The highly publicized split between business woman Uyanda Mbuli and designer partner Gert Johan Coetzee last year made the two a big attraction at SA Fashion Week. They may not be rivals anymore but celebs, fans and fashionista’s were looking forward to critiquing and comparing their collections.
This year was the 2nd time that Diamond Face Couture, the Fashion label owned by Uyanda Mbuli was showing at SAFW without collaborative partner Gert Johan Coetzee, the man who was believed to be the talent in the partnership.
Uyanda’s show closedI must be honest, the collection was a trip! There was no cohesive theme that stringed the collection together. The line just seemed obscure.
Her fashion label collaborated with with the sporting retail company Cross Trainer. While I understand how they were trying to create an urban and edgy look this didn’t translate as well on the ramp. Dion Chang described the collection theme on his blog as “corporate secretaries who go out for a binge night (on a school night), and come daybreak, haven’t quite come off the drugs and have to dress hastily for work.”
Gert Johan Coetzee’s collection was dramatic with Miss South Africa Bokang Montjane and Bonang Matheba as models. Besides the dress modeled by Miss South Africa there was no sign of the signature of the Tutu skirt. While I enjoyed the collection I overheard someone in great disappointment asking for the 20 minutes of her life back.

Last week I was fortunate enough to receive an exclusive invite to the Nine West & YFM Shopping experience at the Nine West store at The Zone in Rosebank. Nine West teamed up with YFM to officially launch their new store. We were served champagne and canapes as we shopped. Well, I shopped with my eyes while the rest of the guests looked for shoes and accessories to buy with their one-night-only 15% discount voucher. Bonang Matheba hosted the event and YFM’s DJ Josi Chave and DJ Warras played some tunes while we shopped and mingled. Local celebrities such as Uyanda Mbuli, Rosie Motene, Pam Andrews, Claire Mawisa and Kendra attended the event and I got an opportunity to chat to them on camera.
Congratulations to Nine West and YFM for hosting such a chic event. And many thanks to my colleague Lebogang Tsele for producing this video. Enjoy!
P.S. wait for the video to buffer after you’ve pressed play now.
Having ditched the Wonderbra event, Fifi moved onto the highly anticipated launch of Playboy magazine, which has once again decided to re-visit our shores after a 16 year absence.
It was not quite the dazzling scene that I expected! I anticipated something akin to the PLAYBOY Mansion parties that we see on the Entertainment channel – busty bunnies dressed in multi-coloured bustiers with matching ears, exclusive guest list featuring celebrities and socialites galore PLUS cocktails flowing in abundance…
The bunnies were just regular girls dressed up for the event – as much as they were mostly pretty – maybe models should have been hired as serious eye candy for the anticipated male readership that they are hoping to attract.
I’m not sure if it was because there were so many parties last night, OR local schlebs decided to just have an early night – mentionable names were few and far between – Christina Storm, Jen Su, Uyanda Mbuli, Dineo Ranaka, Babalwa Mneno, Carmel Fisher, Linda Moeketsi, David Bullard, Kuli Roberts and Claire Mawisa were the only faces that I recognised.
Tracey McGregor however provided glamour and oozed charm as she was announced as April’s PLAYBOY cover-girl. What a lovely young lady – absolutely gorgeous – spectacular images of her in the launch issue too.
April playmate, Amy Tara Bridger shyly made her way around the room – looked like she may be wanting to replace that boyfriend that she dumped months ago. Maybe she should wait till she visits the legendary PLAYBOY Mansion in California when she competes for the ultimate title of Playmate of the Year – who knows what she could come home with OR not come home at all!
The party fizzled out early and most I heard were heading to the Jameson Global Party which was not that much fun either – see our next post coming soon…
Twitter and Facebook went crazy on Saturday night after the Real Goboza aired Dr Rey’s comments on Uyanda Mbuli’s nose when he said: “Uyanda should be careful when she turns on her bed so that her nose does not break on the pillow”.
I have it on good authority, that Dr Rey had absolutely no idea of what Uyanda Mbuli or Khanyi Mbau looked like when he was asked to give comment on both of their procedures.
He gave some rather general advice to those who had nose jobs or boob augmentations, and warned those who had multiple procedures to be careful.
Real Goboza gets a ‘Big ups’ for provoking some strong reactions to their bit on the babes’ surgery.
But the lovely ladies have little chance we think of making a big legal deal out of all this. Let’s face it, Dr Rey who admits to having had nasal surgery himself, ‘nose’ exactly the right advice to give to those who go under the knife for beauty. He’s the expert.
