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*!

‘g-star’ introduces new campaign face caleb landry jones

GStar AW2012, Caleb Landry Jones (Denzil Jacobs)

American actor Caleb Landry Jones, male face for the new G-Star RAW campaign, features in Hollywood blockbusters like X-Men: First Class and Contraband, in which he acted alongside Mark Wahlberg. He also takes on smaller underground projects, like The Last Exorcism and one of his latest projects, Antiviral, the directorial debut of Brandon Cronenberg, son of renowned director David Cronenberg. This film premiered at the 65th Cannes Film Festival. For another eagerly awaited film, Byzantium, Caleb starred alongside a former G-Star campaign face, Gemma Arterton.

The Autumn/Winter 2012 campaign is once again shot by photographer and filmmaker Anton Corbijn, whose unique vision and raw, emotional style is a perfect fit for the G-Star brand. This season Corbijn took both Caleb and Arizona Muse, the female face for the new Campaign, to the French Alps, where the shoot took place at an altitude of over 3000 metres.

The G-Star RAW Autumn/Winter 2012 collection is now available through G-Star Stores. For more information or to find your nearest G-Star RAW store please visit www.g-star.com.
