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.

Special thanks to Celebrity Services SA for the invitation to attend and for an amazing event experience!

talking secrets with jen su

Jen Su (Jennifer Su) 01

I recently visited Jen Su at her luxurious Penthouse apartment at the 15 On Orange Hotel in Cape Town. With an impressive television news anchor resume in Hong Kong, China and Asia, Jen is currently a TV News Anchor for Summit TV and Sky News “The African Business Report” as well as entertainment news presenter on SABC3’s The Expresso Show and Flash. She’s also the Hollywood Reporter on 5FM’s Gareth Cliff Mornings radio show. What many people may not know is that is that Jen Su is also a Corporate MC and Singer. “Busy and happy!  I’m MC’ing a lot of corporate events which keeps me very busy on the days that I’m not on TV or radio” says Su.

Jen Su considers herself as a strong networker and well organized person and feels fortunate to have been in a position to help others over the years, “I’m forever grateful for the many people who have believed in me” says Su. Jen has certainty been fortunate to work with some of South Africa’s biggest celebrities, walking red carpets at numerous prestigious events all over the world, including the Cannes Film Festival and New York Fashion Week, and meeting singer Mariah Carey at the One&Only Cape Town gala with Sol Kerzner. Another highlight she mentioned was teaching the Diski Dance to the Diepsloot schoolchildren during the 2010 FIFA World Cup. She recently took part in Danny K‘s latest music video and is looking forward to being one of the presenters and singers for the upcoming South African Music Awards.

A woman with impeccable style, it came as no surprise to me when she mentioned Lipsy for Stuttafords, Bvlgari for Sunglass Hut, La Mer, Louis Vuitton, & BlackBerry as her favorite brands as well as Savour Restaurant at the 15 on Orange and The Bungalow (the stunning revamp of the old La Med in Camps Bay). Su also lists Cape Town, Bangkok and Hong Kong as her favourite destinations in the world.

Just a little secret about Jen… “I love singing opera in the shower at the top of my lungs!”.

Come along as Jen Su gives us the grand tour of her gorgeous 15 On Orange Penthouse apartment.
