The start to 2017 eventing has begun.
My only quarrel with this year’s event is that the strict tradition of Blue & White attire was not followed by may race goers and despite the ROAR openly publicized, organizer’s of the prestigious event allowed all variations of coral floral and many many poorly made mix match of shorts to enter the race grounds.
Both Ladies and Gentlemen are required to dress in a manner appropriate to a smart occasion adhering to the dress code of blue and white. Outfits should be elegant.
Ladies are required to dress smartly and encouraged to wear a hat or fascinator. Stiletto heels are not recommended due to the terrain. No jeans, shorts or fancy dress is permitted.
Gentlemen are required to wear jackets and ties, cravats or a smart, open neck shirt and trousers. Linen suits and a waistcoat with the archetypal panama can also be worn. No jeans, shorts, sleeveless shirts, open shoes or fancy dress is permitted.
The L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate reserves the right to bar access to guests who are not dressed in appropriate racing attire and within the blue and white dress code.

This combined with a poor use of the
#LQPFestival2017 #LQPCT2017 (too long we felt) made finding great looks on the day a little harder than anticipated.
Alas, enough of the dramatics.
Those who made the effort and got the memo, local celebs included went ALL OUT to impress. Celebrity guests who donned their best Blue & White included Siv Ngesi, Maps Maponyane, Jeannie D and Leigh-Anne Williams as well as our best dressed below.
