Last night I went through to the Rand Club in down town Johannesburg for the launch of new Brutal Fruit flavour called Cheeky Cranberry. Together with radio/ TV personality and local ambassador Bonang Matheba, reality stars Kim and Khloe Kardashian jetted in for the event too. Before I get to that, let me just tell you about the venue. As far as I am aware, the Rand Club in town used to be an exclusive ‘boys club’. Until recently no women were allowed into this place, but that is a thing of the past and thankfully so. It oozes with elegance (old colonial style) and my cousin, who is an architect major, was in her element. She said this venue is so well designed, preserved, and that it was.
The organisers transformed the venue into a pink, chic affair. The invite said
Chic and Stylish with a cheeky flirt of pink. I don’t own a lot of salmon eh I mean pink clothing, but I did manage to use a tie I bought a couple of months ago. I got a couple of good comments, so maybe salmon is the new blue haha! Now just continuing on the pink front, imagine the stuffed animals in the bar area being kitted out in pink attire- necklaces, hair bands etc. Seeing those things at the best of time makes me a bit nauseas, but seeing a kudu and warthog wearing pink headbands was on another level.
When we walked in we were given two vouchers- one to go and ‘shop’ at the stall they had set-up. It was stocked with scarves, braces, hats and bow ties and a whole lot more. Once kitted out, we could then move to the photo booth, where the photos would be developed straight away. Another tick in my books. In the bar area, guests could get an array of pink inspired drinks- the Cheeky Cranberry slush seemed to hit the right spot, as I saw many a martini glass floating about.
At about eight thirty we made our way downstairs to wait for the ‘Dash Dolls’ to arrive. Bonang played host for the evening. Just on a side note, I admire this woman. She’s so young and yet she’s achieved so much in her short time on this earth. Modeling, presenting on both TV and radio; she’s being booked for gigs and appearances left right and centre and now this. This must be one of her biggest achievements to date, so well done to you B! She did a fine job and she handled herself with such class and style when the Kardashians arrived. Speaking of which, the crowd outside went mad when the Mercedes carrying two of Hollywood’s biggest names arrived. Flashing lights and cameras were going off everywhere and everyone wanted a piece of them. The ladies were on stage to congratulate the winner of the hot new Audi A3, but to be honest I don’t think anyone was concerned with the car winner, the attention was on the Dash dolls ☺
WATCH A VIDEO CLIP OF THE KARDASHIANS AT THE BRUTAL FRUIT CHEEKY CRANBERRY EVENT:
When they went inside, their security had a field day trying to fend off eager fans. These girls are used to this attention, so naturally they handled it well. Kim took Khloe’s hand and they edged their way through the crowds. Kim went upstairs pretty quickly, but Khloe stopped and signed copies of their memoir Kardashians Konfidential.
