Jodie Kidd’s family album offers glimpse into Epsom Derby of old

Gabriella Griffith
THE WEEKEND’S Investec Derby is racing towards us faster than a rag of newly shod colts. For those of you slipping into a dress on Ladies Day this Friday, you might be interested to hear that a £5,000 shopping spree at Harvey Nichols is on the horizon for the best dressed racegoer.

Harvey Nicks’ fashion scouts will be on the hunt for their favourites throughout the day. There’s even going to be a beauty SOS tent on the grounds should your fascinators need realigning following a morning of racing.

Someone who won’t struggle to wow the crowds with her threads is Face of the Festival Jodie Kidd. But the supermodel is no stranger to the Investec (née Epsom) Derby. Her family has been attending for almost a century. The model gave us a sneak peek at her family album and we fished out this shot of the derby dating back to 1937. It’ll certainly look a bit different when we get there in a few days.
