Certainly a highlight every year, the J&B Met 2015 took place at Kenilworth Racecourse on 29 Jan 2015, but the festivities started the day before for me and a few friends. The amazing folks at African Pride Hotels graciously invited me to spend the weekend at their luxurious 15 on Orange Hotel. The J&B Met 2015 saw hundreds of horse-racing and fashion enthusiasts join some of South Africa’s most celebrated personalities enjoy an afternoon of entertainment. I was joined by talk show host Khanyi Mbau, media personality Jen Su, comedian Siv Ngesi, actress Boity Thulo, TV personality Leigh-Anne Williams, TV personality Maps Maponyane, media personality Lalla Hirayama and so many more at the exclusive J&B Met Main VVIP Marquee to enjoy amazing food and entertainment. With so much happening all at the same time, we wondered off to the prestigious Racing It’s A Rush VIP Marquee to spend some time mingling with Cindy Nell, Liezel van der Westhuizen and many more. The fashion was incredible and fantastically imaginative with best dressed couple prizes and entertainment by MiCasa. Thank you Hilton Weiner for dressing me to J&B Met 2015.

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*!
