    Background: THE RACING WAS, OF COURSE, THE CENTRE OF IT ALL ON GOLD CUP DAY AT THE ROYAL ASCOT RACE MEETING TODAY (THURSDAY). BUT THE TRADITIONAL PARADE OF FEMININITY AND FASHION PROVIDED A SPLENDID DISTRACTION.

    THE BLITTER AND THE SHOW TOOK PLACE IN THE PADDOCK. THE MEN TURNED OUT IN THE INEVITABLE TOPPER AND MORNING COAT. BUT THE LADIES WERE MORE DARING THAN EVER IN TINY MINI-SKIRTS. AND THEY BRAVED DREARY GREY SKIES IN LIGHT SUMMERY MATERIALS... EXCEPT FOR THE CAREFUL LADY WHO CAME ALONG IN WATERPROOF DECKCHAIR CANVAS. BUT EVEN THAT WAS DAZZLINGLY STRIPED.

    THE MOST STRIKING OF TRADITIONAL DRESS WAS THE SARI WORN BY MISS BINA SHIVDASANI. BUT SHE HAD GOOD REASON....SHE WAS ASKED TO LEAVE THE ROYAL ENCLOSURE YESTERDAY WHEN SHE ARRIVED IN SHOCKING PINK BERMUDA KNICKERS.
