Fashion Police at the Royal Ascot - 20 Jun 2013
Images from the Royal Ascot horse racing festival at Ascot in southern England. Big hats and fancy frocks are an integral part of Royal Ascot and organisers of Britain's glamorous racehorse meeting want to keep it that way by charging for fashion failures this year.

Royal Ascot, a 300-year-old highlight of Britain's social calendar attended by Queen Elizabeth and other royals, has taken a stand against shrinking skirts and novelty outfits, issuing strict guidelines about what to wear to the five-day event.

Anyone breaking the rules can expect a tap on the shoulder by one of 20 dress-code assistants standing at the entrance with a not-to-be-refused offer to buy a tie or pashmina for five pounds or rent a hat or waistcoat for 50 pounds.
