The 151st running of the L'Ormarins Queen's Plate will be held at Kenilworth Racecourse on Saturday, 7 January, 2012. First run in 1861 in honour of Queen Victoria, the event will be a day of fine dining and world-class entertainment.
The white-and-blue elegance that will underpin the Best Dressed and Best Hat competition will be judged by some of South Africa's leaders in the fashion industry, namely: Sam Walker (PopYaCollar), Emily Bell (Marie Claire), Jacqui Kolbe (Milliner) and Tammy Tinker (British Vogue). The day will be captured by professional photographers in what has become known as The L'Ormarins Moment.
