The sport of kings champions the queens of fashion.

Glorious Goodwood is about to become even more glorious! On Friday, 1 August, to celebrate a new racing partnership, L’Ormarins, sponsors of the L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate Stakes, are offering the prize of a lifetime to the winner of the Best Dressed competition.

The judges will be looking for an exquisitely dressed lady, looking elegant in the signature colours of L’Ormarins, blue and white. To be selected as a finalist for a chance to win this unique prize to attend the L’Ormarins Queen’s Plate race meeting in Cape Town in the height of the South African summer, the ladies will need to show that their polished look echoes the magnificence of the racing at Goodwood. A stunning hat is a must to complete this elegant look.

The prize on offer for two people includes:

•Overnight flights from London to Cape Town

•Five nights in a luxury hotel

•A private wine tasting and lunch at L’Ormarins wine estate and Drakenstein stud at Franschhoek
