south african model, roxy louw turns 29!

Last week I was invited to attend my dear friend, South African model, Roxy Louw‘s 29th birthday party in Cape Town. A low-key celebration, with some big names in South African entertainment, the guest list included tv presenters Jeannie D, Siv Ngesi and Liezel van der Westhuizen to name a few, though it was certainly a family and friends affair with Roxy’s entire family in attendance as well as close family friends. It was a festive evening as guests enjoyed drinks, snacks and of cause the birthday cake was a treat!

Roxy Louw's 29th Birthday Party

Blazing her own trail, Roxy has become a well know celebrity figure in South Africa, with features and covers for magazines such as FHM, Maxim, Sports Illustrated with both local and international prints. Lately, among other business endeavours, she has been spending some time globe-trotting as she showcased Charmaine Taylor’s Legacy Collection jewellery line to an international audience. Happy birthday Rox!

muhammad ali joins louis vuitton’s core values campaign

Louis Vuitton (Core Values) Muhammad Ali by Annie Leibovitz

Travel is a fundamental and defining value of Louis Vuitton’s more than 150-year heritage. The Core Values campaign was launched in 2007 as a long-term restatement of Louis Vuitton‘s legacy as the pioneer of the Art of Travel. Travel is an emotional experience, a process of self- discovery. We all have the potential to accomplish our own personal journeys. Naturally, the Core Values campaign features personalities of truly global stature ranging in professions and backgrounds. Above and beyond their celebrity status, they are individuals who are widely recognized to have lived full and interesting lives – people who have accomplished personal journeys of their own. The latest personality to feature in Louis Vuitton’s Core Values advertising campaign is among the most outstanding athletes the world has ever seen – indeed, he was crowned “Sportsman of the Century” by Sports Illustrated in 1999. Louis Vuitton is proud to present “The Greatest™”: Muhammad Ali.

For Louis Vuitton, Muhammad Ali was photographed by Annie Leibovitz at his home in Arizona, watching one of his grandson who, wearing a pair of boxing gloves, stands proudly as if waiting to enter the ring. An athlete, artist, humanitarian, and outspoken political figure of unwavering integrity, Ali changed the world around him and remains a figure of inspiration to millions.

love crushing on adam levine

Adam Levine, Jennifer Love Hewitt

Jennifer Love Hewitt was recently pretty outspoken about her crush on the Maroon 5 singer and The Voice judge, Adam Levine. Hewitt told Ellen DeGeneres earlier this month, “I just read two days ago that Adam Levine is single again . . . I’m just saying,” joking that Levine would “probably never speak to me” after she publicly bared her heart following his breakup with Sports Illustrated model Anne Vyalitsyna. “I heard about that,” said Levine in response on a later Ellen show, “That was aggressive.” “It was really sweet and flattering. Beautiful life, you know, when a beautiful woman says nice things about you,” Lavine continued, but drew the line when DeGeneres offered to set them up, saying, “I’m cool.”
