ome of South Africa’s most fa­mous faces spent last Sun­day af­ter­noon sip­ping chilled Moët & Chan­don Cham­pagne while gaz­ing at the city of Joburg from the fancy Munro Bou­tique Ho­tel in Houghton.

They had been in­vited to watch the men’s French Open ten­nis fi­nal in style, and most ad­hered to the dress code of cream and white. The event was an in­ti­mate af­fair and guests were served tem­pura prawns, plum-and-chicken ke­babs, beef carpac­cio rosettes, deep-fried pi­mento olives, beef slid­ers and smoked salmon mousse cor­nettes.

The Moët flowed all af­ter­noon, with wait­ers en­sur­ing that if you couldn’t get to the bar, one of them would find you.

Ac­tor and model Maps Maponyane was the charm­ing MC for the af­ter­noon, keep­ing those not glued to the game on the gi­ant flatscreen TV up­dated on the ac­tion.

Guests in­cluded Live Amp’s Luthando “Loot­love” Shosha, award-win­ning actress Katlego Christo­pher, me­dia per­son­al­ity Jen Su, busi­ness­woman and so­cialite Edith Ven­ter, for­mer Miss SA and busi­ness­woman Baset­sana Ku­malo, actress So­nia Sed­ibe, de­sign­ers Gert-Jo­han Coet­zee and David Tlale, celebrity make-up artist Nthato Mashishi, and chore­og­ra­pher and Idols judge Somizi Mh­longo, who ar­rived fash­ion­ably late and in a chauf­feur-driven Bent­ley.

A glam and fab­u­lous af­ter­noon was had by all.
