sarita glitz goes Gold

SHOULD you invest in that pair of gladiator sandals or should you be classic in your dress sense?

Well, these are some of the questions we were asking when we arrived at the Sarita Select function at nightclub INC recently.

The place was packed with models, loads of faces from the 1980s and unknown faces.

Will the glamorous shine of sequined dresses outlast 2010? Guests found out at an exclusive preview of next season's style trends presented by Sarita Select, South Africa's premium apple ale.

Several local fashion houses, such as Hein & TWO, showcased trends sweeping South Africa at the second Sarita Gold Carpet event in downtown Joburg on Saturday.

By now you should know the club since Arthur keeps on shooting videos there when he is bored. But enough old people, we gals enjoyed the launch with some stunning fashion shows featuring our local models and some really dark ones.

In addition to the exclusive runway show, guests were treated to a smooth performance by rising star Brian Temba. Model Babalwa Mnemo and soccer star Benni McCarthy were also among the guests even though I must be honest we girls did not see them as we were hogging the free bar.

The most glamorous guests were rewarded for their chic sense of style with Sarita and Iman International Cosmetic hampers, and selected glam outfits straight off the runway show.

Thanks for the invite guys, next time invite more celebs and take we girls home as we don't drink and drive.
