Scene City: Stars sparkle at Bond affair

2012-11-24 13:37

Don’t you just love a man in a good suit? Well, I do and on Thursday night it was a feast for my eyes as the male guests donned their James Bond-type suits for the movie premiere of the latest 007 release, Skyfall.

The invitation insisted on a black tie dress code and for once most of the guests stuck to the theme, with a few exceptions.

From the yummy actor Ty Keogh, who MCed the event before the movie, to Thomas Msengana, David Kau, motorsport star Gugu Zulu, Loyiso Bala, his brother Zwai Bala, Leanne Manas’ hubby, Marc Menelaou, Lunga Shabalala and many more arrived in black fitted suits. The female contingent didn’t disappoint either.

The fact that Bond girl Bérénice Marlohe was there didn’t bother them as they also looked smart.

Unathi Msengana was in a bronze David Tlale-sequined number with a slit to flash some leg, while Lalla Hirayama also wore a DT sheer jumpsuit that flashed her great body.

The Wild actress Minenhle Dlamini was the epitome of the word “sexy” in a fitted black dress with a sheer chiffon detail on the side to show that underwear was not on her menu that night. Goodness only knows how Itumeleng Khune let her go out on her own in that sinfully sizzling Asanda Madyibi number.

Inkaba actress Weza Solange wore a nice green dress while TV newswomen stuck to the trusted black – Leanne Manas in an empire line dress while presenter Tanya Nefdt wore a black lace shirt over black pants.

Loyiso Bala and his pregnant wife, Jennifer, were glowing with happiness. Meanwhile, Real Goboza’s Phat Joe tried to act like he wasn’t with gallery owner Thandi Sibisi, but you could tell by the way they matched in the casual outfits they wore to the event.

After the formalities, the stars watched the three-hour movie before heading for the afterparty at Sandton City’s VIP.
