One of the most fun and inspiring moments of working at a magazine is when you get to spend time with your heroes, crushes and change- makers. And it’s usually at some gala, glitzy event or glam celebration. As one of the judges of this year’s SA Style Awards, I got to hug, clink champagne utes and just hang out with some of my favourite people who we get to feature in the pages of this magazine. The creativity and hard work of influencers, celebrities and entrepreneurs like Manthe Ribane, Petite Noir and Rharha Nembhard, Laduma Ngxokolo of MaXhosa and previous Grazia cover stars Amanda du-Pont and Riky Rick are the stories we love to share with you. And man, can they dress up a storm too.
I spent the evening taking many style notes. And talking about attending events and parties, dress code or not, sometimes it’s a little tricky to find something to wear. But not to worry – our fashion story on pg 46 has you covered. On a tight budget? Go to Graziadaily.co.za to shop the looks for less.
If you, like me, leave your festive shopping (never mind holiday plans) to the last minute, our gift guide (pg 27) is full of ideas for the perfect present for your loved ones, and a few of the goodies are also up for grabs! Don’t forget to enter our competition to win a Jacuzzi (pg 70) – all you have to do is subscribe to enjoy Grazia for 12 months on your tablet, smartphone or desktop.
Till next week,
