Before I started blogging, I was still very present on social media. I liked keeping up with what’s happening in the fashion industry locally and worldwide. There was one glamorous event that I always loved looking at from afar and wished that I was there- The South African Style Awards. It is an event that honours the most stylish people in our country for that year, and the who is who of the countries fashion and beauty elite gather to celebrate style with a night filled with fun and champers. I was ecstatic to be invited as a guest of L’Oreal and Hyde Park Hotel to join in this year’s festivities and boy was it a lot of fun!
The evenings theme was “YSL 50 years of Beauty and Edginess” and that’s what inspired me to pick this black dress. I was lucky enough to be dressed in this gorgeous Forever New dress with a bit of a daring cut and a wrap design. I decided that if I was going to wear a simple hue, I needed bright accessories to make the outfit pop. I wore my fuchsia Christian Louboutins and added a bright pink and orange statement necklace and pink handbag.A little spritz of the new YSL “Black Opium” fragrance finished off my look for the night.
Of course I had my magic fairies helping me transform for the night! Vita Liberata, which is an organic, non-toxic spray and self-tan brand provided me with glowing skin for the night(full post on my experience coming this week!). And my super-talented friend Sasha from Porcelain Rouge Make-up and Face Value Academy did this amazing make-up! I wanted to go bold with my eye-make and make the eyes really pop, so we went with this heavy smokey-eye and just a light coloured lip. I loved it!
I will be sharing a little more about the event and the winners on the blog later on in the week, and today I just wanted to share my outfit with you guys and thank my amazing fairies from Forever New, Vita Liberata and Porcelain Rouge make-up for making me look so glam last night! I couldn’t have done it without you guys!
