Day two of the Grand National meeting at Aintree brought the traditional glitz, glamour and gregarious fashion of Ladies' Day.
Ladies' Day is a celebration of women's fashion, with outlandish hats, brightly coloured dresses and flamboyant shoes being the order of the day.
As always, Ladies' Day attracted some celebrity names, with Coleen Rooney back at the course for a second day - though without a traditional hat for the event, while Danielle Lloyd showed off a black fascinator.
Some racegoers decided that while they would follow tradition and wear a hat, it would be one that showed their sense of humour, rather than their sartorial elegance.
And it being the year of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee, there were some racegoers who decided to celebrate in red, white and blue, and don a union jack or two.
Of course, high heels and soft turf do not go together well and some racegoers had an uneasy time crossing the course to get to their place in the crowd.
Unlike the first day of the meeting, Ladies' Day did not go by without a bit of rain, though that did not stop spectators enjoying the races.
Some racegoers came prepared for a downpour, bringing waterproof clothing to match their Ladies' Day outfits and hats.
Ladies' Day at Aintree was the second of three days of the Grand National meeting. It was preceded by Liverpool Day, which has opened the meeting since 2010, and will be followed by the famous race, the main event of the 165th Grand National meeting, on Saturday.
