Certainly a highlight every year, the J&B Met 2015 took place at Kenilworth Racecourse on 29 Jan 2015, but the festivities started the day before for me and a few friends. The amazing folks at African Pride Hotels graciously invited me to spend the weekend at their luxurious 15 on Orange Hotel. The J&B Met 2015 saw hundreds of horse-racing and fashion enthusiasts join some of South Africa’s most celebrated personalities enjoy an afternoon of entertainment. I was joined by talk show host Khanyi Mbau, media personality Jen Su, comedian Siv Ngesi, actress Boity Thulo, TV personality Leigh-Anne Williams, TV personality Maps Maponyane, media personality Lalla Hirayama and so many more at the exclusive J&B Met Main VVIP Marquee to enjoy amazing food and entertainment. With so much happening all at the same time, we wondered off to the prestigious Racing It’s A Rush VIP Marquee to spend some time mingling with Cindy Nell, Liezel van der Westhuizen and many more. The fashion was incredible and fantastically imaginative with best dressed couple prizes and entertainment by MiCasa. Thank you Hilton Weiner for dressing me to J&B Met 2015.

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 new music video includes cameo’s by Archbishop Tutu, Idols judge and SA Music Awards CEO Randall Abrahams, actor Gail Nkoane of ‘The Wild‘ and television personalities, Bonang MathebaJen Su and Lalla Hirayama as well as Hugh Masekela, Kurt Darren, Liquideep, Arno Carstens, Prime Circle, and Thandiswa Mazwai to name a few.
