As one of the official sponsors of the L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate 2015, Cape Town’s most prestigious horse racing event, SKYY Vodka gave 12 lucky social media fans the chance to start 2015 off on a glamorous note.

The weather played along with plenty of sunshine and a gentle breath of wind, for the 154th annual L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate. Cape Town’s elite decided to style up for the fashionable affair that took place on the 10th of January 2015.

The atmosphere was eclectic, with a combination of chic fashionistas, as well as high rollers there to bet some serious money on the horse races, it is an equestrian event after all. Blue and white was the usual timeless theme for the social event of the year.

White predominated with the ladies, as they put their best fashion foot forward in head to toe white ensembles. The gentlemen exuded timeless elegance in their summer tailored suits, more than likely their first formal suit up for the year ahead. Fancy hats were also a popular choice with SA celebs and the fashion elite alike.

SKYY guests were granted access into the Style Lounge, they also had access to the horse races and electric after party, where they could party in style with their friends.   The elegant blue and white theme was also carried out in the décor, which added to the sheer sophistication of the exclusive event.

The dedicated hashtag for the day of the L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate was #SKYYQueensPlate, where our winners could capture and share their stylish moments with others.
