Oooh, so exciting! It’s almost time for the L’Ormarin’s Queen’s Plate!
Now, I know that all you glam, socially savvy Cape Town girls know exactly what I’m talking about. I mean, helllloo, it’s only, like, THE horse racing event of the year… (Yes, yes… I’m well aware of that other one… but if I wanted to stumble around with badly dressed, drunken plebbs, I’d spend my weekends at DecoDance… ;-P)
The Queen’s Plate is the creme de le creme, darlings! They set a strict dress code (blue and white, c’est elegant) and people actually stick to it. It draws a host of gorgeous, stylish celebs (and gorgeous boys) and the food is absolutely delish.
They also throw the best after party – this year you can rock out to Louise Carver, Zebra & Giraffe, Locnville, Gazelle and Crazy White Boy!
Oh – and there’s a horse race too. ;-P
Last year, I ate the weight of a small toddler in prawn tempura – most of which ended up in my teeth – before being introduced to Michelle McClean for the very first time. Thankfully, she was kind enough to point it out.
Michelle: Darling, you have a little hunk of something stuck in your teeth.
Me: Where?! Here?
Michelle: No, no… over there.
Me: Got it?!
Michelle: Er… no, not quite.
Me: And now?
Michelle: A little to the left..
Me: How about now?
Still, the Queen’s Plate is not to be missed! And if you’re chomping at the bit to go (hee hee), you’ll be glad to know the lovely PR peeps at Greater Than have offered me TWO double ‘Style Lounge’ tickets as well as TWO cases of vino to give away.
Can you say ‘OMG, how freakin’ fabulous?!’
These will be given away together, so basically this means two lucky winners get to go and take a partner along to the event as well as score a wondrous wine hamper containing fancy pants Protea Chenin Blanc, L’Ormarins Chardonnay and L’Ormarins Optima.
To win, simply tell me what perfume QP performer Louise Carver likes to wear in the day (and may well be wearing at the event itself). The answer is easy to find online, you’ll just have to get googling!
Send your answer (and contact deets) to firstname.lastname@example.org. Use your answer as your e-mail’s ‘subject’ heading. The winners will be drawn and notified on the 2nd of Jan.
Good luck girls – I hope to see you there!
