If the previous post was not enough to convince you to attend this lavish event, this review sure will make you reconsider next year! The winelands hosted a grand affair with the annual Le Kap Lifestyle Fair in association with Lamborghini, becoming one of South Africa's premier lifestyle events. With a free flow of  Veuve Cliquot for VIP guests,  and delectable fair prepared by our very own celebrity chefs, the event was meant to stimulate just about all the senses. When the invitation says "Royal Ascot," hats are almost obligatory. Taking shelter against the heat, we were lavishly entertained by the sounds of Sterling EQ, a trio of musicians needing very little introduction. The music was followed by a stunningly beautiful parade of fashion, all by local designers. Craig Port presented a feast for the eyes showing his latest swimwear collection, modelled by bodies looking like they've been chiselled to perfection. With perfect summer weather, guests had the option to picnic in Victorian style on the well manicured lawns where they could indulge in fine food and a choice of wines presented from various estates. Like usual, Jacques Le Grange Couture held us in awe with his spectacular collection in Black, doing the industry proud. The classic Italian label, Luisa Spagnoli, displayed a beautiful collection that would have been the envy of Grace Kelly. Our own Thula Sindi hosted an equally beautiful collection with some pieces that might become collectables. Guests were not in the least deterred by the heat, daring it out in the open, only to be scorched by the rays of the unforgiving African sun to watch the show jumping event. The tents were filled to the brim with chic and glamorous attendees enticing their taste buds with the delicacies on offer.  The multiple aspects of the event, the scenery, combined with life's finer things, translated to a superb event, a true showcase for style.
