Last Thu eve I attended the GQ & Glamour Craig Port Mercedes-Benz Cape Town Fashion week afterparty. Sjoe, that’s a whole lotta name for a party, but then again, it was a whole lotta party.
This FTV sponsored soiree took place at The Reserve in St Georges Mall, a venue which never fails to impress, and was coordinated by Jill Groger from Zebra Square, a lady who’s synonymous with top class events.
Now sadly I missed out on the Craig Port show which took place earlier that evening. So this meant I missed out on these gorgeously fun & flirty dresses:
And the beautiful lines of this guy’s
pecs & abs swimming trunks:
And that ladies & gentlemen is why I have a passion for fashion. You can check out more images from the show here.
But everyone knows it’s all about the afterparty, right? While sipping on F Vodka cocktails and snacking on yummy canapes, I got to say hi to hunky sweetheart, Lushwill Rossouw, who’s just been announced as the Season 2 Bar-One Manhunt winner.
Now you might not believe this, but Alex is actually the nerdy girl from the 2010 hit SA movie, Spud! I kid you not. Check it out:
She’s certainly no nerdy girl in person, that I can guarantee you. You’ll be seeing her again in the follow up Spud movie which starts shooting soon as well as in Confinement – a film set in German occupied France, but shot right here at our very own Cape Town Film Studios. She plays a French girl who falls in love with a German soldier (played by my very own Bjorn Steinbach), but then her family locks her away in their basement to keep her away from him and she’s forced to escape to a fantasy world to survive… I’m really looking forward to seeing it.
Siv’s been a very busy man. You’ll be seeing a glimpse of him in the upcoming Nelson Mandela movie, Long Walk to Freedom, he’s got a hot new stand-up show called Race Card (which should be hitting Cape Town in October) and he’s featuring alongside Rob van Vuuren in soon to be released SA movie, Copposites.
Some of the stand out fashion moments of the evening for me came from TV/Radio presenter, MC and all round fabulous lady, Jen Su:
And then no couple does it better than Elrico Bellingan from Luxo and his lovely girlfriend, Ritza:
