Just got back from the Puma Social Club and the place was rocking, packed to the rafters with media, celebs and ping pong lovin’ peeps.
One of the first people I
stalked ran into was Liezel van der Westerhuizen. Chica is even more gorgeous in the flesh than on the telly and, despite being tall enough to give glamazon Michelle McClean a run for her money, she rocked a killer pair of bright yellow patent heels. In fact, my one regret is not snapping a pic of her shoes.
Did you know that Liezel does triathlons? As a result, her top summer beauty tip is ‘sunscreen, sunscreen, sunscreen’. Her absolute fave is Dermalogica Solar Defense SPF15 wipes. ‘They’re so easy to use’, she says. ‘I just whip them out and rub them on me mid-cycle or run’.
Seth tells me that he’s just been sponsored by Mini. Apparently they’re hooking him up with a new Countryman 4×4. ‘It’s got internet radio – so you can listen to 2Oceansvibe radio while you drive!’, he says. The Muse, his gorgeous girlfriend, was there too, but we didn’t get a chance to chat. I did manage to wheedle this out of him though – Miss Pop Ya Collar’s favourite fragrance is Chanel no. 5…)
Oh! And here’s Craig da Sousa. How hot is this oke? I had no idea he was such a looker.
Dude tells me he’s got a new band called Magic Carpet Ride. You can catch them at Daddy Cools every odd Sunday.
Here’s the boerie roll itself. The chips were a bit too slap for my liking, (Dax also wasn’t impressed), but the rolletjie itself was delicious. And I really do love cheap n’ nasty chilli sauce, the kind you only find at those deliciously dodge vendors that pop up on Long Street after dark…)
Once I’d shoved that big boy down, I got into full on celeb stalking mode. Thus, I present you with a shot of me looking like a Smurf next to Schalk Burger.
The lady in red is Vicki Kemp. She’s a PE gal soos ek, not to mention a big deal race car driver. You’ll also spot Herschelle Gibbs hanging out on the side. Have any of you bought his book yet? I hear it’s flying off the shelves…
There were a lot of other Famous Sport-type People there, but I’m utterly shite in that department. (Yonks back, I once mistook Breyton Paulse for a porter at the airport. To his credit, the guy helped me carry my bags from one side of OR Tambo to the other… )
Now let me tell you about the shoesies!
Puma showed off their new Creative Factory line. It’s a totally cool concept in that you get to design your own shoe – then they make it for you! To show off their skills, they invited a few local celebs and artists to create their own kicks.
I was particularly taken with Lindiwe Mabuza-Suttle’s collection, but that’s mostly ‘cos I she’s an absolute doll and I’m totally biased towards loving anything she does.
These babies belong to Jack Parow.
My boyfriend is still at his touch rugby practice and doesn’t yet know that I spent the evening schmoozing and boozing with the likes of Jack. I can’t wait to show him the shot below ‘cos he’ll just die a thousand deaths. (Dude’s a crazy fan, prone to breaking out embarrassing T-rex style dance moves the moment Cooler as Ekke cranks up…)
Oooh! I also
stalked the shizz out of ran into this darling creature; fashion photographer Margeurite Oelofse. Get a load of her look!
I reckon Miss O was the coolest-looking girl and the party, coming on strong with a Roxette-style bleached mop and impeccable red lippie. (Her colour du jour is MAC lip pencil in Redd). Her awesome ‘do, however, is courtesy of Hair in Upper Kloof street. ‘Roxanne from LA’ is her colourist and Lindsay gives it the chop.
Yesiree, robot red lippie seemed to be trending this eve.
MarieClaire’s gorgeous ed, Aspasia Karras, was sporting MAC lippie in Ruby Woo. You can’t really see it here, but she went the whole ‘Dita’ with beautiful, ever so slightly winged eyeliner. ‘It’s L’Oreal’s liquid liner and it’s amazing!’, she said. ‘I love that it’s cheap, super chic and has the best brush’.
Her friend, ‘wardrobe therapist’/personal stylist Natalia Keet gave her a little touch up before we snapped a piccie, which, alas, came out ultra blurry. (Sorry girls, this was towards the v. end of the eve and my veins were flowing with vodka…)
‘I’ve got a beauty tip too!’, said Natalia. She swears by rosehip oil, saying she rubs it into her face twice a day to get a lush-looking glow. Her other skin saving secret? Carboxy shots! It’s similar to botox, but is more natural in that it’s a shot of carbon dioxide gas as opposed to… well, poison. ‘Dr. Wilkinson at the Renaissance Clinic is the BEST!’
In all, this was a fun night out. Reckon you should pop in over the weekend and brush up on your ‘vintage sports’ skills…
