Dozens of visitors to the Goodwood Revival on September 7–9 entered the Country Life Best Dressed Competition in partnership with Canon – and here are the winners, as judged by professional stylist Sarah Kate Byrne.

A huge part of the appeal of a visit to the Goodwood Revival is the period dress worn by thousands of those who turn up – and at this year’s event, some of those who made the effort came along to the Country Life stand to enter our competition to find the best-dressed fans at the delightful Sussex venue.

Here we present the winners, and a selection of our favourite images from among the runners-up.

Best-dressed couple: Amy Winston-Hart and Chris Vandrill

Sarah Byrne’s verdict: ‘Colour co-ordination gave Amy Winston-Hart and Chris Vandrill the edge. Both they and Frank and Pat Annabelle [the runner-up couple, pictured in the ‘best-dressed gentleman’ section below] looked to have made a huge effort with authentic pieces, but the winners’ complementary ensembles were perfect for the Revival.’

Best-dressed lady: Nikki Redcliffe

Sarah Byrne’s verdict: The runner–up Kathryn Clarke [below, with her companion Walter Aiken] was a lady in red who looked perfect in her 1950s dress. But hats off to Nikki Redcliffe [above] channeling Dior’s ‘New Look’ perfectly in this outfit.

Best-dressed gentleman: Frank Annable (pictured with his wife Pat)

Sarah Byrne’s verdict: Our runner-up Grant Harris was a dapper chap [below] who looked the part in his pinstripes, but the Frank Annable [above] deserves top prize in the men’s category for his natty bowler, bow tie and shooting stick accessorising. He and his wife Pat were runners-up in the couples category too.
