Hollywood comes to town

2011-02-05 07:36

The gorgeous Le Chatelat mansion in Sandhurst was the not-so-secret location for V-Entertainment presenter Nonhle Thema’s launch of her new reality show, Nonhle Goes to Hollywood. Guests were taken to the venue in limousines. Very Hollywood, doll!

I bumped into So You Think You Can Dance presenter Sade Giliberti, who’d ditched the wig and the dress from the show, and opted for a more relaxed style. Sporting a nautical-inspired T-shirt, ­fedora and brogue shoes, she gets 10 points for staying true to herself, but gets an epic fail for not sticking to the dress code, which was Hollywood glam.

Someone who did stick to the dress code was designer Uyanda Mbuli, who wore a signature Diamond Face Couture mini-dress in glitzy gold, which showcased her nice long pins.

See, you don’t have to be a 20-year-old starlet to show some leg.
As for the boys, hip-hop entrepreneur Slikour was looking, well, slick. The grey cardigan, white V-neck T-shirt and black jeans did the boy with the dimples much justice.

His friend, however, Shugasmakx, needs to visit a stylist urgently. Baggy clothes and dreadlocks are so passe. As for that taxi driver leather jacket .?.?.? cringe!
Other guys who were looking fab were Cosmo calendar model Lunga Shabalala. His Ephymol jacket was well-fitted and matched his tailored jeans.

Liquideep singer Ziyon sported geek chic, which has come to define his style. The houndstooth shirt, bow tie and skinny jeans were nice to look at, but the dark sunglasses? It was indoors, and at night.

Enough already!

Fellow performer Da LES looked tres chic in a black knee-length jacket, also wearing a bow tie.

As for Miss Party, Thema opted for a one-shoulder glitzy black and green mini from an LA boutique, and shoes from the Kardashian label, Shoe Dazzle. The hair, on the other hand, made some of us want to hide in shame.

Guests were treated to seven minutes of her show and, for the most part, seemed ­impressed.

As for the food, there was a variety to choose from: artichoke quiche, Kenny Kunene’s favourite sushi (served in regular old platters), deep-fried halloumi fingers, vegetable spring rolls and tender beef kebabs.
