TV presenter Francesca Cumani sets the fashion standard at Ascot yesterday, on a day that also brought out royals and even inspired a marriage proposal.

ITV racing host Francesca was classy but cool in a black-and-white outfit.

Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman were spotted too.

Princess Anne was among royals visiting, though the Queen stayed away. When she does appear, Ladbrokes is taking bets on the colour of her hat, with green at 3/1.

And Sam Churchman had a big win when girlfriend Kara Swift agreed to wed.

Simon Cowell's close pal Sinita was also in attendance at today's event and was pictured laughing and smiling with the music mogul and his partner.

The 52-year-old singer looked sensational as she modelled a sky blue long-sleeved gown as well as a contrasting orange and blue hat.

The songstress also attended today's event alongside her mum Miquel Brown, who also opted for a gorgeous frock and yellow hat.

Good Morning Britain star Charlotte Hawkins also put on a glam display as she ditched the television studios to cover the event live at the races.

The gorgeous television star opted for a yellow and nude gown and matching yellow headpiece as she beamed from ear to ear at the event.

Charlotte was also joined by presenter Mark Heyes and revealed on social media that the duo will be appearing on ITV throughout the day to report from the side of the track.

Not unknown to a certain type of high-profile event, former Made in Chelsea star Georgie Toffolo was also among today's star-studded cohort.

The Chelsea native opted for a shimmery pale dress and adorned her hair with an array of flowers for the summery look.

She also finished off her ensemble with a matching white bag and certainly looked cheerful as she joined pals at the lavish event.
