Fashion Police have ball with fashionistas

2012-06-04 14:45

Fashion Police came to Rosebank last weekend.

Well, sort of.

The popular show’s satellite broadcaster DStv threw a special lunch in honour of the popular E!Entertainment programme hosted by veteran comedian Joan Rivers featuring Giuliana Rancic, Kelly Osbourne and George Kotsiopoulos.

The gathering of fashion slaves was at Tashas of the Firs in Rosebank.

While the razor-tongued Rivers was absent, our local funnyman Trevor Gumbi stole the spotlight with his loud wisecracks.

He managed to boss and harass a few guests while recording his Headlines gossip show.

Strangely, SABC1 also attended the event with the RGB roving report Pearl Thusi filming some interviews.

Thusi is undoubtedly one of the hottest women in local showbiz, and also one of the sweetest and humble.

Of course, when you’re that beautiful you really don’t have to be nice to people do you?

The jury is still out on her striped dress paired with a jacket though.

Fashion designer Thula Sindi, who was taking a break from preparing for Cape Town Fashion Week, also attended looking modest in his trademark shirt-tucked-in look.

What’s a party without the tireless Sonia Booth?

She was there flashing her famous smile.

Generally the fashion was underwhelming and Rivers and company would have had a field day.

For example, the striped shirt and stuffed pockets on actor Lumko Johnson would have had him nailed to the fashion cross.

The real purpose of the soiree was to announce that the show is now one hour long on Saturdays, proving once more that you don’t need a valid reason to splash out on a bash in Joburg.
