IT is almost season time! The party circuit is slowly building up and I for one cannot wait to dust off my slinky sandals and finally throw on that beautiful summer dress to paint the town red (or any other colour).
Everyone has one of those perfect gal pals for lunch.
You love and admire her – however, you can’t help the gnawing feeling that someone really spent time moulding themselves to perfection.
Let me hear an “Amen”, sisters.
Well, I felt like that earlier this week when I boarded a “flight” for the Ladies Club 100 lunch at Kipling’s Brassiere – a mile high afternoon in the company of Cathy Specific (aka actor Brendan van Rhyn).
She (he?) was resplendent in a canary yellow designer stewardess uniform – with those endless legs! That’s where I got jealous. And she has flawless skin too! Cathy treated the 30-year-old club to a great cabaret of laughter and song.
From flying high with beautiful people to the high seas when Kurt Darren visited to perform in the city – broken ribs and one-eyed like a real sea pirate!
He made light of performing with dark glasses as his one eye is still light sensitive. I always thought he was yummy. However, his brother is so much cuter! None other than local lawyer Louis van Heerden – the brother is fine!
Centrestage is back with the Magnificent 7 – what a show and how magnificent is Cedric Vandenschrik. A jaw-dropping voice from such a beautifully sculpted small body, he belted out song after song. When he reached those high octaves, I realised why those pants had to be so tight!
Last Saturday I hit the red carpet twice: at Jenni Gault’s 2014 Red Carpet jewellery brunch at the Granary in Stanley Street, and later that night, I stepped out in my party shoes at Vision4 Women’s Beyond the Balance sheet gala dinner at Nangoza Jebe Hall in New Brighton.
Both sets of sisters put on the bling, baby!
The ladies at the BWA Christmas lunch the day before were given a “white Christmas” dress code for their function.
Well, you know me, I have always wanted to be invited to a “white only” party, and the prizes and lucky draws were out of this world (yummy food too, thanks Kipling’s).
To end on a sweet note, a faux pas crept into last week’s column when I forgot to mention Fatima from Sweet Apple had in fact made the sweets for Roland and Shahnaz Williams’s baby shower at No 5 Boutique Art Hotel. I really need to concentrate!
