In case you missed the feature in The Times about the Queen’s Plate (featuring PYC!), you can check it out here:
From The Times:
This event has been deemed as one of the most stylish events on the Cape Town calendar, creating an environment where everyone will enjoy dressing in blue and white to the ‘Timeless Elegance’ theme. And of course there will be prizes awarded for the ‘Best Dressed’ and ‘Best Hat’.
Speaking to Samantha Walker who’ll be one of the judges at the 2011 event, she explained that to make a personal statement at such an event, one should not forget details.
“Anyone can simply wear a blue or a white dress but we mustn’t forget the accessories. It’s all about hats and nets and shoes and handbags,” she said.
The suggestion is for one to be yourself, and you don’t have to rethink that little strappy dress or lightweight polyester business suit. The fashion police will not be stationed at the turnstiles to turn away the more outlandish concoctions.
“It’s not about what you wear; it’s how you wear it. And there is always room for the LWD (Little White Dress) which is very now!”
The event will be celebrating 150 years since Queen Victoria donated a silver plate and 500 sovereigns to the race.
For those who are not well versed on horses, the race day will show the finest horses with the firm favourite Pocket Power hoping to win this year’s plate. This will equal the world record win of five successive titles set by the 1957 born American horse, Kelso.
Walker aka La Muse, is a buyer for Re Jeans at Woolworths, following her success at JT1 lingerie (also Woolworths). Her fashion blog, PopYaCollar is a fashionista’s view of the streets of Cape Town and beyond.
