On Saturday, 1 March 2014, South Africa’s elite gathered at the prestigious Val De Vie Estate in Paarl, Cape Town to indulge in luxury, canapés, champagne, fashion and of cause a polo tournament at the Veuve Clicquot Masters Polo 2014. This year, as the official fashion sponsor of the VCM2014, D’Ore Boutique (situated in Sandton, Johannesburg) graciously dressed some of our most influential celebrities including model and actress Tanya van Graan, international model Katryn Kruger and model Cindy Nell. International television personality Jennifer Su sparkled in a dress by Vanessa G London for D’Ore Boutique. Wearing a gorgeous summer dress selected from her new online boutique, Just For Tonight, Sue Duminy looked amazing. After the recent release of her first fragrance for women, “Jeannie in a Bottle” (now in stores at Clicks nationwide), television personality Jeannie D, looked radiant in a dress also by D’Ore Boutique.It was wonderful spending the afternoon watching polo and sipping Veuve Clicquot champagne with SA singing sensation Jimmy Nevis, journalist Clayton Morar, owner of Pallu Boutique (situated in Sandton, Johannesburg) Peta Eggierth-Symes, international actress Natalie Becker, presenter Tracey Lange, celebrity stylist Jasna Zellerhoff, beauty blogger Leigh van den Berg, dance music duo Locnville (Andrew and Brian Chaplin), Olympic Gold Medalist Ryk Neethling, Misty Louw, television personality Liezel van der Westhuizen and so many more, with a guest appearance by model Roxy Louw.

And if all that wasn’t luxurious enough, the official vehicle sponsor for this event was none other than Bentley, offering chauffeur transfers to SA’s elite. It was certainly a highlight on the South African social calendar all put together by the team at Vivid Luxury PR, headed by Anina Malherbe.

Special thank you to Hilton Weiner SA for dressing me at this event and Spoilt Salon for styling.

Jo-Ann Strauss Productions (JSP) will launch the second online presenter search on 1 July 2013 during the final episode of this season’s “Glambition with Jo-Ann Strauss” on e.tv. The episode focuses on “Fast Fame” and how social media impacts the world we live in. Guests will include SA media icons Bonang Matheba, Dineo Moeketsi as well as Nondumiso Tembe, a South African actress and musician who has appeared in top international productions like “True Blood” and “NCIS”. Katryn Kruger, a South African beauty that has modeled for Vogue, Louis Vuitton, Oscar de la Renta and Prada will also be sharing her secrets to remaining grounded. She has returned to SA to complete high school after she was scouted in a shopping center at the age of 16. Buhle Moletsane, the winner of the 2012 online presenter search, will also be a guest.

The online presenter search competition encourages aspirant presenters to upload their auditions which they can record on their cellphones, smartphones, digital cameras, etc. onto YouTube and to enter via the website www.presentersearch.com. Jo-Ann held the first #OnlinePresenterSearch in 2012 which became the world’s largest competition of it’s kind with hundreds of entries being uploaded and 4 finalists being selected. The finalists traveled with Jo-Ann Strauss and Bonang Matheba to a five star resort in Zambia where they spent 3 days learning about media and honing their presenting skills. This year, the competition is open to entrants from across the African continent and auditions are to be uploaded in English and must be 30 seconds long.

The four finalists chosen will be traveling to Reunion Island with Jo-Ann and a still to be announced celebrity mentor. They will be participating in adventure sports and shooting a mini-reality series. This will be broadcast via the website http://www.presentersearch.com and the various social media channels and the public will be invited to vote for their favourite finalist and win fantastic prizes. The winner will become an online presenter for e.tv and gain valuable experience and exposure in this way. Samsung will be the main sponsor and will supply various mobile devices for the finalists to use on the island to be able to share the action via social media. The finalists will be staying at the LUX* Ile da Reunion which is the island’s only 5 star resort. They will fly there directly from Johannesburg with Air Austral.

The winner will be announced on 20 September 2013.
