On Saturday the Hollywoodbets Kenilworth Racecourse was a sea of blue and white for the 163rd L’Ormarins King’s Plate.

The horse-racing event, the first for the year, is one of Cape Town’s most prestigious gatherings of racing enthusiasts and fashionistas alike.

The dress code for L’Ormarins King’s Plate has always been chic and sophisticated but most importantly it’s all about the blue and white theme.
