the 154th annual l’ormarins queen’s plate

01.18-LOrmarins-Queens-Plate-Bonang-Matheba-Maps-Maponyane-Ryk-Neethling-Cindy-Nell-Liezel-Van-Der-Westhuizen-Denzil-Jacobs

Without a doubt the event I look forward to most in January each year, the prestigious and ever elegant 154th L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate took place last week in Cape Town. I was graciously invited and immediately made my way to Hilton Weiner to discuss outfit options, as this event’s dress-code is strictly blue and white. As always, the kind folks at Hilton Weiner prepared a few options for me and you can see what we ended up with on my Facebook Page, but back to the event itself.

No surprise, South Africa’s favourite personalities donned their finest blue &¬†white, not forgetting intricate fascinators and hats,¬†as the races and betting got underway. In the indulgent Stud Club Marquee, guests included Bonang Matheba¬†(wearing Gert-Johan Coetzee),¬†Nthato Mashishi, Jo-Ann Strauss¬†(wearing Stefania Morland),¬†Cindy Nell, Natalie Becker, Jimmy Nevis, Ryk Neethling (with his gorgeous lady), Liezel van der Westhuizen and the ever dapper Mr Maps Maponyane, just to name a few! Socialites socialized, horse-racing enthusiasts placed bets and I, well I enjoyed an afternoon with some amazing people and friends, getting to do what I love most, take photographs. I think what’s most appealing about this event is the simple elegance of it all, it’s Hampton’s style in Cape Town with amazing food and drink and even more amazing company. No frills, just effortless style. This was my fourth consecutive LQP, and it remains a firm favorite. Don’t ask me about the races tho, I don’t remember seeing any horses *wink*!
