Role on races.. Style on Sunday.

Byline: Demelza de Burca's

SHE has been voted the Sexiest Female in Soap five times so Michelle Keegan knows how to turn heads.

The Coronation Street beauty, 26, is the photographers' favourite due to her dazzling red carpet appearances and romance with Essex heartthrob Mark Wright.

The sultry brunette, best known for her role as Tina McIntyre, is heading to these shores next weekend to judge the Dubai Duty Free Most Stylish Lady competition which takes place at the Curragh racecourse in Co Kildare on Saturday.

Ahead of the event, which will see the winner bag a luxury trip to Dubai, Michelle, from Manchester, has shared her top tips on racing style...

HAT APPEAL: A hat or headpiece is a must for summer racing and can really add to the overall look. Summer racegoers have a more flexibility when it comes to headwear, Fedorah, [euro]15 and if they don't want to for the more traditional hat or fascinator, they can choose a more summery straw look.

ACCESSORISE: The right jewellery can make or break an outfit and should always be the perfect finishing touch.

NATURAL BEAUTY: When it comes to daytime racing, less is always more in terms of makeup and it is important to let your natural beauty shine through.

NO NIGHTWEAR: Keep racing etiquette in mind by saving shorter dresses and minis for night-time events.

SHOES: Go for stylish but practical and if you are splashing out on a new pair, make sure you break them in before the big day.

Meanwhile, when it comes to finding the perfect attire for Ladies' Day, Littlewoods Ireland is in the lead for your one-stop shop for all things racing - from gorgeous gunas to killer heels and accessories.

Dresses slightly below the knee work best, with capped sleeves and a modest neckline also creating a winning style.
