Without a doubt my personal favorite equestrian event on the social calendar in South Africa, The 153rd L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate takes place this weekend, 11 January 2014 at the Kenilworth Race Course in Cape Town. Guests including some of South Africa’s biggest names in entertainment, media and television cordially dress to the nines in blue and white, as this stylish event’s dress code demands.  In it’s own league as a horse-racing event, the Queen’s Plate over the years have hosted celebrities including former Miss South Africa & television personality  Jo-Ann Strauss, Jennifer Su, the gorgeous (and for the second time, radiantly pregnant) Lee-Ann Liebenberg with her husband Nicky Van Der Walt.

I look forward to sharing champagne and canapés while enjoying the horse races with good company at the 153rd Annual L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate as Spoit Hair Salon takes care of my styling and Hilton Weiner ensures that I am dressed to impress. Ladies and gentlemen, dress your best in blue and white and you may be entered into the Best Dressed Best Dressed Man competitions. Fascinators out in full force as the judges are allows on the lookout for something inspiring to win in that category.
