Jozi celebs come out in their numbers for D’usse Cognac launch

What was billed as a celebration of opulence became a top-class fashion showcase.

It was all roof-top parties, open bars and designer clothes at the South African launch of D’usse Cognac in Braamfontein, Johannesburg on March 30.

Actress and Metro FM radio host Khanyi Mbau did a terrific job as MC.

Among the guests were some of Jozi’s freshest faces, including BET A-List presenter Ayanda Thabethe, Danine Naidoo from E! Entertainment presenter search; Vuzu TV’s Nomuzi Mabena, DJ Spectacular and Dimples all draped in their finest threads.

What was billed as a celebration of opulence became a top-class fashion showcase.

Metallic: a timeless trend which adds sparkle and gloss to any look. Whether on a pair of jeans or jacket like Nomuzi Mabena rocked it, the metallic trend is all that stands between standing out in the crowd or falling victim to the surroundings.

Print: it’s always advised that when deciding on a print, start small and wear one particular item paired with a solid item of clothing, like Metro FM DJ Spectacular did. However, should you feel confident, play around with different prints to create a clash.

Crop: The cropped look if perfect for petite ladies like Ayanda Thabethe, who want to give off the illusion of being tall. From just a glance at her two-piece suit, she looks slightly taller than normal.

Her choice of a bob haircut also adds definition to her face and elongates the neck.

Loose fit: Pop music sensation Tamara Dey, in high-waisted loose black slacks and crop top, looked perfect when going from the day to night. For curvy women, high-waisted slacks are a great way of removing attention from the curves and more on to the entire look.

Sports lux: Made popular by American pop singer Ciara and the fabulous Rihanna, the sport lux look allows for a flirty and funky way of wearing a pair of jeans and white tee. Just look at Danine  Naidoo’s  interpretation. The choice to substitute the T with a lacy camisole top to show off her décolletage. However, the use of the off-the shoulder bomber jacket draws the focus to her face and beautiful neckline, as well as preventing too much skin showing.
