It’s the Queen’s favourite time of year: Royal Ascot 2018 takes place this week. From Tuesday 19 June to Saturday 23 June, celebrities will be flocking to Berkshire for this year’s races. Royals, television presenters, models, actresses and socialites alike will be donning their finest attire to take in a race or two. But they can’t just throw on any old outfit: Ascot’s strict dress code is legendary and attendees must only wear clothing – and headgear – deemed acceptable by the organisers. This year, Bardot-style necklines are banned (yes, the same neckline Meghan Markle wore to Trooping the Colour) while jumpsuits have been given the green light. Women can wear trousers, but they must be part of a co-ordinated look. No mini dresses are allowed, and dresses should have at least a one-inch shoulder strap. Fascinators, however, are still a no-go. Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for non-stop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day. For Twitter updates, follow @YahooStyleUK .

Forget what the celebrities are wearing at Royal Ascot this year - all we really care about is the biggest and best hats.
From Gigi Hadid's Versace catsuit to Whoopi Goldberg's hot pink co-ord, these are the best dressed celebrities of the month.
Whether it’s Meghan Markle’s first appearance or the Countess of Wessex tripping over and being caught by the Duchess of Cambridge, the royal family’s antics at Ascot hit headlines every year. For Meghan’s debut Ascot ensemble, the 36-year-old wore a bespoke, belted dress by her wedding dress designer Claire Waight Keller for Givenchy. The Queen was equally on point on day one of Ascot 2018, in a bright yellow coat and matching hat.
The Duchess of Sussex has flown the sartorial flag for the great British high street on several royal engagements and here's where you can shop her most regal looks.
With an aunt as iconic as Princess Diana , you’d be forgiven for shrinking into the sartorial background – but not Lady Kitty Spencer. The cousin of Prince William and Prince Harry has been making her own name for herself within fashion circles the last few years, but it was her appearance at the royal wedding that brought her to the world’s attention. Wearing a hand-painted green, floral Dolce & Gabbana Alta Moda dress with a ornate Philip Treacy hat, the 26-year-old hit the top of many royal wedding best dressed lists. Lady Kitty has been buzzing on the social scene for a while now, often sitting front row at fashion shows and sipping champagne at the fanciest parties. Also a model, Lady Kitty has become a muse of the creatives behind D&G, first appearing in their autumn winter ’18 show as part of the DG Millennials squad – along with the likes of Lottie Moss, Pixie Lott and Rafferty Law – and posing in their spring summer 2018 campaign. Signed to Storm Management, Kitty has also been bagging campaigns with the likes of Bulgari and editorials with Vogue and Elle . What’s more is that away from the camera, Kitty has been honing an enviable personal style of her own.

Festivals: the one place where a slick of mascara and a fresh blow-dry looks more odd than glitter boobs and unwashed hair
From Prince Charles' Welsh hideaway to the Queen's Balmoral estate, these are the royal residences to add to your bucket list.
Russia might not be high up on your list of holiday destinations – but it should be. The largest country in the world, it spans 11 time zones over a stretch of 6,000 miles. The vast expanse of land means it’s possible to go from gazing at world famous artefacts to trekking volcanos or being surrounded by history in only a matter of hours.
From Victoria Beckham's penchant for supersized sunnies to Colleen Rooney's white jean-clad wardrobe, the WAGs stole the sartorial trophy back in 2006.
Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen are quite possibly the world’s most beloved, not to mention on point, twins. We’ve watched them grow up on both the big and small screen and witnessed their triumphant foray into the tempestuous world of fashion design. Against all odds, they cracked the style industry and have succeeded in scooping numerous lauded awards for their luxe label The Row, moving away from the industry that made them famous seamlessly.So, as the duo celebrate their 32nd birthday today, we peruse their evolving, co-ordinating and fashion-forward style. ...
If you don’t follow Diana Ross ‘ daughter, Tracee Ellis Ross, on Instagram, you should. The 45-year-old actress, who currently stars in US comedy series ‘Black-ish’, has accrued quite a following thanks to her activism (she was one of the founders of the Time’s Up movement) and extraordinarily glorious sense of style. Fabulous isn’t a word we use lightly, but it’s the perfect way to sum up Tracee’s wardrobe. This is a woman who will wear it all. One minute she’ll be glittering on the red carpet in a slinky Balmin number and the next she’ll be making a red, satin Valentino tracksuit work. Her looks are bold, unapologetic and creative, but, from time to time, they also help hammer home a point. Case in point: an all-black Marc Jacobs ensemble that she wore as part of the Time’s Up movement’s black dress code to the 2018 Golden Globes. Tracee Ellis Ross is the bold style icon we all need in our lives. Read more from Yahoo Style UK: Follow us on Instagram and Facebook for non-stop inspiration delivered fresh to your feed, every day.
