“It’s my 10th year at LQP, and I love how every year there is always something different.” Ben-Mazwi explained. “My favourite social event on the calendar, it always stays true to itself — a true elite horse racing event!”


Global MC and presenter Liezel van der Westhuizen, got cameras snapping with her eye catching long white gown with a blue floral pattern and low plunging neckline, along with a hand decorated white hat with blue and white silk flowers. “The Queen’s Plate was perfectly blue and white as always — and it was just a wonderful, perfect day of hats and horse racing.  I really loved the hats and fascinators,” commented Van der Westhuizen. “This year, not only did the men really outshine, in terms of their stylish outfits, but there was also a lot of African prints in the fashions this year, and I loved the African feel.”
