With the theme Made to Conquer, the J&B Met 2014 held at the Kenilworth race-course in Cape Town drew record crowds all dressed to the nines! Celebrities including Lalla Hirayama, Bonang Matheba, Maps Maponyane, Jennifer Su, Minnie Dlamini and Poppy Ntshongwana to name a few flew down to Cape Town from all over the country to indulge in the festivities. So many interpretations of the theme this year, it as all about fashion, design, style and most of all celebration as J&B pulled out all the stops to create a VVIP experience. The Sunglass Hut Inner Circle Marquee once again claimed the top spot for some of South Africa’s biggest personalities, with a VIP experience that included good music, courtesy of DJ Sox, good food, drinks and each guest received a R2000 Sunglass Hut gift voucher to purchase sunglasses on the day. I stopped by the Sunglass Hut marquee to catch up and have a few laughs with Janez Vermeiren, Wedaad Adams, Bailey Schneider, Cindy Nell, Gina Myers, Graeme RichardsBoity Thulo and Sue Duminy to name a few. Thank you Sunglass Hut for a fantastic Inner Circle Met experience!

The view of Sandton from the penthouse was exquisite and with champagne and good company, the party started off in style. Later, Jon invited all his guests to continue the celebrations at Johannesburg’s hottest club, The VIP Room. To raise funds for a charity very close to Jonathan, the public were invited to join him at The VIP Room, and proceeds of ticket sales donated to Princess Alice Adoption Home. Happy birthday Jon!
