa’s Kruger National Park – as well as a year of Gold Fever hair extensions.

The judges both looked seriously on-trend themselves: Rosie wore a dress by Alex Perry and sourced from the Ivory Closet, while Katie Jane, who is six-months pregnant with her first child, opted for an embellished number from Ted Baker. Each also accessorised with towering Christian Louboutin stilettos, and hats from Suzanne Ryan millinery.

Although by 5.30pm the champagne tent was heaving with revealers tucking into generous sea-food platters and bottles of chilled Bollinger, the pair were by then back in their chopper – returning directly to the Goldin’s family home near Bray.
