Champagne bubbles and breakfast
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and luxury-Champagne maker GH Mumm made sure the women in media were well catered for at the Icon of Victory breakfast held at The Codfather restaurant at the Sandton Skye hotel.
On arrival, guests were greeted with a glass of chilled Champagne. I might have had a few glasses before the real breakfast, which was a great spread for guests to choose from. There were three options: a pancake breakfast; the chef’s breakfast, which I enjoyed; and the salmon breakfast. A touch of deep House music set the tone for a classy affair and the old-school hip-hop jams weren’t bad either.
Many a selfie was taken as guests pouted and smiled for their cameras, capturing their best sides at the morning shindig. Among the guests were actress Terry Pheto, DJ and presenter Penny Lebyane, and businesswoman Gerry Rantseli-Elsdon, who turned up looking chic for the event. Sports presenter Romy Titus’ box braids were everything and more for this season’s hair trend.
Actress and presenter Pearl Thusi arrived fashionably late and I couldn’t stop staring at her fingers after the image she had posted of a sparkler of a ring, which sparked rumours of an engagement. But there was no sign of the ring on her finger.
Guests had the opportunity to mingle and chat, and start their day after an inspiring talk.
What a stylish way to round off Women’s Month.
