Grand National 2014: Aintree Races Fashion, Day One

The Grand National 2014 meeting at Aintree racecourse in Liverpool kicked off on Thursday and as always, the fashion - including the hats - was definitely statement-making (and it's not even Ladies' Day yet.)


Princess Anne and Coleen Rooney were both spotted enjoying a jam-packed day at the races. At least 60,000 spectators are expected to attend for the main event, the Grand National, on Saturday afternoon.

Want to see what the racegoers have been wearing so far? It wasn't exactly sunny, but that didn't stop the girls embracing summer styles and sandals (or evening gowns, for that matter...)
