So of cause I was late for¬†my hair appointment at Palladium Hair Co. last week (I mean, c’mon folks, I work on DJ time here!), but luckily my good friend and stylist Jasna Zellerhoff came to the rescue! After a few glasses of wine at their home, Tyrone Nell, his boyfriend Nic During and I hopped into Jasna‘s car and headed to the 4th Street Wines “Lightly Sparkled Launch” 1950’s themed event in Cape Town. Now, I knew from experience that 4th Street Wine¬†don’t do things half way and that this was going to be a spectacular event, and it was. We arrived and were¬†immediately whisked to the photo-wall, took some snaps and joined our friends including the gorgeous model and surfer Roxy Louw with her cousin Frank¬†Muggeridge, television and radio personality Kia Johnson, Thandie Kupe, Sue Duminy, Busi Nteyi, Matthew Hallett and many more on the dance floor.

Guests went all out in 1950’s style which made for a whimsical evening with live entertainment by Tamara Dey, delicious canap√©s, lots of candy and of cause 4th Street Lightly Sparkled Wine. It was lovely seeing so many friends including fashion blogger Clouds Drummond as we partied the evening away. This week, 4th Street Wines took the launch to Johannesburg with guests including some of South Africa’s most loved celebrities such as Jennifer Su. Of cause, the evening of fun didn’t end there, but let’s stop talking secrets, haha! Thank you 4th Street Wine for a lovely evening (and most importantly your¬†delicious new vino)!

Special thanks as always to Hilton Weiner and Levi’s SA for making sure I always look good!

It always adds a little extra festiveness at AFI¬†(African Fashion International)¬†Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Cape Town when you see a few friend saunter down the catwalk, and Ruald Rheeder‘s floral inspired Spring/Summer 2014 collection included some of my favorite faces. Television and radio personality Leigh-Anne Williams, models Tyrone Nell,¬†Brent Thompson (have you seen his recent Men’s Health SA cover???), another Men’s Health cover boy Ryan Botha (also co-owner of Point Break Fitness in Cape Town)¬†showed off their beautifully toned bodies at Ruald’s show. The new boys on the block, The K2 Twins (Alex & Charlie¬†Kotze) also made an appearance. Despite his selection of models, it was certainly Ruald’s bold choices in design and his ability to keep his eye on pulse of internationally trending fashion that kept the audience captivated. Hey Ruald… I need a new designer for Summer, hint, hint!!

Keeping to a simple neutral palette in his womenswear collection, Ruald’s expression of summer is epitomized by simple elegance. From light flowing evening dresses to trendy day wear and provocative swimwear, this collection, in my opinion lends itself to the 1950’s and 1960’s demure elegance and sophistication, which can be dressed up for a night out on the town.

Special thanks to CelebsSA. Also thanks to Levis Strauss SA and Ruald Rheeder for dressing me for the evening.
