Vintage looks and outfits made in Norfolk wowed judges in the best dressed competition.

The annual Royal Norfolk Show competition sponsored by intu Chapelfield attracted huge numbers of beautifully dressed showgoers, and four people were highlighted for especially impressing in the style stakes.

Gloria Daines, 83 and from Bunwell, and her partner Gerald Fulcher, 66 and from Shipdham, were joint winners of one of the two best dressed prizes, with Gloria wearing a pretty white 1950s dress teamed up with a lilac jacket she customised herself and matching hat and shoes, and Gerald donning a 1940s suit.

Rosemary Ison, who is in her 40s and from Swaffham, was a fellow best-dressed winner and proud to say her outfit was made in Norfolk.

Her ivory dress with black and beige floral print was from Susan Gillis-Browne in Holt and her striking hat was made by Christiane Millinery from near Acle.

The accolade of headline hat was presented to Michelle Last, 53, from Norwich, for her stunning ivory hat from Debenhams which she decorated with tulips to match her dress.
