Off to the Races!

Well summer's officially here, and what better way for the well-heeled to spend their leisure time then to hit the race course? In this case, it was more work than play for La Rai as she was representing Longines, however here she is at the Prix de Diane in Chantilly, France. I am glad that she didn't shy away from the oversize topper, and I am happy to see what appears to be a shoulder-grazing hair cut. That said, other than the peach color, I didn't care much at all for her grandmotherly ensemble complete with frills and ruffles. It is boring. A smart, tailored look would have been far better. I know I've said it before, but she could really take a cue from the Duchess of Cambridge for fashionable attire suitable for formal, daytime events. Don't believe me? Here's a look at the Duchess' impeccable attire at the Epsom Derby (Prince Wills makes an excellent accessory dontcha think?). And one more for good measure: the lovely DofC at the Order of the Garter Service in an elegant pale blue-grey dress with matching coat and requisite headpiece. Photos: getty, just jared
