Upon arrival, Nix and I were greeted by a bevvy of Believe beauty’s that were all glammed up with crazy-ass Marie Antoinette-style hair and frosty-looking eye make-up.
You can’t really get the full picture in this shot as it was a bit smoky in the club, but the effect was pretty striking. Also, they were handing out a blue, litchi-flavoured welcome cocktail that made use of Belvedere vokda.
The club had also gotten a bit of a Belv’s make-over in that branches similar to those on the bottle itself where suspended from the ceiling.
As for le peeps on the scene, I ran into Associated Magazine’s gorgeous PR guy, Jaco-Louise Groenwald who looked dashing as always along with DJ/covergirl Brigitte Willers.
Party circuit regulars Jeff ‘The Bod God’ Tsoutsos and Omesh Authar were there too…
Actor Bjorn Steinbach was out and about too. Next mo you’ll be able to catch him and Lee-Anne Summers in The Mercy Seat, a play set in post-9/11 America, at the Nassau Theatre in Cape Town.
I also schmingled with fellow beauty blogger and celeb make-up artist Eloise Dreyer…
…and Jasna Zellerhof, AKA Fashion Jazz. Check out her new hair cut…
Anyhoo, once I’d drained my welcome freebie, I realised we had to buy our own drinks and, as it turns out, a single shot of Belvedere is a whopping 38 buckeroos! Can you ‘Believe’ it? Thus, as
I’m a total cheapskate suddenly wasn’t all that thirsty anymore, I decided to track down more of the blue drinks instead. Clearly Belvedere is for a very rich discerning type of drinker… ;-) Jeff, however, gave me a seriously top tip: Next time I’m at a club and some oke offers to buy my gold-digging girlies and I a dop, we should ask for a ‘double Belvs and Coke’. If he can pay for the round without crying, he’s a total keeper… ;-)
Still, the club’s regular patrons had no issues with the price tag and, as the night continued, the room was lit up with an array of ‘sparklers’. This is because every time a bottle of anything was bought, it was served with a mini firework attached to it.
I’ve now taken to referring to these sparklies as ‘Sugar Daddy flares’… V. handy in helping you spot exactly which oke you want to sit next to. Hee hee…
Oh! And a bunch of Black Swan-style ballet dancers popped out at some point to do a mod ballet/jazz mix on the windowsills of the club…
At around 12pm, the club had filled to bursting and moving around on the dancefloor became a bit of an issue. Also, the queue for the bar was five peeps deep across all sides. Being the claustrophobic type, Nix and I decided to hit the road… but not before downing a fistfull of these yummy salmon blinis.
Big thanks to PR star Anina and the girls from Vivid Luxury, this was a nice reprieve from this weeks ‘rusks n’ socks couch combo… ;-)
