Blog: Dean BestDeliciously bold

Dean Best | 18 June 2009

The bold and the bizarre are always guaranteed to turn out for Ladies Day at Ascot, but this year, the most unusual yet came from a lady sporting an edible 99 Cadbury's Flake hat.

Freya Berry was the lucky (or should I say unlucky?) model chosen to wear the hat.
