The ladies @ Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe

Joanne Black Style: Jodhpur-style trousers, YSL blouse, jacket and bag, Georgina Goodman boots and a white Hermes scarf

A day away from Paris Fashion Week is no day off from the Paris fashion scene. Those French ladies were out in force with every Chanel bag imaginable at the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe – Europe’s premier middle-distance horse race. It was Ireland’s day, however, after Sea the Stars – ridden by 50-year-old jockey Mick Kinane – crossed the finish line an impressive two lengths ahead of runner-up Youmzain. With the Irish flag flying high, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house!
