Most Predictable End
Queen ElizabethAscot predicting game, I believe): the Flame Lily. To be honest, it's my first disappointment of the week from her; like many of you, I thought we might see the Australian Wattle Brooch as a little tribute to Black Caviar, the Australian mare with an impressive record that won the Diamond Jubilee Stakes and was the undisputed star of day five. But that's just a small quibble in an otherwise fun brooch watching week.
Best in Yorkish Excess
Autumn PhillipsDiamond Jubilee service, and possibly the same hat with some changes made to it. The Linleys and Chattos were also present; Sarah repeated the outfit she wore to Zara's wedding, and Serena repeated the coat she wore to William's wedding.
Though I'm not sure she attended day five, I can't finish out Ascot without a tip of the hat to Princess Haya. She had another first place finisher, making three for the week, and she's had just as many fabulous outfits throughout the week. Apart from the Queen (who is sort of a default winner in these things), Haya wins my overall best dressed award.
