Royal Ascot attendees stun in show-stopping dresses on Day Two of races | The Sun

ROYAL Ascot guests are back for Day Two of racing and have dialled up the fashion for the glamorous event.

Stylish Ascot attendees have dug out their fanciest dresses and gone bold with their headwear as they enjoy the racing in the sun.

Every Ascot ticket-holder is required to abide by the venue's very strict dress-code – stating that all dresses should be a "modest length" and straps should be "once inch or greater".

And the restrictions don’t seem to be getting in the way of guests pulling out all the stops with their jaw-dropping looks.

The gates open at 10.30am each day and the first race is at 2.30pm.

The last of the seven races on each day will be at 6.10pm.
