What with the flowing champagne, cadging a lift in a Rolls, and mingling in an atmosphere charged with abundant lashings of cologne and cigar smoke, I practically missed the announcement. But I can now safely confirm that the winner was one Sbu Leope, Yfm DJ, closely followed by the Future Fin CEO Zumaid Moti, and in third place Arie Fabian from the clothing chain Fabiani.
Here’s the rest of the Top Ten list:
4 – Grant Van Den Berg – Owner Frank Bespoke)

9 – Simphiwe Mdlalose – Director Jupiter Drawing Room
10 – Randall Abrahams – Radio Producer
BTW – Sanche Frolich won best dressed woman in one of her own creations ( Story)
Have a look at some of the lovely people at the party
I always love Lawrence Brick (Loads of Living ) and the sartorially splendid Paul Diamond ( Shine Models)
And the dapper Arthur Malan ( GQ Fashion editor)
This couple look so very sleek.
And I thought I better post a healthier pic of Ms Dey to make up for the other one.
Was the award category ‘least likely to be ejected from a Rivonia nightclub’? (And if so, what’s the guy in the white trainers doing there?) Basically an exercise in pushing expensive conventional wisdom – like GQ itself. You’d think Andre Benjamin didn’t exist.
Perhaps Mr Mazibuko fulfills the Andre 3000 category …. I like those tennis shoes though
i dunno Ophelia ive always thought that white shoes, particularly leather ones, were as good as an all access pass down Rivonia way.
and andre benjamin’s influence on fashion is a little overstated. besides wasn’t missy elliot strutting around in mismatched psychedelic golf gear like years earlier?
While we’re picking apart people’s outfits, i dont get paul diamond’s ethnowear either. makes him look acutely, painfully white.
What kind of girl do you think that I are? The kind that you meet in a bar? But even I know that only Charles Saatchi could take on that much white canvas and still get into Movida.
And stockbrokers have been wearing Hackett rugby jerseys forever. It’s what you do with it that counts.
Sanche looked amazing, but she revealed to me that she did not create the dress she was wearing, but bought it at a vintage shop in New York. It’s even more gorgeous in person – and just a slight touch of the fabric is a give away that it is a classic old dress.
where are the rest of the pictures of the Best Dressed?
