The beginning of the day held so much promise, with hundreds of perfectly-coiffed guests filing in for the biggest event of the race calender, heels intact and fascinators in place.
But fast forward a couple of hours and the scene was quite different, as dress hems became dishevelled, heels were ditched and some thirsty ladies took to swigging directly from the bottle.
After a day of balmy weather, heavy drinking and cheering on their favourite horses, many of the once-glossy guests were certainly looking slightly worse for wear as the event drew to a close.
While the official dress code insists that skirts are of a 'modest' length, defined as being no more than an inch above the knee, some women chose to openly defy the rules.
Exceedingly short hemlines and thin skirt material made for dangerously skimpy dresses, exacerbated by towering heels and inopportune gusts of wind.
It seems that a day of glugging champagne and parading around in needle-thin stilettos also took their toll on the feet of many of the female guests, who chose to discard their heels and shuffle out of the exit barefoot.
The dress code also strictly stipulated 'no fancy dress', which many of the revellers blatantly ignored with gaudy fascinators on display, one woman's decorated with graphic playing cards.
Caught up in the festivities, some of the guests carried on drinking, despite seemingly having lost their companions, and there's no doubt that more than a few men and women will be nursing sore heads tomorrow.
It all got a little too much for some, with a few who had enjoyed a tipple too many deciding to close their eyes on the grass rather than waiting until they got home.
Other racegoers were still full of energy and paraded around in skimpy strappy get-ups with tiny hems, cheering, smoking, and gulping their drinks as they made their way out of the course.
WHAT THEY SHOULD HAVE WORN:
Ladies not in the Royal Enclosure are still advised to dress for a 'smart occasion'.
The dress code bans bare chests, fancy dress, trainers and insists on skirts of a 'modest' length - which it defines as being no more than an inch above the knee.
