YOU Spec & Huisgenoot Awards 2016

Processed with VSCOcam with a5 preset

Every year I attend the glitzy YOU Spectacular and Huisgenoot Awards held at the amazing Emperors Palace. This year however, I was pretty disappointed in the structure of the event itself. There weren’t many performances, which was a big deal for me as I would usually look forward to them each year.

Never-the-less, I tried to make the most of it in each case, and felt like a complete greek goddess in my first outfit for the Huisgenoot awards. This year I wanted to be comfortable and so that is exactly what my designer, Esmè Booyens Burn from The Mark of E, and I decided to go for. This light blue ensemble was something very out of her comfort zone as she does a lot of bridal and matric wear but we managed to pull it off like a bomb! My hair, done by Claudia at The Vanilla Pod was the cherry on top. My crown braid complimented my outfit and took my entire look to another level.

My gown for the YOU Spectacular was very much Esmè’s fortè and it just so happened that we stuck with the comfortable look but still went completely glam. Makeup done by close friend and amazing makeup artist, Angi, we had opted for smokey eye and a bold burgundy look, finished off by hollywood curls and wha-lah!


The burgundy tone of the lace complimented my partner, best friend and boyfriend, who made his dashing debut on the red carpet with me. It was so nice having some arm candy (LOL I’m kidding) But seriously, my boyfriend Rudy, was looking exquisite in Fazar Couture. This checkered blazer with the blue undertone went incredibly well with his entire ensemble. Fazar has recently shared their latest handcrafted bespoke pieces with me and I just thought I would share that with you. I love their attention to detail in their men’s wear and would most definitely recommend that you invest in one of their bespoke pieces!

Home-grown, glitzy jewellery and accessories brand; Crystal Creations, one of the official 2016 YOU Spectacular sponsors, provided even more glam for guests at this year’s event, gifting each of the nominees and presenters with gorgeous Crystal Creations and Stature sets as congratulations on their involvement in this prestigious event and their highly regarded category win. (This is where I wish I was one of the nominees lol)
