It was certainly a star studded event with model and television personality Cindy Nell, who won the award for Best Dressed Woman wearing a Jason Kieck creation along with a fascinator by The Little Hattery. Actress Natalie Becker looked so chic in a vintage dress by Vintage In The City and Jennifer Su selected a stunning blue dress by Pallu. Liezel van der Westhuizen looked amazing in a dress by Lipsy. This year, the LQP added Best Dressed Man to the events festivities and it was comedian Siv Ngesi who became the first man to be honored with this accolade. Television and radio personalities who also attend included Janez Vermeiren, Leigh-Anne Williams, Kia Johnson and Ayanda Tini to name a few. Also invited to enjoy a day at the races was models Tracy McGregor and Lyndall Jarvis with her fiancé surfing legend Jordy Smith and the radiantly pregnant Lee-Ann Liebenberg with her husband Nicky van der Walt as well as SA cricket legend Herschelle Gibbs with his girlfriend Sherrin Davie. The L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate annually brings together friends and horse-racing enthusiasts with a backdrop of elegance, style and sophistication.
